Paul Goldschmidt is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Pirates.

It's just a routine day of rest for the All-Star slugger. Jordan Pacheco will draw the start at first base and bat sixth against opposing hurler Edinson Volquez.
Aug 1 - 7:05 PM

Emilio Bonifacio is making his Braves debut on Friday, playing right field and hitting eighth against the Padres.

Bonifacio is likely to be used as a super-utility type, seeing work all over the diamond while finding his way into the lineup on a fairly regular basis. His speed continues to make him a strong fantasy option.
Aug 1 - 7:02 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that Jim Henderson (shoulder) isn't ready to return to the bullpen.

Henderson has been on a minor league rehab assignment, but instead of rejoining the Brewers, he will remain on the disabled list and head to Arizona to continue strengthening his shoulder.
Aug 1 - 6:50 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Friday that Jesse Chavez has been moved back to the bullpen.

The 30-year-old gave the A's a tremendous boost over his first 21 starts, compiling a 3.44 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 119/41 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings. He'll function in a middle relief role for the A's while Jason Hammel maintains the final spot in the rotation.
Aug 1 - 6:42 PM

Cubs recalled INF Chris Valaika from Triple-A Iowa.

He'll take the place of Felix Doubront on the active roster, who was placed on the disabled list on Friday. The utility infielder was hitting .278/.344/.423 with 10 homers and 50 RBI over 102 games at Iowa. He'll function in a reserve role for the Cubs.
Aug 1 - 6:39 PM

Adam Lind (foot) could begin a rehab assignment early- to mid-next week.

He should only need a few rehab games before being activated. Lind is expected to beat Edwin Encarnacion (quad) back from the disabled list. He's been out since early July with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.
Aug 1 - 5:58 PM

Brett Lawrie (finger) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin on Friday.

Lawrie is expected to be there for at least a week and will play both third and second base before the club makes a decision on where to put him once activated. He's been out since late June with a fractured right index finger.
Aug 1 - 5:57 PM

Jon Jay is not in Friday's lineup due to a sore wrist.

It explains why Peter Bourjos is getting a rare start versus a right-hander Friday. Jay's ailment looks to be a day-to-day situation, so expect him back in there sometime over the weekend.
