by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) DeGrom improved to 3-0, allowing three runs - none earned - on two hits and four walks while striking out five over six innings against the Giants on Saturday,

DeGrom didn't have his best stuff but benefitted from New York six runs early against Matt Cain. His velocity is still mainly in the 93 mph but was able to hit 95 mph on the gun a few times when needed. Despite an uneven month due to his lat injury and issues with his newborn, deGrom still posted a 1.02 ERA.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Will not start Sunday due to shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Iglesias (shoulder) will not make his scheduled start Sunday, the Cincinnati Enquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans reports.

Tim Adleman will indeed be recalled from Triple-A to make the start in the series finale against the Phillies, after Iglesias felt a "pinch" in his right shoulder Friday. Iglesias' status will be updated once the club announces what the next step will be for him, but it's possible he could be headed to the disabled list.

Padres' Matt Thornton: Remains without timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Thornton (Achilles) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday but still remains without a timetable for return, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Thornton's Achilles is said to be healing but still needs added time to heal completely. The left-hander intends to ramp up running activities within a week but manager Andy Green indicated that fielding practice will be an important benchmark to surpass before a return to the diamond becomes a legitimate possibility. The 39-year-old was placed on the 15-day DL on April 8.

Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: To start Friday in Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Maeda will make his next start Friday against the Blue Jays, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

According to McCullough, the Dodgers wanted to use Maeda for Friday's contest in order to avoid using lefty Alex Wood against Toronto's right-handed power hitters. Maeda has been nothing short of impressive in his first major league season, notching a 1.41 ERA across his first five starts.

Reds' Anthony DeSclafani: Reports discomfort following rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) DeSclafani felt discomfort in his side during Friday's rehab start with Low-A Dayton, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

According to manager Bryan Price, DeSclafani reported some "sensation" in his side as he got deeper into Friday's outing. The skipper added that the Reds are doing "everything we can to avoid a setback" and "we're not going to push him through it." Those comments would suggest a return next week is unlikely for DeSclafani, but nothing is set in stone at this time.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Uncertain for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Iglesias felt a "pinch" in his right shoulder Friday and is uncertain for Sunday's start in Pittsburgh, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The right-hander was scheduled for an evaluation Saturday, but the results have not yet been disclosed. Tim Adleman was scratched from his scheduled start with the Reds' Triple-A Louisville affiliate in case he's needed in place of Iglesias on Sunday. Iglesias' average fastball velocity has been down in the early going this season, but this is the first word of any sort of ailment.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Puig is not in the lineup Saturday against the Padres, Jack Baer of reports.

Puig will get a rare day off as the Dodgers go with Enrique Hernandez in right field. He'll bat sixth against Padres starter Colin Rea.

Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Riding pine Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) 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.

Reds' Devin Mesoraco: Dealing with shoulder stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Mesoraco is out of the lineup Saturday with left shoulder stiffness, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Manager Bryan Price said Mesoraco is available to come off the bench Saturday, and suggested the 27-year-old could be back behind the plate Sunday or Monday. It's good that it's not another lower-body issue for Mesoraco, but until he gets back on the field and starts finally producing, some lingering concern with remain.

Reds' Cody Reed: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(4/30/2016) Reed (finger) returned to action this week, allowing one run on five hits over five innings, striking out six.

Reed got a false start to the season between rainouts and this injury, but he'll likely accumulate a handful of starts at Louisville before getting the call later this summer.
