Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that early June would be the "best-case scenario" for Scott Van Slyke's return to action from a back injury.

Van Slyke has been doing exercises to strengthen his core, but he has yet to resume baseball activity. He hit the disabled list in early April with lower back tightness. The 29-year-old outfielder is a strong option against southpaw pitching when he is healthy. Once he has been cleared for baseball activities, we should have a more clear idea of his recovery timetable.

Bryce Harper slugged his 10th home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals.

Harper opened the game's scoring in the top of the first inning with an RBI single to center field, kicking off a six-run frame for the visiting Nats. The 2015 National League MVP then went deep off Dillon Gee for a solo shot in the top of the fifth inning. He's sporting a 1.021 OPS on the season, even after wading through a mini slump last week.
May 4 - 5:25 PM

Joe Smith earned his second save of the season Wednesday in the Angels' 7-3 defeat of the Brewers.

Smith worked both the eighth and ninth Wednesday afternoon in Milwaukee, yielding just one hit and striking out two. He carries huge fantasy potential while Huston Street (oblique) is out, and Street could be out a while.
May 4 - 5:20 PM

Hector Santiago yielded three earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision in Milwaukee.

It could have been worse, as Santiago walked four and gave up eight hits. He also struggled in his last start Friday in Arlington, Texas, and he will face an unfamiliar foe next time out in the Cardinals. But the 28-year-old lefty has a strong 3.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 32/13 K/BB ratio in 37 2/3 total innings this season and remains a must-start in standard leagues.
May 4 - 5:17 PM

Zach Davies allowed two earned runs over six innings Wednesday in the Brewers' loss to the Angels.

Milwaukee's bullpen -- Tyler Thornburg, to be exact -- turned in a close game into a late rout. Davies struck out three, walked three, and gave up five hits in what wound up as a no-decision. He'll carry a 6.98 ERA into his next start on the road against the Marlins.
May 4 - 5:13 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter would not rule out Zach Britton (ankle) for a possible appearance in Wednesday's contest with the Yankees.

Showalter indicated that he wants more information on Britton's current health before he makes an informed decision as to the closer's availability. The 28-year-old left-hander sprained his left ankle over the weekend while attempting to field a bunt. Until Britton returns to action (which should be soon), Darren O'Day should continue to see save opportunities.
May 4 - 4:49 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

Garcia is dealing with a tweaked hamstring suffered on Friday against the Orioles. After several days of rest, he had been hoping for a return to the lineup on Wednesday. The White Sox play the Red Sox again on Thursday and Garcia could conceivably crack the lineup for that one if the team feels comfortable with his health.
May 4 - 4:44 PM

Brock Holt is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest with the White Sox.

Holt will sit against opposing southpaw starter Carlos Rodon. In his place, Chris Young earns a start in left field. Young is hitting sixth. This is nothing new for Holt. He has seen just nine at-bats all season against left-handed pitchers.
