Gavin Floyd (elbow) will throw live batting practice on Wednesday.

It will be the first time he's thrown to hitters since last May's Tommy John and flexor muscle surgery. Floyd has already thrown plenty from the mound and incorporated all his pitches, and this is the next step in the rehab process. The Braves are hoping he'll be ready to join their rotation in mid-to-late May.

Michael Wacha allowed six runs on seven hits over four-plus innings in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Wacha was working with a 3-0 advantage before he even threw his first pitch, but he was unable to hold the early lead afforded to him by the offense. Chase Utley burned him for a solo home run in the second inning, with three more runs scoring in the fourth inning. Two of those came home off the bat of opposing number Kenta Maeda, who laced a single down the third base line on a hanging curve. The final two runs on his line scored via the bullpen after he allowed runners on before being pulled with nobody out in the fifth. Wacha will carry a still-sturdy 3.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a home start against (once again) the Dodger when he next takes to the mound.

Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Tigers.

Correa got the mini comeback started when he took Tigers starter Justin Verlander deep for a two-run bomb in the fourth inning. The homer was his seventh in 42 games this year. The 22-year-old isn't running, having yet to steal a base this year, but he's hitting .288/.370/.481 with 26 RBI and 29 runs scored in the middle of a good Astros lineup. Even if the steals don't come, Correa is on his way to another fine season at the dish.

Xander Bogaerts got his long-awaited first home run of the 2017 season Thursday, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in a 6-2 win over the Rangers.

Bogaerts got hold of a Nick Martinez offering in the third inning, lining it just over the top of the Green Monster to get him on the board. It's hard to believe he hadn't lucked into one before this, especially after he hit a career-best 21 dingers in 2016. It's a big one, but that's really the only knock against the 24-year-old this year, as he's been a terrific offensive performer by basically any other metric. Bogaerts is hitting .335/.398/.470 with eight steals, 17 RBI and 29 runs scored overall.

Drew Pomeranz had it all working Thursday, striking out 11 while allowing two runs over six innings in a win over the Rangers.

It was a good sign for Sox fans when the southpaw struck out the first two batters he faced and ended up punching out five of the first seven hitters he saw. He allowed just four hits, including a solo homer to Elvis Andrus, and walked one over his six innings. Efficiency has been his enemy this season -- only three times in nine starts has he gotten through six innings, and he's yet to record an out in the seventh -- but the Sox will take Thursday's performance every time. Pomeranz will try to carry on that good momentum, and continue to work on his 4.70 ERA, against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Robbie Ray struck out nine Brewers over seven scoreless innings as the Diamondbacks shut out the Crew 4-0 on Thursday.

Not to be overshadowed by teammate Zack Greinke, Ray reminded everyone Thursday that he's a talented member of the rotation, too. The Brewers were able to muster just two singles off Ray over his seven innings, and the southpaw didn't issue a free pass all night. It was the second consecutive start in which he's left without giving up a run, lowering his ERA to 3.45 with a 1.20 WHIP through 10 starts overall. Ray will try to keep the shutout streak going Tuesday against the Pirates.

Ryan Braun (calf) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Braun only lasted four days before landing back on the DL. He's been struggling with calf issues on and off for the past month and appeared to aggravate his injury Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Left field duties will be shared between Hernan Perez, Nick Franklin and Eric Thames during his absence. More will be known on Braun's recovery timetable after he undergoes an MRI. The former MVP has been productive when healthy this year, hitting .262 with seven homers, 19 RBI and four steals over 30 appearances.

Dinelson Lamet struck out eight while allowing one run over five innings in his MLB debut Thursday, a 4-3 win over the Mets.

Lamet yielded just three hits, including a Lucas Duda solo homer, while also walking two in the outing. It was a heck of a debut for the 24-year-old, who earned the shot by posting a 3.23 ERA with 50 strikeouts in 39 innings at Triple-A El Paso to start the year. It certainly won't be his last start with the big club after that kind of debut. His next test will be a serious one, coming next Tuesday against the defending champion Cubs.

Dustin Pedroia left Thursday's game against the Rangers with left knee soreness.

Josh Rutledge replaced Pedroia at second base to begin the sixth inning. The Red Sox said his removal was "precautionary" while beat writer Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe noted that Pedroia pleaded to stay in the game. He went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. This is the same knee that Pedroia injured earlier this year when Manny Machado slid into him at second base.

Ryan Braun left Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks with left calf tightness.

It's the same injury that put Braun on the disabled list earlier this month. Jesus Aguilar pinch-hit for Braun in the fourth inning and stayed in to play first base while Eric Thames shifted to left field. Braun fouled out in his only at-bat before exiting.

According to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Brad Hand is "drawing keen interest" around the league.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports filed a similar report last week. Per Lin, the rebuilding Padres are "likely to consider just about anything" in trade talks, just as they did a year ago when they dealt Matt Kemp, Drew Pomeranz, Fernando Rodney and James Shields. Hand would make a ton of sense for the Nationals, who are in desperate need of bullpen help. We're guessing Hand will be wearing a new uniform by July 31.
May 25 - 9:23 PM

Dodgers activated RHP Kenta Maeda from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll be on the mound Thursday against the Cardinals. Maeda landed on the DL with hamstring tightness earlier this month but only missed a couple turns in the rotation. Though his ERA sits at a relatively uninspiring 5.03, Maeda had been on a roll before his injury with two wins and a 2.21 ERA over his previous three starts. Joc Pederson (concussion) was placed on the disabled list to make room for him.
