James McCann is not in the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

It's simply a day of rest with it being a day game after a night game. Bryan Holaday is behind the dish in McCann's place.

Jose Iglesias (knee) remained out of the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

He's now missed four straight starts with a sore left knee. Iglesias remains day-to-day. Dixon Machado is filling in at shortstop Wednesday.

Alex Wilson will start on Wednesday versus the Athletics.

Kyle Ryan wasn't able to get to the ballpark in time, forcing Wilson to come in from the bullpen for a spot start. Ryan figures to arrive at some point during the game, so it basically could just wind up being he and Wilson flip-flopping the order in which they pitch.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Angels have acquired Kirk Nieuwenhuis from the Mets in a trade.

Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment last week and the Mets had been working on a deal to move him elsewhere. It's not clear at this point what New York will receive in return, but it surely won't be much. Nieuwenhuis is a career .230/.302/.374 hitter over parts of four seasons.

Diamondbacks pitching prospect Wei-Chieh Huang punched out eight hitters Tuesday in his debut for Low-A Kane County.

The 21-year-old tossed 5 2/3 shutout innings, limiting Quad Cities to two hits and one walk. Huang's changeup is already major-league-ready but he's still working to fill out the rest of his repertoire. Arizona signed Huang in July after watching him pitch at the National Taiwan University of Physical and Sport.

Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

Semien has just three hits over his last 27 at-bats and has really struggled defensively, so the A's are giving him a breather. Eric Sogard is handling shortstop in his place.

Astros pitching prospect Vincent Velasquez posted eight strikeouts Tuesday in a win for Double-A Corpus Christi.

Velasquez limited Northwest Arkansas to three hits and one walk over five scoreless frames. The 22-year-old has made the most of his first stint in Double-A, recording a brilliant 1.40 ERA over his first 19 1/3 innings. Opponents have hit just .200 during that span. Corpus Christi has been pretty conservative with the right-hander's workload. He hasn't pitched more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his four starts.

Mets pitching prospect Steven Matz scattered three hits over seven shutout innings Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Matz, who also clubbed two hits in the victory, now leads all minor league pitchers with 68 strikeouts. Tuesday was one of his most efficient outings as Matz needed just 77 pitches to dispose of Colorado Springs. The 23-year-old owns the second-lowest ERA (1.99) in the Pacific Coast League and the third-lowest WHIP (1.04). He's working hard to improve his changeup. The 6'2" left-hander already offers a plus fastball and a decent breaking pitch.
