Ian Kinsler (flu) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Phillies.

Kinsler had to be scratched from Tuesday night's game after experiencing flu-like symptoms and he'll remain on the bench for Wednesday's matinee. Mike Aviles is starting at second base and batting eighth versus Philadelphia right-hander Aaron Nola. Cameron Maybin will get another turn at leadoff.

Cesar Hernandez is not in the Phillies' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers.

Hernandez was dropped from the second spot to the seventh spot in the Philadelphia batting order on Tuesday night and went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout. He's slashing just .248/.301/.301 in 43 games this season. Andres Blanco will start at second base and hit seventh Wednesday versus Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez.

Cody Asche (oblique) went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI on Tuesday night at Double-A Reading.

Asche had been held hitless since moving his minor league rehab assignment from High-A Clearwater to Reading on Sunday. The third baseman turned corner outfielder has been on the disabled list the entire season because of a Grade 1 strain of his right oblique. He should be cleared to rejoin the Phillies on June 1, when his 20-day rehab window will officially close.

Wil Myers (forearm) is not expected to play Wednesday.

Myers experienced some discomfort in his left forearm Monday while picking up a baseball and the Padres want to play it safe so that this doesn't turn into another extended absence. Including a scheduled team off day Thursday, the 25-year-old first baseman can get three straight days of rest. He's slashing just .218/.227/.345 with one walk and 17 strikeouts in 87 at-bats this month.

Yasiel Puig was removed from Tuesday's game due to a lack of hustle.

Puig spent a long time admiring a shot to the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth inning, turning a potential extra-base hit into a single. He did drive in a run with that hard liner and would eventually come around to score, but it was a bad look for a guy who still owns a weak .247/.289/.382 overall batting line this season. "We talk a lot about playing the game the right way," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "For me, mental mistakes, we’re going to live with. But in my opinion, he should have been on second base. It’s something that when we talk about playing the game the right way, we have to be accountable. That was the decision I made."

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) fired seven innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a rehab start at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez struck out seven, walked none, and surrendered only four hits over his seven impressive frames. It was a very encouraging outing from the 23-year-old left-hander, who had to be scratched from a rehab start last week due to renewed soreness in his injured right knee. He's back on track now, though there's no exact timetable for his 2016 debut in Boston.

Aaron Loup (elbow) threw another scoreless inning Tuesday night at Triple-A Buffalo.

Loup got roughed up in his rehab debut May 14 at High-A Dunedin, but he's made four scoreless appearances since with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings. The left-hander should be cleared to join Toronto's bullpen this weekend. He's been out all year because of a flexor strain in his pitching elbow.
May 25 - 9:06 AM

Devon Travis (shoulder) went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in his ninth minor league rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A Buffalo.

That was his fourth double since he began playing in rehab games on May 13 and he's now batting .306/.316/.417 with eight RBI in 38 plate appearances between High-A Dunedin and Buffalo. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons insisted Saturday that Travis, coming off major shoulder surgery, would not be rushed back to the active major league roster. But we will probably see him debut over the weekend if everything continues to go smoothly.
