J.D. Martinez had a two-run single in Friday's win over the Orioles.

Martinez went 2-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored on the night. By knocking in two runs, Martinez is now at 101 RBI for the year. He's the first player in MLB to reach the 100-RBI mark this season. In fact, the next-closest player is Oakland's Khris Davis with 90. What an addition he's been for Boston.

Jose Altuve (knee) will take batting practice on the field before Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

It was announced yesterday that Altuve would be able to take BP on either Tuesday or Wednesday, and it turns out that Wednesday is the day. Altuve has been on the disabled list since July 26 with discomfort in his right knee. It's still not known when Altuve will be ready to play -- he'll almost assuredly need to play in some rehab games before rejoining Houston considering he's missed three weeks -- but if things go well on Wednesday, that rehab could begin soon, giving him a chance to rejoin the Astros before the end of August.

Jose Abreu belted his 21st homer as part of a three-hit afternoon Wednesday in the White Sox’s 6-5 victory over the Tigers.

Abreu drove in a run with an infield single in the third, then drilled a two-run shot to left field in the fifth. He logged another hit in the ninth inning, though the White Sox would strand him at third base. The 31-year-old has found his power stroke in the second half, leaving the yard eight times in 96 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Carlos Rodon surrendered five hits and three runs over eight innings Wednesday in Chicago’s victory over the Tigers.

He racked up six strikeouts and one walk over 106 pitches. Rodon barely made it out of the third, allowing three hits, a walk, a hit-by-pitch and three runs before Niko Goodrum ended the threat by hitting into an inning-ending double play. The left-hander settled down after that, limiting Detroit to just two more hits (both singles) the rest of the day. Rodon has been a workhorse for the Pale Hose, logging at least seven innings in five of his last six starts. He’ll take a pristine 2.69 ERA into his next outing Tuesday versus Minnesota.

Ryan Braun exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs with tightness in his rib cage.

Braun was pinch hit for in the top of the fifth inning because of the rib injury. He'll likely undergo testing, and we should have a further update on his status after the completion of Wednesday's game.

Phillies activated C Wilson Ramos from the 10-day disabled list.

Ramos will start behind the plate and bat sixth Wednesday in his Phillies debut against the Red Sox. He was acquired from the Rays at the July 31 deadline for a player to be named later and is capable of providing big-time value down the stretch at fantasy baseball's shallowest position. The 30-year-old impending free agent catcher had an .834 OPS with 14 home runs and 53 RBI through 76 games with Tampa Bay when he landed on the disabled list in mid-July with a left hamstring strain.
Aug 15 - 3:53 PM

Gleyber Torres is getting the night off Wednesday.

Torres is 4-for-45 (.089) with 16 strikeouts over his last 12 games. He'll take a mental and physical break, with Ronald Torreyes starting at second base and batting ninth Wednesday night against the Rays.
Aug 15 - 3:25 PM

Mookie Betts is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the Phillies.

J.D. Martinez will start in right field and bat cleanup with no DH available at Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park. Betts is presumably available off the bench.

Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle) threw 50 pitches in a four-inning simulated game Wednesday.

Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe watched the workout and says E-Rod looked "sharp." The next step for the 25-year-old left-hander should be a minor league rehab assignment, and it seems like there's a pretty good chance he could be back in the Red Sox rotation before the end of August. Rodriguez had a strong 3.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 110/32 K/BB ratio through 104 2/3 innings (19 starts) when he landed on the disabled list July 15 with a severe right ankle sprain.

Mariners placed LHP James Paxton on the 10-day disabled list with a left forearm contusion.

Paxton suffered the injury during his start Tuesday night against the Athletics when he got hit on the throwing arm by a Jed Lowrie line drive in the bottom of the first inning. He's expected to miss at least one turn in the rotation, but the end result of that frightening incident obviously could have been much worse. Felix Hernandez figures to return to a starting role in Paxton's absence.
Aug 15 - 1:23 PM

Dee Gordon is starting in center field on Wednesday, with Robinson Cano playing second base.

It'll be Gordon's first start in center since May 16. He moved to second base after Cano got hit with an 80-game PED suspension, but with Cano now back in the fold Mariners manager Scott Servais is going to do a little more mixing and matching. Gordon is batting eighth Wednesday versus Athletics left-hander Brett Anderson. Cano will hit second.
Aug 15 - 1:20 PM

Starling Marte is out of the Pirates' starting lineup Wednesday due to illness.

Adam Frazier will start in center field and bat second against Twins right-hander Jose Berrios, with Corey Dickerson in left field and batting leadoff. Elias Diaz is serving as the Pirates' designated hitter at Target Field.
