Tommy Medica left Thursday's game against the Dodgers with right groin tightness.
It's not clear how long he might be sidelined, but the Padres should provide more on Medica's status after the game. Rene Rivera replaced Medica at first base Thursday.
T.J. House struggled, allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings but escaped with a no-decision as the Indians came from behind to defeat the Yankees 9-3 on Thursday.
House served up two runs in the fourth, allowing a two-run home run to Zelous Wheeler. With two outs in the fifth, the Yankees strung together a hit batsman and two singles to score another run. Vinnie Pestano was able to get the final out of the inning to end the threat, however. House has a 4.40 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP, and a 30/11 K/BB ratio heading into the All-Star break.
David Phelps was squeezed out of a win due to the Yankees' bullpen after holding the Indians to just two runs over six innings on Thursday.
Phelps has now put together three solid outings in a row but he has nary a win to show for it. On Thursday, he yielded seven hits, walked three, and struck out five. Once he left the game, Matt Thornton and Jim Miller combined to allow seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Phelps heads into the All-Star break with a 3.94 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 76/36 K/BB ratio.
Chone Figgins (hip) fielded grounders and took batting practice from both sides of the plate on Thursday.
The Dodgers haven't mapped out Figgins' rehab assignment yet, but it's expected to come soon. Manager Don Mattingly also revealed that Figgins is dealing with a left hip flexor strain rather than the quad strain that was originally reported.
Zelous Wheeler singled and hit a two-run home run in four at-bats in Thursday's loss to the Indians.
Wheeler homered for the second time in his brief big league career, taking T.J. House out to left field in the fourth inning to spot the Yankees a 2-0 lead. In 19 plate appearances, Wheeler has only the two home runs along with two singles.
Josh Beckett (hip) played catch from 90 feet Thursday.
It came just three days after he had a cortisone injection in his left hip. "Josh feels pretty good," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Played catch up to 90 feet, felt good. We're hopeful that this time will allow the injections and all of that to take hold, and we'll be able to strengthen areas that he needs to and just kind of feel better in general." The Dodgers are hoping the right-hander will only miss one start.
Carlos Santana ripped a two-run home run, his only hit in five at-bats, as the Indians defeated the Yankees on Thursday.
Santana has turned his season around after a tremendously slow first two months of the season. The home run, which topped off a five-run eighth inning, is Santana's 14th and the two RBI give him 36 along with a .208/.349/.391 slash line.
Jason Kipnis singled three times, walked, and stole two bases in five plate appearances as the Indians enjoyed a come-from-behind victory over the Yankees on Thursday.
Kipnis now has back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games and six in nine July games. He has also stolen five bases in his last three games. The power still hasn't shown up for him yet the way it did last season, however, as he has a mediocre .262/.335/.361 slash line with three home runs, 23 RBI, and 13 stolen bases.
