by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:39 pm ET) Padres starter Brandon Morrow, currently on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, is expected to make his first minor-league rehab start on Tuesday. Morrow threw a bullpen session on Saturday and has been cleared to start for Double-A San Antonio, according to U-T San Diego.

Morrow has been sidelined since May 3. The team did not reveal how many rehab starts the right-hander will need before rejoining the rotation. 


Diamondbacks' Jeremy Hellickson evens record at 3-3


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7:35 pm ET) Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson earned the win on Saturday at Milwaukee, allowing two runs over six innings. 

Hellickson evened his record at 3-3 and cut his ERA to 5.08. He allowed five hits, walked a batter and struck out three.

Marlins SP Tom Koehler gets no-decision on Saturday vs. Mets


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:24 pm ET) Marlins starter Tom Koehler struggled in a no-decision on Saturday, as the Marlins topped the Mets 9-5. Koehler was unable to get out of the fourth, as he went 3 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on seven hits. Koehler had trouble with his control, as he walked four and struck out just one. Just 39 of his 66 pitches went for strikes on the afternoon.

Most of the runs against him came as part of a four-run fourth inning. Koehler's ERA rose to 4.01 with the sub-par performance. He'll look to right the ship in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Coloardo. 


Mets SP Jonathon Niese gets roughed up by the Marlins Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7:19 pm ET) The struggles for Mets starter Jonathon Niese continued on Saturday. Niese managed to go just four innings in a no-decision against the Marlins. It was his shortest start since July of last season. The left-hander surrendered five runs (four earned) on seven hits. He struck out three and did not issue a walk. Niese labored in this one, needing 82 pitches to get through the four innings.

Niese gave up a solo home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the third inning, and a two-run shot to J.T. Realmuto in the fourth. His offense was able to get him off the hook, as Niese picked up the no-decision in the eventual 9-5 loss.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Niese's two-seam fastball hasn't been working, and that he's never seen Niese's location be off so consistently.

"I'm concerned," Collins said, per ESPN.com.

Niese (3-5) has now allowed 20 earned runs in his last four starts, watching his ERA climb from 2.49 to 4.42 over that stretch.

He'll try to turn things around in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Arizona.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:11 pm ET) Orioles starter Bud Norris, who is still recovering from a nasty case of bronchitis that caused him to lose 10 pounds, will make a rehab start at Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday, per CSN Mid-Atlantic. 

Norris, who made a rehab start last week at Double-A, was considered for a start on Wednesday, but the Birds decided that he could use another outing to build up his stamina. Norris went 1-4 with a 9.88 ERA in six starts before going on the disabled list.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:57 pm ET) White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana allowed one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings of work in Chicago's 3-0 loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Quintana ran into a jam in the fourth inning when after two men reached safely, he allowed a walk to load the bases with nobody out. Then, Jonthan Villar produced a sac fly to score a run. After that, Quintana settled down and recorded seven strikeouts to go along with four walks.

Quintana, now 2-6, moved his ERA to 4.14 in 60 1/3 innings of work this season. He will look to get back on track Friday against the Tigers.


Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel strikes out 11 in complete game shutout


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:52 pm ET) Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel tossed a complete game shutout on Saturday in Chicago's 3-0 win over the White Sox. 

Keuchel was magnificent on Saturday, recording a career-high 11 strikeouts and no walks in the contest. He allowed just one baserunner to reach third in the game, but finished off the inning with two strikeouts to work out of the jam. It was just Keuchel's second complete game of the season after recording five in 2014. Keuchel, now 7-1, moved his ERA to 1.76 in 81 2/3 innings of work.

He will look to keep things rolling Thursday against the Orioles.


Rockies SP Eddie Butler beats Phillies on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:49 pm ET) Rockies starter Eddie Butler was solid in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Phillies. Butler limited the Phillies' offense to just one run on four hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out three, as he kept the Phillies off the bases for most of the game.

The only run he gave up came on a first-inning RBI double from Ryan Howard. Butler (3-5) lowered his ERA to 4.22 with Saturday's quality performance. 

He's scheduled to make his next start on Wednesday at home against the Dodgers.


Wei-Yin Chen hard-luck loser for Orioles


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6:45 pm ET) Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen put together another quality start Saturday but it wasn't enough in a 3-0 loss to the Rays, continuing a tough trend for the pitcher. 

It's the ninth time in 10 starts that Chen has allowed three or fewer earned runs, but during that time span, he's only got one win on his ledger. Chen allowed single runs in each of the first three innings, but wound up going seven innings, scattering six hits while striking out four. 

Chen falls to 1-4 on the season but has a solid ERA of 3.21. 


Phillies SP Aaron Harang posts quality start, gets tough-luck loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:35 pm ET) Phillies starter Aaron Harang posted another quality start, but earned a tough-luck loss in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Rockies. Harang went six innings, limiting the Rockies to two runs on four hits.

He struck out seven and did not walk a batter.He did need 109 pitches to make it through the sixth, but it was a solid outing nonetheless.

The only runs to go against Harang came on solo home runs from Nolan Arenado and Michael McKenry. Otherwise, Harang was brilliant yet again. The veteran right-hander has now thrown six straight quality starts, as his ERA actually rose to 2.02 following Saturday's performance.

He'll look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Giants.


Cubs-Royals game postponed due to rain on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:45 pm ET) Rain has postponed Saturday night's game between the Cubs and the Royals, the Cubs announced. The contest will be made up on Monday September 28 at Wrigley Field.

Rockies SP De La Rosa will start next week after Saturday scratch


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:42 pm ET) Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa missed his second consecutive start on Saturday because of a cut on his left middle finger, but his next start has been pushed up to June 2 against the Dodgers, the team announced.

De La Rosa was in line to to get the start on Saturday but he and the team decided that was too soon.

"I thought it would be a little quick," De La Rosa said.

De La Rosa has a 6.51 ERA with 15 walks in 27 2/3 inning this season.


Twins SP Kyle Gibson gets no-decision in victory on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:14 pm ET) Twins starter Kyle Gibson finished one out shy of posting his second consecutive quality start in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays. Gibson pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on eight hits, including a solo home run to Kevin Pillar in the fourth inning. Gibson struggled with his command a bit, as he walked four and struck out three, throwing just 58 of his 103 pitches for strikes.

His defense didn't do him any favors either, as an error in the sixth inning led to an unearned run. Gibson (4-3) took a no-decision on Satuday, as the Twins took the lead in the bottom of the seventh.

He'll look to get back in the win column when he makes his next start Thursday in Boston.


Rockies prospect Kyle Freeland sidelined with shoulder issue


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Freeland began playing catch this week, director of player development Zach Wilson said. 

"He’s doing very well. He’s making strides every day,” Wilson said, per the Denver Post. “He’s steadily improving. Nothing got worse. It wasn’t a major issue, we just want to make sure he gets right


Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez allows two runs in no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Sanchez served up a solo home run to Chris Herrmann in the third inning, and then gave up a run-scoring double to Trevor Plouffe in the fourth. 

"I felt like I was out there battling today," Sanchez said to MLB.com. "A little upset I got beat twice on offspeed [pitches]. I thought Russ [Martin] did a really good job behind the dish, sticking with the gameplan, was tremendous behind the dish throwing runners out. That's what helped me out a lot, just a tough one today."

After a rough beginning to the season, Sanchez has now tossed three straight quality starts for the Blue Jays. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Astros.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals place struggling SP Stephen Strasburg on DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:43 pm ET) The Nationals have announced that they have placed embattled starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness, which became an issue in his one-inning outing Friday night.

Taylor Hill has been promoted from Triple-A Syracuse to take his roster spot.

Strasburg, who has also been plagued by shoulder pain this season, has scuffled all year on the mound. He has not pitched more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his last six starts and is 3-5 with a terrible 6.55 ERA. He has allowed 64 hits in 45 1/3 innings. He was removed one batter into the second inning Friday at Cincinnati.

The right-hander has not shown typical signs of injury. His fastball remains consistently at 95 mph, which indicates that there is nothing wrong with his arm. But his mechanics and command have been an issue thoughout.


Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen ready to take the mound Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:46 pm ET) As expected, Orioles southpaw Wei-Yin Chen is fine for his Saturday start against Tampa Bay. He had been considered probable with soreness.

Chen has been shaky in his last two starts, allowing seven runs on 19 hits in 12 innings. His 1-3 record is not indicative of how he's pitched this season, however. He owns a solid 3.13 ERA.


Many Reds have struggled against Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:39 am ET) Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez has been hot-and-cold recently, but if history is any indication, he's likely to perform well Saturday in Cincinnati.

Gonzalez has been lights-out in the past against several Reds hitters, including Brandon Phillips (1-8), Todd Frazier (0-5), Jay Bruce (2-10), Marlon Byrd (5-21) and Zack Cozart (1-11).

The Reds have 16 hits in 116 at-bats lifetime against Gonzalez.


SP Jorge De La Rosa a no-go Saturday for Rockies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:27 am ET) A cut to the middle finger has Rockies scheduled Saturday starter Jorge De La Rosa scratched. Eddie Butler will take his place at Philadelphia.

De La Rosa has now missed two outings with the issue, which adds to his problems. He has just one quality start in six outings and owns a 6.51 ERA with 15 walks in 27 2/3 innings.

Butler was supposed to pitch Monday.


Orioles SP Bud Norris could pitch Wednesday in Houston


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:27 am ET) Orioles right-hander Bud Norris will either make his next start at Triple-A Norfolk or with the big-league club in Houston on Wednesday.

That's the word from Buck Showalter, per the Baltimore Sun. No decision was made earlier Friday because the Orioles wanted to see if Norris would be needed in an emergency bullpen appearance. But the eight-inning stint of Miguel Gonzalez made that unnecessary.

Norris is recovering from a severe case of bronchitis that has cost him 10 pounds. He has been out since May 10.
