Angels: CF Mike Trout was scratched from the lineup and is day-to-day with tightness in his left hamstring. Cubs: Designated OF Matt Szczur for assignment to make room for LHP Rob Zastryzny. Mets: SS Asdrubal Cabrera injured his left thumb while trying to make a diving, backhand stop. The Mets said X-rays were negative and Cabrera will have an MRI exam Sunday. Orioles: LH reliever Zach Britton is on the disabled list with a left forearm strain — the same injury that recently sidelined him for two weeks. Pirates: RHP Jameson Taillon was placed on the 10-day DL with groin discomfort.
JUDGE STAYS LAWSUIT
A federal judge in San Francisco has stayed proceedings in a lawsuit by minor league baseball players alleging they are paid less than minimum wage, a move that allows lawyers for Major League Baseball and its teams to argue before U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
The players sued in February 2014, claiming most earned less than $7,500 annually.
