Buster Posey is not in the Giants starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Diamondbacks.
It's nothing more than a day of rest for the hard-hitting backstop. Hector Sanchez will get the start behind the plate and hit fifth for the Giants against Mike Bolsinger.
Ryan Hanigan was scratched from Friday's lineup with soreness in his left side.
Hanigan hasn't played since Tuesday, so it's possible he's been nursing the ailment for a few days. Jose Molina will catch Chris Archer instead.
Hanley Ramirez is not expected to play before the All-Star break due to a flare-up with his arthritic right shoulder.
Ramirez, who received another injection in the shoulder following Thursday's game, missed a handful of games last month with the same ailment. The Dodgers are hoping that he'll be ready to go for the start of the second half, but it's no guarantee. Miguel Rojas is handling shortstop while Ramirez is sidelined.
Miguel Montero has been added to the All-Star roster as an injury replacement for Yadier Molina (thumb).
It will be his second All-Star appearance and first since 2011. Montero has batted .265/.346/.419 with 11 home runs and 52 RBI for the Diamondbacks this season.
Matt Lindstrom (ankle) will throw a 25-35 pitch bullpen session Saturday.
It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since May ankle surgery. The White Sox are hoping Lindstrom will be ready to rejoin their bullpen by late August.
Mariners recalled 1B Justin Smoak from Triple-A Tacoma.
The M's sent Smoak to Triple-A earlier this month after he finished his rehab assignment, but they need him now with Michael Saunders (oblique) out. He should see the occasional start at first base and/or DH.
Mariners placed OF Michael Saunders on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.
Saunders suffered the injury during Thursday's game. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but typically oblique strains put players on the shelf for at least three weeks. Justin Smoak has replaced Saunders on the roster.
CC Sabathia (knee) has postponed Monday's appointment with Dr. James Andrews and will see Dr. Neal ElAttrache and Dr. Keith Meister first.
The anticipation is that Sabathia probably needs microfracture surgery on his right knee, but he understandably wants as many opinions as possible before making a decision. If he does need an operation, obviously his season would be over.
