Brian McCann was removed from Sunday's game against the Rangers in the ninth inning with a cramp in his foot/calf.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi admitted that he was a little concerned about the injury and that the team would know more about it on Monday. Owners in weekly leagues may want to have another option available should it look like the veteran backstop may miss a few games.
Prince Fielder had another nice night at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, going 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI.
He is absolutely killing it at the plate lately, raising his slash line to .358/.412/.551 with Sunday's three-hit attack. Fielder now has 32 RBI to go along with his eight home runs.
Adam Rosales blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Yankees in New York.
It was the second straight start that Rosales has made at second base and he made the most of it, going 2-for-3 plus a walk, though he was caught stealing. Though he's hitting just .214/.279/.375 on the season, he could be interesting in AL-only formats if he's indeed seeing the bulk of playing time at second base.
Shawn Tolleson struck out all three hitters that he faced on Sunday, preserving a three-run lead against the Yankees to earn his third save of the week.
It looks as though he's running away with the closer's job in Texas as Tolleson has converted each of his first three chances with ease. The right-hander now boasts a 3.10 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 29/4 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings on the season. He needs to be scooped up in any mixed leagues where he may still be available.
Yovani Gallardo fired six innings of two-run ball in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, allowing just four hits and a walk along the way.
Gallardo punched out six on the night. All of the damage against him came in the first inning on a two-out, two-run single by Brian McCann. He was able to settle in nicely afterwards though, keeping his team in the game and allowing the Rangers offense to come from behind. Now 4-6 on the season, he'll head into Friday's start against the Red Sox with a 4.13 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 40/16 K/BB ratio through 56 2/3 innings on the year.
Brian McCann went 1-for-4 with and plated both of the Yankees runs in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
His two-run single off Yovani Gallardo in the first inning gave the Bombers the early advantage, unfortunately that would be their extent of their offense on the evening. He's had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing just .233/.289/.383 with four long balls and 25 RBI.
Chris Capuano allowed two runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Rangers on Sunday night.
The veteran southpaw racked up four strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk. He needed 84 pitches go get 13 outs, and departed with two men on and one out in the fifth. He has struggled since returning from the disabled list, posting a 7.36 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 8/2 K/BB ratio through 7 1/3 innings in his first two starts. He'll hope for better results when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Friday.
Jose Reyes (ribs) is set to be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Blue Jays lineup on Monday.
He's making his way back from a cracked rib sustained in late April. Reyes went 4-for-11 with a pair of RBI in a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo over the weekend. He'll return to a .250/.266/.300 slash line with no homers, seven RBI and three stolen bases through 16 games.
