LHP Aroldis Chapman (hamstring) didn't pitch for a second straight game Thursday, when the Yankees beat the Mets, 7-5. Chapman, who was injured fielding the final out of the Yankees' 5-4 win over the Mets on Tuesday night, threw a bullpen session Thursday and should be ready to pitch again on Friday. The Yankees hope the couple days off help Chapman both physically and mentally after a three-game stretch, dating back to Aug. 11, in which he's recorded two saves and absorbed a blown save while giving up five runs on three hits and four walks over 3 1/3 innings. Chapman is 4-2 with a 3.89 ERA and 16 saves in 37 games this season.

2B Starlin Castro (right hamstring strain) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday night. Castro has been limited to just six games since June 26 due to a pair of hamstring injuries, the most recent of which he suffered July 21. He was placed on the disabled list two days later, retroactive to July 22. Castro will likely require several rehab games before the Yankees consider activating him. He is batting .307 with 12 homers and 45 RBIs in 79 games this season.

Holliday is batting .229 with 16 homers and 51 RBIs in 88 games this season.

RHP Jameson Taillon gave up four runs and seven hits over five innings, with three walks and seven strikeouts, missing a shot at three straight quality starts. Two of the runs he allowed, along with two of the walks, came in the fifth when it was raining. "The weather looked like it was starting to get a little challenging to navigate," Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. "It seemed like the more he stayed out there in the rain, the more his execution seemed to tail off some." Even without the rain, Hurdle said he would have pulled Taillon following the fifth.
Fri Aug 1804:032B Josh Harrison 3-5Josh Harrison2BPiratesFree Agent
2B Josh Harrison was 3-for-5. He hit his 13th homer, a two-run shot to left in the first. In the sixth, he left the bases loaded with a flyout to center. Harrison had been in a mini-slump, 8-for-39 in his previous 10 games.
Fri Aug 1804:03RHP Joaquin Benoit fell to 1-6Joaquín BenoitRPPiratesFree Agent
RHP Joaquin Benoit fell to 1-6. He gave up three runs on three hits and a walk in one-third of an inning, facing five batters. Manager Clint Hurdle said going to Benoit that inning and not pulling him for Daniel Hudson sooner was out of the question because George Kontos was not available.
Fri Aug 1804:03CF Andrew McCutchen 3-4 with double, walk and run scoredAndrew McCutchenRFPiratesFree Agent
CF Andrew McCutchen was 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored. He had been 2-for-10 over his previous three games.

Fri Aug 1804:03RHP Adam Wainwright lasted only three innings and being sent bac...Adam WainwrightSPCardinalsFree Agent
RHP Adam Wainwright lasted only three innings and is being sent back to St. Louis for evaluation. He dealt with elbow soreness in his previous start, which kept him from reaching 90 mph or striking out anyone. Wainwright again failed to hit 90 mph Thursday and didn't strike out a batter while allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk, but he extended his unbeaten streak to nine starts (5-0). "It's real disappointing because this time of year ... is usually when I go," Wainwright said. "In my whole career, this is when I've taken off and played some really good baseball. So, it's hard for me to look my guys in the face and tell them that I'm sorry and it wasn't as good as it needed to be."

RHP Ryan Madson was placed on the disabled list with a sore finger. Madson hadn't allowed a run since coming from the A's on July 16. "It turned out to be a little more than a blister," Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. "There was soreness in his index finger in his throwing hand. It's better that it happened now rather than later."

RF Bryce Harper is on the West Coast trip but certainly not in a playing capacity. Harper is out for an indefinite time period with a knee injury. "He's not cleared to do much but he is part of this team," manager Dusty Baker said. "It's not like football where you shelf some guy until he is ready to play." Harper contributed recently to Howie Kendrick being thrust into a starting role in right field. Harper is sharing knowledge with Kendrick about the various angles and nuances of playing that spot.
