Latest Headlines

Orioles placed 2B Brian Roberts on the 15-day disabled list with a ruptured tendon in his right knee.

He won't require surgery but is expected to be sidelined for 2-4 weeks. Given his injury history, it's probably safe to assume it will be closer to four weeks before he's back on the field. Alexi Casilla and Ryan Flaherty will handle second base for the Orioles while Roberts is out.

David Price (elbow) is scheduled to face live hitters on Saturday.

Price made it through a 45-pitch bullpen session Monday without issue and is finally ready to take the next step in his rehab. It'll be his first time facing live hitters since he came down with elbow discomfort in early March. There should be a better picture on his timetable after the weekend.

Zach Britton (forearm) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab appearance on Friday.

That assumes he makes it through a full bullpen session Wednesday without issue. There's talk of Britton returning to the Orioles on Sunday, but the 29-year-old closer still has some big hurdles to clear. Brad Brach and Darren O'Day have been handling ninth-inning duties for Baltimore while Britton nurses a forearm strain.

Matt Carpenter was suspended one game by Major League Baseball for bumping into an umpire on Sunday.

Carpenter made contact with the home plate ump Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee after getting ejected for arguing a called third strike. He was set to bat second for St. Louis on Tuesday night against the Blue Jays, but the 31-year-old first baseman has decided not to appeal the ruling.

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers are calling up top prospect Cody Bellinger.

It's an aggressive promotion for the 21-year-old first baseman and outfielder, who tore up the 2016 Arizona Fall League and was off to a blistering start this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Bellinger should get regular playing time in Los Angeles with Rob Segedin (toe), Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring), and Joc Pederson (groin) all nursing injuries. The kid carries massive offensive potential.

Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) said he expects to return to the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday.

Pedroia hasn't played since injuring his knee and ankle on a controversial slide by Manny Machado on Friday, but the veteran second baseman had a clean exam Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital and told reporters Tuesday that he's feeling looser. Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees was rained out.
Apr 25 - 3:59 PM

Kyle Seager told reporters Tuesday that his hip feels fine.

Seager was scratched from Sunday's series finale against the A's with a sore hip and he won't start Tuesday night's series opener at Detroit, but it sounds like the third baseman will be available off the bench. Taylor Motter is filling in at the hot corner for Seattle on Tuesday with Jean Segura (hamstring) returning to shortstop.
Apr 25 - 3:49 PM

Steven Souza (elbow) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

Souza banged his right elbow while trying to catch a home run ball during Monday's game, but fortunately X-rays came back negative and he won't have to miss any time. He's due to hit leadoff with left-hander Wade Miley on the hill for Baltimore. Souza is off to a red-hot start at the plate, batting .333/.416/.590 with four homers and 17 RBI through 21 games.
Apr 25 - 3:18 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is back in the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Braves.

Another one of the banged-up Mets, d'Arnaud was limited to pinch-hitting duties over the weekend due to a right wrist contusion. However, he managed to avoid the disabled list and will bat eighth in his return, weather-perimitting.
Apr 25 - 3:13 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) has returned to the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Cespedes was forced to miss the entire weekend series against the Nationals while nursing left hamstring soreness, but he's back in there as promised Tuesday. Of course, there's rain in the forecast and the game might not be played.
Apr 25 - 3:11 PM

George Springer (hamstring) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

The hope was that Springer would only have to miss one game due to his left hamstring tightness, but he apparently needs at least another day. Josh Reddick is starting in center field Tuesday, with Nori Aoki in right and Carlos Beltran in left.
Apr 25 - 3:09 PM

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "moving forward" with an investment group including Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter to purchase the team.

This confirms a report from Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg. Jackson hears that there's an "agreement in principle" for the Jeb/Jeter group to purchase the team from Jeffrey Loria, with the price tag at $1.3 billion. Bush is expected to be the control person, according to Jackson, but more than five investors are involved and Jeter is expected to have an active role. Of course, any sale will need to be approved by MLB's other owners. Loria originally purchased the Marlins for $158.5 million in 2002.
