Justin Upton left Thursday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent leg injury.

Upton came up grimacing after sliding into third base in the bottom of the eighth inning. His brother B.J. entered as a pinch-runner. The Braves should have an update on Justin at some point Thursday afternoon.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons revealed after Monday's loss to the Red Sox that he would have used Brett Cecil as his closer had an opportunity arisen.

Miguel Castro has struggled lately, as he's been scored upon in four out of his last five appearances and blown two save chances over that stretch. The 20-year-old took the loss on Monday, retiring just one of the four batters he faced. Cecil has been worse this season with a 7.20 ERA, but it appears that, at the very least, the two might be in a committee at closer at this point. Needless to say, it's a less than ideal situation for fantasy owners.

Mookie Betts delivered the winning hit in the bottom of the ninth with an RBI single to left-center on Monday against the Blue Jays.

The score was knotted up at five apiece entering the bottom of the ninth. Betts, who was 2-for-3 with a double prior to his final at-bat, stepped to the plate with runners on second and third and one out against Miguel Castro. Betts sent a 1-0 offering into left-center to bring home the game-winning run. It was a rare offensive outburst for the prospect, as he still carries a meager .218/.303/.333 triple-slash line with two home runs and 10 RBI on the season.

Daniel Murphy helped push the Mets to victory, slugging a ninth-inning three-run home run as his team topped the Marlins on Monday.

Murphy entered the frame 0-for-3, appearing to extend what has been a season-long slump. However, he got around on a Steve Cishek offering with two men on base to put the Mets up 3-1 in the top of the ninth. Murphy has two home runs, 14 RBI, and a .174/.247/.333 triple-slash line on the season.

Dillon Gee allowed just one run, needing only 70 pitches to get through 7 2/3 innings in a no-decision versus the Marlins on Monday.

Gee had shut the Marlins out through seven, but got into two-out trouble in the eighth. Justin Bour, Gee Gordon, and Martin Prado hit consecutive singles to plate the game's first run to chase Gee from the game. The Mets came back in the next frame to take Gee out of the running for the loss. Overall, the right-hander gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out three. Gee has been solid over his last two starts, lowering his ERA to 4.26. He'll look to keep it going over the weekend at home against the Nationals next.

Yunel Escobar left Monday's game against the Braves with an apparent left hand injury.

He appeared to be spiked by Andrelton Simmons as Simmons collided with him at third base. The Nationals should provide an update on Escobar's status before long.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Hunter Pence (forearm) is about a week away from taking batting practice.

Bochy conceded that it was an educated guess on his part, but it offers a rough timeline. Pence's recovery from a fractured forearm is coming alone a little more slowly than expected, as the Giants had hoped he'd be ready to go at the beginning of May. It's now looking like the best-case scenario for his return will be mid-May.

Brandon McCarthy has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

It's really a bummer for the Dodgers but especially for McCarthy, who had seemed to finally put his shoulder issues behind him and show signs of blossoming. He'll undergo Tommy John surgery soon and be sidelined into the 2016 season. With Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) also still a question mark, the Dodgers might be scour the trade market for rotation help. For now, Scott Baker and Mike Bolsinger could stick around for a while.

Gregory Polanco was scratched from Monday's lineup with tightness in his left groin.

It's not clear when Polanco suffered the injury. He'll receive treatment and be re-evaluated during the game and an update on his status will likely be available later Monday. Andrew Lambo took his place in right field.

Reds placed RHP Homer Bailey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 24, with a right elbow ligament sprain.

Yikes. Bailey had made just two starts after working his way back from last September's flexor tendon surgery and now it appears he might be headed for Tommy John surgery. The Reds have yet to comment on whether Bailey will have an operation or if he'll try rehabbing the injury first. Raisel Iglesias and Michael Lorenzen are candidates to replace Bailey in the rotation.

Brandon Belt is absent from the Giants' lineup for the third straight day Monday.

It's bad timing with the club facing three straight left-handers, but it's discouraging that manager Bruce Bochy has no faith in Belt's ability versus southpaws. His career OPS against lefties (.771) is not much lower than it is versus righties (.790), but Bochy is, in effect, platooning Belt with Andrew Susac. Buster Posey is at first base again Monday, while Susac is behind the plate.
Apr 27 - 6:33 PM

Monday's game between the White Sox and Orioles has been postponed due to the protests in Baltimore.

The decision was made after the O's consulted with the Baltimore City Police Department. No makeup date has been scheduled yet. Ubaldo Jimenez and Hector Noesi had been slated to start Monday.
