"This time, I'm so glad I got the base hit to win the game. It's been a tough week and a half for everybody. The way everybody took care of business here, everybody is so happy."

Nationals GM Rizzo: Still no timetable for Anthony Rendon's return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rendon is fielding grounders and taking swings in the batting cage, but he is not quite ready to resume a rehab assignment, manager Matt Williams said Wednesday. Rendon was on a rehab assignment in early May before having to stop because of an oblique strain.

Williams said Friday that Rendon fielded around 40 grounders and turned some double plays at second base. He also took part in live batting practice for the first time since suffering his oblique injury.


D-Backs' Tomas likely moving to outfield once Lamb returns


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Once Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb returns from the disabled list, the thinking is that he will play at the hot corner and Yasmany Tomas will move to the outfield, where Arizona already has a glut of outfielders, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Tomas has been the team's primary third baseman since Lamb went on the disabled list in mid-April. After a slow start offensively, Tomas has been on a nice run as of late. He has multiple hits in six straight games through Thursday. He is batting .500 (13 for 26) with one home run, three doubles and four RBI in that span.

Lamb is expected to come off the disabled list around June 1.
