Matt Moore (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery next week.

Moore tested out his elbow Monday with some throwing but evidently was still experiencing soreness. The left-hander was diagnosed last week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament, so it makes sense to go ahead and have the operation now rather than try rest and rehab, which almost never works. Moore figures to miss the beginning of the 2015 campaign.

Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 with his eighth homer and 15th double to lead the Nationals past the Phillies 4-3 on Monday.

Murphy has been on fire since day one this year, and he shows no signs of slowing down. He's already more than half way to his career high of 14 homers, and his 1.047 OPS is 278 points higher than his career mark of .769 with the Mets.

Bryce Harper is day-to-day with a right knee contusion.

Harper was forced to exit Monday's game against the Phillies after he was hit in the right knee by a pitch from Jeremy Hellickson. It doesn't sound like a major concern, but the Nationals will see how he feels on Tuesday.

Jeff Locke pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game as the Pirates drubbed the Marlins 10-0 on Monday.

Locke hadn't completed any of his previous 100 major league starts. The left-hander was looking like the obvious choice to be bounced from the Pirates rotation when the team promoted Jameson Taillon or Tyler Glasnow, but this certainly complicates things a bit. He lowered his ERA from 5.08 to 4.33 tonight. That's better than what Jon Niese (4.42), Francisco Liriano (4.63) or Juan Nicasio (4.79 (or 4.21 if Andrew McCutchen hadn't whined about an error) have done.

Ian Desmond doubled and ripped a two-run homer in Monday's victory over the Indians.

Desmond's two-run shot two batters into the game proved to be a hint at what was to come for the Rangers' offense, as they pounded out nine runs over the first four innings. The shortstop-turned-left-fielder-turned-center-fielder has been a beast in May, sporting a .345/.371/.527 batting line with three home runs, 18 RBI and six stolen bases.

Marlon Byrd went 4-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

The Indians had a couple longballs in this one, but unfortunately for them they were pretty meaningless. After the Rangers jumped out to a 9-0 lead after the top of the fourth, Mike Napoli smashed a long solo shot in the sixth and Byrd added a blast to left in the seventh. Byrd will turn 39 in August but has remained pretty productive, hitting .270/.328/.459 with five homers and 19 RBI.

Collin McHugh went the distance against the Diamondbacks on Monday allowing three runs while striking out eight in an 8-3 victory.

It wasn't the prettiest outing as far as complete games go, as McHugh served up a couple home runs among the three runs he yielded. However, he also walked just one to go along with his eight punchouts and at Chase Field it was certainly an impressive effort. It's baby steps, but McHugh boasts a 26/3 K/BB ratio over his last 21 1/3 innings. He faces the A's at home this weekend.
May 30 - 8:28 PM

Adam Duvall had his first career two-homer day in Monday's win over the Rockies.

There were seven home runs hit on the day, which is no surprise in a matchup of two mediocre starters at Coors Field. Both of Duvall's longballs went to the opposite field, as he took Chad Bettis deep with a two-run shot in the fourth and then added a solo blast off of Jake McGee in the ninth. Duvall has now homered 11 times this month and 13 times on the season, emerging as a legitimate power bat for the Reds.
May 30 - 8:00 PM

Joey Votto smashed career home run No. 200 in Monday's slugfest victory over the Rockies.

Votto took Jason Motte deep in the seventh inning with a shot to right field. He also nearly had a grand slam in previous at-bat, as a drive in the fourth inning landed on the warning track and then bounced over the fence for a two-RBI, ground-rule double. Votto's production has been way down this season, as he's sporting a .213/.332/.391 batting line. However, he's hit safely in five out of his last six contests and has a couple dingers over that stretch.
May 30 - 7:57 PM

Carlos Gonzalez doubled and smacked a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Reds.

Both hits were to center field and they were both lasers, with the longball coming in the ninth inning off of Reds closer Tony Cingrani. Gonzalez also walked twice on the day. He has been inconsistent this season, sandwiching a couple homer binges around the longest homerless drought of his career. The good news is CarGo is in the midst of one of the good streaks, as he's gone deep in three straight and four out of his last five.
May 30 - 7:48 PM

Nate Karns struck out six while allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings in Monday's 9-3 win over the Padres.

Karns has pitched well overall this season but has had trouble going deep into games, as he's failed to go six frames in half of his starts. That wasn't the case here, though, as he also encouragingly only walked one batter. The 28-year-old finishes his first two months with a 3.43 ERA, a strikeout per inning and a 5-1 record. He'll try to keep it going this weekend in Texas.
May 30 - 7:43 PM

Twins placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Santana injured his left hamstring during Monday's game and will require an extended absence. The Twins will call up Byron Buxton to take his place on the active roster.
