Garrett Richards (fatigue) has been scratched from Friday's start against the Rays.
Richards has been battling fatigue and dehydration all week. He was always a long shot to pitch on Friday. Cory Rasmus will start in what should be a bullpen game for the Angels. Richards is day-to-day.
Jackie Bradley (finger) is in the Red Sox's starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.
He was truly a game-time decision as the Red Sox waited until an hour before the game to release their lineup. Bradley tested his finger out in batting practice and will give it a go. He injured his finger Wednesday when Dioner Navarro hit him on a pickoff attempt at third base. Bradley will bat ninth against right-hander Erik Johnson.
Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) has not resumed throwing yet.
Iglesias was scratched from his start Sunday because of a right shoulder impingement and was placed on the disabled list shortly after. He won't be ready to come off the DL when he first becomes eligible on May 11. Tim Adleman will continue to occupy his place in the starting rotation.
The Yankees will wait for team doctor Chris Ahmad to examine Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) before establishing a timetable for his return.
Rodriguez strained his hamstring Tuesday against Baltimore and landed on the disabled list a day later. Expect a host of players to fill the void at DH. Carlos Beltran will start there on Thursday.
The Nationals are expected to activate Ben Revere (oblique) on Friday.
Revere could have played Thursday but manager Dusty Baker didn't want to risk it in the cold weather. He'll take batting practice and go through a normal pregame routine. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth both stand to lose playing time with Revere healthy again.
Hunter Pence is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Rockies.
It's a maintenance day for Pence, who has appeared in all 29 games this season. He'll be available off the bench. With Pence getting a breather, Gregor Blanco will start in right field and bat eighth.
Fox Sports' Jon Morosi expects the Cardinals to "find creative ways" to keep Aledmys Diaz in the lineup when Jhonny Peralta returns from his thumb injury.
Peralta should return early next month. Diaz has gotten off to an impossibly hot start, hitting .381 with a .679 slugging percentage through 26 games. Peralta was no slouch last year either, batting .275 with 17 HR and 71 RBI. Morosi said the Cardinals are open to using Peralta at both third and first base, which would allow Diaz to stay put at shortstop. Diaz is able to play any infield position, so manager Mike Matheny shouldn't have to rack his brain too hard to have both players in the lineup most days.
Pirates optioned INF Jason Rogers to Triple-A Indianapolis.
The Pirates haven't announced a corresponding roster move though it's possible the team will activate Jung Ho Kang (knee) from the disabled list. Rogers struggled mightily in his short time in the major leagues, collecting just one hit in 13 at-bats. He should get more chances later this year.
