Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

CarGo tweaked his right wrist on a swing Thursday and had to be lifted from the game. It looks like a minor thing at this point, but he could need a few days off. Ryan Raburn is in right field.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Angels "are listening" on Yunel Escobar and the Giants are "among the teams that have expressed interest."

It could indicate that the Giants aren't expecting Matt Duffy (Achilles) back anytime soon. It's no surprise that the Angels are willing to move Escobar, as they're already 16 games out of first place and don't seem likely to close that gap. Escobar is making $7 million this season and the Halos have a $7 million option on him for 2017.

Jose Abreu is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday due to leg fatigue.

It will only be a one-day absence, as Abreu is expected back in there Saturday. Todd Frazier will play first base and Tyler Saladino is at third on Friday.

Gregory Polanco is not in the Pirates' lineup Friday due to left leg discomfort.

The Pirates got Starling Marte (foot) back in the lineup Friday but now will be without Polanco. It's unclear how Polanco was injured, but it appears to be a day-to-day situation. Matt Joyce has taken his spot in right field.

Yoenis Cespedes (wrist) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Cespedes missed just one start with a mild left wrist sprain. He was given a cortisone shot and is now ready to go, playing center field and batting third on Friday.

Anthony Rizzo (back) remained out of the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Rizzo has missed two straight games and three games over the last couple weeks with a stiff back. He's day-to-day. Kris Bryant has slid across the diamond to first base and Javier Baez will handle third base on Friday.

Starling Marte (foot) is back in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

Marte hasn't started since leaving Tuesday's game with a sore foot. He's batting second and playing left field. The Pirates are also resting Josh Harrison, as Sean Rodriguez is handling second base.

Pirates activated RHP Juan Nicasio from the restricted list.

Nicasio was away for about a week while dealing with a private family matter back in the Dominican Republic. The Pirates announced that the righty will be moved into the bullpen, likely for the remainder of the season. They haven't revealed yet who will start Sunday in Nicasio's place.

Rays acquired OF Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Arcia has hit only .240/.303/.429 over 967 plate appearances at the big league level, but he just turned 25 last month and has shown lots of power in flashes. He should see playing time in the corner outfield spots while Brandon Guyer (hamstring) and Steven Souza (hip) are sidelined, although both players are due back soon.

Joey Votto (flu) is back in the Reds' lineup Friday.

Votto was under the weather for a few days, but he pinch-hit Thursday and is back in there Friday. He's batting second and playing first base against Colin Rea and the Padres.

Carlos Gonzalez suffered a right wrist injury in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

CarGo struck out with the bases loaded in the eighth inning and was then removed in a double switch in the ninth. Rockies team doctor Tom Noonan looked at Gonzalez after the game and believes the injury is minor, but the outfielder will be re-evaluated on Friday. "I sprained it a little bit, and it’s sore," Gonzalez said Thursday. "We will see how it feels tomorrow, but I don’t think it’s anything major."
