Rich Hill (blister) threw another bullpen session on Wednesday.

Hill also threw a bullpen session on Tuesday, and he told reporters he touched 92 mph with his fastball in his latest bullpen session on Wednesday. Hill is still wearing a band-aid over his left middle finger -- something he isn't legally allowed to do -- and he still projects to come back to the Los Angeles rotation at some point in the middle of June.

Mark Trumbo is out of the lineup against the White Sox on Friday with a right knee injury.

Trumbo gets the night off while dealing with the knee trouble, and Danny Valencia is getting the start at DH against Chicago and hitting sixth against Dylan Covey. He's considered day-to-day, so Trumbo could be back in the lineup by the end of the week. There's also a chance that he could get placed on the 10-day disabled list if the Orioles aren't confident he'll be back soon.

Justin Verlander allowed three hits and one run over six dominant innings Wednesday in the Astros’ win over San Francisco.

He cashed out with nine strikeouts and only one walk over 97 pitches. The only hint of trouble for Verlander came in the fourth when Gorkys Hernandez led off the inning with a triple to center field and later scored on a sac fly by Buster Posey. Incredibly, Verlander’s ERA actually went up (from 1.05 to 1.08) as a result of Wednesday’s outing. He’s been practically unbeatable since joining Houston last summer. The former MVP will try for his seventh win Monday versus the Yankees. He struck out 14 over eight shutout innings in his previous start against them on May 1.

George Springer added two hits including his 10th homer Wednesday in the Astros’ 4-1 win over the Giants.

Springer singled off Jeff Samardzija (literally—he drilled a comebacker off his right hand) for Houston’s first hit of the afternoon, then broke a 1-1 tie by sending a two-run homer out to the train tracks in left field. The reigning World Series MVP has been excellent as usual for the first-place Astros, slashing .294/.353/.500 with 10 round-trippers, 31 RBI and 36 runs scored.
May 23 - 6:31 PM

Carlos Correa contributed two hits Wednesday in Houston’s win over the Giants.

Correa singled and scored in the fourth, then drove in a run with an RBI single in the fifth. He was initially credited with a third hit in the eighth inning, though replay showed he was out and the play was eventually overturned. Despite Wednesday’s outburst, Correa has had a difficult month, batting just .188 with 18 strikeouts in 69 May at-bats.
May 23 - 6:30 PM

Ken Giles earned his ninth save Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Giants.

He opened the ninth inning by allowing a leadoff single to Brandon Belt but recovered by setting down the next three men in order. Giles never makes things easy, but remains a perfect 9-for-9 in save opportunities this year. Manager A.J. Hinch won’t hesitate to sit Giles down if he goes through a rough patch—it’s already happened once this year. But for now, it looks like the right-hander has a good handle on things.

Dodgers recall LHP Edward Paredes from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Paredes takes the spot of J.T. Chargois, who was optioned to Oklahoma City on Wednesday. He's pitched well for the Triple-A Dodgers, posting a 1.17 ERA over 15 appearances in the Pacific Coast League.
May 23 - 6:28 PM

Jeff Samardzija yielded four hits and four runs (three earned) over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Giants’ loss to the Astros.

He handed out five free passes in addition to his three strikeouts. Samardzija didn’t allow a hit until the third inning when he gave up an infield single to George Springer. Springer got to him again in the fifth, this time taking Samardzija deep for a two-run homer. Samardzija’s command was an issue all day as the right-hander threw just 51 of his 97 pitches for strikes. Wednesday extended Samardzija’s winless streak to six starts. He’ll take an ugly 6.23 ERA into his next outing Tuesday at hitter-friendly Coors Field in Colorado.
