AROUND THE HORN
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.
