Latest Headlines

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that there are no current discussions between the Cardinals and White Sox regarding right-hander Jake Peavy.

The Cardinals have been mentioned as a possible landing spot over the past couple of weeks, but there's no momentum toward a deal at this point. The Diamondbacks have also been rumored, but Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that they have dropped out of the running since Brandon McCarthy and Trevor Cahill are expected to return from the disabled list soon. The White Sox have scratched Peavy from his scheduled start on Tuesday, so it still appears likely he'll be moved before Wednesday's deadline.

Matt Garza (groin) will make his season debut on Monday against the Reds.

Tommy Milone is headed back to the Brewers' bullpen. Garza got a late start to the season because of a strained groin, but he made a couple rehab starts with no issues. The veteran right-hander has put up an ugly 5.18 ERA over the last two seasons and can be ignored outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Ian Desmond (hand) will begin taking batting practice this weekend.

Desmond has begun hitting off a tee and will progress to soft toss and then batting practice over the next few days. He's already been going through full infield drills. The Rockies haven't said when Desmond would begin a rehab assignment, but sometime perhaps late next week seems like a reasonable goal.

X-rays on Xander Bogaerts' left thumb came back negative.

While the thumb isn't fractured, it's still swollen and bothers Bogaerts when he tries to swing a bat. He's not in the Red Sox' lineup on Friday but is hoping to be back in there on Saturday. The shortstop was injured Thursday while sliding into second base.

Giants placed LHP Madison Bumgarner on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, with bruised ribs and a Grade 1-2 strain of his left shoulder AC joint.

Bumgarner suffered the injuries during a dirk bike accident on Thursday. Seriously. He will be re-evaluated next week, but FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that the left-hander is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks. It's the first time in his career that Bumgarner has been placed on the disabled list. Ty Blach seems likely to take his spot in the Giants' rotation, although Tyler Beede and Chris Stratton are also options.

David Price (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday.

Price used his curveball during the session and said he felt fine. The left-hander still had some lingering soreness in his left elbow recently, so his throwing program was scaled back a bit, but it looks like it was a minor setback. Price won't throw off a mound again until at least Monday or Tuesday. We look to still be in the relatively early stages of Price's throwing program, so it's unclear when he might be game-ready.

Indians activated 2B Jason Kipnis from the 10-day disabled list.

Kipnis is starting at second base and batting sixth against Jose Quintana and the White Sox on Friday. He should move back up to the No. 2 spot soon once he knocks the rust off. Jose Ramirez will slide back over to third base.
Apr 21 - 4:25 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

But he hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, which is obviously encouraging. Cespedes said he felt a "shock" in his left hamstring on Thursday and he'll be held out of action for a few days. The Mets have an outfield of Michael Conforto in left, Juan Lagares in center and Curtis Granderson in right Friday.
Apr 21 - 4:13 PM

Mets placed 1B Lucas Duda on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a hyperextended left elbow.

Duda hurt the elbow was trying to field a throw on Wednesday. It's unclear at this point how much time he'll miss. With Wilmer Flores also on the DL, Jay Bruce figures to handle first base regularly, clearing space in the lineup for Michael Conforto.
Apr 21 - 4:05 PM

Rangers released OF Josh Hamilton.

Hamilton injured his right knee while rehabbing from surgery on his left knee and will have to undergo yet another surgery. We've lost count of how many operations he's had at this point. Hamilton's career is almost surely over.
Apr 21 - 3:46 PM

Jayson Werth (groin) remained out of the lineup Friday.

Werth tweaked his groin Wednesday and will miss a second straight start. The hope is that he'll be ready by Sunday. Chris Heisey is in left field. The Nationals are also sitting out Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Wieters, as Adam Lind is at first base and Jose Lobaton is catching.
Apr 21 - 3:43 PM

Nationals activated SS Trea Turner from the 10-day disabled list.

Turner played in a couple extended spring training games to test out his right hamstring and had no issues, clearing the way for his activation. He is not in Friday's lineup, however, as Wilmer Difo is at shortstop. Turner batted .158/.158/.211 with three steals over his first five games before going on the DL.
