A.J. Ellis is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Brewers.
He'll get a breather with the early start time. Ramon Hernandez will start behind the plate.
Dee Gordon is not in the Dodgers' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
The slumping shortstop will sit in favor of Nick Punto. Gordon is batting just .167 since his promotion from Triple-A Albuquerque and is hitless over his last seven games.
Andre Ethier is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Brewers.
He'll get the day off against right-hander Wily Peralta. Scott Van Slyke will make the start in right field.
Andrelton Simmons is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Twins.
He's just getting the day off. Ramiro Pena will fill in at shortstop.
Justin Upton is not in the Braves' lineup Wednesday against the Twins.
The Braves have a scheduled off-day on Thursday, so Upton will essentially get two days to recharge his batteries. Jordan Schafer will start in left field.
Brian McCann is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Twins.
He'll take a seat with the day game after the night game. Evan Gattis, who hit a game-tying homer on Tuesday, will start behind the dish.
Clayton Richard (illness) gave up two runs in six innings Tuesday in his second minor league rehab start with Triple-A Tucson.
Richard, out since May 4 with an intestinal virus, gave up five hits and no walks while striking out four. The southpaw threw 65 out of 94 pitches for strikes. It should be enough for the Padres to activate him from the disabled list.
Twins transferred OF Darin Mastroianni from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot for Chris Colabello on the 40-man roster. Mastroianni is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a bone chip on his left ankle and will be sidelined until the second half of the season.
