Braves placed RHP David Carpenter on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right biceps.

Carpenter suffered the injury during Monday's game and the Braves couldn't afford to go short-handed in their bullpen, so they had to make a move. No word on how much time he'll need to miss. Pedro Beato has been called up from Triple-A to take his spot on the active roster.

John Lackey recorded 11 strikeouts while holding the Nationals to two runs over seven innings in Friday's 8-6 victory.

The Nats got single tallies in the first (on an Anthony Rendon homer) and second (on a Max Scherzer single) innings, but Lackey cruised after that. It was a great outing made all the more impressive when you consider that the wind was blowing out at Wrigley Field. Lackey has mixed in a couple clunkers among his six starts, so his ERA is still at 4.02. However, he boasts a 1.09 WHIP and 40/10 K/BB ratio over 40 1/3 innings. The veteran righty will take on the Padres at home next week.

Brian Dozier is sitting out Friday due to right hamstring soreness.

Dozier injured himself while exiting the batter's box on Wednesday. He said he could have played Friday, but the decision was made to give him an extra day of rest. Dozier expects to be back in there Saturday. Eduardo Nunez is at second base Friday.

Ben Zobrist smacked a solo homer and a three-run blast in Friday's victory over the Nationals.

He took Max Scherzer out to right field in the third and again in the fifth. Zobrist also drew a pair of walks, reaching base in all four trips to the plate. The 34-year-old has gone deep four times in his last three games and is now sporting a nifty .277/.398/.489 batting line.
May 6 - 5:23 PM

Brett Gardner (elbow) is back in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Gardner didn't start Thursday after being hit on the right elbow by a pitch Wednesday, but he's fine. The Yankees also have Ronald Torreyes at third base over Chase Headley.
May 6 - 4:54 PM

Mike Moustakas (thumb) was scratched from Friday's lineup.

Moustakas returned to action from a bruised thumb on Wednesday, but the thumb is apparently still bothering him. Consider him day-to-day. Christian Colon had been expected to start at second base, but he's now shifted over to third and Omar Infante has entered the lineup at second.
May 6 - 4:19 PM

Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) could potentially return from the disabled list when first eligible on May 19.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that an MRI revealed a "one-plus" grade right hamstring strain for A-Rod, so it was good news all things considered. The club figures to have a better idea by next week whether Rodriguez returning in mid-May is realistic.
May 6 - 4:01 PM

Pirates activated INF Jung Ho Kang from the 15-day disabled list.

Kang has completed his rehab from a nasty leg injury from last September that resulted in a torn meniscus and fractured tibia. He's starting at third base and batting sixth against the Cardinals on Friday, although he's only expected to start two out of every three games initially. David Freese will see a drop in playing time with Kang back.
May 6 - 3:49 PM

Devin Mesoraco will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

It was a labrum tear in his hip that ended his 2015 campaign and now Mesoraco is facing another lost season. The recovery time is a minimum of four months, so the catcher is effectively done for 2016. He's hit only .158/.245/.200 across just 106 plate appearances since the beginning of 2015. Tucker Barnhart and Ramon Cabrera will handle the catching duties with Mesoraco on the shelf.
May 6 - 3:30 PM

Justin Bour (finger) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Bour is still recovering from a dislocated left pinkie finger, although he hopes to play this weekend. Chris Johnson is handling first base in his place.
May 6 - 2:46 PM

Yankees placed LHP CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 5, with a left groin strain.

Sabathia is coming off his best start of the season, having tossed seven scoreless frames against the Orioles, but he apparently injured himself in the outing. He's expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks. Ivan Nova will replace Sabathia in the Yankees' rotation.
May 6 - 2:40 PM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.

He's been out of the lineup for four out of the last five games due to soreness in his right lat. Santana pinch-hit in Thursday's game, so he's presumably available off the bench Friday. Alex Presley is filling in again in right field.
