Brewers OF Khris Davis dealing with torn meniscus, needs surgery
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:37 pm ET) Brewers outfielder Khris Davis suffered a torn mensicus on Saturday that will require surgery, he told reporters after the game.

Davis left Saturday's game after taking an awkward swing in the first inning and was said to be dealing with knee soreness. It is unclear how long the injury will keep him out of action.


Diamondbacks' Jeremy Hellickson evens record at 3-3
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7:35 pm ET) Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson earned the win on Saturday at Milwaukee, allowing two runs over six innings. 

Hellickson evened his record at 3-3 and cut his ERA to 5.08. He allowed five hits, walked a batter and struck out three.

Hellickson's next start will be Thursday, against the Mets


Marlins RF Giancarlo Stanton slugs two home runs on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:29 pm ET) Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is officially the Mets' worst night mare. Stanton drilled two home runs on Saturday, as the Marlins won 9-5. 

Stanton first launched a solo-shot off Jonathon Niese in the second inning to put the Fish up 3-1. Then, with the Marlins already up 7-5, Stanton added a two-run, 455-foot home run in the ninth inning.

Overall, Stanton went 2 for 4 with the two bombs, as his batting average now rests at .232 for the season.

Stanton now has 15 longballs this year, with five of them coming against the Mets.


Diamondbacks' Addison Reed makes adjustments, may return to closer
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7:28 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Addison Reed lost the closer's job after giving up a grand slam on May 13.

Since losing the job, Reed has worked with Diamondback coaches to fix flaws in his mechanics. Among the most noticeable adjustments, Reed got rid of his leg kick and instead uses a slide step. 

"Everything feels good," Reed said, per MLB.com. "Each time I've gone out it's felt better every time. Now I'm not thinking about anything other than trying to throw strikes. Not thinking anything about mechanics, just going out there trying to throw strikes."

Manager Chip Hale is satisfied with what he's seen and indicated that Reed would get to pitch in save situations again in the near future.  


SS Zack Cozart's double helps Reds rally to win
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:27 pm ET) Shortstop Zack Cozart's lone hit of the day was a big one, as his eighth-inning double proved to be the difference as the Reds rallied to beat the Nationals 8-5 on Saturday. 

Sitting on an 0-for-3 day, Cozart connected with two outs, driving a ball deep to center to help erase a 5-4 defict and spark a four-run eighth that propeled the Reds to their first back-to-back wins since May 12-14. 

Cozart now has 21 RBIs on the year and is hitting .271.


Marlins SP Tom Koehler gets no-decision on Saturday vs. Mets
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:24 pm ET) Marlins starter Tom Koehler struggled in a no-decision on Saturday, as the Marlins topped the Mets 9-5. Koehler was unable to get out of the fourth, as he went 3 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on seven hits. Koehler had trouble with his control, as he walked four and struck out just one. Just 39 of his 66 pitches went for strikes on the afternoon.

Most of the runs against him came as part of a four-run fourth inning. Koehler's ERA rose to 4.01 with the sub-par performance. He'll look to right the ship in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Coloardo. 


Mets SP Jonathon Niese gets roughed up by the Marlins Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:19 pm ET) The struggles for Mets starter Jonathon Niese continued on Saturday. Niese managed to go just four innings in a no-decision against the Marlins. It was his shortest start since July of last season. The left-hander surrendered five runs (four earned) on seven hits. He struck out three and did not issue a walk. Niese labored in this one, needing 82 pitches to get through the four innings.

Niese gave up a solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the third inning, and a two-run shot to J.T. Realmuto in the fourth. His offense was able to get him off the hook, as Niese picked up the no-decision in the eventual 9-5 loss.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Niese's two-seam fastball hasn't been working, and that he's never seen Niese's location be off so consistently.

"I'm concerned," Collins said, per ESPN.com.

Niese (3-5) has now allowed 20 earned runs in his last four starts, watching his ERA climb from 2.49 to 4.42 over that stretch.

He'll try to turn things around in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Arizona. 


Orioles SP Bud Norris to pitch in Triple-A on Tuesday
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:11 pm ET) Orioles starter Bud Norris, who is still recovering from a nasty case of bronchitis that caused him to lose 10 pounds, will make a rehab start at Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, per CSN Mid-Atlantic. 

Norris, who made a rehab start last week at Double-A, was considered for a start on Wednesday, but the Birds decided that he could use another outing to build up his stamina. Norris went 1-4 with a 9.88 ERA in six starts before going on the disabled list.


Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz to throw off mound on Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:10 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz is scheduled to throw off the mound on Sunday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Feliz, who has been on the 15-day DL since May 20 with an abscess near his arm pit, has begun throwing, but has not been on the mound since going on the disabled list.


Phillies' Cesar Hernandez knocks pinch-hit home run on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:09 pm ET) Phillies infielder Cesar Hernandez launched a pinch-hit, three-run home run on Saturday, but it was not enough as the Rockies won by a score of 5-2. Hernandez came on in the eighth inning to pinch-hit for the pitcher, and took the Rockies' Rafael Betancourt deep for his first home run of the season.

His solo shot on Saturday was his first home run in over a year, as his last home run came on May 17, 2014. In limited playing time this season, Hernandez is hitting .250 over 78 at-bats.
