Tigers placed 2B Ian Kinsler on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Bud Norris is considered day-to-day with soreness in his right knee.

The injury forced the veteran right-hander to leave Friday's game against the Marlins. It doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him held out through the rest of the weekend as a precautionary measure.

Devon Travis had a monster day at the plate on Friday, going 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in a 7-6 victory over the Rangers.

Travis got the Blue Jays on the board with a grand slam off of A.J. Griffin in the second inning. He wound up finishing the night just a triple shy of the cycle. After a miserable start to the season, Travis' bat has heated up substantially in recent weeks and he's now hitting .252/.287/.439 with four homers, 19 RBI and four stolen bases on the season.

Masahiro Tanaka struck out a career-high 13 batters Friday against the Athletics, but took the loss after allowing one run in 7 1/3 innings.

That’s more like it. Tanaka held the Athletics scoreless through seven innings before giving up a one-out single to Adam Rosales in the eighth. Tyler Clippard took over from there and allowed the inherited runner to score, putting Tanaka in position for the loss. It was a tough luck situation, but the Yankees and fantasy owners should feel very good about this performance. Tanaka gave up just five hits in all while walking none and inducing 26 swings and misses in his 111 pitches. He’ll try to build off this one when he faces the Orioles on the road next week.

Jacob deGrom struck out 10 and allowed one run over 8 1/3 innings in Friday’s victory over the Pirates.

It was the longest outing by a Mets starter this season. And boy, did they need it. DeGrom allowed just six hits and one walk, with the lone run scoring on a solo homer from Gregory Polanco in the fourth inning. Terry Collins gave him the chance to go the distance initially, but deGrom gave up a leadoff single to Polanco and struck out David Freese looking before being pulled at 118 pitches. DeGrom improved to 4-1 with the victory and now owns a 3.23 ERA and 86/24 K/BB ratio in 64 innings through 10 starts.

Neil Walker teed off on his old team on Friday, going 3-for-5 with two homers, four RBI, and three runs scored in an 8-1 victory over the Pirates.

Walker clubbed a two-run homer in the third inning and a solo shot in the fifth, giving him his fifth career mulit-homer game. He later added an RBI single in the sixth for good measure. The 31-year-old had a very quiet April, but he’s batting .345 (30-for-87) with four home runs and 18 RBI this month.

Tim Adleman delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's victory over the Reds, allowing just one hit over eight shutout innings.

Adleman walked two and struck out four on the night. The only hit against him came on an Andres Blanco one-out single in the first inning. Now 3-2 on the season, the right-hander will look to further improve upon his 4.95 ERA and 1.25 WHIP when he takes on the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday.

He made a bit for his first complete game of the season, but he was lifted after hitting Ryan Schimpf to load the bases with two outs in the inning. Scherzer now boasts a 2.77 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 89/18 K/BB ratio across 68 1/3 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the Giants his next time out on Wednesday in San Francisco.
