Nelson Cruz is not in the Mariners' lineup Wednesday at Nationals Park.

There is no DH available, so Cruz will operate as a bench weapon for manager Scott Servais. Ben Gamel is starting in right field and batting fifth versus Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark.
May 24 - 3:31 PM

Pablo Sandoval (knee, illness) is back in the lineup at Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday.

Sandoval was held out Tuesday night with a stomach bug. He still needs to play in back-to-back games at Pawtucket before the Red Sox consider activating him from the disabled list. Sandoval has been out since April 24 because of a right knee strain.
May 24 - 3:28 PM

Yasmany Tomas was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday due to tightness in his left hip flexor.

Daniel Descalso will start in left field and bat fifth versus White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. Tomas is day-to-day for now.
May 24 - 3:21 PM

Sam Travis is starting at first base and batting seventh Wednesday night against the Rangers.

It'll be the 23-year-old's major league debut. Travis was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday and should draw regular starts against left-handers.
May 24 - 3:16 PM

Tyson Ross (shoulder) could make his Rangers debut next weekend against the Astros.

Ross looked excellent in his first rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock, yielding only two hits over five scoreless innings. He'll start for Round Rock again on Monday, with the goal of making it six innings, and then we should see the right-hander back in the bigs for the first time since Opening Day in 2016. Ross is a worthwhile stash in deeper mixed fantasy leagues coming off October 2016 surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. He registered a 3.07 ERA and 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings with the Padres between 2013-2015.
May 24 - 3:12 PM

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.
May 24 - 3:03 PM

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.
