Dodgers signed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu to a six-year, $36 million contract.

The Dodgers won the negotiating rights to Ryu with a $25.7 million posting fee, so they'll be paying a total of $61.7 million for him. The Korean import should slot in as the team's No. 4 starter behind Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Josh Beckett, with a host of others vying for the No. 5 spot. Ryu posted a 2.80 ERA over seven seasons in the KBO.

Steven Matz worked eight scoreless innings Wednesday in the Mets' 2-0 defeat of the Nationals.

Matz carved his way through the Bryce Harper-less lineup in Washington, yielding just four hits and a walk while striking out seven. He did actually face Harper in a pinch-hit situation in the bottom of the eighth and got him to ground out. Matz, 24, boasts a 7-1 record, 2.36 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 50/9 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings (eight starts) this season. He'll look to stay ace-like next time out against the White Sox.

Nick Ahmed (head) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Ahmed took a pitch off his chin on Tuesday night but came away with nothing more than some minor cuts. He is batting leadoff Wednesday versus lefty Jeff Locke.

Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup Wednesday against the Yankees.

Tulo made an early exit from Tuesday's game after experiencing tightness in his right quad. Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Ivan Nova. Devon Travis will make his season debut at second.

Maikel Franco was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Tigers with an apparent foot injury.

Franco appeared to jam something while sliding into second base in the top of the seventh inning. He limped off the field. Look for an update shortly.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Jonny Gomes has decided to retire from baseball.

Gomes left the Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan on May 11 "by mutual consent" after batting just .169/.280/.246 with 22 strikeouts in 75 plate appearances. The 35-year-old outfielder finishes his playing career with 835 major league hits and 162 major league homers. He played for the Rays, Reds, Nationals, Athletics, Red Sox, Braves, and Royals during his 13-year career, earning World Series rings with Boston and Kansas City.
May 25 - 3:21 PM

Francisco Cervelli is out again Wednesday.

It's the second day off in a row for Cervelli, who's batting .193/.277/.211 in 16 games this month. He signed a three-year, $31 million contract extension with the Pirates on May 17. Chris Stewart will start at catcher and bat eighth versus the Diamondbacks.
May 25 - 3:15 PM

Travis Shaw (hand) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday versus the Rockies.

Shaw sat out Tuesday with a minor left hand injury. It was probably just soreness. He will start at third base and bat seventh against Colorado righty Chad Bettis.
May 25 - 3:10 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) threw four scoreless innings Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It was the third rehab start for Ryu, who remains on track for a mid-June season debut. The left-hander struck out three, walked none, and scattered five hits over his four shutout frames. He induced a ton of groundballs, which is usually a positive sign that his stuff is working. Ryu and his 3.17 career major league ERA are worth stashing in all mixed fantasy leagues.
May 25 - 3:08 PM

Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday in Tampa Bay.

Yelich has now missed four straight games with what's being called "back spasms." Cole Gillespie will start in left field and bat eighth against Matt Andriese.
May 25 - 2:41 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

Ichiro Suzuki will play right field and bat leadoff versus Rays right-hander Matt Andriese. Stanton hit his 12th home run of the season on Tuesday night, but he had been in a minor slump since an outfield collision with Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. He'll take a day of mental and physical rest.
May 25 - 2:39 PM

Denard Span is getting a normal day of rest Wednesday.

He was in the original lineup, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy ultimately elected to give the 32-year-old outfielder a day off for the matinee game versus the Padres. Span should be fine to return to action for Friday's series opener at Coors Field. Gregor Blanco is starting in center field Wednesday and Kelby Tomlinson is playing left.
