Latest Headlines

Roy Oswalt is officially scheduled to make his Rockies debut Thursday in D.C. against the Nationals.

Oswalt signed a minor league contract with Colorado on May 2 and has registered a stellar 2.16 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 25/7 K/BB ratio across 33 1/3 innings since reporting to Double-A Tulsa. The veteran right-hander is worth a try in most standard mixed fantasy leagues, though keep in mind that he struggled last year with the Rangers.

George Springer (hamstring) is back in the Astros' lineup Friday.

Jose Altuve (head, shoulder) is back in there, as well, as the Astros are at full strength versus Jharel Cotton and the A's. Evan Gattis is catching over Brian McCann in this one.
Apr 28 - 4:40 PM

Noah Syndergaard (biceps) is expected to start Sunday versus the Nationals after getting through a throwing session Friday with no issues.

"My arm feels great," Syndergaard said Friday. "I should have thrown yesterday." Syndergaard's fantasy owners were worried after he had to be scratched from Thursday's start due to biceps tendinitis, and especially after he admitted that it was hard for him to lift his arm above his shoulder. However, he's apparently made a quick recovery. The Mets won't officially clear him for Sunday until they see how he feels Saturday. Sean Gilmartin is on standby just in case.
Apr 28 - 4:34 PM

Jose Abreu (hip/groin) is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Abreu had said he planned to play Friday after leaving Wednesday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue, but the White Sox have decided to give him another day. Matt Davidson is at first base, Tyler Saladino is in the leadoff spot and Yolmer Sanchez is at second base.
Apr 28 - 4:03 PM

Nelson Cruz was scratched from Friday's lineup with a cramp in his hamstring.

He should be back in there in a day or two as long as it's indeed merely a cramp. Taylor Motter has taken Cruz's spot in the lineup.
Apr 28 - 3:44 PM

Blue Jays designated C Jarrod Saltalamacchia for assignment.

Saltalamacchia was off to as bad of a start as you could imagine, going 1-for-25 with 16 strikeouts while failing to throw out a single baserunner in nine attempts. He'll get a minor league deal somewhere, but the soon-to-be 32-year-old has hit an ugly .159/.267/.317 since the beginning of last season. Luke Maile will now back up Russell Martin.
Apr 28 - 3:40 PM

David Freese (hamstring) remained out of the Pirates' lineup Friday.

Freese still felt something in his right hamstring while taking swings in the cage Friday. He hasn't played since Monday. The disabled list will be in play if Freese doesn't improve in a hurry, but the Pirates are still listing him as day-to-day for now and he'll try to field some grounders pre-game Friday. They have Josh Harrison at third base and Gift Ngoepe at second Friday.
Apr 28 - 3:26 PM

Dustin Pedroia is batting sixth for the Red Sox on Friday versus the Cubs.

It's the first time in his career that he's batted sixth. With Pedroia (.242/.311/.258) moving down, Xander Bogaerts (.313/.353/.328) is up in the leadoff spot.
Apr 28 - 3:18 PM

Yankees activated SS Didi Gregorius from the 10-day disabled list.

Gregorius missed almost the entire first month of the season with a strained right shoulder that he suffered during the World Baseball Classic, but he played in some rehab games with no issues. He's starting at shortstop and batting sixth Friday.
Apr 28 - 2:42 PM

Lucas Duda (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment on Friday.

Duda is eligible for activation on Sunday and could be ready at that time after recovering from a hyperextended left elbow. The Mets need him with Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) headed to the disabled list.
Apr 28 - 2:39 PM

Mets placed OF Yoenis Cespedes on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

It's no surprise, of course, as Cespedes had to exit the field with assistance after aggravating his left hamstring injury. Cespedes was slated to undergo an MRI on Friday, but the Mets have yet to reveal how long they think the slugger might be sidelined. Michael Conforto will play every day with Cespedes on the shelf.
Apr 28 - 2:37 PM

Cam Bedrosian (groin) has yet to begin a throwing program.

Bedrosian has been on the disabled list for nearly a week with a strained right groin but remains shut down. He's eligible to return from the DL next Tuesday, but it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. Bud Norris has been capably filling the Angels' closer role with Bedrosian out.
