CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Angels have joined the hunt for free agent Hiroki Kuroda.

The Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees are also in the mix. And there's still a chance that Kuroda will simply decide to head back to Japan. The 37-year-old right-hander posted a stellar 3.32 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 167/51 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings this past season for New York.

Cameron Maybin (groin) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

Maybin sat out the last two contests with a minor groin injury but is ready to go now. He sports a nice .290/.371/.409 batting line for Atlanta this season.

Ryan Braun has flown to Los Angeles in order to receive another cryotherapy shot in his right thumb.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said it's a pre-planned thing rather than Braun having a setback. Obviously, it's something to keep a close eye on, though, with Braun having hit just .194/.242/.226 over his last seven games. It's possible he'll be ready to play by Friday, but Counsell isn't counting on Braun until Sunday.

Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is expected to sit out again Wednesday.

Hamilton is dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring and will miss a second straight game. It's not viewed as a big deal, as the outfielder remains day-to-day.

A.J. Griffin (elbow) allowed just one hit while striking out three over three scoreless frames in his first rehab start with High-A Stockton.

Griffin had to be shut down a bit after developing some shoulder soreness, but he's back on track now. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, the right-hander figures to need a full 30 days on a rehab assignment, putting him on pace to rejoin the A's rotation in early July.

Mets activated RHP Dillon Gee from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the rotation on Wednesday in San Diego as the Mets go to a six-man rotation. Gee holds a 3.86 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over five starts this season and has missed the last month with a strained groin.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

Austin Jackson reached base six times, as he was hit by a pitch, drew a walk, had four hits, and stole a base in Tuesday's 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

Jackson raised his OPS from .599 to .665 with the effort. He scored once, in the third inning on a Nelson Cruz single to tie the game at 1-1. He then gave the Mariners a temporary 2-1 lead in the sixth with an RBI double. Jackson may be starting to heat up as he's on a six-game hitting streak.

Garrett Jones went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, helping the Yankees take down the Mariners in 11 innings on Tuesday.

Reliever Joe Beimel came in to face Jones with two men aboard in the 11th inning and Jones made him pay, sending the lefty's offering over the fence in right-center with plenty of room to spare. Jones has otherwise not done much in 62 plate appearances for the Yankees, batting .254/.290/.407 with two home runs and seven RBI.

Andrew McCutchen finished a home run shy of the cycle, going 4-for-5 with two RBI as the Pirates won against the Giants on Tuesday.

McCutchen is a ball of hot fire right now, as Tuesday's effort marked his sixth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests. He knocked in a run in the third inning with a single and padded the Pirates' lead with an RBI double in the ninth. McCutchen's early-season struggles are in the rear-view mirror now, as he's hitting .292/.379/.497 with seven home runs and 32 RBI. If there is one complaint, it's that he hasn't been very active on the base paths -- he has only three stolen bases in five attempts to date after going 18-for-21 last year.
Jun 3 - 1:34 AM

Derek Norris went 2-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

Norris homered off of Noah Syndergaard in the fourth inning, extending the Padres' lead to 7-1. He has five home runs on the year now while hitting a productive .287/.327/.468 with 34 RBI. Norris is halfway to matching his season-high in home runs.
Jun 3 - 1:19 AM

A.J. Pollock gave the Diamondbacks a lead they wouldn't relinquish in the seventh inning with a two-run home run Tuesday versus the Braves.

Pollock went yard off of Brandon Cunniff to give the Diamondbacks a 7-6 lead in the seventh inning. He went 2-for-5 on the evening, also knocking in a run with a ground out. Pollock continues to do it all for the D'Backs, batting .314/.365/.474 with six home runs, 22 RBI, 34 runs scored, and 13 stolen bases.
