Jabari Blash Headshot

Blash is not in the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Added 5:45 pm (EST)
Blash will head to the bench after starting in each of the last three games since being recalled from El Paso on Tuesday. Allen Cordoba will take over in left field, though Blash should continue to see the bulk of starts with Travis Jankowski (foot) on the disabled list.
Austin Hedges Headshot

Hedges is out of the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Added 5:44 pm (EST)
Hedges has shown tremendous power at the plate lately. Over the last seven games he's slugged four home runs and notched nine RBI across 22 at-bats. He'll get the night off as the Padres opt to start Luis Torrens at catcher.
Chris Iannetta Headshot

Iannetta is not in Thursday's lineup against the Padres.

Added 5:38 pm (EST)
Over the last seven days, Iannetta has started just three of Arizona's seven games. In that time he's gone 3-for-13 (.231). Chris Herrmann will start behind the dish for Thursday's game while Iannetta heads to the bench.
Brandon Drury Headshot

Drury (knee) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres.

Added 5:33 pm (EST)
Drury had to exit Wednesday's game with a jammed knee and will sit out Thursday night. The team has yet to indicate that Drury's injury is severe, so consider him day-to-day for now. With Drury out Thursday, Chris Owings will move over to second base while Nick Ahmed fills in at shortstop.
Ronald Torreyes Headshot

Torreyes will likely see a significant decline of playing time when Didi Gregorius (shoulder) returns from the disabled list Friday against the Orioles.

Added 5:13 pm (EST)
Torreyes had assumed the starting shortstop role while Gregorius was on the DL. But now that he is coming back, as the Bergen Record's Pete Caldera reports, it is almost certain the 24-year-old will return to a bench role, which he was slated to fulfill before Gregorius suffered an injury during the World Baseball Classic. Through 62 at-bats this season, Torreyes has impressed, as he's hit .290 with 13 RBI and one home run.
Stephen Vogt Headshot

Vogt is not in the lineup Thursday against the Angels.

Added 5:00 pm (EST)
After catching 19 innings over the last two days, Vogt will get a breather as Josh Phegley takes over behind the dish. The 32-year-old isn't off to the strongest start offensively, slashing just .222/.246/.352 with one homer and three RBI through 54 at-bats.
Didi Gregorius Headshot

Gregorius (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record reports.

Added 4:54 pm (EST)
Gregorius opened the season on the disabled list after suffering a shoulder injury in the World Baseball Classic. Upon his activation, look for him to take over as the Yankees' starting shortstop. Gregorius has played five games during his rehab assignment at High-A Tampa, during which he's gone 8-for-18 (.444) with a home run and a double.
Brock Holt Headshot

Holt (vertigo) is scheduled to begin his minor-league rehab assignment Friday or Saturday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Added 4:53 pm (EST)
With Holt's vertigo symptoms starting to clear, the 28-year-old was seen taking grounders during Thursday's pregame. If all goes well during his rehab assignment, Holt should be ready to rejoin the Red Sox shortly, though he still remains without a timetable for return. He'll provide some much needed depth around the Red Sox's infield upon his activation.
Gary Sánchez Headshot

Sanchez (biceps) will begin his rehab assignment Monday, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record reports.

Added 4:42 pm (EST)
Sanchez opened the season by playing just five games before being placed on the disabled list with a bicep strain. Over that brief span he went 3-for-20 (.150). To this point he's gradually increased his level of activity and recently began participating in batting practice. Although the team has yet to provide a specific timeframe for his return, it would seem that an early-May activation from the DL would be obtainable if his upcoming rehab assignment goes smoothly.
Kendall Graveman Headshot

Graveman (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday.

Added 4:34 pm (EST)
As expected, Graveman was activated from the disabled list in time to make his scheduled start against the Angels on Thursday. He currently holds a 2.00 ERA with 12 strikeouts through 18 innings (three starts).
