Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a jammed left knee.

Gosewisch likely jammed the knee stretching to touch first base while trying to beat out a throw in the sixth inning. A jammed knee doesn't sound terribly serious, but the Diamondbacks should give a clearer outlook for the backstop by Thursday. Jordan Pacheco will likely fill in at catcher if Gosewisch is forced to miss time.

Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent knee injury.

Gosewisch appeared to hurt his left knee trying to beat out a throw to first base. He stayed on the ground beyond first base for a while before leaving with a trainer. Jordan Pacheco replaced Gosewisch, who was 0-for-3 in the game, behind the dish.

Matt Adams is expected to miss 3-4 months with a strained right quad, the team announced Wednesday.

It's still unclear whether he'll require surgery, but either way his season is officially in jeopardy. Mark Reynolds moves into an everyday role with the injury, and the NL Central-leading Cardinals may be forced to look outside the organization for help at some point.

Dillon Gee (groin) allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in his final rehab start with Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday.

Gee allowed just five hits while walking two and striking out four in the outing. He'll rejoin the Mets' rotation next week in San Diego. The club will operate with a six-man rotation for now, meaning nobody will be displaced when Gee returns.

Chris Davis hit two homers, including the game-winning blast, to propel the Orioles past the Astros 5-4 on Wednesday.

Davis connected on a two-run homer against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the fourth inning before launching a game-winning solo shot in the eighth. The multi-homer game was Davis' first this season. Davis is hitting just .216/.293/.464 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in the middle of the Orioles' lineup this season.
May 27 - 8:20 PM

Evan Gattis went 3-for-4 a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Gattis connected on a two-run homer against Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez to tie the game in the seventh inning. The homer was his 10th of the year and his third in his last eight games. Gattis is still hitting just .218 but now has 30 RBI and 21 runs scored this season.
May 27 - 8:15 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed four runs on 10 hits over seven innings in Wednesday's no-decision against the Astros.

Jimenez was staked to a 4-1 lead that he carried into the seventh inning, when the Astros posted three runs to sully his pitching line. Jimenez struck out five while walking a batter on the afternoon. The right-hander hasn't won in his last three starts, remaining at 3-3 with a 3.14 ERA. He'll get his shot at redemption when the O's take on the Astros again Monday.
May 27 - 8:14 PM

Collin McHugh allowed nine hits and four runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Things fell apart for McHugh in the fourth inning, when the Orioles plated all four of their runs against the right-hander. That included back-to-back homers from Chris Davis and Steve Pearce. McHugh was otherwise pretty good, striking out five without walking a batter. He'll carry a 5-2 record and 4.24 ERA into Tuesday's rematch with the same O's.
May 27 - 8:14 PM

Collin Cowgill (hand) will meet with doctors Wednesday.

Cowgill tried to swing a bat recently without much success. A trip to the disabled list could be in store. More should be known after his meeting with doctors on Wednesday.
May 27 - 7:27 PM

Cory Rasmus (abdomen) could begin a rehab assignment next week.

Rasmus had surgery to repair a core muscle in late March. He'll likely need a few weeks on the rehab assignment before returning to the Angels in mid-June.
May 27 - 7:24 PM

Conor Gillaspie is expected back in the White Sox' lineup Thursday.

Gillaspie didn't start any of the team's games in Toronto for fear of the turf's effect on his plantar fasciitis. There doesn't appear to be any recurrence, though, so he should be fine moving forward.
May 27 - 7:19 PM

Scott Van Slyke is dealing with a mild back injury.

It would explain why Van Slyke hasn't appeared in a game since Monday. The injury doesn't sound serious, so he should be back in game action soon.
May 27 - 7:14 PM

Scott Kazmir will have an MRI of his left shoulder taken Thursday.

Kazmir left Wednesday's start against the Tigers after three innings with shoulder tightness, so the club will have it looked at. More should be known about his outlook after the results of the MRI are known.
May 27 - 7:01 PM

Yoenis Cespedes finished 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Tigers' 3-2 defeat of the A's on Wednesday afternoon at Oakland's O.co Coliseum.

Cespedes drew a walk in the top of the second, singled in the top of the fourth, and then clubbed a three-run homer off A's reliever Dan Otero in the top of the fifth. All while receiving friendly applause from the Oakland fans in his old stomping ground. Cespedes is batting .291/.327/.489 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 48 games this season for Detroit.
May 27 - 6:56 PM

Joakim Soria earned his 15th save of the season Wednesday in the Tigers' defeat of the A's.

Soria gave up a leadoff single to Stephen Vogt and a one-out walk to Mark Canha, but he ended the threat by striking out Brett Lawrie and Marcus Semien in order. Soria boasts a 1.27 ERA, 0.75 WHIP, and 17/4 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings this season and should remain a highly valuable fantasy closer all year on another good Tigers team.
