Player Notes

  • VanMater held out Wednesday due to back spasms
    Josh VanMeter was held out of the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Wednesday due to back spasms.

    Advice: VanMeter was in the club's original lineup, but wound up getting scratched shortly before the game began. As of now, the injury sounds minor and he should be able to avoid a stint on the injured list. Jake Hager started in his place on Wednesday and could see increased action over the next couple of days while VanMeter is sidelined. NBCSportsEDGE.com 29 minutes ago

  • Mike Yastrzemski (hamsting) scratched from lineup
    Mike Yastrzemski was scratched from the Giants lineup on Wednesday due to hamstring tightness.

    Advice: At this stage the severity of the injury -- and whether or not he'll require a trip to the injured list -- remain unclear. Thairo Estrada will start in his place in right field against Zac Gallen and the Diamondbacks on Wednesday night. NBCSportsEDGE.com 40 minutes ago
  • Dodgers place Jimmy Nelson (elbow) on 10-day IL
    Dodgers placed RHP Jimmy Nelson on the 10-day injured list with right-elbow inflammation.

    Advice: It's the third time that Nelson has been on the injured list since the beginning of June, as he also battled forearm inflammation and a left lumbar strain. He has been outstanding when healthy, posting a 1.86 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 44/13 K/BB ratio across 29 innings. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:38 pm

  • Dodgers recall Darien Nunez from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled LHP Darien Nunez from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The 28-year-old southpaw replaced the injured Jimmy Nelson (elbow) in the Dodgers bullpen. Nunez owns a disappointing 6.14 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 8/2 K/BB ratio over 7 1/3 innings with the big league club this season. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm
  • DeSclafani is only expected to miss one start
    Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Wednesday that Anthony DeSclafani (shoulder) is only expected to miss one start.

    Advice: The right-hander landed on the disabled list on Wednesday with right shoulder fatigue. It sounds like it's a mild issue though and he fortunately isn't dealing with any structural damage. Aaron Sanchez is one candidate to make a spot start in his his place. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:13 pm
