Aaron Sanchez took a no-decision after seven quality innings of three-run ball against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Things got off to a shaky start, as Sanchez allowed three base hits to the first three batters he faced, but the right-hander recovered nicely to collect his fifth quality start of the season. Aside from the six-run disaster against the Athletics on April 22, Sanchez has only surrendered six earned runs in 34 innings. Overall, he has a 2.82 ERA with a strong 3.32 FIP, indicating that his strong start perhaps has some staying power. He'll look to carry over his momentum when he takes the rubber against the Giants on the road on Monday.

Colby Lewis limited the powerful Blue Jays to just three runs in seven innings, but didn't factor into the decision on Wednesday.

No one expected Lewis to escape Wednesday's contest without giving up a home run, which he did in the sixth inning, a two-run shot to Edwin Encarnacion. But the right-hander threw strikes and exploited the Jays' swing-and-miss tendencies to fan seven batters in his seven innings. He now has a 3.32 ERA in 38 innings and will get the White Sox at home next Monday.

Steven Souza exited Wednesday's game against the Dodgers with a pectoral spasm.

Souza whacked a solo home run in the fourth inning for his lone hit in two at-bats. The pectoral issue raised its ugly head several innings later and he was replaced in center field by Kevin Kiermaier in the seventh inning. Per the Rays, Souza's injury is not considered major.
May 4 - 9:37 PM

Tommy Pham (oblique) went 1-for-2 with a two-run single, a walk and a stolen base in the first game of his rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis.

Pham injured his oblique on Opening Day and has not seen game action over the last month-plus. He is closing in on a return to the majors now that he has begun his rehab stint and could be activated from the disabled list early next week. Last season, the versatile 28-year-old slashed .268/.347/.477 with seven doubles, five triples, five homers and 18 RBI across 153 at-bats.
May 4 - 9:27 PM

Tony Zych (rotator cuff tendinitis) is expected to be out four-to-six weeks.

Zych was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. After a followup examination, the four-to-six-week timetable for his return was established. In his first 10 appearances (12 innings) this season, the 25-year-old right-hander held a 3.00 ERA with 19 strikeouts.
May 4 - 8:57 PM

Nick Castellanos was the only Tigers' hitter with multiple hits in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Tigers, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.

It was an uninspiring night at the plate for the entire Tigers' ballclub, as Corey Kluber carved them up in a five-hit shutout. Still, Castellanos continued his hot start to the season with a couple base hits. He now boasts a .378/.385/.589 slash line in 96 plate appearances.
May 4 - 8:57 PM

Yan Gomes went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's victory over the Tigers.

It's been a tough run for Gomes. He's only 3-for-26 (.115 AVG) in his last seven games. His RBI double could've knocked in two runs on Wednesday, though, had Anibal Sanchez not allowed a run earlier in the at-bat with a wild pitch. Despite his struggles, he still offers premium power for the catching position. The batting average just has skyrocket upward for his power to be meaningful in game situations. He's hitting .197/.215/.368 on the year.
May 4 - 8:53 PM

Carlos Santana led off yet again, going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored.

Santana isn't a traditional lead-off candidate in terms of speed, but he does walk more than he strikes out and he'll swipe a bag or two when opposing pitchers aren't paying attention. Wednesday's performance was typical of what he provides when he's right -- a single and two walks, setting the table early and often for the meat of the Indians' order. He's hitting .244/.357/.463 with four homers and two steals in 98 plate appearances.
