Cameron Maybin has been pulled off his rehab assignment again and will have his left knee evaluated by team doctors.

Maybin could also get a second opinion after that. The outfielder first began his rehab assignment in late July, but he's now twice been pulled from it due to persistent pain in his left knee. We'll see what the doctors say first, but it's looking unlikely that Maybin will make much of an impact before the end of the season.

Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) could rejoin the Rockies' rotation as soon as April 29.

The Rockies indicated Monday that Chacin would likely need two more rehab starts, but now they're thinking just one could be enough. He'll start for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday before being re-evaluated. "It's hard to say if he's going to take one more start or two more starts," manager Walt Weiss said. "We'll see how it goes. I think Jhoulys is in a good spot, but we want to be smart about this, too. This is basically his spring training."

Dee Gordon was cleared of a possible concussion after Tuesday's game.

Gordon left the contest after hitting his head on the Phillies' Jayson Nix's knee when he slid into third base on steal in the seventh inning. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that the second baseman looked a little "dazed" but passed the necessary tests. Still, it wouldn't be a surprise if the club gave him a day.

Collin McHugh dazzled in his return to the majors, striking out 12 over 6 2/3 shutout frames in Tuesday's 5-2 victory against the Mariners.

Where did this come from? McHugh, a December waiver claim from Colorado who couldn't crack Houston's Quad-A pitching corps until this very night due to Scott Feldman's injury, made Seattle look downright silly, declining to issue a free pass and scattering just three hits. The 26-year-old McHugh entered this game with a 8.94 ERA over nine starts and six relief appearances in the majors. And you wonder why we love baseball? McHugh's encore will come Sunday in Houston against the A's. We don't believe in Santa Claus, so buy in at your own risk.

Chase Headley's 12th inning home run helped lead the Padres to a 2-1 win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

The third baseman finished the game 2-for-4 with a walk. Facing Alfredo Figaro in extra innings, Headley deposited a pitch well over the right-center field wall to give his club the lead and, eventually, the win. Despite the heroics, it was just Headley's second home run of the year, and he has only seven RBI through 18 games.

Justin Verlander earned his third win of the season on Tuesday, holding the White Sox to two runs over seven innings as the Tigers won by an 8-6 margin.

Verlander allowed eight hits, walked two, and struck out seven in the effort. It wasn't the most dominant outing we've ever seen from Verlander, but he has a paltry 2.18 ERA. The strikeouts have started to come along lately as well, with 22 over his last 19 innings. Verlander will look to get his fourth win of the season against the Twins next.

Jason Hammel held the Diamondbacks to one run on four hits over seven innings in the Cubs' 9-2 victory on Tuesday.

Hammel's only mistake on the night was giving up a home run to backup catcher Tuffy Gosewisch. Otherwise, he was nearly perfect, allowing only three singles while not walking a batter. The great outing leaves him with a 3-1 record, 2.60 ERA and 0.69 WHIP through four starts, and while it's not always sexy, Hammel has mixed league value when he's going this well. He takes on the Brewers in Miller Park on Sunday.

James Shields was quite effective in Tuesday's start, allowing two runs (one earned) over six innings as the Royals defeated the Indians 8-2.

Shields got his second victory of the season, allowing only six hits and a walk while striking out nine. He now carries a 1.91 ERA with a 35/7 K/BB ratio through five starts. Shields can become a free agent after the season and is pitching his way towards a big payday. Shields will try to keep the good times rolling against the Orioles next.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in his return to Fenway Park, and the Yankees beat the Red Sox 9-3 on Tuesday.

Ellsbury was unfazed in his return to his former home, as he led off the game with a double and came around to score on a Derek Jeter single. Ellsbury collected two RBI of his own with another double in the fifth inning. The two-hit game was his third in his last five games, and the 30-year-old is batting .342 -- fourth-highest in the American League among qualified hitters -- thus far this season.

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres have had active talks with teams involving a trade of Nick Hundley.

Hundley has been given just 21 plate appearances this season as the Padres juggle three catchers on their roster, though he is batting .333/.333/.619. San Diego seems satisfied with Yasmani Grandal and Rene Rivera as their catching tandem, making Hundley and his $4 million salary expendable. The 30-year-old has hit just .238/.297/.393 during his career, but he has some pop and could produce some decent offensive numbers away from Petco Park.

Melky Cabrera continued his hot hitting, going 1-for-5 with a home run as the Blue Jays defeated the Orioles on Tuesday.

Cabrera has now hit safely in 19 of his 20 games to start the season and is now hitting .337. He put the game out of reach in the bottom of the eighth, blasting a three-run home run off of Josh Stinson to make it 9-3. Cabrera now has five home runs to go along with his high average, seemingly putting last year's issues to rest.

Albert Pujols made history on Tuesday, blasting his 499th and 500th home runs as the Angels defeated the Nationals 7-2.

Pujols took Taylor Jordan deep for No. 499 in the first inning, a three-run blast. Then he became the 26th member of the 500 home run club with a two-run homer to left-center. Pujols, 34, is the third-youngest to join the fraternity. Pujols now leads the league with eight home runs on the season and is carrying a .274/.337/.619 line. Reports of his demise may have been greatly exaggerated.
