Astros closer Luke Gregerson nearly perfect to begin the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:48 pm ET) Astros closer Luke Gregerson has been as effective as can be to begin his first season in Houston. Gregerson has thrown seven scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and one walk.

"Any time you go out there and get guys out, no matter what the situation, is always a positive thing," Gregerson said to the Houston Chronicle. "That's what we’re here to do. I’m very happy right now with the way the ball’s coming out of my hand, the effectiveness of the pitches.

"When you're out there (closing compared to other relief roles), it doesn’t feel much different. You know that's the end. You know you have to finish it out and make sure we walk away with that victory, and so far, so good."


Yankees closer Andrew Miller collects dicey save on Tuesday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:47 pm ET) Yankees closer Andrew Miller (S, 5) came into a save situation against the Tigers on Tuesday, leading 4-1 with two on and two out, and walked two batters, allowing one run to score, before getting the final out via a strikeout for his fifth save of the season.

Reliever Chris Martin began the ninth inning for the Yankees with the 4-1 advantage, but put two runners on and got pulled for Miller.

Travis Wood gets five inning no decision for Cubs
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:46 pm ET) Cubs starter Travis Wood picked up a five-inning no-decision in Tuesday's 9-8 win over Pittsburgh.

Wood allowed three runs on four hits, striking out five and walking two. He allowed a pair of home runs and saw his ERA increase to 3.24. 

Wood had 51 strikes in 84 pitches. 

Wood's next start will be Sunday, against the Reds and Jason Marquis. 


Medical staff will determine status of Reds' Devin Mesoraco
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:41 pm ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco told reporters that his playing status moving forward will be up to the team's medical staff, per MLB.com. Mesoraco has been out of the starting lineup since April 12 because of a left hip impingement, but made a pinch-hit appearance on Tuesday against Milwaukee.

"I'm just going off what the trainers and the doctors tell me to do," Mesoraco said. "That's not my expertise. I'm worried about hitting the ball, my swing and things like that. I just kind of follow the protocol.

"You want to get back in there, which is human nature. For me, being a competitor, I want to be in there as much as I possibly can. But, those guys have a job to do and they do a good job, so I trust them."


Yankees RF Chris Young homers, goes 3 for 3 on Tuesday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:39 pm ET) Yankees right fielder Chris Young was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle against the Tigers, as he homered, doubled and singled on Tuesday. 

He also walked twice, going 3 for 3 on the night.


Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison targeting June to return
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:39 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison is still a few weeks away from throwing, but is targeting a return to the big leagues in June, according to MLB.com.

Harrison, who is recovering from spinal fusion surgery, is scheduled to throw an 80-pitch simulated game Wednesday and face live hitters next week.

"The goal for me is to be back in June sometime," Harrison said. "I've got about three or four more weeks out here and then a rehab assignment."


Cameron Maybin goes deep in Braves loss
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:39 pm ET) Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin hit a solo home run for the team's only run of the game in a 7-1 loss to the Mets. 

Maybin went 1 for 5 with his third home run and fifth RBI of the season. He improved his average to .147.


Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein takes loss after one-run, six inning outing
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:38 pm ET) Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein (1-1) allowed just one run on three hits Tuesday but did not get any run support in his six innings of work, taking the loss against the Yankees.

The only blemish for Lobstein was a first-inning RBI double he allowed to Mark Teixeira.

Lobstein walked four and struck out three in the defeat.

Lobstein's next scheduled start has not been announced as of Tuesday night.

Yankees starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi goes seven strong for first win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(10:36 pm ET) Starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) pitched into the eighth inning on Tuesday, allowing one run on eight hits to earn his first win as a Yankee.

Eovaldi struck out four and was never in any trouble until a leadoff double in the eighth inning, at which put the right hander turned it over to the bullpen.

Eovaldi will get his first taste of the Subway Series on Sunday when his next start will be at home against the Mets.

Kevin Plawecki goes 2 for 4 in Mets' debut
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:34 pm ET) Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki made his career debut in Tuesday's win over Atlanta. 

Plawecki singled in his second career at bat and finished the day 2 for 4. Plawecki also scored twice in the 7-1 win.
