Chase Headley (calf) will play in a minor league game Wednesday before making his Cactus League debut Thursday.

Headley has been cleared for game action after running at 100 percent on Monday with no issues. It's not clear whether he'll play third base right away or be eased into action in the designated hitter spot. Headley remains hopeful of being ready in time for Opening Day.

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.

Gerrit Cole allowed only one run in a masterful 10-1 complete game victory over the Mariners on Wednesday.

He struck out six batters without walking any and held the Mariners to only three base hits in the entire game. He was able to go the distance on only 94 pitches, 70 of which were strikes. The stellar victory moves him to 6-6 with a 2.78 ERA on the season. He has fanned 73 batters against 23 walks in 87 1/3 innings. Perhaps most impressively he has surrendered only three home runs on the season.

Andrew McCutchen crushed a three-run bomb and finished the night 3-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored.

The home run gave him 15 for the season to go with his .246 batting average, 56 runs, 42 RBI and three steals. Those stats are far, far below what his owners expected this season. Games like today's have been few and far between for the perennial fantasy stud this season.

Pirates prospect Steven Brault will start against the Brewers on Friday.

Brault has made one start with the big league team this season, yielding two runs (one earned) against the Cardinals on July 5. In a larger sample, the 24-year-old southpaw holds a 2.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 66/22 K/BB ratio in 11 appearances -- 10 starts -- covering 50 1/3 innings with Triple-A Indianapolis. He draws a nice matchup against the Brewers and makes for a playable DFS option this weekend.

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to a right hamstring strain.

Gomez was replaced in the field by Jake Marisnick in the top of the third inning. The speedy outfielder did not outwardly look hobbled early in the game, but either the Astros saw something or Gomez himself complained of discomfort. Either way, expect him to be reevaluated on Thursday. A trip to the disabled list is one possible outcome here given the notorious uncertainty surrounding any sort of hamstring injury.

Jose Reyes (intercostal strain) will not play until Friday at the earliest.

Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. He was administered an anti-inflammatory shot on Tuesday night. In terms of silver linings, Reyes at least avoided re-breaking the rib he fractured during the opening week of the 2015 season. He initially feared that Tuesday's injury might be a case of history repeating itself.

Dan Straily pitched well in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants, surrendering one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Straily struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He will be able to tell his grandchildren about this one, as he out-pitched potential NL Cy Young winner Madison Bumgarner in order to secure the win. The only run to score on his watch came when Conor Gillaspie rocked a solo homer to right in the bottom of the third inning. With this marvelous outing under his belt, Straily now holds a 3.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP for the season as a whole. He will look to repeat Wednesday's result in a home start against the Cardinals next time out.

Madison Bumgarner was stupendous in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Reds, striking out nine and allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over eight innings.

Bumgarner won't lose many pitching duels, but Reds starter Dan Straily was just a touch better than him in this one. It was a fine start nonetheless. Tucker Barnhart pushed across a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning and Jay Bruce burned Mad-Bum with a solo homer in the seventh. Otherwise, the ace southpaw kept the scoreboard clean. He will carry a sharp 2.09 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 170/36 K/BB ratio (150 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.

Rangers acquired RHP Lucas Harrell and LHP Dario Alvarez from the Braves for INF Travis Demeritte.

Harrell made five starts for the Braves this season. The 31-year-old Harrell worked to a 3.38 ERA with a 21/12 K/BB ratio across 29 1/3 innings prior to the trade. He figures to take a spot in the rotation unless the Rangers are interested in using him as a potential long-arm out of the pen.

Prince Fielder (neck) will undergo fusion surgery on Friday.

As was expected. This is a killer blow for the Rangers, but it is an even more troubling setback for the 32-year-old slugger, himself. Fielder already underwent a season-ending fusion surgery on his neck in 2014. With this new surgery upcoming, he will miss the remainder of the 2016 season at the very least. 2017 and beyond could be in doubt, too. His contract runs through 2020.

Miguel Cabrera launched a go-ahead solo homer in the top of the ninth inning to push the Tigers past the Red Sox 4-3 on Wednesday afternoon in Boston.

Cabrera pounced on Brad Ziegler with two outs in the top of the ninth to snap a 3-3 tie and secure a three-game sweep for the visiting Tigers. It was Cabrera's 21st home run of the season and the 14th go-ahead homer in the ninth inning or later in his 14-year major league career. Cabrera also had two singles in Wednesday's victory and he's now slashing .301/.382/.522 over 101 games this season.
