Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that Felix Hernandez (hip) is "fine" and will be ready to make his next scheduled start on Friday in Boston.

Hernandez made an early exit from his last outing after being hit in the hip by a comebacker. There wasn't much doubt that he'd be ready to go for his next start, but it's good to have confirmation. "He's fine," McClendon said. "He may push [his bullpen] back. I'm not sure. Sometimes he pushes it back, sometimes he doesn't even throw. But he's fine."

Athletics acquired RHP Wilmer Font from the Dodgers in return for LHP Logan Salow.

Font, 27, was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Monday after allowing 13 runs in his 10 1/3 innings with Los Angeles. The right-hander has shown swing-and-miss stuff, but he's also shown he doesn't command that stuff very well. Expect him to pitch in low-leverage situations for the Athletics, with an outside chance of making some starts.

Rangers placed 3B Adrian Beltre on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Beltre strained the hamstring while hustling out a single in the eighth inning against the Athletics on Tuesday. The Rangers called up outfielder Ryan Rua to take his place. Beltre has been a quick healer in his career, and assuming there are no setbacks in his rehab he should be back with Texas in a couple of weeks.

Adrian Beltre is not in the lineup on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Beltre was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain on Tuesday after running down the line on an RBI single against the Athletics. He hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, but a trip to the 10-day DL could be in the cards for the 39-year-old. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will play third in Beltre's place.

Brewers placed 1B Eric Thames on the 10-day disabled list with a torn UCL in his left thumb.

Awful news, as Thames was having another tremendous April. UCL thumb tears can sometimes cost players as much as two months and sap power production even when the player returns. Jesus Aguilar will get a boost in starts at first base in Thames' absence, and Ryan Braun could also see more action at the position. Thames had a .976 OPS and seven home runs through 22 games this season for Milwaukee.

Orioles placed INF Tim Beckham on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

Beckham initially injured his groin during spring training and then reaggravated it in Monday's game against the Indians. He could be sidelined for three or even four weeks. Danny Valencia is at third base and batting sixth on Wednesday night against the Rays.

Kris Bryant (head) remains out of the Cubs' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Indians.

Bryant took a pitch off his helmet on Sunday and hasn't played since, though he did pass his initial round of concussion tests. Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting fifth for the Cubs on Wednesday versus Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer.
Apr 25 - 3:26 PM

Jose Abreu left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Abreu was 0-for-2 before getting replaced at first base by Matt Davidson to begin the top of the fourth inning. The veteran slugger might have to sit out Thursday's series opener at Kansas City.

Rays purchased the contract of LHP Jonny Venters from Triple-A Durham.

Venters is back in the majors for the first time since 2012. The 33-year-old southpaw has undergone three different Tommy John surgeries, but he was one of the best relievers in baseball before his elbow gave out. Venters, who owns a 2.23 ERA and 10.1 K/9 in 229 2/3 career major league innings, will likely work in a lefty setup role for Tampa Bay.

Mac Williamson was scratched from the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday due to neck stiffness.

Williamson tripped and crashed hard into the left field wall while chasing down a foul ball on Tuesday night, though he did stay in the game initially. Gregor Blanco will start in left field and Austin Jackson will play center field Wednesday versus the Nationals. Williamson has three home runs and six RBI in six games since joining the Giants on April 20 as the corresponding move for Hunter Pence (thumb) landing on the disabled list. He should stick around when Pence returns.
Apr 25 - 3:07 PM

Braves purchased the contract of OF Ronald Acuna from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The day is finally here. Acuna has met up with the Braves in Cincinnati and will start in left field and bat sixth in his MLB debut Wednesday night against the Reds. The 20-year-old top outfield prospect got off to a sluggish start this season at Triple-A Gwinnett, but he then went 11-for-33 (.333) with a homer, a double, four walks, and three stolen bases over his final eight games in the International League. Acuna slashed .325/.374/.522 with 21 home runs, 82 RBI, 44 stolen bases, and 88 runs scored in 139 games last season between three different levels of the Braves' minor league system. Look out, world.
Apr 25 - 1:56 PM

Christian Villanueva (hamstring) remains out of the Padres' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Villanueva has been out all week with a sore hamstring, though the expectation is that he will be ready to rock Friday after Thursday's scheduled team off-day. Chase Headley is starting at third base and batting fifth Wednesday afternoon against Rockies right-hander Jon Gray. Wil Myers is at first base and batting third with Eric Hosmer still away on family medical emergency leave.
