Rich Hill threw five innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Dodgers' 3-2 defeat of the Marlins.

Hill struck out nine batters and issued zero walks in another excellent outing. The one run he gave up came on an RBI single by Ichiro Suzuki in the bottom of the fifth. Hill boasts a 1.74 ERA and 44/6 K/BB ratio over his last five starts covering 31 innings. He'll try to keep it rolling next time out against the Braves.

Carlos Rodon (shoulder) threw 34 pitches over three innings in an extended spring training game Monday.

Fangraphs' Eric Longenhagen was at the outing and clocked Rodon mostly at 90-92 mph with his fastball but added that he topped out at 93-95 a few times. He also added that he threw more changeups than sliders, which isn't a surprise at this stage of the rehab process. Rodon is coming back from arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder and isn't expected back until June.

David Dahl is starting in right field and batting cleanup for the Rockies on Monday.

Yes, the Rockies aren't at full strength, but it's certainly notable that Dahl is in the cleanup spot in the team's first game against a righty since his promotion (he batted sixth versus a lefty Sunday). Dahl faces an uncertain future when the Rockies have everyone available, but he has an opportunity to make a good impression.

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) resumed baseball activities Monday.

Schoop obviously isn't going to be activated when first eligible Tuesday as he had originally hoped, but it's obviously a good sign that he's going through drills again. He will probably need some rehab at-bats before rejoining the Orioles' lineup.

Trey Mancini (knee) is hoping to return to the Orioles' lineup Tuesday.

Mancini will miss a third straight game Monday, but he went through baseball activities in pregame and is feeling much better. He suffered a bruised right knee when he slid into a side wall in the outfield while trying to make a catch on Friday. Craig Gentry is making another start in left field Monday.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Monday that Ervin Santana (finger) is "getting close" to throwing a bullpen session.

Santana began a throwing program nearly two weeks ago and is almost ready for mound work. He had a debridement procedure on his right middle finger back in early February and will need a handful of rehab starts before being activated, so his return is obviously not imminent.

Brandon Drury (migraines) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

Drury has been told by a doctor that the migraines/blurred vision issues he's dealt with are related to a tendon problem in the back of his neck. He's feeling better now, though, and is ready for game action. With Gleyber Torres up and Miguel Andujar heating up, Drury's playing time going forward looks uncertain.

Dee Gordon (foot) is back in the Mariners' lineup Monday.

Gordon didn't start Sunday in part because of a minor foot injury, but he was able to pinch-hit and is back in the lineup a day later. The speedster is in center field and batting leadoff against Carson Fulmer and the White Sox.

Yasmani Grandal delivered a two-run double in the sixth inning on Sunday, helping to lead the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the Nationals.

Grandal got the Dodgers on the board with a two-run double off of Jeremy Hellickson in the sixth inning, sparking a three-run rally that would eventually springboard the Dodgers to victory. He also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-3. The hard-hitting backstop has been the Dodgers' biggest weapon on offense this season, slashing .349/.446/.587 with three homers and 16 RBI.

Michael Taylor had a monster day at the dish in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, going 3-for-3 with a double and his first home run of the season.

Taylor also walked, scored a pair of runs and swiped a pair of bases. His solo shot in the fourth inning increased the Nationals' lead to 2-0. He'll never be expected to hit for a high average, but his combination of power and speed is certainly valuable in most mixed leagues. He's now hitting .224/.280/.329 with a homer, five RBI and eight stolen bases on the year.

Brandon Belt homered in his fourth straight game Sunday, finishing 3-for-5 with two runs scored as the Giants bested the Angels 4-2.

The home run and the four-game streak are impressive -- he caught up to a high and tight fastball from Blake Parker in the fifth inning, yanking it over the right field wall -- but he set an MLB record with his first at-bat of the afternoon, a 21-pitch saga that ended with a lineout. It was one of the few times Angels hitters were able to get him out Sunday, and with the good game he's now hitting .288/.386/.576 through 17 games.
Apr 22 - 9:35 PM

Johnny Cueto tossed six scoreless innings Sunday, striking out seven in a win over the Angels.

As he's been all year, Cueto was brilliant in this one, walking two while giving p just two singles in his six innings of work. In four starts overall, the right-hander has allowed just one run -- total -- across 26 innings. That works out to a 0.35 ERA, with a 0.65 WHIP and 23/4 K/BB ratio to boot. His blister issues seemingly behind him, Cueto will look to keep rolling Saturday when he faces the division-rival Dodgers.
