Tigers optioned OF Steven Moya to Triple-A Toledo.
The move was made prior to Saturday's game. Moya batted .281 (9-for-32) with two doubles and two RBI during his time with the big club and should get another chance later this summer.
Howie Kendrick went 2-for-4 with a home run, stolen base and two runs scored against the Mets on Saturday.
Kendrick showed off the power and speed that made him a consistent double-digit homers, double-digit steals player at one point in his career. Of course, he's a bit removed from those days -- the home run was his second and the stolen base was his third thus far this season. The 32-year-old has picked it up a bit after a slow start, batting .243/.283/.324 through Saturday's game.
Kenta Maeda underwent x-rays on his right hand after Saturday's win over the Mets, but they came back negative.
Maeda got struck by a sharp comebacker on Saturday. He stayed in the game, and the post-game x-rays came back negative. Manager Dave Roberts indicated that he should make his next start without issue.
Kenta Maeda spun five scoreless innings in a win over the Mets on Saturday.
Maeda scattered two hits and two walks while striking out three. He was removed after 75 pitches, possibly related to recent reports that he's struggling to adjust to pitching every fifth day. Of course, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts may also have wanted to get Maeda out of the game with a positive result after he'd struggled in recent starts. The win moved Maeda to 4-3 with a 3.00 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 51/17 K/BB ratio over 57 innings this year. The right-hander will have a challenge on his hands Thursday when the Dodgers visit the Cubs.
Noah Syndergaard was ejected after throwing at Chase Utley on Saturday, and manager Terry Collins is worried he'll face a suspension.
Syndergaard got tossed without any warnings being issued beforehand, which is causing some frustration among the Mets' faithful, but we'll likely have to wait a couple of days before Major League Baseball makes any decision on a suspension.
