Saturday's game between the Cubs and the Reds has been postponed due to rain.
The teams sat through a four-hour rain delay before the game was called. No makeup date has been announced. Anthony DeSclafani and Jake Arrieta will have their starts pushed back to Sunday. The Cubs won 7-3 Friday in the series opener.
Red Sox recalled RHP Matt Barnes from Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Red Sox placed Shane Victorino (hamstring) on the 15-day DL, opening up a roster spot for Barnes. The 24-year-old was starting for Pawtucket, but he'll be used out of the bullpen in Boston. This will be Barnes' second stint in the majors after appearing in five games for the Red Sox last September.
Red Sox placed OF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring strain.
Another season, another Victorino injury. The 34-year-old spent most of last year on the DL and couldn't make it three weeks into the 2015 campaign before getting hurt again. With Rusney Castillo (shoulder) also injured, Allen Craig and Daniel Nava will fill the void in right field. Fantasy owners won't miss Victorino much, as he was only hitting .143 prior to getting sidelined.
Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday night.
Andre Ethier is starting in right field instead. Puig aggravated his left hamstring on Friday night and is considered day-to-day for now. He missed four games earlier this week with the same hamstring issue.
Padres activated RHP Ian Kennedy from the 15-day disabled list.
Kennedy missed his first few turns through the rotation because of a strained hamstring. He opted for extended spring training instead of a minor league rehab assignment and will make his 2015 debut on Saturday night against the Dodgers. The 30-year-old workhorse led San Diego in wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts last season. Lefty reliever Frank Garces was sent down to Triple-A El Paso in the corresponding roster move.
Padres optioned LHP Frank Garces to Triple-A El Paso.
He was sent down to make room for Ian Kennedy. Garces pitched well during his six-game stint with the Padres, allowing just one earned run in 5 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old lefty will probably spend most of 2015 bouncing between El Paso and San Diego.
Matt Wieters (elbow) will catch 4-5 innings in an extended spring training game on Monday.
Wieters was behind the plate Friday as well. The 28-year-old is working his way back from Tommy John surgery. In addition to being one of the better defensive catchers in baseball, Wieters is an above average power hitter when healthy. Caleb Joseph will return to backup duty when Wieters returns sometime in May. Unless he signs an extension, Wieters will hit free agency this winter.
Rajai Davis went 2-for-4 and swiped three bases on Saturday as the Tigers topped the Indians 4-1 at Comerica Park.
Davis was the spark plug atop the Tigers lineup, running wild every chance that he got and scoring three of the team's four runs in the ballgame. He's off to another strong start in 2015, slashing .297/.409/.405 with six steals on the season.
