Howie Kendrick is day-to-day after being diagnosed with a sprained left knee.

The good news is that he doesn't have structural damage in the knee, but the bad news is that he won't play for at least the next few days. The Angels will re-evaluate him at the end of the week to see how much progress he's made. Grant Green will handle second base while Kendrick is out.

Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, leading the Yankees past the Royals on Wednesday.

Rodriguez broke a 1-1 tie with a three-run home run to left field off of Chris Young. The 39-year-old now has 665 home runs in his career and is five RBI shy of 2,000. For the season, Rodriguez is hitting .276/.374/.566 with 11 home runs and 26 RBI.

Lucas Duda hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in a 3-for-4 effort Wednesday as the Mets topped the Phillies.

Duda started the scoring in the first inning with a solo shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He victimized O'Sullivan again in the fifth with another solo blast, the last of four home runs the Mets hit against the Phillies' right-hander. Duda also had a multi-homer game on May 21, giving him five in his last six games. He has eight total on the season along with 23 RBI and a .305/.400/.539 batting line.

Nolan Arenado singled and smacked a three-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

Arenado got things going in the first inning, taking Mike Leake deep with two outs and two aboard. The talented third baseman had been in a bit of a funk but has snapped out of it in a big way of late, going 9-for-16 with three dingers and 10 RBI over his last four games. He now has 10 home runs and 31 RBI for the season.

Felix Hernandez tossed a four-hit shutout against the Rays on Wednesday, improving to 8-1.

Hernandez scattered four hits -- all singles -- and a walk while striking out eight to cinch his second shutout of the season. The right-hander has been predictably stellar through 10 starts, sitting on a 1.91 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and a 71/15 K/BB ratio in 70 2/3 innings. Hernandez will look for his ninth win in his next start at home against the Yankees.
May 27 - 3:33 PM

Nelson Cruz broke a scoreless tie with a three-run home run in the ninth inning, leading the Mariners past the Rays on Wednesday.

Closer Brad Boxberger started the ninth inning for the Rays. After consecutive strikeouts, he walked back-to-back batters to bring Cruz to the plate. He lifted a Boxberger fastball to straightaway center field for a three-run jack. Cruz, who went 1-for-4 on the afternoon, has 18 homers on the year along with 38 RBI and a monster .341/.395/.687 triple-slash line.
May 27 - 3:30 PM

Gerrit Cole held the Marlins to two runs over seven innings, earning the win on Wednesday.

Both runs scored on solo home runs from Justin Bour and Christian Yelich. Cole was in line for the loss until the Pirates rallied for five runs in the bottom of the seventh. The right-hander allowed seven hits overall while walking none and striking out seven. Cole has allowed two or fewer runs in eight of his 10 starts and is now 7-2 with a 2.11 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP, and a 70/14 K/BB ratio in 64 innings. His next start will come on the road against the Giants.
May 27 - 3:17 PM

Cardinals placed 1B Matt Adams on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.

It's not clear at this point how severe the strain is, so a timetable for Adams' return isn't known at the moment. It certainly figures to be more than a minimum stay on the DL, though, and could be a rather lengthy one. Mark Reynolds will handle first base in the meantime.
May 27 - 2:33 PM

Orioles designated OF Alejandro De Aza for assignment.

He played really well for the O's last year down the stretch of the regular season and in the playoffs, but they've decided to cut him loose after his slow start in 2015. De Aza, who batted leadoff for Baltimore on Opening Day, has hit just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games this season and was seeing his playing time dwindle. He's making $5 million this season, which means he'll almost surely clear waivers.
May 27 - 2:15 PM

Braves activated 3B Chris Johnson from the 15-day disabled list.

He had been slated to return on Thursday, but the Braves moved his arrival up a day following their trade with the Dodgers. Once the deal becomes official, Johnson will share third base with Juan Uribe. He's hitting .279/.347/.372 over 16 contests for Atlanta this season.
May 27 - 2:03 PM

Justin Verlander (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

The Tigers wanted to make sure he felt fine after Tuesday's simulated game, and it appears it's all systems go. Verlander will throw 80-85 pitches in the outing and whether he makes an additional rehab start will depend "on how the first one goes," according to manager Brad Ausmus. The righty could be activated as soon as June 5 if he pitches and feels well on Sunday.
May 27 - 1:48 PM

Angels acquired OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis from the Mets in exchange for cash considerations.

Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment last week and has now found a new home. He can back up at all three outfield spots for the Halos. The 27-year-old has fared well in the minors but sports just a .230/.302/.374 batting line over parts of four seasons in the majors.
