Athletics' Khris Davis: Mashes 19th homer against Giants
Khris Davis, LF, OAK

News: Davis homered, his 19th, in a 2-for-4 game with three runs scored and a walk in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Davis is raking over his past 14 games, in which he has mashed five homers and owns a .303/.350/.607 batting line. He also now has three walks in this stretch, as many as he managed to draw in the entire month of April. He'll need to find plate discipline to keep this hot streak going, as pitchers are likely to start treating him with much more care as he keeps putting balls into the seats.

Orioles' Hyun Soo Kim: Homers in 2-for-3 game against Padres

News: Kim hit his second homer as part of a 2-for-3 game with two walks, two runs scored and three RBI Tuesday against the Padres

Eight of Kim's first nine extra-base hits were doubles, so it was good to see him finally muscle one over the fence. The most impressive part of Kim's game thus far has been his combination of contact and discipline -- his two walks Tuesday bring his BB:K to an even 16:16, the main driver behind his excellent .347/.438/.466 line through 137 plate appearances.

Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury: Scores lone Yankees run in loss
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF, NYY
6/28/2016
News: Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with a double and a run in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Rangers.

New York's offense failed to get anything going against starter Cole Hamels, but they at least managed to avoid a shutout thanks in large part to Ellsbury's success against reliever Jake Diekman. The former Red Sox outfielder is surely envious of his old team's current lineup, as he has scored just 32 runs as the regular leadoff man for a subpar Yankees offense.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Picks up three hits and scores twice Tuesday
Ian Desmond, CF, TEX
6/28/2016
News: Desmond went 3-for-5 with two runs Tuesday against the Yankees.

All three of Desmond's hits were singles, but he still came around to score twice thanks to productive at-bats from Adrian Beltre and Prince Fielder behind him. Two of those singles were of the infield variety, as the 30-year-old demonstrated that his speed is useful for more than just the 13 steals he has swiped this season. Desmond continues to be on pace for a career year with a .326/.377/.533 line.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Hits off tee for second consecutive day Tuesday
Michael Brantley, LF, CLE

News: Brantley (shoulder) was able to hit off a tee for the second consecutive day Tuesday, MLB.com reports. "I think he took 50 or 55 swings and by all accounts really did well," manager Terry Francona said. "We'll let him continue on this path until we get home, and then we'll get our eyes on him and maybe start to set up a little bit of a calendar."

Brantley's most certainly out until after the All Star break given his current status and the Indians wanting to avoid another setback but it's his first step forward since receiving a cortisone shot last week for some biceps tendinitis.

Lorenzo Cain
Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Exits Tuesday with strained hamstring

News: Cain left Tuesday's game with a strained hamstring, FOX Sports Kansas City's Joel Goldberg reports.

He went 1-for-4 before leaving and being replaced by Jarrod Dyson in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. Manager Ned Yost said he was unsure of the severity of the hamstring issue, and said Cain will be re-evaluated Wednesday. Cain most recently dealt with a hamstring issue back in 2015, and he missed several games dealing with the injury. Dyson would be the likely replacement in center field if Cain misses some games this time around.

Rays' Brandon Guyer: Activated from DL

News: Guyer (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day DL on Tuesday, 620 WDAE's Steve Carney reports.

He had an impressive .271/.365/.472 slash line with six homers in 168 plate appearances prior to the DL stint. Guyer figures to see a good chunk of playing time, at least in the short term, as Steven Souza, Kevin Kiermaier and Mikie Mahtook are still on the DL and Corey Dickerson is also ailing. Jaff Decker was designated for assignment as a corresponding move.

White Sox's Melky Cabrera: Leaves Tuesday with sore wrist

News: Cabrera left Tuesday's game with left wrist soreness and is day-to-day, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports.

He suffered a similar injury a couple weeks ago against the Indians, but was able to return the very next day. He went 0-for-3 before exiting and was replaced by Jason Coats in left field.

Carlos Beltran
Yankees' Carlos Beltran: MRI comes back clean, day-to-day
Carlos Beltran, RF, NYY
6/28/2016
News: Beltran (hamstring) left Tuesday's game and MRI results showed that his right hamstring cramped up, Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News reports.

Manager Joe Girardi said that the MRI came back "clean" and was relived that the injury to Beltran was not more serious. Beltran left Tuesday's game in the first inning, grabbing his hamstring after rounding first base. The 39-year-old could be back in the lineup as early as Wednesday, but will most likely be held out of that contest as a precaution.

Athletics' Max Muncy: Optioned to Triple-A Nashville

News: Muncy was optioned back to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

In order to make room for Josh Reddick coming off the DL with a thumb injury, Muncy was sent back down to Nashville. Muncy went 9-for-35 with two doubles and two RBI during his brief stay with the A's and will likely get another with the club later on this summer. With Nashville this season, Muncy is batting .263/.366/.442 with seven home runs and 20 RBI.
