Blue Jays manager John Gibbons indicated Thursday that Daniel Norris could rejoin the club's rotation before long.

Norris is slated to make his fourth start for Triple-A Buffalo on Friday after posting a 2.50 ERA with 20 strikeouts over 18 innings in his first three outings. "His last outing was pretty good, we just want to see that a couple of times, a few times maybe, for his own benefit. He needs that," Gibbons said. "We’re looking to get him back. He got here so quick, he started to struggle, you want to make sure what you did by sending him down was worthwhile, that he’s regrouped enough, instead of rushing him back. If he’s not quite ready yet, then you’re back to square one again."

Royals released LHP Joe Paterson.

Paterson posted a 5.68 ERA over 12 relief appearances at Triple-A Omaha this season. The 29-year-old has spent time in the majors in each of the last four seasons and shouldn't be out of a job long.

Austin Jackson (ankle) will remain on his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma through at least the weekend.

The Blue Jays have received a lot of flak for the condition of the artificial turf at Rogers Centre, and the Mariners understandably don't want Jackson to make his return on the sketchy playing surface. The M's will play on artificial turf in Tampa early next week, as well, but Jackson is a good bet to be activated then because the Rays' turf is in better shape.

Yusmeiro Petit will start the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Rockies.

That's assuming he isn't needed in relief on Friday. Petit hasn't thrown more than three innings in any appearance this season as the Giants' long reliever, so the club would probably be thrilled to get five frames out of him on Saturday.
May 22 - 10:38 AM

Jose Fernandez (elbow) is aiming to pitch in extended spring training games around the second week of June.

Fernandez threw approximately 30 pitches in his latest live batting practice session on Wednesday. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, the young ace is on track to rejoin the Marlins' rotation around July 1.
May 22 - 10:34 AM

Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) is expected to require at least two more rehab starts before being activated from the disabled list.

Tanaka threw just 41 pitches over three scoreless innings on Thursday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in his first rehab outing. He could throw 60 pitches in his next start and 75 in his one after that before being activated, or the Yankees might choose to give him an additional 90-pitch outing. Tanaka will meet with team medical staff and manager Joe Girardi on Friday and a plan will be laid out at that time.
May 22 - 9:36 AM

Yan Gomes (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

He will start the series finale versus the Reds. Gomes will be catching a full nine innings for the first time on his rehab assignment on Friday, and the Indians will be careful with him initially upon his return, not playing him in back-to-back games. Brett Hayes had been filling in as the club's backup catch and will be sent down on Sunday.
May 22 - 8:56 AM

Addison Russell went 2-for-4 with a solo homer on Thursday in a win against the Padres.

The seventh inning blast off Dale Thayer provided an insurance run in the 3-0 triumph. Slowly but surely, Russell is getting up to speed. The 21-year-old rookie slashed .179/.207/.286 in 28 April at-bats (14/1 K/BB rate) after his promotion, but now boasts a May OPS over .800. He has drawn four walks in the past six games after taking only three in his first 21.

    Things are getting heated in Atlanta. Braves just went Michael Pineda on Will Smith, thrown out for a foreign substance.
