Marlins could turn to Ichiro Suzuki to fill void in LF


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) With Christian Yelich on the 15-day disabled list with a back injury, the Marlins could turn to Ichiro Suzuki to fill that void in left field, MLB.com reports.

Suzuki has made seven starts this season for Miami, five of which have come at right field. He is hitting .257 (9 for 35) with a triple and an RBI in 16 appearances.

Although the Marlins don't have a true backup outfielder on the roster, third baseman Martin Prado has some experience as a corner outfielder. Donovan Solano has also seen some playing time at left field back in 2012.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Assuming Navarro gets into a game during this stint with the Orioles, he will be making his major-league debut.

Kendrick was acquired in a trade that sent him from the Angels to the Dodgers in exchange for Andrew Heaney. Though it's been only 15 games, the Dodgers already love him and see him as a great cubhouse fit. Kendrick is batting .321 (18 for 56) with six doubles, one triple, two homers and 10 RBI this season.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Orioles' Ryan Flaherty (groin) not in lineup Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty is not in the starting lineup Thursday after tweaking his groin running the bases on the last play of Wednesday's game, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Flaherty hopes to miss just a couple days with the injury; however, a trip to the disabled list could be in his future, masnsports.com reports. He has hit .300/.400/.600 with two home runs and four RBI in 30 at-bats.


Padres' Cory Spangenberg productive in bench role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Padres infielder Cory Spangenberg delivered key doubles in back-to-back games as a pinch hitter Tuesday and Wednesday, and he drew the start at second base and hit second in Thursday's series finale in Colorado.

"We think a lot of Spangy with the bat," manager Bud Black said before Thursday's game, per MLB.com. "He's hit wherever he's been, so that doesn't surprise us when he gets his hits, even though his average is down."

Spangenberg knocked a ground-rule double to lead off the seventh inning Tuesday, eventually coming around to score a key run. He then drove in the go-ahead run with a double Wednesday, but the Padres were unable to hang on for the win.

"He threw a backdoor cutter, sort of gave up on it. It was a good pitch," Spangenberg said of Wednesday's go-ahead at-bat. "And then he went to a two-seamer changeup, and I didn't try to do too much with it. I just took what he gave me."

The two doubles have Spangenberg's line up to .250/.250/.417 in 12 at-bats.

"We think eventually he's going to be a guy in the major leagues who's going to be an offensive producer with average and maybe some stolen bases," Black said. "There's some extra-base hits in there too. We like Cory, and we think there's a bat in there. There's some hits in there. "


Mets 2B Daniel Murphy breaks out of slump with four-RBI game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy provided most of the offense Thursday, as he drove in four runs during a 6-3 win against the Braves, running New York's win streak to 11 games. 

Murphy had a bases-clearing double off Braves ace Julio Teheran in the first inning. He added an RBI single off Luis Avilan in the seventh inning.

Thursday was the 10th time in Murphy's career he had at least four RBI in a game. He has had a career-high five RBI three times.

Thursday also marked the first time this season he had a multihit and multi-RBI game. He entered play batting just .140 through 15 games.


Royals' Omar Infante held out of Thursday's lineup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Royals second baseman Omar Infante was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox, per the Chicago Tribune.

Infante, who was pulled from Sunday's game due to a groin strain, could remain sidelined until Kansas City's weekend series against the White Sox. In the meantime, Christian Colon will fill in for Infante at second base.


Dan Uggla adjusting to bench role with Nationals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) After starting the first four games of the season, Nationals second baseman Dan Uggla has started just four times over the last 11 games. Manager Matt Williams said Uggla is adjusting to his role as a bench player.

"It's never easy. Being an everyday player his whole career, it's not easy to learn how to do it," Williams said, per MASNsports.com. "The objective when he walks up there is to be him and not try to be something that he is not. His thought process when he goes up there is (to) get a good one to hit and whack it like he always does.

"He'll be aggressive from the first pitch, like he always hit. It's been the last three games, but it doesn't mean it'll be all the time either. He'll get some starts as well. Last night, we needed to get T-Mo (Tyler Moore) an at-bat, so we got him in there."

Uggla is batting .129 (4 for 31) with one RBI, two doubles, three walks and seven strikeouts.


Athletics 2B Zobrist a no-go Thursday; Sogard set to start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Athletics left fielder/second baseman Ben Zobrist is starting to pile up the absences with a knee ailment. He is again sidelined Thursday against the host Angels.

Zobrist sustained the injury Sunday and has not played since. He could be available off the bench if he makes it through pregame activities without any setbacks, per MLB.com. Eric Sogard is manning second base in his place.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Cubs premier second base prospect Javier Baez is expected to return to extended spring training Thursday after a bereavement period following the death of his sister, per ESPN.

Baez had opened the season with Triple-A Iowa, managing just nine hits in 52 at-bats with 20 strikeouts. He has not played since April 9. He struggled in the big leagues a year ago, compiling a .169/.227/.324 slash line in 213 at-bats with the Cubs.


Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko sits for second straight game Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Ruiz (.184), Howard (.196) and Utley (.120) are all batting below the Mendoza Line (.200). Galvis is batting .300 (15 for 50) with one double, one triple, one home run and eight RBI through 14 games.

Cubs rookie Addison Russell singles for first hit in majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Cubs rookie infielder Addison Russell connected for his first major-league hit Wednesday against the Pirates. He singled to center with one out in the third inning.

"Today, I was a little bit more relaxed and I just stayed with my approach and it worked out for me that first at-bat," Russell said, per MLB.com. "It feels really good to get that first one out of the way. We'll just have to see where we go from here."

Russell is only 1 for 9 with four strikeouts in his first two games. Fellow rookie Kris Bryant went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts in his MLB debut last week, but he has since hit safely in five straight games and is batting .409. Russell is hoping to follow a similar path.

"I think it's a good stepping stone for the future," Russell said. "I can build off this and see where it takes me."

Padres' Yangervis Solarte swats second home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-4 loss to the Rockies Wednesday.

Solarte drew the start at second base Wednesday for the first time in more than a week and batted second, swatting his home run in the top of the first inning. His presence in the lineup sent Jedd Gyorko to the bench.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wong smacked a two-run home run in the second inning to help build a lead that stretched to 5-0 by the top of the third, but the Nationals were able to score five runs in the bottom of the third to even the score. The second baseman then broke the tie with an RBI double in the eighth inning before the Cardinals tacked on another run in the ninth.

"He’s an exciting player. Every aspect of the game," manager Mike Matheny said after the game, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "We want to see him constantly pushing to show that. And looking for opportunities to show that. And when he does, man, it’s special. When you’re having one of those days go ahead and shine."

Wong had been struggling with the bat coming into the Nationals series, but back-to-back three-hit games have boosted his line to .325/.396/.475 to go with one home run, five RBI and two stolen bases in 40 at-bats.
