Padres recalled RHP Thad Weber from Triple-A Tucson.

Weber was called up for Tyson Ross, who went on the disabled list with a left shoulder subluxation. It's still unclear whether Weber will make the start in Ross' place on Tuesday or if he will be used in relief. Weber has a 4.91 ERA in 3 2/3 innings this year with the Padres.

Jackie Bradley (finger) is in the Red Sox's starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

He was truly a game-time decision as the Red Sox waited until an hour before the game to release their lineup. Bradley tested his finger out in batting practice and will give it a go. He injured his finger Wednesday when Dioner Navarro hit him on a pickoff attempt at third base. Bradley will bat ninth against right-hander Erik Johnson.

The Nationals are expected to activate Ben Revere (oblique) on Friday.

Revere could have played Thursday but manager Dusty Baker didn't want to risk it in the cold weather. He'll take batting practice and go through a normal pregame routine. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth both stand to lose playing time with Revere healthy again.

Hunter Pence is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Rockies.

It's a maintenance day for Pence, who has appeared in all 29 games this season. He'll be available off the bench. With Pence getting a breather, Gregor Blanco will start in right field and bat eighth.

Fox Sports' Jon Morosi expects the Cardinals to "find creative ways" to keep Aledmys Diaz in the lineup when Jhonny Peralta returns from his thumb injury.

Peralta should return early next month. Diaz has gotten off to an impossibly hot start, hitting .381 with a .679 slugging percentage through 26 games. Peralta was no slouch last year either, batting .275 with 17 HR and 71 RBI. Morosi said the Cardinals are open to using Peralta at both third and first base, which would allow Diaz to stay put at shortstop. Diaz is able to play any infield position, so manager Mike Matheny shouldn't have to rack his brain too hard to have both players in the lineup most days.

Garrett Richards (fatigue) is unlikely to make his scheduled start Friday against the Rays.

He's been dealing with fatigue including dehydration. The Angels are already shorthanded after demoting Matt Shoemaker earlier this week. Another roster move could be on the way. Richards owns the American League's ninth-lowest ERA despite a disappointing 1-3 record.
May 5 - 5:36 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) expects to play Friday against the Nationals.

Wrist discomfort has kept Heyward out of the lineup since Sunday. He's expected to partake in Thursday's batting practice and see how he feels afterwards. Heyward has gotten off to a slow start (.211, 0 HR, 13 RBI) but he did the same thing last season before setting career-highs in both batting average (.293) and steals (23).
May 5 - 5:26 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is back in the White Sox's lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

He missed four games with a strained hamstring. Garcia will bat seventh and serve as the DH. Jerry Sands, who filled in during Garcia's short absence, will return to the bench. Garcia is only hitting .214 this year with a disappointing .291 on base percentage.
May 5 - 4:53 PM

Jean Segura is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Thursday versus the Marlins.

Segura missed a few games with a minor hip issue. He's batting leadoff and starting at second base in his return to action Thursday night against Miami left-hander Adam Conley. Segura, 26, boasts a .339/.368/.527 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI in 26 games this season for the Snakes.
May 5 - 3:55 PM

Domingo Santana (lat) is out again Thursday.

It's his third absence in Milwaukee's last four games. Santana is battling some mild soreness around his right lat and the Brewers don't want to risk it turning into something more. Alex Presley will get another start in right field Thursday versus the Reds.
May 5 - 3:11 PM

Jason Heyward (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Thursday.

Heyward is still dealing with discomfort in his right wrist and hasn't played since Sunday, when he went 0-for-5 against the Braves. Kris Bryant is in right field and Tommy La Stella is at third base Thursday in the Cubs' big series opener against the Nationals.
May 5 - 3:06 PM

Matt Adams has been diagnosed with a knee contusion.

Adams suffered the bruise Thursday in an awkward collision at first base with the Phillies' Darin Ruf. The big left-handed swinger is considered day-to-day for now. Brandon Moss moved from left field to first base and Jeremy Hazelbaker took over in left.
