Jacoby Ellsbury was forced to leave Friday's game against the Red Sox in the first inning with an apparent injury.
Ellsbury delivered a solid weekend's worth of fantasy stats before departing, leading the game off with a walk and deftly swiping second and third base before scoring on a Brian McCann double. It was diving into third base though that he sustained the injury, which could be to his hip. Aaron Hicks replaced him in the Yankees' lineup. Look for an update on Ellsbury's status shortly.
Neil Walker is not in the Mets starting lineup against the Padres on Friday.
Walker has been swinging a hot bat as of late, but manager Terry Collins opted to give him a breather for Friday's series opener. The 30-year-old is hitting .276/.315/.543 with nine homers and 19 RBI through his first 27 games as a Met.
Michael Conforto is not in the Mets starting lineup for Friday's series opener against the Padres.
He'll get a breather against tough opposing left-hander Drew Pomeranz. Juan Lagares will start in his place and bat second for the Mets on Friday.
Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.
It's nothing more than a day of rest for Blackmon, who missed much of the month of April with a toe injury. Gerardo Parra will slide over to center field while Ryan Raburn gets the start for the Rockies against left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.
That is provided everything goes well with his final minor league rehab game with Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday. He has been on the shelf since straining his hamstring during the third game of the season.
Rich Hill will work in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
He had his start pushed back a day due to Friday's rain out. Jesse Hahn, Saturday's scheduled starter, will work in the nightcap.
Friday's scheduled contest between the Athletics and Orioles was postponed due to inclement weather.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Saturday. Friday's scheduled starters, Ubaldo Jimenez and Rich Hill, are expected to be pushed back a day. Make sure to get any and all O's and A's out of your daily fantasy lineups before lineups lock.
Rockies recalled C Dustin Garneau from Triple-A Albuquerque.
The 28-year-old appeared in three games with the Rockies earlier this season, going 4-for-10 (.400) with three doubles and an RBI. He'll share time behind the dish with Tony Wolters while Nick Hundley is sidelined.
