The team indicated, however, that it is not yet determined whether Lagares will be activated Saturday or Sunday. Lagares is not due to be in the starting lineup until Sunday, when he will face Jon Lester, Terry Collins said. Lagares went 6-for-18 with a triple and two RBIs with Binghamton.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, who was ejected Thursday night for arguing after the Royals took a long time to ask for a replay review, said he discussed the issue with MLB official Joe Torre Friday and Torre said the league is looking into "cleaning up," the issue. What made it so frustrating for Matheny is that his team had vacated the field and begun to prepare to hit. The Royals had run off the field without arguing initially because, Matheny thought, they were embarrassed that Salvador Perez had stopped running on what looked like a sure double play. Matt Carpenter dropped the ball, but still nearly turned two.

From Jay Paris on-site in San Diego for ESPN.com: Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran will be idle this weekend in San Diego. "He's improving," manager Joe Girardi said. "He's just not where he needs to be.'' Beltran's sore right hamstring had him out Friday against the San Diego Padres. He could be down the next two games, too. "I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't play,'' Girardi said. Beltran walked as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's win over the Rangers. He didn't play Wednesday, one day after getting hurt. "As I've said the last few days this was what worried me that he would have to play the field,'' Girardi said. "If he was DHing, it might be a little bit quicker. But we have to make sure he is OK.''
