One thing Red Sox fans will love about Chris Sale: how he pitches against the Yankees. Sale's ERA vs. the Bronx Bombers is the lowest of any pitcher in MLB history.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Chris Sale has gotten off to a strong start in Boston. Only two pitchers have racked up more strikeouts in their first four games with a team: Hall of Famers Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez.

When Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound on Thursday for the 80th time as a Yankee, he will be going for his 42nd career win. That would be the third-most of any Yankee pitcher whose career began in 1945 or later over his first 80 games.

A bad day for the Mets gets worse as Kurt Suzuki hammers his first home run of 2017, a three-run shot that gives the Braves a 6-2 lead and knocks Matt Harvey from the game in the fifth inning. The Mets are in danger of falling to 4-10 at home.

Oh boy. Yoenis Cespedes lines a double in the gap, but pulls up lame into second base and limps very slowly off the field with some help. Doesn't look good. He had recently missed a few games with a hamstring injury. This is on the heels of Noah Syndergaard missing his start today with a dead arm.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, RF Shin-Soo Choo became the first player in Rangers history with a triple and home run in the same inning in Texas' 14-3 blowout of the Twins on Wednesday. Choo achieved the feat in the Rangers' eight-run 8th inning. (Photo: Choo Peter Llewellyn/USA TODAY Sports)

Yoenis Cespedes appears to have re-injured himself running out a double. Limping heavily as he walks off the field.

The Red Sox's interest in Chase d'Arnaud likely stems from fact that he can play six positions (2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF) and bats right-handed. He's more versatile than Steve Selsky, and as long as Pablo Sandoval is on the DL and Josh Rutledge/Marco Hernandez are playing more often, Red Sox need versatility on the bench.

Red Sox have claimed INF/OF Chase d'Arnaud off waivers from the Atlanta Braves. To make room on the 40-man roster, reliever Carson Smith has been transferred to the 60-day DL.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Chris Sale led the American League with 274 strikeouts in 2015, but he revamped his approach in 2016 -- lowering his strikeout total in the process. This season, he seems to be in pre-2016 form: He has three games this season with 10 strikeouts. He had four such games in 32 starts last season, his first not coming until Aug. 3.

SS Jose Iglesias is in the Tigers' starting lineup Thursday vs. the Mariners. Iglesias was reinstated from the seven-day concussion DL prior to Thursday's game. LHP Kyle Ryan was optioned to Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.

Braves 2B Brandon Phillips (groin) isn't in Atlanta's starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Mets. Jace Peterson will start at second base.

Bryce Harper's had hot starts before, but something seems different this year. Is this his best season yet? es.pn/2pqd5a2

3B Kyle Seager is back in the Mariners' starting lineup Thursday vs. the Tigers after not starting the last four games with a sore right hip.

Great nugget from ESPN Stats & Info this morning: Of pitchers with at least seven career starts against the Yankees, Boston's Chris Sale has the lowest career ERA (1.25). Riffing off of that, of lefties with at least seven starts vs. New York, here are the top three, from baseball-reference.com and including some relief innings, which the previous stat does not: 1. Sale (1.17), 2. Harry Coveleski (1.57), 3. Babe Ruth (2.21). Ruth was 17-5 against the Yankees before he joined them in time for the 1920 season.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Aaron Judge opened the scoring against Rick Porcello and the Red Sox with a 391-foot blast. Long home runs haven't been out of the ordinary for Judge since he got called up last summer.
