R.A. Dickey allowed eight hits and three runs over seven innings in Thursday's loss to the Indians.
Dickey gave up two solo home runs among his eight hits allowed, running his total to 19 homers allowed through 17 starts. He also walked one and struck out four in the loss. Dickey fell to 5-9 with a 4.21 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the year, dropping three of his last four decisions. He'll try to get back in the win column Tuesday against the Royals.
Jason Kipnis went 2-for-3 with a home run in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.
Kipnis extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a single in the first inning, adding the solo shot in the third for good measure. The second baseman now has three homers in his last seven games and 11 overall. He's hitting .271/.328/.452 with 45 RBI and 39 runs scored.
Ubaldo Jimenez will start Sunday's game against the Mariners.
Jimenez is slowly winning back Buck Showalter's trust after being dropped from the rotation earlier this month. He scattered three hits and one run over five solid innings in his last outing Tuesday against San Diego. Since rejoining the rotation on June 22, Jimenez has lowered his ERA from 7.34 to 6.63.
Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel posted a picture of himself wearing Yankees gear on his Instagram account.
That would suggest he had a workout with the team on Thursday. It's Gurriel's fourth known workout after previous visits with the Astros, Mets and Dodgers. It's unclear where he would fit on the Yankees with Chase Headley installed at third base and Starlin Castro at second. We'd expect Gurriel to sign shortly after the international signing window opens on July 2.
Orioles optioned RHP Oliver Drake to Triple-A Norfolk.
Drake has had back-to-back rough outings, allowing six runs in only 2 1/3 innings against the Padres earlier this week. The 29-year-old should have more chances in Baltimore as the year rolls on.
