Player News
Mets' Vic Black headed for more tests
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:03 pm ET) Mets pitcher Vic Black will undergo an MRI due to continued soreness in the shoulder and neck region, The Star-Ledger reports.

General manager Sandy Alderson indicated that Black is also dealing with another issue he can't pinpoint, so the team will turn to more testing to try and discover the issue. Black had been on a Class A rehab assignment but appears to be headed for a longer time on the disabled list than previously believed.


Mets expected to call up C Kevin Plawecki
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:58 pm ET) The Mets are expected to promote Triple-A catcher Kevin Plawecki after Travis d'Arnaud suffered a fractured hand Sunday, the New York Daily News reports.

"Can he handle it here?" manager Terry Collins said after Sunday's win, his team's eighth straight. "We’ll likely find out."

Plawecki was pulled from his minor-league game early Sunday, all but confirming that he'll be on his way up to New York to serve as the team's No. 1 catcher while d'Arnaud is sidelined. Plawecki is just 8 for 35 this season but hit .309/.365/.460 with 11 home runs and 64 RBI in 376 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A last season.


X-Rays negative for Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (rib cage)
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4:54 pm ET) X-Rays for Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer revealed no fracture in his rib-cage area, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Mercer left Sunday's game against the Brewers after getting hit with a pitch from Matt Garza in his rib-cage area while attempting to bunt.

The pitch caught him in the left ribs just below the chest.

Mercer's status for Monday against the Cubs remains questionable.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4:49 pm ET) Nationals center fielder Denard Span (core muscle) returned to the lineup for his first game of the season on Sunday and collected a single and a run scored. 

Span had undergone surgery on his core muscle in March and was activated from the 15-day disable list before the game.


Pirates' Mark Melancon earns second save Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:43 pm ET) Pirates closer Mark Melancon picked up his second save Sunday, giving up one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 5-2 win over the Brewers.

Melancon has had his issues over the first two weeks, but he was able to work quickly Sunday, picking up a save after throwing just eight pitches. He owns a 5.06 ERA and 3:1 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.


Nats closer Drew Storen gets out ninth-inning trouble for save
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4:43 pm ET) Nationals closer Drew Storen (S, 4) yielded two singles in the ninth inning but was able to hold the Phillies scoreless and collect the save on Sunday.

Storen got pinch hitter Chase Utley to ground out back to him for the final out.

Pirates' Gerrit Cole strikes out six in win vs. Brewers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:41 pm ET) Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole earned a win Sunday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out six in his team's 5-2 victory over the Brewers.

Cole (2-0) delivered his second straight quality start despite running into trouble in the second inning, giving up back-to-back singles to open the inning and watching the Brewers erase his 2-0 lead. The Pirates were able to hand Cole another lead in the bottom of the third, and he didn't let that one slip away, facing the minimum amount of batters from the third inning through the end of his start.

Cole owns a 3.18 ERA and 20:5 K:BB ratio in 17 innings. He's slated to face the Diamondbacks Friday.
