Scott Kazmir (hip) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session in front of Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt on Thursday at Angel Stadium.

Kazmir worked three innings of one-run ball in his first minor league rehab game Monday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga and met up with the Dodgers in Anaheim on Wednesday for a reevaluation from the team's medical and coaching staffs. He's probably going to need another three or four successful rehab starts before becoming an option for the major league rotation. The veteran lefty has been out all year due to a hip injury and general arm fatigue.

Daniel Mengden has been out of action all month at Triple-A Nashville due to a stress reaction in his rib cage.

But he's on the mend at the Athletics' spring training complex in Arizona, per beat writer Jane Lee of MLB.com. Mengden allowed nine earned runs in eight innings (two starts) earlier this season with Oakland. It'll probably be a while before we see him again at the major league level.

Yonder Alonso (knee) said late Wednesday that he could be ready to play Thursday.

Alonso was removed from Wednesday night's loss to the Astros after fouling a ball off his right knee in the eighth inning and he looked to be in a good amount of pain as he limped off the field, but the 30-year-old slugger escaped with a minor contusion. Consider him day-to-day.

Tyler Austin will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring.

Austin initially injured the hamstring down at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and it has worsened since his promotion to the MLB level. Yankees manager Joe Girardi acknowledged Wednesday that this could be a situation that requires a 10-day disabled list stint. Dustin Fowler may be on the way up from the minors to help out at first base.

Avisail Garcia is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left knee Thursday morning.

Garcia left Wednesday night's game against the Yankees after landing awkwardly while sliding back into first base on a pickoff attempt. He said after the game that he doesn't think it's anything serious, but the White Sox want to be sure. "I got a little bit hurt, but I’m fine," the 26-year-old outfielder told reporters late Wednesday.

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Wednesday as the Angels edged the Dodgers 3-2.

The Angels won the game in the bottom of the ninth after Ben Revere reached on an error, advanced to second on a wild pitch and came around to score on a wild pitch/strikeout in which Yasmani Grandal's throw to first sailed into right field. That's how one might expect a 27-52 team to lose, not a 52-27 team like the Dodgers, but you just never know with baseball. Simmons' homer off Ryu would have been the decisive blow tonight if Grandal hadn't homered with two outs and two strikes in the top of the ninth to tie the game. It was Simmons' eighth homer in 81 games this year. That matches his total in 271 games from 2015 and 2016.

Alex Meyer pitched around five walks to shut out the Dodgers for six innings Wednesday.

Meyer got a visit from the trainer at the beginning of the fourth, but he was allowed to continue. He gave up just one hit on the night, illustrating what he might be capable of as he does a better job of harnessing his stuff. Still, with 37 walks in 55 1/3 innings this year, he's not a mixed-league option.
Jun 29 - 1:44 AM

Cam Bedrosian was given his first save chance Wednesday since coming off the DL, but he blew it after giving up a game-tying homer with two outs and two strikes.

Yasmani Grandal hit the homer, the first allowed by Bedrosian in 12 innings this year and just the second in 52 1/3 innings since the beginning of last year. Bedrosian remains worth owning in mixed leagues, but he's probably going to resume setting up with Bud Norris potentially returning this weekend.
