Michael Pineda pitched 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball in Friday's 6-1 win over the Mets, allowing just five hits and striking out seven.

The Yankees made things easy for their pitcher, as they jumped on Jacob deGrom for six runs through the first three innings. Pineda took full advantage. He struck out seven and the only run he allowed came via a Lucas Duda sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. The outing lowered Pineda's ERA to 3.92. Far more impressive is his sterling 27/2 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings. Yet again, he showed pinpoint control, throwing 78 of his 100 pitches for strikes. Needless to say, he didn't walk a batter. Gone are the sizzling fastball and cover-your-eyes slider from Pineda's Mariner days, but his control has allowed him to compensate for the slight drop-off in pure stuff. Next up, a Wednesday afternoon date with the Rays.

Roenis Elias is expected to start in place of the injured Hisashi Iwakuma for the Mariners on Sunday.

Elias is scheduled to pitch at Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, so pushing him back a day and allowing him to work against the Twins makes logical sense. Expect a formal announcement from manager Lloyd McClendon following Friday's game.

Rays optioned RHP Jose Dominguez to Triple-A Durham.

The 24-year-old didn't allow a run in his 5 2/3 innings with the big league club, posting a 5/2 K/BB ratio. He should get another opportunity in Tampa Bay relatively soon.

Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Gordon hit the RBI single off of Jordan Zimmerman in the fifth inning. He also flashed his reckless side, as he was thrown out at second on the same play. Gordon giveth and he taketh away in that fashion. Later in the game, he recorded his eighth steal of the season. In Gordon's first year with the Marlins, he is slashing a lovely .370/.382/.452. If we're going to quibble with the great start, Gordon's walked just twice in 73 at-bats, meaning that his OBP is largely dependent on his bat.

Yadier Molina was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers for precautionary reasons after taking a foul ball off his knee.

He was replaced by Tony Cruz, who would stand to see increased action should Molina be forced to miss a couple of games. He's considered day-to-day.

Blue Jays activated OF Michael Saunders from the 15-day disabled list.

Saunders had minor knee surgery during spring training, but has made a quick recovery and is ready to get his season back on track. With his blend of power and speed and playing in the friendly confines of the Rogers Centre, he could be very relevant in mixed leagues.
Apr 24 - 10:32 PM

Blue Jays designated INF Steve Tolleson for assignment.

The 31-year-old hit just .200/.250/.400 with five strikeouts in his 16 plate appearances with the Jays. With his versatility, there's a chance that Tolleson could attract interest on waivers, otherwise he'll continue to provide organizational infield depth for the Jays.
Apr 24 - 10:30 PM

Dan Uggla went 0-for-3 in Friday's loss to the Marlins.

As is his wont, Uggla also struck out twice in the contest. This brings his batting line to a cringe-inducing .118/.189/.176 over 34 at-bats. It's difficult to believe that the hitter we're seeing now had six seasons with 25 or more home runs. Those days are long, long gone. Once Anthony Rendon returns from a knee injury, Uggla's at-bats figure to drop off a cliff. That's assuming the Nationals keep him on the active roster, which at this point, is not a given.
