Domingo Santana (shoulder) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

Santana has been in and out of the lineup this week due to some mild soreness around his right lat. It's unclear whether he'll be ready to start Friday, but he's day-to-day.
May 6 - 8:11 AM

Trevor Story continued his fantastic early-season roll in Thursday's 17-7 win over the Giants, homering and finishing with three RBI.

Story continued his (sorry) storybook opening to the 2016 season, swatting home run No. 11 off Giants starter Matt Cain to lead off the fifth inning. And what a fifth inning that was for the Rockies. The boys from Denver would score 13 runs in the frame, batting around and then some. Story chased his home run with an RBI single when he came up for the second time in that fifth. His numbers figure to return to earth as the season rolls along, but for the time being, the 23-year-old shortstop is making happy humans of all who happen to own him for fantasy purposes. With Thursday's nice night in the books, Story is slashing .270/.339/.658 with four doubles, three triples, 11 homers and 24 RBI over 111 at-bats.
May 6 - 2:01 AM

Denard Span went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

Span hit both of his doubles against Rockies starter Chris Rusin. He led off the contest with a two-bagger, then followed that up with one of the RBI species just an inning later. For the season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .259/.354/.357 with one homer, 15 RBI, four steals and 14 runs scored across 110 at-bats. There just hasn't been much oomph in the bat through the first month-plus of the season. Even with his two doubles on Thursday, he still has only six for the 2015 campaign.
May 6 - 1:51 AM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with a home run as the Red Sox topped the White Sox 7-3 on Thursday.

It was the third time in his last eight games that Pedroia racked up three hits. The second baseman is sixth in the American League with 20 runs scored, and his .322 batting average is ninth-best in the league. He's hitting .322/.364/.496 with four homers and 14 RBI, but he's stopped running altogether after being a double-digit stolen base threat earlier in his career.
May 6 - 1:50 AM

Chris Rusin was ineffective in Thursday's win over the Giants, surrendering seven runs on 13 hits over 4 1/3 innings.

The Rockies scored 13 runs in the top of the fifth inning to take a 17-3 lead, but despite that monstrous lead, Rusin would immediately run into trouble in the bottom of the frame and was pulled with one out. The Giants would score four runs before the longest fifth inning in the history of mankind (estimated) finally came to a close. Rusin will take a 4.33 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into his next scheduled start, a home showdown with the Diamondbacks.
May 6 - 1:44 AM

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season Thursday against the Red Sox.

Garcia took Red Sox starter Henry Owens deep for a solo blast in the fourth inning. The homer was Garcia's second in his last five games. He's 10-for-22 with the two homers, five RBI and five run scored during a six-game hitting streak that's run his overall line up to a modest .230/.301/.446.
May 6 - 1:44 AM

Matt Cain was obliterated in Thursday's 17-7 loss to the Rockies, surrendering eight runs (six earned) on 10 hits over four-plus innings.

We will give you a moment to hide the children before we go over Cain's stats. The veteran right-hander surrendered two home runs and did not strike out a batter. He didn't walk one, either. With almost everything falling in the strike zone, the Rockies teed off. They pounced for three runs in the first inning -- highlighted by a two-run homer from wunderkind Nolan Arenado -- an additional run in the second, and then, the fifth inning happened. Cain would start the inning and promptly surrender the rest of his runs in the frame. Trevor Story walloped a home run to lead off the frame, which was followed by a Carlos Gonzalez double, a Brandon Crawford error and an RBI single by Gerardo Para. Cain would be lifted for Vin Mazzaro at that point. Cain has now allowed at least six runs in three of his six starts. He is scheduled to face the Blue Jays next time out. That should be interesting.
May 6 - 1:41 AM

Hanley Ramirez hit his third home run of the season in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

Returning from a one-game absence due to flu-like symptoms, Ramirez made White Sox starter Erik Johnson feel sick with a solo dinger in the third inning. He's now hit safely in nine straight games, including homering in each of his last two. His line sits at .286/.319/.438 with 17 RBI, 15 runs scored and three stolen bases along with his three homers.
