Padres re-signed RHP Jason Marquis to a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's a decent score for Marquis, whose career appeared to be in jeopardy after he opened 2012 with an 8.47 ERA through seven starts with the Twins. But he rebounded out in San Diego, like many pitchers before him, and should remain a decent option for the Padres in 2013.

Dexter Fowler (hamstring) may not be ready to return from the disabled list on Monday when first eligible.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicated that Fowler might not play at all during the series against the Reds that goes through July 6. Fowler has been out for nearly two weeks of action with a strained right hamstring. Albert Almora, Matt Szczur and Jason Heyward have handled center field in his absence.

Baseball America's Ben Badler reports that the Athletics are expected to sign Cuban outfielder Lazaro Armenteros for around $3 million when the international signing period begins Saturday.

There have been mixed reviews on how "Lazarito" has looked during showcases for teams, but everyone agrees that there's plenty of raw ability there. He's only 17 years old and will take a long time to develop, but the A's are evidently willing to buy the expensive lottery ticket.

Yunel Escobar (knee) went through a full workout Friday and the hope is that he'll return to the lineup this weekend.

Escobar is out of the lineup for the seventh straight game, but the Angels are optimistic that he'll be ready to go on Saturday or Sunday. If he's not, the disabled list will finally be considered at that point.

David Peralta (back) took 30 swings off a tee on Friday.

It's the first time he's swung the bat since going on the disabled list two and a half weeks ago with a lower back sprain. Peralta will hit off a tee again Saturday and also take some soft-toss. It's possible he'll be ready to take batting practice by Monday.

Stephen Piscotty (foot) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

The good news is he's available off the bench and should be back in there Saturday. Brandon Moss is in right field Friday.
Jul 1 - 4:24 PM

Aledmys Diaz (eye) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Diaz missed a few days of action after a pitch he foul-tipped bounced off the dirt and caught him above the eye. He's batting second and playing shortstop against Matt Garza and the Brewers.
Jul 1 - 4:20 PM

Alex Colome (biceps) hopes to throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Colome played catch without issue Thursday and will do it again Friday. He thinks there's a chance he'll be activated on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. "For sure... Maybe," Colome said.
Jul 1 - 3:50 PM

Jason Heyward (side) is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Heyward missed a couple days of action with some tightness in his left side. He's in right field and batting second against Jacob deGrom and the Mets.
Jul 1 - 3:40 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) is not expected to return to the lineup this weekend.

The good news is that it's not expected to be a disabled list situation. The Mets have Brandon Nimmo in right field and in the leadoff spot again Friday, while Kelly Johnson is handling left.
Jul 1 - 3:29 PM

Hanley Ramirez (side) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez's side tightened up on him after a swing Wednesday, forcing him from the game. The good news is he was nearly put in the lineup Friday, so he should be back sometime over the weekend. The Red Sox have Travis Shaw at first base and Marco Hernandez at third.
Jul 1 - 3:08 PM

The Nationals have not yet ruled out Stephen Strasburg (back) starting on Sunday against the Reds.

Manager Dusty Baker said that Strasburg is feeling good and wants to make the start, but the club is still trying to decide whether they should hold him back a bit longer. While Lucas Giolito does still seem like a pretty good bet for Sunday, it does seem like there's a much better chance for Strasburg to take the ball than there was a day or two ago.
