Juan Carlos Oviedo (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Sunday.

It's his first since last September's Tommy John surgery. It's possible Oviedo could make it back to the Rays' bullpen late in the season, but they signed him in hopes that he could contribute in 2014.

Adam Jones was pulled from Friday's game against the Yankees after appearing to re-injure his hamstring.

Jones left Thursday's game with cramping in his hamstring, but tested it out pregame and was deemed good to go on Friday. He appeared to re-injure it though while running to first base on in his first at-bat. Expect the O's to provide an update on his status shortly.

Clayton Kershaw (back) made it through Friday's bullpen session without any issues and will progress to facing live hitters next week.

It's another positive step toward a return to the Dodgers rotation this season for the star southpaw. If all goes well with his next session, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab start. Barring any setbacks, a return in early September doesn't look so outrageous any longer.

Blue Jays acquired C Dioner Navarro from the White Sox for LHP Colton Turner.

Navarro has plenty of familiarity with the Jays after spending the 2014 and 2015 seasons in Toronto. He'll provide solid depth behind the plate as well as an extra bat off the bench for the Jays during the stretch run.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays plan on releasing Desmond Jennings on Saturday.

Once considered one of the most promising young outfielders in the game, the 29-year-old has battled injuries and poor performance for much of the past three seasons. In 65 games this year, Jennings hit just .200/.281/.350 with seven homers, 20 RBI and a 58/21 K/BB ratio in 225 plate appearances. Still, he's only 29-years-old and there should be plenty of clubs willing to take a chance on him.

Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

It's his first start since Sunday, when he exited his first game with the 'Stros with a tight right hamstring. Gurriel is in the designated hitter spot and batting sixth against Drew Smyly and the Rays.

Jay Bruce (calf) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Bruce was pulled from Wednesday's game and sat out Thursday with a right calf cramp, but he's fine. He's in right field and batting sixth versus Adam Morgan and the Phillies.
Aug 26 - 4:56 PM

Diamondbacks activated OF A.J. Pollock from the 60-day disabled list.

Pollock will make his season debut for the D'Backs on Friday, as he's in center field and batting second against Brandon Finnegan and the Reds. The outfielder was on the shelf for the bulk of the first five months of the season with a fractured elbow.

Kyle Seager (foot) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

It's the third straight game he's missed after he fouled a ball off his foot on Tuesday. The good news is that Seager will be available off the bench and is expected to be back in the lineup Saturday. Consider him day-to-day. Shawn O'Malley is at third base.

An MRI on Andrew Benintendi's left knee didn't reveal any structural damage.

Benintendi took a nasty spill during Wednesday's game while trying to avoid a tag at second base, but it appears he's avoided a serious injury. A timetable for his return isn't known at this point, but the Red Sox should get him back sometime next month.
Aug 26 - 4:30 PM

Steven Matz (shoulder) will resume throwing on Friday.

Based on how the left-hander feels, but Mets will make a determination as to whether he can start on Tuesday versus the Marlins. Matz is dealing with some mild discomfort in his pitching shoulder, but the club thinks he'll ultimately be fine.
Aug 26 - 4:18 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that there's a good chance the club will skip Jacob deGrom's next start.

Collins had previous mentioned the possibility of deGrom's next outing being pushed back, but it appears he'll get even more rest. The righty has been lit up for 13 runs over his last two starts, so a little break would probably do him some good. Sean Gilmartin, Gabriel Ynoa, Logan Verrett, Rafael Montero and Seth Lugo on short rest are possibilities to start in deGrom's spot on Monday.
