Moreland, who is currently on the 15-day DL with an elbow injury, said after the session he was feeling great. He is hoping to take batting practice Thursday or Friday and hopefully begin his rehab assignment as early as Saturday.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5:44 pm ET) Third baseman Chase Headley is back in the Yankees' lineup after missing Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. 

Headley was dealing with a sore back but expressed optimism he'd be able to return by Wednesday. He's batting seventh in the lineup. 

For the season, Headley is hitting .247 with 10 RBI in 97 at-bats this season

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:40 pm ET) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy may rejoin the team as early as Thursday from his rehab assignment, manager Buck Showalter said per the Baltimore Sun.

Hardy, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, is scheduled to play his third rehab game Wednesday. He went 2 for 4 at the plate in his first rehab start on Monday.


Orioles C Wieters (elbow) continues recovery in extended spring
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:40 pm ET) Orioles catcher Matt Wieters served as the designated hitter Wednesday during an extended spring training game. He is expected to catch six or seven innings on Thursday, according to MASNSports.com. No further next steps were revealed. 

Wieters is still rehabbing after he suffered a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Caleb Joseph will continue to be the primary catcher for manager Buck Showalter until Wieters is able to return.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:30 pm ET) Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated Wednesday that pitcher Jake McGee had no setbacks following Tuesday's rehab appearance. Cash said McGee would throw again at Triple-A Durham on Friday, and will do so again at least once, if not twice more before he's ready to rejoin the team, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

 


Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner out Wednesday with neck injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:27 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays while dealing with a stiff neck, according to the New York Daily News.

Gardner suffered the injury on a head first slide in Tuesday's game. He had started the last five games in a row for New York and is hitting .309 with 13 RBI in 81 at-bats.


Cardinals' Jordan Walden has muscle strain, will rest 6-10 weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:25 pm ET) Cardinals pitcher Jordan Walden has been diagnosed with a muscle strain in his shoulder, requiring six-to-10 weeks of rest, but he will not need to undergo surgery, MLB.com reports.

Walden was placed on the disabled list with a biceps injury but received a second opinion on his MRI this week. He won't resume his throwing program for at least six weeks, so it's quite possible he won't return before the All-Star break. Walden has allowed one earned run in 10 1/3 innings while striking out 12 batters in 12 appearances.


White Sox P Carlos Rodon expected to start Saturday vs. Reds
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:21 pm ET) White Sox pitching prospect Carlos Rodon is expected to make his first Major League start on Saturday against the Reds, according to the Chicago Tribune. The young left-hander was seen throwing in Chicago's bullpen on Wednesday, which could be a prelude to a start, per MLB.com.

Rodon made his MLB debut on April 21, and has appeared in just three games for the White Sox. He last pitched on Saturday, when he gave up six hits and no runs while striking out two and walking one in three innings against the Twins.

The White Sox will need a spot starter now that Jeff Samardzija has dropped his appeal and will begin serving a five-game suspension on Wednesday. The team has not confirmed if Rodon will indeed make the start on Friday.


Walt Weiss: Rockies' Blackmon has 'embraced the leadoff role'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:17 pm ET) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Wednesday that center fielder Charlie Blackmon has "embraced the leadoff role and is really evolving, but he's put in the work to do that," MLB.com reports.

Blackmon, who studies video intensely, leads all NL leadoff hitters with five home runs.

"You see his goofy side once in a while, but there's a lot of intelligence behind that goofiness, and tremendous work ethic," Weiss said.

Blackmon has hit .316/.365/.579 with 14 RBI, 14 runs scored and two stolen bases in 95 at-bats coming into Wednesday's doubleheader.


Red Sox manager John Farrell showing faith in Allen Craig
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:16 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig is proving in a short time he can be a quality reserve player for Boston, according to the Providence Journal.

Manager John Farrell likes what he's seen from Craig so far that he wants to continue to insert him in the lineup.

"He's taking quality at-bats," Farrell said. "I'm giving him a chance to run with it."

Craig is 3 for 9 at the plate this month with a home run and two RBI.
