Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson finally gets a day off Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(2:18 pm ET) Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson will get his first day off this season, as he is being held out of the lineup on Friday against the Mariners. Donaldson has hit well lately, batting .270 with two home runs and seven RBI over his last 10 games, batting solely out of the top two spots in the lineup.

It appears to just be a day of rest for Donaldson, who has started each of the team's first 43 games this year.

Danny Valencia will get the start at the hot corner, while Ezequiel Carrera will move up to the leadoff spot the batting order. 


Angels 3B David Freese hits 2-run HR against Blue Jays


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Angels third baseman David Freese hit his eighth home run of the season in Thursday night's 8-4 loss to the Blue Jays. 

Freese hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning that also scored Mike Trout. Freese went 2 for 4 and also had an RBI double. He's entered the game hitting .217 from the start of the month of May until the start of this game. 

Freese now holds a slash line of .233/.287/.440. 


Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos belts fourth home run Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) After his four-RBI game on Wednesday, Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos had another big day against the Astros on Thursday. Castellanos went 1 for 4 with a two-out, two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth to give the Tigers an early 2-0 lead. It was his fourth bomb of the season.

The young third baseman is hitting the ball well lately, hitting safely in eight of his last 10 games. 


Conor Gillaspie not in White Sox lineup against Indians


(5/21/2015) Third baseman Conor Gillaspie is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Indians.

Gillaspie will be replaced by Gordon Beckham, who is starting for just the 10th time this season.

Gillaspie is hitting .261/.303/.424 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 92 at-bats this season.


Mariners 3B Kyle Seager ejected after arguing called strike


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager was ejected from Thursday afternoon's game after arguing a called third strike against the Orioles. 

Seager was tossed in the fifth inning. Willie Bloomquist entered the game for Seager at third base. 

Seager finished the game 2 for 3 with a run scored. He's now hitting .264/.308/.419 for the season. 


Farrell: Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval should play Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) John Farrell has declared that a sore calf that had Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval sidelined for the last two games won't have him out Friday against the visiting Angels.

Sandoval took a hit-by-pitch to the calf and knee area Tuesday.


Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval still sidelined with sore knee


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval remains out of the lineup on Thursday against the Rangers. Sandoval is still batting a sore knee after being hit by a pitch on Tuesday. 

Brock Holt will draw the start at the hot corner for the second straight game. The team has not provided any further details on Sandoval's status, so he should still be considered day-to-day for now.


Twins activate Tim Stauffer, option Doug Bernier to Triple-A


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The Twins announced that right-handed pitcher Tim Stauffer has been reinstated from the disabled list and will be available for Friday’s game in Chicago against the White Sox. Stauffer missed 19 games with a right intercostal strain. He allowed three earned runs over five innings of work while rehabbing for Triple-A Rochester.

In a corresponding move, Minnesota optioned infielder Doug Bernier to Triple-A Rochester. Bernier appeared in four games, hitting .200 (1 for 5) during his stint with the big-league club.


Angels prospect Kaleb Cowart bouncing back at the plate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The career of Angels third base prospect Kaleb Cowart appeared to be going backward. A demotion from Double-A to Class A tends to give that impression.

But Cowart is trying to make the best of it this year with Inland Empire. He reverted to his former batting stance, which features his hands farther away from his body and a more upright position. The results speak for themselves.

Cowart is not tearing the cover off the ball, but he has certainly improved. After an April in which he managed a slash line of .179/.229/.285, he is at .254/.338/.441 in May. And he has been particularly hot lately with a .308 mark in his last 10 games.

"[The stance] is something I wanted to go back to because it's when I was best in my career," Cowart told the Orange County Register.

The 22-year-old Cowart peaked in 2012, when he totaled 16 home runs and 103 RBI at two different minor-league levels.


Tigers' Castellanos on go-ahead hit: 'I've been waiting for that all season'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters he started seeing a "noticeable difference" in Nick Castellanos approach at the plate during batting practice prior to Wednesday's game against Milwaukee. Castellanos backed that up with a pivotal bases-clearing triple in the eighth inning to lead his club to a 5-2 victory, snapping a three-game losing streak

"I've been waiting for that all season," Castellanos said, per MLive.com. "I needed it. The team needed it. The organization, the fans needed it. Everybody needed it. And I'm just blessed that I was able to deliver it."

Castellanos is hitting .278 (15 for 54) with a double, two triples, a home run and nine RBI over his last 14 games, raising his batting average from .216 to .240 on the season.

"Lately, I've been trying to get really mechanical, trying to have the perfect swing," Castellanos said. "You see the way J.D. (Martinez) swings and you see the way Miguel (Cabrera) swings and you see how good of hitters they are, obviously you want to hit like them, because it's no secret why they have success.

"But Newie and Wally made a good point. They said, 'Hey, they're great at what they do. You're great the way you do it. You don't have to try to adjust to the way they do to have success. You can have success the way you hit.' So that's what I did. All through coming up, I've always been kind of tall, free and easy, and I went back to that. To be honest, I felt pretty comfortable."


Tigers' Andrew Romine gets the start at SS over Jose Iglesias


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Andrew Romine will get the start in shortstop for the Tigers on Thursday in place of Jose Iglesias, who is likely getting a scheduled day off against Houston, per MLive.com.

Romine is batting ninth in the lineup in his first start since May 10. He is hitting .346 (9 for 26) with three RBI this season.

Detroit is favored (-160) at home against Houston.


Cherington: I won't force Sandoval to hit exclusively from left side


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said he won't force third baseman Pablo Sandoval to hit exclusively from the left side, despite his recent cold spell, per WEEI.com.

Sandoval holds a .365 batting average from the left side of the plate, but only a .049 average (2 for 41) from the right side. With the Giants last season, Sandoval hit .199 from the right side. He is a .260 career hitter from the right side.

"I'm not sure it is anybody's job," Cherington said. "I think Pablo knows what he needs to do to be successful. He's obviously been one of the better left-handed hitters in the game this year. I think he's had in his history, he's always been a little better, he's always been stronger from the left side.

"But, he's got several years where he's been at least fine or good from the right side and if he just gets back to his career norm from the right side to go along with what he is as a left-handed hitter because if you're a switch-hitter, if you had to choose your strong side you'd choose the left side and that's what he is. If he gets back to his career norm from the right side then he's going to be fine."

Sandoval took a pitch off his left knee on Tuesday, and was unable to play on Thursday. He is still receiving treatment on his knee and has been deemed day to day moving forward.


White Sox's Conor Gillaspie slugs second home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 4-3 loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

After the White Sox fell behind 4-1 in the top of the seventh, Gillaspie was able to get a run back in the bottom half of the inning with his shot to right field. It was just the second home run of the season for Gillaspie, who has hit .261/.303/.424 with 10 RBI in 92 at-bats.


Royals 3B Mike Moustakas goes 3 for 4 in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas collected three hits during Wednesday night's 7-1 victory over the Reds. 

Moustakas recorded one double and two singles in the game. His double marked his 10th of the season. He went 3 for 4 in the game. 

This is his second game in a row going 3 for 4 in the Reds. So far in the series, Moustakas is 6 for 8 with three doubles and two RBI. He's hitting .333/.387/.490 for the season. 

"I quite frankly and honestly can't say I have seen a player in the big leagues make as big an improvement as Mike Moustakas has made from last year to this year," Royals manager Ned Yost said, via MLB.com. "And it's not even close. It's not even close. You see good players that come in, but to have to completely reinvent himself and change his game offensively, I've never seen it before."


Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos snags four RBI in win on Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos went 2 for 4 in Detroit's 5-2 win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

Castellanos did his damage in the eighth inning when he stepped to the plate with the bases loaded. Castellanos ripped a shot off of Jonathan Broxton down the right field line, scoring all three runners and landing him at third with a triple. Castellanos, who also picked up an RBI on a fielder's choice, is now hitting .240 with 17 RBI in 146 at-bats this season.


A's 3B Lawrie goes 3 for 4 with a double for second straight day


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie went 3 for 4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Astros. It's the second consecutive three-hit performance for the first-year Athletic, as he brought his batting average up to a season-high .280.

Lawrie has been rather quiet in the power department, owning just two home runs on the season so far. But he gets on base regularly and has been a productive member of the A's offense.


Astros' 3B Luis Valbuena has seven game hitting streak


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) After going 1 for 4 on Wednesday, Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena has exactly one hit in each of his last seven games, covering 25 at-bats in that span. Valbuena does have three home runs during the streak, however and has been a consistent presence in the Astros' lineup in 2015. 

Farrell: Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval day-to-day with sore knee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) John Farrell has stated that the knee of Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval remains sore and that he's day-to-day, per the team website.

Sandoval will continue to get treatment and stay off his feet until his knee allows greater movement.

"Not a whole lot of swelling, but obviously a bone bruise," John Farrell reported to WEEI.


Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval a no-go Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is cold at the plate, but at least he's been able to go up there hacking. That will probably not be the case Wednesday against the Rangers - he is out with a knee injury sustained on a hit-by-pitch Tuesday night.

Perhaps Sandoval can use the break. He is 2-for-21 in his last six starts as his average has shrunk from .326 on May 3 to .270.


Twins' Trevor Plouffe hits two-run home run in win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe hit a two-run home run in the second inning of Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh. 

Plouffe went 2 for 4 and went deep for his sixth homer of the year. He also hit his sixth double of the season and now has 20 RBI. 


Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson crushes ninth home run of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson went 1 for 3 at the plate in Toronto's 3-2 loss to the Angels on Tuesday. 

Donaldson led things off in the first with a solo home run off of Hector Santiago, his ninth of the season. He later brought home another run on a sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Donaldson is now hitting .316 with 28 RBI in 158 at-bats this season.


Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) leaves Tuesday's game after HBP


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval left Tuesday's game in Texas in the seventh inning after getting hit by a pitch in the left knee, reports ESPN.

Sandoval was evaluated and it was determined he suffered no structural damage, per the Boston Herald.

"Everything is clean as far as that goes," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com. "Likely, he's going to be sore. We'll check him when he comes in."

Brock Holt ran for Sandoval and remained in the game to play third base.

Sandoval ended his day 1 for 3.


Angels' Matt Joyce in, David Freese at DH Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Angels left fielder Matt Joyce is back in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Blue Jays, while third baseman David Freese is serving as the designated hitter for the third time this season.

Joyce was a late scratch on Monday but is ready to roll one day later. He said he was scratched because he thought the team was playing a night game on Monday rather than during the day, the Los Angeles Times reports. Joyce has hit just .143/.180/.219 in 105 at-bats.

Freese is getting a break from starting at third base for the third time this season. He'll be replaced at third base by Taylor Featherston, who is making his third start at the position.

The Angels are underdogs (+112) in Toronto on Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Rangers' Joey Gallo makes outfield debut Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Rangers third-base prospect Joey Gallo made his organizational debut in the outfield on Monday, playing left field for Double-A Frisco.

General manager Jon Daniels indicated that Gallo will continue to play third base but will receive more time in the outfield moving forward, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"Increasing his versatility as much as anything," Daniels said.

Gallo has been blocked at third base at the major-league level by Adrian Beltre, but if he proves ready to see time in the outfield, it could accelerate his timetable to the majors. He has hit .316/.442/.592 with four home runs and 15 RBI in 76 at-bats with Frisco.


Orioles' Manny Machado yet to hit stride vs. LHP


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has hit just .217/.269/.304 in 23 at-bats against left-handers this season.

Machado struggled against southpaws in 2014 as well, posting a .642 OPS against lefties and a .802 OPS against righties, but the split has been more pronouced this season, as the third baseman has powered to a .288/.366/.519 line while hitting all six of his home runs against righties.

Machado is set to face Mariners righty Taijuan Walker on Tuesday but then has a pair of matchups against left-handers on Wednesday and Thursday.
