ESPN's Buster Olney says "there are no legs" to the Yankees' reported interest in Justin Masterson.

The Yankees probably don't have the prospects to pull off a deal anyway. Masterson, 28, posted an outstanding 3.45 ERA this past season for the Indians, fanning 193 batters in 195 innings. The Diamondbacks have been suggested as a potential trade partner for the Tribe.

Wednesday's game between the Pirates and Brewers has been postponed.

There was hope that the game could be played, but ultimately there was too much rain and not enough of a window for it to start. There's no word yet as to when the game will be rescheduled.

Shelby Miller (elbow) is likely to start on Monday against the Marlins.

Matt Koch was sent to Triple-A Reno on Wednesday, and reliever Jake Barrett was Koch's replacement. That sets things up for Miller to start for the Diamondbacks against the Marlins, and it'll be his first start since 2017 after undergoing Tommy John surgery last April. He owns a 4.66 ERA in those rehab starts, but he's also struck out 28 hitters in 19 1/3 innings. Miller will likely be working on strict pitch/inning counts, but when fully healthy, he's shown swing-and-miss stuff. He's an interesting speculative buy for the 2018 campaign.

Brandon Belt went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 6-5 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Belt's RBI came on a ground-rule double, and he had two more singles in the contest. The three hits push his average to .305 on the 2018 campaign, and it's his 35th RBI in 58 games with the Giants. He's looked like the same hitter he was before the emergency appendectomy, and somewhat quietly, he's been one of the best first baseman in all of baseball in 2018.

An MRI revealed that Jay Bruce is dealing with a strain in his right hip.

Bruce was placed on the disabled list on June 19 -- retroactive to June 18 -- with a hip injury after missing four of the past five games with discomfort in his hip and back. Signed to a $39 million, three-year deal in the offseason, Bruce is hitting .212/.292/.321 with three homers and 17 RBI in 236 plate appearances with the Mets. He should be back with New York by the end of June.

Jon Lester limited the Dodgers to five hits over seven scoreless innings Wednesday in the Cubs’ 4-0 victory.

Lester mostly pitched to contact, recording just one strikeout against three walks. Seventy of the left-hander’s season-high 119 pitches went for strikes. Lester only set the Dodgers down in order once—that was his last inning—but managed to keep L.A. off the scoreboard nonetheless (the Dodgers left seven men on base). Lester has pitched to an impressive 1.64 ERA during his five-start winning streak. He’ll look to make it six straight next Tuesday against the same Dodgers team he just beat.

Javier Baez delivered three hits and a stolen base Wednesday in the Cubs’ victory over the Dodgers.

All three of his hits went for extra bases. Baez doubled in the second, doubled and scored in the fifth and tripled and scored in the seventh. He also made a great play in the field, diving to double up Enrique Hernandez at second base in the eighth inning. Baez is in the midst of a breakout season for the Cubs, tying for third in the NL in triples (six) and fifth in steals (13). Don’t be surprised if he represents Chicago at next month’s All-Star Game.

Corey Kluber dominated Wednesday, allowing just one hit over seven shutout frames in the Indians’ 12-0 victory over the White Sox.

He racked up seven Ks and only walked one batter. Kluber probably had another inning in him—he left after 95 pitches—but manager Terry Francona played it safe with Cleveland staked to a commanding 11-0 lead. The only hit he gave up came in the second inning when Omar Narvaez plopped a two-out single to left field. The reigning AL Cy Young winner leads the majors with 11 victories and also ranks second in WHIP (0.81) and fifth in ERA (2.10). He gets the Cardinals in his next start Monday at Busch Stadium.

Ryan Braun is undergoing a cyrotherapy session on his right thumb and will not be with the team on Wednesday.

It's a procedure that Braun has undergone before, and it doesn't sound like it's a serious injury. The plan is for the veteran to rejoin the Brewers in Milwaukee; and the team will be back in their home park starting on Thursday to face the Cardinals. There's a chance Braun could miss more than the two games with the injection, but it doesn't sound like he'll need to be placed on the disabled list.

Jose Ramirez slammed his 22nd homer Wednesday in the Indians’ win over Chicago.

Ramirez got Cleveland on the board with a three-run bomb in the first inning. He also walked and stole a base in the fifth before scoring on Yonder Alonso’s RBI double. Ramirez was intentionally walked in the sixth and scored later in the frame on a wild pitch by Bruce Rondon. The 25-year-old now ranks second in the AL in homers (22), fourth in RBI (50), fourth in slugging (.611) and fourth in OPS (1.002). He’s right there with Mike Trout and Mookie Betts in the AL MVP race.
Jun 20 - 5:06 PM

J.A. Happ surrendered six hits and four runs over 8 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Blue Jays’ win over Atlanta.

Happ struck out eight and didn’t walk anyone over a season-high 113 pitches. The left-hander was hoping for his first complete game in eight years, but ran out of gas in the ninth inning, yielding hits to Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis before getting pulled for Ryan Tepera, who allowed both inherited runners to score. Atlanta’s other two runs came on solo blasts by Kurt Suzuki and Peter Bourjos in the second and third innings respectively. Wednesday extended Happ’s unbeaten streak to seven starts. He’ll take an impressive 9-3 record into his next appearance Monday at Houston.

Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 with another home run Wednesday in the Phillies' 4-3 defeat of the Cardinals.

Herrera doubled in the first inning, singled in the third inning, and cranked a go-ahead solo homer off Cardinals reliever Sam Tuivailala in the bottom of the seventh. The 26-year-old outfielder has now gone yard in four straight games and has boosted his season slash line to .299/.355/.491. He has 12 total homers and 41 total RBI.
