Gordon Beckham isn't playing Friday with Triple-A Charlotte due to soreness in his surgically-repaired left hand.
Beckham had surgery in mid-April to remove the hamate bone from his hand, so the White Sox don't want to take any chances. It isn't a major setback, but the White Sox could also have him sit out Saturday just to be on the safe side.
Mariners designated INF Robert Andino for assignment.
Andino gets the boot after batting just .184 (14-for-76) with a 27/7 K/BB ratio in 29 games. Carlos Triunfel has been promoted from Triple-A Tacoma to replace him on the active roster, but the move could set the wheels in motion for Brad Miller to eventually make his way to the majors.
Mariners recalled INF Carlos Triunfel from Triple-A Tacoma.
He'll replace Robert Andino, who has been designated for assignment. Triunfel, 23, was batting .300/.351/.476 with four home runs, 19 RBI, four stolen bases, and an .828 OPS over 44 games this season in Triple-A. He's not worth considering in most fantasy leagues.
Kevin Youkilis (back) will play in an extended spring training game Saturday.
Mark Teixeira is also slated to play as he works his way back from a wrist injury. Youkilis has been sidelined for nearly a month with a lumbar spine strain, but he could rejoin the Yankees late next week if he can avoid setbacks.
Pablo Sandoval (illness) is back in Friday's lineup.
Sandoval didn't start Wednesday due to illness, but grounded out in a pinch hit appearance. He should be fine moving forward.
Padres recalled LHP Tom Layne from Triple-A Tucson.
Layne, 28, had a 4.00 ERA and 13/12 K/BB ratio in 18 innings over 19 appearances this season in Triple-A. He'll operate in middle relief.
Jed Lowrie (foot) is out of the Athletics' lineup again Friday.
Lowrie hasn't played since he was hit in the right foot by Yu Darvish on Tuesday. X-rays came back negative, but he's still dealing with some soreness. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Mark Teixeira (wrist) expects to play rehab games with Double-A Trenton next Wednesday and Thursday.
Teixeira has participated in simulated games this week and will test himself in extended spring training on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. He'll be reevaluated after his two rehab games with Trenton, but there's a chance that he could be activated from the disabled list late next week if all goes well. Teixeira has been sidelined since early March with a torn tendon sheath in his wrist.
