Twins' Miguel Sano: Homers in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7:44 pm ET) Sano went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Monday's loss to Houston.

Sano didn't start either of the past two games to rejuvenate, and it appears to have worked. He's sporting a .292/.406/.590 slash line with 12 homers, 39 RBI and 33 runs for the season and is well on his way to a high-end showing. However, with a .461 BABIP and 38.0 strikeout percentage, it'll probably be tough to maintain his current batting average and on-base percentage.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6:56 pm ET) Robinson was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

With Adrian Beltre (calf) coming off the disabled list Monday, Robinson was sent back to Round Rock without making an appearance for the big club. Robinson will likely stick around Triple-A, where he owns a .264/.384/.405 triple slash this season, unless the Rangers get hit with some injuries.

Blue Jays' Chris Coghlan: Missed Monday's game with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Astros' Alex Bregman: Hits two-run shot against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6:39 pm ET) Bregman went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run during Monday's win over Minnesota.

Bregman sports a respectable .254 batting average, but Monday's homer was just his 15th extra-base hit of the season and improved his slugging percentage to a disappointing .393. Additionally, this was just his fourth multi-hit game in May. It's probably wise to remain patient with the youngster, though. Bergman owns oodles of upside and is a mainstay in a dangerous lineup.

Blue Jays' Chris Coghlan: Scratched for unknown reason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5:49 pm ET) Coghlan was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Reds for an undisclosed reason, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Ezequiel Carrera will replace him in left field, batting ninth. Coghlan's status will be updated once the Blue Jays provide a reason for his absence from the lineup.

Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Activated, batting cleanup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5:35 pm ET) Beltre (calf) was activated ahead of Monday's game against the Rays, T.R. Sullivan of reports. He will play third base and bat cleanup.

As expected, Beltre is back with the Rangers lineup ahead of Monday's series opener with the Rays. Beltre, who slashed .300/.358/.521 with 32 homers last season, will face Erasmo Ramirez in his 2017 debut.

Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Expects to be activated Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4:55 pm ET) Manager Jeff Banister said Beltre (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list and play Monday night, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

After appearing in three extended spring training games over the past week with no setbacks, Beltre appears to be ready to rejoin the big club. While nothing is official, Banister said "all indications are" that Beltre will play in Monday's series opener against the Rays. If he is activated, expect Beltre to settle back in as the Rangers' everyday third baseman.

Blue Jays' Chris Coghlan: Gets second straight start in left field
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(3:21 pm ET) Coghlan will start in left field and bat ninth Monday against the Reds, Arden Zwelling of reports.

It's the second straight starting nod in left field for Coghlan, who recorded a base hit across three at-bats Sunday against the Rangers. Coghlan is only hitting .224/.312/.299 on the season, but with Ezequiel Carrera struggling at the plate lately, manager John Gibbons could experiment with Coghlan in an everyday role in order to see if he can provide more of a spark at the bottom of the lineup.

Twins' Miguel Sano: Back in cleanup spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10:57 am ET) Sano is back in the lineup Monday against the Astros.

After two consecutive "mental" days off for Sano, he'll return to action against Brad Peacock and the Astros. He'll resume his regular role at third base, batting cleanup in the order.

Yankees' Chase Headley: Back in starting lineup despite slump
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9:55 am ET) Headley is back in the lineup Monday against the Orioles.

Headley has missed back-to-back games for what appears to be performance-related reasons, but will man the hot corner and bat eighth in the order for the Memorial Day showdown against Baltimore. He remains in search of his first homer in May, as his last four-bagger came all the way back on April 19.
