Latest Headlines

Brian Roberts (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list for this weekend's series against the Yankees.

Roberts, who is coming back from hamstring surgery, went 2-for-4 with a double in his first rehab game Tuesday and walked twice in a suspended game on Wednesday night. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he'll be the regular second baseman upon his return, so while he can't be trusted to stay healthy, he should be relevant in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that he has increasing interest in free agent Tim Lincecum.

Lincecum is scheduled to throw a showcase for interested teams on Friday in Arizona, and over 20 major league clubs are expected to have a representative in attendance. Bochy and the Giants are viewing Lincecum as a potential long reliever. The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner probably prefers to start.

Garrett Richards "seems questionable" for his Friday start, per MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez.

Richards battled some dehydration this past weekend and did not throw his usual between-starts bullpen session on Tuesday or Wednesday. There should be a status update soon from the Angels. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 2.34 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings this season and was supposed to open the Angels' weekend series against the visiting Rays.

Joe Panik (groin) is doubtful to play until Saturday.

Panik is out of the Giants' starting lineup for the fifth straight game Wednesday against the Reds, though he was able to do some jogging and agility drills on Tuesday. If the second baseman doesn't make it back this weekend, the Giants will have to consider a disabled list stint (retroactive to April 30). Kelby Tomlinson is starting at second on Wednesday.

Domingo Santana was scratched from the Brewers' starting lineup due to lingering shoulder soreness.

It's been bothering him all week, though he was able to play on Tuesday. Santana is considered day-to-day for now. Alex Presley will start in right field and Jonathan Villar is now leading off against Anaheim.

Nick Markakis is out of the Braves' starting lineup on Wednesday due to a family emergency.

Markakis has been excused from the club to travel back to his home in Maryland, though he's expected to return for the Braves' weekend series against the Diamondbacks. Atlanta has a scheduled day off Thursday.
May 4 - 11:07 AM

Ryan Braun is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Angels.

Braun was given the day off Tuesday due to some routine soreness. He will start in left field and bat third Wednesday versus Angels left-hander Hector Santiago. Braun, 32, is slashing .372/.443/.605 this season.
May 4 - 11:05 AM

Tommy Pham (oblique) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Memphis.

Pham is finally ready for live action again after missing a full month with a strained left oblique. He should rejoin the Cardinals as an active backup outfielder early next week. The 28-year-old has a cool .809 OPS in 176 career major league plate appearances and he can play all three outfield spots.
May 4 - 10:40 AM

Billy Hamilton (thumb) will sit out Wednesday.

Hamilton was pulled from Tuesday night's game against the Giants after reaggravating his left thumb, which he originally jammed April 15 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Consider the speedster day-to-day. Tyler Holt is starting in center field and batting second Wednesday versus San Francisco right-hander Jake Peavy.

Zack Cozart (knee) is back in the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Giants.

Cozart tweaked his surgically-repaired right knee in Sunday's series finale against the Pirates and was held out of the first two games of this three-game set with the Giants. It sounds like that was all mostly precautionary. The 30-year-old shortstop has an impressive .347/.350/.533 batting line in 19 games this season for Cincinnati.
May 4 - 9:47 AM

Jason Heyward (wrist) remains absent from the Cubs' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Pirates.

Heyward has been bothered by right wrist discomfort for a couple of weeks and recently had a bad flareup. He has now missed three straight games. Ben Zobrist is in right field, Tommy La Stella is at second base, Javier Baez is at third base, and Kris Bryant is in left field Wednesday afternoon against Bucs right-hander Juan Nicasio.
May 4 - 9:22 AM

Lorenzo Cain hit a walk-off RBI single to complete the Royals' 7-6, comeback win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

It will go down in the scorebook as a single, but Cain tattooed a Jonathan Papelbon pitch to center that was just out of the reach of a sprawling Michael Taylor, plating Mike Moustakas and ending what was a three-run inning for the defending champs. Cain finished 2-for-5 in the game. After seeing his average dip to .200 a little over a week ago, Cain is 9-for-26 (.346) during a six-game hitting streak. It has his overall line up to .240/.305/.302.
