Mitch Haniger (wrist) was able to hit in the batting cages and is hopeful to play against the Athletics on Thursday.

Haniger is out of the lineup on Wednesday with a bruise in his right wrist, but the fact he's feeling well enough to swing the sticks gives him a chance to get back into the lineup quickly. The Mariners might want to take precaution -- they've had as many injuries to their lineup as anyone -- and give him an extra day, however. Either way, it doesn't sound like this will be a long-term injury.

Marcell Ozuna was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals because he overslept.

The Cardinals had to send somebody to Ozuna's apartment to wake him up and he did not arrive at Busch Stadium until after the game had started. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny came to Ozunza's defense in his postgame presser, telling reporters that Ozuna "couldn’t be any more regretful for not being here today on time" and that the team would "move forward." But it's obviously a really bad look for a guy who's batting just .253/.295/.331 through 44 games in his first year with the club.

Tyler Lyons (back) will be activated from the 10-day bullpen on Friday before the Cardinals' game against the Pirates.

Lyons will travel with the team, and then be activated for the series-opener against Pittsburgh. He's been out since May 9 with a mid back strain, and he's registered a 6.17 ERA over 18 relief appearances.
May 23 - 8:09 PM

Clayton Kershaw (biceps) threw an extended bullpen session on Wednesday.

Manger Dave Roberts told reports that Kershaw "felt good" after the bullpen, although he added that it was more about how he felt physically than his execution. The star southpaw will next throw a simulated game on Saturday assuming there are no setbacks from the bullpen, and then he'll likely make 1-2 rehab starts before rejoining the Dodgers' rotation at some point in early June.
May 23 - 8:04 PM

Jerad Eickhoff (lat) will visit a surgeon who specializes in Thoracic Outlet Syndrome to discuss the nerve issues in his fingers.

Eickhoff felt a twinge at the tips of his middle and index finger when throwing breaking-balls in his rehab start on Monday. He'll visit with Dr. Robert Thompson, a vascular surgeon who specializes in Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. For now, We should know more about the next steps for the right-hander after the visit.
May 23 - 7:56 PM

Josh Lucas will start against the Mariners on Thursday.

This will essentially be a bullpen day for the Athletics, as Lucas will likely get to go through the lineup one time or throw around 50 pitches -- whichever comes first. In two games for the A's, Lucas has registered a 1.35 ERA over 6 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts.
May 23 - 7:27 PM

Matt Davidson was scratched from Wednesday's game against the Orioles with back stiffness.

Davidson was originally in the starting lineup, but was pulled before the game in favor of Jose Rondon, who is in the lineup as the designated hitter and hitting seventh against Baltimore. For now, Davidson should be considered day-to-day, but he'll likely undergo further testing in the coming days.
May 23 - 7:23 PM

Freddy Galvis doubled twice in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Galvis now has seven doubles on the season, and he scored his 18th run of the year as well. He's swung the bat much better as of late, but he's still hitting just .236 on the season with 13 RBI and three homers over his 51 games with San Diego in the 2018 campaign.
May 23 - 7:20 PM

Manuel Margot went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a stolen base in a victory over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Margot gave the Padres a 1-0 lead with an RBI single off of Erick Fedde in the fifth, and he stole his sixth base of the season shortly after. The former Red Sox prospect is still struggling at the plate, as he is still hitting .191/.234/.287 with a homer, 12 RBI and six stolen bases over eight attempts in 38 games.
May 23 - 7:17 PM

Matt Adams went 3-for-3 with a homer in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

Adams was the only effective Washington hitter, and he hit his 11th homer of the season when he took Tyson Ross deep in the seventh inning. The strong run for the 29-year-old veteran continues, as he's now slashing .273/.375/.618 with the 11 homers and 28 RBI in 41 games.
May 23 - 7:13 PM

Brad Hand pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings on Wednesday against the Nationals and picked up his 15th save of the season.

Hand struck out two, and the only hit he allowed was a double to Anthony Rendon. Hand now is 15-for-17 in save tries in 2018, and his ERA now sits at 2.08 along with a WHIP of 1.12 on the year.
May 23 - 7:10 PM

Erick Fedde pitched well in a sport start on Wednesday against the Padres, but took the loss while allowing one earned run in 5 2/3 innings with six strikeouts.

Fedde did allow three total runs, but two were unearned. This was the Fedde we were hoping to see when he was considered a top prospect just a few years ago, as he commanded the zone with all of his pitches and made very few mistakes; albeit against a weak Padres lineup. He'll likely head back to Triple-A, but this was a strong audition start for anyone considering Fedde in a deal near the deadline.
May 23 - 7:08 PM

Tyson Ross was excellent in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday, allowing one run in 6 2/3 innings with nine strikeouts in a 3-1 victory.

Matt Adams had three hits and a homer off of Ross. The rest of the Nationals lineup had two hits total. It's just another in an excellent stretch of starts for the 31-year-old right-hander, and his ERA is now down to 3.13 on the season. One can't help but wonder what the Padres could get in return for the right-hander, but for now, he's the team's best starting pitcher. We'll see him back on the bump for San Diego against the Marlins next Tuesday.
May 23 - 7:07 PM

Matt Davidson has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

The reasons for the scratch are not yet known. Jose Rondon takes Davidson's place and will DH and hit seventh against Baltimore. We'll update you when we find out the reason for Davidson's absence from the lineup.
May 23 - 7:07 PM

Rich Hill (blister) threw another bullpen session on Wednesday.

Hill also threw a bullpen session on Tuesday, and he told reporters he touched 92 mph with his fastball in his latest bullpen session on Wednesday. Hill is still wearing a band-aid over his left middle finger -- something he isn't legally allowed to do -- and he still projects to come back to the Los Angeles rotation at some point in the middle of June.
