Giants placed 1B Brandon Belt on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Belt just returned to the Giants lineup on Sunday, but has dealt with a recurrence of his symptoms and was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to headaches and nausea. Michael Morse will continue to lock down first base in his absence.

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to a right hamstring strain.

Gomez was replaced in the field by Jake Marisnick in the top of the third inning. The speedy outfielder did not outwardly look hobbled early in the game, but either the Astros saw something or Gomez himself complained of discomfort. Either way, expect him to be reevaluated on Thursday. A trip to the disabled list is one possible outcome here given the notorious uncertainty surrounding any sort of hamstring injury.

Jose Reyes (intercostal strain) will not play until Friday at the earliest.

Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. He was administered an anti-inflammatory shot on Tuesday night. In terms of silver linings, Reyes at least avoided re-breaking the rib he fractured during the opening week of the 2015 season. He initially feared that Tuesday's injury might be a case of history repeating itself.

Dan Straily pitched well in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Giants, surrendering one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Straily struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He will be able to tell his grandchildren about this one, as he out-pitched potential NL Cy Young winner Madison Bumgarner in order to secure the win. The only run to score on his watch came when Conor Gillaspie rocked a solo homer to right in the bottom of the third inning. With this marvelous outing under his belt, Straily now holds a 3.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP for the season as a whole. He will look to repeat Wednesday's result in a home start against the Cardinals next time out.

Madison Bumgarner was stupendous in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Reds, striking out nine and allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over eight innings.

Bumgarner won't lose many pitching duels, but Reds starter Dan Straily was just a touch better than him in this one. It was a fine start nonetheless. Tucker Barnhart pushed across a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning and Jay Bruce burned Mad-Bum with a solo homer in the seventh. Otherwise, the ace southpaw kept the scoreboard clean. He will carry a sharp 2.09 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 170/36 K/BB ratio (150 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.

Rangers acquired RHP Lucas Harrell and LHP Dario Alvarez from the Braves for INF Travis Demeritte.

Harrell made five starts for the Braves this season. The 31-year-old Harrell worked to a 3.38 ERA with a 21/12 K/BB ratio across 29 1/3 innings prior to the trade. He figures to take a spot in the rotation unless the Rangers are interested in using him as a potential long-arm out of the pen.

Prince Fielder (neck) will undergo fusion surgery on Friday.

As was expected. This is a killer blow for the Rangers, but it is an even more troubling setback for the 32-year-old slugger, himself. Fielder already underwent a season-ending fusion surgery on his neck in 2014. With this new surgery upcoming, he will miss the remainder of the 2016 season at the very least. 2017 and beyond could be in doubt, too. His contract runs through 2020.

Miguel Cabrera launched a go-ahead solo homer in the top of the ninth inning to push the Tigers past the Red Sox 4-3 on Wednesday afternoon in Boston.

Cabrera pounced on Brad Ziegler with two outs in the top of the ninth to snap a 3-3 tie and secure a three-game sweep for the visiting Tigers. It was Cabrera's 21st home run of the season and the 14th go-ahead homer in the ninth inning or later in his 14-year major league career. Cabrera also had two singles in Wednesday's victory and he's now slashing .301/.382/.522 over 101 games this season.

Alex Dickerson homered for the fourth consecutive game Wednesday as the Padres beat the Blue Jays by a score of 8-4 at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Dickerson went deep for a solo shot in the top of the eighth inning, becoming the first Padres rookie to homer in four straight games. The 26-year-old outfielder has been on an absolute tear over the last week and he has a clear path to regular playing time down the stretch with Melvin Upton now out of the picture in San Diego. Buy, buy, buy.

Stephen Strasburg fired seven scoreless innings in the Nationals' defeat of the Indians on Wednesday.

Strasburg thoroughly out-dueled Indians starter Carlos Carrasco, who gave up three runs in six innings. Cleveland's offense managed just three hits and two walks against Strasburg while also whiffing seven times. The ace right-hander stands 14-1 with a 2.68 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 155/36 K/BB ratio in 127 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Diamondbacks on the road next.
Jul 27 - 3:30 PM

Adam Conley threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Marlins' 11-1 rout of the Phillies.

Conley was staked to a 3-0 lead after the first inning and went into cruise control, scattering eight hits -- all singles -- across his 6 2/3 shutout frames. The left-hander can now boast a 3.21 ERA and 155 strikeouts over his last 162 2/3 innings dating back to August 2015. He was one of Rotoworld's favorite fantasy sleepers leading into the 2016 campaign. Up next is a tough road matchup against the Cubs.
Jul 27 - 3:17 PM

Nelson Cruz (foot) is out of the Mariners' starting lineup Wednesday against the Pirates.

Cruz left Tuesday's game after fouling a ball off his foot. It's just sore, and he's considered day-to-day. Seth Smith is starting in right field for the M's on Wednesday night at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.
