Felix Hernandez posted his fifth shutout of the season Monday, allowing just five hits and one walk in a 1-0 win over the Twins.

He struck out five and hit a batter. Yes, it came against the Twins, but we're not sure anyone was going to get to King Felix in this one. His five shutouts are now two more than anyone in baseball, and he improves his second-half ERA to a ridiculous 1.23. Hernandez will try to keep it going this weekend against the Angels.

Mets activated SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the 10-day disabled list.

May 25 - 4:19 PM

Jacob deGrom's scheduled start Thursday against the Padres has been pushed back to Friday.

With storms in the forecast for Thursday night, the Mets don't want to risk wasting deGrom's turn with an abbreviated start. Instead, deGrom will start Friday's series opener at Pittsburgh. Rafael Montero will make a spot start Thursday at Citi Field, assuming the game goes on as planned.

Edwin Diaz got the ninth for the Mariners on Thursday and pitched a scoreless inning with a two-run lead for his eighth save.

Diaz seems to be back in the closer's role after just two appearances since losing the job last week. He's not a sure thing at this point and it'd certainly be for the best if he could go a couple of weeks without a blown save, but especially since no one else really stepped up, it should be fine to drop any other Seattle relievers in mixed leagues.

Jay Bruce (back) is in the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Padres.

Bruce sat out Wednesday after making an early exit Tuesday with stiffness in his back. It clearly wasn't anything serious. The veteran outfielder is hitting .250/.331/.513 with 11 home runs and 30 RBI in 41 games this season.

Cameron Maybin left Thursday's game against the Rays with soreness in his right knee.

Maybin was 1-for-3 before getting replaced in the bottom of the sixth inning. Hopefully it's nothing too serious because he's been in a terrific groove offensively over the last 10 days. Ben Revere took over in center field. Mike Trout started the game at DH.
May 25 - 3:54 PM

Carlos Correa is in the Astros' starting lineup on Thursday against the Tigers.

Correa was given a couple days off with a minor illness. He is starting at shortstop and batting cleanup on Thursday night against Detroit right-hander Justin Verlander.
May 25 - 3:38 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) could be activated ahead of Thursday night's game against the Padres.

Cabrera showed up at Citi Field on Thursday afternoon after going 2-for-5 on a two-game minor league rehab assignment with High-A Binghamton. The shortstop has been on the disabled list since May 13 because of lingering soreness in his left thumb. There should be something more official soon.
May 25 - 3:25 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) has been scratched from the Giants' lineup Thursday.

Nunez tweaked his left hamstring on Wednesday night and the Giants want to play it safe. It doesn't sound like something that will require a lengthy absence. Christian Arroyo is starting at third base now in the matinee game against the Cubs.
May 25 - 12:13 PM

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

It looks to be a routine day of rest. Alexi Amarista will start at second base and bat seventh for the Rockies against Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez.
May 25 - 11:10 AM

Cam Bedrosian (groin) is set to begin facing live hitters in the next day or two.

Bedrosian is working out at the Angels' spring training complex in Arizona and could head out on a minor league rehab assignment next week if everything continues to go smoothly. Bud Norris has done a surprisingly great job as the Angels' fill-in closer and Huston Street (shoulder) is due back from the disabled list soon, so Bedrosian might return to a seventh- or eighth-inning setup job. At least initially. He's been out since April 22 with a right groin strain.
May 25 - 10:55 AM

Jameson Taillon (cancer) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Thursday morning.

Taillon called it "more competitive" than his first 25-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday. The young right-hander is recovering from surgery for testicular cancer and seems to be making swift progress, though the Pirates have yet to map out a timetable for his return to the active roster. It's not worth speculating.
