Francisco Liriano will be available out of the bullpen in Wednesday's NLDS Game 5 against the Cardinals.

Liriano will be the safety net for the Bucs in case Game 5 starter Gerrit Cole gets himself into early trouble. Liriano allowed just two runs on three hits over six innings in a strong NLDS Game 3 start versus St. Louis.

Jung Ho Kang is out of the Pirates' lineup Thursday.

Kang was also given a day off Tuesday. He's been worked hard in his first major league season and Jordy Mercer is back from injury to take some of the reps at shortstop. Mercer will start there and bat eighth versus Miami on Thursday evening.

Yasiel Puig was removed from Thursday's game against the Reds after re-injuring his right hamstring.

Puig pulled up lame after legging out an infield single against Aroldis Chapman in the top of the ninth inning. The 24-year-old Cuban outfielder could be looking at yet another extended absence. He's appeared in just 77 games this season for the Dodgers.

Gregor Blanco (hip) is out of the Giants' starting lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's game with a left hip strain, but he felt good running in the outfield on Thursday morning and could be available off the bench already. Juan Perez is starting in center field and batting seventh on Thursday afternoon.

Adrian Gonzalez left Thursday's game against the Reds after fouling a ball off his left knee.

Scott Van Slyke took over at first base for the Dodgers. Gonzalez grounded out in the first inning and struck out in the third. He's considered day-to-day with a contusion.

Brandon Crawford (oblique) is out of the Giants' starting lineup again on Thursday.

Crawford could need a couple more days to rest his tight left oblique. Ehire Adrianza is starting at shortstop and batting eighth on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Thursday that there are no current plans to call up Aaron Judge.

But that does't mean it won't happen at some point in September. Judge, a consensus top-75 prospect ahead of the 2015 season, is batting .262/.337/.469 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI in 122 games this year between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The 23-year-old corner outfield prospect would make sense as a bench bat for the stretch run.
Aug 27 - 1:47 PM

Matt Duffy (ankle) is in the Giants' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

Duffy suffered a right ankle sprain on Wednesday, but it obviously wasn't a significant one. He drew a walk, stole a base, and scored a run in the win. The National League Rookie of the Year candidate is batting .306/.345/.465 in 113 total games this year.
Aug 27 - 1:44 PM

Dexter Fowler is out of the Cubs' lineup again on Thursday due to discomfort in his right shin.

Fowler also missed Wednesday's game, but X-rays turned up negative and he should be good to go sometime this weekend. Kris Bryant is in right field, Chris Denorfia is in left field, and Matt Szczur is in center field Thursday against the Giants. Denorfia will lead off.

According to Jim Hayes of CBS Sports 920 in St. Louis, general manager John Mozeliak told Adam Wainwright (heel) to "pump the brakes" on his public predictions that he will be able to return this year.

Wainwright has maintained the entire summer that he is working to rejoin the Cardinals before the end of the season, but the rehab for a ruptured Achilles tendon -- which Waino suffered in late April -- typically takes 10-12 months. It's a nice carrot for Wainwright to dangle in front of himself through a tedious recovery process, but the 33-year-old right-hander can be safely ruled out until 2016. St. Louis pitchers boast an MLB-best 2.65 combined ERA so far in 2015.

David Freese (finger) is expected to be activated from the disabled list early next week in Oakland.

Freese has been with Triple-A Salt Lake since Sunday and will begin playing third base there on Friday. The third baseman has been on the disabled list since July 23 with a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger. He's hitting .240/.309/.397 with 11 home runs and 43 RBI in 90 games this season for the Angels.

Lorenzo Cain is out of the Royals' lineup Thursday.

Jarrod Dyson will start in center field and Paulo Orlando will start in left field in the Royals' series finale against the Orioles. It's just a day of rest for Cain, who's been one of the best players in baseball in 2015.
