Kenley Jansen (heart) feels "great", hoping to return next week

Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Kenley Jansen feels "great." He's hoping to return early next week, far ahead of initial expectations.

What It Means:

Jansen was placed on the 10-day disabled list with an irregular heartbeat and given a four-to-six week timeline to return. It looks like he could be back well in advance of that, which would be a welcome relief for a Dodgers' team that is cycling through pitchers in an effort to replace the All-Star.

In 2018, Jansen has a 2.15 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, 28.4% K%, and 32 saves.

Cubs-Pirates expected to start at 8:50 PM ET on Friday

Friday's game between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates is expected to start at 8:50 pm ET.

What It Means:

Rain is clearing out after a nearly 2-hour delay. Skies in Pittsburgh are expected to be clear the rest of the night, leaving a solid chance the teams get the game in on Friday.

Our models give the Cubs a 51.5% chance of winning Friday's game.

Marlins' Jose Urena to appeal his six-game suspension

Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena plans to appeal the six-game suspension he received for hitting Ronald Acuna with a pitch on Wednesday.

What It Means:

It seems unlikely that he will win his appeal. Acuna, who had hit a home run in seven of eight games at the time of the incident, was hit with the first pitch of the game. Urena still insists that it was unintentional.

We project Urena to have a 4.54 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, with 32 K, 15 BB, and 6 home runs allowed in his remaining starts this season.

Martin Maldonado starting for Astros on Friday night

Houston Astros catcher Martin Maldonado is in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

What It Means:

Max Stassi was behind the plate for Houston's last game, going 0-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Maldonado will take his place behind the plate tonight.

We project Maldonado to score 6.6 FanDuel points in tonight's contest.

Astros' Tony Kemp not starting on Friday night

Houston Astros infielder/outfielder Tony Kemp is not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

What It Means:

George Springer was activated from the disabled list earlier today. He'll take his regular spot in the lineup, which leaves no room for Kemp tonight.

We project Kemp to hit .266 with 1 home run, 10 runs, and 7 RBI in his remaining plate appearances this season.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
