Martin Prado went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.
Prado had just two hits in his previous 20 at-bats coming into the game. The third baseman didn't cross the plate, as the scuffling Diamondbacks' offense registered only two solo home runs on the day, but he's still scored 10 runs through the team's first 18 games.
Anthony Recker went 2-for-4 with his second home run of the season in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks.
In for Travis d'Arnaud, Recker made the most of his spot start. He took Brandon McCarthy deep for a solo home run to start the scoring, and he later added a double off the right-hander. He's got two homers and four RBI through 14 at-bats to start the year.
Chase Headley is not in the Padres' lineup Wednesday due to a right biceps strain.
It's being called a mild strain, and the third baseman is day-to-day. It's unclear when he sustained the injury. First baseman Yonder Alonso was taking ground balls at third during batting practice before Wednesday's game, so he may see some time at the hot corner in a pinch if Headley misses any more time.
Brandon McCarthy allowed three runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Wednesday.
At least McCarthy kept the opposition under five runs this time. The right-hander is now 0-3 with a 7.11 ERA and 1.42 WHIP through four starts, an extension of his team's struggles to start the year. Maybe his fortune will turn Tuesday when the Diamondbacks visit the Cubs.
Nate Jones (back) is still not ready for baseball activity.
Jones made just one appearance before going on the disabled list with a lower back injury. There's still no timetable for his return to the mound.
Joe Saunders felt some renewed pain in his left ankle during a bullpen session on Wednesday.
He threw a successful bullpen on Monday, but Wednesday's didn't go so well. He'll take a few days off from throwing before testing the ankle out again. It may compromise his ability to be back with the Rangers by the end of the month, but he shouldn't be too far behind the original timetable.
Angels placed OF Kole Calhoun on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle.
Calhoun rolled the ankle in the 11th inning of Tuesday's game, and it was immediately clear he was headed for a DL stint. Calhoun was on crutches in the clubhouse after the game, saying the ankle "hurt real bad." Hopefully it's just a 15-day thing and won't require a longer stay. Brennan Boesch was recalled to take his roster spot.
Angels recalled OF Brennan Boesch from Triple-A Salt Lake.
The Angels are piecing together an outfield with Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun on the disabled list. Boesch had two home runs and nine RBI through the first 13 games with Salt Lake and will be a bench bat for the Angels.
