    Rangers' Grant Anderson: Optioned to Triple-A
    14m ago

    The Rangers optioned Anderson to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    Anderson hasn't found much success in the majors since joining the Rangers in May, posting a 9.53 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through 17 innings. He'll now head back to Triple-A in order to right the ship, and Brock Burke (hand) will come off the injured list to fill the opening in Texas' bullpen.

    Rangers' Brock Burke: Reinstated from IL
    17m ago

    The Rangers reinstated Burke (hand) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Burke has been on the injured list since mid-April with a broken right (non-throwing) hand. He began a rehab assignment May 16, posting a 2.45 ERA and 1.09 WHIP through 11 innings across nine appearances -- seven of which came in Triple-A. The left-hander will presumably slide into a middle relief role with the Rangers, and his return will push Grant Anderson back to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Diamondbacks' Nate Savino: Sticking around in rookie ball
    21m ago

    Single-A Visalia activated Savino (shoulder) from the 7-day injured list and assigned him to the rookie-level Arizona Complex League on May 23.

    Savino had already made four rehab appearances in the ACL before being activated. After he missed the entire 2023 season while recovering from shoulder surgery, Savino will get some extended time in rookie ball to hone his control before he reports to a full-season affiliate. Through eight appearances (six starts) in the ACL thus far, Savino has posted an 0.69 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 13 innings.

    Newman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    He'll sit for the second day in a row and looks set to see a steep reduction in playing time moving forward after the Diamondbacks brought back top shortstop Geraldo Perdomo from the injured list Tuesday. Newman joined the Diamondbacks in the second week of the season following Perdomo's placement on the IL and hit .266 with two home runs and two stolen bases over 49 games.

    Brewers' Trevor Megill: Records 11th save
    1h ago

    Megill earned the save Wednesday in a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays, working around a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    After Toronto logged three straight hits off Hoby Milner to start the ninth, the Brewers turned to Megill to shut the door. He'd get off to a shaky start, allowing two inherited runs to score after a hit and a walk, though he'd ultimately settle in and close out the 5-3 victory. The 30-year-old Megill has now converted Milwaukee's last three save chances while allowing just one earned run in his last seven appearances. Megill's converted 11 of 12 save opportunities this year while working to a 1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 25:5 K:BB across 19 innings.

    Brewers' Tobias Myers: Another strong outing Wednesday
    1h ago

    Myers (3-2) earned the win Wednesday over the Blue Jays, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four.

    A Davis Schneider homer in the first inning accounted for all the damage against Myers on Wednesday. The rookie right-hander has made two starts since he was recalled from Triple-A in late May, allowing just one run on four hits over 14 innings. The 25-year-old Myers has certainly made a case to stick in the Brewers rotation with Joe Ross (back), Robert Gasser (elbow), Jakob Junis (shoulder) and DL Hall (knee) all sidelined. He's currently lined up to face the Angels at home in his next outing.

    Torrens is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

    Torrens will take a seat for the second day in a row after closing out the weekend with his third consecutive start, but the 28-year-old journeyman has performed well enough since joining the team May 31 to stick around with the big club over fellow backstop Tomas Nido, who was designated for assignment Tuesday. Francisco Alvarez came off the 10-day injured list Tuesday and should see the bulk of the starts at catcher moving forward, even though Torrens has produced three extra-base hits through his first 18 plate appearances with the Mets.

    Hedges will start at catcher and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    With the lefty-hitting Bo Naylor hitting the bench with southpaw Nick Lodolo taking the hill for the Reds, Hedges will get a turn behind the plate. Hedges will be making his 19th start of the season and has provided most of his value on the defensive end, as he enters Wednesday's contest with an ugly .130/.158/.204 slash line.

    Tellez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Though he'll take a seat against a right-hander (Sonny Gray), the lefty-hitting Tellez seems to have a firmer grasp on a strong-side platoon role these days while he's begun to heat up at the plate. Over his last six games, Tellez has gone 9-for-19 with a home run, three doubles, two walks, seven RBI and three runs.

    Dalbec will start at first base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Dalbec will stay in the lineup for the fourth time in five games, making his second start at first base during that stretch while the lefty-hitting Dominic Smith hits the bench against Phillies southpaw Cristopher Sanchez. Though Dalbec had also recently picked up starts at third base and in right field, he likely won't see many more opportunities at those positions moving forward after Masataka Yoshida returned from the injured list Tuesday and after Tyler O'Neill (knee) rejoined the lineup Wednesday following a three-game absence. Instead, Dalbec looks like he'll be stuck in the short side of a platoon with Smith.

    Meneses had been on the bench for each of the Nationals' previous three games, but he'll get the first opportunity to enter the lineup in place of Joey Gallo (hamstring), who landed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. After turning in a .722 OPS in his first full season in the big leagues in 2023, Meneses has taken a big step back thus far in 2024, slashing just .232/.292/.296 with a miniscule .064 ISO across 226 plate appearances.

  • LaMonte Wade SF 1B
    Giants' LaMonte Wade: Aiming for return next Thursday
    7h ago

    Wade (hamstring) said Wednesday that he's pushing hard for a return from the 10-day injured list for the Giants' matchup with the Cardinals on June 20 at Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Ala., Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    When he was placed on the IL on May 28 with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain, Wade was projected to miss four weeks, but the veteran first baseman took batting practice Tuesday and fielded grounders and started some light running Wednesday as he aims to beat his estimated return timeline by one week. Wade acknowledged that if he's able to return for MLB's June 20 Negro Leagues tribute game, he would likely be relegated to designated-hitter duties. The Giants will presumably continue to monitor Wade's progress as he ramps up over the next week before determining if a June 20 return is feasible. The 30-year-old hadn't been a premium source of counting stats prior to being deactivated due to the injury, but he was hitting an impressive .333 while getting on base at a .470 clip through his first 52 games of the season.

Biggio struggled in 130 plate appearances for the Blue Jays this season with a .200/.323/.291 slash line and 32.3 percent strikeout rate, but he could see semi-regular playing time at the hot corner while Max Muncy (oblique) is sidelined.

    Hoerner (hand) will start at second base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Though Hoerner was diagnosed with a small fracture in his right hand over the weekend, he avoided a stint on the injured list and will make his return to the lineup after missing only four starts. Before his recent absence, Hoerner had gone 0-for-8 over his last three starts, and it may take a bit for him to regain full strength in his hand and recapture the exit velocities he had provided prior to suffering the injury. Fantasy managers in leagues with daily lineup moves may be best served leaving Hoerner on the bench until he resumes producing at a level that warrants keeping him active.

    Gimenez went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Reds.

    Gimenez has gone 4-for-26 (.154) over six games in June, and he hasn't drawn a walk in that span. The second baseman has maintained fairly steady playing time, but he's hit lower in the order with the Guardians facing a southpaw in three of their last four games. That may be a factor in his quiet stretch, though he's still doing well overall with a .263/.318/.363 slash line, four home runs, 10 steals, 33 RBI and 35 runs scored across 60 contests.

    Wednesday's absence is just Suarez's fourth from the lineup this season, but it appears he'll sit more often going forward due to his .197/.263/.312 slash line through 66 games. Lovullo didn't specify how the playing time will be split, so it's possible Suarez still sees the majority of the action at the hot corner. Regardless, rhe 32-year-old should no longer be considered the Diamondbacks' everyday third baseman, at least for the time being.

Though his .636 OPS thus far in his MLB career isn't anything special, the Tigers likely aren't ready to pull the plug on Malloy as an everyday player just yet.

    Eugenio Suarez has worked as Arizona's everyday third baseman through the first two-plus months of the campaign, but he's struggled to a .575 OPS in 262 plate appearances. Wednesday's start is just Alexander's third at the hot corner this season, and his .279/.345/.403 slash line could be enough to seize a regular role. Lovullo wasn't clear how playing time will be split, but Suarez seems likely to still see at least fairly regular action.

    Lopez (6-6) earned the win Wednesday over Colorado, allowing two runs on five hits over five innings. He struck out five.

    It was an encouraging outing for Lopez after he allowed seven runs and six walks in a loss to the Yankees in his last start. The right-hander notably didn't allow a free pass Wednesday. Overall, it's been an inconsistent first quarter of the season for Lopez -- his ERA sits at 5.33 with a 1.21 WHIP and 84:17 K:BB across 14 starts (76 innings). The 28-year-old Lopez is currently lined up to face the Rays at home early next week in his next outing.

    Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Next rehab start set
    2h ago

    Cole (elbow) will make a third rehab a start Friday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    The right-hander threw 57 pitches over 4.2 inning during his second rehab outing Sunday, and he'll move up to the Triple-A level as he continues building up his workload. Manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday, "we'll see" when asked if it will be Cole's final rehab start, so it's possible he's cleared to make his season debut for the Yankees next week.

    Rangers' Grant Anderson: Optioned to Triple-A
    14m ago

    The Rangers optioned Anderson to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    Anderson hasn't found much success in the majors since joining the Rangers in May, posting a 9.53 ERA and 1.76 WHIP through 17 innings. He'll now head back to Triple-A in order to right the ship, and Brock Burke (hand) will come off the injured list to fill the opening in Texas' bullpen.

    Rangers' Brock Burke: Reinstated from IL
    17m ago

    The Rangers reinstated Burke (hand) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Burke has been on the injured list since mid-April with a broken right (non-throwing) hand. He began a rehab assignment May 16, posting a 2.45 ERA and 1.09 WHIP through 11 innings across nine appearances -- seven of which came in Triple-A. The left-hander will presumably slide into a middle relief role with the Rangers, and his return will push Grant Anderson back to Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Trevor Megill MIL RP
    Brewers' Trevor Megill: Records 11th save
    1h ago

    Megill earned the save Wednesday in a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays, working around a hit and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    After Toronto logged three straight hits off Hoby Milner to start the ninth, the Brewers turned to Megill to shut the door. He'd get off to a shaky start, allowing two inherited runs to score after a hit and a walk, though he'd ultimately settle in and close out the 5-3 victory. The 30-year-old Megill has now converted Milwaukee's last three save chances while allowing just one earned run in his last seven appearances. Megill's converted 11 of 12 save opportunities this year while working to a 1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 25:5 K:BB across 19 innings.

    Mariners' Andres Munoz: Receives injection for back
    2h ago

    Munoz had an MRI and bone scan on his back come back clean, but he received an injection Tuesday to address the lingering soreness, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    The right-hander last pitched Sunday in Kansas City and has made just two appearances in June while battling through the back issue. Munoz hasn't officially been declared unavailable, but the Mariners may try to stay away from him for another day or two as he recovers.

    White Sox's Steven Wilson: Back from injured list
    3h ago

    The White Sox reinstated Wilson (back) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday.

    The right-hander landed on the shelf in late May with a back strain but is ready to rejoin Chicago after making two rehab appearances with Triple-A Charlotte. Wilson has been a reliable high-leverage option for manager Pedro Grifol this year with six holds and a 2.84 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 19:14 K:BB across 19 innings.

    White Sox's Tim Hill: Designated for assignment
    3h ago

    The White Sox designated Hill for assignment Wednesday.

    The left-hander joined Chicago on a one-year contract during the offseason, but he struggled in 27 outings with a 5.87 ERA, 2.22 WHIP and 13:10 K:BB over 23 innings. Assuming he clears waivers, Hill could opt for free agency rather than accepting an assignment to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    The lefty-hitting Carpenter will hit the bench Wednesday while the Pirates bring southpaw Bailey Falter to the hill. With Carpenter taking a seat, Alec Burleson will get a day out of the outfield and serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter while Dylan Carlson steps in as St. Louis' starting right fielder.

  • Masataka Yoshida BOS DH
    Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: Hitting bench Wednesday
    4h ago

    Yoshida is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Yoshida returned from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and started at designated hitter in Boston's 4-1 loss, going 0-for-2 with a walk. Though he should serve as Boston's primary DH now that he's healthy again, Yoshida will give way to Tyler O'Neill on Wednesday. O'Neill missed the Red Sox's previous three games and is being eased back into the lineup in a non-defensive role, but he should eventually see regular starts in the corner outfield to keep the DH spot open for Yoshida.

    Padres' David Peralta: On bench again Wednesday
    6h ago

    Peralta is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

    Manny Machado remains limited to designated-hitter duties after missing out on four straight starts last week due to a hip flexor strain, so the Padres won't have room in the lineup for Peralta for the third contest in a row. Once Machado is cleared to play regularly at third base again, Peralta will likely form a platoon at designated hitter with Donovan Solano.

    Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Mashes 16th homer
    6h ago

    Stanton went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 10-1 win against Kansas City.

    Stanton produced an RBI on a fielder's choice in the first inning and added a 446-foot solo blast in the seventh. It was a positive bounce-back after the slugger went 0-for-14 with seven strikeouts during the weekend's three-game series versus the Dodgers. Stanton's .229 batting average on the season isn't ideal, but he's tied for ninth in the league with 16 homers and has added 38 RBI along with 29 runs through 245 plate appearances.

    Turner is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Turner will head to the bench for the second time in the series, opening up the designated-hitter spot for Daniel Vogelbach in the finale. Though he's begun to heat up in June with a .400 on-base percentage and .407 slugging percentage, Turner is still maintaining a .676 OPS on the season, the worst mark of his career since he became an everyday player in the big leagues.
