    Robinson Chirinos (hand) is not in the Rangers' starting lineup Wednesday versus the White Sox.

  • T.J. McFarland recalled from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: McFarland has given up six runs -- two earned -- over five relief appearances with the O's this season. He'll provide the bullpen with some length.

  • Denard Span (knee) returns to Nats' lineup
    Denard Span (knee) is back in the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Span hadn't played since leaving Sunday's game with renewed discomfort in his right knee, but he's feeling ready to give it a go. The outfielder is batting .314/.356/.504 for the Nats this season.
    Today, 12:36 pm
  • Drew Pomeranz activated from disabled list
    Athletics activated LHP Drew Pomeranz from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Pomeranz was cleared to return after getting through a rehab appearance with no issues. The A's will use him in relief for now, though it's certainly possible that he'll get another shot to start at some point.
    Today, 12:08 pm
  • Salvador Perez (head) not in lineup Wednesday
    Salvador Perez (head) is not in the Royals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Perez passed concussion tests after leaving Tuesday's game following a foul tip to the mask, but he has a bit of a headache Wednesday. The Royals will hope he's ready to go on Thursday. Drew Butera is filling in behind the dish.
    Today, 12:01 pm
  • Hunter Pence nursing minor wrist issue
    Hunter Pence is not in Wednesday's lineup due to a minor left wrist injury.

    Advice: You always have to worry a bit when it's a wrist injury, but it seems the Giants are convinced this is a minor issue. The Giants are off Thursday, so they'll shoot for Pence to be back in there Friday.
    Today, 11:55 am
  • Danny Muno optioned to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF Danny Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Muno has one hit in 15 at-bats over a couple stints with the big club this season. He'll return to a .280/.354/.400 line at Las Vegas.

  • Shane Peterson recalled from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled 1B/OF Shane Peterson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Peterson has hit .320/.387/.523 with seven homers and 27 RBI at hitter-friendly Colorado Springs this season. He'll give the club some outfield depth with Khris Davis (knee) out.
    Today, 6:27 am
  • Rosenthal: Red Sox acquire De Aza from O's
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

    Advice: There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

  • Montgomery takes no-decision in his MLB debut
    Mike Montgomery, making his major league debut, held the Yankees to one run in six innings, leaving with a no-decision as the Mariners lost in 11 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Montgomery looked solid, limiting the Yankees to four hits and two walks while striking out four. The only run came across in the third inning on a Mark Teixeira double. The Mariners may let him start again. If they do, Montgomery would be on track to take on the Rays at home on Sunday.

  • Melancon keeps rolling, picks up 15th save
    Mark Melancon held the Giants at bay with a scoreless ninth inning, grabbing his 15th save in Tuesday's 7-4 win.

    Advice: Melancon allowed a leadoff single to Hunter Pence, but got a pair of ground outs and a pop-up to close out the game with ease. The right-hander continues to get the job done, having now successfully converted 15 of 16 save chances with a 2.52 ERA and a 13/5 K/BB ratio in 25 innings.
    Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Kemp strikes out three times, but Padres win
    Matt Kemp struck out three times in four at-bats Tuesday, but the Padres took down the Mets anyway.

    Advice: Kemp's OPS is now below .600 following the arduous night. He has only two extra-base hits in 99 plate appearances dating back to May 7. His triple-slash line is a poor .242/.277/.322 with one home run and 26 RBI.

  • Forsythe ties career-high with his 6th homer
    Logan Forsythe went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a two-run home run as the Rays beat the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Forsythe put the Rays on the board in the first inning, hitting a two-run home run off of C.J. Wilson. It's his sixth of the season, matching his career-high set in each of the last three seasons. With four months of the 2015 season left, it's safe to say he'll end up setting a new career-best. Forsythe is also hitting .288/.374/.475 with 24 RBI and 22 runs scored.
    Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Hosmer collects RBI single in loss to Indians
    Eric Hosmer had an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Hosmer's RBI single in the bottom of the third inning gave the Royals a brief lead, but it was the only run they would be able to push across against Indians starter Carlos Carrasco. Hosmer now has 32 RBI to put him among the league leaders in the AL. The first baseman owns a .301/.376/.500 line overall.
    Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Guthrie holds Tribe to one run in no-decision
    Jeremy Guthrie allowed just one run on two hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Aside from a Brandon Moss solo home run, Guthrie was nearly perfect on the evening. It was quite a contrast to his last start in which he allowed 11 runs over an inning-plus of work. The right-hander walked one and struck out one over his 5 2/3 innings Tuesday, but his counterpart, Carlos Carrasco, was equally as strong to deny Guthrie of a decision. He'll attempt to get back in the win column Sunday against the Rangers.
    Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Gonzalez homers, walks as Dodgers beat COL
    Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run, helping the Dodgers take the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: Gonzalez extended the Dodgers' lead to 4-0 with a third-inning two-run home run off of David Hale. The first baseman has done nothing but hit all season long, now standing with a remarkable .332/.411/.610 triple-slash line along with 11 home runs and 38 RBI.
    Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Guerrero hits clutch grand slam vs. Rockies
    Alex Guerrero pinch-hit and blasted a two-strike, two-out grand slam in the ninth inning to erase a three-run deficit as the Dodgers took down the Rockies in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It's hard to come up any bigger than that. Though it is no surprise coming from Guerrero, as he has been hitting all season long. The salami was his 10th homer of the season. The 28-year-old also has 25 RBI and a .296/.327/.684 triple-slash line in 100 plate appearances.
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Gattis homers, has three RBI in win over O's
    Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Astros' 6-4 victory on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gattis blasted a three-run shot off Orioles starter Mike Wright in the third inning, his 12th home run of the season. The designated hitter is sixth in the AL in home runs and seventh in the league with 36 RBI. After a slow start, Gattis has proven to be what the Astros hoped they were getting when they traded for him this past winter.
    Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Flaherty has two-run triple in loss to Astros
    Ryan Flaherty hit a two-run triple and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Flaherty's triple was part of a four-run second inning against Astros starter Collin McHugh. The triple, his second of the year, was Flaherty's only hit in three at-bats. Flaherty is hitting .276/.364/.517 in a part-time role this year.
