This week’s Top 10: 1. Royals 2. Cardinals 3. Dodgers 4. Astros 5. Tigers 6. Giants 7. Nationals 8. Cubs 9. Twins 10. Rays. Fire away.

Giants dump Casey McGehee

The defending champs designated McGehee for assignment, a rather surprising move considering they signed McGehee this offseason to be their third baseman. It hasn't worked out as McGehee -- a 7-year vet -- was hitting .200.

Matt Holliday a late scratch vs. Royals

The Cardinals outfielder will miss the I-70 series finale with a left-arm contusion. Bad news for St. Louis, which relies on Holliday's exquisite on-base skills (.434 OBP). Follow live

Indians catcher Gomes activated

Yan Gomes returns for today's game vs. the Reds. Gomes, who hit .278 with 21 HRs last season, missed more than a month with a sprained right knee.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Terry Collins says that when Dillon Gee inserted, it will be a straight 6-man rotation, at least for the short term.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Mets now say Dillon Gee will throw one more rehab start and then insert him in the rotation the first week of June. Rehab with Binghamton.

Olney: foreign substance rules flawed

"This is an absurd situation because these two pitchers were ejected for doing something that everybody in baseball knows that pitchers have been doing for years."


Baltimore pitcher gets an early exit

Orioles pitcher Brian Matusz was tossed for the use of a foreign substance in the 12th inning, and the Marlins responded with a walk-off 1-0 win in the 13th.
