Pujols sat out Thursday's game after taking a pitch to the hand on Wednesday. He is hitting .179 (7 for 39) with two homers and three RBI over the last 10 games played. He owns a .231/.288/.413 with seven homers and 15 RBI in 156 plate appearances.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:36 pm ET) Braves starting pitcher Alex Wood was scratched from his scheduled start Friday against the Brewers due to a stomach virus. Eric Stults will start in his absence.

Rajai Davis serving as DH for Tigers for first time Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:30 pm ET) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis will not be roaming the vast expanses of the Comerica Park outfield Friday night against Houston. He will serve as a designated hitter for the first time since Sept. 12, 2013, when he wore a Toronto uniform.

Davis has been hot lately with six hits in his last 19 at-bats. He has started four of the last five games, earning playing time in the absence of usual DH Victor Martinez, who is out with a knee injury.


Yankees OF Slade Heathcott makes first career start Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:29 pm ET) Yankees rookie outfielder Slade Heathcott earned his first career start Friday against the Rangers. He made his MLB debut as a defensive replacement in Wednesday's game at Washington.

Heathcott is a former top-100 prospect. He was batting .285 with one home run and 17 RBI in 37 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to his promotion. He had a .270/.345/.398/.743 slash line over seven seasons in the minors.


Rangers release RP Kyuji Fujikawa
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:25 pm ET) Five days after designating reliever Kyuji Fujikawa for assignment, the Rangers have announced that they have given him his unconditional release.

Fujikawa did not distinguish himself in the two games in which he appeared this season, allowing three runs in 1 2/3 innings. His career ERA is 5.74.


Paulo Orlando starts eighth straight for Royals
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:15 pm ET) Paulo Orlando is in the Royals starting lineup in right field for the eighth straight game. 

With Alex Rios on the disabled list, Orlando appears to have beaten out Jarrod Dyson for the starting job. Orlando has started 22 of the 33 games since Rios went down. 


Mariners include Mike Zunino, Welington Castillo in Friday's lineup
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:10 pm ET) The Mariners are starting both of their catchers Friday night against Toronto. Manager Lloyd McClendon gave Mike Zunino the nod behind the plate. He will hit ninth in the order.

Newly-acquired catcher Welington Castillo will make his second start of the season -- this time as a designated hitter. He remains in the sixth-hole.

Seattle is favored (-149) against Marco Estrada and the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre, per VegasInsider.com.


Nationals' Clint Robinson makes the start in left field Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(3:06 pm ET) Nationals left fielder Clint Robinson is making his first start since April 23. Robinson is in the starting lineup Friday against the Phillies, batting seventh.

With regular left fielder Jayson Werth on the disabled list, Michael Taylor and Tyler Moore have been splitting most of the time in the outfield. But they will be on the bench as Robinson will draw the start Friday. He's had just nine at-bats this month, with his only hit going for an RBI double which came in his last appearance as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday.


Nationals activate Casey Janssen, place Sammy Solis on DL
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:04 pm ET) The Nationals activated pitcher Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list, per Nationals.com

Janssen has been out all season with shoulder inflammation. He made six minor league rehab appearances in Class A and Double-A. 

The team also placed LHP Sammy Solis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 18. Solis is suffering from shoulder inflammation. He is 1-0 with a 5.00 ERA this season. 


Athletics SS Marcus Semien gets a breather Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:03 pm ET) Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien was given the night off on Friday against Tampa Bay, after an 0-for-4 performance that put an end to an eight-game hitting streak the previous day. With Semien out of the lineup, manager Bob Melvin gave newcomer Andy Parrino the start at shortstop.

Semien is hitting .338 (26 for 77) with three doubles, two triples, three homers and three RBI over his last 19 games played.

Seattle is an underdog (+126) at Tropicana Field, per VegasInsider.com.
