The Blue Jays are expected to recall Juan Francisco from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

With Adam Lind likely heading for a stint on the disabled list, Francisco was pulled from Friday's minor league game and is likely heading to join the Blue Jays. It's unclear how much playing time he'll see, but is certainly worth a look in AL-only formats for his dual eligibility and power potential.

Jason Barlett announced his retirement from professional baseball on Friday.

The club has reportedly asked him to reconsider, but the veteran infielder is expected to file his paperwork with the league. He appeared in just three games before hitting the disabled list with an ankle injury, going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated Friday that the team will continue to employ a committee to close games.

With Luke Gregerson blowing a save in his last outing, and Jim Johnson pitching well in middle relief, there had been some speculation that Johnson would regain the cloer's role, but that doesn't appear to be the reality just yet. Look for Gregerson, Sean Doolittle, Dan Otero, Ryan Cook and perhaps even Johnson to share the load in the late innings.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Casey Janssen (back) will miss at least the next two weeks due to a strained muscle in his abdomen/lower back.

It's a tough break for the Jays closer, who was hoping to return to the team in mid-April. Sergio Santos is serving as the ninth-inning man in his absence, but suffered an ugly blown save in his last outing.

Casey Kelly (elbow) is scheduled to throw in an extended spring training game on Monday.

If all goes well with that outing, he'll be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. He's working his way back from Tommy John surgery, but as long as he continues to progress, he could be looking at a return to the Padres before the All-Star break.

Mets acquired RHP Zachary Thornton and a player to be named from the Mets in exchange for 1B Ike Davis.

The 25-year-old right-hander spent the 2013 season between the rotation and the bullpen across three minor league levels, compiling a 2.63 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 90/12 K/BB ratio in 75 1/3 innings. With the toll that injuries have taken in the Mets bullpen, he could quickly work his way into the mix with the big league club.

Pirates acquired 1B Ike Davis from the Mets in exchange for RHP Zachary Thornton and a player to be named.

The 27-year-old slugger has fallen off after a breakthrough 2012 campaign where he smashed 32 homers and drove home 90 runs. The change of scenery, and the likelihood that he receives everyday at-bats, should be a tremendous boost to his fantasy value affords him the chance to get his career back on track.
Apr 18 - 7:22 PM

Buster Posey is not in the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

Posey took a foul tip off the shoulder during Thursday's contest, but was due for a day off anyways according to manager Bruce Bochy. Expect him back behind the dish on Saturday.
