Brandon Belt (ankle) remained out of the Giants' lineup Friday.

Belt hasn't played since spraining his left ankle on a slide Wednesday. He's considered day-to-day. The Giants have Buster Posey at first base and Trevor Brown at catcher Friday.
May 27 - 5:10 PM

Hunter Pence (hamstring) remained out of the Giants' lineup Friday.

Pence has been limited to a couple pinch-hitting opportunities over the last week due to a sore right hamstring. Jarrett Parker is filling in in right field.
May 27 - 5:07 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is back in the Blue Jays' lineup Friday.

Tulo missed the last two games with a sore right quad, but he's ready to go now. He's at shortstop and batting fifth versus Joe Kelly and the Red Sox.
May 27 - 4:51 PM

Michael Brantley (shoulder) will take some dry swings and possibly hit off a tee on Friday.

It's a nice step, although there remains no timetable for Brantley to return to games so it's going to be a long process. The outfielder was placed on the disabled list two weeks ago due to fatigue in his surgically-repaired right shoulder.
May 27 - 4:31 PM

Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Urias will make his major league debut on Friday against the Mets. The top prospect has put up a 1.10 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 44/8 K/BB ratio through 41 innings this season at Oklahoma City and was in the midst of a 27-inning scoreless streak at the time of his promotion. He's filling in for Alex Wood (triceps) and might be sent down after the start, although the Dodgers have discussed using Urias as a reliever.
May 27 - 4:25 PM

Rangers recalled INF Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock.

Profar is starting at second base and batting leadoff for the Rangers on Friday and could remain in both places for the next week while Rougned Odor serves his suspension. After missing two seasons with ongoing shoulder issues, Profar has batted .284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals across 189 plate appearances with Round Rock this season. His stay with the big club could be short, but he's worth owning in fantasy leagues while he's up.
May 27 - 3:58 PM

David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

It looks to be a routine day of rest. The Red Sox have Hanley Ramirez in the designated hitter spot, Travis Shaw at first base and Marco Hernandez at third base Friday.
May 27 - 3:39 PM

Major League Baseball has upheld Jose Bautista's one-game suspension.

Bautista tried to get the suspension thrown out via the appeals process but was denied. He'll serve the suspension on Friday against the Red Sox. Ezequiel Carrera is getting a start in right field in Bautista's place.
May 27 - 3:23 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Cabrera had to leave Wednesday's game due to back spasms, but he rested up during the off day Thursday and is now ready to go. He's at shortstop and batting second against Julio Urias and the Dodgers.
May 27 - 3:19 PM

Christian Yelich (back) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

He's now missed six games with back spasms. Yelich has some history with back issues, although it doesn't appear at this point the disabled list is being considered. Cole Gillespie will start in left field again.
May 27 - 2:59 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Stanton hasn't played since Tuesday due to soreness in his right side. The Marlins haven't indicated to this point that a trip to the disabled list is a possibility, but obviously the likelihood increases the longer this drags on. Ichiro Suzuki is again filling in in right field and leading off.
