Oswaldo Arcia is expected to be in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
The Rays are going with Jaff Decker, Taylor Motter, and Corey Dickerson in their outfield and Brad Miller out of the DH spot in the first game. Arcia hasn't played since June 14, so the Rays didn't want him to play both games of the doubleheader. The 25-year-old should split time between right field and the DH spot with his new team.
Charlie Furbush (shoulder) has resumed throwing bullpen sessions.
Furbush hasn't pitched in a major league game since July 2015 due to shoulder issues, but he's finally making some progress. It's unclear when he'll go out on a minor league rehab assignment, but he'll likely a bunch of appearances before being a legitimate consideration to rejoin the Mariners.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Friday that Felix Hernandez (calf) continues to show improvement.
"He's feeling good," said Servais. "He's picking up his throwing routine, getting stretched out. I think he's trying to get out to 120 feet today. I heard him arguing with [trainer Rick] Griffin in there about wanting to do a little bit more, so you know he's progressing really nicely. We can't have him soon enough." King Felix has been sidelined since May 27 with a right calf strain, but he's likely on track to return right after the All-Star break.
Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Reds.
Jay hasn't played since he was hit in the wrist area with a pitch last Sunday and a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility. Travis Jankowski will start in center field again and bat leadoff Saturday.
Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets are expected to officially sign Jose Reyes on Saturday afternoon.
Multiple reporters are saying the same, as a reunion is basically seen as a foregone conclusion at this point. Reyes won't officially become a free agent until 1 p.m. ET, but Mets manager Terry Collins was already talking Friday about how the team plans to use him. The Mets would only be responsible for paying the veteran infielder a prorated portion of the major league minimum. Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week after completing a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife.
Adrian Sampson will require season-ending surgery to reattach the flexor bundle in his right elbow.
Sampson suffered the injury during warmup pitches before what was supposed to be his second major league start on Thursday. The surgery won't require as lengthy as a rehab process as Tommy John surgery, which he previously had in high school, but he won't be an option for the Mariners again until 2017.
Yankees designated 1B Ike Davis for assignment.
The move clears a spot for Mark Teixeira's return from the disabled list. Davis went 3-for-14 (.214) with an RBI during his brief stint with the Yankees. He told reporters that he'll consider staying with the organization if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Wade Miley (shoulder) tossed four perfect innings Friday in a minor league rehab start with Low-A Everett.
Miley struck out seven batters and got stretched out to 55 pitches. He reported no issues with his shoulder. "Pain free. I'm ready to rock and roll," said Miley. "I felt like I probably could have pitched last week, but they wanted to be smart about it. So I took some time off and hopefully it'll pay off in the long run." The southpaw should make his return Wednesday against the Pirates.
