by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

A's place Edward Mujica on DL, promote infielder Andy Parrino


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

In a corresponding move, Oakland selected the contract of infielder Andy Parrino from Triple-A Nashville. Parrino hit .273 (38 for 139) with six doubles, two triples, four homers, 12 RBI, 20 walks and 43 strikeouts in 38 games at Triple-A this season.

Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings still up-and-down at the plate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Hot-and-cold Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings was hot early this week. Now he's cold.

Owings has remained inconsistent all season. The latest example was a 12-for-22 outburst followed by his current 2-for-17 slide. It all adds up to a mediocre .252/.273/.367 slash line with just 10 RBI in 139 at-bats.

He is also striking out at a much higher rate in 2015 than he did a year ago. Owings has fanned 35 times.


Rival executive: Cubs willing to deal prospects Baez, Vogelbach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The Cubs appear willing to trade prospects Javier Baez and Dan Vogelbach, a rival executive told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The executive suggests it is partly because both players were drafted by a previous regime.

However, Heyman writes the reality is there are issues with Baez and Vogelbach. Baez is working on cutting down his strikeouts and getting rid of the perception he "doesn't make contact," according to one rival's assessment. One scout said Vogelbach is a "30 fielder," using scout parlance for well-below average on the 20-80 scale.

Vogelbach was the Cubs' minor-league player of the month for April. The first baseman has a .328/.449/.515/.964 slash line through 39 games for Double-A Tennessee. He has a career .289/.382/.485/.867 slash line. He was a second-round pick in 2011.

Baez was sent to the minors after struggling in spring training. He missed some time due to a personal leave, but the former top-10 prospect has a .284/.369/.405/.774 slash line through 20 games for Triple-A Iowa. He has 22 strikeouts in 20 games.


Braves 2B Jace Peterson cools off after two-week tear


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The hot streak that sent the numbers soaring for Braves second baseman Jace Peterson is decidedly over.

Peterson went on a 20-for-51 tear in late April and early May to catapult his average from .171 to .293 and increase his on-base percentage to .362. He has not gone into a slump, but he has certainly cooled off. Peterson has just five hits in 27 at-bats since.

His slash line is now at .269/.346/.328.


Cubs' Addison Russell knocks third home run on Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Cubs second baseman Addison Russell went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-0 win over the Padres on Thursday.

For the first time in their major-league careers, rookies Russell and Kris Bryant smacked home runs in the same game, while pitcher Kyle Hendricks did his part by delivering a complete-game shutout to give the Cubs a win. Russell has hit .253/.302/.434 with three home runs, 11 RBI and one stolen base in 99 at-bats.


Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis heads to 15-day DL


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The Blue Jays placed second baseman Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list due to his shoulder injury, according to Sportsnet. 

The injury has kept Travis out of the lineup since last Saturday. It has been nagging Travis, who saw his average dip from .368 on April 27 to .271. 

With Travis going on the DL, the Blue Jays are filling his roster spot by selecting the contract of second baseman Munenori Kawasaki.


Phillies 2B Chase Utley records first triple of the year on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley went 2 for 4 on Thursday, including his first triple of the season, as the Phillies fell 7-3 to the Rockies. Utley, who extended his current hitting streak to six games, has an extra-base hit five of those six games. 

Utley will look to keep the hitting streak alive on Friday when the Phillies take on the Nationals. Utley is a career 1-for-7 hitter against Max Scherzer who will be on the mound.


Padres' Cory Spangenberg returns to leadoff spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Padres second baseman Cory Spangenberg is back in the starting lineup and batting leadoff in Thursday's matchup against the Cubs.

Spangenberg took a seat on Wednesday but will return to the lineup spot he occupied in his previous five games. He's just 3 for 27 in the No. 1 slot this season but has hit .233/.305/.384 in 73 at-bats overall.

The Padres are home underdogs (+101) on Thursday, per VegasInsider.com.


Rangers' Adam Rosales draws start at second for Thursday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Rangers infielder Adam Rosales will bat eighth and play second base during Thursday's game at Boston, reports The Dallas Morning News.

Rosales and infielder Tommy Field have both been receiving playing time at second base. Rosales will go against Clay Buchholz, who he has never faced. Rosales is 3 for 18 in his last five starts.

The Rangers are the underdogs (+160) at Boston on Thursday.


Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis still out Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis remains sidelined Thursday for the game against the Angels with a shoulder ailment.

He has not played since Saturday, but he will likely not be placed on the disabled list, according to Sportsnet. The Jays could do so and backdate the injury, but that is not expected to happen.

The lingering issue had taken a toll on Travis, who has not managed a multi-hit game since April 27. His average has fallen from .368 to .271 since then.


Asdrubal Cabrera out, Nick Franklin in Rays lineup Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Struggling Rays shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is set to sit Thursday against visiting Oakland. Nick Franklin will play the position instead.

Cabrera has been steadily unproductive since mid-April. His batting average has not been higher than .225 since that point. He currently owns a stat line of .209/.264/.338 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 148 at-bats.


Giants 2B Joe Panik gets day off Thursday vs. Dodgers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) After starting six straight games, Giants second baseman Joe Panik is being held out of Thursday's lineup against the Dodgers. Panik has been hitting well lately, batting .282 with two doubles and a triple over his last 10 games. 

But, with tough lefty Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers, Panik will cede the start at second base to Matt Duffy


Phillies 2B Chase Utley moves up to second spot in order


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley keeps on moving around the batting order for manager Ryne Sandberg. On Thuresday, Utley is batting second for just the second time this season as he looks to extend his current five-game hitting streak.

Utley is 4 for 14 with one home run lifetime against the Rockies' Jorge De La Rosa, who starts on Thursday. 

Utley went 2 for 4 and scored a run on Wednesday and is still batting a disappointing .159 on the season. 


Class A coach: Yoan Moncada trying to get comfortable at plate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Red Sox prospect Yoan Moncada had a career-best three hits -- all singles -- in his third pro game for Class A Greenville on Wednesday. Moncada, who also had one run and one strikeout, went 1 for 8 in his first two games.

"Tonight, hitting right-handed, he stayed focused, especially with two strikes," Greenville hitting coach Nelson Paulino said, per MiLB.com. "He wasn't trying to do too much. He had a good night because he kept things simple."

All three of his hits Wednesday were off lefties. Moncada -- who is a switch-hitter -- is batting .429 (3 for 7) against left-handers, as opposed to .200 (1 for 5) against right-handers. 

"Right now, he's working on getting comfortable on both sides of plate, but he's making adjustments," Paulino said. "I'm trying to [help him] be comfortable and relaxed on both sides of the plate."
