Jake Arrieta (shoulder) is not expected to be healthy at the start of the 2014 regular season.

Cubs manager Rick Renteria acknowledged that on Thursday after it was revealed that Arrieta battled shoulder tightness over the winter. The Cubs have several rotation candidates in camp, but they were hoping for a smooth spring from the 27-year-old Arrieta, who posted a 3.66 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 51 2/3 innings last season after arriving via trade from the Orioles.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Nationals have shown interest in Pat Neshek.

Neshek, who is headed for free agency in 2018, acknowledged that it's likely he'll be traded before the July 31 deadline. Nobody is more desperate for a closer than the Nationals and Neshek would seem to be a perfect fit. It's rare for teams to trade within the division but perhaps the two sides would make an exception. The Nats have also expressed interest in White Sox closer David Robertson and Padres lefty Brad Hand.

Addison Russell went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored as the Cubs pounded the Marlins 11-1 on Thursday.

The Cubs' cleanup hitter on this day certainly did his fair share of cleaning up, homering in the seventh inning and knocking two more doubles over the course of the game. It's been a difficult year for the 23-year-old, but he's now hitting .297 (14-for-47) with four homers this month. Overall, Russell still has some work to do on his .234/.304/.413 line.

Chase Headley was unavailable for Thursday's game against the Angels due to back spasms.

Manager Joe Girardi isn't sure if he'll be able to play Friday against Texas. Ronald Torreyes handled the hot corner in Headley's absence on Thursday night. It's been a rough couple of weeks for the Yankees, who have lost eight of nine while falling into a first-place tie with the Red Sox in the AL East. Losing Headley wouldn't help matters.

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

The Dodgers are going with a mostly right-handed lineup (Cody Bellinger is the one exception) against Mets lefty Steven Matz. Chris Taylor will fill in at shortstop and bat second for the Dodgers. Seager enjoyed his second career three-homer game on Tuesday night.

Jose Quintana pitched a sharp game in Thursday's 9-0 win over the Twins, firing off 6 2/3 innings of scoreless ball.

Quintana scattered five hits while striking out nine. He did not walk a batter over his strong 6 2/3 innings of work. The 28-year-old southpaw threw 119 pitches (69 strikes) in the outing. After a slow start to the season, Quintana has limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 5.30 to 4.69 in that space. A home start against the Yankees shows next on his schedule.

Danny Duffy (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

Duffy is scheduled to throw 40-45 pitches. He'll need a few starts to get his pitch count back up after missing the last few weeks with a strained oblique. If all goes according to plan, Kansas City's ace should be back around the All-Star break.

Mets manager Terry Collins said the team will consider moving Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) to second base when he returns from the disabled list.

Cabrera is expected to return on Friday. He's already made 11 errors this year and Collins would prefer to keep Jose Reyes at shortstop. T.J. Rivera has been filling in at second base for Neil Walker, who is out with a torn hamstring. Cabrera has started 197 games at second base in his career, though he hasn't played there since 2014.

George Springer (hand) hopes to be in the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Springer lobbied to stay in Thursday's game after taking a pitch off his left hand but was overruled by manager A.J. Hinch. His X-rays came back negative and the Astros are hoping he'll be available for Friday night's series opener. The Astros appear to have dodged a major bullet here.

Angels GM Billy Eppler confirmed that Matt Shoemaker is still dealing with "symptoms" related to a strained forearm.

Shoemaker was tentatively scheduled to return Sunday against the Red Sox but instead was sent back to Los Angeles for further evaluation. A recent MRI cleared Shoemaker of any structural damage, though obviously there's still something bothering him. Parker Bridwell has been starting in his place.

Josh Donaldson (knee) is hoping to return Friday against the Royals.

Donaldson was a late scratch Thursday against Texas after hitting his knee on the concrete while stretching in pregame warmups. Russell Martin ended up starting at third base with Kendrys Morales DHing. Donaldson has cooled off a bit but is still slashing .286/.389/.554 with eight homers in 112 at-bats this season.

Paul Goldschmidt clobbered his 18th homer while providing four RBI Thursday in the Diamondbacks’ win over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt was ruthless on Thursday, first giving Arizona the lead with an RBI single in the third inning before launching a three-run jack off Antonio Senzatela in the following frame. Goldschmidt has now overtaken teammate Jake Lamb for the major league lead with 64 RBI and ranks second behind Aaron Judge in OPS. He’s hit .427 over 68 at-bats this month.
