Lucas Duda (oblique) took batting practice on Friday.
It's the first time he's faced live pitching since he strained his oblique just over a week ago. Duda was given a cortisone injection for the ailment and it appears it has helped speed along the healing process. It's not clear when he might be game-ready, but Duda should have plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback.
Stephen Vogt (foot) will run the bases Friday or Saturday.
If that goes well, Vogt will get some at-bats at designated hitter in some Cactus League games soon. His rehab from foot surgery is going well, as Vogt is on track to be ready to roll on Opening Day as long as he can avoid setbacks.
Mike Carp was scratched from Friday's lineup due to a toe injury.
Carp took a pitch off his pinkie toe on Thursday and the toe was still swollen Friday. He should be fine after a couple days of rest. Carp is competing for a bench spot with the Nationals.
Yunel Escobar will have his back examined by a doctor Friday.
Escobar was scratched from Thursday's game due to what the Nationals said at the time was "general soreness," but it appears the ailment is focused on the infielder's back. Manager Matt Williams isn't too concerned, but we'll obviously know more about Escobar's status after the exam.
Gavin Floyd had to halt a live batting practice session on Wednesday after seven pitches due to "general soreness."
Floyd isn't concerned, but his next step has yet to be determined. Indians manager Terry Francona noted that the soreness the righty is experiencing is in a different spot than was operated on last June. If Floyd were get a late start to the season, Danny Salazar and T.J. House could both be penciled into the Indians' rotation.
Jorge De La Rosa was scratched from Saturday's scheduled outing due to left groin tightness.
It's just a precautionary move, as De La Rosa will play catch Friday, throw off the mound Saturday and plans to make his next scheduled start next week. As long as he doesn't have a setback, the veteran left-hander will be fine for Opening Day.
Yu Darvish (triceps) will undergo an MRI on Friday.
Darvish had to exit Thursday's Cactus League appearance due to right triceps tightness. He reported improvement Friday and the Rangers don't seem to be worried, but it's protocol for them to order an MRI just in case. Even if the MRI comes back clean, he would figure to rest a bit as a precaution. The results will be in on Saturday.
Omar Infante was scratched from Friday's lineup due to ongoing soreness in his right elbow.
Infante, who has dealt with soreness in his throwing elbow since the beginning of camp, had been slated to serve as the designated hitter. The Royals are hoping he'll be ready to serve as DH on Saturday, but he's set to undergo an MRI on Friday just in case.
