Nick Martinez allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Perhaps no stat line better encapsulates Nick Martinez: not very good, but not awful, either. His 4.69 ERA through seven starts tells a similar story. At least he's reliable -- in all seven of those starts, he's gone at least five innings but no more than seven. Martinez will carry a 1-3 record into Tuesday's start against the Rays.

Tigers recalled C/1B John Hicks from Triple-A Toledo.

The Tigers needed a backup catcher with James McCann (hand) headed to the disabled list. Hicks and Alex Avila will share catching duties during McCann's absence.

Tigers placed C James McCann on the 10-day disabled list with a left hand laceration.

McCann needed five stitches in his left hand after getting hit by a pitch Thursday against Houston. His roster spot will be absorbed by John Hicks. Alex Avila will see most of the action behind the plate during McCann's absence with Hicks making an appearance here and there. McCann shouldn't miss much longer than the 10 minimum 10 days.

Drew Pomeranz had it all working Thursday, striking out 11 while allowing two runs over six innings in a win over the Rangers.

It was a good sign for Sox fans when the southpaw struck out the first two batters he faced and ended up punching out five of the first seven hitters he saw. He allowed just four hits, including a solo homer to Elvis Andrus, and walked one over his six innings. Efficiency has been his enemy this season -- only three times in nine starts has he gotten through six innings, and he's yet to record an out in the seventh -- but the Sox will take Thursday's performance every time. Pomeranz will try to carry on that good momentum, and continue to work on his 4.70 ERA, against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Updating an earlier report, Corey Kluber (back) will make a rehab start for Double-A Akron on Friday.

Kluber had been scheduled to pitch Thursday for Triple-A Columbus but that game was rained out. The plan is for Kluber to throw around 70-75 pitches on Friday. If all goes well, he'll be back in Cleveland's starting rotation next week.

Robbie Ray struck out nine Brewers over seven scoreless innings as the Diamondbacks shut out the Crew 4-0 on Thursday.

Not to be overshadowed by teammate Zack Greinke, Ray reminded everyone Thursday that he's a talented member of the rotation, too. The Brewers were able to muster just two singles off Ray over his seven innings, and the southpaw didn't issue a free pass all night. It was the second consecutive start in which he's left without giving up a run, lowering his ERA to 3.45 with a 1.20 WHIP through 10 starts overall. Ray will try to keep the shutout streak going Tuesday against the Pirates.

Eric Thames went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Thursday against the Diamondbacks, dropping his season average to .294.

Plenty of guys would kill for a .294 average; that's not the shame. The problem is, he was hitting .333 on May 10. Since that time, Thames has gone 3-for-26 without an extra-base hit. The good news is he's still walking plenty to offset his propensity for striking out, but the shine has worn off a bit after he hit 11 homers in the season's first month. Like that hot stretch, this cold snap isn't his baseline, but the reality is somewhere in between.
May 25 - 11:50 PM

Chris Owings hit his sxith home run of the season in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

The homer was Owings' sixth of the year but his first in almost a month, last homering on May 3. Forty-six games into the season, he's now tied his career high for dingers. The 25-year-old dual threat also has nine steals on the year, and Owings is batting a healthy .320/.352/.491 in what sure seems to be shaping up as his breakout year.
