Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Dillon Gee will undergo potentially season-ending surgery Friday in St. Louis to repair artery damage in his right shoulder.

Doctors were able to dissolve a blood clot in Gee's shoulder, but they determined that his artery was damaged, and the right-hander has opted to undergo surgery rather than use blood thinners. It's a shame, as Gee was pitching well this season with a 4.10 ERA and 97/29 K/BB ratio over 109 2/3 innings, but it's simply something he must do for his health. He'll be allowed to resume throwing in 6-8 weeks and could make it back in late September, but the Mets appear more focused on getting him ready for the 2013 season.

Troy Tulowitzki clobbered a pair of solo home runs off Cole Hamels on Friday, powering the Rockies to a 4-1 victory over the Phillies.

Tulo got the Rockies on the board with his solo blast in the first inning and repeated the feat in the third inning. He also collected a pair of singles, finishing the night 4-for-4 with two runs scored and a pair of RBI. The oft-injured shortstop is now hitting .285/.303/.456 with four long balls and 20 RBI on the season.

Chad Bettis was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Phillies, allowing just two hits over eight scoreless innings.

The right-hander punched out eight in the impressive outing and didn't issue a walk. He has been nothing short of spectacular in his last two outings, allowing just two runs over 15 1/3 innings and posting a 15/2 K/BB ratio. While he obviously won't continue at this pace and pitches his home games at Coors Field, he could be worth a look as a streaming option in NL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

Mariners placed LHP James Paxton on the 15-day disabled list with a strained tendon in his finger.

The young southpaw was removed from his start on Thursday with the issue. It's unclear at the moment how long he'll be sidelined, but the Mariners should have an update on his status soon. Domonic Leone has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster.
May 29 - 8:12 PM

Stephen Strasburg was removed from Friday's outing against the Reds with an apparent shoulder injury.

He faced just five batters before departing with the team trainer. The right-hander obviously hasn't been right all season, and a trip to the disabled list looks increasingly likely.
May 29 - 8:03 PM

Travis d'Arnaud's (finger) return from the disabled list will be delayed due to a bone bruise in his wrist.

It's not clear at this point how he suffered the injury or how long it will set him back. D'Arnaud had been slated for activation from the disabled list next week. He's been on the shelf since April 20 with a fractured right pinkie finger.
May 29 - 5:36 PM

Erick Aybar (hamstring) is not in the Angels' lineup Friday.

Aybar tweaked his left hamstring during Thursday's contest. He's not expected to require a stint on the disabled list, but he could need a few days off. Taylor Featherston is at shortstop in his place.
May 29 - 5:20 PM

Avisail Garcia (knee) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Garcia hasn't played since aggravating his right knee injury during Monday's game. He is progressing, though, as he did some running and will hit and take flyballs during batting practice before the game. It sounds like he could be back in the lineup at some point over the weekend. J.B. Shuck is in right field Friday.
May 29 - 4:50 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Matt Wieters (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list on June 5.

He's eligible to be activated on June 4, but it appears the O's will have Wieters join them in Cleveland rather than a day earlier in Houston. Showalter added that the catcher will have no physical restrictions when he returns, so it sounds like fantasy owners can count on him being in the lineup regularly.
May 29 - 4:38 PM

Cardinals activated OF Jon Jay from the 15-day disabled list.

Jay missed the last couple weeks with tendinitis in his surgically-repaired left wrist. He's not in Friday's lineup and with Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos playing well, Jay will likely have to share the center field job.
May 29 - 4:34 PM

Johnny Cueto (elbow) will not be ready to start on Sunday against the Nationals as hoped.

It doesn't appear that Cueto has had another setback, but rather the Reds just want to give him some more time. They're hoping he'll be ready to take the ball sometime during the series with the Phillies that begins next Tuesday. Michael Lorenzen will start Sunday.
May 29 - 3:44 PM

Steven Souza (wrist) is back in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Souza hasn't played since spraining his left wrist in a home plate collision on Sunday. He's really struggled of late with just four hits in his last 26 at-bats.
