Red Sox's Michael Kopech: Throws in extended spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kopech (hand) appeared in an extended spring training game for the first time Monday, throwing two scoreless innings and striking out three, the Boston Globe reports. The right-hander's fastball topped out at 99 mph.

Kopech, who broke his right hand punching a teammate in spring training, in time will be assigned to a minor league team, mostly likely Low-A Greenville. The Red Sox are high on Kopech, but this is his second off-field incident. Last season, Kopech was suspended 50 games when testing positive for a banned amphetamine.

Phillies' Ryan Howard: Manager clarifies role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Pete Mackanin said Monday that Howard has not been benched, but he will lose some playing time to Tommy Joseph moving forward, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.

Mackanin felt the need to clarify Howard's role after his comments over the weekend about playing Tommy Joseph more were misconstrued by some reporters. Howard was in the lineup Monday and went 1-for-4 with an RBI and two strikeouts. He is no longer in a straight platoon with Joseph at first base. The two will share time at the position with Joseph still getting all of the starts against lefties.

Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Key buckets in deciding run Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Livingston scored five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 FT) along with six rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot in 14 minutes in Monday night's win over the Thunder in Game 7.

That's a modest statistical line, but Livingston had two key buckets, igniting a 12-0 run late in the third quarter to put Golden State in charge of the game. Until that point, the bench had combined for just seven points in two-and-a-half quarters, when Livingston hit a one-handed floater, followed by an aggressive, unmolested dash for a dunk-and-one. Most times, the reserves merely need to maintain the status quo, but during Game 7, they provided the bounce that helped send Golden State to the NBA Finals for a second straight year. Game 1 against the Cavaliers is Thursday night.

Phillies' Hector Neris: Allows three runs Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neris was tagged with a loss after allowing three runs on two hits in two-thirds of an inning Monday against the Nationals. He walked three and struck out one.

Neris, who had not given up a run since May 6, struggled with his command Monday. He threw a total of 29 pitches and 16 of those pitches were balls. He is 1-2 with a 2.20 ERA and a 38:10 K:BB in 28.2 innings this season.

Blue Jays' Drew Storen: Picks up save in win over Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen recorded the final two outs, including a strikeout, to notch his third save Monday against the Yankees.

There wasn't a save situation in this one until Aaron Loup gave up a two-run home run to Brian McCann, which left Storen to clean up the mess and close the door. He made it interesting -- he immediately gave up a Mark Teixeira double and brought the tying run to the plate -- but he got the next two hitters to close the door, including a strikeout of Chase Headley. Storen still has a brutal 6.75 ERA, but that outing has to help his confidence.
