Yankees manager Joe Girardi believes in Carlos Beltran getting going


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:07 pm ET) Yankees veteran outfielder Carlos Beltran isn't hitting well to start the 2015 season. Beltran is hitting a lowly .173 and just 6 for 39 batting left-handed. After going with Chris Young over Beltran in the lineup Saturday, manger Joe Girardi had words of encouragement for the veteran, according to The Journal News.

"I know he's frustrated," Girardi said. "He had a couple big hits the other day. It's been a little bit harder left-handed for him, but I really believe he's going to get going. I do. He probably needs a break here and there and it will start happening for him."

Beltran also sat out two games last week due to an illness and Girardi was worried he wasn't ready to come back when he did.

"I'm sure it hasn't helped," Girardi said. "I thought he was still somewhat weak in Detroit. At the end of the road trip, he still had a little bit of a chest cold. I think he's better now. He's really important to our offense and we have to get him going."


Angels C.J. Cron continues heating up with three-hit Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:05 pm ET) When the season began, Angels designated hitter C.J. Cron couldn't buy a hit. Not he's pretty much hitting every other game. When he starts hitting every day, he'll truly be hot.

For now, he's lukewarm. But he did peak with a 3-for-4 performance Friday night against Texas. Cron doubled, singled twice and scored in the fourth to raise his average over .200 for the first time.

He has hit safely in just five of his last eight games, but managed multiple hits in three of them and has three doubles during that stretch.


Joe Mauer to DH for Twins, Kennys Vargas at first


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) Joe Mauer and Kennys Vargas swapped positions for the Twins on Saturday. Mauer, who has started 14 of the team's 16 games at first base, will play designated hitter. Vargas, who has been the DH for 13 games, will play first. 

It's the second start at first base this season for Vargas and Mauer's third time at DH. 

The Twins are +145 money line underdogs at Seattle. 


Victor Martinez drives in three for the Tigers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:18 pm ET) Tigers DH Victor Martinez drove in three runs on a 2-for-4 day at the plate in Saturday's 4-1 win over Cleveland. 

Martinez singled with the bases loaded and added another RBI single later to pace the Tigers' scoring. He now has eight RBI on the season and is hitting .239.


Mitch Moreland gets start at first base for Rangers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:59 pm ET) Mitch Moreland will start his second straight game at first base for the Rangers on Saturday. 

Moreland started for the first time in 11 days on Friday. He's in the lineup at first again on Saturday, batting fifth in the lineup. 

The Rangers are +145 money line underdogs at the Angels. 


Tim Beckham replaces David DeJesus at Rays DH


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:30 pm ET) Rays DH David DeJesus is not in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game. In his place, Tim Beckham becomes the eighth Rays player to start at designated hitter this season. 

Beckham has five starts at second base and two at shortstop this season. He went 2 for 2 with two RBI and a home run after entering Friday's game as a pinch hitter. 

The Rays are +102 money line underdogs against visiting Toronto. 


Astros' Chris Carter replaces Evan Gattis at DH


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:30 pm ET) Astros DH Evan Gattis is not listed in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game at Oakland. After 11 straight starts at DH, Gattis heads to the bench, replaced at DH by first baseman Chris Carter

Marwin Gonzalez gets his third start of the year at first base, batting eighth in the lineup. 

The Astros are +105 money line underdogs at Oakland. 


Yankees Chris Young gets start in right over Carlos Beltran


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:58 pm ET) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's Subway Series game against the Mets. 

Chris Young replaces Beltran, batting sixth in the lineup. It's Young's sixth start of the year in right. He also has five starts in left. 

"Cy's been playing well. Righties have had more success off Harvey. I thought we'd put Cy out there," Girardi said to The Journal News. "We're trying because he's playing so well. The good thing is, we've run into some lefties. We'll see another one tomorrow. There have been some situations where I've been able to get him in there. He’s been swinging so well, we’re looking for ways."

The Yankees are -115 money line favorites at home against the Mets. 


David Ortiz drives in three in Red Sox win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:57 am ET) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz drove in three runs in Friday's win at Baltimore. 

Ortiz hit his first home run since April 13, which was also his last multi-RBI game. He had driven in a total of two runs in the eight games since. 

Ortiz went 2 for 5, his first multi-hit game since April 18. He raised his average to .211.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland made his return to the starting lineup Friday against the Angels after missing six starts due to an elbow injury. Moreland hit second against Angels right-hander Garrett Richards.

Matt Joyce out of Angels' lineup vs. southpaw


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) With the Angels facing Texas lefthander Wandy Rodriguez on Friday, left fielder Matt Joyce is out of the starting lineup. 

Joyce has faced southpaws in just three of his 52 plate appearances this season. Collin Cowgill gets the start in left, batting seventh in the lineup. C.J. Cron is the DH, batting sixth. 

The Angels are -180 money line favorites against visiting Texas. 


Trip to Camden Yards could be what David Ortiz needs to snap slump


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Red Sox DH David Ortiz heads into Friday's game at Baltimore in need of a hot streak, as he is batting just .192 with a .385 slugging percentage through 15 games. Perhaps a trip to Camden Yards is coming at a good time.

Ortiz has hit very well at Camden Yards since the 2013 season. In his last 17 games at Baltimore, he is batting .313 (21 for 67) with one triple, seven home runs, 14 RBI, seven walks and eight strikeouts.

In his career, Ortiz has hit 22 home runs, totaled 70 RBI and has a .489 slugging percentage in 105 games at Camden Yards.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) After getting Thursday off to rest, Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez returned to the lineup for Friday's game against the Mets, the team announced.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez has had an impressive start to open the season and opposing teams are taking notice.

"He looks completely comfortable and relaxed in the box. He's not swinging at many bad pitches," a scout said, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Rodriguez has hit four home runs with 11 RBI in 49 at-bats to start the season. He was given the day off Thursday, but is expected to return to the lineup Friday against the Mets.


Yankees' Alex Rodriguez gets the day off in Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi gave the day off to Alex Rodriguez Thursday against Detroit, according to the USA Today. The embattled slugger is hitting .265 (13 for 49) with tree doubles, four homers and 11 RBI in 15 games. He has just two hits over his last 17 at-bats.

Rodriguez is two home runs away from tying Giants legend Willie Mays on the all-time home run list.

Girardi said he plans to start Rodriguez during all six games on the homestand, per MLB.com.


A's DH Billy Butler hits third homer of the season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler accounted for four RBI in Wednesday night’s 9-2 win over the Angels.

Butler went 2 for 5, which included hitting his third home run of the season. Butler’s homer came in the seventh inning, which also scored Stephen Vogt. Butler now has 12 RBI this year. 

Butler is hitting .377/.433/.590.


Rangers' Mitch Moreland makes pinch-hit appearance Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland (elbow) made a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, going 0 for 1 in his team's 8-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Moreland has been limited by an elbow injury in recent days, and he wasn't in the starting lineup Wednesday as expected. However, he did come to the plate with a man on first and one out in the seventh inning but hit into a double play. The team has been unable to use a designated hitter while in a National League park this week, but Moreland could be back in the lineup Friday when the team opens a series against the Angels in Anaheim.


Twins DH Kennys Vargas working to break out of early slump


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Twins designated hitter Kennys Vargas has yet to find a rhythm at the plate this season. Vargas is hitting just .186 with one home run and three RBI in 43 at-bats this season. Manager Paul Molitor thinks Vargas is pressing too much at the plate, according to MLB.com

"He's really hungry to get consistent, but if I have any fears for him it's that he hits too much," Molitor said. "Whenever we hit extra, he's always in the cage. He's trying to always repeat swings to take it into the game. He's a strong enough man to handle, but when you talk about over the course of the year, it's going to add up for him. So we might have to back him off."


Angels DH Cron continues comeback at the plate Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Angels designated hitter C.J. Cron cannot be considered hot, but he is certainly not as cold as he was to start the season.

Cron continued his mini-surge with two hits and two runs scored Tuesday in a lopsided defeat of Oakland. He is 6-for-23 after starting the season hitless in 11 at-bats.

His double in the sixth inning against the Athletics kicked off a six-run explosion.


Athletics DH Billy Butler bashes second homer in defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Athletics were crushed Tuesday night by the Angels, but don't blame designated hitter Billy Butler. He was designated to hit and he did just that.

Butler provided the lone Oakland run with a third-inning homer to center. He added a single to give his team two of its five hits and improve his slash line to a robust .375/.435/.554. Butler has hit safely in 14 of 15 games to start the season.


Rangers' Mitch Moreland out of the lineup Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Rangers first baseman/designated hitter Mitch Moreland is out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, the team announced.

Moreland, who is dealing with a knee injury, is expected to be on the bench until Friday, with the team playing in National League stadiums until this weekend. Moreland is hitting .276 with one home run in 29 at-bats this season.


Ausmus: Tigers DH Martinez looking 'a lot better'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Things appear to be looking up for Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez, who has been struggling so much with a knee ailment that Brad Ausmus has considered sitting him against right-handers.

Martinez told Ausmus on Tuesday that he feels good and the manager thinks he looks good as well. "He actually looked a lot better yesterday than he did the day before," Ausmus told the Detroit Free Press.

The switch-hitter, who is batting cleanup Tuesday against the Yankees, has emerged from a mini-slump with three hits Sunday and two hard-hit balls Monday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
