Joey Votto was ejected in the third inning of Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

Votto made contact with umpire Chris Conroy while arguing a called third strike, which is likely to draw further punishment (perhaps even a suspension). Votto also exchanged words with Pirates starter Gerrit Cole before heading into the visitors clubhouse at PNC Park. It's rare to see such an outburst from the thoughtful 31-year-old first baseman.

Ian Kennedy held the Giants to one run over seven innings in the Padres' lopsided 9-1 win Wednesday.

Giants starter Chris Heston had no answer for the Padres' bats, but Kennedy had no problem silencing the Giants'. The right-hander allowed just six hits without walking a batter, striking out five. Kennedy has rattled off two straight wins after a bumpy return from the disabled list in late April, and he's now 2-1 with a still-unsightly 5.03 ERA. An interleague tilt with the Mariners is on tap for Tuesday.
May 6 - 7:43 PM

Jedd Gyorko did everything in pairs Wednesday, going 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in the Padres' lopsided win over the Giants.

Gyorko had an RBI single in the third inning before smashing a run-scoring double in the eighth. It was a good showing for the embattled second baseman, who has seen his job challenged by Yangervis Solarte and Cory Spangenberg in recent weeks. Gyorko is the most talented hitter of the group, so if he can get right at the plate he should hold onto the gig going forward.
May 6 - 7:34 PM

Chris Heston was pounded by the Padres on Wednesday, allowing 11 hits and five runs over five innings of work in the loss.

Heston was lucky to escape without more damage, as he allowed 14 baserunners on the afternoon. He's now turned in two subpar starts in his last three outings after a stellar beginning to the year. It seems the carriage may be turning back into a pumpkin, but he shouldn't be completely left for dead yet. Tuesday's start at the Astros will be an important one for the 27-year-old.
May 6 - 7:29 PM

Kenley Jansen (foot) has had his scheduled back-to-back outings pushed back to Saturday and Sunday.

Jansen was scheduled to throw back-to-back Wednesday and Thursday, but after throwing 25 pitches in Wednesday's appearance the Dodgers decided to play it safe. Jansen is getting closer to a return, with the back-to-back test one of the last he'll need to pass before activation. That activation could come as early as next week.
May 6 - 7:25 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports Jarrod Saltalamacchia could sign with a club as early as Thursday.

Cafardo notes the Red Sox, who have now lost Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan for significant lengths of time, are not interested. Those who are include the Mariners, Orioles, Royals and Diamondbacks. We should know soon enough where his new home will be.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) has progressed to playing catch from 75 feet.

Despite the progress, McClendon said the right-hander is "a ways away." Iwakuma will almost certainly need a rehab start or two to get back up to speed once he's ready. The 34-year-old has been out since April 21 with the strained lat, and he likely won't be back before late May or early June as it stands now.
May 6 - 7:20 PM

David Lennon of Newsday reports Noah Syndergaard is "next in line" for a spot start with the Mets.

Syndergaard, according to Lennon's source, has an edge on fellow prospect Steven Matz due to his Triple-A experience. Once the Mets start Syndergaard's clock they may choose to just keep him in the major league rotation, so it's certainly worth monitoring. With guys like Dillon Gee making a start every five days, the club could choose to promote the top prospect at any point.
