J.P. Arencibia had a ridiculous night at the plate Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI against the Yankees.

Arencibia connected on a solo shot in the fifth inning before blasting a grand slam in the seventh. His 12 total bases were a career high for a single game, and it was the eighth two-homer game of his career. The power has always been present, but his .183/.223/.404 line is what keeps him from being a fantasy option.

Salvador Perez was removed from Tuesday's game against the Indians after taking a foul tip off his mask.

The Royals are calling his exit precautionary, but you never know when you're dealing with a potential concussion. Perez will be re-evaluated on Wednesday.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed Tuesday that Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is tentatively 3-4 weeks away from a return.

Ellsbury has already been on the shelf for two weeks and evidently hasn't made much progress with his right knee sprain. The outfielder has yet to resume baseball activities and it's not known when he might be cleared to do so. Chris Young has been the biggest beneficiary of extra at-bats while Ellsbury has been sidelined.

An MRI on J.J. Hardy's left side came back negative.

The worry was that he might have a strained oblique, but that's not the case. Hardy is considered day-to-day for the time being.

Joey Gallo homered and finished 3-for-4 with four RBI in the Rangers' 15-2 trouncing of the White Sox on Tuesday.

Making his much-anticipated debut, Gallo didn't disappoint. After coming through with an two-run single in the first inning, Gallo displayed his prodigious power with a two-run home run in the third. He'll strike out a lot, but the 21-year-old also has exciting power that makes him fantasy relevant for however long he's in the majors.

Darin Ruf pinch-hit in the ninth inning and delivered a walk-off RBI single to right field, sending the Phillies to a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Odubel Herrera led off the inning with a double and was moved to third base on a sacrifice bunt by Carlos Ruiz. Manager Bryan Price opted to have lefty Tony Cingrani pitch to Ruf rather than walk him to face Ben Revere, and Ruf made him pay. He has not been much of a force at the plate this season, batting .225/.276/.393 with three home runs and 10 RBI, but even if he were, the Phillies' crowded outfield situation leaves him on the bench more often than not anyway.

Marlon Byrd has been diagnosed with a fractured right wrist.

Byrd suffered the break when he was hit by a Sean O'Sullivan offering during Tuesday's game. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but more is expected to be known after he re-evaluated Wednesday. Brennan Boesch and Skip Schumaker figures to handle left field while Byrd is on the shelf.

Jake Lamb (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

It's not clear how many rehab games he'll need, but Lamb has been sidelined for six weeks so it figures to be a handful. The 24-year-old has been on the disabled list since April 21 with a left foot injury. He was batting .414/.514/.690 with one homer and nine RBI through his first 10 games.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin confirmed that Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will be sent to the bullpen when activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Pomeranz was up-and-down in his time in the rotation before going on the DL, posting a 4.40 ERA over eight starts. Kendall Graveman has pitched pretty well since rejoining the rotation and the A's have decided to stick with him. Pomeranz can be dropped in shallower fantasy leagues.

Kevin Pillar went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI as the Blue Jays topped the Nationals on Tuesday.

It was a rare offensive outburst from the outfielder, who entered Tuesday's game with a .321 slugging percentage. His first home run was a solo shot to break up a 0-0 tie in the second inning. His second put the Jays up 4-3 in the sixth inning. Pillar is up to four home runs on the season with 21 RBI and a .234/.273/.360 triple-slash line.

Ben Zobrist walked and hit a grand slam in five plate appearances Tuesday, helping send the Athletics past the Tigers on Tuesday.

Zobrist sent an Angel Nesbitt offering to right field for a four-run four-bagger. He had been scuffling at the dish in six games since his activation from the disabled list. He's batting .243/.305/.419 on the year with a pair of home runs and 14 RBI.
