Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored in the Orioles' 9-5 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Making his major league debut, the 21-year-old didn't disappoint. He scored on Ryan Flaherty home runs in the third and eighth innings, and he also hit a homer of his own in the sixth. Owners in keeper or dynasty leagues shouldn't go crazy on one game, but the performance offered a glimpse of what he's capable of in the future. He'll be a name to watch as early as next season.

White Sox placed LHP Chris Sale on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 18, with a left flexor muscle strain.

This will be Sale's first ever trip to the disabled list. The good news is that he's not dealing with any ligament damage. The White Sox are hoping he won't have to miss more than 15 days, but it remains to be seen.

MLB suspended Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado for five games and fined him for $2,500 for his role in Sunday's benches-clearing brawl with the Pirates.

It's unclear whether he will appeal the suspension. Maldonado was right in the middle of Sunday's scrum and could be seen landing a punch on Pirates' outfielder Travis Snider. Look for MLB to announce punishments for additional players soon.

Yankees activated RHP David Robertson from the 15-day disabled list.

Robertson landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a Grade 1 groin strain, but he was cleared to return after he made it through an appearance in extended spring training on Saturday without any issues. He'll return to the closer role while Shawn Kelley will once again pitch in a set-up capacity.

Shin-Shoo Choo will undergo an MRI on his left ankle Tuesday.

Choo left Monday's game after he injured the ankle while stepping on first base awkwardly. X-rays came back negative, but the Rangers still want to rule out the possibility of a more serious injury. We should know more about his status Tuesday evening.

Carlos Ruiz broke out in Monday's win against the Dodgers, going 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, a homer, two runs scored and four RBI in a 7-0 win.

Between Cliff Lee's eight shutout innings and Ruiz's Mike Piazza impersonation in the cleanup slot, Philadelphia didn't need more than their battery duo to dispatch the Dodgers easily. Ruiz entered this contest with an ugly .204/.328/.286 slash line. In those 49 at-bats, he'd managed zero RBI, four doubles and zero homers.

Cliff Lee fired eight shutout frames, striking out 10, in a 7-0 win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Los Angeles was flummoxed, eking out four singles and zero walks against the perennial Cy Young contender. Do you remember when Lee coughed up eight runs in five innings on Opening Day against the Rangers? No? Good, because we don't either. In the four starts since, he's surrendered just four runs over 30 innings, and posted an utterly insane 37/1 K/BB ratio in so doing. Lee faces a dangerous lineup in a difficult environment this weekend, but his odds for a win against the demoralized Bronson Arroyo and the punch-drunk Diamondbacks are high.

Matt Harrison (back) is on pace to rejoin the Rangers' rotation on Friday.

Harrison threw a light bullpen session on Monday and will throw a full session Tuesday before the Rangers officially make a decision about his status. The left-hander tossed eight shutout innings in his last rehab start, so as long as he's feeling healthy after Tuesday's 'pen session, he'll be ready to roll Friday.
Apr 21 - 10:59 PM

Clayton Kershaw (back) is on track to begin a rehab assignment on Friday.

Kershaw declared after a 50-pitch simulated game Sunday that he was ready for a rehab assignment, but the Dodgers will make him throw one more bullpen session on Tuesday first. Assuming he gets through that 'pen session with no issues, he'll then be assigned to a minor league affiliate. The left-hander should rejoin the Dodgers' rotation in mid-May if all goes well.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that James Paxton is likely to need 6-8 weeks of rehab from when he first suffered his lat injury.

He suffered the injury on April 8, so that means he's not going to return until late May at the very earliest. Paxton will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, at which point he's hoping to be cleared to begin playing catch. However, obviously the M's plan to take things slowly with him.
Apr 21 - 6:37 PM

Chris Sale will likely be scratched from Tuesday's start against the Tigers.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Sale is dealing with general soreness, comparing it to what he has dealt with in each of the last two seasons. It sounds like he might only need to be pushed back a couple of days, but this situation is obviously worth monitoring. Andre Rienzo is a candidate to fill in Tuesday.
Apr 21 - 5:23 PM

Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

Gonzalez left Sunday's game with left knee tendinitis, but he intends to play through it. The Rockies and fantasy owners will have to cross their fingers for the star outfielder.
