Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) will make his 2018 debut Monday or Tuesday against the Athletics.

May 24 - 5:09 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will be activated for Friday's game against the Braves.

May 24 - 5:05 PM

Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports the Nationals will recall RHP Justin Miller from Triple-A Syracuse.

He'll absorb the roster spot left by Erick Fedde, who was optioned back to the minors on Thursday. Miller has been lights out this year, contributing a perfect 0.00 ERA along with a 15.15 K/9 over nine relief outings for Syracuse. The 30-year-old right-hander should pitch in middle relief.
May 24 - 4:43 PM

Nick Tropeano limited the Blue Jays to one run and four hits in 7 1/3 innings to win Thursday.

Tropeano won't pitch this deep into games very often and he's no sure bet to remain healthy in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, but he's a solid pitcher with the potential to be of at least occasional use in mixed leagues. It helps that he has the very good Angels defense behind him. He's currently 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA in seven starts.
May 24 - 4:41 PM

Jurickson Profar is not in the Rangers' lineup Thursday against the Royals.

It's surprising to see him sit after going 3-for-8 with six RBI over his last two games. Hanser Alberto will handle shortstop in Profar's place and bat eighth against KC left-hander Danny Duffy.
May 24 - 4:41 PM

Marco Estrada lost after giving up four runs in 4 1/3 innings Thursday against the Angels.

That's three straight defeats for Estrada. He shouldn't be at any risk of getting bounced from the Blue Jays' rotation, but he's been a disappointment with his 5.40 ERA to date.
May 24 - 4:39 PM

Shohei Ohtani doubled twice, walked twice and scored twice Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Ohtani is going to get more of a chance to swing the bat this weekend after being scratched from his start Sunday. As is, he's yet to be in the lineup more than four times in a row. Today's start was his third straight, and he'll probably be in there all weekend, too.
May 24 - 4:37 PM

Travis Shaw is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

He's getting the night off against left-hander Steven Matz. Utility man Hernan Perez will fill in at third base and bat fifth. Shaw leads the Brewers in both home runs (12) and RBI (31) despite a sluggish .243 batting average.
