Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Thursday that Juan Francisco and Chris Johnson will likely platoon at third base to start the season.

Gonzalez was hoping one of the duo would separate themselves during Grapefruit League play, but they've both played well, so he's not ready to name a starter. "I think both of those guys are playing such great baseball right now," Gonzalez said, "so it would be unfair to say (to one of them) you’re the starter." Francisco will see more start as the left-handed bat and offers some power potential for fantasy owners.

Marlins activated RHP Jose Fernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

Fernandez is ready to rock again, 13 months after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The 22-year-old right-hander showed promising signs on his five-start minor league rehab assignment and needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues for what should be an exciting and productive second half of the 2015 season. Fernandez owns a remarkable 2.25 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 257 strikeouts in 224 1/3 career major league innings. He's starting Thursday at home against the Giants.

Dodgers signed RHP Yadier Alvarez.

It's a contract worth $16 million. Los Angeles has been considered the frontrunner for Alvarez for months and there was probably already a handshake agreement in place, but the deal couldn't be announced until the official beginning of the July 2 signing period. Alvarez is a hard-throwing 19-year-old right-hander out of Cuba. He was one of the top talents in this international amateur class.

Yordano Ventura (hand) allowed just one run over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday at Triple-A Omaha.

Ventura walked three but struck out four and gave up only three hits. It may be enough to convince the Royals that the 24-year-old right-hander is ready to return from the disabled list. He's been on the shelf since June 13 with ulnar neuritis.

Giants activated RHP Matt Cain from the 15-day disabled list.

Cain will make his 2015 regular-season debut Thursday in the Giants' series finale against the Marlins after missing three months with a flexor tendon strain in his right arm. The veteran right-hander pitched pretty well on his minor league rehab tour and is worth owning in most mixed fantasy leagues. Tim Lincecum (forearm) was placed on the disabled list Thursday in a corresponding roster move.

Giants placed RHP Tim Lincecum on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm contusion.

Lincecum suffered a bad bruise Saturday in his start against the Rockies. He may be moved to the bullpen once he's back to 100 percent health. Matt Cain (elbow) is taking over the vacant rotation spot.

Brett Anderson picked up his fifth win of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Diamondbacks, yielding just one run over seven innings.

Anderson scattered seven hits over his seven innings of work. The lone run to dent his line came when he served up a solo homer to Aaron Hill in the sixth inning. Otherwise, Anderson was aces, striking out seven against two walks and improving to 5-4 on the year. This isn't anything new, as he's allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his last eight starts. Anderson's bugaboo has always been health, but for the time being, he is pitching some of his best baseball of the season. Overall, he holds a 3.00, 1.29 WHIP and 69/26 K/BB ratio over 96 innings. A home date with the Phillies awaits for his next start.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he's not optimistic George Springer (wrist) will be able to avoid the disabled list.

Hinch told reporters Springer's wrist is "causing great concern" with the club. Springer was hit on the right wrist by an Edinson Volquez pitch in Wednesday's win. He'll surely undergo X-rays before the team's next game on Friday, so the team should have a clearer picture of his prognosis prior to that contest.

Rays activated LHP Matt Moore from the 60-day disabled list.

Moore will start Thursday for the Rays, his first start since April 7 of last season. The southpaw owned a 2.95 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings while rehabbing in the minors. Moore was an All-Star in 2013 and, while he'll have some bumps along the way, should enjoy a return to form eventually. Whether that's in 2015 is still anyone's guess.

Neil Walker went 4-for-6 with a pair of home runs, a stolen base, three RBI, and three runs scored as the Pirates drubbed the Tigers on Wednesday.

Walker was the hero on Tuesday, hitting a game-winning double, and stayed hot on Wednesday. His first home run, of the two-run variety, jump-started a five-run third inning. His second was the first of three solo home runs hit in the eighth. Walker's recent hot streak has his batting line up to .268/.338/.410 with six home runs, 27 RBI, 32 runs scored, and three stolen bases.

Buster Posey passed a concussion test after Wednesday's game.

Posey left the game after taking a foul ball off his mask. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the catcher felt "off" and didn't want to risk further injury. He'll be re-evaluated again Thursday, but as of now it appears he dodged a huge bullet.
Jul 1 - 10:12 PM

Scooter Gennett went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a triple, three RBI, and two runs scored to lead the Brewers past the Phillies on Wednesday.

It's his first three-hit game of the year and only his sixth multi-hit game. Gennett doubled and scored on Adam Lind's homer in the first inning, scored after reaching on a fielder's choice in the fourth, hit a two-run double in the sixth, and ripped an RBI triple in the eighth. He otherwise has not had much to write home about offensively, batting .224/.260/.392 with four home runs and 12 RBI.
