Salvador Pérez (R) Headshot

Manager Ned Yost reaffirmed Wednesday that Perez's rib tightness is "nothing major", adding that the catcher is feeling "much better" and will return to the lineup Friday against Boston, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Perez left Tuesday's game in the fifth inning after experiencing tightness following an at-bat. He was not in the lineup Wednesday, but Yost said that was only precautionary. Cam Gallagher was brought up from Triple-A Omaha to replace Perez on Wednesday, but the former is likely headed back before Friday's game.

Andrei Markov Headshot

Markov will return to his native Russia and join the KHL for the upcoming 2017-18 campaign.

Markov told reporters he couldn't imagine playing for another NHL team. No doubt the chance of suiting up at the 2018 Winter Olympics -- something he wouldn't be able to do in the NHL -- factored into the decision as well. After 16 seasons with the Habs, this likely will end the blueliner's NHL career with 990 games in which he tallied 119 goals, 453 helpers and 505 PIM.

Russell Martin (R) Headshot

Martin was ejected from Thursday's game against the Athletics.

The veteran backstop was tossed immediately after starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. Martin was 0-for-2 with two strikeouts prior to exiting, marking the eighth contest in a row in which he whiffed.

Yasiel Puig (R) Headshot

Puig went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

The 25-year-old has now matched the career-highs he set in 2012 of homers (19) and steals (11) in eight fewer games. Outside of a .256 batting average that is being suppressed by a career-low .263 BABIP, Puig has been four-category contributor in fantasy this season, turning his career around in the process.
