Colby Lewis (elbow) is scheduled to start a throwing program in January.

Lewis, who is coming off of surgery to correct a torn flexor tendon in his throwing elbow, is aiming to rejoin the Rangers' rotation around the All-Star break or possible sooner. "I'll start throwing in January, when I would normally do it," Lewis said. "We set expectations at the All-Star break, but those are very cautious. It's all based on how I feel. If I feel good before that, I'll pitch. We'll take each step based on how I feel."

Buster Posey hit a walk-off two-run homer in the ninth inning to send the Giants to a 4-2 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday.

It was his second career walk-off homer. The catcher finished 3-for-5 with three RBI. Posey hit his 16th and 17th home runs on Tuesday, and his 18th tonight -- he's one of many pro batters that practices gratitude for the existence of Rockies' pitchers. During his seven-game hitting streak, Posey is 15-for-31 (.484) with five homers and 10 RBI.

Clayton Kershaw surrendered only an unearned run across eight innings, striking out 10, in Wednesday's 3-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Kershaw scattered six hits and walked two. The left-hander has now worked seven innings or more in 14 straight starts. He's given up more than three earned runs just once all season, remarkable consistency that is summed up in a gorgeous 1.73 ERA. Kershaw (16-3) welcomes the Nationals to Southern California next time around.

Rusney Castillo has obtained a work visa and is eligible to play in games.

There was some question as to whether he would have the visa prior to the minor league seasons coming to a close, but the Red Sox will now be able to sneak him into a few games before the end of August if so desired. The 27-year-old Cuban outfielder is expected to make his major league debut sometime in September. He inked a record seven-year, $72.5 million contract last week.

Scott Van Slyke exited Wednesday's game with a mild right ankle sprain.

The injury looked bad, but the Dodgers made sure to say it is a mild sprain. He's being considered day-to-day.

Grady Sizemore belted a pinch-hit, go-ahead two-run home run in the sixth inning of Wednesday's win against the Nationals.

Thanks to Sizemore, the Phillies polished off a series sweep of the NL East-leading Nationals. Sizemore's blast put the Phillies up 5-4, a lead they never relented. It's only his second home run as a Phillie, and he has knocked in nine runs with a .307/.342/.474 slash line in 120 plate appearances. Sizemore's playing time is a day-to-day decision for manager Ryne Sandberg, who will juggle at least five outfielders for three spots through the remainder of the season.

David Price was chased from Wednesday's start with no outs in the third inning, allowing eight runs, in a loss to the Yankees.

It was a nightmare for Price in the third inning, as he allowed nine consecutive hits to the Yankees in an eight-run frame. Overall, Price yielded 12 hits and a walk while punching out three. Though he was booed by the home crowd, Price has otherwise pitched well for the Tigers since joining the team at the trade deadline, but Wednesday's outing bumps his Tigers ERA up to 4.41. Price will try to bounce back on Monday in Cleveland against the Indians.

Yadier Molina caught six innings and went 2-for-3 with a double in his first rehab start with Double-A Springfield on Wednesday.

Molina has made incredible progress from the torn ligament in his right thumb, and despite Wednesday being his first game action the Cardinals are optimistic about his ability to return to the big club shortly. Molina could be back in St. Louis by Friday at the earliest.

Jorge Soler homered in his first major league plate appearance and added an RBI single later, finishing 2-for-4 overall, as the Cubs were defeated by the Reds on Wednesday.

Soler took Mat Latos out to center field for a no-doubt home run, starting off his big league career in fashion. The Cubs have been ushering in the youth movement and Soler is the latest part of that. The 22-year-old should get regular playing time in right field through the end of the season.

Julio Teheran earned his 13th win of the season after holding the Mets to one run in 6 1/3 innings of work on Wednesday.

Neither side had much going for them offensively, though Teheran was helped by a pair of spectacular Andrelton Simmons defensive plays, including one to finish the bottom of the eighth inning which saved a run. Teheran allowed just three hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. He owns a 2.90 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 116/52 K/BB ratio. Teheran will look for his 14th win on Monday at home against the Phillies.
Aug 27 - 10:10 PM

Drew Smyly continued his excellence on Wednesday, limiting the Orioles to one run over seven innings of work en route to a win.

Smyly was coming off of a complete game shutout against the Blue Jays on Friday and kept the train rolling with a dominant outing, holding the O's to just two hits and a walk while striking out six. Since joining the Rays, Smyly has a 1.50 ERA and a 29/7 K/BB ratio. The lefty will try to keep the good times rolling when he takes on the Red Sox at home on Monday.
Aug 27 - 9:57 PM

The deadline for the Tigers to work out a trade for Astros reliever Chad Qualls passed without a deal Wednesday.

The deadline passing means Qualls won't be dealt this season. That's good news for fantasy owners, as the right-hander would likely have been a setup man for Joe Nathan in Detroit a la Joakim Soria. Qualls earned his 15th save of the season on Tuesday, and the 36-year-old has a 3.05 ERA on the year.
