Trevor Bauer allowed just two hits over 6 2/3 innings and struck out eight in the Indians' 4-0 win over the Yankees in Game 1 of the ALDS.

A surprise pick for Game 1, Bauer came through in a big way, shutting down the Yankees just as he did in his two regular-season starts (one run in seven innings on Aug. 4 and one run in six innings on Aug. 30). Andrew Miller and Cody Allen finished the shutout tonight, and if there's any positive the Yankees can take away, it's that they made those two throw a combined 50 pitches with another game coming up on Friday. The only problem there is Corey Kluber is starting for the Indians, and he might not need much help if he's on.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Edwin Encarnacion (hand) is "all good."

Encarnacion exited Sunday's game after taking a pitch off his left hand/forearm but it sounds like he'll be ready to go for Friday's second-half opener at Texas. The veteran didn't hit for a high average during the first half (.225) but his power numbers (22 homers and 65 RBI) are about where they usually are this time of year.

Yankees activated C Gary Sanchez from the 10-day disabled list.

To clear a roster spot for him, the Yankees optioned Kyle Higashioka to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Sanchez is back after missing about a month with a strained groin. The 25-year-old managed just two hits in 12 at-bats during his rehab stint with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, though both were home runs. He should be back behind the plate for Friday's second-half opener against the Mets.

According to TR Sullivan of MLB.com, Keone Kela and Jake Diekman are both drawing trade interest.

Many contenders will be looking to bolster their bullpens ahead of the July 31 trade deadline and Kela and Diekman both have the goods to be difference-makers down the stretch. Kela has been especially impressive, converting all 23 of his save chances this year while delivering an electric 10.91 K/9. With Texas heading toward a rebuild, there's a good chance the Rangers will be sellers at the deadline.

Shelby Miller's MRI showed no further damage to his injured elbow.

Despite this, Miller be shut down for at least another week. The right-hander has struggled mightily since coming back from Tommy John surgery (0-4, 11.40 ERA) and landed on the DL with renewed elbow inflammation prior to the All-Star break. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him for any significant contributions down the stretch.

Shohei Ohtani (elbow) has been cleared to begin a "throwing progression."

Ohtani was evaluated by Dr. Steve Yoon, who gave him the go-ahead to resume throwing. This comes six weeks after Ohtani received a platelet rich plasma injection to combat a UCL sprain in his right elbow. Ohtani appears to be ahead of schedule as it took teammate Garrett Richards 13 weeks to resume throwing following a similar procedure in 2016. It remains to be seen whether the 24-year-old will be able to pitch again this season, but he seems to finally be trending in the right direction. In the meantime, Ohtani will continue to see at-bats as the Angels' DH.

Cubs pitching coach Jim Hickey said Yu Darvish (elbow, triceps) is still "weeks away" from returning.

Darvish was expected to resume mound work soon, but no mention was made of that on Thursday ahead of Chicago's first-half opener against St. Louis. The right-hander has seen numerous starts and stops throughout his rehab. He hasn't thrown a pitch in a big league setting since May 20. With Darvish still ailing, perhaps the Cubs will look to add an arm at the upcoming trade deadline.

Evan Longoria (hand) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

It will be Longoria's first game action since going down with a broken hand on June 14. He'll surely need a few games to shake off the rust, but it shouldn't be long until the 32-year-old returns to the big leagues. Veteran Pablo Sandoval has been filling in for him at the hot corner.

Cubs placed RHP Brandon Morrow on the 10-day disabled list with right biceps inflammation.

The move was made retroactive to July 16. Morrow's spot on the roster will be absorbed by Anthony Bass, who is back after missing the past two weeks with an illness. This is already Morrow's second trip to the DL this season after injuring his lower back while putting on his pants (seriously) last month. Steve Cishek, Carl Edwards Jr. and Pedro Strop will be candidates to handle the ninth inning in Morrow's absence.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Cespedes has finally turned a corner in his rehab lately and slugged a three-run home run in his second rehab game with the Gulf Coast League Mets on Wednesday. He can serve as a designated hitter this weekend against the Yankees before returning to left field and also perhaps playing some first base. Cespedes has been ut since mid-May with a hip injury.

Jose Martinez is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Thursday.

Martinez has been on the pine for both of interim manager Mike Shildt's lineups (and has been benched in three straight games overall), as Shildt has gone with the better defensive combo of Mike Carpenter at first base and Jedd Gyorko at third. It's certainly a concern for Martinez's fantasy owners. As good as Martinez has been offensively this season, he's not looking like a reliable mixed league play right now unless Shildt reverses course (or the Cards trade him).

Padres acquired C/OF Francisco Mejia from the Indians in exchange for LHP Brad Hand and RHP Adam Cimber.

Mejia has looked ready for an extended shot in the majors for a while but was blocked in Cleveland by superior defenders in Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez. Austin Hedges is also a much better defender, but he's so bad offensively that Mejia could push him aside and nab the starting job in San Diego in short order. Hedges will remain the starter for now while Mejia reports to Triple-A El Paso, but Mejia is a good stash in deeper leagues where he's available.
