Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday "it's too early to call" whether the rest program prescribed for Masahiro Tanaka's right elbow will work.

The other option is obviously surgery, so the Yankees are going to give the program all the time they can before making a decision. Cashman did add that Tanaka is feeling better since he was shut down on July 10 due to a partial tear in his ulnar collateral ligament. He's still weeks away from any potential return to the mound.

Manny Machado (back) is not in the Orioles' lineup on Wednesday.

Machado received an anti-inflammatory injection for his back after Tuesday's game, so it's no surprise that he's getting the day off Wednesday. He's still considered day-to-day for now, but if misses too many more games it might make sense for the Orioles to shut him down for a few weeks. Ryan Flaherty started at third base in his absence.

According to CSNBayArea.com beat reporter Andrew Baggarly, the Giants are "growing more concerned" about Brandon Belt's concussion.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Tuesday that Belt was "making progress" and might soon be able to resume some baseball activities, but the first baseman was sent back to the team hotel on Wednesday evening in Philadelphia after exhibiting lingering concussion-related symptoms. There is no timetable for his return at this point.

James Shields held the White Sox to one run in seven innings Wednesday in a 2-1 Royals victory.

Shields was left with a no-decision because the Kansas City offense didn't break through for the lead until the top of the ninth inning. But the right-hander pitched really well, scattering six hits and a walk while striking out seven White Sox batters. He'll carry a 3.58 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into his next start at home against the Twins.

Eric Hosmer was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with "decreased grip strength in his hand."

That was the announcement from the Kansas City medical staff. Hosmer got hit by a pitch on Sunday and sat out Monday and Tuesday with what was called a right hand contusion. He obviously needs a little more rest.

Ruben Tejada left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch to the head.

The ball hit the front of Tejada's helmet and knocked it off. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but the Mets will surely run concussion tests.

Mark Reynolds slugged two home runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 5-1 defeat of the visiting Reds.

Reynolds' offensive outburst helped Milwaukee to a big three-game sweep of Cincinnati. He hit a two-run bomb in the bottom of the sixth inning and then smacked a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. The first baseman is batting just .207 this year, but he now has 16 home runs.

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

Hanley was struck by pitches on the left shoulder and wrist in the Dodgers' win over the Cardinals on Sunday night and hasn't played since. He's still day-to-day.
Jul 23 - 4:44 PM

Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

It'll be the fourth straight game that Puig has missed. He took a Joe Kelly pitch off his left hand on Saturday and is still sore. Multiple X-rays have been taken and the results were negative. Puig remains day-to-day.

Astros placed OF George Springer on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.

Springer also has a knee issue and wasn't making enough progress in his workouts. The hope is that he'll be ready as soon as his 15-day stint is over. Springer, 24, boasts an .804 OPS, 20 home runs, and 51 RBI through his first 78 games at the major league level.
Jul 23 - 4:31 PM

Shelby Miller will start fort the Cardinals on Saturday at Wrigley Field.

Carlos Martinez is being moved back to the bullpen. Miller has not been good this season, but Martinez had gone just four innings in back-to-back starts. The Cardinals are expected to acquire a starter at the deadline, so both pitchers could be relievers by August.
