Ray’s Ramblings: Heading to the Holiday
Ray Flowers

Manager Chip Hale says Zack Greinke is feeling better Friday but no decision has been made regarding the disabled list. He will not make his next scheduled start.

Archie Bradley has already been moved up to start in Greinke's place on Monday. It could just be a tweak of the oblique, in which case he won't miss much time at all. That said, the all-star break is coming up very soon and it would be smart to rest him until after the weekend.

Yu Darvish is scheduled to make a rehab start for Double-A Frisco at Northwest Arkansas on Monday. He is expected to throw 3 innings and around 45 pitches.

As Darvish begins his second rehab stint of the year, his path back to the majors will likely be similar to the first. He'll make three or four rehab starts before returning to the majors to rejoin the Rangers lineup. The Rangers are the best team in the American League right now and will only improve with Darvish's services.

Archie Bradley will start Monday for the Diamondbacks.

With Greinke day-to-day and no timetable on if he'll start a game anytime soon, Archie Bradley's been moved up in the rotation. The young right-hander has been decent this year as he struck out 53 batters in 52 innings. Bradley needs to show more consistency to be recognized as a player who should be owned in all formats.

Khris Davis (shoulder) is back in the Athletics lineup Friday.

After missing Wednesday and Thursday's games, Davis has returned to the Oakland lineup. It's perfect timing as he gets to face left-handed pitcher Jeff Locke, who he has plenty of experience against. He's only 4-for-23 against Locke in his career but that's more at-bats against him than the rest of Oakland's lineup combined.
