Player News
Orioles LF David Lough finally getting chance to play
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:03 pm ET) In sports, the misfortune of one often leads to good fortune for another. Such is the case for Orioles left fielder David Lough, who is suddenly receiving some action after the team designated Alejandro De Aza for assignment.

Lough has received his first successive starts since last June. He went 2-for-3 with an RBI and stolen base Thursday night and is in the lineup Friday against Tampa Bay. It remains to be seen if his starting status becomes permanent.

"Whatever I can do to help the team, is what I'm here for," he told MASNSports.com. "Two starts in a row, not what I usually get but will definitely try to take advantage of it."

Like most reserves, Lough understands the difficulty of hitting after coming off the bench cold and hopes that more at-bats will translate to success.

"As hard as anyone can imagine, believe me," he said. "Getting a couple starts and then going on the bench for five or six days can be really tough. It's a tough job, but I've kind of embraced it."

Lough had just eight at-bats since May 16 before landing the starting spot Thursday.


Pirates 3B Josh Harrison gets day off Friday vs. Padres
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:02 pm ET) After starting 15 straight games, Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is receiving a day off Friday against the Padres. Harrison has been on fire with the bat in that stretch, batting .429 (27 for 63) with two home runs and 11 RBI in those 15 games. 

Jung Ho Kang will slide over to the hot corner with Jordy Mercer entering the lineup at shortstop. This is likely just a rest day for Harrison, and he could be back in the lineup on Saturday.


Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal ready to be activated Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:47 pm ET) Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal has finished his rehab assignment and rejoined the team in St. Louis on Friday. Grandal is currently on the 7-day concussion list, but is likely to be activated in time for Saturday's game, according to the Orange County Register. 


Gibbons: Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro likely back early next week
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:44 pm ET) John Gibbons has stated that Blue Jays backup catcher Dioner Navarro could return early next week, per MLB.com.

Navarro has been out for six weeks with a hamstring injury. He is 1-for-4 with two walks in two rehab games for Triple-A Buffalo.


Mets 3B David Wright (back) gets epidural injections on Monday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:43 pm ET) Mets third baseman David Wright received epdiural injections on Monday. Wright, who was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, has been seeing a back specialist in California. 

Wright is expected to remain in Los Angeles next week, according to ESPN.com. The team has not provided any further details on his progress, though he does not appear close to returning to his rehab assignment. 


Mets' Travis d'Arnaud suffers setback on rehab assignment
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:41 pm ET) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud suffered a setback on his rehab assignment, which will delay his return to the lineup. 

He took himself out of a rehab game Thursday for Class A St. Lucie after feeling pain in his wrist. He saw a hand specialist, who diagnosed the injury as a bone bruise in his right hand.

Earlier Friday, manager Terry Collins said d'Arnaud would need 20-25 at-bats on his rehab assignment before coming off the disabled list. He is 0 for 6 with one RBI, one walk and one strikeout through his first two games with Class A St. Lucie.


Nationals planning to use Taylor, Moore, Robinson in left field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) The Nationals plan to rotate Michael Taylor, Tyler Moore and Clint Robinson in left field with outfielder Jayson Werth reportedly out until August due to his wrist injury, manager Matt Williams said Friday.

However, Williams left the door open to changing those plans if Taylor, Moore or Robinson heat up offensively.


Recovering Rays P Matt Moore fine after Thursday outing
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) Veteran starting pitcher Matt Moore survived a scare during a extended spring outing for the Rays when he took a line drive off his chest. The latest good news is that he pitched three innings Thursday without further issue, per the Tampa Tribune.

Moore, who has been out since last April after undergoing Tommy John surgery, is expected to join the Rays in late June or July.


Angels SS Erick Aybar (hamstring) out of Friday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:22 pm ET) A left hamstring issue has Angels shortstop Erick Aybar set to sit Friday night against Detroit. He sustained the injury on Thursday.

Aybar did run his hitting streak to seven games before going down.


Padres CF Will Venable sits against lefty on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:18 pm ET) Padres outfielder Will Venable is out of the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Pirates. Venable had started each of the last eight games for the Padres, going 11 for 32 with a double and three RBI in that stretch.

But, with the Pirates throwing a left-hander on Friday, Venable will take a seat. He is just 2 for 9 against southpaws this season.

Switch-hitter Abraham Almonte will get the start in center field and bat seventh on Friday against starter Francisco Liriano.
