Braves manager Brian Snitker said Matt Kemp (hamstring) will be the starter in left field when he returns from the disabled list.

Kemp will work out on Friday and if all goes well, he'll be activated Saturday versus Cincinnati. Matt Adams has been manning left field in Kemp's absence, though Snitker was clear that Kemp will be the starter upon his return. With Freddie Freeman back at first base full-time, it looks like Adams could be riding the pine for the foreseeable future.

Phillies optioned RHP Nick Pivetta to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

This comes after Pivetta scattered five hits and three runs while delivering a career-high 11 strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to San Diego. This is merely a procedural move as Pivetta is fully expected to make his next start. The Phillies have a doubleheader against the Marlins on Tuesday, at which point Pivetta will rejoin the rotation as the team's 26th man.

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Austin Barnes caught Yu Darvish's last start and will work with him again on Wednesday. Grandal has had a quiet month, batting just .161 with one homer over 31 August at-bats.

Cody Bellinger is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

The Rookie of the Year frontrunner will get a rare day off on Wednesday. Rob Segedin will man first base in his absence while batting eighth against Pale Hose left-hander Carlos Rodon. The 22-year-old has cruised to a .333 average with six homers this month.

Brewers sent RHP Michael Blazek outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Blazek will stay in the organization as minor league depth after passing through waivers unclaimed. The right-hander has logged a disappointing 8.31 ERA across five big league appearances this season.

Lance McCullers (back) is slated to throw another bullpen session on Thursday.

It will be his second bullpen session since going down with a back injury at the end of last month. Manager A.J. Hinch seems to be pleased with McCullers' progress and says there's a rehab assignment "in sight." McCullers earned his first All-Star nod earlier this year but has pitched to a disastrous 9.42 ERA over three second-half starts.

Michael Feliz (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

It was his first time on the mound since bowing out with a shoulder injury at the start of August. Per beat writer Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle, Feliz is behind Will Harris (shoulder), Lance McCullers (back) and Tony Sipp (calf), who are also in rehab mode. Feliz has posted an underwhelming 5.04 ERA while filling a middle relief role for the 'Stros this year.

Hector Santiago's MRI revealed inflammation in his cervical area.

Santiago also received a cortisone injection in his neck, though the hope is that he'll resume throwing in 3-5 days. It looked like the left-hander was nearing a return from a back injury but was shut down after suffering a setback during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester. Santiago hasn't won a start for the Twins since May 9.
