Astros recalled INF Jacob Elmore from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He'll take the roster spot of Jose Altuve, who was placed on the bereavement list following the death of his grandmother. Elmore, 25, was batting .300/.381/.457 with two home runs, 15 RBI, eight stolen bases, and an .838 OPS in 36 games at Triple-A this season. Ronny Cedeno and Marwin Gonzalez figure to see most of the playing time in the middle infield until Altuve is ready to rejoin the team.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Monday that Khris Davis (groin) will likely be placed on the disabled list.

Davis left Sunday's game with a right groin strain. He was scheduled to be reevaluated Monday, but Melvin said that he "can't imagine" he won't end up on the disabled list based on how he was moving around. It's not exactly unexpected given how these injuries usually go. Mark Canha and Chad Pinder figure to see an uptick in playing time while Davis is sidelined, but the A's and fantasy owners are going to miss his big bat.

Juan Soto will start in left field and bat sixth Monday against the Padres.

Soto struck out in his first major league at-bat Sunday, but this will his first MLB start. The Nationals are dealing with multiple injuries in their outfield, so they made the bold move of promoting the 19-year-old despite appearing in just eight games above High-A. They think he's equal to the task. It should be interesting, at the very least, but Soto is worth a pickup in most fantasy leagues on upside alone.

Major League Baseball has extended the administrative leave for Roberto Osuna for another week through May 28.

It's the second extension for administrative leave since Osuna's arrest for assault on May 8. He still has a court date scheduled for June 18, so it's unclear when he might pitch for the Blue Jays again. He could face a possible suspension from MLB even if he isn't ultimately convicted. Tyler Clippard has the lone save for Toronto since Osuna's arrest.

Lance McCullers was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one hit and a pair of walks over seven shutout innings.

McCullers racked up eight strikeouts on the night. The right-hander retired the first 15 hitters that he faced until Jason Kipnis lined a single into right field to lead off the sixth inning. With the victory, McCullers improves to 6-2 on the season to go along with a 3.20 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 66/23 K/BB ratio across 59 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort on Saturday in a rematch against these same Indians in Cleveland.

Mitch Haniger hit a two-run, game-tying homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Mariners bested the Tigers 3-2 in 11 innings Sunday.

Tigers starter Francisco Liriano blanked the M's for eight innings before handing it off to closer Shane Greene, who allowed a one-out single before Haniger stepped to the dish. Haniger proceeded to crush a hanging breaking ball from Greene, giving him 11 dongs and 36 RBI on the year. The 27-year-old is hitting .298/.379/.571 through 46 games this year.

Brandon Belt swatted a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning to propel the Giants to a 9-5 win over the Rockies on Sunday.

In a 5-5 game in the seventh inning, Belt stepped to the dish with two on and lefty Jake McGee on the bump for the Rox. Belt delivered, as he has often this year, knocking a three-run jack over the right field wall to give the Giants the late lead. The first baseman has surprisingly been one of the best hitters in the National League this year, batting .313/.413/.594 with 11 homers, 29 RBI and 28 runs scored. He's been especially dangerous in the past week, recording six multi-hit games since last Sunday. Few are locked in like he is right now.

Shohei Ohtani struck out nine while allowing two runs over 7 2/3 innings in the Angels' 5-2 win over the Rays Sunday.

Ohtani gave up six hits, including a solo homer, and walked one in the contest. It was the third time in seven starts this year that he's struck out nine or more, and he's got five quality starts in those seven outings. The 23-year-old epitome of a dual threat is 4-1 with a 3.35 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 52/14 K/BB ratio on the bump and is hitting .321/.367/.619 in 84 at-bats. A big test looms for Ohtani next weekend when the Halos visit the Yankees.
May 20 - 8:30 PM

Blake Parker was called up to close out Sunday's win over the Rays, striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save.

Nobody really has any idea what to make of the back end of the Angels' bullpen with Keynan Middleton now sidelined, so it's worth noting that Parker got the call to protect a three-run lead. He did it with little drama, allowing a hit but striking out two, including Johnny Field to end it, for his second save of the year. Parker is perhaps the most talented option that exists for manager Mike Scioscia, one who could provide some strikeouts and good ratios for fantasy owners along with saves. If he's available in your league, it's worth speculating that Sunday was a harbinger for things to come.
May 20 - 8:12 PM

Jack Flaherty struck out 13 and allowed a lone run over 7 2/3 innings Sunday, leading the Cardinals to a 5-1 win over the Phillies.

Flaherty was nothing short of terrific in this one, giving up just two hits -- one being a Rhys Hoskins solo homer for the only Phillies run of the game -- and walking one to go with the 13 punchouts. The 13 strikeouts in a single game tied a Cardinals rookie record, and he's now struck out 27 through 23 1/3 innings of work this year. The young righty likely has a spot in the Cards' rotation locked down for the near future given their pitching woes, and he'll carry a 2.31 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into Saturday's contest against the Pirates.
May 20 - 7:47 PM

Logan Morrison hit a bases-loaded, go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning of Sunday's 3-1 win over the Brewers.

With two on and one out, the Brewers opted to intentionally walk Eduardo Escobar to bring up Morrison to face lefty reliever Boone Logan with the bases loaded. LoMo won the battle, lining a single off the right field wall to plate two. Morrison now has 17 RBI to go with a disappointing .211/.318/.376 line in 39 games this year.
May 20 - 7:15 PM

Jesus Aguilar homered for the third consecutive game Sunday, but couldn't help the Brewers overcome the Twins.

Aguilar took Twins starter Jake Odorizzi deep in the sixth inning to tie the game at 1-1 -- one of the only hits the Brewers could muster against Odorizzi on the afternoon -- and finished 2-for-4 in the game. The homer was his fourth in his last three games, giving him seven on the year. Few are hotter than the 27-year-old, who's hitting a robust .333/.395/.608 through Sunday's contest.
