Nationals optioned OF Matt den Dekker to Triple-A Syracuse.

He's clearing space for the return of Ben Revere (oblique) from the disabled list. Den Dekker has hit .194/.265/.323 over 34 plate appearances with the big club this season.

Nationals activated OF Ben Revere from the 15-day disabled list.

Revere missed a little over a month of action with a strained right oblique. He's back in center field and leading off for the Nationals on Friday against the Cubs and John Lackey.

Justin Bour (finger) is hoping to return to the Marlins' lineup sometime over the weekend.

Bour suffered a dislocated left pinkie finger on Tuesday while diving back into second base. He was examined by a hand specialist on Thursday and it sounds like he could be cleared to return to action as soon as Friday. Bour is hitting .276/.341/.461 with three homers so far this season.

Jason Heyward (wrist) is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Heyward missed four starts with a sore right wrist, although he replaced Dexter Fowler during Thursday's game after Fowler was ejected. The 26-year-old is hitting just .207/.311/.250 so far this season. The Cubs also have Javier Baez at shortstop and Tommy La Stella at third base Friday, with Addison Russell and Jorge Soler on the bench and Kris Bryant in left field.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that Andrew Heaney has damage to his left ulnar collateral ligament.

Heaney was diagnosed with a flexor muscle strain after he was placed on the disabled list following his first start of the season, but Passan hears the injury is worse than that. The left-hander has been given a platelet-rich plasma injection and will attempt to rehab the injury initially, although it's far from a given that he'll be able to accomplish that. It's been a rotten day for injuries for the Angels, as Passan has also reported that Garrett Richards is headed for Tommy John surgery.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that Garrett Richards has a torn right ulnar collateral ligament and is expected to need Tommy John surgery.

Multiple other outlets have confirmed the report. The Angels cited fatigue and dehydration when they scratched Richards from Friday's scheduled start versus the Rays, but Passan says they found the UCL tear while examining the righty on Thursday. It's absolutely brutal news for the club, as Richards is far and away their best starter. Assuming he goes under the knife, he would be sidelined until around midseason next year. Passan says that Andrew Heaney has UCL damage, too, but will try to rehab the injury for now. The Angels should have an update on their pitchers later Friday.

Nick Hundley (oblique) will be re-evaluated Friday before the Rockies determine whether he'll need a stint on the disabled list.

Hundley tweaked his left oblique during batting practice Thursday and had to be scratched from the lineup. "I've been feeling good physically, so it's frustrating on that end," Hundley said Thursday. "I'll have to check and see how it feels tomorrow. I cut batting practice a little bit short and I was going to go until it got worse." Dustin Garneau will be recalled if Hundley goes on the DL and he'd be in line to share time behind the plate with Tony Wolters.

Brett Gardner (elbow) hopes to be back in the lineup on Friday.

Gardner didn't start Thursday after being hit on the right elbow by a pitch Wednesday, although he did appear as a pinch-runner and stole a base. "I’d say it’s about the same," said Gardner. "I was able to sleep in kind of an awkward position and keep it elevated for the most part most of the night, so I think that helped out."
