Dodgers transfer Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) to 60-day DL


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:57 pm ET) The Dodgers moved pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 15-day DL to the 60-day disabled list, the team announced.

Ryu has been dealing with a shoulder injury, which has prevented from pitching during the 2015 season.


Blue Jays will bring back Daniel Norris after hot streak in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:43 pm ET) Blue Jays rookie starting pitcher Daniel Norris had his ups and downs before being sent to the minors Friday. The Blue Jays have a plan for Norris, as they are expecting him to return to the majors this season.

"Just like [Marcus] Stroman last year, we thought send him down to get him hot and then get him back up here," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said.


Pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) not with Dodgers in Milwaukee


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3:25 pm ET) Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) did not travel with the team to Milwaukee, according to am570Radio. 

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly had said Ryu, who's on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury, would travel with the club and throw a bullpen session and possibly throw to live hitters.


Rule 5 pick Logan Verrett returned to Mets


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:33 pm ET) RHP Logan Verrett was returned to the Mets after spending parts of 2015 with the Orioles and Rangers. 

Baltimore chose Verrett in the offseason Rule 5 draft, after the Mets left him off their 40-man roster. The Orioles waived him at the end of spring training, and he was claimed by Texas. 

After going 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in four games with the Rangers, Verrett was designated for assignment. After going unclaimed on waivers, he was returned to the Mets, who outrighted him to Triple-A Las Vegas. 


Athletics pitcher Jarrod Parker has third rehab outing on Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:17 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Jarrod Parker made his third rehab start on Sunday. The right-hander pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on four hits, recording four strikeouts and a walk. This time, Parker was pitching at Triple A Nashville, according to the San Francsico Chronicle

Parker underwent Tommy John surgery last March and is hoping to make his return to a Major League mound around the end of May, though a definitive timetable has not been made available at this time.


Red Sox's Farrell to Clay Buchholz: Do a better job mixing pitches


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:08 pm ET) Red Sox manager John Farrell had a chat Saturday with struggling starting pitcher Clay Buchholz, who heads into his start Monday against the Rays with a 0-3 record and 8.00 ERA in his last four starts.

“He called me in there (Saturday) just to talk about where I’m at,” Buchholz said Sunday, per The Boston Herald. “We’ve had more conversations over the last two years than I did in 2013 because everything was going good for me, so there wasn’t a whole lot of guidance I needed.

“Obviously, he’s a good pitching guy, he knows a lot about pitching, but as a manager you can’t have your hand on just one part of the game. Still, whenever I need to talk to him or he needs to talk to me, he’s easy to talk to.”

Farrell told Buchholz to do a better job of mixing his pitches. 

"'If you’re going to do bad, go out there and minimize the damage as well as you can,'" Buchholz said Farrell told him. "'You’re going to have your bad starts, but hopefully the good ones outweigh the bad ones by a big margin.'"

A matchup with Rays could be what Buchholz's needs to get back on track. He is 8-6 with a 2.40 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 19 career starts against the AL East foe. The Rays are batting just .222 with a .341 slugging percentage against right-handers in 2015.


Archie Bradley returns to bullpen mound for Diamondbacks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:44 am ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley will pitch a bullpen session on Monday, as he continues to recover from a sinus fracture, suffered when he was hit with a line drive. 

"Seriously can't wait to get back on that mound," Bradley tweeted.


Report: D-Backs wanted Blue Jays' Norris in trade for Wade Miley


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:08 am ET) Before the Red Sox ended up acquiring starting pitcher Wade Miley in the offseason, one other team thought the left-hander might be a good fit for the AL East, according to WEEI.com. The Blue Jays also had siginificant interest in trading for Miley, a major-league source said.

However, the Blue Jays opted not to make the deal when the Diamondbacks asked for starting pitcher Daniel Norris -- who is considered the team's top prospect by Baseball America and MLB.com -- in return.

The Diamondbacks traded Miley to the Red Sox on Dec. 12 for Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster and Raymel Flores. Miley is 1-3 with a 7.15 ERA in his first five starts with Boston.


Rays' Alex Cobb to work on offspeed pitches in next throwing session


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:36 am ET) Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb (forearm) will throw offspeed pitches during his next throwing session, which will be off flat ground, manager Kevin Cash said Sunday, per The Tampa Tribune.

Cobb has been on the disabled list all season. He continues to rehab without a timetable for his return.


Yankees pitcher Adam Warren picks up win Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:03 am ET) Yankees pitcher Adam Warren allowed four runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings of work in New York's 8-5 win over the Red Sox on Sunday.

Warren did not find any issues until the sixth inning when he allowed four straight hitters to reach base safely after getting two outs. Warren allowed an RBI double to David Ortiz and then an RBI single to Pablo Sandoval before getting the hook.

Warren, now 2-1, moved his ERA to 4.78 with 14 strikeouts in 26 1/3 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Orioles.


Red Sox starter Joe Kelly roughed up


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:00 am ET) Starting pitcher Joe Kelly struggled once again for the Red Sox during Sunday night’s 8-5 loss to the Yankees, with home runs being the primary concern.

Kelly lasted just 4 2/3 innings, allowing nine runs on five hits, including a first-inning homer to the Yanks’ Mark Teixeira. It’s the fourth straight non-quality start for Kelly, who only managed to strike out three batters. 

In losing his first career game against the Yankees in four starts, Kelly drops to 1-1 and his ERA rises to 5.72. 


Blue Jays recall pitchers Steve Delabar, Chad Jenkins


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) The Blue Jays announced Sunday they have recalled pitchers Steve Delabar and Chad Jenkins from Triple-A Buffalo while optioning pitchers Miguel Castro and Scott Copeland, per TSN radio.

Delabar was 3-0 in 30 games with the Blue Jays last year and was one of the team's last spring training cuts, while Jenkins was 1-1 in 21 appearances. 

Castro was 0-2 with a 3.27 ERA and four saves this year, while Copeland, who was recalled Saturday, pitched one inning in his major league debut. 


D-Backs starter Chase Anderson gets no-decision after six strong IP


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson allowed no runs, two hits, walked one and struck out seven in six innings of work Sunday for a no-decision against the Dodgers.

Adrian Gonzalez and Juan Uribe each singled once off Anderson.

Anderson’s outing was a complete turnaround from his last start, where he gave up five runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Anderson returns to the mound Friday against the Padres.


Dodgers SP Brett Anderson throws six scoreless in no-decision


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Brett Anderson threw six scoreless innings on Sunday, giving up five hits, none for extra bases, and striking out four in six innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

The performance was a strong rebound from his last start where he allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Giants.

"I felt good," Anderson said. "I don't know how many pitches I threw [86, 57 for strikes]. It was a real good stepping stone, hopefully, for starts to come."

Anderson's next start is set for Friday in Colorado.


Phillies pitcher Severino Gonzalez optioned to Triple-A


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Phillies pitcher Severino Gonzalez has been optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the team announced Sunday.

Gonzalez made his second start of the year Sunday against the Marlins, allowing two runs on five hits in five innings of work. He is 1-1 with five strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings this season.

"He has a good mound presence about him, and he's got some confidence, kind of a look of confidence [and] doesn't get flustered too much out there," manager Ryne Sandberg said to Philly.com.

"There's things to be learned and some grooming there, but the attitude and the conviction and all that and the look about him is very good."


Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick smacked around for six runs in loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick (1-4) gave up six runs on six hits in five innings of work to take the loss in San Diego on Sunday.

Justin Upton knocked a two-run homer off Kendrick in the first inning and Derek Norris added another two-run shot of the right hander in the fourth.

"The results aren't there," Kendrick said. "I have to just keep getting after it. They put some balls in play, hit some good pitches. It's frustrating, obviously, when the results aren't there."

Kendrick's start on Sunday was moved up a day in order to let rotation mate Tyler Matzek rest his hamstring.

Kendrick's next scheduled start is Saturday against the Dodgers.


Padres starter James Shields gets win despite allowing five earned


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Padres starter James Shields (3-0) surrendered three home runs, giving up five runs overall, in 5 1/3 innings Sunday but was able to earn the win against the Rockies. 

Shields was touched by Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado twice for homers. 

Shields gave up nine hits and struck out seven and did not walk a batter. 

"James Shields is really good pitcher," Arenado said. ''He probably left a couple of pitches up that he probably wished he could take back. We put some good swings on the ball."

The five runs were the most the right hander has allowed all season. 

Shields will look to get back on track Friday in Arizona.


Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver falls to 0-4 on Sunday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Angels starting pitcher Jered Weaver (0-4) yielded consecutive home runs in the first inning on Sunday and never recovered, giving up five runs, overall, on 10 hits in five innings for a loss in San Francisco. 

Nori Aoki and Joe Panik delivered the back-to-back blows for the Giants.

Weaver's fastball stayed around 83-84 mph all game and remains winless after six starts this season. 

"It's frustrating," he said. "I'm not doing a very good job of helping the team win right now. It's tough. Just when you think the outing is going to be good, it starts out like it did today."

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after the game that he has no plans on skipping Weaver for his next start.

"I don't think there's any magic pixie dust you can sprinkle on it and get him going," Scioscia said. "It's gonna be a process. He's not injured."

Weaver will seek his first win of 2015 on Friday against the Astros.


Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo struggles in defeat


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo wasn't sharp Sunday against the Athletics and wound up on the wrong side of a 7-1 defeat, his fourth loss of the season. 

Gallardo (2-4) went 6 2/3 innings, giving up seven hits and four runs, three of them earned. He struggled to find the plate, walking four, which inflated his pitch count to 118 before he was pulled. 

Gallardo has lost three straight decisions and seen his ERA rise to 4.05. 


Athletics P Sonny Gray strikes out 10 to improve to 4-0


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Athletics starter Sonny Gray continued his strong start to the 2015 season, striking out 10 batters to lead Oakland to a 7-1 triumph over the Rangers on Sunday. 

Gray moved to 4-0 on the year with relative ease, going 6 2/3 innings and allowing just two hits. He did battle with wildness, however, walking seven batters, which raised his pitch total to 119. 

"Sonny doesn't have anything, he's still one of the best pitchers in baseball," said catcher Stephen Vogtt to MLB.com. "He did not feel good today, and that's an understatement. He was not himself. The ball wasn't moving like it normally does. Didn't have a sinker. Didn't have a fastball, for that matter. Kinda just threw whatever he was throwing. He's just so good at manipulating the ball and making it move when he doesn't feel good."

Gray lowered his ERA on the season to 1.67, which is good for sixth in the AL, and his four wins are tied for the top spot in the league. 


Giants SP Tim Lincecum throws eight shutout innings for win on Sunday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Giants starter Tim Lincecum (2-2) went eight strong innings on Sunday, scattering three hits while not allowing a run in the Giants' victory over the Angels.

All three hits off Lincecum were singles.

With the performance, Lincecum lowered his ERA from 3.27 to 2.40.

"I just tried to execute with the pitches from my gameplan," Lincecum said. "I knew they know I throw a lot of offspeed, so I tried to pick my spots to throw the fastball."

Lincecum also collected two singles at the plate.

"He really had a good rhythm, good pace today and set the tone," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Just a terrific job. His fastball command really can determine how his game goes."

Lincecum's next start is scheduled for Friday against the Marlins.


Cardinals' Michael Wacha tosses 6 2/3 scoreless innings vs. Pirates


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up just five hits and two walks in 6 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out two in his team's 3-2 win in 14 innings.

Wacha had his first rough outing of the year in his last start but was still able to pull out a win, and he then bounced back with his first scoreless performance of the season Sunday. He gave up a leadoff single in the seventh inning but was able to record back-to-back outs on a sacrifice and flyout before coming out of the game with 100 pitches to his credit, though he was unable to win his fifth straight start to open the year after the Pirates tied the game in the ninth inning.

Wacha owns a 1.93 ERA and 18:8 K:BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings. He'll square off with the Pirates in Pittsburgh Friday.

Pirates' Vance Worley earns quality start vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Pirates pitcher Vance Worley wasn't a factor in the decision Sunday, giving up just one earned run on four hits and one walk in six innings while striking out five in his team's 3-2 loss in 14 innings.

Worley pitched well for the third time in his last four starts, with the only damage coming on a solo home run by Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter in the fourth inning. That was enough to keep him from a win, as the Cardinals managed to hold the Pirates scoreless until a Jung Ho Kang ninth-inning home run tied the game.

"This was my first time [throwing to] Stewart for more than one batter, and we had a good talk before we went out to play catch," Worley said. "We had a good game plan. We knew that against this lineup, we had to mix it up and not be predictable."

Worley owns a 3.90 ERA and 23:10 K:BB ratio in 30 innings. He'll square off with the Cardinals again Saturday, this time at home.


Tigers' David Price gets extra fielding after errors


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Tigers pitcher David Price committed his second error of the season on Saturday, and he decided to do something about it. 

Price took ground balls from a coach in the outfield on Sunday morning, getting in some extra fielding practice. He did the same thing the day after his previous error, a month ago.

"I'd rather not lead the league in errors," Price said, per MLive. "I'm giving them extra outs. Getting 27 outs is hard enough. I'd rather not have to get 28 or 29."

He's a hard worker," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He even works hard before his start on the day of his start -- just in his preparation."


Twins' Mike Pelfrey pulled in fourth inning vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and two walks in just 3 1/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 13-3 win over the White Sox.

Pelfrey watched his team stake him to a 7-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning but couldn't find a way to work out of trouble in the fourth. He opened the inning with a walk, a single and then hit three of the next four batters he faced to bring two runs home and earn an early hook.

Pelfrey owns a 2.63 ERA and 16:11 K:BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Indians Friday in Cleveland.
