Confirmed: Bryce Harper back Thursday for Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:24 pm ET) As expected, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper has returned to the lineup for the Thursday game against St. Louis after missing one game with a quad ailment.

Zach Putnam gets the call Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3:08 pm ET) The White Sox have called up reliever Zach Putnam from Triple-A Thursday.

Putnam will replace Donnie Veal on the 25-man roster, and should provide a fresh arm after the White Sox used all their relievers Wednesday night. Putnam has appeared briefly with three teams, posting a career 8.53 ERA in 12 2/3 innings.


Donnie Veal designated for assignment Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3:06 pm ET) The White Sox have designated pitcher Donnie Veal for assignment Thursday.

The team's bullpen was stretched to the limit Wednesday, and it was assumed the team would make a move in order to get someone fresh for Thursday's game. In 6 innings, Veal posted a 6.00 ERA.


Padres sit Chase Headley on Thursday with bicep injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:05 pm ET) A bicep strain that prevented Padres third baseman Chase Headley from playing Wednesday will also keep him out on Thursday against the Rockies.

Headley has been on a rollercoaster ride to start the season. He began the year on a 3-for-28 slide, banged out five hits in the next 12 at-bats and is since 0 for 10. His season stat line is a disturbing .160/.208/.260.


Rare slump has Carlos Gonzalez sitting against Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:56 pm ET) Rockies slumping left fielder Carlos Gonzalez has been given the night off Thursday in San Diego.

Gonzalez was torrid to start the season before a 2-for-20 stretch in the last five games. He has hit safely, however, in the last two. He is still tied for fourth in the National League with 13 RBI.


Mark Teixeira says he's ready to return
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira says he's ready to return to action, according to the New York Post

Teixeira was able to play three innings during an extended spring game and reported no problems. He's expected to be activated Sunday, and will be "disappointed" if he doesn't play. Teixeira is attempting to come back from a hamstring injury.


Hanley Ramirez: I'll be back in lineup Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:33 pm ET) Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez is not anticipating missing another game with a left hand injury sustained on a hit-by-pitch against San Francisco on Wednesday. Ramirez told MLB.com that he plans on returning to the lineup Friday in the opener of a series against Arizona.

Jason Kipnis ejected after strikeout
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2:31 pm ET) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis was ejected from Thursday's game following a strikeout.

Kipnis had a rough day at the plate, grounding into a double play during his first at-bat and striking out his second time up. Following the strikeout, Kipnis may have said something while walking away from the umpire. The ump then ejected Kipnis from the game. Mike Aviles came into the game to replace Kipnis.


Cardinals make multiple moves with pitching staff
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:15 pm ET) The Cardinals have made several moves in the wake of starting pitcher Joe Kelly being placed on the disabled list. They have promoted pitchers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Memphis and dispatched fellow right-hander Keith Butler to the Redbirds.

Joe Kelly placed on DL with hamstring injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:46 pm ET) A hamstring injury sustained Wednesday while attempting to beat out an infield hit has landed Cardinals right-hander Joe Kelly on the 15-day disabled list. He had been sent back to St. Louis for an MRI, the results of which have yet to be revealed.

Kelly has been brilliant in three starts with one earned run surrendered in 15 1/3 innings, though he owns just a 1-1 record. His 0.59 ERA leads the National League.
