Indians' Mike Aviles collects four hits, homers in win Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Indians third baseman Mike Aviles went 4 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 5-2 win over the White Sox on Thursday.

Aviles smacked his third home run of the season as part of a four-run first inning for the Indians to help lead the team to a win. The four-hit game ups Aviles' line to .323/.384/.508 with three home runs and six RBI in 65 at-bats.


Blue Jays' Jose Reyes plays six innings at shortstop Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes went 1 for 4 in his rehab debut with Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

Reyes played six innings at shortstop and was part of two double plays while picking up a single in his final at-bat. Out since April 27 due to a fractured rib, the shortstop is expected to see action in two more rehab games before joining the Blue Jays on Monday.

Reyes has hit .250/.266/.300 with three stolen bases in 60 at-bats.


Orioles' J.J. Hardy hits go-ahead run in 8th inning vs. Mariners


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Orioles infielder J.J. Hardy has had a hard time getting his bat going since returning to the club in early May due to a shoulder injury. 

Though he only recorded one hit in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Mariners, it proved to be a crucial one in the bottom of the eighth inning. Hardy hit a single to center field that scored Chris Davis from second, which would turn out to be the winning run for Baltimore. 

Hardy finished the game 1 for 4, which is the same line he's had in his previous two games. He's hitting only .196/.229/.348 this season. 


Asdrubal Cabrera out, Nick Franklin in Rays lineup Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Struggling Rays shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is set to sit Thursday against visiting Oakland. Nick Franklin will play the position instead.

Cabrera has been steadily unproductive since mid-April. His batting average has not been higher than .225 since that point. He currently owns a stat line of .209/.264/.338 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 148 at-bats.


Orioles' Everth Cabrera to be activated on Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter said there's no reason to believe that infielder Everth Cabrera won't rejoin the team Friday night in Miami when he's eligible to come off the disabled list, per MASN Sports.

Cabrera has been sidelined since May 6 with a foot injury. He hit .205 with four RBI in 83 at-bats at the time of his injury.


Angels' Scioscia: Aybar's OBP won't be off the charts as leadoff man


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia is hoping that shortstop Erick Aybar will add a spark to the offense from the leadoff spot, per the Los Angeles Times.

Aybar spent seven games at the top of the order earlier in the season before taking over the top spot for the foreseeable future on Monday. He is hitting .286 (4 for 14) in his first three games back as the leadoff man, and .387 (24 for 62) with four RBI and a .406 on-base percentage over his last 16 games played.

"I don't think you ever ask a player to do something he's either not comfortable with or not suited for," Scioscia said. "With Erick, although he's not going to see as many pitches as a traditional leadoff guy, he's athletic, he's going to get in scoring position a lot.

"His on-base is not going to be off the charts, but it's not going to be awful, either. He's going to get on base enough, get in scoring position enough to where he can still be effective as a table-setter."


Tigers' Andrew Romine gets the start at SS over Jose Iglesias


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Andrew Romine will get the start in shortstop for the Tigers on Thursday in place of Jose Iglesias, who is likely getting a scheduled day off against Houston, per MLive.com.

Romine is batting ninth in the lineup in his first start since May 10. He is hitting .346 (9 for 26) with three RBI this season.

Detroit is favored (-160) at home against Houston.


Indians' Jose Ramirez swipes two bases in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez went 2 for 3 with two walks, two runs scored, one RBI and two stolen bases in his team's 4-3 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.

Ramirez hasn't been a force at the plate for much of the season but turned things on against the White Sox, going 5 for 10 with three walks and three stolen bases in the last three games. He broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI single in the seventh inning and his team didn't relinquish the lead over the remainder of the game.

"He looks like he's starting to play with some confidence," manager Terry Francona said, per Northeast Ohio Media Group. "His energy rounding the bag at first ... he looks like the Jose we became really fond of last year. That's very welcome.

"His batting average (.198) is going to be low for a while, but if he starts playing like that it will give us a huge lift."

Ramirez has hit .198/.260/.261 with one home run, seven RBI and eight stolen bases in 111 at-bats.


Angels SS Erick Aybar on aches and pains: 'It's bad'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Just call him Aching Erick. Angels shortstop Erick Aybar is having problems with his lower back and hamstrings.

"It's bad," he told MLB.com.

It has not shown at the plate. Aybar has hit in 10 straight games and 14 of his last 15. His average has catapulted during that stretch from .200 to .279, its highest point since April 10.


A's SS Marcus Semien riding eight-game hitting streak


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien extended his current hitting streak to eight games with a 1 for 5 effort in Wednesday's loss to the Astros. Semien has 12 hits, including a double, two triples and a home run in 33 at-bats during the eight-game stretch.

Overall this season, Semien owns a .309 batting average with six home runs in 160 at-bats.

He did commit his American League-leading 16th error of the season on Wednesday, as he continues to work on his defensive game. 


Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes (rib) could return Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes is tentatively scheduled to return to the team on Monday. Manager John Gibbons said Reyes will likely play three rehab games with Triple-A Buffalo, starting on Thursday, prior to returning, according to MLB.com.

"Hopefully, I think the plan maybe is for him to be back here ready to play on Monday," manager John Gibbons said.

Reyes has been out for three weeks with a fractured rib. 

"He's coming off that particular injury, if you throw him into a game here right away, it still bothers him, because adrenaline starts flowing in a game, then you'd have to DL him and start 15 days all over," Gibbons said. "Down there, if he doesn't feel quite right, comes out, if he just needs a couple of more days, you're still in good shape that way. But, yeah, he needs to see some live pitching."


Twins SS Danny Santana remains in leadoff spot for Wednesday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Twins shortstop Danny Santana will bat leadoff Wednesday for the second-consecutive game, reports the StarTribune.

Santana will face Pirates left-handed pitcher Jeff Locke in Wednesday's matchup, who he has never faced in his career. Santana went 0 for 4 in the leadoff spot during Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

The Twins are the underdogs (+150) at Pittsburgh on Wednesday.


Mariners make wholesale changes to spark lineup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) The slumping Mariners juggled their lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, hoping to find a spark for a team that hasn't lived up to expectations. 

Willie Bloomquist returns to the starting lineup for the first time in 11 games, hitting second and playing left field, while Justin Ruggiano and Rickie Weeks also draw rare starts in center and DH, respectively. 

Those moves bump Dustin Ackley and Brad Miller out of the lineup. Ackley has seen his average plummet to .186 this season. Miller has been one of the hottest Seattle hitters, but went 0-for-4 Tuesday to snap a six-game hitting streak. 


Fan Man Zach Walters demoted to Columbus by Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Strikeout machine Zach Walters has been optioned by the Indians to Triple-A Columbus to make room on the roster for Wednesday night starter Shaun Marcum, the Northeast Ohio Media Group is reporting.

Walters has struggled to make consistent contact. He has 56 strikeouts in 144 at-bats over the last two seasons and has fanned eight times in 17 at-bats in 2015.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Reyes has been out since April 27 with the rib issue.

Reyes was hitting .250 (15 for 60) with three doubles and seven RBI before heading to the disabled list.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Rays shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera launched his second home run of the season during Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Braves.

Cabrera took Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz deep for a solo home run to tie the game in the fourth inning. It was his only hit of the night, as he finished 1 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI. He raised his slash line to .214/.265/.345 on the year.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) After not hitting in the leadoff spot since April 29, Twins shortstop Danny Santana will bat first in Tuesday's game at Pittsburgh, reports the StarTribune.

Santana will face left-handed pitcher Francisco Liriano, who Santana has never faced in his career. Santana is batting .176 with no home runs and three RBI in his last 10 games.

The Twins are the underdogs (+170) at Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

(5/18/2015) The Astros placed pitcher Samuel Deduno on the 15-day disabled list and transferred shortstop Jed Lowrie to the 60-day disabled list on Monday, the team announced.

Lowrie had surgery on his thumb earlier this month. If he meets the earliest part of his timetable for recovery, he'll likely be back around the All-Star break.
