Rangers SS Elvis Andrus hits second home run of season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:30 pm ET) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus hit his second home run of the season in Monday afternoon's 10-8 victory over the Indians. 

This is the first homer for Andrus since an April 14 game against the Angels. It was a three-run shot that also scored Josh Hamilton and Mitch Moreland. Andrus finished the game 2 for 4 and also hit a double. 

Andrus is now hitting .236/.293/.309. 


Dodgers' Justin Turner becoming primary option at third base
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:26 pm ET) Dodgers infielder Justin Turner hasn't been given the title just yet, but it's becoming apparent he is the team's primary third baseman over Alex Guerrero and Juan Uribe, according to the L.A. Times

Turner has started 13 of 20 games this month for Los Angeles, but has not started more than three consecutive games all year.

"We try to be three [games] on, one off and two on and one off," manager Don Mattingly said. "Trying basically to not let him go too far at one time."

Mattingly is trying to juggle the three players in his infield as much as possible, keeping them all around equal playing time. 

"It's tough with Alex and Justin right now," Mattingly said. "We're trying to put the best lineup out there. I do think as this continues on, there's going to be a point where Juan's going to be a valuable part. But right now, those two guys have been swinging the bat real well and playing solid defense."


Rangers' Prince Fielder, Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back homers
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:26 pm ET) Rangers designated hitter Prince Fielder and third baseman Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning of Monday afternoon's 10-8 win over the Indians.

Fielder was the first to go yard in the game's third at-bat of the day. His homer also scored Shin-Soo Choo as a result. Beltre came up to bat next and hit a solo shot, his sixth of the season. 

Fielder finished the game 3 for 5, marking the third game in a row he has recorded three hits in an outing. Over his past five games, Fielder is hitting .478. For the season, Fielder is now slashing .365/.417/.575. 

Beltre is now hitting .261/.298/.418. 


White Sox OF Avisail Garcia battling right knee inflammation
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:12 pm ET) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is out of the lineup again on Monday while battling right knee inflammation, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

Garcia returned to the lineup on Sunday after missing two games, but was held out again on Monday and is considered day to day with the injury. Garcia is hitting .322 with 18 RBI in 146 at-bats this season.


Indians P Shaun Marcum allows 7 earned runs in no-decision
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:08 pm ET) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum struggled with his time on the mound during Monday's 10-8 loss to the Rangers. 

Marcum only lasted 2 2/3 innings and gave up seven earned runs. He did strike out six batters but walked three and gave up four hits. Two of those went for home runs. Both of the homers occurred in the first inning. 

Marcum recorded three consecutive outs in the second but was rocked by the Rangers in the third. He now has an ERA of 6.28. He received a no-decision for his appearance in this game. 

This was Marcum's second start of the season. 

His next start is projected for Saturday against the Mariners. 


Rangers P Shawn Tolleson records another save
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:03 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Shawn Tolleson picked up his fourth save of the season in Monday afternoon's 10-8 victory over the Indians. 

Tolleson pitched a perfect ninth inning that included a strikeout. All four saves for Tolleson have come in his last four opportunities. He now has an ERA of 2.95 for the season. 


Rangers P Phil Klein struggles in team's win
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7:58 pm ET) The Rangers were able to overcome a poor performance from starting pitcher Phil Klein to defeat the Indians 10-8 on Monday afternoon. 

Klein was only able to go two innings as he allowed seven runs — six earned — while striking out two batters and walking two. He gave up home runs to Carlos Santana and Roberto Perez. 

Klein was removed from the game before the Rangers recorded an out in the third inning. This was Klein's second start of the season as he now has an ERA of 8.25. He's also made six relief appearances this year. 

Klein's next start is projected for May 30 against the Red Sox.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7:57 pm ET) Braves third baseman Alberto Callaspo was a late scratch to Monday’s lineup at the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team announced.

It is not known why Callaspo was removed from the lineup. Infielder Pedro Ciriaco will start at third base and bat seventh instead of Callaspo.

The Braves are the underdogs (+190) at the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
