by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Reds CF Billy Hamilton could play way into leadoff spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:04 pm ET) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is back in the leadoff spot Tuesday against the Twins after a standout performance batting leadoff Monday. He went 2 for 4 with three runs, two walks and four stolen bases.

While Hamilton is currently batting leadoff as Brandon Phillips is sidelined due to injury, manager Bryan Price said Hamilton could stay in that spot if he continues to perform well.

“If he can do what he did yesterday on a regular basis, that would be great,” Price said, per MLB.com. “You guys know, the great importance of that role is you know that guy is going to get the most at-bats on your ballclub, and he needs to be on base.”

Price added Hamilton is still finding his way from the left side of the plate as a switch-hitter. Although, he is improving on bunt hits. After starting 0 for 6 on bunt-hit attempts, he is now 6 for 17 (.353).

“The more balls he gets on the ground, the more chances he has of getting on base,” Price said. “I still believe that’s the role he will fill for this team. It just has to come on a more consistent basis before he returns full-time to the leadoff spot.”

Cashman: Removing Warren from rotation had to do with workload


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:29 pm ET) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that removing Adam Warren from the rotation was based more on limiting his workload than performance, per ESPN.

Up until 2015, Warren had never logged more than 78 2/3 innings at the MLB level. He is already at 82 2/3 innings this season.

"We have to manage his innings," Cashman said. "He's pitched great but we're giving him a timeout. It doesn't mean he's out of the rotation for good. We're giving him a breather and if somebody gets hurt, he automatically goes back in."


Rangers option Joey Gallo to Triple-A on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:27 pm ET) The Rangers announced they have optioned rookie Joey Gallo to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday. Gallo's demotion opens a roster spot for Josh Hamilton, who was activated from the disabled list.

“It was a great experience,” Gallo said, per The Dallas Morning News. “I faced some really good pitchers. That was one big benefit for me. I had some success and a lot of failure. It was important to see what the level of competition up here is like.”

Gallo showed flashes of promise in his first taste of the big leagues. The 21-year-old had five home runs and 13 RBI in 25 games. But he also posted a meager .218 batting average and struck out nearly 44 percent of his at-bats.

“I’ve got to find a two-strike approach,” Gallo said. “When I got there [to two strikes], I got a little excited. I wanted to do damage every time. I’ve just got to put the ball in play.”


Cashman: CC Sabathia to remain in rotation for foreseeable future


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reiterated Tuesday the team has no intentions of removing veteran starting pitcher CC Sabathia from the rotation.

"That's not something that we're considering at this moment," Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com. "We're going to continue to give him every opportunity to work through this for the foreseeable future."

Sabathia dropped another game Monday against the Angels to fall to 3-8 through 16 starts. He has a 5.59 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, and he has allowed 19 home runs in 95 innings.

"The home runs are a big issue," Cashman said. "That's something that's new for him, in the last couple of years. If they're solo shots, they're not as painful.

"He's still competing and finding himself. I think early on he had not the best of luck or run support."
