Oakland's Kendall Graveman dealing with shoulder soreness again

Oakland Athletics pitcher Kendall Graveman was scratched from Friday's start versus the New York Yankees due to right shoulder soreness.

What It Means:

Graveman hasn't officially been placed on the disabled list yet, but that's the expectation after he was skipped over for his scheduled start on Friday. The 26-year-old right-hander was already on the DL last month with a strained shoulder.

Graveman owns a 3.83 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 16.5 strikeout percentage in 47 innings this season. He's gone 2-2 across eight starts.

Yonder Alonso (wrist) still unavailable for Athletics

Oakland Athletics first baseman Yonder Alonso (wrist) remains out of the lineup on Friday against the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

Ryon Healy is starting at first base for Oakland while Mark Canha handles DH work versus right-hander Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees. They're hitting fifth and eighth in the Athletics' order, respectively. Alonso remains sore after taking a pitch to his right wrist Tuesday. That's in addition to a sore knee that already limited him to one game over the last week.

Alonso has had a strong start to the season, slashing .275/.379/.642 with a .419 wOBA through 39 games (140 plate appearances). He's also cranked 13 taters with 19 runs scored and 30 RBI's.

Yankees not starting Gary Sanchez behind the plate versus Oakland

New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is not starting in Friday's matchup with the Oakland Athletics.

What It Means:

Austin Romine will be on squatting duties in place of Sanchez, who appears to just be receiving the day off. Romine will bat ninth versus left-hander Sean Manaea and the Athletics.

Sanchez is hitting .266/.356/.430 with four home runs and 11 RBI's in 21 games (90 plate appearances) this season.

Red Sox holding Dustin Pedroia (knee) out Friday

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not in Friday's lineup versus the Seattle Mariners.

What It Means:

Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and hitting sixth versus Mariners right-hander Yovani Gallardo. The Red Sox are likely just taking a conservative approach after Pedroia left early on Thursday with a sore left knee.

Pedroia is slashing .288/.366/.374 with a .326 wOBA in 188 plate appearances this season.

Nationals resting Daniel Murphy, Ryan Zimmerman on Friday night

Washington Nationals infielders Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman are absent from Friday's lineup against the San Diego Padres.

What It Means:

The pair is simply getting a day off. Adam Lind will start at first base for Washington while Wilmer Difo covers second. They will hit fifth and eighth, respectively, versus Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo.

numberFire's MLB Team Power Rankings say the Nationals are the sixth-best team in all of baseball.
