Felipe Paulino (elbow) threw off a mound for the first time Tuesday in spring training.

Paulino is only nine months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and will open 2013 on the disabled list. The right-hander is hoping to rejoin the Royals' rotation around the All-Star break.

Anibal Sanchez picked up his sixth victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Royals to just one run on eight hits over seven innings.

Sanchez punched out three on the night and didn’t walk a batter. The only damage against him on the night came in the first inning, where Salvador Perez cashed in Eric Hosmer with an RBI single. He’ll head into the All-Star break with a terrific 3.04 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 70/25 K/BB ratio over his first 94 2/3 innings.

Nick Hundley came through with an RBI single off Adam Warren in the 10th inning on Friday, leading the Orioles to a walk-off 3-2 victory.

The veteran backstop finished the night 2-for-4 with that critical RBI. With the two-hit effort, he's now hitting .264/.282/.384 with 13 RBI in 125 at-bats on the season. If he continues to swing the bat well, he could be in line for additional playing time behind the plate for the Orioles.

Jimmy Rollins homered twice and knocked in three runs in a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Friday night.

Rollins connected for a two-run shot off Jordan Zimmermann in the third inning and later added a solo blast against Craig Stammen in the seventh. It was his first multi-hit homer game since August 1, 2012, also against the Nationals. While the 35-year-old has seen his batting average drop off in a big way since the start of the season, he's now up to 11 home runs on the year. He hit just six of them in 160 games last year.

Bryce Harper hit a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

It was his second home run of the season and his first since coming off the disabled list. It was a long wait for Harper, as his first was way back on April 9. He ended up going three months and 102 plate appearances between home runs. Harper has really struggled since returning, but we expect much better as he shakes the rust and gets further removed from surgery.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said after Friday's game that Jordan Zimmermann was removed with a right bicep cramp.

The right-hander will undergo a precautionary MRI on Saturday to rule out any structural damage. For the moment, it's encouraging that the injury doesn't have anything to do with his elbow or shoulder. Unfortunately, he will now be forced to miss the All-Star Game for the second consecutive season due to injury.

David Wright went 4-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs in a win over the Marlins on Friday.

It was the 19th four-hit game of his career. Wright has hit safely in each of his last five games, so it looks like the time off for his shoulder was just what the doctored ordered. His overall numbers still aren't on par with what we've seen from him in the past, so fantasy owners will have to hope that he can keep it going in the second half.

George Springer was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Friday.

No word given yet as to the reason for the late scratch. Robbie Grossman will start in his place in center field and hit sixth for the Astros.

Diamoncbacks activated OF Mark Trumbo from the 15-day disabled list.

Trumbo blasted five long balls in his seven rehab games, forcing the Diamondbacks to activate him a few days earlier than originally planned. He is in the lineup and will bat fifth against Tim Lincecum in his return.
Jul 11 - 6:19 PM

Hanley Ramirez is not expected to play before the All-Star break due to a flare-up with his arthritic right shoulder.

Ramirez, who received another injection in the shoulder following Thursday's game, missed a handful of games last month with the same ailment. The Dodgers are hoping that he'll be ready to go for the start of the second half, but it's no guarantee. Miguel Rojas is handling shortstop while Ramirez is sidelined.
Jul 11 - 5:52 PM

Jason Castro is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

It's his first start since Sunday, as Castro has been battling pain in his left armpit. The Astros catching is sporting a .228/.303/.366 batting line with seven homers and 34 RBI over 73 games this season.
Jul 11 - 4:41 PM

Orioles placed RHP Ubaldo Jimenez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 6, with a sprained right ankle.

Jimenez rolled his ankle on Wednesday while getting out of his car, resulting in lots of swelling. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Kevin Gausman has been recalled to take his spot in the rotation.
