Carlos Beltran (hamstring) is absent from Wednesday's lineup versus the Rangers.

It's no surprise after Beltran was removed from Tuesday's game with a tight right hamstring. The Yankees are calling him day-to-day after an MRI came back clean, so a weekend return is possible if he shows enough progress. Aaron Hicks is starting in right field Wednesday while Alex Rodriguez serves as the DH.

Hanley Ramirez is considered day-to-day with an injury to his right side.

Ramirez tweaked something on a swing in the sixth inning on Wednesday against the Rays and was eventually pulled from the game. Hopefully it's not an oblique injury, but at least the Red Sox have an off day on Thursday. We should know more on Friday.

Matt Moore fired seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

It was an impressive start against a good lineup. Moore allowed just three hits, all of them singles in the sixth inning. But he managed to wiggle out of the jam and keep the Red Sox off the board. The southpaw walked a pair and struck out six in the victory and now sits at 4-5 with a 4.67 ERA on the year. He’ll try to keep the momentum going in a start against the Angels next week.

Phillies prospect right-hander Mark Appel had surgery Wednesday to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.

Appel is done for the year, but he's expected to be ready for spring training next year. The 2013 No. 1 overall pick had a 4.46 ERA and 34/20 K/BB ratio in 38 1/3 innings with Triple-A Lehigh Valley before hitting the disabled list with a right shoulder strain in late May. His stock continues to fade.

Royals placed OF Lorenzo Cain on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Yet another injury for the defending World Series champions. Cain hurt his hamstring while trying to leg out an infield single on Wednesday. The severity of the strain isn't yet clear. Brett Eibner will take his place on the active roster.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel worked out for the Astros.

Rosenthal notes that Gurriel posted a picture on Instagram of him in an Astros hat, though this doesn't mean that a deal is imminent. The 32-year-old has also reportedly had workouts with the Dodgers and Mets in recent days. He'd likely require some time in the minors to shake the rust, but he could be a factor in the majors in the second half.
Jun 29 - 1:44 PM

Yunel Escobar (knee) remains out of the Angels' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that Escobar will remain sidelined until at least Friday. If he's not ready by then, he'll likely be facing a backdated trip to the disabled list. Escobar hasn't played since last Thursday due to a bone bruise in his knee. Jefry Marte will continue to fill in at third base.
Jun 29 - 1:19 PM

DJ LeMahieu (knee) is out of the Rockies' lineup again Wednesday.

LeMahieu appeared as a defensive replacement Tuesday and hoped to make it back to the starting lineup Wednesday, but the Rockies apparently don't want to rush things. Daniel Descalso will continue to fill in at second base.
Jun 29 - 1:13 PM

Trevor Story is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Story went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup Tuesday. With the quick turnaround, the Rockies are likely just being cautious about his injured finger. Cristhian Adames is playing shortstop and batting second.
Jun 29 - 1:12 PM

Billy Hamilton exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs in the bottom of the first inning after he was hit in the head by a fly ball.

Adam Duvall and Hamilton were both going after a fly ball off the bat of Anthony Rizzo and the ball ultimately hit Hamilton in the head/face and resulted in an inside-the-park homer. Hamilton was on the ground for a couple of minutes before eventually walking off the field through the bullpen. The Reds will surely send him for tests to rule out a concussion. Tyler Holt replaced him in center field.

Yankees signed first-round pick OF Blake Rutherford.

Rutherford, a high school outfielder, was selected No. 18 overall in this month's draft. Jim Callis of MLB.com hears that he signed for $3,282,000, which is well above the slot value of $2,441,600 for the pick. The 19-year-old was among the best bats in this year's class and could prove to be a steal for New York. He's slated to report to the team's GCL affiliate to begin his pro career.
