Mets manager Terry Collins plans to play new acquisition Eric Young Jr. often.
"We'll probably play him quite often to see what he brings to the table," Collins said. "We're hoping he brings something that we haven't had since Jose [Reyes]." Young was in center field and hitting leadoff on Wednesday in his first game with the Mets. Fantasy owners in need of steals should scoop him up.
Chris Perez (shoulder) will be re-evaluated after a bullpen session on Friday.
Perez had been scheduled for activation that day, but that's been pushed back after he allowed three homers and five runs in a rehab appearance Tuesday. He's feeling fine physically, but the Indians want him to work on his mechanics, as they think he was coming open a little too soon in his delivery. Vinnie Pestano will continue to close for the Tribe for now.
Michael Morse is back in the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.
Morse sat out Tuesday due to his nagging right quad injury. He's been playing first base lately in order to limit his running, which means Justin Smoak is on the bench.
Trevor Cahill (hip) is expected to be ready for his next start.
Cahill had to leave Wednesday's game after taking a first-inning Marcell Ozuna line drive off his right hip. His removal was a precaution, though, and he'll be fine for a start early next week against the Nationals.
Madison Bumgarner held the Padres to two runs and three hits over seven innings to earn his seventh victory Wednesday.
Will Venable and Jesus Guzman homered off Bumgarner, but none of the four walks (one intentional) did any damage. It's the first time this season that Bumgarner has allowed multiple homers in a game. He's won three straight starts after a May swoon, and he has his ERA back down to 3.25. Next up for him is an outing against the Dodgers.
Cody Ross has been dealing with contact issues due to the dry climate in Arizona.
Ross paid a visit to the eye doctor, who evidently fixed the issue, as the outfielder launched a pinch-hit three-run homer Wednesday. Perhaps he's due for a hot streak with his vision issues behind him.
Luke Gregerson gave up hits to all four Giants he faced and took a blown save and a loss on Wednesday.
Gregerson has already pushed back into a setup role with Huston Street back, but he's still struggling. He's given up six runs and 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings in his last five appearances.
Tyson Ross struck out all five Giants he faced out of the pen on Wednesday.
He needed just 21 pitches to do it, too. The Padres said last month that Ross was going to get another shot in the rotation, but nothing of late suggests that they're intending to make that happen anytime soon. He ha a 2.05 ERA in 22 innings since coming off the DL and joining the pen.
