Joc Pederson (neck) is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Pederson was involved in a nasty outfield collision with Yasiel Puig on Tuesday, with both players crumpling to the ground after running into each other chasing a fly ball. While Puig is in the lineup and hitting eighth on Wednesday, Pederson will rest, as he is still experiencing soreness in his neck. Chris Taylor is manning center in his place.

Khris Davis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

Davis smacked a two-run home run off Edinson Volquez with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his 14th of the season, putting him one behind Yankees phenom Aaron Judge (15) for the MLB lead. Davis' power output is marvelous. His .220 batting average less so.
May 24 - 6:32 PM

Jed Lowrie went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Marlins.

Lowrie did a nice job giving the A's bullpen a little bit of insurance, bumping his crew to a 3-1 advantage with an RBI double in the fifth inning and increasing it to 4-1 with his RBI single in the seventh. He has been wielding a sizzling bat of late, having picked up 13 hits in his last 25 at-bats. In that space, he has doubled four times, homered twice and driven in six runs. He is slashing .300/.368/.488 with six homers and 15 RBI for the season as a whole.
May 24 - 6:28 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Ozuna's double off Sonny Gray (No. 8 on the season) was the only extra-base hit the Marlins could manage in the game. He struck out in his other three at-bats. The outfielder has notched two-baggers in each of his last two games and is now working on a five-game hitting streak. He is slashing .306/.377/.547 on the season.
May 24 - 6:21 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Quiet day for Stanton and a quiet offensive day for his team on the whole. Marlins batters struck out 13 times in the game, with 11 of those coming against Sonny Gray. For the season, the slugger is slashing .269/.335/.520 with 11 homers and 31 RBI through 45 games played.
May 24 - 6:21 PM

Sonny Gray was brilliant in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Marlins, surrendering just one run while striking out 11 over seven innings.

Gray allowed just three hits on the afternoon. The lone run to score on his watch came when Dee Gordon scored on a wild pitch in the fourth inning. After failing to strike out more than four in any of his first three starts, Gray has fanned 19 in his last two outings (covering 13 innings). He will look to build on Wednesday's brilliance when he carries his 3.34 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio into a road date with the Indians next time he takes to the mound.
May 24 - 6:18 PM

Edinson Volquez surrendered three runs on seven hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Volquez pitched fine in this one, but a lights-out Sonny Gray prevented him from picking up a win. The veteran right-hander struck out two and walked two on the afternoon, with two of the three runs on his line coming home on a two-run home run by Khris Davis in the first inning. Volquez will bring a 4.82 ERA and 1.67 WHIP into a home showdown with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.
May 24 - 6:17 PM

Pablo Sandoval (knee, illness) is expected to play in rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Sandoval is set to play seven innings on Wednesday and a full nine innings on Thursday. He has been fighting through illness during his rehab assignment, but looks to be very close to a return to the big league club now that he has been slated for back-to-back minor league rehab showings. The veteran third baseman has not played since April 24 due to a right knee strain.
