Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone throws two scoreless Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:15 pm ET) Indians pitcher Nick Hagadone went two scoreless innings in Cleveland's 4-2 win over the Twins Saturday. Manager Terry Francona loves what he's seen from Hagadone so far, reports MLB.com.

"Hags threw the ball so well," Francona said. "He has the ability to do this. If you let an outing or two [affect your thinking], if you kind of put a guy in the penalty box, you're not going to get to see what he can do. That doesn't help anybody."

Hagadone has now thrown 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts and just two walks with a 3.38 ERA.

"He did an outstanding job," closer Cody Allen said. "Hags is a big part of this team. He's a guy that I know Tito likes to lean on, because he's a left-hander that can get righties and lefties out. He's got great stuff. He did a great job for us last year and we're looking for him to do the same thing this year."


Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez earns first win of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:07 pm ET) Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez worked six strong innings in St. Louis' 5-2 win over the Reds Saturday. Martinez allowed one run on three hits with four strikeouts in the outing.

His only mistake of the day came in the fifth inning when he allowed a lead off home run to Zack Cozart. He set the next three batters down in order. 

"He seems to have a pretty good feel for the changeup and the breaking ball, to kind of put a little more on, take a little off," manager Mike Matheny said to FOXSports.com. "That's something you don't necessarily teach. It's just a feel."

He will look to keep things rolling Friday against the Brewers.


Astros manager A.J. Hinch please with Josh Fields' (groin) progress
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(9:07 pm ET) Astros manager A.J. Hinch was encouraged with pitcher Josh Fields' (groin) Triple-A outing on Friday, despite giving up a run on three hits in a relief appearance, reports the Houston Chronicle

"The reports are that was some of the best stuff that Fields has featured while on rehab," Hinch said. "So that’s a good sign. Gave up a run, threw just north of 20 pitches. His stuff was together. His changeup was really good. He’s inching closer to coming back." 

Fields, who is on the disabled list with a groin strain, is to make another relief outing on Sunday.


Athletics pitcher Jesse Hahn leaves start Saturday with apparent injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:54 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Jesse Hahn was forced to leave his start Saturday against the Royals with an apparent injury. Hahn left with one out in the sixth after picking up a possible blister on his finger, according to the announcing team.

Hahn went 5 1/3 scoreless innings with three hits allowed and no strikeouts.


Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (ribs) remains questionable for Sunday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(8:47 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino's status for Sunday's game against the Orioles remains unknown, reports the Boston Herald.

Victorino was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup because of sore ribs he suffered crashing into the outfield wall during Friday's game.

"When he hit the wall, he made a great effort to try to bring back a home run," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "The left rib area was sore here today. He was no go. We’ll check him in the morning on his availability."

Rockies P David Hale (oblique) to get minor league start on Monday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(8:40 pm ET) Rockies pitcher David Hale (oblique), who began the season on the 15-day disabled list, will get a start on Monday with the organization's High-A team (Modesto), reports the Denver Post.

He'll be held to three innings or 45 pitches.

Hale, who joined the Rockies in the offseason via a trade, was placed on the DL to begin the season.

Royals ace Ventura ejected for beaning Athletics' Lawrie
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8:16 pm ET) Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura was ejected by umpire Jim Joyce in the fourth inning Saturday night for hitting Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie with a pitch.

The benches emptied, but no punches were thrown and the players soon dispersed, according to Comcast SportsNet.

Lawrie has been in the center of a controversy after a hard slide into second base Friday caused injury to Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar.

Ventura collapsed in the fourth after three no-hit innings. He had already given up five runs when he beaned Lawrie.


Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman cracks fourth homer Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:05 pm ET) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman went 2 for 4 at the plate in Atlanta's 6-5 loss to the Blue Jays Saturday in 10 innings. 

Freeman cranked an 0-1 pitch from R.A. Dickey over the right field wall in the third inning, driving home Nick Markakis.

"The ball's never gonna do the same thing, so there's no point in seeing a pitch," said Freeman to MLB.com. "He throws between 67 and 80 [mph], so you just try to see one up and hope it doesn't move as much," Freeman said.

He is now hitting .478 in his career against knuckleball pitchers with three home runs.


Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan throws bullpen Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:58 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan was able to throw a 15-pitch bullpen session Saturday for the first time since landing on the disabled-list, reports MLive.com.

"I planned on just long tossing, but I felt awesome," Nathan said. "(Pitching coach Jeff Jones) might had a plan but I didn't know about it. But I said, 'Let's do it.'"

Nathan, who has been on the DL with a right elbow flexor strain since April 7, is eligible to be activated Wednesday. He is expected to throw a full bullpen session Monday.

"I'm eligible, but I don't want to speculate on what we're going to do." he said. "I assume they would want me to get some game action to make sure (I'm ready)."


Tigers manager Brad Ausmus to 'be careful' with Victor Martinez
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:55 pm ET) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus knows there is a long season ahead. That's why the skipper wants to "be careful" with designated hitter Victor Martinez and his knee injury, reports MLive.com.

"It's the knee on the load-side of his body when he's hitting left-handed," Ausmus said. "Right-handed, it's not (a problem). It doesn't bother him as much."

Martinez is only two months removed from undergoing surgery on his knee.

"I think he can face right-handed pitchers," Ausmus said. "But it's something we want to keep an eye on."
