Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) is scheduled to throw a 45-pitch simulated game Saturday in Miami.

Iwakuma, who is working his way back from a strained middle finger, threw a 45-pitch bullpen session on Saturday afternoon and is scheduled to throw another one Tuesday. If all goes well in the simulated game Saturday, the next step could be a minor league rehab assignment. It looks like a return in the early part of May is the most realistic scenario.

Luis Severino struck out eight batters and allowed just one run in 6 2/3 innings while earning a 10-2 win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

He made it through the first five innings unscathed before surrendering a solo homer to Ian Kinsler in the sixth for the only damage he would allow in the gem outing. The 23-year-old right-hander has been one of the best pitchers in the majors this year following a dismal 2016 season in which he registered a 3-8 record and 5.83 ERA and was demoted to the bullpen. He's turned things around in a major way in 2017 and now owns an 11-5 record with a 3.10 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 25 starts. He has a marvelous 183 strikeouts and 42 walks in 156 2/3 innings.

Greg Holland took another blown save and loss tonight after giving up three runs in the ninth Wednesday against the Royals.

This has to be it for Holland for a little while; he looked flat-out awful in giving up a single, a walk and Eric Hosmer's walkoff homer on an 86-mph slider that didn't move. Even the outs were loud. He's given up 12 runs in his last six appearances, taking his ERA from 1.56 to 3.77. The Rockies will have to go to look elsewhere for saves -- probably to Pat Neshek and Jake McGee -- until Holland gets his stuff back.

Mike Montgomery held the Reds scoreless on four hits in six innings during a 9-3 win on Wednesday.

He allowed just four singles and one walk while striking out four in the premium outing. Montgomery was making his first start since mid-July as he fills in for the injured Jon Lester (shoulder) in the Cubs' rotation. For the season he improves to 4-6 with a 3.43 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.

Robinson Cano (hamstring) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday.

Cano left Wednesday's game against the Braves due to left hamstring tightness which he experienced when hoofing it out of the box on a double in the third inning. Consider him day-to-day for the time being, with Thursday's MRI likely to shed more specific light on the severity of the injury. Cano said after Wednesday's game that he is not sure if he will be able to play in the Mariners' upcoming weekend series against the Yankees.

Mark Leiter tossed seven scoreless innings and allowed just one base hit in an 8-0 win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

The rookie made it look easy against a strong lineup. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Miguel Rojas poked a double to left field to break it up. Leiter allowed just the one knock and two walks while striking out five in the gem effort. He improves to 2-3 with a nice 3.86 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 58 1/3 innings.

Rhys Hoskins went 2-for-3 with a home run and five RBI to lead his team over the Marlins on Wednesday.

He delivered the decisive blow of the ballgame by blasting a three-run bomb off starter Justin Nicolino in the third inning. He drove in two more runs with a double in the sixth. Hoskins also walked in the contest and is batting an impressive .271/.407/.729 with seven longballs and 16 RBI in his first 14 major league games. The powerful outfielder cracked 29 homers in 115 games at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this year before getting called up.

Trevor Williams fired eight shutout innings against the Dodgers but had to settle for a no-decision as his team won 1-0 in extra innings on Wednesday.

Lost in the excitement surrounding Rich Hill's bid for a perfect game was that Williams was matching him inning-for-inning in run prevention. The rookie right-hander surrendered seven base hits and issued four walks against five strikeouts in his best start of the campaign. It was a great effort against the best team in baseball. It was especially nice to see considering he gave up eight runs in three innings against the Cardinals in his previous start. He now has a 4.40 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP in 122 2/3 innings for the season.

Josh Harrison put an end to Rich Hill's no-hit bid by belting a walk-off solo home run in the 10th inning against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

It was the Pirates' only hit of the game and he really made it count. He lifted Hill's 99th pitch of the game over the wall in left field to end perhaps the most amazing contest of the season. Harrison has a .281 batting average with 16 home runs and 47 RBI in 456 at-bats.

Rich Hill took a perfect game into the ninth inning and a no-hitter into the 10th before losing the game to the Pirates on a solo home run by Josh Harrison on Wednesday.

He lost the perfecto on a Logan Forsythe fielding error on a grounder hit by Jordy Mercer leading off the ninth inning. The scoreless game went into extra innings and Hill came back out to pitch the bottom of the tenth. Josh Harrison led off the frame with a walk-off solo homer to spoil the no-hitter and saddle Hill with a loss. The 37-year-old left-hander punched out 10 batters on 99 pitches in the marvelous ballgame. He falls to 9-5 with a 3.32 ERA in 19 starts.
Aug 23 - 10:14 PM

Jason Castro left Wednesday's game against the White Sox with concussion-like symptoms.

Castro took two foul-tips to the mask in the contest. He will be reevaluated on Thursday. The Twins should have a more clear idea as to how quickly the backstop will be able to return to action once he is a bit further removed from the initial injury.
Aug 23 - 9:50 PM

Guillermo Heredia left Wednesday's game against the Braves after being hit in the arm by a pitch.

Heredia was plunked in the seventh inning and appeared to be in significant pain. He was replaced on the basepaths by a pinch-running Ben Gamel following the hit-by-pitch.
