Jose Abreu (finger) is unlikely to play on Saturday.

The 28-year-old slugger was removed from Friday's game due to irritation in his right index finger and was sent for X-rays. Abreu initially sustained the injury two weeks ago during a game in Chicago and it has continued to bother him off and on since. Be sure to check the White Sox lineup before game time, but it would be surprising to see Abreu in there on Saturday.

Miguel Castro was removed from Friday's game at Triple-A Buffalo with a right hand injury.

The Blue Jays aren't quite sure what the injury is specifically, so he'll visit a hand specialist to undergo further tests. In five starts with Triple-A Buffalo since his demotion, Castro has registered a 3.09 ERA, 1.97 WHIP and 15/8 K/BB ratio.
May 30 - 9:49 AM

David Ortiz is expected to return to the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

He has taken the last few days off to work on his swing in the "Ortiz laboratory" with Red Sox hitting coach Chili Davis. The duo believe his biggest issue this season has been mental, trying to do too much at the dish while swinging at the wrong pitches, ones that he can't drive consistently. The 39-year-old slugger has been a major disappointment thus far, hitting .216/.303/.377 with six homers and 18 RBI in 43 games.

Orioles signed RHP Mikey O'Brien to a minor league contract.

The 25-year-old right-hander was released by the Rays after posting a 5.68 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio over 25 1/3 innings at Double-A Montgomery. He'll serve as organizational bullpen depth at Double-A Bowie.

Yonder Alonso moved his minor league rehab assignment up to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

He played in two games at High-A Lake Elsinore, going 1-for-6 with three walks before joining El Paso where he went 0-for-3 with a pair of walks and two runs scored on Friday. He's getting closer to a return to the Padres and could be activated from the disabled list at the beginning of next week.

Rockies placed Justin Morneau on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical strain and concussion symptoms.

Morneau had been on the 7-day concussion disabled list since May 16 but simply wasn't improving quickly enough. There remains no clear timetable for his return to the Rockies lineup. Wilin Rosario and Ben Paulsen will continue to see the bulk of playing time at first base in his absence.
May 30 - 8:35 AM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia admitted after Friday's game that Joe Smith was unavailable due to a knot in his neck.

While the issue isn't believed to be serious, it does affect his delivery and Smith is receiving treatment for it. He should return to game action at some point over the weekend. The 31-year-old hurler boasts a 3.80 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 22/6 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings on the season.
May 30 - 8:31 AM

Ben Revere is expected to share time in right field with Jeff Francoeur now that Cody Asche has been recalled to play left field for the Phillies.

That will certainly cut into Revere's fantasy value, as it's hard to steal bases if you aren't on the field. The 27-year-old is hitting .263/.303/.342 with no homers, 15 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season.
