Nationals optioned 3B Anthony Rendon to Double-A Harrisburg.

Rendon had his first career two-hit game Thursday, but the Nats don't have playing time for him anymore with Ryan Zimmerman back from the DL. He batted .240 with one RBI over eight contests with the big club.

Marcell Ozuna has been scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday versus the Royals.

No reason has been given yet. Tyler O'Neill is now starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Kansas City right-hander Jake Junis.

Juan Soto will bat second for the Nationals on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres.

It's the highest lineup slot to date for Soto, who batted sixth on Monday and Tuesday. The 19-year-old top outfield prospect has three hits, a homer, three RBI, and three walks through his first nine plate appearances at the major league level.

Nationals recalled RHP Erick Fedde from Triple-A Syracuse.

Fedde will make a spot start for the Nats on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres. He's registered a weak 4.35 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings (eight starts) this season at Triple-A, but the 25-year-old former first-round pick makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus a San Diego offense that ranks 29th in team OPS.

Rays placed RHP Jake Faria on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Faria suffered the oblique strain in the the third inning of his start Tuesday night against the Red Sox and Rays manager Kevin Cash acknowledged after the game that the 24-year-old right-hander will be sidelined for a while. It could be something like 4-6 weeks. Faria has turned in some impressive outings this season, but he holds a poor 5.48 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 37/22 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 overall innings. It's probably safe to drop him in standard redraft leagues.

Astros placed OF Josh Reddick on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a leg infection.

This has been a lingering thing for Reddick, though he should be able to return from the DL when first eligible late next week. Jake Marisnick will replace him on the Astros' roster for now. Reddick, 31, has a .740 OPS with six homers and one stolen base in 42 games this year.

Lorenzo Cain is getting the day off Wednesday.

Christian Yelich will start in center field and bat second versus Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Godley, with Hernan Perez in left and Domingo Santana in right. It's just a routine day of rest for Cain, who's slashing .283/.391/.452 with six home runs, 10 stolen bases, and 29 runs scored in 46 games this year.

An MRI taken Tuesday on Khris Davis' right groin revealed a Grade 1 strain.

That's the least-severe type of strain, but it's still usually a multi-week injury and the 30-year-old slugger will almost certainly be placed on the disabled list Wednesday. Davis suffered the injury on a swing in Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays and hasn't played since, so the move can be made retroactive to May 21. He's sitting on an .805 OPS, 13 home runs, and 38 RBI in 47 games.

Yasiel Puig homered and drove in two runs in a 5-3 victory over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Puig's homer was a solo shot off of Bryan Shaw in the sixth inning. He also drove in a run on a bases loaded walk in the first, and he reached via base-on-balls again later in the contest. Since returning from the disabled list with a hip injury, Puig has really swung the bat well, and his .221/.294/.393 line is a big improvement over where it was just a few weeks ago. When Puig is hot, there aren't many better.

Guillermo Heredia went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in a 3-2 victory over the Athletics in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Heredia also reached twice via walk. The double was a shot to deep right-center that scored Jean Segura from first base and gave the Mariners the go-ahead run in the victory over Oakland. Heredia is going to get much more playing time over the coming weeks because of injuries and Robinson Cano's suspension, and if he can keep up what he's doing -- .286/.439/.460 in 32 games -- or even a semblance of it, he's not going to give up a starting spot anytime soon.
May 23 - 12:59 AM

Gerrit Cole continued his dominance on Tuesday, allowing just two runs on four hits over six innings in a victory over the Giants.

The right-hander racked up another eight strikeouts in this one against three walks. The only success against him came on Brandon Crawford's two-run homer in the fifth inning. Next to teammate Justin Verlander, there hasn't been a better pitcher in all of baseball this season. Cole now sits at 5-1 with a microscopic 1.86 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 101/17 K/BB ratio in his 67 2/3 innings (13.43 K/9). He'll do battle against the Indians his next time out in Cleveland on Sunday.
May 23 - 12:53 AM

X-rays turned up negative on Mitch Haniger's left wrist.

Haniger was removed from Tuesday's game against the Athletics after getting hit on the left arm by a Trevor Cahill pitch, but he escaped with a bruise and can be considered day-to-day. The 27-year-old outfielder has an outstanding .296/.381/.568 batting line with 11 home runs, 36 RBI, three stolen bases, and 22 runs scored in 47 games this season.
