Astros and OF George Springer avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $24 million contract.

The deal is a compromise after Springer recently requested $10.5 million and was offered $8.5 million by the Astros when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. Springer is a Super Two player, so he will have one more year of arbitration eligibility in 2020. The 28-year-old is coming off a brilliant year where he batted .282/.367/.522 with 34 home runs over 140 games.

A CT scan on Ronald Acuna's left elbow came back clear and he is considered day-to-day.

Acuna was pulled from Wednesday night's game against the Marlins shortly after taking a Jose Urena pitch off his elbow in the bottom of the first inning -- in what appeared to be an intentional plunking. But he only suffered a bruise and some swelling, and it sounds like the 20-year-old phenom should be able to return to action this weekend. Acuna is batting .358/.425/.821 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, and 25 runs scored over his last 25 games.

Rays activated OF Tommy Pham from the 10-day disabled list.

Pham missed two weeks of action with a small fracture in his right foot -- an injury he sustained in just his second game with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old outfielder is batting .244/.332/.393 with 14 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 404 plate appearances this season between the Cardinals and Rays. He slashed .306/.411/.520 with 23 homers and 25 steals in 2017. Pham will start in left field and hit cleanup in his return Thursday versus Yankees righty Masahiro Tanaka.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was stellar in his return from the disabled list on Wednesday, pitching six scoreless innings against the Giants.

Ryu allowed three hits, walked none and struck out six before coming out. It was a performance much like a few he had before going down with a groin injury at the beginning of May. He can be highly useful in mixed leagues for however long he's healthy this time.

Brandon Nimmo went 5-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored as the Mets crushed the Orioles 16-5 on Wednesday.

He got things started early and kept them going all night. He led off the ballgame with a single and came around to score on a Wilmer Flores sacrifice fly. He banged out an RBI-double in the fourth, and tripled to drive in both Kevin Plawecki and Jose Reyes in the sixth. The outfielder's big day boosted his line to .263/.387/.503 with 15 home runs, 39 RBI, 65 runs and eight stolen bases in 411 plate appearances. His .890 OPS leads the team by a wide margin.

Dylan Bundy got taken out behind the woodshed for a seven-run beatdown at the hands of the Mets on Wednesday.

He served up a solo home run to Todd Frazier and a whole bunch of hard contact to the rest of the lineup. He made it through 5 1/3 innings and allowed 11 hits total (six of them for extra bases) while striking out five in the loss. He gave up eight runs in his last start, so it's been a rough stretch for the former elite prospect. He falls to 7-11 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after 23 starts. He has a nice 137:41 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 131 2/3 innings but has teed up 30 round-trippers already.

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in his first game with the Phillies, leading his new squad to a 7-4 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He cracked an RBI-double that plated Rhys Hoskins in the fourth inning, then scored on a Carlos Santana knock. In the seventh, Ramos banged another double that drove in Justin Bour and Asdrubal Cabrera. The veteran catcher was activated off the disabled list earlier in the day after recovering from a hamstring injury. He was acquired from the Rays last month for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Ramos has a .303 batting average with 14 homers and 56 RBI in 319 plate appearances and should be considered a top-three fantasy catcher for the rest of the season.

Eugenio Suarez struck out in all five of his at-bats in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

The Reds' third baseman is having a fantastic season but this could go down as the worst game of his life. He will hope to put this embarrassing fiasco behind him tomorrow. He is slashing .296/.376/.554 with 26 home runs and is second in the National League with 88 RBI in 104 games.
Aug 16 - 12:55 AM

Tommy Pham will be activated off the 10-day disabled list on Thursday.

Pham was scheduled to play in a rehab game for short-season Hudson Valley, but that rehab appearance was cancelled, and instead he'll make a return to the Tampa Bay lineup after being out for over two weeks with the fractured right foot. In a corresponding move, the Rays have sent down Jacob Faria. On the year, Pham has a .244/.332/.393 line with 14 homers and 10 steals over 100 games.

X-rays on Matt Carpenter's right hand came back negative.

That's obviously great news. Carpenter exited after being hit by a Matt Grace offering on Wednesday. This doesn't completely clear Carpenter from missing time, but it certainly appears that Carpenter was able to avoid a long-term injury. We should know more about the severity after the completion of the game.

Jose Urena was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Braves after hitting Ronald Acuna with a pitch.

It was blatantly obvious that the pitch was intended to hit Acuna, and he was justifiably ejected from the game. Benches cleared after he was hit, and Urena was tossed. Braves manager Brian Snitker was also ejected from the game. Expect both to receive a suspension.

Kenley Jansen (heart) was able to throw a 25-pitch bullpen session before Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Jansen told reporters that he "felt great" after throwing, but that he did tire near the end of the workout as he ran on a treadmill and on the field prior to taking the mound. The right-handed closer was initially expected to miss at least a month after experiencing a recurrence of heart issues, but it looks like he'll beat that ETA by a considerable margin, with a real chance to rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen in the next week if everything goes well.
