Reds' Devin Mesoraco remains out of lineup Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco (hip) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Mesoraco hasn't started since April 12 while recovering from a hip impingement, but he's served as a pinch-hitter sporadically over the last week. Bryan Pena draws the start at catcher and bats eighth Tuesday.

The Reds are heavy favorites (-190) against the Brewers Tuesday with Johnny Cueto on the mound.


Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval back in the lineup Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is back in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays after suffering a neck injury in Monday's game. 

Sandoval left Monday's game after making a diving catch and hitting his face in the grass. Manager John Farrell said after the game he was dealing with whiplash-like symptoms.

 Sandoval is hitting .294 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 68 at-bats this season. The Red Sox are currently the favorites (-120) against Toronto.


Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli out of the lineup again Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2:11 pm ET) Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Blue Jays, the team announced per ESPN.com.

Napoli missed Monday's game while battling an illness. Daniel Nava will draw his second straight start at first and bat sixth. He is hitting .167 in 36 at-bats this season.


Report: Angels not involved in trade talks for Saltalamacchia
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:04 pm ET) Angels catchers are batting just .115 with a .214 on-base percentage and .345 OPS through 70 plate appearances. However, the struggles of Chris Iannetta and Drew Butera aren't enough for the Angels to pursue catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, according to FOX Sports.

The Angels are not involved in talks to acquire Saltalamacchia, according to the report. Saltalamacchia was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Monday.


Mets' Michael Conforto could earn Double-A promotion soon
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:56 pm ET) Mets outfielder prospect Michael Conforto could earn a Double-A promotion as soon as early May, as high Class A pitchers have begun to pitch around him due to his hot start, Newsday reports.

The new timetable would put his promotion about a month ahead of schedule.

Conforto has followed up his excellent debut season by hitting .324/.414/.608 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 74 at-bats with high Class A St. Lucie.


Phillies activate, option Dominic Brown to Triple-A
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:38 pm ET) The Phillies activated outfielder Domonic Brown from the disabled list Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the team announced.

Brown opened the season on the disabled list due to an Achilles injury. He struggled during his rehab assignment, hitting .189/.290/.283 with one home run in 53 at-bats between high Class A Clearwater and Lehigh Valley, leading to the team sending him down to the minors at the end of his rehab assignment to continue to work on finding his offense.

Brown hit .235/.285/.349 with 10 home runs, 63 RBI and seven stolen bases in 473 at-bats in 2014.


Cardinals' Matt Adams still looking for first hit against lefty
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:09 pm ET) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams struck out twice against Phillies southpaw Cole Hamels Monday, making him 0 for 8 with five strikeouts against lefties this season, MLB.com reports.

"We're giving Matt a chance to keep working and finding something positive to come from some left-handed at-bats. But right now they're hard to come by," manager Mike Matheny said. "Once again, we're not throwing some shabby lefties at him either. He's seeing some tough ones. I know that's frustrating for him."

Adams' other start against a lefty came against Cubs pitcher Jon Lester. If he continues to struggle against lefties, the first baseman could start losing playing time to Mark Reynolds when a southpaw is on the mound.

"You have to give him a chance to go out there and do it, and then we make adjustments as we go," Matheny said. "Depending on what those at-bats look like … and right now Matt's in a tough spot and is going to have to keep working and figure out how to get it done when he has the opportunities."

Adams has hit .232/.283/.357 with two home runs and eight RBI in 56 at-bats.


Padres deal with bullpen woes in Monday's loss to Astros
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:49 pm ET) Padres relievers Brandon Maurer, Joaquin Benoit and rookie Cory Mazzoni, who was making his major-league debut, combined to surrender six earned runs in two innings of work in San Diego's 9-4 loss to Houston Monday.

While Kevin Quackenbush was able to get out of the eighth inning without being charged with an earned run after Benoit let the first four batters of the inning reach base, the team now owns a 2.08 ERA, which ranks 20th in the majors.

"We need to get on a little bit of a bullpen roll," manager Bud Black said after the game, per MLB.com

Benoit (3-1) took the loss, allowing three earned runs on two hits and two walks while failing to record an out.

"They're making some mistakes, leaving the ball up in the zone, out over the middle of the plate," catcher Derek Norris said. "We've just got to execute some pitches better in some situations."

Black believes the bullpen will pitch better moving forward.

"They'll come around. They're not pitching like they're going to pitch," he said. "When you see their numbers at the end of the year, they'll be there. When you see their numbers now as a group, there are two or three guys not hitting on all cylinders."


Reds release Marcus Walden
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:33 pm ET) The Reds have released minor-league pitcher Marcus Walden , Baseball America reports.

Walden, 26, lasted three innings in his only start with Double-A Pensacola, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out two. He has spent most of his career in the Blue Jays organization.


Astros top prospect Carlos Correa off to torrid start at Double-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:26 pm ET) Astros top prospect Carlos Correa is putting up some big numbers at Double-A Corpus Christi to begin the 2015 season.

The former No. 1 overall pick (2012) is batting .382 with a .440 on-base percentage, .735 slugging percentage and 1.175 OPS in 16 games. He also has one triple, four home runs, 10 doubles and 21 RBI.

“I feel great up here,” he said, per the Houston Chronicle. “My body feels great. I’m just really happy to be out there playing every single day. After you’ve been injured you appreciate it even more.

“Everything is going great. We’re playing great baseball as a team. I feel good at the plate, and the team is doing a great job.”
