Jedd Gyorko went 2-for-2 with two walks against the Cubs on Thursday.

Gyorko was making his first start since coming off the disabled list, so he's now started three of the six games in which he's been on the active roster. This seems like a good time to remember that Gyorko was the Cardinals' second-best player last year behind only Tommy Pham. He's 5-for-8 with three walks and no strikeouts this season. The Cardinals want to play Jose Martinez regularly, for good reason, but Gyorko still deserves to be their starting third baseman.

Alex Gordon (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Gordon was placed on the DL with a labral tear in his left hip earlier this month but is already on the mend. Barring a setback, Gordon should be back in the Royals' lineup sometime next week. He was hitting just .174 before his injury.

Shohei Ohtani (blister) will serve as the Angels' DH Thursday against the Red Sox.

Ohtani's start was cut short due to a blister on Tuesday night, though manager Mike Scioscia doesn't think the blister will affect his hitting. He'll bat sixth against Boston lefty Eduardo Rodriguez. The rookie sensation has hit a robust .367 this year with three homers and 11 RBI.

Kole Calhoun is not in the Angels' lineup Thursday against the Red Sox.

Calhoun will get the night off against Red Sox left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez. Chris Young will spell him in right field and bat eighth. Calhoun hasn't gotten going yet this year, batting .205 with 19 strikeouts through his first 73 at-bats. Only two of his 15 hits this year have gone for extra bases.

Jeimer Canderlario went 4-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and a walk as the Tigers topped the Orioles 13-8 on Thursday.

13 runs for the Tigers, yet a combined two RBI from Miguel Cabrera, Nicholas Castellanos, Victor Martinez and James McCann. Candelario, Leonys Martin and Jose Iglesias combined to drive in 10 runs. That trio previously had 10 RBI in 173 at-bats this season. Candelario had already picked it up this week, going 5-for-13 with two homers and a triple in the Tigers' previous three games. He's raised his OPS from .618 to .897 during the stretch. We're not very optimistic he'll have lasting value in mixed leagues.
Apr 19 - 5:02 PM

Jordan Zimmermann picked up his first win of the season after allowing four runs in 5 1/3 innings Thursday against the Orioles.

Zimmermann gave up three homers, yet he saw his ERA shrink from 8.18 to 7.71 today. Through increased use of his slider, he has managed to fan 18 batters over 16 1/3 innings in his four starts. He remains a long way from being any use in fantasy leagues, though.

According to MLB.com's Mark Bowman, Anibal Sanchez (hamstring) may miss "just a couple weeks."

Sanchez was carted off and fitted for an air cast after straining his hamstring during pregame warmups on Wednesday but is already showing significant improvement. The right-hander has compiled a stingy 1.29 ERA over three appearances this year including two starts.
Apr 19 - 4:56 PM

Alex Cobb surrendered seven runs -- five earned -- in 3 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Tigers.

Cobb was unlucky early in the outing, but the Tigers hit the ball harder as the afternoon went on. He's allowed 10 hits in both of his starts since joining the Orioles, giving up a total of 15 runs -- 12 earned -- in seven innings. It's still spring training for him, so some early struggles are no surprise, even if this is worse than anyone should have expected.
