Josh Willingham (knee) is back in the Twins' starting lineup on Tuesday evening versus the White Sox.
Willingham got a cortisone shot in his troublesome left knee on Sunday. He'll try to play through the pain.
Anthony Rizzo is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the rival Cardinals.
It's the first day off of the season for the young first baseman, who has 10 home runs and 39 RBI in 68 games this season. Cody Ransom will get the nod in his place against Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright.
Matt Harvey took a no-hitter into the seventh before giving up three runs in seven-plus innings Tuesday in a victory over the Braves.
Jason Heyward's infield single ended the no-hit bid; Harvey actually had a play on him, but he didn't think he could make the tag after grabbing the ball towards the first base line and decided to flip to first, which happened to be vacant. Harvey got through that inning scoreless anyway, but the eighth was a different story. He loaded the bases with no outs and then got pulled. After he left, all three runners came around to score. It took some of the shine of a dominant effort in which Harvey struck out 13. Still, he did pick up his first win since May 17 and his second since April 19.
Rangers recalled C Robinson Chirinos from Triple-A Round Rock.
Chirinos will provide depth off the Rangers' bench. He has three hits in 12 big-league at-bats this year.
Bobby Parnell picked up a four-out save Tuesday in the first game of the doubleheader against the Braves.
Parnell struck out Chris Johnson to bail the Mets out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth and then pitched a scoreless ninth to save the 4-3 game. It was one of his best performances of the season, and he's now 10-for-13 saving games.
Rangers recalled LHP Joseph Ortiz from Triple-A Round Rock.
Ortiz has a 5.13 ERA in 20 appearances this year in the major leagues. He will operate in middle relief.
Alex Wood came out of his spot start Tuesday after allowing one run in three innings against the Mets.
The Braves never gave any official word, but it appeared that Wood was suffering from a finger blister. He impressed before departing, striking out five. The one run he allowed came on a misplay from third baseman Chris Johnson.
Rangers optioned 1B Chris McGuiness to Triple-A Round Rock.
McGuiness had six hits and 13 strikeouts in 34 plate appearances with the Rangers for a .176/.176/.206 batting line. He may get another shot later this summer.
