Phillies P Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) pitches in rehab game
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:28 am ET) For the first time since undergoing right shoulder surgery last June, Phillies pitcher Jonathan Pettibone was able to pitch in a live game Friday, reports Philly.com.

Pettibone pitched a perfect inning during a rehab assignment Friday in the minor leagues. Pettibone threw 11 pitches and topped out at 87 mph with his fastball.

"I'm just continuing the long process of getting back on the mound and getting back healthy," Pettibone said of his first game. "This is the first step and one of the last steps, so I will get back out there and be ready to go next time."

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(12:13 am ET) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin hit his first two homers of the season on Friday, snapping an 0 for 33 slump in the process.

"It's definitely encouraging but it's not really satisfying when you don't end up winning the game," Martin said.

The homers were just Martin's second and third hits of the season, boosting his average from .042 to .111.

Rockies P John Axford (personal) may need longer medical leave
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:12 am ET) With Rockies pitcher John Axford's family medical emergency leave set to expire Sunday, manager Walt Weiss indicated Axford could need the leave extended beyond Sunday, reports MLB.com.

"That's something we have to deal with through the Commissioner's office if we felt it [an extension] is needed," Weiss said. "I'm still not sure on that yet."

Axford is on the family medical emergency leave after his son was bit by a rattle snake during spring training.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) An MRI showed Cubs pitcher Neil Ramirez has inflammation behind his right throwing shoulder, but no structural damage, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"That was a relief to me and to the organization," Cubs President Theo Epstein said. "So he is going to take it slow and get back to full strength, then come back."

Ramirez was placed on the 15-day disabled list in order to rest the shoulder.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto fanned 10 batters during Friday's game against the Cardinals, but it was not enough as the Reds fell 6-1.

Cueto surrendered four runs on six hits over seven innings of work and he only walked one. Cueto received the loss for his work and is now 0-2 on the season.

It was his first outing of the season giving up more than one run, but he has pitched seven innings in each of his three starts this season. His ERA rose from 0.64 to 2.14.

His next start is expected to be Wednesday at Milwaukee.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) Reds manager Bryan Price is excited to have starter Homer Bailey make his first MLB start since Aug. 7 on Saturday in St. Louis, reports MLB.com.

"It's great. It solidifies our rotation. We need him," Price said. "We need him to be a performer for us. We need him to give us an opportunity to be a better team in this division."

Bailey shut down his season last year to undergo surgery to repair a torn tendon near his right elbow.
