  • MIL First Baseman #12
    Brewers placed 1B Rhys Hoskins on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain.
    No word yet on the severity of the injury, but it sounds like the Brewers want to give Hoskins at least a couple days to rest and recover. The 31-year-old slugger was just starting to really heat up again at the dish, so the timing is a bit unfortunate. There should be some clarity on his status in the coming days as it sounds like Milwaukee is still gathering medical information.
  • MIA Starting Pitcher #27
    Edward Cabrera (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Friday.
    Cabrera landed on the shelf back in early May with a right shoulder impingement, so it’s an extremely encouraging development that he’s progressed to throwing a bullpen session already. There isn’t a definitive timetable for his return yet, but he’s expected to return to Miami’s starting rotation at some point next month.
  • MIA Shortstop #7
    Tim Anderson (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday with Triple-A Jacksonville.
    Anderson hit the injured list earlier this month with lower back tightness and is already on the verge of returning. He could presumably be back early next week, barring something unexpected.
  • DET Relief Pitcher #7
    Shelby Miller (elbow) resumed throwing on Friday.
    Miller underwent a hydro dissection procedure earlier this week to help alleviate nerve inflammation in his right elbow. The 33-year-old righty is presumably at least a few weeks away from returning to Detroit’s bullpen mix.
  • CLE Center Fielder #38
    Steven Kwan (hamstring) took batting practice on Friday.
    Kwan has resumed baseball activities and is progressing well, according to Guardians manager Stephen Vogt. The 26-year-old contact-oriented outfielder remains without a firm return timetable, but it sounds like he could return to Cleveland’s lineup before the end of the month following a minor league rehab assignment.
  • BOS Catcher #32
    Red Sox activated C Tyler Heineman from the 10-day injured list; optioned him to Triple-A Worcester.
    Heineman will remain stationed at Triple-A Worcester as emergency catching depth after wrapping up a rehab assignment. The 32-year-old journeyman backstop was sent to the injured list back in late April with a right hamstring strain.
  • SEA Second Baseman #7
    Jorge Polanco (hamstring) remains absent from the lineup for Saturday’s showdown against the Orioles.
    Polanco hasn’t been placed on the injured list yet, but he’s out of Seattle’s lineup for the fourth straight contest on Saturday afternoon with Josh Rojas filling in at the keystone. The 30-year-old infielder has been sidelined since exiting Monday’s game against the Royals with right hamstring tightness.
  • COL Catcher #35
    Elias Díaz (hand) remains absent from the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Giants.
    It’ll be Hunter Goodman handling the catching duties on Saturday afternoon with Díaz sidelined for a third consecutive contest due to left hand soreness. Fantasy managers should still consider him day-to-day for now.
  • NYM Left Fielder #9
    Brandon Nimmo (illness) is back in the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Marlins.
    Nimmo is back in New York’s lineup in left field and batting third following a two-game absence due to a stomach bug. The interesting twist here is that Francisco Lindor is up in the leadoff spot with lefty Braxton Garrett taking the hill for Miami.
  • PIT Shortstop #15
    Oneil Cruz is not in the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Cubs.
    It’s a routine off day for Cruz with lefty Shota Imanaga toeing the rubber for Chicago. The 25-year-old shortstop has hit a small rough patch of late, hitting .207 (6-for-29) over his last seven contests. He does have two homers and one steal during that stretch, but has also struck out eight times with only one walk as well.
  • MIN Center Fielder #25
    Twins activated OF Byron Buxton from the 10-day injured list.
    Buxton returns to Minnesota’s lineup for Saturday’s showdown against the division-rival Guardians following a two-week absence due to right knee inflammation. The 30-year-old center fielder has managed to avoid serious injury so far, but has gotten off to an icy start at the plate, batting .250/.300/.391 with one homer and one steal in 100 plate appearances over 28 contests.
