Rays Designate Rob Refsnyder  

The Rays have designated infielder/outfielder Rob Refsnyder for assignment, as Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times tweets. It seems that’s the roster move to enable the activation of center fielder Kevin Kiermaier. Refsnyder, 27, received a forty-game trial run in Tampa Bay, his fourth-straight season with some MLB action. As before, however, he failed…

Marlins muster more comeback magic vs. Giants  

A week ago in Miami, the Marlins came back in four straight games against the Giants, and won three of those contests. At AT&T Park on Monday night, they found more late-inning magic. Miguel Rojas slapped an opposite-field single off closer Hunter Strickland, underlining a three-run ninth inning that lifted the Marlins to a 5-4 win over the Giants in the series opener.

deGrom stellar again as dominant run continues  

Circumstances had grown unfathomable enough for Jacob deGrom that after the National League Cy Young Award candidate's last start, teammate Todd Frazier approached him to apologize for the Mets' offensive woes. Over a 10-start stretch, deGrom had posted a 0.87 ERA. The Mets were 2-8 in those games. So it was a completely foreign feeling when, in the seventh inning of a 12-2 blowout over the Rockies on Monday, deGrom joked that he almost didn't want to beat out a fielder's choice because he didn'

Altherr's walk-off double sends Phils to wild win  

Aaron Altherr's two-run double in the 10th was the winner in a game with a lot of late action. Tommy Pham's 10th-inning homer put the Cards up after they came back from 2 down in the 9th. Yadier Molina scored on a wild-pitch strikeout that would have ended the game, before Kolten Wong tied it with a pinch-hit single. The Phillies' bullpen wasted a dominant effort from Nick Pivetta, who fanned a career-high 13, but Philly didn't score after a 4-run 1st keyed by an Odubel Herrera homer.
