Dodgers activated RHP Josh Beckett from the 15-day disabled list.

Beckett will return to the Dodgers' starting rotation on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh after sitting out for over two weeks with a hip injury. He still has a labrum tear and some cysts, but the veteran right-hander is going to try to pitch through the discomfort with the help of cortisone injections. Beckett boasts a 2.26 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 95/32 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings this season.

Howie Kendrick (oblique) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Kendrick received clearance to play in minor league games after taking outdoor batting practice on Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park. He's been out since April 15, so the Phillies will probably have him stay at Triple-A through the weekend to get properly tuned up. Kendrick was batting .333/.395/.487 over his first 43 plate appearances this season with the Phils.

Blue Jays placed OF Anthony Alford on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamate fracture.

That's an injury that usually requires 4-6 weeks of rest and rehab, sometimes much longer. Alford was just promoted to Toronto last Friday and collected his first major league hit -- a double -- on Tuesday night at Miller Park. Unfortunately for the last-place Blue Jays, the 22-year-old top outfield prospect will rack up service time while he is on the MLB disabled list.

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

Braun has gone 0-for-8 since returning May 21 from his left calf strain. Hernan Perez will start in left field and bat third on Wednesday versus Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman.

Joc Pederson was diagnosed with a neck strain following Tuesday night's outfield collision with Yasiel Puig.

Pederson also suffered some minor cuts on his forehead when he stumbled head-first into the right-center field wall, but he cleared MLB's concussion protocol and is expected to avoid the disabled list. That's excellent news given the violence of the collision. Pederson and Puig were both laughing in the clubhouse after the Dodgers' 13th-inning walkoff win over the Cardinals.

Christian Yelich exited Tuesday's game versus the Athletics with a right hip flexor injury.

It's unclear when Yelich suffered the injury, and it seems like he was lifted for precautionary reasons. The Marlins are listing him as day-to-day. Yelich had a single and scored a run in five plate appearances Tuesday before departing.

Matt Adams doubled, homered and hit a walk-off RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

Adams struck out three times and hit into a double play in his Braves debut Sunday, but he’s now gone deep each of the last two nights and delivered a walk-off RBI single off of Pirates closer Tony Watson on Tuesday. He’s batted fifth in each of his first three contests with his new club and is worth a corner infield spot in deeper fantasy leagues.

X-rays on Yonder Alonso's right wrist came back negative.

Alonso was lifted from Tuesday's game after being hit by a pitch, but he's managed to escape with just a bruise. He'll probably still be sore for a bit, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit out a game or two. Alonso just returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing time with a knee injury.

Jesse Hahn has been diagnosed with a right triceps strain.

Hahn suffered the injury in the third inning of his start Tuesday night against the Marlins and departed the game with a trainer. He was charged with five earned runs, lifting his season ERA from 3.02 to 3.81. A trip to the 10-day disabled list is probably coming.

Johnny Cueto told reporters late Tuesday that he has also developed a blister on his right index finger.

Add that to the blister on his right middle finger. Cueto said he will continue pitching through the discomfort in the hope of developing some calluses. The right-hander struck out eight batters but allowed four runs over six innings Tuesday in the Giants' loss to the Cubs. He has a disappointing 4.64 ERA for the year.

Michael Conforto went 3-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in the Mets' 9-3 victory over the Padres on Tuesday.

We thought the Mets made the wrong choice between Conforto and Jay Bruce this spring. It turns out that they're really fortunate to have both. Conforto now has 13 homers, 31 RBI and 34 runs scored in just 129 at-bats. HIs OPS stands at 1.138. The Mets' franchise record for OPS in a season is 1.024, established by Mike Piazza in 1998.
May 23 - 10:48 PM

Jon Lester went the distance and struck out a season-high 10 while limiting the Giants to one run in a 4-1 victory Tuesday.

The Giants managed to plate a run with a couple doubles in the fifth inning, but they picked up just four hits on the night and didn't draw any walks. Lester needed just 99 pitches to complete the masterpiece. It was his fourth complete game since joining the Cubs, with his last one coming also coming against the Giants last September. Lester will bring a 3.19 ERA into Los Angeles against the Dodgers on Sunday.
