The Yankees still can't figure out what is exactly wrong with DH Matt Holliday. Holliday had a series of test and couldn't not find what is making him feel like all his energy has been zapped. Tonight will be the third game he has missed. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the team will soon have to consider a DL stint if Holliday doesn't improve soon.

Tyler Wade, 22, grew up a Yankee fan, idolizing Derek Jeter. Wade, being in the Yankees' clubhouse as a member of the team, is "surreal," he said.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Although John Farrell says he "wouldn't rule it out" that Red Sox would use others at DH even after Hanley Ramirez returns, he stressed need to not "completely turn away from what Hanley did last year. I think he's still a key member in our lineup." Ramirez has struggled vs. lefties, batting only .143/.333/.229, far from his career slash line vs. lefties of .300/.381/.523.

Great line by Joe Maddon after beating the Nationals on Monday while fielding the youngest starting lineup in baseball this season as several players were in Triple-A until recently: "If this is a spring training lineup we might get a call (from the league office)." In spring games teams are required to have at least four regulars start in every game.

The Yankees hung on to a win Monday as they beat the White Sox, 6-5. After Chasen Shreve gave up a three-run homer to Tim Anderson in the 9th, Yankees manager Joe Girardi turned to Aroldis Chapman for final two outs. Chapman allowed an RBI double to Jose Abreu before picking up the last outs. Aaron Judge went 0-for-2, but walked three times.

The Cubs didn't pitch around Bryce Harper - even when it mattered most. Harper went walkless in five plate appearances, including in the ninth, when he came up with two on and two outs and the Nats trailing 5-3. Harper (3-for-5) singled off closer Wade Davis to load the bases, but Ryan Zimmerman (0-for-5) fanned to end it.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs beat the Nats 5-4 behind one of their better efforts of the season -- at least until the ninth inning. It began with Willson Contreras hitting a lead off home run then continued on the mound as Eddie Butler and the Cubs relief staff got the job done over the first 8 innings. The Cubs added three in the ninth and needed every one of those runs. Hector Rondon and Wade Davis combined to give up 4 in the bottom of the inning but Davis got Zimmerman to strike out to end a heart stopping game.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees rookie Jordan Montgomery continues to impress. Montgomery went seven innings and allowed just one-run to the White Sox. With the Yankees up 6-1 in the eighth, it looks like Montgomery will improve to 6-4 as he dropped his ERA to 3.53.

SS Brendan Rodgers went 2-for-5 with two singles, two strikeouts and a run scored in his Double-A home debut with the Hartford Yard Goats. His final at-bat in the bottom of the eighth was a three-pitch strikeout that ended with the prospect chasing a high heater. Rodgers also had two errors -- that led to three runs -- and a couple of flashy plays in the field to cap off his up-and-down evening.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Albert Almora's successful squeeze play tonight was the third RBI by the Cubs via a bunt play this season, tied for the most in the majors. In fact, since Joe Maddon took over as manager in 2015 the Cubs have the most RBI (16) in baseball on bunt plays.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees have announced a right hamstring strain for Starlin Castro. If he needs to go on the DL, then Ronald Torryes would likely play second regularly. There is a chance the Yankees could call-up prospect Tyler Wade, but he would have to be put on the 40-man roster.

Carmine Carcieri ESPN 

Through six innings, Rockies top prospect Brendan Rodgers is 2-for-4 with two singles and a run scored in his Double-A home debut. The single and run came as part of a two-run fourth for Hartford.

The Cubs traded DFA'd pitcher Zac Rosscup to the Rockies for righty Matt Carasiti. He's 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA and 13 saves at Triple-A this season. He made 19 MLB appearances for the Rockies last year. He was drafted in the 6th round in 2012 out of St. John's.
