Rangers' Tolleson was unavailable Friday after back-to-back saves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:39 am ET) Rangers reliever Ross Ohlendorf recorded his first career save Friday against the Yankees after reliever Shawn Tolleson picked up saves Wednesday and Thursday against the Red Sox. Tolleson needed 38 pitches to get through his two save chances against Boston, which is why he was unavailable Friday.

"More than anything else, Tolleson was down because he had pitched back-to-back games and we didn't want to use him a third game," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com.

Tolleson and Ohlendorf have closed out games for the Rangers since Neftali Feliz was removed as closer following his third blown save last Saturday against the Indians.


Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall sees average slump to .215


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:34 am ET) Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall's offensive struggles continued Friday against the Reds, as he went 0 for 5 with one strikeout during a 7-3 win. Chisenhall is now hitless in his last four games (11 at-bats) and has at least one strikeout in eight of his last 10 games.

Chisenhall has been in a slump for a few weeks. He is batting .132 (5 for 38) in his last 11 games (eight starts), which has dropped his season average from .250 to .215.


X-rays negative on Red Sox LF Hanley Ramirez's left hand


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:20 am ET) X-rays came back negative on Red Sox left fielder Hanley Ramirez's left hand after he left the game Friday in the top of the sixth inning due to soreness, per MLB.com. Ramirez was hit in the hand by a pitch in the fourth inning.

"We'll check on him when he comes in [Saturday], but after the hit by pitch, he had a difficult time gripping the bat and we had to get him out of there," Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Friday's 12-5 loss to the Angels.

The injuries are piling up for Ramirez, who has struggled since suffering a left shoulder sprain May 4. Since hurting his shoulder, Ramirez has a .212/.241/.269/.510 slash line in his last 13 games. Prior to getting hurt, he had a .283/.340/.609/.949 slash line in 25 games.

Prior to his three-hit game Friday, Morales had been hitting .154 with no home runs over his last four games.

Porcello has now struck out 10 batters over the past two games. He now has an ERA of 5.07 this season. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Twins.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(1:18 am ET) Angels pitcher Garrett Richards allowed five earned runs during Friday night's 12-5 win over the Red Sox.

The five runs are the most Richards has allowed in a game this year. However, the win puts him at 4-2 for the season. He now holds a 2.98 ERA.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
