Twins' Tim Stauffer struggling with changeup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8:28 pm ET) Twins reliever Tim Stauffer admits that he's not "where I'd like to be at this point in the year," per TwinCities.com.

Through five appearances, Stauffer has a 9.00 ERA.

"I’ve always been a little bit of a slow starter," he said. "Obviously, I don’t want to make any excuses. I’d like to be able to go out there and get in a groove. I really don’t feel like I’ve hit that groove quite yet." 

Stauffer said that his changeup "is still not where I want it to be".


Dodgers P Daniel Corcino clears waivers, sent to Double-A
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(8:16 pm ET) After designating him for assignment on Wednesday, pitcher Daniel Corcino cleared waivers on Friday and was sent outright to the Dodgers' Double-A team in Tulsa, per TrueBlueLA.com.

Corcino was selected off waivers by Dodgers from the Reds on April 17.

Corcino appeared in five games for the Reds, starting three, in 2014, where he went 0-2 with a 4.34 ERA.

Giants' Bochy on keeping Justin Maxwell in lineup: 'He's earned it'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8:09 pm ET) Giants outfielder Justin Maxwell earned his fourth straight start Friday against the Rockies.

He is batting .417 (5 for 12) with one triple, one home run and three RBI in his last four games. He also had the game-winning hit in the 10th inning Thursday against the Dodgers.

"Right now with the way he's playing, he's earned it," manager Bruce Bochy said, per CSN Bay Area. "I like his at-bats, and not just the hit to win the game, but the quality of the at-bats has been very good. I look at the patience he's shown, particularly with two strikes. He's not panicking. He's quiet up there and not expanding the zone. He's keeping his composure up there. He's not chasing."


Giants OF Hunter Pence might begin rehab assignment next week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8:05 pm ET) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence (forearm) was not restricted while taking swings Friday, manager Bruce Bochy told reporters. Bochy added Pence could be ready to start a rehab assignment late next week, per CSN Bay Area.

"He was hitting off a tee, going to right (field), pulling the ball, hitting soft toss," Bochy said. "It was really amazing. He had incredible bat control today. He was going toward (the right-center portion of the cage) and every ball was to the same spot. It was pretty impressive."


Dodgers send P Mike Bolsinger to Triple-A
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:46 pm ET) With the call up of reliever Sergio Santos earlier on Friday, the Dodgers have sent pitcher Mike Bolsinger to Triple-A, reports the Orange County Register.

In his one appearance this season on Thursday, Bolsinger started and allowed one run on five hits in 5 2/3 innings for a no decision.


Astros OF Jake Marisnick held out of lineup Friday due to leg injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7:44 pm ET) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick said he was held out of the starting lineup Friday against the Athletics for precautionary reasons after dealing with right leg discomfort during Wednesday's game at Seattle, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Colby Rasmus started in center field for Marisnick, who is batting .389 (14 for 36) with one triple, one home run, two doubles, five RBI, six runs and four stolen bases in his last 12 games.


Twins' Ricky Nolasco has rehab start pushed back a day
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7:34 pm ET) Injured Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco will start his minor league injury rehab assignment a day later than expected. 

Nolasco was originally supposed to start for Class-A Cedar Rapids on Saturday. Instead, he'll take the mound on Sunday, per the Star Tribune.

There is a 90 percent chance of rain on Saturday, which led to the change in the schedule. 


Rangers agree to trade for embattled Angels OF Josh Hamilton
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7:28 pm ET) The Angels have agreed to trade embattled outfielder Josh Hamilton to the Rangers, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

However, there are a few minor issues left to be ironed out, according to Heyman. It will likely take another day or two to finalize the trade.

MLB.com was first to report this afternoon the Rangers were in talks with the Angels about a deal for Hamilton, who was a five-time All-Star for the Rangers from 2008-12.

The Angels have not been happy since the news broke in February that Hamilton suffered a drug relapse. Major League Baseball made the announcement in early April that Hamilton will not be suspended for the relapse since it did not violate his drug treatment program.

Hamilton has yet to play this season, as he is working his way back from shoulder surgery. Hamilton is rehabbing in Houston and could begin full baseball activities next week, sources told FOX Sports.

Hamilton's tenure with the Angels was not a pleasant one. On top of his drug relapse, he hit just .255 with 31 home runs and 123 RBI in 240 games since he signed a five-year, $125 million contract following the 2012 season.

Hamilton had a great run with the Rangers, posting a .305/.363/.549/.912 slash line in five seasons with the club. He won the 2010 AL MVP award with the Rangers as well.


A's P Sean Doolittle throws off mound on Friday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(7:25 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle threw 15 pitches off of a mound on Friday as he continues to rehab his injured shoulder, according to the San Jose Mercury News. 

Doolittle is expected to throw 20 to 25 pitches from flat ground on Sunday and gradually move to the next step from there. 

"It was the best I've felt," Doolittle said.

Doolittle tore his rotator cuff this past January. 


Cardinals' Randal Grichuk may not be ready by early May
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7:14 pm ET) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk is on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain. He's eligible to come off on May 2, but he'll likely need longer than that. 

Manager Matt Matheny said that progress in Grichuk's rehab has been "slow", per MLB.com
