Josh Hamilton was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers due to a sore left knee.
The severity of the injury remains unclear at the moment. Expect the Angels to provide an update on his status after the game, though it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure.
Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.
He will draw the start on Saturday against the White Sox. The 25-year-old southpaw sports a 3.43 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 73/40 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings at Rochester this season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Twins optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Double-A New Britain.
The 21-year-old was only with the Twins as emergency infield depth and didn't get an at-bat during his brief stay. Prior to his promotion, he was hitting .291/.364/.415 with six homers, 45 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 94 games at High-A Fort Myers.
Braves optioned INF Tyler Pastornicky to Triple-A Gwinnett.
No word yet on the corresponding roster move from the Braves. Pastornicky will continue to function as organizational infield depth and will be back the next time an injury strikes.
Jerome Williams tossed six innings of one-run ball in a 4-1 win over the Athletics on Friday.
Well, we weren't expecting that. Making his Rangers' debut, Williams held the A's to five hits and no walks while striking out five. The only run scored on an RBI single by Yoenis Cespedes in his final inning of work. Williams has likely earned another opportunity, but we're not expecting fantasy relevancy moving forward.
Jason Hammel gave up four runs (three earned) over 5 2/3 innings in Friday's loss to the Rangers.
Hammel gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out three. He has lost each of his first three starts with the A's and owns a 7.10 ERA and 8/7 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings. The returns haven't been good so far, but he'll attempt to turn things around next week against the Astros.
Neftali Feliz notched his first save since 2011 in Friday's win over the Athletics.
Back in the closer role after the Joakim Soria trade, Feliz worked around a hit and a walk to deliver a scoreless ninth inning. The 26-year-old doesn't have the same raw stuff he had prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, so we're a bit skeptical about his ability to keep the job, but the Rangers don't have much to lose at this point. Pick him up in all formats.
Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored Friday against the Athletics.
Andrus entered Friday's action with a lousy .232/.259/.293 batting line this month. The 25-year-old has salvaged some of his value with 20 stolen bases and 51 runs scored, but he remains a major disappointment in fantasy leagues. Of course, a poor supporting cast hasn't helped his cause.
