Brock Holt is considered day-to-day with a left knee contusion.

Great news for the Red Sox. Holt was forced to leave Friday's game after being spiked in the knee on a slide into second base from Jeimer Candelario. The Red Sox are fortunate he managed to avoid anything serious.

Kevin Kiermaier left Friday's game against the Marlins with right foot discomfort.

Kiermaier went 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored before exiting. He's set to be reevaluated on Saturday, so he should be considered day-to-day for now.

Brock Holt exited Friday's game against the Tigers with an apparent knee injury.

Holt was spiked in the left knee while on defense during a play at second base in the fourth inning. He was left vulnerable on the play due to a bad throw from starting pitcher David Price. Holt was able to walk off the field, which is at least an encouraging sign. The Red Sox should provide an update on his status later in the evening.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are among the teams interested in Mets closer Jeurys Familia.

Business is picking up with Familia, as Andy Martino of SNY TV reported earlier Friday that the Mets have gotten to the point of exchanging names with teams. It's believed that 7-8 teams could be involved in trade talks. The A's already have an excellent closer with Blake Treinen, so if acquired, Familia would likely be asked to pitch in a set-up capacity alongside Lou Trivino. That would be a potent late-inning trio.

Ozzie Albies exited Friday's game agianst the Nationals with an apparent injury.

No word yet on the exact nature of the injury, but Gabe Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes that he could have tweaked something in his leg while scoring a run in the first inning. The Braves should pass along an update soon. Charlie Culberson replaced him in the lineup for Atlanta.

Justin Turner (hip) is not in Friday's lineup against the Brewers.

Turner has now missed five straight games due to an adductor injury. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that the hope is he'll be ready to go on Saturday, but it's possible he could miss another day or two. Max Muncy is making the start at the hot corner on Friday, with Logan Forsythe at second base and Chris Taylor in left field.

Miguel Sano has been promoted to Triple-A Rochester.

Sano will test himself against advanced competition after hitting .328/.443/.453 with two homers, two doubles and 12 RBI in 19 games with High-A Fort Myers. The 25-year-old was demoted last month after batting just .203/.270/.405 with seven homers over 37 games to begin the year. The goal in sending him down wasn't just to get him back on track with the bat, but for him to get back in proper shape. Assuming he responds well to the move to Triple-A, he could still play a big role for the Twins and fantasy owners during the second half. This wouldn't be a bad time to stash him away.

Josh Harrison (hamstring) is out of the Pirates' lineup Friday against the Reds.

Harrison exited the final game before the All-Star break due to left hamstring discomfort and isn't ready to go just yet. Sean Rodriguez, fresh off the disabled list, will make the start at second base.

Jon Lester was knocked around for eight runs over three-plus innings in Friday’s blowout loss to the Cardinals.

Lester was pulled after loading the bases to begin the fourth inning. It was his shortest outing of the season. With the Cubs scheduled to play a doubleheader on Saturday, the club ended up using three position players to pitch before the day was over. Lester walked five batters in the loss while giving up seven hits, including a pair of homers. His has been creeping up this month and now sits at 3.14 for the year. Given his peripherals, he was never a strong bet to keep his ERA below 3.00 anyway. He’ll attempt to rebound against the Diamondbacks next time out.

Matt Carpenter enjoyed a historic day in Friday’s blowout 18-5 win over the Cubs, delivering five extra-base hits in five at-bats, including three home runs and seven RBI.

Carpenter also doubled twice and scored four runs. Have mercy. Keep in mind that Carpenter could have done even more damage if he stayed in past the sixth inning, but the Cardinals were up by 14 runs at the time, so they decided to give him the rest of the day off. It's fair to say he deserved it. Carpenter’s five extra-base hits tied an MLB record, but he’s the only player ever to do it within the first six innings of a game. He’s now homered four straight games and owns a healthy .274/.381/.576 batting line with 23 homers and 51 RBI on the year.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Friday that Cody Allen will still see the bulk of the save chances moving forward.

The Indians acquired Brad Hand and Adam Cimber from the Padres on Thursday, giving the club a much-needed boost for their bullpen. While Allen will remain the primary closer for Cleveland, Francona hasn't ruled out using Hand in certain situations.
