Mark Teixeira said after taking soft-toss on Saturday that his lacerated left pinkie finger is "probably 50 percent, but obviously that’s not going to get the job done."

Teixeria needed stitches to close the wound, but he says the cut isn't the issue. "It’s not the cut," Teixiera said. "The cut is — I don’t want to say irrelevant — but it’s the joint that’s really, really sore. So whether it was sprained or bruised — we’re not really sure — the joint is really sore. The cut you just wrap and play, (with) the joint I can’t grip a bat." Yankees manager Joe Girardi seemed more optimistic, saying Teixeira "felt better" and "it’s possible (Sunday) that he’s a player." The first baseman remains hopeful of avoiding the disabled list, but obviously he has some improvement to make.

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run that gave the Red Sox a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays on Thursday.

With two on in the fifth inning, Jays starter Marco Estrada tried to elevate a fastball to Martinez, who was strong enough to muscle it over the right field wall for a three-run shot. It ended up being the difference in the game. Martinez now has five homers on the year, and his 18 RBI are good for seventh-best in the American League through Thursday's games. The 30-year-old is hitting .306/.351/.565 in the early days of his Red Sox tenure.

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with the go-ahead RBI double in the eighth inning to lead the Mariners past the Indians 5-4 on Thursday.

With the game knotted at 4-4, Seager hit a high fly ball to left-center that missed being a two-run homer by a few feet. He settled for the RBI double that gave the M's a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Through 24 games, Seager is hitting .247/.297/.419 with three homers, 13 RBI and eight runs scored.

Fernando Rodney took a blown save and a loss after giving up a three-run homer to the Yankees' Gary Sanchez on Thursday.

The ninth started with a Miguel Sano error, which was immediately followed by a single and the walkoff blast. It makes three straight blown saves for Rodney. Of course, it probably hasn't helped that he's made a total of three appearances in two weeks. His ERA jumped from 4.05 to 6.75 today, but he was at 11.00 at this time last year and everything turned out fine. So, it's just a matter of whether the Twins want to remain as patient as the Diamondbacks did last year. Since they're 8-12 and they had much higher expectations, we wouldn't be surprised if they make the switch to Addison Reed. Still, they're probably better off just keeping Reed in a setup role and letting Rodney work his way out of it.

Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports that Jung Ho Kang has been granted a work visa to re-enter the United States and "will rejoin the Pirates in the coming days."

Kang's immigration lawyer posted a photo in a now-deleted tweet of Kang arriving at an airport Thursday afternoon in New York City. Biertempfel notes that it's unclear what kind of shape Kang is in and now long it will take him to actually return to the Pirates' active roster. The South Korean third baseman was not allowed into the United States last year after being arrested for his third DUI in Seoul in December 2016. This is a rather surprising turn of events.

Kris Bryant (head) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Thursday versus the Brewers.

Bryant has been sidelined since taking a pitch off his helmet on Sunday. He was scheduled to meet with team physician Dr. Stephen Adams on Thursday afternoon in Chicago, presumably for another round of concussion tests. Tommy La Stella will start at third base and bat fifth Thursday night against Rockies right-hander Chase Anderson.

Jose Abreu (flu) is out of the White Sox starting lineup on Thursday against the Royals.

Abreu left Wednesday's game after three innings due to flu-like symptoms. Consider him day-to-day. Matt Davidson is at first base and Daniel Palka is serving as Chicago's designated hitter in Thursday night's series opener at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium.

Joe Kelly will begin serving his six-game suspension on Thursday night.

Kelly was handed the suspension back on April 12 after intentionally hitting Tyler Austin with a pitch and inciting a benches-clearing brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees. Kelly filed an appeal, which is how he's remained active the past two weeks, but that appeal was officially denied by MLB on Thursday afternoon.

Indians placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Miller suffered the injury during an appearance Wednesday night against the Cubs. He figures to miss around two weeks. The dominant left-handed setup man leaves behind a 0.00 ERA and 17/4 K/BB ratio in 10 innings.
Apr 26 - 1:58 PM

Mets manager Mickey Callaway indicated Thursday that Steven Matz will remain on turn in the starting rotation.

"We’re going to get him where he needs to be," Callaway told reporters. Matz allowed seven runs -- three earned -- over just 3 1/3 innings in Wednesday night's loss to the Cardinals and now holds a 4.98 ERA through 21 2/3 total innings (five starts) this season. He's lined up to face the Braves next week, though an off day could allow the Mets to skip that start.
Apr 26 - 11:12 AM

Tommy Pham is starting in center field and hitting second on Thursday afternoon against the Mets.

Pham sliced open his forehead on Wednesday night while taking warmup swings with a resistance band, but the cut did not require stitches and he cleared MLB's concussion protocol. The dynamic 30-year-old outfielder is batting .343/.471/.514 with three home runs and five stolen bases through 21 games this season.
Apr 26 - 11:00 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is back in the Mets' starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

Cabrera was held out of Wednesday's game because of a minor hamstring injury. He will start at second base and bat third versus Carlos Martinez in Thursday afternoon's series finale at Busch Stadium. The 32-year-old currently leads the National League with a .349 batting average.
