Player Notes

  • Swipes bag Tuesday
    Machado went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-0 victory versus Miami.

    Advice: Machado used his legs to help generate San Diego's final run in the eighth inning, hitting a one-out single and stealing second base before coming home on a Donovan Solano double. The single extended Machado's hitting streak to seven games, and he has four doubles along with three RBI and a .320 batting average during that span. However, the third baseman is in the midst of a lengthy homer drought -- he's now gone 22 games since his last long ball and has just five home runs through 223 plate appearances this season.

  • Plays both games in twin bill
    Smith went 1-for-9 with a solo home run in Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Mets.

    Advice: Smith caught all 10 innings during Game 1 of the twin bill, then remained in the lineup as the Dodgers' DH in Game 2. He produced one of the team's three runs in the nightcap with a solo homer to left field. Smith's use as the designated hitter after catching in Game 1 highlights how valuable his bat is to the team, though his opportunities to fill the DH role have been more limited this season with Shohei Ohtani in the fold.

  • Mets activate David Peterson to start Wednesday
    Mets activated LHP David Peterson from the 60-day injured list.

    Advice: Peterson, who is coming off hip surgery, will make his season debut against the Dodgers tonight. He impressed on his rehab assignment, amassing a 1.14 ERA and a 35/3 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings, and he’ll be worth watching if he gets a chance to stick in the Mets rotation. That’s not assured, though. Rotoworld 51 minutes ago
  • Heads back to Triple-A
    The Mets returned Nunez to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.

    Advice: As expected, Nunez will head back to Syracuse one day after he was called up to serve as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Dodgers. Nunez appeared in relief in the Mets' 3-0 loss in the second game of the twin bill, covering two scoreless innings while giving up one hit and one walk and striking out three.

  • Mets send down reliever Josh Walker
    Mets optioned LHP Josh Walker to Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Walker’s two stints with the Mets this season have produced a 2.08 ERA in 8 2/3 innings. He’ll be back. Rotoworld 54 minutes ago
  • ‘Banged-up’ Semien sits for first time since 2022
    A “banged up” Marcus Semien is out of the Rangers lineup Wednesday for the first time since May 12, 2022.

    Advice: Semien has been playing at less than 100 percent after colliding with Adolis García in left field on May 18 and is just 4-for-33 at the plate in eight games since the incident. The Rangers are off Thursday and are hoping that a two-day break will help. Rotoworld 58 minutes ago
  • Sitting against left-hander
    Nimmo is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Southpaw James Paxton is on the hill for the Dodgers, so it will be a day off for the left-handed hitting Nimmo. Tyrone Taylor will patrol left field while Nimmo rests. Rotowire.com 59 minutes ago
  • Cleared to start Friday
    Urena (lower leg) said that he's been cleared to start Friday against the Marlins, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    Advice: Urena departed his most recent start last Friday versus the Twins after being struck in the left foot/ankle area by a comebacker. He checked out fine, though, and isn't expected to have any limitations Friday against one of his former clubs. Urena has been surprisingly solid since sliding into the Texas rotation, holding a 2.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB over 22.2 innings covering four starts. That said, with Nathan Eovaldi returning from the injured list Tuesday and with Jon Gray (groin) potentially set to be activated next week, Urena wouldn't appear to be guaranteed any starts beyond Friday.

  • Nolan Arenado gets scheduled day off
    Nolan Arenado is out of the Cardinals lineup Wednesday in what manager Oli Marmol said was a day off scheduled long ago.

    Advice: It’s apparently very important to note that this is not a reaction to Arenado’s lengthy slump, and last night’s homer didn’t result in a change of heart and putting him into the lineup today. Brendan Donovan is starting at third base, and Matt Carpenter is getting a start at DH. Rotoworld Today, 9:26 am
