  • PHI Right Fielder #3
    Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with three home runs and six RBI on Tuesday, leading the Phillies to a 9-4 win over the Reds.
    This is exactly why we don’t overreact to small sample sizes as Harper came into the night 0-for-13 to start the season. It’s safe to say he was seeing the ball well tonight. Harper’s first home run was 107.7 mph off the bat and traveled 420 feet and while his second one was a more modest 367 feet at 103.3 off the bat, he ended the night with a 422-foot bomb that was 108.3 mph. Even his out was a 100 mph lineout. Yeah, he’s gonna be just fine.
  • KC Starting Pitcher
    Royals recalled LHP Anthony Veneziano from Triple-A Omaha.
    Veneziano joins the Royals’ active roster for the first time this season. The 26-year-old appeared in just two games for Kansas City last season where he allowed two hits, two walks and a strikeout in 2 1/3 innings pitched. He’s posted a 3.27 ERA with a 8/4 K/BB ratio in his 11 innings pitched with Omaha this season.
  • NYM Third Baseman #22
    Mets are optimistic that Brett Baty (hamstring) will avoid the injured list and be back in the lineup in the next few days.
    Good news for the 24-year-old third baseman. Baty left Tuesday’s game after he experienced tightness in his left hamstring. The former top prospect has gotten off to a good start this season slashing .305/.359/.373 with nine RBI in his 64 plate appearances.
  • CWS Starting Pitcher #51
    Jared Shuster will serve as the White Sox’ 27th man for Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Royals.
    Shuster was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte earlier this week, so the doubleheader gives the White Sox a chance to bring him back without an official roster move. He’s pitched well in his two appearances where he’s yielded one earned run in his 6 1/3 innings pitched. He’ll head back to the minors at the conclusion of the twin bill.
  • BAL Catcher #91
    Orioles designated C David Bañuelos for assignment.
    This was a quick stay with the Orioles as the move was necessary to call up RHP Albert Suárez for Wednesday’s game against the Twins as a spot starter. The 27-year-old backstop slashed .270/.369/.526 in 48 games at Double-A in 2023 in the Twins organization.
  • Starting Pitcher #92
    Orioles selected the contract of RHP Albert Suárez from Triple-A Norfolk and will start in Wednesday’s series finale against the Twins.
    It’s been eight years since Suárez has made a major league start, but the 34-year-old will get his opportunity today. Suárez inked a minor league deal with the Orioles in the offseason and showed promise in spring camp where he posted a 5.17 ERA, 1.21 WHIP with an impressive 19/2 K/BB ratio across 15 2/3 innings. The veteran pitcher has made 40 major league appearances, all coming with the Giants during the 2016 and 2017 seasons with a career 4.51 ERA across 115 2/3 innings.
  • MIA Relief Pitcher #51
    Marlins recalled RHP Declan Cronin from Triple-A Jacksonville.
    Cronin was sent down to the minors when Miami activated Vladimir Gutierrez, but the 26-year-old will join the active roster after George Soriano was sent down to Triple-A. Cronin made two appearances in the Marlins’ first series of the season where he didn’t allow a run in his four innings pitched. He’ll look to add relief depth for a Marlins team that has gotten off to a brutal start.
  • MIA Relief Pitcher #62
    Marlins optioned RHP George Soriano to Triple-A Jacksonville.
    The 25-year-old reliever struggled in his eight appearances in the majors. Soriano posted a 10.29 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and a 8/6 K/BB ratio across seven innings pitched. He’ll continue to develop down at the minor league level.
  • ARI Second Baseman #4
    Ketel Marte went 4-for-6 and homered in the ninth as the Diamondbacks edged the Cubs 12-11 in 10 innings Tuesday.
    Marte’s homer off Adbert Alzolay tied the game with two outs in the ninth, and the Diamondbacks quickly won the game on Randal Grichuk’s pinch-hit single leading off the bottom of the 10th. The homer was Marte’s fourth of the year, and he’s batting .301/.361/.534 in 83 plate appearances.
  • ARI Starting Pitcher #47
    Tommy Henry yielded five runs in 4 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Cubs.
    Henry isn’t a big velocity guy, but his 89.5 mph average with his fastball tonight was his lowest mark in 29 big-league starts and he was also down some last time out. With a 6.87 ERA in four starts, he seems like the right choice to get bounced from Arizona’s rotation to make room for Jordan Montgomery.
  • CHC Starting Pitcher #28
    Kyle Hendricks was lit up for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
    We doubt the Cubs will pull Hendricks from the rotation with Jameson Taillon returning, but manager Craig Counsell simply must employ a quicker hook with the veteran right-hander. Hendricks should have been pulled after giving up four runs in four innings tonight. Instead, he was left in to face the top of the Diamondbacks order for a third time in the fifth and wound up allowing three more runs while getting just one additional out. It left Hendricks with a 12.71 ERA after four starts. He’s allowed seven homers in 17 innings this season after giving up a total of 13 in 137 innings last year.
