Latest Headlines

Angel Pagan (back) is on pace to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

It was reported over the weekend that Pagan was expected back Tuesday, but the Giants decided to extend his rehab a bit. He'll appear in what is expected to be his final rehab game Tuesday if all goes well. The outfielder has been out since mid-June with back issues.

Kolten Wong finally notched his first extra-base hit of the season Monday, smacking a two-run homer in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Wong looked awful in striking out in his first two plate appearances, but he scorched the ball on a lineout to center field in his third at-bat and then went deep in his fourth trip to the dish. He's got an ugly .233/.304/.283 batting line on the season, but perhaps this will get Wong going.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Monday's game that Ryan Braun is dealing with "general soreness."

It doesn't sound like a major concern, but Braun is not a sure thing to play Tuesday. The 32-year-old went 3-for-3 on Monday against the Angels and is batting .372/.443/.605 overall this season.

Brandon Crawford's three-run homer in the seventh inning propelled the Giants to a comeback win over the Reds on Monday.

The Reds tagged Johnny Cueto for six runs in the third inning, but then the Big Dread Machine known as the Reds bullpen went to work. JC Ramirez and Drew Hayes were lit up for six runs over their two innings, highlighted by Crawford's bomb. The Giants shortstop also tacked on an RBI single in the ninth. Crawford is hitting .253/.343/.414 with three homers and 10 RBI.

Joey Votto launched a three-run homer in Monday's loss to the Giants.

Votto took former teammate Johnny Cueto deep in the middle of a six-run third inning for the Reds before the club watched their horrid bullpen inevitably cough up the lead. It was the first baseman's lone hit on the night in four trips to the plate, but he'll take it given his struggles so far this season.

Bartolo Colon held the feeble Braves bats at bay Monday, whiffing seven over eight shutout frames in a 4-1 victory.

Colon gave up seven hits, but five of them were singles and he didn't issue any walks. He had thrown only 99 pitches through his eight innings, but Mets manager Terry Collins elected to pull Colon and get closer Jeurys Familia some work. Slated to turn 43 later this month, Colon sports a 2.56 ERA and 28/3 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 frames. He'll take on the Padres in San Diego this weekend.

Nomar Mazara singled and ripped a go-ahead, solo homer in the eighth inning of Monday's win over the Blue Jays.

Mazara drilled a Gavin Floyd offering over the center field wall to lead off the frame and then helped hold the lead when he threw Michael Saunders out at the plate in the bottom of the inning. The 21-year-old is now sporting a .333/.386/.486 batting line over his first 72 major league at-bats. It's really difficult at this point to see the Rangers sending Mazara down when Shin-Soo Choo (calf) returns.

Tyler Skaggs will be shut down from throwing for another week after being diagnosed with biceps tendinitis.

Skaggs recently came down with some shoulder tightness while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. The southpaw will be reevaluated in a week, after which he could be cleared to resume a throwing program. He's still a ways off from joining the Angels.

Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is set to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Plouffe, who went down with a right intercostal strain in mid-April, went 1-for-8 over two minor league rehab games with High-A Fort Myers. He was batting .302 (13-for-43) with two homers and an .868 OPS over 12 games prior to the injury.

Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe hears from a source that Pablo Sandoval faces "significant" surgery on his left shoulder.

The Red Sox have yet to announce the details of the surgery, but Abraham hears that the "odds are against" Sandoval playing this season. The Red Sox haven't missed him in the early part of the season, as Travis Shaw has taken advantage of regular playing time at third base by batting .322/.390/.533 over 25 games. For what it's worth, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Sandoval's contract with the Red Sox is not insured. The first two years of his contract have been a disaster.

Domingo Santana was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Angels with right shoulder tightness.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Alex Presley will start in his place in right field and hit leadoff.
May 2 - 7:03 PM

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Brutal news for Mesoraco, who was hoping to rebound after being limited to 23 games last season due to a torn labrum in his hip. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined or if surgery will be required, but he'll obviously be facing a lengthy absence. Tucker Barnhart will likely handle the bulk of the catching duties for now.
