Cardinals reassigned RHP Maikel Cleto, C Rob Johnson and INF Greg Garcia to minor league camp.

Cleto impressed this spring, posting a 1.35 ERA while striking out 10 over 6 2/3 innings, but he didn't have a real shot to crack the Opening Day roster. The hard-thrower should be up with the big club at some point this season, though.

Juan Nicasio was in dominant form in Friday's victory over the Reds, punching out eight over seven shutout innings of baseball.

Nicasio surrendered just three hits and a walk in the impressive outing. Through five starts he certainly looks to be another successful reclamation project for Pirates' pitching coach Ray Searage, as Nicasio has compiled a 3.33 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 29/12 K/BB ratio across 27 innings. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues at this point for Wednesday's start against the Cubs.

Yoenis Cespedes had a two-run single and a grand slam in the third inning Friday as the Mets thrashed the Giants 13-1.

It was his first start in a week and he announced his return to the lineup with authority. His grand slam was the exclamation point on a team record 12-run third inning for New York. The six RBI frame from Cespedes also set a team record. The 30-year-old has homered in four out of his last five games and is batting .313/.380/.719 with seven home runs and 23 RBI overall.

David Ortiz went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run homer in a 4-2 win over the Yankees on Friday night.

Ortiz took a first-pitch curveball from Dellin Betances and launched it over the Green Monster to give Boston the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning. The veteran slugger was 0-for-7 with four strikeouts against Betances before the go-ahead blast. Ortiz is now up to 507 home runs for his career and is batting .297/.395/.568 with three home runs and 16 RBI through 21 games in his farewell season.

Michael Saunders clobbered a pair of solo home runs on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a 6-1 victory over the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Saunders tagged left-hander Drew Smyly (for the second time this season) for a solo blast in the third inning to open the scoring in the contest. He then launched another impressive drive off southpaw Dana Eveland in the eighth inning, increasing the Rays advantage to 3-0. Saunders has settled in nicely atop the Blue Jays lineup and is slashing an impressive .324/.377/.606 with four homers and eight RBI on the season.

Aaron Sanchez delivered an outstanding performance in Friday's victory over the Rays, racking up six strikeouts over seven scoreless innings of work.

Sanchez scattered six hits and a pair of walks on the night, never letting the Rays mount a serious threat against him. His transition to the starting rotation has gone incredibly well thus far, as Sanchez has compiled a 2.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 29/8 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings, that despite allowing six runs in his last outing. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he takes on the Rangers at home on Wednesday.

Rockies activated OF Charlie Blackmon from the 15-day disabled list.

Blackmon missed two weeks of action with a toe injury but is back at his regular spot atop the Rockies lineup on Friday. Prior to his injury, Blackmon was hitting just .185/.241/.333 with no homers and three RBI in his first eight games.
Apr 29 - 6:38 PM

Jon Lester struck out 10 batters while yielding just one run over seven innings in Friday's 6-1 win over the Braves.

Lester ran into trouble in his final frame, loading the bases with nobody out with the help of a bunt that he misplayed. However, he got back-to-back strikeouts and then a groundout to escape trouble. Although he wasn't credited with a victory, it was another terrific showing for the veteran lefty. Lester has recorded 10 strikeouts in two of his last three starts and will take a 1.83 ERA and 33/7 K/BB ratio into next week's showdown with the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

Alex Meyer will make his first major league start on Tuesday in Houston.

He's replacing Tommy Milone in the rotation. Meyer has started and relieved since the beginning of last season, putting up a 1.04 ERA and 19/4 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings at Triple-A Rochester in 2016. He has major control issues but also a big arm, so it will be interesting to see how he fares. He's worth a shot if you're in a deep league.

Athletics purchased the contract of LHP Sean Manaea from Triple-A Nashville.

Manaea will make his major league debut on Friday against the Astros. Acquired from the Royals last season in the Ben Zobrist deal, Manaea has put up a 1.50 ERA and 21/4 K/BB over 18 innings this season at Nashville. He should get a chance to stick around for good if he pitches well, particularly with Chris Bassitt (elbow) going on the disabled list.
Apr 29 - 4:48 PM

Athletics placed RHP Chris Bassitt on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

It helps explain why Bassitt's velocity was down Thursday against the Tigers when he got pummeled for seven runs over 3 2/3 innings. It's unclear at this point how long Bassitt will be sidelined. Jesse Hahn will replace him in the rotation on Saturday.

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

He's just receiving a day of rest. The Marlins have Ichiro Suzuki in right field and in the leadoff spot in their first game without Dee Gordon. J.T. Realmuto and Adeiny Hechavarria are also getting breathers, as Jeff Mathis is catching and Miguel Rojas is at shortstop.
