Jayson Werth is back in the Nationals' lineup Saturday against the Brewers.
Werth got the day off Friday, but he's back in left field on Saturday. He's batting second against right-hander Matt Garza. Ben Revere will start in center field while Michael Taylor will be on the bench.
The Twins are hopeful that Trevor Plouffe (groin) will play Sunday.
Plouffe suffered a mild right groin strain on Thursday, but he went through baseball activities Saturday and felt good. At the very least, it appears likely he'll avoid a stint on the disabled list.
Justin Morneau (elbow) took batting practice on the field Saturday.
It was his first time doing so since offseason surgery to repair a flexor injury in his left elbow. Morneau signed a deal with the White Sox earlier this month and appears on track to help the major league roster during the second half.
Willson Contreras will start in left field Saturday against the Marlins.
Anthony Rizzo and Miguel Montero are back in action on Saturday, but the Cubs want to keep the hot-hitting Contreras in the lineup. The 24-year-old is batting .412 (7-for-17) with three homers and eight RBI over seven games since his promotion from Triple-A. There was a question about how much playing time he would get, but the Cubs have shown a willingness to test his versatility, which only enhances his fantasy appeal at the moment. Contreras hasn't played in the outfield since 2013 with Class A Kane County.
Ben Zobrist is not in Saturday's lineup against the Marlins.
Zobrist suffered a bruised left ankle when he was hit by a pitch on Friday. Consider him day-to-day. Javy Baez will start at second base and bat fifth against Paul Clemens.
Miguel Montero (knee) returned to the Cubs' lineup Saturday versus the Marlins.
Montero has been dealing with some soreness in his right knee since a play at home plate on Wednesday, but he's feeling good enough to catch John Lackey on Saturday. The hot-hitting Willson Contreras is starting in left field.
Anthony Rizzo (back) is in the Cubs' lineup Saturday versus the Marlins.
Rizzo sat out back-to-back games due to back stiffness. It has been a lingering issue, but hopefully the time off did him some good.
Marcell Ozuna is not in Saturday's lineup versus the Cubs.
He'll take a seat against right-hander John Lackey. Ichiro Suzuki will make the start in center field and bat leadoff as he continues his chase toward 3,000 MLB hits. He's currently 17 away.
