Red Sox pitching prospect Henry Owens carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning Tuesday for Triple-A Pawtucket.
Unfortunately the PawSox hung him out to dry by getting shut out. The 22-year-old has posted a stellar 2.39 ERA over his last four starts and now ranks sixth in the International League with 69 strikeouts. He also leads the league with 48 walks, a number he'll have to cut down on if he wants to make the big leagues.
Sonny Gray remains hospitalized due to "severe gastroenteritis," according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
The illness has dragged on longer than expected, but it's possible Gray could be discharged later Wednesday or Thursday. His status for his next scheduled start on Sunday remains up in the air, so the A's are keeping Chris Bassitt around in case he's needed again.
Shane Robinson left Wednesday's game against the Reds after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.
Robinson stayed in to run the bases after being pelted by the Johnny Cueto offering, but he appeared to be in a lot of pain so it's no surprise he eventually exited. It's unclear whether he'll need to have X-rays.
The Yankees will examine Carlos Beltran (rib cage) prior to Wednesday's game before determining whether he needs a stint on the disabled list.
The Yanks will promote outfielder Taylor Dugas on Wednesday as protection for Beltran, but they could send down a reliever if they think Beltran will be ready in a few days. For what it's worth, the veteran outfielder felt after suffering a rib cage injury Tuesday that he wouldn't need a trip to the DL.
Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.
It appears to simply be a day of rest. Daniel Descalso is at shortstop with Tulo out.
ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Angels assistant general manager Matt Klentak is expected to be promoted to general manager.
That's assuming Jerry Dipoto leaves, which is expected even though FOX Sports' Jon Morosi has reported that owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino are making a last-ditch effort to keep him. A resolution is expected later Wednesday.
White Sox optioned RHP Junior Guerra to Triple-A Charlotte.
Guerra surrendered three runs over four relief innings during his time with the big club. He'll return to a 3.00 ERA at Charlotte.
White Sox activated LHP Dan Jennings from the 15-day disabled list.
Jennings missed nearly a month with a neck injury. He holds a disappointing 7.83 ERA over 22 appearances this season for the White Sox.
