Ender Inciarte pushed his hit streak to ten games with a sixth inning single in San Diego. The season-best stretch has seen the outfielder elevate his average a dozen points over a two week period. His ability to reach base has been demonstrated all season, and now consistent contact has him nearing an All-Star appearance. Now with 38 hits this month, Inciarte has the chance to join a short list of Braves' players with 40 hits in consecutive months.
Braves' catcher Tyler Flowers left Wednesday's game against San Diego in the sixth inning. The left forearm contusion is not expected to be serious as he is only listed day-to-day. Flowers recorded a double before being hit by a pitch that brought in one of the team's four runs. The injury was not considered an immediate concern as he finished his time on the base paths before being replaced. Kurt Suzuki will take over behind the plate. After a promising May, he's faltered with a lowly .162 average this month.
Bartolo Colon recorded his eighth loss of the season in only 13 starts. Colon, who made his return from the disabled list on Wednesday, pitched only four innings before being replaced. The six allowed runs mark the eighth time this season that the veteran has seen five or more runners cross home. There was no guarantee that Colon would remain in the rotation with a good start, and this likely ensures he will be sidelined until the team makes a permanent decision over the break.
St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Trevor Rosenthal picked up the save on Wednesday night, but he didn't make it easy. He tossed the ninth inning, but allowed a run on two walks and a hit. With manager Mike Matheny not showing tons of confidence in closer Seung-Hwan Oh, Rosenthal may be worth a speculative add, even though he's been going through struggles of his own.
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright pitched well on Wednesday night, scattering eight hits in 6 1/3 innings. He allowed just two runs despite the eight hits and a walk, mostly in part to eight strikeouts. The veteran righty is having an up-and-down season, with several good starts mixed in with blowup starts. His ERA sits at 5.17, and he's hard to trust outside of NL-only leagues right now.
Perhaps building on his incredible duel against Yu Darvish last week in the Bronx, New York Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka scored another quality start tonight against the White Sox in Chicago. Given an early lead, the 28-year-old tossed six innings, allowing two runs on six hits while walking two and striking out five. He ran into trouble in the fifth inning, but after a double play dealt a blow to Chicago's rally, he escaped. Tanaka earned the victory, improving his record to 6-7, while his ERA now stands at 5.56. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Promoted today after Matt Holliday went on the disabled list, 22-year-old Dominican infielder Miguel Andujar was immediately placed into the starting lineup tonight by the Yankees. Taking on the Chicago White Sox, Andujar stepped up to the plate in the first inning for his first professional plate appearance. With the Yankees ahead by a run, he singled home two more runs, making an immediate impact. In the third inning he singled again, and after grounding out in the sixth, he doubled home two more runs in the ninth. Andujar became the first Yankee ever to record at least three hits and three RBI in his first professional game, while setting the franchise record for RBI in a debut. The Yankees would win this one easily, 12-3.
Minnesota Twins LHP Mason Melotakis was sent outright to Class AAA Rochester Wednesday, June 28.
New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird (foot, ankle) might not make it back this season, according to manager Joe Girardi. There is 'concern' because Bird still has soreness in his foot and ankle.
Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Class AA Tennessee Thursday, June 29.
Fears are continuing to mount in the New York Yankees organization that first baseman Greg Bird could be gone for the year. The 24-year-old received a cortisone shot last week after his ankle and foot injuries continued to cause him time during his rehab. Bird has still not felt any improvement, and manager Joe Girardi stated his status has raised concerns that he won't be able to play the rest of the year. His injury has caused the Yankees trouble at the first base position, as Chris Carter failed to be effective while Tyler Austin has succumbed to recent injuries.
Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (ankle) sustained a 'mild to moderate' ankle sprain in the team's game Wednesday, June 28, against the Washington Nationals, which is why he had to leave early. No decision has been made as of yet about placing Bryant on the disabled list.
Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia (knee) had to leave the game Wednesday, June 28, versus the New York Yankees because of soreness in his left knee.
Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso (knee) exited the game Wednesday, June 28, due to a knee contusion, according to manager Bob Melvin. No X-rays are planned as of yet but he was seen walking with a limp.
Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Andrew Miller was excellent as usual on Wednesday, tossing 1 2/3 perfect innings while striking out four. Miller collected his 17th hold and lowered his ERA to 1.52. Aside from a rough patch a few weeks ago, Miller has been everything fantasy owners could have hoped for and more. His strikeouts and ratio stats make him valuable even in leagues where holds don't count.
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer pitched well on Wednesday, picking up a win and a quality start. Bauer tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowing only one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three. It was Bauer's seventh win of the season, as his record improved to 7-6 despite a rough 5.24 ERA.
Tampa Bay Rays RHP Danny Farquhar was designated for assignment Wednesday, June 28.
After being replaced on the 10-day disabled list earlier in the day, San Francisco Giants closer Mark Melancon (elbow) received a platelet-rich plasma in his forearm and not his elbow which landed him on the disabled list. Hunter Strickland got the one out save for the Giants today, but early reports have Sam Dyson who was unavailable today as the more likely interim closer. Melancon is hoping to return after the All-Star break.
Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers RHP Chase Anderson (oblique) will be placed on the disabled list and he 'faces a long absence.'
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RHP Matt Shoemaker (forearm) played catch Wednesday, June 28, and he is set to throw a bullpen Thursday, June 29. It's unknown what step will be next.
