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

It's just a routine day of rest. Mike Napoli is in the DH spot Friday, with Mike Carp handling first base.
Apr 18 - 4:25 PM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Nick Martinez is likely to be recalled to start on Tuesday in place of the injured Tanner Scheppers (elbow).

Martinez held his own in his major league debut earlier this month, allowing three runs over six frames against the Rays. He could be needed for more than one start, depending on when the Rangers bring Matt Harrison (back) back from the DL.
Apr 18 - 4:23 PM

Rangers designated INF Andy Parrino for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Aaron Poreda. Parrino will have the option of becoming a free agent if he clears waivers.
Apr 18 - 4:19 PM

Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Aaron Poreda from Triple-A Round Rock.

It's been an interesting journey for Poreda. The former first-round pick hasn't appeared in the majors since 2009 and has been limited to 20 minor league innings over the last two-plus seasons due to Tommy John surgery. He's reportedly throwing hard again, but control has always been his issue.
Apr 18 - 4:18 PM

Rangers placed RHP Tanner Scheppers on the 15-day disabled list with muscle inflammation in his right elbow.

The club is saying Scheppers' ligament is fine, as it's a muscular injury. That's obviously preferred, but it's not clear how long he might be sidelined. Nick Martinez is expected to be recalled to start on Tuesday in Scheppers' place.
Apr 18 - 4:15 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Martin Maldonado has caught Kyle Lohse's last few starts and will do so again Friday. Lucroy should be back in there Saturday.
Apr 18 - 4:11 PM

Wilson Ramos (hand) took five light swings Friday.

It's the first time he's swung a bat since hamate bone surgery on April 2. Although Ramos said he didn't feel any pain, his left wrist remains weak (which is no surprise). He's expected back with the Nationals in mid-May.
Apr 18 - 4:03 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Beltran is dealing with a sore left shoulder and right wrist after flipping over a short fence in foul territory during Thursday's game. He should be fine to play on Saturday. Ichiro Suzuki is taking his place in right field Friday.
