Wily Peralta was removed from Friday's start against the Braves after just four innings due to tightness in his left side.

He departed with a 10-0 lead, so to not stick around for another inning to earn the victory, so the team was clearly concerned about the issue. The Brewers should have an update on his status and potential timetable for his return shortly.

Matt Cain (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Friday, mixing in offspeed pitches with fastballs.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy came away from the session encouraged. As long as he doesn't experience any unusual soreness on Saturday, he'll proceed to the next stage of his rehab which will be facing live hitters for the first time on Tuesday. While he's finally making tangible progress, he still isn't expected to return to the Giants before July.

White Sox acquired RHP Blake Smith from the Dodgers for LHP Eric Surkamp.

A former outfielder that has been converted to the bullpen, the 27-year-old owns a 1.62 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 16/9 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings at Double-A Tulsa. He'll provide organizational bullpen depth for the White Sox.
May 22 - 8:07 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Friday that David Hernandez (elbow) could rejoin the Diamondbacks' bullpen next week.

The right-hander is working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He has already appeared in two minor league rehab games with High-A Visalia, tossing a pair of scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and striking out three.

Dodgers acquired LHP Eric Surkamp from the White Sox for RHP Blake Smith..

The 27-year-old posted a 2.81 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 30/9 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings at Triple-A Charlotte. It's unclear if the Dodgers view him as bullpen depth or if they'll stretch him out as a starter.
May 22 - 7:50 PM

Carl Crawford (oblique) has been working out at the team's spring training facility in Arizona, but there remains no clear timetable for his return.

His injured oblique is still giving him issues when exercising, so the team will continue to take things slowly as he attempts his recovery. At this point, he appears to be at least another couple of weeks away, minimum.
May 22 - 7:26 PM

Yasiel Puig attempted to jog on Friday, but is still experiencing tightness in his left hamstring.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Friday afternoon that Puig was feeling much better and that it may not be long before he returns, but it appears as though he's still dealing with the hamstring issue. He'll still need a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Dodgers, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on having him any time soon.
May 22 - 7:23 PM

Brandon Beachy (elbow) said Friday that he has yet to be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment.

Beachy indicated that the timetable for his return remains fluid. He will throw at least another pair of simulated games before making the next step in his recovery. He isn't expected to be an option for the Dodgers rotation until around the All-Star break.
