Robinson Cano (hand) is not in the Yankees' lineup on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Cano was hit on the left hand with a pitch on Tuesday, but fortunately he managed to avoid a serious injury. He should be ready to go in the next couple of days. Eduardo Nunez will fill in at second base Wednesday.

An MRI taken Saturday morning on the right arm of Jordan Zimmermann showed a biceps strain.

The good news is Zimmermann has no structural damage and might be able to avoid a disabled list stint (with the help of the All-Star break). The right-hander left his start Friday night against the Phillies with what was initially labeled a biceps cramp. He wraps up the first half of the season with a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.

Drew Pomeranz (hand) allowed one run over four innings Saturday in his rehab debut at Triple-A Sacramento.

He struck out seven, walked none, and yielded just one hit -- a solo home run. The left-hander is expected to remain at Sacramento when he's deemed healthy as an emergency option for the Oakland rotation. He's been out since June 17 with a broken right hand.

Andrew McCutchen homered twice to lead the Pirates past the Reds 6-5 on Saturday night.

McCutchen smacked a game-tying solo homer in the top of the ninth inning and then a go-ahead solo shot in the top of the 11th. The reigning National League MVP also doubled in the game. He's batting .325/.422/.573 with 17 homers, 61 RBI, and 15 steals this year for the Bucs.

Ryan Zimmerman hit a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 10th Saturday in a 5-3 win over the Phillies.

It was the only hit of the game for Zimmerman, but it was obviously a big one. He's batting .272/.342/.428 with 28 RBI in 47 games this season for the Nationals, who are tied with the Braves atop the National League East.

Joe Smith tallied his 14th save of the season Saturday in the Angels' 5-2 defeat of the Rangers.

Smith struck out two of the three batters he faced in a perfect ninth inning. He's been fantastic since stepping in permanently as the Angels' closer, now boasting a 2.38 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 41 2/3 total innings this season. The right-hander should remain a strong fantasy piece in the second half as the Angels continue to click.
Jul 12 - 10:45 PM

Rick Porcello fired seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Tigers' 5-1 defeat of the Royals.

It was a terrific bounceback performance from Porcello, who was shelled for seven runs on 11 hits last Sunday by the Rays. Porcello scattered six hits Saturday in Kansas City and struck out three. He'll wrap up the first half with a 12-5 record, 3.39 ERA, and 1.18 WHIP. The right-hander is tied for the American League lead in wins.
Jul 12 - 10:26 PM

Fernando Rodney has been added to the American League All-Star roster.

Rodney is replacing Rays ace David Price, who opted out because he will be starting Sunday versus the Blue Jays. Rodney leads the American League with 27 saves and holds a 1.98 ERA on the season.
Jul 12 - 8:44 PM

Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-4 with three RBI as the Rays routed the Blue Jays 10-3 on Saturday.

Kiermaier hit a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning and added a one-run single in the seventh. He also doubled, and is now batting .310 with a .926 OPS in 47 games this season. It's been a surprising few months from the 24-year-old outfielder, who never really had standout minor league numbers. There could be some serious regression in the second half.
Jul 12 - 7:50 PM

Adam Wainwright limited the Brewers to two runs over seven innings Saturday in a 10-2 Cardinals victory.

Wainwright was staked to a massive early lead and went into cruise control, walking none and fanning four. He'll finish the second half of the 2014 regular season with a fantastic 12-4 record, 1.83 ERA, and 0.91 WHIP. The Cardinals are now tied for first place in the National League Central with the Brewers, who have dropped seven straight games.
Jul 12 - 7:34 PM

Chris Johnson homered twice Saturday as the Braves won an 11-6 shootout against the Cubs.

Both starting pitchers were terrible on a day that the flood gates opened early and often at Wrigley Field. Johnson hit a two-run shot off Edwin Jackson in the top of the second inning and then took E-Jax deep again in the top of the fourth. He finished the afternoon with four RBI.
Jul 12 - 7:24 PM

Shane Greene delivered 7 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday in the Yankees' 3-0 blanking of the Orioles.

Greene struck out nine and surrendered only four hits in the dominant outing. He looks to be locked into a rotation spot with the Yankees, but his numbers at Triple-A were never very good and the 25-year-old right-hander is probably due for some regression in the second half.
