Josh Reddick is not in the Athletics' starting lineup Thursday against the Giants.
He'll ride the pine with left-hander Madison Bumgarner getting the start for San Francisco. Reddick has gone 1-for-9 in two games since making his return from a fractured thumb. Jake Smolinski will start in right field and bat sixth in Thursday's series finale.
Mariners recalled C Mike Zunino from Triple-A Tacoma.
He's filling in for Steve Clevenger, who is out indefinitely with a broken hand. Zunino began this year in the minor leagues after hitting just .174 with 132 strikeouts in 350 at-bats for the Mariners last season. He's posted some impressive numbers at Triple-A this year but that certainly doesn't guarantee success at the major league level.
Mariners placed C Steve Clevenger on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right hand.
Clevenger suffered the injury during Wednesday night's loss to Pittsburgh. Mike Zunino was called up from Triple-A to take Clevenger's spot on the active roster. Clevenger was scheduled to meet with a hand specialist on Thursday. The team is still determining a timetable for his return.
Omar Infante will report to Rookie-level Danville "to get his legs back under him."
Infante hasn't played in a game since June 6, so he'll need a few days to shake off the rust. After that, he'll settle in at Triple-A Gwinnett. The veteran opened 2016 as the Royals' starting second baseman but was quickly passed over in favor of newcomer Whit Merrifield. He inked a minor league deal with Atlanta on Thursday after the Royals released him earlier this month.
Kenta Maeda pitched six innings of one-run ball in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.
It's the eighth time in 16 starts that Maeda has allowed one or no runs. He finishes June with a 2.52 ERA after coming in at 1.41 in April and 5.04 in May.
Zach Davies gave up six runs in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Dodgers.
Davies gave up three homers at Miller Park today. It's far from the ideal place for him to pitch, given that he's neither a groundball pitcher nor a huge strikeout guy, but he has been more effective there than on the road this year, even though nine of the 12 homers he's allowed have come in Milwaukee. He's 5-4 with a 4.22 ERA.
Clayton Kershaw has been diagnosed with mild disc herniation in his lower back.
The Dodgers say he will not require surgery, though the team has yet to announce a timetable for his return. Los Angeles moved quickly to find his replacement, acquiring Bud Norris in a trade with Atlanta on Thursday. With Kershaw out of commission, Jake Arrieta could be in the driver's seat to start the All-Star Game in San Diego in a couple of weeks.
Trayce Thompson went 2-for-5 and hit his 12th homer Thursday against the Brewers.
Thompson was in a 5-for-48 slump before the Brewers got to Milwaukee, but he's collected four hits the last three days. With Yasiel Puig back, Thompson needs to pick it back up if he expects to start the majority of the time. He could fall back into a platoon role.
