Justin Verlander allowed three hits and one run over six dominant innings Wednesday in the Astros’ win over San Francisco.

He cashed out with nine strikeouts and only one walk over 97 pitches. The only hint of trouble for Verlander came in the fourth when Gorkys Hernandez led off the inning with a triple to center field and later scored on a sac fly by Buster Posey. Incredibly, Verlander’s ERA actually went up (from 1.05 to 1.08) as a result of Wednesday’s outing. He’s been practically unbeatable since joining Houston last summer. The former MVP will try for his seventh win Monday versus the Yankees. He struck out 14 over eight shutout innings in his previous start against them on May 1.

George Springer added two hits including his 10th homer Wednesday in the Astros’ 4-1 win over the Giants.

Springer singled off Jeff Samardzija (literally—he drilled a comebacker off his right hand) for Houston’s first hit of the afternoon, then broke a 1-1 tie by sending a two-run homer out to the train tracks in left field. The reigning World Series MVP has been excellent as usual for the first-place Astros, slashing .294/.353/.500 with 10 round-trippers, 31 RBI and 36 runs scored.

Mitch Haniger (wrist) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

Haniger will sit wth a contusion in his right wrist, and Jon Andreoli will take his place in the lineup and make his major league debut. Haniger suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch by Trevor Cahill, and is considered day-to-day with x-rays coming back negative. A trip to the disabled list will likely be avoided.

Michael Fulmer scattered four hits and one run over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Tigers’ win over Minnesota.

He fanned five and walked three over a season-high 113 pitches. Fulmer gave up two hits and a run in the first inning but settled down after that, allowing just two more hits the rest of the way. Wednesday’s victory was Fulmer’s first since April 7. He’ll try to make it two straight when he takes the mound Tuesday against the Angels.

Jean Segura (shoulder) is batting first and playing shortstop on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Segura jammed is shoulder when he slid into Jonathan Lucroy's leg while scoring the go-ahead run in an extra-innings victory over the A's on Tuesday, but he's apparently feeling well enough to play against the Athletics. In 46 games this year, Segura is hitting .315 with 11 steals, three homers and 33 RBI.

Jesus Aguilar drove in three of the Brewers’ nine runs Wednesday in a win over Arizona.

Aguilar began the day with an RBI single in the first, then plated two more runs with another single in the fourth inning. He scored later in that frame on Travis Shaw’s three-run homer off Zack Godley. Aguilar has done an admirable job filling in for Eric Thames at first base, batting .324 with seven homers in 111 at-bats this season. Despite his recent success, the 27-year-old is still available in half of all Yahoo leagues.

Zack Godley got rocked for seven hits and eight runs (six earned) in just 3 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ loss to Milwaukee.

Godley walked six and struck out three while throwing 50 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Arizona actually held a 2-1 lead going into the fourth inning but that’s when the wheels fell off for Godley, who yielded four hits, two walks and seven runs in the frame before finally getting the hook from manager Torey Lovullo. One of those hits included a three-run homer by Travis Shaw. The right-hander is now 0-3 with a 5.27 ERA in five starts this month. He’ll look to bounce back Tuesday at home against Cincinnati. The reeling D’Backs have now lost 13 of their last 14 including seven straight.
May 23 - 5:15 PM

Athletics placed DH Khris Davis on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 21 with a right groin strain.

Davis was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain after an MRI on Tuesday. He suffered the injury on a swing against the Blue Jays on Sunday's series finale, and was out of the lineup on Tuesday against the Mariners. In 47 games, Davis has hit 13 homers and driven in 38 runs with an .805 OPS.
May 23 - 5:13 PM

Ryan Braun (back) will be activated off the disabled list on Thursday.

Braun was placed on the disabled list on May 14, so he'll spend just the minimum amount of time on the disabled list. The veteran All-Star has not gotten off to a strong start this season, hitting .222/.268/.413 with five homers and four stolen bases over 37 games.
May 23 - 4:34 PM

Reds placed RHP Raisel Iglesias on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left bicep.

The good news is that it's his non-throwing arm, but the exact timetable for his return is unclear at the moment. Iglesias hasn't pitched since May 19 when he gave up two runs and blew a save against the Cubs. On the season, Iglesias owns a 2.08 ERA with seven saves along with 27 strikeouts over 21 2/3 innings in 20 appearances. Amir Garrett, David Hernandez, and Jared Hughes are among the possible fill-ins for fantasy owners.
May 23 - 4:19 PM

Gary Sanchez (calf) is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

Sanchez departed Tuesday's game with a calf cramp. He could be ready to go Friday after Thursday's off day. Austin Romine is catching Wednesday.
