Adam Jones is not in the Orioles' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

It looks to be a routine day off for the 31-year-old outfielder. He's hitting .258/.302/.411 with eight homers and 21 RBI in 45 games this season. Joey Rickard is starting in center field and batting leadoff for the O's on Saturday.
May 27 - 3:39 PM

Orioles optioned LHP Jayson Aquino to Triple-A Norfolk.

The 24-year-old hurler posted a 9.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in eight innings with the big league club. He should get another opportunity with the O's at some point this summer.
May 27 - 3:35 PM

Orioles recalled LHP Donnie Hart from Triple-A Norfolk.

The 26-year-old southpaw has pitched decently in his time with the Orioles this season, compiling a 3.95 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 16/4 K/BB ratio across 13 2/3 innings. He will work in middle relief for the O's.
May 27 - 3:33 PM

Ben Zobrist is absent from the Cubs' starting lineup on Saturday.

Ian Happ is getting another start at second base while Jon Jay is starting in center field with Jason Heyward in right. The 36-year-old Zobrist is hitting .261/.352/.458 with six homers and 18 RBI on the season.
May 27 - 3:17 PM

Josh Reddick is absent from the Astros' starting lineup on Saturday.

It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the veteran outfielder. Jake Marisnick is drawing another start in center field with George Springer sliding over to play right.
May 27 - 3:15 PM

Daniel Murphy is out of the Nationals' lineup on Saturday due to a stomach illness.

That explains his absence from the lineup the last two days and is much more encouraging than hearing he's dealing with an injury. Wilmer Difo continues fill in at second base in his absence.

Wil Myers is not in the Padres' starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals.

An already weak Padres lineup looks even worse without Myers in there. Look for him to be back in there on Sunday.
May 27 - 3:04 PM

Rangers transferred RHP Tyson Ross to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done merely as a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Ross is slated to make a minor league rehab start on Monday and could be activated as soon as next weekend against the Reds.
May 27 - 3:02 PM

Astros activated C Brian McCann from the 7-day disabled list.

McCann passed his concussion test earlier this week and claimed that he didn't need a minor league rehab assignment. He's expected to be in the starting lineup on Saturday.
May 27 - 2:57 PM

Astros activated LHP Dallas Keuchel from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll jump right back into the rotation on Saturday against the Orioles. The left-hander has been outstanding this season, posting a 7-0 record, 1.84 ERA, 0.86 WHIP with a 54/14 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings.
May 27 - 2:56 PM

Cardinals designated RHP Miguel Socolovich for assignment.

The right-hander has struggled mightily out of the Cardinals' bullpen this season, registering an 8.68 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings. Given how well he pitched the previous two seasons, he could attract interest on waivers.
May 27 - 2:30 PM

Cardinals purchased the contract of RHP John Brebbia from Triple-A Memphis.

It's the first trip to the big leagues for the 27-year-old hurler. He posted a 1.69 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio through 26 2/3 innings at Triple-A. Look for him to function in middle relief for the Cardinals.
May 27 - 2:28 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Saturday that James Paxton (forearm) will return from the disabled list to start against the Rockies on Wednesday.

That had been the target date all along and Paxton was able to avoid any setbacks in his recovery. The left-hander has been sidelined for nearly a month due to a strained forearm. Before landing on the shelf, he registered a 1.43 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 45/11 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 innings across six starts.
May 27 - 2:11 PM

Felix Hernandez (shoulder) threw a successful 25-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

The veteran right-hander came away from the session feeling good. He's scheduled to throw another one in a couple of days and if all goes well there could be cleared to throw to live hitters.
May 27 - 2:09 PM

Rangers claimed INF/OF Peter O'Brien off waivers from the Reds.

O'Brien spent just nine days in the Reds' organization before he was designated for assignment. He has plenty of power in his bat, but no true position defensively and far too much swing and miss in his profile.
