Chris Owings left Thursday's game against the Giants after injuring his head in an outfield collision.

Owings left in the third inning after getting kneed in the face by teammate A.J. Pollock. Not only did Owings hold on for the catch, but he somehow had the presence of mind to throw the ball in despite being in obvious pain. Owings walked off on his own power but will surely be put through the concussion protocol. He went 0-for-1 in his lone at-bat before exiting. Jarrod Dyson will finish out the game in right field for the D'Backs.

Aaron Judge set a record with his home run in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, becoming the fastest to 61 career home runs, in terms of games played, in baseball history.

Judge caught a hanging breaking ball from Jays reliever Tyler Clippard and hooked it into the left field seats in the seventh inning for the solo shot. It was his 61st homer in 199 career games, besting Mark McGwire's record of 204 that had stood since 1988. No stranger to records or success, the 25-year-old is having another stellar start to a season this year, batting .339/.481/.629 with five homers, 12 RBI and 16 runs scored through 17 games.

Luke Maile went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Maile continued his unlikely assault on American League pitching, picking up two hits for his fourth consecutive game. Maile has hit in all seven of his appearances this year, slashing a cool .480/.552/.640 in 25 at-bats. Will the 27-year-old with a career .203/.235/.315 line continue posting a 1.192 OPS? Probably not. But it's been a first few weeks to remember for the backup catcher.

Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Blue Jays Thursday, earning his third save of the season.

Chapman didn't waste much time or effort, blowing away Devon Travis, Steve Pearce and Teoscar Hernandez in just 12 pitches. He's now got 17 strikeouts in eight innings of work, posting a 0.75 WHIP and 2.25 ERA in that span. He's also a perfect 3-for-3 in save chances on the young season.
Apr 19 - 9:52 PM

Aaron Sanchez allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Sanchez lacked his best stuff -- he struck out just two while also walking two -- but did his best to keep the Jays in the contest despite it. It was his third consecutive quality start, despite dropping to 1-2 on the year. The right-hander will try to improve on that record next Wednesday, carrying a 3.86 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into a matchup with the MLB-best Red Sox.
Apr 19 - 9:45 PM

CC Sabathia allowed two unearned runs over 4 1/3 innings Thursday against the Blue Jays.

In his return from a minor hip strain, Sabathia threw 71 pitches in getting through 4 1/3 innings. He allowed four hits while walking one and striking out one. He's got a 2.70 ERA through three starts but it's hard to tell what to make of him at this point -- two of those starts have lasted less than five innings, and the other lasted only five. The Yankees will win their share of games for the 37-year-old, but the rest of his stats will likely leave something to be desired. He'll continue looking for his first win Tuesday against the Twins.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) compared his rehab to being at the start of spring training.

Pedroia underwent knee surgery in October and evidently still has a long way to go in his recovery. It's going to be a while before he begins a minor league rehab assignment. Eduardo Nunez has been filling in at second base for the BoSox, who owns the majors' best record at 15-2.
Apr 19 - 9:18 PM

Hunter Pence underwent an MRI on his injured right thumb.

The Giants are still waiting on the results but all signs point to Pence landing on the disabled list. Mac Williamson wasn't in the lineup for Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, suggesting he could be on his way to the big leagues to replace Pence.
