Cameron Maybin Headshot

Maybin was prematurely lifted from Thursday's game against the Rays due to right knee soreness, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Maybin was 1-for-3 before exiting the game after five innings. Cliff Pennington subbed in for him, pushing Jefry Marte to left field and Ben Revere to center field. It's unclear how serious the injury is at this point, though more should be known following the conclusion of Thursday's contest.

Yulieski Gurriel Headshot

Gurriel is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

Gurriel is just 2-for-20 (.100) over his last six games, so he'll head to the bench for Thursday's series finale to regather himself. Marwin Gonzalez will draw the start at first base in his stead.
3:49 pm (EST)
Carlos Beltrán Headshot

Beltran is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

Beltran is in the midst of a brutal 6-for-37 (.162) slide over his past 10 games, so he'll head to the bench to clear his mind. Evan Gattis will serve as the DH, opening up a spot for Juan Centeno to start behind the dish.
3:45 pm (EST)
Carlos Correa Headshot

Correa (illness) is playing shortstop and batting cleanup Thursday against the Tigers.

Correa is apparently feeling better after missing the two games due to an illness. The 22-year-old, who is slashing .276/.361/.455 with six homers and 24 RBI across 156 at-bats this season, will face Justin Verlander in his return to the lineup.
3:40 pm (EST)
Asdrubal Cabrera Headshot

Cabrera (thumb) could be activated from the disabled list Thursday prior to the Mets' game with the Padres, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Although Cabrera wasn't placed on the DL until May 16, the move was retroactive to May 14, meaning that the infielder is already eligible to return to action. He reportedly was seen in the Mets' clubhouse (meaning he's back from his rehab assignment), so it seems like his return to the lineup is imminent. No move has officially been made yet, but more information on his status should come forth as Thursday's game time approaches.
3:32 pm (EST)
Patrick Eaves Headshot

Eaves missed the final 10 games of the postseason due to a high-ankle sprain.

With the Ducks eliminated from the playoffs by the Predators on Monday, the team dropped the nebulous "lower-body" tag and we now have a better idea as to why Eaves was not able to suit up for the crucial games at the end. High-ankle sprains often require at least a month of recovery time, so while it's disappointing to many that Eaves was not able to play, it's now more understandable. The 33-year-old enjoyed something of a breakout campaign in his 12th season in the league, as his 32 goals and 51 points between his time in Dallas and Anaheim are new career highs. It remains to be seen if the Ducks will sign Eaves to stay on long term as he enters the free agent market this offseason.
3:30 pm (EST)
Brandon Maurer Headshot

Maurer -- who was used in the eighth inning Wednesday -- is still in the mix for save opportunities despite Brad Hand getting the nod in the ninth inning of a 6-5 win over the Mets,'s AJ Cassavell reports.

With a 6.50 ERA and two blown saves through 18 innings, it is no surprise that manager Andy Green is exploring other options at the tail end of his bullpen. Despite Hand being clearly the superior option, it appears that the San Diego's skipper will play matchups in the ninth like he did Wednesday against the lefty-heavy portion of the Mets' lineup. Owners chasing saves have no choice but to hang on to Maurer until he is officially removed from the closer role.
3:16 pm (EST)
Shin-Soo Choo Headshot

Choo is not in the lineup Saturday against the Red Sox.

With the Red Sox sending southpaw Drew Pomeranz to the mound, Choo will head to the bench as Rougned Odor serves as DH and Pete Kozma slides in to start at second base. Choo has only started six games against lefty pitchers this season vs 34 against right-handers.
3:08 pm (EST)
Wil Myers Headshot

Myers went 2-for-5 with a double and a pair of RBI in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

Wednesday's two-hit performance snapped an 0-for-16 stretch for the All-Star first baseman. Even after the five-game slump, Myers still owns a solid .275/.319/.529 slash line through 48 games.
