Jose Fernandez named National League Pitcher of the Month for April.
The 21-year old 2013 Rookie of the year has continued his success into his second season in the big leagues as he finished the month of April with a 4-1 record and an ERA of 1.59. He was in line to pick up his fifth win of the season in his first start in the month of May before A.J. Ramos blew the save this past Sunday. The young Cuban now leads all starters with 65 strikeouts in just 46.2 innings after Sunday's no-decision. rnANALYST: Michael Pichan
Padres recall INF Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A El Paso.
Gyorko will fill in at second for the injured Corey Spangenberg as he heads to the DL. Gyorko was sent down a couple of weeks ago after a very rough start to the season for the Padres. During his stint in Triple-A he appears to have gotten somethings worked out as he's hit .279 with four homers, 9 RBIs, and 8 R in just 16 games. In 46 games with the big club this season he's hitting .210 with two home runs, 11 RBI, and 9 runs scored. Analysis: Matt Selz
GM Brian Cashman says the Yankees are not considering removing CC Sabathia from the rotation.
A 3-8 record on the year and a troubling 5.65 ERA is what is bringing up the questions about Sabathia's stay in the rotation. The Yankees briefly went to a six man rotation with Nova coming back from the DL, but have decided to move Adam Warren out to the pen, where he was dominating last season, and keep Sabathia in the rotation. Sabathia's last start was solid but no run support did not help his cause. It will be interesting to see what New York does going forward and whether they seek a starter at the trade deadline.
