4/28/2017 Eric Thames, Mil, 1B
Thames is back in the starting lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night after leaving Wednesday's game with left hamstring tightness.

Analysis: Thames, who leads the majors with 11 homers, appeared to be favoring his left hamstring as he stretched before the Cincinnati Reds batted in the eighth inning on Wednesday. Manager Craig Counsell talked with him near first base before the two walked off the field. Thames, who returned to the majors this season after playing in South Korea for three years, said he first felt the tug on his left hamstring about a week ago, but played through the discomfort.
4/28/2017 Masahiro Tanaka, NYY, P
Tanaka improved to 3-1, allowing three hits in a complete-game shutout, as the New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-0 on Thursday. Tanaka struck out three, ending the game with a 4.20 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Tanaka (3-1) threw only 97 pitches for his fifth career complete game - his first since Aug. 15, 2015, which was also the last for New York.
4/28/2017 Nelson Cruz, Sea, RF
Cruz was scratched from Friday's lineup because of a hamstring issue.

Analysis: Graveman made his first start since April 14, having recovered from a strained right shoulder. He settled in nicely after allowing two runs in the first inning.

4/28/2017 Ricky Nolasco, LAA, P
Ricky Nolasco improved to 2-2, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in 5.2 innings, as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Thursday. Nolasco struck out four, ending the game with a 4.13 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Nolasco had eight days between starts to work on mechanical issues and it paid off. ''They were much-needed (days off) to get back on schedule," he said. ''Just cleaning up some things on the front leg with my leg and overall mechanics. Everything felt good.'' Nolasco has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his past four starts, though he has yet to last past the sixth inning through five outings.
4/28/2017 José Álvarez, LAA, P
