Latest Headlines

According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, the Mets are open to trading Daniel Murphy this winter.

The 28-year-old second baseman is coming off a career year in which he slashed .286/.319/.415 with 13 homers, 92 runs scored, 78 RBI and 23 stolen bases. He's a very aggressive hitter though, which doesn't fit with the style being preached by general manager Sandy Alderson or the team's hitting coaches. With his value at an all-time high, he could net the Mets a solid return package via trade.

Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Saturday.

It was his first time throwing off a mound since landing on the DL earlier this month. Iwakuma didn't seem too happy with his results on Saturday, claiming it "wasn't the best bullpen." When asked how his shoulder felt, Iwakuma said, "I feel OK. I would like to move forward. Hopefully it will get better." Obviously Iwakuma is in the very early stages of his recovery and still has a long way to go. There's no timetable for his return.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Justin Turner (hamstring) will need a minor league rehab assignment before he's activated from the disabled list.

That's likely to happen sometime next week. If all goes well, Turner could be back with the Dodgers by the end of their seven-game road trip which begins on Monday. Turner was hitting a league-leading .379 before landing on the DL with a strained hamstring.

Jose Bautista smashed a three-run homer off Yu Darvish to lead his club to a 3-1 victory over the Rangers on Saturday.

Coming to the plate with two out in the fifth inning with runners on first and third, Bautista smoked a hanging breaking ball from Darvish well over the wall in left field. It was all the offense the Blue Jays would need to win the game. Bautista was ice cold for the entire month of April, but has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball lately. For the season he has a .236 batting average with nine home runs and 26 RBI.

C.C. Sabathia picked up his fifth victory of the season on Saturday, striking out nine over 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball against the Athletics.

The veteran southpaw allowed six hits and three walks on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came late, with an RBI double from Ryon Healy in the sixth and a solo blast by Josh Phegley in the seventh. Now 5-2 on the season, Sabathia will carry a 4.42 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Saturday that James Paxton (forearm) will return from the disabled list to start against the Rockies on Wednesday.

That had been the target date all along and Paxton was able to avoid any setbacks in his recovery. The left-hander has been sidelined for nearly a month due to a strained forearm. Before landing on the shelf, he registered a 1.43 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings across six starts.

Daniel Murphy is once again out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Saturday.

Acting manager Chris Speier indicated nothing was wrong physically on Friday, but it's a troubling sign that he's sitting out a second straight game. Wilmer Difo is starting in his place again and batting eighth for the Nationals on Saturday.

J.D. Martinez is not in the Tigers' starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

He'll surely be back in there for the nightcap. JaCoby Jones is starting in his place in right field and batting eighth against Tyler Danish on Saturday afternoon.

White Sox signed OF Luis Robert to a $26 million contract.

The White Sox will hold a press conference on Saturday to announce the signing. The 19-year-old is considered an elite-level talent and a terrific get for the White Sox.

Tigers placed 2B Ian Kinsler on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Kinsler has been playing through a minor hamstring injury, but apparently tweaked it again during Friday's game. Look for Andrew Romine and Dixon Machado to handle the bulk of the reps at second base in his absence.
May 27 - 11:43 AM

Bud Norris is considered day-to-day with soreness in his right knee.

The injury forced the veteran right-hander to leave Friday's game against the Marlins. It doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him held out through the rest of the weekend as a precautionary measure.
May 26 - 11:56 PM

Devon Travis had a monster day at the plate on Friday, going 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in a 7-6 victory over the Rangers.

Travis got the Blue Jays on the board with a grand slam off of A.J. Griffin in the second inning. He wound up finishing the night just a triple shy of the cycle. After a miserable start to the season, Travis' bat has heated up substantially in recent weeks and he's now hitting .252/.287/.439 with four homers, 19 RBI and four stolen bases on the season.
