Adam Wainwright said Thursday that the results of tests on his right elbow have been "really encouraging" so far.

He still needs to undergo further testing, but so far it doesn't look like he's dealing with any structural damage. "That’s really encouraging," Wainwright said. "You go into something like that and you say, ‘What are they going to find?’ They found the ‘best-case scenario’ stuff. It’s just that my joint basically was inflamed." Wainwright isn't eligible to return until mid-July and what role he'll ultimately have by that time is totally up in the air.

Paul DeJong is expected to miss 4-8 weeks after having surgery last week to insert screws and a metal plate into his fractured left hand.

The Cardinals never revealed a projected timetable for the shortstop, but DeJong said Thursday that he heard it would be anywhere from four to eight weeks. "That’s a huge range," he said. "I’m just going to take it week by week. Ask me next week. Hopefully, I’ll be close to swinging." The Cards have been using Jedd Gyorko, Yairo Munoz and Greg Garcia at shortstop since DeJong went down.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Thursday that he didn't think there would be any restrictions on how many innings Alex Reyes (elbow) will be allowed to throw the rest of the season.

"Due to the fact he’s going into the rotation at the end of May or in June, he should be able to go really as much as you could hope. I don’t think he will have a cap," said Mozeliak. The Cardinals will surely use caution when they can with Reyes in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, but it appears he's not going to face a strict innings limit the rest of the way. The righty didn't allow a single run over four rehab starts, striking out 44 over 23 innings. Reyes will join the St. Louis rotation as soon as Tuesday in Milwaukee.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not expected to bat any higher than sixth in the Red Sox' lineup upon his activation from the disabled list Friday.

Pedroia has often been the team's No. 2 hitter, but Andrew Benintendi is doing a fine job in that spot and the team doesn't want to disrupt a lineup that's been so good. The veteran second baseman is coming back from knee surgery and went just 1-for-14 at the plate for Triple-A Pawtucket on his rehab assignment.

Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Jason Heyward isn't playing, either, with the Giants throwing lefty Derek Holland. The Cubs have Ian Happ, Albert Almora and Ben Zobrist in their outfield, with Zobrist batting leadoff.

Colby Rasmus (hip) has begun playing in extended spring training games.

Rasmus has been out since early April with a left hip flexor strain. It's unclear when he might be ready for an official rehab assignment, but he still needs a decent number of at-bats to knock the rust off given how much time he's missed.

Shelby Miller's (elbow) next start could come on an official rehab assignment.

Miller made his third extended spring training start Wednesday, allowing one run over five innings and saying afterward that his arm felt "great." The right-hander said that he hasn't been told yet where he'll make his next start, but he's "assuming it might be at an affiliate." If Miller does indeed begin a rehab assignment early next week, that would potentially put him in line to rejoin the Diamondbacks in late June.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Deck McGuire to Triple-A Buffalo.

McGuire has allowed six runs over 8 1/3 relief innings in the majors this season. He'll return to Buffalo's rotation.
