Player News
Rangers CF Delino DeShields back in the lineup Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:55 am ET) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields is back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's matinee with the Indians. DeShields will be in center field and bat lead-off for manager Brian Bannister.

DeShields got the night off on Tuesday in favor of Leonys Martin. But with the former swining the bat well, he'll get the start on Wednesday. DeShields is riding a modest six-game hitting streak, during which is he batting .304 with a double and a triple. 


Nats' Williams on Strasburg: He's healthy but struggling with command
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:55 am ET) It has been a frustrating start to the season for Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who is 3-5 with a 6.50 ERA through his first nine starts.

His ERA has not been lower than 4.50 after a start this season, and manager Matt Williams pinpoints the right-hander's issues on not having a good feel for his fastball.

"The issue has been fastball command," Williams told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday. "The command hasn't been there. For all intents and purposes, he's healthy."


Indians David Murphy will have extended role against Rangers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9:49 am ET) Indians' David Murphy will start in right field for just the fourth time this season on Wednesday against the Rangers. 

Murphy, who sees the majority of his playing time as a designated hitter, is hitting .322 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 93 at-bats this season.


Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka to make rehab start Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:48 am ET) Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to make his second rehab start on Wednesday, and will throw around 65 pitches with Triple-A. Tanaka is nearing his return from the disabled list, as he recovers from forearm soreness and wrist tendinitis. And the Yankees are very much looking forward to Tanaka's return.

“We know how much he means to this team,” general manager Brian Cashman said, per the New York Post. “Him being healthy changes this team a lot.”

Tanaka's next step could be to rejoin the rotation if Wednesday's start goes well.

“I think you want to hear that the stuff was sharp, that he was able to locate his pitches, that he was able to use his pitches and he feels comfortable the next day,” manager Joe Girardi said.


Braves ace Julio Teheran frustrated with struggles through 10 starts
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:47 am ET) Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran is not happy with how his season has gone through the first two months of the season. Following Tuesday's loss against the Dodgers, the right-hander has a 4.91 ERA and .303 opponents' batting average through 10 starts.

"I've never gone through this kind of thing," Teheran said, per MLB.com. "But I'm just trying to learn from it and trying to do my best to get through it. Hopefully, I can work hard and get back to where I want to be like I did the past two years."

Teheran is having a lot of struggles against left-handed batters. The right-hander has a 5.66 ERA and .371 opponents' batting average vs. lefties.

"It comes down to execution of pitches," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Those pitches he's trying to get to come back against left-handers are getting left right over the middle of the plate. He's not missing barrels. We need to work on that."


Indians SS Mike Aviles gets the start against Rangers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9:41 am ET) Indians shortstop Mike Aviles will make his second consecutive start against the Rangers on Wednesday. 

Aviles, who went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout in his team's 4-3 loss on Tuesday, will look to improve his .310 batting average after getting another start under his belt.


Yankees RP Dellin Betances strikes out the side in Tuesday's win
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9:40 am ET) Yankees reliever Dellin Betances pitched another perfect inning in Tuesday's victory over the Royals. He struck out the side in the eighth inning, continuing his dominant season thus far.

The hard-throwing righty hasn't allowed an earned run this season. And perhaps even more impressive is the fact he hasn't given up a hit in his last 8 2/3 innings, spanning seven appearances. 

"We get paid to get outs," Betances said, per the New York Post. "I try to do the best job I can out there. I always try to improve on whatever I need to do. I feel good, I’ve felt good for a long time."

And he's looked good too. He has a terrific 13.7 K/9 ratio after Tuesday's performance.

"His confidence just seems to be growing," Tuesday's starter and winner Adam Warren said. "He’s always had that stuff, but he knows how to harness it now. It’s getting to the point of ridiculousness."


D-Backs' Chip Hale: Archie Bradley relying too much on fastball
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:28 am ET) Diamondbacks rookie starting pitcher Archie Bradley had another rough outing Tuesday at St. Louis and has struggled since returning from the disabled list. Bradley, who was struck in the head by a line drive during an April 28 start vs. Colorado, has an 11.89 ERA in three starts since returning to action.

"No, the injury is past," Bradley said, per MLB.com. "It's just bad baseball, it's bad pitching, it's bad pitches, it's bad sequences, it's just everything is not good right now and I know that. I don't feel sorry for myself. I don't think anyone else should. I've just got to get it fixed, I've got to get it fixed quick."

Manager Chip Hale said Bradley is relying too much on his fastball and not enough on his curveball and changeup.

"He was relying on the fastball early again and was not throwing enough strikes," Hale said of Bradley's outing Tuesday. "The good hitters, like they are, ambushed him a couple of times. He's got to get control of those other pitches so he can use them. He can't just be a thrower in this league. You've got to be a pitcher."


Giants 1B Brandon Belt's bat contributes in win against Brewers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9:23 am ET) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt has been on a offensive tear as of late. He continued the trend on Tuesday, hitting 1 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI in his team's 6-3 win over the Brewers.

For the season, Belt is hitting .301/.375/.510 with five home runs and 20 RBI in 143 at-bats.


Giants RF Hunter Pence records RBI in win against Brewers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(9:14 am ET) Giants right fielder Hunter Pence is getting back into the groove of things. He got a hit, an RBI and scored a run in his team's 6-3 win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Pence, who missed a huge portion of the season because of a lingering forearm injury, is hitting .326 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 43 at-bats this season.
