David Ortiz said Thursday that he's "pretty much ahead" of schedule in his recovery from a right Achilles injury but is "not fully recovered."

"Yesterday I started doing some agility drills, and that felt good," Ortiz said. "Tomorrow I'm going to continue doing it. After that if everything goes good I'm going to start doing my running." Big Papi underwent ultrasound therapy on his Achilles last month, which he thinks has had a positive effect. He's expected to be 100 percent for spring training.

Corey Kluber dominated Wednesday, allowing just one hit over seven shutout frames in the Indians’ 12-0 victory over the White Sox.

He racked up seven Ks and only walked one batter. Kluber probably had another inning in him—he left after 95 pitches—but manager Terry Francona played it safe with Cleveland staked to a commanding 11-0 lead. The only hit he gave up came in the second inning when Omar Narvaez plopped a two-out single to left field. The reigning AL Cy Young winner leads the majors with 11 victories and also ranks second in WHIP (0.81) and fifth in ERA (2.10). He gets the Cardinals in his next start Monday at Busch Stadium.

Jose Ramirez slammed his 22nd homer Wednesday in the Indians’ win over Chicago.

Ramirez got Cleveland on the board with a three-run bomb in the first inning. He also walked and stole a base in the fifth before scoring on Yonder Alonso’s RBI double. Ramirez was intentionally walked in the sixth and scored later in the frame on a wild pitch by Bruce Rondon. The 25-year-old now ranks second in the AL in homers (22), fourth in RBI (50), fourth in slugging (.611) and fourth in OPS (1.002). He’s right there with Mike Trout and Mookie Betts in the AL MVP race.

J.A. Happ surrendered six hits and four runs over 8 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Blue Jays’ win over Atlanta.

Happ struck out eight and didn’t walk anyone over a season-high 113 pitches. The left-hander was hoping for his first complete game in eight years, but ran out of gas in the ninth inning, yielding hits to Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis before getting pulled for Ryan Tepera, who allowed both inherited runners to score. Atlanta’s other two runs came on solo blasts by Kurt Suzuki and Peter Bourjos in the second and third innings, respectively. Wednesday extended Happ’s unbeaten streak to seven starts. He’ll take an impressive 9-3 record into his next appearance Monday at Houston.

Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 with another home run Wednesday in the Phillies' 4-3 defeat of the Cardinals.

Herrera doubled in the first inning, singled in the third inning, and cranked a go-ahead solo homer off Cardinals reliever Sam Tuivailala in the bottom of the seventh. The 26-year-old outfielder has now gone yard in four straight games and has boosted his season slash line to .299/.355/.491. He has 12 total homers and 41 total RBI.

Travis Shaw (wrist) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Pirates.

Shaw will start at third base and bat cleanup versus Pittsburgh right-hander Chad Kuhl after missing two games with a minor wrist injury. The 28-year-old has an .835 OPS with 14 home runs and 45 RBI in 69 games this season.
Jun 20 - 3:39 PM

Brett Gardner (knee) remains out of the Yankees' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Mariners.

Gardner has now missed four straight games due to discomfort in his right knee, but there is no talk of placing him on the disabled list. Clint Frazier is starting in left field and batting ninth on Wednesday night against Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez.
Jun 20 - 3:23 PM

A.J. Ramos underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday in New York.

Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek performed the procedure at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Ramos wound up logging just 19 2/3 innings this season, to the tune of a 6.41 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 22/15 K/BB ratio. The 31-year-old right-hander will be a free agent this winter and might have to settle for a low-base-salary, one-year contract given the health concerns.
Jun 20 - 3:11 PM

Austin Meadows (foot) is starting in right field and batting second Wednesday versus the Brewers.

Meadows was held out of the Pirates' starting lineup on Tuesday night due to a sore right foot, though he did appear as a pinch-hitter. The 23-year-old rookie boasts a .323/.347/.591 batting line with five home runs, 11 RBI, three stolen bases, and 12 runs scored through his first 27 major league games. Gregory Polanco and Corey Dickerson are both on the Pirates' bench Wednesday with the Brewers throwing left-hander Brent Suter.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) could begin a minor league rehab assignment as early as Saturday.

A more detailed plan will be laid out after Cueto plays catch on Thursday. He's already thrown a number of bullpen sessions, and he faced live batters earlier this week without issue. The veteran right-hander had a stellar 0.84 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in five starts with the Giants when he landed on the disabled list May 1 with a sprained right elbow.
Jun 20 - 2:53 PM

Wil Myers (oblique) could return to the Padres' active roster this weekend in San Francisco.

Myers is batting .300 with a .900 OPS, one home run, and three doubles through five minor league rehab games (20 plate appearances) with the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas. The 27-year-old has made just 40 plate appearances this season for San Diego due to oblique and arm issues, but he is fully capable of putting up big-time fantasy numbers over the final three months.

Michael Wacha has been diagnosed with a left oblique strain.

At least it's not the shoulder? Wacha suffered the oblique muscle strain during his start Wednesday afternoon against the Phillies, in which he surrendered three runs -- one earned -- on six hits and two walks over 3 2/3 innings before departing. The 26-year-old right-hander is almost certainly headed for the disabled list and could miss around 3-4 weeks. He holds a 3.20 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 71/36 K/BB ratio in 84 1/3 innings this season with St. Louis. The options to replace him include John Gant, Daniel Poncedeleon, and Dakota Hudson.
