Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Jeremy Jeffress from Triple-A Buffalo.

Jeffress was designated for assignment shortly after the beginning of the season, but he's earned his way back by posting a 1.65 ERA while striking out a batter per inning at Triple-A. He'll work the middle innings.

Marcell Ozuna was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals because he overslept.

The Cardinals had to send somebody to Ozuna's apartment to wake him up and he did not arrive at Busch Stadium until after the game had started. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny came to Ozuna's defense in his postgame presser, telling reporters that Ozuna "couldn’t be any more regretful for not being here today on time" and that the team would "move forward." But it's obviously a really bad look for a guy who's batting just .253/.295/.331 through 44 games in his first year with the club.

Clayton Kershaw (biceps) threw an extended bullpen session on Wednesday.

Manger Dave Roberts told reports that Kershaw "felt good" after the bullpen, although he added that it was more about how he felt physically than his execution. The star southpaw will next throw a simulated game on Saturday assuming there are no setbacks from the bullpen, and then he'll likely make 1-2 rehab starts before rejoining the Dodgers' rotation at some point in early June.

Tyson Ross was excellent in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday, allowing one run in 6 2/3 innings with nine strikeouts in a 3-1 victory.

Matt Adams had three hits and a homer off of Ross. The rest of the Nationals lineup had two hits total. It's just another in an excellent stretch of starts for the 31-year-old right-hander, and his ERA is now down to 3.13 on the season. One can't help but wonder what the Padres could get in return for the right-hander, but for now, he's the team's best starting pitcher. We'll see him back on the bump for San Diego against the Marlins next Tuesday.

Justin Verlander allowed three hits and one run over six dominant innings Wednesday in the Astros’ win over San Francisco.

He cashed out with nine strikeouts and only one walk over 97 pitches. The only hint of trouble for Verlander came in the fourth when Gorkys Hernandez led off the inning with a triple to center field and later scored on a sac fly by Buster Posey. Incredibly, Verlander’s ERA actually went up (from 1.05 to 1.08) as a result of Wednesday’s outing. He’s been practically unbeatable since joining Houston last summer. The former MVP will try for his seventh win Monday versus the Yankees. He struck out 14 over eight shutout innings in his previous start against them on May 1.

George Springer added two hits including his 10th homer Wednesday in the Astros’ 4-1 win over the Giants.

Springer singled off Jeff Samardzija (literally—he drilled a comebacker off his right hand) for Houston’s first hit of the afternoon, then broke a 1-1 tie by sending a two-run homer out to the train tracks in left field. The reigning World Series MVP has been excellent as usual for the first-place Astros, slashing .294/.353/.500 with 10 round-trippers, 31 RBI and 36 runs scored.

Mitch Haniger (wrist) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

Haniger will sit wth a contusion in his right wrist, and Jon Andreoli will take his place in the lineup and make his major league debut. Haniger suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch by Trevor Cahill, and is considered day-to-day with x-rays coming back negative. A trip to the disabled list will likely be avoided.
May 23 - 6:23 PM

Michael Fulmer scattered four hits and one run over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Tigers’ win over Minnesota.

He fanned five and walked three over a season-high 113 pitches. Fulmer gave up two hits and a run in the first inning but settled down after that, allowing just two more hits the rest of the way. Wednesday’s victory was Fulmer’s first since April 7. He’ll try to make it two straight when he takes the mound Tuesday against the Angels.
May 23 - 6:15 PM

Jean Segura (shoulder) is batting first and playing shortstop on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Segura jammed is shoulder when he slid into Jonathan Lucroy's leg while scoring the go-ahead run in an extra-innings victory over the A's on Tuesday, but he's apparently feeling well enough to play against the Athletics. In 46 games this year, Segura is hitting .315 with 11 steals, three homers and 33 RBI.
May 23 - 6:06 PM

Jesus Aguilar drove in three of the Brewers’ nine runs Wednesday in a win over Arizona.

Aguilar began the day with an RBI single in the first, then plated two more runs with another single in the fourth inning. He scored later in that frame on Travis Shaw’s three-run homer off Zack Godley. Aguilar has done an admirable job filling in for Eric Thames at first base, batting .324 with seven homers in 111 at-bats this season. Despite his recent success, the 27-year-old is still available in half of all Yahoo leagues.
May 23 - 5:20 PM

Zack Godley got rocked for seven hits and eight runs (six earned) in just 3 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ loss to Milwaukee.

Godley walked six and struck out three while throwing 50 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Arizona actually held a 2-1 lead going into the fourth inning but that’s when the wheels fell off for Godley, who yielded four hits, two walks and seven runs in the frame before finally getting the hook from manager Torey Lovullo. One of those hits included a three-run homer by Travis Shaw. The right-hander is now 0-3 with a 5.27 ERA in five starts this month. He’ll look to bounce back Tuesday at home against Cincinnati. The reeling D’Backs have now lost 13 of their last 14 including seven straight.
May 23 - 5:15 PM

Athletics placed DH Khris Davis on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 21 with a right groin strain.

Davis was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain after an MRI on Tuesday. He suffered the injury on a swing against the Blue Jays on Sunday's series finale, and was out of the lineup on Tuesday against the Mariners. In 47 games, Davis has hit 13 homers and driven in 38 runs with an .805 OPS.
