Blake Swihart is in the Red Sox lineup as the designated hitter for Saturday's showdown against the Braves.

Red Sox' manager Alex Cora said that Swihart would get more run after Hanley Ramirez was DFA'd on Friday, and it looks like he's true to his word. Swihart is batting eighth against Braves' southpaw Sean Newcomb on Saturday afternoon. With his catcher eligibility, he could be an interesting option in AL-only leagues and deeper two-catcher mixed leagues if he does indeed receive regular playing time.

Dustin Pedroia will make his 2018 debut on Saturday against the Braves.

Pedroia was activated from the disabled list on Friday but didn't appear in the game. He's starting at second base and batting sixth for the Red Sox against Sean Newcomb and the Braves on Saturday.

Nick Senzel continues to work out at the Reds' spring training complex in Arizona while recovering from vertigo.

The Reds' top prospect has been taking batting practice and fielding ground balls without issue. He's expected to soon receive clearance to begin playing in extended spring training games. The 22-year-old should still debut with the Reds at some point this season, but this health issue has certainly pushed that timeline back.

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) is likely to make at least one more minor league rehab start after he struggled in Friday's outing at Triple-A Louisville.

The right-hander is eligible to be activated from the disabled list on Monday, but the Reds may want him to make another start in the minors after surrendering six runs over five innings in Friday's start. DeSclafani hasn't pitched in the big leagues since September of 2016.

Gary Sanchez (calf) went 1-for-3 and also drew a walk in his return to the Yankees' lineup on Friday.

Sanchez sat out Wednesday's game after leaving Tuesday's contest with cramping in his calf. The hard-hitting backstop leads all catchers with 33 RBI on the season and is slashing .230/.333/.539 with 12 home runs.

Noah Syndergaard yielded three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Syndergaard allowed six hits — including a solo homer to Travis Shaw in the second inning — while striking out eight and walking none. He was only at 78 pitches through six innings, but Mets manager Mickey Callaway elected to have Jose Reyes pinch hit for him with a runner on first base and two outs in the top of the seventh. Reyes, who has been one of the worst players in baseball this season, grounded out. Syndergaard holds a 3.06 ERA and 76/13 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings through 11 starts. He’ll get the Braves next on the road.

Junior Guerra gave up two runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Mets.

Guerra surrendered a solo homer to Amed Rosario in the third inning and another solo shot to Michael Conforto one inning later. He fanned three and walked none, so he was much more efficient that his last start against the Twins. Guerra has been a nice surprise for the Brewers this season, posting a 2.98 ERA over nine starts. He’s allowed two earned runs or fewer in seven of them, so he's been a useful matchup play in fantasy leagues. Up next is an NL Central showdown with the Cardinals.
May 26 - 1:44 AM

Corey Knebel gave up one run over two-thirds of an inning and blew a save Friday against the Mets.

Knebel retired the first two batters he faced but he then issued back-to-back walks to Michael Conforto and Devin Mesoraco before Jose Bautista tied the game with a single. The Brewers’ closer then walked Luis Guillorme — his third walk of the inning — before Jeremy Jeffress escaped the frame by inducing a grounder from Amed Rosario. The Brewers would go on to win the game in 10 innings. Knebel had his issues with walks last year, but he actually came into Friday’s appearance with just two walks in 8 2/3 innings this season. Perhaps the bigger concern is that Knebel just isn’t missing as many bats as he did last year.
