-

Rangers: OF Josh Hamil­ton will bat in his first ex­tended spring train­ing game Mon­day af­ter tak­ing live bat­ting prac­tice for the first time Satur­day. The An­gels traded Hamil­ton to the Rangers af­ter two sea­sons filled with in­juries, poor re­sults and a sub­stance-abuse re­lapse. He is on track to be ac­ti­vated in late May.

Mar­lins: Broth­ers were in the lineup for the first time in team his­tory, even hook­ing up for a run in the fifth in­ning of a 6-2 loss to the Phillies. Dono­van Solano sin­gled up the mid­dle and scored from first on Jhonatan Solano’s dou­ble to the wall in left. The Solanos are Colom­bian na­tives.

Car­di­nals: Setup man Jor­dan Walden went on the dis­abled list be­cause of an in­flamed right biceps. ... Sun­day’s victory over the Pi­rates gave the Car­di­nals three ex­tra-in­ning wins in a row for the first time since July 2006.

Mets: RHP Dil­lon Gee was chased in the sixth in­ning of a 1-0 loss to the Na­tion­als. But Gee has lasted at least five innings in 51 straight starts, break­ing the club record held by Dwight Gooden (1987-89). It is the long­est ac­tive streak in the ma­jors.

Roy­als: OF Lorenzo Cain dropped his ap­peal of a twogame sus­pen­sion for his role in a brawl with the White Sox. RHPs Edin­son Volquez and Yor­dano Ven­tura al­ready served their sus­pen­sions. RHP Kelvin Her­rera is ap­peal­ing his two-game ban. ... All-Star closer Greg Hol­land (strained pec­toral) is ex­pected to come off the DL on Tues­day.
