Royals signed RHP Anthony Ortega to a minor league contract.

Ortega was released by the Angels in 2011 and missed all last season due to injury. The 27-year-old is strictly organizational depth.

Matt Adams (back) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Adams departed Thursday's game with mid-back stiffness. It's viewed as a day-to-day thing for the time being. Brandon Moss is handling first base Friday.

Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Saturday.

Carrasco has been throwing off a mound for two weeks and hasn't had any issues with his strained hamstring. The right-hander figures to need a couple rehab outings before rejoining the Indians' rotation early next month.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks are expected to place Shelby Miller (finger) on the disabled list Friday.

Manager Chip Hale revealed Thursday that Miller is still dealing with discomfort in a finger on his right hand as a result of an injury last month. It's fair to question whether Miller is truly hurt or whether the D'Backs just want to give the struggling righty some time off, but either way he's not going to start for them for a while. Archie Bradley will replace Miller in the rotation.

Anthony Rizzo is absent from the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Rizzo has just three hits in his last 38 at-bats, so it's probably a good time to get him a breather with a lefty (Adam Morgan) on the mound. Jason Heyward is also receiving a day off, as the Cubs have Kris Bryant at first base, Javier Baez at third base and Matt Szczur in right field.

Maikel Franco (ankle) is back in the Phillies' lineup Friday.

Franco had to be pulled from Wednesday game after spraining his right ankle, but he's ready to roll after Thursday's off day. Franco is batting third and playing third base against Jon Lester and the Cubs.

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will throw a simulated game on Saturday.

Gallardo was cleared to face hitters after getting through a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. It's possible he'll be cleared to begin a rehab assignment after the simulated game, although that hasn't been decided yet. "We’re hoping that [simulated game Saturday] goes well, and if that goes well, we’ve got to decide whether he needs to do that one more time or he goes out [for a rehab stint]," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored to help the Brewers take out the Braves 6-2 on Thursday.

If he's not doing it with his legs, he's doing it with his stick, as evidenced by Thursday's solo dinger. The homer was his second of the season to give him 16 RBI, and he's got 21 runs scored through Thursday's game. More importantly, Villar has 15 steals to lead the National League, and his .295/.392/.416 line is all gravy as well.

George Springer hit a pair of solo home runs in the Astros' 4-2 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Springer led off the Astros' half of the first inning with a homer against Orioles starter Kevin Gausman, and he connected again in the fifth, also off Gausman. The multi-homer game was his first this season, giving him 11 home runs overall. The 26-year-old is hitting .270/.364/.492 and has been serving as the team's leadoff hitter, ahead of Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, in recent days.

Luis Valbuena hit a two-run home run in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

The home run was his third in as many games, as Valbuena apparently likes batting against Orioles pitching. Thursday's blast came against Kevin Gausman, one of three homers Gausman gave up to Astros hitters on the night. Valbuena's power display has more than doubled his home run total since the start of the series, as the 30-year-old now has five homers and 15 RBI to go with a .220/.303/.402 line.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said there's no decision on whether Clay Buchholz will make his next start.

With Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) ready to come off the disabled list, Buchholz was likely pitching for his rotation spot Thursday against the Rockies. It didn't go well as the right-hander allowed a season-high six runs while watching his ERA balloon to 6.35. The Red Sox are famous for inventing injuries for struggling players and that might be their best option with Buchholz here. Buchholz has no confidence right now and is having a really difficult time with runners on base. We'd be surprised to see him make his next start Tuesday against Baltimore.
May 26 - 10:45 PM

Dustin Garneau hit one of three, two-run home runs on the night as the Rockies thumped the Red Sox 8-2 on Thursday.

Garneau's two-run dinger in the fifth inning followed two-run shots by Carlos Gonzalez, who hit his in the fourth, and Trevor Story, whose homer came two batters before Garneau's. The catcher also doubled and scored in the game. The home run was the first of the season for the 28-year-old, and his .270/.317/.459 line while filling in for the injured Nick Hundley could leave the Rockies' front office with a tough decision when Hundley returns.
