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.

Justin Upton left Saturday's game against the Yankees with an undisclosed injury.

Chris Young pinch-hit for Upton in the sixth inning of a 6-4 game, so something is afoot. Upton had been hit by a Sonny Gray pitch earlier in the game. The Angels should provide an update soon.

Tim Anderson yanked two longballs, drove in four runs and scored three times during Saturday's 8-4 win over the Tigers.

He also made three errors in the contest but his fantasy owners don't care one bit. He popped a solo dinger off starter Francisco Liriano in the fifth inning, then topped that by belting a three-run jack off reliever Louis Coleman in the next frame. He also walked and scored a third run in the ballgame. The leadoff batter has added considerable power this year and is stealing bases at a rapid clip as well. He has a .246 batting average with 10 homers, 18 RBI and 26 runs. He's swiped 11 bases and has been caught only once.

Christian Yelich went 3-for-5 with an RBI triple, a two-run double and three runs scored in Saturday's 17-6 romp over the Mets.

Yelich was one of three Brewers batters (joining Lorenzo Cain and Jesus Aguilar) to finish with three knocks. He raced around for an RBI triple in the fourth inning and added a two-run double in the fifth, putting him on Cycle Watch for the back half of the game. While he already had the most difficult leg of the cycle -- the triple -- under his belt relatively early, the former Marlins outfielder came up short of the fun statistical when he failed to find himself a home run by the end of the contest. He's played solid (if unspectacular) baseball this season, slashing .296/.365/.463 with five home runs and 23 RBI in 162 at-bats.

Jeimer Candelario slugged two home runs, drove in three runs and scored three times but his team fell to the White Sox on Saturday.

He drilled a two-run shot in the first inning and popped a solo dinger in his next at-bat. Unfortunately his exploits were one-upped by Tim Anderson on the other side of the field. Candelario has emerged as a strong fantasy asset for the first time in his career. He owns a .277 batting average with seven homers, 20 RBI and 24 runs scored in 39 games. He was recently activated from the disabled list after missing time with left wrist tendinitis.

Aaron Nola didn't allow a hit until the seventh inning, notched 10 strikeouts and yielded just one run in 6 2/3 innings versus the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He surrendered only one hit in the ballgame and that was an RBI-single by Russell Martin in the seventh inning. Unfortunately that one run was enough to deprive him of a win as the Phillies didn't take the lead until the eighth frame. The 24-year-old has quickly developed into one of the best pitchers in baseball. He has a 6-2 record with a 2.27 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 11 starts. He's accumulated 67 strikeouts against just 17 walks in 71 1/3 innings.

Clayton Kershaw (biceps) threw four innings in a simulated game Saturday.

After the outing, Kershaw declared himself ready to go in five days if the Dodgers need him. Whether the team feels the same way is unclear. Either way, the bottom line is Kershaw is close to a return. He's been on the disabled list since May 6 with left biceps tendinitis.
May 26 - 7:09 PM

Cubs placed RHP Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 23, with right triceps tightness.

Darvish owns a disappointing 4.95 ERA in eight starts, so perhaps this injury has contributed to some of his struggles. It's unclear when the triceps injury occurred, though, especially since his last outing was a positive one. Tyler Chatwood will make Darvish's scheduled Sunday start.
May 26 - 6:47 PM

X-rays taken on Dexter Fowler's right knee Saturday were negative, and he's considered day to day.

Fowler was hit in the knee by Trevor Williams in the fourth inning of Saturday's game, requiring assistance just to get off the field, but it appears he avoided any serious damage. The knee will likely still be sore Sunday, so the outfielder may require another day or two before he's back in the lineup. Tyler O'Neill should draw the starts while Fowler is out.
May 26 - 6:45 PM

Daniel Mengden was brilliant in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Diamondbacks, tossing a complete game shutout while allowing just two hits over his nine innings of work.

Beautiful, beautiful outing by Mengden. He struck out five without walking a batter on the afternoon and finished up having thrown an economic 102 pitches (72 strikes). He's been hot all season, but right now he's blazing, having fired off 16 shutout frames with just four hits allowed over his last two starts combined. On the macro scale, he has held the opposition to one or no runs in six of his last eight starts. The 25-year-old right-hander will try to make it three straight shutout performances when he carries his 2.85 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 43/6 K/BB ratio (66 1/3 frames) into a home start against the Rays next time out.
May 26 - 6:42 PM

Buster Posey is out of Saturday's lineup against the Cubs with right hip soreness.

He's just day to day and is available to pinch-hit, but it's an ailment nonetheless. He's in question for Sunday's game as well. Nick Hundley is getting the start post-dish Saturday, and would start Sunday's game if Posey is out for that one, too. Still, it's not considered serious.
May 26 - 5:52 PM

Alex Reyes (elbow) will make his season debut Wednesday against the Brewers, according to Craig Mish of Sirius XM.

Reyes made quick work of his four minor league rehab starts, striking out 44 over 23 scoreless innings, and it was only a question of when, not if, he'd get into a major league game in the coming days. With Reyes back and in fine form, the Cardinals' rotation is suddenly stout with he, Jack Flaherty, Luke Weaver, Miles Mikolas and Michael Wacha and, when he returns, Carlos Martinez in tow. Reyes is surely owned in most competitive leagues, but if he's available, correct that immediately, especially now with firm plans known.
