Ryan Howard's only hit on Thursday was a big one, as his eighth-inning grand slam gave the Phillies the lead and the win against the Astros.

Howard had been mired in a slump, but Astros pitching has been medicine for his bat as he drove in multiple runs in all three games of the Phillies' sweep. He took lefty reliever Tony Sipp out to left-center with the bases loaded to give the Phillies a 6-5 lead. Shockingly, Howard has hit left-handed pitching significantly better than right-handed pitching this season. Overall, he's slashing .220/.301/.383 with 18 home runs and 71 RBI.

Joc Pederson (groin) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

It was expected after he hurt his right groin on Sunday. The good news is that Pederson hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, so it appears he's day-to-day at this point. Enrique Hernandez is starting in center field.

Giants purchased the contract of INF Christian Arroyo from Triple-A Sacramento.

The Giants are 6-13 and reeling from the loss of Madison Bumgarner, so they're taking a shot that Arroyo might be able to provide a spark. A first-round pick in the 2013 Draft, Arroyo had a disappointing 2016 at the Double-A level but has been on fire this year at Sacramento, batting .446/.478/.692 with three homers, 12 RBI and two stolen bases. He is batting sixth Monday in his major league debut and will take over as the team's everyday third baseman, with Eduardo Nunez moving to left field. Arroyo might add something to San Francisco's offense, but the 21-year-old's skill set might not lead to much fantasy value, at least not right away.

Major League Baseball has suspended Miguel Sano one game for his involvement in an altercation during Saturday's game versus the Tigers.

Sano took exception to a Matt Boyd pitch that went behind him and then gave a hard shove to James McCann after the catcher intervened. The Twins' third baseman is in Monday's lineup and will continue to play until his appeal is heard.

Diamondbacks placed RHP Shelby Miller on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

The injury that forced him from Sunday's start had been described as forearm tightness. That the D'Backs are saying it's merely inflammation would seem to be an encouraging sign, although they've yet to offer any more details. The club also hasn't said who will take Miller's spot in the rotation, but Archie Bradley is an obvious candidate.

Ian Desmond (hand) took batting practice on Monday.

It's the first time he's taken BP on the field since he suffered a fracture in his left hand in mid-March. The Rockies haven't said when Desmond would begin a rehab assignment, but it should be just right around the corner. A return in early May is looking likely.
Apr 24 - 5:18 PM

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Monday.

It's Harper's first day off of the season, as he had started each of the team's first 18 games. The timing is unfortunate for his fantasy owners given that the day off comes at Coors Field. Adam Eaton will slide over to right field and Michael Taylor will get a start in center. The Nationals also have Jose Lobaton at catcher over Matt Wieters.
Apr 24 - 5:12 PM

Salvador Perez (neck) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Perez missed a couple games with a stiff neck. He's catching and batting fifth against Miguel Gonzalez and the White Sox.
Apr 24 - 4:50 PM

Zach Britton (forearm) will throw a full bullpen session on Wednesday.

That's assuming he feels fine Tuesday following Monday's flat-ground session. The Orioles are saying Britton will be re-evaluated after Wednesday's bullpen session but they didn't indicate whether a short rehab assignment might be the next step or if he might just be activated. We'll know more in a few days.
Apr 24 - 4:48 PM

Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) is on track to rejoin the Rays' rotation on May 1 in Miami.

Odorizzi threw a bullpen session over the weekend and will go through a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday. The right-hander says the strained left hamstring that put him on the disabled list is no longer an issue. Odorizzi posted a 4.15 ERA in his first 13 innings for the Rays before the injury.
Apr 24 - 4:43 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) is considered day-to-day after being examined Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Good news for the Red Sox. Pedroia was spiked in the leg by Orioles third baseman Manny Machado on Friday and came down with soreness in his left knee and ankle, but it doesn't sound like he'll be sidelined much longer.
Apr 24 - 3:22 PM

Pablo Sandoval (knee) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Sandoval exited Sunday's game against the Orioles with what was termed as a right knee sprain. He was initially called day-to-day, but there should be more clarity on his status soon.
