White Sox RF Avisail Garcia extends hit streak to nine on Sunday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:02 am ET) White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia extended his hitting streak to nine games in Sunday's loss to the Twins. Garcia went 3 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored, as his season batting average now sits at a comfortable .342.

During the nine-game streak, Garcia is batting a robust .417 with a double and three RBI. Unfortunately for the Sox, they are getting little-to-no contribution from anyone else, as the team has lost five in a row following Sunday's blowout defeat. 


Padres' Joaquin Benoit pitches scoreless inning in return
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:57 am ET) After not appearing in a game since last Monday, Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit returned and threw a scoreless inning in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Benoit had been dealing with a dead arm, but he did not surrender a hit or walk in his first appearance since sustaining the arm issue. He is now 3-1 with a 3.75 ERA.


Royals DH Kendrys Morales has 10 RBI in last six games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Royals DH Kendrys Morales had an RBI single during Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Tigers. He also had one walk and one run.

Morales has at least one RBI in five of his last six games. He has 10 total in that span. 

The 31-year-old Morales has a hit in 22 of 25 games. He has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games. He is batting .293 with one home run, three doubles and 12 RBI in that span.


Rangers SS Andrus continues offensive, defensive woes Sunday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:47 am ET) Like much of the Rangers offense, the struggles for shortstop Elvis Andrus continued in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the A's. Despite drawing a couple of walks on the afternoon, Andrus went hitless and has seen his season batting average drop to .224.

Andrus' defense is suffering just as much as his offense is, as he committed his seventh error of the season on Sunday, which is the second-most in the American League. He has been at shortstop for every inning of every game for the Rangers so far. One might wonder if manager Jeff Bannister would consider giving the former two-time All-Star a rest in the coming days.


Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal hopes he's over recent slump
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) After hitting a walk-off home run to defeat the Diamondbacks on Sunday, Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said he hopes recent changes to his approach are starting to pay off, reports the Los Angeles Times.

"I've been trying to be more aggressively lately," he said.

Along with a shoulder issue, Grandal said his approach at the plate also led to his batting average dropping to .179 before raising it to .230.

"You have to look behind and who's hitting behind you," he said. "If you just get on first and you let the guy do his job, we're going to be good."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals 3B Mike Moustakas struggles in series against Tigers
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:59 am ET) Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas has had a terrific start to the 2015 season. But, he did struggle in the recent three-game series against the Tigers. 

"Moose" had just one hit in 12 at-bats, none for extra bases. He neither scored nor drove in a run for the Royals, as they lost two of the three games against their division rivals. On a positive note, Moustakas struck out only once in the series.

Despite the rough three games, Moustakas is still sporting a nifty .349/.378/.419 slash line over his last 10 games as he continues to rebound from a disappointing 2014 campaign.
