Jonathan Schoop 2B/3B BAL 6 Hrs

Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Orioles defeated the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Schoop's second homer of the season was a solo shot off of Drew Hutchison in the fifth inning. The 22-year-old has looked overmatched in the early going, but his two-hit game on Wednesday and his homer on Thursday could be signs that he's starting to figure it out.

Colby Rasmus CF TOR 6 Hrs

Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

Rasmus took Bud Norris deep in the fourth inning for his fourth home run of the season. He remains below the Mendoza line at .195. The 27-year-old finally pieced it together last season, but has yet to repeat it in 2014. Manager John Gibbons batted him eighth in Thursday's lineup and could remain there if he continues to slump.

Drew Hutchison SP TOR 6 Hrs

Drew Hutchison pitched well in Thursday's start against the Orioles, but earned the no-decision despite allowing only two runs over six innings.

Hutchison exited the game in line for the win, but the Jays' bullpen surrendered nine runs total in the seventh and eighth innings, leaving the right-hander with the no-decision. Hutchison allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out nine. He's looked sharp in his last two starts, having struck out 18 and walked one in 11 1/3 innings. Hutchison will face the meager Royals offense in his next outing.

Bud Norris SP BAL 6 Hrs

Bud Norris earned his first win of the season in Thursday's start against the Blue Jays, allowing three runs over four innings.

Norris allowed five hits, walked one, and struck out four in the effort. He made two big mistakes, allowing a solo home run to Dionver Navarro in the second inning and a two-run blast to Colby Rasmus in the fourth. He's sitting on a 4.44 ERA after four starters. Norris will face the Pirates in his next start.

David Lough LF/RF BAL 6 Hrs

David Lough collected three hits in four at-bats, walked, and stole two bases as the Orioles topped the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Lough hadn't done much anything at the dish, but was a big factor in the Orioles' 11-run outburst against the Blue Jays. Acquired in the off-season in a trade with the Royals, Lough also crossed home plate three times and stole his third and fourth bases on the season.

Brendan Ryan SS NYY 7 Hrs

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Thursday that Brendan Ryan (back, hamstring) is about a week away from being activated.

Ryan has been playing in extended spring training games for a week, though he had a mini-setback earlier this week when his hamstring tightened up on him. However, it sounds like he's back on track and will rejoin the Yankees in early May.

Matt Albers RP HOU 8 Hrs

Astros manager Bo Porter said that Matt Albers (shoulder) remains unavailable for Thursday's game.

"Albers is one guy that's dealing with some shoulder stiffness," Porter said Thursday. "He's been down the last couple days. He's down again today. We'll let the training staff continue to evaluate, and we'll go day to day with his situation." While he reiterated that the team doesn't think Albers' injury is serious, the skipper wouldn't rule out a DL stint if the reliever doesn't get better in a hurry. "The longer we go, that risk can increase," Porter said. "This is the third day, so I'm not going to jump the gun yet. We'll see how he responds to treatment and hopefully things will work themselves out."

Chase Headley 3B SD 9 Hrs

Chase Headley left Thursday's game against the Nationals with a right calf strain.

It's the same injury he dealt with for nearly a month during spring training. The severity of the strain isn't known yet, but it sure seems like something that will probably send him to the disabled list. Alexi Amarista took over at third base for Headley on Thursday.

Rafael Furcal SS MIA 9 Hrs

Rafael Furcal (hamstring) isn't expected to be activated from the disabled list until May 6.

A report on Wednesday indicated that Furcal could return sometime next week, but the Marlins have decided it would be best if the infielder used all of his allotted 20 rehab days. Furcal has just four singles in his first 26 rehab at-bats.

Chase Headley 3B SD 9 Hrs

Chase Headley left Thursday's game against the Nationals in the second inning with a possible knee injury.

Headley appeared to tweak his knee as he came out of the box during a flyout in the top of the second inning, and he didn't take the field for the bottom of the frame. The Padres should provide an update on the third baseman's status before long.
