Jean Segura (head) is expected to return to the Brewers' lineup on Tuesday.

Segura was hit on the helmet by a Pedro Strop fastball on Sunday, but he'll wind up missing just one game. The young shortstop is sporting a .289/.324/.381 batting line with one homer and five stolen bases this season.

Jake Odorizzi picked up his third win on Monday, holding the Red Sox to one run over seven innings.

Odorizzi scattered seven hits without issuing a walk and striking out six. The Red Sox plated their only run in the second inning following a Xander Bogaerts triple. The 25-year-old Odorizzi has been close to lights-out through his first six starts, owning a 2.21 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and a 32/8 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. He'll test his stuff next in a home start versus the Rangers.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday's game that Hanley Ramirez's left shoulder injury is not a "clear-cut DL" situation.

Farrell referred to Ramirez, who has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain following a collision with the side wall, as day-to-day. It's certainly possible that Hanley could still wind up going on the disabled list, but Farrell's words are encouraging. Ramirez has had surgery on the shoulder twice before.

Jeff Francoeur went 4-for-5 with an RBI double and an RBI triple to help the Phillies earn a win over the Braves on Monday.

Francoeur started the scoring in the first inning with an RBI double, then came around to score later on Carlos Ruiz's two-run single. He added an RBI triple in the ninth inning to provide some insurance. Prior to the outburst, Francoeur had been held hitless in 18 plate appearances in his previous six games. He's batting a paltry .214/.267/.386 with two home runs and six RBI, but he should continue to see regular playing time in right field until Domonic Brown is deemed ready to return to the majors.

Anthony Rendon (knee) will be shut down indefinitely after being diagnosed with a left oblique strain.

It's been a nightmarish start to the season for Rendon, who has been out all year with a left MCL sprain and now a strained oblique. The Nationals aren't sure how serious the oblique strain is at this point but hope to know more after the infielder is examined further on Tuesday. It's probably a safe bet that we won't see Rendon this month.
May 4 - 10:07 PM

Yunel Escobar had a perfect at the plate, recording five hits in as many at-bats, as the Nationals topped the Marlins on Monday.

All five hits were singles. Despite reaching base so often, the Nationals only brought him around to score once, in the first inning on Ryan Zimmerman's sacrifice fly. Escobar broke a 4-4 tie in the eighth inning with a two-run single to right field, which proved to be the deciding hit. Escobar hasn't recorded an extra-base hit since April 22, but the Nationals will take his .311/.361/.411 triple-slash line nevertheless.
May 4 - 9:51 PM

R.A. Dickey tossed eight strong innings, allowing only one run, in a win against the Yankees on Monday.

Dickey was working on a shutout until Garret Jones brought home a run in the seventh with a ground out. The knuckleballer gave up only three hits and three walks in total, and didn't record a strikeout. The outing moves Dickey into the win column for the first time this season, improving his record to 1-3. He also owns a 4.38 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 20/16 K/BB ratio in 39 innings. Dickey will match up against the Red Sox at home in his next outing.
May 4 - 9:33 PM

Leonys Martin left Monday's game versus the Astros in the fifth inning with a sprained left wrist.

Martin hurt the wrist while trying to make a catch. He stayed in the game initially but eventually had to be pulled after the pain evidently became too much. The outfielder has been sent for X-rays and an update on his status should be available later Monday.
May 4 - 9:25 PM

Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will face hitters on May 11.

He'll throw two more bullpen sessions prior to that. Doolittle's recovery from a slight tear in his rotator cuff is coming along nicely and he could conceivably rejoin the Athletics' bullpen later this month. He figures to be eased back into closing duties.
May 4 - 6:34 PM

Mariners placed OF Austin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain.

Jackson suffered the injury when he landed on first base awkwardly during Sunday's game. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Justin Ruggiano is in line for a bump in playing time while Jackson is on the shelf.
May 4 - 6:25 PM

Adam Ottavino revealed Monday that he's likely to have Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

The warning alarm was sounded when it was reported last Friday that Ottavino was seeking multiple opinions on his elbow, and the reliever's worst fears have come true. It's brutal news for Ottavino, as he had taken over the Rockies' closer role and appeared poised for a breakthrough season. He'll now be sidelined likely until around midseason next year. John Axford has assumed the ninth inning role for the Rox, although it's possible LaTroy Hawkins could eventually get another shot when he returns from a biceps injury.
