Franklin Barreto is starting at second base and hitting ninth on Wednesday against the Mariners.

Barreto will start at second base, so Jed Lowrie will be the DH against Seattle on Wednesday night. The 22-year-old infielder was called up on Wednesday to take the roster spot of Khris Davis (groin) who was placed on the 10-day disabled list. Barreto will strike out, but the ball can jump off his bat, and there's some power in is right-handed bat as well.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will play seven innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Pedroia (knew) will then have the opportunity to play the next day if the knee holds up; an 11:05 tilt on Thursday. The Red Sox reportedly want to see Pedroia play in back-to-back games before recalling him to Boston. If he can go on Wednesday and Thursday, he'll fulfill that, and he could be activated by the end of the weekend.

Austin Barnes is hitting second and catching against the Rockies on Wednesday.

Barnes gets the start while Yasmani Grandal gets a night off against Colorado. Barnes has struggled to hit for average or power this year (.222 average, .306 slugging percentage), but he continues to show an impressive eye at the plate with a .404 on-base percentage in his 72 at-bats.
May 23 - 5:40 PM

Michael Wacha gave up four hits and two runs (one earned) over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Royals.

Wacha recorded six strikeouts and didn’t walk anyone. Seventy of his season-high 102 pitches went for strikes. The right-hander served up a solo blast to Salvador Perez in the second inning, then gave up another run in the sixth on Whit Merrifield’s sac fly to center. Wednesday marked Wacha’s third straight quality start. He’ll try to keep that streak going in his next outing Tuesday against Milwaukee.
May 23 - 5:32 PM

Francisco Pena accounted for two of the Cardinals’ six hits in Wednesday’s loss to Kansas City.

He drove in a run with a second-inning double, then reached on an infield single in the fifth. Pena’s two-bagger off Jake Junis was one of just two extra-base hits for the Cardinals, who combined to go 6-for-35 with 10 strikeouts against Royals pitching. The 28-year-old has been filling in for an injured Yadier Molina (groin) behind the plate.
May 23 - 5:31 PM

Jake Junis was tagged for five hits and two runs over five innings of work Wednesday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

He walked one and struck out seven over 81 pitches. The right-hander allowed both runs in the second inning. Three of the Cardinals’ five hits against him also came in that frame. Junis hasn’t been pitching deep into games, but he’s done nice work for KC with five wins and a respectable 3.52 ERA over 10 starts this year. He’ll get back to work Monday against Minnesota.
May 23 - 5:30 PM

Kelvin Herrera tossed a perfect 10th inning for his 10th save Wednesday in the Royals’ 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

He struck out one while throwing seven of his 11 pitches for strikes. The right-hander hasn’t had a ton of save opportunities—Wednesday was only Kansas City’s 16th win—but he’s been terrific when called upon, impressing with a 0.96 ERA over 18 2/3 innings this year.
May 23 - 5:29 PM
Jon Jay - OF - Royals

Jon Jay singled and drove in a run Wednesday in the Royals’ 10-inning win over St. Louis.

Playing against his former team, Jay went hitless in his first three at-bats before adding to the Royals’ lead with an RBI single off lefty Brett Cecil in the 10th inning. That single extended his hitting streak to five games. The 33-year-old is batting a healthy .293 on the year, but doesn’t offer enough speed (two steals) or power (no homers in 188 at-bats) to be a useful fantasy contributor.
