by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Adam Eaton to begin rehab assignment soon
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:13 pm ET) The Padres optioned infielder Jace Peterson to Triple-A El Paso and designated pitcher Bobby LaFrombroise for assignment Wednesday.

The moves were made to clear a 25-man and a 40-man roster spot for Cameron Maybin, who returned from a 25-game suspension Wednesday. Peterson is just 6 for 53 in 27 games with the Padres. LaFromboise owns a 4.75 ERA and 45:21 K:BB ratio in 53 innings with El Paso.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:10 pm ET) The Padres reinstated outfielder Cameron Maybin from the restricted list Wednesday.

Masahiro Tanaka gets through 35 pitch bullpen session
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:08 pm ET) Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was able to get through a 35 pitch bullpen session Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

Tanaka said this bullpen session was "better" than his first one. He was able to throw four different pitches during the start, including his splitter. "It went well, but it was actually my first time throwing breaking balls – something other than fastballs – in the bullpen, so I felt it was a little bit rusty,” Tanaka said. The club still hopes Tanaka can pitch in the majors this season.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:05 pm ET) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was scratched from Wednesday's starting lineup due to a family emergency, the team announced.

The Cubs haven't given any indication of how much time Castro is expected to miss. He has hit .284/.333/.429 with 13 home runs and 64 RBI in 496 at-bats. Rookie Javier Baez will see his first action at shortstop Wednesday after playing 15 games at second base to open his major-league career.
