James Paxton struck out 10 while allowing two runs over six innings, settling for a no-decision Thursday against the Indians.

Paxton gave up five hits, including a two-run homer to Yonder Alonso, and walked three in the outing. It was a big improvement over an inefficient and ineffective outing his last time out, but he remains 1-1 with an unsightly 5.12 ERA and 1.42 WHIP dragged down by a couple bad starts sprinkled in. Paxton will look to continue improving on those numbers Wednesday against the Athletics.

Brock Holt left Thursday's game against the Blue Jays in the third inning after pulling up lame on the basepaths.

He doubled in his first at-bat of the game and appeared to pull a hamstring between first and second base. Holt has been on fire at the plate lately but was set to return to the bench when Xander Bogaerts comes off the disabled list on Friday. Perhaps the two players will swap places now. The Red Sox will likely give an update on Holt's status later this evening.

Mark Trumbo (quad) is progressing well in his rehab and could return to the Orioles on Tuesday against the Angels.

Trumbo suffered a severe quadriceps strain back in mid-March and has missed the entire regular season thus far. He has been serving a rehab stint at Double-A Bowie in recent days and is expected to spend the weekend with the Triple-A Norfolk squad. If all goes well he will be activated Tuesday for his season debut. He hit 47 home runs in 2016 but halved that with 23 bombs last year.

Jonathan Schoop (oblique) could begin playing rehab games in the middle of next week.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said "If everything continues to progress... he'd probably play in a game in extended spring camp on Wednesday." Schoop feels he is ready to return to game action now but the team wants to hold him back to prevent a set-back. He has been on the disabled list since April 14th and is likely at least 10 days away from a return to the majors. Schoop had a .293 batting average with 32 homers and 105 RBI last year but was off to a slow start in 14 games this season before getting hurt.

RHP Wilmer Font will join the Athletics on Friday in Houston after being acquired from the Dodgers on Wednesday.

The team optioned pitchers Kendall Graveman and Chris Bassitt to Triple-A Nashville in corresponding moves. They still have one roster slot to fill, which will probably go to Yusmeiro Petit returning from bereavement leave. Font compiled a frightening 11.32 ERA in 10 1/3 spread over six relief appearances with the Dodgers before they designated him for assignment earlier this week. The Athletics acquired him in exchange for LHP Logan Salow.

Athletics optioned Chris Bassitt to Triple-A Nashville.

Bassitt was in the majors for less than a week and did not see any action during that time. He will return to his 0.69 ERA in 13 innings for Nashville. He underwent Tommy John surgery that cost him most of the 2016 season and all of 2017. There's a good chance he will get more major league time this summer.

Athletics optioned RHP Kendall Graveman to Triple-A Nashville.

He goes from Opening Day starter to minor leaguer in less than one month's time. Graveman gets the boot after registering an unsightly 8.89 ERA in six starts thus far this season. His 23 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings is a fairly good rate but he has been torched for seven home runs already. He will try to regain his form in the minors.
Apr 26 - 6:44 PM

Tommy Pham went 4-for-6 with a double and two runs scored as the Cardinals edged the Mets 4-3 in 13 innings Thursday.

Dexter Fowler delivered the game-winner in the 13th. Pham now has a four-hit game to go along with his three three-hit performances, and he's batting a robust .368. He's scored 21 runs while starting just 20 games thus far.
