Jered Weaver bounced back from his worst start of the season in Wednesday's 7-3 win in Boston, allowing two runs on seven hits in seven innings of work.

Weaver struck out five and walked only one as he improved to 16-3. The 16-win campaign is the third of Weaver's career, while he's now just two off his career-best 18 victories from a season ago. The owner of a 2.74 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 113/33 K/BB ratio through 148 frames, he'll get the Red Sox again next Tuesday, this time at home.

Denard Span (concussion) could return from the concussion disabled list on Saturday.

Span first has to make it through rehab games on Thursday and Friday. He was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list April 12 after a collision with Braves infielder Dan Uggla. All reports so far have been good.

Doug Fister (lat) headed to extended spring training in Viera, Florida on Wednesday.

Fister will begin working on a five-day throwing schedule, beginning with two simulated innings on Thursday. He'll then throw three simulated innings five days after, and a rehab assignment could follow that workout. Fister should join the Nationals around early May and will be a front-line fantasy starter once he is activated.

Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and declared himself "ready."

According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, manager Fredi Gonzalez was "noncommittal" about using Kimbrel on Wednesday night because of the cold weather in Philadelphia. Kimbrel has been unavailable the past two games with mild shoulder soreness.

Joe Kelly has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain and is headed back to St. Louis for further tests.

Kelly suffered the injury Wednesday in Milwaukee while trying to beat out a groundball to first base. He is likely to be placed on the 15-day disabled list, and the Cardinals will now have to dip into some of their starting pitching depth. Carlos Martinez could be an option, but Tyler Lyons started for Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday and is probably the more logical short-term fill-in candidate because Martinez has been making appearances in a major league setup role.

George Springer is batting second in his major league debut on Wednesday night against the Royals.

Houston will throw the ultra-talented young outfielder right into the fire. Springer was batting .353/.459/.647 with three home runs in 13 games this year at Triple-A Oklahoma City and is a must-have in all standard fantasy leagues. The 24-year-old compiled a .959 OPS, 65 homers, 85 steals, and 207 RBI in 284 minor league games.

Wily Peralta held the Cardinals to one run over 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 5-1 Brewers win.

The dominant performance pushed Milwaukee to an 11-4 record and a two-game lead over the Cardinals in the National League Central standings. Peralta had his sinker and slider working, fanning three batters and scattering six hits over his 6 1/3 frames. He issued just one walk. The 24-year-old right-hander will bring a 2-0 record and 1.96 ERA into his next start at home against the Padres. That's a juicy fantasy matchup.

Mike Napoli (finger) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide. He's expected to avoid the disabled list but may need a few more days off. Daniel Nava is starting at first base Wednesday in Chicago.
Apr 16 - 4:10 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Pedroia will lead off and play second base in the second game of a three-game set at U.S. Cellular Field. He was diagnosed Monday with inflammation in his left wrist and given a cortisone shot to help him through the discomfort.
Apr 16 - 4:06 PM

Masahiro Tanaka shut out the Cubs for eight innings as the Yankees grabbed a 3-0 win in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Tanaka was scheduled to pitch on Tuesday but the game was called because of rain. He looked well-rested on Wednesday afternoon, yielding just two hits and one walk over his eight shutout frames while racking up 10 strikeouts. It was Tanaka's most dominant start so far in the major leagues, and he'll carry an outstanding 2-0 record, 2.05 ERA, and 0.77 WHIP into his next scheduled outing against the Rays.
Apr 16 - 4:04 PM

Mariners recalled INF Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma.

Franklin earned the promotion after batting .395/.469/.744 with four homers and 13 RBI over his first 11 Triple-A contests this season. While he has yet to play the outfield in any professional game, Franklin played there some in spring training and the rumor is that he could see some time there while up with the big club. He'd probably have to be used some in the outfield to have much fantasy value, as there's really no room for him to play anywhere else.
Apr 16 - 3:47 PM

Mariners placed OF/1B Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a right hamstring strain.

Morrison actually suffered the injury on Monday before he took an at-bat or went to his position. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined. LoMo was off to a .150/.227/.150 start with no homers and no RBI in eight games so far this season.
