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.

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.

Corey Kluber struck out a season-high 10 batters while allowing three runs over seven innings in the Indians' 4-3 win over the Astros on Thursday.

Kluber got off to a rocky start, allowing three runs through the first three innings, but he settled down to keep the Astros off the board for his final four frames. The win was his third in a row, improving him to 3-1 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 37/12 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings. Kluber will try to run his streak to four when he faces the Tigers in Detroit on Tuesday.

The Padres will hold a private workout with Cuban outfielder Luis Robert on Friday.

The workout will be held in the Dominican Republic. Robert worked out for the Reds on Tuesday and has also been scouted by the Athletics. He'll be free to sign with a team of his choosing beginning on May 20. The 19-year-old slashed .314/.409/.467 during his four seasons in the Cuban National Series.

Shelby Miller is evaluating his options after being diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow.

He's also dealing with a strained flexor tendon. We assumed the injury was serious when news spread of Miller sending his MRI results to Dr. James Andrews. Now Miller must decide whether to rehab his ailing elbow or undergo Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for at least a year. The rehab route is not unprecedented—Garrett Richards and Masahiro Tanaka have both done it—but most pitchers opt for Tommy John. The injury is a devastating blow for Miller, who had been aiming for a bounce-back season after disappointing in his first year as a Diamondback.

Gary Sanchez (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

Sanchez is progressing rapidly in his recovery from a strained biceps. He's resumed hitting in the batting cage and is already throwing up to 120 feet. Sanchez should be back in the Bronx before no time. Austin Romine has done most of the catching during his absence.

Matt Carpenter slugged a walkoff grand slam in the bottom of the 11th inning Thursday as the Cardinals roared back to beat the Blue Jays 8-4 in the first game of a doubleheader.

Carpenter hit an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth and then ended the game with his four-run blast in the 11th, finishing 2-for-5 with a walk and five RBI in the afternoon victory. Randal Grichuk sent the game to extras with a game-tying two-run blast off Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna in the ninth. Carpenter, 31, is slashing .250/.373/.417 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games this season.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi expects Didi Gregorius (shoulder) to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Gregorius is ready to roll after completing a five-game rehab assignment with High-A Tampa. It took him a little over a month to recover from a strained shoulder. With Gregorius taking over as the everyday shortstop, Ronald Torreyes will head back to the bench.
