Royals acquired RHP Luis Santos and LHP Luis Rico from the Pirates for 1B Clint Robinson and RHP Vin Mazzaro.

Santos, 21, had a 2.44 ERA and 74/20 K/BB ratio over 62 2/3 innings this year between the Pirates' two Dominican Summer League teams. He's a little old for the level, so it's probably time he faces some more advanced competition.

Carlos Correa (illness) is in the Astros' starting lineup Wednesday against the Pirates.

Correa made an early exit from Tuesday night's loss with a stomach bug, but he apparently felt refreshed when he showed back up at Pittsburgh's PNC Park on Wednesday morning. He'll start at shortstop and bat cleanup in the afternoon finale versus Gerrit Cole.

Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) remains absent from the Astros' lineup on Wednesday.

Gurriel has now started just one of four games since joining the active major league roster on Sunday. He left his MLB debut with tightness in his right hamstring and is still apparently experiencing discomfort. This is probably a good time for a reminder that the Cuban slugger is 32 years old. Alex Bregman will start at third base again and bat second Wednesday versus Pirates ace Gerrit Cole.

Andrew McCutchen is out of the Pirates' lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

Starling Marte is in center field, Gregory Polanco is in left field, and Matt Joyce is in right field in the afternoon tilt versus Houston right-hander Collin McHugh. This appears to be a routine day of rest for McCutchen, who's been hitting the ball well in August.

Orioles placed RHP Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

He is eligible to return from the disabled list September 5 and the O's are hoping he will be ready on that date. Tillman missed a start one week ago after complaining of shoulder discomfort and then got lit up for six earned runs over just two innings Saturday versus the Astros. That blunder aside, he has been the Orioles' most reliable pitcher in 2016 by far. Ubaldo Jimenez and his 6.94 ERA will start in Tillman's place Thursday versus the Nationals.

Sean Manaea was superb in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Indians, yielding one run on three hits over seven innings.

Manaea induced eight strikeouts and walked two during this charmed outing. A Chris Gimenez solo home run in the sixth inning represented his only real spot of trouble. With the victory, Manaea improved to 5-8 with a 4.53 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. He will tango with the Astros on the road next time he toes the rubber.

Jake Arrieta was phenomenal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Padres, tossing eight innings of two-hit, shutout ball.

Don't let the 5-3 final fool you. Arrieta was absolutely lights out and the three runs on the Padres' side of the ledger all scored in the ninth inning, after the ace right-hander had exited stage left. He struck out six and walked two on the evening, finishing out having thrown 99 pitches (59 strikes). It wasn't his most efficient outing in terms of his control, but eight innings of shutout ball is eight innings of shutout ball. Arrieta will bring a sharp 2.62 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into a home start against the Pirates next time out.

Yasmany Tomas left Tuesday's game against the Braves due to mid-back stiffness.

Brandon Drury pinch-hit for Tomas midway through Tuesday's contest, as apparently Tomas' back stiffened up on him during the proceedings. He was waylaid by a stiff neck earlier this month, but no word as of yet whether his current back ailment is in any way related. For the time being, Tomas should be considered day-to-day. He will be reevaluated on Wednesday.

Wilmer Flores hit a three-run home run as the Mets bested the Cardinals 7-4 on Tuesday.

Getting a start against a lefty as per usual, Flores turned on an inside fastball in the first inning for the three-run dinger. It was his only hit in the game and Flores' 13th homer of the year. With first base still a big question mark and Flores' ability to hit left-handed pitching, the 25-year-old should continue to draw starts at the less-hot corner going forward. Flores is hitting .259/.315/.447 in 87 games total.
Aug 24 - 1:00 AM

CC Sabathia was fantastic in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Mariners, firing seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball.

Sabathia struck out seven and walked just one in what was one of his stronger starts of the season. The only run to score on his watch came in the third inning, when Ketel Marte picked up an RBI single off the veteran southpaw. The shiny outing must have felt all the sweeter for what came before, as Sabathia was shelled for seven runs by the Blue Jays last time out. He will try to replicate Tuesday's results when he brings his 4.33 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 117/52 K/BB ratio (137 1/3 innings) into a road date with the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Mets placed LHP Jon Niese on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

Niese was forced out of Tuesday's start versus the Cardinals after feeling a shooting pain in his left knee. He managed to record just one out in the first inning before being attended to by the training staff. In a corresponding move, Erik Goeddel was recalled from Triple-A. At this early stage, there is no timetable for Niese's return.
Aug 24 - 12:54 AM

Robert Gsellman earned his first major league win Tuesday, tossing 3 2/3 scoreless innings in relief against the Cardinals.

Gsellman was thrust into a difficult position for his first MLB appearance, asked to take over for injured starter Jon Niese after Niese faced just four batters. The 23-year-old answered the bell, though, holding the Cardinals to two hits and three walks while striking out two in his debut. He was rewarded with the win for his efforts, another first. Gsellman was recalled on Monday as a likely bullpen arm, but if Niese or starter Steven Matz is forced to miss a turn it will likely be Gsellman who is asked to take the ball instead.
