Shane Victorino (back) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Astros.

It's the third straight game Victorino has missed. The Red Sox don't expect him to return to the lineup until Tuesday. A combination of Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes will replace Victorino in left field.

Mariners acquired RHP Alex Colome and OF Denard Span from the Rays for RHP Tommy Romero, RHP Andrew Moore and cash considerations.

From the Mariners' perspective, this is a terrific get, as it gives them an outstanding setup man to work in front of all-world closer Edwin Diaz. From a fantasy perspective, it's a devastating blow to Colome owners. Sure, there was a high likelihood that he could be dealt prior to the trade deadline, but most thought they would get at least another month's worth of saves out of him first.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have traded Alex Colome and Denard Span to the Mariners.

Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times hears that Andrew Moore and Tommy Romero are going to Tampa Bay in the deal. It's a big blow to the fantasy value of Colome, who had rebounded after a slow start but is now slated for a setup role in Seattle. Chaz Roe and Jose Alvarado figure to be next in line for saves with the Rays, but manager Kevin Cash can be unpredictable.

Kyle Hendricks tossed seven innings of one-run ball in the Cubs' 6-2 victory over the Giants on Friday.

Hendricks served up a solo home run to Gorkys Hernandez in the fourth inning, but that was the only run and one of just two hits he gave up on the day. The right-hander walked a pair and struck out seven, needing just 88 pitches to navigate through his seven frames. The excellent showing dropped Hendricks' ERA for the season down to 3.16. He will go up against the Pirates in Pittsburgh when he next toes the slab.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Mark Trumbo (knee) will be placed on the disabled list after Friday's game.

Trumbo has been diagnosed with arthritis and chondromalacia in his right knee. He had been hopeful of only missing a few days of action, but Showalter said Trumbo will have to be shut down for 3-4 days after getting an injection so they will go ahead and make a roster move. Barring a setback, it doesn't seem like it will be a long DL stint. The O's have Craig Gentry and Joey Rickard in the corner outfield spots and Trey Mancini at designated hitter Friday.

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) began a running program Friday.

It's obviously a significant step forward as Cespedes works his way back from a strained right hip flexor. He's likely to require a few rehab games before the Mets activate him. Cespedes has been sidelined for the previous week and a half with the injury.
May 25 - 5:12 PM

Troy Tulowitzki (heels) has been cleared to run.

Tulowitzki had been running on an anti-gravity treadmill but is now ready to run on regular ground. It's obviously good news, but Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that it's "probably a ways away still" before the shortstop will be ready to return. He's been out all season following surgery on both heels to remove bone spurs.
May 25 - 4:43 PM

Greg Bird (knee) will be activated from the disabled list Saturday.

Things had been pointing that way and Yankees manager Aaron Boone made it official Friday. Bird has been sidelined all season following March ankle surgery but is ready to roll after playing 12 rehab games. He should see the lion's share of playing time at first base moving forward.
May 25 - 4:33 PM

Miguel Cabrera (hamstring) did some light straight-line running on the warning track Friday.

Cabrera also took batting practice again. He's nearing a return to the Tigers' lineup and might not need a rehab assignment, but he'll need to run the bases and show he can do some quick bursts before being cleared. The slugger has missed most of May with a strained right hamstring and has also dealt with some soreness in his hips and back.
May 25 - 4:25 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Daniel Murphy (knee) will begin a rehab assignment Saturday.

It qualifies as a nice surprise, as Murphy as of earlier this week hadn't been able to play in extended spring training games because he was sick. How many rehab games Murphy will require before being activated isn't known, but it surely will be a good number of them since he's been out all season following last Daniel Murphy last October's microfracture surgery on his right knee.
May 25 - 4:17 PM

Starling Marte (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Marte will go through a full workout on Friday and if he gets through that with no setbacks and feels fine Saturday he might be activated. Austin Meadows is a candidate to be optioned back to Triple-A Indianapolis even though he's played so well, as there wouldn't be an everyday role for him.
May 25 - 4:00 PM

Pirates activated RHP Joe Musgrove from the 10-day disabled list.

Musgrove will make his Pirates debut on Friday at home against the Cardinals after missing almost the first two months of the season with a shoulder issue. The right-hander came over from the Astros via trade this past offseason in the deal that sent Gerrit Cole to Houston.
