Lucroy still mus approve the trade before it becomes official. Cleveland catchers are last in the league with a -1.2 WAR according to FanGraphs.com, so the addition of Lucroy (2.8 WAR) will help.
Henderson has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. He's still not 100 percent following two surgeries due to Crohn's disease.
Henderson still has a shot at the starting right tackle job if he can get up to playing shape quickly. Jordan Mills appears to be the frontrunner for now.
Friedrich (4-6) pitched six innings, allowing one run, five hits and one walk while striking out two Friday against the Reds. He did not factor in the decision.
The 29-year-old southpaw rebounded from a poor performance last time out with his fifth quality start of the season (14 starts). Friedrich obviously made some adjustments to improve, inducing more ground balls than fly balls for the first time since mid-June. His strikeout total continues to bounce around at a frustrating pace, but he's improved his control to compensate a bit. He draws MLB's second-worst offense in his next start Friday against the Phillies.
He was touched up for a long ball for the first time in six appearances, giving up a solo homer to Brad Miller in the first and a two-run blast to Curt Casali in the third. Eovalidi also turned in his second straight quality start, and despite the loss Saturday, enjoyed a solid July. It was a strong bounce-back month for the 26-year-old right-hander, after a June in which he generated an 0-3 record and 8.65 ERA. He'll look to extend his recent success into August when he takes on the Mets next Thursday.
Easley has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list. He's recovering from a dislocated knee cap that was also broken in three places during the Week 16, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
Easley is arguably the team's best special teams player, but the Bills also have so many decisions to make at wideout that Easley may need to prove his health soon in order to be a serious consideration for the final roster.
