Adrian Gonzalez had three hits, including his fifth homer, and the Dodgers beat the Cardinals 5-3 on Saturday.

Gonzalez actually fell just a triple short of the cycle, driving in a run with each of his three hits. The first baseman was actually on base five times in total, as he was walked twice on the night as well. The rest of the Dodgers' sluggers may be slumping, but Gonzalez looks just fine these days. He's hitting .316/.375/.471 after Saturday's game.

Carson Smith underwent Tommy John reconstructive surgery on his right elbow Tuesday.

The procedure was deemed a success, per Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald. Smith will obviously miss the remainder of the 2016 season, and he could remain sidelined through the first half of 2017. The young right-hander was acquired from the Mariners this past winter as part of the Wade Miley trade. He'll have to sit on his shiny 2.00 career major league ERA for the next 13-15 months.

Carlos Beltran launched a solo homer, drove in two runs and scored a pair of runs in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

R.A. Dickey left a knuckleball up in the fourth inning, and Beltran clubbed it into the right field seats. It was the veteran's 10th dinger of the season and fifth over his last 15 games. Beltran has collected 10 hits and 10 RBI over his last five contests.

Julio Teheran struck out a career-best 12 batters over seven innings Tuesday, allowing one run, but still didn't factor in the decision against the Brewers.

Teheran gave up just three hits, one being a Ryan Braun solo homer, without walking a batter, but the Braves weren't able to muster much offense against Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson either. It's been that kind of year for Teheran, who is just 1-4 but owns a stellar 2.57 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 59/17 K/BB ratio over 63 innings of work. The 25-year-old will next take on the Marlins on Sunday.

Justin Verlander punched out 10 batters across eight shutout innings in Tuesday's victory over the Phillies.

The Phils were simply overmatched in this one. Verlander yielded only three hits -- two singles -- on the night while walking a pair. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus elected to pull him rather than let him go for the shutout, as Verlander was sitting at 108 pitches. Verlander has two 10-strikeout games in a row and has allowed just four runs over his last four starts. He'll try to keep it going the next time out against the Angels.

Nick Ahmed left Tuesday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his face.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero caught Ahmed in the chin, an inning after striking Jean Segura in the side of the batting helmet. The pitches didn't look intentional -- just incredibly wild -- but Caminero was ejected anyway and both benches were warned. Ahmed will presumably be tested for both facial fractures and a concussion. He was able to walk off the field under his own power.

Francisco Rodriguez allowed a run but hung on to record career save No. 400 in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

K-Rod got into hot water right off the bat by allowing a double to Freddy Galvis and single to Maikel Franco, but he retired the next three batters, giving up just the one run on a sac fly. The reliever becomes the sixth ever to reach the 400-save plateau, and he's the active leader in the category.

Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with tightness in his right quad.

Tulowitzki was 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base before exiting. He may have injured the quad on that swipe of second base in the top of the seventh. Ryan Goins moved to shortstop and catcher Russell Martin took over at second to close out the 6-0 loss. Tulo will be reevaluated by the Blue Jays training staff on Wednesday.

Alex Rodriguez finished 2-for-4 in his first rehab game Tuesday with Double-A Trenton.

It could also be his final rehab game, with rumors swirling that the Yankees might activate him Wednesday. A-Rod hit an RBI single up the middle in the third inning and singled to load the bases in the seventh. Trenton pulled him in the ninth with the game tied 2-2. Rodriguez has been on the disabled list since May 4 because of a strained right hamstring.

Jean Segura left Tuesday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his helmet.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero, one of the hardest throwers in the majors, struck Segura with a 96 mph fastball in the top of the seventh inning. Segura was eventually able to walk off the field on his own, but this is an obvious concussion-watch situation. There should be an update from the Diamondbacks after the game.

Jameson Taillon will be skipped on his next turn through the Triple-A Indianapolis rotation.

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told MLB.com's Adam Berry that he wants to conserve Taillon's innings for later in the season, when the 24-year-old right-hander will likely be pitching at the major league level. Taillon is appearing this year in his first meaningful games since 2013. He boasts a 1.82 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 51/5 K/BB ratio through 49 1/3 innings (eight starts) at Triple-A.
May 24 - 9:31 PM

Hanley Ramirez was diagnosed with a right toe contusion after leaving Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

Ramirez got struck on the right foot by a Jorge De La Rosa pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning and was replaced at first base in the top of the fifth by Travis Shaw. X-rays turned up negative for any fractures and Hanley can be considered day-to-day. He finished 0-for-2 with the HBP.
