Andrelton Simmons is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Twins.
He's just getting the day off. Ramiro Pena will fill in at shortstop.
Justin Upton is not in the Braves' lineup Wednesday against the Twins.
The Braves have a scheduled off-day on Thursday, so Upton will essentially get two days to recharge his batteries. Jordan Schafer will start in left field.
Brian McCann is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Twins.
He'll take a seat with the day game after the night game. Evan Gattis, who hit a game-tying homer on Tuesday, will start behind the dish.
Clayton Richard (illness) gave up two runs in six innings Tuesday in his second minor league rehab start with Triple-A Tucson.
Richard, out since May 4 with an intestinal virus, gave up five hits and no walks while striking out four. The southpaw threw 65 out of 94 pitches for strikes. It should be enough for the Padres to activate him from the disabled list.
Twins transferred OF Darin Mastroianni from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot for Chris Colabello on the 40-man roster. Mastroianni is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a bone chip on his left ankle and will be sidelined until the second half of the season.
Twins purchased the contract of 1B/3B Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester.
Colabello, who had a strong performance for Italy during the World Baseball Classic, was hitting .358/.417/.659 with 12 home runs, 39 RBI and a 1.076 OPS through 46 games this season in Triple-A. The 29-year-old played seven seasons in the Canadian-American Association, so he makes for a tremendous story.
Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion.
Plouffe took a knee to the head Tuesday night when he tried to break up a double play with a slide at second base. He'll need to be cleared by MLB doctors before returning to action. The Twins have called up Chris Colabello to take his spot on the active roster.
Rafael Betancourt (groin) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.
Betancourt left Tuesday's game with a tight right groin, an issue which has lingering since late April. He's hoping to avoid the disabled list, but the Rockies may decide that a couple of weeks of rest is the best course of action. Rex Brothers is the likely favorite for saves if Betancourt needs to miss time, but Wilton Lopez could also figure in.
