Juan Francisco homered in his third straight game Thursday, ripping a solo shot against the Cubs' Blake Parker in a loss.

Francisco struck out in his other three plate appearances. Though he's gone deep four times in 19 games since joining the Brew Crew, Francisco is batting just .196. Of course, that should be no surprise, as the big infielder has always had plus raw power but offered little else. He now has nine dingers on the year in his time with the Brewers and Braves.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored as the Royals slugged their way past the Rays 10-5 on Tuesday.

Cain hit a two-run homer off Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning and added a two-run single in the fourth. The multi-hit game was his 13th in the month of May, a month he is surely sad to see end. Cain batted .351 with six homers, 25 RBI and 18 runs scored in the month, giving him eight home runs, 33 RBI and 28 runs scored to go with a .295/.348/.456 line overall.

Brewers activated LHP Will Smith from the 15-day disabled list.

Smith will join the Milwaukee bullpen on Wednesday after missing the first two months of the season with a torn LCL in his right knee. He was in a battle for closer duties with Jeremy Jeffress leading into spring training and that makes him a worthy stash in deep fantasy leagues, though Jeffress has pitched very well. Smith allowed just a hit and no walks while striking out five during his four-inning minor league rehab assignment.

Matt Carpenter feasted on Brewers pitching again Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with a double, two triples, two RBI and four runs scored in the Cardinals' 10-3 drubbing.

All Carpenter has done the past two days is go 8-for-10 with three doubles, two triples, two RBI and seven runs scored. The blistering two games have vaulted him to fifth in the National League in runs scored (36) and eighth in the league in RBI (35). The 30-year-old is hitting .272/.385/.543 on the year.

Julio Urias could start Thursday at Wrigley Field.

That would be Kenta Maeda's turn, and Maeda is currently questionable with a swollen right hand. Urias hasn't pitched since his MLB debut last Friday night against the Mets, so he's available. But the Braves at home this weekend would obviously be a much safer matchup than the Cubs for real-life and fantasy purposes. Urias was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday night with Alex Wood (elbow) landing on the disabled list.

Daniel Murphy singled and ripped a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Another day, another big night for Murphy, who evidently hasn't been told that the 2015 postseason is over. The second baseman put the Nationals ahead with a solo blast off of Aaron Nola in the sixth inning and that proved to be the winning run. Murphy finishes the first two months of the season with an improbable .397/.428/.634 batting line.

Corey Seager went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Cubs.

Seager had a couple hits and a run scored before launching a three-run shot in the ninth to extend the Dodgers' lead. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 27 RBI. Seager has largely been as advertised in his rookie year, batting .278/.333/.474 while batting near the top of the Dodgers' lineup on a daily basis.

Jose Fernandez held the Pirates to three singles over seven scoreless innings in a 3-1 victory on Tuesday.

The dynamic right-hander was in control from the jump. He struck out six batters and didn't walk anyone on the night and surely could have gone deeper in the game after throwing just 88 pitches through seven frames. However, the Marlins took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the inning, so manager Don Mattingly elected to turn it over to the bullpen and save some of Fernandez's bullets. Fernandez looks to have put the control issues he had been having behind him, as he's walked just two over his last three starts. He'll carry a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 96 strikeouts over 67 2/3 frames into this weekend's matchup against the Mets.

Miguel Sano has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.

And a 15-day disabled list move is probably coming Wednesday. Sano suffered the injury Tuesday night against the A's while hustling down the first base line to beat out a potential double play. Sano got credited with an RBI on that play, with Eduardo Nunez scoring from third. Oswaldo Arcia replaced Sano at first base and then in right field.
May 31 - 11:15 PM

Brad Boxberger has been diagnosed with a left side muscle strain.

Boxberger suffered the injury Tuesday in his season debut, while allowing a single and a two-run homer. He underwent core muscle surgery this spring and spent the first eight weeks of the season on the disabled list. A trip back to the DL seems probable, and Alex Colome suddenly has a very strong grip on Tampa Bay's closer gig.
May 31 - 11:03 PM

Tyler Saladino did a bit of everything Tuesday, finishing 2-for-2 with a two-run home run, two stolen bases and two walks in a 6-4 win over the Mets.

The stolen bases were his first two of the season, a surprising fact given that his speed, not his power, is what stood out in the minors. The homer, off Mets reliever Hansel Robles in the eighth inning, was his third of the year. Saladino's playing time continues to be erratic behind Jimmy Rollins, but the 26-year-old could be garnering more at-bats while hitting .290/.320/.449.

James Paxton will be called up Wednesday.

That's the only detail available at this point. Felix Hernandez is currently scheduled to start Wednesday night against the Padres, so this could involve a health situation with him (purely speculation). Paxton, 27, is sporting a 3.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 50/14 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level.
