Neftali Feliz was clocked in the 90-92 mph range during his Cactus League debut Sunday.

Feliz allowed three hits -- including a two-run homer -- in his inning of work. The poor showing came after Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reported that Feliz's mechanics have been "out of whack" and he's "not getting his arm extended enough to max out the velocity." However, the reliever said he's not worried. "It’s early in spring training," Feliz said Monday. "I’m not trying to throw my hardest yet. I’m just building up arm strength. My velocity is coming soon." It's probably too early to get overly concerned about Feliz, but Joakim Soria had a clean inning Sunday and offers a fine alternative should the Rangers decide Feliz isn't ready to reclaim his old closer role.

Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 23, with a strained left oblique.

Manager Craig Counsell expressed confidence on Saturday that Peralta would be able to make his next start, but now the club is saying the right-hander will be sidelined for at least four weeks. It's not clear at this point who will assume Peralta's spot in the rotation. David Goforth will be promoted prior to Tuesday's game to take his roster spot.

Yasmani Grandal has passed all concussions tests given to him by the Dodgers' medical staff.

He'll play in three rehab games with Triple-A Oklahoma City beginning on Tuesday -- serving as the designated hitter -- before being activated on Saturday when first eligible. Grandal sports a nice .291/.403/.466 batting line with four homers and 17 RBI for the Dodgers this season.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Monday that he doesn't expect Johnny Cueto (elbow) to miss any more starts.

Cueto had to be scratched from an outing Sunday due to a stiff pitching elbow, but the club doesn't consider the ailment to be serious. He'll throw a bullpen session in a few days and be cleared to rejoin the rotation presumably this weekend against the Nationals.

Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Yankees torched the Royals 14-1 on Memorial Day.

Headley kicked off the rout with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, then Brian McCann and Brett Gardner both followed with three-run shots in what became an eight-run opening frame. Stephen Drew added another three-run homer in the bottom of the second, finally driving Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie from the game. Headley also had an infield single and an RBI double. He's batting .255/.309/.416 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 44 games this season.

Bartolo Colon held the Phillies to three runs in six innings Monday in the Mets' 6-3 victory.

Colon walked two and gave up six hits, but only one of those hits -- a Freddy Galvis double -- went for extra bases. Colon fanned six Philadelphia hitters and is now 7-3 with a 4.82 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 52/5 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings this season. The big man remains a strong matchup-to-matchup fantasy starter, and he has a pretty good one at home against the Rockies on Sunday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter expects J.J. Hardy (back) to be in the lineup on Tuesday.

Hardy dealt with a tight back throughout Monday's game before finally exiting in the eighth inning. The shortstop thinks he just slept funny, though, and is expected to be fine.
May 25 - 4:27 PM

Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Rockies' 5-4 win over the Reds on Monday.

Arenado laced an RBI single in the top of the first inning, reached on an infield single in the top of the second, slugged a solo home run in the top of the fourth, and then drove in the go-ahead run for the Rockies with a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth. Arenado also had a huge day on Sunday against the Giants and is emerging out of his mid-May slump with bang after bang.
May 25 - 4:17 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) expects to return Tuesday.

Cabrera is out of the Rays' starting lineup on Monday night against the Mariners after leaving Sunday's game with a groin strain. The strain is of the minor variety.
May 25 - 4:01 PM

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup again on Monday.

Bautista also sat out Sunday after getting a cortisone injection in his ailing right shoulder. He's been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a month, but the Blue Jays are expected to keep the slugger active and continue using him as their primary designated hitter. Edwin Encarnacion is at DH on Monday against the White Sox and Justin Smoak is at first base.
May 25 - 3:37 PM

Pirates activated RHP Charlie Morton from the 15-day disabled list.

Morton will make his 2015 debut for the Pirates on Monday night against the Marlins. He posted very good numbers on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment and could be worth a shot in some standard mixed fantasy leagues.
May 25 - 3:16 PM

Steven Souza (wrist) is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Monday evening against the Mariners.

Souza suffered a sprained left wrist Sunday in a nasty collision at home plate with A's catcher Stephen Vogt and is considered day-to-day for now. Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and Jake Elmore is in left field in Monday's series opener versus Seattle.
