Travis Hafner had a pair of RBI singles in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles.
Hafner plated runs in the first and fourth innings, but they were the only tallies the Yankees could muster in the extra innings loss. Pronk dealt with a shoulder issue last week, but he appears to be fine now, having homered twice and driven in two runs in each of his three games since returning to action.
Fernando Rodney recorded five outs to pick up his ninth save of the season on Tuesday.
It was Rodney's second save since his meltdown last Thursday, but it wasn't without incident. Rodney allowed a ground-rule double to Colby Rasmus in the ninth and he scored on a wild pitch, cutting the Rays' lead to one. But after a walk, Rodney struck out Melky Cabrera to end it. His job as Rays closer looks to be safe.
Josh Johnson (triceps) will make at least two more rehab starts.
Johnson struck out five over three innings of one-run ball on Monday with High-A Dunedin. He's feeling good physically, but the right-hander obviously needs to build up his stamina. He'll rejoin the rotation in early June if he can avoid a setback.
Bud Norris left Tuesday's start against the Royals following six scoreless innings after aggravating his back injury.
Norris was originally supposed to start Sunday after leaving his previous outing with back spasms but was pushed back just in case. Obviously, it appears that he's not over the ailment. The righty gave up just five hits and two walks over six frames before exiting Tuesday. The Astros should provide an update on his status after the game.
Max Scherzer dominated the Indians over eight innings Tuesday, allowing just one run in the Tigers' 5-1 victory.
Scherzer allowed just two hits on the evening, striking out seven. After a first-inning run, the right-hander kept the Indians under wraps. The win moved him to 6-0 on the year, and he's got a 3.61 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through nine starts. His next start will come Sunday against the Twins.
Miguel Cabrera hit his 12th home run of the season Tuesday in the Tigers' win over the Indians.
The home run raised his RBI total to a ridiculous 49, and he's now hitting .384/.455/.667 on the season. A Triple Crown is a rare feat, but Cabrera may actually be an odds-on favorite to repeat this year with how he's hitting.
Corey Kluber allowed three runs in 6 1/3 innings as the Indians lost to the Tigers on Tuesday.
Kluber was good until the sixth inning, when he allowed homers to Andy Dirks and Miguel Cabrera. Otherwise, Kluber struck out eight and was generally effective. The right-hander moved to 3-3 with the loss. His next start comes Sunday against the Red Sox.
Octavio Dotel (elbow) has resumed throwing.
Dotel was given medication and shut down for six days after Dr. James Andrews determined earlier this month that he had no structural damage in his right elbow. The righty will eventually head out on a rehab assignment, though it's unclear when that will happen. He should return sometime next month if he can avoid setbacks.
