Brett Gardner (knee) remains out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Thursday against the Mariners.

Gardner has apparently made some progress in his recovery from a sore right knee, but he'll sit out for a fifth straight game with the M's starting left-hander James Paxton. Giancarlo Stanton is in left field and Gary Sanchez is taking a turn at designated hitter.

Aaron Hicks is getting the day off Thursday against the Mariners.

Clint Frazier will start in left field and bat leadoff versus Mariners left-hander James Paxton. This looks to be a routine day of rest for Hicks, who's batting .300/.364/.617 through 66 plate appearances in June.

Esmil Rogers has been released from his contract with the Nexen Heroes of the Korea Baseball Organization.

The Nexen Heroes have in turn signed 35-year-old right-hander Eric Hacker to a one-year, $300,000 contract. KBO teams are only allowed to carry three foreign-born players, per league rules. Rogers broke his right ring finger on June 3 when he took a comebacker off his pitching hand.

Eric Hacker has signed a one-year, $300,000 contract with the Nexen Heroes of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Hacker headed to South Korea in 2013, after struggling in a short stint with the Giants, and is now gearing up for his sixth straight season in the KBO. The 35-year-old right-hander posted a 3.42 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 97/29 K/BB ratio across 160 1/3 innings (26 starts) in 2017 with the NC Dinos.

Nick Williams (nose) went 1-for-4 in his return to the Phillies' starting lineup Wednesday.

Williams suffered a broken nose on Monday night when he got struck in the face by a ball that ricocheted off the right field fence at Citizens Bank Park, but he toughed it out to play a full nine innings on Wednesday afternoon. The 24-year-old is slashing .232/.300/.427 with eight home runs in 65 games this year.

Jung Ho Kang is day-to-day at Triple-A Indianapolis due to left wrist discomfort.

Kang was scratched from the lineup at Indianapolis on Wednesday and might need a couple more day of rest, but this doesn't sound like anything too serious. "He did not identify one particular mechanism of injury," Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk told reporters. Kang, who missed the entire 2017 season following his third DUI arrest in South Korea, got clearance to re-enter the United States in late April and has batted .340/.435/.580 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 14 games between High-A Bradenton and Triple-A Indy. With eligibility at both third base and shortstop, he's a worthwhile stash in fantasy leagues.

Wade Davis worked around a single allowed in a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's 10-8 win against the Mets, securing his 21st save.

It was a tidy outing for Davis, who threw eight of his 10 pitches for strikes. He blew his past two save opportunities so fantasy owners needed to see a dominant effort. It wasn't a perfect appearance, but he was pounding the strike zone and this is what you want to see. While he has managed just seven saves over his past 10 opportunities since May 11, he should still be viewed as one of the better closer options in the game.
Jun 21 - 1:40 AM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

Parra has logged three consecutive multi-hit games while driving in seven of his season's 31 RBI. He has also scored a goal in four straight games, and six of the past seven outings. The red-hot month of June continues for the outfielder, as he is hitting .386 (22-for-57) with four doubles and 14 RBI in 16 games to raise his average from .275 to .304 since flipping the calendar from May to June.
