Orioles signed OF/DH Delmon Young to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Young shouldn't have trouble earning an Opening Day roster spot, as there's playing time available for him at designated hitter and possibly left field. The 28-year-old hit .260/.307/.407 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI in 103 games between the Phillies and Rays in 2013. He's a career .303/.341/.471 hitter against left-handed pitching.

Brandon Belt swatted a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning to propel the Giants to a 9-5 win over the Rockies on Sunday.

In a 5-5 game in the seventh inning, Belt stepped to the dish with two on and lefty Jake McGee on the bump for the Rox. Belt delivered, as he has often this year, knocking a three-run jack over the right field wall to give the Giants the late lead. The first baseman has surprisingly been one of the best hitters in the National League this year, batting .313/.413/.594 with 11 homers, 29 RBI and 28 runs scored. He's been especially dangerous in the past week, recording six multi-hit games since last Sunday. Few are locked in like he is right now.

Shohei Ohtani struck out nine while allowing two runs over 7 2/3 innings in the Angels' 5-2 win over the Rays Sunday.

Ohtani gave up six hits, including a solo homer, and walked one in the contest. It was the third time in seven starts this year that he's struck out nine or more, and he's got five quality starts in those seven outings. The 23-year-old epitome of a dual threat is 4-1 with a 3.35 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 52/14 K/BB ratio on the bump and is hitting .321/.367/.619 in 84 at-bats. A big test looms for Ohtani next weekend when the Halos visit the Yankees.

Blake Parker was called up to close out Sunday's win over the Rays, striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save.

Nobody really has any idea what to make of the back end of the Angels' bullpen with Keynan Middleton now sidelined, so it's worth noting that Parker got the call to protect a three-run lead. He did it with little drama, allowing a hit but striking out two, including Johnny Field to end it, for his second save of the year. Parker is perhaps the most talented option that exists for manager Mike Scioscia, one who could provide some strikeouts and good ratios for fantasy owners along with saves. If he's available in your league, it's worth speculating that Sunday was a harbinger for things to come.
May 20 - 8:12 PM

Jack Flaherty struck out 13 and allowed a lone run over 7 2/3 innings Sunday, leading the Cardinals to a 5-1 win over the Phillies.

Flaherty was nothing short of terrific in this one, giving up just two hits -- one being a Rhys Hoskins solo homer for the only Phillies run of the game -- and walking one to go with the 13 punchouts. The 13 strikeouts in a single game tied a Cardinals rookie record, and he's now struck out 27 through 23 1/3 innings of work this year. The young righty likely has a spot in the Cards' rotation locked down for the near future given their pitching woes, and he'll carry a 2.31 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into Saturday's contest against the Pirates.
May 20 - 7:47 PM

Logan Morrison hit a bases-loaded, go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning of Sunday's 3-1 win over the Brewers.

With two on and one out, the Brewers opted to intentionally walk Eduardo Escobar to bring up Morrison to face lefty reliever Boone Logan with the bases loaded. LoMo won the battle, lining a single off the right field wall to plate two. Morrison now has 17 RBI to go with a disappointing .211/.318/.376 line in 39 games this year.
May 20 - 7:15 PM

Jesus Aguilar homered for the third consecutive game Sunday, but couldn't help the Brewers overcome the Twins.

Aguilar took Twins starter Jake Odorizzi deep in the sixth inning to tie the game at 1-1 -- one of the only hits the Brewers could muster against Odorizzi on the afternoon -- and finished 2-for-4 in the game. The homer was his fourth in his last three games, giving him seven on the year. Few are hotter than the 27-year-old, who's hitting a robust .333/.395/.608 through Sunday's contest.
May 20 - 7:04 PM

Tyler Austin homered twice and drove in four runs as the Yankees pummeled the Royals 10-1 on Sunday.

Austin was a big fan of Royals starter Eric Skoglund, twice victimizing him for two-run homers before the lefty was chased from the contest. Neither one was cheap, either, as he hit one way out to left in the fourth inning before going to straight away center an inning later. Austin has run hot and cold this year, but he's in the midst of a heater at present, having gone 6-for-11 with three homers and seven RBI in his last three games. The hot streak has the 26-year-old's overall line up to .261/.324/.587 with eight homers and 23 RBI through Sunday.
May 20 - 6:00 PM

Reynaldo Lopez dominated the Rangers over eight innings, allowing just two hits en route to a 3-0 win Sunday.

Lopez kept the Rangers off balance all day, mixing high heat with a tight breaking ball in allowing just a single and a double on the afternoon. He also walked two and struck out eight in the victory. It was his first of the year in nine tries, but not for lack of success -- through Sunday, Lopez now owns a 2.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the year. He'll square off with the Tigers his next time out, on Friday.
May 20 - 5:31 PM

Dansby Swanson hit a walk-off two-run single to beat the Marlins 10-9 on Sunday.

The Braves entered the ninth trailing 9-4, and the comeback was completed with a two-run single from Swanson to give Atlanta the victory. It was the only hit of the game for the shortstop, but it's always nice to get run production from your shortstop. On the year, Swanson is hitting .281 with two homers, 16 RBI and a pair of steals over 30 games.
May 20 - 5:26 PM

Christian Villanueva went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in an 8-5 victory over the Pirates on Sunday.

The homer gives Villanueva 12 on the season, and this one came off of Trevor Williams in the fourth inning to give the Padres a 2-1 lead. The hits haven't fallen like they were early in the season, but the 26-year-old infielder has still posted an impressive line of .250/.322/.568 along with the dozen homers and 26 RBI over 39 games. It also makes back-to-back games with homers on the season, so another streak could be coming.
May 20 - 5:07 PM

J.D. Martinez homered twice in a 5-0 blanking of the Orioles on Sunday.

Martinez also drew a walk. The first homer was a solo shot off of Baltimore starter David Hess, and he got Hess again with a runner on in the fifth. He now has 15 blasts on the season, and his three runs batted have him sitting at 41 on the season. Simply put, Martinez is one of the best offensive players in baseball, and he's proven as much so far in 2018.
