Mets activated OF Lucas Duda from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Duda is recovered from the strained intercostal muscle that he suffered back in June but the Mets apparently aren't ready to welcome him back. The 27-year-old outfielder will continue to work on his timing in Vegas. He had a decent .791 OPS and 11 home runs in 68 games this season for New York before hitting the disabled list.

Logan Forsythe (groin) could miss the next two games.

Forsythe made an early exit Tuesday night against the Orioles after experiencing tightness in his left groin. He's scheduled to field grounders Wednesday during batting practice but won't push it too hard.

Wilmer Flores has been excused from the Mets until Friday due to a family emergency.

Flores' grandfather had a heart attack so he's rushing home to Venezuela. New York won't put him on the family medical emergency list because major league rosters have already expanded. He should be in Miami on Friday.

Maikel Franco felt lingering discomfort in his left wrist Wednesday while trying to take batting practice.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com says the Phillies are going to back off Franco, which could very well mean that the 23-year-old third baseman is done for the season. He got hit on the left wrist by a pitch on August 11 against the Diamondbacks and hasn't played since. Franco is sitting on an .830 OPS, 13 home runs, and 48 RBI.

Steven Souza (hand) is scheduled to begin playing in rehab games Saturday with Triple-A Durham.

Souza will remain with Durham through Monday and could then be cleared to return to the Rays' active roster. The 26-year-old outfielder has been on the disabled list since August 1 with a fracture in his left hand. He has 15 homers and 10 steals in 308 at-bats this season, showing glimpses of his high-level fantasy potential in what has mostly been a frustrating 2015.

Michael Wacha has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the Nationals.

Tyler Lyons is going to take the hill instead. No word yet on the reason for bumping Wacha, but it could be similar to the Cardinals' decision to skip Carlos Martinez on Tuesday. That was more of a workload protection thing here in early September, though the Cardinals claimed publicly that Martinez had a sore back. Wacha was spotted flying model planes in the Busch Stadium outfield on Wednesday afternoon. All is well.
Sep 2 - 4:04 PM

Mike Moustakas (hamstring) remained out of the Royals' lineup Wednesday.

Moustakas is dealing with a minor hamstring issue and has missed the last two contests. He's considered day-to-day. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base in his place.
Sep 2 - 3:56 PM

Kyle Schwarber has been scratched from Wednesday's lineup and will undergo an MRI due to right rib soreness.

Schwarber could have hurt himself on a dive Tuesday, as he then felt soreness while taking batting practice Wednesday. The Cubs are saying the MRI is precautionary and they're hoping he'll be ready to go Friday after Thursday's off day. Chris Coghlan is in left field and Austin Jackson in right.
Sep 2 - 1:50 PM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Ramirez hasn't played in a week due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He'll play first base when he does return to action, but Travis Shaw is at the position again Wednesday.
Sep 2 - 12:30 PM

Jorge Soler (oblique) hopes to resume swinging a bat on Friday.

Soler has been sidelined for over a week with a strained left oblique. The outfielder maintains hope of returning to action at some point later this month, but he has no timetable. Chris Coghlan has been starting in right field with Soler out.
Sep 2 - 12:16 PM

Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

Simmons missed the last two contests with inflammation in his right ankle. The slick-fielding shortstop is hitting a disappointing .265/.331/.342 with three homers this season.
Sep 2 - 10:36 AM

George Springer (wrist) will be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

Springer will talk to Astros manager A.J. Hinch on Thursday after what could be his final rehab game with Double-A Corpus Christi. Assuming he tells the skipper that his wrist feels fine, he should be back in the Astros' lineup on Friday. Springer has four hits in 16 at-bats in his first four rehab games with Corpus Christi. He's been sidelined since early July with a fractured right wrist.
