Andy Pettitte stopped the bleeding for the Yankees on Thursday, pitching eight innings of one-run ball in a 4-2 win over the Red Sox.

The Yankees wanted a long outing from Pettitte after Hiroki Kuroda's second-inning departure last night, and he gave them even more than hoped. Pettitte scattered eight hits, walked one and struck out three on the night. Thanks to three double-play balls, he needed just 94 pitches to get through eight.

Daniel Murphy finished 4-for-5 with three RBI in the Nationals' 13-2 rout of the Royals on Wednesday.

Murphy hit a two-run double -- his 10th double of the year -- in the Nationals' six-run first inning, singled and scored in the Nats' four-run third inning, slugged a solo shot in the fourth inning, and then singled again for good measure in the sixth. Murphy has ridden his remarkable 2015 postseason into a fantastic opening month of 2016, now with a .398/.449/.663 batting line, four homers, 17 RBI, and 17 runs scored in 26 games.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that early June would be the "best-case scenario" for Scott Van Slyke's return to action from a back injury.

Van Slyke has been doing exercises to strengthen his core, but he has yet to resume baseball activity. He hit the disabled list in early April with lower back tightness. The 29-year-old outfielder is a strong option against southpaw pitching when he is healthy. Once he has been cleared for baseball activities, we should have a more concrete idea of his recovery timetable.

Bryce Harper slugged his 10th home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals.

Harper opened the game's scoring in the top of the first inning with an RBI single to center field, kicking off a six-run frame for the visiting Nats. The 2015 National League MVP then went deep off Dillon Gee for a solo shot in the top of the fifth inning. He's sporting a 1.021 OPS on the season, even after wading through a mini slump last week.

Joe Smith earned his second save of the season Wednesday in the Angels' 7-3 defeat of the Brewers.

Smith worked both the eighth and ninth Wednesday afternoon in Milwaukee, yielding just one hit and striking out two. He carries huge fantasy potential while Huston Street (oblique) is out, and Street could be out a while.

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

Garcia is dealing with a tweaked hamstring suffered on Friday against the Orioles. After several days of rest, he had been hoping for a return to the lineup on Wednesday. The White Sox play the Red Sox again on Thursday and Garcia could conceivably crack the lineup for that one if the team feels comfortable with his health.
May 4 - 4:44 PM

Jon Lester tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Cubs' 6-2 victory over the Pirates.

Lester ran into a couple of jams, yielding eight total hits and walking two, but he did a fine job of damage control as usual on the way to five strikeouts. The left-hander is now 3-1 with a 1.58 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 38/9 K/BB ratio in 40 innings this season for the first-place Cubs. He will take on the punchless Padres at home next time out.
May 4 - 4:16 PM

Jean Segura (hip) is out again Wednesday.

Segura also sat out Sunday and Tuesday with a nagging hip issue. It's thought to be minor. Phil Gosselin will start at second base and bat leadoff for Arizona on Wednesday night against Marlins ace Jose Fernandez.
May 4 - 3:51 PM

Steven Matz fired 7 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Mets' 8-0 blanking of the Braves.

Matz didn't walk a batter, gave up just two hits -- both singles -- and struck out eight. The young left-hander struggled in his 2016 debut April 11 against the Marlins, but he has been absolutely sensational since. Matz will carry a 2.83 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Dodgers. He also boasts a 30/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.

Yankees placed DH Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

A-Rod suffered the injury in the fifth inning Tuesday while running to first base. The veteran slugger is probably going to need more than the typical 15 days off. Dustin Ackley replaced him at designated hitter on Tuesday night, but look for the Yankees to work in several different names through that DH spot.
May 4 - 3:34 PM

Zach Britton (ankle) threw a 10-pitch bullpen session Wednesday without issue.

Britton has been on the shelf since spraining his left ankle last Saturday, but his return now appears imminent. Darren O'Day has been serving as the O's fill-in closer and earned his second save of 2016 on Tuesday.
May 4 - 3:31 PM

Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Reds' 7-4 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Suarez slugged a two-run homer off Giants starter Jake Peavy in the bottom of the second -- one of three homers in that frame versus Peavy. The third baseman then added an RBI single in the bottom of the third. Suarez has been slumping a bit since his hot start, but he now boasts six homers and 18 RBI in just 27 games.
