Tanner Roark held the Mets to two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings but took a loss on Wednesday.

Roark got zero run support from the Nationals offense, falling to 3-4 on the year. He does have a 2.71 ERA in 63 innings (10 starts) this season, and he's whiffed 58 batters in 63 innings. The right-hander will hope for better luck next time out against the Phillies.

Rockies activated RHP Jason Motte from the 15-day disabled list.

Motte will finally join the Colorado bullpen on Wednesday after missing the first eight weeks of the season with a shoulder strain. He had a 3.18 ERA and five strikeouts in 5 2/3 minor league rehab innings.
May 25 - 4:00 PM

Rockies placed LHP Boone Logan on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation.

Shoulder injuries are always tricky, so it's not worth guessing how long he might be out. Jason Motte has been activated in a corresponding move and will take over the vacant spot in the Rockies' bullpen.
May 25 - 3:58 PM

Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday with renewed neck discomfort.

He has three homers in nine career at-bats against the Blue Jays' starter, Marco Estrada, so it's a big absence. Teixeira is considered day-to-day for now.
May 25 - 3:56 PM

Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) will play another rehab game with Double-A Trenton on Wednesday.

And then he should be activated on Thursday. A-Rod went 2-for-4 with two singles and an RBI in his rehab debut Tuesday at the Double-A level. He's been on the disabled list since May 4 with a hamstring strain.
May 25 - 3:54 PM

Steven Matz worked eight scoreless innings Wednesday in the Mets' 2-0 defeat of the Nationals.

Matz carved his way through the Bryce Harper-less lineup in Washington, yielding just four hits and a walk while striking out seven. He did actually face Harper in a pinch-hit situation in the bottom of the eighth and got him to ground out. Matz, 24, boasts a 7-1 record, 2.36 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 50/9 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings (eight starts) this season. He'll look to stay ace-like next time out against the White Sox.
May 25 - 3:51 PM

Nick Ahmed (head) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Ahmed took a pitch off his chin on Tuesday night but came away with nothing more than some minor cuts. He is batting leadoff Wednesday versus lefty Jeff Locke.
May 25 - 3:47 PM

Orioles RHP prospect Matthew Grimes scattered five hits over seven scoreless frames Tuesday in a win for High-A Frederick.

The 24-year-old is 3-0 with a 0.44 ERA over his last three starts. He owns the Carolina League's second-lowest ERA at 1.39 and is tied for the league lead with six wins. As encouraging as those numbers sound, they don't tell the whole story. Opponents have hit .255 against Grimes and his strikeout rate isn't what you'd expect from a top of the rotation arm (5.57 K/9). With a fastball that tops out in the low 90s, Grimes will really need to locate his pitches if he wants to make it to the next level.
