Justin Verlander (triceps) has been cleared to resume a throwing program.

It confirms what Verlander essentially reported himself earlier Wednesday. The veteran right-hander has been slow to get over the hump while battling a right triceps strain, but the third MRI he took Tuesday apparently showed sufficient healing. The Tigers didn't reveal details about Verlander's throwing program, but he'll be built back up slowly and won't return until next month.

Casey McGehee is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It's the second straight day off for the struggling third baseman. Matt Duffy is at the hot corner Wednesday in McGehee's place.

Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

He's just getting some rest with it being a day game after a night game. Andrew Susac is catching Chris Heston.
May 6 - 1:28 PM

Angel Pagan (finger) is back in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

Pagan suffered a laceration on his left middle finger when he slid into second base on Monday, but he's back in there after one day of rest. The outfielder sports a nifty .350/.373/.447 batting line this season.

He'll serve as the 26th man during Wednesday's doubleheader. Rusin has posted a 6.23 ERA over four starts at Albuquerque this season.

It looks like just a routine day of rest. Cory Spangenberg is at third base Wednesday in Middlebrooks' place.
May 6 - 12:46 PM

Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock next week.

It had been reported previously that he'd begin the assignment later this week, but the Rangers are pushing it back a few days. Hamilton has played in extended spring training games the last couple days and is expected back before the end of May.
