Pirates optioned RHP A.J. Schugel to Triple-A Indianapolis.
Schugel had been serving as the long man in the Pirates bullpen, but with Jeff Locke shifting to that role he became expendable. Expect to see him again at some point during the second half of the season.
Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Glasnow will make his second start with the Pirates on Saturday at home against the Phillies. If he pitches well, he could make a case for remaining in the rotation for the remainder of the season.
Buster Posey (foot) is in the Giants starting lineup on Saturday.
Posey was forced to leave Friday's game after fouling a ball off of his back leg. He suffered only a minor contusion though and is back behind the dish and batting third for the Giants against Ivan Nova and the Yankees on Saturday afternoon.
Maikel Franco (wrist) is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Saturday.
Franco was drilled by a Gerrit Cole pitch on his wrist on Friday night and is sitting out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. He's considered day-to-day and should return for Sunday's series finale.
Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Marlins are among the teams that have been discussing Andrew Cashner with the Padres.
The Orioles are also known to be negotiating with the Padres. The Marlins could become a legitimate title contender in the National League with the addition of a second starter behind Jose Fernandez, and Cashner could fit the bill potentially.
