May already? Where does the time go?

Another relatively light Monday schedule saw just three MOTs in action.

Kevin Pillar singled, walked, and struck out in four official at-bats as the Toronto Blue Jays (9-17) beat up on the host NY Yankees, 7-1.

Ian Kinsler was on base three times with a single and two walks as the Detroit Tigers (13-12) beat up on the visiting Cleveland Indians, 7-1.

Alex Bregman was 1-for-3 with a walk as the Houston Astros (17-9) defeated the visiting Texas Rangers, 6-2. Here he weighs in on one of those silly baseball “fights.”

Ryan Braun missed last night’s 7-5 win by the Milwaukee Brewers (14-12) over the host St. Louis Cardinals with a tight right trapezius.

Richard Bleier, called up by the Baltimore Orioles (16-8) on Sunday, did not appear in the team’s 5-2 win over the host Boston Red Sox.

Scott Feldman is scheduled to make the start tonight for the Cincinnati Reds against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.

Craig Breslow and the Minnesota Twins and Danny Valencia and the Seattle Mariners had Monday off.

Joc Pederson remains on the disabled list for the LA Dodgers (14-13) who beat the visiting San Francisco Giants, 4-3. He is scheduled for a rehab start on Monday.
