CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Miguel Cabrera's extension includes two vesting options worth $30 million apiece.

That means the extension could ultimately be worth $308 million over 10 years. When combined with his current deal that expires after next season, Cabrera could wind up earning a max of $352 million over the next 12 years. It's hard to blame Detroit for wanting to make Cabrera a Tigers for life, but they might be going a little overboard here.

Hunter Pence was 0-for-3 with a walk until clearing the bases with a double to break a scoreless tie in the top of the ninth in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Pence has killed his former team in this series, entering the night with six hits in 13 at-bats. He now has 6 RBI in the series and can help the Giants wrap up a four-game sweep on Thursday afternoon. Pence has been among the most productive hitters in baseball, slashing .304/.361/.479 with 13 home runs, 41 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is still "feeling it" in his hand.

Mattingly said Ramirez hasn't swung a bat since being hit in the hand by a pitch by Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal on Sunday. He has picked a bat up and "moved it around," according to Mattingly, for whatever that's worth. He's been called day-to-day since sustaining the injury, but Ramirez hasn't been in the lineup since Sunday and the Dodgers will have to think about a DL trip if he doesn't show great improvement soon.

Ervin Santana posted his second double-digit strikeout game of the season, allowing one run in 7 1/3 innings en route to a win against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Santana struck out 10, including the one out he recorded in the eighth. His last double-digit strikeout game occurred in his second start on April 14. The Marlins had runners on base but couldn't convert, as Santana allowed six hits (all singles) and three walks. The right-hander improves his ERA to 3.87 and has a 1.27 WHIP and 107/37 K/BB ratio to go along with it. Santana will wrap up a homestand on Monday against the Padres next.

Francisco Liriano pitched well against the Dodgers on Wednesday, holding them to one run over seven innings en route to his second win of the season.

Liriano didn't have the strikeout stuff working the way he did in his last start against the Rockies, but he limited the Dodgers to four hits and a pair of walks while fanning four. The lefty finished the seventh inning for the first time since April 21. Now with a 4.18 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 93/47 K/BB ratio, Liriano will look to keep it going against the Giants on the road next week.

Jorge De La Rosa struck out 11 batters while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 7 1/3 innings in the Rockies' 6-4 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

De La Rosa allowed eight hits without walking a batter, and the left-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his four starts this month. The strong outing raised his record to 11-6 with a 4.19 ERA through 21 starts. He'll try to continue his strong stretch of starts when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley next week.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Wednesday that first base will be a "day-to-day thing" going forward.

It's a nice way of saying Ryan Howard has lost his grip on the starting first base job. Howard and Darin Ruf will platoon based on matchups and who is swinging the hotter bat, and it appears Sandberg is resolute in his willingness to see what Ruf can do over the next two months. CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reports the Phillies have considered the possibility of releasing Howard if he can't be moved in a trade. The Phillies owe Howard, who is hitting .224/.305/.377, $60 million guaranteed over the next three years.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers pounded the Diamondbacks 11-5 on Wednesday afternoon at Arizona's Chase Field.

Cabrera singled and scored in the top of the fourth inning and then slugged a three-run shot to give the Tigers some insurance in the top of the eighth. The Detroit slugger has gone 2-for-4 in three straight games and is now batting .315/.372/.539 with 15 home runs and 80 RBI in 97 total games this season.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said the MRI results for Ryan Zimmerman showed a "pretty substantial" hamstring strain.

Well, that's not good. Zimmerman was placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game, and it doesn't appear he's anywhere close to returning to the club at this point. Anthony Rendon will get the majority of the starts at third base with Zimmerman sidelined.

Bartolo Colon carried a perfect game into the seventh inning Wednesday in the Mets' 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Robinson Cano ended the bid for perfection with a two-out single to shallow left field in the bottom of the seventh. Colon then gave up two runs in the eighth but wound up with his ninth victory of 2014. The 41-year-old right-hander has a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100/19 K/BB ratio in 134 innings this season. The Mets are known to be shopping him with the July 31 trade deadline drawing near.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday "it's too early to call" whether the rest program prescribed for Masahiro Tanaka's right elbow will work.

The other option is obviously surgery, so the Yankees are going to give the program all the time they can before making a decision. Cashman did add that Tanaka is feeling better since he was shut down on July 10 due to a partial tear in his ulnar collateral ligament. He's still weeks away from any potential return to the mound.

Manny Machado (back) is not in the Orioles' lineup on Wednesday.

Machado received an anti-inflammatory injection for his back after Tuesday's game, so it's no surprise that he's getting the day off Wednesday. He's still considered day-to-day for now, but if misses too many more games it might make sense for the Orioles to shut him down for a few weeks. Ryan Flaherty started at third base in his absence.
