Jose Valverde surrenders two runs in nonsave situation
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:06 pm ET) Mets pitcher Jose Valverde pitched the ninth inning in a nonsave situation Wednesday and gave up two earned runs on three hits while striking out one and surrendering two solo home runs in his team's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

After opening the season with five scoreless appearances, Valverde has allowed five earned runs and three home runs over two innings in his last two games. He'll have to turn things around quickly if he wants to remain the team's preferred option in save situations.


Brandon McCarthy takes third loss Wednesday vs. Mets
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:00 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy was saddled with the loss after giving up three earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out five in the Mets' 5-2 win Wednesday.

McCarthy (0-3) pitched better Wednesday than he had all season, as he had given up five runs or more in each of his previous three starts. He owns a 7.11 ERA and 16:6 K:BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings. McCarthy is scheduled to take on the Cubs in Chicago Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:57 pm ET) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson went 0 for 1 as a pinch hitter in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Granderson is dealing with multiple injuries after crashing into the outfield wall earlier this week. However, he is expected to rejoin the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against the Braves, MLB.com reports.


Will Middlebrooks runs in outfield Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:54 pm ET) Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks was able to do some light running in the outfield during batting practice Wednesday, the Boston Globe reports.

Middlebrooks played just four games this season before being placed on the disabled list with a calf injury. He could begin a rehab assignment at some point next week.


Taijuan Walker's MRI reveals shoulder impingement
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:51 pm ET) Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker will be shut down for two weeks after an MRI Wednesday revealed an impingement in his shoulder, MLB.com reports.

If Walker looks good after the time off, the team will begin the progression of his rehab again. He was scratched from Tuesday's scheduled rehab start due to stiffness in the pitching shoulder.


Mariners looking internally for Sunday starter
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:48 pm ET) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Wednesday that the team's Sunday starter "will probably be one of our guys internally," the Tacoma News-Tribune reports.

The comment points to Brandon Maurer or Anthony Fernandez being tabbed for the start. Maurer has posted a 2.16 ERA and 17:5 K:BB ratio in 8 1/3 innings with Triple-A Tacoma. Fernandez owns a 4.35 ERA and 12:4 K:BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings over two starts with the same team.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:47 pm ET) Padres third baseman Chase Headley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, due to a mild bicep strain. Manager Bud Black told a local radio station he hopes Headley will miss just the one game after receiving treatment , but he will be day to day moving ahead to Thursday's series finale. 

Angels transfer Ryan Brasier to 60-day disabled list
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:43 pm ET) The Angels transferred pitcher Ryan Brasier to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, clearing a 40-man roster spot for Brennan Boesch.

Brasier showed up to camp this spring with forearm tightness, and it's clear the issue isn't a minor injury. He made seven appearances with the Angels last season, giving up two earned runs in nine innings while striking out seven and walking four.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:38 pm ET) An MRI on the injured ankle of Rangers pitcher Joe Saunders shows he dealing with a bone bruise, FOX Sports Southwest reports.

Saunders threw a bullpen session Wednesday and experienced more pain in the ankle. He'll be shut down for a few days before attempting to throw again.


Dillon Gee earns win with seven scoreless innings Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:35 pm ET) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee earned his first win of the season by allowing just three hits in seven scoreless innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks Wednesday.

Gee (1-0) needed just 72 pitches to skate through seven innings in the win after throwing exactly 100 pitches in each of his first three starts. He owns a 3.71 ERA and 17:7 K:BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings over four starts. Gee is set up to face the Cardinals at home Tuesday.
