Javier Baez is batting leadoff for the Cubs on Wednesday night against the Giants.

A nice reward for his hot May. Baez has slashed .318/.338/.636 with six home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases, and 13 runs scored in 19 games since the calendar flipped from April. Ben Zobrist is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday against Giants lefty Matt Moore, as is Willson Contreras. Miguel Montero will catch.

James Shields (lat) threw a successful bullpen session Wednesday.

Shields felt good during and after the workout and is lined up for another side session on Friday. The veteran right-hander will begin simulated work after that, then head out on a minor league rehab assignment. If he can avoid setbacks, he could be an option for the White Sox rotation around mid-June.

Maikel Franco remains out of the Phillies' starting lineup on Wednesday.

That's back-to-back benchings for the 24-year-old third baseman, who's batting just .221/.281/.377 in 171 plate appearances this season. Andres Blanco is starting at the hot corner and hitting fifth on Wednesday night against the Rockies.

Rays recalled RHP Ryan Garton from Triple-A Durham.

Garton has allowed three runs on five hits and a walk over 2 1/3 innings this season out of the Tampa Bay bullpen. He'll work in a low-leverage role.
May 24 - 2:56 PM

Rays placed RHP Diego Moreno on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder bursitis.

It's not clear at this point how long he will be out. Moreno had rattled off three straight scoreless appearances out of the Tampa Bay bullpen.
May 24 - 2:54 PM

Orioles claimed INF Luis Sardinas off waivers from the Padres.

Sardinas was designated for assignment by San Diego on Sunday after batting just .163/.226/.163 over 53 plate appearances in a utility role. The 24-year-old owns a .229/.278/.293 career batting line at the major league level.
May 24 - 2:52 PM

Mariners optioned RHP Emilio Pagan to Triple-A Tacoma.

Pagan was needed for four innings of mop-up duty in Tuesday night's blowout loss to the Nationals. Robert Whalen will take his place Wednesday.
May 24 - 2:49 PM

Mariners recalled RHP Robert Whalen from Triple-A Tacoma.

Whalen was up for a day earlier this month but did not make an appearance. He holds a 4.09 ERA in 22 innings (four starts) at Triple-A Tacoma.
