J.P. Arencibia had a ridiculous night at the plate Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI against the Yankees.

Arencibia connected on a solo shot in the fifth inning before blasting a grand slam in the seventh. His 12 total bases were a career high for a single game, and it was the eighth two-homer game of his career. The power has always been present, but his .183/.223/.404 line is what keeps him from being a fantasy option.

Brian McCann hit two home runs against the Rangers on Wednesday, including a ninth-inning three-run bomb to tie a game the Yankees later won 9-7.

Two batters later Didi Gregorius hit a walkoff homer. The home runs gave McCann 12 for the season. He finished the night 2-for-3 with two walks, three runs and 4 RBI. The great ngame boosted McCann's batting line to .229/.333/.439 with 32 runs and 34 RBI in 63 games. He no longer hits for a high batting average like he did for several years in Atlanta, but he hits for enough power to be one of the better fantasy catchers to own.

Updating a previous item, Steve Clevenger was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Pirates after fracturing the third metacarpal in his right hand.

The third metacarpal is part of the middle finger. Clevenger fractured the bone after taking a foul tip off the bat of Gregory Polanco in the third inning and was immediately replaced by Chris Iannetta behind the plate. Expect the Mariners to call up a catcher to aid their depth. Mike Zunino and Steve Baron are both potential options.

Updating a previous item, Yasiel Puig was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Brewers due to a minor knee contusion.

Puig was pulled from the contest after limping out a grounder in the eighth inning. While he previously dealt with a hamstring injury, it appears he has dodged a re-aggravation of that ailment. Following the loss, manager Dave Roberts said that he expects Puig to be in the lineup on Thursday.

Max Scherzer tossed 7 1/3 shutout innings at the Mets on Wednesday, striking out ten batters, walking one and allowing only two base his.

Scherzer was dominant against the Mets' weak offense, lowering his ERA to 3.30 and his WHIP to 0.96 on the season. He leads the majors with 148 strikeouts in 114 2/3 innings. Now 9-5, Scherzer will next face the Brewers and Mets in a two start week beginning on Independence Day at 11:05 AM. Set your lineups early.

Danny Salazar shut out the Braves for seven innings on five hits, fanning eight without a walk as the Indians won 3-0 on Wednesday.

Salazar has been fantastic all year and tonight was no exception. The win raised his record to 10-3 with a spectacular 2.22 ERA. He lowered his worrisome walk rate to 4.15 BB/9, although much of that is offset by his nice 10.32 K/9. The Indians have won 12 in a row. Salazar will likely get two starts next week barring a rain-out.

Noah Syndergaard acknowledged that he is pitching with a bone spur in his right elbow.

Syndergaard had been vehement in his denial of a bone spur, but after multiple reports surfaced outing the injury, he admitted that it was a reality. But still, defiance, as the young ace referred to the bone spur as "pretty insignificant." "[I can] pitch through it with no pain. I'll be ready to go in five day," Syndergaard said on Wednesday. In his last start, the Nationals whacked him for a season-high five runs in three innings. It is admirable that Syndergaard wants to pitch through the injury -- and maybe he will make his next start, as he hopes -- but the Mets would be playing a dangerous game to approach Syndergaard's arm issue with anything other than caution.

Jose Altuve missed the cycle by a home run in Wednesday's 10-4 win over the Angels.

Altuve finished the game 4-for-5 with four runs scored, an RBI triple and a stolen base. Not a bad day at the office. The diminutive second baseman is posting a legitimate MVP-caliber season -- the Astros' recent turnaround will only aid that -- on the strength of a monumental .357/.432/.572 triple-slash with 23 doubles, 13 homers, 46 RBI, 21 steals and 60 runs scored across 311 at-bats. He is on pace to set career-highs in a number of offensive categories.

Giants placed 2B Joe Panik on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

While Panik passed his concussion tests three days running after being hit in the head with a ball in mid-June, the symptoms came back to the point where the Giants were forced to sit him on Tuesday. Until he is ready to return, expect Ramiro Pena to receive increased at-bats.

Aaron Sanchez was fantastic in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Rockies, firing eight innings of one-run ball.

Sanchez scattered six hits while walking two over his eight innings of work. While he didn't have the strikeout working -- he fanned just three on the afternoon -- he proved lethally efficient and threw just 106 pitches during his extended time on the mound. The 23-year-old right-hander will carry a 3.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 96/34 K/BB ratio (105 1/3 innings) into a home date with the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Curtis Granderson (calf) has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson was initially penciled-in to bat leadoff against Max Scherzer on Wednesday, but after testing his strained right calf in pregame exercises, it looks like he will be riding the pine for the day. Alejandro De Aza will take over leadoff duties in his place. This is thought to be a minor injury, but the veteran outfielder might receive another game or two off just to be on the safe side.
Jun 29 - 6:21 PM

Melky Cabrera (wrist) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Cabrera is dealing with a sprained right wrist, one that he rolled over while fielding a single two weekends ago. While he has played in the interim, he is now expected to miss at least three or four days in order to allow the injury to heal fully. In his place on Wednesday, Avisail Garcia is manning left field and will hit eighth.
