Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Mariners offered Kendrys Morales a three-year, $30 million extension after last year's All-Star break.

Knowing what he knows now, Morales surely would have accepted the offer. The M's also extended Morales a qualifying offer after the season and had multiple talks over the winter about a deal, but the first baseman/DH remains a free agent. At this point, Morales seems likely to wait until after the draft to sign so the team that gets him won't lose a first-round pick.

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

Braun has taken some ugly swings so far in the series against the Cardinals, as it appears his thumb might be bothering him again. Logan Schafer is getting the start in right field against Joe Kelly.

Derek Jeter (quad) is not in the lineup in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Jeter probably wasn't going to play in both games, so it makes sense to rest him in the afternoon tilt. It will be the third straight contest he's missed with a sore quad, but he should be back in there this evening. Dean Anna is getting another start at shortstop.

Juan Carlos Oviedo (elbow) will be re-evaluated after his next rehab appearance with Triple-A Durham on Thursday.

Rays manager Joe Maddon indicated on Monday that Oviedo was about a week away, but it sounds like he could be a possibility for this weekend. The reliever figures to begin in middle relief but could eventually work his way into a setup role.

Jeremy Hellickson's first bullpen session since arthroscopic elbow surgery has been pushed back a few days.

Hellickson had been slated for his first mound work on Tuesday. It doesn't appear that he's had a setback, so it could just be a weather issue. Hellickson is aiming to rejoin the Rays' rotation in late May or early June.

Starling Marte is not in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.

It appears to just be a day off. Jose Tabata is taking Marte's spot in left field, with Travis Snider covering right.
Apr 16 - 9:52 AM

Welington Castillo is not in the Cubs' lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

John Baker will catch Jason Hammel, but Castillo will surely be back out there to catch Travis Wood during the nightcap.
Apr 16 - 9:49 AM
Jay Bruce - OF - Reds

Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' lineup Wednesday.

Bruce is getting a breather against tough left-hander Francisco Liriano. Chris Heisey is starting in his place in right field. Devin Mesoraco is also sitting out, with Brayan Pena getting the start behind the dish.
