Domonic Brown is displaying concussion-like symptoms.

Brown hit his head hard on Tuesday night at Busch Stadium while attempting to make a diving catch on what would wind up as a Carlos Beltran triple. It's an awful blow for the Phillies, with even worse timing. Brown, 25, will be monitored closely over the next few nights and won't be cleared return to live action until at least Friday.

Nick Ahmed left Tuesday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his face.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero caught Ahmed in the chin, an inning after striking Jean Segura in the side of the batting helmet. The pitches didn't look intentional -- just incredibly wild -- but Caminero was ejected anyway and both benches were warned. Ahmed will presumably be tested for both facial fractures and a concussion. He was able to walk off the field under his own power.

Francisco Rodriguez allowed a run but hung on to record career save No. 400 in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

K-Rod got into hot water right off the bat by allowing a double to Freddy Galvis and single to Maikel Franco, but he retired the next three batters, giving up just the one run on a sac fly. The reliever becomes the sixth ever to reach the 400-save plateau, and he's the active leader in the category.

Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with tightness in his right quad.

Tulowitzki was 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base before exiting. He may have injured the quad on that swipe in the top of the seventh. Ryan Goins moved to shortstop and catcher Russell Martin took over at second base to close out the 6-0 loss. Tulo will be reevaluated by the Blue Jays training staff on Wednesday.

Alex Rodriguez finished 2-for-4 in his first rehab game Tuesday with Double-A Trenton.

It could also be his final rehab game, with rumors swirling that the Yankees might activate him Wednesday. A-Rod hit an RBI single up the middle in the third inning and singled to load the bases in the seventh. Trenton pulled him in the ninth with the game tied 2-2. Rodriguez has been on the disabled list since May 4 because of a strained right hamstring.

Jean Segura left Tuesday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his helmet.

Pirates reliever Arquimedes Caminero, one of the hardest throwers in the majors, struck Segura with a 96 mph fastball in the top of the seventh inning. Segura was eventually able to walk off the field on his own, but this is an obvious concussion-watch situation. There should be an update from the Diamondbacks after the game.

Jameson Taillon will be skipped on his next turn through the Triple-A Indianapolis rotation.

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told MLB.com's Adam Berry that he wants to conserve Taillon's innings for later in the season, when the 24-year-old right-hander will likely be pitching at the major league level. Taillon is appearing this year in his first meaningful games since 2013. He boasts a 1.82 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 51/5 K/BB ratio through 49 1/3 innings (eight starts) at Triple-A.

Hanley Ramirez was diagnosed with a right toe contusion after leaving Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

Ramirez got struck on the right foot by a Jorge De La Rosa pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning and was replaced at first base in the top of the fifth by Travis Shaw. X-rays turned up negative for any fractures and Hanley can be considered day-to-day. He finished 0-for-2 with the HBP.

Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail told reporters that Yu Darvish (elbow) will likely be limited to 85-90 pitches in his 2016 debut Saturday versus the Pirates.

"That would be a good pitch count," Brocail said. "It all depends on how he looks during the game and how many pitches he has. We're not going to have him go out there and throw 150 pitches. Hopefully he gets out there and uses his fastball to get early outs and uses his pitches wisely and keeps us in the game." Darvish threw 87 pitches over six scoreless innings in his final rehab start Sunday with Double-A Frisco. He had a 0.90 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, and 21/6 K/BB ratio in 20 total rehab innings. The ace right-hander is returning from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

According to Ben Badler of Baseball America, the Dodgers had "a big crew" at a showcase Tuesday afternoon in the Dominican Republic that featured Cuban outfielder Lazaro Armenteros and Cuban second baseman Jose Miguel Fernandez.

Under their new ownership group the Dodgers have become the most aggressive spenders on international talent in Major League Baseball, and Armenteros and Fernandez are among the most popular names on this year's market. Armenteros, commonly referred to as "Lazarito," is a 17-year-old outfielder with a wide variety of scouting reports -- some very promising, some not so promising. At one point there was talk of him commanding a record sum, but that has cooled. Hernandez is a 27-year-old with a MLB-ready profile, but he was granted free agency in late April and remains unsigned. There's always an element of mystery with these Cuban signings.

Yasmani Grandal (ankle) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Reds.

Grandal missed a few games after fouling a ball off his right ankle on Saturday. He's starting at catcher and batting eighth Tuesday night against Reds righty Daniel Wright. It will be Winkler's major league debut.

Andrelton Simmons (thumb) has begun baseball activities, per MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez.

That includes swinging a bat, playing catch, and fielding grounders. Simmons is just two weeks into his recovery from a UCL tear in his left thumb and will probably remain on the disabled list through much of June. The original timetable issued May 12 called for an absence of 6-8 weeks.
