Joe Wieland (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday at the Padres' spring training complex.

Wieland, currently on the 60-day disabled list, is nine months removed from Tommy John surgery and will continued to be moved along slowly. If he can avoid setbacks, Wieland should be game-ready sometime after the All-Star break.

Robinson Cano belted his first homer as a Mariner Thursday -- a three-run shot -- in a loss to the Rangers.

It was Cano's only hit in five trips to the plate, but it was a big one as it began a six-run rally in the third inning to give the M's a short-lived lead. Cano has driven in eight runs in his first 15 games with Seattle but has just three extra-base hits and is sporting a rather pedestrian .271/.333/.356 batting line.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Doug Fister (lat) is on pace to make his debut for the Nationals on May 7.

It's possible the exact date will be altered a bit, but that's the day that looks to make the most sense right now. Fister threw two innings Thursday in an extended spring training game and had "no issues," according to manager Matt Williams. "He felt good about it," Williams added. "Reports are his first inning was better than his second inning, which is a good sign." Fister will begin a once-every-five-days schedule and is on pace to make his season debut in three weeks.

Shane Victorino (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Victorino was originally scheduled to begin his rehab assignment earlier, but inclement weather got in the way. The plan calls for him to play Saturday before getting the day off. He'll then play back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday, setting up a return on Thursday. The veteran outfielder was forced to begin the year on the DL with a hamstring strain.

Royals placed OF Lorenzo Cain on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

It's not a big surprise, as Cain left Wednesday's game against the Astros with a Grade 1 groin strain. He's hoping to return in two weeks, but won't rush things. Jarrod Dyson should see and uptick in playing time during his absence and is worth picking up for fantasy owners who need speed.

Manny Machado (knee) ran the bases again Thursday.

Machado ran the bases for the first time Wednesday, so it's a good sign that he was right back out there. The plan calls for him to slide for the first time Friday and play in an extended spring training game on Saturday. He's beginning to make encouraging progress.

Mike Napoli (finger) is back in the starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide, but he managed to avoid a more serious injury. He'll bat cleanup Thursday against Chris Sale.

Jose Abreu will get the day off Thursday against the Red Sox.

Abreu is currently in a 1-for-20 stretch, so it's not a bad time to give him a breather. Paul Konerko will make the start at first base.

Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that the Mets attended a throwing session for Joel Hanrahan (elbow) on Thursday.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported last week that the Yankees, Royals, Athletics, Red Sox, and Dodgers were among the other teams expected to be in attendance. Hanrahan is working his way back from Tommy John and flexor tendon surgeries and should be ready to contribute in the majors soon. The Mets might make sense for him, as he could get some save chances with Bobby Parnell (Tommy John surgery) out for the year and Jose Valverde appearing quite vulnerable.

Brett Anderson underwent successful surgery Thursday on his fractured left index finger.

Anderson had four pins inserted into the broken finger to stabilize it and allow for proper healing. The left-hander has already been placed on the disabled list and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks.
Apr 17 - 3:28 PM

Bryce Harper (quad) is back in the Nationals' starting lineup Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Harper sat out Wednesday with tightness in his left quad. It obviously wasn't a serious issue. He'll hit second and playing left field against Adam Wainwright.
Apr 17 - 3:13 PM

Angel Pagan is out of the Giants' starting lineup on Thursday because of minor knee soreness.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reports that Pagan is "playable" but that he wanted to practice caution here in mid-April. Pagan should return to action Friday.
