Bryce Harper is out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Mets.

Harper is batting just .133 with a .516 OPS over his last 10 games and will grab a bit of mental and physical rest in the afternoon tilt against the Mets. Chris Heisey is starting in right field and batting seventh for the Nats versus New York lefty Steven Matz.

Rougned Odor's eight-game suspension appeal decision probably won't come until Thursday or Friday.

Odor had the appeal hearing Tuesday, but Jon Morosi of FOX Sports notes that there is "a lot of information being considered" by the people tasked with rendering a ruling. The second baseman was issued the eight-game punishment by Major League Baseball on May 17 for his role in a massive May 15 brawl with the Blue Jays. He could be clearly seen connecting on a punch to Jose Bautista's face. Odor will remain active until the appeal decision is announced.

Jorge Soler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Cardinals.

Soler slugged a two-run homer as part of a three-RBI performance on Tuesday night in St. Louis, but he'll be on the bench at the opening of Wednesday's matinee. Kris Bryant is starting in left field and batting third and Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting sixth versus Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez.

Ian Kinsler (flu) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Phillies.

Kinsler had to be scratched from Tuesday night's game after experiencing flu-like symptoms and he'll remain on the bench for Wednesday's matinee. Mike Aviles is starting at second base and batting eighth versus Philadelphia right-hander Aaron Nola. Cameron Maybin will get another turn at leadoff.

Cesar Hernandez is not in the Phillies' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers.

Hernandez was dropped from the second spot to the seventh spot in the Philadelphia batting order on Tuesday night and went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout. He's slashing just .248/.301/.301 in 43 games this season. Andres Blanco will start at second base and hit seventh Wednesday versus Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez.

Cody Asche (oblique) went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI on Tuesday night at Double-A Reading.

Asche had been held hitless since moving his minor league rehab assignment from High-A Clearwater to Reading on Sunday. The third baseman turned corner outfielder has been on the disabled list this entire season because of a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique. He should be cleared to rejoin the Phillies on June 1, when his 20-day rehab window will officially close, but there's no reason to have him rostered in a standard mixed fantasy league.

Wil Myers (forearm) is not expected to play Wednesday.

Myers experienced some discomfort in his left forearm Monday while picking up a baseball and the Padres want to play it safe so that this doesn't turn into another extended absence. Including a scheduled team off day Thursday, the 25-year-old first baseman can get three straight days of rest. He's slashing just .218/.227/.345 with one walk and 17 strikeouts in 87 at-bats this month.

Yasiel Puig was removed from Tuesday's game due to a lack of hustle.

Puig spent a long time admiring a shot to the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth inning, turning a potential extra-base hit into a single. He did drive in a run with that hard liner and would eventually come around to score, but it was a bad look for a guy who still owns a weak .247/.289/.382 overall batting line this season. "We talk a lot about playing the game the right way," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "For me, mental mistakes, we’re going to live with. But in my opinion, he should have been on second base. It’s something that when we talk about playing the game the right way, we have to be accountable. That was the decision I made."
