Padres placed RHP Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list with a right lat strain.

The good news is that an MRI revealed that the injury is just a strain and not something more serious that would require surgery. Andrew Cashner is the most likely candidate to fill in as the Padres' closer in Street's absence, and should be picked up immediately in all formats.

Khris Davis hit two home runs and went 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored on Wednesday.

Davis hit a solo homer in the first inning off Yu Darvish, then smoked a two-run blast off Matt Bush in the eighth. He added a double for the third hit. He sports an unusual .256/.294/.514 slash line due to a very low walk rate and a high strikeout rate. But it was the home runs his owners were after when they drafted Khris Davis. He has 25 longballs with 48 runs and 67 RBI.

Freddie Freeman had an absolute monster day at the plate on Wednesday, going 4-for-4 with a homer and five RBI to lead the Braves in a 9-7 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

Freeman came through with run-scoring singles in each of the first two innings, then clubbed a two-run homer in the fourth to increase the Braves' early advantage to 7-0. He added an RBI double in the sixth to provide a valuable insurance run. Freeman also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in all five of his plate appearances, and swiped his fourth base of the season. With the four-hit attack, he raised his season slash to .280/.363/.517 to go with 18 homers and 41 RBI.

Yasmany Tomas had a monster day at the dish on Wednesday, blasting a pair of home runs and plating five as the Diamondbacks routed the Brewers 8-1 at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Tomas capped off a five-run uprising off of Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson in the first inning with a three-run shot. He inflicted more damage in the fifth inning, with a two-run homer to chase Nelson from the ballgame. Tomas finished the night 2-for-5, raising his season slash to .262/.305/.477 to go with 17 homers and 42 RBI in what has been a breakout season offensively.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Jeurys Familia will not be available for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Familia has pitched in back-to-back games. Wednesday's was an outright disaster, as he entered in the ninth with the Mets holding a 4-3 lead over the Cardinals only to surrender a game-tying RBI double to Yadier Molina and a go-ahead RBI double to Kolten Wong. The Mets lost 5-4. Thursday's forced off-day should just be considered a breather for Familia, who had not blown a save opportunity prior to Wednesday's meltdown. Addison Reed will handle any save chance that might come the team's way on Thursday.

Lance McCullers matched his season high with 10 strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball in an impressive victory over the Yankees on Wednesday.

The right-hander scattered five hits and a pair of walks over his six frames. The only blemish on his evening came on a solo home run by Brian McCann in the fourth inning. McCullers has now struck out 10 batters four different times this season, including each of his last two starts. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Blue Jays at home on Tuesday.

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.

Gerrit Cole allowed only one run in a masterful 10-1 complete game victory over the Mariners on Wednesday.

He struck out six batters without walking any and held the Mariners to only three base hits in the entire game. He was able to go the distance on only 94 pitches, 70 of which were strikes. The stellar victory moves him to 6-6 with a 2.78 ERA on the season. He has fanned 73 batters against 23 walks in 87 1/3 innings. Perhaps most impressively he has surrendered only three home runs on the season.

Pirates prospect Steven Brault will start against the Brewers on Friday.

Brault has made one start with the big league team this season, yielding two runs (one earned) against the Cardinals on July 5. In a larger sample, the 24-year-old southpaw holds a 2.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 66/22 K/BB ratio in 11 appearances -- 10 starts -- covering 50 1/3 innings with Triple-A Indianapolis. He draws a nice matchup against the Brewers and makes for a playable DFS option this weekend.

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to a right hamstring strain.

Gomez was replaced in the field by Jake Marisnick in the top of the third inning. The speedy outfielder did not outwardly look hobbled early in the game, but either the Astros saw something or Gomez himself complained of discomfort. Either way, expect him to be reevaluated on Thursday. A trip to the disabled list is one possible outcome here given the notorious uncertainty surrounding any sort of hamstring injury.

Jose Reyes (intercostal strain) will not play until Friday at the earliest.

Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. He was administered an anti-inflammatory shot on Tuesday night. In terms of silver linings, Reyes at least avoided re-breaking the rib he fractured during the opening week of the 2015 season. He initially feared that Tuesday's injury might be a case of history repeating itself.

Dan Straily pitched well in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants, surrendering one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Straily struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He will be able to tell his grandchildren about this one, as he out-pitched potential NL Cy Young winner Madison Bumgarner in order to secure the win. The only run to score on his watch came when Conor Gillaspie rocked a solo homer to right in the bottom of the third inning. With this marvelous outing under his belt, Straily now holds a 3.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP for the season as a whole. He will look to repeat Wednesday's result in a home start against the Cardinals next time out.
