Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that management will sit down with David Price to determine his role for the remainder of the season.

Farrell also said that it would be "aggressive" to bring Price back as a starter. It's just a hypothesis, but it sounds like Price will be joining the Red Sox bullpen for the remainder of the year. Considering the long-term investment in his left arm, it makes sense. Price threw a three-inning, 47-pitch simulated game on Wednesday afternoon and could be ready for activation by early next week.

Updating an earlier report, Lorenzo Cain left Thursday's game against the Cardinals with a right hamstring cramp.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons acknowledged that Jaime Garcia could be moved to the bullpen.

The left-hander has been dreadful this year (6.16 ERA in 13 starts) and could lose his spot in the starting rotation with Marcus Stroman (shoulder) slated to return this weekend. Sam Gaviglio would likely be called on Sunday against the Angels if Garcia is indeed demoted to a long relief role.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) will make a minor league rehab start for Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

He's finally ready for game action after sitting out the past two months with a sprained elbow. Cueto will need three rehab outings to build up his pitch count after missing so much time (he's slated to throw 40 pitches on Saturday). The 32-year-old was off to a stellar start before his injury, logging a 0.84 ERA over 32 innings in March and April.

Tyler Skaggs has been scratched from Thursday's start against the Blue Jays due to right hamstring tightness.

Left-hander John Lamb will start in his place. The Angels are labeling Skaggs "day-to-day" and plan to reevaluate him on Friday. The left-hander has pitched well this year, compiling a 2.81 ERA with a 9.68 K/9 over 14 starts for the Halos.

Giants activated SS Brandon Crawford from the paternity leave list.

He'll start at shortstop and hit fifth Thursday against the Padres. Crawford's wife, Jalynne, gave birth to the couple's fourth child earlier this week. The 31-year-old is in the midst of a career year, slashing .315/.370/.492 with eight homers over 248 at-bats. To make room for him, the Giants optioned Kelby Tomlinson to Triple-A.

Mike Trout is dealing with a sprained right index finger.

Don't panic, folks. Trout will DH and bat second Thursday against Toronto. The injury has prevented Trout from throwing, though obviously it hasn't affected him at the plate. The 26-year-old will DH for now but expects to return to his usual post in center field in a matter of days. The two-time MVP has hit an impossible .448 this month and leads the majors in homers (23), runs (60), walks (64), OPS (1.158) and wins above replacement (6.6). Yeah, he's good.

Ronald Acuna (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

Acuna is finally nearing a return from a sprained ACL he suffered late last month. Considered by many to be the top prospect in baseball, the 20-year-old Venezuela native has slashed .265/.326/.453 with five homers in 117 at-bats for Atlanta this year. If all goes well in Gwinnett, he could be activated for Monday's series opener against Cincinnati.
Jun 21 - 5:55 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Chris Davis will return to the starting lineup Friday against the Braves.

He'll be returning from an eight-game absence. Nothing has gone right for Davis, who has hit a cataclysmic .150 with 86 strikeouts in 207 at-bats this season. Hopefully the extended rest gave Davis some time to clear his head. Regardless, he shouldn't be anywhere near a fantasy lineup right now.

Jose Martinez (shoulder) is in the Cardinals' lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

Martinez tweaked his shoulder in Wednesday's loss to Philadelphia but is good to go for Thursday's opener. The 29-year-old has been a stud this month, hitting .385 with five homers and 13 RBI across 52 June at-bats. He'll get the nod at first base and bat third against Brewers lefty Brent Suter.
Jun 21 - 5:26 PM

MLB suspended Marlins RHP Dan Straily five games and fined him an undisclosed amount for intentionally hitting Buster Posey during Tuesday's game against the Giants.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly was assessed a one-game ban. Straily is appealing his suspension. No Giants, including Hunter Strickland, who plunked Lewis Brinson with a pitch on Monday night, were disciplined. Straily's next start is scheduled for Monday against the Diamondbacks.
Jun 21 - 5:16 PM

Ryan Braun (thumb) remains out of the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Cardinals.

It will be his second straight absence. Eric Thames will spell Braun in left field and bat leadoff Thursday against Cards hurler Carlos Martinez. Manager Craig Counsell acknowledged Braun could be available off the bench, though it's likely he'll get another day to rest his injured right thumb.
