Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Saturday that James Paxton (forearm) will return from the disabled list to start against the Rockies on Wednesday.

That had been the target date all along and Paxton was able to avoid any setbacks in his recovery. The left-hander has been sidelined for nearly a month due to a strained forearm. Before landing on the shelf, he registered a 1.43 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings across six starts.

Daniel Murphy is once again out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Saturday.

Acting manager Chris Speier indicated nothing was wrong physically on Friday, but it's a troubling sign that he's sitting out a second straight game. Wilmer Difo is starting in his place again and batting eighth for the Nationals on Saturday.

J.D. Martinez is not in the Tigers' starting lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

He'll surely be back in there for the nightcap. JaCoby Jones is starting in his place in right field and batting eighth against Tyler Danish on Saturday afternoon.

White Sox signed OF Luis Robert to a $26 million contract.

The White Sox will hold a press conference on Saturday to announce the signing. The 19-year-old is considered an elite-level talent and a terrific get for the White Sox.

Tigers placed 2B Ian Kinsler on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Kinsler has been playing through a minor hamstring injury, but apparently tweaked it again during Friday's game. Look for Andrew Romine and Dixon Machado to handle the bulk of the reps at second base in his absence.

Bud Norris is considered day-to-day with soreness in his right knee.

The injury forced the veteran right-hander to leave Friday's game against the Marlins. It doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him held out through the rest of the weekend as a precautionary measure.

Devon Travis had a monster day at the plate on Friday, going 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI in a 7-6 victory over the Rangers.

Travis got the Blue Jays on the board with a grand slam off of A.J. Griffin in the second inning. He wound up finishing the night just a triple shy of the cycle. After a miserable start to the season, Travis' bat has heated up substantially in recent weeks and he's now hitting .252/.287/.439 with four homers, 19 RBI and four stolen bases on the season.

Jed Lowrie stayed hot in Friday’s win 4-1 win over the Yankees by going 3-for-4 with an RBI single.

Lowrie had two singles and a double. He broke a scoreless tie with a single off Tyler Clippard in the eighth. The 33-year-old has hit safely in seven straight games, including five multi-hit games. He’s batting .310/.376/.500 with six homers through 46 games on the year and deserves more attention in mixed fantasy leagues.

Masahiro Tanaka struck out a career-high 13 batters Friday against the Athletics, but took the loss after allowing one run in 7 1/3 innings.

That’s more like it. Tanaka held the Athletics scoreless through seven innings before giving up a one-out single to Adam Rosales in the eighth. After Tyler Clippard entered the game, Rosales was eventually thrown out at home plate on a fielder's choice by Rajai Davis. Davis came around to score later in the inning though, charging a run to Tanaka and putting him on the hook for the loss. It was a tough luck situation, but the Yankees and fantasy owners should feel very good about this performance. Tanaka gave up just five hits in all while walking none and inducing 26 swings and misses in his 111 pitches. He’ll try to build off this one when he faces the Orioles on the road next week.

Jacob deGrom struck out 10 and allowed one run over 8 1/3 innings in Friday’s victory over the Pirates.

It was the longest outing by a Mets starter this season. And boy, did they need it. DeGrom allowed just six hits and one walk, with the lone run scoring on a solo homer from Gregory Polanco in the fourth inning. Terry Collins gave him the chance to go the distance initially, but deGrom gave up a leadoff single to Polanco and struck out David Freese looking before being pulled at 118 pitches. DeGrom improved to 4-1 with the victory and now owns a 3.23 ERA and 86/24 K/BB ratio in 64 innings through 10 starts.

Neil Walker teed off on his old team on Friday, going 3-for-5 with two homers, four RBI, and three runs scored in an 8-1 victory over the Pirates.

Walker clubbed a two-run homer in the third inning and a solo shot in the fifth, giving him his fifth career multi-homer game. He later added an RBI single in the sixth for good measure. The 31-year-old had a very quiet April, but he’s batting .345 (30-for-87) with four home runs and 18 RBI this month.
