Reds' Billy Hamilton, Devin Mesoraco out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:01 pm ET) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton (groin) and Devin Mesoraco (hip) are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Hamilton came out of Saturday's game with a groin strain. With the speedster out of the lineup, Skip Schumaker will lead off for the Reds Sunday night. Mesoraco hasn't played since last Sunday due to a hip injury, though he was expected to be available at some point this weekend. Tucker Barnhart will draw the start at catcher Sunday.

The Reds are heavy underdogs (+165) against the Cardinals in St. Louis Sunday.


Braves' Shelby Miller strikes out six in win vs. Blue Jays
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:52 pm ET) Braves pitcher Shelby Miller earned a win Sunday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and three walks in six innings while striking out six in his team's 5-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

Miller (2-0) cruised through five innings before running into trouble with two outs in the sixth, when he put two men on base with a walk and a single before watching both score on a double.

It was the first quality start of the season for Miller, who lasted just five innings in each of his first two starts but allowing just one run combined in those two games. He has posted a 1.69 ERA and 11:7 K:BB ratio in 16 innings heading into Saturday's matchup with the Phillies.


Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) remains without timetable
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:43 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) continued his throwing program Sunday, throwing for a third straight day from about 90 feet, but he remains without a timetable to get back on the mound, TrueBlueLA.com reports.

"I don't know when I'll be able to throw a bullpen. I've just been throwing outside on the field," Ryu said Sunday through an interpreter. "So far it's just making sure I have no pain. At this condition I probably could [throw a bullpen session] but I haven't thrown long toss yet."

Ryu hasn't pitched since March 17 due to a shoulder impingement, but he isn't focusing on a specific timetable at this point.

"I haven't thought about a timetable," Ryu said. "I'm just doing what they tell me."

Ryu did say that he's not feeling any pain in his shoulder while throwing.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3:38 pm ET) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer left Sunday's game against the Brewers after getting hit with a pitch from Matt Garza in the rib-cage area attempting to bunt, according to the team.

He's reported as experiencing pain in his rib cage area.

Jung Ho Kang replaced Mercer in the game.

Mercer's status for Monday against the Cubs is unknown.


Mets' Jerry Blevins suffers fractured forearm Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:35 pm ET) Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins suffered a fractured left forearm after being hit by a line drive in Sunday's game against the Marlins, the team announced.

Blevins was injured on his fourth pitch of the day, though the Mets were able to record an out on the play. He's tossed five perfect innings over seven appearances, racking up one win and four strikeouts. The southpaw is now facing an extended absence.


Mets' Travis d'Arnaud hit by pitch, fractures hand
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:30 pm ET) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud was removed from Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit by a pitch. He was then diagnosed with a fractured right hand after being examined, WOR 710 AM reports.

d'Arnaud was struck on the hand, and after being checked out by the trainer, he came out of the game. The catcher went 2 for 3 with an RBI before being replaced. He has hit .317/.356/.537 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 41 at-bats.

d'Arnaud was replaced by Anthony Recker after suffering the injury. Recker could be in for extended playing time while d'Arnaud is on the shelf, or the team could promote Kevin Plawecki to serve as the team's regular catcher and keep Recker in a reserve role.


Padres' Jedd Gyorko may be close to breaking out of slump
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3:20 pm ET) Despite his struggles at the plate this season, which includes an 0 for 5 on Saturday, Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko's may be close to finding his swing, according to UTSanDiego.com.

Two of Gyorko's five outs on Saturday were drives to the warning track in center field with the wind blowing in at Wrigley Field.

"Obviously, you want the hits to start falling, but we’re not out chasing a hit," Gyorko said. "It’s a process that we started, and I think it’s starting to come out a little bit."

Coming into Sunday, Gyorko's batting average is .121 -- the lowest among the team's regulars.

"Any other given day, Jedd probably has two or three home runs here," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He seems to be laying off a little bit of the ball down and away, laying off the high fastball. Didn’t result in any hits [Saturday], but the quality of the at-bats seem to be better."


Padres want Wil Myers to stay aggressive in leadoff spot
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3:17 pm ET) Padres center fielder Wil Myers has yet to take a walk and has seen the fifth fewest pitches per plate appearance among leadoff hitters in the National League, but the Padres like what he brings to the table batting leadoff and want him to stay aggressive, MLB.com reports.

"Everyone has their own style of how they play, and Wil, being the prototypical leadoff hitter isn't who he is," manager Bud Black said. "[We want him to] be aggressive and do what he does. Ultimately, down the road, we'll see where he sets up in the batting order. But for now, and with this group, it makes sense for him to lead off."

Hitting coach Mark Kotsay indicated the team doesn't want Myers to change his approach in his new role as a leadoff hitter.

"I think in terms of growth and development, we've seen him swing early, we've seen him take pitches. He's done a good job adjusting to the role," Kotsay said. " … But by no means do we expect him to be a prototypical leadoff hitter who is strictly an on-base guy. We don't have the expectation for him to see a lot of pitches. The competitiveness of the at-bat and quality of the plate appearance, at this point, he's done a good job of it."

Myers has hit .300/.314/.460 with one home run, seven RBI and two stolen bases in 50 at-bats.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
