Scott Diamond pitched seven scoreless innings as the Twins defeated the Red Sox 6-1 on Tuesday.

Diamond allowed just three hits and no walks over his seven innings to earn his third win of the year. The left-hander doesn't strike out a ton of batters, but he manages to get results. He's a much better real-life pitcher than fantasy pitcher, though, so he's best left for AL-only and only the deepest mixed leagues. His next turn will come Sunday against the Orioles.

Christian Yelich (back) is out again Thursday.

This will be the fifth game in a row that Yelich has missed with what the Marlins originally labeled back spasms. It's probably something a little more serious than that. Derek Dietrich is starting in left field in a very patchwork lineup for the Fish on Thursday afternoon against the Rays.

Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Rays.

Stanton also sat out Wednesday after complaining of soreness in his right side. He has been struggling offensively since a collision with teammate Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. All of this seems related.

Dodgers top pitching prospect Julio Urias will make his major league debut Friday against the Mets.

Here we go. Urias has been regarded as one of the top young pitching talents in baseball since age 16 and he will debut Friday night at Citi Field at the age of 19. The left-hander was sporting a dominant 1.10 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, and 44/8 K/BB ratio through 41 innings this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll be filling in Friday for Alex Wood, who has been scratched due to left triceps tightness. It's not clear what the plan is beyond Friday's game.

Jean Segura (head) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

Segura was taken to a hospital in Pittsburgh and tested for a concussion Tuesday after getting plunked on the side of the batting helmet by a 96 mph Arquimedes Caminero fastball. He somehow managed to avoid a serious injury and will bat leadoff in his return to action Thursday afternoon versus Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.

Asdrubal Cabrera (back) hopes to return for Friday's series opener versus the Dodgers.

Cabrera made an early exit from Wednesday's series finale against the Nationals after experiencing back spasms. "All of a sudden, it locked up on him downstairs as he was stretching," Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday night. "He says he feels fine and will be ready for Friday. I hope he is." Cabrera is batting .283/.335/.392 with three home runs and 17 RBI in 46 games this season for New York.

Leonys Martin (hamstring) only expects to miss a couple of games.

Martin was lifted from Wednesday's defeat of the Athletics after tweaking his left hamstring while running the bases in the bottom of the third inning. "They decided to take me out of the game to be smart," the hot-hitting center fielder said late Wednesday. "But I hope to be back in a few days. We've got a day off tomorrow and we'll see. This is the first time I've had this happen, but it'll be all right."

Adam Lind went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI to help propel the Mariners past the A's 13-3 on Wednesday.

Between his steady track record and the Mariners' fine start, Lind hasn't lost playing time to Dae Ho Lee at first base. He really should consider himself lucky, given that he entered the night with a .216/.246/.319 line. Of course, even if Lee does seem capable, Lind was always the better bet as a starter against righties. He should be solid from here on out.

David Freese went 1-for-3 with a go-ahead, two-run homer in the fifth inning in Wednesday's 5-4 comeback win over the Diamondbacks.

Freese clobbered a hanging two-strike slider from Rubby De La Rosa in the fifth inning, ending the pitcher's night and giving the Pirates a lead they wouldn't relinquish. He has lost some playing time with the return of Jung Ho Kang; however, the 33-year-old is an ideal bench player for a contending club. He's now hitting .277/.365/.394 with 23 runs scored and 14 runs batted in.

Carlos Gomez (ribs) hit a solo home run in a rehab game Wednesday night with Double-A Corpus Christi.

It was his first home run at any level of baseball since the calendar turned to 2016. Gomez ultimately finished the night 1-for-4 and is now 1-for-8 through two rehab games. The center fielder was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games for Houston when he landed on the disabled list May 16 with a bruised left rib cage. He'll be back in the majors next week.
May 25 - 10:51 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) said that he will play against the Rockies on Thursday.

"Unless I'm benched," Pedroia said of his status for Thursday. He felt a cramp on a groundout in the early innings of Wednesday's stomping of the Rockies and the Red Sox training staff told him to take it easy. When he jogged into second on a fifth-inning double, he was subsequently lifted for pinch-runner Marco Hernandez. We will see if Pedroia can make good on his boast in Thursday's series finale versus Colorado.

Jonny Gomes told WEEI's Rob Bradford that he is not retiring.

Bradford tweeted that he "just talked to Jonny Gomes," so this about as certain as you're going to get outside of Gomes himself calling a press conference. Earlier in the day, MLB Daily Dish's Chris Cotillo had reported that the well-traveled veteran outfielder had decided to retire. Gomes played for the Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan up until May 11, when he left "by mutual consent." He hit just .169/.280/.246 over 75 plate appearances in Nippon Professional Baseball.
