Jose Fernandez held the Pirates to three singles over seven scoreless innings in a 3-1 victory on Tuesday.

The dynamic right-hander was in control from the jump. He struck out six batters and didn't walk anyone on the night and surely could have gone deeper in the game after throwing just 88 pitches through seven frames. However, the Marlins took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the inning, so manager Don Mattingly elected to turn it over to the bullpen and save some of Fernandez's bullets. Fernandez looks to have put the control issues he had been having behind him, as he's walked just two over his last three starts. He'll carry a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 96 strikeouts over 67 2/3 frames into this weekend's matchup against the Mets.

Miguel Sano has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.

And a 15-day disabled list move is probably coming Wednesday. Sano suffered the injury Tuesday night against the A's while hustling down the first base line to beat out a potential double play. Sano got credited with an RBI on that play, with Eduardo Nunez scoring from third. Oswaldo Arcia replaced Sano at first base and then in right field.

Brad Boxberger has been diagnosed with a left side muscle strain.

Boxberger suffered the injury Tuesday in his season debut, while allowing a single and a two-run homer. He underwent core muscle surgery this spring and spent the first eight weeks of the season on the disabled list. A trip back to the DL seems probable, and Alex Colome suddenly has a very strong grip on Tampa Bay's closer gig.

Tyler Saladino did a bit of everything Tuesday, finishing 2-for-2 with a two-run home run, two stolen bases and two walks in a 6-4 win over the Mets.

The stolen bases were his first two of the season, a surprising fact given that his speed, not his power, is what stood out in the minors. The homer, off Mets reliever Hansel Robles in the eighth inning, was his third of the year. Saladino's playing time continues to be erratic behind Jimmy Rollins, but the 26-year-old could be garnering more at-bats while hitting .290/.320/.449.

James Paxton will be called up Wednesday.

That's the only detail available at this point. Felix Hernandez is currently scheduled to start Wednesday night against the Padres, so this could involve a health situation with him (purely speculation). Paxton, 27, is sporting a 3.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 50/14 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level.

Mookie Betts had a night to remember Tuesday, slugging three home runs and driving in five runs in a victory over the Orioles.

Betts deposited Kevin Gausman's second pitch of the game into the left-field seats and he got Gausman again with a three-run shot just over the left-field wall in the second inning. After a lineout in the fourth, Betts victimized Dylan Bundy with an opposite-field shot in the seventh. Betts had a shot at a four-homer night but grounded out to second base in the ninth. The 23-year-old has actually been a tad disappointing this season from an average (.283) and on-base percentage (.325) perspective, but he's provided a ton of category juice with 12 homers, 40 RBI, 49 runs scored and eight stolen bases.

Jake Peavy turned in a surprising gem Tuesday, holding the Braves to one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory.

Peavy entered the game with a 7.26 ERA over his first 10 starts of the season, so this was unexpected even in a juicy matchup. The veteran right-hander permitted a leadoff single to Tyler Flowers in the fifth inning and that was it, as he faced the minimum through seven frames. He had thrown only 77 pitches, but manager Bruce Bochy had no choice but to pinch-hit for Peavy as the offense rallied in the eighth. Peavy will have a much tougher matchup on Sunday in St. Louis.

Jurickson Profar belted his first major league home run since September of 2013 in Tuesday's victory over the Indians.

The longball was a solo shot off of Corey Kluber in the fifth inning. Profar also singled and scored a run. The infielder is sporting a .348/.348/.565 batting line five games since taking over at second base for the suspended Rougned Odor. The Rangers are reportedly considering keeping Profar on the major league roster after Odor returns, although it remains to be seen how they'd plan to get him playing time.

Dodgers recalled LHP Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Urias is being throwing back into the Los Angeles rotation with Alex Wood (triceps) suddenly landing on the disabled list Tuesday. The young southpaw gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in 2 2/3 innings last Friday in his major league debut against the Mets, but he has terrific stuff and it looks like his second MLB start will come this weekend against the punchless Braves. There's no official schedule yet.

Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 15-day disabled list with left posterior elbow soreness.

Wood began experiencing the discomfort after his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. He'll be examined and likely run through some tests before the Dodgers can come up with a proper recovery timetable. Julio Urias is going to take the vacant rotation spot.

Seth Smith cranked two home runs in an epic beatdown of his former team the Padres on Tuesday.

Smith took James Shields deep for a three-run homer in the third inning, then added a solo shot off Padres reliever Luis Perdomo in the fifth. He wrapped up his day going 2-for-4 with a walk plus four RBI and three runs scored. The 33-year-old outfielder shows no signs of aging. He is slashing .269/.392/.438 with six longballs, 26 runs scored, and 22 RBI.
