Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that Yunel Escobar (knee) is expected to play Saturday.
Escobar tweaked his knee during Thursday's game and will get a day of rest on Friday. However, it's not expected to be a lingering issue. Consider him day-to-day.
Franklin Morales (shoulder) will continue his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo.
Morales threw two scoreless innings with High-A Dunedin and will now test himself against advanced competition. The southpaw has been on the disabled list since the first week of the season due to shoulder fatigue.
Brett Cecil (lat) will continue his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo.
Cecil, who is making his way back from a torn lat muscle, allowed one run in two innings with four strikeouts over two appearances with High-A Dunedin. The southpaw will likely make another couple of appearances before rejoining the Blue Jays.
Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said that prospect outfielder Andrew Benintendi wasn't a consideration to be called up Friday.
Chris Young was placed on the disabled list Friday and the Red Sox called up Bryce Brentz instead. Dombrowski said that they are pleased with Benintendi's defense and baserunning and that it could play in the majors right now, but that he isn't quite ready offensively. The 21-year-old is batting .246/.297/.397 over 32 games since his promotion to Double-A Portland last month, but he has swung the bat much better recently. It might not be long before he forces the issue.
Mariners transferred RHP Tony Zych from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Zych suffered another setback with his right rotator cuff earlier this month and doesn't appear to close to returning to the Mariners' bullpen.
Trevor May (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Rochester.
May is scheduled to throw an inning on Sunday. The Twins might want to see him pitch on back-to-back days before activating him. The 26-year-old has been sidelined for about two weeks with back spasms.
Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Donn Roach from Triple-A Tacoma.
Roach has posted a 4.26 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9 over 14 starts this year in Triple-A. The 26-year-old will provide some long relief help.
Mariners placed RHP Adrian Sampson on the 15-day disabled list with a right flexor bundle strain.
Sampson was set to start Thursday against the Tigers, but he had to leave after a couple of warm-up pitches due to what was termed as right elbow discomfort. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined.
