  • Mark Trumbo goes hitless in loss to D'Backs
    Mark Trumbo had a rough day at the dish against his former club on Wednesday, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: It was a tough afternoon for most M's hitters against Patrick Corbin, though Trumbo's ineptitude stood out. He's now hitting just .245/.284/.424 on the season with 12 homers and 36 RBI. 28 minutes ago
  • Encarnacion scratched with a jammed finger
    Edwin Encarnacion has been scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday with a jammed finger.

  • Rizzo hits two-run shot in win vs. Rockies
    Anthony Rizzo cranked a two-run homer in the Cubs' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his first home run since July 7. Rizzo has been in an offensive rut, but he still owns a shiny .279/.393/.500 batting line on the season. And he's now up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI in 99 games. Today, 2:02 pm
  • Angels option Daniel Robertson to AAA
    Angels optioned OF Daniel Robertson to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Red Sox recalled OF Jackie Bradley from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He'll handle center field while Mookie Betts (concussion) is on the shelf. Bradley has struggled in his time in the majors but has batted .305/.382/.472 with nine homers and four steals at Pawtucket this season. Today, 12:49 pm

    White Sox placed INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

    15-Day DL
  • Gregory Polanco exits with knee discomfort
    Gregory Polanco departed Wednesday's game versus the Twins due to left knee discomfort.

    Advice: He didn't appear to suffer the injury on one play, although it's worth noting that he had an issue with the same knee last month after banging into the outfield wall. More should be known on Polanco after Wednesday's game. Today, 11:57 am
  • Mets 'have their sights clearly on a big bat'
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets "have their sights clearly on a big bat."

    Advice: Heyman lists Justin Upton, Carlos Gonzalez, Carlos Gomez, Gerardo Parra and Jay Bruce as possibilities that they're considering. He adds that the Reds at one point were showing interest in Zack Wheeler (elbow) in a potential trade for Bruce. It was Heyman who reported over the weekend that the Mets were unwilling to meet the Padres' asking price for Upton, but it sounds like the two sides haven't given up on getting something done. Today, 11:48 am
  • Buxton (thumb) to play simulated games soon
    Byron Buxton (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Thursday before then beginning to play in simulated games at the Twins' spring training complex.

    Advice: It's unclear how many sim games he'll need, but if they go well Buxton will then be cleared for a rehab assignment. There had been some talk that the young outfielder could be out until as long as late August, but it's looking like it will definitely be sooner than that if he can avoid a setback. Today, 9:52 am
    15-Day DL
  • Mike Baxter designated for assignment
    Cubs designated OF Mike Baxter for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Ben Rowen. Baxter has hit .246/.348/.263 in 46 games with the big club this season. Today, 9:13 am
    Not Active
  • Corey Dickerson sitting out on Wednesday
    Corey Dickerson is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's on the bench with the Cubs throwing lefty Jon Lester. Drew Stubbs is handling left field in Dickerson's place. Today, 9:05 am
  • Springer (wrist) to be examined in two weeks
    George Springer will be examined within the next two weeks to see how his fractured right wrist is healing.

    Advice: Springer has already missed four weeks of action and it sounds like he might be out longer than the six-week timetable that was given. The outfielder has been shagging flyballs and staying active, but he's "not doing anything really with his right hand," according to Astros manager A.J. Hinch. Today, 7:22 am
    15-Day DL
  • Kevin Kiermaier (eye) returns to action
    Kevin Kiermaier (eye) went hitless but had a sac fly in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

  • Mets ink Vince Belnome to minors deal
    Mets signed INF Vince Belnome to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Belnome was released by the Rays last week after hitting just .169/.293/.225 for Triple-A Durham. The 27-year-old is organizational depth. Today, 5:41 am

  • Gardner, Yankees hang 21 runs on Rangers
    Brett Gardner and his Yankees teammates took it to the Rangers on Tuesday, with the outfielder going 3-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and five runs scored in the 21-5 rout.

    Advice: Gardner walked three times to go with his three hits, reaching base in six of his seven plate appearances on the night. The 31-year-old scored runs in the second, third, fourth and sixth innings before adding a two-run homer for good measure in the ninth. Gardner is batting .297/.379/.471 with 11 homers, 46 RBI, 15 steals and 72 runs scored, second-most in the American League. Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Inciarte homers as D'Backs beat the Mariners
    Ender Inciarte had an RBI single and a solo home run in five at-bats Tuesday as the Diamondbacks ousted the Mariners.

    Advice: Inciarte drilled a solo home run to right field off of Hisashi Iwakuma in the fifth inning, extending the Diamondbacks' lead to 3-1. In the eighth, he hit an RBI single to make it an 8-3 game. Inciarte has been swinging a hot bat since coming off of the disabled list, batting .348 (16-for-46) in 11 games. Overall, he carries a .296/.323/.397 line with three home runs, 26 RBI, 41 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Zunino hits 1st homer of July, Mariners lose
    Mike Zunino went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Zunino cut into the Diamondbacks' 2-0 lead with a solo home run off of Zack Godley in the third inning, registering his first round-tripper in the month of July. He's hitting a meager .181/.240/.319 with 10 home runs and 26 RBI. Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Hicks drives in three runs in loss to Pirates
    Aaron Hicks went 2-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Rather than one big hit, Hicks drove in runs in three different innings in the loss. That included an RBI triple in the sixth inning. Since being activated from the disabled list on July 3, Hicks is hitting .323 (21-for-65) with three homers, 14 RBI and 12 runs scored. Still just 25, Hicks may finally be delivering on some of the promise he showed as a prospect. Yesterday, 9:10 pm
