Andy Dirks was pulled back from his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo after suffering a strained hamstring on Tuesday.

Dirks has yet to play in a game with the Tigers this season as he has suffered numerous setbacks in his recovery from back surgery. He will remain at Toledo and continue to receive treatment until he is able to resume his rehab, which isn't expected to happen until next week.

Yasiel Puig was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Brewers with an apparent leg injury.

Puig almost immediately began to limp while running out a grounder to lead off the eighth inning. He was replaced in right field by Scott Van Slyke to open the bottom of the frame. Given that Puig was just activated off the disabled list on June 21 after being waylaid by a strained left hamstring, the Dodgers have to be crossing their fingers that this is not a re-aggravation. If this is another hamstring issue, a return trip to the DL would potentially be in play. The team should provide an official update after the game.

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.

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.

Joc Pederson (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Pederson was diagnosed with a bruised AC joint in the right shoulder after he ran into the wall while tracking down -- and catching -- a long Chris Carter fly on Tuesday. He did not sustain any broken bones in the collision, but nobody can blame manager Dave Roberts for giving him a day off or two. Trayce Thompson will man center and bat sixth in Wednesday's game.

Billy Hamilton has been placed under the concussion protocol after being hit in the head with a fly ball on Wednesday.

Hamilton was hit on the left side of the face by an Anthony Rizzo fly ball while attempting to chase it down along with outfielder Adam Duvall. After the ball hit Hamilton, it resulted in an inside-the-park homer. Manager Bryan Price spoke to his current standing in the concussion protocol. "He [has] done some concussion protocol things that haven’t shown anything. It [is] something that has to be followed up on." A trip to the 7-day concussion disabled list is in play at this point.

Adam Duvall his his National League-leading 22nd homer Wednesday against the Cubs.

It was a solo shot against Kyle Hendricks in the fourth inning. Duvall finished the afternoon 2-for-3 with a rare walk. He’s hitting .254 with a .291 on-base percentage, but the power has made him one of the biggest surprises in fantasy leagues during the first half of the season.
