Wilson Ramos (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled Thursday.

Ramos is 0-for-7 with a strikeout over two rehab games with High-A Potomac, but the important part is that his hamstring feels fine. He's expected to DH in one final rehab game on Wednesday before coming off the DL. Nationals manager Davey Johnson said he may give him back-to-back starts upon his return.

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Ortiz missed the previous two contests after fouling a ball off his right foot on Sunday, but he's obviously feeling better. Big Papi is hitting .265/.362/.524 with 30 homers and 93 RBI for the Red Sox this season.

Adam LaRoche is back in the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

LaRoche sat out Tuesday due to back soreness, but he's apparently feeling much better and is ready to give it a go. The Nationals' first baseman is sporting a .266/.372/.454 batting line with 19 homers and 69 RBI this season.

Cubs recalled OF Jorge Soler from Triple-A Iowa.

Soler is in right field and batting fifth in his major league debut Wednesday in Cincinnati. The Cuban defector missed time with a hamstring injury this season but has batted .340/.432/.700 with 15 homers and 57 RBI over 62 games when healthy. The 22-year-old figures to be the everyday right fielder down the stretch with the Cubbies and is worth a shot in all fantasy leagues.

Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny on Wednesday wouldn't rule out the possibility of Yadier Molina (thumb) being activated from the disabled list Friday.

It goes along with previous report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold, who said a return over the weekend was possible. Molina will catch five innings Wednesday in his first rehab appearance with Double-A Springfield. It's not clear whether he might need additional rehab games, but the Cards would seem likely to have him catch a full game before being activated. Molina has been sidelined since July 10 with a torn ligament in his right thumb.

Andrew McCutchen is back in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.

McCutchen exited Tuesday's contest after aggravating his rib fracture when he slammed into the outfield wall, but his removal was precautionary and he's back out there the next day. The reigning National League MVP has just seven hits in 28 at-bats since returning from the disabled list, but three of them have left the yard.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday that "it will be more like June" before Patrick Corbin (elbow) rejoins the rotation.

Corbin had Tommy John surgery in March, so projecting a June return is certainly conservative but also probably wise. "I think with Patrick it will be more like June for him," Gibson said. "He'd probably punch me if heard me saying that but you're really going to take your time and make sure he's ready to go. You're not going to expect him to come back and throw 220 innings. You kind of manage his rehab through innings and put him in a position to finish strong. … We're going to make sure we err on the side of very cautious." In addition to Corbin, the D'Backs also have David Hernandez, Matt Reynolds, Daniel Hudson and Bronson Arroyo working their way back from Tommy John surgery, though Hudson and Reynolds could be back late this season.

David Wright admitted on Tuesday that his left shoulder is not 100 percent.

Wright has denied in the past that he's still nursing the shoulder injury that originally cropped up in late June. However, after hitting coach Lamar Johnson said in an interview Tuesday that Wright is still ailing, the third baseman didn't deny it, but he also refused to blame it for his struggles. "Everybody has an opinion,'' Wright said. "Lamar sees me on a daily basis. Is the shoulder 100 percent? No. But that takes rest, and that's what the offseason's for. But is that the reason that I'm struggling the way I'm struggling? No. So, I think it's not a reasonable assessment as to why I'm playing poorly.'' Wright, who is also battling a minor neck ailment, is hitting .244/.306/.315 with just two homers over 44 games since the injury. It's hard to believe that he'll be a reliable fantasy option during the final month.

Matt Shoemaker yielded only two hits and no runs over seven innings in an 8-2 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday.

The pressure is on Shoemaker to prove he's a viable mid-rotation starter -- and playoff option -- with 13-game winner Garrett Richards lost for the season with a torn left patellar tendon. You wouldn't know it's fazing him. One day after Richards' ligament snapped, Shoemaker entered the seventh inning with a no-hitter and finished with 7 2/3 shutout frames against the Red Sox. Tonight he was nearly unhittable as well. Shoemaker, who went undrafted out of college and represents a huge victory for Los Angeles' scouting department, is 4-0 with a 0.77 ERA in his last four outings. The right-hander improves to 13-4 with a 3.33 ERA overall. Shoemaker hosts the A's in his next turn.

Buster Posey belted his 16th and 17th home runs of the season and accounted for all of San Francisco's offense in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the Rockies.

This was his second career multi-homer game (the other coming in 2010). Posey knocked in RBI 63 and 64 while taking Rockies' starter Jorge De La Rosa deep in the sixth inning, and got his 65th with an emphatic eighth inning homer off Brooks Brown. Posey might have gotten JDLR at less than full strength -- the hurler suffered a thumb contusion while batting in the top half of the frame -- but he certainly won't give it back (De La Rosa was immediately removed once Posey crossed home plate). Posey finished the game 2-for-4. The catcher is slashing .288/.346/.457.
