Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Brandon League is still the team's closer "for now."

League has blown just one save in nine tries, but he's been scored upon in six of his last seven outings, pushing his ERA up to an ugly 6.28. Kenley Jansen, meanwhile, has put up a 2.29 ERA and boasts a 27/5 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings. It's probably only a matter of time before he usurps the ninth inning role from League.

Scott Kazmir will have an MRI of his left shoulder taken Thursday.

Kazmir left Wednesday's start against the Tigers after three innings with shoulder tightness, so the club will have it looked at. More should be known about his outlook after the results of the MRI are known.

Yoenis Cespedes finished 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Tigers' 3-2 defeat of the A's on Wednesday afternoon at Oakland's O.co Coliseum.

Cespedes drew a walk in the top of the second, singled in the top of the fourth, and then clubbed a three-run homer off A's reliever Dan Otero in the top of the fifth. All while receiving friendly applause from the Oakland fans in his old stomping ground. Cespedes is batting .291/.327/.489 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 48 games this season for Detroit.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday that Matt Adams could need surgery on his right quad.

Adams injured the quad Tuesday while legging out a double and the Cardinals are still determining whether it's a Grade 2 or Grade 3 strain. Grade 3 is the most severe and would almost certainly require a surgical procedure. Either way, Adams is looking at a lengthy absence. Mark Reynolds will serve as the Cardinals' primary first baseman.

Braves acquired 3B Juan Uribe and RHP Chris Withrow from the Dodgers for INF Alberto Callaspo, LHP Eric Stults, LHP Ian Thomas, and RHP Juan Jaime.

Uribe's decline has accelerated in his age-36 season and he's doubtful to take on significant fantasy relevance with a change of scenery. The veteran had hit just .247/.287/.309 with one home run and six RBI in 29 games for the Dodgers. Getting him out of Los Angeles allows Alex Guerrero to become an everyday player.

Joe Panik's two-run home run proved to be all the offense the Giants needed to take down the Brewers on Wednesday.

Panik turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead with a two-run home run to right field off of Mike Fiers. He finished 2-for-4 on the afternoon. Panik has hit safely in 21 of 24 May games and is now batting .297/.366/.430 with three home runs and 17 RBI.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a triple and a two-run double as the White Sox beat the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Wednesday.

Abreu started the scoring, knocking in two with a double off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He set up the White Sox to take the lead in the 10th inning with a leadoff triple. He then scored on an Adam LaRoche single. Abreu is batting .284/.346/.497 on the year with eight home runs and 29 RBI.

Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, leading the Yankees past the Royals on Wednesday.

Rodriguez broke a 1-1 tie with a three-run home run to left field off of Chris Young. The 39-year-old now has 665 home runs in his career and is five RBI shy of 2,000. For the season, Rodriguez is hitting .276/.374/.566 with 11 home runs and 26 RBI.
May 27 - 4:02 PM

Lucas Duda hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in a 3-for-4 effort Wednesday as the Mets topped the Phillies.

Duda started the scoring in the first inning with a solo shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He victimized O'Sullivan again in the fifth with another solo blast, the last of four home runs the Mets hit against the Phillies' right-hander. Duda also had a multi-homer game on May 21, giving him five in his last six games. He has eight total on the season along with 23 RBI and a .305/.400/.539 batting line.
May 27 - 3:50 PM

Nolan Arenado singled and smacked a three-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

Arenado got things going in the first inning, taking Mike Leake deep with two outs and two aboard. The talented third baseman had been in a bit of a funk but has snapped out of it in a big way of late, going 9-for-16 with three dingers and 10 RBI over his last four games. He now has 10 home runs and 31 RBI for the season.
May 27 - 3:34 PM

Felix Hernandez tossed a four-hit shutout against the Rays on Wednesday, improving to 8-1.

Hernandez scattered four hits -- all singles -- and a walk while striking out eight to cinch his second shutout of the season. The right-hander has been predictably stellar through 10 starts, sitting on a 1.91 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and a 71/15 K/BB ratio in 70 2/3 innings. Hernandez will look for his ninth win in his next start at home against the Yankees.
May 27 - 3:33 PM

Nelson Cruz broke a scoreless tie with a three-run home run in the ninth inning, leading the Mariners past the Rays on Wednesday.

Closer Brad Boxberger started the ninth inning for the Rays. After consecutive strikeouts, he walked back-to-back batters to bring Cruz to the plate. He lifted a Boxberger fastball to straightaway center field for a three-run jack. Cruz, who went 1-for-4 on the afternoon, has 18 homers on the year along with 38 RBI and a monster .341/.395/.687 triple-slash line.
