CC Sabathia pitched brilliantly in the Yankees' 7-2 ALDS Game 1 win over the Orioles on Sunday, allowing just two runs on seven hits over eight-plus innings.

Sabathia was highly-efficient, throwing 80 of his 120 pitches for strikes. His only mistake came on a third-inning hanging slider to Nate McClouth, who singled to provide both of Baltimore's runs. Sabathia could be used again if Andy Pettitte, Hiroki Kuroda and Phil Hughes fail to dismiss the O's before Game 5.

Jeremy Hellickson exited his start Tuesday night against the Padres with an apparent hand injury.

It looked to be a blister. Hellickson had worked 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball versus the Padres, with five strikeouts and just one walk. The 31-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 2.13 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 31/6 K/BB ratio in 38 total innings (seven starts) this season for Washington.

Wilson Ramos left Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a left hand contusion.

Ramos was struck on the glove hand by a ball in the top of the third inning. It's unclear if X-rays were taken, but the Rays are listing him as day-to-day -- which is promising. The 30-year-old catcher has been on fire lately and could be big-time trade bait for Tampa Bay this summer.

Jake Faria has been diagnosed with a left oblique strain.

Faria suffered the injury in the third inning of his start Tuesday night against the Red Sox, soon after allowing a three-run homer to Mookie Betts. This injury usually requires 3-4 weeks of rest and rehab for pitchers, so the 24-year-old right-hander is almost certainly headed for the disabled list. He holds a 5.48 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 37/22 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings (10 starts) this season with Tampa Bay.

Greg Bird (ankle) could return Saturday or Sunday, per Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

Bird has batted just .192 over 35 plate appearances on his minor league rehab assignment, but he does have two home runs and nine walks for an .823 OPS. The 25-year-old is worth stashing right now in fantasy leagues that allow for daily lineup changes. He'll carry big-time power potential with the Yankees, even if he platoons at first base.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said he doesn't expect Dee Gordon (toe) to be out much longer than 10 days.

Gordon was placed on the disabled list Tuesday afternoon after being diagnosed with a fracture in his right big toe, but it's a minor fracture and so this won't be too long of an absence. That's great news, as the 30-year-old speedster has batted .304 with 16 stolen bases and 25 runs scored in 45 games this season for Seattle. He recently moved back to second base (from center field) following the announcement of Robinson Cano's 80-game drug suspension.

Jose Bautista is starting in left field and batting fifth for the Mets on Tuesday night against the Marlins.

Bautista caught a flight to New York this afternoon and officially signed his one-year major league contract with the Mets upon his arrival at Citi Field. The 37-year-old hit two home runs in 12 games with the Braves before they released him on Sunday, but he also had a poor .143/.250/.343 overall batting line. This version of Joey Bats is not worth consideration in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
May 22 - 6:53 PM

Dodgers recalled RHP Brock Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Stewart is starting for the Dodgers on Tuesday night against the Rockies and could get a few more turns with Rich Hill nursing another blister. Stewart has posted a 2.08 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 21 2/3 innings (five starts) this season at Triple-A and a 3.18 ERA in 5 2/3 innings of relief at the MLB level. The 26-year-old right-hander has some fantasy streaming appeal.
May 22 - 6:31 PM

Nelson Cruz (elbow) remains out of the Mariners' starting lineup Tuesday against the Athletics.

Cruz took a pitch off his elbow on Saturday and hasn't played since, but the Mariners are optimistic the veteran slugger can avoid the disabled list. Daniel Vogelbach is starting at designated hitter and batting sixth Tuesday night against A's right-hander Trevor Cahill.
May 22 - 5:59 PM

Ryan Braun (back) went through a full pregame workout on Monday and will do the same Tuesday.

If everything continues to go smoothly, Braun could be activated from the 10-day disabled list when first eligible on Thursday. He's been out since May 14 with a middle-back injury. The veteran outfielder was batting .222/.268/.413 with five home runs and four stolen bases through 37 games this season.
May 22 - 5:45 PM

Jeimer Candelario (wrist) is set to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Toledo.

He's expected to play 2-3 games on the farm before rejoining the Tigers this weekend. Candelario landed on the disabled list May 14 due to tendinitis in his left wrist. The 24-year-old third baseman was batting .272/.359/.497 with five home runs and 16 RBI through 37 games this season with Detroit.
May 22 - 5:37 PM

Elvis Andrus (elbow) has been cleared to swing a bat.

Andrus is currently on the 60-day disabled list with an olecranon fracture in his right elbow -- an injury he suffered back in mid-April. If all goes smoothly with his rehab activities, he could return to the Rangers' active roster around the middle of June. The 29-year-old shortstop was batting .327/.426/.500 through his first 61 plate appearances this season. Jurickson Profar has been filling in at short for Texas.
