James McDonald (shoulder) might be moved to the bullpen when he is activated from the disabled list.

Gerrit Cole's promotion and Charlie Morton's return created a potential logjam in the Pittsburgh rotation and McDonald is probably going to have to be the odd man out. The 28-year-old righty owns a 5.76 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 29 2/3 innings this season. He is on the 15-day DL currently because of inflammation in his shoulder.

Khris Davis' 14th-inning home run gave the Brewers a 3-2 win over the Pirates on Sunday.

Davis had three hits on the day, but none were bigger than his solo shot off Jeanmar Gomez. The home run was Davis' first of the season after smacking 11 in 136 at-bats last season, but his power is undoubted.

David Wright went 4-for-6 with an RBI and a run scored in the Mets' 4-3, 14-inning win over the Braves on Sunday.

All four hits were singles, as the Mets didn't register an extra-base hit in the marathon win. He's got an 11-game hitting streak and is 12-for-24 (.500) in recent days. The four-hit day raised his season average to .316.

Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the Twins' 8-3 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Plouffe accounted for eight total bases on the day, doubling twice, walking and also legging out his first triple of the year. Plouffe also scored twice in the game. The third baseman has cooled down slightly since his red hot start to the season, but he's still hitting .313/.420/.493 for the year.

Stephen Strasburg yielded just two runs in six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

It was a nice rebound start for the Washington ace, who was hammered for six runs over four innings last week against a lowly Marlins team. Strasburg struck out nine Cardinals hitters on Sunday while issuing just one walk. He was left with a no-decision because the Nationals offense didn't grab the lead until the bottom of the ninth inning, when Denard Span hit a walkoff RBI sac fly. Strasburg will try to stay hot in his next outing at home against the Padres.

Rick Porcello tossed seven innings of one-run ball in the Tigers' 2-1 win over the Angels on Sunday.

It was a promising bounceback effort from Porcello, who was tagged for five runs on 10 hits last Friday against a weak Padres team. He held a dangerous Anaheim offense to five hits on Sunday afternoon in Detroit while striking out four and issuing just one walk. Porcello will carry a 2-1 record, 3.15 ERA, and 1.05 WHIP into his next scheduled start against the Twins at Target Field.

Steve Cishek worked out of a ninth inning jam to earn his third save of the season, securing the Marlins' 3-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday.

Cishek started the inning by allowing a leadoff double to Corey Hart, and a groundout left a runner at third with one out. After a walk to Justin Smoak, the right-hander buckled down, striking out Nick Franklin and pinch-hitter Michael Saunders to end the game. Cishek is 3-for-3 in save opportunities and still hasn't allowed a run over six innings to start the year.

Twins claimed OF Sam Fuld off waivers from the Athletics.

It's a good fit, as the Twins could really use some outfield help. With Aaron Hicks sporting an ugly .179/.299/.214 batting line, Fuld could wind up with a good amount of playing time in center field. He's only a career .233/.312/.334 hitter over parts of seven big league seasons but offers a good outfield glove.

Clayton Kershaw (back) said following a 50-pitch simulated game Sunday that he assumes a rehab start is his next step.

Kershaw went three innings Sunday and was throwing at full intensity, with Dodgers manager Don Mattingly saying the hurler was hitting 90 mph. The club has yet to officially announce when the left-hander will begin a rehab assignment, but it certainly sounds like later this week is a reasonable expectation. He'll need at least a couple outings, with a mid-May return to the Dodgers' rotation being the goal.

The Braves tentatively plan to have Mike Minor (shoulder) rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Reds.

He'd be going on two extra days' rest with Thursday's off day. Minor allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and no walks with four strikeouts in his final rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday. He got his pitch count up to 80 in the outing, so Minor should be able to get up to around 100 against the Reds.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said in an interview Sunday that Matt Harrison's (back) next start is expected to come at the major league level.

It's a reverse of what the team said last week, but Harrison convinced the Rangers that he was ready with eight shutout innings in a rehab start with Double-A Frisco Saturday. Harrison can slide into the rotation spot that was vacated by Tanner Scheppers (elbow). The left-hander will be making his first start in the majors since last April.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said in an interview Sunday that Adrian Beltre (quad) is on track to return for next weekend's series in Seattle.

The veteran third baseman will wind up spending only the minimum amount of time on the disabled list. Kevin Kouzmanoff has done so well while filling in for Beltre that he might stick around in a bench role.
