Mets sign Brooks Conrad to minor-league deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2:03 pm ET) The Mets have signed infielder Brooks Conrad to a minor-league deal, MLB Trade Rumors reports. Conrad went 3 for 30 with the Padres last season while hitting one home run and striking out 14 times.

Indians' Trevor Bauer to try to throw on Sunday, Tuesday start unsure
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:02 pm ET) Indians' starter Trevor Bauer will try to play catch on Sunday. Bauer was scratched from Saturday's start with an illness. Right now, he's slotted to start on Tuesday, filling in for T.J. House, who started in Bauer's place on Saturday. 

Manager Terry Francona said the team wasn't sure if Tuesday's start was in jeopardy, per MLB.com.


Royals' Greg Holland cleared to begin throwing on Sunday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:59 pm ET) Royals pitcher Greg Holland has been cleared to begin throwing, per the Kansas City Star. Holland is on the 15-day disabled list with a pectoral strain. 

Holland was scheduled to begin throwing on Sunday by playing catch. 


Pirates' Mark Melancon unavailable Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:59 pm ET) Pirates closer Mark Melancon is unavailable to pitch Sunday after racking up three saves in the last three days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Melancon has dealt with some velocity issues this April and owns a 5.79 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but he hasn't surrendered a run in any of his three appearances over the last three days. With the closer getting a scheduled break, the team could turn to lefty Tony Watson or righty Jared Hughes in a save opportunity Sunday.


Giants-Rockies postponed Sunday due to rain
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:53 pm ET) Sunday's scheduled game between the Giants and Rockies has been postponed due to rain, the Denver Post reports.

The series finale between the two teams was scheduled to feature a matchup between righty Tim Lincecum and lefty Tyler Matzek, but both starters could have their starts pushed back one day as their respective teams each open a series on the road. Makeup details for Sunday's postponement have yet to be announced.


Jake Marisnick returns to Astros' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:49 pm ET) Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick returned to the starting lineup on Sunday, after missing two straight with a leg injury. 

The Astros are +140 money line underdogs at Oakland. 


Mets' Juan Lagares racks up four hits, three runs Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:48 pm ET) Mets center fielder Juan Lagares went 4 for 4 with a triple, an RBI and three runs scored in his team's 8-2 win over the Yankees Saturday.

"It's a great feeling," Lagares said after the game, per MLB.com. "It's one of those days when you feel good out there and make good swings."

The four hits matched a career high for Lagares, who indicated he focused on plate discipline during Saturday's game.

"I just try to do too much sometimes," Lagares said. "When I swing at strikes, I get good results. That's it."

Though the Mets moved Lagares to seventh in the batting order after four games batting second, they still see him as a future leadoff man.

"I don't necessarily think Juan is an RBI guy," manager Terry Collins said. "I think when he starts to have good at-bats, he's a top-of-the-order guy, which we hope to get him back in that spot."

Lagares has hit .296/.311/.338 with eight RBI, 10 runs scored and one stolen base in 71 at-bats.


Dodgers' Yasiel Puig (hamstring) out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:40 pm ET) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Padres in San Diego.

Puig came out of Friday's game after reinjuring his hamstring and was out of the lineup Saturday as well. Manager Don Mattingly indicated Saturday that there have been discussions about putting the outfielder on the disabled list to allow the hamstring ample time to heal. Puig has hit .279/.380/.465 with two home runs and four RBI in 43 at-bats.

The Dodgers are underdogs (+105) in San Diego Sunday.


Craig Gentry starts in place of Mark Canha for Athletics
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:37 pm ET) Athletics left fielder Mark Canha is out of the lineup for the second straight game on Sunday. Craig Gentry gets his first start of the season in left in Canha's place. 

Gentry has had five starts in center and two in right. 

The A's are -150 money line favorites at home against Houston. 


Rockies' Corey Dickerson (quad) out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:36 pm ET) Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Dickerson came out of Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his left quad. He has also dealt with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. With Dickerson out, center fielder Charlie Blackmon will shift to left field and Drew Stubbs will bat seventh and play center field.

The Rockies are favorites (-122) against the Giants Sunday.
