Nationals signed INF Reid Brignac to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Brignac, 32, spent all of last season at Triple-A in the Astros organization, batting .251/.326/.411 with 13 home runs. He's a career .219/.264/.309 hitter over parts of nine seasons in the majors and is merely a depth addition.

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.

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.

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.
Aug 15 - 1:11 PM

Mike Trout's brother-in-law, former minor league pitcher Aaron Cox, passed away on Wednesday morning.

Cox was only 24 years old and had just retired from professional baseball earlier this summer. Trout, who's currently on the disabled list with wrist inflammation, left the Angels on Tuesday and presumably won't return to the club for at least another couple of days while he and his extended family cope with this tragedy.

Brandon Morrow (biceps) is scheduled to resume throwing off a mound this weekend.

Morrow has been sidelined since the All-Star break due to discomfort in his lower right biceps and there is currently no timetable for his return to the Cubs' bullpen, though a successful mound workout would obviously be a significant step in the right direction. "It’s just kind of a deep thing that’s just sticking around. I can’t put my finger on it," Morrow said Tuesday. "I think the muscle is healed though. So throwing around some discomfort is going to be OK. I’m going to see if it’s good when I continue to stretch it out." Pedro Strop has been serving as the Cubs' primary closer in Morrow's absence.

Michael Wacha (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment after throwing one more bullpen session.

That bullpen workout will either come Wednesday or Thursday, which means the rehab assignment might start next week. Wacha has been on the shelf since June 21 with a left oblique strain, so he'll probably need at least two outings on the farm to get properly stretched back out. He took part in fielding and batting practice Tuesday without issue. The 27-year-old right-hander held a sharp 8-2 record, 3.20 ERA, and 71 strikeouts through 64 1/3 innings (15 starts) this season with the Cardinals.
