Oh, Tyson Ross. Your fantasy owners are going to hate you for Thursday's debacle. You had been pitching so well, too.
First pitch: The Indians and White Sox get underway at 2:10 p.m. ET, while NL action begins with a couple of 7:05 contests.
Interleague DH issues: With the Mariners facing three righthanders in St. Louis this weekend, it's hard to say how the playing time will be shared between Kendrys Morales and Justin Smoak. Haven't heard anything from the Mariners on this yet.
Streaming starters: Another decent job by Corey Kluber raised our record to 92-57. The weekend picks are Charlie Morton (owned in 9.7 percent of FOXSports.com leagues) versus the Cubs tonight; the surging Ubaldo Jimenez (24.4 percent owned) at the White Sox on Saturday; and Dillon Gee (17.4 percent owned) versus the Marlins on Sunday.
On to the rest of the news:
- Yankees OF Brett Gardner left Thursday's game with a strained oblique muscle. Oblique happens to be French for "3-4 weeks," and there are 16 days left in the regular season.
- How serious is Hanley Ramirez's "mild left hamstring strain." I'm not sure, but with a 12.5-game lead in the NL West, the Dodgers have no reason to rush him back. Get Hanley out of daily lineups until you hear some good news.
- David Hale makes his first big-league start tonight for the Braves. Hale had a 3.22 ERA at Triple A this season, but he doesn't miss a lot of bats, and is old (almost 26) for a prospect. Don't expect too much.
- In other Braves' news, B.J. Upton and Dan Uggla both played Thursday. We're glad they've been located, and authorities have notified their families.
- The Indians are still crossing their fingers that SP Justin Masterson (oblique) will return this season, but it sounds like a longshot.
- The Brewers are hoping to get OF Khris Davis (wrist) back in the lineup tonight.
- No more catching this season for Ryan Doumit, even if Joe Mauer doesn't come back from his concussion.
- Don't expect to see OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') back in the Phillies' lineup this weekend.
- Lots of info in this Pirates notebook, including Gerrit Cole's non-innings limit and Jason Grilli's path to reclaiming his closer role. Grilli will start pitching with leads in the seventh and eighth innings, and Mark Melancon's role could be in danger soon.
- The Cardinals expect to have C Yadier Molina back in the lineup tonight after a two-game absence.
- Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (wrist) will take batting practice today, and after that we'll have a better idea of when he'll return. Encarnacion wants to play tonight, but the team might have different ideas. Colby Rasmus (oblique) has a chance to return this weekend as well.
See you back here Monday morning.
