Rays activated INF Sean Rodriguez from the 15-day disabled list.

Rodriguez reportedly punched a locker when he was demoted to Triple-A Durham last month, and still isn't completely recovered from the injury. The Rays will use him primarily as a defensive replacement down the stretch, so he doesn't figure to have a prominent role.

Jung Ho Kang (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

The Pirates have already cleared a spot for him by optioning Jason Rogers to Triple-A Indianapolis. Kang struggled during his rehab assignment, hitting just .150 over 40 at-bats. The Pirates plan on easing him into action with David Freese still making occasional starts at third base. Kang hasn't played for the Pirates since injuring his knee on a hard slide by Chris Coghlan back on September 17.

Hunter Pence is dealing with back tightness.

That would explain his absence from Thursday's starting lineup. He's hoping to return on Friday. Pence has gotten off to a strong start, hitting .279 with five homers and 23 RBI through 29 games.

The Twins have placed left-hander Tommy Milone on waivers, per Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.

Casey Fien was also waived. Milone was demoted to the bullpen last week after going winless in his first four starts with a 5.79 ERA. His lone relief outing went just as poorly as Milone scattered two hits and three runs in just 3 1/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to Houston. The 29-year-old can't reject a minor league assignment if he clears waivers.
May 5 - 8:31 PM

Garrett Richards (fatigue) has been scratched from Friday's start against the Rays.

Richards has been battling fatigue and dehydration all week. He was always a long shot to pitch on Friday. Cory Rasmus will start in what should be a bullpen game for the Angels. Richards is day-to-day.
May 5 - 7:34 PM

The Nationals are expected to activate Ben Revere (oblique) on Friday.

Revere could have played Thursday but manager Dusty Baker didn't want to risk it in the cold weather. He'll take batting practice and go through a normal pregame routine. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth both stand to lose playing time with Revere healthy again.

Fox Sports' Jon Morosi expects the Cardinals to "find creative ways" to keep Aledmys Diaz in the lineup when Jhonny Peralta returns from his thumb injury.

Peralta should return early next month. Diaz has gotten off to an impossibly hot start, hitting .381 with a .679 slugging percentage through 26 games. Peralta was no slouch last year either, batting .275 with 17 HR and 71 RBI. Morosi said the Cardinals are open to using Peralta at both third and first base, which would allow Diaz to stay put at shortstop. Diaz is able to play any infield position, so manager Mike Matheny shouldn't have to rack his brain too hard to have both players in the lineup most days.
May 5 - 6:33 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) expects to play Friday against the Nationals.

Wrist discomfort has kept Heyward out of the lineup since Sunday. He's expected to partake in Thursday's batting practice and see how he feels afterwards. Heyward has gotten off to a slow start (.211, 0 HR, 13 RBI) but he did the same thing last season before setting career-highs in both batting average (.293) and steals (23).
May 5 - 5:26 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is back in the White Sox's lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

He missed four games with a strained hamstring. Garcia will bat seventh and serve as the DH. Jerry Sands, who filled in during Garcia's short absence, will return to the bench. Garcia is only hitting .214 this year with a disappointing .291 on base percentage.
May 5 - 4:53 PM

Jean Segura is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Thursday versus the Marlins.

Segura missed a few games with a minor hip issue. He's batting leadoff and starting at second base in his return to action Thursday night against Miami left-hander Adam Conley. Segura, 26, boasts a .339/.368/.527 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI in 26 games this season for the Snakes.
May 5 - 3:55 PM

Domingo Santana (lat) is out again Thursday.

It's his third absence in Milwaukee's last four games. Santana is battling some mild soreness around his right lat and the Brewers don't want to risk it turning into something more. Alex Presley will get another start in right field Thursday versus the Reds.
May 5 - 3:11 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Thursday.

Heyward is still dealing with discomfort in his right wrist and hasn't played since Sunday, when he went 0-for-5 against the Braves. Kris Bryant is in right field and Tommy La Stella is at third base Thursday in the Cubs' big series opener against the Nationals.
