Mike Napoli (finger) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide. He's expected to avoid the disabled list but may need a few more days off. Daniel Nava is starting at first base Wednesday in Chicago.
Apr 16 - 4:10 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Pedroia will lead off and play second base in the second game of a three-game set at U.S. Cellular Field. He was diagnosed Monday with inflammation in his left wrist and given a cortisone shot to help him through the discomfort.

Masahiro Tanaka shut out the Cubs for eight innings as the Yankees grabbed a 3-0 win in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Tanaka was scheduled to pitch on Tuesday but the game was called because of rain. He looked well-rested on Wednesday afternoon, yielding just two hits and one walk over his eight shutout frames while racking up 10 strikeouts. It was Tanaka's most dominant start so far in the major leagues, and he'll carry an outstanding 2-0 record, 2.05 ERA, and 0.77 WHIP into his next scheduled outing against the Rays.
Apr 16 - 4:04 PM

Miguel Gonzalez picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, tossing five scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Rays.

Gonzalez whiffed six batters while allowing just three hits and three walks. He did need 98 pitches to get through five, which is one he was removed relatively early. Still, Gonzalez has now been solid for two outings in a row after being blasted in his first start of the season. He'll try to keep the momentum going next week in Toronto.
Apr 16 - 4:02 PM

Shawn Kelley collected his fourth save of the season in the Yankees' win over the Cubs in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Kelley gave up a two-out single to Anthony Rizzo in the top of the ninth inning and then Rizzo advanced to second base on fielder's indifference, but Kelley rallied back to strike out Nate Schierholtz and end the threat. Kelley remains a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues until David Robertson returns from the disabled list.
Apr 16 - 4:01 PM

Carlos Beltran hit his fourth home run as the Yankees beat the Cubs in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Beltran hit his solo shot in the bottom of the first inning and then drew a walk in the bottom of the third. He's batting .313 with a 1.025 OPS so far in pinstripes.
Apr 16 - 3:58 PM

Tommy Hunter notched his fourth save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Hunter allowed a leadoff single to Desmond Jennings to start the ninth but bounce back with a groundout, a flyout and then a strikeout to end it. The Orioles closer blew a save the last time out but has pitched well overall this year, holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 5/0 K/BB ratio.
Apr 16 - 3:57 PM

Jason Hammel surrendered three earned runs over seven innings as the Cubs dropped the first half of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium

Hammel served up a solo home run to Carlos Beltran in the bottom of the first inning and then single runs in the fourth and fifth. He'll carry a 2-1 record, 3.05 ERA, and 0.73 WHIP into his next outing versus Arizona.
