Tyler Flowers had his fourth three-hit game of the season Thursday in the loss to the Tigers.

Yeah, that Tyler Flowers. Only Juan Uribe with five has more three-hit games this season (six others also have four). Going into this season, Flowers had played in 192 major league games and had three hits exactly twice. Flowers has still struck out 24 times in 64 at-bats, so we're not big believers in his newfound ability to hit for average.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that Dustin McGowan will make his next scheduled start.

McGowan gave up six runs in four-plus innings Wednesday against the Orioles and now holds a 6.88 ERA through four starts. The oft-injured 31-year-old has admitted that he's dealing with a bit of fatigue, so he might not be long for the rotation if he continues to struggle. On a related note, Gibbons has considered the possibility of using a sixth starter to give the rotation some extra rest.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Thursday that Gio Gonzalez (shoulder) is dealing with normal soreness.

Gonzalez was removed in the sixth inning Wednesday with shoulder tightness, but the Nationals aren't alarmed yet. The real test will be to see how he responds to a bullpen session Saturday.
Apr 24 - 4:34 PM

Bartolo Colon pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out eight to defeat the Cardinals on Thursday.

Colon drew the reeling Cardinals at a good time, and he turned in his high-strikeout game as a Met. He has a 26/3 K/BB ratio in 32 innings for the season, but since he has given up six homers, his ERA stands at 4.50.
Apr 24 - 4:32 PM

Doug Fister (lat) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start Sunday with High-A Potomac.

Fister, out since spring training with a lat strain, threw a bullpen session Thursday with no issues. He's expected to toss four innings in his first rehab outing and will likely need at least one more start before joining Washington's rotation. If all goes well, he should be activated around May 7.
Apr 24 - 4:30 PM

With Kyle Farnsworth getting the day off, Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched a perfect ninth for his first major league save on Thursday.

Matsuzaka had no problem maintaining the Mets' three-run lead in the ninth. It was his second ever save, the first coming back in Japan in 2000. He's allowed one run and two hits in 5 1/3 innings since his callup last week.

Ivan Nova will undergo Tommy John surgery next Tuesday.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews. It was considered inevitable after Nova was diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, but he wanted to get a second opinion before going ahead with the procedure. He'll now be sidelined until the early part of 2015. Vidal Nuno will take his place in the starting rotation for now.
Apr 24 - 4:29 PM

Lance Lynn took his first ever loss in April after allowing three runs -- two earned -- in 6 1/3 innings Thursday against the Mets.

The Cardinals' offensive malaise finally got to Lynn, who had been 4-0 with a 3.42 ERA this season and 12-0 lifetime in 13 April starts. Lynn struck out nine, so it was hardly a bad day for him. However, he was responsible for the unearned run, as he committed a throwing error to start the sixth. Oddly enough, he also took advantage of a Bartolo Colon error to reach base in the fifth.
