Yankees activated SS Didi Gregorius from the 10-day disabled list.

Gregorius missed almost the entire first month of the season with a strained right shoulder that he suffered during the World Baseball Classic, but he played in some rehab games with no issues. He'll resume his role as the Yankees' everyday shortstop.

Lucas Duda (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment on Friday.

Duda is eligible for activation on Sunday and should be ready at that time after recovering from a hyperextended left elbow. The Mets need him with Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) headed to the disabled list.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Mets will place Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) on the disabled list.

It's no surprise, of course, as Cespedes had to exit the field with assistance after aggravating his left hamstring injury. Heyman notes that it's "unknown" at this point how long the outfielder will be sidelined, but more information will be available after Cespedes has an MRI on Friday. Michael Conforto will play every day with Cespedes on the shelf. Heyman notes that the club is considering calling up a pitcher to replace Cespedes on the roster.

Cam Bedrosian (groin) has yet to begin a throwing program.

Bedrosian has been on the disabled list for nearly a week with a strained right groin but remains shut down. He's eligible to return from the DL next Tuesday, but it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. Bud Norris has been capably filling the Angels' closer role with Bedrosian out.

The tendinitis in Adrian Gonzalez's right forearm has remained an issue during the first month of the season.

Gonzalez showed up to spring training with the issue and was shut down for two weeks in hopes that it would dissipate. It improved enough for him to participate in the World Baseball Classic, but clearly the ailment is still nagging him. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts admitted that the fact that Gonzalez has never been on the disabled list in his career is a "factor" in why the club hasn't considered placing him on the DL to this point. The team eventually could reconsider if Gonzalez (.250/.341/.319) doesn't improve, but Roberts said Thursday that he thinks Gonzalez's injury is "getting better" and the first baseman is "getting more extension with that lead arm." The club has Cody Bellinger as an option at first base should Gonzalez ultimately wind up on the DL.

The Royals plan to keep Jorge Soler (oblique) on his rehab assignment through May 10.

That's when the allotted 20-day period runs out. "His rehab assignment runs through May 10," general manager Dayton Moore said Thursday. "And at this point in time, we fully expect to utilize that period of time for him to get some at-bats and get caught up." It had been looking like Soler could be activated as soon as this weekend, but apparently his fantasy owners will have to wait a while longer. Soler is batting .250/.348/.550 with two homers in his first six rehab contests.

Bud Norris pitched a scoreless ninth inning Thursday to close out a 2-1 win over the Athletics.

Norris issued a one-out walk to Yonder Alonso but pitched around any further damage, finishing off the A's without incident. He's now a perfect 4-for-4 in save opportunities since taking over for the injured Cam Bedrosian, and the 32-year-old has a legit 2.84 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 15/5 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings. Bedrosian was similarly dominant before hitting the shelf, but Norris may actually be forcing his way into manager Mike Scioscia's plans at closer and is worth an add in mixed leagues to find out.

Chris Owings did it all Thursday, homering twice and stealing a base to help the Diamondbacks down the Padres 6-2.

Owings hit a pair of solo jacks off batting practice fastba-- er, Padres starter Jered Weaver, popping one in the third inning before doing it again an inning later. He's now among the league leaders in RBI (19) and stolen bases (6), a testament to the kind of all-around month the 25-year-old is having. Owings is batting .325/.365/.550 with four homers and 12 runs to boot. Add him where you can.

Taijuan Walker struck out 11 while allowing two runs over eight innings in a win over the Padres on Thursday.

Walker had everything working, turning in easily his best start as a member of the Diamondbacks. Facing the Padres helps, too. The right-hander allowed just four hits without issuing a walk, running his record to 3-1 with a 3.94 ERA through five starts overall. One bright spot is his 33/7 K/BB ratio in those 29 2/3 innings of work. Walker will face a much stiffer test Wednesday when the D'backs face the Nationals in the nation's capital.

Dexter Fowler went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored as the Cardinals swept Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays with a 6-4 win in the nightcap.

The Cardinals put up runs in each of the first four innings, with Fowler's homer off Jays starter Casey Lawrence coming in the second. The homer was his third of the year and gives his 15 runs scored in 21 games. He went 5-for-9 on the day and seven hits in his last 14 at-bats with three extra-base hits, suggesting he may be breaking out of an early season slump that has his line at .224/.295/.388 through 21 games.
Apr 27 - 11:58 PM

Masahiro Tanaka was masterful in Thursday's shutout win over the Red Sox, allowing just three hits in a 3-0 victory.

Tanaka didn't do it with overpowering stuff, striking out just three, but he got 16 ground ball outs and needed just 97 pitches to finish the deed. The win was Tanaka's third in a row, and after a rocky start to the year he's now 3-1 with a 4.20 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. The 28-year-old will take on the struggling Blue Jays in his next start Tuesday.
