Yu Darvish showed no signs of fatigue in his impressive performance over the Astros on Friday, allowing just two runs on seven hits in his eight innings of work.

Darvish matched his season-high of 11 strikeouts while walking two in the game. He allowed an RBI single to Jed Lowrie in the third inning and a solo homer to Justin Maxwell in the seventh, shutting the Astros down the remainder of the evening. Perhaps seeing the strong results from this outing, the Rangers will utilize off days in the future to allow Darvish to pitch on the five days' rest that he'd grown accustomed to in Japan. He'll take an 8-4 record and 3.57 ERA with him into spacious PetCo Park where he'll battle the Padres on Wednesday.

Corey Kluber (back) will return to the Indians' rotation Thursday against the Athletics.

Kluber dominated in Friday's rehab outing for Double-A Akron (5 IP, 1 H, 0 R) and that was all manager Terry Francona needed to see. The former Cy Young winner missed most of May while dealing with lower back discomfort. His return will probably bump Mike Clevinger from the starting rotation.

Updating an earlier report, Adam Jones is out with a left ankle injury and a sore hip.

Jones was given the day off Saturday against the Astros and will be reevaluated on Sunday. The hip issue is nothing new as Jones missed a game with a similar injury earlier this month. His absence spells more bad news for an Orioles team in the midst of a six-game losing streak.

Updating an earlier report, Ben Zobrist is out with a sore wrist.

Rookie Ian Happ is spelling him at second base Saturday against the Dodgers but Zobrist should be available off the bench. Consider him day-to-day.

Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

The slumping Carpenter has hit just .151 over his last eight games (5-for-33). Jedd Gyorko will fill in at first base and bat fifth Saturday against Rockies hurler Kyle Freeland.

Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Saturday.

It was his first time throwing off a mound since landing on the DL earlier this month. Iwakuma didn't seem too happy with his results on Saturday, claiming it "wasn't the best bullpen." When asked how his shoulder felt, Iwakuma said, "I feel OK. I would like to move forward. Hopefully it will get better." Obviously Iwakuma is in the very early stages of his recovery and still has a long way to go. There's no timetable for his return.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Justin Turner (hamstring) will need a minor league rehab assignment before he's activated from the disabled list.

That's likely to happen sometime next week. If all goes well, Turner could be back with the Dodgers by the end of their seven-game road trip which begins on Monday. Turner was hitting a league-leading .379 before landing on the DL with a strained hamstring.

Jose Bautista smashed a three-run homer off Yu Darvish to lead his club to a 3-1 victory over the Rangers on Saturday.

Coming to the plate with two out in the fifth inning with runners on first and third, Bautista smoked a hanging breaking ball from Darvish well over the wall in left field. It was all the offense the Blue Jays would need to win the game. Bautista was ice cold for the entire month of April, but has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball lately. For the season he has a .236 batting average with nine home runs and 26 RBI.
May 27 - 4:58 PM

C.C. Sabathia picked up his fifth victory of the season on Saturday, striking out nine over 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball against the Athletics.

The veteran southpaw allowed six hits and three walks on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came late, with an RBI double from Ryon Healy in the sixth and a solo blast by Josh Phegley in the seventh. Now 5-2 on the season, Sabathia will carry a 4.42 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
May 27 - 4:26 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Saturday that James Paxton (forearm) will return from the disabled list to start against the Rockies on Wednesday.

That had been the target date all along and Paxton was able to avoid any setbacks in his recovery. The left-hander has been sidelined for nearly a month due to a strained forearm. Before landing on the shelf, he registered a 1.43 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings across six starts.

Daniel Murphy is once again out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Saturday.

Acting manager Chris Speier indicated nothing was wrong physically on Friday, but it's a troubling sign that he's sitting out a second straight game. Wilmer Difo is starting in his place again and batting eighth for the Nationals on Saturday.
May 27 - 12:17 PM

J.D. Martinez is not in the Tigers' starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

He'll surely be back in there for the nightcap. JaCoby Jones is starting in his place in right field and batting eighth against Tyler Danish on Saturday afternoon.
