Jordy Mercer hit a walkoff RBI double Saturday in the Pirates' 3-2 11-inning win over the Rockies.

It was his only hit of the game, but it was obviously a big one. Mercer's double scored Neil Walker, who sent the game to extras with a game-tying RBI single in the bottom of the eighth. Mercer is batting just .250/.290/.360 in 89 games this season for Pittsburgh.

Tim Beckham went 3-for-5 and drilled two solo home runs but the Rays still lost to the Orioles on Wednesday.

He homered in the third and again in the fifth to draw the Rays within a run, but they ultimately fell in extra innings. Beckham has been serving as the starting shortstop since the season began in the absence of the injured Matt Duffy. Beckham has hit well enough that there could be a position battle when Duffy returns to action. Beckham is hitting .280/.299/.493 with four homers, 10 runs scored and eight RBI in 78 plate appearances.

James Paxton notched nine punchouts and shut out the Tigers for seven innings to earn an 8-0 victory on Wednesday.

He gave up just four hits and one walk in the dominant effort. Paxton has been pitching like this all month, registering a cool 1.39 ERA with three wins and no losses through his first five starts. He has 39 strikeouts and six walks in 32 1/3 innings. Barring any rainouts along the way, he lines up for two starts next week in a dream scoring period for his owners.

According to Tommy Stoke of FanRag Sports, Shelby Miller is dealing with a ligament issue in his right elbow and could need Tommy John surgery.

That would explain why Miller is sending his MRI to Dr. James Andrews for a third opinion. Miller had been hoping for a bounce-back season after struggling to a 6.15 ERA in his first year with Arizona but obviously his elbow injury has thrown a wrench in those plans. Zack Godley was called up from Triple-A Reno to take Miller's spot in Arizona's starting rotation.

Maikel Franco went 3-for-4 and crushed a grand slam in Wednesday's 7-4 defeat of the Marlins.

The Phillies trailed 2-0 in the third inning when Franco came to the plate with the bases juiced. He smoked a Wei-Yin Chen offering over the center field wall for his second grand slam of the season. Franco has a marvelous 20 RBI already, but hasn't been very good other than that. He has a woeful .203/.268/.392 slash line with three home runs and six runs scored.

Brandon Phillips left Wednesday's game against the Mets with a strained left groin.

He singled in his only at-bat before Jace Peterson replaced him at second base to begin the bottom half of the second inning. The Braves are calling him day-to-day, though strained groins often lead to stints on the disabled list. Phillips is off to an outstanding start, batting .352 with two homers, nine RBI and five steals through his first 19 games.

Jose Abreu (hip, groin) said he expects to play Friday against the Tigers.

Abreu left Wednesday's game against Kansas City with a flexor strain in his right hip but said he mostly feels pain in his upper groin. Either way, he should be ready to roll after the White Sox's off day on Thursday. Abreu has plated at least 100 runs in each of the last three seasons. He'll have to pick up the pace if he wants to make it four straight (.253, 0 HR, 8 RBI in 75 at-bats).

Shelby Miller (elbow) sent his MRI results to Dr. James Andrews.

Miller has already been evaluated by team doctors as well as Dr. Neal ElAttrache, so technically he's getting a third opinion. Andrews is usually the doctor players see before getting Tommy John surgery, so obviously Miller is dealing with more than a garden variety elbow injury. Even if Miller gets good news from Andrews, we wouldn't expect to see him on a big league mound anytime soon. It's been one disaster after another for Miller since joining the Diamondbacks in 2016.

Cody Bellinger will bat leadoff Wednesday against the Giants.

Talk about being thrown into the fire. In just his second MLB game, Bellinger will handle leadoff duties against perennial Cy Young contender Johnny Cueto. The talented 21-year-old earned his first big league hit off Neil Ramirez in the ninth inning of Tuesday night's 2-1 victory. SS Corey Seager, 3B Justin Turner, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, C Yasmani Grandal, RF Yasiel Puig, 2B Chase Utley, OF Andrew Toles and P Alex Wood round out the rest of the Dodgers' starting lineup.

Adrian Beltre (calf) is not progressing as quickly the Rangers had hoped.

"It's getting better but not where we expect it to be," said manager Jeff Banister. "We're still in the rehab mode." The Rangers had been hoping to have Beltre back by the end of April but obviously that ship has already sailed. According to MLB.com's TR Sullivan, "May is starting to look murky too." Power-hitting Joey Gallo will continue to man the hot corner in Beltre's absence.

Giants placed OF Denard Span on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right shoulder.

He hasn't played since crashing into the outfield wall on Saturday and obviously the Giants felt he needed a few more days. Span's stint on the disabled list will likely be a short one. Drew Stubbs and Gorkys Hernandez will share time in center field during his absence.
Apr 26 - 6:28 PM

Nationals placed RHP Koda Glover on the 10-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

Matt Grace was called up from Triple-A Syracuse in the corresponding roster move. Glover said he felt pain on the first pitch of his outing Tuesday against the Rockies but expects to return after the minimum 10 days. The right-hander suffered a torn labrum last season, so he has a history of hip trouble. Shawn Kelley will have the ninth inning all to himself in Glover's absence.
