Evan Gattis finished 2-for-3 with two home runs, five RBI and a walk across three at-bats on Wednesday at Oakland.

Gattis connected for a three-run shot off of Emilio Pagan in the second inning, while belting a solo homer off of Danny Coulombe in the seventh. He has three homers and 10 RBI over the past two games, and nine home runs with 34 RBI across the past 26 outings dating back to May 11. He has raised his average from .196 to .246 during the span, too. Gattis in on fire and fantasy owners are enjoying the productive ride.

Yasiel Puig was ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Giants after shoving catcher Nick Hundley.

Hundley began chirping at Puig after a foul tip in the bottom of the seventh inning and the two went face-to-face in front of home plate before Puig shoved Hundley twice and then took a swipe at his mask as both benches cleared. Hundley also got tossed. Puig could be facing a suspension for initiating the physical contact.

X-rays turned up negative on James Paxton's left arm.

He's been diagnosed with a left forearm contusion, which qualifies as excellent news given how demoralized Paxton looked as he walked off the field in Oakland after getting struck by a line drive in the bottom of the first inning. He might have his next start pushed back, but for now it sounds like the 29-year-old southpaw should avoid another trip to the disabled list.

Kolten Wong went 3-for-3 with a two-RBI double and a solo home run in the Cardinals' win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Wong pulled a two-RBI double down the right-field line in the fourth inning and later added a towering solo home run that just cleared the wall in right. He also had a single and a walk, reaching base in all four plate appearances on the night. Wong is batting .341 since the beginning of July, but he has just two homers and two steals over that span. He just doesn't provide much category juice and remains stuck at the bottom of the Cards' batting order.

Ronald Acuna Jr. went 3-for-5 with two more homers and four RBI as the Braves topped the Marlins 10-6 on Tuesday.

Juan Soto had 192 points of OPS on Acuna (.992 to .800) when the Nationals and Braves finished a doubleheader a week ago on Aug. 7. At the close of play tonight, the margin is likely to be down to 40-50 points, as Acuna is all of the way up to .922 after hitting seven homers in seven games. The NL Rookie of the Year award race is most certainly on.

J.A. Happ walked four but gave up just one single over seven shutout innings Tuesday in the Yankees’ 4-1 victory over the Rays.

The four free passes Happ handed out were more than he issued over his last four starts combined, but a C.J. Cron single with one out in the fourth inning was the only base knock he permitted. Over his first 19 innings in pinstripes across three starts, Happ has given up just eight hits and four runs, boasting a 1.89 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. He’ll take on his former team, the Blue Jays, on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Rick Porcello was on point Tuesday, whiffing a season-high 10 batters across seven innings of one-run ball in the Red Sox’ 2-1 win over the Phillies.

Rhys Hoskins broke up Porcello’s perfect game with a leadoff homer in the fifth inning and Odubel Herrera added a two-out single in the same frame, but those were the only two baserunners the Phillies managed all night against the former Cy Young winner. He needed just 90 pitches to cruise through his seven innings and even added a double at the plate. It might have been Porcello’s best start of the season, which is saying something considering he threw a complete game versus the Yankees two starts ago. Porcello has mixed in some clunkers, which is why his ERA is over 4.00, but the 29-year-old really has had a fantastic season. He faces the Indians at home the next time out.

Kenley Jansen (heart) is hoping to be cleared to return after a follow-up visit with a cardiologist next Monday.

Jansen threw a successful bullpen session Monday, did conditioning work on Tuesday, and is planning to throw to hitters on Wednesday. He'll then travel with the Dodgers to Seattle and face hitters again on Friday. The 30-year-old closer was initially expected to miss 4-6 weeks when he landed on the disabled list August 8 with a recurrence of heart problems, but he'll beat that timetable by a mile if everything goes according to plan.

Giants activated 1B Brandon Belt from the 10-day disabled list.

Belt will be available off the bench Tuesday night against the Dodgers and should return to the starting lineup on Wednesday. He missed a little over two weeks of action with a hyperextended left knee. The 30-year-old first baseman has batted .278/.372/.470 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 85 games this season.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he's optimistic Brandon Crawford will avoid the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Crawford took a knee to the head in an outfield collision with teammate Gorkys Hernandez on Monday night at Dodger Stadium, but he has apparently passed his first round of concussion tests and could be ready to return to action before the end of this week. Alen Hanson is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Tuesday versus Los Angeles.

Angels purchased the contract of INF Taylor Ward from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Ward will play third base and bat seventh Tuesday in his major league debut against the Padres and right-hander Brett Kennedy. The 24-year-old former catcher was slashing .349/.446/.531 with 14 home runs and 18 stolen bases in 102 games this season in the upper minors and makes for an intriguing fantasy option for the stretch run, assuming the Angels give him regular playing time. They really have no reason not to.

Robinson Cano is starting at first base and batting second Tuesday night against the Athletics.

It'll be his first major league game since he got hit with an 80-game PED suspension back in mid-May. Cano slashed .389/.450/.778 over 20 plate appearances on his minor league rehab assignment and is worth activating immediately in mixed fantasy leagues. He is expected to rotate between first base, second base, and third base, getting something close to everyday playing time.
