Jackie Bradley (finger) went 1-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored Thursday against the White Sox.
Bradley hurt a finger during Wednesday's game but tested it out and was able to play Thursday, with good results. The homer, a solo shot, was his second of the season, giving him 14 RBI. He's batting .277/.337/.489 through 27 games.
Adam Eaton went 2-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored Thursday against the Red Sox.
Eaton had a couple singles to go along with a couple walks, reaching in four of his five plate appearances. The stolen base was his fourth in five tries this year, and he's got 12 runs scored. Eaton is slashing .294/.376/.376 overall.
Henry Owens handed out six walks over three innings, allowing two runs, in a no-decision against the White Sox on Thursday.
Owens yielded just two hits -- one of which was a home run -- but the inefficiency killed him. It wasn't just this start, either, as he now has 13 walks through 12 1/3 innings overall. Things could have been much worse, as he escaped with a 5.11 ERA and 2.11 WHIP through three starts. Assuming Eduardo Rodriguez won't be back by then, Owens could draw another start Tuesday against the Athletics, but he won't be long for the rotation with many more like this.
Derek Norris went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.
Norris notched a solo home run off Mets reliever Logan Verrett in the sixth inning. He also hit singles and doubles, missing out on the cycle by a triple. Through 90 at-bats, the 27-year-old backstop is hitting just .167/.211/.289 with a pair of homers and four RBI. Thursday's performance was nice enough, but he will have to begin stringing those kinds of games together if he is going to be playable for fantasy purposes.
Yoenis Cespedes launched a two-run home run in the ninth inning of Thursday's loss to the Padres.
Cespedes was just about the only Met to do much of anything offensively on Thursday. It was his two-out single in the seventh inning that broke up Colin Rea's no-hitter and it was his two-run home run off Brad Hand in the ninth inning that pulled the Mets to within 5-3 and gave them some glimmer of hope. Fernando Rodney drowned out that hope and recorded the final two outs without issue. For the season, Cespedes is hitting a marvelous .299/.358/.678 with nine homers and 27 RBI over 87 at-bats.
Robinson Cano hit a three-run double in the ninth inning to lead the Mariners to a 6-3 win over the Astros on Thursday.
With one out in a tie game, Cano cleared the bases with a two-bagger against Astros closer Luke Gregerson. It was the latest achievement in what has been a fantastic start to the month of May for the 33-year-old. With Thursday's performance, Cano is 12-for-18 (.667) with three doubles, a home run, six RBI and five runs scored in five games this month. Historically his worst month, Cano is working to change that in the span of a few days.
Colin Rea was magnificent in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Mets, surrendering just three hits and one run over eight-plus innings.
Rea struck out five and walked one, but even if he wasn't blowing away batter after batter, he pitched masterfully. The Mets did not pick up their first hit until the seventh inning, when Yoenis Cespedes finally managed a two-out single. They would not score until the ninth, when Curtis Granderson greeted Rea with a solo home run. He was lifted for a reliever at that point. For the season, Rea, 25, holds a 3.82 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 27/14 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings. The Cubs are up next in what should prove an interesting test.
Jacob deGrom tasted defeat for the first time this season as he fell to 3-1, yielding three runs on eight hits over five innings in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Padres.
Thursday's start was deGrom's shortest of the young season. He had managed to pitch into the sixth inning in his other three outings. The 27-year-old right-hander struck out two and walked one in what was a relatively subdued performance. While deGrom has yet to surpass six strikeouts in any one game this season, his 1.99 ERA shows no outward damage. His 1.24 WHIP looks decent enough as well, though that's a bit off his career mark of 1.04. DeGrom will look to return to his winning ways in a road start against the Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.
