Rangers designated INF Andy Parrino for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Aaron Poreda. Parrino will have the option of becoming a free agent if he clears waivers.
Apr 18 - 4:19 PM

Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Aaron Poreda from Triple-A Round Rock.

It's been an interesting journey for Poreda. The former first-round pick hasn't appeared in the majors since 2009 and has been limited to 20 minor league innings over the last two-plus seasons due to Tommy John surgery. He's reportedly throwing hard again, but control has always been his issue.
Apr 18 - 4:18 PM

Rangers placed RHP Tanner Scheppers on the 15-day disabled list with muscle inflammation in his right elbow.

The club is saying Scheppers' ligament is fine, as it's a muscular injury. That's obviously preferred, but it's not clear how long he might be sidelined. Nick Martinez is expected to be recalled to start on Tuesday in Scheppers' place.
Apr 18 - 4:15 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Martin Maldonado has caught Kyle Lohse's last few starts and will do so again Friday. Lucroy should be back in there Saturday.
Apr 18 - 4:11 PM

Wilson Ramos (hand) took five light swings Friday.

It's the first time he's swung a bat since hamate bone surgery on April 2. Although Ramos said he didn't feel any pain, his left wrist remains weak (which is no surprise). He's expected back with the Nationals in mid-May.
Apr 18 - 4:03 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Beltran is dealing with a sore left shoulder and right wrist after flipping over a short fence in foul territory during Thursday's game. He should be fine to play on Saturday. Ichiro Suzuki is taking his place in right field Friday.
Apr 18 - 4:02 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Friday that Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will "probably" begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday at Triple-A Tacoma.

Iwakuma had a successful simulated game Friday and will throw one more bullpen session Sunday before beginning a rehab assignment. It's not clear at this point how many rehab starts the right-hander will need, but his early May timetable still appears to be a realistic goal.
Apr 18 - 3:59 PM

Jason Heyward is not in the Braves' lineup Friday.

Heyward is in a terrible funk at the plate with just two hits in his last 34 at-bats. He's being replaced in right field by Ryan Doumit and in the leadoff spot by Andrelton Simmons.
