Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd told Troy Renck of the Denver Post that the club hopes Jason Giambi will consider being their hitting coach.

Giambi was one of the finalists for the manager job, but the Rockies settled on Walt Weiss as their new skipper on Wednesday night. "We consider him a Rockie, we hope this is the spot he will consider," said O'Dowd. "He was very impressive in his interview for the manager's job." Giambi previously said that he would only retire to become the manager, but Renck hears that the 41-year-old is prepared to listen about the hitting coach job while seeing how things develop in the free agent market. It's unlikely he will return to the Rockies as a player.

Shelby Miller is evaluating his options after being diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow.

He's also dealing with a strained flexor tendon. We assumed the injury was serious when news spread of Miller sending his MRI results to Dr. James Andrews. Now Miller must decide whether to rehab his ailing elbow or undergo Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for at least a year. The rehab route is not unprecedented—Garrett Richards and Masahiro Tanaka have both done it—but most pitchers opt for Tommy John. The injury is a devastating blow for Miller, who had been aiming for a bounce-back season after disappointing in his first year as a Diamondback.

Gary Sanchez (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

Sanchez is progressing rapidly in his recovery from a strained biceps. He's resumed hitting in the batting cage and is already throwing up to 120 feet. Sanchez should be back in the Bronx before no time. Austin Romine has done most of the catching during his absence.

Matt Carpenter slugged a walkoff grand slam in the bottom of the 11th inning Thursday as the Cardinals roared back to beat the Blue Jays 8-4 in the first game of a doubleheader.

Carpenter hit an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth and then ended the game with his four-run blast in the 11th, finishing 2-for-5 with a walk and five RBI in the afternoon victory. Randal Grichuk sent the game to extras with a game-tying two-run blast off Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna in the ninth. Carpenter, 31, is slashing .250/.373/.417 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games this season.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi expects Didi Gregorius (shoulder) to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Gregorious is ready to roll after completing a five-game rehab assignment with High-A Tampa. It took him a little over a month to recover from a strained shoulder. With Gregorius taking over as the everyday shortstop, Ronald Torreyes will head back to the bench.

Roberto Osuna took his third blown save in four tries after giving up a two-run homer in the ninth inning Thursday against the Cardinals.

Osuna has given up runs in four of six appearances since coming off the disabled list. The homer today was the first he's allowed and he does have a 5/0 K/BB ratio in six innings, so it's hardly time to lose hope. Still, the Jays might opt to give him a break from the closer's role after this one. If so, they could go to Joe Biagini over Jason Grilli.

Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) will go for an MRI on Friday.

This MRI will be "more detailed" than the one Cespedes underwent last week. Cespedes strained his left hamstring running the bases on Thursday and manager Terry Collins said he could be out "a while." The Mets have dropped six straight and now sit in last place in the NL East. Losing their best hitter for an extended stretch probably won't help matters.

Matt Harvey, moved up in the rotation because Noah Syndergaard was scratched, gave up six runs and walked five in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in his start against the Braves.

Harvey looked strong in the first, but he lost command and velocity in the second. Maybe he was off because of the late notice that he'd be pitching in this one, but it was a really discouraging outing from a guy who had been throwing well.
Apr 27 - 4:28 PM

R.A. Dickey was removed from his start Thursday against the Mets due to a left quad spasm.

Dickey allowed three runs -- two earned -- over five innings before his departure. If it's truly just a spasm, the veteran knuckleballer should be fine for his next scheduled start.
Apr 27 - 3:44 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) is back in the Red Sox lineup on Thursday night against the Yankees.

It'll be his first start since he injured his knee and ankle last Friday on a controversial takeout slide by Manny Machado. Pedroia is starting at second base and batting leadoff versus Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.
Apr 27 - 3:12 PM

Jose Altuve (head) is sitting out again Thursday versus the Indians.

Altuve was also given the day off Wednesday following his nasty collision with Teoscar Hernandez on Tuesday night. The star second baseman has been cleared of a concussion but is experiencing some lingering shoulder soreness. Marwin Gonzalez will draw the start at second on Thursday versus the Tribe.
Apr 27 - 3:09 PM

George Springer (hamstring) remains out of the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday.

Springer hasn't started a game since Saturday, though he did sub in Tuesday after Teoscar Hernandez suffered a left knee injury in a shallow-outfield collision with Jose Altuve. Josh Reddick is in center field and batting leadoff Thursday versus the Indians.
