Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki cracks second home run of 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:10 am ET) Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki went 2 for 5 at the plate in Colorado's 5-4 loss to the Giants Saturday in 11 innings. 

Tulowitzki did his damage in the third inning when he ripped an 0-1 pitch from Tim Hudson over the left field wall for a solo home run, his second of the season. He boosted his average to .303 with nine RBI in 66 at-bats this season.


Jean Segura, Aramis Ramirez both pound three hits for Brewers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) The woeful Brewers lost again Saturday night, but they can take at least a bit of solace that two of their key players had big games.

Both leadoff hitter Jean Segura and veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez slammed two singles and a double.

The effort of the latter was particularly encouraging. Ramirez has emerged from a four-game hitless streak to hit safely in four of his last five. The multi-hit game was only his second since the opener.

Segura, on the other hand, has been pretty much raking all year. He has been the subject of trade rumors and his hot hitting can only raise his stock.

Simmons is now hitting .270 with 11 RBI in 63 at-bats this season.


Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria blasts off in defeat of Nationals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) For a guy hitting eighth in the lineup, Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is certainly doing one heck of an impression of a slugger.

Hechavarria maintained his status Saturday one of the hottest hitters in the sport by slamming a three-run homer in the eighth inning of a lopsided defeat of the Nationals. It marked his second three-RBI performance in the last three games.

The 26 year old owns an eight-game hitting streak in which he is 14-for-31. He has been particularly hot lately with 11 hits in 16 at-bats and six RBI in the last four games. Hechavarria has 13 RBI and 15 runs scored in 17 games on the year.

Dodgers prospect Corey Seager getting reps at 3B in minors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Dodgers prospect Corey Seager will play third base "roughly once a week" for the foreseeable future at Double-A Tulsa, president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman told reporters, per the Orange County Register.

"The idea is at some point, whether it's this year or next year, to the extent that we have an injury and he's our best option if he's only played shortstop, that obviously limits him to an injury happening at that one position," Friedman said. "Giving him reps at another position only helps him and helps us."

Seager, 20, is off to a fast start in the minors this season, slashing.423/.436/.654 with four doubles, one triple, two homers and 11 RBI in 14 games.

Hechavarria is now hitting .311/.338/.410.
