Ryan Lavarnway has elected free agency.
He was designated for assignment earlier in the week to make room on the active roster for Steve Clevenger. With so many teams around the league starved for depth behind the plate, he should be able to find a suitable opportunity elsewhere.
Yankees placed OF Slade Heathcott on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade two quadriceps strain.
Heathcott sustained the injury on Wednesday and was scratched from Thursday's lineup. Ramon Flores will be recalled from Triple-A on Saturday to take his place on the Yankees roster. Chris Young should see the bulk of the playing time in center field in his absence.
Robinson Cano (illness) remains out of the Mariners starting lineup on Friday.
Cano got the night off on Thursday as he was dealing with a stomach issue and apparently is still under the weather. Willie Bloomquist will fill in at second base.
Erick Aybar (hamstring) felt much better on Friday and expects to return to the lineup on Saturday.
While he isn't in the lineup on Friday, he appears to have avoided any serious injury. Look for him to return at some point over the weekend.
Mariners placed LHP Joe Beimel on the restricted list.
He will be away from the team for a day or two to attend his son's high school graduation. Lucas Luetge has been recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
Mariners recalled LHP Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma.
He will serve as an extra arm in the bullpen for a couple of days while Joe Beimel tends to a personal matter. Luetge will work in muddle relief.
Eduardo Rodriguez will start next Wednesday against the Twins.
Rodriguez was electric in his major league debut Thursday, spinning 7 2/3 shutout innings against the Rangers with seven strikeouts, two walks and just three hits allowed. The Red Sox will go with six starters for at least one more turn through the rotation, but Rodriguez isn't going anywhere as long as he keeps pitching well.
Josh Harrison is not in the Pirates' lineup Friday.
It appears to simply be a routine day off. Jung Ho Kang is at third base Friday, with Jordy Mercer handling shortstop.
