Michael Brantley had a two-run homer and a two-run single Thursday versus the Tigers.

Brantley isn't any sort of prototypical middle-of-the-order guy, but manager Terry Francona has used him exclusively in the fifth and sixth spots so far and he's been good for 14 RBI in 15 games, even though they guys ahead of him aren't really clicking yet. He should remain a nice mixed-league outfielder all season long.

Lonnie Chisenhall singled all four times he was up Thursday against the Tigers.

Unfortunately, he did so from the ninth spot in the lineup, so he never scored or drove in a run. Still, Chisenhall is now 12-for-23 this season. Hopefully, he's about to turn into a fixture against right-handed pitching.

Carlos Santana went 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts versus the Tigers on Thursday.

Santana isn't hitting, but this is the first day strikeouts have been the problem; he had eight in 14 games coming in. The Indians might try dropping him in the lineup until he gets going, though that's not really Terry Francona's style. He'll surely starting hitting eventually.
Apr 17 - 4:54 PM

Blue Jays recalled OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.

Gose will serve as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins. He's starting in center field in the nightcap while Colby Rasmus will DH and Jose Bautista plays right field.
Apr 17 - 4:49 PM

Mike Napoli (finger) is back in the starting lineup Thursday 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, but he managed to avoid a more serious injury. He'll bat cleanup Thursday against Chris Sale.
Apr 17 - 4:44 PM

Jose Abreu will get the day off Thursday against the Red Sox.

Abreu is currently in a 1-for-20 stretch, so it's not a bad time to give him a breather. Paul Konerko will make the start at first base.
Apr 17 - 4:41 PM

Twins recalled INF Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Rochester.

Nunez, who was recently acquired from the Yankees, will function as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader and play third base in the nightcap. He'll be optioned back to Triple-A on Friday.
Apr 17 - 4:37 PM

Kyle Gibson pitched four-hit ball for eight innings and combined with Anthony Swarzak on a shutout of the Blue Jays on Thursday.

It's a depleted Blue Jays lineup, but that's still quite an outing for the 26-year-old. He's already 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA this year after going 2-4 with a 6.53 ERA in 10 starts as a rookie last season. While he should remain a decent enough AL-only starter, we don't expect him to last as an asset in mixed leagues.
