Padres' Jedd Gyorko on sporadic playing time: 'It's always tough'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:12 pm ET) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko was out of the starting lineup for the fifth time in six games Monday, and he has been working with hitting coaches Mark Kotsay and Alonzo Powell to jump-start his lagging bat, U-T San Diego reports.

"It's always tough," Gyorko said about the sporadic playing time. "But at the same time, we're trying to win games, obviously. So when the opportunity presents itself, you've just got to go out there and perform. I think that's the main thing for now."

Gyorko has hit just .149/.231/.191 in 47 at-bats.

"We need to get Jedd going," manager Bud Black said before Gyorko's start Sunday.


Cubs' Addison Russell singles, scores run in Wrigley debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:55 am ET) Cubs rookie second baseman Addison Russell made his debut at Wrigley Field Monday, going 1 for 3 with a single and a run scored in his team's 4-0 win over the Pirates.

"It's great to have them here to watch me play on the big stage," Russell said of his parents, Wayne and Milany Russell, per MLB.com. "It's kind of humbling to remember where you came from. It's kind of like a warm feeling. They helped me get to this point. I'm glad they're here."

Manger Joe Maddon cautioned the need to be patient with Russell, who played just 14 games at Triple-A and was working on his footwork with infield coach Gary Jones before the game then committed a fielding error Monday night.

"You've got to put your scout's cap on and visualize what this could look like," Maddon said. "Once he can really exhale and just catch his breath, he'll start hitting the baseball."

Russell is just 4 for 25 with two doubles, four RBI and 13 strikeouts in six games.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The Mets have optioned infielder Danny Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas after four games, the team announced Monday. Muno was moved back to the minors to make room from pitcher Rafael Montero.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy went 1 for 4 at the plate in New York's 3-1 win over the Marlins Monday. Murphy was quiet at the plate all night before stepping in the box in the ninth inning against Steve Cishek.

Murphy belted a 1-1 pitch from Cishek over the right field wall for a three-run home run to give the Mets the lead and eventual win. It was Murphy's second homer of the season and 14th RBI.

"I'm not going to wake up tomorrow, no matter what I do, and be hitting .290," Murphy said to ESPN.com. "So it's just one at-bat at a time. That's all I can control right now."

He is hitting .174 in 69 at-bats this season. Murphy is working on moving closer to the plate to find more success.

"We've been playing with that and trying to get comfortable in there," Murphy said. "It's always nice to hit some balls hard once you make an adjustment. So hopefully it's something we'll continue working on. One at-bat at a time. I know it's a cliché. But I'm not going to go 15-for-4 tomorrow."

"He's just a series or two away from getting hot and getting to where he wants to be," Sandberg said. "He's stung the ball."

Utley has two home runs and nine RBI on 58 at-bats this season.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/26/2015) Slumping Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy finally found a bit of an offensive groove Sunday, going 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBIs, but it wasn't enough to keep the Mets from losing the rubber game of the Subway Series, 6-4, to the Yankees. 

Murphy hit his first RBI double in the first inning as the Mets opened up a 2-0 advantage. He registered another clutch hit in the third, this time driving in a run to close the Mets' deficit to 5-4.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"Lack of spring training, more than anything," Collins said Sunday.

Murphy took just 17 at-bats in spring training with a right hamstring injury and has just two hits in his last 19 at-bats entering Sunday's game. Collins remains in Murphy's corner for the long haul.

"He's got a track record," Collins said. "I'm not worried. We've just got to get him going."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I knew coming into the series that I was going to DH Danny Muno today," manager Terry Collins said. "And I really don't want to tell you why, because I don't want them to know why. But there's a reason why he's in there today."

The Mets are underdogs (+135) against their in-town rivals Sunday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Cubs second baseman Addison Russell went 1 for 4 with a three-run double in his team's 5-2 win over the Reds Sunday.

Russell bases-clearing double extended his team's lead to 5-0 in the fourth inning and provided the margin of victory for the Cubs.

"It’s just a stepping stone," Russell said of his hit after the game, per MLB.com. "I need to capitalize on that and bring it to the next game."

The double was the second in three games for Russell, who has hit just .136/.136/.227 with 12 strikeouts in 22 at-bats.

"He’s going to keep coming on offensively," Maddon said. "Defensively, he’ll get more used to playing where he’s supposed to be [at second] and that’s when you’ll see even better play at second base."


Marlins' Dee Gordon racks up four hits vs. Nationals Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I think, in general, we're seeing a lot of pitches," Maddon said. "That's not a bad thing. Every hitter goes up there and we're just not up there hacking, we're working mindful at-bats and that's fun to watch."

"It's not just about hits, folks," said Maddon. "If anybody wants to make it just about hits, fine. But if you want to play that game, you're going to lose a lot. You've got to catch it. He's a very good baserunner and runs well. He does a lot of things to help us win games."
