Athletics released LHP Brian Fuentes.

Fuentes cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week, which is no surprise given that he's still owed around $3 million for the rest of the season. The 36-year-old left-hander had an ugly 6.84 ERA and 18/10 K/BB ratio over 25 innings before the A's gave him the boot, but it shouldn't take too long for him to find a new home.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday that Domingo Santana (elbow) has seen little improvement and will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.

Santana has been limited to just 18 games since the beginning of May due to a shoulder and more recently an elbow issue. He's already missed two weeks in his current disabled list stint and it doesn't appear he's close to resuming baseball activities, let alone make a return. In addition to the injuries, Santana sports a pretty disappointing .234/.347/.391 batting line this season.

Jon Gray (shoulder) has been cleared to start Monday versus the Blue Jays after getting through a 14-pitch bullpen session Friday with no issues.

Gray had to be pulled from his last start because of shoulder fatigue, but it's apparently no big deal. He'll face a stiff test in going up against the tough Toronto offense at Coors Field.

Cubs manager Joe Madd0n said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is feeling better and it's "possible" the first baseman could return to the lineup Saturday.

Rizzo is sitting out a second straight game Friday and has missed three contests over the last couple weeks with back stiffness, but it appears he's making some progress. Kris Bryant is handling first base Friday, with Javier Baez at third.

Stephen Strasburg (back) is on track to start on Sunday versus the Brewers.

Strasburg was scratched from his last outing with an upper back strain, but he had two ribs popped back into place and is now feeling much better. He threw a light bullpen session Friday and should officially be cleared to start Sunday as long as he shows up to the ballpark Saturday feeling alright.

Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

CarGo tweaked his right wrist on a swing Thursday and had to be lifted from the game. It looks like a minor thing at this point, but he could need a few days off. Ryan Raburn is in right field.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Angels "are listening" on Yunel Escobar and the Giants are "among the teams that have expressed interest."

It could indicate that the Giants aren't expecting Matt Duffy (Achilles) back anytime soon. It's no surprise that the Angels are willing to move Escobar, as they're already 16 games out of first place and don't seem likely to close that gap. Escobar is making $7 million this season and the Halos have a $7 million option on him for 2017.

Jose Abreu is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday due to leg fatigue.

It will only be a one-day absence, as Abreu is expected back in there Saturday. Todd Frazier will play first base and Tyler Saladino is at third on Friday.
Jun 24 - 4:36 PM

Gregory Polanco is not in the Pirates' lineup Friday due to left leg discomfort.

The Pirates got Starling Marte (foot) back in the lineup Friday but now will be without Polanco. It's unclear how Polanco was injured, but it appears to be a day-to-day situation. Matt Joyce has taken his spot in right field.
Jun 24 - 4:10 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (wrist) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Cespedes missed just one start with a mild left wrist sprain. He was given a cortisone shot and is now ready to go, playing center field and batting third on Friday.
Jun 24 - 3:55 PM

Starling Marte (foot) is back in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

Marte hasn't started since leaving Tuesday's game with a sore foot. He's batting second and playing left field. The Pirates are also resting Josh Harrison, as Sean Rodriguez is handling second base.
Jun 24 - 3:40 PM

Pirates activated RHP Juan Nicasio from the restricted list.

Nicasio was away for about a week while dealing with a private family matter back in the Dominican Republic. The Pirates announced that the righty will be moved into the bullpen, likely for the remainder of the season. They haven't revealed yet who will start Sunday in Nicasio's place.
