Jean Segura is getting the day off Thursday afternoon against the Yankees.

Andrew Romine will start at shortstop and bat ninth versus right-hander Luis Severino. This looks to be a routine day of maintenance for Segura, who boasts a .334/.359/.480 batting line with six home runs, 44 RBI, 14 stolen bases, and 52 runs scored in 71 games this season.

Yankees activated RHP Luis Cessa from the 10-day disabled list.

Cessa will return to the Yankees' bullpen ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Mariners after missing over two months with a severe left oblique strain. The 26-year-old right-hander allowed just one unearned run over four innings in his last rehab appearance June 16 at Double-A Trenton. He'll work in long relief.

Yankees placed RHP A.J. Cole on the 10-day disabled list with a left neck strain.

Cole has pitched well for the Yankees since they acquired him from the Nationals in late April, posting a 0.69 ERA and 15 strikeouts across 13 innings of relief. Luis Cessa (oblique) has been activated off the DL in a corresponding move.

Brett Gardner (knee) remains out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Thursday against the Mariners.

Gardner has apparently made some progress in his recovery from a sore right knee, but he'll sit out for a fifth straight game with the Mariners starting left-hander James Paxton in this matinee tilt at Yankee Stadium. Giancarlo Stanton is in left field and Gary Sanchez is taking a turn at designated hitter.

Aaron Hicks is getting the day off Thursday against the Mariners.

Clint Frazier will start in center field and bat leadoff versus Mariners left-hander James Paxton. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Hicks, who's batting .300/.364/.617 through 66 plate appearances in June.

Esmil Rogers has been released from his contract with the Nexen Heroes of the Korea Baseball Organization.

The Nexen Heroes have in turn signed 35-year-old right-hander Eric Hacker to a one-year, $300,000 contract. KBO teams are only allowed to carry three foreign-born players, per league rules. Rogers broke his right ring finger on June 3 when he took a comebacker off his pitching hand.

Eric Hacker has signed a one-year, $300,000 contract with the Nexen Heroes of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Hacker headed to South Korea in 2013, after struggling in a short stint with the Giants, and is now gearing up for his sixth straight season in the KBO. The 35-year-old right-hander posted a 3.42 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 97/29 K/BB ratio across 160 1/3 innings (26 starts) in 2017 with the NC Dinos.

Nick Williams (nose) went 1-for-4 in his return to the Phillies' starting lineup Wednesday.

Williams suffered a broken nose on Monday night when he got struck in the face by a ball that ricocheted off the right field fence at Citizens Bank Park, but he toughed it out to play a full nine innings on Wednesday afternoon. The 24-year-old is slashing .232/.300/.427 with eight home runs in 65 games this year.

Jung Ho Kang is day-to-day at Triple-A Indianapolis due to left wrist discomfort.

Kang was scratched from the lineup at Indianapolis on Wednesday and might need a couple more day of rest, but this doesn't sound like anything too serious. "He did not identify one particular mechanism of injury," Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk told reporters. Kang, who missed the entire 2017 season following his third DUI arrest in South Korea, got clearance to re-enter the United States in late April and has batted .340/.435/.580 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 14 games between High-A Bradenton and Triple-A Indy. With eligibility at both third base and shortstop, he's a worthwhile stash in fantasy leagues.

Wade Davis worked around a single allowed in a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's 10-8 win against the Mets, securing his 21st save.

It was a tidy outing for Davis, who threw eight of his 10 pitches for strikes. He blew his past two save opportunities so fantasy owners needed to see a dominant effort. It wasn't a perfect appearance, but he was pounding the strike zone and this is what you want to see. While he has managed just seven saves over his past 10 opportunities since May 11, he should still be viewed as one of the better closer options in the game.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

Parra has logged three consecutive multi-hit games while driving in seven of his season's 31 RBI. He has also scored a goal in four straight games, and six of the past seven outings. The red-hot month of June continues for the outfielder, as he is hitting .386 (22-for-57) with four doubles and 14 RBI in 16 games to raise his average from .275 to .304 since flipping the calendar from May to June.
Jun 21 - 1:36 AM

Nolan Arenado finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Wednesday's 10-8 victory against the Mets.

Arenado has enjoyed a visit from the Mets and their beleaguered pitching staff, swatting homers in consecutive games for the fourth time this season. He has logged multi-hit games in each of his past two outings, and four of the past six while driving in nine runs. The All-Star hot corner man is enjoying a hot streak, and he'll need to keep doing his part as the Colorado pitching staff has been horrible lately.
Jun 21 - 1:31 AM

Chad Bettis coughed up eight earned runs, nine hits and five walks over just 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Wednesday.

Bettis threw just 56 of his 97 pitches for strikes, including just 16 first-pitch strikes to the 27 batters he faced, for a game score of just 13. He has been horrible at home, posting a 0-0 record with an 8.75 ERA in seven starts at Coors Field vs. a 5-1 record and 2.70 ERA in eight starts away from home. Fortunately for his fantasy owners his next scheduled start will be Tuesday in San Francisco before working on the road against the Dodgers next Sunday.
Jun 21 - 1:27 AM

Dominic Smith went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and two runs scored in Wednesday's 10-8 road loss against the Rockies.

Smith could see some regular at-bats with Jay Bruce (hip) on the 10-day disabled list. He played outfield for Triple-A Las Vegas and his natural position is first base. His versatility and offensive upside will get him into the lineup on a regular basis until the Mets start to get back to health. Trades this summer could also potentially open up a job for the remainder of the season.
Jun 21 - 1:21 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera finished Wednesday's 10-8 loss in Colorado with a single, a double, a walk and two RBI across five at-bats.

Cabrera is working on a four-game multi-hit streak and he has driven in five runs during the outing. His batting average plummeted from .315 to .267 as a result of a 5-for-55 skid (.090) from May 29 to June 16. However, he is working his way back up to a good number and improving his trade stock again leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline.
