Lucas Duda (hamstring) is back in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday against the Phillies.

Duda tweaked his right hamstring while running to second base Saturday. It obviously wasn't a serious issue. The 29-year-old first baseman is batting .293/.385/.478 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 44 games this season. Juan Lagares (shoulder) is also back Monday.

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' starting lineup Monday against the Reds.

Daniel Descalso will fill in at shortstop for the Rockies in the afternoon opener at Great American Ball Park. It's just a day of rest for Tulo, who's batting .235/.254/.294 through 71 plate appearances in May.

Jason Vargas (elbow) will start for the Royals on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.

Vargas missed around three weeks with a flexor strain in his left elbow. He'll be rushed back without making a rehab start because the Royals need him to cover Danny Duffy's spot. Duffy landed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with inflammation in his left shoulder.

Royals placed LHP Danny Duffy on the 15-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis.

Duffy reported feeling discomfort around his left shoulder last week and he's been rocked in his last few starts, so the Royals will give him some extended rest. Jason Vargas will be activated to start in his place Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium and Brandon Finnegan will join the Royals from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Mets manager Terry Collins suggested Sunday that Matt Harvey may be going through a period of "dead arm."

Harvey had the worst outing of his career Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Pirates, yielding seven earned runs in four innings. But he was dominant against the Cardinals in his start before and the "dead arm" thing is really just speculation from Collins anyway. "I have not talked to Matt yet, but it looks like he might be going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens," said the Mets' skipper. "He’s going to pitch Friday with five days rest, be ready to go."

Yovani Gallardo fired six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, allowing just four hits and a walk along the way.

Gallardo punched out six on the night. All of the damage against him came in the first inning on a two-out, two-run single by Brian McCann. He was able to settle in nicely afterwards though, keeping his team in the game and allowing the Rangers offense to come from behind. Now 4-6 on the season, he'll head into Friday's start against the Red Sox with a 4.13 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 40/16 K/BB ratio through 56 2/3 innings on the year.

Nolan Arenado went 4-for-5 and finished a double shy of the cycle as the Rockies thrashed the Giants 11-2 in Colorado on Sunday.

His three-run blast off Jean Machi capped off an eight-run uprising in the fourth inning that gave the Rockies an early 9-0 lead. Arenado scored three runs and plated four in the impressive performance. He's now hitting .275/.321/.516 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season.
May 24 - 9:30 PM

Chad Bettis was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Giants, allowing just two runs on six hits over his 8 1/3 innings.

Bettis racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. The right-hander carried a shutout into the ninth inning before finally allowing a pair of runs to score. He'll carry a 4.19 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 15/6 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Justin Upton had a monster game against the Dodgers on Sunday, hitting a first-inning grand slam, doubling and driving in six.

Upton had six RBI by the end of the second inning, clubbing a grand slam off Carlos Frias in the first inning, then smacking a two-run double in the second. These would be his only hits of the game, as he finished 2-for-4. Good on the Dodgers for closing that barn door after the horse was halfway to Mexico. The early MVP race in the National League is something to behold at the moment and Upton's certainly in the running with 12 homers, 35 RBI, 32 runs scored, nine steals and a .284/.343/.562 slash.
May 24 - 7:15 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Goldy almost single-handedly won the Diamondbacks the game, as he drove in three of the four runs. The other was driven in by starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson. Goldschmidt hit an RBI single in the first inning, then decided to up the excitement factor with a two-run homer in the third. Just another day at the office for the slugger, who is hitting a phenomenal .333/.438/.635 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 34 runs scored.
