Latest Headlines

Padres purchased the contract of Sean O'Sullivan from Triple-A Tucson.

O'Sullivan will make his first start of the 2013 season against the Giants on Friday, replacing Robbie Erlin in the rotation. The 25-year-old righty hasn't appeared in the big leagues since he made 10 awful starts for the Royals in 2011. Despite pitching in a favorable environment, fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere.

Tigers placed LHP Kyle Lobstein on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with left shoulder inflammation.

He's actually been dealing with the shoulder issue for a couple starts and it apparently hasn't been getting better. Lobstein will undergo an MRI to make sure he's not dealing with anything more than inflammation. Buck Farmer will take his spot in the Tigers' rotation.

Juan Lagares (pectoral, elbow) has been scratched from the Mets' lineup Sunday.

He's still dealing with elbow and pectoral soreness. It's not clear at this point whether the Mets might consider putting Lagares on the disabled list, but for now he should be considered day-to-day. Darrell Ceciliani took his spot in center field Sunday.
May 24 - 11:14 AM

Jose Bautista is not in Sunday's lineup after being given a cortisone shot for his ailing right shoulder.

Bautista has been dealing with the shoulder malady for over a month now and just can't get over the hump. It appears at this point that he'll continue to play through it, although he'll have to keep doing it in the designated hitter spot.
May 24 - 11:11 AM

Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday due to a tight hamstring.

Duda tweaked the hamstring on a play at second base Saturday. It doesn't sound like more than a day-to-day concern, but the Mets will be careful. Michael Cuddyer is at first base Sunday, with John Mayberry covering left field.
May 24 - 10:44 AM

Pablo Sandoval (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Sandoval has been limited to just one pinch-hitting appearance since being hit on the left knee by a pitch Tuesday. He'll be available off the bench again Sunday but obviously isn't feeling well enough to return to the lineup just yet. Brock Holt is handling third base again Sunday.
May 24 - 10:12 AM

Devin Mesoraco is expected to decide whether to undergo season-ending surgery on his left hip when the Reds return home from their road trip Monday.

Mesoraco experienced continued pain while attempting to squat on Friday and hasn't even been available to serve as a designated hitter the last two days. Being able to catch again this season looks like a long shot, so he could decide soon to go ahead and have the procedure. "I'm sure we'll have some type of meeting," he said. "I don't know what we're going to do. I don't expect to be catching in the near future. We'll talk when we get back to Cincinnati."

Indians activated C Yan Gomes from the 15-day disabled list.

Gomes wound up missing six weeks out of a projected 6-8 week timetable after he went down with a right MCL sprain. The Indians will not let him catch back-to-back games initially, so Roberto Perez will still see a decent amount of time behind the plate over the next couple weeks.
May 24 - 8:29 AM

John Axford collected his sixth save of the year Saturday as the Rockies beat the Giants 5-3 in the second half of a doubleheader at Coors Field.

Axford gave up a leadoff single to Gregor Blanco, but that's all the damage the Giants could muster down two in the ninth. Axford has been pretty steady all season and is now running away with the Rockies' ninth-inning gig. He's obviously a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues, even as the closer on a bad Colorado team.
May 24 - 1:59 AM

Anthony Rizzo finished 2-for-5 with a home run and six RBI in the Cubs' 9-6 defeat of the Diamondbacks on Saturday night in Arizona.

Rizzo slugged a go-ahead three-run bases-clearing double in the top of the fifth inning off Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa and then gave the Cubs the lead for good with a three-run homer off Enrique Burgos in the top of the ninth. The six RBI tied his career-high. Rizzo is batting .322/.444/.586 with nine home runs, 29 RBI, and 27 runs scored in 42 games this season. He also has nine stolen bases as a cherry on top for fantasy owners.
May 24 - 1:33 AM

Mike Bolsinger delivered eight shutout innings Saturday in the Dodgers' 2-0 win over the Padres.

Bolsinger was absolutely terrific, yielding only one hit while striking out eight against a plenty-good Padres lineup. He did not walk a batter. The 27-year-old has posted tremendous numbers this season between Triple-A Oklahoma City and Los Angeles, and he's worth a shot in mixed fantasy leagues while the fire is lit. Some regression is probably coming. A road date with the Cardinals is next.
May 24 - 12:32 AM

Despite pitching seven innings of shutout baseball against the Marlins on Saturday, Mike Wright came away with a no-decision, as the Orioles lost 1-0 in 13 innings.

Making his second major league start in a row, Wright followed up a fantastic outing against the Angels with another strong showing versus the Marlins. He has not allowed a run in either of his starts thus far. Despite the brilliant pitching, Wright wouldn't factor into the decision, as the game would remain 0-0 until the 13th inning, when Martin Prado hit a walk-off RBI single. Wright struck out four, walked three and now has a 10/3 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings. Plus, the lovely 0.00 ERA. The seventh-ranked prospect in the Orioles' system by MLB.com, Wright had posted a 2.64 ERA and 3-0 record in six starts for Triple-A Norfolk prior to his promotion. He's making it very difficult for the Orioles to take him out of the rotation.
