Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that Chris Heisey suffered his right bicep rupture while taking a dry swing in batting practice on Wednesday.

The Nationals placed Heisey on the disabled list earlier on Wednesday, but it was not initially clear just how he ruptured his bicep. Apparently, batting practice was the culprit. Heisey said that surgery is one potential option, though an exact course of action has not yet been determined. An MRI on Thursday should help to clarify matters. While no timetable has been laid out for his return as of yet, he is going to miss significant time.

Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He plated Kyle Seager with an RBI single in the first inning but that ended up being the only run his team would tally all night. Cano was playing in his second game since spending two weeks on the disabled list with a right quad strain. He has a .303 batting average with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 159 plate appearances.

Sam Gaviglio gave up five runs -- only one was earned -- in six innings and was charged with a loss against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Things went south in a hurry as he surrendered four unearned runs in the first inning thanks to an error by shortstop Jean Segura. Gaviglio ended up allowing a three-run bomb to Anthony Rendon in the frame. He gave up six hits and two walks and managed only one strikeout in the ballgame. He has a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings and is getting a chance to start because four members of the Mariners' rotation are on the disabled list (Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton and Drew Smyly).

Pablo Sandoval (knee, illness) went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a walk during Wednesday's minor league rehab game at Triple-A Pawtucket.

So far, so good for Sandoval, who is expected to take part in another rehab game on Thursday. Everything would appear to be shaping up well on the health front, here, and assuming Sandoval does not suffer a setback, he could potentially rejoin the team next week. He has been on the shelf with a right knee strain since April 24.
May 24 - 9:15 PM

Huston Street (lat, shoulder) turned in a perfect inning of work in his minor league rehab game at Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

Street will likely have to make several more rehab appearances before the Angels are ready to activate him from the disabled list. Lat and shoulder injuries have kept him out for the entirety of the 2017 season to date. Until he is ready to return, Bud Norris will continue to close games for the Halos.
May 24 - 9:08 PM

Kolten Wong (elbow) is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Wong was forced out of action on Saturday due to mild discomfort in his left elbow. After sitting out several games to start the week, he will be back at second second base and is hitting eighth in Wednesday's contest. Mike Leake will take the ball for the Cards in this one, to be opposed by Rich Hill.
May 24 - 8:59 PM

J.A. Happ (elbow) will require between one and three minor league rehab starts before he is ready to rejoin the team.

Happ has been on the sidelines since April 17 with left elbow inflammation. While his rehab has been slow to come together, Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins said that he could potentially return to the team in 10-15 days.
May 24 - 8:38 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury left Wednesday's game against the Royals with a concussion and neck sprain.

Ellsbury made a fantastic catch on a deep Alcidies Escobar fly ball to lead off the game, before colliding with the center field wall. He stayed in for defense through to the end of the top of the first, but was subsequently replaced in the field by Aaron Hicks. This injury could potentially land him on the 7-day concussion disabled list. He will be reevaluated on Thursday.
