Sergio Romo will start Friday and Sunday's game for the Rays against the Orioles.

Romo will be on the bump to begin two of the three games against Baltimore, and on Saturday they'll put another reliever on the mound to start in Ryne Stanek. Romo will likely go an inning plus how many right-handers are still on the mound, and then give way to a "long" reliever. There is very little fantasy value in this, nor is there value in Romo's 4.34 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 2018.

Wilson Ramos (hand) is back in the starting lineup and hitting fourth plus catching on Thursday against the Red Sox.

Ramos sat on Wednesday after taking a foul ball off of his left hand. X-rays came back negative, and he feels well enough to be back in the lineup against Boston. In 37 games, Ramos has hit six homers and driven in 22 runs with a .784 OPS.

Carlos Rodon (shoulder) will make a rehab start on Thursday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Rodon will be making his second rehab start of the year, and is coming off a start where he threw five innings and struck out six while allowing just one run on Saturday for Low-A Kannapolis. Assuming everything goes well and there are no setbacks, he should have a chance to rejoin the rotation in the beginning of June.
May 24 - 2:40 PM

Ryan Buchter (shoulder) has begun throwing from 75 feet.

Buchter has been out since late April with a shoulder strain, but the fact that he's able to now play long toss is a good sign towards his recovery, albeit not a guarantee that he's close to returning. If there's no soreness, there's a chance that Buchter could begin bullpen sessions next, but there's obviously still work to be done before that happens.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the assault allegations against Roberto Osuna are of a "physical nature" and could result in a "significant" ban.

Osuna has denied that he did actual physical harm. His administrative leave was extended on Monday through May 28; the second time that his leave has been extended since his arrest for assault on May 8. Heyman mentions that previous cases for domestic violence without proof of physical abuse have received 15-game suspensions. If Heyman's sources are correct in the serious nature of the accusations, Osuna could be facing something closer to Aroldis Chapman's 30-game number, maybe more.

White Sox transferred RHP Miguel Gonzalez to the 60-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day disabled list on April 23, but recently had a setback and had to have a PRP injection into his shoulder in the middle of May. The move cleared a spot on the 40-man roster for the White Sox to claim Dustin Garneau off waivers from Oakland. We won't see Gonzalez back until after the All-Star break, at the earliest.

White Sox claimed C Dustin Garneau off waivers from the Athletics.

Garneau was designated for assignment on Monday. To make room on the 40-man roster for Garneau, the White Sox transferred Miguel Gonzalez to the 60-day disabled list. The White Sox need catching depth with Welington Castillo suspended for the next 80 games, and Garneau provides it. He's hitting .208/.263/.33 over 22 games with Triple-A Nashville in 2018.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners.

Bruce Maxwell starts instead, and is hitting ninth against Felix Hernandez. Lucroy is still looking for his first homer in an Oakland uniform, and he's hit .267 with 11 RBI in his 39 games so far in 2018.
