Wil Myers (forearm) is out again Wednesday.
Myers felt discomfort in his troublesome left forearm late Monday while picking up a baseball. It's not considered a serious setback, but the Padres will play it cautiously just in case. Brett Wallace is at first base Wednesday versus Giants righty Jake Peavy.
Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with back spasms.
Cabrera left Wednesday's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the first inning, with Matt Reynolds taking over at shortstop. Asdrubal apparently felt the discomfort during pregame warmups. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but you never know with the Mets and their rash of back issues.
Hunter Pence (hamstring) remains absent from the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.
Pence has been dealing with right hamstring discomfort since Saturday and told reporters Tuesday that he plans to take it easy and let the muscle fully heal. There's a chance he could return Friday after Thursday's scheduled off day, but it's not guaranteed. Jarrett Parker is starting in left field and Gregor Blanco is in right field Wednesday versus Padres right-hander James Shields.
Buster Posey is not in the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres.
It's just a standard day of rest for Posey. Trevor Brown will get the start at catcher and bat eighth with the Padres throwing right-hander James Shields.
Asdrubal Cabrera was removed from Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.
Matt Reynolds came on to play shortstop in the bottom of the first inning. Cabrera didn't bat in the top of the first, so this is an odd one. There should be an update from the Mets within the hour.
Athletics recalled RHP Zach Neal from Triple-A Nashville.
Neal will start for the A's on Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners. He has a 2.53 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 21/4 K/BB ratio in 42 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level, but the 27-year-old isn't the most attractive fantasy streaming option versus Seattle. This might just be a spot start.
Athletics activated 2B Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list.
Lowrie wound up missing exactly 15 days with a bruised right shin. The second baseman returns Wednesday to a cool .302/.341/.345 batting line with 17 RBI in 32 games.
Matt Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday because his wife is about to have a baby.
It seemed odd that the Cards would rest their best left-handed hitter against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Now we have a good reason for the absence. Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth in the afternoon tilt at Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong will take a turn at leadoff.
