Andrew McCutchen (Achilles) is back in the Pirates' lineup Friday.
McCutchen sat out Friday with some minor tightness in his Achilles. It's something to keep an eye on going forward, but he's expected to be alright.
Mariners activated LHP Joe Beimel from the 15-day disabled list.
Beimel has missed the last couple weeks with a shoulder injury. He returns to a 4.78 ERA over 42 appearances this season.
Brandon Crawford (calf) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.
Crawford hasn't played since being hit in the left calf by a pitch Monday. This is just his second start in 10 days due to oblique and calf ailments.
Pablo Sandoval was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday due to mid-back tightness.
Sandoval had to cut his batting practice short when his back stiffened up on him. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Travis Shaw has replaced him at third base.
The Royals are hoping to get Alex Rios and Kevin Herrera back late next week.
Both players are away from the club while battling chicken pox, but they've experienced improvement with their symptoms of late. The Royals certainly won't take any chances in bringing them back too soon.
