Braves recall Williams Perez, option Michael Kohn
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2:41 pm ET) The Braves recalled pitcher Williams Perez from Triple-A Gwinnett and optioned pitcher Michael Kohn to the same team.

Perez has made five starts with Gwinnett, going 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA and 21:9 K:BB ratio in 27 innings. He has yet to pitch in a major-league game in the regular season.

Kohn has made six appearances with the Braves without giving up a run or a hit, but he has walked six batters while striking out four.


Pirates shuffle lineup Wednesday, drop Josh Harrison to seventh
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2:38 pm ET) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds but batting seventh for the first time this season.

Harrison led off in 20 of the team's first 21 games, only getting one game off from starting. After his next day off, he was slotted second Friday and left in the spot for three games. Harrison was off again Tuesday and now returns in the bottom third of the order. He has hit just .188/.220/.313 with two home runs and six RBI in 96 at-bats.

With Harrison dropped in the lineup, second baseman Neil Walker has been moved up to the No. 2 spot in the lineup, while the team's regular fifth-through-seventh hitters have been bumped up a spot, with left fielder Starling Marte landing in the cleanup role.

The Pirates are favorites (-160) against the Reds Wednesday with Gerrit Cole on the mound.

Lombardozzi started the year with a .379 batting average, which currently ranks second in the International League. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 minor-league games, while batting .415 (17 for 41) over that span.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pena had started each of the last four games for Cincinnati, and has been hitting fairly well recently. Over his last eight games, the veteran catcher is hitting .269 (7 for 26) with three doubles.

Tucker Barnhart made his fifth start of the year behind the dish, batting eighth for manager Bryan Price. 


Nationals' Bryce Harper launches career high three HRs vs. Marlins
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:03 pm ET) Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper is off to a red-hot start, launching three home runs-- a career high -- through his first three at-bats Wednesday afternoon against Miami. Ryan Zimmerman was the last Washington player to hit three in game on May 29, 2013 against the Orioles.

Harper uncorked a solo home run to left field in the second inning off Tom Koehler. Harper's second home run was a monster two-run shot that landed in the second deck in right field, giving his club a 4-2 advantage in the third inning. He tacked on another solo home run -- an upper-decker -- off Koehler in the fifth inning to give Washington a three-run lead.

Harper has six career multi-home run performances. He is hitting .260/.415/.531 with eight homers, 19 RBI and an MLB-best 26 walks in 28 games. He has 13 career home runs against the Marlins -- more than any other opponent he's faced.
