Twins released 1B/OF Brock Peterson.

Peterson, 31, was batting just .186/.289/.351 at Triple-A Rochester. He'll now look to latch on elsewhere.
May 22 - 3:18 PM

Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

New A's coach Ron Washington is putting Semien through drills prior to Friday's game as he seeks to improve the youngster's defense, so it's no surprise he's not in the lineup. Andy Parrino is handling shortstop.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is "feeling much better" and it "may not be that much longer" before he returns.

Puig was shut down just over a week ago after having a setback with his left hamstring during his rehab assignment, but he's evidently made nice progress since then. The Dodgers have yet to reveal when the outfielder will re-start the rehab assignment, but it sounds like it could happen shortly.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that Cuban right-hander Norge has defected from his native country and is seeking a Major League contract.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan is hearing that the Dodgers are the "early favorites" to sign the right-hander. Passan also notes that "many believe (Ruiz is) the best pitcher in Cuba" and that he's a "short right-hander but will get significant bank." Ruiz turned 21 just over a month ago.

Adam Lind is not in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

He's receiving a day of rest with the Braves throwing lefty Alex Wood. Jason Rogers is starting at first base.
May 22 - 2:29 PM

Nationals activated RHP Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list.

Janssen has been out all season while battling a shoulder issue. He figures to be eased back into things initially but should eventually find himself as one of the main setup men for closer Drew Storen.
May 22 - 2:27 PM

Nationals placed LHP Sammy Solis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 18, with left shoulder inflammation.

Solis has had shoulder issues in the past, so hopefully this isn't anything serious. Casey Janssen (shoulder) has been activated from the DL to take Solis' spot in the bullpen.
May 22 - 2:25 PM

Will Smith has been suspended eight games by Major League Baseball for having a foreign substance on his arm during Thursday's game in Atlanta.

It seems like a pretty harsh ruling. Smith has officially appealed the suspension and might be able to get it reduced a bit. He will be allowed to continue pitching in the meantime.
