Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said the club is leaning toward starting Tyler Lyons against the Pirates on Sunday.

Matheny couched it with the caveat "as of right now," suggesting the start is written in pencil and not pen. Lyons pitched decently in Tuesday's no-decision, and the Cards don't really have any better options at the moment. The lefty has made 13 starts over the past three seasons for the Cardinals.

Cubs released RHP Blake Parker.

The move comes just one day after the club designated him for assignment to make room for James Russell on the 40-man roster. Parker had decent numbers in the minors in recent years and should find another club to latch on with.

Nate Jones (elbow) is continuing to progress in his return from last year's Tommy John surgery.

"Knock on wood, I’m coming along pretty strongly and hopefully the rest of the rehab goes just as well," Jones said on Wednesday. "I don’t know what the schedule is mapped out, but I know throw a side here Friday and that’s as far as I know. I know it’s going to change a little bit once I go home to start throwing more breaking balls and stuff like that, which I just started Monday off the mound." Jones is eligible to come off the disabled list on June 4, but the White Sox have been eyeing the All-Star break as a more realistic date. He's still got plenty of hurdles to clear before being activated.

Tim Stauffer (intercostal) has begun light throwing.

The action is the first reported since Stauffer hit the disabled list with a right intercostal strain last week. It's still unclear how long he might be sidelined with the injury.
May 6 - 8:24 PM

Joey Votto was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Pirates for spiking his helmet.

Votto made contact with umpire Chris Conroy while arguing the ejection, which is likely to draw further punishment (perhaps even a suspension). Votto also exchanged words with Pirates starter Gerrit Cole before heading into the visitors clubhouse at PNC Park. It's rare to see such an outburst from the thoughtful 31-year-old first baseman.

Ian Kennedy held the Giants to one run over seven innings in the Padres' lopsided 9-1 win Wednesday.

Giants starter Chris Heston had no answer for the Padres' bats, but Kennedy had no problem silencing the Giants'. The right-hander allowed just six hits without walking a batter, striking out five. Kennedy has rattled off two straight wins after a bumpy return from the disabled list in late April, and he's now 2-1 with a still-unsightly 5.03 ERA. An interleague tilt with the Mariners is on tap for Tuesday.
May 6 - 7:43 PM

Jedd Gyorko did everything in pairs Wednesday, going 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in the Padres' lopsided win over the Giants.

Gyorko had an RBI single in the third inning before smashing a run-scoring double in the eighth. It was a good showing for the embattled second baseman, who has seen his job challenged by Yangervis Solarte and Cory Spangenberg in recent weeks. Gyorko is the most talented hitter of the group, so if he can get right at the plate he should hold onto the gig going forward.
May 6 - 7:34 PM

Chris Heston was pounded by the Padres on Wednesday, allowing 11 hits and five runs over five innings of work in the loss.

Heston was lucky to escape without more damage, as he allowed 14 baserunners on the afternoon. He's now turned in two subpar starts in his last three outings after a stellar beginning to the year. It seems the carriage may be turning back into a pumpkin, but he shouldn't be completely left for dead yet. Tuesday's start at the Astros will be an important one for the 27-year-old.
