Byron Buxton homered as part of a three-hit night on Wednesday at Triple-A Rochester.

Buxton has 17 hits over his last 10 games at the Triple-A level and is now batting .333/.394/.576 with five home runs and four stolen bases in 24 games since his late-April demotion. The dynamic center field prospect should be back in the majors within the next couple of weeks and seems poised for much better results in what will be his third cup of coffee. Buxton opened the 2016 season with a brutal .156/.208/.289 batting line in 49 plate appearances for Minnesota.

Leonys Martin (hamstring) only expects to miss a couple of games.

Martin was lifted from Wednesday's defeat of the Athletics after tweaking his left hamstring while running the bases in the bottom of the third inning. "They decided to take me out of the game to be smart," the hot-hitting center fielder said late Wednesday. "But I hope to be back in a few days. We've got a day off tomorrow and we'll see. This is the first time I've had this happen, but it'll be all right."

Adam Lind went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI to help propel the Mariners past the A's 13-3 on Wednesday.

Between his steady track record and the Mariners' fine start, Lind hasn't lost playing time to Dae Ho Lee at first base. He really should consider himself lucky, given that he entered the night with a .216/.246/.319 line. Of course, even if Lee does seem capable, Lind was always the better bet as a starter against righties. He should be solid from here on out.

Hisashi Iwakuma surrendered three runs over seven innings Wednesday versus the A's.

Iwakuma beat the A's for the second time this month to run his record to 3-4 with a 4.33 ERA. He has an even tastier matchup with a start against the Padres due up next.

Making his first major league start, Zach Neal was pounded for seven runs in four innings by the Mariners on Wednesday.

Neal is a solid Triple-A pitcher, but that's probably all he is. He's probably going to be sent back to Nashville now.

Scott Kazmir held the Reds to one run in six innings and struck out 12 as the Dodgers beat the Reds 3-1 on Wednesday.

It doesn't mean that Kazmir's back, but it's a good sign. The only run to score against him came on a triple (near inside-the-park homer) from Jay Bruce that could have been caught by Joc Pederson. Kazmir went without allowing a homer for the first time in five starts this month. He's 4-3 with a 4.84 ERA.
May 26 - 1:25 AM

Dan Straily fanned 11 while allowing three runs and three hits over seven innings Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Straily allowed just five batters to reach base safely in his seven innings. Unfortunately, four of those came in the same inning, leading to two runs, and the other was a homer an inning later. Straily has been a very good starter for the Reds to date, but since he's in such a bad situation in Cincinnati, there's no recommending him in mixed leagues.

Yasmani Grandal hit his fourth homer Wednesday against the Reds.

Grandal had been in a 2-for-33 slump while dealing with his frequent off days and a recent minor ankle injury. He's been awfully slump-prone throughout his career, partly due to playing through physical issues, but he can also look like an elite catcher at times.
