Desmond Jennings is not in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Jennings is hitless in his last 16 at-bats, so he'll get a breather to regroup. Brandon Guyer is in left field.
Apr 29 - 3:37 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (leg) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

It's his first start in a week due to a bruised thigh, although he had a big pinch-hit homer on Wednesday. Cespedes is batting .300/.373/.683 with six homers and 17 RBI this month.
Apr 29 - 3:16 PM

Pedro Alvarez is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

He's getting a day off with the White Sox throwing southpaw Carlos Rodon. Mark Trumbo is in the designated hitter spot, and Joey Rickard and Nolan Reimold are in the corner outfield spots.
Apr 29 - 3:14 PM

Diamondbacks designated RHP Matt Buschmann for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly claimed Edwin Escobar. Buschmann allowed one run over 4 1/3 innings during his time with the big club earlier this month.
Apr 29 - 3:12 PM

Christian Vazquez is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

It's just a routine day off. Ryan Hanigan is behind the plate in Vazquez's place.
Apr 29 - 3:07 PM

Devin Mesoraco is absent from the Reds' lineup Friday.

It's been a rough start to the season for Mesoraco, who is hitting only .140/.218/.160 with no homers and one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate.
Apr 29 - 3:06 PM

Diamondbacks claimed LHP Edwin Escobar off waivers from the Red Sox.

He had been designated for assignment last week. Escobar is unscored upon at the Triple-A level this season and should get a shot with the big club before long.
Apr 29 - 3:05 PM

Dodgers signed OF Antoan Richardson to a minor league contract.

Richardson was released by the Pirates earlier this month after going 1-for-16 at the plate for Triple-A Indianapolis. The 32-year-old will provide organizational depth.
Apr 29 - 3:03 PM

Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.

He'll take Huston Street's (oblique) roster spot. Bedrosian holds a 5.76 ERA and 56/33 K/BB ratio over 54 2/3 innings at the big league level since 2014.
Apr 29 - 2:56 PM

Indians activated RHP Tommy Hunter from the 15-day disabled list.

Hunter got a late start to the season following core muscle surgery, but he's ready to go now. He could fill an important role in the middle innings for the Tribe.
Apr 29 - 2:52 PM

Indians designated LHP Ross Detwiler for assignment.

Detwiler holds a 5.79 ERA this season and a 7.14 mark since the beginning of 2015. He'll surely have to settle for a minor league deal somewhere.
Apr 29 - 2:51 PM

Tigers recalled RHP Michael Fulmer from Triple-A Toledo.

Fulmer will make his major league debut on Friday against the Twins. He's posted a 4.11 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio across 15 1/3 innings for Toledo this season and the top prospect isn't a bad streaming option. Fulmer is replacing Shane Greene (blister) and isn't a given to stick around long.
Apr 29 - 2:42 PM

Tigers placed RHP Shane Greene on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a middle finger blister.

The blister didn't heal fast enough for Greene to make his scheduled start this weekend, so the Tigers are playing it safe. He should be back soon. Michael Fulmer is taking Greene's rotation spot.
Apr 29 - 2:40 PM

Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Goforth posted a 4.35 ERA over his first eight relief appearances with Colorado Springs. He'll work in the middle innings.
Apr 29 - 2:37 PM

Brewers optioned RHP Taylor Jungmann to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Jungmann pitched pretty well in 21 starts for the Brewers last season and started their third game of the season this year. However, he's put up a 9.15 ERA and 13/13 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings through five outings this season, so it's not a surprise a change was made. The Brewers haven't announced who will take Jungmann's rotation spot.
