The Lakers interviewed Byron Scott for vacant head coaching position on Tuesday.

Should the Lakers hire Scott he would bring with him a strong rooted understanding of the history of success of the organization, something he was a part of for most of his playing career. Scott is known as a player's coach, is reportedly friends with Kobe Bryant, and maybe even more importantly, he has maintained a positive relationship with his former star guard when he was the coach of the Cavs in Kyrie Irving who is scheduled to become a restricted free agent at the end of next season. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Adam Lind went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer, a double and three RBI in Friday night’s 7-5 loss against the Diamondbacks.

Lind has broken out of a 1-for-20 slide by picking up four hits over the past two days. Recent slump aside, Lind has been a solid contributor for the most part during his first season in Milwaukee, posting an .866 OPS with 12 doubles and eight home runs across 46 games.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Carlos Gomez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Friday’s 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Gomez has been struggling over the past week, going 2-for-20 across the last five games. However, both hits have come during the past two days, with one leaving the yard. Maybe Fridays roundtripper can get the two-time All-Star going at the plate. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jimmy Nelson worked six innings in Friday’s 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs on seven hits while collecting eight strikeouts.

After issuing 11 free passes across his last 20 1/3 innings coming into Fridays start, Nelson definitely made a concerted effort to find the zone against the Diamondbacks. Though he did surrender four earned runs, Nelson punched out eight while throwing 71-of-103 pitches for strikes. The 25-year-old righty still lacks consistency from start-to-start, but has surrendered north of four earned runs in just one of his 10 starts this season. He will be back on the bump Wednesday afternoon at St. Louis.  Analysis: Nate Miller

A.J. Pollock went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer during Friday night’s 7-5 victory versus the Brewers.

Pollock continues to swing a hot bat in recent days, as he has now hit safely in 8-of-9 games. Overall during that stretch, the 27-year-old outfielder has gone 17-for-37 with two homers, three doubles, 11 runs scored and five stolen bases. Analysis: Nate Miller

Nick Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday’s 7-5 win over the Brewers.

Ahmed went into play back on May 12th carrying a dreadful .130 batting average. However, the slick-fielding shortstop has completely turned things around at the plate since then. Over the past 15 games, Ahmed has hit a cool .347 (17-of-49) with three homers, nine RBI and nine runs scored. Analysis: Nate Miller

David Peralta went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a double and two RBI in Friday’s 7-5 win against the Brewers.

Peralta has snapped out of a recent 1-for-18 skid over the past two days, as he has gone 3-for-4 with a couple of extra-base hits. In a crowded Arizona outfield situation, Peralta is really only an option in N.L.-Only format right now. Analysis: Nate Miller

Ender Inciarte went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored during Friday’s 7-5 win over the Brewers.

Inciarte is swinging a hot bat atop the Arizona lineup, going 7-for-22 with a homer, a steal and five runs scored over the past five games. The 24-year-old outfielder shows occasional pop, but has become a steady contributor for fantasy owners in average, stolen bases and runs.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Brad Ziegler recorded a save in Friday night’s 7-5 win over the Brewers, surrendering a run on one hit with no walks or strikeouts in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Ziegler has certainly been shaky over his past couple of outings, allowing three runs (two earned) across 1 2/3 innings. The veteran submariner is holding down the closers role for now, but that could change quickly.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Rubby De La Rosa tossed five innings in Friday’s 7-5 win against the Brewers, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four.

After a strong three-start stretch earlier in May, De La Rosa has now allowed eight earned runs on 10 hits and four walks across his last 11 innings. The 26-year-old hurler has high-end potential, but has yet to work himself into a consistent groove on the mound and needs to find a way to lower his home run rate. De La Rosa has a solid 8.3 K/9 and 1.14 WHIP across 64 innings this season, making him a nice N.L.-Only option at the present time. He will be back on the bump Wednesday afternoon versus the Braves. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jake Peavy(back tightness) will have next rehab start pushed back a couple of days

Peavy, who had a setback in his rehab on Wednesday, will have his next start moved backed. The move is due to him not being 100 percent physically yet and he is having trouble getting comfortable on the mound. Based on his next start the Giants should layout a plan for his return to the rotation. Pitching depth can't come soon enough as the Giants lead over the Dodgers for first in the NL West is a half game. Analysis: Matt Selz

Update: Cano is suffering from Ear Infection

The Mariners now believe the Cano, who has been out since Thursday with flu-like symptoms, has been suffering from an Ear Infection. It appears as though he will try and play on Saturday after feeling better on Friday. Cano received medication and IV treatment to keep his weight up. Analysis: Matt Selz

Josh Hamilton went 2-for-3 with a walk, a pair of solo homers and three runs scored during Friday’s 7-4 victory versus the Red Sox.

Needless to say, this was a big night for Hamilton in more ways than one. The veteran slugger belted his first MLB homer since August 24th of last year in the bottom of the second inning then followed up with another deep drive during the fourth. With five hits over his last 11 at-bats, it is time to get Hamilton in fantasy lineups. Analysis: Nate Miller

Alvin Gentry will have a second interview with the Pelicans

Gentry, currently the lead assistant for Golden State, was extended a second interview with the Pelicans brass. The Pelicans are looking to replace the fired Monty Williams with an up-tempo-style offensive coach and as lead assistant, Gentry was responsible for play calling that led the Warriors to the leagues number 1 offense and a 67-15 record in the regular season. Although he is the first candidate to be interviewed a second time, this time in New Orleans instead of San Francisco, there are other candidates in the race namely Jeff Van Gundy and the newly fired Tom Thibodeau. As usual we will just have to see where the annual coaching carrousel winds up. Analysis: Matt Selz
