Dodgers 3B Justin Turner still out of action on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:19 pm ET) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner remains out of the starting lineup due to a skin infection on his leg. Turner will miss his third straight game with the issue which put him in the emergency room on Tuesday.

His current condition has not been revealed by the team, and it is not known when he is expected to return to the lineup.

Alex Guerrero will get another start at the hot corner on Friday against the Angels.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:16 pm ET) Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw was scratched from yet another scheduled start on Friday, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Kershaw is dealing with a lingering hip injury, which caused him to miss his originally scheduled start on Wednesday. He went through pre-game workouts that included throwing off the mound and flat ground, but was scratched shortly after playing catch on the flat surface.

Zack Greinke will fill in for Kershaw on Friday and take on the Angels in their cross-town matchup. He has a .036 ERA with 45 strikeouts and just two runs allowed over his last 50 2/3 innings.

To make room for Soria, the Pirates designated pitcher Deolis Guerra for assignment, the team announced

Guerra was 2-0, with a 6.48 ERA in 10 relief appearances with the Pirates. 

Soria was 3-1 with a 2.85 ERA and 23 saves for the Tigers.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:04 pm ET) The Pirates have recalled left-hander Bobby LaFromboise from Triple-A Indianapolis. The left-hander had an earlier stint with the Pirates, pitching a scoreless inning of relief back in May.

He is 1-1 with a 2.72 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 42 appearances at Triple-A this season. He will take the roster spot of A.J. Burnett, who was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:01 pm ET) The Cubs have designated for assignment right-handed pitcher Ben Rowen, per MLB.com.

Pirates' A.J. Burnett to 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:59 pm ET) The Pirates have placed struggling pitcher A.J. Burnett on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. Burnett has been dreadful over his last three times out, going 1-2 with a whopping 10.13 ERA in that span.

Burnett claimed he was healthy following Thursday's disaster of an outing, when he allowed seven earned runs against the Reds. But regardless, he will be out for at least the next two weeks.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:45 pm ET) A matchup against tough Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez has Mets first baseman Lucas Duda out of the lineup Friday night.

Duda, who is 3-for-17 lifetime against Gonzalez, is just two days removed from a three-homer game. He has also hit lefties well this year with 28 hits in 93 at-bats.


Manager: Mariners C Jesus Montero will play extensively
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:34 pm ET) Mariners just-promoted catcher Jesus Montero will be receiving plenty of playing time as the team seeks to evaluate him.

"My hope is to play him as much as possible," Lloyd McClendon told ESPN. "We need to find out about him and see what he's got."

He didn't have much in his previous stints with Seattle after a strong rookie season in 2012. He has since managed just 28 hits in 128 at-bats and spent nearly all of his time in the minors.
