The Dodgers are saying Alexander Guerrero will be part of an open competition in spring training for the second base job, per ESPN Los Angeles' Mark Saxon.

Saxon said the team is so concerned about Guerrero's fielding abilities that they're trying to convince Michael Young to put off retirement and return as the team's stopgap second baseman. Either way, it seems that the 27-year-old will have to earn his playing time with a strong spring. If not, Saxon suggests Guerrero may even find himself in the minor leagues to start the season. The Dodgers signed Guerrero to a four-year, $28 million contract in October.

Clayton Kershaw tossed seven scoreless innings to pick up the win on Tuesday versus the Braves.

As strange as it sounds, Tuesday's outing was Kershaw's first in which he held the opposition scoreless. Kershaw scattered only four hits while striking out 10 and issuing no walks. He entered the game with a .347 BABIP and a 4.32 ERA, suggesting some of his struggles may just be bad luck. Kershaw's ERA is down to 3.86 with a 1.16 WHIP and an 83/16 K/BB ratio over 65 1/3 innings. The lefty goes up against the Rockies at Coors Field in his next start.

Brandon Belt hit his fifth home run of the season to help the Giants best the Brewers 6-3 on Tuesday.

Prince Fielder stayed red hot Tuesday, finishing 3-for-5 with a three-run homer as the Rangers edged the Indians 4-3.

Fielder is in the midst of an otherworldly stretch, as he's now had five straight multi-hit games -- including four consecutive games with three hits -- and collected five home runs, 15 RBI and nine runs scored in that span. Fielder leads the league in batting average (.371) and RBI (38), and he's among the league leaders in a number of other categories. It's been quite a comeback year for the 31-year-old.

Kyle Seager hit two huge home runs Tuesday, including a grand slam, and had six RBI in the Mariners' 7-6 win over the Rays in 10 innings.

Seager had an RBI single in the first inning, but that was just the beginning. The third baseman hit a grand slam in the eighth and blasted a game-winning solo homer in the 10th. Seager has nine homers and 29 RBI to go with a .281/.328/.497 line.

Randal Grichuk finished 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the Cardinals' 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Grichuk took an Archie Bradley pitch out to right field in the second inning for a solo shot, his second home run of the season. Grichuk also had an RBI single and stole his first base of the season in the win. He's hitting .292/.320/.604 in 17 games on the year.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that he has a "high level" of concern about Matt Adams's right quad injury and a disabled list move is expected.

Adams strained his quad while rounding first base on a double in the fifth inning of Tuesday's game. It sounds like he could require a lengthy stay on the disabled list, although more won't be known until he presumably undergoes an MRI. Mark Reynolds is in line to play regularly at first base while Adams is out, and the team could bring up Xavier Scruggs from Triple-A.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and an RBI ground out in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Abreu gave the White Sox a short-lived 5-3 lead with a three-run home run to left field off of R.A. Dickey. He added an RBI ground out in the middle of a three-run eighth inning as well. The White Sox entered Tuesday's game averaging only 3.5 runs per game, the worst in the American League. But it's not Abreu's fault as he has eight home runs, 27 RBI, and a .274/.339/.476 triple-slash line.
May 26 - 10:55 PM

Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with three doubles and five RBI as the Blue Jays won in a slugfest against the White Sox.

Bautista gave the Jays a 3-2 lead in the third inning with a two-run ground-rule double. He added a two-run double in the fifth to give the Jays a 6-5 lead, then tacked on one more run with his third double in the seventh to make it a 7-6 game. Bautista has knocked in at least one run in nine of his last 11 games and is now batting .231/.373/.485 with seven home runs and 30 RBI on the season.

Josh Donaldson homered twice on Tuesday, one of which was a walk-off three-run blast in the ninth inning, leading the Blue Jays past the White Sox on Tuesday.

Donaldson, batting second, put the Jays on top early with a solo home run in the first inning. It was a see-saw game, but Donaldson put an end to it when he belted a three-run home run to the opposite field against closer David Robertson. Donaldson finished the night 4-for-4 with a walk and five RBI. On the season, he is hitting .315/.379/.582 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI.

Wilmer Flores knocked in the tying and game-winning runs as the Mets walked off winners in 10 innings versus the Phillies on Tuesday.

Flores, who went 1-for-4 on the night, tied the game at 4-4 with an eighth-inning sacrifice fly against Ken Giles. In the 10th inning, he came to the plate with runners on the corners and two out. He lifted an Elvis Araujo offering into left field to bring in the winning run. Flores has hit for decent power but otherwise has been lackluster, batting .252/.284/.429 with seven home runs and 21 RBI.

Marlon Byrd scored the game-winning run and had both of the Reds' runs in their 2-1, walk-off victory over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Byrd singled and scored in the second inning before leading off the bottom of the ninth with a walk. He was sacrificed into scoring position and Skip Schumaker's RBI double plated Byrd as the winning run. Byrd's rate stats leave something to be desired, but he's still got 10 homers, 25 RBI and 20 runs scored on the year.
