Dallas Braden has told Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle that he will retire.

Braden is just 30 years old, but he's been unable to recover from multiple shoulder surgeries. He had been slated to throw for potentially interested teams at some point in January, but that obviously won't happen now. "There is nothing left in there, it’s just a shredded mess," Braden said. "I left my arm on the mound at the Coliseum, and I’m OK with that." Braden has a perfect game on his resume and retires with a career 4.16 ERA over parts of five seasons.

Daniel Descalso slugged a walk-off home run in the 13th inning on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 2-0 victory over the Rockies.

In a well-pitched and hotly-contested ballgame, the Diamondbacks finally broke through off of Jordan Lyles in the 13th inning. Brandon Drury got things started with an infield single before Descalso crushed the game-winner over the wall in right-center. He finished the afternoon 3-for-6 and is now hitting .178/.275/.333 with two long balls and eight RBI on the year.

Wil Myers blasted a three-run homer in the 12th inning on Sunday, propelling the Padres to a 5-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco.

The Padres had been shut down for the majority of the afternoon by Giants' starter Ty Blach, but they broke through and tied the game with a two-run shot by Hector Sanchez off of Mark Melancon in the ninth. That set the stage for Myers to deliver in the 12th. He had been 0-for-5 on the day before crushing a George Kontos offering into the seats in left field. Myers is off to another impressive start at the dish, slashing .310/.325/.593 with seven homers, 20 RBI and two stolen bases through the first month of the season.

Ty Blach was outstanding in a no-decision against the Padres, allowing just three hits over seven shutout innings.

Blach walked two and struck out one on the afternoon. Of the three hits that he allowed only one, an Austin Hedges double, went for extra bases. So far, Blach has been impressive through his first two starts and he owns a 2.55 ERA and 0.91 WHIP on the season. He'll continue to occupy Madison Bumgarner's spot in the rotation at least through the All-Star break and is worth a look in all mixed leagues. His next turn comes on Saturday against the Reds in Cincinnati.

Bud Norris recorded a four-out save Sunday in the Angels' 5-2 defeat of the Rangers.

Norris struck out four of the five batters he faced between the bottom of the eighth and bottom of the ninth. The former starter is off to an excellent start as a fill-in at closer for the injured Cam Bedrosian, boasting a 2.57 ERA and 19 strikeouts over 14 total innings this season. He has five saves over the last nine days.
Apr 30 - 7:13 PM

Miguel Sano finished 3-for-5 with a homer and five RBI on Sunday versus the Royals.

Sano had a three-run homer in the third and RBI singles in the fourth and sixth as Minnesota marched to a 7-5 victory. The 23-year-old slugger is off to a tremendous start this season, with a .316/.443/.684 batting line, seven home runs, and 25 RBI in 23 games. He's on pace for 49 homers and 176 RBI.
Apr 30 - 6:51 PM

Adam Duvall finished 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Reds' comeback victory over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Duvall doubled and scored the Reds' first run of the afternoon in the top of the sixth before cranking a two-run double in the Reds' game-tying three-run seventh. Duvall now has 17 RBI and 16 runs scored in 23 games this season, along with seven homers, two stolen bases, and an .842 OPS. He's on his way to matching the tremendous fantasy production from his breakout 2016.
Apr 30 - 6:08 PM

Dallas Keuchel tossed 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball as the Astros rolled to a 7-2 victory on Sunday.

Keuchel gave up just three hits and two walks while striking out nine in yet another dominant performance. He was working on a shutout until Ryon Healy hit a soft RBI single to center field in the top of the eighth. Keuchel moved to 5-0 with the win and boasts a 1.21 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 36/11 K/BB ratio through 44 2/3 innings (six starts) this season. A road start against the Angels is next for the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner.
Apr 30 - 5:44 PM

Anthony Rendon went 6-for-6 with three homers and 10 RBI as the Nationals destroyed the Mets 23-5 on Sunday.

Rendon was quiet during the Nationals' outburst at Coors Field, but he made up for it today, raising his average from .221 to .278 and tripling his RBI total from five to 15. What was shaping up as an extremely disappointing month of April for him now looks more than respectable after just nine innings of play. Rendon's is the first 10-RBI game in the majors since the Angels' Garret Anderson had one Aug. 21, 2007 against the Yankees. He appears to be just the third player ever with six hits and 10 RBI in a game, joining Jim Bottomley (1924) and Walker Cooper (1949).
Apr 30 - 5:32 PM

Domingo Santana slugged two home runs Sunday in the Brewers' 4-3 defeat of the Braves.

Santana hit a solo shot off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the bottom of the fifth and then got to Folty again for a three-run blast in the bottom of the sixth. Those four runs were all Milwaukee would need in the afternoon victory. Santana is batting just .197 this season, even after Sunday's 2-for-4, but he has five home runs and 12 RBI along with three stolen bases. There's real fantasy upside here.
Apr 30 - 5:19 PM

Ryan Braun was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Braves due to tightness in his right trapezius muscle.

Braun always seems to be banged up and has battled minor injuries throughout his career, with 2017 being no exception. It sounds as though it's the type of injury that will be day-to-day, but look for an update on his status from the Brewers after Sunday's game.
Apr 30 - 4:29 PM

Noah Syndergaard will travel back to New York to undergo an MRI for a possible strained right lat.

Whether the biceps tendinitis Syndergaard dealt with this past week led to him overcompensating and leading to a new injury isn't known, but either way this is obviously not good news. The big right-hander had good velocity Sunday in his start versus the Nationals, but his command was off and he was eventually pulled in the second inning. He'll go on the disabled list even if the MRI doesn't reveal anything too serious, but obviously this has the potential to be something that keeps Syndergaard on the shelf for a while.
