David Robertson, not Mariano Rivera, was called upon to protect a one-run lead in Friday's victory against the Astros.

As he often does, Robertson came through the inning unscathed, striking out one in the process. It was a passing of the torch moment for the Yankees, as Robertson is slated to take over as the Yankees primary closer next season with the departure of Mariano Rivera. He now owns a 5-1 record, 2.07 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 77/18 K/BB ratio over 65 1/3 innings while converting three of his five save chances.

Hector Rondon (triceps) reported feeling good after playing catch on Wednesday.

It was his first time throwing since he landed on the disabled list August 19, retroactive to August 17, with a right triceps strain. Rondon plans to throw on flat ground again in a couple days before possibly beginning mound work. There is no exact timetable for his return, but early-to-mid September seems about right at this point.

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski reiterated Wednesday morning that the team is still waiting on a decision from free agent Jonathan Papelbon.

Dombrowski and Co. reached out to Papelbon last week after he was released by the Nationals, but there has been no movement toward a contract agreement. "We did express some interest, but he has to decide what he wants to do," Dombrowski told MLB Network Radio. "We are open, we did call, he has to decide." Papelbon had a 4.37 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 35 innings this season with Washington.

Kyle Seager will be held out Wednesday after fouling a ball off his foot on Tuesday night.

It doesn't sound like anything serious, but the Mariners have a day game against the Yankees and don't want to risk making the matter worse. Seager went 0-for-3 on Tuesday versus New York but still owns a cool .286/.364/.515 batting line with 24 home runs and 83 RBI in 124 games this season for Seattle.

Anthony Rizzo is getting the day off Wednesday.

Kris Bryant will start at first base, Jorge Soler will play left field, and Javier Baez will handle the hot corner in the afternoon finale at San Diego's Petco Park. It's just a routine day of rest for Rizzo.

DJ LeMahieu (wrist) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Brewers.

LeMahieu was a late scratch Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation and is apparently still dealing with some discomfort. Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth on Wednesday afternoon against Zach Davies.

Huston Street underwent successful surgery on his right knee Wednesday.

Street is done for the season, but it was an arthroscopic procedure -- not something more involved -- and the veteran right-hander is expected to be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training next February. He tweeted this from the hospital Wednesday morning: "Just got out of surgery, still pretty loopy, but the doc said I should come back throwing 98, but it could have been 89." Street, 33, finished the 2016 season with a rough 6.45 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, and 14/12 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. Fernando Salas is currently serving as the Angels' closer, by default.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis.

He walked three but struck out six over three scoreless innings Monday with Double-A Altoona. Glasnow could rejoin the Pirates' starting rotation sometime next week if his start at Triple-A goes smoothly. The 23-year-old right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 24 because of shoulder discomfort. He had a 5.40 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 7/5 K/BB ratio over his first two major league starts spanning 8 1/3 innings.

Carlos Correa (illness) is in the Astros' starting lineup Wednesday against the Pirates.

Correa made an early exit from Tuesday night's loss with a stomach bug, but he apparently felt refreshed when he showed back up at Pittsburgh's PNC Park on Wednesday morning. He'll start at shortstop and bat cleanup in the afternoon finale versus Gerrit Cole.
Aug 24 - 10:24 AM

Yulieski Gurriel (hamstring) remains absent from the Astros' lineup on Wednesday.

Gurriel has now started just one of four games since joining the active major league roster on Sunday. He left his MLB debut with tightness in his right hamstring and is still apparently experiencing discomfort. This is probably a good time for a reminder that the Cuban slugger is 32 years old. Alex Bregman will start at third base again and bat second Wednesday versus Pirates ace Gerrit Cole.
Aug 24 - 10:19 AM

Andrew McCutchen is out of the Pirates' lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

Starling Marte is in center field, Gregory Polanco is in left field, and Matt Joyce is in right field in the afternoon tilt versus Houston right-hander Collin McHugh. This appears to be a routine day of rest for McCutchen, who's been hitting the ball well in August.
Aug 24 - 10:15 AM

Orioles placed RHP Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

He is eligible to return from the disabled list September 5 and the O's are hoping he will be ready on that date. Tillman missed a start one week ago after complaining of shoulder discomfort and then got lit up for six earned runs over just two innings Saturday versus the Astros. That blunder aside, he has been the Orioles' most reliable pitcher in 2016 by far. Ubaldo Jimenez and his 6.94 ERA will start in Tillman's place Thursday versus the Nationals.
