Trevor Cahill (hip) is expected to be ready for his next start.

Cahill had to leave Wednesday's game after taking a first-inning Marcell Ozuna line drive off his right hip. His removal was a precaution, though, and he'll be fine for a start early next week against the Nationals.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that he expects Adam Jones (hamstring) to be back in the lineup on Friday.

Jones has been nursing a left hamstring injury for over a week, but he's making steady progress on the side. Showalter has two more outfield options at his disposal should Jones' leg act up on him again in the near future. Earlier on Wednesday, the team claimed Drew Stubbs off release waivers from the Rangers and traded with the Diamondbacks for Michael Bourn.

Mets acquired RHP Fernando Salas from the Angels for RHP Erik Manoah.

Salas owns an underwhelming 4.47 ERA and 45/19 K/BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings this season, but he had been operating as the Angels' closer for the last few weeks with both Huston Street (knee) and Cam Bedrosian (armpit) on the shelf. The 31-year-old right-hander will move into a setup role in New York. Manoah, 20, was sitting on a 5.37 ERA through 62 innings this year with Low-A Brooklyn.

Corey Kluber struck out 11 batters while yielding three runs in eight innings to lead the Indians to an 8-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

He gave up a solo homer to Max Kepler in the third inning and sailed into the eighth inning with a 7-1 lead. He gave up a two-run shot to Brian Dozier before completing that frame and finishing his night. The 2014 Cy Young winner moves to 15-8 with a 3.09 ERA after 27 starts. He has a beautiful 189/46 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 183 2/3 innings.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Neil Walker will "probably" undergo surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back.

The Mets' dark, injury-riddled season continues. Walker was diagnosed with a herniated disc in his back earlier on Wednesday and while the second baseman wanted to play through the injury, it was causing him numbness in his foot and leg. After seeking a second opinion, it was determined that surgery would be the best course of action. Walker will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

Red Sox infield prospect Yoan Moncada will be promoted to the major leagues on Friday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell hinted that this might be in the works in a chat with the media on Wednesday morning, stating that the 21-year-old would be brought up as "not just a pinch-runner" but to see regular action at third base. Travis Shaw, Aaron Hill, and Brock Holt have been disappointing at the hot corner in Boston and Moncada has slashed .298/.411/.518 with 15 home runs and 45 steals in 105 games this season between High-A Salem and Double-A Portland. The ultra-talented Cuban is looking like a must-own for the stretch run.

Orioles acquired OF Michael Bourn from the Diamondbacks for OF Jason Heinrich.

Bourn's bat isn't particularly live these days: The 33-year-old outfielder owns a .261/.307/.362 triple-slash to pair with three homers, 30 RBI, and 13 steals across 329 at-bats in 2016. Along with Drew Stubbs -- whom the O's picked up following his release from the Rangers -- Bourn will add to the outfield depth in Baltimore, though his fantasy value is next to nonexistent at this juncture, even in deeper AL-only formats.

Ricky Nolasco hurled a dominant four-hit, complete-game shutout against the Reds on Wednesday, striking out seven batters as the Angels won 3-0.

Yes, you read that right. Ricky Nolasco actually did that. He kept the Reds off-balance all night. He didn't walk anybody and finished the game on just 94 pitches -- having faced only 30 batters. He managed to do that despite two errors being made behind him. He picked off a runner and started a double-play on a comebacker. Lest we forget who this is, the excellent game boosted his record to a still-unsightly 5-12 with a 4.95 ERA. This was Nolasco's first win as an Angel and first since July 9th -- three weeks before he was traded by the Twins.

Marcell Ozuna was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Mets due to a sore left wrist.

Ozuna made a diving, tumbling catch in the third inning but tweaked something in his left wrist as he met the ground. Jeff Francoeur replaced him in right field to start the fourth. Ozuna will be reevaluated by team doctors on Thursday. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Aug 31 - 8:41 PM

Dallas Keuchel will be pushed back from his scheduled Friday start due to fatigue.

In order to afford Keuchel an extra day's rest or two, Doug Fister will start in his place against the Rangers on Friday night. The reigning AL Cy Young winner won't be pushed out of the key series entirely, though, and is expected to start on either Saturday or Sunday.
Aug 31 - 6:52 PM

Rich Hill (blister) has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Rockies.

Bud Norris will take the mound instead to kick off what will essentially be a bullpen game for Los Angeles. Hill threw 40 warmup tosses before Tuesday's game at Coors Field was postponed due to rain and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts admitted Wednesday afternoon that he was concerned about aggravating the blister that recently cost the veteran left-hander five weeks. Hill went six scoreless innings in his Dodgers debut last Wednesday versus the Giants. He will aim to make his second start for Los Angeles sometime this weekend.
Aug 31 - 6:18 PM

Albert Pujols is out of the Angels' lineup Wednesday due to a flareup of plantar fasciitis.

Pujols has dealt with plantar fasciitis in his left foot off and on since his peak years with the Cardinals, but this bout is actually in his right foot. Not good. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said there is no talk of shutting Pujols down, but the veteran slugger is probably going to need regular days off down the stretch. Kole Calhoun is at DH and batting second on Wednesday night against Reds left-hander Brandon Finnegan.
