Giants left fielder Nori Aoki back in the starting lineup Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) Giants left fielder Nori Aoki returns to the starting lineup Saturday against the Giants and will bat lead off, reports CSN Bay Area.

Aoki, who received his first off day of the season Friday, is hitting .311 with three RBI in 74 at-bats this season. Also in the lineup Saturday is catcher Andrew Susac, with Buster Posey shifting to first base and moving Brandon Belt to the bench. Susac, making just his third start of the year, is hitting 3 for 8 with two strikeouts to start the year.


M's Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) to have second MRI, update on hold
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5:40 pm ET) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) required another MRI and an update on his status is on hold, reports the Tacoma News Tribune.

Iwakuma was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to a right lat strain.

In three starts this season, Iwakuma is 0-1 with a 6.61 ERA.

Orioles 1B Steve Pearce: 'I've been like a one-man rally killer'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:39 pm ET) Orioles first baseman Steve Pearce is not complaining about his recent time on the bench. In fact, he understands why Buck Showalter has been opting to play others over him.

Pearce owns a .167 batting average with two homers, four RBI and .292 slugging percentage. That translates into a lot of blown opportunities on a team that has been battering pitchers much of the year.

"I've been like a one-man rally killer this past week," he told masnsports.com. "It's been frustrating and I think Buck (Showalter) sees I'm frustrated. I'm not swinging like I'm capable. But it comes around, it always does. Just want to get back to how I know I can play."

How he knows he can play was how he played in a breakout 2014 in which he batted .293 with 21 taters and recorded an OPS of .930.

Pearce has just three at-bats since April 21.


Twins sit Danny Santana, Oswaldo Arcia, Jordan Schafer
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:37 pm ET) The Twins will be without three regulars in the starting lineup on Saturday. 

Shortstop Danny Santana, left fielder Oswaldo Arcia and center fielder Jordan Schafer are all out of the lineup. 

Eduardo Escobar will start his third game of the year at shortstop, batting eighth in the lineup. 

Eduardo Nunez gets his second start of the year in left, batting sixth. Shane Robinson starts for the sixth time in center, batting ninth. 


Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (hamstring) out of the lineup Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:35 pm ET) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is out of the starting lineup Saturday against the Padres after re-aggravating his hamstring Friday, the team announced.

Puig, who has missed four of the last eight games with the left hamstring strain, will be replaced by Andre Ethier, who bats second. Ethier is hitting .300 with one home run and three RBI in 30 at-bats this season. The Dodgers are currently the underdogs Saturday (+100) against San Diego.


Joe Mauer to DH for Twins, Kennys Vargas at first
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) Joe Mauer and Kennys Vargas swapped positions for the Twins on Saturday. Mauer, who has started 14 of the team's 16 games at first base, will play designated hitter. Vargas, who has been the DH for 13 games, will play first. 

It's the second start at first base this season for Vargas and Mauer's third time at DH. 

The Twins are +145 money line underdogs at Seattle. 


Cubs-Reds game officially postponed due to rain
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:28 pm ET) The Cubs and Reds have officially postponed Saturday's game in Chicago due to inclement weather, the team's announced. The game, originally scheduled to be played at 1 p.m., was delayed over four hours before officials decided to move the game to a later date, which is yet to be determined.

Cubs scheduled starter Jake Arrieta will have his start pushed back to Sunday while Anthony DeSclafani's next start has yet to be determined.


Rays call up Everett Teaford, DFA Allan Dykstra
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5:26 pm ET) The Rays called up pitcher Everett Teaford from Triple-A Durham on Saturday. 

Teaford was 1-1 with a 4.20 ERA at Durham this season. He hasn't pitched in the Majors since he was with Kansas City in 2013. 

To make room on the roster for Teaford on the 40-man roster, the Rays designated first baseman Allan Dykstra for assignment. 

Dykstra hit .129 in 31 at bats for the Rays this season. 


Report: RHP Colome likely to rejoin Rays after one more rehab start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) Rays fireballer Alex Colome will likely make one more rehab start at Triple-A Durham before joining the big-league rotation, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Colome has been dealing with pneumonia, which landed him on the disabled list to start the season. With ace Alex Cobb also working his way back, however, Colome must perform well with the Rays to maintain his spot in the rotation.


Angels' Grant Green starting at second base Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:22 pm ET) The Angels will start Grant Green at second base Saturday, giving Johnny Giavotella just his second day off of the season, the team announced.

Green, who was called up by Los Angeles Friday, lost out on the position battle in spring training to Giavotella and is hitting .328 with four doubles and three triples in 61 at-bats so far this season for Triple-A. 

Also in the starting lineup Saturday is Matt Joyce and Drew Butera, giving Collin Cowgill and Chris Iannetta the day off. The Angels are currently the favorites Saturday (-160) against the Rangers.
