John Danks (shoulder) has already had two throwing sessions.

Danks wasn't supposed to resume throwing until Thursday, but the White Sox decided to push up the timetable a bit. He made 20 throws from 45 feet and 15 tosses from 60 feet Monday before bumping up his reps a bit Wednesday. "We did it so my schedule is lined up to throw off a mound after Jan. 1," Danks said. "So far, so good. It feels like I haven't thrown in a while, but it's a positive step." The lefty added that he was checked out by doctors last week, and they were "very pleased" with his progress from arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Barring a setback, he should be on a pretty normal routine in spring training.

The Giants confirmed Friday that Madison Bumgarner is dealing with a Grad 2 shoulder sprain.

Tentatively, the Giants expect their star southpaw to return around the All-Star break. While the diagnosis hasn't changed, at least there now appears to be a clear timetable for his return to the Giants' rotation and fantasy owners can expect to have him back for the second half of the season, barring any setbacks.

Junior Guerra (calf) has resumed throwing bullpen sessions.

He's slated to throw a couple live batting practice sessions beginning early next week and then be cleared to begin a rehab assignment if all goes well. Guerra is working his way back from a strained right calf that he suffered in his first start of the season. He hopes to rejoin the Brewers' rotation before the end of May.

Eric Thames (hamstring) is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Thames departed Wednesday's game with some left hamstring tightness, but it was a precautionary exit and he's ready to go. He's at first base and batting second against Bartolo Colon and the Braves.
Apr 28 - 5:20 PM

Miguel Cabrera (groin) ran and took batting practice Friday.

Barring a setback, Cabrera should be good to go on Tuesday when he's first eligible. It's just the second time in his career that the slugger has been on the disabled list.

George Springer (hamstring) is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

Jose Altuve (head, shoulder) is back in there, as well, as the Astros are at full strength versus Jharel Cotton and the A's. Evan Gattis is catching over Brian McCann in this one.
Apr 28 - 4:40 PM

Noah Syndergaard (biceps) is expected to start Sunday versus the Nationals after getting through a throwing session Friday with no issues.

"My arm feels great," Syndergaard said Friday. "I should have thrown yesterday." Syndergaard's fantasy owners were worried after he had to be scratched from Thursday's start due to biceps tendinitis, and especially after he admitted that it was hard for him to lift his arm above his shoulder. However, he's apparently made a quick recovery. The Mets won't officially clear him for Sunday until they see how he feels Saturday. Sean Gilmartin is on standby just in case.
Apr 28 - 4:34 PM

Jose Abreu (hip/groin) is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Abreu had said he planned to play Friday after leaving Wednesday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue, but the White Sox have decided to give him another day. Matt Davidson is at first base, Tyler Saladino is in the leadoff spot and Yolmer Sanchez is at second base.
Apr 28 - 4:03 PM

Nelson Cruz was scratched from Friday's lineup with a cramp in his hamstring.

He should be back in there in a day or two as long as it's indeed merely a cramp. Taylor Motter has taken Cruz's spot in the lineup.
Apr 28 - 3:44 PM

Blue Jays designated C Jarrod Saltalamacchia for assignment.

Saltalamacchia was off to as bad of a start as you could imagine, going 1-for-25 with 16 strikeouts while failing to throw out a single baserunner in nine attempts. He'll get a minor league deal somewhere, but the soon-to-be 32-year-old has hit an ugly .159/.267/.317 since the beginning of last season. Luke Maile will now back up Russell Martin.
Apr 28 - 3:40 PM

David Freese (hamstring) remained out of the Pirates' lineup Friday.

Freese still felt something in his right hamstring while taking swings in the cage Friday. He hasn't played since Monday. The disabled list will be in play if Freese doesn't improve in a hurry, but the Pirates are still listing him as day-to-day for now and he'll try to field some grounders pre-game Friday. They have Josh Harrison at third base and Gift Ngoepe at second Friday.
Apr 28 - 3:26 PM

Dustin Pedroia is batting sixth for the Red Sox on Friday versus the Cubs.

It's the first time in his career that he's batted sixth. With Pedroia (.242/.311/.258) moving down, Xander Bogaerts (.313/.353/.328) is up in the leadoff spot.
