Bronson Arroyo (back) is hoping to return to Cactus League action on Friday.

Arroyo admitted to not feeling that great while playing catch Saturday but reported improvement Sunday. He was given an epidural for the bulging disc in his back last week and thinks he still has time to get ready for Opening Day. Arroyo inked a two-year deal with the D'Backs in February.

Cuban pitcher Yadier Alvarez won't be eligible to reach an official agreement with a team until the upcoming July 2 international signing period.

Alvarez had petitioned Major League Baseball to allow him to sign early, but that request apparently got rejected. The hard-throwing 19-year-old right-hander will be one of the most sought-after prospects on the international market when July 2 hits. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported in late April that the Dodgers have been the most aggressive team on him so far, but the Blue Jays, Nationals, Rangers, and Diamondbacks are also believed to be in the mix.

Wei-Yin Chen could have his next start pushed back.

It's not clear exactly what's ailing Chen, but the Orioles have listed his spot Saturday against the Rays as to-be-determined. There should be an update soon. Chen owns a sharp 3.13 ERA, 1.189 WHIP, and 44/14 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings (nine starts) this season.

Pirates prospect Nick Kingham underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Wednesday.

Kingham hadn't pitched since May 6 and was diagnosed this week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow. The 23-year-old right-hander ranked 67th on Baseball Prospectus' top-100 prospects list over the winter after posting a 3.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 119/52 K/BB ratio in 159 innings last season between Double-A Altoona and Triple-A Indianapolis. He won't pitch again until late 2016. It's obviously a significant blow to the Bucs' rotation depth.

Conor Gillaspie (foot) will start the second half of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Gillaspie was held out of action Monday-Wednesday in Toronto for fear that the Rogers Centre turf would aggravate his lingering plantar fasciitis. Gordon Beckham is at third base for the White Sox in the first game Thursday at Camden Yards, but Gillaspie will man the hot corner in the nightcap.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said David Robertson probably won't pitch in Thursday's doubleheader.

Robertson blew back-to-back saves on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Wednesday's appearance was a two-inning affair. Chicago will play the matchups if a save opportunity arises at some point Thursday at Camden Yards. Robertson still owns a shiny 2.61 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings this season and is not at all in danger of losing his job as the White Sox closer.
May 28 - 11:30 AM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed that Avisail Garcia (knee) won't play in either half of Thursday's doubleheader at Baltimore's Camden Yards.

Garcia hasn't played since leaving Monday's game in Toronto with discomfort in his right knee. It's something that has been bothering him for a couple of weeks, so the White Sox want to give him some extended rest. The 23-year-old is batting .327/.365/.456 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games this season. J.B. Shuck is in right field in the first half Thursday.

Grant Balfour is said to be leaning toward retirement.

Balfour opted out of his minor league contract with the Rays on Wednesday after allowing nine hits and four walks in 9 2/3 innings at Triple-A Durham. The 37-year-old right-hander is still hauling in $7 million this season from a deal signed with Tampa Bay two offseasons ago. If this is indeed it, Balfour, a native of Australia, will finish his major league career with a cool 3.49 ERA, 1.219 WHIP, and 84 saves.

Matt Adams will undergo surgery Friday to repair a torn right quadriceps muscle.

The same 3-4 month timetable holds, though that still could mean the rest of the season for the big first baseman. Adams tore his right quad on Tuesday night while legging out a double. Mark Reynolds has taken over as the Cardinals' starting first baseman and holds a good amount of mixed-league fantasy value as a power threat in a deep lineup. It's another tough blow for the Cards, and yet they have the best record and run differential in Major League Baseball.
May 28 - 8:32 AM

Tuffy Gosewisch will have an MRI taken of his left knee Thursday.

Gosewisch left Wednesday's game with a jammed left knee, and the Diamondbacks want to know the extent of the injury before developing a gameplan. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the club could make a decision about a possible disabled list stint by Friday.
May 27 - 11:49 PM

Max Scherzer pitched seven shutout innings and struck out 13 as the Nationals beat the Cubs 3-0 on Wednesday.

It's Scherzer's fifth career start with at least 13 strikeouts and first with the Nationals. He's won five straight starts since opening the season 1-3, and he has a 1.51 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP overall. He might have enough of a head start on Clayton Kershaw to qualify as the NL Cy Young favorite, though we'd still take Kershaw for the rest of the season.
May 27 - 11:24 PM

Chris Davis hit two homers, including the game-winning blast, to propel the Orioles past the Astros 5-4 on Wednesday.

Davis connected on a two-run homer against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the fourth inning before launching a game-winning solo shot in the eighth. The multi-homer game was Davis' first this season. Davis is hitting just .216/.293/.464 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in the middle of the Orioles' lineup this season.
