(TSX / STATS) -- The Baltimore Orioles activated right-hander Gabriel Ynoa from the 10-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Ynoa, who has been nursing a right hamstring strain, pitched in a simulated game on Monday.

The 23-year-old Dominican won his lone appearance of the season on May 5, after allowing six hits in six scoreless innings in a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox.


A's try to keep power amped up against Marlins

(TSX / STATS) -- OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics powered their way to a 3-1 series win over the Boston Red Sox last weekend at Oakland Coliseum, hitting eight home runs to give them 64 for the season.

Now the A's will try to continue their power surge when they open a two-game interleague series against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night at home.


Twins' Hughes to spend time on DL with biceps injury

(TSX / STATS) -- The Minnesota Twins placed Phil Hughes on the 10-day disabled list with inflammation of the right biceps tendon and recalled Kyle Gibson from Triple-A Rochester to start Monday's road game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Hughes owns a 4-3 mark with a 5.74 ERA in 11 starts this season for Minnesota.


Cashner eyes end of road (skid) vs. Red Sox

(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- The red-hot Texas Rangers have 11 wins in their last 12 games, but they hit Fenway Park to face the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night with a starting pitcher who has lived a long nightmare on the road.

Andrew Cashner, who faces reigning Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello in the opener of a three-game series -- and a six-game Boston homestand -- has failed to win a road game since Sept. 16, 2015.


Mariners' Bergman to start opener at Nationals

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- It is amazing what leaving Denver can do for pitchers and their confidence, not to mention their ERAs.

That appears to be the case for Christian Bergman, who is slated to start on the mound for the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday at Washington in the first of a three-game interleague series against the first-place Nationals.


White Sox, D-backs take hot offenses into interleague series

(TSX / STATS) -- PHOENIX -- The Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks are at the top of their games heading into the opener of their three-game interleague series at Chase Field on Monday.

It remains to be seen if the loss of the designated hitter will slow the White Sox, who won the final three games of a four-game weekend series in Seattle by outscoring the Mariners 26-3.


Astros look to bounce back vs. Tigers

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros experienced a relatively carefree run to the best record in baseball, but they encountered some tumult over the weekend in the form of a sweep by the Cleveland Indians and the loss of two key cogs to injuries.

After a rare bad weekend, the Astros look to get back on track Monday night in the opener of a four-game series with the Detroit Tigers.


Giants look to continue rebound as they visit Cubs

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs will go for their fifth win in the last six games when they open a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.

Despite the Cubs' recent success, manager Joe Maddon is not satisfied. He is looking for an error-free performance from his team, which is 22-20 on the season and 11-10 at Wrigley Field.


Braves look to avenge sweep by Pirates

(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- At least it won't be snowing when the Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates meet for the second time this season.

The clubs begin a four-game series on Monday in Atlanta, where temperatures are expected to be in the low 80s. When they met in early April in Pittsburgh, the players were bundled in coats and ski caps to deal with temperatures in the 30s and the occasional slow flurry.
