Josh Collmenter P ARI 53 minutes ago

Collmenter was reinstated from the disabled list Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After placing both Shelby Miller (finger) and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) on the DL, the Diamondbacks were in dire need of pitching help. Although Collmenter is likely not ready to pitch in long relief yet (he only threw 20 pitches in his last rehab appearance), he could move into a more expanded role once he builds up more strength in his shoulder.

15DChris Young P KC 54 minutes ago

Young (forearm) will pitch out of the bullpen once he is activated off the DL, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran right-hander has been progressing well since being placed on the disabled list due to forearm tightness earlier in May. He reportedly looked in control during his simulated game Friday and he could be activated at some point over the weekend. However, his spot in the Royals' rotation won't be waiting for him when he returns as Danny Duffy appears to have locked down a starting role. Young's experience as a starter will give him some value as a long reliever, but he possesses very little fantasy upside at this point in his career.

15DRubby De La Rosa SP ARI 57 minutes ago

De La Rosa was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with right elbow inflammation.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's unclear when this issue cropped up, but it could be related to the start he skipped earlier in the month. Regardless, it's unclear how severe the injury is or how long it will keep the 27-year-old out of commission, but that should become clearer once the right-hander becomes throwing again. Josh Collmenter was reinstated from the disabled list and Dominic Leone and Silvino Bracho were recalled from Triple-A to bolster the bullpen, but the Diamondbacks will likely have to make another move in order to fill De La Rosa's spot in the rotation when that rolls along Monday.

15DShelby Miller SP ARI 1 hour ago

Miller (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

As expected, Miller will head to the DL for what is now being classified as a right finger sprain. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but a timetable for his return should become clearer once he's able to begin throwing again. The Diamondbacks reinstated Josh Collmenter from the DL and called up Dominic Leone and Silvino Bracho from Triple-A Reno to solidify the bullpen until Sunday when they need another starter, when they may call up Archie Bradley from the minors.

Justin Upton LF DET 1 hour ago

Upton (quadriceps) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Upton is making his first start since Saturday after he missed the entire series against the Phillies with quadriceps tightness. He's back in the order Friday, batting sixth and playing left field against Sean Manaea and the A's. Prior to sitting out with a sore quad, Upton had begun to turn things around at the plate, bating .269/.345/.346 in his last seven games.

DTDBrandon Belt 1B SF 1 hour ago

Belt (ankle) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After suffering a mild ankle sprain in Wednesday's contest, manager Bruce Bochy decided to give Belt another day off to get his ankle completely up to speed. Buster Posey will slide over to first base to replace him while Trevor Brown assumes the catching duties.

Ian Kinsler 2B DET 1 hour ago

Kinsler (illness) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the A's.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After missing two straight games earlier in the week due to flu-like symptoms, the Tigers will have their leadoff man back in the lineup for Friday's series opener. Kinsler will draw a favorable matchup against young left-hander Sean Manaea, who has a .346 BAA against right-handed hitters this season.

DTDHunter Pence RF SF 1 hour ago

Pence (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Rockies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Some thought that Pence might return for Friday's contest after having an extra off day Thursday, but instead he'll head to the bench for the sixth game in a row. Jarrett Parker will fill in for the 33-year-old in right field.

Clay Buchholz SP BOS 1 hour ago

Buchholz has lost his spot in Boston's rotation and he will likely be replaced by Eduardo Rodriguez, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After manager John Farrell was non-committal about Buchholz's status moving forward Thursday, it started to become more and more apparent that the veteran righty may have pitched his way out of the rotation. Buchholz was tagged for six earned runs over 5.0 innings Thursday, marking his sixth start of the season in which he allowed five or more runs. He'll work out of the bullpen for the time being, likely as a long reliever, while Rodriguez (knee) is expected to be recalled to start Tuesday.

OUTAlex Presley LF/RF MIL 1 hour ago

Presley is not in Friday's lineup for the series opener against the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Presley has cooled off since getting more playing time in right field, posting a lowly .392 OPS over the past two weeks. He'll head to the bench and cede the start in right field to Ramon Flores on Friday.
