Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Hale was decent in a spot start during Tuesday's doubleheader, allowing four runs in six innings versus the Dodgers. He should get another shot at some point.
Nationals optioned OF Matt den Dekker to Triple-A Syracuse.
Den Dekker was up as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader but didn't play. He returns to a .230/.299/.289 line at Syracuse.
Hunter Pence is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.
It appears to be a routine day off. Justin Maxwell is handling right field with Pence out.
Jake Peavy (back) will resume his rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Peavy had renewed back tightness after his last rehab start a week ago, but he got through a 40-pitch bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. He's slated for around 75 pitches on Saturday.
Brandon Crawford is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.
He's sitting against southpaw Francisco Liriano. Joaquin Arias is at shortstop in Crawford's place.
Brandon Belt is absent from the Giants' lineup Wednesday.
He's on the bench with the Pirates throwing lefty Francisco Liriano. Buster Posey is at first base, with Andrew Susac behind the plate.
Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.
It appears to simply be a day off. Garrett Jones is in right field while Beltran sits.
Starling Marte is not in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.
Marte is just getting a breather, as he's in the midst of a 0-for-20 slump. Jose Tabata is handling left field.
