Mark Reynolds slugged two home runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 5-1 defeat of the visiting Reds.

Reynolds' offensive outburst helped Milwaukee to a big three-game sweep of Cincinnati. He hit a two-run bomb in the bottom of the sixth inning and then smacked a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. The first baseman is batting just .207 this year, but he now has 16 home runs.

Clay Buchholz pitched brilliantly on Tuesday, racking up eight scoreless innings in a win over the Twins.

Buchholz scattered three hits (all singles) and a pair of walks while striking out eight. It's the latest in what has been an elite stretch of pitching. In his last five starts, Buchholz has a 1.95 ERA and a 30/8 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Overall, he's lowered his ERA to 3.82 with a 1.21 WHIP and a 70/18 K/BB ratio over 68 1/3 innings. He matches up with the Athletics at home in his next outing.

Ricky Nolasco (ankle) is not expected to make his next scheduled start on Friday against the Brewers.

Nolasco is dealing with a right ankle impingement, an ailment that forced him from Sunday's outing. An MRI revealed no structural damage and he's hoping to avoid a disabled list stint, but he won't be ready Friday. More will be known about the right-hander's status when he throws a bullpen session Thursday. J.R. Graham is an option to make a spot start Friday.

Lucas Duda (knee) is back in the Mets' lineup Tuesday.

Duda was hit in the right knee by a pitch Sunday and was too stiff to start Monday. He's back out there Tuesday, though, against Ian Kennedy and the Padres.
Jun 2 - 6:45 PM

Jorge Soler will undergo an MRI Tuesday on his ailing ankle.

The results are expected on Wednesday. Soler hurt the ankle when he landed awkwardly running to first base on Monday night. The Cubs haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list.
Jun 2 - 6:24 PM

Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.

Alonso missed nearly four weeks of action with a right shoulder injury, but he played in six rehab games with no issues. The first baseman was off to a .333/.427/.437 start this season before going on the DL.
Jun 2 - 6:07 PM

Adam Lind (back) is back in the Brewers' lineup Tuesday.

Lind didn't start the last two games due to a back issues, although he had a pinch-hit single on Monday. He has a history of back problems but it appears this was just a minor bump in the road.
Jun 2 - 6:04 PM

Edwin Encarnacion is being bothered by leg discomfort.

There aren't any specifics available at this time. Encarnacion was limited to pinch-hitting duties in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals and is he out of the starting lineup for the nightcap. We'd expect the Blue Jays to have an update soon.
Jun 2 - 5:39 PM

Mariners recalled LHP Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma.

Montgomery will make his major league debut Tuesday at home against the Yankees and could be up for an extended period if the outing goes well. The 25-year-old left-hander has lost his top-prospect status, but he's put up a decent 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this season at the Triple-A level. There may be some value here for deep mixed-leaguers.
Jun 2 - 5:16 PM

Scott Kazmir (shoulder) has been cleared to return to the A's rotation Friday in Boston.

Kazmir made it through a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday without issue and he said he felt "great" after a followup game of catch Tuesday. The left-hander had to make an early exit from his start last Wednesday against the Tigers after experiencing shoulder tightness, but an MRI taken last Thursday showed no major issues.
Jun 2 - 5:12 PM

Khris Davis underwent scheduled surgery Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said the surgery "went well" and guessed that Davis would only miss 4-6 weeks. Gerardo Parra will serve as the primary left fielder for Milwaukee until early-to-mid July.
Jun 2 - 4:55 PM

Denard Span (knee) is not in the lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

Span also sat out the first game. He made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Reds after experiencing renewed discomfort in his right knee and apparently hasn't felt much improvement. But an MRI showed no structural damage, so Span should be able to avoid another disabled list stint. Michael Taylor is playing center field on Tuesday night.
