Nick Martinez finally took his first loss after yielding two runs in seven innings Thursday against the Red Sox.

It was another remarkably solid start for Martinez, but we're still thoroughly unimpressed by his stuff. There's no taking away his 2.03 ERA through 10 starts, but he's going to start to fade.

In his major league debut, Eduardo Rodriguez hurled 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Rangers for a victory Thursday.

It seemed like Rodriguez would be done after seven, especially after an eighth inning that included two Rangers pitching changes and three Red Sox runs. However, he did come back out and strike out the next two batters he faced before giving up a walk and a single to get removed. It was just the third hit off him off the night. Rodriguez wasn't guaranteed anything more than the spot start going in, but he needs to be in the Red Sox rotation after this. He's worth picking up in mixed leagues.

Rockies prospect David Dahl will miss the remainder of the 2015 season after suffering a lacerated spleen in a gruesome collision in the outfield in a Double-A game on Thursday.

Dahl underwent successful surgery on Thursday to repair the massive laceration. Due to the severity of the injury, it's likely that he'll have to wear a protective device for the rest of his career to protect his spleen.

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer of May against the Rangers on Thursday.

Ramirez hit 10 homers in April, but this was his first since he hurt his shoulder earlier this month. He also doubled and walked in the game. It all seems like a very good sign for him getting back to being the game's top fantasy shortstop*.
May 28 - 11:16 PM

Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the Red Sox on Thursday.

The double off Eduardo Rodriguez was his first extra-base hit. Hamilton is 3-for-15 since coming off the disabled list on Monday.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Tyler Wagner will be recalled from Double-A Biloxi to start for the Brewers on Sunday.

The 24-year-old right-hander has posted a 2.01 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 38/15 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings at Double-A. With a strong showing, there's a chance that Wagner could stick around in the Brewers rotation while Wily Peralta recovers from his strained oblique.

Astros signed RHP Yoanis Quiala to a minor league contract.

The Astros reportedly view him as a starter due to his four-pitch mix, though some scouts believe his future will be in the bullpen. It's unclear at what level the 24-year-old will begin his professional career stateside.

Jonathan Lucroy (toe) went 1-for-3 in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Brevard County on Thursday.

He caught five innings in the contest. Lucroy has been sidelined since April 20 due to a broken big toe on his left foot. He's going to remain on his rehab assignment through the weekend before rejoining the Brewers on Monday in St. Louis.

Xander Bogaerts has been diagnosed with a bruised left forearm after being hit by a pitch in Thursday's game.

Red Sox fans and fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief that there's no serious damage. The young shortstop should return to the lineup in a day or two.
May 28 - 9:41 PM

Travis Snider went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Orioles topped the White Sox 6-3 in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

With the emergence of Jimmy Paredes, Snider has seen his playing time cut a bit in recent weeks. His two-hit effort on Thursday raised his season slash to .265/.351/.367 to go along with 10 RBI.
May 28 - 9:38 PM

Mike Wright picked up his second victory of the season on Thursday, limiting the White Sox to three runs on six hits over five frames in the second game of their doubleheader.

Wright struck out two on the afternoon without issuing a walk. All of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Adam Eaton belting a solo home run in the first inning and Adam LaRoche connecting on a two-run blast in the fifth. Wright now sports a 1.40 ERA on the season and should continue to hold a spot in the rotation while Bud Norris gets himself back on track.
May 28 - 9:36 PM

Adam LaRoche blasted a two-run homer as the White Sox fell to the Orioles in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

He finished the game 1-for-3 plus a walk, with his fifth inning bomb coming off of O's starter Mike Wright. LaRoche also had a big day in the first game of the twinbill, going 3-for-4 with an RBI. He's now slashing .235/.363/.383 with five homers and 20 RBI on the year and seems to be breaking out of his early-season funk.
May 28 - 9:34 PM

White Sox optioned RHP Chris Beck to Triple-A Charlotte.

Beck made a spot start in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles, allowing four runs on 10 hits over his six innings of work. The 24-year-old also issued four free passes while punching out three on the night. He should get another opportunity the next time the White Sox need an extra starter.
May 28 - 9:31 PM

Xander Bogaerts was removed from Thursday's game against the Rangers after being hit by a pitch in his left wrist.

He remained in the game for a few innings after he was drilled, but was pinch-hit for his next time through the order. He'll presumably head for precautionary X-rays and the Red Sox should have an update on his status after the game.
May 28 - 9:28 PM

Brewers sent RHP Rob Wooten outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's already pitching at Triple-A, but this clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Brewers. He'll continue to try to get back on track in the minors before hopefully rejoining the Brewers bullpen later in the season.
