Hyun-Soo Kim Headshot

Kim is not in the lineup Friday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

After starting each of the last three games, Kim will head to the bench as the Yankees send lefty-throwing CC Sabathia to the mound. Recently activated Joey Rickard will take over for him in left field.

Casey Lawrence Headshot

Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet reports.

The 29-year-old got off to rough a start with the Blue Jays to start the season, posting a 8.78 ERA and 6.35 FIP across 13.1 innings of work. He'll look to rediscover his potential effectiveness against minor-league hitters in with Triple-A Buffalo.

Joey Rickard Headshot

Rickard is playing left field and batting leadoff Friday against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Rickard will draw the start in his first game after being activated from the disabled list earlier Friday. He'll take over in left field for Hyun Soo Kim as the Yankees send southpaw CC Sabathia to the mound.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia Headshot

Saltalamacchia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday, John Lott of the Athletic reports.

The Blue Jays finally ran out of patience with Saltalamacchia, who has struggled mightily at the plate this season. After a disappointing 2016 in which he hit for a .171 batting average, the veteran catcher is slashing .040/.077/.040 in his 26 plate appearances so far in 2017.
3:49 pm (EST)
Luke Maile Headshot

Maile was promoted to the Blue Jays' big-league roster on Friday, John Lott of the Athletic reports.

Maile will take the place of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who was designated for assignment on Friday. So far with Triple-A Buffalo this season, the 26-year-old catcher has slashed .195/.214/.195 in 42 plate appearances. He'll likely provide mostly defensive value as backup catcher for the Blue Jays this season.
3:46 pm (EST)
Nelson Cruz Headshot

Cruz was scratched from Friday's contest against the Indians with a leg cramp, Shannon Drayer of reports.

Not much else is known given the vague diagnosis, so expect another update once the Mariners release more on Cruz's status. Taylor Motter replaced him in the lineup for the game.
3:44 pm (EST)
Didi Gregorius Headshot

Gregorius is starting at shortstop and batting sixth Friday against the Orioles.

Gregorius will slot right back into the starting lineup after being activated from the disabled list earlier Friday. He'll continue to serve as the Yankees' everyday shortstop moving forward.
3:38 pm (EST)
James McCann Headshot

McCann is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox.

It appears to be a normal day off for McCann, as Alex Avila will instead get the start. The 26-year-old catcher has gotten off to a hot-and-cold start as a hitter this season. While he has hit for a disappointing .173 batting average, he has also slugged five home runs.
3:37 pm (EST)
Lonnie Chisenhall Headshot

Chisenhall is not in the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

Chisenhall will head to the bench as the Mariners send out lefty-throwing Ariel Miranda. Austin Jackson will take over in center field in his stead.
3:36 pm (EST)
Sammy Solis Headshot

Solis underwent an MRI on his elbow Friday and the team is awaiting results, Chelsea James of the Washington Post reports.

Solis has been dealing with nerve irritation over the past couple weeks and seems to be lingering for longer than was previously expected. The MRI should provide a clearer picture on when he will be able to return to regular action.
