Mark Canha (hip) underwent successful surgery to repair a left hip impingement and labral tear.

Canha's surgery was performed by Dr. Marc Philippon. The 27-year-old first baseman was hitting .122/.140/.341 in 16 games prior to hitting the disabled list in early May. He will miss the remainder of the 2016 campaign while he rehabs from Wednesday's procedure.
May 25 - 6:40 PM

Mark Teixeira (neck) underwent an MRI on Wednesday.

The Yankees are still waiting on the results of the MRI. Neck spasms have bothered Teixeira on-and-off throughout the month of May. A stint on the disabled list is in play if the testing results are not to the team's liking. Teixeira is hitting just .195/.294/.282 over 149 at-bats this season.
May 25 - 6:36 PM

Nomar Mazara went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three total RBI in Wednesday's win over the Angels.

Mazara socked a solo home run off Angels starter Hector Santiago in the second inning that traveled an estimated 491 feet. That makes it the longest home run hit by any major leaguer in 2016. He would add a two-run single in the sixth to secure his other two RBI on the afternoon. For the season, the 21-year-old outfielder is slashing .320/.365/.500 with eight home runs and 21 RBI over 150 at-bats. He has six multi-hit games in his last 10. Mazara, long considered an intriguing all-around talent, has become an immediate star at the major league level.

Brandon Belt left the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Padres after sustaining an ankle injury.

Belt appeared to roll his left ankle while sliding into second base in the eighth inning. He proceeded to be attended to by trainers before walking off the field without a visible limp. The team should provide an official update on his status after the conclusion of the game.
May 25 - 6:26 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Puig was pulled from Tuesday's game after he turned a would-be extra-base hit into a single by admiring the deep shot to right field. Following the game, manager Dave Roberts said, "It's something that when we talk about playing the game the right way, we have to be accountable." Trayce Thompson takes Puig's place in right field on Wednesday and is hitting fifth. Even setting Tuesday's lack of hustle aside, Puig is slashing just .247/.289/.382 as Memorial Day weekend approaches.
May 25 - 6:19 PM

Jed Lowrie is in the lineup and batting fifth for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

Lowrie was just activated off the disabled list on Wednesday. He missed 15 days on the nose with a bruised right shin. Back in action now, the veteran infielder returns to a .302/.341/.345 triple-slash. He accumulated those numbers through 32 games.
May 25 - 6:08 PM

Colby Lewis earned the win despite pitching terribly in Wednesday's game against the Angels, allowing six runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.

Lewis might have improved to 4-0, but it wasn't pretty. He struck out one and walked one on the afternoon, with the Angels striking for a run in the first, three in the second and solitary runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Despite these scuffles, the veteran right-hander still holds a respectable 3.38 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 45/13 K/BB ratio across 64 innings. He will play host to the Astros in his next scheduled start.
May 25 - 6:04 PM

Hector Santiago was not long for Wednesday's slugfest loss to the Rangers, surrendering six runs (five earned) over 2 1/3 innings.

Ian Desmond brought home the first Rangers run with a ground out in the first inning, but that was just a throat-clearing compared to what would follow. In the second, Santiago surrendered three more runs, with an additional two scoring in the third before manager Mike Scioscia pulled the plug. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.58 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 43/21 K/BB ratio (55 innings) into a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
