Tony Zych (rotator cuff tendinitis) is expected to be out four-to-six weeks.

Zych was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. After a followup examination, the four-to-six-week timetable for his return was established. In his first 10 appearances (12 innings) this season, the 25-year-old right-hander held a 3.00 ERA with 19 strikeouts.

Nick Castellanos was the only Tigers' hitter with multiple hits in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Tigers, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.

It was an uninspiring night at the plate for the entire Tigers' ballclub, as Corey Kluber carved them up in a five-hit shutout. Still, Castellanos continued his hot start to the season with a couple base hits. He now boasts a .378/.385/.589 slash line in 96 plate appearances.
May 4 - 8:57 PM

Yan Gomes went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's victory over the Tigers.

It's been a tough run for Gomes. He's only 3-for-26 (.115 AVG) in his last seven games. His RBI double could've knocked in two runs on Wednesday, though, had Anibal Sanchez not allowed a run earlier in the at-bat with a wild pitch. Despite his struggles, he still offers premium power for the catching position. The batting average just has skyrocket upward for his power to be meaningful in game situations. He's hitting .197/.215/.368 on the year.
May 4 - 8:53 PM

Carlos Santana led off yet again, going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored.

Santana isn't a traditional lead-off candidate in terms of speed, but he does walk more than he strikes out and he'll swipe a bag or two when opposing pitchers aren't paying attention. Wednesday's performance was typical of what he provides when he's right -- a single and two walks, setting the table early and often for the meat of the Indians' order. He's hitting .244/.357/.463 with four homers and two steals in 98 plate appearances.
May 4 - 8:48 PM

Corey Kluber twirled a gem with Wednesday's complete-game shutout against the Tigers, striking out seven and scattering five hits.

Kluber spun his wheels out of the gate in 2016, but has been brilliant in his last three starts. He's only allowed three earned runs in his last 24 innings, striking out 23 batters and walking just two. The right-hander benefited from some nifty defense at the hands of Francisco Lindor on Wednesday, but that isn't projected to change anytime soon. In other words, that's a feature, not a bug. Kluber has won two of his last three games and has a 3.35 ERA with a 2.57 FIP in 43 innings. He'll next get the Astros on the road.
May 4 - 8:43 PM

Anibal Sanchez gave up four runs on four hits and three walks in seven innings of work in Wednesday’s loss to the Indians.

Sanchez pitched better than his scoreline otherwise suggested, which is something we haven’t often gotten to say this year. Aside from a rocky fourth inning, he held the Indians in check aside from that, continuing to cut down batters via the strikeout. He’s whiffing more than a batter per inning (9.90 K/9), despite the overall struggles. The 32-year-old has been plagued by walks and homers. He has 19 walks and 5 home runs allowed in just six starts. Sanchez now owns a 6.00 ERA and isn’t worth rostering in leagues until he can show a semblance of command over a stretch of games. The strikeouts alone won't cut it.

Bo Schultz (hip) is being moved up to Double-A New Hampshire as he continues his rehab work.

Schultz underwent labrum surgery on his hip over the offseason. The procedure has sidelined him through the first month of the season. He began a rehab assignment with Advanced-A Dunedin near the end of April and his bump to Double-A rehab work is a nice sign for his progression. Last season, the 30-year-old right-hander pitched to a 3.56 ERA and 31/14 K/BB ratio across 43 innings.
May 4 - 7:38 PM

Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox due to flu-like symptoms.

With Ramirez being scratched late, Travis Shaw shifts over to first from third. Josh Rutledge is the other domino, here, taking Shaw's place at third base. Shaw is hitting sixth and Rutledge is hitting seventh. Consider Ramirez day-to-day moving forward. The Red Sox do not have an off day on Thursday and could give the slugger another day off if he is still feeling queasy in 24 hours.
