Starling Marte (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Marte went through a full workout Tuesday and appears ready to rejoin the big club now, but the Pirates understandably want to play it cautiously. The outfielder will play four games for Indy before being activated early next week if all goes well.

Trevor Rosenthal will undergo Tommy John surgery next week.

Rosenthal injured his right elbow last week. After Dr. George Paletta and Dr. Neal ElAttrache examined medical scans of his arm, Tommy John was determined as the needed course of action. Dr. ElAttrache will perform the procedure. The 27-year-old right-hander is now looking at a long, long road of recovery and will not be ready to return to action until late next summer, at the earliest. Seung Hwan Oh looks like the best bet for saves down the stretch in St. Louis, though Tyler Lyons and John Brebbia could also factor in.

Max Scherzer (neck) will miss his Friday start against the Mets.

Scherzer told reporters that he is a few days behind where he would like to be on the health front, as he still feels some tightness in his neck. He played catch on Wednesday. With the ace right-hander still down for the count, Matt Grace could potentially see another start in his place on Friday versus New York.

Noah Syndergaard (lat) will not throw batting practice for another day or two.

Syndergaard had been expected to throw to hitters on Wednesday. That has now been pushed back until later in the week. Per manager Terry Collins, this slight delay is just a precautionary measure. Syndergaard has not faced live hitters since he tore a lat muscle near the end of April. Expect the Mets to play matters cautiously with their ace.

Cardinals transferred RHP Trevor Rosenthal from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Rosenthal is officially done for the season and could be facing major elbow surgery. Look for the Cardinals to announce a diagnosis soon. Dr. George Paletta and Dr. Neal ElAttrache have both reviewed his elbow scans and will collaborate on the next course of action. Rosenthal had reclaimed the closer role in St. Louis before injuring his right arm last week.

Steven Matz underwent season-ending surgery on his left elbow Wednesday.

The procedure was designed to reposition a compressed nerve in the elbow. Matz finishes the 2017 campaign with a highly disappointing 6.08 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and 48/19 K/BB ratio in 13 starts covering 66 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old southpaw is expected to be ready for Opening Day in 2018.

Carlos Santana (back) remains out of the Indians' lineup Wednesday versus the Red Sox.

Santana exited Monday's series opener after experiencing tightness in his lower back. It's a day-to-day situation. Edwin Encarnacion is at first base and Yandy Diaz will DH on Wednesday night against Boston left-hander Drew Pomeranz.

Royals manager Ned Yost said closer Kelvin Herrera (forearm) could be available on Wednesday.

Herrera was pulled from a save opportunity Tuesday night against the Rockies after experiencing tightness in his right forearm, but Yost told KCSP (610 AM) on Wednesday morning that it's nothing serious -- clarifying that the discomfort was actually closer to Herrera's wrist. Scott Alexander wound up finishing Tuesday's victory for his first career save.

Indians placed 2B Jason Kipnis on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

This hamstring issue has been lingering for months and Kipnis reaggravated it Tuesday night against the Red Sox. He'll probably be sidelined until sometime in mid-September. Jose Ramirez figures to handle the majority of starts at second base, with Giovanny Urshela taking over at third. Erik Gonzalez has been called up from Triple-A Columbus to help out on the infield.

Red Sox placed OF Jackie Bradley on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb.

Bradley's left thumb got bent back awkwardly as he slid into home plate on Tuesday night in Cleveland. X-rays came back negative, but an MRI taken Wednesday morning in Boston revealed the sprain. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Andrew Benintendi is likely to take over in center field, with Chris Young and Brock Holt sharing time in left.

Kris Bryant (hand) is absent from the Cubs' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Reds.

Bryant took a pitch off his left hand in the ninth inning Tuesday, but X-rays turned up negative and it sounds like he could return for Thursday's series finale in Cincinnati. Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting sixth Wednesday versus Reds right-hander Asher Wojciechowski.
Aug 23 - 2:03 PM

Mariners activated RHP David Phelps from the 10-day disabled list.

Phelps made it through a 20-pitch simulated inning Monday without issue and will be available out of the Mariners' bullpen on Wednesday night in Atlanta. The setup man missed a little over two weeks with a right elbow impingement.
