According to Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago, Jeff Samardzija plans on dropping the appeal of his suspension.

Samardzija, among many others, was suspended for his role in an April 23 bench-clearing fracas with the Royals. The White Sox have not yet announced what they would do with their rotation if Samardzija dropped the suspension.

May 5 - 8:19 PM

Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

McGehee is getting Tuesday and possibly Wednesday off, as he's admitted to pressing at the plate. Fans have started to boo the third baseman, who is hitting just .181/.234/.264. A few days off could help clear his head.
May 5 - 8:03 PM

Cubs recalled LHP James Russell from Triple-A Iowa.

The team signed Russell to a minor league contract on April 8. He'll provide them with some necessary, proven bullpen depth. Last season, he posted a 2.97 ERA and a 42/20 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings between the Cubs and the Braves.
May 5 - 7:55 PM

Cubs designated RHP Blake Parker for assignment.

Parker's being DFA'ed to make room for James Russell. The 29-year-old Parker posted a 5.14 ERA and 24/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings last season. He has a chance to pass through waivers.
May 5 - 7:52 PM

Tuesday's contest between the Rockies and Diamondbacks has been postponed due to rain.

This is the second game in a row that's been washed out in the series. The two teams will attempt to make up the contest on Wednesday as part of a double-header, with the first game scheduled for 3:10 ET and the second to follow 20-30 minutes after its conclusion.
May 5 - 7:49 PM

Dodgers optioned 1B Andy Wilkins to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers acquired Wilkins from the Blue Jays for cash considerations on May 3. With Triple-A Buffalo, he was hitting just .264/.353/.319. He's not fantasy relevant.
May 5 - 7:38 PM

Dodgers sent RHP Scott Baker outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Dodgers designated Baker for assignment on May 3. In 11 innings, he had posted a 5.73 ERA. The veteran right-hander will continue to provide the Dodgers with pitching depth and it's possible he'll see major league time later in the season.
May 5 - 7:34 PM

Tom Wilhelmsen (elbow) is most likely going to throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

Bob Dutton, of the Tacoma News Tribune, wrote that a Wilhelmsen simulated game for Wednesday was the "tentative plan." The right-hander has been on the shelf since April 10 with a hyperextended right elbow, but he threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Sunday and reported that it went well. He appears on track for a return in the middle of May.
