Alex Wood evened his record at 7-7 after limiting the Phillies to one run over six innings on Sunday.

The Braves traded games with the Phillies in their return from the All-Star break. Wood's solid outing gave them a series win. The lefty allowed only three hits, didn't issue a walk, and struck out eight. Wood, who has served out of the bullpen as well as the rotation, seems to perform better as a starter. Overall, he has a 3.24 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and a 90/23 K/BB ratio. Wood will face the light-hitting Padres at home on Friday next.

Daniel Murphy is not in the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Ryan Zimmerman is also getting a day off. The Nats are going with Wilmer Difo at second base and Adam Lind at first.

Andrew McCutchen is batting sixth for the Pirates on Friday versus the Mets.

It's the first time in his career that he's hit any lower than cleanup. McCutchen is in an 11-for-70 tailspin at the plate that's dropped his season line to .203/.274/.360. He faces the tall task of trying to snap out of his funk against Jacob deGrom.

Christian Yelich (hip) is back in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Yelich hasn't played since exiting Tuesday's game with right hip flexor tightness, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go in this one. He's in center field and batting third against Jesse Chavez and the Angels.

Brewers activated RHP Junior Guerra from the 10-day disabled list.

Guerra will rejoin the Brewers' rotation on Friday versus the Diamondbacks after missing about seven weeks with a strained calf. The right-hander might be on a bit of a pitch count Friday and doesn't have a great matchup, so he's not the best streaming option.

Brewers placed OF Ryan Braun on the 10-day disabled list with a left calf strain.

Braun returned Sunday from a minimum DL stay with a calf injury but then aggravated the ailment Thursday. How long he'll be sidelined this time around remains to be seen, but it's safe to say the Brewers will opt for a more cautious approach. Hernan Perez figures to be an everyday outfielder while Braun is out.

Joe Stiglich of NBC Sports California reports that Sean Manaea will move up to start Friday versus the Yankees in place of Kendall Graveman.

Stiglich adds that Jharel Cotton is a possibility to be recalled to start Saturday in what had been Manaea's slot. It sounds like Graveman may be dealing with an injury, although it's unclear at this point what it is. He spent time on the disabled list last month with a shoulder issue.

The Blue Jays will activate both Josh Donaldson (calf) and Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) before Friday's game against the Rangers.

Toronto has been playing better in May and will get the left side of their infield back for the beginning of a 10-game homestand, so things are looking up at the moment. Donaldson has been sidelined since April 14 and Tulowitzki has been on the shelf since April 21.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that the Giants optioning Christian Arroyo back to Triple-A Sacramento "seems to be on the table."

Arroyo is 6-for-49 with 12 strikeouts in his past 13 games, dropping his batting line with the Giants to .191/.242/.304 across 115 at-bats. The youngster has popped three homers and played well defensively, but the Giants have to make room for Aaron Hill (forearm) and Conor Gillaspie (back) soon and the move that might make the most sense is sending Arroyo back to the minors for more seasoning. The picture could change if Eduardo Nunez's hamstring injury is worse than expected, but right now the hope is that he'll be ready to play Friday.

Tom Murphy (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as next week.

Murphy's recovery from a hairline fracture in his right forearm and wrist has come along more slowly than expected, but obviously he's made nice progress of late. Considering how long he's been sidelined, Murphy's rehab assignment figures to be a pretty lengthy one. Still, he's a guy worth stashing now if he was dropped in your league.

Jon Gray (foot) hopes to throw a bullpen session this weekend without wearing a walking boot.

He's been throwing bullpen sessions while wearing the boot but is aiming to ditch it this weekend. Gray will require at least three rehab starts before rejoining the Rockies' rotation, so it's going to be a while. Manager Bud Black indicated earlier this week that he expected Gray back in three weeks, so a mid-June return looks like the best-case scenario.

Michael Wacha allowed six runs on seven hits over four-plus innings in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Wacha was working with a 3-0 advantage before he even threw his first pitch, but he was unable to hold the early lead afforded to him by the offense. Chase Utley burned him for a solo home run in the second inning, with three more runs scoring in the fourth inning. Two of those came home off the bat of opposing number Kenta Maeda, who laced a single down the third base line on a hanging curve. The final two runs on his line scored via the bullpen after he allowed runners on before being pulled with nobody out in the fifth. Wacha will carry a still-sturdy 3.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a home start against (once again) the Dodger when he next takes to the mound.
