Mets 1B Lucas Duda blasts sixth home run of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:34 pm ET) Mets first baseman Lucas Duda went 1 for 3 at the plate in New York's 6-3 win over the Phillies on Monday. 

Duda did his damage in the third when he belted a solo home run off of Severino Gonzalez over the right field wall, his sixth of the season. Duda is now hitting .294 with 20 RBI on the season.


Orioles' Steve Pearce smacks fifth homer Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:20 pm ET) Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-3 win over the Astros on Monday.

With the Orioles down 3-2, Pearce slugged his fifth homer of the season in the seventh inning to give his team the lead for good.

"We just capitalized on his mistakes and we hadn't been doing that all year," Pearce said about the come-from-behind win, per MASNSports.com. "Hope this is the start of the something. We have a good hitting team, but haven't been consistent all year. Now is as good a time as any to get hot. This is huge for us as a team. Our division is very tight right now so to start this series with a win against this pitcher, hope it swings some momentum our way. Never feel good about losing but we bounced back. Didn't let losing to team that was struggling affect us. Today is a new day and new series and we flushed whatever happened in Miami away."

Pearce started the game at first base but was moved to second after shortstop J.J. Hardy came out of the game with back spasms. He has hit .192/.264/.354 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 99 at-bats.

"Hopefully [Monday] is the start of something," Pearce said, per MLB.com. "We have a good team, we have a good hitting team. We just haven't had consistency all year. Right now is a good time to get hot as any. So hopefully we'll start something."


Rays place James Loney (finger) on 15-day disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2:41 pm ET) The Rays placed first baseman James Loney on the 15-day disabled list on Monday with a broken finger. Loney told the Tampa Bay Times that he would be out for 4-6 weeks with the injury. 

"That's a big blow," manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB.com. "That's a guy who hits right in the middle of our lineup. We know he is going to be down for some time, so we are going to have to call on some guys to fill that void."

Loney was removed from Sunday's game due to the injury, which was initially diagnosed as a sprain. He has hit .275/.322/.376 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 109 at-bats. Logan Forsythe is getting the start at first base on Monday with Loney sidelined.


Giants reinstate, designate 1B Travis Ishikawa


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:25 pm ET) Giants first baseman Travis Ishikawa has said he wonders where he would fit in upon his return from the disabled list.

He is still wondering, but he knows now that it's not with the big league club.

Ishikawa has been reinstated from his rehab and designated for assignment, the team has announced. A back issue has prevented him from playing all year.


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera out of lineup Monday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:50 pm ET) First baseman Miguel Cabrera was not in the Tigers lineup Monday, the first time all season the slugger has not started. Cabrera will be replaced at first base by Hernan Perez.

Manager Brad Ausmus said that Cabrera's ankle has been cranky the last few days, making Monday a good time to give the slugger an off-day following the team's flight to Oakland, the Detroit Free Press reports. He is available as a pinch-hitter against the A's.

"Just give him a day mentally," said Ausmus when asked if he considered tabbing Cabrera as the designated hitter, per MLive.com. "His ankle has been a little cranky the last few days, so it's a good time. Especially after the flight."

In addition, rookie shortstop Dixon Machado will make the first start of his MLB career and hit ninth for the Tigers. Machado was called up from Triple-A on Sunday as Jose Iglesias battles a sore knee. 


Rockies' Justin Morneau (concussion) not on road trip


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:42 pm ET) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau did not join the team for the outset of a six-game road trip as expected, the Denver Post reports.

Morneau is on the concussion disabled list, and while there's a chance he joins the team on the road later in the week, he's not ready to return from the injury just yet. He has hit .290/.317/.450 with three home runs and nine RBI in 100 at-bats.


Mets' Juan Lagares, Lucas Duda return to lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:47 am ET) Mets center fielder Juan Lagares and first baseman Lucas Duda are back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies.

Lagares, who is batting second, was scratched from Sunday's lineup with soreness in his armpit and elbow. Duda, who is batting third, was held out Sunday due to hamstring tightness.

The Mets are heavy favorites (-165) at home on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.


Orioles 1B Chris Davis not in starting lineup Monday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(10:26 am ET) Slumping first baseman Chris Davis is not in the Orioles' starting lineup Monday, the first time this season Davis has not started a game in which he was eligible. 

Davis did not start on Opening Day, which was the last game of the 25-game suspension he incurred last season for violating MLB's drug policy. 

Davis has been in a prolonged slump this season, and with the Astros starting tough left-hander Dallas Keuchel, it seemed as good as day as any to give Davis a day off. 

Steve Pearce gets the start at first base, while Everth Cabrera is in the lineup for the second straight day, this time at second base. 


Reds move Votto, Frazier, Bruce up in order Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:14 am ET) The Reds have shifted the heart of their order up, with first baseman Joey Votto batting second, third baseman Todd Frazier batting third and right fielder Jay Bruce batting fourth on Monday against the Rockies.

The Reds have tried a multitude of options in the No. 2 spot after moving Votto out of it on April 26, but they'll go with Votto, Frazier and Bruce in the second, third and fourth positions for just the second time this season, with former cleanup hitter Brandon Phillips batting leadoff.

The Reds are favorites (-140) against the Rockies on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.


Orioles 1B Chris Davis remains in funk


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(9:33 am ET) Orioles slugger Chris Davis has not been able to find the swing that made him of the AL's top power hitters, as he remains mired in a slump that has seen him go 4-for-39 over his last 11 games. 

Davis is hitting just .160 in May and he continues to rack up strikeouts, as he is tied for second in the league with 62 whiffs in 146 at-bats. Davis has eight homers and 22 RBIs on the season. 


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera blasts 11th home run of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:22 am ET) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 2 for 5 at the plate in Detroit's 10-8 loss to the Astros on Sunday.

Cabrera did his damage in the ninth inning when he crushed the first pitch he saw from Luke Gregerson over the left center field wall for a solo home run, his 11th of the season.

Cabrera is now hitting .344 with 32 RBI in 163 at-bats this season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Morneau has been out since May 14 with the injury and is hitting .290 with nine RBI in 100 at-bats this season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 3 at the plate in Arizona's 4-3 win over the Cubs on Sunday.

Goldschmidt did his damage in the third inning when he blasted a two-run shot off of Jason Hammel to deep center field, his 12th of the season.

"I've never seen a guy, basically it's just the flick of his wrist to hit it that far," D-backs manager Chip Hale said to MLB.com. "He's got such good mechanics with his hands to stay through the ball. When he gets on a run, yes, it's enjoyable to watch. We have to have guys behind him hit because what's gonna happen is he's not gonna get a whole lot of pitches to hit."

Goldschmidt continues to tear up pitching early in the season and is now hitting .333 with 38 RBI in 156 at-bats. 


White Sox DH Jose Abreu crushes seventh home run of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) White Sox designated hitter Jose Abreu went 1 for 4 at the plate in Chicago's 8-1 win over the Twins on Sunday.

Blue Jays DH Edwin Encarnacion goes deep again in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) Designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion continued his torrid May, blasting a home run into the second deck Sunday as the Blue Jays rolled to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners. 

Encarnacion's fifth-inning shot gave Toronto a 4-1 advantage. The slugger has eight of his 12 home runs in May, including three in his last four games, to move into third place in the American League in homers.

His 32 RBIs are tied for fourth in the AL, and he has driven in at least one run in six of his last 10 contests. 


Red Sox's Mike Napoli homers, drives in four runs vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Napoli demolished Angels pitching during the series, going 5 for 9 with four home runs and eight RBI in his last three games. Sunday's damage came on a two-run home run in the second inning to put the Red Sox on the board and a two-run double in the eighth.

"I've been there before and I've been in slumps in my career," Napoli said to WEEI.com. "I know I am just swing, one at-bat away from feeling good. I kept grinding. I wasn't going to give up. I knew I was struggling, but I kept at it and worked with Chili [Davis]. Got some good info from [Dustin Pedroia] and things have been going good since then."

Napoli has hit .203/.304/.420 with eight home runs and 21 RBI in 138 at-bats.
