John Perrotto of the Beaver County Times writes that the Pirates "want (Kendrys) Morales at their price and will stay patient until his asking price is lowered."

Perrotto says the team is "more willing to consider" forfeiting a draft pick to sign a free agent like Morales because they don't pick until No. 25. The Pirates are already paying Gaby Sanchez $2.3 million and Perrotto says the club doesn't want to spend "something in the range of $10 million on first basemen." Given that Morales turned down a $14.1 million qualifying offer, it appears significant ground will need to be made up. The good news for the Bucs is that the market for Morales looks to be almost non-existent at this point.

Michael Pineda was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday's game at Fenway Park for having a foreign substance on his neck.

Two starts ago -- against the same Red Sox club -- Pineda made news for what appeared to be a foreign substance on his hand. When questioned about the substance after that start, Pineda called it "dirt." Fool me once, shame one you, but Red Sox manager John Farrell wasn't going to be fooled again. Pineda could be in for a 10-game suspension as a result of the ejection.

Hector Sanchez hit a grand slam in the 11th inning -- his second home run of the game -- and the Giants outlasted the Rockies for a 12-10 win on Wednesday.

The teams combined for 22 runs and 29 hits, with Sanchez accounting for four of those runs on one swing. Getting the start for Buster Posey behind the plate, Sanchez also added a solo homer in the eighth inning. They were his first two home runs of the year, and his five RBI more than doubled his total heading into the game.

Clayton Kershaw (back) will make his first rehab start Friday at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.

The left-hander will require more than one rehab start before returning, but Friday's start is a big step in that direction. He'll throw 50-55 pitches in the start as he builds up stamina. Assuming the starts go well, Kershaw should be back with the Dodgers by mid-May as anticipated.

Kyle Seager slugged a walkoff three-run homer Wednesday in the Mariners' 5-3 win over the Astros.

Seager also hit a two-run shot in the seventh inning, finishing the afternoon with five total RBI. The talented third baseman got off to a slow start this season but is capable of turning things around in a hurry. He finished 22 home runs and 69 RBI in 2013.

Martin Perez threw his second straight complete game shutout on Wednesday, limiting the A's to three hits in the Rangers' 3-0 victory.

It was actually Perez' third straight start in which he's gone at least eight shutout innings. On Wednesday, Perez had the sinker working, inducing 17 groundouts while striking out just three. He now owns a 4-0 record, 1.42 ERA and 0.92 WHIP through 38 innings of work this season. He'll look to keep his scoreless streak going against this same Athletics club Tuesday.

Adam Wainwright (knee) completed a normal workout without issue on Wednesday.

Wainwright hyperextended his right knee during the seventh inning of Tuesday's game, leaving after 79 pitches. He said after the game that he expects to make his next start, and he reiterated that again Wednesday. Whether he does is ultimately up to manager Mike Matheny and the Cardinals training staff, but he appears to have avoided anything serious, at the very least.

Justin Ruggiano will have X-rays done on his injured left hamstring.

Ruggiano left Wednesday's game after making a sliding attempt on a fly ball in the ninth inning. He had to be helped off the field, an indication that the injury could be serious. At this point, a trip to the disabled list seems likely.

Mark Trumbo has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot.

It was originally called "soreness," but an MRI taken Wednesday revealed a broken bone. Trumbo is headed back to Arizona for further examination. The 28-year-old slugger could be looking at an extended absence.

Aaron Hill finished 4-for-5 with two RBI in the Diamondbacks' 7-5 comeback win over the Cubs on Wednesday in the 100th anniversary game at Wrigley Field.

Hill's two-run blooper to right field in the top of the ninth inning put the D'Backs ahead for good. It was part of a five-run rally against the Chicago bullpen that quickly lifted Arizona out of a 5-2 deficit. Hill is batting just .240/.284/.385 on the season, but he is capable of getting hot in a hurry. The D'Backs are now 6-18 in 2014.
Apr 23 - 5:56 PM

Byron Buxton (wrist) is scheduled to play in his first extended spring training game Monday.

Buxton took on-field batting practice Wednesday at the Twins' spring training complex in Florida and reported no discomfort in his wrist, which he injured in mid-March. The Twins are going to continue to bring their top prospect along slowly. He'll likely report to Double-A New Britain when he is deemed fully healthy.
Apr 23 - 5:08 PM

Josh Johnson is scheduled to undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Thursday.

It's the second Tommy John surgery of Johnson's career, and he can now be ruled out through at least the first month of the 2015 season. He earned National League Cy Young Award votes in 2010 after posting a 2.30 ERA and 186 strikeouts in 183 2/3 innings for the Marlins, but chronic arm injuries have since derailed the talented right-hander. The Padres have a $4 million option on him for next year.
