Blue Jays recalled LHP Chad Girodo from Triple-A Buffalo.

Girodo will give the Blue Jays a fresh bullpen arm. The left-hander spent one day in the majors late last month and threw two scoreless innings of relief. He has very good career numbers in the minor leagues.
May 3 - 11:18 PM

Blue Jays optioned 1B/3B Matt Dominguez to Triple-A Buffalo.

Dominguez was 0-for-7 with three strikeouts during his nearly week-long stay in the bigs. The 26-year-old stands as a .232/.274/.372 career major league hitter.

Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Drawing a start against lefty Scott Kazmir, Pearce connected for a solo home run in the fifth inning. He's been deployed sparingly this year, playing mostly against southpaws -- he's a career .263/.345/.475 hitter against pitchers of that orientation -- and has been serviceable in that role. After Tuesday's game, the 33-year-old is hitting .283/.365/.435 with two home runs in 46 at-bats.
May 3 - 10:44 PM

Matt Moore allowed seven runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Moore served up a couple homers along with walking three batters on the night. The start was his worst of 2016, leaving him with a 4.95 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through six starts on the year. What's more, he's now lost three straight starts. He'll look to get back in the win column Monday at the Mariners.

Mark Trumbo homered twice Tuesday in the Orioles' 4-1 defeat of the Yankees.

Trumbo got to Yankees starter Luis Severino for a solo shot in the second inning and a two-run shot in the fifth, finishing the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI. The 30-year-old slugger has been one of the most productive hitters in baseball through the first month of 2016, boasting a .337/.381/.612 slash line, eight home runs, and 22 RBI in 25 games. Some regression is undoubtedly coming, but Camden Yards is a pretty ideal fit for a guy of Trumbo's skillset.

Darren O'Day picked up a save Tuesday in the Orioles' win over the Yankees.

O'Day got the call in the ninth with Zach Britton nursing an ankle injury and worked around a Carlos Beltran leadoff single to net his second save of the season. O'Day's other save was on April 7 against the Twins, with Britton getting a routine day off. Britton isn't expected to be out much longer, so there's no reason to go nuts for O'Day in a non-holds league. He is a truly excellent setup man, though.
May 3 - 10:10 PM

Chris Tillman fired seven innings of one-run ball in the Orioles' defeat of the Yankees on Tuesday.

Tillman gave up five hits and walked four, but he worked out of some tight situations with a total of nine strikeouts and five groundouts. The right-hander has a shiny 2.81 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 33/12 K/BB ratio in 32 innings (six starts) this season for the O's. He'll look to keep it all working next time out against the A's.
May 3 - 10:07 PM

Luis Severino dropped to 0-4 on Tuesday after allowing four runs -- three earned -- over six innings against the Orioles.

Mark Trumbo took Severino deep for a solo shot in the second inning and a two-run shot in the fifth. The young Yankees right-hander is not off to a very promising start this season, now with a 6.31 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 25 2/3 innings, and his next outing will come against the rival Red Sox. He should be on the bench in fantasy leagues for now.
May 3 - 10:04 PM

Alex Rodriguez will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring.

A-Rod pulled up lame while running to first base in the fifth inning Tuesday and manager Joe Girardi acknowledged after the game that the situation is "definitely worrisome." It sounds like a disabled list stint could be coming for the veteran slugger. Dustin Ackley replaced him in the Yankees' lineup on Tuesday night.
May 3 - 9:58 PM

Josh Tomlin held the Tigers to two runs over six innings of work in Tuesday's 7-3 victory.

Tomlin surrendered nine hits -- with one of them being a two-run shot by Ian Kinsler -- but he didn't walk anyone and struck out five. The crafty right-hander has now won each of his four starts this season and sports a 3.13 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. He'll get the Royals this weekend at home.
May 3 - 9:47 PM

Justin Verlander was touched up for seven runs across five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

The Indians jumped on Verlander for three runs in the first inning, and Francisco Lindor provided an exclamation point in the fifth with a three-run homer. Verlander has posted quality starts in four of his six tries this season, but he's been lit up for seven runs in each of his other two outings, resulting in an ugly 6.49 ERA. He'll try to bounce back this weekend at home versus the Rangers.
May 3 - 9:44 PM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor's long three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning off of Justin Verlander effectively ended the game, extending the Indians' lead to 7-2 at the time. It was the young shortstop's second longball of the season and pushed his RBI total up to 12. With a .315/.380/.438 batting line in his first 23 games, Lindor has certainly avoided a sophomore slump to this point.
May 3 - 9:41 PM

Alex Rodriguez was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Orioles with an apparent leg injury.

A-Rod appeared to tweak something in his right leg while running to first base in the top of the fifth inning and Dustin Ackley entered to hit for him in the top of the eighth. There should be an update after the game. This could be a big blow for the already-struggling Yanks.
May 3 - 9:31 PM

Ian Kinsler singled and smacked a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Kinsler's shot to left field off of Josh Tomlin in the top of the fifth inning got the Tigers back in the game, but Francisco Lindor's three-run blast in the bottom of the frame essentially put the contest out of reach. After slugging a disappointing 10 homers last season, Kinsler already has five this year.
May 3 - 9:25 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs over six innings Tuesday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

But he didn't walk anybody and those three runs came on only five hits. It was a much better outing than his rehab debut with Pawtucket last Thursday, when Rodriguez gave up three runs on six hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings. The young left-hander should be a start or two away from returning to Boston.
