Desmond Jennings is back in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Jennings missed back-to-back starts with a sore shoulder but is ready to give it a go. The speedy outfielder is sporting a .241/.323/.384 batting line with 10 homers, 35 RBI and 14 steals this season.

Masahiro Tanaka delivered seven innings of one-run ball as the Yankees finished off a three-game sweep of the Mariners on Wednesday afternoon in Seattle.

It was Tanaka's first outing since April 23 and he looked fantastic, yielding only three hits and walking none while striking out nine. He probably could have gone the distance, but it's easy to understand why manager Joe Girardi gave Tanaka the early hook at 78 pitches. Tanaka will try to keep it all working -- and keep his health intact -- next week at home against the Nationals.

Shin-Soo Choo has been playing with a sprained left pinkie finger.

Choo told reporters he injured the pinkie in the team's first day in Cleveland over a week ago, and Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram said the outfielder chose to play through the injury rather than have a pin inserted. He would miss a month if he had the procedure. If the injury happened recently he hasn't shown it, as he hit .295/.356/.533 in May and went 3-for-5 with a homer on Tuesday.

Michael Cuddyer is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday with stiffness in his neck.

Darrell Ceciliani will start in left field and and bat sixth Wednesday night against the Padres. Cuddyer is day-to-day for now. It doesn't sound like a major issue.

Reds placed OF Marlon Byrd on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture in his right wrist.

Byrd suffered the injury Tuesday when he was struck by a pitch. He's had previous fractures in the same area and the Reds are still trying to figure out how much time he will miss. Brennan Boesch and Skip Schumaker will likely share playing time in left field.

Red Sox acquired OF Alejandro De Aza and cash considerations from the Orioles for RHP Joe Gunkel.

De Aza was designated for assignment by the O's last week after opening the season with a rough .214/.277/.359 batting line in 30 games. He seems doubtful to get much playing time in the crowded Boston outfield. Baltimore was paying him $5 million this season, which helps explain the "cash considerations" part of this swap.

Jordan Lyles needs season-ending surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe.

The procedure -- basically a Tommy John surgery for the toe -- is scheduled for June 10 in Denver. Lyles, 24, finishes the 2015 season with a 2-5 record, 5.14 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 30/19 K/BB ratio in 49 innings. Chris Rusin looks like the primary candidate to replace him in the Rockies' starting rotation.

J.J. Hardy (side) is out of the Orioles' lineup for a third straight game on Wednesday night.

An MRI taken Tuesday on Hardy's sore left side ruled out an oblique strain, but the O's are going to give him at least one more day of rest. Ryan Flaherty is starting at shortstop Wednesday night against the Astros.
Jun 3 - 5:02 PM

Brian McCann made an early exit from Wednesday's game against the Mariners with right foot soreness.

McCann is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday back in New York City, so this could be something serious. John Ryan Murphy entered Wednesday's game at catcher. Look for an update on McCann on Thursday afternoon. He's had problems with the foot at different points this season.
Jun 3 - 4:58 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Abreu missed several games with lingering irritation in his right index finger. It's something that might continue to bother him off and on for the rest of the summer, but the 28-year-old slugger should still remain a fantasy monster. Abreu is batting third and serving as Chicago's designated hitter in his return to action Wednesday night at Globe Life Park.
Jun 3 - 4:54 PM

Stephen Strasburg (trapezius) was able to play catch on flat ground Wednesday without issue.

Strasburg has been diagnosed with a trapezius strain on the left (non-throwing) side of his body. It's kind of a tricky injury, but it should heal with time and it's obviously a good sign that he already feels well enough to throw. Strasburg should return from the disabled list sometime later this month.
Jun 3 - 4:46 PM

Twins activated OF Oswaldo Arcia from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Rochester.

Arcia had zero hits in 14 plate appearances on his minor league rehab assignment, so the Twins will ask him to work on his stroke a bit more on the farm. He should be up soon enough. Minnesota doesn't have enough productive bats to warrant keeping Arcia at Triple-A for long.
