Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will throw from 90 feet on Wednesday.
Alvarez threw from 75 feet on Tuesday and reported no issues. He will stretch out his catch session Wednesday as he works his way back from a July shoulder surgery. If the 26-year-old right-hander makes it through Wednesday without a setback, the A's will then determine the next step in his rehab.
Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) went 1-for-2 with a homer on Wednesday night at Double-A Trenton.
Rodriguez hit into a groundout in his first at-bat, but he swatted a two-run shot to dead center in his second trip to the plate to put Trenton up 6-0. A-Rod is due back in the Yankees' starting lineup Thursday after missing the last three weeks with a hamstring strain. He went 3-for-6 with three RBI on his two-game rehab assignment with the Trenton Thunder.
Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez has a non-displaced fracture in his right thumb.
Sanchez will hit the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre disabled list and be reevaluated via X-rays in two weeks. The 23-year-old backstop initially suffered the injury after taking a foul-tip to the thumb on Tuesday. The major league off-shoot of this is that the Yankees have little ammunition at the catcher position should Brian McCann or Austin Romine suffer any sort of injury.
X-rays taken on Brandon Belt's sprained left ankle came back negative.
Belt suffered the ankle injury on a slide into second base during Wednesday afternoon's win over the Padres. Giants manager Bruce Bochy described the injury as mild and the negative X-rays back that assertion. Belt said that he thinks he might be able to play against the Rockies (at Coors Field) on Friday.
T.J. McFarland (knee) will throw a simulated game on Friday or Saturday.
McFarland injured his left knee making a start for Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, but on the positive side, no structural damage was found when he underwent an MRI. Assuming his simulated game goes well, he could return to minor league action in relatively short order.
Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey (hernia) threw off flat ground on Wednesday.
Harvey underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia at the beginning of May. He was expected to miss 4-6 weeks at the time of the surgery, putting him in line for a return to the minors at some point in June. Injuries have been a concern for the 21-year-old right-hander early in his professional development. He missed all of 2015 due to elbow woes and a broken leg.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Brandon Belt suffered only a "mild" ankle sprain in Wednesday's win over the Padres.
Belt injured the ankle while sliding into second base in the eighth inning. He was able to walk off the field under his own power. After the game, Bochy said that it might take a few games for Belt to return to action, but there are no indications that this is any type of serious injury. He could maybe play Friday in Colorado.
J.J. Hardy continues to feel soreness in his fractured left foot.
Hardy underwent an X-ray last week, one which showed that his foot was healing up nicely. Manager Buck Showalter said on Wednesday that the veteran shortstop is still not to the point where he is ready to take part in any weight-bearing exercises, though. Hardy will head to the team's spring training complex in Sarasota to prepare for rehab work on Friday. He could return around mid-June if the soreness dissipates soon.
