Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Ehire Adrianza aggravated his right hamstring strain and could be placed on the disabled list.
Adrianza recently missed nearly three weeks with the very same injury and was forced to leave Thursday's game. It's a tough break, as he has hit safely in 11 out of his last 12 games. If Adrianza ends up on the DL, it will be interesting to see if the Giants consider bringing up Dan Uggla.
Brandon McCarthy pitched six innings and allowed just one run Thursday in a win over the Rangers.
Combining his last two starts with the Diamondbacks and his first three with the Yankees, McCarthy is 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA since June 27. He has benefited from an easy schedule during that span, though. It'll continue Monday, when he faces the Rangers again, but things will get more difficult after that.
Jerome Williams will be called up from Triple-A Round Rock to start Friday against the Blue Jays.
Williams, who signed a minor league deal with the Rangers two weeks ago, posted an ugly 6.04 ERA and 38/16 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings with the Astros earlier this season. He's not a fantasy option.
Rougned Odor had two of the Rangers' five hits Thursday in the loss to the Yankees.
One was a double. Odor is 9-for-23 (.391) with a 3/2 K/BB ratio since the All-Star break. In 169 at-bats in the first half, he struck out 31 times and walked just six times.
Scooter Gennett (quad) is out of the Brewers' lineup again Thursday.
Gennett left Tuesday's game due to right quad tightness and will now miss his second straight start. He might have to sit for another couple of days. Rickie Weeks is starting at second base again Thursday and will bat fifth against Dillon Gee.
Curtis Granderson is back in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.
Granderson missed the previous two games due to illness, but he's ready to give it a go. He'll bat leadoff against Matt Garza.
White Sox recalled RHP Andre Rienzo from Triple-A Charlotte.
Rienzo owns an ugly 5.87 ERA and 1.61 WHIP over 24 appearances with the White Sox this season. He figures to pitch in long relief.
White Sox placed RHP Zach Putnam on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
This comes on the heels of Putnam allowing one unearned run on two hits and two walks over one inning of work Wednesday against the Royals. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but Jacob Petricka is now the clear favorite for save chances in Chicago.
