Rays' Matt Moore: Wins second game of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6:46 pm ET) Moore (2-3) tossed 6.2 innings Saturday against the Yankees, in which he allowed only three runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out seven.

The 26-year-old lefty lasted more than six innings for the first time this month, and Saturday's performance has been the best he's done over the course of May. Moore continues to struggle with the homers and he's allowed at least one in eight of his last 10 starts, but at least he showed a marked improvement over what he's done in the past few weeks. His next start is scheduled to happen against the Twins on Thursday.


Yankees' Michael Pineda: Allows six runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6:44 pm ET) Pineda (2-6) only lasted 3.2 innings and allowed six runs on nine hits while fanning three Saturday against the Rays.

Pineda struggled badly, and this was his worst outing of the season. His ERA ballooned to 6.92, and has allowed at least six runs in three of his last starts, so things have been rough for him of late. The 27-year-old will try to bounce back in his next outing against Detroit on Thursday.


Angels' C.J. Wilson: To make rehab start at Triple-A Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5:38 pm ET) Wilson (shoulder) will make his second rehab start Monday at Triple-A Salt Lake, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

According to Fletcher, Wilson will make at least two starts at Triple-A before the Angels consider activating him from the 60-day DL. Wilson made his first rehab appearance Wednesday at High-A Inland Empire, allowing one earned run over 4.0 innings while striking out four batters. Given that he needs a minimum of two starts at Triple-A, Wilson appears to be on track for a return closer to mid-June than early-June.


Red Sox's Rick Porcello: No-decision in Saturday loss to Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4:38 pm ET) Porcello did not factor into the decision in Boston's 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday. He surrendered seven hits, four earned runs and a walk over 6.2 innings, striking out five.

It was a relatively solid outing for the veteran righty, who was largely effective outside of a three-run third inning. Porcello fired 75 of his 106 pitches for strikes, and impressively notched first-pitch strikes on 24 of the 28 batters he faced. He also induced 11 swinging strikes, and got back into the seventh inning after having failed to reach the mark in either of his last two starts. The 27-year-old will face off against a tough Orioles squad next Thursday in Baltimore.


Rangers' Yu Darvish: Activated from DL, will start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2:36 pm ET) Darvish (elbow) has been activated off the disabled list and he will get the start Saturday against Pittsburgh.

Darvish will be making his much-anticipated 2016 debut Saturday after missing the entire 2015 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. However, he won't likely go very deep in Saturday's outing as the Rangers will keep him on a pitch limit between 85 and 90 pitches. The Rangers optioned outfielder Joey Gallo in a corresponding move Saturday to clear a spot on the active roster for Darvish.


Athletics' Sonny Gray: Feels good after bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1:34 pm ET) Gray (back) feels good following his first bullpen session since being placed on the disabled list, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Gray is hoping to return from the DL on June 6, and appears to be on track for that goal. He was placed on the 15-day DL due to a strained right trapezius muscle. He sports a 6.19 ERA on the season.


Rangers' Cole Hamels: Hit hard by Pirates in Friday defeat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12:54 pm ET) Hamels (5-1) surrendered eight hits, six runs (five earned) and two walks over 4.2 innings in Friday's 9-1 loss to the Pirates. He struck out five.

The veteran southpaw suffered his first loss of the season, and the long ball was a big part of his undoing. Hamels was touched up for a solo shot by Starling Marte in the second, and then fell victim to a three-run knockout blow from Jung-Ho Kang in the fifth. The 32-year-old has now given up eight homers over the last four starts, and has seen his ERA rise almost a full run during May to 3.34. He'll try to bounce back next Wednesday versus Trevor Bauer and the Indians.


Royals' Chris Young: Back from DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10:14 am ET) Young (forearm) has been activated from the DL, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City reports.

The veteran had been battling tightness in his throwing forearm, but he threw a successful sim game earlier in the week, clearing the final hurdle in his rehab. Young won't return to the Royals' rotation right away; instead, he'll assume a bullpen role, with Danny Duffy appearing to be locked into a rotation spot. In a corresponding move, Brian Flynn was optioned back to Triple-A Omaha to clear a roster spot.


Red Sox's Henry Owens: Wild in loss Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7:12 am ET) Owens fought with his mechanics on Thursday, allowing five runs on six hits, five walks and three hit batsmen in 3.1 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket, the Pawtucket Times reports. "He didn't look comfortable out there today," said Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles. "He really didn't have command."

Given how far off the rails Owens has become, it's hard to believe the left-hander was being considered for a spot in Boston's starting rotation during spring training. In a three-game cameo role at Boston earlier this season, he walked more batters (13) than innings pitched (12.1). He's pitched better for Pawtucket, but the pesky issue of command continues to haunt him. As the Red Sox consider their starting depth options, you have to think they'd hesitate to bring up Owens in a pinch.


Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Expected to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(6:54 am ET) Rodriguez (knee) will start for Boston on Tuesday against Baltimore, the Boston Globe reports.

Rodriguez will replace Clay Buchholz in Boston's rotation, after Buchholz pitched himself out of a starting job. The left-handed Rodriguez has made five rehab starts at Triple-A Pawtucket, his most recent one last Tuesday was the best of the bunch. After having some issues with a knee brace, Rodriguez was given a new brace, which made him feel more comfortable and, more importantly, confident when he allowed one run on four hits while striking out seven and walking none in seven innings.
