Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Shelby Miller is dealing with discomfort in a finger on his right hand.

Miller jammed the finger against the pitching mound in San Diego during a start at Petco Park back in April. He's still scheduled to take his next turn Sunday at home against the Padres, but a disabled list stint may be coming (whether he actually needs it or not) if things go poorly in that outing. Miller has a hideous 7.09 ERA, 1.86 WHIP, and 30/29 K/BB ratio through his first 45 2/3 innings with Arizona.

Marlins recalled RHP Nick Wittgren from Triple-A New Orleans.

Wittgren will give the Fish some much-needed bullpen depth while setup man Bryan Morris recovers from a herniated disc in his back. Wittgren has allowed five hits, four walks, and two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings this season at the major league level.

Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lumbar disc herniation.

Nick Wittgren has been called up from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding roster move. Morris also dealt with back problems in 2015 and doesn't carry an exact recovery timetable. It could be a while. He had registered a 3.06 ERA through 17 2/3 innings this year out of the Miami bullpen.

Christian Yelich (back) is out again Thursday.

This will be the fifth game in a row that Yelich has missed with what the Marlins originally labeled back spasms. It's probably something a little more serious than that. Derek Dietrich is starting in left field in a very patchwork lineup for the Fish on Thursday afternoon against the Rays.
May 26 - 10:52 AM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Rays.

Stanton also sat out Wednesday after complaining of soreness in his right side. He has been struggling offensively since a collision with teammate Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. All of this seems related.

Alex Wood has been scratched from his scheduled start Friday against the Mets due to triceps tightness.

Dodgers top pitching prospect Julio Urias is going to get the call from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill in. Wood hopes to jump back into the rotation for Monday's series opener at Wrigley Field. He was terrific on his last turn, racking up 13 strikeouts last Sunday against the Padres.
May 26 - 10:45 AM

Dodgers top pitching prospect Julio Urias will make his major league debut Friday against the Mets.

Here we go. Urias has been regarded as one of the top young pitching talents in baseball since age 16 and he will debut Friday night at Citi Field at the age of 19. The left-hander was sporting a dominant 1.10 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, and 44/8 K/BB ratio through 41 innings this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll be filling in Friday for Alex Wood, who has been scratched due to left triceps tightness. It's not clear what the plan is beyond Friday's game.
May 26 - 10:35 AM

Welington Castillo will get a day of rest Thursday.

Chris Herrmann is starting at catcher and batting sixth in the matinee versus Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole. Castillo should return to the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Padres. He has an .810 OPS, seven home runs, and 20 RBI in 36 games this season.
