Alex Rios homered for the fourth straight game Tuesday, launching a ninth-inning, two-run shot off of Nationals closer Rafael Soriano.

His blast pulled the Sox to within a run before Soriano shut the door. Rios also had a pair of singles and a stolen base in the game. The Palehose outfielder is now sporting a sizzling .407 batting mark to go along with four bombs and seven RBI. He looks to be well on his way to a nice follow-up of last year's bounce-back season.

Jake McGee (elbow) is due to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

McGee was originally slated to join Charlotte on Monday, but the Rays wanted to see a couple more bullpen sessions from the left-hander, who's coming off December elbow surgery. He's now trending toward an early-May debut, and the talented 28-year-old should move back into Tampa Bay's ninth-inning gig rather quickly. McGee posted a 1.89 ERA in 71 1/3 innings last season.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the Reds' starting lineup again on Monday.

Mesoraco drew a walk as a pinch-hitter on Sunday, but he still isn't able to catch due to a lingering left hip impingement. The 26-year-old slugger has logged just three at-bats since April 12, yet the Reds have refused to place him on the disabled list. Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate on Monday night against the Brewers.

Josh Hamilton has been spotted at the Rangers' Globe Life Park.

Which presumably means the trade sending him from Anaheim to Texas has been completed and will be formally announced on Monday afternoon. The Angels are reportedly going to eat $68 million of the $80 million owed to Hamilton. His deal will also now reportedly carry an opt-out clause for after the 2016 season. Hamilton is due back from shoulder surgery in mid-May. It's a pretty great deal for Texas if the 33-year-old outfielder can stay on the straight and narrow.

Jarrod Dyson is starting in right field for the Royals on Monday night against the Indians.

Dyson will bat ninth, but his speed should attract daily leaguers. The 30-year-old speedster is among the most aggressive base-stealer in the majors, boasting 120 steals in 361 career games (235 starts). Paulo Orlando will be on the bench Monday night.

A second opinion of Justin Verlander's MRI results confirmed the initial diagnosis of a triceps strain.

Verlander remains shut down from throwing due to lingering soreness in the upper part of his throwing arm and he won't be cleared for catch until he's completely discomfort-free. The veteran right-hander seems unlikely to join the Tigers' rotation before the end of May. Kyle Lobstein has been filling in.

Mike Napoli is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday night against the Blue Jays.

Napoli slugged his first home run of the season Saturday night at Camden Yards, but he followed that up with an 0-for-5 and two strikeouts in Sunday's series finale. The 33-year-old is batting just .169 with a .542 OPS in 18 games this season. Daniel Nava is at first base and Brock Holt is in right field Monday versus Toronto.

Edinson Volquez has dropped the appeal of his five-game suspension.

Volquez was given the five-game sentence Saturday for his role in last Thursday's benches-clearing brawl with the White Sox, during which the right-hander landed a punch on an unsuspecting Chicago player. Volquez is eligible to return to the rotaiton May 2.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is planning to take batting practice before Monday's game in Boston.

He won't be in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Monday night, but Bautista does expect to return at some point during this three-game series at Fenway Park. The 34-year-old slugger has been out since last Tuesday with a right shoulder strain. He had four home runs and 10 RBI in 14 games before the injury.
Apr 27 - 12:42 PM

Nick Franklin (oblique) expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point this week.

Franklin seemed to be trending toward minor league games early last week, but the Rays slowed his rehab as a precautionary measure. The 24-year-old was poised to open the 2015 season as Tampa Bay's starting second baseman before suffering an oblique strain at the end of spring training. He should be ready to rock in early May and may carry some value in deep fantasy leagues.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria gave his first public endorsement of manager Mike Redmond on Sunday.

Rumors swirled early last week that Redmond was already on the hot seat, but the Marlins swept the Nationals over the weekend and have rattled off five straight victories. Funny how things change. "He's the manager. Period," Loria told Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. "All teams go through bad moments. Ours came early."

Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.

Davis had to jog to first base in the ninth inning Sunday after recording his third hit of the game and was then removed. But he expressed optimism about the groin discomfort in the clubhouse afterward. "I don't think it's serious at all," Davis said. "I just think it's sore, tight. I've been running around on it a lot the last couple of days. I guess I wasn't used to that. If I get my body used to it, I think I'll be all right." The 34-year-old is batting .341/.449/.488 with six stolen bases and 11 runs scored in 14 games (10 starts) this season.
