Kyle Hendricks cruises through seven strong innings in Cubs' win on Friday

Chicago Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks cruised through 7 innings pitched on Friday, allowing 2 hits, 2 walks, and 1 run while striking out 7 in a 6-2 win over the San Francisco Giants.

What It Means:

Hendricks only mistake was to Gorkys Hernandez in the fourth inning which the Giants' outfielder blasted for a solo home run. The Cubs pitcher was efficient as well, needing only 88 pitches to make through 7 frames and earn his fourth win of the year.

Hendricks now sports a 3.16 ERA, 3.61 xFIP, and 7.3 strikeouts to nine innings rate through 62 2/3 innings pitched this season.

Nationals' Daniel Murphy (knee) to start a rehab assignement on Saturday

Washington Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Saturday.

What It Means:

A definite step forward for Murphy after a series of setbacks this season. The veteran infielder has been out all season with a knee injury that was considered minor but has caused Murphy continued soreness and pain. No word on how long his stint in the minors will be but barring setbacks Murphy will be back in the big leagues in early June.

numberFire's models project Murphy for 12 homers, 47 RBI, 45 runs scored, and a .288 batting average in 349 plate appearances the rest of the season.

David Freitas will not start for Mariners on Friday

Seattle Mariners catcher David Freitas will head back to the bench Friday night against the Minnesota Twins.

What It Means:

Mike Zunino will be back behind the plate tonight when James Paxton takes the mound for Seattle.

We project that the second-year catcher will hit .234 the rest of the way, with two home runs, nine runs, and eight RBI.

Andrew Romine will head back to Mariners' bench on Friday

Seattle Mariners infielder Andrew Romine will not start against the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

What It Means:

Romine started in place of Gordon Beckham on Thursday, but he'll head back to the bench tonight.

Beckham's .167 average is, amazingly, better than Romine's .154 this year. We project Romine to hit .239 the rest of the way, with 2 home runs, 19 runs, and 13 RBI.

Orioles to place Mark Trumbo (knee) on the 10-day DL

Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Mark Trumbo (knee) will be placed on the 10-day DL following Friday's game, per manager Buck Showalter.

What It Means:

Trumbo has arthritis in his right knee and will receive a PRP injection. The veteran slugger will be shut down for 3-to-4 days before resuming baseball activities. He is not expected to be out long. Joey Rickard will see some extra time in the outfield with Trumbo out of action.

Trumbo has batted .309 with 2 homers, 8 RBI, and 10 runs scored in 82 plate appearances this season.
