Yoenis Cespedes said after Friday's game that his left ankle is fine.
Cespedes, who returned from a mild left wrist sprain on Friday, turned his left ankle on the first base bag when he was picked off in the seventh inning. He was on the ground for a moment in obvious pain before walking off the field with a trainer, but he went back out to play his position in the bottom of the inning and managed to finish the game. "It bothered me a little once I twisted it at first base, but I'm OK," Cespedes said through an interpreter.
Steven Matz downplayed any issue with his elbow after Friday's start against the Braves.
Matz, who has been dealing with some elbow tightness of late, held the Braves scoreless over the first four innings Friday before giving up six runs on eight hits in the fifth while showing a dip in velocity. Cameras showed him rubbing his elbow in the dugout before going out for the inning, but the young southpaw said his elbow wasn't a factor in his unraveling. "Not really. No. It's been tight, but it's fine," said Matz. "I was able to throw the ball fine the first four innings." Matz had just two swinging strikes in his 78 pitches on Friday.
Brewers activated INF Hernan Perez from the paternity leave list.
The move was made on Friday. Perez had been away from the team since Tuesday.
Travis Shaw (shin) went 1-for-4 with a single in his return to the lineup Friday against the Rangers.
Shaw was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Thursday after leaving Wednesday's game with a right shin contusion. He should be good to go moving forward.
Ezequiel Carrera (Achillies) went 1-for-5 with a single and a strikeout in his return to the lineup Friday versus the White Sox.
Carrera sat out Wednesday's game because of a sore Achilles, but he was back in the leadoff spot Friday night. He should continue to see plenty of playing time with Jose Bautista (toe) sidelined.
Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zack Godley to Triple-A Reno.
The Diamondbacks intend to add a fresh arm to their bullpen on Saturday. Godley allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over an inning of work on Friday and owns a 4.35 ERA in five appearances with Arizona this season.
Jake Peavy improved to 4-6 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Phillies.
Since falling to 1-5 with an 8.21 ERA on May 20, Peavy is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six starts. It's not enough to make him a quality pickup in mixed leagues again, but the Giants will certainly take it.
Zach Eflin pitched six innings and allowed just an unearned run Friday in a no-decision against the Giants.
Eflin left with a 2-1 lead, but it vanished almost immediately in the seventh. Still, this was a second straight nice outing for him after he gave up eight earned runs in 2 2/3 innings in his major league debut 10 days ago. He remains a weak bet outside of deep NL-only leagues, but he won't embarrass himself.
