Brett Gardner scores four times and swiped two bases in Thursday's win over the Red Sox without getting a hit in four at-bats. He did walk three times, though.
Gardner has had his struggles of late as he has just three hits and three walks over his last 21 at-bats and is now batting .241 on the season. The two stolen bases on Thursday were his first since the sixth game of the season and he has only four on the season, so if he is not stealing bases or getting hits on at least a semi-regular basis than you may want to consider trying to find someone else who is.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Ravens announce extension for cornerback Jimmy Smith.
The deal is said to give him an average of just under $10 million per year. Smith was heading into the final year of his rookie contract – a reported $6.9 million option that the team picked up before last season. Considering his level of play and contributions on defense, it would have been quite the bargain but probably would have left a bad taste in the cornerback's mouth. He should be all smiles though heading into camp now with a new deal. Analysis: Howard Bender
Mirza Teletovic is listed as probable for Wednesday.
Teletovic was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolus, meaning he had blood clots in his lungs. He hasn't played since January 22nd, but he looks like he will be on the court for Wednesday's game. It would be surprising to see him play a full workload of minutes seeing as its been three months since he's last played. Regardless, his return would be a nice emotional boost to his team.
