Mitchell Boggs blew a ninth-inning lead Sunday in the Cardinals' loss to the Brewers.

Boggs entered with the Cardinals up by one run. He promptly gave up a single to Carlos Gomez and then Yuniesky Betancourt hit a game-tying RBI double. Boggs has allowed nine runs -- eight earned -- in just 6 1/3 innings this season, but Trevor Rosenthal has also been shaky. The Cardinals miss Jason Motte (elbow) badly.

Dilson Herrera went 3-for-3 with an RBI single and a two-run home run as the Mets topped the Orioles on Wednesday.

Herrera entered the night with one hit (a single) in 14 plate appearances since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas. He started the scoring with an RBI single in the second inning, then provided insurance with a two-run home run off of Brad Brach in the sixth. Herrera had been hitting well in the minors; the Mets are hoping some of that eventually translates while he's up in the majors.

Mike Leake fired eight shutout innings to pick up his second win of the season on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Leake scattered six hits -- all singles -- while walking none and striking out two. He's gone eight innings without allowing a run in back-to-back starts as he did it against the Braves his last time out. Now 2-1 with a 2.47 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP, and a 27/10 K/BB ratio, Leake will look to make it three in a row as he faces the Braves at home in his next start.

Joey Votto was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Pirates for spiking his helmet.

Votto made contact with umpire Chris Conroy while arguing the ejection, which is likely to draw further punishment (perhaps even a suspension). Votto also exchanged words with Pirates starter Gerrit Cole before heading into the visitors clubhouse at PNC Park. It's rare to see such an outburst from the thoughtful 31-year-old first baseman.

Ian Kennedy held the Giants to one run over seven innings in the Padres' lopsided 9-1 win Wednesday.

Giants starter Chris Heston had no answer for the Padres' bats, but Kennedy had no problem silencing the Giants'. The right-hander allowed just six hits without walking a batter, striking out five. Kennedy has rattled off two straight wins after a bumpy return from the disabled list in late April, and he's now 2-1 with a still-unsightly 5.03 ERA. An interleague tilt with the Mariners is on tap for Tuesday.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports Jarrod Saltalamacchia could sign with a club as early as Thursday.

Cafardo notes the Red Sox, who have now lost Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan for significant lengths of time, are not interested. Those who are include the Mariners, Orioles, Royals and Diamondbacks. We should know soon enough where his new home will be.
May 6 - 7:23 PM

Corey Dickerson (foot) is out of the Rockies' lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

Dickerson had a flare-up of his plantar fasciitis so he'll get a rest in the nightcap. It's unclear whether the recurrence will force him to miss any time beyond Wednesday. Rafael Ynoa started in left field for the Rockies in Wednesday night's game.
May 6 - 6:59 PM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday.

Puig still hadn't resumed running the bases as of Wednesday morning, so it will be interesting to find out how he fares on the basepaths should he reach base. Even so, it's a definite step in the right direction for the outfielder, who is on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. There's still a chance Puig comes off the DL after his 15 days are up.
May 6 - 6:42 PM

Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) played catch Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's start with an apparent injury.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal heard Strasburg left Tuesday with a "cramp" and that a chiropractor adjusted him Wednesday. Whatever the issue, it's promising that he was feeling good enough to throw a day after exiting. The Nationals are still trying to assess the issue, and his status for his next scheduled start is still very much up in the air.
May 6 - 6:34 PM

Jake McGee (elbow) is scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Durham on Friday.

The southpaw will likely have at least two more appearances with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate before being activated. McGee hasn't thrown a pitch for the Rays yet this season after offseason elbow surgery. Still, the expectation is that he'll eventually regain the closer job once healthy.
May 6 - 6:23 PM

Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will face live hitters Friday.

That's three days earlier than previously scheduled, a good sign for the lefty's recovery from a rotator cuff injury. Doolittle should be back sometime in May, barring any setbacks.
May 6 - 6:13 PM

Jose Iglesias (groin) is back in the Tigers' starting lineup on Wednesday night versus the White Sox.

Iglesias was unavailable Tuesday after leaving Sunday's game with tightness in his left groin. The dynamic young shortstop is batting ninth in his return to action Wednesday against White Sox ace Chris Sale.
