Mat Gamel (knee) has been ruled out for the season.

Gamel re-injured his surgically-repaired right knee on Saturday in camp. It's another tough development for the Brewers, who were going to rely on Gamel as their starter at first base this season until Corey Hart recovered from his own recent knee procedure. The Milwaukee front office will have to reconsider outside options to fill the hole at a premium offensive position.

Asdrubal Cabrera was removed from Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

Matt Reynolds came on to play shortstop in the bottom of the first inning. Cabrera didn't bat in the top of the first, so this is an odd one. There should be an update from the Mets within the hour.

Athletics activated 2B Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list.

Lowrie wound up missing exactly 15 days with a bruised right shin. The second baseman returns Wednesday to a cool .302/.341/.345 batting line with 17 RBI in 32 games.

Matt Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday because his wife is about to have a baby.

It seemed odd that the Cards would rest their best left-handed hitter against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Now we have a good reason for the absence. Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth in the afternoon tilt at Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong will take a turn at leadoff.

Francisco Lindor is out of the Indians' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the White Sox.

It's a simple day of maintenance for Lindor. Jose Ramirez will draw the start at shortstop and bat third Wednesday versus White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana.

Mike Moustakas will have his bruised knee examined by team doctors on Thursday in Kansas City.

Moustakas has been held out of the Royals' starting lineup since banging his knee against Alex Gordon on Sunday afternoon in Chicago. Gordon took the brunt of that collision -- he's already been placed on the disabled list with a broken scaphoid bone in his right wrist -- but Moustakas is now having serious problems too. Per beat writer Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com, the third baseman was able to take swings Wednesday but had issues doing any sort of lateral movement. He could soon join Gordon on the DL. Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at the hot corner Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota.

Matt Harvey will take his next turn in the Mets' rotation Monday versus the White Sox.

There was some talk of skipping Harvey or even trying a phantom disabled list stint after he got lit up for five runs over five innings Tuesday against the Nationals. The right-hander has allowed 19 runs -- 16 earned -- over his last 13 1/3 innings (three starts) and owns a rough 6.08 ERA for the year. But there will be no drastic changes yet.

Bryce Harper is out of the Nationals' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Mets.

Harper is batting just .133 with a .516 OPS over his last 10 games and will grab a bit of mental and physical rest in the afternoon tilt against the Mets. Chris Heisey is starting in right field and batting seventh for the Nats versus New York lefty Steven Matz.

Rougned Odor's eight-game suspension appeal decision probably won't come until Thursday or Friday.

Odor had the appeal hearing Tuesday, but Jon Morosi of FOX Sports notes that there is "a lot of information being considered" by the people tasked with rendering a ruling. The second baseman was issued the eight-game punishment by Major League Baseball on May 17 for his role in a massive May 15 brawl with the Blue Jays. He could be clearly seen connecting on a punch to Jose Bautista's face. Odor will remain active until the appeal decision is announced.

Jorge Soler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Cardinals.

Soler slugged a two-run homer as part of a three-RBI performance on Tuesday night in St. Louis, but he'll be on the bench at the opening of Wednesday's matinee. Kris Bryant is starting in left field and batting third and Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting sixth versus Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez.
May 25 - 10:42 AM

Ian Kinsler (flu) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Phillies.

Kinsler had to be scratched from Tuesday night's game after experiencing flu-like symptoms and he'll remain on the bench for Wednesday's matinee. Mike Aviles is starting at second base and batting eighth versus Philadelphia right-hander Aaron Nola. Cameron Maybin will get another turn at leadoff.
May 25 - 10:09 AM

Wil Myers (forearm) is not expected to play Wednesday.

Myers experienced some discomfort in his left forearm Monday while picking up a baseball and the Padres want to play it safe so that this doesn't turn into another extended absence. Including a scheduled team off day Thursday, the 25-year-old first baseman can get three straight days of rest. He's slashing just .218/.227/.345 with one walk and 17 strikeouts in 87 at-bats this month.
