Kris Bryant (ankle) is not in the Cubs' lineup on Friday.

Bryant turned his right ankle on Thursday and underwent a precautionary MRI. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune says the third baseman "may miss a couple days," but adds that the Cubs are "not worried" about the injury. Javier Baez is filling in at the hot corner on Friday.

Orioles signed LHP Wandy Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

Rodriguez pitched well this spring for the Astros -- 3.95 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 11 strikeouts over 13 2/3 innings -- but didn't make the Opening Day roster and was released. Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com says that Rodriguez is headed to extended spring training before presumably being assigned to Triple-A Norfolk. The veteran left-hander holds a 5.34 ERA in the majors since the beginning of 2014.

The Brewers expect Scooter Gennett (oblique) to miss three weeks of action.

Gennett was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained right oblique. The injury didn't require an MRI, though, as the club believes the strain is a slight one. "It's not a bad (injury)," manager Craig Counsell said. "They didn't do an MRI. It wasn't deemed serious enough for that. It's still a DL (situation), though. These things are a little tricky so we'll go with it. He's not playing for at least two weeks, then we'll see." Yadiel Rivera has made two straight starts at second base with Gennett out, but Colin Walsh and Hernan Perez should see some time there, as well.

Tyler Saladino has been dealing with some back tightness of late.

It helps explain why he hasn't started a game since Sunday, although he did make an appearance late in Thursday's contest. Saladino has played a decent amount this season as the White Sox try to keep Jimmy Rollins fresh. The back ailment doesn't seem to be a big deal, although the Sox didn't call up Carlos Sanchez for some more infield protection.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is now "pain-free" after receiving a cortisone shot.

However, it's unclear when Gallardo, who is dealing with tendinitis in his rotator cuff, will resume throwing. "He’s started with his exercises with the cuff," Showalter said. "That’s where you get an idea of how strong it is or isn’t by the number of the weight or the weights that you can use. It gives you an idea of how far away somebody is by the amount of weight they start at with the strength exercises. It’s a process, but we like the potential of the return, so we’ll go as fast as we can but as slow as we need to."

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale indicated Thursday that Brandon Drury will continue to see regular playing time as long as he produces.

"We’ll have to figure out where (Friday) and keep running with it because he’s a darn good player," Hale said. Drury has started five of the last six games and done so at three different positions. He's made starts at second and third base and both corner outfield spots this season and is batting .384 with three homers and seven RBI over his last 10 contests. The D'Backs could move David Peralta to center field and hand Drury the right field job, but they're hesitant to do it on a full-time basis since it would really weaken their defense. Drury needs to be owned in deeper fantasy leagues even if he doesn't have an official position.

MLB suspended Dee Gordon for 80 games without pay for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances.

Stunning late-night news. Gordon tested positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. The suspension is effective immediately. Gordon has turned his career around over the past two seasons and won the NL batting crown during his first season with the Marlins last year. The 28-year-old recently signed a five-year, $50 million extension with Miami, but the club will now be without him until after the All-Star break.

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

Stanton's solo homer off reliever Pedro Baez in the eighth boosted the Marlin lead to 5-2 and offered a nice insurance run in the process. The superstar slugger is now slashing .253/.352/.560 with seven homers and 18 RBI over 75 at-bats as April draws to a close. Even with the somewhat middling average, he is an elite power hitter.
