Mark Appel rocked in Wednesday start as velocity down
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:19 am ET) Astros premier pitching prospect Mark Appel didn't pitch like it Wednesday for Class-A Advanced Lancaster. He surrendered three earned runs on six hits in 2 1/3 innings with two strikeouts.

Also concerning is that he tossed his fastball consistently around 90 mph, far below the mid-90s to which he had become accustomed.


Curtis Granderson gets a day off Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:15 am ET) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson was not in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

It's a routine day off for Granderson. He'll be replaced in right field by 40-year-old Bobby Abreu, who is making his first start as a Met. Granderson is hitting .125 in 72 at-bats to open the season.


Bobby Abreu gets first start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:09 am ET) Mets outfielder Bobby Abreu made his first start of the season Thursday against the Cardinals.

Abreu signed with the team in early April, and was called up Monday. He'll play right field and hit sixth against Lance Lynn. 


Jared Hughes sent down Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:04 am ET) The Pirates have sent pitcher Jared Hughes to Triple-A.

Hughes appeared in just one game with the club, earning a win against the Reds. Hughes was sent down in order to make room for Brandon Cumpton, who will slot into the rotation.


Brandon Cumpton headed to Pittsburgh
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:01 am ET) The Pirates have called up pitcher Brandon Cumpton Thursday.

Cumpton is expected to replace Wandy Rodriguez in the team's rotation. In order to make room for Cumpton, Jared Hughes was optioned to Triple-A. Cumpton has posted a 1.42 ERA over three starts in the minors. 


Torii Hunter back in the lineup Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:59 am ET) Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter was back in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Hunter had been dealing with a knee injury earlier in the year, but played in seven straight games. His Wednesday day off was not connected to the knee issues. Hunter will hit fifth and play right field Thursday.


Joe Smith next in line for Angels closer role?
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:15 am ET) Angels reliever Joe Smith seems to be the popular pick for closer-in-waiting, according to the Los Angeles Times

While manager Mike Scioscia said he's not looking to make a change at closer, that hasn't stopped the speculation. Fernando Salas replaced Ernesto Frieri during Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, but Smith seems to be emerging as the prime replacement should Scioscia make the change. Smith had pitched earlier in the game, so Scioscia couldn't go to him with the game on the line late. 

Smith has been solid over 10 innings. He's posted a 3.60 ERA, with 11 strikeouts and three walks. 


Salvador Perez gets a day off Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:01 am ET) Royals catcher Salvador Perez was not in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Indians.

It's a normal day of rest for Perez. He'll get rest after a night game Wednesday. Brett Hayes will get the start behind the plate. Perez has struggled to open the year, hitting just .213 over 75 at-bats. 


Tommy Hunter continues to escape jams
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:57 am ET) Orioles closer Tommy Hunter has been able to convert all but one of his save opportunities this season, but he's made many of them interesting.

Over his eight appearances this season, only two have resulted in clean innings. The last five times out, Hunter has allowed nine hits and three runs over five innings. Despite those issues, he's only blown one save over that period. Things nearly fell apart Wednesday, as Hunter loaded the bases before getting a game-ending double play.

Hunter entered the year with a tenuous grasp on the closer role. While he's been able to convert most of his opportunities, his luck will eventually run out if he keeps putting guys on base. It's not something for Fantasy owners to worry about just yet, but it would be nice if Hunter could get through a couple clean innings moving forward.


Gio Gonzalez downplays shoulder issue
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:21 am ET) Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez downplayed his shoulder injury, accoring to MLB.com.

Gonzalez was removed from Wednesday's game after throwing just 83 pitches. Manager Matt Williams explained after the game that Gonzalez dealt with shoulder soreness, and he didn't want to take any chances. When asked about the issue, Gonzalez told reporters he's fine. 

"After the fifth inning, it started getting a little colder," Gonzalez said. [The shoulder] felt a little tight." "Matt started seeing it in the sixth inning. I feel fine now. I did all my exercises. I feel great. Next question."

Gonzalez is not expected to miss his next start. He's set to take on the Astros in Houston Tuesday.
