Rays optioned INF Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham.

The 25-year-old infielder went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season on Friday, but became a roster casualty as the Rays needed a fresh arm in the bullpen. While he has shown flashes, he's hitting just .224/.266/.459 on the year and could benefit from everyday at-bats at Triple-A.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Friday that Alex Wood will make his next scheduled start on Wednesday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Wood was scratched from his scheduled start on Friday due to a stomach virus. Gonzalez also noted that Wood could be available out of the bullpen the next couple of days.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Avisail Garcia's knee injury could cause him to miss a couple of games.

The inflammation in his right knee has been an ongoing issue for Garcia, and it looks like it could cost him another couple of games this weekend. J.B. Shuck got the start in his place on Friday and could be in line for additional playing time while Garcia is sidelined.

Chris Archer improved to 5-4 on the year after holding the Athletics to one run over 5 1/3 innings on Friday.

The only run scored on a solo homer from Stephen Vogt in the fourth inning. Archer gave up six hits and four walks while striking out eight batters, so his pitch count added up quickly. He has now walked four batters in three out of his last five starts, but still owns a quality 2.40 ERA and 70/20 K/BB ratio in 60 innings over 10 starts.

Scott Kazmir gave up three runs (two earned) over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rays on Friday.

The only damage was a three-run homer by Evan Longoria in the bottom of the fifth inning, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. Kazmir struck out four and walked three in the loss and remains winless over his last seven starts. He'll try to snap the streak in a start against the Tigers next week.
May 22 - 11:31 PM

Brad Boxberger notched a one-out save in Friday's 5-2 win over the Athletics.

Ernesto Frieri went into the top of the ninth with a four-run lead, but he was pulled after allowing two hits and a sacrifice fly. However, Boxberger struck out Stephen Vogt swinging to lock down the victory. He's 13-for-13 in save chances this season to go along with a 1.10 ERA and 24/6 K/BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings. Jake McGee is back from the DL, but Rays manager Kevin Cash is still going to give Boxberger opportunities.
May 22 - 11:30 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer, a walk, and his first stolen base of the season Friday against the Athletics.

Longoria has now hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games, but his batting average has actually gone down from .283 to .282 during that time. He currently has five home runs, which puts him on pace for his worst power season since his injury-plagued season in 2012.
May 22 - 11:29 PM

Steven Souza smacked a solo homer and stole a base against the Athletics on Friday.

Souza also drew a walk and scored twice. The 26-year-old is hitting just .229 on the year and has struck out in 38 percent of his plate appearances, but he's remained useful in fantasy leagues with seven home runs and seven stolen bases.
