Astros recalled INF Marwin Gonzalez from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Gonzalez will provide middle infield depth behind Jonathan Villar and Jake Elmore. He batted .230/.250/.339 in 54 games with the Astros earlier this season.

Jon Lester tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Cubs' 6-2 victory over the Pirates.

Lester ran into a couple of jams, yielding eight total hits and walking two, but he did a fine job of damage control as usual on the way to five strikeouts. The left-hander is now 3-1 with a 1.58 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 38/9 K/BB ratio in 40 innings this season for the first-place Cubs. He will take on the punchless Padres at home next time out.

Jean Segura (hip) is out again Wednesday.

Segura also sat out Sunday and Tuesday with a nagging hip issue. It's thought to be minor. Phil Gosselin will start at second base and bat leadoff for Arizona on Wednesday night against Marlins ace Jose Fernandez.
May 4 - 3:51 PM

Steven Matz fired 7 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Mets' 8-0 blanking of the Braves.

Matz didn't walk a batter, gave up just two hits -- both singles -- and struck out eight. The young left-hander struggled in his 2016 debut April 11 against the Marlins, but he has been absolutely sensational since. Matz will carry a 2.83 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Dodgers. He also boasts a 30/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.

Yankees placed DH Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

A-Rod suffered the injury in the fifth inning Tuesday while running to first base. The veteran slugger is probably going to need more than the typical 15 days off. Dustin Ackley replaced him at designated hitter on Tuesday night, but look for the Yankees to work in several different names through that DH spot.
May 4 - 3:34 PM

Zach Britton (ankle) threw a 10-pitch bullpen session Wednesday without issue.

Britton has been on the shelf since spraining his left ankle last Saturday, but his return now appears imminent. Darren O'Day has been serving as the O's fill-in closer and earned his second save of 2016 on Tuesday.
May 4 - 3:31 PM

Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Reds' 7-4 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Suarez slugged a two-run homer off Giants starter Jake Peavy in the bottom of the second -- one of three homers in that frame versus Peavy. The third baseman then added an RBI single in the bottom of the third. Suarez has been slumping a bit since his hot start, but he now boasts six homers and 18 RBI in just 27 games.
May 4 - 3:28 PM

Aledmys Diaz is batting leadoff for the Cardinals on Wednesday night against the Phillies.

It will be his first time hitting anywhere higher than seventh in the St. Louis lineup. Diaz boasts an incredible .388/.424/.700 slash line with five home runs and 14 RBI over his first 25 major league games.
May 4 - 2:51 PM

Justin Bour is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday after dislocating his pinkie Tuesday.

Derek Dietrich will start at first base and bat fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Rubby De La Rosa. It's not clear how much time Bour might miss.

Dodgers director of player development Gabe Kapler announced Wednesday that Erisbel Arruebarrena has been suspended for the rest of the season "for repeated failure to comply with the terms of his contract."

This is the same thing the Dodgers tried to do last May, but a grievance was filed and the suspension was reduced to 30 days. It might be best if these two parties simply go their separate ways, though the Dodgers still owe Arruebarrena around $17.5 million. The 26-year-old infielder was signed out of Cuba in 2013 and has been a major disappointment both off and on the field. He was slashing .182/.224/.400 with four home runs and 21 strikeouts in 17 games this season at Double-A Tulsa.

Ben Revere (oblique) is expected to rejoin the Nationals on Thursday at Wrigley Field.

Revere played a full nine innings of center field Tuesday in his fifth minor league rehab game and came out of it feeling fine. He's been on the disabled list since suffering a strained oblique in the Nationals' regular-season opener. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are probably both looking at a reduction in playing time with Revere returning to starting center field duties.
May 4 - 12:31 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that he has increasing interest in free agent Tim Lincecum.

Lincecum is scheduled to throw a showcase for interested teams on Friday in Arizona, and over 20 major league clubs are expected to have a representative in attendance. Bochy and the Giants are viewing Lincecum as a potential long reliever. The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner probably prefers to start.
