Latest Headlines

Eduardo Nunez (knee) was scratched from the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

Nunez left Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays after tweaking his right knee and apparently didn't feel much better in his pregame workout on Wednesday. The infielder is being called day-to-day for now. Mark Reynolds will start at second base against Toronto.

Wednesday's game between the Indians and Twins has been postponed due to rain.

It will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Thursday with Game 1 beginning at 1:10 ET with Game 2 getting underway at 7:10 ET. Kyle Gibson will oppose Carlos Carrasco in the opener with Jose Berrios and Ryan Merritt facing off in the nightcap.

Wil Myers racked up three steals Wednesday in the Padres’ win over the Phillies.

He reached base four times for the Friars, collecting a single, a double and two walks. Myers accomplished an incredibly rare feat in the fourth inning when he singled, stole second, stole third and later came home on a double steal. Myers hasn’t hit for a high average this year (.240) but his speed/power combo still makes him a valuable fantasy contributor.

Clayton Richard twirled a three-hit shutout Wednesday in a win over the Phillies.

Richard was money all day, recording six strikeouts and only one walk while throwing 72 of his 114 pitches for strikes. He finished strong by retiring the last 10 batters he faced after yielding a two-out walk to Tommy Joseph in the sixth inning. Wednesday was Richard’s second complete game of the season and his first shutout. He’ll take a 4.84 ERA into his next outing Tuesday at St. Louis.

Edwin Diaz collapsed Wednesday against the Orioles, yielding two runs and three walks before being lifted with two outs in the ninth inning.

Just 16 of the right-hander’s 37 pitches went for strikes. Manager Scott Servais decided he’d seen enough after Diaz hit Mark Trumbo with the bases loaded to bring in another run. Mark Rzepczynski came in to record the final out, striking out Chris Davis to preserve the Mariners’ 7-6 victory while earning his first save of the season. Diaz lost his closer’s job for a stretch earlier this year and could be headed that way again, particularly with David Phelps nearing a return from the disabled list.

Tim Beckham homered as part of a two-hit effort Wednesday in the Orioles’ loss to Seattle.

Beckham led off the game with a solo blastn and broke a 3-3 tie with an RBI single in the fifth. He’s been impossibly hot since arriving in a deadline deal trade with Tampa Bay, hitting an absurd .485 for the month of August. The former first overall pick has already established new career-highs in both home runs (17) and RBI (48) and will soon have a chance to unseat J.J. Hardy (wrist) as the team's everyday shortstop.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said Matt Kemp (hamstring) will be the starter in left field when he returns from the disabled list.

Kemp will work out on Friday and if all goes well, he'll be activated Saturday versus Cincinnati. Matt Adams has been manning left field in Kemp's absence, though Snitker was clear that Kemp will be the starter upon his return. With Freddie Freeman back at first base full-time, it looks like Adams will be riding the pine for Atlanta.

Phillies optioned RHP Nick Pivetta to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

This comes after Pivetta scattered five hits and three runs while delivering a career-high 11 strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to San Diego. This is merely a procedural move as Pivetta is fully expected to make his next start. The Phillies have a doubleheader against the Marlins on Tuesday, at which point Pivetta will rejoin the rotation as the team's 26th man.
Aug 16 - 7:18 PM

Cody Bellinger is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

The Rookie of the Year frontrunner will get a rare day off on Wednesday. Rob Segedin will man first base in his absence while batting eighth against Pale Hose left-hander Carlos Rodon. The 22-year-old has cruised to a .333 average with six homers this month.
Aug 16 - 7:12 PM

Lance McCullers (back) is slated to throw another bullpen session on Thursday.

It will be his second bullpen session since going down with a back injury at the end of last month. Manager A.J. Hinch seems to be pleased with McCullers' progress and says there's a rehab assignment "in sight." McCullers earned his first All-Star nod earlier this year but has pitched to a disastrous 9.42 ERA over three second-half starts.
Aug 16 - 6:55 PM

Aroldis Chapman (hamstring) won't be available Wednesday against the Mets.

Chapman is being put through some tests after complaining of a tight hamstring on Tuesday night. Despite his recent struggles, manager Joe Girardi said the Yankees have no plans to remove Chapman from the ninth inning. Should a save situation arise, David Robertson will operate as the closer on Wednesday night.
Aug 16 - 6:10 PM

Masahiro Tanaka (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

It will be the right-hander's first mound session since landing on the DL with right shoulder inflammation last week. The Yankees are hoping to have Tanaka back next week against Detroit. He's looked much better since the All-Star break, contributing a 3.13 ERA over five second-half starts.
