Matt Davidson clubbed a pair of home runs on Thursday as the White Sox dispatched of the Royals 6-3.

Davidson accounted for two of his team's five total home runs off of Jake Junis in the ballgame. His solo shot in the fourth inning increased their early lead to 3-0, then he added on a two-run blast in the sixth to cap off the White Sox' scoring. While he has shown impressive power with seven homers and 15 RBI on the season, Davidson is still hitting just .225.

Wilson Ramos went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to help the Rays best the Orioles 9-5 on Thursday.

Ramos took Orioles starter Dylan Bundy deep in the second inning, his second homer in 18 games this year. He also tacked on an RBI single in the third inning for good measure. The backstop started slow out of the gate but has picked things up in recent weeks, going 14-for-39 (.359) since April 9 to raise his overall line to .262/.314/.415.

Kyle Hendricks was dominant in Thursday's victory over the Brewers, scattering four hits over seven shutout innings.

The right-hander punched out five on the night and didn't walk a batter. He needed to be every bit as good too, as Chase Anderson gave up just one run on the other side of the diamond. With the victory, Hendricks improves to 2-1 with a 3.10 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio through 29 innings on the season. He'll try to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Rockies on Tuesday.

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run that gave the Red Sox a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

With two on in the fifth inning, Jays starter Marco Estrada tried to elevate a fastball to Martinez, who was strong enough to muscle it over the right field wall for a three-run shot. It ended up being the difference in the game. Martinez now has five homers on the year, and his 18 RBI are good for seventh-best in the American League through Thursday's games. The 30-year-old is hitting .306/.351/.565 in the early days of his Red Sox tenure.

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with the go-ahead RBI double in the eighth inning to lead the Mariners past the Indians 5-4 on Thursday.

With the game knotted at 4-4, Seager hit a high fly ball to left-center that missed being a two-run homer by a few feet. He settled for the RBI double that gave the M's a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Through 24 games, Seager is hitting .247/.297/.419 with three homers, 13 RBI and eight runs scored.

Fernando Rodney took a blown save and a loss after giving up a three-run homer to the Yankees' Gary Sanchez on Thursday.

The ninth started with a Miguel Sano error, which was immediately followed by a single and the walkoff blast. It makes three straight blown saves for Rodney. Of course, it probably hasn't helped that he's made a total of three appearances in two weeks. His ERA jumped from 4.05 to 6.75 today, but he was at 11.00 at this time last year and everything turned out fine. So, it's just a matter of whether the Twins want to remain as patient as the Diamondbacks did last year. Since they're 8-12 and they had much higher expectations, we wouldn't be surprised if they make the switch to Addison Reed. Still, they're probably better off just keeping Reed in a setup role and letting Rodney work his way out of it.

Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports that Jung Ho Kang has been granted a work visa to re-enter the United States and "will rejoin the Pirates in the coming days."

Kang's immigration lawyer posted a photo in a now-deleted tweet of Kang arriving at an airport Thursday afternoon in New York City. Biertempfel notes that it's unclear what kind of shape Kang is in and now long it will take him to actually return to the Pirates' active roster. The South Korean third baseman was not allowed into the United States last year after being arrested for his third DUI in Seoul in December 2016. This is a rather surprising turn of events.

Kris Bryant (head) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Thursday versus the Brewers.

Bryant has been sidelined since taking a pitch off his helmet on Sunday. He was scheduled to meet with team physician Dr. Stephen Adams on Thursday afternoon in Chicago, presumably for another round of concussion tests. Tommy La Stella will start at third base and bat fifth Thursday night against Rockies right-hander Chase Anderson.

Jose Abreu (flu) is out of the White Sox starting lineup on Thursday against the Royals.

Abreu left Wednesday's game after three innings due to flu-like symptoms. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Davidson is at first base and Daniel Palka is serving as Chicago's designated hitter in Thursday night's series opener at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium.

Joe Kelly will begin serving his six-game suspension on Thursday night.

Kelly was handed the suspension back on April 12 after intentionally hitting Tyler Austin with a pitch and inciting a benches-clearing brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees. Kelly filed an appeal, which is how he's remained active the past two weeks, but that appeal was officially denied by MLB on Thursday afternoon.

Indians placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Miller suffered the injury during an appearance Wednesday night against the Cubs. He figures to miss around two weeks. The dominant left-handed setup man leaves behind a 0.00 ERA and 17/4 K/BB ratio in 10 innings.
