Jake Peavy turned in a surprising gem Tuesday, holding the Braves to one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory.

Peavy entered the game with a 7.26 ERA over his first 10 starts of the season, so this was unexpected even in a juicy matchup. The veteran right-hander permitted a leadoff single to Tyler Flowers in the fifth inning and that was it, as he faced the minimum through seven frames. He had thrown only 77 pitches, but manager Bruce Bochy had no choice but to pinch-hit for Peavy as the offense rallied in the eighth. Peavy will have a much tougher matchup on Sunday in St. Louis.

Jurickson Profar belted his first major league home run since September of 2013 in Tuesday's victory over the Indians.

The longball was a solo shot off of Corey Kluber in the fifth inning. Profar also singled and scored a run. The infielder is sporting a .348/.348/.565 batting line five games since taking over at second base for the suspended Rougned Odor. The Rangers are reportedly considering keeping Profar on the major league roster after Odor returns, although it remains to be seen how they'd plan to get him playing time.

Dodgers recalled LHP Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Urias is being throwing back into the Los Angeles rotation with Alex Wood (triceps) suddenly landing on the disabled list Tuesday. The young southpaw gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in 2 2/3 innings last Friday in his major league debut against the Mets, but he has terrific stuff and it looks like his second MLB start will come this weekend against the punchless Braves. There's no official schedule yet.

Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 15-day disabled list with left posterior elbow soreness.

Wood began experiencing the discomfort after his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. He'll be examined and likely run through some tests before the Dodgers can come up with a proper recovery timetable. Julio Urias is going to take the vacant rotation spot.

Seth Smith cranked two home runs in an epic beatdown of his former team the Padres on Tuesday.

Smith took James Shields deep for a three-run homer in the third inning, then added a solo shot off Padres reliever Luis Perdomo in the fifth. He wrapped up his day going 2-for-4 with a walk plus four RBI and three runs scored. The 33-year-old outfielder shows no signs of aging. He is slashing .269/.392/.438 with six longballs, 26 runs scored, and 22 RBI.

Yasiel Puig was scratched from the Dodgers' lineup on Tuesday because of a sore left hamstring.

Trayce Thompson will start in right field and Carl Crawford will start in left field versus Cubs ace Jake Arrieta. Puig was limited to 79 games in 2015 largely because of hamstring issues, so this will be a situation to monitor over the next couple days. He's slashing just .239/.286/.364 over his first 196 plate appearances in 2016.

Brandon Phillips was scratched from the Reds' lineup Tuesday due to a sore left foot.

The veteran second baseman is considered day-to-day. Jordan Pacheco will fill in at Coors Field.
May 31 - 7:56 PM

George Springer blasted his 12th longball of the season on Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Springer’s monster game saw him go 3-for-4 with the home run, four RBI, and two runs scored. He was also hit by a pitch but escaped unharmed. The Astros slugger now sports a strong .288/.376/.509 slash line on the season.

Dodgers designated INF/OF Alex Guerrero for assignment.

Guerrero's 20-day minor league rehab assignment came to an end Sunday and the Dodgers don't currently have a spot for the 29-year-old on their major league roster, so they decided to go ahead and cut him loose. Guerrero, signed to a $28 million deal out of Cuba in 2013, was 9-for-66 (.136) in 16 games this season between High-A Rancho Cucamonga, Double-A Tulsa, and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll probably be officially released within the next 10 days, after he clears waivers.
May 31 - 7:15 PM

Rich Hill (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

If it goes well, he should be cleared to pitch this weekend against the Astros. Hill left his start Sunday versus the Tigers after suffering a mild groin strain. He went 6 1/3 strong innings in that outing and boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 74 strikeouts over 64 total innings this season.
May 31 - 7:03 PM

Blue Jays acquired RHP Jason Grilli from the Braves for RHP Sean Ratcliffe.

Grilli has posted an ugly 5.29 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, and 23/13 K/BB ratio in 17 innings this season, but the Blue Jays apparently believe he has something left in the tank. The 39-year-old right-hander will presumably join up with the Jays on Wednesday in Toronto. He figures to pitch in low-leverage situations initially.
