Jonathan Papelbon was unavailable on Friday due to illness.
Papelbon wasn't even with the team on Friday, he was at home in bed. He may need another day or two before he's able to rejoin the active ranks. Ken Giles would get the call in any save chances while the veteran right-hander is sidelined.
Jordan Zimmerman held the Marlins to two runs over six innings in Friday's loss.
Zimmerman had allowed nine earned runs over his last 8 2/3 innings, but he settled things down against the Marlins. Over his six innings on Friday, he scattered six hits, struck out four and did not walk a batter. The lone cloud on this outing came when he allowed RBI singles to Mat Latos and Dee Gordon in the fifth inning. Zimmerman would not factor into the decision in the 3-2 loss. He'll look to keep that 5.25 ERA moving downward when he takes to the road against the Braves in his next start.
Ben Revere drove home the game-winning run in the ninth inning on Friday, delivering the Phillies a 1-0 victory over the Braves.
Freddy Galvis singled off Jim Johnson to lead off the ninth inning, was sacrificed to second and took third on a passed ball, setting the stage for Revere's ground ball to first base to plate the winning run. Even with the lone RBI, Revere finished the night 0-for-5 and is hitting just .172/.213/.259 on the season.
Aaron Harang was magnificent again on Friday, firing eight shutout innings in a no-decision against the Braves.
Unfortunately for Harang, his team was unable to scratch out a run of support for him. He scattered just two hits and a walk over his eight frames while racking up six strikeouts. He seems to be at his best every April, and this year has been no different with a 1.37 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 21/6 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. He'll face a much tougher test next time out when he does battle against the Cardinals in St. Louis on Wednesday.
Eric Young Jr. went 0-for-4 as the Braves were shutout by the Phillies on Friday.
As a team, the Braes were able to muster just two hits against Aaron Harang and company. Young continues to play regularly and hit atop the Braves lineup despite his .174/.208/.326 slash line. It could only be a matter of time before Cameron Maybin supplants him in the leadoff spot.
Alex Wood pitched well in a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday, hurling 5 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.
Wood allowed just five hits and two walks while striking out one. He did struggle with his command though, which led to an elevated pitch count (101) and a departure before finishing the sixth inning. The young southpaw now boasts a 3.00 ERA on the season, though he has fanned just 12 hitters in 24 innings and carries a troublesome 1.50 WHIP. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he takes on the Nationals.
Mariners recalled LHP Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma.
The 28-year-old hurler appeared in 12 games for the Marlins in 2014, posting a 5.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over nine innings. His stay is likely to be short lived as the M's must decide how to handle Hisashi Iwakuma's vacant rotation spot on Sunday.
Mariners placed RHP Hisashi Iwakuma on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 21, with a strained lat muscle.
Iwakuma was scheduled to start on Sunday, though it's unclear at the moment who will fill in for him. He posted a troublesome 6.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP awhile allowing five home runs over 16 1/3 innings in his first three starts. The M's hope to have him back in the rotation in late-May.
