Carlos Gomez had a terrific night in Saturday's 4-2 extra-inning victory over the Mets, going 4-for-5 with a homer and two RBI.

Gomez also deftly swiped his 39th base of the season. One of the most dynamic players in the entire league, Gomez has dazzled with his combination of power and speed this season, slashing .283/.337/.507 with 24 homers, 73 RBI and 39 steals in 146 games. He'll likely be one of the first ten outfielders off the board in next season's fantasy drafts.

As expected, Garrett Richards (knee) will start Sunday afternoon against the Astros.

Richards tore his left patellar tendon last August. It's a welcome return, as the Angels' rotation entered Saturday with the fifth-highest ERA in the American League. Richards enjoyed a breakout season last year, compiling a 13-4 record, 2.61 ERA, and 1.04 WHIP over 26 starts. Expect more of the same in 2015.

Mitch Moreland (elbow) is not in the Rangers' starting lineup on Saturday night.

But he was able to take pregame batting practice, so that's a good early indication that he will be able to avoid minor elbow surgery. Shin-Soo Choo is serving as the designated hitter for Texas on Saturday against the Mariners and Carlos Peguero is in right field. Moreland can be considered day-to-day.

Court documents show Josh Hamilton has filed for divorce from his wife Katie in Tarrant County, Texas.

Hamilton filed for divorce in late February, around the same time reports surfaced of his latest drug relapse. Hamilton was able to avoid suspension from Major League Baseball, much to the chagrin of his own team. The Angels don't want to pay the underachieving 33-year-old outfielder and have been publicly feuding with him since the spring. He hasn't even been healthy enough to play thanks to a shoulder injury. Los Angeles' five-year deal with Hamilton is looking worse by the day.

Danny Salazar racked up 10 strikeouts over six innings as he defeated the Twins in his season debut on Saturday.

The young right-hander surrendered two runs on six hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The Indians are committed to keeping Salazar in the rotation and he showed a glimpse of why that is with this terrific start. He'll look to keep things rolling when he takes the ball against the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

Jose Abreu blasted a grand slam home run on Saturday, helping to power the White Sox to a 12-3 victory over the Tigers in Detroit.

Abreu's slam came as part of a seven-run fourth inning that chased Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. He would also add a single and a double in the rout, finishing the afternoon 3-for-6 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .250/.302/.550 with three homers and six RBI on the young season.
Apr 18 - 4:26 PM

Alcides Escobar (knee) is not in the Royals starting lineup on Saturday.

Escobar strained his knee Friday when Oakland's Brett Lawrie took him out with a hard slide at second base. Christian Colon will fill in at shortstop. Escobar was off to a good start before the injury, hitting .326 with seven runs and five RBI. Consider him day-to-day.
Apr 18 - 4:20 PM

Josh Donaldson blasted a walk off home run leading off the tenth inning on Saturday, propelling the Blue Jays to a 6-5 victory over the Braves.

Donaldson belted his first two homers of the season on Friday and carried that power surge right over through Saturday's contest. He finished the afternoon 3-for-4 and also scored a pair of runs, and is now hitting an impressive .340/.396/.596 with 10 RBI on the year.
Apr 18 - 4:15 PM

Billy Hamilton left Saturday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent injury.

Hamilton legged out an infield single in the top of the eighth inning but had to leap over Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams and landed awkwardly. It looked like it might have been a groin strain. There should be an update from the Reds within the hour.
Apr 18 - 4:15 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 3:43 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 2:45 PM

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.
