Rays placed RHP Ryan Webb on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a right pectoral strain.

The 30-year-old right-hander isn't expected to be out long, and could return after a minimum stint on the disabled list. In 17 outings before hitting the shelf, he posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Dustin Ackley was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays with a shoulder injury.

Ackley suffered the injury while sliding. He's heading for an MRI and could be looking at a possible stint on the disabled list. Expect an update from the Yankees on his status after learning the MRI results.
May 29 - 4:19 PM

Yunel Escobar was removed from Sunday's game against the Astros with an apparent wrist injury.

Escobar sustained the injury diving for a ground ball. The Angels have been decimated by injuries throughout the season, and it would be another big blow if they lose their leadoff hitter for any significant amount of time. Expect an update on his status shortly.
May 29 - 4:16 PM

Starlin Castro went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Castro's two-run homer off Jake Odorizzi in the seventh inning proved to be the only hit the Yankees managed on the afternoon. It would be enough to boost the team to a 2-1 win. For the season, Castro is slashing .253/.287/.425 with nine doubles, seven homers and 21 RBI over 186 at-bats. He is already halfway home to tying his career-high for homers.
May 29 - 4:10 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Longoria came through with an RBI single against Nathan Eovaldi in the third inning. It would provide the Rays' only run of the game. The veteran third baseman is hitting .254/.301/.461 with nine homers and 25 RBI across 193 at-bats.
May 29 - 4:05 PM

Jake Odorizzi surrendered a two-run home run to Starlin Castro in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees, the only hit he allowed over seven innings.

Tough loss for Odorizzi, who was almost perfect on the afternoon. Almost. Entering the seventh inning, the 26-year-old right-hander had not allowed a baserunner. He walked Brett Gardner with one out in the frame, though, and Castro promptly followed that up with a two-run home run. Through his first 11 starts (61 2/3 innings), Odorizzi owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 51/17 K/BB ratio. A home start against the Twins shows next on his schedule.
May 29 - 3:58 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was sharp in Sunday's win over the Rays, firing six innings of one-run ball.

Eovaldi scattered six hits, walked two and struck out seven on the afternoon. The only run to score against him came when Evan Longoria notched an RBI single in the third inning. The 26-year-old right-hander has allowed just two runs over his last 18 innings (three starts) and has pushed his ERA down to 3.71 in the process. He will look to continue this recent strong trend in a road start against the Orioles next time he toes the rubber.
May 29 - 3:57 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) felt sore after his last rehab start and is "backing off his planned assignments."

It's unclear how big of a setback it could be, but obviously it's not a good development. Ryu tossed four scoreless innings in his last rehab outing and had been scheduled to start on Monday. The Dodgers could have more on the left-hander's status later Sunday.
