Making his first appearance in eight days, Greg Holland struck out the side in the ninth Wednesday to earn a save in a 1-0 game against the Braves.

Holland remains the Royals' closer despite his first-week troubles. He's pitched scoreless innings in three of his five appearances, and he needed just 14 pitches to fan Justin Upton, Evan Gattis and Dan Uggla on Wednesday. Holland owners can breathe a sigh of relief.

Masahiro Tanaka was brilliant Friday against the Rays, allowing just two hits over seven scoreless innings as part of a 4-1 win.

Tanaka gave up just two hits, both of them singles. He didn’t allow his first one until the fifth inning. He was very efficient, throwing 53 out of 82 pitches for strikes while walking none and striking out four. Tanaka had a pair of shaky outings earlier this month, but he has bounced back by allowing just one run in 14 innings over his last two starts. He’ll bring a 2.89 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays on the road next week.

Josh Donaldson blasted a pair of homers and drove in five runs on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a 7-5 victory over the visiting Red Sox.

Donaldson got the scoring started in the first inning, swatting a solo homer off of Red Sox starter Joe Kelly. He gave them the lead again with an RBI double in the third inning and again in the fourth with an RBI single. After the Red Sox had tied the score at 5-5 in the top half of the eighth, Donaldson answered with an opposite-field two-run shot off of Koji Uehara to put the game away. He finished the night 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and five RBI and is now hitting .257/.353/.540 with 13 homers and 29 RBI on the season.

Erick Aybar was removed from Friday's game against the Marlins in the fifth inning after he was hit in the ankle by a pitch from Adam Conley.

Aybar remained in the game to run the bases for himself, but was replaced by Daniel Castro defensively to begin the next inning. It would appear as though his exit was precautionary, but expect an update from the Braves on his status shortly.

Mariners placed OF Leonys Martin on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Rather than rush the hot-hitting outfielder back, they'll give him the proper time to heal his injury. Stefan Romero has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the M's roster.

David Peralta (wrist) expects to begin playing in extended spring training games next Wednesday.

Peralta plans to play a few games and then rejoin the Diamondbacks, so it looks like he should return next weekend if all goes well. The outfielder has been on the shelf for the last three weeks with inflammation in his right wrist, but he's been swinging a bat for a few days with no issues.

Diamondbacks placed RHP Rubby De La Rosa on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 26, with a right elbow inflammation.

The club skipped De La Rosa's start last week due to some triceps soreness, among other things. He returned to take the ball on Wednesday in Pittsburgh and struggled and is now on the DL with what the D'Backs are calling an elbow injury. De La Rosa is expected to miss a month of action.
May 27 - 5:40 PM

Diamondbacks placed RHP Shelby Miller on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 25, with a right index finger injury.

Miller hurt the finger last month when he dragged it across the mound on his follow-through after delivering a pitch, and the D'Backs are saying the finger is still an issue. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but the club will likely take its time with Miller given how much he's struggled Archie Bradley is expected to replace him in the rotation.
May 27 - 5:37 PM

Justin Upton (quad) is back in the Tigers' lineup Friday.

Upton hasn't played since Sunday due to tightness in his right quad. He's in left field and batting sixth versus Sean Manaea and the Athletics.
May 27 - 5:24 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will be activated from the disabled list to make his season debut on Tuesday in Baltimore.

Clay Buchholz is headed to the bullpen. Rodriguez had a mini-setback with his right knee last week, but he returned to throw seven innings of one-run ball for Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday. Fantasy owners should probably give him a start or two to get his feet wet.
May 27 - 5:15 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Friday that Clay Buchholz has been moved to the bullpen.

Buchholz was tagged for six runs on Thursday in another poor showing that pushed his ERA up to 6.35, so the move comes as no surprise. Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will come off the disabled list to start in his place on Tuesday. Buchholz should get another shot in the Red Sox' rotation eventually, but for now he'll be used in long relief.
May 27 - 5:12 PM

Brandon Belt (ankle) remained out of the Giants' lineup Friday.

Belt hasn't played since spraining his left ankle on a slide Wednesday. He's considered day-to-day. The Giants have Buster Posey at first base and Trevor Brown at catcher Friday.
