Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner is hopeful he can swing a bat on Thursday. On Wednesday, Gardner took a fastball off his right elbow. Even with a pad on the elbow, Gardner needed an X-ray on the elbow. It was negative. Gardner sounded more optimistic that he could be in the lineup sooner that manager Joe Girardi seemed to think.

Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner had an X-ray on his elbow. Although it was negative, Yankees manager Joe Girardi isn't sure he will be able to use Gardner the next couple of days. Gardner was hit on the elbow by a fastball.

Despite tallying seven hits and four walks, the Orioles got shut out by the Yankees 7-0. The loss, in which Baltimore grounded into three inning-ending double plays and stranded eight runners, drops the Birds into a first-place tie with Boston.

The Yankees' CC Sabathia's troubles with alcohol came fully to light on the last weekend of 2015 season here in Baltimore. So it might feel a little extra special for Sabathia that his best performance of the 2016 has occurred at Camden Yards. Sabthia pitched seven scoreless innings and left with a 7-0 lead in the eighth on Wednesday. Sabathia's ERA dropped from 5.06 to 3.81. He has begun looking more comfortable as he has reconciled with his reduced velocity and more reliance on his change-up.

Asked about Justin Upton's second-inning baserunning gaffe and the team's struggles as a whole in that area this season, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus responded: "This game is played by humans, not by robots." Ausmus said that third-base coach Dave Clark talked to Upton after the play. "Humans make mistakes and that was a mistake."

On a cold night, Travis Shaw getting hit by a 93 MPH Carlos Rodon fastball on an unprotected right arm does more than sting, it's cause for concern for a Red Sox roster down to two bench players with Hanley Ramirez scratched for "flu-like symptoms."

One key moment from tonight's 4-0 shutout loss to the Cleveland Indians was a fourth-inning baserunning miscue by Tigers OF Justin Upton, who failed to go home from third with James McCann grounding into double play. Upton admitted his mistake after the game and said it cost the club a run. "I just got caught being too cautious...you can't be too cautious in that situation."

CC Sabathia has pitched excellent tonight. With the last place Yankees trying to break their six-game losing streak, Sabathia has thrown six scoreless innings as the Yankees lead 3-0 in the seventh against the Orioles.
