Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Riding pine Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3:31 pm ET) Lamb is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

He's riding the pine with a lefty in Chris Rusin taking the hill for Colorado, as has been the norm for Lamb against southpaws in recent weeks. Lamb went 0-for-4 on Friday but has been getting the job done against right-handers so far, slashing .306/.371/.516 with a 6:11 BB:K. He should continue batting second against right-handed starters.


Marlins' Martin Prado: Records another three-hit outing in Friday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(12:55 pm ET) Prado went 3-for-5 with a double and run scored in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Brewers.

The veteran infielder's bat has been smoking, with Friday's performance marking his third straight three-hit effort. Prado has hit safely in all but one game in which he's registered an official at-bat in this season, and is hitting a red-hot .545 (12-for-22) with two doubles, a walk and three RBI over his last five games. He's proven to be an outstanding spark plug early in the lineup for a Marlins club that will need plenty of help at the top of the order to make up for the 80-game absence of Dee Gordon (suspension).


Mets' David Wright: Out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) Wright is out of the lineup Saturday against the Giants.

The theme of Wright getting a rest day about once a week continues, and Wilmer Flores will start at third base and hit seventh Saturday. Wright has 14 strikeouts in his last 25 at-bats, but he's getting on base at a solid clip, sitting with a .353 OBP on the season.


Rockies' Nolan Arenado: Hits 10th homer Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8:33 am ET) Arenado went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Friday at the Diamondbacks.

Arenado's 10th blast of the year put the Rockies comfortably ahead in a game in which they blew out the Diamondbacks. The slugger's on fire as he's now homered in three straight contests and raised his slash line to .287/.354/.678.


Padres' Alexi Amarista: Not returning soon
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/29/2016) Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Amarista (hamstring) is not close to a return, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

An estimated timetable for Amarista's recovery was not provided by the team when he hit the DL, but it sounds like he will be out well beyond the minimum 15 days. Even on the Padres, Amarista will likely remain merely a bench option upon his eventual return.


Padres' Yangervis Solarte: Not close to returning
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/29/2016) Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Solarte (hamstring) is not close to returning, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

When Solarte first hit the DL, the Padres were hopeful he would make it back before the end of April, but the 28-year-old was just cleared to begin running on an anti-gravity treadmill this week. He is without a timetable for a return, but considering where he's at in his recovery, it seems possible Solarte could miss the majority of May.


Cubs' Kris Bryant: Likely out for weekend series against Braves
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/29/2016) Bryant is likely to miss the weekend series against the Braves due to the sprained ankle he suffered in Thursday's game, WSCR-AM radio's Bruce Levine reports.

Manager Joe Maddon said he may use Bryant as a pinch-hitter if he is cleared by the trainers, but it sounds like he won't be in the lineup for any this weekend's games. Javier Baez is starting at third base Friday, and figures to see the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner in the short term, with Tommy La Stella also angling for a handful of at-bats while Bryant is out. It sounds like the soonest Bryant could return to the lineup would be Monday in Pittsburgh.


Cubs' Kris Bryant: Could be out a couple days
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/29/2016) While Bryant's ankle injury is not considered serious, he will sit out Friday and could miss several games, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

An MRI taken on Bryant's ankle Thursday night did not reveal any serious issues, and the Cubs are not concerned about Bryant's status, but it appears the team could hold him out for a few days to allow him to get back to 100 percent. Javier Baez will start at third base Friday, and the Cubs figure to use either him or Tommy La Stella at the hot corner until Bryant returns.


Cubs' Kris Bryant: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/29/2016) Bryant (ankle) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves, but the Cubs are not concerned about his injury, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Bryant will be held out of at least one game after exiting Thursday's contest with the ankle injury, but given the Cubs' optimism, it does not seem he will be sidelined for long. Javier Baez will man the hot corner Friday in Bryant's place.


Dodgers' Justin Turner: Will start all three games against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/28/2016) Manager Dave Roberts said Thursday that Turner will start every game in the Dodgers' upcoming series against the Padres, J.P Hoonstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Turner is out of the lineup Thursday, but Roberts told reporters that he'd be in the lineup for all three games this weekend when the Dodgers face the Padres. Cesar Vargas, Colin Rea, and Drew Pomeranz are the scheduled starters that Turner and the Dodgers will be facing over the weekend.
