Twins closer Glen Perkins records 18th save of the year Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:22 pm ET) Twins closer Glen Perkins worked a perfect ninth inning on Wednesday in Minnesota's 6-4 win over the Red Sox, earning his 18th save of the season.

Perkins forced two fly outs and one ground out without allowing a man to reach base in the inning. Perkins now boasts a 1.19 ERA in 22 2/3 innings of work. Perkins has thrown three of the last five days and is looking forward to a bit of rest, according to the Star Tribune.

"[Thursday] is an off-day, so that's good timing," Perkins said. "I have been good this year. I have felt good. Ever since I took the last two weeks of the season off last year, I have felt good. So no worries, and I'm glad that I get a lot of opportunities to pitch."


Diamondbacks' Tuffy Gosewisch suffers apparent knee injury
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:14 pm ET) Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch suffered an apparent knee injury on a play at first base in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Gosewisch appeared to trip over the bag at first base while trying to beat a tag, and fell to the ground, where he was holding his knee and grimacing in pain. He had to be helped to the dugout and finished the night 0 for 3.

The Diamondbacks' only other catcher on the active roster is Jordan Pacheco. If Gosewisch needs to miss an extended period of time, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is an option at Triple-A after being signed earlier this month.


Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud begins rehab assignment on Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:25 pm ET) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 0 for 3 on Wednesday for Class A St. Lucie as a part of his rehab assignment.

d'Arnaud, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a hand injury, was playing in extended spring training games before heading to St. Lucie on Wednesday. d'Arnaud has not played since April 19 when he suffered the injury and is hitting .317 with 10 RBI on the year.


Mets pitcher Dillon Gee strikes out four in Double-A rehab start
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:22 pm ET) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee allowed three runs, two earned, on five hits in 6 1/3 innings of work for Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday.

Gee, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a groin injury, recorded four strikeouts and two walks in his first start for Double-A. Gee was with Class A St. Lucie to begin his rehab assignment. Gee was originally hoping to rejoin the team this week, but may be called up at the end of the week.

Gee could rejoin the starting rotation on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, according to ESPN.com.

He is 0-2 with a 3.86 ERA in 30 1/3 innings of work this season.


Athletics' Sean Doolittle strikes out two in season debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:14 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle made his season debut on Wednesday, giving up one hit in a scoreless inning of work while striking out two in his team's 3-2 loss to the Tigers.

Doolittle averaged just 89 mph with his fastball in the outing after averaging 94-96 mph in past years, but he said his velocity will return in time, MLB.com reports.

"I think that will give me some confidence moving forward, not having to worry about what the radar gun says and know that I can pitch a little bit now," Doolittle said. "To have those other options to go to, I think it takes a lot of the pressure off."

Doolittle served as the team's regular closer for much of last season, posting a 2.73 ERA and 89:8 K:BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings while recording 22 saves.


Padres 1B Yonder Alonso plays first rehab assignment game Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:54 pm ET) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso went 1 for 3 at the plate in his first rehab game for Class A Elsinore on Wednesday. Alonso, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, also drew a walk.

Alonso hasn't played since May 8 when he suffered the injury and is hitting .333 with 10 RBI in 87 at-bats this season.


Cardinals 1B Matt Adams to miss 3-4 months with quad strain
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:50 pm ET) Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams has been diagnosed with a strained right quadriceps and will be out for the next three to four months, the club announced on Wednesday. 

He was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier Wednesday. 

According to MLB.com, the Cardinals and Adams are still deliberating whether the injury will require surgery. With or without surgery, the time frame of Adams' recovery period places some doubt on whether he will be able to return this season. 

Adams has been in a bit of a slump, batting just .159 in his last 20 games. He's batting .243 for the season. 

With Adams out of the lineup for quite some time, Mark Reynolds is the likely candidate to replace him. 


Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon plays in extended spring game
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:44 pm ET) Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon was able to play five innings of an extended spring training game on Wednesday, manager Matt Williams said per The Washington Post.

Rendon, who is working his way back from an oblqiue strain, took a couple of at-bats and played in the field for all of the innings after his second at-bat. 

"It's important. It helps you get your legs under you," Williams said. "…there's no way to simulate that other than to play. He felt good. His legs felt good."

Rendon is scheduled to get the day off on Thursday and the team will re-evaluate his health.


Orioles pitcher Bud Norris strikes out seven in rehab start Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:40 pm ET) Orioles pitcher Bud Norris allowed four runs on six hits in five innings of work for Double-A Bowie on Wednesday. Norris, who is currently on the 15-day DL with bronchitis, struck out seven with no walks in his appearance. 

Norris was pleased with how his fastball and slider looked, but is still building his strength back after losing 14 pounds, according to MASN Sports.

Norris threw 92 pitches with 66 going for strikes. In his two rehab starts, Norris has allowed six runs in 7 2/3 innings of work.

"I'm pretty tired right now," he said in the Bowie clubhouse. "Was a hot night. That is something I'll have to keep working on. When you lose as much weight as I did, that is what I'm fighting right now, getting back to spring training shape. Get back in the gym tomorrow and keep building up.

"That outing in Triple-A my legs were not under me and tonight I felt they were there whole time. That gives me confidence I can pitch six, seven, eight innings."


Astros DH Evan Gattis smashes 10th home run of 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8:33 pm ET) Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis went 3 for 4 at the plate in Houston's 5-4 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Gattis, who also doubled once, did the bulk of his damage in the seventh innning when he blasted a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez to tie the game at 4, his 10th of the season. Gattis is now hitting .218 with 30 RBI on the year.
