Indians pitcher Danny Salazar strikes out nine in losing effort
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:37 pm ET) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar allowed four runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Cleveland's 5-3 loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

Salazar struggled in the first inning when he allowed a single to Alex Gordon and hit Kendrys Morales with a pitch. Eric Hosmer then cleared the bases with a three-run shot over the left center field wall. Salazar was able to calm down until the fifth inning when he allowed a lead off triple to Jarrod Dyson, who later scored on an Alex Gordon single.

Salazar, who moves to 3-1, pushed his ERA to 3.81 in 26 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Twins.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:28 pm ET) Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was brought on in a non-save situation Tuesday, leading 7-1 in the ninth inning, and struggled with his control, walking three batters before fanning the next two to close out the game. 

Chapman had not pitched in six days prior to Tuesday. 

Chapman, who had three strike outs overall on Tuesday, has not allowed a run and has K'd 22 batters in 11 2/3 innings this season. 

The right hander had only three walks on the season before issuing three more on Tuesday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:21 pm ET) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin went 3 for 4 at the plate in Toronto's 6-3 loss to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Martin got his offense going early when he cracked a double to left field off of Michael Pineda in the third. He was left stranded at second on an Edwin Encarnacion line out. Then in the ninth, Martin ripped a 1-1 pitch from David Carpenter over the left center field wall for a solo shot, his sixth of the season.

Martin moved his average to .263 with 17 RBI in 80 at-bats this season.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:20 pm ET) Left fielder Starling Marte connected for his seventh home run of the season Tuesday in the Pirates' loss to the Reds. 

Marte's homer was a second-inning solo shot of Reds starter Michael Lorenzen. 

The seven homers for Marte is currently the most for the Pirates.


Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada tagged for five runs in losing effort
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:18 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada didn't have the best return to the starting rotation on Tuesday, allowing five runs, four earned, on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings of work in Toronto's 6-3 loss to the Yankees.

Estrada was knocked around early, allowing three straight hits in the first inning, including a two-run double by Alex Rodriguez. After giving up another run in the second, Estrada surrendered a two-run shot to Mark Teixeira in the fifth, ending his night.

Estrada, now 1-1, moved his ERA to 2.93 in 15 1/3 innings of work this season. His next scheduled start is set for Monday against the Orioles. 


Reds 3B Todd Frazier hitting only homers lately, adds another Tuesday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:15 pm ET) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier homered in his first at-bat Tuesday and, at that point, had hit a round tripper for each of his previous five hits. 

Frazier singled in the sixth inning to snap his homer streak. 

He now has nine homers on the season to lead the Reds.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:12 pm ET) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira went 1 for 4 at the plate in New York's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Teixeira, who is dealing with a small lat issue, did his damage in the fifth inning when he ripped a two-run shot over the right field wall off of Marco Estrada, his 10th of the year. Teixeira moved his average to .205 with 22 RBI in 88 at-bats this season.


Pirates starter Jeff Locke hammered by homers, suffers defeat
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:11 pm ET) Pirates starter Jeff Locke (2-2) gave up four runs on seven hits, two via the home run, in seven innings to take the loss against the Reds on Tuesday. 

Todd Frazier connected for a solo homer off Locke while Marlon Byrd added a two-run shot. 

After winning his first two starts of the season, Locke has now dropped two in a row.

Locke will look to return to form in his next start set for Sunday against the Cardinals.


Yankees closer Andrew Miller picks up 11th save of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:10 pm ET) Yankees closer Andrew Miller wasn't expected to be needed in New York's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday. New York took the field in the ninth with a 6-0 lead, but after David Carpenter allowed a solo home run to Russell Martin and two more runs to score, Miller was called on to pick up the last out of the game.

Miller walked Jose Bautista but then got Devon Travis to fly out to right to end the game, earning his 11th save of the year. Miller is still yet to allow a run in 13 2/3 innings of work.


Grant Balfour eager to work his way back into Rays' bullpen
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:09 pm ET) Veteran reliever Grant Balfour has joined Triple-A Durham in hopes of climbing his way back to the Rays, according to MLB.com.

"He was eager to join Durham to get back into shape," general manager Matt Silverman said. "For Grant, this is an opportunity for him to have a true Spring Training. He'll be able to build up his arm properly. He'll be able to pitch on a schedule. We hope he'll regain the form that he's had in the past and he'll be back to helping us win ballgames at the Major League level."

Balfour was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on April 18 and released by the club last week before signing a minor-league deal with the Rays. The 37-year-old registered a 4.91 ERA over 62 1/3 innings in 2014.

"I think he had something to prove," Silverman said. "And he wants to help this organization win. He's loyal to the Rays and knows that we'll give him every opportunity to get back. I think he also knows that he needs some time to build himself back up.

"He could go back into the Majors right now. But he wouldn't be pitching on the same schedule and he wouldn't have the opportunity to build himself back up. There's a lot of season left. And if he can get himself back into shape, he can help this club for many months."
