Mat Latos struggles before leaving with injury
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:05 pm ET) Reds pitcher Mat Latos struggled against the Pirates before leaving with an injury Friday.

Latos allowed four runs, three earned, on three hits over five innings. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. The fourth inning was problematic for Latos. After inducing a strikeout against the first batter of the inning, he allowed a solo home run. Neil Walker then reached on an error and Russell Martin walked, putting two men on. Pedro Alvarez then hit a three-run shot to right field to make it 4-0 Pirates. 

Latos was also checked multiple times by the team trainer during the game, but managed to stay in the game. After he was pulled, the team announced he left the game with back spasms. It’s unclear if the injury will keep him out for his next start. 


Shane Victorino to be re-evaluated at the end of weekend
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:04 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is expected to be re-evaluated at the end of the weekend, MLB.com reports. Victorino began a minor-league rehab assignment Thursday with Class A Lowell. He went 0 for 2 with two strikeouts.

"Sunday we'll determine [the next step] based on how he responds physically to the work," manager John Farrell said.

Jim Adduci scheduled to start rehab stint Saturday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:03 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Jim Adduci is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday with Double-A Frisco, MLB.com reports.  Adduci, who is working back from a broken pinkie on his left hand, will play five games before he is re-evaluated again.

Brandon Hicks designated for assignment Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:54 pm ET) Giants infielder Brandon Hicks has been designated for assignment Friday.

Hicks was DFA'd in order to make room for Marco Scutaro, who was activated from the disabled list Friday. Hicks is hitting .162/.280/.319 over 204 at-bats. 


Jake Smolinski departs with elbow contusion
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:52 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Jake Smolinski was removed from Friday's game at home against the Angels because of a left elbow contusion, the team announced.

Smolinski underwent X-rays, which came back negative. He is hitting .571 with four RBI in 14 at-bats. His status remains up in the air for Saturday against the Angels.

Marco Scutaro activated Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:51 pm ET) Giants infielder Marco Scutaro has been activated from the disabled list Friday.

Scutaro won't start, but is available to pinch hit late in the game. He's expected to start Saturday. Scutaro has been held out all season due to back and finger issues. 


Tommy Medica to miss multiple games, but may avoid DL
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:40 pm ET) Padres infielder Tommy Medica is not available Friday against the Dodgers, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Medica will likely also be held out the rest of the weekend. With the All-Star break approaching, there's a chance Medica will avoid being placed on the disabled list. He's dealing with a right groin injury. 


Nolan Reimold exits game with apparent leg injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:39 pm ET) Blue Jays outfielder Nolan Reimold was removed from Friday's game against the Rays because of an apparent leg injury.

Reimold suffered the injury while going from second to third on a Juan Francisco grounder in the fourth inning. He was replaced by Darin Mastroianni. Reimold is hitting .333 with three RBI in just 12 at-bats. His status now remains up in the air for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.

Ian Kinsler added to All-Star game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:26 pm ET) Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler has been named a replacement for the injured Victor Martinez on the American League All-Star roster, FOX Sports reports. Kinsler is batting .307 with 11 homers and 50 RBI in 368 at-bats.

Jordan Zimmermann departs early with injury
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8:21 pm ET) Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann left Friday's game against the Phillies due to an injury.

Zimmerman threw a pitch in the fourth inning, and signaled for the team trainer to come out to the mound. After a conference with the trainer and pitching coach Steve McCatty, Zimmermann left the game. It's unclear what part of his body Zimmermann injured. He was replaced by Craig Stammen.

Zimmermann wound up giving up four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings. He did not issue any walks and struck out five hitters.
