An X-ray on Buster Posey's right ring finger showed a small fracture.

The fracture is at the very tip of the finger. Posey will try to play through the pain but will be sidelined for at least a few more days. "Hopefully in a couple days it'll calm down and I can play through it," the catcher said.

Francisco Cervelli is out again Wednesday.

It's the second day off in a row for Cervelli, who's batting .193/.277/.211 in 16 games this month. He signed a three-year, $31 million contract extension with the Pirates on May 17. Chris Stewart will start at catcher and bat eighth versus the Diamondbacks.

Travis Shaw (hand) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday versus the Rockies.

Shaw sat out Tuesday with a minor left hand injury. It was probably just soreness. He will start at third base and bat seventh against Colorado righty Chad Bettis.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) threw four scoreless innings Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It was the third rehab start for Ryu, who remains on track for a mid-June season debut. The left-hander struck out three, walked none, and scattered five hits over his four shutout frames. He induced a ton of groundballs, which is usually a positive sign that his stuff is working. Ryu and his 3.17 career major league ERA are worth stashing in all mixed fantasy leagues.

Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Wednesday in Tampa Bay.

Yelich has now missed four straight games with what's being called "back spasms." Cole Gillespie will start in left field and bat eighth against Matt Andriese.

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

Ichiro Suzuki will play right field and bat leadoff versus Rays right-hander Matt Andriese. Stanton hit his 12th home run of the season on Tuesday night, but he had been in a minor slump since an outfield collision with Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. He'll take a day of mental and physical rest.
May 25 - 2:39 PM

Denard Span is getting a normal day of rest Wednesday.

He was in the original lineup, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy ultimately elected to give the 32-year-old outfielder a day off for the matinee game versus the Padres. Span should be fine to return to action for Friday's series opener at Coors Field. Gregor Blanco is starting in center field Wednesday and Kelby Tomlinson is playing left.
May 25 - 2:35 PM

Blue Jays activated 2B Devon Travis from the 15-day disabled list.

Travis will make his triumphant return on Wednesday night against the Yankees. It will be his first game since last July 28, when he hit the disabled list for a second time with a left shoulder injury. The injury would eventually require season-ending surgery. Travis batted .304/.361/.498 with eight homers and three steals in 62 games last year for Toronto and he swung the bat well on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment. The 25-year-old second baseman is a must-own.
May 25 - 2:29 PM

Wil Myers (forearm) is out again Wednesday.

Myers felt discomfort in his troublesome left forearm late Monday while picking up a baseball. It's not considered a serious setback, but the Padres will play it cautiously just in case. Brett Wallace is at first base Wednesday versus Giants righty Jake Peavy.
May 25 - 1:31 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with back spasms.

Cabrera left Wednesday's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the first inning, with Matt Reynolds taking over at shortstop. Asdrubal apparently felt the discomfort during pregame warmups. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but you never know with the Mets and their recent rash of back issues.
May 25 - 1:28 PM

Hunter Pence (hamstring) remains absent from the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

Pence has been dealing with right hamstring discomfort since Saturday and told reporters Tuesday that he plans to take it easy and let the muscle fully heal. There's a chance he could return Friday after Thursday's scheduled off day, but it's not guaranteed. Jarrett Parker is starting in left field and Gregor Blanco is in right field Wednesday versus Padres right-hander James Shields.
May 25 - 1:25 PM

Buster Posey is not in the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres.

It's just a standard day of rest for Posey. Trevor Brown will get the start at catcher and bat eighth with the Padres throwing right-hander James Shields.
