Kyuji Fujikawa underwent Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.

The reconstructive elbow procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews and deemed a success. Fujikawa has already been placed on the 60-day disabled list and is unlikely to be ready to pitch for the Cubs again until June of next season. He signed a two-year, $9.5 million free agent contract with Chicago this past winter.

Mets manager Mickey Callaway indicated Thursday that Steven Matz will remain on turn in the starting rotation.

"We’re going to get him where he needs to be," Callaway told reporters. Matz allowed seven runs -- three earned -- over just 3 1/3 innings in Wednesday night's loss to the Cardinals and now holds a 4.98 ERA through 21 2/3 total innings (five starts) this season. He's lined up to face the Braves next week, though an off day could allow the Mets to skip that start.

Tommy Pham is starting in center field and hitting second on Thursday afternoon against the Mets.

Pham sliced open his forehead on Wednesday night while taking warmup swings with a resistance band, but the cut did not require stitches and he cleared MLB's concussion protocol. The dynamic 30-year-old outfielder is batting .343/.471/.514 with three home runs and five stolen bases through 21 games this season.

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is back in the Mets' starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

Cabrera was held out of Wednesday's game because of a minor hamstring injury. He will start at second base and bat third versus Carlos Martinez in Thursday afternoon's series finale at Busch Stadium. The 32-year-old currently leads the National League with a .349 batting average.

Reds activated 3B Eugenio Suarez from the 10-day disabled list.

Suarez is starting at third base and batting fifth on Thursday afternoon against Braves left-hander Sean Newcomb after missing just over two weeks with a fracture in his right thumb. The thought initially was that he could be sidelined through much of May. Suarez returns to a strong .296/.424/.630 batting line with two home runs and seven RBI in eight games played.

Joe Musgrove (shoulder) threw about 35 pitches over two innings in a simulated appearance on Wednesday.

Musgrove used all of his pitches and tried to ramp up the velocity on his fastball from previous throwing workouts. "It went really well. It was really encouraging," Musgrove said. "I didn't feel like there was any abnormality in the way I was moving and the things I was doing. The ball was coming out clean. The velo was in a decent range, kind of where I was expecting it to be." The 25-year-old right-hander could soon be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. He's on track to join the Pirates' rotation around mid-May, assuming no setbacks.

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-3 and swatted a home run during a 7-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

He laced an RBI-single in the first inning and upped the ante with a solo homer in the third frame. Gregorius is rocking a .347 batting average and is second in the majors with nine home runs. He leads the majors with 29 RBI. The 28-year-old shortstop was formerly best known for his glove but his bat has turned the tables.

Chad Kuhl struck out eight hitters and allowed three runs in six innings in an 8-3 win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

Kuhl gave up a two-run shot to Leonys Martin in the fifth inning, but outside of that he was solid in the victory. The right-hander's ERA now sits at 4.55, but he's struck out 25 hitters in just-under 28 innings, and that ERA should start to drop with a little more luck. He's an intriguing streaming option or DFS play against weaker lineups, but you probably should avoid him on Monday when he faces the Nationals in Washington.

Mookie Betts homered twice and drove in three runs to lead his team over the Blue Jays 4-3 on Wednesday.

He led off the game with a solo shot against starter Aaron Sanchez. He came to the plate with the Red Sox trailing by a run in the seventh inning when he slugged a two-run homer that provided his team with the winning runs. Betts has to be considered an early MVP candidate due to his .350/.442/.750 triple-slash with eight homers and 17 RBI. He leads the majors with 25 runs scored as well.
Apr 25 - 11:48 PM

Mets manager Mickey Callaway told reporters that he wouldn't commit to Stephen Matz making his next start.

Matz is scheduled to throw on Tuesday against the Braves. It sounds like that start might be in jeopardy now. "We need to sit down and talk to Matz and figure out how we can help him," Callaway told reporters. The southpaw has yet to go more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his starts, and he's gone four or less in three of the five. We recently saw the Mets remove Matt Harvey from the rotation. We might see the same thing with Matz.

Kris Bryant (head) could return to the lineup on Thursday after meeting with team physicians.

Bryant will reportedly meet with team physician Dr. Stephen Adams when the team returns to Chicago on Thursday, and if that meeting goes well, he could be back at third base for their game that day against the Brewers. The 26-year-old third baseman has gotten off to a sensational start on the season with a 1.003 OPS to show for it, and he'd be a welcome addition to the Chicago lineup for their big four-game series against Milwaukee.

Trevor Bauer struck out eight batters and allowed just one run in 6 2/3 innings to beat the Cubs 4-1 on Wednesday.

It was a strong outing against a very good lineup. Bauer scattered just four singles and three walks in the contest and improved his record to 2-2 after five starts. He has a marvelous 2.41 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 35 strikeouts in 33 2/3 innings. Bauer will face off against Cole Hamels and the Rangers on Monday.
