LEADING OFF: Yanks put Andújar on IL, Paddack vs Kershaw

By The Associated Press

A look at what's happening around the majors today:

BRONX BOO-BOOS

No sooner do the injury-ravaged Yankees finally get a player back than two more go down. On the same day New York activated center fielder Aaron Hicks for the first time this season, third baseman Miguel Andújar and right-hander Jonathan Loaisiga were placed on the 10-day injured list. The moves Monday left the Yankees with 13 players on the IL. They've put 17 on the list for 18 total stints this year — Andújar now twice because of a small labrum tear in his right shoulder. Loaisiga, the rotation replacement for injured James Paxton, has a strained rotator cuff and will be shut down for four weeks. Following a rainout Monday, J.A. Happ (2-3, 4.36) leads New York against Baltimore.

TEXAS TWO-STEP

Padres rookie and cowboy-hat enthusiast Chris Paddack takes on another notable Texan in a matchup with Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw. Paddack (3-1, 1.55) has become a fan favorite in San Diego for his Western get-ups, wearing cowboy hats and boots to the stadium on game day. He's coming off his best start yet, striking out 11 over 7 2/3 innings in a 4-0 win over Jacob deGrom and the Mets. Los Angeles has won every game started by Kershaw (2-0, 3.31) this season.

QUICK WORK

Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks has been on a most efficient roll, something he'll try to continue against Cincinnati. He delivered an 81-pitch shutout against St. Louis on May 3, then followed with eight solid innings against Miami, allowing an unearned run while throwing 96 pitches. The Reds will counter with righty Tanner Roark (3-1, 3.27).

PETEY ON HOLD

Dustin Pedroia's injury rehab assignment has been put on hold following a setback with his lingering left knee injury. The Red Sox second baseman was scratched from a game with Double-A Portland on Saturday, and his return from the rehab assignment was announced Monday. Boston hasn't announced a next move for the 35-year-old.
