Evan Gattis was all the offense the Braves needed, going 4-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Gattis knocked in the only run of the game when he hit a wall-scraping home run to left field off of Cliff Lee in the fourth inning. He also singled three times, bringing his average up to .378. Gattis now has six hits and three home runs in his last two games, both against the Phillies.

Coco Crisp (hamstring) is not in the Athletics' lineup for a third straight game Wednesday.

Like in Tuesday's game, Crisp will be available as a pinch-hitter. With a day off Thursday, A's manager Bob Melvin just wanted to maximize Crisp's rest to get the hamstring fully healed. Expect him back in the lineup on Friday.

Juan Lagares told the Newark Star-Ledger that his pulled right hamstring is "not that bad."

"I feel better now," Lagares said. Lagares received the results of his MRI Wednesday and met with the Mets' trainer to talk about treatment plans. He said he believes the injury is a one-to-two week injury, suggesting that he could be back after the 15 days are up. The Mets, however, are going to be cautious with their center fielder.

Chad Billingsley is dealing with tendinitis in his right elbow.

The good news is that there's no ligament damage in the elbow. Billingsley had a bullpen session Tuesday cut short due to discomfort in the elbow. He'll be backed off from his throwing program, so obviously his timetable for return moves back as well. It's unclear what that timetable looks like right now.

Mets manager Terry Collins said he's sticking with Jose Valverde as his closer.

Collins was pressed about his closer situation after Valverde allowed two home runs in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks. It was the second straight outing in which Valverde served up a homer, and he's allowed five runs over his past two appearances. The 36-year-old may still be the go-to guy for now, but his leash can't be too terribly long at this point.
Apr 16 - 8:10 PM

Brandon Crawford is not in the Giants' starting lineup for Wednesday's game due to a tight right hamstring.

Crawford downplayed the injury, saying he could have played if needed. As it is, he'll be available off the bench for manager Bruce Bochy and hopes to be back in the lineup Thursday. Joaquin Arias started at shortstop in his place Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 7:45 PM

Dillon Gee allowed just three hits over seven scoreless innings in the Mets' 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

In his fourth start of the year, Gee kept the Diamondbacks hitters off balance all day. Arizona runners never got past second base during Gee's watch, as he didn't walk a batter while striking out three. The dominance secured Gee's first win of the year, and he'll go for two in a row Tuesday against the Cardinals.
Apr 16 - 7:38 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Kole Calhoun will miss 4-6 weeks with a bad ligament sprain.

It's a tough blow to the Angels and fantasy owners, as Calhoun was really turning it on before the injury. Calhoun had seven hits in his last 15 at-bats prior to rolling his ankle late in Wednesday's game. The Angels will rely on Collin Cowgill and Brennan Boesch in right field for the time being, but the team may take a look at external options now that Calhoun will miss significant time.
