Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Rangers.

He'll take a seat in favor of Garrett Jones against opposing right-hander Yovani Gallardo. The veteran outfielder is hiting a disappointing .236/.268/.400 with three long balls and 18 RBI on the year.

Manny Machado went 1-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Machado scored in the sixth and eighth innings. They would be the only runs that the Orioles scored in the 5-4 loss. He also smacked a double, his 11th of the year. Machado is now hitting .286/.347/.474 with six homers, 19 RBI and 25 runs scored. He's starting to come through on some of his potential and upside.

Jordan Lyles could miss his next start due to a sprained big toe on his left foot.

He is scheduled to work on Friday against the Phillies in Philadelphia, but he'll have to improve significantly from where he is now and throw a successful side session during the week before he's cleared to make that start. More should be known on his status later in the week, but he probably isn't worth the gamble in weekly leagues.

Aaron Sanchez spun 6 2/3 solid innings Sunday, holding the Mariners to two runs in an 8-2 victory.

Kyle Seager put the M's on the board with a solo homer in the second inning, but a sacrifice fly was the only way they were able to dent the scoreboard the rest of the way. Sanchez permitted seven hits, walked two and struck out four. The young righty holds a decent 3.98 ERA for the season, but it's come along with a 1.52 WHIP and ugly 34/34 K/BB ratio over 52 frames. He gets the Twins on the road next weekend.

Rays pitching prospect Blake Snell had his scoreless streak snapped at 49 innings Saturday for Double-A Montgomery.

He allowed his first run of the season in the first inning but held Tennessee scoreless over his next five frames. Snell finished the outing with a career-high 12 strikeouts. Montgomery didn't score until the eighth inning, leaving Snell with a no-decision. Opponents have hit .124 against the left-hander this season.

Sonny Gray got the win with five scoreless inning but exited the Athletics' 7-2 victory against the Rays with an injury on Sunday.

Gray was hit on the right ankle with a comebacker. Thankfully, X-rays were negative. He scattered four hits with no walks and four strikeouts on the afternoon, lowering his ERA to 1.77 with a 1.00 WHIP and a 61/18 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Gray will likely be able to make his next start at home against the Yankees.

Tom Koehler held the Orioles in check on Sunday, surrendering just one run on three hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Koehler's currently starting for Jarred Cosart (vertigo) and has pitched admirably in his extended spot duty. The only run he allowed against the Orioles came on a Jimmy Paredes sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. He also struck out three and walked four in the contest. Obviously, the walk number isn't good, but the 28-year-old right-hander managed to work his way around the free passes. He's scheduled to take a 3.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 38/21 K/BB ratio (in 55 innings) on the road against the Rockies next time out.
May 24 - 4:13 PM

Matt Harrison (back) is scheduled to make another start in extended spring training on Thursday.

He threw four scoreless innings in an extended spring game on Saturday and will work five frames his next time out. If all goes well, he could then be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Harrison is looking to return to the Rangers rotation in mid-June.
