Henderson Alvarez has three shutouts. Three shutouts was enough to be the full-season leader in that category in five of the past 11 seasons.

Six shutouts on Sunday afternoon. So don’t worry if you think you wasted your day because 20% of all major league teams didn’t get much done yesterday either.

Mark Trumbo was initially expected to miss six weeks with a fractured foot suffered on April 21 and said two weeks ago that he was “extremely pleased” with how the rehab process was progressing, but it turns out he’s not particularly close to returning after all.

A gem from Josh Collmenter, an ugly dud from the Braves and a horrible, horrible bit of stream of consciousness from me about what would happen if the season ended today.

Gerardo Parra was very, very impressed.

Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

Hector Santiago was supposed to be a big part of the Angels’ rotation when they acquired him from the White Sox in a three-team trade this offseason, but instead he pitched his way into a move to the bullpen two weeks ago and now they’ve demoted him to Triple-A.

On HBT Daily yesterday I said Johnny Cueto would give up more than two runs in a game before Masahiro Tanaka got his first loss. Both happened yesterday, but I’m pretty sure the Nats got their third run off Cueto before the Yankees-Cubs game ended, so I’m gonna claim victory.

Two homers for Alex Gordon, a triple play for the Rockies and another shellacking of a hapless opponent by the Oakland Athletics.

Mark Trumbo is four weeks into what was expected to be a six-week recovery from a stress fracture in his left foot and the Diamondbacks left fielder told Zach Buchanan of the Arizona Republic that it’s shown “significant healing” and “I’m extremely pleased with it.”

There is no word for “lose” in Masahiro Tanaka’s vocabulary. It’s not even a translation thing. There is no “lose” in his Japanese or his English. He’s just a giant bag of win and dominance and stuff.

1-0 leads heading into the ninth were not safe last night.
May 13, 2014, 3:30 PM EST
The worst fears are realized.

Derek Norris smacked two homers and Gio Gonzalez flashed some Natitude

Miami: kings of the walkoff win.

Baseball has been played for 150 years, but a first in Major League history occurred last night.
