Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is aiming to rejoin the Marlins' rotation on August 14, the first day he's eligible.

An MRI on Alvarez's right shoulder confirmed that he only has inflammation. He missed three month with a shoulder issue last season, but the righty said it's not nearly as bad this time around. "Dr. [ Lee] Kaplan [of University of Miami Health System], he just told me to rest my arm for a few days and in like five or six days I could throw to see how it felt," Alvarez said. "For me I’m sad that I have to be out. At the same time, it’s good because I can avoid whatever bigger issue and just rest so that inflammation goes away quickly."

Mets activated INF Asdrubal Cabrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Notice that we listed Cabrera as an infielder and not just a shortstop, as it sounds like the Mets might be leaning toward moving him over to second base. We'll find out for sure when they release Friday's lineup.

Dustin Pedroia (ribs) has been added to the Red Sox' lineup.

He had been slated to miss a fourth straight start after he was hit in the ribs by a pitch Sunday, but Pedroia apparently talked his way in there. He's at second base and batting second versus Alex Meyer and the Angels.

Kyle Hendricks (hand) could resume playing catch as soon as Saturday or Sunday.

Hendricks has been shut down for the last two weeks with tendinitis in his right hand, but it appears the soreness has abated to a certain degree. Obviously, if he does play catch this weekend it would be the first step in a throwing progression, so he's still a little ways away. A return before the All-Star break looks unlikely.

Padres placed INF Yangervis Solarte on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 21 with a right oblique strain.

It weakens an already feeble Padres offense. Jose Pirela should handle the bulk of the second base duties, with Chase d'Arnaud and Carlos Asuaje also in the mix.

Mariners activated RHP Felix Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list.

Hernandez will rejoin the Mariners' rotation on Friday against the Astros. King Felix pitched well in his last two rehab outings, but he held a 4.73 ERA prior to going on the DL and faces a stiff test in his first start back. Fantasy owners would be wise to keep him benched initially.

Cole Hamels (oblique) is on track to rejoin the Rangers' rotation on Monday in Cleveland.

That's assuming things go as planned during his bullpen session Friday. Hamels allowed just one run while striking out eight over 8 2/3 innings in two rehab starts, going 5 2/3 frames and throwing 81 pitches in his final outing Wednesday. The veteran lefty should be ready for close to a full workload versus the Tribe. Hamels has been out since early May with a strained right oblique.

Yadier Molina was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Friday due to a sore knee.

Molina's knee flared up after it was hit by a foul tip Thursday. He should be back in there in a day or two. Eric Fryer will do the catching Friday.

Tigers released RHP Francisco Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was removed from the closer role in early May and hasn't been any better in a less demanding job, ultimately posting a 7.82 ERA over 28 appearances this season. The 35-year-old was pretty good for the Tigers in 2016 and shouldn't be out of a job long, but it's certainly possible that his days as an effective reliever are over.
Jun 23 - 5:03 PM

Dexter Fowler (quad) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

Fowler was initially out of the lineup, then in the lineup and now out of the lineup again. For what it's worth, he expects to return to action Saturday. Tommy Pham is in center field and Jose Martinez is in left.

Brandon Finnegan (trapezius) could rejoin the Reds' rotation on Monday in St. Louis.

Finnegan has posted a 3.00 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 12 innings across three rehab starts. He's be relatively limited from a pitch count perspective Monday but is probably built up enough at this point to give it a go. Finnegan has been sidelined since mid-April due to a strained left trapezius muscle.

Freddie Freeman (wrist) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment in 7-10 days.

That's after the end of the Braves' road trip. Freeman was cleared to begin taking dry swings on Friday and will continue a hitting progression over the next few days. The slugger said earlier this week that he was hoping to return prior to the All-Star break, and it looks like he'll have a chance to do just that. Freeman has been working out at third base and could be used at the position upon activation as the Braves look for a way to keep Matt Adams' bat in the lineup.
