Royals signed INF Steve Tolleson to a minor league contract.

They wanted to add some infield depth in the organization following Mike Moustakas' (knee) season-ending injury. Tolleson has hit just .245/.299/.372 across parts of four big league seasons and has two hits in 20 at-bats at the Triple-A level this year.

Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored to help the Brewers take out the Braves 6-2 on Thursday.

If he's not doing it with his legs, he's doing it with his stick, as evidenced by Thursday's solo dinger. The homer was his second of the season to give him 16 RBI, and he's got 21 runs scored through Thursday's game. More importantly, Villar has 15 steals to lead the National League, and his .295/.392/.416 line is all gravy as well.

Tyler Flowers hit a two-run home run in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

Flowers, batting cleanup, got the Braves on the board early with the two-run jack off Brewers starter Wily Peralta. The backstop has split time with A.J. Pierzynski this season but has been representative when in the lineup, hitting .269/.360/.372 with two homers and 10 RBI in 25 games.
May 27 - 12:13 AM

Hernan Perez had a pinch-hit, two-run triple Thursday against the Braves.

Perez made a two-run game into a four-run game with his triple in the ninth inning, his first three-bagger of the year. The 25-year-old has been used sparingly by Brewers manager Craig Counsell this season but has posted a .291/.339/.509 line with three home runs and five steals in 55 at-bats. Given the current state of the squad, perhaps it's time to give Perez some more run to see what he can do with regular playing time.
May 27 - 12:10 AM

Ryan Braun hit his ninth home run of the year in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Braun belted a solo shot off Braves starter Matt Wisler in the fifth inning. He continues to produce when on the field, owning a .361/.427/.599 line with 30 RBI and 23 runs scored in 39 games. Staying between the white lines has been the tricky part, but his back seems to be feeling better and he should be ridden hard by fantasy owners while in the lineup.

Matt Wisler turned in a quality start Thursday against the Brewers, allowing three runs over six innings in a loss.

Wisler struck out seven while walking two, but it was a two-run single by opposing starter Wily Peralta and a solo home run by Ryan Braun that saddled him with the loss. Despite the outcome, the quality start was Wisler's fifth in a row, and he's now struck out seven in each of his last three outings. The 23-year-old will carry a respectable 3.08 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into Tuesday's start against the Giants.
May 27 - 12:04 AM

Wily Peralta held the Braves to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win Thursday.

In what has been typical Peralta fashion this year, even in victory he wasn't overly impressive, allowing seven hits and walking two on the night. The Braves' offense is underwhelming enough to make it work, though, earning the right-hander his third win of the year. Peralta owns a 6.62 ERA and 1.90 WHIP through 10 starts and isn't showing many signs of improvement. The Cardinals offense gets the next shot at the 27-year-old when the teams meet up Tuesday.
May 27 - 12:00 AM

George Springer hit a pair of solo home runs in the Astros' 4-2 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Springer led off the Astros' half of the first inning with a homer against Orioles starter Kevin Gausman, and he connected again in the fifth, also off Gausman. The multi-homer game was his first this season, giving him 11 home runs overall. The 26-year-old is hitting .270/.364/.492 and has been serving as the team's leadoff hitter, ahead of Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, in recent days.
