Latest Headlines

Alex Speier of WEEI.com hears that a trade of R.A. Dickey to the Red Sox is "extremely unlikely."

Speier says the talks between the two clubs were "very preliminary," and he confirms a report from Andy Martino of the New York Daily News that the two sides didn't discuss specific prospects that it would take to land Dickey. While the Red Sox are in the market for pitching, it appears that they're searching more for back-end of the rotation help.

Corey Dickerson (foot) is out of the Rockies' lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Dickerson had a flare-up of his plantar fasciitis so he'll get a rest in the nightcap. It's unclear whether the recurrence will force him to miss any time beyond Wednesday. Rafael Ynoa started in left field for the Rockies in Wednesday night's game.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday.

Puig still hadn't resumed running the bases as of Wednesday morning, so it will be interesting to find out how he fares on the basepaths should he reach base. Even so, it's a definite step in the right direction for the outfielder, who is on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. There's still a chance Puig comes off the DL after his 15 days are up.

Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) played catch Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's start with an apparent injury.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal heard Strasburg left Tuesday with a "cramp" and that a chiropractor adjusted him Wednesday. Whatever the issue, it's promising that he was feeling good enough to throw a day after exiting. The Nationals are still trying to assess the issue, and his status for his next scheduled start is still very much up in the air.

Jake McGee (elbow) is scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Durham on Friday.

The southpaw will likely have at least two more appearances with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate before being activated. McGee hasn't thrown a pitch for the Rays yet this season after offseason elbow surgery. Still, the expectation is that he'll eventually regain the closer job once healthy.
May 6 - 6:23 PM

Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will face live hitters Friday.

That's three days earlier than previously scheduled, a good sign for the lefty's recovery from a rotator cuff injury. Doolittle should be back sometime in May, barring any setbacks.
May 6 - 6:13 PM

Jose Iglesias (groin) is back in the Tigers' starting lineup on Wednesday night versus the White Sox.

Iglesias was unavailable Tuesday after leaving Sunday's game with tightness in his left groin. The dynamic young shortstop is batting ninth in his return to action Wednesday against White Sox ace Chris Sale.
May 6 - 5:46 PM

J.J. Hardy (shoulder) could join the Orioles on Thursday.

Hardy has been out all season with a left shoulder strain. He began a minor league rehab assignment Monday at Double-A Bowie and is 3-for-8 through two games. The 32-year-old shortstop had a disappointing offensive season in 2014, but he's still a pretty valuable fantasy commodity. Hardy tallied 25 homers and 76 RBI in 2013.
May 6 - 5:38 PM

Carlos Rodon will start Saturday against the Reds.

Jeff Samardzija has dropped the appeal of his five-game suspension, opening a spot temporarily for the 22-year-old Rondon. He has registered a 2.84 ERA in 6 1/3 innings of relief so far for Chicago, but his control hasn't been very good. It might be best to keep Rondon stashed in fantasy leagues until he has a permanent place in the White Sox rotation. Cincinnati isn't the easiest opponent for a stream.
May 6 - 5:26 PM

Brett Gardner is out Wednesday with a stiff neck.

It doesn't sound like it will be a lingering thing. Gardner doubled and scored a run on Tuesday night and is batting .309/.404/.444 with 18 runs scored in 23 games this season. Chris Young is in left field and batting second Wednesday night against the Blue Jays.
May 6 - 5:22 PM

Jordan Walden will be sidelined for the next 6-10 weeks with a right shoulder strain.

The good news is that he doesn't need surgery. Walden was used heavily during the first month of the season and began reporting stiffness in his right shoulder in early May. The hard-throwing setup man will be missed. He had registered a 0.87 ERA and 12 strikeouts over his first 10 1/3 innings (12 appearances) with the Cardinals.
May 6 - 5:15 PM

Carlos Perez is getting his second consecutive start at catcher Wednesday against the Mariners.

Perez made his major league debut on Tuesday night and went 2-for-4 with a walkoff solo home run to lift Anaheim over Seattle. He was tearing the cover off the ball at Triple-A and could continue to draw regular playing time with the Halos if his bat stays hot at the major league level. Chris Iannetta is hitting just .094/.192/.109 in 73 plate appearances this season.
