Jim Adduci (oblique) started in left field and went 1-for-3 in his second rehab game Wednesday with Triple-A Toledo.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has said that Adduci will get 30-40 at-bats in the minors before returning to the active major league roster. He's also going to see some action in center field while he's on the farm. The 32-year-old has been on the disabled list since May 11 because of a strained right oblique muscle.

Chris Tillman (family) might not make his scheduled start Friday against the Rays.

Tillman's wife Christina is due with the couple's first child, so the Orioles right-hander flew back to Baltimore from Toronto on Wednesday evening. If the baby arrives on Friday, the expectation is that Dylan Bundy will start the series opener versus the Rays at Camden Yards. Bundy is on extra rest anyway as the O's attempt to manage his workload.

Chris Beck (leg) worked two scoreless innings of relief on Wednesday night against the Yankees.

Beck had been unavailable since taking a Khris Davis comebacker off his left leg during an appearance Sunday versus Oakland. The righty reliever owns a solid 3.23 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 30 2/3 innings (27 appearances) since joining the White Sox bullpen in late April.

Carlos Gomez (back) struck out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday in the Rangers' loss to the Indians.

Gomez was held out of the starting lineup for the second night in a row due to a sore back. He could make a full return to center field for Thursday afternoon's series finale at Cleveland's Progressive Field.

Gary Sanchez told reporters late Wednesday that his groin injury is "getting better every day."

Sanchez has been bothered by groin tightness for going on two weeks and he's been taking it easy on the base paths, but the young slugger will remain in the Yankees' starting lineup and try to continue playing through the discomfort. "[Yankees manager Joe Girardi] told me to be smart running so you don’t get hurt again," Sanchez said after Wednesday's blowout victory in Chicago.

Tyler Flowers left Wednesday night's game against the Padres due to a welt on his left forearm.

Flowers was struck on the arm by a 93.2 mph fastball in the sixth inning. "It kind of freaked me out a little bit," he said after the 7-4 loss at Petco Park. "You hear stories about breaking your arm and it just being numb. But I was able to move it around. I think it looked a lot worse than it was. Not that it feels good, but it did look pretty grotesque." Atlanta's medical staff determined that there was no need for an X-ray. Flowers is considered day-to-day.

Addison Russell (shoulder) could return to the Cubs' starting lineup Thursday.

Russell hasn't started a game since exiting Sunday's series finale against the Marlins with right shoulder discomfort, but he did pinch-hit on Monday and Tuesday. It's clearly not an overly serious injury. Cubs manager Joe Maddon needs Russell active now more than ever with Kris Bryant (ankle) and Ben Zobrist (wrist) both sidelined.

Scott Kazmir (hip) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session in front of Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt on Thursday at Angel Stadium.

Kazmir worked three innings of one-run ball in his first minor league rehab game Monday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga and met up with the Dodgers in Anaheim on Wednesday for a reevaluation from the team's medical and coaching staffs. He's probably going to need another three or four successful rehab starts before becoming an option for the major league rotation. The veteran lefty has been out all year due to a hip injury and general arm fatigue.
