Rays placed C Ryan Hanigan on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 9, with an oblique strain.

The injury dates back to before the All-Star break and Hanigan should be ready to return to the active roster late next week. It's the second stint on the disabled list this season for the 33-year-old catcher, who is batting .212/.309/.327 in 61 games with Tampa Bay.

Aaron Judge set a record with his home run in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, becoming the fastest to 61 career home runs, in terms of games played, in baseball history.

Judge caught a hanging breaking ball from Jays reliever Tyler Clippard and hooked it into the left field seats in the seventh inning for the solo shot. It was his 61st homer in 199 career games, besting Mark McGwire's record of 204 that had stood since 1988. No stranger to records or success, the 25-year-old is having another stellar start to a season this year, batting .339/.481/.629 with five homers, 12 RBI and 16 runs scored through 17 games.

Updating an earlier report, Hunter Pence will sit out Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks due to a sore right thumb.

The injury might explain his recent struggles. With Jeff Samardzija (pectoral) set to return Friday, the Giants could clear a roster spot by placing Pence on the disabled list. Pence hasn't looked right this year, batting just .172 with 22 strikeouts in 58 at-bats.

Padres optioned RHP Luis Perdomo to Triple-A El Paso.

Kirby Yates was activated from the disabled list in the corresponding move. Perdomo has been dreadful this year, delivering an unsightly 8.36 ERA in four starts for the Friars. During that span he also served a five-game suspension for inciting a brawl with Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado. The right-hander hasn't pitched in the minors since 2015 when he was still in the Cardinals' organization.

Ryan Braun (calf) hopes to play Friday against the Marlins.

Braun has sat out the last two games but said his troublesome calf is feeling much better. He'll go through pre-game workouts on Friday with the hope of returning to the starting lineup. The 34-year-old has struggled to a .200 average through 55 at-bats this year.

Shohei Ohtani (blister) will serve as the Angels' DH Thursday against the Red Sox.

Ohtani's start was cut short due to a blister on Tuesday night, though manager Mike Scioscia doesn't think the blister will affect his hitting. He'll bat sixth against Boston lefty Eduardo Rodriguez. The rookie sensation has hit a robust .367 this year with three homers and 11 RBI.
Apr 19 - 5:12 PM

Eric Thames is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Marlins.

Thames has homered in back-to-back games but will get the night off against left-hander Dillon Peters. Jesus Aguilar will hold down the fort at first base for the Brew Crew.
Apr 19 - 4:43 PM

Maikel Franco is not in the Phillies' lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

Instead, Scott Kingery is starting at third base and batting sixth against Bucs right-hander Jameson Taillon. Franco isn't hurt, so it appears he's just getting a breather. The 25-year-old leads the team with 17 RBI, though he's batting only .220 through 50 at-bats this year.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday that Ken Giles has been unavailable for the last couple of games due to a back issue.

And it sounds like the hard-throwing closer won't be available on Thursday, either, with a DL stint looming as a possibility. "When we got to Seattle he reported a little bit of back soreness and it’s progressively gotten a little bit worse to where he can’t go yet," said Hinch. "Right now given that he can’t move around and do the things that he normally does, it’s a little concerning." Chris Devenski should already be owned in all standard fantasy leagues.

Freddie Freeman has no fractures in his left wrist and is considered day-to-day.

Phew. Freeman got struck on the wrist by a 90 mph Holby Milner fastball on Wednesday night -- the same wrist he fractured in 2017 -- but all is apparently well. The star first baseman might only miss a game or two.
Apr 19 - 1:42 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said he thinks Max Kepler (knee) is "going to be OK."

Kepler was pulled from Wednesday's series finale against the Indians with some discomfort in his right knee, but Molitor says that move was mostly precautionary. The Twins have an off day Thursday as they make their way back from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Kepler will be reevaluated ahead of Friday night's series opener at Tampa Bay. Ryan LaMarre replaced him in the outfield Wednesday and went on to hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 16th inning.

Tommy Pham told Jim Hayes of Fox Sports Midwest on Thursday that his right groin is fine.

Pham felt some discomfort in the groin toward the end of Tuesday night's win over the Cubs, but he finished out that game in center field and could be available in Thursday afternoon's makeup (for Wednesday's rainout) at Wrigley Field. St. Louis will instead play it safe, starting Harrison Bader in center and batting him second Thursday against Cubs left-hander Jon Lester. Pham should be back in there for Friday's series opener versus the Reds.
