Pirates designated RHP James McDonald for assignment.

My, how the mighty have fallen. The 28-year-old former top prospect posted a brilliant 9-3 record, 2.37 ERA and 100/31 K/BB ratio before the All-Star break a season ago, but since then has delivered an abysmal 5.90 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 108 1/3 innings. He's been sidelined since June 21 due to shoulder discomfort, recently progressing to a minor league rehab assignment this week. He's still talented enough to where there should be a team willing to give him a spot on their 40-man roster.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez revealed after Monday's game that Alberto Callaspo was scratched because the club is in the process of trying to trade him.

There had been speculation that he could be designated for assignment, but evidently the Braves might find a taker for him. They'll surely have to eat a good portion of what remains of Callaspo's $3 million salary for this season. The veteran infielder has just three hits in his last 53 at-bats to drop his season average to .206.

Andre Ethier broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning with a solo home run, helping lead the Dodgers past the Braves on Monday.

Ethier started what turned out to be an avalanche of home runs, as Alex Guerrero and Jimmy Rollins followed up with round-trippers of their own. Ethier finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. He has cooled off over the last couple of weeks, but still maintains a stellar .313/.407/.548 triple-slash line with six home runs and 17 RBI.

Mariners activated OF Austin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list.

Jackson batted only .263/.333/.289 over nine rehab games for Tacoma, but he's feeling healthy and that's really all the Mariners care about. The veteran outfielder had been sidelined since early May with a sprained right ankle.

Robinson Cano had two RBI singles in four at-bats Monday as the Mariners won against the Rays.

Cano plated the Mariners' first run in the first inning, then added insurance in the eighth. The second baseman had gone hitless in three consecutive games. He's still batting a disappointing .253/.295/.337 with one home run and 13 RBI.
May 25 - 10:02 PM

Charlie Morton, making his first start of the season, got the win after limiting the Marlins to two runs in seven innings of work on Monday.

Giancarlo Stanton was responsible for both runs, hitting an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the third. Morton had his ground ball stuff working, inducing 20 of them compared to one fly ball. He scattered eight hits overall, walked none, and struck out three. Morton will look to repeat the success in a weekend start in San Diego against the Padres next.

Drew Hutchison pitched a four-hit shutout against the White Sox in Monday's win.

It's the second shutout of Hutchison's career. All four hits were singles and the White Sox only once had a runner reach scoring position. Hutchison also issued zero walks while fanning eight. The terrific outing knocks the right-hander's ERA to 5.12 with a 1.31 WHIP and a 51/16 K/BB ratio in 58 innings. He'll look for more of the same his next time out in Minnesota against the Twins.
May 25 - 9:22 PM

Avisail Garcia is considered day-to-day after leaving Monday's game with more inflammation in his right knee.

Garcia had just returned to action on Sunday after missing two games with the ailment. He singled in his first at-bat Monday but then had to be taken out when the knee acted up on him again. It sets up as a sticky situation for fantasy owners, as Garcia's ailment doesn't appear bad enough to require a disabled list stint but he also might be in and out of the lineup.

Jhonny Peralta singled an ripped a walk-off, solo home run in Monday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

The Cardinals' bullpen coughed up a lead in the eighth inning and they had to pitch out of bases-loaded jam in the top of the 10th. However, Peralta made the wait worth it with a leadoff shot against J.C. Ramirez that just snuck over the left-field wall. The shortstop is putting together an All-Star caliber campaign with a .304/.367/.500 batting line and seven home runs.

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

If that goes well, he should be cleared to begin a rehab assignment. Morrow has been on the shelf since early May with right shoulder inflammation but could be ready to rejoin the Padres' rotation in a couple weeks if all goes well.
May 25 - 7:44 PM

Jesse Hahn was on his game Monday, going the distance for his first career shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Tigers.

Hahn's defense didn't make things easy on him, as he had to navigate around three errors behind him. Three double-play balls helped, as did just one walk and five strikeouts. All four of the Tigers' hits were just singles. After a 5/3 K/BB ratio over his first three starts of the season, Hahn has a 31/9 K/BB ratio since in six outings. He'll bring an improving 3.69 ERA into a home matchup with the Yankees this weekend.
May 25 - 7:08 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (toe) is on pace to be activated from the disabled list on June 1.

Lucroy had an X-ray on Monday to see how his fractured left big toe had healed and said that he received good news. He'll go out on a brief rehab assignment later this week, with the exact time and place to be determined. Lucroy has been on the shelf since mid-April.
