Manny Machado (knee) has been cleared to perform all drills other than running the bases and sliding.

Machado won't be cleared to run the bases until mid-March. If everything goes according to plan, the young infielder should still have time to get ready for Opening Day. However, there's obviously a long way to go before that comes to fruition. Machado is recovering from surgery to repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee.

Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI to lead the Tigers to a 9-4 victory over the Twins on Wednesday.

His solo blast in the first inning opened the scoring. He then contributed an RBI double in the third inning before adding another double and a single. The future Hall of Famer is batting .313/.386/.552 with 28 home runs, 80 RBI, and 71 runs scored in 124 games.

Manny Machado went 4-for-6 with a homer and four total RBI to lead the Orioles over the Nationals 10-8 on Wednesday.

Machado's two-run bomb in the first inning set the tone for the high-scoring night. He then added run-scoring singles in the second and eighth innings. The four hits raised his batting average to .306 in 494 at-bats. The home run was his 29th. Machado has scored 87 runs and driven in 78. He has yet to steal a base after swiping 20 last year, but that's kind of a side concern at this point for his fantasy owners.

Daniel Murphy went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and five RBI against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Murphy's season gets more impressive nearly every day. The grand slam came in the ninth inning but the Nationals were behind by seven runs at the time and couldn't make up that much ground. The second baseman's .347/.391/.611 slash line with a 1.002 OPS is off the charts. He chips in 24 home runs and 95 RBI to boot. Unless he falls flat on his face the rest of the season this will go down as by far the best year of his career.

Matt Shoemaker didn't have his strikeout stuff working but managed to cobble together six shutout innings in the Angels' 8-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

He fanned three while allowing just three hits and one walk. It has been an up-and-down year for Shoemaker but today was all up. His 8-13 record is not pretty but his 3.98 ERA is impressive considering how terribly he began the season. He has punched out 134 batters while walking just 30 in his 25 starts.

Andrew Benintendi will undergo an MRI on his left leg Thursday.

Benintendi suffered a left knee sprain and some kind of ankle injury during the seventh inning of Wednesday's game against the Rays while trying to evade a tag at second base. The 22-year-old outfielder's MRI should shed more light on just how badly he was hurt, but he put little weight on his leg when exiting the clubhouse after the game. This could be a very bad diagnosis.

Marlins acquired OF Jeff Francoeur from the Braves as part of a three-team trade.

Atlanta received minor league catcher Matthew Foley from the Marlins and infield prospect Dylan Moore from the Rangers, sending international bonus pool slot No. 93 to Texas in return. Miami gave up international bonus slots No. 37 and No. 97 to the Rangers. Got all that? Francoeur was batting just .249/.290/.381 with seven home runs and 33 RBI through 276 plate appearances this season for the Braves, but the Marlins were desperate for outfield help with Giancarlo Stanton (groin) ruled out for the remainder of the year. Francoeur figures to see semi-regular starts against left-handed pitching in Miami.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said that Jose Fernandez suffered a cramp in Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Disaster seemingly averted for the Marlins. Fernandez grabbed his calf and limped off the field after striking out the final batter of the seventh inning, but Mattingly said after the game that it was only a cramp. The ace fireballer should be good to go next time he's scheduled to toe the rubber barring an unforeseen setback. Fernandez worked seven scoreless innings Wednesday night versus Kansas City, striking out nine.

Jay Bruce was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals due to a right calf cramp.

Bruce cramped up on a second-inning double and was subsequently pinch-run for by Alejandro De Aza. Cramps are rarely a sign of serious injury and the Mets' midseason acquisition should be back in the lineup without issue later this week.

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Mariners.

Sanchez continues to simply destroy things, this time cracking a solo home run off Hisashi Iwakuma in the first inning. In just 72 at-bats, he has already launched nine long-balls. The 23-year-old backstop is slashing a stupendous .389/.450/.847 in that space. He was batting third on Wednesday and even if he cools off -- which will happen eventually, allegedly -- he should remain a fantasy difference-maker down the stretch.

Nelson Cruz left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to back spasms.

Cruz was pinch-hit for by Mike Zunino in the eighth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. This was just a precautionary move, though, and the slugger could return to the lineup on Thursday at the White Sox.
Aug 24 - 7:42 PM

Masahiro Tanaka delivered seven shutout innings Wednesday in the Yankees' 5-0 blanking of the Mariners.

Tanaka scattered seven hits -- six singles, one double -- over his seven scoreless frames while striking out five and issuing just one walk. The third-inning walk to Seth Smith was Tanaka's first free pass in 34 innings this month. Tanaka, 27, now boasts an 11-4 record, 3.11 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 142/28 K/BB ratio over 168 innings (26 starts) this season. He gets the Royals on the road next.
