Phil Hughes (back) felt fine after throwing a simulated game on Monday and may progress to pitching in a minor league game as soon as this Saturday.

Hughes remains optimistic that he'll be ready to go when the regular season begins, but a more realistic timetable may have him missing his first scheduled start. Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed Tuesday that if Hughes isn't ready to take his first turn, both Ivan Nova and David Phelps could open the year in the rotation.

Eric Hosmer was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with "decreased grip strength in his hand."

That was the announcement from the Kansas City medical staff. Hosmer got hit by a pitch on Sunday and sat out Monday and Tuesday with what was called a right hand contusion. He obviously needs a little more rest.

Ruben Tejada left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch to the head.

The ball hit the front of Tejada's helmet and knocked it off. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but the Mets will surely run concussion tests.

Mark Reynolds slugged two home runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 5-1 defeat of the visiting Reds.

Reynolds' offensive outburst helped Milwaukee to a big three-game sweep of Cincinnati. He hit a two-run bomb in the bottom of the sixth inning and then smacked a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. The first baseman is batting just .207 this year, but he now has 16 home runs.

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

It'll be the fourth straight game that Puig has missed. He took a Joe Kelly pitch off his left hand on Saturday and is still sore. Multiple X-rays have been taken and the results were negative. Puig remains day-to-day.

Astros placed OF George Springer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.

Springer also has a knee issue and wasn't making enough progress in his workouts. The hope is that he'll be ready as soon as his 15-day stint is over. Springer, 24, boasts an .804 OPS, 20 home runs, and 51 RBI through his first 78 games at the major league level.

Shelby Miller will start fort the Cardinals on Saturday at Wrigley Field.

Carlos Martinez is being moved back to the bullpen. Miller has not been good this season, but Martinez had gone just four innings in back-to-back starts. The Cardinals are expected to acquire a starter at the deadline, so both pitchers could be relievers by August.

The Pirates will place Starling Marte on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

Marte took a fastball off his helmet on Friday, and although he was cleared off a possible concussion and played Monday, it appears he's had a setback. The Pirates should provide more on his status later Wednesday. Brent Morel will take his spot on the roster.

Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for amphetamines.

It was Maybin's second positive test as you're only given a warning and eventually more testing after testing positive the first time. Maybin is batting just .247/.286/.368 over 62 games for the Padres this season. Jeff Francoeur has replaced him on the roster.

Phillies activated C Carlos Ruiz from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Ruiz wasn't supposed to be back until Friday, but the Phils decided to make the move a couple days early. The veteran backstop was been out since late June with post-concussion symptoms, but he got through five rehab games with no issues and is ready to go.
Jul 23 - 2:16 PM

Nationals placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

The Nationals are still awaiting MRI results before they determine how long the third baseman will be sidelined, but it's worth noting that Zimmerman admitting to feeling worse Wednesday than when he suffered the injury Tuesday. He could be looking at an extended stay on the DL. Anthony Rendon will handle third base and Danny Espinosa will be at second while Zimmerman is on the shelf. Zach Walters has replaced Zimmerman on the roster.
