Mark Mulder will attempt a comeback in 2014.

Mulder, 36, decided to give it a shot after he saw Dodgers reliever Paco Rodriguez on TV and picked up something in Rodriguez's delivery that he could emulate. Mulder, who retired after the 2008 season following a pair of shoulder surgeries, recently threw for three clubs and was clocked in the 89-90 mph range. "The best way to describe it is, the ball is coming out of my hand better now than at any point when I was in St. Louis," Mulder said. "I wouldn't be trying this is if I didn't think the stuff I was throwing was good enough [to pitch in the big leagues]."

Carlos Martinez struck out eight batters over eight scoreless innings Monday in the Cardinals' 6-0 victory over the Brewers.

Martinez was 0-5 with a 6.84 ERA in May entering the Memorial Day outing at Miller Park in Milwaukee, but he finished the month with an exclamation point. The hard-throwing righty yielded just five hits -- all singles -- and only issued one walk. He now stands 5-5 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 50 strikeouts in 61 innings (10 starts) this season. Martinez gets the Giants at home next.

Yunel Escobar (wrist) is not in Monday's lineup against the Tigers.

Escobar bruised his right wrist on Sunday and will get a day of rest. Gregorio Petit will start at third base Monday while Kole Calhoun will bat leadoff.

Steven Wright allowed two runs in a complete-game 9-2 victory over the Orioles on Monday.

It was his third complete game of the season, which ties him with Chris Sale, Clayton Kershaw, and Johnny Cueto for the MLB lead. Not a bad group. He threw a career-high 122 pitches to go the distance. The knuckleballer walked five and struck out seven. Wright gave up just four hits, including three of them in a two-run fifth inning. However, he bounced back from there by retiring 13 out of the final 15 batters he faced. Wright has now thrown seven innings or more in four out of his last five starts. He’ll bring a surprising 2.45 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays at home this weekend.

David Ortiz (foot) slugged a solo homer and drew a walk Monday against the Orioles.

This guy. Ortiz was hit in his left foot by a pitch on Saturday and had to be scratched on Sunday due to some lingering soreness, but he felt well enough to give it a go on Monday and has now homered in three straight games. He hasn’t homered in three straight games since July 2014. The 40-year-old continues to go out on a high note. He’s slashing .337/.419/.727 with 14 homers and 47 RBI.

Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk, and two RBI in Monday’s win over the Orioles.

Bogaerts is now riding a 23-game hitting streak. He has multi-hit games in three straight and six out of his last nine. His .354 batting average is tops in the American League and he leads the majors with 75 hits.

David Wright said Monday that he is dealing with a herniated disk in his neck.

Wright has now missed three straight games with the neck issue and appears likely to hit the disabled list. More should be known about his status on Tuesday, but the Mets will likely use a combination of Wilmer Flores and Ty Kelly at third base for now.
May 30 - 4:33 PM

Josh Harrison (illness) is back in Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

Harrison has missed each of the last two games due to illness, but he's feeling better now. He's batting leadoff against left-hander Justin Nicolino in his return to action.
May 30 - 4:15 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Monday that they aren't ruling out Rich Hill (groin) from making his next start.

Melvin said Hill was still "a little bit sore" after leaving Sunday's start against the Tigers with a mild groin strain, but they'll see how he feels over the next couple of days before making an official decision. The A's have an off-day on Thursday and next Monday, so they have the flexibility to push him back if necessary.
May 30 - 4:11 PM

Mike Foltynewicz tossed six innings of one-run ball Monday in the Braves' 5-3 defeat of the Giants.

Folty gave up a solo homer to Brandon Belt in the top of the second inning, but his line was otherwise clean in the Memorial Day game at Turner Field. He yielded only three total hits and struck out four, moving to 2-2 on the year with a 3.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 28/8 K/BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings. The young righty is a pretty intriguing deep-league option. He gets the Dodgers on the road next.

X-rays came back negative on Matt Duffy's left wrist.

Duffy exited Monday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left wrist, but fortunately it doesn't appear to be serious. He can be considered day-to-day.
May 30 - 4:04 PM

Matt Harvey fired seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the White Sox on Monday.

Coming off two disaster starts against the Nationals, Harvey bounced back with his best (and longest) outing of the season. That’s baseball for you. He also had his highest fastball velocity of the season. Harvey limited the White Sox to just two hits and one walk while striking out six batters. He appeared to be in some trouble after the first two batters reached in the seventh and were moved over to second and third after a sacrifice bunt, but he got Todd Frazier to foul out to first base before retiring J.B. Shuck on a ground out. It was an encouraging step in the right direction for Harvey. He’ll try to keep it going this weekend against the Marlins in Miami.
