Clayton Richard (illness) will likely be activated from the disabled list on Monday.
"He came out of his bullpen fine," Padres manager Bud Black said. "It looks as if Clayton is tracking toward Monday." Richard has been out since May 5 with an intestinal virus. He made two minor league starts and threw a bullpen session Friday at Chase Field, and he seems to be back in good health. The left-hander had a rough start to the season, as he sits at 0-4 with an 8.54 ERA through six starts.
Adrian Gonzalez had three hits, including his fifth homer, and the Dodgers beat the Cardinals 5-3 on Saturday.
Gonzalez actually fell just a triple short of the cycle, driving in a run with each of his three hits. The first baseman was actually on base five times in total, as he was walked twice on the night as well. The rest of the Dodgers' sluggers may be slumping, but Gonzalez looks just fine these days. He's hitting .316/.375/.471 after Saturday's game.
Josh Donaldson finished 4-for-4 with a homer and two RBI as the A's beat the Astros 11-5 on Saturday.
The magic continues for Donaldson, who boasts an outrageous .322/.398/.544 batting line in 49 games this season. He's on pace for 23 home runs and 97 RBI, which would make him a top tier third baseman (or very close to it) in standard mixed fantasy leagues. Some regression should be expected, but the 27-year-old is obviously a viable starting option in most formats right now.
