Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) began running at the Padres' spring training complex Thursday.

It's the first time he's done so since landing on the disabled list and is obviously a big step as he works his way back from plantar fasciitis. Gyorko remains several weeks away from a return, but he's moving in the right direction.

Derek Holland (knee) said Thursday that he hasn't been told when he'll begin a rehab assignment.

It was reported Wednesday that he would begin one after the All-Star break. That may very well happen, but the left-hander doesn't know for sure yet. "I haven't heard anything, but the only thing I don't want happen is I'm out there for just two innings and 35 pitches," Holland said. "That better not happen. I have been throwing 80-pitch bullpens." The Rangers are expected to put Holland through more fielding drills over the weekend in order to test his surgically-repaired knee. If that goes well, he seems likely to be cleared to pitch in games.

Joe Mauer (oblique) is not expected to be ready to return immediately after the All-Star break.

It's no surprise, as he'll only been two weeks removed from a strained right oblique at that time. There's no timetable for Mauer's return, but typically oblique strains keep players sidelined for 3-4 weeks.

Pinch-hitter Mike Carp singled in Daniel Nava in the bottom of the 10th to give the Red Sox a second straight walkoff win over the White Sox on Thursday.

Carp's single off Ronald Belisario was his first hit since he came off the disabled list Monday. He had been hitless in 17 at-bats since May 22. The Red Sox will continue to employ him primarily as a pinch-hitter unless someone wants to trade for him and give him an expanded role.

Jon Lester fanned 12 while allowing one run in seven innings Thursday against the White Sox.

Lester left with a two-run lead, but that was blown by Koji Uehara in the ninth. It was Lester's third game with at least 12 strikeouts this season (only David Price has as many), and he has a 1.01 ERA over his last six starts.

Despite surrendering just two hits, Jose Quintana gave up three runs in seven innings Thursday against the Red Sox.

Quintana was perfect for five innings before giving up two walks and two hits in the three-run sixth. He then came back with a flawless seventh. Unfortunately, the one shaky inning was enough to cost him a chance at a win today.

Tyler Flowers is 1-for-25 in July after going hitless in four at-bats Thursday.

The White Sox will certainly be on the looking for a possible catcher of the future if they do any selling this month. Since his incredible April in which he hit .367 (that'd be like a decent hitter batting .600), he's gone 24-for-168 (.149) with 71 strikeouts.

Danny Santana (knee) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Fort Myers this weekend.

It's good news for the Twins as they head into the All-Star break. Assuming all goes well during the rehab assignment, Santana seems likely to be ready for activation at the beginning of the second half. Santana was batting .328/.366/.448 batting line with two homers, 16 RBI and six steals over 37 games before suffering a left knee bone bruise.
