Cubs place Justin Ruggiano on 15-day DL; recall Rosscup, Ramirez

The Cubs placed outfielder Justin Ruggiano on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain.

Ruggiano said he felt the hamstring pull two or three steps before he began to slide near the right-field bullpen mounds. He said the mound was not an issue. Ruggiano said he hopes to be back in three to four weeks. The Cubs also optioned...

Rapid Reaction: Phillies 7, Dodgers 3

LOS ANGELES – One of the least-heralded aspects of the Dodgers' turnaround in 2013 was the two-man tandem of Brian Wilson and Kenley Jansen shutting down the last two innings for opposing teams in those final months. Now, the Dodgers are having to scramble to keep from burning their closer out before the calendar turns to May, and they’re wondering how much they’re going to get from their $10 million setup man. Jansen, who leads the major leagues in appearances, got the night off and Wilson had another meltdown to cost the Dodgers a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday night.

Granderson shows signs of a breakthrough

NEW YORK -- Curtis Granderson says everything feels the same. It didn't sound like it, though. After two hits in two days, it sure sounded like there was some relief in Granderson's voice after the New York Mets' 4-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. "Anytime you can get the ball to touch the [outfield] grass, and touch base safely, it's amazing what that does for a hitter," Granderson said. Granderson snapped a career-high 22 at-bat hitless streak with a first-inning single Wednesday, and added a pinch-hit RBI single in the seventh inning Thursday.

Rapid Reaction: Diamondbacks 5, Cubs 2

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs lost 5-2 to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon, ending up with a split of the four-game series. How it happened: Edwin Jackson looked shaky before settling down. Miguel Montero's first inning double brought home Gerardo Parra, who singled to lead off the game. The Diamondbacks scored two more in the second on a walk, double and single, but Jackson retired 17 of the next 18 hitters to keep the Cubs in the game.

Rapid Reaction: Mets 4, Cardinals 1

NEW YORK -- In four games this week against the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Mets scored nine runs. And won three of the games. For the Mets to come anywhere close to their announced (but perhaps unrealistic) goal of 90 wins, they'll need to score more runs. But the pitching is on an impressive run. Bartolo Colon had another strong start in Thursday's 4-1 Mets win, his fourth in five starts for the Mets (the other one was a nine-run clunker in Anaheim).
