Chase Headley is back in the Padres' starting lineup on Saturday night against the Giants.
Headley has been limited to pinch-hitting duties for much of this week because of a mild right biceps strain. He is batting fifth and playing third base Saturday.
Jenrry Mejia (blister) has been cleared to start Monday in the Mets' series-opener against the Cardinals.
Mejia made it through a bullpen session Saturday without being bothered by the blister on his right middle finger. The 24-year-old is 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA in three starts this year, but St. Louis is a tough fantasy matchup.
David Ortiz went 2-for-4 and hit his third homer as the Red Sox topped the Orioles 4-2 on Saturday.
Ortiz was also robbed of a homer by Adam Eaton on Thursday before getting Friday off, so perhaps he's starting to warm up at the plate. Today's homer gave him 40 in 200 career games against Baltimore. That's actually slightly below his career rate (he has 394 homers in 1,786 games against everyone else).
Felix Doubront pitched 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball in a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday.
Doubront thought he had a strikeout to finish the seventh, going to far as to jump off the mound. However, the pitch was ruled a ball and Doubront ended up walking Nick Markakis, which got him lifted from the game and cost him a win. The Red Sox went on to break a 2-2 tie with two runs in the bottom of the seventh and prevailed 4-2. That was too late for Doubront, though.
Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) will play catch on Sunday.
Hellickson was shut down for three days because of light soreness in his surgically-repaired right elbow. The Rays aren't considering it a major setback and are still hoping that he can return around late May.
Desmond Jennings will be limited to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday and Sunday due to groin discomfort.
Jennings is aiming to return to the Rays' starting lineup for Tuesday's series-opener against the Twins. He has a cool .825 OPS in 17 games this season.
Jordy Mercer (ankle) may be available off the bench Saturday night against the Brewers.
Mercer was removed from Friday's game after getting spiked in the ankle while trying to turn a doubleplay in the fourth inning. He did not suffer a major injury.
Koji Uehara issued his first walk since last Aug. 5, but he struck out the other three Orioles he faced for a save Saturday.
Uehara went his last 23 regular-season innings, 13 2/3 postseason innings and then six innings this year without walking a batter before throwing ball four to Matt Wieters today. His current 11/1 K/BB ratio this season is actually worse than his mark from last year (101/9) or 2012 (43/3).
