Player News
Mariners transpose Ackley, Jackson in batting order Tuesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:17 pm ET) The Mariners have flip-flopped the first two hitters in their lineup for the Tuesday night game against visiting Houston. Dustin Ackley is set to lead off for just the second time this season with Austin Jackson batting second.

Perhaps the shakeup will benefit Ackley, who has slowed down following a quick start. He is 2-for-18 after beginning the season on a five-game hitting streak.


Astros SS Jed Lowrie set to sit Tuesday against Mariners
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:10 pm ET) Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie is catching a break Tuesday night in Seattle. Marwin Gonzalez is set to start instead.

Lowrie is certainly not being benched for a lack of production. He has three home runs and seven RBI despite a .233 batting average. He drove in a pair with two hits Monday, breaking an 0-for-11 skid in the process.


Rest, not foot, keeps Corey Dickerson out of Rockies' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6:09 pm ET) Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson is out of the team's starting lineup for Tuesday's game. However the reason for Dickerson's absence is rest, not the foot that has been giving him trouble. 

Dickerson has been battling plantar fasciitis since spring training and was doubtful for the game. He told MLB.com he thinks he can play.  

Charlie Blackmon moves from center to left field to replace Dickerson, and Drew Stubbs gets the start in center, batting seventh. 


Joe Maddon: Javier Baez could be close to joining Cubs
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:08 pm ET) Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicated that infielder Javier Baez could be close to rejoining the big-league club, according to MLB.com.

Baez began his 2015 campaign in extended spring training after collecting just nine hits in 52 at-bats while striking out 20 times. He has been on bereavement leave from Triple-A Iowa since April 9 following the passing of his sister.

"From our perspective, we want him to take as much time as necessary," Maddon said.


Rangers C Robinson Chirinos, OF Carlos Peguero back in the lineup
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:07 pm ET) Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos and outfielder Carlos Peguero are back in the starting lineup Tuesday after missing Sunday's game against the Mariners, the team announced.

Chirinos has started eight of the team's 13 games and is hitting .208 with two home runs in 24 at-bats this season. Peguero will make his fifth start Tuesday and is hitting .278 with three doubles in 18 at-bats. The Rangers are currently the underdogs (+130) against the Diamondbacks.


Nolan Arenado out of Rockies' lineup, may pinch hit
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6:05 pm ET) Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game. 

Arenado also missed Monday's game with a sore left wrist. He was able to swing a bat earlier in the day and is available to pinch hit, if necessary, per MLB.com.

Rafael Ynoa got the start at third base for the second straight day and is batting ninth in the order. 


Brewers give 3B Aramis Ramirez another night off on Tuesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:59 pm ET) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez was given the night off for the second time in three days. Milwaukee will roll with Jason Rogers at third base against the Reds.

Ramirez has been held without a hit over his last 15 at-bats. His batting average has dipped from .194 to .130 over that four-game span.

Milwaukee is favored (-126) at home against Cincinnati.


Struggling Phillies OF Revere has good history vs. Haren
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:49 pm ET) There is both good and bad news regarding Phillies outfielder Ben Revere and his matchup Tuesday night against Miami starter Dan Haren.

The good news is that he is 8 for 18 lifetime against the right-hander, per the Philadelphia Daily News The bad news is that he is immersed in a season-long slump and owns a slash line of .167/.205/.190. He does have two hits in his last five at-bats, making him a bit of a breakout candidate.


Mets' Collins on Lagares moving to No. 2 hole: Our options were limited
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:34 pm ET) Mets outfielder Juan Lagares moved to the No. 2 spot in the order Tuesday night against the Braves. The move was made after third baseman and everyday No. 2 hitter David Wright was placed on the disabled list on Wednesday with a hamstring issue, and his replacement Travis d'Arnaud suffered a fractured hand on Sunday.

Lagares is hitting .275/.302/.294 with five RBI through his first 53 plate appearances.

"Well, I think our options were a little limited," manager Terry Collins. "And here's a guy that we think is starting to swing the bat much better. We almost started the season with him leading off. So I just thought I'll put him in the two-hole. ... He uses the whole field to hit. If Grandy [Curtis Granderson] gets on, he's got a hole between first and second, which he's very accustomed to hitting something in that hole. And his foot speed helps. If he gets on, he can get himself in scoring position."


Brewers' Martin Maldonado gets first start after Lucroy goes on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:21 pm ET) Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado was in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Reds. It was his third start and first since the Brewers placed Jonathan Lucroy on the disabled list due to a broken big toe on his left foot.

Maldonado will likely see the bulk of playing time at catcher with Lucroy sidelined. He entered play Tuesday hitless in nine at-bats.
