Brandon Belt (illness) is out of the Giants' lineup for the second straight game Wednesday.

Belt is dealing with a pretty nasty stomach bug and has required an IV. He should be back in there Friday after Thursday's team off day. Buster Posey is playing first base and Hector Sanchez is behind the plate.

The Nationals are calling up right-hander Joe Ross to start Tuesday against the Mariners.

Ross was surprisingly optioned to Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month, but his stint in the minors didn't last long. While he posted a 5.50 ERA over three starts in Triple-A, he threw seven innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and one walk in his most recent outing. The 22-year-old had a 7.47 ERA over three starts prior to his demotion, but he's capable of much better if he's right and is worth picking up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.

Junior Guerra (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list this week.

Good news for the first-place Brewers. Guerra, who went down on Opening Day with a right calf strain, allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and two walks in his second rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Colorado Springs. The Brewers haven't pinpointed a specific day, but he should return during the team's four-game series against the Diamondbacks later this week. Guerra was the team's best starter last season, putting up a 2.81 ERA over 20 starts.

Phil Hughes will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with stiffness in his throwing shoulder.

Hughes gave up five runs -- including three homers -- over just four innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals. He said after the game that he's feeling "a lot of the same symptoms I was experiencing last year" prior to surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but more should be known after he's examined on Monday. Hughes has struggled with a 5.74 ERA over nine starts this season.

Mike Napoli clobbered his 10th home run of the season on Sunday as the Rangers dispatched the Tigers 5-2.

Napoli finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a pair of walks. His mammoth blast into the camera well in center field in the fifth inning traveled an estimated 452 feet. Even with the strong day at the plate though, Napoli is still hitting just .188/.262/.416 with 10 homers and 23 RBI on the season.

Salvador Perez crushed a pair of home runs as the Royals fell to the Twins in the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader.

Perez had already gone deep earlier in the afternoon during the first game of the twin bill. He launched a two-run homer off of Aldaberto Mejia in the first inning then added on a solo blast in the fourth inning. Perez finished the night 2-for-4 and is now slashing .280/.321/.547 with 11 long balls and 28 RBI on the season.

Clayton Richard was marvelous in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks, surrendering just one run on five hits while tossing a complete game.

Outside of a Chris Iannetta solo home run in the third inning, Richard kept the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard. He struck out six without walking a batter in the contest. While this was a very strong performance, consistency has not been Richard's forte of late. He has allowed at least five runs in three of his last six starts, but just four total runs in his other three outings combined over that period. On the whole, he holds a 4.31 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over the course of 10 starts. A tough home showdown with the Nationals awaits him next time he takes to the mound.
May 21 - 7:59 PM

Derek Holland fired off eight innings of one-run ball in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Mariners.

Holland scattered six hits while striking out six and walking two in the strong outing. He threw 105 pitches (70 for strikes) on the afternoon. This was his first start pitching into the eighth inning in nine tries. With this outing in the books, Holland will carry a 2.47 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into a home date with the Tigers next time he takes to the mound.

Randal Grichuk finished 2-for-4 with four RBI in the Cardinals' defeat of the Giants on Sunday.

Grichuk cleared the bases with a three-run double in the bottom of the second inning before tallying another RBI on a ground-rule double in the bottom of the eighth. The 25-year-old outfielder remains an inconsistent fantasy commodity, but the raw power is there. He has 13 doubles, four homers, and 19 RBI in 40 games.

Kris Bryant went 3-for-3 with two solo home runs and four runs scored in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Brewers.

Bryant singled in his first at-bat, whacked a solo home run off Chase Anderson in his next plate appearance and then cracked yet another solo shot off Anderson the next time he stepped to the dish. The All-Star third baseman is slashing .303/.411/.587 with 10 homers, 22 RBI and four steals across 155 at-bats. That battling line is stronger on all three fronts than the .292/.385/.554 triple-slash he posted when he won the NL MVP last season.
May 21 - 6:08 PM

Didi Gregorius finished 4-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Sunday as the Yankees topped the Rays 3-2.

Gregorius swatted four singles, and one of them in the top of the second inning plated Jacoby Ellsbury for the Yankees' first run of the afternoon. The 27-year-old shortstop has managed an impressive .322/.355/.402 batting line in 21 games since returning from his late-spring shoulder strain.
May 21 - 5:46 PM

Dellin Betances notched his second save of the season Sunday in the Yankees' win over the Rays.

Betances entered in the eighth inning and struck out three of the four batters he faced to close out the Yankees' 3-2 victory. He can provide the value of a top-tier fantasy closer while Aroldis Chapman (shoulder) is on the shelf. Betances owns a sparkling 0.66 ERA and 25/9 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings this season for New York.
