by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"Both plays at first were not routine plays," Weiss said. "The ball down the line was a difficult play. ... The other was a throw in the dirt that he didn't pick. But he's working really hard and has a great attitude. I haven't backed off that all — having him at first."

Rosario is hitting .333 in 12 at-bats this season.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After the game, the Brewers announced Lucroy will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a broken left toe and the team will call up catcher Juan Centeno

"I've been hit a million times on my feet," Lucroy said. "I was just talking to 'Maldy' about it and he said the same thing: That's the first time I've ever seen a catcher break their toe. It had to be me. It's about par for the course right now."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Athletics second baseman Ben Zobrist is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.

Zobrist came out of Sunday's game due to knee soreness and is being held out of his regular role one day later. Zobrist is hoping rest and cortisone will alleviate the issue and doesn't think it is as bad as the one that required surgery, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I know it's not normal, so in that regard, it's a little disconcerting," Zobrist said, per MLB.com. "I'm disappointed right now that I'm not in the lineup, and I definitely want to feel 100 percent, and I'm not there... We'll see how it reacts."

"If it reacts well and I feel I can really move out there and contribute, then I'll give it a go. If not, then we'll have to give it more time."

With Zobrist sidelined, catcher Stephen Vogt will move to the No. 3 spot in the lineup, while Eric Sogard will draw the start at second base and bat eighth.

The Athletics are underdogs (+135) against the Angels on the road Monday.

"To be honest, when I was getting close to second I was a little surprised I could keep running," McCann said, per MLive. "I almost missed second. But I'm just glad I could hit the ball hard a few times today and help get our team a W."

McCann said it was just the third triple he's hit since college, counting one he hit in the Dominican Winter League in November, 2013. 

Manager Brad Ausmus was impressed with McCann's swing.

"I think we're seeing that James McCann is a strong human," he said. "Although he didn't hit for a lot of power in the minors, it wouldn't shock me if a few years down the road he was hitting for more power."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco remains sidelined with hip injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco missed his seventh straight game Sunday with a left hip impingement and manager Bryan Price still isn't sure when he can return or what do with him, reports MLB.com.

"You're kind of between a rock and a hard place with this," Price said. "You don't want to exacerbate the problem, and I'm confident that his ability to hit and run will not compromise his current condition. [But] it's a lot easier to get him in the lineup when he's able to catch, and he's not there yet. I don't know how much we'll use him as a pinch-hitter. I'm hoping that in the next few days he's able to catch, because that's really his value to our club."

Price has not yet ruled out a stint on the disabled list for Mesoraco.

"[The] feeling is that ... he needed a few extra days rest from catching and may be able to catch in the next couple of days," Price said. "I'm hoping he can. I'm not sure."
