Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that Jon Niese (shoulder) has begun long-tossing in Florida.

Niese was cleared to resume throwing earlier this week after having his shoulder examined. The southpaw was diagnosed with a partial tear of his rotator cuff last month, so the Mets will see how he responds to the increased workload before sending him out on a minor league rehab assignment. He could be activated at some point in August if he can avoid setbacks.

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

Iglesias will be out now for at least 10 days. He hadn't pitched since May 19 when he 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.

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.
May 23 - 4:03 PM

Starling Marte (oblique) ran the bases on Wednesday.

Marte is easing back into baseball activities as he works his way back from a strained right oblique. Obviously, the bigger test will be when he's taking batting practice again, as he should be game-ready shortly after that. He's missed the last week of action.
May 23 - 3:27 PM

Wilson Ramos (hand) is out of the Rays' lineup Wednesday.

Ramos exited Tuesday's game after a foul tip caught his left hand. X-rays came back clean, but it's no surprise that he's sitting out this one. He's considered day-to-day. Jesus Sucre will catch Wednesday.
May 23 - 2:35 PM

Nelson Cruz (elbow) is expected to return to the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.

Cruz hasn't played since being hit on the left elbow by a pitch Saturday, but he's feeling better and manager Scott Servais indicated that the slugger probably could've played Tuesday, but "I wanted to give Nelson another day." Cruz has been banged up often this season, dealing with a sprained ankle and bruised foot in addition to the elbow malady.

Marcell Ozuna has been scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday versus the Royals.

No reason has been given yet. Tyler O'Neill is now starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Kansas City right-hander Jake Junis.

Juan Soto will bat second for the Nationals on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres.

It's the highest lineup slot to date for Soto, who batted sixth on Monday and Tuesday. The 19-year-old top outfield prospect has three hits, a homer, three RBI, and three walks through his first nine plate appearances at the major league level.
May 23 - 12:39 PM

Nationals recalled RHP Erick Fedde from Triple-A Syracuse.

Fedde will make a spot start for the Nats on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres. He's registered a weak 4.35 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings (eight starts) this season at Triple-A, but the 25-year-old former first-round pick makes for a decent fantasy streamer versus a San Diego offense that ranks 29th in team OPS.
May 23 - 12:35 PM

Rays placed RHP Jake Faria on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Faria suffered the oblique strain in the the third inning of his start Tuesday night against the Red Sox and Rays manager Kevin Cash acknowledged after the game that the 24-year-old right-hander will be sidelined for a while. It could be something like 4-6 weeks. Faria has turned in some impressive outings this season, but he holds a poor 5.48 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 37/22 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 overall innings. It's probably safe to drop him in standard redraft leagues.
May 23 - 12:27 PM

Astros placed OF Josh Reddick on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a leg infection.

This has been a lingering thing for Reddick, though he should be able to return from the DL when first eligible late next week. Jake Marisnick will replace him on the Astros' roster for now. Reddick, 31, has a .740 OPS with six homers and one stolen base in 42 games this year.
May 23 - 10:53 AM

Lorenzo Cain is getting the day off Wednesday.

Christian Yelich will start in center field and bat second versus Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Godley, with Hernan Perez in left and Domingo Santana in right. It's just a routine day of rest for Cain, who's slashing .283/.391/.452 with six home runs, 10 stolen bases, and 29 runs scored in 46 games this year.
