The Yankees will sign Brian Roberts to a one-year deal worth $2 million plus incentives, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

Morosi's colleague, Ken Rosenthal, first reported news of the Roberts-Yankees marriage on Monday evening. Roberts averaged 152 games played per year and posted a robust .290/.365/.438 slash line between 2004-09, but his career has been wrecked by injuries since. He's averaged just 48 games played per season over the past four years, and posted a sickly .246/.310/.359 line when he's been on the field over that period. New York seems likely to host a second base competition between the 36-year-old Roberts and Kelly Johnson, but counting on Roberts to stay healthy for more than a third of the season is a losing proposition. At least the price was right.

Conor Gillaspie (foot) will start the second half of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Gillaspie was held out of action Monday-Wednesday in Toronto for fear that the Rogers Centre turf would aggravate his lingering plantar fasciitis. Gordon Beckham is at third base for the White Sox in the first game Thursday at Camden Yards, but Gillaspie will man the hot corner in the nightcap.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said David Robertson probably won't pitch in Thursday's doubleheader.

Robertson blew back-to-back saves on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Wednesday's appearance was a two-inning affair. Chicago will play the matchups if a save opportunity arises at some point Thursday at Camden Yards. Robertson still owns a shiny 2.61 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings this season and is not at all in danger of losing his job as the White Sox closer.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed that Avisail Garcia (knee) won't play in either half of Thursday's doubleheader at Baltimore's Camden Yards.

Garcia hasn't played since leaving Monday's game in Toronto with discomfort in his right knee. It's something that has been bothering him for a couple of weeks, so the White Sox want to give him some extended rest. The 23-year-old is batting .327/.365/.456 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games this season. J.B. Shuck is in right field in the first half Thursday.

Grant Balfour is said to be leaning toward retirement.

Balfour opted out of his minor league contract with the Rays on Wednesday after allowing nine hits and four walks in 9 2/3 innings at Triple-A Durham. The 37-year-old right-hander is still hauling in $7 million this season from a deal signed with Tampa Bay two offseasons ago. If this is indeed it, Balfour, a native of Australia, will finish his major league career with a cool 3.49 ERA, 1.219 WHIP, and 84 saves.

Matt Adams will undergo surgery Friday to repair a torn right quadriceps muscle.

The same 3-4 month timetable holds, though that still could mean the rest of the season for the big first baseman. Adams tore his right quad on Tuesday night while legging out a double. Mark Reynolds has taken over as the Cardinals' starting first baseman and holds a good amount of mixed-league fantasy value as a power threat in a deep lineup. It's another tough blow for the Cards, and yet they have the best record and run differential in Major League Baseball.

Tuffy Gosewisch will have an MRI taken of his left knee Thursday.

Gosewisch left Wednesday's game with a jammed left knee, and the Diamondbacks want to know the extent of the injury before developing a gameplan. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the club could make a decision about a possible disabled list stint by Friday.
May 27 - 11:49 PM

Max Scherzer pitched seven shutout innings and struck out 13 as the Nationals beat the Cubs 3-0 on Wednesday.

It's Scherzer's fifth career start with at least 13 strikeouts and first with the Nationals. He's won five straight starts since opening the season 1-3, and he has a 1.51 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP overall. He might have enough of a head start on Clayton Kershaw to qualify as the NL Cy Young favorite, though we'd still take Kershaw for the rest of the season.
May 27 - 11:24 PM

Chris Davis hit two homers, including the game-winning blast, to propel the Orioles past the Astros 5-4 on Wednesday.

Davis connected on a two-run homer against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the fourth inning before launching a game-winning solo shot in the eighth. The multi-homer game was Davis' first this season. Davis is hitting just .216/.293/.464 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in the middle of the Orioles' lineup this season.
May 27 - 8:20 PM

Scott Kazmir will have an MRI of his left shoulder taken Thursday.

Kazmir left Wednesday's start against the Tigers after three innings with shoulder tightness, so the club will have it looked at. More should be known about his outlook after the results of the MRI are known.
May 27 - 7:01 PM

Yoenis Cespedes finished 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Tigers' 3-2 defeat of the A's on Wednesday afternoon at Oakland's O.co Coliseum.

Cespedes drew a walk in the top of the second, singled in the top of the fourth, and then clubbed a three-run homer off A's reliever Dan Otero in the top of the fifth. All while receiving friendly applause from the Oakland fans in his old stomping ground. Cespedes is batting .291/.327/.489 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 48 games this season for Detroit.
May 27 - 6:56 PM

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday that Matt Adams could need surgery on his right quad.

Adams injured the quad Tuesday while legging out a double and the Cardinals are still determining whether it's a Grade 2 or Grade 3 strain. Grade 3 is the most severe and would almost certainly require a surgical procedure. Either way, Adams is looking at a lengthy absence. Mark Reynolds will serve as the Cardinals' primary first baseman.
