Dallas Beeler surrenders four runs in loss vs. Reds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:03 pm ET) Cubs pitcher Dallas Beeler took a loss Wednesday after giving up four earned runs on six hits and four walks in five innings with no strikeouts in his team's 4-1 defeat against the Reds.

Beeler (0-2) did a solid job in his debut on June 26, giving up just an uneared run but still coming away with a loss. He was less sharp Wednesday, giving up three runs in his fifth and final inning to put his team down 4-1. Beeler owns a 3.27 ERA and 6:7 K:BB ratio in 11 innings over his two starts.


Alfredo Simon strikes out eight in win vs. Cubs
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:02 pm ET) Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon earned a win Wednesday, surrendering just one earned run on four hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings and striking out eight in his team's 4-1 victory over the Cubs.

Simon (12-3) took the sole lead in wins in the National League with Wednesday's victory, giving up just a third-inning solo home run to pick up his eighth straight quality start. He owns a 2.70 ERA and 75:28 K:BB ratio in 116 2/3 innings heading into the break.


Travis d'Arnaud slugs six home runs Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:01 pm ET) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-1 win over the Braves Wednesday.

d'Arnaud has picked up at least one hit in 12 of his 13 games since returning from the minor leagues, and Wednesday's home run was his third in that span. He has hit .213/.289/.354 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 178 at-bats.


Jenrry Mejia picks up ninth save Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:55 pm ET) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia earned his ninth save Wednesday, striking out two while giving up two hits in his team's 4-1 win over the Braves.

Mejia rebounded from a blown save Monday to deliver a scoreless inning Wednesday, though he needed 19 pitches to close the door for the win. He owns a 3.98 ERA and 64:31 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings.


Cliff Lee throws 59 pitches in rehab start Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:51 pm ET) Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee began a rehab assignment with Class A Clearwater Wednesday, throwing 59 pitches without issue.

Lee gave up three runs in four innings during the start, and he's expected to make another with Clearwater Monday. Out since May 18, the pitcher could return just after the All-Star break.


Kevin Siegrest close to beginning rehab assignment
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:46 pm ET) Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist is expected to begin a rehab assignment later this week after completing his third pain-free bullpen session Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

"I feel good," Siegrist said Wednesday. "I'm ready. This has been no fun."

If all goes well with his rehab assignment, the reliever should return to the Cardinals soon after the All-Star break.

"I imagine we'll need to see him -- [because] he's been out for a while -- go multiple innings, probably [make] back-to-back [appearances]," manager Mike Matheny said. "We're going in with the idea that we need to make sure he's covered everything he needs to cover."


Ervin Santana gives up four runs in loss vs. Mets
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:40 pm ET) Braves pitcher Ervin Santana took a loss Wednesday, surrendering four earned runs on six hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 4-1 defeat against the Mets.

Santana (7-6) was in line for his fifth straight quality start before giving up three runs in the seventh inning Wednesday, with two coming on a home run, his first surrendered in four outings. He enters the All-Star break with a 4.01 ERA and 96:31 K:BB ratio in 110 innings.


Dillon Gee surrenders one run in win vs. Braves
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:39 pm ET) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee earned a win in his return Wednesday, giving up one earned run on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out four in his team's 4-1 win over the Braves.

Gee (4-1) was making his first start in two months due to a back injury and picked up right where he left off, recording his sixth straight quality start. His only blemish Wednesday was on a sixth-inning double. Gee owns a 2.56 ERA and 37:16 K:BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings going into the All-Star break.


Yadier Molina suffers thumb strain Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:36 pm ET) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina left Wednesday's game in the third inning due to a right thumb sprain, the team announced.

Molina ended a 0-for-9 streak over his last three games by getting a hit in his only at-bat Wednesday, giving him a .287/.341/.409 line with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 303 at-bats. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated Thursday.


Carlos Ruiz cleared for baseball activities
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:02 pm ET) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz has been cleared to begin baseball activities, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Ruiz's second concussion test in a three-day span went well, so he'll begin to work his way back toward a second-half return. Out since June 26, the catcher has hit .257/.363/.357 with two home runs and 14 RBI in 230 at-bats.
