Ryan Madson (elbow) threw off a mound for the first time Monday and reported no abnormal pain or discomfort.

"He’s on or ahead of schedule," Angels GM Jerry Dipoto told the Orange County Register. "We’re encouraged." Madson is on his way back from Tommy John elbow surgery. If he's ready to rock on Opening Day, he will open the season as the Angels' primary closer.

Jason Hammel led the Cubs to an 8-1 victory over the White Sox on Wednesday by tossing seven innings of one run baseball for his 10th win.

The only run he allowed came on a home run by opposing pitcher Anthony Ranaudo. Hammel struck out seven batters, walked two and gave up just five hits. His record improves to 10-5 with a 3.23 ERA in 114 1/3 innings. Hammel draws two starts next week. The first will be at home versus the Marlins on Monday, then he will travel to Oakland for an interleague game using the designated hitter on Sunday.

Khris Davis hit two home runs and went 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored on Wednesday.

Davis hit a solo homer in the first inning off Yu Darvish, then smoked a two-run blast off Matt Bush in the eighth. He added a double for the third hit. He sports an unusual .256/.294/.514 slash line due to a very low walk rate and a high strikeout rate. But it was the home runs his owners were after when they drafted Khris Davis. He has 25 longballs with 48 runs and 67 RBI.

Freddie Freeman had an absolute monster day at the plate on Wednesday, going 4-for-4 with a homer and five RBI to lead the Braves in a 9-7 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

Freeman came through with run-scoring singles in each of the first two innings, then clubbed a two-run homer in the fourth to increase the Braves' early advantage to 7-0. He added an RBI double in the sixth to provide a valuable insurance run. Freeman also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in all five of his plate appearances, and swiped his fourth base of the season. With the four-hit attack, he raised his season slash to .280/.363/.517 to go with 18 homers and 41 RBI.

Yasmany Tomas had a monster day at the dish on Wednesday, blasting a pair of home runs and plating five as the Diamondbacks routed the Brewers 8-1 at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Tomas capped off a five-run uprising off of Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson in the first inning with a three-run shot. He inflicted more damage in the fifth inning, with a two-run homer to chase Nelson from the ballgame. Tomas finished the night 2-for-5, raising his season slash to .262/.305/.477 to go with 17 homers and 42 RBI in what has been a breakout season offensively.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Jeurys Familia will not be available for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Familia has pitched in back-to-back games. Wednesday's was an outright disaster, as he entered in the ninth with the Mets holding a 4-3 lead over the Cardinals only to surrender a game-tying RBI double to Yadier Molina and a go-ahead RBI double to Kolten Wong. The Mets lost 5-4. Thursday's forced off-day should just be considered a breather for Familia, who had not blown a save opportunity prior to Wednesday's meltdown. Addison Reed will handle any save chance that might come the team's way on Thursday.

Lance McCullers matched his season high with 10 strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball in an impressive victory over the Yankees on Wednesday.

The right-hander scattered five hits and a pair of walks over his six frames. The only blemish on his evening came on a solo home run by Brian McCann in the fourth inning. McCullers has now struck out 10 batters four different times this season, including each of his last two starts. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Blue Jays at home on Tuesday.

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.

Gerrit Cole allowed only one run in a masterful 10-1 complete game victory over the Mariners on Wednesday.

He struck out six batters without walking any and held the Mariners to only three base hits in the entire game. He was able to go the distance on only 94 pitches, 70 of which were strikes. The stellar victory moves him to 6-6 with a 2.78 ERA on the season. He has fanned 73 batters against 23 walks in 87 1/3 innings. Perhaps most impressively he has surrendered only three home runs on the season.

Pirates prospect Steven Brault will start against the Brewers on Friday.

Brault has made one start with the big league team this season, yielding two runs (one earned) against the Cardinals on July 5. In a larger sample, the 24-year-old southpaw holds a 2.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 66/22 K/BB ratio in 11 appearances -- 10 starts -- covering 50 1/3 innings with Triple-A Indianapolis. He draws a nice matchup against the Brewers and makes for a playable DFS option this weekend.

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to a right hamstring strain.

Gomez was replaced in the field by Jake Marisnick in the top of the third inning. The speedy outfielder did not outwardly look hobbled early in the game, but either the Astros saw something or Gomez himself complained of discomfort. Either way, expect him to be reevaluated on Thursday. A trip to the disabled list is one possible outcome here given the notorious uncertainty surrounding any sort of hamstring injury.

Jose Reyes (intercostal strain) will not play until Friday at the earliest.

Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. He was administered an anti-inflammatory shot on Tuesday night. In terms of silver linings, Reyes at least avoided re-breaking the rib he fractured during the opening week of the 2015 season. He initially feared that Tuesday's injury might be a case of history repeating itself.
