Alex Avila (head) felt "disoriented" after taking some swings Thursday and Friday, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Lineup Change: Eugenio Suarez is now hitting seventh on Friday and James McCann is hitting eighth. 

McCann is getting his first big league start, and was a good catching option in Triple-A Toledo this season. An interesting guy for a daily league when he starts, but don't expect this to be a full time thing once Alex Avila comes back from his foul to facemask issue.

Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) will join the team in Miami after playing in an instructional league game Friday, and will likely be activated before Saturday's game.

Once again, an injury plagued season derails the Washington slugger's season. It will be interesting to see how he performs coming off a hamstring injury, and for those who stashed him on their DL, he may provide some useful stats in the waning part of the season.

Brandon Belt has returned to the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

Unlike Pagan, the team will need to get him substantial playing time to help him get ready for the postseason, assuming the Giants get a wild card berth.

Angel Pagan has returned to the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

Pagan has been out with a back issue, but will bat leadoff in Friday's game. If the problem flares up again, or if the Giants just want to be careful, he may find himself on the bench a game or two as the season wears down.

Jimmy Rollins (hamstring) still has to run sprints before returning. If that goes well, he could return this weekend.

The veteran shortstop would like to get back on the field before the season concludes, but that ultimately depends on how his hamstring responds. He is having a very nice season with 17 home runs and 28 steals over 538 at-bats.

Roenis Elias had an MRI test Friday on his elbow, but won't get results until Monday.

We can basically rule out Elias for the remainder of the regular season. It's possible that if the Mariners go deep into the playoffs, he could pitch in some capacity, but there the odds certainly skew towards Elias not throwing another pitch in 2014.

Angels recalled RHP Drew Rucinski from Double-A Arkansas.

Rucinski appeared in one game for the Angels in July. With the Los Angeles having already clinched, he should see a few relief appearances over the next week.

Josh Reddick says his neck grabbed while taking swings Friday. He'll lay off batting practice.

Reddick is actually out of action due to an ankle issue, but chalk up another problem for the right fielder. He is not in the lineup on Friday night and his status for the rest of the weekend is in limbo.
