Player News
Rockies shelve RP Ken Roberts, activate RP Brooks Brown
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:16 pm ET) Rockies lefty reliever Ken Roberts has been placed on the disabled list with elbow inflammation, per the Denver Post, which is further reporting that they have activated bullpen mate Brooks Brown, who has recovered from a shoulder injury.

Roberts had performed well until a disastrous appearance Friday night against San Francisco in which he allowed three runs on four hits in two-thirds of an inning.

Brown, who has been absent since May 3, returns with a 4.50 ERA.


Twins' Joe Mauer will not start despite six-game hit streak
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(1:15 pm ET) Twins first baseman Joe Mauer will not start against the White Sox on Saturday despite being in the midst of a six-game hit streak.

Mauer, who is hitting .333/.360/.500 with eight hits and six RBI in his last six games, will still be available for the game.

Trevor Plouffe -- replacing Mauer -- will make just his second start at first base this season.


Mets LF Michael Cuddyer out against Pirates SP A.J. Burnett
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) Mets veteran left fielder Michael Cuddyer is catching a break Saturday against Pittsburgh. He is getting the day off in favor of rookie Darrell Ceciliani.

Cuddyer has not had much success against Pirates scheduled starter. A.J. Burnett. He is 7-for-34 lifetime against the right-hander with just one home run and three RBI.


Nationals Michael Taylor to start in left field against Phillies
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:59 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor will start in left field against the Phillies on Saturday.

Taylor will face off against left-handed pitcher Cole Hamels. Taylor is a career .261/.320/.478 hitter against left-handed pitchers, and has homered against Hamels once in 5 at-bats.


Phillies SS Freddy Galvis benched Saturday at Washington
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:53 pm ET) Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis complained that the cold weather in Colorado made him cold at the plate - but perhaps he's just cold at the plate. He went hitless in four at-bats at much-warmer Washington on Friday night.

The bottom line is that he's out of the lineup Saturday for the fifth time this season. He has just three hits in his last 27 at-bats.


Nationals 2B Dan Uggla gets the start against Phillies
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:53 pm ET) Nationals 2B Dan Uggla has been solid against left-handed pitchers this year, something his team wants him to continue on Saturday against the Phillies' Cole Hamels.

Uggla, who is hitting .273/.385/.545 in 11 at-bats against lefties this season, will get the start over Danny Espinosa.

In 62 career at-bats against Hamels, Uggla is only hitting .145/.239/.323 with three home runs, two doubles and six RBI.


Angels SS Erick Aybar smashes his first homer of 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:45 pm ET) Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has been raking for three weeks, but he did something Friday night he had not done all year.

He homered.

Aybar blasted off with one aboard to put the cherry on top in a nine-run fifth that buried Boston. He had already walked and scored in the inning.

He has hit safely in 16 of his last 18 games and his .325 slugging percentage is at its highest point since the season opener.


Braves SP Miller looks to continue hot streak in start against Brewers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:40 pm ET) Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller has been on fire to start the season.

Miller (5-1) will get the start on Saturday against the Brewers, where he will look to extend his excellent start to the season.

Through eight starts, Miller has a 1.33 ERA.


Mariners' McClendon: Hisashi Iwakuma still not close to return
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:39 pm ET) Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma continues to receive treatment for his strained right lat muscle. However, he has yet to resume throwing, per MLB.com.

“I would imagine when we get back he’ll start throwing again and then start his process all over again,” McClendon said. “He’s going to be out awhile.”


Austin Jackson's struggles in minors delaying return to Mariners
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:37 pm ET) Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson played in his sixth rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma on Friday. He went 1 for 5 with three strikeouts.

Jackson is batting .250 (6 for 24) with four walks and seven strikeouts on his rehab assignment. Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, however, gave no indication Saturday of a specific date for Jackson's return.

“The ankle is feeling good, but the bat isn’t,” McClendon said, per MLB.com. “As of right now, it’s still open.”
