Scott Kazmir will have an MRI of his left shoulder taken Thursday.
Kazmir left Wednesday's start after three inning with shoulder tightness, so the club will have it looked at. More should be known about his outlook after the results of the MRI are known.
Yoenis Cespedes finished 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Tigers' 3-2 defeat of the A's on Wednesday afternoon at Oakland's O.co Coliseum.
Cespedes drew a walk in the top of the second, singled in the top of the fourth, and then clubbed a three-run homer off A's reliever Dan Otero in the top of the fifth. All while receiving friendly applause from the Oakland fans in his old stomping ground. Cespedes is batting .291/.327/.489 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 48 games this season for Detroit.
Joakim Soria earned his 15th save of the season Wednesday in the Tigers' defeat of the A's.
Soria gave up a leadoff single to Stephen Vogt and a one-out walk to Mark Canha, but he ended the threat by striking out Brett Lawrie and Marcus Semien in order. Soria boasts a 1.27 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, and 17/4 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings this season and should remain a highly valuable fantasy closer all year on another good Tigers team.
Alex Wilson fired three hitless innings Wednesday in the Tigers' win over the Athletics.
The right-handed reliever was forced into a spot start because Kyle Ryan didn't make it to Oakland's O.co Coliseum in time. Ryan entered the game later and actually wound up getting the win. Wilson issued one walk and recorded one strikeout in his three shutout frames. He will head back to the bullpen with a 1.99 ERA and 0.71 WHIP in 22 2/3 total innings for the season.
Sean Doolittle threw a scoreless sixth inning in the A's loss to the Tigers on Wednesday afternoon.
It was his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list on Tuesday evening. Doolittle didn't top 90 mph, but he looked pretty sharp in striking out two of the four batters he faced. The left-hander should move into the A's closer role after one or two more low-leverage outings. Doolittle missed the first eight weeks of the 2015 regular season with a slight tear in his left rotator cuff.
Juan Uribe is in the Braves' lineup against the Dodgers Wednesday, batting fifth and playing third base.
Uribe didn't have to travel far after Wednesday's trade, simply walking to the Braves' locker room as the Dodgers host Uribe's new club. With third baseman Chris Johnson returning from the disabled list on Wednesday afternoon, Uribe will likely fill a part-time role with the Braves moving forward.
Sammy Solis (shoulder) threw off flat ground Wednesday.
Solis hit the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 18 with left shoulder inflammation. Given that he's still not throwing off a mound, it appears unlikely he'll be back when his 15 days are up.
Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves.
With lefty Alex Wood on the hill for the Braves, it appears manager Don Mattingly is simply playing the matchups. Chris Heisey started in right field for the Dodgers.
