Cubs placed OF Jason Heyward on the 10-day disabled list with a laceration on his right hand.

David Kaplan of CSN Chicago reports the Cubs are sending Kyle Schwarber to Triple-A Iowa.

Kaplan says Schwarber is "not expected to be gone long" and that it's simply an "opportunity to clear his head." The 24-year-old slugger was the toast of the town after returning for last year's World Series, but he has batted just .171/.295/.378 through 64 games this season. The power numbers have been fine, but Schwarber needs to find some consistency and will try to do so against a lower level of competition.

Athletics placed 3B Matt Chapman on the 10-day disabled list with an infection in his left knee.

Chapman suffered a gash on his knee a couple weeks ago at Triple-A Nashville and the wound became infected shortly after his callup to Oakland. He's been prescribed antibiotics, but it's not clear when he might be able to return to the A's active roster. The 24-year-old third baseman was 3-for-14 with three RBI over his first four major league games.

Athletics designated C Stephen Vogt for assignment.

Vogt was an American League All-Star in 2015 and 2016, but the 32-year-old catcher had put up a weak .217/.287/.357 batting line in 174 plate appearances this season. Bruce Maxwell has been recalled from Triple-A to serve as Josh Phegley's backup.

Pirates placed C Francisco Cervelli on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Dexter Fowler (quad) is out of the Cardinals' lineup Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

Fowler departed Wednesday night's comeback win over the Phillies after experiencing tightness in his left quad in the top of the 10th inning. He's considered day-to-day for now. Tommy Pham will start in center field for the Cardinals in Thursday's series finale at Citizens Bank Park.

Justin Verlander spanned 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday night, allowing four hits, three runs and a walk in a no-decision against Seattle.

Verlander collected a season-high 11 strikeouts. He tormented Seattle early, taking a perfect game into the sixth inning. Jarrod Dyson ruined his bid for perfection with a bunt single that eventually sparked a three-run rally. Verlander handed the bullpen a one-run lead but Shane Greene promptly gave it up by allowing four runs in the seventh inning. Last year’s Cy Young runner-up will carry a six-start winless streak into his next outing Tuesday against the Royals.
