Jon Lester surrendered three runs on six hits in his 5 1/3 innings of work against the Padres on Sunday.

Lester's career as a Chicago Cub is off to a less than stellar start. His outing against the Padres was at least better by degrees than the six-run debacle he put up against the Reds in his last start. Versus the Padres, Lester gave up a two-run homer to Will Middlebrooks in the the third inning and after working into trouble in the sixth, he was pulled with two on and one out. Will Venable subsequently finished off Lester's line with an RBI hit. Lester struck out four and walked two in the contest while lowering his ERA to 6.89. That might look ghastly, but Lester owners should take solace in the fact that for the left-hander's career, April and May have been his worst months in terms of ERA. Historically, he gets better as the weather warms. Lester will face the Reds in his next start.

Adam Jones finished 4-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in the Orioles' 8-3 rout of the Red Sox on Sunday.

The scorching start continues for Jones, who is batting .457/.490/.848 with five home runs and 16 RBI through 46 at-bats. He opened the game's scoring Sunday with a two-run shot off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello and then later added two singles and a three-run double. The 29-year-old center fielder is quickly justifying his first-round ADP.

Mets recalled C Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Mets manager Terry Collins has already confirmed that the 24-year-old prospect will serve as the club's primary catcher for as long as Travis d'Arnaud (hand) remains sidelined. Plawecki has a solid offensive skill set and should be able to carve out mixed league value in deeper two-catcher formats over the next few weeks.

Steven Souza had a big day at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and an RBI double, but the Rays fell to the Yankees 5-3 on Sunday.

Souza gave the Rays a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run home run off of Michael Pineda. He helped bring the Rays back within two runs with a fifth-inning double off of Pineda, but it ultimately wasn't enough to avoid a series sweep. Souza is off to a good start, batting .289 with three home runs, 10 RBI, and four stolen bases.

Gerrit Cole moved to 2-0 on Sunday after limiting the Brewers to two earned runs over six frames in a 5-2 victory for the host Pirates.

Cole had some trouble in the second inning but was otherwise pretty sharp, yielding only five hits and one walk while striking out six. He has a cool 3.18 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 20/5 K/BB ratio in 17 innings (three starts) this season for the Bucs, who are now back to .500 (6-6) after sweeping their weekend set against the Brewers. The 24-year-old right-hander will try to keep it all working next time out in Arizona.

Shane Greene finally gave up a run but moved to 3-0, anyway, tossing seven frames of one-run ball in a 9-1 victory over the White Sox.

The one tally charged against him easily could have been unearned, as J.D. Martinez misplayed a ball in the sixth inning that was scored a triple. Greene went 21 2/3 frames before giving up a run this season. He walked four and struck out just three, but the righty surrendered only five hits, with the questionable triple being the only one that went for extra bases. Greene will take a microscopic 0.39 ERA into a start against the Indians next weekend.

Stephen Strasburg had his first good start of the season on Sunday, giving just one run in 7 1/3 innings in a win over the Phillies.

Strasburg had retired the first 14 Phillies he faced before Carlos Ruiz singled to left field with two outs in the fifth inning. He had shut the Phillies out over his first seven innings as well, but relented a run in the eighth on a Freddy Galvis RBI single to center. Overall, Strasburg allowed five hits, walked two, and struck out seven. His first two starts were subpar, so it was nice to see him get back on track, even if it was against the lowly Phillies. Strasburg will look to keep it going next weekend in Miami against the Marlins.
Apr 19 - 4:21 PM

Yoenis Cespedes ripped a grand slam and a two-run shot in Sunday's blowout victory over the White Sox.

Cespedes' slam in the first inning off of Jose Quintana got the scoring going for the Tigers and he took Quintana deep again in the third inning to pad their lead. The slugger entered the weekend without a longball but finishes it with three to go along with 10 RBI and a nice .300/.314/.600 batting line.
Apr 19 - 4:15 PM

Ruben Tejada went 1-for-4 with a three-run double as the Mets escaped with a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Tejada struck the big blow in the Mets' seven-run fourth inning, clearing the bases with a double to chase Tom Koehler from the game. It was only Tejada's third start of the season. He'll still mostly be relegated to the bench despite the recent injury to third baseman David Wright.
Apr 19 - 4:04 PM

Billy Hamilton (groin) is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

Hamilton strained his groin during Saturday's game and is listed as day-to-day. Brennan Boesch is taking his spot in center field. Devin Mesoraco (hip), as expected, is also still out, with Tucker Barnhart catching Mike Leake. The Reds are also going with Skip Schumaker in left field over Marlon Byrd.
Apr 19 - 4:00 PM

Omar Infante left Sunday's game versus the Athletics with an apparent leg injury.

Infante was spotted wincing in the fifth inning as he pulled into second base with a double. The Royals could be without both of their middle infielders for a bit with Alcides Escobar (knee) also sidelined. Expect an update on Infante shortly.
