Red Sox manager John Farrell said Brian Johnson is a "strong candidate" to start Saturday against the Mariners.

Johnson struggled in his one start this season at the major league level, but the 26-year-old left-hander owns a decent 2.82 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 37/17 K/BB ratio over 44 2/3 innings (seven starts) this season with Triple-A Pawtucket. He's been in the minors since April 19.

Jameson Taillon (cancer) threw 25 pitches off a mound Tuesday.

Taillon has made encouraging progress from his May 8 surgery for suspected testicular cancer, though Pirates trainer Todd Tomczyk cautioned Tuesday that this is still very much a day-to-day situation. There's no real timetable for Taillon's return to the active major league roster.
May 23 - 4:41 PM

Pablo Sandoval (knee) is out of the lineup at Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday due to illness.

That will delay his return to the Red Sox active roster by a couple of days. Sandoval needs to play back-to-back minor league games before the club considers activating him off the disabled list. He's been out since April 24 because of a right knee strain.
May 23 - 4:38 PM

Brock Holt (vertigo) will visit a specialist in Pittsburgh sometime this week.

Holt continues to experience vertigo symptoms and has officially been pulled off his minor league rehab assignment. The utilityman has been on the disabled list since April 21 and remains out indefinitely.
May 23 - 4:35 PM

Marco Hernandez is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left shoulder Friday.

And the subsequent rehab will take several months, likely stretching into the offseason. Hernandez injured his left shoulder during a May 3 game against the Orioles.
May 23 - 4:32 PM

Brad Miller (abdomen) won't be ready for activation when first eligible on May 26.

Miller took infield practice on Tuesday, but it was a relatively light workout and he still hasn't been cleared to run. Out since May 16 because of a lower abdominal strain, he'll aim to return to the the Rays' active roster sometime next week.
May 23 - 4:28 PM

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports that the Giants are selling Chris Marrero's rights to the Orix Buffaloes in Japan.

Marrero earned a spot on the Giants' Opening Day roster with a massive showing in the Cactus League, but he was designated by assignment before the end of April after batting just .132/.171/.211 over 41 major league plate appearances. The 28-year-old former first-round pick should find success in Nippon Professional Baseball.
May 23 - 4:25 PM

Cole Hamels (oblique) played catch Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

A positive first step for the rehabbing left-hander, who has been out since May 2 with a strained right oblique. Hamels is not expected to return to the Rangers' rotation until early July.
