James Paxton Headshot

Paxton (forearm) will get the start Wednesday against the Rockies, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News-Tribune reports.

The Mariners are getting close to full strength in the rotation with Paxton's impending return. Fortunately, Paxton will dodge a start at Coors Field and take the hill at home for the second half of the Mariners' interleague set with the Rockies. Paxton had been electric prior to landing on the disabled list, notching a 1.43 ERA with a 0.98 WHIP alongside 45 strikeouts in 37.2 innings.

Franchy Cordero Headshot

Cordero was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

With Manuel Margot heading to the disabled list, the Padres needed to fill a roster spot. Cordero, 22, has slashed .289/.349/.520 with seven home runs at Triple-A this season. Matt Szczur figures to see the bulk of the playing time in center while Margot is on the shelf, but Cordero will add depth off the bench,

Patric Hornqvist Headshot

Hornqvist (upper body) appears to be nearing a return, ESPN reports.

A less obvious benefit of the Penguins advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals is that they will end up having three full days to rest before Monday's Game 1 clash with the Predators. Since Hornqvist went as far as taking warmups ahead of Thursday's ultimate series-clinching contest against the Senators, we'd be surprised if the net-front scoring specialist doesn't suit up for the start of the Cup finals.

Manny Margot Headshot

Margot (calf) was officially placedon the 10-day disabled list Saturday.

There had been concern that Margot's calf issue would require a DL stint, and Saturday's move serves as confirmation. Margot's disabled list placement was backdated to May 25, so there's a chance he could return late next weekend, but a return later that week seems more likely. The Padres recalled Franchy Cordero in a corresponding move Saturday.
1:06 pm (EST)
Daniel Murphy Headshot

Murphy is out of Saturday's lineup against the Padres, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

He was also out of the lineup Friday, so it would seem that something is amiss with Murphy, although no injury has been reported at this time. Wilmer Difo will start at second base and hit eighth.
1:02 pm (EST)
Bradley Zimmer Headshot

Zimmer is out of the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

He has hit .292/.414/.458 with one home run and two steals in 24 at-bats since his promotion. Austin Jackson and Daniel Robertson will each receive a start in center field and right field, respectively.
12:57 pm (EST)
Danny Espinosa Headshot

Espinosa is out of Saturday's lineup against the Marlins.

He is hitting .077 with one home run and a 32 percent strikeout rate over his last 65 at-bats. Nolan Fontana will start at second base and hit eighth.
12:53 pm (EST)
Cameron Maybin Headshot

Maybin (knee) is back in action Saturday, starting in left field and leading off against the Marlins.

He left Thursday's game with knee soreness and sat out Friday, but will be back in his customary spot against righty Vance Worley. Maybin had been on a tear prior to the injury, hitting .429 with two home runs, one stolen base and a 5:8 K:BB in his last 35 at-bats.
12:51 pm (EST)
César Hernández Headshot

Hernandez (groin) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

A groin issue kept Hernandez out of the lineup, but he appears to be past the issue to the point where he'll start at second base and bat leadoff Saturday. Hernandez has been strong at the dish this season, slashing .289/.351/.412 with 13 extra base hits. He'll face Bronson Arroyo in his return to the lineup Saturday.
12:50 pm (EST)
J.D. Martínez Headshot

Martinez is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

The foot injury that sidelined him to begin the year has not prevented him from raking since returning to action, but it is understandable that the Tigers would want to give him a break for one of the two games Saturday. Tyler Collins will start in right field and hit seventh.
