Player Notes

  • Will Smith (neck) may require trip to injured list
    Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts acknowledged Friday that catcher Will Smith may require a stint on the injured list.

    Advice: Smith has been sidelined due to a sore neck, and though he noted mild improvement on Friday, it isn't progressing the way that the Dodgers had hoped. Austin Barnes will continue to handle the duty behind the plate, with Matt Beaty functioning as the club's emergency catcher on Friday. 12 minutes ago
  • Alex Wood slated for simulated game on Tuesday
    Alex Wood (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: If all goes well there, he'll proceed to a simulated game on Tuesday. Wood continues to work his way back from shoulder inflammation that has held him down since late July. He's expected to throw three innings in his simulated game on Tuesday. 17 minutes ago
  • Max Muncy not in Dodgers lineup on Friday night
    Max Muncy is absent from the Dodgers' starting lineup for Friday night's contest against the Angels.

    Advice: Nothing to worry about here, Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts indicated that it was a planned night off for Muncy against Angels' southpaw Patrick Sandoval. He'll return to the lineup on Saturday. The 29-year-old slugger is off to a rough start at the plate, slashing .169/.289/.351 with four homers and five RBI in his first 20 games. 49 minutes ago

  • Austin Slater expected to avoid injured list
    Austin Slater (flexor strain) was able to hit soft toss on Friday and could be able to function as the Giants' designated hitter in the next couple of days.

    Advice: Manager Gabe Kapler indicated Friday that Slater wasn't a candidate for the injured list -- at least for now. The 27-year-old is off to a terrific start for the Giants this season, slashing .342/.444/.632 with three homers, four RBI and five stolen bases in only 38 at-bats. 52 minutes ago
  • Starlin Castro suffers broken right wrist Friday
    Nationals placed INF Starlin Castro on the 10-day injured list with a broken right wrist.

    Advice: Starlin Castro suffered a broken right wrist on Friday during the resumption of Sunday's suspended game against the Orioles. Castro suffered the injury while diving for a ball at second base and X-rays quickly revealed the unfortunate fate. The Nationals recalled 20-year-old Luis Garcia in a corresponding move. Carter Kieboom and Asdrubal Cabrera are also likely to see an uptick in playing time in Castro's absence. 57 minutes ago
  • Alex Young to start for Diamondbacks on Saturday
    Alex Young will start for the DIamondbacks on Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: He's taking the place of the injured Madison Bumgarner in the Diamondbacks' rotation. The 26-year-old southpaw has pitched in seven games out of the bullpen this season, registering a 4.66 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 10/2 K/BB ratio over 9 2/3 innings. He has yet to throw more than 33 pitches in any outing this season, so those considering Young as a streaming option may need to temper their expectations. Today, 3:53 pm
  • Mariners place Patrick Wisdom on release waivers
    Mariners released INF Patrick Wisdom.

    Advice: The Mariners designated Wisdom for assignment earlier in the week when claiming Brady Lail off of waivers, but now he's been given his unconditional release. The 28-year-old is a career .224/.306/.408 hitter with four homers and 11 RBI in 86 plate appearances at the big league level. Today, 3:27 pm
  • Mariners option Taylor Guilbeau to alternate site
    Mariners optioned LHP Taylor Guilbeau to their alternate training site.

    Advice: The 27-year-old southpaw has appeared in five games for the Mariners this season, posting a 1.69 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 2/3 K/BB ratio across 5 1/3 innings. The recently-claimed Brady Lail is taking his place in the Mariners' bullpen for the time being. Today, 3:24 pm
  • Mariners option Joe Hudson to alternate site
    Mariners optioned C Joe Hudson to their alternate training site.

    Advice: The 29-year-old backstop struggled in his time with the big league club, slashing .125/.222/.125 with a 5/2 K/BB ratio in 19 plate appearances. He'll continue to function as additional catching depth and may get another chance with the M's before the end of the season. Today, 3:22 pm
  • Mariners recall Joseph Odom from alternate site
    Mariners recalled C Joseph Odom from their alternate training site.

    Advice: The 28-year-old will add depth behind the plate for the Mariners. He has appeared in two games this season, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts and a walk in five plate appearances. Today, 3:19 pm
  • Tyler Chatwood scratched with back tightness
    Tyler Chatwood was scratched from Friday's scheduled start against the Brewers due to mid-back tightness.

    Advice: Alec Mills will move up a day to start in Chatwood's place, with Saturday's starter currently TBD. Whether Chatwood could possibly need an injured list stint or just needs to be pushed back a few days isn't clear at this point. Today, 2:57 pm
  • Holaday drives in two as Orioles hold off Nats
    Bryan Holaday went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs -- one on Sunday and one on Friday -- leading the Orioles to a 6-2 victory over the Nationals in the conclusion of Sunday's suspended game.

    Advice: Holaday contributed a run-scoring single during the fifth inning on Sunday, then tacked on another RBI knock in the sixth inning on Friday -- which would be the only run scored after game resumed in the sixth inning. The veteran backstop is off to a terrific start in his limited time, hitting .429 (3-for-7) with three RBI. Today, 2:36 pm
  • Anthony Santander drives in two as O's top Nats
    Anthony Santander went 1-for-3 and drove in two runs on Friday as the Orioles topped the Nationals in the resumption of Sunday's contest.

    Advice: Santander contributed a two-run single to cap off the Orioles' five-run rally in the fifth inning. He has been an extremely capable run producer in the middle of the Orioles' lineup this season, slashing .263/.291/.539 with four homers and 21 RBI. Today, 2:36 pm
  • Hanser Alberto plates two runs in win over Nats
    Hanser Alberto went 2-for-5 with a double and drove in a pair of runs on Sunday, helping to lead the Orioles past the Nationals in their game that was finished on Thursday.

    Advice: Alberto delivered a two-run double as part of a five-run uprising in the fifth inning off of Stephen Strasburg. He has been sizzling at the plate to begin the 2020 season, slashing a robust .354/.384/.549 to go along with two homers, 11 RBI and a stolen base. Today, 2:36 pm
  • Braun (finger) to return to lineup Sat. or Sun.
    Ryan Braun (finger) is expected to be back in the Brewers' lineup in the field on Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice: Braun served as the team's designated hitter in his first two games back from the injured list but has now been benched for two straight. That was apparently the plan, as they wanted to give him a little more rest for his surgically-repaired right index finger. Today, 2:34 pm
  • Asher Wojciechowski pitches well against Nationals
    Asher Wojciechowski pitched well in Sunday's start against the Nationals, allowing three hits over 3 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.

    Advice: The right-hander walked two and struck out four in the no-decision. Not bad work for someone who was pitching on three-days rest. Wojciechowski threw 65 pitches in the ballgame, 39 of them for strikes. He'll carry a 3.12 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into another matchup against the Nationals on Saturday in Baltimore. Today, 2:30 pm
  • Thairo Estrada recalled by Yankees
    Yankees recalled INF Thairo Estrada from their alternate training site.

    Advice: Estrada has had multiple stints with the big club this season but hasn't played much. That doesn't figure to change this time around. Today, 2:30 pm
  • Aaron Judge lands on injured list with calf strain
    Yankees placed OF Aaron Judge on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to August 12, with a right calf strain.

    Advice: Manager Aaron Boone says the strain is Grade 1 “or even less than that” and that the club expects Judge's stay on the IL to be a short one. It's obviously still a bummer even if it's a minimum IL stint as it looks like it will be, as Judge is off to an MVP-level start to the season. Mike Tauchman is in right field and Clint Frazier is at designated hitter on Friday. Today, 2:15 pm
  • Josh Donaldson still has some soreness in calf
    Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said Friday that Josh Donaldson (calf) "had a good day" in rehabbing Wednesday but is still feeling some soreness.

    Advice: Donaldson has already missed a week and a half with a right calf strain and Falvey didn't want to put a timetable on the third baseman's return. It certainly doesn't seem imminent. Today, 2:12 pm
  • Rich Hill (shoulder) throws 60 pitches Friday
    Rich Hill (shoulder) threw 60 pitches at the Twins' alternate training site Friday.

    Advice: Hill "looked good, felt great, and threw the ball well," president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said. Falvey added that Hill is "lobbying" to rejoin the rotation as soon as possible. He seems likely to be back next week. Today, 2:09 pm
