Colby Rasmus (infection) was hospitalized overnight into Tuesday.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Rasmus is "actually improved," but he also sounded less certain that the outfielder would be ready to leave with the club for their road trip that begins Thursday. There's no talk of the disabled list at this point, but it doesn't sound like Rasmus' return to the lineup is imminent. "There’s still a little bit of achiness in there and still a little bit of discomfort," Hinch said. "I think the smart thing for us is just to let the doctors continue to monitor him and get the infection out of there."

Twins released INF Ryan Wheeler.

Wheeler, who will turn 27 next week, hit just .233/.243/.315 in 74 plate appearances at Triple-A Rochester. He'll now look for a minor league deal elsewhere.

Cubs pitching prospect Duane Underwood is headed to Chicago to undergo an MRI on his right elbow.

Underwood, who is arguably the team's pitching prospect with the most upside, felt discomfort in his last outing for High-A Myrtle Beach. "We’ll find out," general manager Jed Hoyer said. "He was really raw and young when we got him and he’s developed really well. He’s got great stuff. The nature of pitching is there’s going to be stops and starts."

Eury Perez (torso) lined out as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

Perez was injured Sunday when he collided with Cameron Maybin in left field, but he escaped a major ailment. He'll be fine.

Will Middlebrooks (ankle) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

Middlebrooks was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with an ankle injury that occurred when he stepped on a bat in the on-deck circle. He's expected to avoid the disabled list.

Alcides Escobar (finger) singled in one of his four plate appearances in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Escobar was lifted from Sunday's game and was a late scratch Monday due to a split nail bed on his right index finger. He's expected to be fine.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Jerry Dipoto is "definitely out" as the Angels general manager.

Crasnick says Dipoto went to owner Arte Moreno with an ultimatum, "and it backfired." FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Dipoto "packed up his office and left today," but it's not clear whether he "acted out of emotion" or if he's resigning. Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia have long had a rocky relationship, and things reached a head after Rosenthal published an article earlier this week about the two's working relationship getting worse. We should hear something definitive on Dipoto later Wednesday.

Kenley Jansen allowed a run but still snagged his 12th save of the season as the Dodgers pulled out a 6-4 victory in 10 innings against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

With two outs, Jansen issued his first walk of the season to his 56th batter. Paul Goldschmidt then punished him for the walk with an RBI double. Jansen bounced back to strike out Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 12-for-13 in save chances this season with a 1.08 ERA and a 28/1 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings.
