Mets optioned OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Juan Lagares was called up to take his place on the active roster. Nieuwenhuis has only logged 16 at-bats this month, so he'll get a chance at regular playing time in the minors.

Hanley Ramirez (side) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez's side tightened up on him after a swing Wednesday, forcing him from the game. It doesn't seem to be a potential disabled lit injury, but he's not ready to play yet. The Red Sox have Travis Shaw at first base and Marco Hernandez at third.

The Nationals have not yet ruled out Stephen Strasburg (back) starting on Sunday against the Reds.

Manager Dusty Baker said that Strasburg is feeling good and wants to make the start, but the club is still trying to decide whether they should hold him back a bit longer. While Lucas Giolito does still seem like a pretty good bet for Sunday, it does seem like there's a much better chance for Strasburg to take the ball than there was a day or two ago.

Twins optioned DH Byung-ho Park to Triple-A Rochester.

The writing had been on the wall, as Park was really struggling and receiving less and less playing time. He's batted just .191/.275/.409 on the season and only .123/.208/.236 over his last 30 games. He'll hope to iron out his issues at Rochester and earn another opportunity.

Twins activated 3B/OF Miguel Sano from the 15-day disabled list.

Sano missed a month of action with a strained hamstring but is ready to go after eight rehab games. He would appear to be in line to receive most of his at-bats in the designated hitter spot with Byung-ho Park being optioned to Triple-A Rochester. Max Kepler should continue playing regularly in right field.

The Blue Jays don't expect to get Jose Bautista (toe) back before the All-Star break.

It's no surprise, as Bautista remains in a walking boot and shut down from baseball activities as he battles turf toe. There is no timetable for the slugger's return. Ezequiel Carrera has been handling right field and the leadoff spot for the Jays.

Buster Posey went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 12-6 win over the A's.

Posey slugged a three-run homer to center off A's starter Dillon Overton in the third inning. The stalwart backstop has notched multiple hits in three of the last five games. On the whole, he is slashing .288/.349/.464 with 18 doubles, nine homers and 39 RBI across 267 at-bats.

Madison Bumgarner posted a rare misstep of a start in Thursday's 12-6 win over the A's, allowing four runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Bumgarner made headlines before the game, as the Giants became the first team to forego the DH since 1976, allowing the southpaw ace to take his hacks. He doubled in his first at-bat for his lone hit of the game. Bumgarner finished 1-for-4 at the dish. As for the pitching side of things (he does that, too), not so hot. At least by his lofty standards. A sign of his dominance, the four earned runs on Thursday were the most he has yielded in 17 starts. He will carry a 2.20 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 126/29 K/BB ratio into a home start against the Rockies. As the schedule stands right now, that would be his last start before the All-Star Break.

Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Braves' 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

D'Arnaud scored the first run of the game for the Braves in the third inning, motoring around from first base on Freddie Freeman's triple, and he added RBI hits in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old, who has played five different positions for the Braves this year, is batting a respectable .276/.349/.366 in 42 games. He's not much to look at, but those in deep NL-only leagues may want to take notice.
Jul 1 - 1:14 AM

Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with four RBI, including a three-run double in the ninth inning that capped an eight-run inning for the visitors, as the Tigers beat the Rays 10-7 on Thursday.

Maybin led off the ninth inning with a single, and five runs later, he finished off the Rays with a bases-loaded double that put the Tigers ahead for good. During a modest six-game hitting streak, Maybin is 11-for-24 with three doubles, seven RBI and five runs scored. He's got 20 RBI and 25 runs scored in 39 games total, and the 29-year-old is hitting .359/.413/.428 on the season.
Jul 1 - 12:51 AM

Danny Espinosa led the charge with two home runs and seven RBI as the Nationals routed the Reds 13-4 on Thursday.

Espinosa made his two hits count, cranking a grand slam off Reds starter Brandon Finnegan in the third inning before launching a three-run blast a frame later. It was a strong finish to what was an impressive month for the 29-year-old, as he closes June with nine homers, 21 RBI and 21 runs scored in the month. Espinosa is doing everything he can to keep Trea Turner in the minors for another day.
Jul 1 - 12:31 AM

Kendrys Morales went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a home run to help the Royals down the Cardinals 4-2 on Thursday.

Morales had an RBI double in the sixth inning before belting a solo dinger in the eighth. The home run was his 11th of the year, giving him 39 RBI and 30 runs scored. Morales now has a six-game hitting streak during which he's a ridiculous 16-for-24 (.667). All six games have been of the multi-hit variety. The scorching-hot stretch has his overall line up to .262/.324/.437.
