Domonic Brown (heel) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Mets.

Brown left Saturday's game with right heel soreness and still isn't back to 100 percent. Darin Ruf is starting in left field Tuesday.

Jeurys Familia blew the save in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Braves, surrendering two runs on three hits over 2/3 of an inning.

Familia came into the game with a runner on third and two outs in the eighth inning. The Mets were clinging to a 3-2 advantage at the time. While he would escape that jam via a strikeout of Preston Tucker, no such luck in the ninth inning. Dansby Swanson led off with a four-pitch walk against the closer, which Johan Camargo followed up with a game-tying RBI triple. Two batters later, Ender Inciarte scored Camargo on a drag bunt single to win the game. The two runs scored against him on Saturday were the first two Familia has allowed all year. He figures to be able to bounce back from this one quickly enough, once the sting abates.

Jacob deGrom was on his game while taking a no-decision in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Braves, striking 10 over the course of seven scoreless innings of work.

A masterful outing from deGrom, who pitched brilliantly only to see his team squander a 3-0 lead over the final two innings of the game. Not only did he strike out 10, he walked just two while limiting the Braves to four total hits -- only one of which went for extra bases. With this brilliant outing in the books, deGrom will carry a 2.53 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 40/8 K/BB ratio into a road start against the Cardinals when he next he trots to the mound. He has struck out 22 batters over his last two starts (covering 14 1/3 innings).

C.J. Cron went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-run home runs in Saturday's 10-1 win over the Twins.

Both home runs played a major role in the victory. With the Rays trailing 1-0 in the third inning, Cron stepped to the plate and flipped the scoreboard, swatting a two-out, two-run home run off Kyle Gibson. Cron's crew would not trail again in the contest, but just for good measure, he put the game out of reach with yet another two-run shot in the seventh inning to cap off a five-run frame for the home team. He's up to four homers for the campaign.. In addition, the first baseman is slashing .264/.316/.472 and has driven in 11 runs over the course of 72 at-bats. Cron has been good for 16 home runs -- on the nose -- each of the last three seasons, so he's a fair bit ahead of pace right now.

Blake Snell surrendered one run on five hits over seven innings innings Saturday's 10-1 win over the Twins.

Snell struck out six without issuing a walk in the crisp win. He finished his early evening's work having thrown an even 100 pitches, 68 of those for strikes. A Miguel Sano sacrifice fly in the first inning served as the lone damage to the scoreboard on his watch, though he did have a touch-and-go moment late in his outing, as he had to work around a leadoff double from Robbie Grossman in the seventh inning. The Rays were holding a 2-1 lead at the time. He survived, and will now carry a 2.54 ERA, 0.99 and 32/10 K/BB ratio (28 1/3 innings) into a road showdown with the Orioles next time out. Had Snell not been roughed up by the Yankees for five runs in his second start of the season, those numbers would be even better. He has allowed zero or one run in all four of his other outings on the year.

Buster Posey was scratched from Saturday's game against the Angels with back tightness.

Posey's thumb has given him problems in recent days, so in that sense it's a positive that the thumb isn't the issue this time. The bad news is that he's now got a back issue to contend with. Pablo Sandoval is serving as the designated hitter Saturday in Posey's stead.
Apr 21 - 8:39 PM

Yoan Moncada's removal from Saturday's game against the Astros was described as a manager's decision.

The Astros were torching Lucas Giolito and the Sox, and apparently White Sox manager Rick Renteria didn't like something he saw from Moncada. The good news is that it isn't injury-related, so assuming the discipline doesn't extend beyond Saturday, the 22-year-old should be back in there Sunday.
Apr 21 - 8:20 PM

Rhys Hoskins went 2-for-3 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in a 6-2 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

He belted a three-run jack off reliever Michael Feliz in the sixth inning and followed that with an RBI-single to right in the eighth frame. Hoskins broke into the league by hitting 18 dingers in his first 50 major league games last year. He is not quite matching that homer pace this year but his overall numbers are much better. He is slashing .328/.488/.639 with four homers, 19 RBI and 15 runs scored in 20 games. He's even pitched in three stolen bases already.
Apr 21 - 7:59 PM

Mike Clevinger tossed a complete-game, two-hit shutout against the Orioles in Saturday's 4-0 win.

He didn't blow them away but the Orioles just couldn't figure him out. He limited the O's to a pair of harmless singles and two walks while recording three strikeouts. It took him just 107 pitches to complete the shutout. Clevinger had a surprisingly strong season last year but has taken his game to a whole new level in 2018. He moves to 2-0 with a 1.75 ERA and 1.05 WHIP after four starts. He will try to keep it rolling against the Mariners on Thursday.
Apr 21 - 7:19 PM

Anthony Rendon (toe) was not in the Nationals' lineup for a seventh straight game Saturday, but manager Dave Martinez said he's available to pinch-hit.

That's an interesting revelation, since a pinch-hit appearance would reset the clock on any potential DL stint. What it says is, the team thinks he's close, despite having not played in the past week. Rendon fouled a ball off his toe in a game on April 13 but X-rays came back negative and he's been day to day ever since. The infielder is likely a day or two away from a return to the lineup.
Apr 21 - 7:13 PM

Xander Bogaerts (ankle) will embark on a two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday.

If Tuesday and Wednesday's games go well, Bogaerts could be activated after Thursday's off day. He's been sidelined since April 9 with a small fracture in his left ankle, but the recovery has gone smoothly to this point. Brock Holt and Tzu-Wei Lin have filled in at shortstop in his absence.
Apr 21 - 6:52 PM

A source tells Jack Curry of the YES Network that Yankees top prospect Gleyber Torres will be promoted before Sunday's game.

Torres performed well in camp and hasn't stopped hitting since the regular season began, slashing .370/.415/.543 in 13 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. With the arbitration threshold cleared, the Yanks have decided his time is now in New York. Torres will likely log most of his time at second base, though he could also play third and spell Didi Gregorius at short.
