Leonys Martin left Wednesday's game against the A's with a tweaked left hamstring.
Martin was replaced in center field by Shawn O'Malley to start the fourth inning. Prior to leaving with what the Mariners are deeming a minor injury, Martin had continued his recent hot-hitting ways with a third-inning RBI single and a stolen base. Seattle is labeling him day-to-day.
A.J. Ramos secured his 15th save of the year with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rays.
Ramos issued a one-out walk -- he now has 13 in just 20 innings this year -- but easily dispatched Corey Dickerson and Brandon Guyer to lock down the ninth. He now has a 1.80 ERA and a 10.80 K/9 on the year, and Ramos is 15-for-15 in save opportunities.
Evan Gattis had a two-run homer and a double to help the Astros edge the Orioles 4-3 on Wednesday.
Gattis made his second start of the year at catcher in this one. He's 11-for-31 with four homers since returning from the minors on May 16, so whether he's catching or DHing, he's going to be in the starting lineup most of the time for the foreseeable future.
Collin McHugh allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Orioles.
McHugh struck out 10, but he gave up eight hits, three of them coming before he was pulled in the sixth. McHugh has been a disappointment this year, but he's largely kept the Astros in games since getting absolutely blitzed in his season debut against the Yankees on April 6. He has a 4.30 ERA and a 48/11 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings since.
Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Rays.
Ozuna got on base three times, but did most of his damage with a two-RBI single that beat the Rays' shift. He had been left for dead after hitting .229/.297/.410 in April, but the 25-year-old has torn the cover off the baseball in the month of May. On the season, he now owns a .331/.378/.587 slash line with nine homers and 25 RBI in 185 plate appearances.
Jose Altuve went hitless in a fourth straight game Wednesday against the Orioles.
Altuve is 0-for-17 during his little funk. It's just the second time in his career that he's gone hitless in four straight starts. It also happened in May 2013. Since the beginning of 2014, he had gone hitless in three straight just one time (in May 2015).
Logan Morrison continued to tear the cover off the baseball, going 3-for-4 with a two-run homer against the Marlins on Wednesday.
Morrison is now 15-for-27 (.556) with three home runs in his last nine games, and he's now safely over the Mendoza Line with a .225 batting average. The 28-year-old remains non-relevant in fantasy leagues, aside from those hyperactive owners who try to stream every hot streak.
Hyun-soo Kim got a rare start over Joey Rickard on Wednesday and went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a walk against the Astros.
Ever since the season start, Kim has looked like the player the Orioles signed him to be. Maybe they should give him a real chance to show what he can do? He's 14-for-32 with three doubles, five walks and just two strikeouts in his very limited action.
