Mariners optioned OF Nori Aoki to Triple-A Tacoma.

Jun 24 - 6:42 PM

Angels activated RHP Nick Tropeano from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The move comes after Tropeano allowed three runs over five innings and struck out seven Thursday in his first minor league rehab start with High-A Inland Empire. He's back to full health from his recent bout with shoulder tightness, but the Angels apparently don't think he's one of their best five starters at the moment. That's crazy, of course, and Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register hears that Tropeano isn't happy. While the demotion doesn't appear to be justified, it probably won't be long before he returns to the majors if he can prove his health and effectiveness.
Jun 24 - 6:31 PM

Yunel Escobar (knee) is not in Friday's lineup against the Athletics.

Escobar exited Thursday's game with a knee issue and apparently isn't back to 100 percent yet. Jefry Marte will start at third base while Shane Robinson will play left field.
Jun 24 - 6:29 PM

Buster Posey is not in Friday's lineup against the Phillies.

It's just a normal day of rest. Trevor Brown will start behind the plate and catch Jake Peavy.
Jun 24 - 6:23 PM

Andrew Cashner (neck) threw a side session Friday afternoon.

Cashner, who is making his way back from a neck strain, threw 25 pitches before taking a break and returning for a few more pitches. The next step is expected to be a minor league rehab start. He's tentatively scheduled to pitch with High-A Lake Elsinore on June 28.
Jun 24 - 6:20 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session on Thursday.

Ross mixed in some sliders during the session and will likely throw again on the side before progressing to batting practice. He's making progress, but his return isn't expected until after the All-Star break.
Jun 24 - 6:13 PM
Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) is out of the Padres' lineup again Friday versus the Reds.

Jay was hit by a pitch last Sunday and is still dealing with some swelling. He will see a hand specialist upon returning to San Diego next week and the Padres haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list.
Jun 24 - 6:09 PM

Miguel Sano (hamstring) will play third base on Friday and Saturday for Triple-A Rochester in his first two rehab games.

He'll then serve as a designated hitter on Sunday. That could be all the rehab contests Sano needs, and it's certainly notable that the Twins don't appear to intend to play him in the outfield at all at Rochester. He could handle third base for the Twins if Trevor Plouffe (groin) winds up needing a disabled list stint, and we can't rule out the possibility that the Twins are done with Sano in the outfield. There's been talk of sending Byung-ho Park to the minors, so Sano could wind up in the designated hitter spot.
