Brad Peacock (intercostal) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Friday.

It was the first time he's thrown off a mound since going on the disabled list in mid-April with a left intercostal strain. There's no timetable for Peacock's return, but it will be a while since he'll need a rehab assignment first and is just now throwing from the bump again.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Matt Wieters (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list on June 5.

He's eligible to be activated on June 4, but it appears the O's will have Wieters join them in Cleveland rather than a day earlier in Houston. Showalter added that the catcher will have no physical restrictions when he returns, so it sounds like fantasy owners can count on him being in the lineup regularly.

Cubs prospect RHP C.J. Edwards has been promoted to Triple-A Iowa from Double-A Tennessee.

Edwards is moving up to the minor league’s highest level after posting a 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 36/17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 23 2/3 innings out of the bullpen for Tennessee. The 23-year-old right-hander appeared in 13 games for the Smokies and was 4-for-5 in save opportunities. Edwards had been especially dominant of late, rattling off seven consecutive hitless innings with 12 strikeouts in his last four appearances. The Cubs decision to move Edwards to the bullpen this season appears to be paying immediate dividends, and it’s almost a foregone conclusion we’ll see him pitching at Wrigley Field at some point this summer.
May 29 - 4:37 PM

Cardinals activated OF Jon Jay from the 15-day disabled list.

Jay missed the last couple weeks with tendinitis in his surgically-repaired left wrist. He's not in Friday's lineup and with Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos playing well, Jay will likely have to share the center field job.

Jason Castro is not in the Astros' lineup Friday.

It's a routine day off. Hank Conger is behind the dish in Castro's place.
May 29 - 4:26 PM

David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

It's his second straight day of rest, as the club is giving the struggling slugger some time off to work on his swing. Hanley Ramirez is the designated hitter Friday, with Brock Holt handling left field.
May 29 - 4:12 PM

Giants signed INF/OF Jeff Kobernus to a minor league contract.

Kobernus has finally latched on somewhere after being released by the Nationals in spring training. The 26-year-old is merely an organizational depth guy.
May 29 - 4:08 PM

Mets prospect OF Michael Conforto has been promoted to Double-A Binghamton from High-A St. Lucie.

Selected by the Mets with the No. 10 overall pick in last year’s draft, Conforto is moving up to the Binghamton after batting .283/.350/.462 with seven home runs and 12 doubles in 206 plate appearances in the Florida State League. It was reported in late April that the 22-year-old was nearing a promotion to Double-A, but there wasn’t any harm in the Mets keeping him at St. Lucie for an additional month. Binghamton is set to square off against Altoona tonight on the road, but there’s no word yet whether Conforto will be in the lineup.
