Baseball America's Ben Badler reports that the Cardinals and White Sox are viewed as the favorites to sign Cuban outfielder Luis Robert.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan is hearing the same, and he's been told by two sources that Robert has already picked a team and is expected to sign soon after he's officially eligible on Saturday. Passan also reports that Robert's price tag could approach $25 million, and that would come with a 100 percent overage tax, leaving the potential total cost in the $50 million range. The 19-year-old Robert, a center fielder, is considered an elite young talent.

Rockies released 1B/OF Stephen Cardullo.

Cardullo has spent some time in the majors this season and was hitting .308/.419/.423 at Triple-A Albuquerque, so there must be something else to this move. Perhaps he found a higher-paying gig overseas. We should find out more later Friday.

Stephen Piscotty (hamstring) left Thursday's rehab game with Double-A Springfield after two innings after tweaking his knee.

His removal was precautionary, and it's possible he'll be ready to play for Springfield again on Friday depending on how he feels. Piscotty had been due for activation this weekend and it sounds like that could still happen, but we'll have to wait and see how his knee is doing.

Chad Pinder went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Pinder mashed a long two-run tater off Hector Velazquez in the fourth inning to give the A's a 6-3 advantage. They would go on to win by an 8-3 final. The home run was Pinder's third of the season. He has played well in limited time, hitting .282/.349/.590 with the three homers and seven RBI across 39 at-bats.
May 19 - 2:02 AM

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Lowrie struck for a two-run shot against Hector Velazquez in the first inning, his fifth home run of the season. In addition to that quintet of dingers, he owns a .268/.345/.436 triple-slash and has driven in 11 runs across 40 games played.
May 19 - 2:00 AM

Mitch Moreland went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the A's.

Moreland temporarily knotted up the score at 3-3 with his solo home run off Sonny Gray in the fourth inning, but the A's would come right back with three runs of their own in the bottom of the frame to take a lead that would not be relinquished. Moreland is now slashing .254/.361/.430 with three homers and 17 RBI across 142 at-bats.
May 19 - 1:58 AM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the A's.

While this was Pedroia's fourth multi-hit game in his last 10 contests, it has been a quiet season for the veteran second baseman on the whole. He is hitting just .281/.358/.374 for the season. His average and on-base percentage are fine, but the power just has not been there. Pedroia has picked up only nine extra-base hits in 139 at-bats.
May 19 - 1:56 AM

Sonny Gray turned in a quality start in Thursday's win over the Red Sox, striking out eight while allowing three runs over six innings.

Gray surrendered two runs in the first inning on a Hanley Ramirez RBI single and Chris Young sacrifice fly, then one more in the third inning on a solo home run by Mitch Moreland. Otherwise, he kept the Red Sox at bay, scattering four hits while striking out eight and walking two. Through his first four starts of the season (covering 22 2/3 innings), Gray has pitched to a 3.97 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 17/7 K/BB ratio. He will play host to the Marlins in his next scheduled start.
