Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Tuesday that the club considered moving Brett Cecil back to the rotation during the season.

"We never talked to Brett about it, but we kicked it around for a brief moment because obviously he had success and we had holes that had come up," said Anthopoulos. After years of scuffling as a starter, Cecil found a home in the bullpen this season, posting a 2.82 ERA and 70/23 K/BB ratio over 60 2/3 innings prior to going down with elbow inflammation. The Blue Jays plan to prioritize starting pitching this winter, so ideally Cecil will stay where he is.

Lucas Duda felt a "twinge" in his left elbow in his first rehab game with High-A St. Lucie on Friday, according to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson.

It explains why he wasn't in St. Lucie's lineup Saturday or Sunday. It doesn't appear to be a major setback at this point, but Duda will be shut down until at least Tuesday. We should know more about his potential return later this week.

Aaron Nola felt continued soreness in his lower back following a bullpen session Friday.

The hope had been that Nola would be ready to return to the Phillies' rotation on Monday, but that obviously won't happen now. "After he completed it, he had some symptoms, some soreness or tightness, I guess," manager Pete Mackanin said. "It was decided he will not make his start on Monday. He will be reevaluated to determine his next bullpen. A couple of days ago he said he felt great and then [Friday] not so great. He's improving but he's not 100 percent. There's something bugging him. We're just going to take it day to day. We're being cautious with him this early in the season." With Nola's return date looking uncertain, Nick Pivetta could be in the Philly rotation for a while.

Chris Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore right elbow.

Davis' elbow is still a little tender after he was hit by a pitch on Saturday. He still wanted to play Sunday, so it's probably safe to assume he'll be back in there Monday. Trey Mancini has moved from right field to first base and Craig Gentry entered the lineup in right.

Rajai Davis (hamstring) is on track to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Davis has batted only .214/.262/.375 in the early going for the Athletics, but he'll get his center field job back upon activation and should also spend plenty of time in the leadoff spot.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Sunday that the typical timetable for someone with Adam Eaton's (knee) injuries is 6-9 months.

More will be known after Eaton has surgery, but 6-9 months is the rough expectation right now. Rizzo noted that Eaton had a full thickness tear of his left ACL as well as a meniscus tear and high ankle sprain. The Nationals haven't officially ruled him out for the rest of the season, but that undoubtedly will happen after Eaton goes under the knife. Rizzo added that the club is confident it can fill the center field void internally. It will start with Michael Taylor, but Rafael Bautista also looms as an option. It seems unlikely that top prospect Victor Robles would be pushed to the majors this season given that he's only in High-A and won't turn 20 until next month.

Athletics placed LHP Sean Manaea on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 27, with a left shoulder strain.

He's expected to miss just one start, as the A's could afford to make a DL move with Manaea with Sonny Gray (lat) coming off the DL this week. The left-hander is eligible for activation on May 7.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that he expected Gary Sanchez (biceps) to be on the active roster at this time next week.

Sanchez is slated to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday and should need only a handful of at-bats before being activated. Him re-joining the Yankees for the beginning of their road trip on Friday seems like a realistic scenario.

Blue Jays activated RHP Aaron Sanchez from the 10-day disabled list.

Sanchez will start on Sunday against the Rays. The young right-hander missed the last two weeks of action after undergoing minor surgery to remove part of the nail from his right middle finger. He'll be on a pitch limit in his first start back.

Justin Turner belted a game-tying pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday against the Phillies.

The homer was Turner's first of the season, but fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. He is hitting .388 with a .541 slugging percentage. The scruffy hot corner man has hit safely in 15 straight, longest active streak in the majors. He has at least one RBI in each of his past three outings.
Apr 30 - 2:44 AM

Carlos Gomez hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning Saturday against the Angels to complete the cycle.

It was Gomez's first time hitting for the cycle since May 7, 2008 when he was a member of the Minnesota Twins. There's something about Saturday that brings out the best in Gomez, as he has collected seven hits over his past two games on a Saturday. He is 13-for-34 (.382) over his past nine games to raise his average from .155 to .239 just since April 19.

Matt Kemp went 3-for-5 with three home runs and five RBI to lead the Braves past the Brewers 11-3 on Saturday.

Kemp was an equal opportunity masher, hitting his three homers off three different pitchers from the fifth to the eighth inning. Remarkably, it was the first time in his career that the 32-year-old had a three-homer game. The output doubled his season total and gave him 15 RBI with seven runs scored in just 12 games, after he missed 10 games with a right hamstring strain. In case anyone was wondering, it appears he's over that now.
