Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Red Sox.

It's just a routine day of rest for the 39-year-old. Aaron Hicks will draw the start in his place and bat seventh against opposing left-hander David Price.
May 1 - 5:27 PM

Making his first starts in the majors, Tim Adleman allowed just two runs on three hits over six innings in earning a Sunday no-decision against the Pirates.

Adleman walked just two and showed no signs of the wobbly control that occasionally plagues rookie starters. He kept the Pirates off the board until the fifth inning, at which point Gregory Polanco finally made the 28-year-old right-hander feel the burn with a solo home run. Those in deeper NL-only leagues can feel free to take a speculative flier on Adleman, as he will fill in for the injured Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) in the rotation until the latter has healed up. Just be aware that he is not considered a true fantasy prospect.

Zach Britton will undergo an MRI exam on his injured ankle on Monday.

X-rays came back negative on Sunday, but the O's want to make sure there isn't any structural damage. As long as the results come back as expected, Britton could avoid a trip to the disabled list and only miss a couple of days. Darren O'Day is the most likely candidate to see save chances in his absence.
May 1 - 5:18 PM

Brett Lawrie hit a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, the third consecutive game in which he has gone deep.

Lawrie smacked a solo home run off the soon-to-be-demolished Ubaldo Jimenez in the fourth inning. The tater was his fourth of the season. Three of the four dingers came in this weekend's series against the Orioles. In addition to that quartet of blasts, he has driven in 10 runs, scored 15 and hit to a triple-slash of .290/.377/.505. The 26-year-old second baseman has a chance to surpass the career-best 16 homers he launched in 2015.
May 1 - 5:08 PM

J.J. Hardy is scheduled to undergo a CT scan on his injured foot on Monday.

Hardy left Sunday's game after fouling a ball off of his left foot. O's skipper Buck Showalter indicated that the X-ray showed things, but wasn't specific about the severity of the injury. The club should have an update on his status after Monday's exam, but a trip to the disabled list wouldn't be surprising.
May 1 - 5:05 PM

Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Machado was the only Oriole with more than one hit. As a team, they did not record an extra-base knock. The 23-year-old slugger is slashing a stupendous .350/.404/.660 with seven homers, 16 RBI and (already) 10 doubles. Almost half of his 35 hits have gone for extra bases.
May 1 - 5:02 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez failed to provide much of a spark in Sunday's loss to the White Sox, coughing up six runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.

The White Sox carved up Jimenez for four of the five runs on his line in the fifth inning. It was a disastrous frame in which the veteran right-hander allowed a total of five hits, plunked two batters, uncorked a wild pitch and -- just for good measure -- issued a walk. Thanks to all of that noise, Jimenez's ERA ballooned from 3.91 to 5.20 by the time he exited stage left. He will try to move that ghastly number back into respectability in a home start against the A's next time he toes the rubber.
May 1 - 4:57 PM

Chris Sale lacked his usual pinpoint control in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, walking four while allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings.

Sale limited the damage on the scoreboard, but the four walks were wildly out of character for him. In his previous five starts combined (38 innings), he had handed out just five free passes. On the non-walk side of the equation, the ace southpaw scattered five hits while striking out six. Even a shaky Chris Sale start is not without its rewards. For the season, he holds a 1.66 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 38/9 K/BB ratio. After surrendering six runs over his first two starts, he has yielded just three (two earned) over his last four outings. A home showdown with the Twins shows next on his schedule.
