Matt Holliday (back) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Monday.

Holliday was a late scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back stiffness, but he's clearly feeling much better. The outfielder has been red-hot of late, batting .516/.583/.710 over his last seven contests.

Royals placed RHP Greg Holland on the 15-day disabled list with a right pectoral strain.

Holland hasn't allowed a run in four appearances this season, but must have incurred the injury during Friday's appearance. Wade Davis will presumably handle the ninth-inning gig while Holland is sidelined and is a tremendous addition in any mixed leagues where he's unowned.

Matt Holliday was removed from Saturday's game against the Reds in the second inning due to mild tightness in his back.

The Cardinals are calling his early exit purely precautionary. It wouldn't be surprising to see the veteran outfielder get a day of rest on Sunday as well, but the team should have an update on his status after the game.

Orioles placed INF Jonathan Schoop on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 1 PCL tear in his left knee.

Schoop also has a sprained MCL. He sustained the injury in Friday's game from a hard slide by Pablo Sandoval at second base. The O's are encouraged that there was no damage to his ACL and are optimistic that he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season. Ryan Flaherty and Everth Cabrera should both see regular playing time in Baltimore's middle infield for now.

Jonathan Schoop is heading to the disabled list after being diagnosed with a Grade 1 PCL tear and MCL sprain.

Schoop was the victim of a hard slide into second base by Pablo Sandoval during Friday's game and was spotted limping around the clubhouse on Saturday. It's a tough blow for the Orioles and for fantasy owners of the young infielder. O's manager Buck Showalter expects him to return before the end of the season, though there is no clear timetable at the moment.

Trevor Plouffe delivered a walk-off solo homer in a 3-2 win over the Indians in 11 innings on Friday night.

How's that for a slump-buster? Plouffe came into Friday's action hitting .133 and went hitless over his first four at-bats before taking Bryan Shaw deep to leadoff the bottom of the 11th and send the Target Field fans home happy. The 28-year-old hasn't been able to replicate the power production he had in 2012, but he's capable of being a useful corner infielder in deeper mixed leagues.

Michael Brantley (back) went 2-for-5 in his return to the lineup Friday.

Both hits were singles. Brantley, who served as the DH on Friday, missed the previous four games due to a back injury. The issue has already flared up a couple of times since spring training, so he might not be out of the woods yet.

Michael Wacha fired seven innings of one-run ball in a 6-1 win over the Reds on Friday.

Wacha surrendered a solo homer to Joey Votto in the first inning, but held the Reds off the board the rest of the way. He allowed just five hits and one walk to go along with four strikeouts. The Cardinals put him in line for the win with a rally in the bottom of the seventh. Wacha has won each of his first two starts this season and owns a 1.35 ERA and 6/2 K/BB ratio over 13 1/3 innings. He has major upside if he can stay healthy.

Mike Trout blasted his way into the record books on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and five RBI as the Angels dispatched of the Astros 6-3.

With his sixth inning blast off Roberto Hernandez, Trout became the youngest player in baseball history to accumulate 100 home runs and 100 stolen bases, accomplishing the feat at 23 years and 253 days old, 56 days younger than the previous record-setter Alex Rodriguez. For good measure, he added a three-run bomb off Chad Qualls in the eighth inning to lead the Halos to victory. Already the game's best all-around player, it's scary to think how much better Trout will become.

Alex Rodriguez had a monster night in Friday's 5-4 win over the Rays, slugging two home runs and hitting a go-ahead RBI single.

He's still got it. Rodriguez launched a solo homer in the second inning before adding a two-run blast in the sixth. He then put the Yankees ahead for good in the eighth inning with a line drive single to center field. This was the 61st multi-homer game of his career and his first since May 23, 2012. He's now up to 658 home runs for his career, which puts him two away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list. After missing a year due to a PED suspension, the 39-year-old Rodriguez is batting .344/.432/.781 with four home runs and 11 RBI through 10 games.

Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a walk-off RBI single in a 3-2 win over the Orioles on Friday night.

Mike Napoli led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a walk against Brian Matusz before Daniel Nava sacrificed him over to second and Bogaerts cashed him in with a bloop single to right field. It was his first career walk-off hit. Bogaerts, who also had a run scored on the night, now owns a healthy .395/.452/.474 batting line through nine games this season. The Red Sox are 7-3 on the year.
Apr 17 - 11:05 PM

Stephen Vogt delivered the first multi-homer game of his career in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Vogt followed a solo blast by Ike Davis with one of his own off Jeremy Guthrie in the fourth inning to tie the game at 3-3. He'd later tag Guthrie again in the seventh for another solo shot, once again bringing the A's even at 4-4. He finished the career night 3-for-4 and is now hitting an impressive .353/.421/.735 with eight RBI in his first season as the A's full-time starting catcher.
