Blue Jays signed RHP Jake Petricka to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Petricka can earn a $1.3 million salary if he makes the Blue Jays' major league roster and another potential $500,000 in performance-based incentives. The 29-year-old right-hander was non-tendered by the White Sox in early December after posting a brutal 7.01 ERA over 25 2/3 innings out of their bullpen in 2017. Petricka was a very effective reliever between the 2013-2015 seasons, but elbow troubles have somewhat derailed his career.

Jason Hammel struck out 10 Rangers over 5 1/3 scoreless innings Sunday, leading the Royals to a 5-3 victory.

Hammel scattered four hits and two walks while compiling his highest single-game strikeout total since June 1, 2015. He somewhat surprisingly cruised over the Cardinals his last time out, giving him two above-average outings in a row after he'd posted a 6.28 ERA through his first nine starts this year. What's the real Hammel? The answer is usually somewhere in between, which, unfortunately for fantasy players, doesn't move the needle much on a bad Royals team. Still, it's worth monitoring his start Saturday against the Athletics to see if he can lend some more legitimacy to the act.

Wilson Ramos reached base three times Sunday in the Rays’ victory over the Orioles.

Ramos singled and scored in the third inning, walked in the sixth and singled again in the eighth. He’s been red-hot at the plate, hitting an absurd .448 with two homers and seven RBI throughout his eight-game hitting streak. His .310 batting average this year leads all major league catchers.

J.A. Happ yielded six hits and three runs (two earned) over 6 2/3 innings Sunday in the Blue Jays’ win over the Phillies.

Pitching against his former team, the 35-year-old left-hander delivered eight strikeouts and two walks while throwing 63 of his 100 pitches for strikes. Happ blanked Philadelphia over his first five frames before allowing four hits (all singles) and three runs in the sixth inning. He’s been excellent over his last three starts, winning all three while contributing a 10.02 K/9 and a stingy 1.74 ERA. He’ll aim for his eighth victory Saturday against Detroit.

Carlos Gonzalez went a perfect 4-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored to propel the Rockies to an 8-2 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Matt Harvey was throwing batting practice, but it was during the first inning of Sunday's game, unfortunately for Harvey. CarGo took advantage, mashing a ball 461 feet to right field for his fifth homer of the year. The four-hit game was especially rare -- Gonzalez had just seven hits in 43 at-bats in the month of May prior to Sunday. Injuries and age have caught up to the 32-year-old, contributing to his .241/.286/.414 line through Sunday's game.
May 27 - 6:42 PM

Bryce Harper socked his NL-leading 16th homer Sunday in the Nationals’ win over Miami.

He took left-hander Jarlin Garcia deep for a solo blast in the sixth inning but was hitless in his other three trips to the plate. Harper boasts impressive power numbers (16 long balls, 38 RBI) but he’s been striking out a ton (11 punch-outs in his last four games) and his batting average has now dipped into the low .230s. That’s well below his career mark of .282.
May 27 - 5:56 PM

Jesus Aguilar homered in his second straight game and drove in four runs to help the Brewers outlast the Mets 8-7 on Sunday.

Aguilar knocked an RBI single in the first inning before turning on an inside pitch for a three-run jack in the third. The homer was his second in as many games and his ninth on the year, giving him 30 RBI and 25 runs scored. Many were late to the 27-year-old's coming out party, but it's in full swing -- through Sunday, Aguilar is hitting .325/.390/.595 overall. Miraculously still available in 42 percent of Yahoo leagues, that number should be lower given what he's done through the season's first two months.
May 27 - 5:43 PM

Bud Norris pitched a perfect ninth inning Sunday to secure an 8-6 win and a series win over the Pirates.

Two days, two flawless saves for the right-hander, who has bounced back well after a rough outing against the Royals earlier in the week. Through 24 appearances, Norris now has a 2.49 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 34/4 K/BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings of work. He's also perfect in save chances, converting all 11 opportunities to date.
May 27 - 5:10 PM

Mike Foltynewicz allowed three hits and one run over seven stellar innings Sunday in the Braves’ win over the Red Sox.

The 26-year-old collected seven strikeouts and three walks over 113 pitches. Foltynewicz dominated with his high-90s fastball on Sunday and had a no-hitter going until the sixth inning when Andrew Bentintendi broke it up with a one-out double. Benintendi would later score on Mitch Moreland’s RBI triple. Sunday’s start was the right-hander’s longest outing of the year, both in terms of pitch count and innings pitched. He’ll take an elite 2.55 ERA into his next start Friday versus Washington.

Ronald Acuna (knee) was transported to a nearby hospital to undergo further evaluation.

Acuna was removed from Sunday's game against the Red Sox after he hyperextended his knee while crossing first base. Astoundingly, he was able to walk off of the field under his own power, but he isn't out of the woods yet. Expect the Braves to provide another update on his status shortly.
May 27 - 4:36 PM

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Joe Mauer (concussion) being activated from the disabled list on Thursday is looking "increasingly likely."

Great to hear. Mauer was placed on the 7-day concussion DL a little over a week ago, but he's feeling much better and will hit in the batting cage again Sunday. If that goes well, he'll work out on the field Monday. Mauer has put up a .283/.404/.355 batting line with one home run over 38 games for the Twins this season.
May 27 - 3:11 PM

Ronald Acuna was lifted from Sunday's game against the Red Sox with a left knee injury.

Acuna looked to hyperextend his knee after crossing first base, flipped over and went down in pain. He was able to walk off the field on his own, which would seem to be a good sign, but he did have a noticeable limp. The Braves are only saying for now that Acuna is dealing with knee and lower back pain, but the outfielder is surely headed for tests and an update on his condition could be available later Sunday.
