Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.
It's just a day off with the Fish having a day game after a night game. Jeff Mathis is behind the plate Wednesday in Salty's place.
Jesse Crain (biceps) has yet to appear in an extended spring training game.
Crain is throwing off a mound but has yet to be cleared for game action. He'll eventually have to go on a rehab assignment after getting into some games at the Astros' spring training complex. Crain had been hoping for an early-to-mid-May return, and it's looking like he'll at least be on the latter end of that timetable.
Astros outfield prospect Delino DeShields Jr. was scheduled to resume baseball activities on Tuesday.
DeShields was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of his right cheekbone after being hit by a pitch last Friday. The Astros are unsure when he'll return to action. "With a non displaced fracture, sometimes those things can heal up pretty quickly," general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "We’ll wait and see. He’s going to start some activities as tolerated."
Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) could rejoin the Rockies' rotation as soon as April 29.
The Rockies indicated Monday that Chacin would likely need two more rehab starts, but now they're thinking just one could be enough. He'll start for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday before being re-evaluated. "It's hard to say if he's going to take one more start or two more starts," manager Walt Weiss said. "We'll see how it goes. I think Jhoulys is in a good spot, but we want to be smart about this, too. This is basically his spring training."
Wandy Rodriguez had his right knee drained Monday before throwing a bullpen session.
"We're going to give that a couple days to settle down, then he'll throw a bullpen, and we'll move forward as he's capable of moving forward," said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. Hurdle added that it's "unclear" how long Rodriguez might be sidelined. "It depends on the guy. It depends on the age, what's involved. We'll just have to wait and see," the skipper said.
Royals released RHP Cory Wade.
Wade had been with Triple-A Omaha, where he allowed 10 runs -- nine earned -- over his first 12 1/3 innings. The 30-year-old will now look to latch on elsewhere.
Justin Upton is not in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.
Upton has struck out nine times in his last 13 at-bats, so it was a good time to get him a breather. Ryan Doumit is in left field Wednesday in Upton's place. B.J. Upton and Evan Gattis are also sitting out, with Jordan Schafer and Gerald Laird covering center field and catcher, respectively.
Jacoby Ellsbury was seen in the clubhouse after Tuesday's game with his right calf wrapped but insisted it was just "maintenance."
It's notable because Ellsbury missed a few spring training games with tightness in the same calf. At this point it appears to be nothing to worry about, but it's something to keep an eye on going forward.
