Cubs RHP prospect Oscar De La Cruz pitched six one-hit innings on Thursday for Double-A Tennessee.

To give you an idea of how bad De La Cruz had been coming into Thursday start, even after throwing six scoreless innings he has an ERA of 8.25. Yikes. Still, this was an example of why many consider the 23-year-old to be among the best pitching prospects in the Chicago system, as he has two plus pitches in his fastball and curve. The key will be locating those pitches better, and improving his fringe-average change. If he can't, he could be excellent in relief. If he can, he's a mid-rotation starter.

Red Sox optioned RHP Marcus Walden to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Walden holds a 4.09 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 11 relief innings with the big club this season. He'll surely be back at some point.

Red Sox activated LHP Drew Pomeranz from the 10-day disabled list.

Pomeranz will make his season debut Friday versus the A's after he suffered a flexor strain during spring training. The left-hander wasn't overly sharp during two rehab outings (5/9 K/BB ratio over 9 2/3 innings), so fantasy owners might be wise to give him a start to knock the rust off before activating him.

Dodgers OF prospect Yusniel Diaz went 3-for-4 with two walks on Thursday for Double-A Tulsa.

It was Diaz's first game of the season, and it was a good one. The 21-year-old outfielder oozes fantasy potential thanks to his above-average hit tool and plus speed, and there's some power coming as well. He needs to show more consistency, but considering his age and inexperience, it's unfair to hold that against him just yet. Diaz could be a top-of-the-order hitter for the Dodgers before the end of the decade.

James Shields will start on Friday against the Astros.

Shields took the loss while making a relief appearance in the 14th inning of Wednesday's game against the A's, but he threw just 28 pitches and has apparently told manager Rick Renteria he's good to take his regular turn. The club had considered using Lucas Giolito on Friday, but he'll remain Saturday's starter.
Apr 20 - 2:38 PM

Rays activated INF Brad Miller from the 10-day disabled list.

Miller has been sidelined since April 8 because of a groin strain but played in a couple rehab games with no issues. He was 6-for-27 (.222) with one home run at the plate before going on the DL.
Apr 20 - 2:32 PM

Pirates RHP prospect Travis MacGregor threw six scoreless innings on Thursday for Low-A West Virginia.

MacGregor gave up just three hits, and while he did walk two, he compensated with six strikeouts. A second-round pick in 2016, MacGregor has been brought along slowly, but the 20-year-old right-hander now has a 0.73 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his first 12 innings of full-season baseball. He's still filling out his frame but he can get his fastball up to 97 mph, and he shows two solid -- but inconsistent -- offspeed pitches. He's nowhere close to a finished project, but this is another Pittsburgh hurler who offers some upside long-term.
Apr 20 - 2:30 PM

Rays designated INF/OF Brandon Snyder for assignment.

Snyder was just added to the roster earlier this week. He'll likely clear waivers and can opt for free agency if he wants.
