Roberto Osuna entered in a non-save situation in the ninth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Rangers, but was rewarded with his first win of the season.

It's hard to remember that Osuna is only 21 years old and never pitched above High-A before making the jump to the majors. He's emerged as one of the best relievers in the league. It's not supposed to be that easy. The righty worked an easy ninth inning in a tie game on Wednesday, and Russell Martin's walk-off single ensured that Osuna would pick up his first win of the year and only the second major-league run of his career. He now has a 2.08 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP in 13 innings.

Edwin Encarnacion launched a two-run homer in the sixth inning of Wednesday's win over the Rangers, finishing the day 2-for-4 with two RBI.

Encarnacion hasn't quite hit his stride in 2016, but he's still driving in runs and the power is showing signs of coming around. The 33-year-old got a mid-80s fastball up in the zone from Colby Lewis and promptly deposited it in the second deck of the left-field stands. He's hitting .245/.306/.400 with four homers and 18 RBI.
May 4 - 10:14 PM

Rougned Odor led off the game with a double and went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Odor has now collected a hit in seven of his last eight games and is hitting .382 over that same stretch. He's been a top-five fantasy second baseman and is starting to show some power. Two homers and four doubles have come in these past eight games. The 22-year-old now has a .283/.321/.472 slash line with four homers and four stolen bases in 112 plate appearances.
May 4 - 10:09 PM

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.
May 4 - 10:04 PM

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.
May 4 - 9:59 PM

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.

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.
