Jeff Samardzija was shaky early but recovered to go seven innings, limiting the Tigers to two runs in the White Sox' 5-2 victory Tuesday.

Samardzija gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out seven in the win. It hasn't come easy for the right-hander this year, but he's now 2-2 with a more respectable 4.38 ERA. An interleague date with the Reds on Sunday is on tap.

Wandy gave up just three hits on the night, with one of those being a Luis Valbuena solo homer. The southpaw also struck out eight while walking just one. It was easily the best of his three starts thus far and showed that he's still got a little bit left in the tank after the Rangers picked him up off the scrap heap. Rodriguez will square off with the Rays in Tampa on Sunday.

George Springer crashed into the wall making a catch on Tuesday and will be evaluated for a concussion.

The Astros aren't taking chances with their young star, who hit the wall with his head while making a spectacular grab Tuesday night against the Rangers. Houston manager A.J. Hinch said after the game that Springer was "pretty banged up." He'll undergo a battery of tests and will sit on Wednesday, with his status reevaluated once the Astros have a better gauge of the severity of the injury.

Stephen Strasburg will see a chiropractor on Wednesday for an alignment issue with his shoulder.

From the sound of it, this isn't an arm injury. According to manager Matt Williams, Strasburg is feeling discomfort under his shoulder. He labored through three innings against the Marlins on Tuesday and at one point was visited by a trainer. He'll visit the chiropractor to see if the issue can be worked out. It's unknown as of now if he'll make his next start.

Hosmer blasted a three-run homer in the first inning, his fourth homer of the year, before adding an RBI triple in the eighth. Hosmer's 19 RBI ranks him among the league leaders in the category, and he's hitting .320/.400/.540 overall.

Michael Pineda was dominant in a win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, tossing eight shutout innings.

On 101 pitches, Pineda scattered five hits and a walk while striking out six batters. Three of the hits were doubles, but all came with two outs and Pineda easily saw his way out of danger. The right-hander now has a 2.97 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP, and a stellar 38/3 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. Pineda's next opponent, the Orioles, will be loath to face him in a matinee in the Bronx.

Marlon Byrd helped the Reds defeat the Pirates on Tuesday, doubling and homering to knock in four runs.

Byrd pushed the Reds' lead to 4-1 in the third inning with a two-run home run off of Jeff Locke. He provided insurance in the ninth inning with a two-run double, making it a 7-1 ballgame. Byrd got off to an abysmal start, carrying a .441 OPS as recently as April 29, but has started to pick things up lately. He's now batting .193/.226/.364 with four home runs and 13 RBI.
May 5 - 10:15 PM

Mookie Betts provided all of the offense the Red Sox needed on Tuesday, hitting two solo home runs in a shutout win over the Rays.

The game was scoreless until Betts clubbed a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth off of Drew Smyly. He added a second solo shot in the eighth off of Ernesto Frieri. Betts has otherwise been treading water offensively, batting .234/.306/.411 with four home runs, 17 RBI, and five stolen bases.

Shelby Miller needed only 99 pitches to wrap up a shutout against the Phillies on Tuesday, improving his record to 4-1.

Sure, it was against the Phillies, but a 99-pitch shutout is always impressive. Miller held the Phillies to three hits and a walk while fanning eight. Miller, acquired from the Cardinals in the Jason Heyward trade last November, has done a terrific job in six starts for the Braves, sporting a 1.66 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and a 31/13 K/BB ratio in 38 innings. He'll toe the rubber in Cincinnati against the Reds next.
May 5 - 9:51 PM

The right-hander scattered six hits in total while issuing no walks and striking out nine. The 41-year-old has been in top form through six starts, sporting a terrific 2.90 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and a 36/1 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. Colon will go for win number six at Wrigley Field against the Cubs next.
