Emilio Bonifacio is making his Braves debut on Friday, playing right field and hitting eighth against the Padres.

Bonifacio is likely to be used as a super-utility type, seeing work all over the diamond while finding his way into the lineup on a fairly regular basis. His speed continues to make him a strong fantasy option.
Aug 1 - 7:02 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that Jim Henderson (shoulder) isn't ready to return to the bullpen.

Henderson has been on a minor league rehab assignment, but instead of rejoining the Brewers, he will remain on the disabled list and head to Arizona to continue strengthening his shoulder.
Aug 1 - 6:50 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Friday that Jesse Chavez has been moved back to the bullpen.

The 30-year-old gave the A's a tremendous boost over his first 21 starts, compiling a 3.44 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 119/41 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings. He'll function in a middle relief role for the A's while Jason Hammel maintains the final spot in the rotation.
Aug 1 - 6:42 PM

Cubs recalled INF Chris Valaika from Triple-A Iowa.

He'll take the place of Felix Doubront on the active roster, who was placed on the disabled list on Friday. The utility infielder was hitting .278/.344/.423 with 10 homers and 50 RBI over 102 games at Iowa. He'll function in a reserve role for the Cubs.
Aug 1 - 6:39 PM

Adam Lind (foot) could begin a rehab assignment early- to mid-next week.

He should only need a few rehab games before being activated. Lind is expected to beat Edwin Encarnacion (quad) back from the disabled list. He's been out since early July with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.
Aug 1 - 5:58 PM

Brett Lawrie (finger) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin on Friday.

Lawrie is expected to be there for at least a week and will play both third and second base before the club makes a decision on where to put him once activated. He's been out since late June with a fractured right index finger.
Aug 1 - 5:57 PM

Jon Jay is not in Friday's lineup due to a sore wrist.

It explains why Peter Bourjos is getting a rare start versus a right-hander Friday. Jay's ailment looks to be a day-to-day situation, so expect him back in there sometime over the weekend.
Aug 1 - 5:45 PM

Matt Cain (elbow) is expected to undergo season-ending surgery.

Reports had indicated earlier that he would hold off for now in a long shot hope to pitch later this season, but it sounds like he'll go under the knife soon. Cain has dealt with bone chips in his right elbow for 10 years and it's finally causing enough pain to where he can't pitch. The rehab will last three months, so he'll be fine for spring training next season.
