Blue Jays OF Dalton Pompey apologizes for defensive woes
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:45 pm ET) Blue Jays outfielder Dalton Pompey has been struggling at the plate and in the field, and after the team's loss to Atlanta on Sunday, the rookie said he has been playing "somewhat scared," per MLB.com. 

Pompey misplayed a fly ball in the first inning of the game that allowed three runs to score and later made a poor throw over the head of third baseman Josh Donaldson, allowing another run to come home. The rookie, who is hitting .188, apologized to his teammates and fans at the start of his postgame media availability. 

"It's really tough," Pompey said. "I'm trying to come here and make a difference on this team. I found ever since the season started, I've been playing somewhat scared just because I don't want to make a mistake."


Blue Jays hopeful Jose Reyes, Devon Travis will play Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:32 pm ET) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is hopeful shortstop Jose Reyes (rib) and second baseman Devon Travis (rib) will be able to play Tuesday against the Orioles, according to SportsNet.

Reyes has been out since Friday with the injury and is expected to be re-evaluated before the game Tuesday. He is hitting .324 with five RBI in 37 at-bats. Travis left Sunday's game after being hit by a pitch in the first inning. The team later confirmed Travis does not have a fracture to his rib. 

He currently leads the team with a .356 batting average in 45 at-bats.


Nationals CF Denard Span says he's 'full strength' after return
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:29 pm ET) Denard Span made his season debut for the Nationals on Sunday after missing the first 12 games with a core injury, and made his presence felt quickly with a hit and run scored, per MASN Sports. 

Span's return to the lineup came sooner than many expected, and after playing his first game in months, the center fielder said he's nearly 100 percent, although he admitted being a bit winded after scoring from second base on a hit.

"I think I'm full strength. I'm not as quick as I was last year, I guess, (at) this time," Span said. "It's still a process. I am going to continue to get stronger, I think, as time goes on, but I feel good running."
