Matt Garza would start against the Indians in the AL Wild Card play-in game on Wednesday if the Rangers defeat the Rays on Monday.

He would be opposed by Danny Salazar. Garza has been a disappointment since joining the Rangers, posting a 4.38 ERA over 13 starts.

Hanley Ramirez (hand) is hoping to start Friday.

Ramirez was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Thursday after taking a pitch off his left hand on Wednesday night. X-rays were taken and turned up negative. Justin Turner is playing shortstop Thursday.

Mark Teixeira (hamstring) played three innings at extended spring training on Thursday afternoon.

Teixeria is eligible to return from the disabled list on Sunday and told George King III of the New York Post that he will be "disappointed" if the Yankees don't activate him. He's been out since April 5 with a hamstring strain.

Jason Kipnis was ejected from Thursday's game against the Tigers after a third-inning swinging strikeout.

Kipnis was angry about a low-in-the-zone called strike earlier in the at-bat. He fanned with the bases loaded and also grounded into a doubleplay in the first inning. Mike Aviles came on to play second base. It was the first ejection of Kipnis' major league career.

Clayton Kershaw (back) threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session on Thursday afternoon.

Kershaw worked in some breaking balls and finished the session with "a couple lively fastballs," according to MLB.com's Ken Gurnick. The ace left-hander should begin facing live hitters by early next week and is on track to rejoin the Dodgers around mid-May.

Cardinals placed RHP Joe Kelly on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Kelly suffered the injury Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park while trying to leg out a groundball to first base in the top of the fifth inning. He was sent back to St. Louis for an MRI, the results of which aren't yet available. Tyler Lyons appears likely to take his rotation spot next week against the Mets.

Casey Janssen has been shut down temporarily with renewed discomfort in his lower back.

Janssen threw a scoreless rehab inning on Tuesday but woke up the next day with a sore back. He has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a strained muscle in his lower back and abdomen. Sergio Santos remains the Blue Jays' closer.

Jose Reyes (hamstring) is now expected to rejoin the Blue Jays on Saturday in Cleveland.

The weather looks iffy for Friday's series-opener with the Indians, and the Jays don't want to risk Reyes returning to a cold and muddy infield. The 30-year-old shortstop left Toronto's series-opener on March 31 with hamstring inflammation. He did not suffer a strain.

Corey Hart is playing right field for the first time with the Mariners Thursday afternoon vs. the Rangers.

Hart missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing dual knee surgeries, so he has been limited to DH duties in his 10 starts so far with Seattle. The 32-year-old has displayed good power in the early going, boasting three home runs in 43 plate appearances.
Apr 17 - 10:48 AM

Evan Gattis is not in the Braves' starting lineup for Thursday's series-finale against the Phillies.

Gerald Laird is starting behind the plate. Gattis, who's batting .375 with a 1.135 OPS and four home runs in 10 games this season, is simply getting a day of rest.
Apr 17 - 10:09 AM

Lorenzo Cain left Wednesday night's game against the Astros with a Grade 1 groin strain.

That's the least severe type of strain, but Cain could still be looking at an extended absence. The 28-year-old outfielder was off to a decent start this season, boasting a .333 batting average and two steals in 12 games. Jarrod Dyson figures to get a boost in playing time and may be worth an add in fantasy leagues for his speed.
Apr 17 - 8:38 AM

Fernando Rodney blew his first save of the season and earned the loss, serving up two runs to the Rangers in the ninth inning as they walked off 3-2 winners on Wednesday.

Rodney, who had been 3-for-3 in save opportunities, appeared to have another easy night on his hands, getting the first two outs in the ninth. Then he walked Mitch Moreland, saw Donnie Murphy reach on Brad Miller's throwing error, threw a wild pitch to allow the tying run to score, then gave up the winning run on Leonys Martin's walk-off single. Rodney always finds a way to make it interesting, but he has earned 85 saves and posted a 1.91 ERA over the last two seasons.
