Hunter Harvey SP BAL 8 hours ago

Harvey (groin) has been shut down for the time being and will visit with a specialist, Brittany Ghiroli of reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvey remains without a firm timetable, but it doesn't appear that he'll be back on the field anytime soon. More information will be available following Harvey's visit with the specialist, but manager Buck Showalter commented that he remains confident that Harvey will pitch at some point in 2016.

Matt Wieters C/DH BAL 8 hours ago

Wieters is in the lineup Saturday but will rest Sunday, Rich Dubroff of CSN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wieters will catch back-to-back games for the first time all season, and he'll bat fifth Saturday against White Sox starter Mat Latos. After the day off Sunday, Wieters will likely be back in the fold for Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees.

Jason Kipnis 2B/DH CLE 8 hours ago

Kipnis will bat leadoff against the Phillies on Saturday, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Manager Terry Francona has been experimenting with Carlos Santana atop the order against right-handers in recent weeks, but he will give Kipnis a chance to set the table against Jerad Eickhoff on Saturday. It marks Kipnis' first time leading off this season. Kipnis started 121 games in the leadoff spot last year, slashing .311/.385/.476 over 562 plate appearances.

Jake Lamb 3B ARI 8 hours ago

Lamb is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

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.

DTDDevin Mesoraco C CIN 8 hours ago

Mesoraco is out of the lineup Saturday with left shoulder stiffness, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

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.

Rajai Davis OF/DH CLE 8 hours ago

Davis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This makes it three absences (all against right-handed starters) in four games for Davis, who has gone 17-for-61 with two homers and six stolen bases in 18 games so far. Five of his six steals have come when leading off, but Davis' chances atop the order may be limited to when the Indians face a lefty moving forward.

Cody Reed P CIN 9 hours ago

Reed (finger) returned to action this week, allowing one run on five hits over five innings, striking out six.

Competitive Edge Analysis

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.

Jerry Sands 1B/RF/DH CWS 9 hours ago

Sands will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh Saturday against the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Avisail Garcia out Saturday with a hamstring injury, Sands will step in for his sixth start of the season. Sands hasn't done a whole lot in his limited opportunities so far, but he does have a home run, and more at-bats should be available for as long as Garcia remains sidelined.

Jimmy Rollins SS CWS 9 hours ago

Rollins is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 37-year-old will sit in favor of Tyler Saladino after striking out three times in Friday's loss. Rollins hasn't contributed much in terms of fantasy production this season, but he has started to run a bit within the past week, notching a pair of steals in his last five starts.

Lonnie Chisenhall 3B/RF/DH CLE 9 hours ago

Chisenhall (neck) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A mild neck strain cost Chisenhall two starts, but he will slot back in Saturday to face right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Chisenhall has gone just 2-for-18 since his return from a forearm injury, and figures to remain buried in the bottom third of the order for the foreseeable future.
