LEADING OFF: Price vs Salazar; Pence plan; Pineda's turn
The Associated Press
A look at what's happening all around the major leagues Friday:
TOP OF THEIR GAME
Tigers left-hander David Price is coming off a complete game victory over the White Sox. He matches up against Cleveland righty Danny Salazar, who had 10 strikeouts in seven-plus innings of a 2-1 win over Baltimore in his last start.
The San Francisco Giants should finally make a decision on whether to put outfielder Hunter Pence on the disabled list. A minor leaguer was ready to fly to New York on Thursday but manager Bruce Bochy said the team decided to hold off for one more day. Pence was injured making a diving catch on June 2.
Michael Pineda makes his first start after 11 days of rest, when the Yankees open a series in Baltimore. New York skipped the right-hander's last outing in order to manage his innings this year. The Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez tries for his first win since May 11.
ON THE MEND
Oakland's Ike Davis is going to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville. He's been out with a strained left quadriceps since May 14. The first baseman is hitting .282 with two homers and 11 RBIs in 103 at-bats.
BACK IN THE SHOW
Signed on Monday by the Philadelphia Phillies, Kevin Correia is set to make his first major league start of the season, against Pittsburgh. Correia pitched for San Francisco's Triple-A team in Sacramento this season, going 0-1 with a 3.58 ERA. He was released on May 29 after exercising an opt-out provision in his contract.
The Baseball Hall of Fame was dedicated at Cooperstown, N.Y., in 1939, and the first induction ceremony was held that day. All 11 living electees were on hand.
