Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Jose Tabata will be available off the bench Thursday.

Tabata left Wednesday's game with what was called a mild concussion at the time, but the club has since determined he doesn't have a concussion at all. "He does not have a concussion," Hurdle said. "He went through a battery of tests today starting with the doctor. They do the concussion test, the computer test, he passed that. He ran on the field, went in the cage, reflexes, all the different activities that we could run him through, and he's going to be available off the bench."

Michael Cuddyer left Thursday's game against the Padres with a left hamstring cramp.

He came up gimpy after grounding out to shortstop in the seventh inning. It's good that the Rockies are only calling it a cramp, and they're listing Cuddyer as day-to-day for now. Still, he figures to miss at least a game or two.

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Thursday that removing Tanner Scheppers from the rotation is "nothing that's crossed my mind."

"We know it's a work in progress," Washington added. Scheppers was battered for six runs over just 2 1/3 frames Thursday against the Mariners and now has a 9.82 ERA over his first four starts. He's pitched beyond the fifth inning on just one occasion. Still, the Rangers don't really have any great alternatives with Matt Harrison (back) not quite ready. Scheppers will be on the chopping block in a couple weeks when Harrison returns.

Buster Posey could sit out Friday's game after taking a foul tip off the shoulder in Thursday's game.

Posey stayed in to finish the game, but he's feeling a little sore. It's a good excuse to give him a little breather Friday and give Hector Sanchez a start.

Hyun-Jin Ryu spun seven scoreless innings in Thursday's 2-1 victory over the Giants.

Ryu only struck out three, but he allowed just four hits -- all singles -- while walking one. The left-hander was rocked for eight runs -- six earned -- in his lone home start this season but has been untouchable (quite literally) on the road, tossing 26 scoreless frames. He'll have two home starts next week against the Phillies and Rockies.
Apr 17 - 8:06 PM

Kenley Jansen allowed a run but still converted his fifth save of the season in Thursday's win over the Giants.

In fairness, Jansen probably wouldn't have given up a run had Michael Morse not reached to lead off the inning following a strikeout. Still, it certainly wasn't a clean outing, as Jansen walked one, yielded an RBI single and needed 30 pitches to complete the inning. He's nailed down five saves already but has blown a pair and holds a 5.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP.
Apr 17 - 7:59 PM

Madison Bumgarner lasted just 4 1/3 innings Thursday, yielding two runs on six hits and three walks in a loss to the Dodgers.

The left-hander struck out six and was able to limit the damage for the most part, but he needed a whopping 99 pitches to record 13 outs. Bumgarner hasn't been too great the last two times out but still boasts a 3.48 ERA and 26/8 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 innings. He'll try to get back on track next week in Colorado.
Apr 17 - 7:53 PM

Matt Kemp went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Kemp has three home runs over his first 10 games, but he's done very little otherwise, batting just .171/.310/.486 overall. He'll be in center field most days, but with four starting-worthy outfielders, the Dodgers can afford to rest him when his bat is cold.
