Mariners manager Scott Servais expects Kyle Seager (hip) to return for Thursday's series finale against the Tigers.

Seager will miss his fourth straight game on Wednesday but should be ready to roll for Thursday's matinee. Hot-hitting Taylor Mottter will draw another start at third base on Wednesday night. Corey's older brother has hit .246 with no home runs and 12 RBI this season.

Nomar Mazara is not in the Rangers' lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

Mazara has seen his average fall from .352 to .247 during a recent 2-for-31 dry spell. Shin-Soo Choo will handle right field and bat eighth against Twins lefty Hector Santiago on Wednesday. Mazara started the first 21 games of the season, so he was probably due for a night off anyway.

Jose Abreu has been diagnosed with a mild right hip flexor strain.

Abreu took an awkward spill while trying to field a groundball in Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals. A hip flexor strain is something that could send the first baseman to the 10-day disabled list, though the White Sox are calling him day-to-day for now. Todd Frazier moved from third base to first base on Wednesday with Tyler Saladino taking over at the hot corner.

Chase De Jong will start for the Mariners on Sunday against the Indians.

De Jong is going to be filling in for Felix Hernandez, who landed on the disabled list Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation. De Jong has posted decent numbers in the minors but shouldn't be trusted in a spot start against the defending American League champions.

Jose Abreu was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Royals with an apparent leg injury.

Abreu did the splits and planted awkwardly with his right foot while trying to field a groundball in the top of the fifth inning. Todd Frazier shifted from third base to first base and Tyler Saladino took over at the hot corner for Chicago. There should be an update on Abreu within the hour.

Pirates recalled INF Gift Ngoepe from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Ngoepe is the first African-born player to make it to the major league level. The 27-year-old was batting just .241/.308/.379 in 66 plate appearances this season at Triple-A and holds no fantasy relevance.
Apr 26 - 3:32 PM

Pirates optioned RHP Dovydas Neverauskas to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Neverauskas became the first native of Lithuania to appear in a major league game on Monday night against the Cubs, but he yielded a run on two hits in two innings of work. The 24-year-old right-hander should get another shot soon.
Apr 26 - 3:30 PM

George Springer (hamstring) is out again Wednesday versus the Indians.

Springer subbed into Tuesday night's game after Teoscar Hernandez suffered a major knee injury, but the Astros don't want to push it with his tight left hamstring. Josh Reddick is in center field and batting leadoff on Wednesday.
Apr 26 - 3:28 PM

Jose Altuve (head) is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

Altuve took a blow to the head Tuesday when he collided with teammate Teoscar Hernandez in shallow right field, but the star second baseman was quickly cleared of a concussion. He'll take a day of rest anyway Wednesday versus the Indians, with Marwin Gonzalez covering second base.
Apr 26 - 3:26 PM

Kyle Seager (hip) remains out of the Mariners' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Seager told reporters Tuesday that his hip feels fine and he tried to talk his way into the starting lineup Wednesday night, but manager Scott Servais will play it safe with his star third baseman. Taylor Motter is at the hot corner and batting fifth Wednesday versus the Tigers.
Apr 26 - 3:24 PM

Mariners recalled OF Ben Gamel from Triple-A Tacoma.

Gamel was off to a decent start this season at Triple-A and will give the Mariners much-needed outfield depth in the absence of Mitch Haniger, who landed on the disabled list Wednesday with a right oblique strain.
Apr 26 - 3:21 PM

Mariners recalled LHP Dillon Overton from Triple-A Tacoma.

Seattle has added three fresh bullpen arms Wednesday after Tuesday night's 19-9 drubbing at the hands of the Tigers. Overton will presumably work in long relief.
Apr 26 - 3:19 PM

Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Casey Fien from to Triple-A Tacoma.

Fien was outrighted off the Mariners' 40-man roster on April 12 after allowing seven earned runs over 5 2/3 innings of relief, but he is suddenly needed again.
Apr 26 - 3:17 PM

Mariners recalled RHP Chase De Jong from Triple-A Tacoma.

De Jong worked four scoreless innings of relief in his last appearance at the major league level. He'll operate as a long man out of the Seattle bullpen.
Apr 26 - 3:16 PM

White Sox activated RHP Juan Minaya from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Charlotte.

Minaya made a hitless rehab appearance on Tuesday night, but the White Sox don't currently have a spot for him in their bullpen. The right-hander had been on the disabled list since Opening Day with an abdominal strain.
