Juan Uribe is in the Braves' lineup against the Dodgers Wednesday, batting fifth and playing third base.
Uribe didn't have to travel far after Wednesday's trade, simply walking to the Braves' locker room as the Dodgers host Uribe's new club. With Chris Johnson back soon Uribe will likely fill a part-time role with the Braves moving forward.
Sammy Solis (shoulder) threw off flat ground Wednesday.
Solis hit the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 18 with left shoulder inflammation. Given that he's still not throwing off a mound, it appears unlikely he'll be back when his 15 days are up.
Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves.
With lefty Alex Wood on the hill for the Braves, it appears manager Don Mattingly is simply playing the matchups. Chris Heisey started in right field for the Dodgers.
Red Sox transferred RHP Anthony Varvaro from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
Varvaro underwent season-ending elbow surgery on Tuesday. The right-hander posted an impressive 2.63 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 50/13 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings last year for the Braves, but he had a mess of a 2015 campaign.
Red Sox acquired OF Carlos Peguero from the Rangers for cash considerations.
Peguero was designated for assignment by Texas one week ago after batting .186/.310/.414 in 84 plate appearances. The 28-year-old outfielder is a .194/.262/.387 career hitter at the major league level.
Johnny Giavotella is not in the Angels' lineup Wednesday.
Giavotella has cooled off considerably after a hot first month and will take a seat against Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner. Grant Green is at second base.
Scott Kazmir left his start Wednesday against the Tigers after experiencing left shoulder tightness.
He worked three hitless innings before giving way to reliever Dan Otero. Kazmir had struggled in his last handful of starts, so it's safe to wonder whether this shoulder issue has been a lingering thing. The 31-year-old southpaw has a long, well-chronicled history of arm injuries. He was supposed to be trade bait this season for the struggling Athletics.
An MRI taken Tuesday on Dylan Bundy's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.
Good news. Bundy was given anti-inflammatory medication and should resume throwing in a couple of weeks. The young starter could still pitch for the Orioles at some point this season, though they may just opt to play it safe.
