Danny Santana left Wednesday's game with left knee soreness.

On first blush he appeared to injure his hamstring running to second base on a double, so knee soreness may be a small victory in that regard. We'll see how serious the injury might be after the game. For now, consider him day-to-day.

Matt Kemp had a big night at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a two-run double and a pair of RBI singles in Monday's win against the Rockies.

Kemp started the onslaught of runs with a two-run double, sparking a five-run first inning. He added RBI singles in the second and fifth innings as well as the Padres went on to score 14 runs. Kemp is making quite an impression with his new team, batting .368/.393/.561 with 13 RBI in 61 plate appearances to begin the season.

Jorge De La Rosa's season debut didn't go well, as the lefty was hammered for nine runs (seven earned) in two innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday.

De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the season with a groin injury. The Padres had no issues squaring him up, as the lefty yielded nine hits and a walk while striking out three. The nine runs were split up with five in the first inning and four in the second. De La Rosa will try to bounce back in his next start at home against the Giants.

Melky Cabrera delivered a walk-off RBI single to cap a four-run ninth inning in Monday's win against the Indians.

The White Sox had been shut out through eight innings, but rallied for four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against Indians closer Cody Allen. After Gordon Beckham had tied the game with an RBI single, Cabrera singled to left-center to send the White Sox home happy. He finished 1-for-4 with a walk on the evening. Cabrera has been slow out of the gate, batting .260/.275/.280 with only one extra-base hit.

Edinson Volquez was superb again on Monday, holding the Twins to one run over seven innings en route to a win.

The Twins' only run scored in the second inning on a throwing error by Eric Hosmer. Volquez allowed five hits and a walk while striking out five, giving him three excellent starts to begin the regular season following a miserable spring. He's 2-1 with a 1.99 ERA, a 0.75 WHIP, and a 17/3 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. Volquez will look to keep it going over the weekend on the road against the White Sox.

Kris Bryant knocked in three runs and walked to help lead the Cubs to a win over the Pirates on Monday.

Bryant finished 3-for-4 on the evening. He tied the game at one apiece with a fifth-inning RBI single. In the seventh, he brought in a pair of runs with a double and came around to score on two Pirate errors. Bryant has yet to sate fans' appetite for power with a home run, but has looked comfortable at the plate following his 0-for-4 performance in his major league debut.

Anthony DeSclafani held the Brewers scoreless over eight innings on Monday as the Reds won 6-1.

Though it was against the lowly Brewers, DeSclafani gave up only two hits and a walk while striking out five. DeSclafani was a popular sleeper pick coming into the season and he's already paying dividends. The right-hander owns a 0.86 ERA, a 0.62 WHIP, and a 16/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings. DeSclafani will attempt to remain undefeated in his next start at home versus the Cubs.
Apr 20 - 9:59 PM

Jonathan Lucroy will be placed on the disabled list after suffering a fractured toe on his left foot during Monday's game versus the Reds.

The injury occurred when Lucroy was struck by a foul tip. It's absolutely brutal news for the Brewers, who are 2-11, have Carlos Gomez (hamstring) and now Lucroy on the DL and might have Scooter Gennett (hand) join them. It's not clear at this point how long Lucroy might be sidelined. Martin Maldonado is now set to see the bulk of the action behind the plate for the Brewers, and Juan Centeno will be promoted to take Lucroy's roster spot.
Apr 20 - 9:56 PM

Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Reds topped the Brewers on Monday.

Votto's two-run home run in the seventh inning off of Wily Peralta padded the Reds' lead to 6-0 at the time. That marks five round-trippers on the season for the first baseman, who missed more than half of the 2014 season with a quad strain. Votto also owns a .375/.492/.771 triple-slash line with 12 RBI, making him by far the Reds' most productive hitter to start the season.
Apr 20 - 9:50 PM

Alfredo Simon limited the Yankees to one run over seven innings as the Tigers went on to a 2-1 victory on Monday.

Simon made one mistake on Monday evening, resulting in a Mark Teixeira solo home run in the second inning. The right-hander was in line for the loss until the Tigers rallied for two runs in the seventh. Simon gave up seven hits in total, issued no walks, and struck out seven. He's had back-to-back sterling outings, having shut out the Pirates over eight innings previously, and will take a 3-0 record with a 1.74 ERA into his next start against the Indians at home.
Apr 20 - 9:41 PM

Nolan Arenado was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sore left wrist.

It's not clear at this point how Arenado injured the wrist or how serious the setback might be. The Rockies should provide an update on the third baseman shortly. Rafael Ynoa took Arenado's spot at the hot corner.
