Daniel Hudson (elbow) threw 55 pitches over two innings in a live batting practice session on Monday.

"He looked good," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "He was overthrowing in the first inning but he came back in the second and had much better location. Overall it was good." Hudson will now begin throwing on a regular five-day cycle, mixing in a bullpen session in between each outing as he would do during the regular season. The D'Backs are hoping to get him back just before the All-Star break.

Danny Valencia (wrist) is back in the Mariners' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Valencia had been sidelined since an awkward slide into third base on Friday night against the White Sox. He is starting at first base and batting cleanup Wednesday versus Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark.
May 24 - 3:33 PM

Nelson Cruz is not in the Mariners' lineup Wednesday at Nationals Park.

There is no DH available, so Cruz will operate as a bench weapon for manager Scott Servais. Ben Gamel is starting in right field and batting fifth versus Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark.
May 24 - 3:31 PM

Yasmany Tomas was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday due to tightness in his left hip flexor.

Daniel Descalso will start in left field and bat fifth versus White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. Tomas is day-to-day for now.

Tyson Ross (shoulder) could make his Rangers debut next weekend against the Astros.

Ross looked excellent in his first rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock, yielding only two hits over five scoreless innings. He'll start for Round Rock again on Monday, with the goal of making it six innings, and then we should see the right-hander back in the bigs for the first time since Opening Day in 2016. Ross is a worthwhile stash in deeper mixed fantasy leagues coming off October 2016 surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. He registered a 3.07 ERA and 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings with the Padres between 2013-2015.

Javier Baez is batting leadoff for the Cubs on Wednesday night against the Giants.

A nice reward for his hot May. Baez has slashed .318/.338/.636 with six home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases, and 13 runs scored in 19 games since the calendar flipped from April. Ben Zobrist is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday against Giants lefty Matt Moore, as is Willson Contreras. Miguel Montero will catch.
May 24 - 3:09 PM

Maikel Franco remains out of the Phillies' starting lineup on Wednesday.

That's back-to-back benchings for the 24-year-old third baseman, who's batting just .221/.281/.377 in 171 plate appearances this season. Andres Blanco is starting at the hot corner and hitting fifth on Wednesday night against the Rockies.

Adrian Beltre (calf) has been cleared to begin playing in extended spring training games Thursday in Arizona.

He'll play three games and then the Rangers' medical staff will reevaluate him on Sunday. A full minor league rehab assignment could follow. Beltre has been on the disabled list all year because of nagging right calf strain. He's currently trending toward an early-June season debut.
May 24 - 2:45 PM

Christian Yelich (hip) said Wednesday that he expects to avoid the disabled list.

Yelich exited Tuesday's game with right hip flexor tightness and he is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon in Oakland, but the issue is not believed to be serious. Marlins president Michael Hill echoed Yelich's optimism. Consider the center fielder day-to-day.
May 24 - 2:02 PM

Avisail Garcia (flu) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday afternoon in Arizona.

He'll start in right field and bat fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Randall Delgado after missing Tuesday's game with a mild case of the flu. Garcia boasts a .971 OPS with eight home runs and 34 RBI over 43 games this season for Chicago.
May 24 - 1:40 PM

Yonder Alonso (wrist) is out of the Athletics' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Marlins.

Alonso suffered a bruised right wrist Tuesday when he was hit by a pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning. X-rays turned up negative and he will probably be available off the bench for the A's in their series finale versus the Fish. Ryon Healy is starting at first base and Khris Davis is serving as Oakland's designated hitter on Wednesday.
May 24 - 1:17 PM

Howie Kendrick (oblique) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Kendrick received clearance to play in minor league games after taking outdoor batting practice on Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park. He's been out since April 15, so the Phillies will probably have him stay at Triple-A through the weekend to get properly tuned up. Kendrick was batting .333/.395/.487 over his first 43 plate appearances this season with the Phils. The versatile veteran should get something close to everyday playing time when he returns.
