Rockies declined Rafael Betancourt's $4.25 million mutual option for the 2014 season.

Betancourt underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in August and will miss the entire 2014 campaign, so the decision to decline his option wasn't a difficult one for the Rockies. Betancourt, 38, hasn't said whether he plans to attempt a comeback in 2015.

Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Cabrera had to leave Wednesday's game due to back spasms, but he rested up during the off day Thursday and is now ready to go. He's at shortstop and batting second against Julio Urias and the Dodgers.

Christian Yelich (back) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

He's now missed six games with back spasms. Yelich has some history with back issues, although it doesn't appear at this point the disabled list is being considered. Cole Gillespie will start in left field again.
May 27 - 2:59 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Stanton hasn't played since Tuesday due to soreness in his right side. The Marlins haven't indicated to this point that a trip to the disabled list is a possibility, but obviously the likelihood increases the longer this drags on. Ichiro Suzuki is again filling in in right field and leading off.
May 27 - 2:58 PM

Matt Adams (back) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Adams departed Thursday's game with mid-back stiffness. It's viewed as a day-to-day thing for the time being. Brandon Moss is handling first base Friday.

Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Saturday.

Carrasco has been throwing off a mound for two weeks and hasn't had any issues with his strained hamstring. The right-hander figures to need a couple rehab outings before rejoining the Indians' rotation early next month.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks are expected to place Shelby Miller (finger) on the disabled list Friday.

Manager Chip Hale revealed Thursday that Miller is still dealing with discomfort in a finger on his right hand as a result of an injury last month. It's fair to question whether Miller is truly hurt or whether the D'Backs just want to give the struggling righty some time off, but either way he's not going to start for them for a while. Archie Bradley will replace Miller in the rotation.
May 27 - 1:13 PM

Anthony Rizzo is absent from the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Rizzo has just three hits in his last 38 at-bats, so it's probably a good time to get him a breather with a lefty (Adam Morgan) on the mound. Jason Heyward is also receiving a day off, as the Cubs have Kris Bryant at first base, Javier Baez at third base and Matt Szczur in right field.
May 27 - 10:31 AM

Maikel Franco (ankle) is back in the Phillies' lineup Friday.

Franco had to be pulled from Wednesday game after spraining his right ankle, but he's ready to roll after Thursday's off day. Franco is batting third and playing third base against Jon Lester and the Cubs.
May 27 - 10:05 AM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will throw a simulated game on Saturday.

Gallardo was cleared to face hitters after getting through a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. It's possible he'll be cleared to begin a rehab assignment after the simulated game, although that hasn't been decided yet. "We’re hoping that [simulated game Saturday] goes well, and if that goes well, we’ve got to decide whether he needs to do that one more time or he goes out [for a rehab stint]," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Jonathan Villar went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored to help the Brewers take out the Braves 6-2 on Thursday.

If he's not doing it with his legs, he's doing it with his stick, as evidenced by Thursday's solo dinger. The homer was his second of the season to give him 16 RBI, and he's got 21 runs scored through Thursday's game. More importantly, Villar has 15 steals to lead the National League, and his .295/.392/.416 line is all gravy as well.
