Padres manager Bud Black said there's a "definite possibility" that Cory Luebke (elbow) won't pitch in 2013.

Luebke is currently working his way back from Tommy John surgery and has been shut down since last month with renewed soreness in his elbow. He will try to resume a throwing program in 2-3 weeks. While the Padres aren't counting on anything from Luebke right now, they haven't completely ruled out a mid-August return.

Giants placed RHP Matt Cain on the 15-day disabled list with nerve irritation in his right elbow.

Cain has struggled mightily since his return from the disabled list, posting a 6.15 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through his 10 starts, and the nerve issue could be partially to blame. Chris Heston will take his place in the Giants rotation and start on Sunday.

Dodgers placed OF Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Puig re-injured his hamstring during Thursday's game against the Reds. He has appeared in just 77 games in what has been an injury-plagued season. Jose Peraza was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Chris Heston is expected to start on Sunday versus the Cardinals.

It had been the struggling Matt Cain's spot. Heston won't have spent the required 10 days in the minors by Sunday, so the Giants will have to create a phantom injury for someone (likely Cain). The righty was sent down a week ago as a means to cut down his workload, as he didn't make any appearances in the minors.

George Springer (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Saturday.

"George is ready to go," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday of Springer. "Today was one of the best days he's had." Springer is hoping to be activated by the Astros sometime next week if all goes well. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist.

Josh Hamilton (knee) took batting practice on Friday.

Hamilton has been on the shelf for the last couple weeks with a nagging left knee ailment but finally appears to be making some progress. He could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday, although the Rangers could easily wait until Tuesday when rosters expand.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Glen Perkins (back) is expected to be available Friday but won't return to his closer role immediately.

Molitor wants Perkins to show that he can be healthy and effective until he puts him back in the ninth inning. It will probably only take an appearance or two, but until then Kevin Jepsen will continue to handle the closing duties.
Aug 28 - 5:38 PM

Miguel Sano is not playing Friday due to a minor right hamstring injury.

Sano had been slated to play third base, but Twins manager Paul Molitor has decided to play it safe and sit him out. The hope is that he'll be ready to return to the designated hitter spot Saturday.

Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday due to right shoulder fatigue.

It's yet another new ailment for Ramirez, who has somehow managed to avoid the disabled list this season despite a host of different maladies. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field.
Aug 28 - 5:18 PM

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski on Friday officially ruled out Clay Buchholz (elbow) for the rest of the season.

Buchholz is slated to resume a throwing program next week as he works his way back from a right flexor strain, but his possible return in September never looked likely. Dombrowski added that the righty's $13 million option for 2016 will be picked up as long as he's healthy, but that's no sure thing at the moment.
Aug 28 - 5:10 PM

Carlos Correa is missing a second straight start Friday due to what he describes as "just a little soreness" in his left hamstring.

He'll have three days off when you add in Thursday's off day. It doesn't sound like a major concern, as Correa should have a shot to return to action by the end of the weekend. Marwin Gonzalez is again getting the call at shortstop Friday.
Aug 28 - 5:07 PM

Alex Rodriguez is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

He's not going to be in there on Saturday and Sunday, either, with the Yankees not having the designated hitter spot available in Atlanta. A-Rod will serve as a pinch-hitter this weekend before returning to action Monday in Boston.
