Masahiro Tanaka walks off the mound with 7 1/3 scoreless innings. And it's probably a lock Austin Romine will catch him, moving forward.

Marlins RF Giancarlo Stanton knows how to end a home run drought with style. This first-inning shot was his first since May 8, his 12th of the season and his longest of the year.

Goodness gracious. Bryce Harper just incinerated the baseball, sending it into the third deck at Nats Park for a two-run jack to give Washington a 5-1 lead over San Diego. Harper's 15 homers are most in the NL.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Maddon indicated he will continue to platoon Kyle Schwarber until he gets going against right handed pitching. Schwarber has been mired in a season long slump and won't start Friday (Wood) or Sunday (Kershaw) against the Dodgers when they pitch two lefties.

Rangers P A.J. Griffin left Friday night's start vs. the Blue Jays in the second inning with a left intercostal strain.

ESPN Stats and Information

The Giants activated OF Aaron Hill (strained right forearm) from the 10-day DL on Friday and optioned P Steven Okert to Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding roster move.

Albert Pujols can homer in his 38th different ballpark this weekend in Miami. If he does, it will tie Carlos Beltrán for the 2nd-most different ballparks with a HR by active players.

Brock Holt will be shut down from baseball activity "for the foreseeable future," according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. Holt, who is dealing with vertigo and has a concussion history, was seen Thursday by specialist Micky Collins at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. With Holt's symptoms recurring, Red Sox will follow Collins' recommendations.

Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen is batting sixth on Friday vs. the Mets. It's the first time in his career that he's hit any lower than cleanup. The veteran has just 11 hits in his last 70 at-bats, dropping his batting average to .203.

Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez (groin) is not in Friday's lineup vs. the Reds. Andres Blanco will start in his place and bat second against Tim Adleman.

Red Sox continue to be cautious with Dustin Pedroia's left knee given wet conditions at Fenway. He's available to play tonight, but manager John Farrell prefers to stay away.

ESPN Staff  

The Dodgers claimed 1B Mike Freeman and P Chris Heston off waivers from the Mariners. Los Angeles also transferred LF Andrew Toles (torn ACL) and P Scott Kazmir (hip) from the 10-day DL to the 60-day DL.

Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso remains out of Friday's lineup vs. the Yankees after being hit on the right wrist by a pitch this past Tuesday. Ryon Healy will start at 1B and Mark Canha will serve as the DH against Masahiro Tanaka.
