Anthony Rendon belted a three-run homer in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

He came to bat with two outs in the first inning with Jayson Werth on third base and Daniel Murphy on second. Rendon drove a Sam Gaviglio offering over the left center field wall for his eighth home run of the season. It was his only hit of the night. This comes after he hit two homers on Tuesday. Rendon struggled badly for the first few weeks of the season but then found his stroke. He now has a .277 batting average with 31 RBI. He has almost as many walks (25) as strikeouts (30) and that has resulted in a strong .378 on-base percentage.

Yankees placed OF Jacoby Ellsbury on the 7-day concussion disabled list

Ellsbury was diagnosed with a concussion and a neck sprain after he collided with the wall in the first inning of Wednesday's win over the Royals. There is no initial timetable for his recovery, but he will be reevaluated on Thursday and we should have a better idea of just how long he might be out as he becomes further removed from the initial concussion.

Trea Turner went 1-for-4 with two stolen bases, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

He reached base on an error in the first inning, stole second and came around to score the first of four Nationals' runs in the frame. He added an RBI single in the second inning and once again stole second but was left stranded that time. Turner has not hit as well this season as he did as a rookie but his speed has not diminished. He has a .242 batting average with four homers, 26 runs scored, 22 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 35 games.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said that Chris Heisey suffered his right bicep rupture while taking a dry swing in batting practice on Wednesday.

The Nationals placed Heisey on the disabled list earlier on Wednesday, but it was not initially clear just how he ruptured his bicep. Apparently, batting practice was the culprit. Heisey said that surgery is one potential option, though an exact course of action has not yet been determined. An MRI on Thursday should help to clarify matters. While no timetable has been laid out for his return as of yet, he is going to miss significant time.
May 24 - 10:01 PM

Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

He plated Kyle Seager with an RBI single in the first inning but that ended up being the only run his team would tally all night. Cano was playing in his second game since spending two weeks on the disabled list with a right quad strain. He has a .303 batting average with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 159 plate appearances.
May 24 - 10:01 PM

Sam Gaviglio gave up five runs -- only one was earned -- in six innings and was charged with a loss against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Things went south in a hurry as he surrendered four unearned runs in the first inning thanks to an error by shortstop Jean Segura. Gaviglio ended up allowing a three-run bomb to Anthony Rendon in the frame. He gave up six hits and two walks and managed only one strikeout in the ballgame. He has a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings and is getting a chance to start because four members of the Mariners' rotation are on the disabled list (Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton and Drew Smyly).

Pablo Sandoval (knee, illness) went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a walk during Wednesday's minor league rehab game at Triple-A Pawtucket.

So far, so good for Sandoval, who is expected to take part in another rehab game on Thursday. Everything would appear to be shaping up well on the health front, here, and assuming Sandoval does not suffer a setback, he could potentially rejoin the team next week. He has been on the shelf with a right knee strain since April 24.
May 24 - 9:15 PM

Huston Street (lat, shoulder) turned in a perfect inning of work in his minor league rehab game at Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

Street will likely have to make several more rehab appearances before the Angels are ready to activate him from the disabled list. Lat and shoulder injuries have kept him out for the entirety of the 2017 season to date. Until he is ready to return, Bud Norris will continue to close games for the Halos.
