Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Michael Cuddyer will rest one game over the weekend.
The Mets want to ensure that Cuddyer remains healthy through the grind of the MLB season, so they'll give him plenty of rest as needed throughout the year. Make sure to check lineups where daily changes are allowed, as he'll sit on Sunday if he's in there on Saturday.
Yunel Escobar (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Saturday.
Escobar said that he felt okay on Saturday and remains optimistic that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, but the Nationals want to make sure before making a determination.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Angels and Josh Hamilton are in talks to resolve their dispute.
The two sides are reportedly exploring multiple avenues that include trades, though nothing is believed to be close. Hamilton meanwhile continues to rehab his shoulder and isn't expected to return to the diamond until sometime in May.
Kolten Wong is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday.
It's nothing more than a day of rest for Wong who should be back in there for Sunday's series finale. Pete Kozma will make his first start of the season in his place and will bat eighth against opposing right-hander Homer Bailey.
Derek Norris is not in the Padres starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cubs.
It's a routine day of rest for Norris being a day game after a night game, but it's also noteworthy that it will be the second straight time that Will Nieves has caught for Tyson Ross. Expect to see Norris back in there on Sunday.
Trevor Plouffe is not in the Twins starting lineup on Saturday.
Eduardo Nunez is getting the start in his place at third base and will bat eighth for the Twins against Danny Salazar and the Indians. Plouffe should return to his place at the hot corner for Sunday's series finale.
Indians optioned RHP Austin Adams to Triple-A Columbus.
Adams has already been shuffled back and forth from Columbus a couple of times early in the season, and may continue to do so anytime the Indians need an extra arm.
Indians recalled RHP Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus.
Salazar will make his season debut against the Twins on Saturday. Regardless of how he performs in that start, manager Terry Francona has already confirmed that he'll remain in the Tribe's rotation moving forward. He's a terrific target in daily leagues on Saturday and an intriguing addition in all mixed leagues.
