Juan Nicasio allowed four runs -- one earned -- over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cubs.
The three unearned runs came in the third inning, when Andrew McCutchen couldn't corral a hot shot to center field by Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist followed with a three-run shot. It's possible that error on McCutchen gets changed to a hit for Rizzo. Nicasio, a popular fantasy sleeper this spring, stands 3-3 with a 3.16 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 32/15 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings with the Bucs. He gave up eight hits and walked three on Wednesday. A road start against the Reds is next.
Evan Gattis is not in the lineup for Wednesday's showdown with the Twins.
No injury to report here, just a regular day off for Gattis. Preston Tucker slides into the slugger's DH slot. Tucker is hitting sixth.
Tyson Ross (shoulder) still has not been cleared for throwing.
Ross has been on the disabled list since April 9 with inflammation in his right shoulder and there is no timetable for a possible activation date. "He's still doing his stabilization exercises, feeling good," Padres manager Andy Green said Wednesday. "That process is ongoing until they determine that it's time to pick up a ball and throw."
Jean Segura (hip) is out again Wednesday.
Segura also sat out Sunday and Tuesday with a nagging hip issue. It's thought to be minor. Phil Gosselin will start at second base and bat leadoff for Arizona on Wednesday night against Marlins ace Jose Fernandez.
Steven Matz fired 7 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Mets' 8-0 blanking of the Braves.
Matz didn't walk a batter, gave up just two hits -- both singles -- and struck out eight. The young left-hander struggled in his 2016 debut April 11 against the Marlins, but he has been absolutely sensational since. Matz will carry a 2.83 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Dodgers. He also boasts a 30/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.
Jhoulys Chacin served up eight earned runs in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Mets.
He gave up two runs in the second inning, four in the third, and was charged with two more in the fifth. Chacin had actually been pretty steady for the Braves entering Wednesday's start, but he watched his season ERA jump from 3.27 to 5.40 in just a couple of hours at Citi Field. He should be able to get back on the right track next time out against the Phillies.
Indians sent LHP Ross Detwiler outright to Triple-A Columbus.
Detwiler was designated for assignment by the Tribe at the end of April and accepted the Triple-A demotion after passing through waivers unclaimed. He had a 5.79 ERA in seven relief appearances this season for Cleveland.
Yankees recalled LHP James Pazos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Pazos had a 3.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 12 innings this season at the Triple-A level, but control remains a serious issue for the 24-year-old left-hander. He's walked 90 batters in 211 2/3 professional frames.
