Steve Johnson (oblique) is scheduled to throw live batting practice this Thursday.

If it goes well, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. Johnson has been on the disabled list since June 6 because of a badly-strained oblique. The current timetable calls for a late-July return.

Dodgers GM Andrew Friedman expects Julio Urias to balance time between the bullpen and the starting rotation this year.

Urias is a future top-of-the-rotation starter but the Dodgers understandably want to limit his workload in year one. "Julio is an extremely talented pitching prospect whose talent is a little bit ahead of his development," said Friedman. The Dodgers haven't decided if Urias will stick around after Friday's start against the Mets. Urias is starting in place of Alex Wood, who was scratched with forearm tightness.

Thursday's game between the White Sox and Royals has been postponed due to rain.

No makeup date has been announced. Danny Duffy and Miguel Gonzalez had been the scheduled starters. They'll start Friday's game instead. That's a huge break for Kansas City as Chris Sale's start has been pushed back to Monday against the Mets.

Royals manager Ned Yost confirmed Mike Moustakas will miss the rest of the year with a torn ACL.

Moustakas is getting a second opinion but Yost isn't optimistic. "To lose two All-Stars on one play is kind of tough," said Yost. "But you just deal with it." Moustakas should be ready for the start of spring training next year. With Moustakas done for the season and Alex Gordon sidelined with a broken wrist, Kansas City's bid for a third consecutive AL pennant isn't off to a great start.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports MLB has suspended Hector Olivera 82 games for his involvement in an alleged domestic violence incident last month.

Olivera will not appeal the suspension, which was made retroactive to April 30. He'll be eligible for reinstatement on August 1. The Braves put Olivera on administrative leave after he was charged with misdemeanor assault and battery on April 13. The team tried to trade him after the incident but couldn't find any takers. The 31-year-old has hit .245 with two homers and 13 RBI across 30 big league appearances.

Rougned Odor's suspension has been reduced from eight games to seven.

His appeal was heard by the league on Tuesday. Odor will begin serving his ban on Friday. Jurickson Profar is expected to take his place on the active roster. This is probably as good a result as Odor could have hoped for. Some thought Odor actually got off easy after slugging Jose Bautista in a game last week. He's eligible to return June 4 against Seattle.

Randal Grichuk is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup Thursday night against the Nationals.

Grichuk registered his third straight multi-hit game on Wednesday, homering and singling in a loss to the Cubs, but the Cardinals will go lefty-heavy on Thursday versus Washington righty Joe Ross. Jeremy Hazelbaker is starting in center field and batting leadoff.
May 26 - 3:49 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) is in the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday against the Rockies.

Just as he pledged late Wednesday night, after making an early exit with cramping in his right hamstring. Pedroia is batting second for the Red Sox on Thursday night against Colorado right-hander Jon Gray. Jackie Bradley Jr. will take a spin at leadoff with Mookie Betts getting a breather.
May 26 - 3:08 PM

Mookie Betts will take a night off Thursday.

It's his first absence in 88 games dating back to last season. Chris Young will start in right field and Blake Swihart is in left field Thursday versus the Rockies. Jackie Bradley is hitting leadoff against Jon Gray.
May 26 - 3:06 PM

Daniel Murphy is getting the night off Thursday.

Stephen Drew will start at second base in the Nationals' series opener against the visiting Cardinals. Murphy went 2-for-4 in Wednesday's loss to the Mets and is batting .394/.426/.617 in 46 games this year.
May 26 - 2:59 PM

Jose Bautista (suspension) is in the Blue Jays' starting lineup Thursday versus the Yankees.

Bautista had his one-game suspension appeal hearing Thursday morning in New York City, but a ruling probably won't come for another couple days. He is batting leadoff Thursday afternoon against CC Sabathia.
May 26 - 2:19 PM

Mark Teixeira received a cortisone injection for his sore neck on Thursday.

He's expected to miss the next three games, including Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays. Teixeira began experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday, but an MRI ruled out anything serious. He should back in action Sunday if the cortisone has the intended effect.
