Erick Aybar (hamstring) is not in the Angels' lineup Friday.
Aybar tweaked his left hamstring during Thursday's contest. He's not expected to require a stint on the disabled list, but he could need a few days off. Taylor Featherston is at shortstop in his place.
Joel Peralta (neck) expects to throw off a mound at some point over the weekend.
Peralta has been playing catch for over a week and evidently has felt fine. The reliever is dealing with a strained neck.
Tuffy Gosewisch revealed Friday that he likely has an ACL tear in his left knee.
It sounds like he'll receive at least one more opinion before making a decision on surgery, but it appears his season is likely over. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has taken Gosewisch's spot on the roster and should serve as the starting catcher indefinitely.
Matt Holliday is sitting out on Friday due to the flu and a fever.
It's unclear whether he'll be available off the bench. Holliday should be ready to return to action in a day or two. Randal Grichuk is in left field Friday.
Avisail Garcia (knee) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Friday.
Garcia hasn't played since aggravating his right knee injury during Monday's game. He is progressing, though, as he did some running and will hit and take flyballs during batting practice before the game. It sounds like he could be back in the lineup at some point over the weekend. J.B. Shuck is in right field Friday.
Brad Peacock (intercostal) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Friday.
It was the first time he's thrown off a mound since going on the disabled list in mid-April with a left intercostal strain. There's no timetable for Peacock's return, but it will be a while since he'll need a rehab assignment first and is just now throwing from the bump again.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Matt Wieters (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list on June 5.
He's eligible to be activated on June 4, but it appears the O's will have Wieters join them in Cleveland rather than a day earlier in Houston. Showalter added that the catcher will have no physical restrictions when he returns, so it sounds like fantasy owners can count on him being in the lineup regularly.
Cubs prospect RHP C.J. Edwards has been promoted to Triple-A Iowa from Double-A Tennessee.
Edwards is moving up to the minor league’s highest level after posting a 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 36/17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 23 2/3 innings out of the bullpen for Tennessee. The 23-year-old right-hander appeared in 13 games for the Smokies and was 4-for-5 in save opportunities. Edwards had been especially dominant of late, rattling off seven consecutive hitless innings with 12 strikeouts in his last four appearances. The Cubs decision to move Edwards to the bullpen this season appears to be paying immediate dividends, and it’s almost a foregone conclusion we’ll see him pitching at Wrigley Field at some point this summer.
