Marlins manager Don Mattingly said that Giancarlo Stanton is dealing with "a little soreness" on his right side.
Stanton is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays. It is not known if this current bout of soreness is related to a mid-May outfield collision with teammate Marcell Ozuna. Unless further word surfaces, the slugger should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Corey Kluber was fantastic in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the White Sox, firing 7 1/3 innings of two-run ball while striking out nine.
Only one of the two runs on Kluber's line was earned. The nine strikeouts stand as his second-best effort of 2016. After struggling for much of April, the ace right-hander has worked his ERA down to 3.78. He also holds a 1.11 WHIP and 67/16 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 innings. He will look to continue to round into form in a home start against the Rangers next time he takes the ball.
Jose Quintana turned in a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Indians, surrendering three runs on five hits over six innings.
Quintana struck out eight and walked just one on the afternoon. He has now tossed at least six innings in nine of his 10 starts. With Wednesday's quality start under his belt, he will carry a 2.22 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 60/12 K/BB ratio (65 innings) into a road tilt with the Mets next time he toes the rubber.
Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Jorge De La Rosa will be moved to the bullpen for the time being.
This shouldn't be considered a huge surprise. De La Rosa was rocked for seven runs over 3 1/3 innings against the Red Sox on Tuesday and now holds an 11.41 ERA through six starts this season. He missed almost a month with a strained left groin suffered in late April, but was struggling even before the injury. With De La Rosa shifting to the bullpen, Chris Rusin will join the rotation.
Maikel Franco (ankle) said that he expects to play against the Cubs on Friday.
Franco was forced out of Wednesday's showdown with the Tigers due to a right ankle sprain. He seemed unconcerned after the game and called the sprain "minor." Fantasy owners should check to make sure he is in the lineup on Friday, but early indications are that this should not be considered a serious injury.
Troy Tulowitzki (quad) was feeling better on Wednesday, but is still considered day-to-day.
Tulowitzki was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Yankees after experiencing right quad tightness. He is not in Wednesday's lineup, with Ryan Goins earning a start at shortstop in his place.
Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Brock Holt (concussion) will begin his rehab work with "general conditioning."
Per Farrell, Holt underwent a "battery of tests" when he visited concussion specialist Dr. Mickey Collins in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The 27-year-old outfielder was actually hoping to be activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list on Wednesday, but the Red Sox are taking no chances here. Somewhat distressing, he initially suffered the head injury on May 10, but it was not diagnosed for another week.
Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is next scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.
Rodriguez turned in nice work in Tuesday's rehab outing at Triple-A, tossing seven innings and allowing just one run. The 23-year-old southpaw initially hit the disabled list prior to Opening Day with a right patella subluxation. He had a setback in his recovery that forced him to miss one rehab start earlier this month, but it appears that the renewed soreness in the knee has dissipated. There is no concrete date for him to join the Red Sox rotation at this point, but early-June will become realistic if he continues to pitch well on the farm.
