Corey Kluber brought a perfect game into the seventh inning, ultimately pitching nine innings of one-run (unearned) ball, but the Indians lost in 14 innings to the Royals on Thursday.

Kluber's dance with a perfect game ended with one out in the seventh inning when Omar Infante singled on a line drive to center field. Kluber lost his shutout in the eighth when a poor defensive play by Ryan Raburn allowed Mike Moustakas to round the bases on a Little League home run (scored a double and a two-base error). Kluber went nine innings but the Indians needed 14 before they were dispatched. On the night, Kluber allowed two hits, walked none, and struck out 10. The right-hander now has a 2.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and a 162/33 K/BB ratio. Kluber will face the Mariners at home next week.

Nolan Arenado blasted his 11th home run of the season on Sunday, powering the Rockies to a 6-3 victory over the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Arenado got the Rockies on the board with an RBI single as part of a three-run rally in the fourth inning, then tagged Randall Delgado for a two-run bomb in the seventh inning to put the game on ice. He's squarely in the conversation for early-season MVP honors in the National League, slashing .305/.371/.695 with 11 homers and 25 RBI while playing a Gold Glove caliber third base.

Max Scherzer dominated the Cardinals over seven scoreless innings on Sunday afternoon.

Scherzer yielded just four hits -- all singles -- and zero walks. It was vintage form out of the 31-year-old right-hander, who's had more rough outings than usual in 2016. He now stands 3-1 on the season with a 3.55 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 39/12 K/BB ratio in 38 innings. A road start against the Cubs is next.

Chris Carter was locked in during Sunday's 14-5 obliteration of the Marlins, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of homers, three RBI and three runs scored.

Not only did Carter homer twice, he also hit his 10th double of the season. The streaky slugger went yard with a two-run shot in the third inning and followed that up with a solo dinger just an inning later. After being non-tendered by the Astros over the winter, Carter is slashing a silly .278/.355/.671 with seven homers and 18 RBI for the Brew Crew. Fantasy owners should luxuriate in this hot stretch, because winter is coming. It always does with Carter.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that Tim Lincecum will finally hold his long-awaited showcase for interested teams on Friday in Scottsdale, Arizona.

At least 20 teams have expressed interest in attending the showcase at one point or another to see what the two-time National League Cy Young award winner has left in the tank. The 31-year-old has reportedly been throwing in the 90-91 mph range. With so many teams starved for rotation help, he shouldn't have much difficulty landing a job.

Nick Castellanos went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and four total RBI in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Twins.

The Twins actually held a 5-2 lead entering the sixth inning (such things do occur on occasion), at which point Castellanos cracked a three-run home run off starter Ricky Nolasco to tie the game at 5-5. Jarrod Saltalamacchia would provide the go-ahead RBI in the eighth inning as the Tigers improved to 14-10. For his part, Castellanos is hitting a cool .361/.371/.590 with four homers, 18 RBI and five doubles over 83 at-bats. He has accumulated eight hits over his last four games, with homers in two of his last three.

Yu Darvish (elbow) looked electric in his first minor league rehab start, striking out a pair over two hitless innings at Double-A Frisco.

Darvish walked one in the outing, throwing a total of 32 pitches. He had good life on his fastball, hitting as high as 97 mph on the radar gun, and also was able to command his sharp breaking ball. He's on track for a return to the Rangers rotation at some point in May.

Brett Lawrie hit a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, the third consecutive game in which he has gone deep.

Lawrie smacked a solo home run off the soon-to-be-demolished Ubaldo Jimenez in the fourth inning. The tater was his fourth of the season. Three of the four dingers came in this weekend's series against the Orioles. In addition to that quartet of blasts, he has driven in 10 runs, scored 15 and hit to a triple-slash of .290/.377/.505. The 26-year-old second baseman has a chance to surpass the career-best 16 homers he launched in 2015.
May 1 - 5:08 PM

Chris Sale lacked his usual pinpoint control in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, walking four while allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings.

Sale limited the damage on the scoreboard, but the four walks were wildly out of character for him. In his previous five starts combined (38 innings), he had handed out just five free passes. On the non-walk side of the equation, the ace southpaw scattered five hits while striking out six. Even a shaky Chris Sale start is not without its rewards. For the season, he holds a 1.66 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 38/9 K/BB ratio. After surrendering six runs over his first two starts, he has yielded just three (two earned) over his last four outings. A home showdown with the Twins shows next on his schedule.

Angel Pagan is listed as day-to-day after leaving Sunday's game against the Mets with a mild hamstring strain.

He's expected to miss at least the next 2-to-3 days. Pagan suffered the injury while trying to stretch a single into a double during the seventh inning of Sunday's contest. Look for Gregor Blanco to see additional playing time in his absence.
May 1 - 4:50 PM

Madison Bumgarner fired six shutout innings in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Mets.

Nice work by Bumgarner, who scattered six hits, struck out seven and walked three over the course of his time on the mound. While he has pitched inconsistently in places through his first six starts, Mad-Bum still holds a 3.03 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45/13 K/BB ratio. If he can move that WHIP closer to his career mark of 1.12, it would almost certainly help to ease some of the ups and downs he has experienced thus far. A home start against the Rockies shows next on his schedule.
May 1 - 4:47 PM

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rays.

Edwin Encarnacion's RBI ground out in the eighth inning snapped a 1-1 tie, but it was Tulowitzki who truly salted the game away. His three-run homer off reliever Alex Colome later in the frame took the edge off what had been a tense pitcher's duel between Marcus Stroman and Jake Odorizzi. While Sunday's three-run dinger was nice, we are still waiting for Tulo to lock into any sort of a consistent groove. His .172/.291/.356 slugging percentage is troubling for obvious reasons, but he makes for a prime buy-low candidate if owners are beginning to grow skittish.
