Justin Ruggiano was forced to leave Friday's game due to left shoulder discomfort.
It's unclear at the moment just how severe the injury is or how much time the outfielder will stand to miss. Add him to the lengthy list of walking wounded that the Mets have been forced to deal with this season.
Tucker Barnhart was a late scratch from the Reds starting lineup on Friday.
No reason has been given for the late swap, but it'll be Ramon Cabrera starting behind the dish for the Reds on Friday night against Braden Shipley and the Diamondbacks.
Adam Jones was pulled from Friday's game against the Yankees after appearing to re-injure his hamstring.
Jones left Thursday's game with cramping in his hamstring, but tested it out pregame and was deemed good to go on Friday. He appeared to re-injure it though while running to first base on in his first at-bat. Expect the O's to provide an update on his status shortly.
Clayton Kershaw (back) made it through Friday's bullpen session without any issues and will progress to facing live hitters next week.
It's another positive step toward a return to the Dodgers rotation this season for the star southpaw. If all goes well with his next session, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab start. Barring any setbacks, a return in early September doesn't look so outrageous any longer.
Hunter Pence (hamstring) indicated feeling much better on Friday and hopes to return to the Giants lineup on Saturday.
Even if he sits out Saturday's game as a precautionary measure, he should have no problem returning on Sunday. Pence is hitting .273/.341/.422 with eight homers and 41 RBI in 74 games in what has been an injury-plagued season for the Giants' right fielder.
