Josh Harrison is hitting seventh for the Pirates in Wednesday's game versus the Reds.
It's the first time this season he's hit anywhere other than first or second. The slumping Harrison has just one hit in his last 23 at-bats and is down to an ugly .188/.220/.313 for the season.
Jordy Mercer is not in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.
It appears to just be a day of rest. Jung Ho Kang is at shortstop Wednesday in Mercer's place.
Braves pitching prospect Steve Janas lost his perfect game in the seventh inning Tuesday in a win for High-A Carolina.
Clint Frazier broke up the perfect game with a single to right. Janas retired the next two hitters to preserve the one-hitter. The 23-year-old has only allowed two runs all season and now owns an impressive 19-to-2 strikeout to walk ratio. With opponents hitting just .165 against him this year, it's clear Janas has outgrown High-A. Expect a promotion for Janas in the near future.
Dodgers recalled RHP Joe Wieland from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
He'll make his Dodgers' debut on Wednesday in Milwaukee. Wieland holds a 3.60 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 22/2 K/BB ratio in 20 innings this season at Oklahoma City. He has a shot to stick in the rotation until Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is ready.
Dodgers optioned LHP Daniel Coulombe to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Coulombe allowed one run in his lone appearance with the big club. He returns to a 1.74 ERA and 16/4 K/BB ratio through 10 1/3 innings at Oklahoma City.
Pirates recalled INF/OF Steve Lombardozzi from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Lombarddozzi was off to a .379/.460/.483 start at the plate at Indy. He's operate in a utility role.
Pirates placed OF Andrew Lambo on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 4, with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
It's unclear how long Lambo has been dealing with the ailment or how long he'll be sidelined. Steve Lombardozzi has replaced him on the roster.
Zack Cozart (wrist) remained out of the Reds' lineup Wednesday.
Cozart still has some soreness in his left wrist as a result of a hit by pitch Sunday. Kristopher Negron is filling in at shortstop.
