Ryan Hanigan (illness, neck) is not in the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Rockies.
He left Wednesday's game with an illness and is also battling a neck injury. Christian Vazquez will draw another start behind the plate. Blake Swihart, who is starting in left field, will fill in if Vazquez leaves early.
Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
He's taking over for Chris Capuano, who was placed on the disabled list with elbow soreness. Goforth spent a couple weeks in the majors earlier this year, logging a 7.20 ERA over four outings. He's pitched to a 3.93 ERA in 13 appearances for Colorado Springs.
Brewers placed LHP Chris Capuano on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow soreness.
Capuano must have hurt himself in Wednesday's outing against Atlanta. A starter for most of his career, the veteran has spent most of his last two seasons working in middle relief. Capuano has already undergone two Tommy John surgeries so his elbow issues are well-documented. David Goforth will take his place on the active roster.
Matt Wieters will start at catcher Thursday against the Astros.
That's only significant because it's his third consecutive start behind the plate. Wieters hasn't started three games in a row at catcher since April of 2014. That means Wieters is almost certain to get the night off Friday against Cleveland. Caleb Joseph would start in his place.
Orioles released RHP Eric Fornataro.
He signed a minor league deal with Baltimore in April but only stuck for about six weeks. Fornataro posted an ugly 8.10 ERA in 10 appearances for Double-A Bowie before getting axed. The 28-year-old made eight appearances for the Cardinals in 2014 but hasn't been to the majors since.
Jung Ho Kang went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI as the Pirates topped the Diamondbacks 8-3 on Thursday.
It's Kang's first three-hit game since he came off the disabled list three weeks ago. He's been dealing with a little hand injury, which is why today's start was just his second in five days. He's hitting .298 with five homers and 15 RBI in 47 at-bats.
Jackie Bradley Jr. will hit leadoff for the Red Sox Thursday against the Rockies.
Don't get too excited. Manager John Farrell said he plans to move Bradley down in the order when Mookie Betts returns to the lineup on Friday. JBJ hasn't hit leadoff since his rookie year in 2013. The current AL batting average leader has spent most of the year hitting ninth, which speaks volumes about the Red Sox's lineup.
Despite allowing just an unearned run over five innings and hitting a three-run homer, Gerrit Cole didn't factor into the decision in Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks.
That's because A.J. Schugel gave up two runs in the sixth, tying the game at 3-3. Cole could have pitched that inning himself if he hadn't been so inefficient on the mound; he walked three and threw 105 pitches to get his 15 outs. He did have a great day at the plate, though. Not only did he collect his second big-league homer, but he doubled in his other at-bat.
