Royals optioned 2B Johnny Giavotella to Triple-A Omaha.

Giavotella was recalled less than three weeks ago and installed at second base, but he batted only .206/.289/.265 over 10 contests. It's a little surprising that the Royals didn't give him a longer audition, but it appears that they'll go to a combination of Chris Getz, Elliot Johnson and Miguel Tejada at second.

Manuel Margot (calf) is not in the Padres' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

Margot tweaked his calf breaking for a fly ball a few days ago and is still feeling a little sore. Matt Szczur is holding down the fort in center field and batting seventh Thursday against Mets right-hander Rafael Montero. Consider Margot day-to-day.

Brian McCann (concussion) expects to be activated from the disabled list Saturday against the Orioles.

McCann suffered a mild concussion last week but claims to be back to 100 percent and will not need a rehab assignment. Evan Gattis and Juan Centeno have been filling in for him behind the plate.

David Price (elbow) will make his season debut Monday against the White Sox.

He's expected to be a slightly reduced pitch count. Price got knocked around in Wednesday's rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket but his velocity was good and the Red Sox obviously feel comfortable enough to slot him back into their starting rotation. The former Cy Young winner won 17 games and was one of the league leaders in strikeouts last year but it came with one of the worst ERAs of his career (3.99). The Red Sox could sure use another innings-eater with Drew Pomeranz struggling and Steven Wright (knee surgery) out for the year.

Thursday's game between the Reds and Indians has been postponed due to rain.

Mike Clevinger and Tim Adleman had been the scheduled starters. Presumably, they'll be pushed back a day. The game will be made up July 24 at 7:10 PM ET.

Mets activated SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Cabrera missed a little less than two weeks with a sprained thumb. He's not starting Thursday night's game against the Padres but will be available off the bench. Cabrera carries a .257/.339/.381 slash line with three homers, 14 RBI and three steals this season.

Edwin Diaz got the ninth for the Mariners on Thursday and pitched a scoreless inning with a two-run lead for his eighth save.

Diaz seems to be back in the closer's role after just two appearances since losing the job last week. He's not a sure thing at this point and it'd certainly be for the best if he could go a couple of weeks without a blown save, but especially since no one else really stepped up, it should be fine to drop any other Seattle relievers in mixed leagues.

Jay Bruce (back) is in the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Padres.

Bruce sat out Wednesday after making an early exit Tuesday with stiffness in his back. It clearly wasn't anything serious. The veteran outfielder is hitting .250/.331/.513 with 11 home runs and 30 RBI in 41 games this season.
May 25 - 3:58 PM

Cameron Maybin left Thursday's game against the Rays with soreness in his right knee.

Maybin was 1-for-3 before getting replaced in the bottom of the sixth inning. Hopefully it's nothing too serious because he's been in a terrific groove offensively over the last 10 days. Ben Revere took over in center field. Mike Trout started the game at DH.
May 25 - 3:54 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) could be activated ahead of Thursday night's game against the Padres.

Cabrera showed up at Citi Field on Thursday afternoon after going 2-for-5 on a two-game minor league rehab assignment with High-A Binghamton. The shortstop has been on the disabled list since May 13 because of lingering soreness in his left thumb. There should be something more official soon.
May 25 - 3:25 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) has been scratched from the Giants' lineup Thursday.

Nunez tweaked his left hamstring on Wednesday night and the Giants want to play it safe. It doesn't sound like something that will require a lengthy absence. Christian Arroyo is starting at third base now in the matinee game against the Cubs.
May 25 - 12:13 PM

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

It looks to be a routine day of rest. Alexi Amarista will start at second base and bat seventh for the Rockies against Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez.
