Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Pearce continues to swing a hot bat. The two-hit night is his ninth multi-hit game in 14 June games, and his sixth in his last seven starts. Pearce also notched his seventh home run, going deep against Jose Quintana in the sixth inning. The 31-year-old first baseman is now slashing .344/.406/.592 with 20 RBI in 138 plate appearances.

Andrew Benintendi (knee) is in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Benintendi left Tuesday night's blowout win over St. Louis after taking a Mike Leake pitch off his left knee in the bottom of the fifth inning. There was never any serious concern. Benintendi is 18-for-43 (.419) with five home runs, 13 RBI, five stolen bases, and 12 runs scored in 11 games this month. He'll start in left field and bat third Wednesday versus Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports hears the Marlins are "willing to engage with other teams" on a possible Giancarlo Stanton trade.

Stanton cleared revocable waivers on Sunday, so he's eligible to be dealt to any club -- assuming he would not exercise his full no-trade protection. Miami's asking price is probably sky high even with Stanton owed more than $285 million on a mega-contract that runs through 2027. The 27-year-old slugger is batting .285/.376/.646 with a league-leading 44 home runs and 94 RBI in 116 games this season.

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said he's hopeful Odubel Herrera (hamstring) will be able to return to the starting lineup Thursday in San Francisco.

Herrera is sitting out again Wednesday afternoon against the Padres after suffering a mild left hamstring strain on Monday night, though Mackanin suggested that he could be used as a pinch-hitter in the series finale at Petco Park. Nick Williams is starting in center field, Rhys Hoskins is starting in left field, and Cameron Perkins is in right.

Kyle Seager (illness) is out of the Mariners' lineup again on Wednesday.

Seager has a stomach virus and will miss his second consecutive game. Danny Valencia is starting at third base and batting sixth Wednesday afternoon against the Orioles and right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez.

Jered Weaver has announced his retirement from baseball.

Weaver opened the season 0-5 with a 7.44 ERA in nine starts before landing on the disabled list in May due to a hip injury that continues to plague him. "While I've been working hard to get back on the mound, my body just will not allow me to compete like I want to," Weaver said in a statement Wednesday. "Many thanks to the Padres organization for the opportunity to play in the amazing city of San Diego. You have been very professional and respectful during this process and I really appreciate that." The 34-year-old right-hander spent 12 seasons in the major leagues between the Angels and Padres, compiling a 150-98 record and 3.63 career ERA. He had three straight top-five finishes in the American League Cy Young Award balloting back in 2010-2012.

Jayson Werth (foot) is reporting to the Nationals' spring training facility in West Palm Beach, Florida.

He'll work out there for the next couple of days before possibly embarking on a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend. Werth has been on the disabled list since early June with a bone bruise in his left foot. The veteran outfielder should be ready for activation around the final week of August or first week of September, assuming he can avoid setbacks.

Orlando Arcia (back) remains out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

Arcia was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms and he will take another day of rest. Eric Sogard is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff against Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.

Andrew Heaney (elbow) is scheduled to make his season debut Friday in Baltimore.

Heaney got the go-ahead after throwing a bullpen session in front of Angels coaches and trainers on Tuesday at Nationals Park. The 26-year-old left-hander is nearly 14 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and posted a promising 2.60 ERA and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings on his six-start minor league rehab assignment. He's looking like a potential fantasy sleeper for the stretch run.
Aug 16 - 10:55 AM

Nationals placed OF Brian Goodwin on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 14, with a left groin strain.

The injury comes with bad timing for Goodwin, who had been drawing regular starts in the Nationals' outfield. He owns a cool .811 OPS with 13 home runs and six stolen bases in 74 games this season. Alejandro De Aza has been called up from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

James Paxton (pectoral) hopes to begin playing catch this weekend.

Paxton remains in shutdown mode with a strained left pectoral muscle, but he told reporters Tuesday that he's feeling much better and he has a check-up exam scheduled for this Friday in Seattle. We should have a clearer picture about his timetable by Saturday. Paxton hit the disabled list on August 11 with a stellar 12-3 record, 2.78 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 138/33 K/BB ratio in 119 2/3 innings this season. The 28-year-old southpaw also missed time in May with a forearm strain.
Aug 16 - 9:01 AM

Joey Gallo hit his ninth homer of the month and 34th of the year Tuesday against the Tigers.

He also walked and scored a second run. That run is notable; he'd been driven in just once in his previous 17 games. The Rangers have slowly moved him up in the lineup, but they still won't go any higher than fifth with him.
