Carlos Santana went 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts versus the Tigers on Thursday.

Santana isn't hitting, but this is the first day strikeouts have been the problem; he had eight in 14 games coming in. The Indians might try dropping him in the lineup until he gets going, though that's not really Terry Francona's style. He'll surely starting hitting eventually.

Blue Jays recalled OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.

Gose will serve as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins. He's starting in center field in the nightcap while Colby Rasmus will DH and Jose Bautista plays right field.
Apr 17 - 4:49 PM

Mike Napoli (finger) is back in the starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide, but he managed to avoid a more serious injury. He'll bat cleanup Thursday against Chris Sale.
Apr 17 - 4:44 PM

Jose Abreu will get the day off Thursday against the Red Sox.

Abreu is currently in a 1-for-20 stretch, so it's not a bad time to give him a breather. Paul Konerko will make the start at first base.
Apr 17 - 4:41 PM

Twins recalled INF Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Rochester.

Nunez, who was recently acquired from the Yankees, will function as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader and play third base in the nightcap. He'll be optioned back to Triple-A on Friday.
Apr 17 - 4:37 PM

Kyle Gibson pitched four-hit ball for eight innings and combined with Anthony Swarzak on a shutout of the Blue Jays on Thursday.

It's a depleted Blue Jays lineup, but that's still quite an outing for the 26-year-old. He's already 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA this year after going 2-4 with a 6.53 ERA in 10 starts as a rookie last season. While he should remain a decent enough AL-only starter, we don't expect him to last as an asset in mixed leagues.
Apr 17 - 4:34 PM

R.A. Dickey lasted just 4 1/3 innings and gave up five runs in a loss to the Twins on Thursday.

Dickey's slow start last year could be explained by a sore back that robbed his knuckler of some velocity. This year, he has no such excuse; he just hasn't been able to locate. He's been effective in just one of his four starts, when he walked one batter in 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees. In his other three starts, he's walked 14 in 16 1/3 innings. Mixed leaguers might want to try another option next week.
Apr 17 - 4:31 PM

Joe Mauer contributed two hits and scored two runs Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Mauer has been striking out more than usual -- 17 times in 14 games -- but he has his average up to .293, and with nine walks mixed in, he's scored 10 runs. That's quite an improvement over his pace from last year, when, despite a .404 OBP, he scored just 62 times in 113 games.
