T.J. McFarland (knee) will throw a simulated game on Friday or Saturday.

McFarland injured his left knee making a start for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, but on the positive side, no structural damage was found when he underwent an MRI. Assuming his simulated game goes well, he could return to minor league action in relatively short order.

Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey (hernia) threw off flat ground on Wednesday.

Harvey underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia at the beginning of May. He was expected to miss 4-6 weeks at the time of the surgery, putting him in line for a return to the minors at some point in June. Injuries have been a concern for the 21-year-old right-hander early in his professional development. He missed all of 2015 due to elbow woes and a broken leg.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Brandon Belt suffered only a "mild" ankle sprain in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Belt injured the ankle while sliding into second base in the eighth inning. He was able to walk off the field under his own power. After the game, Bochy said that it might take a few games for Belt to return to action, but there are no indications that this is any type of serious injury. He could maybe play Friday in Colorado.

J.J. Hardy continues to feel soreness in his fractured left foot.

Hardy underwent an X-ray last week, one which showed that his foot was healing up nicely. Manager Buck Showalter said on Wednesday that the veteran shortstop is still not to the point where he is ready to take part in any weight-bearing exercises, though. Hardy will head to the team's spring training complex in Sarasota to prepare for rehab work on Friday. He could return around mid-June if the soreness dissipates soon.

Brandon Crawford hit a walkoff RBI single to send the Giants to a 4-3, 10-inning win over the Padres on Wednesday.

Matt Duffy managed a one-out single against reliever Brad Hand in the 10th inning and later moved to second on a wild pitch, setting the stage for Crawford. The 29-year-old shortstop came through with a deep RBI single to win the game. It would have gone for a double or triple in any other circumstance. For the season, Crawford is hitting .262/.337/.449 with six homers and 27 RBI.
May 25 - 7:17 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons suggested Wednesday evening that Devon Travis (shoulder) could move swiftly to the top spot in the batting order.

Travis is hitting eighth Wednesday in his first game since July 28, 2015, but Gibbons told reporters that the dynamic 25-year-old second baseman will slide up quickly if he looks sharp in his first couple of games. Travis hit .304/.361/.498 with eight home runs and three stolen bases in 62 games last season for Toronto, batting leadoff in 22 of his 60 starts. He'd carry huge fantasy potential at the head of a dangerous Jays offense.
May 25 - 7:17 PM

Jake Peavy turned in a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Padres on Wednesday, yielding one run on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Peavy entered Wednesday's start holding an 8.21 ERA, but he pitched far better than that bloated number against the Padres. The only run to score on his watch came when Alexei Ramirez notched an RBI single in the seventh inning. The veteran right-hander will need to string together multiple starts of this variety if he wants to extricate himself from his current 7.26 ERA and 1.78 WHIP. A road start against the Braves shows next on his schedule.
May 25 - 7:09 PM

James Shields pitched respectably in Wednesday's no-decision against the Giants, surrendering two runs on five hits over six innings.

Shields struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. RBI singles by Kelby Tomlinson and Matt Duffy in the second and sixth innings, respectively, accounted for the scoring on the veteran right-hander's line. He will carry a 3.06 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 56/23 K/BB ratio (64 2/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a road date with the Mariners.
