White Sox activated RHP Daniel Webb from the 15-day disabled list.

Webb was off on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. Despite that going well, he is fantasy irrelevant as he is a low-leverage bullpen arm for the Pale Hose. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

David Wright is experiencing "a little" stiffness, particularly in his right shoulder, manager Terry Collins said.

Any twinges that Wright experiences after missing so much of the season have to raise red flags about his health. He is being replaced in the field by Jose Uribe on Saturday. That being said, Wright has played 22 innings over the past two days, and the Mets are wise to give him time off. Uribe is hitting in the sixth hole against Boston starting right-hander Joe Kelly, and is valued at a very reasonable $2700 on FanDuel. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Update: Buster Posey is sore from being hit by a pitch just above his elbow on Friday, but anticipated being able to pinch hit Saturday and start Sunday.

It sounds like the pitch he took off his arm on Friday will not sideline him for any extended period of time. Consider his absence from the lineup on Saturday a simple day off after the late Friday night game. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Blue Jays have designated Ty Kelly for assignment

The Blue Jays claimed 1B/OF Danny Dorn off waivers from the Diamondbacks. To make room for Dorn, Kelly was DFA'd. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Buster Posey is not in the Giants starting lineup on Saturday.

This could be that the team is giving him a day off after a night game, or it could be in response to him taking a pitch off his elbow in the walk-off win against the Cardinals Friday night. His playing status for Sunday will tell fantasy players more. The Giants will use Andrew Susac behind the dish for the Saturday contest against the host Cards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Miguel Sano plans to be back in the lineup Saturday night after missing Friday night's game with a sore hamstring.

Twins manager Paul Molitor had said that the issue was not serious, and with him back in the lineup as DH on Saturday, that seems to clearly be the case here. He will cost you $4500 on FanDuel Saturday evening. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Bartolo Colon will be available for inning in relief Saturday if needed.

Colon went seven innings on Wednesday, getting the win in Philly and shutting out the opponent on just five hits. With the Mets continuing to fight to win their division, they may opt to use their inconsistent veteran as a means to save their bullpen arms. Colon is scheduled to face the Phillies again on Monday, but that will depend on whether he pitches in relief. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Andrew Faulkner from Triple-A Round Rock

Faulker will join the Rangers bullpen Saturday. He doesn't hold much in the way of fantasy value so feel free to move along from here. Analysis: Howard Bender

Daniel Norris said he's feeling improvement in strained oblique. He could be cleared to start playing catch next week.

Norris wants to get back on the hill before the season ends, but it's going to be real close. He'll continue to rehab and the Tigers will re-evaluate him regularly to see just how much and how soon they can increase his level of activity. Analysis: Howard Bender

Michael Cuddyer is not in the Mets' starting lineup Saturday.

With right-hander Joe Kelly on the hill for the Red Sox, Cuddyer will take a seat in favor of lefty-swinging Michael Conforto in right and Daniel Murphy at first. Analysis: Howard Bender

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Saturday.

Ramirez was scratched Friday with the shoulder issue as well, so his absence Saturday isn't all that surprising. Consider him day-to-day. Alejandro De Aza will fill in temporarily. Analysis: Howard Bender

David Ortiz (heel) is not in the Red Sox lineup on Saturday.

Ortiz left Friday's game with heel soreness so his absence Saturday isn't surprising. With the game at CitiField and no DH, the Red Sox are just fine without him for the day. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jason Castro left Friday's game with a right quad strain.

Consider Castro day-to-day and expect the Astros to re-evaluate him over the weekend. Hank Conger will start seeing a little more work while Castro recovers. Analysis: Howard Bender
