Red Sox DH David Ortiz will probably start Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:33 am ET) John Farrell has all but assured that Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will be ready to roll Saturday against Texas.

"Everything points to he will be in the lineup," Farrell told MLB.

He made that declaration Friday night after Ortiz had been given two games off to get his swing together. He is on a 1-for-20 slide that has dropped his batting average to .216.


Orioles SP Bud Norris could pitch Wednesday in Houston
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:27 am ET) Orioles right-hander Bud Norris will either make his next start at Triple-A Norfolk or with the big-league club in Houston on Wednesday.

That's the word from Buck Showalter, per the Baltimore Sun. No decision was made earlier Friday because the Orioles wanted to see if Norris would be needed in an emergency bullpen appearance. But the eight-inning stint of Miguel Gonzalez made that unnecessary.

Norris is recovering from a severe case of bronchitis that has cost him 10 pounds. He has been out since May 10.


Rockies 1B Justin Morneau now on 15-day DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:18 am ET) The Rockies have placed first baseman Justin Morneau on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical strain and concussion symptoms. He had already been on the 7-day concussion DL.

Morneau has been sidelined since May 13. His future status remains uncertain.


Padres 1B Yonder Alonso elevated to Triple-A in rehab
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:09 am ET) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is inching closer to a return from a shoulder injury that has him on the disabled list.

After two rehab games at Class A Lake Elsinore, he played Friday night at Triple-A El Paso, where he will remain for at least three games. He was 0-for-3, but walked twice and scored twice. Alonso is 1-for-9 in his rehab stint.

"He needs to see pitches and get at-bats," Bud Black told MLB.com.

Alonso will return with a fine slash line of .333/.427/.437.


Ryan Raburn triples in only run of game for Indians
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:54 am ET) Ryan Raburn hit a pinch-hit triple to drive in the only run of the game in the Indians' loss on Friday. 

Raburn came to the plate in the ninth inning and got his first triple, and 14th RBI, of the year off of Seattle closer Fernando Rodney. 


Seth Smith provides all of Mariners' runs with homer
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:52 am ET) Mariners designated hitter Seth Smith hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning to provide all the offense in a 2-1 win over Cleveland on Friday. 

"You are working aggressive and hoping to get something over the plate,” Smith said. “You don’t know what it’s going to be, but you just hope you are in a good place for a good swing."

Smith went 1 for 3 with a walk. His homer gave him five on the year, to go with 13 RBI. 


Angels RP Joe Smith had stiff neck on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:51 am ET) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said reliever Joe Smith was unavailable for Friday's game against the Tigers due to a stiff neck, according to the Orange County Register.

Smith hasn't pitched since Tuesday, and his status for Saturday's contest is uncertain at this time. The veteran right-hander has a 3.80 ERA over 21 1/3 innings this season.


Shaky Fernando Rodney earns 14th save for Mariners
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:50 am ET) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney couldn't preserve the shutout, but he earned his 14th save in Friday's win over Cleveland. 

Rodney allowed a run on one hit and a walk in the ninth inning. He struck out one and was able to save Seattle's 2-1 win. 


Trevor Bauer drops to 4-2 with loss for Indians
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:48 am ET) Indians starter Trevor Bauer suffered a loss, Friday, against Seattle. 

Bauer dropped to 4-2 on the year, giving up two runs on six hits over seven innings. He walked three and struck out 10. 

Bauer's next start is Thursday, at Kansas City. 


Taijuan Walker moves to 2-5 with win for Mariners
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:46 am ET) Mariners starter Taijuan Walker improved to 2-5 with a win, Friday, over Cleveland. 

Walker pitched eight shutout innings, allowing two hits. He didn't walk a batter and struck out eight. 

"I think he’s taken a step forward in his last two outings,” manager Lloyd McClendon said. “He worked fast, he threw strikes and worked ahead in the count. He did everything we asked of him

His next start will be Wednesday, against the Yankees.
