Marlins avoided arbitration with RHP Ryan Webb by agreeing to a one-year, $975,000 contract.

He can earn an additional $10,000 if he appears in 67 games. Webb, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, has posted a 3.45 ERA over three and a half big league seasons.

Fox Sports' Jon Morosi expects the Cardinals to "find creative ways" to keep Aledmys Diaz in the lineup when Jhonny Peralta returns from his thumb injury.

Peralta should return early next month. Diaz has gotten off to an impossibly hot start, hitting .381 with a .679 slugging percentage through 26 games. Peralta was no slouch last year either, batting .275 with 17 HR and 71 RBI. Morosi said the Cardinals are open to using Peralta at both third and first base, which would allow Diaz to stay put at shortstop. Diaz is able to play any infield position, so manager Mike Matheny shouldn't have to rack his brain too hard to have both players in the lineup most days.

Garrett Richards (fatigue) is unlikely to make his scheduled start Friday against the Rays.

He's been dealing with fatigue including dehydration. The Angels are already shorthanded after demoting Matt Shoemaker earlier this week. Another roster move could be on the way. Richards owns the American League's ninth-lowest ERA despite a disappointing 1-3 record.
May 5 - 5:36 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) expects to play Friday against the Nationals.

Wrist discomfort has kept Heyward out of the lineup since Sunday. He's expected to partake in Thursday's batting practice and see how he feels afterwards. Heyward has gotten off to a slow start (.211, 0 HR, 13 RBI) but he did the same thing last season before setting career-highs in both batting average (.293) and steals (23).
May 5 - 5:26 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is back in the White Sox's lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

He missed four games with a strained hamstring. Garcia will bat seventh and serve as the DH. Jerry Sands, who filled in during Garcia's short absence, will return to the bench. Garcia is only hitting .214 this year with a disappointing .291 on base percentage.
May 5 - 4:53 PM

Ben Revere (oblique) is not in the Nationals' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

Revere has joined the Nationals in Chicago after finishing his rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse. There was speculation he could be activated on Thursday but it appears the Nats will wait until Friday to make that move. Michael Taylor will start in center field and bat leadoff. Revere strained his oblique in Washington's season opener on April 4.
May 5 - 4:14 PM

Jean Segura is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Thursday versus the Marlins.

Segura missed a few games with a minor hip issue. He's batting leadoff and starting at second base in his return to action Thursday night against Miami left-hander Adam Conley. Segura, 26, boasts a .339/.368/.527 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI in 26 games this season for the Snakes.
May 5 - 3:55 PM

Domingo Santana (lat) is out again Thursday.

It's his third absence in Milwaukee's last four games. Santana is battling some mild soreness around his right lat and the Brewers don't want to risk it turning into something more. Alex Presley will get another start in right field Thursday versus the Reds.
May 5 - 3:11 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Thursday.

Heyward is still dealing with discomfort in his right wrist and hasn't played since Sunday, when he went 0-for-5 against the Braves. Kris Bryant is in right field and Tommy La Stella is at third base Thursday in the Cubs' big series opener against the Nationals.
May 5 - 3:06 PM

Matt Adams has been diagnosed with a knee contusion.

Adams suffered the bruise Thursday in an awkward collision at first base with the Phillies' Darin Ruf. The big left-handed swinger is considered day-to-day for now. Brandon Moss moved from left field to first base and Jeremy Hazelbaker took over in left.
May 5 - 3:01 PM

Billy Hamilton (thumb) is back in the Reds' starting lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

Hamilton has been in and out of the Reds' lineup over the last couple of weeks because of a jammed left thumb. The 25-year-old center fielder was able to serve as a late-inning defensive replacement on Wednesday night and he will bat second Thursday versus Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson.
May 5 - 1:12 PM

Aledmys Diaz is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

Diaz finally got to hit higher than seventh on Wednesday night, serving as the Cardinals' leadoff man in a 5-4 victory, but he'll take a day of rest Thursday versus Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Ruben Tejada is playing shortstop and batting eighth.
