Blue Jays signed INF Maicer Izturis to a three-year, $9 million contract with a $3 million club option for 2016.

The length of the agreement is nice for the switch-hitting infielder but the money is far from outrageous for the Blue Jays. In other words, it seems like a pretty well-crafted agreement for both sides. Izturis is capable of playing solid defense at three different positions and provides a nice element of speed. He's likely to see regular action at second base with Toronto in 2013.

John Lackey fired seven scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Lackey was nothing short of excellent, allowing just five hits (all of them singles) and one walk while striking out nine batters. The veteran right-hander has allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts and now has a 2.83 ERA on the year. Not bad for a guy who is making the major league minimum salary. He'll try to keep it going against the Brewers at home next week.

Mark Buehrle registered the 31st complete game of his career in Friday's victory over the Twins.

It certainly didn't appear as if it was going to be a lengthy outing for Buehrle, who surrendered four runs to the Twins in the first inning. He settled in masterfully afterwards though, allowing just one hit the remainder of the night. He racked up three strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk, needing just 111 pitches to navigate through nine innings. He'll look to carry over this strong effort when he takes on the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.

Josh Hamilton hit his first two home runs of the season in Friday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox.

Hamilton launched a solo homer in the bottom of the second inning before hitting another solo blast in the fourth. It was his ninth career multi-homer game. The 34-year-old is coming off shoulder surgery and remains an injury risk, but his return to Texas puts him in a great position to be valuable in mixed fantasy leagues again.

Chris Davis belted his 12th home run of the season as the Orioles topped the Rays 2-1 on Friday.

His solo shot off Kevin Jepsen tied the game at 1-1 in the seventh inning and provided the O's the opportunity to come back and win later on. He finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a walk, raising his season slash to .228/.312/.506 to go along with 12 homers and 30 RBI.
May 29 - 10:30 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Friday against the Nationals.

Frazier now has 15 home runs on the season, which puts him three behind Washington's Bryce Harper for the National League lead. He's already more than halfway to the 29 home runs he hit all of last season. Frazier has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, giving him a .266/.357/.584 batting line on the year.
May 29 - 10:25 PM

Troy Tulowitzki clobbered a pair of solo home runs off Cole Hamels on Friday, powering the Rockies to a 4-1 victory over the Phillies.

Tulo got the Rockies on the board with his solo blast in the first inning and repeated the feat in the third inning. He also collected a pair of singles, finishing the night 4-for-4 with two runs scored and a pair of RBI. The oft-injured shortstop is now hitting .285/.303/.456 with four long balls and 20 RBI on the season.
May 29 - 9:53 PM

Chad Bettis was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Phillies, allowing just two hits over eight scoreless innings.

The right-hander punched out eight in the impressive outing and didn't issue a walk. He has been nothing short of spectacular in his last two outings, allowing just two runs over 15 1/3 innings and posting a 15/2 K/BB ratio. While he obviously won't continue at this pace and pitches his home games at Coors Field, he could be worth a look as a streaming option in NL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

Mariners placed LHP James Paxton on the 15-day disabled list with a strained tendon in his finger.

The young southpaw was removed from his start on Thursday with the issue. It's unclear at the moment how long he'll be sidelined, but the Mariners should have an update on his status soon. Domonic Leone has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.
May 29 - 8:12 PM

Stephen Strasburg was removed from Friday's outing against the Reds with an apparent shoulder injury.

He faced just five batters before departing with the team trainer. The right-hander obviously hasn't been right all season, and a trip to the disabled list looks increasingly likely.
May 29 - 8:03 PM

Travis d'Arnaud's (finger) return from the disabled list will be delayed due to a bone bruise in his wrist.

It's not clear at this point how he suffered the injury or how long it will set him back. D'Arnaud had been slated for activation from the disabled list next week. He's been on the shelf since April 20 with a fractured right pinkie finger.
May 29 - 5:36 PM

Erick Aybar (hamstring) is not in the Angels' lineup Friday.

Aybar tweaked his left hamstring during Thursday's contest. He's not expected to require a stint on the disabled list, but he could need a few days off. Taylor Featherston is at shortstop in his place.
