CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Pirates' interest in A.J. Burnett is "mild at best."

He adds that their interest "might fall further" if Burnett intends to pick up his 2015 player option, which would be worth $12.75 million if he makes 32 starts this season. Burnett, of course, pitched for the Pirates from 2012-13 and they wanted to re-sign him over the winter but were outbid by the Phillies. Heyman also says that the Orioles' interest in Burnett "doesn't seem keen, either." The righty holds a good-but-not-great 3.86 ERA in 2014 and it appears his market might be drying up.

Trea Turner hit for the cycle in Tuesday's game at Colorado, finishing with four runs scored and a career-high seven RBI.

The seven RBI are tied for second-most in a single game in franchise history, and it was the first cycle for a Washington player since Cristian Guzman accomplished the feat Aug. 28, 2008. The former standout at North Carolina State has hit safely in each of his past four starts since returning from the 10-day disabled list.

Brandon Crawford has been diagnosed with a right groin strain.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the club is hoping to get an MRI before Crawford goes on bereavement leave Wednesday. This could turn into a 10-day disabled list stint for the 30-year-old shortstop, who injured his groin Tuesday on an eighth-inning single against the Dodgers. He'll be away from the Giants through Friday at least to attend funeral services for his sister-in-law. Eduardo Nunez took over at shortstop on Tuesday night.

Eric Thames delivered his 11th homer Tuesday off the Reds' Robert Stephenson.

Eight of those homers have come versus Cincinnati pitching. Thames also worked his 14th walk in 20 games tonight before telling reporters after the game that he's got "plenty of urine and blood" to go around for MLB's drug testers. He has been tested three times since spring training, including a blood and urine test Tuesday. The guy is for real.

Felix Hernandez is headed back to Seattle to have his right shoulder examined.

Hernandez experienced shoulder fatigue -- what manager Scott Servais called "dead arm" -- during his ugly two-inning start Tuesday night at Detroit's Comerica Park. Seattle wound up losing the game 19-9 and Hernandez watched his ERA balloon to 4.73 after surrendering four earned runs. There might not be an update on his status until Thursday. Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times says Felix "left the clubhouse quickly" on Tuesday and "was visibly upset."

Jose Altuve (head) said he expects to play Wednesday.

Altuve was removed from Tuesday's game against the Indians after taking a blow to the head in an ugly outfield collision with Teoscar Hernandez, but he has already been cleared of a concussion. "Most likely -- I think we still have to wait until tomorrow, but I have a good chance to play tomorrow," the star second baseman told reporters late Tuesday.

Dallas Keuchel went the distance Tuesday, holding the Indians to two runs in a 4-2 victory.

It's the first time this season that Keuchel has allowed more than one run in a start, but something tells us he'll be OK with this effort. Both runs he allowed came on solo homers from Austin Jackson and Michael Brantley, and he should have allowed a third to Jason Kipnis if not for Josh Reddick scaling the wall to pull it back. Keuchel, who threw 122 pitches Tuesday, will take a 1.22 ERA into this weekend's outing versus the A's. He's back in Cy Young form.

Kendall Graveman (shoulder) will return to the A's rotation Thursday in Anaheim.

Graveman got the go-ahead after making it through a 42-pitch bullpen session on Monday without issue. The 26-year-old right-hander wound up missing just one turn and will return Thursday to a 2-0 record, 2.00 ERA, and 1.00 WHIP through three starts covering 18 innings. With the velocity spike he's shown this season, Graveman deserves to be owned in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Apr 25 - 8:22 PM

Mitch Haniger has been diagnosed with a strained oblique.

The injury is sure to put him on the 10-day disabled list, and it could keep him out through mid-May. Haniger suffered the oblique strain, typically a 3-4 week injury, while tallying his second hit of the night Tuesday against the Tigers. He's batting .338/.442/.600 this year. It's more terrible news for the last-place Mariners, who put Danny Valencia in right field Tuesday when Haniger exited.
Apr 25 - 8:17 PM

Madison Bumgarner will not require surgery on his injured left shoulder.

That's the initial evaluation anyway, after a round of tests overseen by Dr. Kenneth Akizuki. Bumgarner is hoping to begin rehab activities in 4-5 days but probably won't be ready to resume throwing off a mound for two months. The ace left-hander suffered a strained AC joint and a rib cage bruise last Thursday in a dirt-bike accident.
Apr 25 - 8:00 PM

Dodgers purchased the contract of OF/1B Cody Bellinger from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Bellinger is starting in left field and batting eighth in his MLB debut Tuesday night against Giants left-hander Ty Blach. The 21-year-old has put up huge offensive numbers at multiple levels of the minor leagues and immediately deserves a look in deeper mixed fantasy leagues with Rob Segedin (toe), Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring), and Joc Pederson (groin) all currently sidelined. Bellinger could carve out a big role if he gets off to a hot start.
Apr 25 - 7:00 PM

Jorge Soler (oblique) went 1-for-4 with a home run and a walk Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

He now has two home runs in five rehab games, but Royals manager Ned Yost said Tuesday that no decision has been made about Soler's activation date. The 25-year-old outfielder landed on the disabled list at the end of spring training with a strained left oblique. He should join Kansas City's lineup at some point in the next week.
