by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/26/2015) First baseman Chris Davis doubled, homered and collected three RBI on Sunday to help lead the Orioles past the Red Sox.

Davis broke Sunday's win wide open with a two-run double in the third inning and added a solo homer in the sixth.

Davis now has two homers and six RBI over his last three games.

Miguel Cabrera goes deep for Tigers in win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 4 in Sunday's win over Cleveland. Cabrera drove in three runs, including a two-run home run in the sixth inning. 

"You don't have to do too much," Cabrera said to MLB.com. "If you're trying to say, 'OK, I'm trying to hit a double, home run,' it's not going to happen. When you've got speed in front of you and they get on base, you have to take advantage, make something happen. We did that a lot today and it worked for us."

Cabrera is now hitting .377 with three home runs and 13 RBI this season. 


Albert Pujols to DH for Angels on Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) The Angels flip-flopped positions for two regulars on Sunday. Albert Pujols, who has started at first base in 17 of the team's 18 games, will play designated hitter. 

C.J. Cron, who has 13 starts at DH, will play first base. 

The Angels are -144 favorites at home against Texas. 


Caleb Joseph, Alejandro De Aza, Travis Snider out of Orioles' lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) The Orioles will rest three starters in Sunday's game against Boston. 

Catcher Caleb Joseph, left fielder Alejandro De Aza and right fielder Travis Snider, who have combined for 36 starts this season at their respective positions, are all out of the lineup.

Ryan Lavarnway gets his fifth start of the year at catcher, batting eighth. Delmon Young is in right, batting fourth. It's his fourth start of the year but third in four days.

Steve Pearce will play left, starting for the third time this year. He's batting sixth. 

The Orioles are +100 money line underdogs at home against Boston. 


Athletics expect call up Max Muncy to play mostly third base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Athletics manager Bob Melvin likes what he's got in prospect Max Muncy, who played in his first game after being called up Saturday. Melvin expects to primarily use Muncy at third base with his infield battling a multitude of injuries, reports MLB.com.

"He can play a little first, he can play a little third, and with [Eric Sogard] being able to play all the positions, it's probably going to be mostly at third," said Melvin. "He's a grinder. He made an impression right away. You know he can hit, and he's coming in here swinging the bat well. We've always felt he was quite the hitter.

"Moved him over to third to make him a little bit more versatile, especially with [Matt] Olson in the system. We like what we saw this spring."

Muncy went 1 for 4 in the game with a single and a strikeout.


Twins' Paul Molitor considering Joe Mauer in leadoff role


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Twins manager Paul Molitor is looking for a spark at the top of the batting order. He thinks that spark may be in his top player, Joe Mauer, according to MLB.com.

"I had him potentially doing that," Molitor said. "I had him also hitting second behind [Brian] Dozier. There were points made regarding Dozier's propensity to be able to score runs last year and Joe hit behind him quite a bit, so we talked about different combinations of how to get those guys in there."

Mauer has never hit lead off in his career.

"You can go to your sabermetrics experts and a lot of times they're going to come up with Joe at the top of the lineup, and I understand that. How that would play in terms of him getting a chance to get hits with men in scoring position and do some other things that he's been doing pretty well, I'm not sure."

Mauer is hitting .271 with five RBI in 59 at-bats this season.


Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli hits first homer of season


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/25/2015) Mike Napoli got off the schneid on Saturday, hitting his first home run of the season on his 57th at-bat in the Red Sox loss to the Orioles.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Rays' James Loney hits homer on Friday after return from DL


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) James Loney returned from the disable list on Friday and hit his first home run, a two-run shot, since Sept. 9 in the Rays' victory over the Blue Jays.

"It's fun being back out there again," Loney said. "I'm just glad it's over." 

Loney's 15-day stint for a strained right oblique was his first-ever trip to the DL.


Blue Jays' Justin Smoak hits second HR in three games in Friday's loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Orioles 1B Steve Pearce: 'I've been like a one-man rally killer'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce is not complaining about his recent time on the bench. In fact, he understands why Buck Showalter has been opting to play others over him.

Pearce owns a .167 batting average with two homers, four RBI and .292 slugging percentage. That translates into a lot of blown opportunities on a team that has been battering pitchers much of the year.

"I've been like a one-man rally killer this past week," he told masnsports.com. "It's been frustrating and I think Buck (Showalter) sees I'm frustrated. I'm not swinging like I'm capable. But it comes around, it always does. Just want to get back to how I know I can play."

How he knows he can play was how he played in a breakout 2014 in which he batted .293 with 21 taters and recorded an OPS of .930.

Pearce has just three at-bats since April 21.


Joe Mauer to DH for Twins, Kennys Vargas at first


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Joe Mauer and Kennys Vargas swapped positions for the Twins on Saturday. Mauer, who has started 14 of the team's 16 games at first base, will play designated hitter. Vargas, who has been the DH for 13 games, will play first. 

It's the second start at first base this season for Vargas and Mauer's third time at DH. 

The Twins are +145 money line underdogs at Seattle. 


Rays call up Everett Teaford, DFA Allan Dykstra


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) The Rays called up pitcher Everett Teaford from Triple-A Durham on Saturday. 

Teaford was 1-1 with a 4.20 ERA at Durham this season. He hasn't pitched in the Majors since he was with Kansas City in 2013. 

To make room on the roster for Teaford on the 40-man roster, the Rays designated first baseman Allan Dykstra for assignment. 

Dykstra hit .129 in 31 at bats for the Rays this season. 


Tigers' Miguel Cabrera draws four walks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Miguel Cabrera was walked his first four times up on Saturday, as the Tigers beat Cleveland, 4-1. 

Cabrera became the first Tiger to draw four walks in a game since Matt Tuiasosopo on May 19, 2013. Three of the walks were intentional. He was the first Tiger to get three intentional walks in a game since he did it on August 15, 2010, and he's the first MLB player to do it since Adam Dunn on June 5, 2013.

"He's an unusual hitter," manager Terry Francona said to MLive.com. "Sometimes it depends on the situation, the outs, who's pitching. There's all kinds of things that go into it."

Cabrera made an out in his only at bat of the day. 

"They are either going to pitch him delicately or they're going to walk him," right fielder Rajai Davis said. "It is what it is. They were very careful. They know what he did in Cleveland and they obviously remember it."


Rougned Odor misses first start of season for Rangers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor was held out of the starting lineup for the first time this season on Saturday.

Odor, who has started all 16 games at second, was replaced in the lineup by Adam Rosales, who will hit eighth in the order.

The Rangers are +145 money line underdogs at the Angels.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Astros DH Evan Gattis is not listed in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game at Oakland. After 11 straight starts at DH, Gattis heads to the bench, replaced at DH by first baseman Chris Carter

The Astros are +105 money line underdogs at Oakland. 


Athletics place Ben Zobrist on disabled list, call up Max Muncy


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) The Athletics placed Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury, the team announced on Saturday. Zobrist has battled the injury for several days and tested the knee at designated hitter on Friday night. 

To replace Zobrist on the roster, the A's called up Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville. Muncy will make his Major League debut on Saturday, starting at third base and batting seventh for Oakland.

White Sox 1B Jose Abreu survives a bit of an injury scare Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu gave the front office and coaching staff a scare Friday when he did a body slam into the infield dirt following a rundown in the third inning. Abreu laid motionless for a few moments after tripping over Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar at second base.

“When he ran down, I think he landed on the foot of the base on his ribs,” manager Robin Ventura said, per ESPN. “It kind of knocked the wind out him, and it was cold. At first I thought it was his wrist or something like that. I think there were a lot of things going on at the same time.”

Ventura added he had "a heart attack" when he saw his star first baseman lying on the ground.

“I'm just glad he's fine. Once he got over that, you could tell he was fine," Ventura said.

Abreu, who stayed in the game, went 2 for 4 before the game was suspended after eight innings due to inclement weather. It is expected to resume Saturday afternoon.

The 2014 AL Rookie of the Year is batting .317 with five home runs and 13 RBI.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira connected for a pair of two-run homers Friday in the Yankees' win over the Mets.

Teixeira now has four home runs in his last five games.

"I’m very thankful for the health, and it is what I envisioned, hitting more home runs and driving the ball," Teixeira said. "...being able to feel strong and healthy, and take my normal swing ... When you’re driving the ball and hitting home runs, pitchers are more careful.”

His seven homers on the season puts him second in the American League (Nelson Cruz, 9).

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Loney has been dealing with an oblique injury, while a shouler injury has kept Smyly sidelined. He is set to make his season debut Friday against the Blue Jays.

"He's worked really hard to get back here, he's chomping at the bit, and we have to be smart with him," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB Network Radio. "We'll be cautious."

Meanwhile, with Smyly and Loney no longer on the disabled list, the team sent Mike Mahtook and Allan Dykstra to their Triple-A affiliate.


Royals' Hosmer collects three hits, drives in winning run Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 3 for 5 with a walk, two doubles and the winning RBI in his team's 3-2, 13-inning win over the White Sox Thursday.

The first baseman has hit .339/.444/.475 with one home run and 10 RBI in 59 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Smyly will make his season debut against the Blue Jays on Friday after opening the season on the disabled list due to a shoulder injury suffered this spring.

"Last time I faced them, I had the best game I've played," Smyly said, per MLB.com. "But I'm sure they could hit quite a few home runs, too, if I'm a little bit off. They have a lot of power up and down the lineup. A lot of righties. They're a very, very dangerous lineup. But baseball's crazy, man. You never know what's going to happen. It could work out well, it could work out bad. You just have to go out there and compete. That's all there is to it."

Loney has been dealing with an oblique injury but was able to serve as the designated hitter in his rehab debut Thursday.
