Cole Hamels spun eight innings of one-run ball in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Nationals.

Jayson Werth got to Hamels with a solo shot in the second, but that was the only tally against the left-hander. Hamels struck out four while giving up six hits and walking one. The southpaw has allowed one earned run in back-to-back outings to drop his ERA from 4.58 to 4.17. He'll finish off his first half at home against the White Sox.

Carlos Gomez blasted his fifth home run of the season on Friday, powering the Brewers to a 5-3 victory over the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

Gomez finished the night 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI. His long ball, a towering shot to center off Charlie Morton in the fifth inning, proved to be the difference maker in the ballgame. He’s off to a tremendous start to the season, hitting .329/.385/.629 with five homers and 12 RBI in his first 17 contests.

Gio Gonzalez limited the Cardinals to just one run over seven innings Friday in a 3-1 win.

Nice to see after he was knocked around for six runs last time out. Gonzalez gave up just four hits (three of them singles) and one walk. The only run scored on an RBI single by Mark Ellis in the fourth inning. He struck out seven batters in the victory. Gonzalez now owns a 2.88 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio in 25 innings across four starts. He'll get the Angels next week.

Pirates acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Mets in exchange for RHP Zachary Thornton and a player to be named.

The 27-year-old slugger has fallen off after a breakthrough 2012 campaign where he smashed 32 homers and drove home 90 runs. The change of scenery, and the likelihood that he receives everyday at-bats, should be a tremendous boost to his fantasy value affords him the chance to get his career back on track.

Manny Machado (knee) will play five innings at third base in an extended spring training game Saturday.

Machado was cleared after doing some sliding on Friday with no issues. It will be the third baseman's first game action since last October's knee surgery. The Orioles have been careful not to make any hard and fast deadlines for Machado, but it's beginning to look like he should be ready to go pretty early on in May.

Athletics signed LHP Sean Doolittle to a four-year contract extension.

The deal was announced as a five-year contract, but it includes this season. The A's will also have club options for 2019 and 2020. The financials of the contract are not yet known. Doolittle would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter, so the new deal will buy out his arbitration years and possibly his first two years of free agency. Doolittle holds a 3.10 ERA with 129 strikeouts over 125 innings over his first 122 relief appearances for the A's.

Rangers placed RHP Tanner Scheppers on the 15-day disabled list with muscle inflammation in his right elbow.

The club is saying Scheppers' ligament is fine, as it's a muscular injury. That's obviously preferred, but it's not clear how long he might be sidelined. Nick Martinez is expected to be recalled to start on Tuesday in Scheppers' place.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Friday that Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will "probably" begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday at Triple-A Tacoma.

Iwakuma had a successful simulated game Friday and will throw one more bullpen session Sunday before beginning a rehab assignment. It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts the right-hander will need, but his early May timetable still appears to be a realistic goal.

Brandon Phillips was removed from Friday's game against the Cubs due to back spasms.

Phillips was injured on a swing in the first inning and eventually was taken out in the third. The Reds are saying his removal was precautionary. Consider Phillips day-to-day for the time being, but he figures to miss at least a game or two.

Red Sox designated INF Ryan Roberts for assignment.

That didn't take long. Roberts was brought in on a one-year deal a week and a half ago but has been given the boot after picked up just two singles in 19 at-bats. Jonathan Herrera and Brock Holt will handle third base until Will Middlebrooks (calf) returns.
Apr 18 - 3:43 PM

Aroldis Chapman (head) has been cleared to throw live batting practice.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Wednesday that Chapman could be cleared before the end of the team's road trip, and it turns out he's been cleared on the first day of their 10-day trip. It seems like the reliever might be a tad ahead of schedule, but the Reds haven't said as much, only offering that Chapman is coming along well. A mid-May return has been expected.
Apr 18 - 12:16 PM

Cole Hamels (biceps) tossed seven innings of one-run ball Thursday for High-A Clearwater in what is expected to be his final rehab start.

Hamels gave up just three hits, walked one and struck out two. The left-hander has posted a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio over his 17 rehab innings to this point, clearing the way for him to rejoin the Phillies' rotation early next week. Assuming the club keeps Hamels on schedule, he'll make his season debut on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.
