Player News
Padres SP James Shields allows two runs in loss to Mariners
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7:02 pm ET) Padres starting pitcher James Shields  picked up his third loss of the season on Wednesday, despite a solid outing against the Mariners.

Shields threw 6 2/3 innings, allowed four hits and two earned runs before being pulled from the game. He held the Mariners scoreless through five innings, but a Robinson Cano home run in the sixth inning was his first mistake.

Shields (7-3) has a 4.14 ERA with 123 strikeouts and 35 walks in 104 1/3 innings of work this year.


Mariners SP Taijuan Walker fans seven in dominant showing
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:57 pm ET) Mariners starting pitcher Taijuan Walker was simply dominant on Wednesday against the Padres.

Walker allowed just one hit over six innings of work, while striking out seven batters and picking up his seventh win of the season. Walker didn't allow any runs and needed just 76 pitches to get through six innings.

Walker (7-6) has a 4.34 ERA with 90 strikeouts and just 26 walks in 91 1/3 innings this season.


D-Backs P Patrick Corbin could make start Saturday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:57 pm ET) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said pitcher Patrick Corbin could make his season debut this Saturday against the Rockies, according to the Arizona Republic

Corbin has been sidelined for over a year after enduring Tommy John surgery in 2013. 


Orioles OF Delmon Young designated for assignment
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:47 pm ET) The Orioles announced that outfielder Delmon Young was designated for assignment on Wednesday.

Young was struggling at the plate recently, registering just two hits over his last 19 at-bats.


Mariners to make rotation decision with Hisashi Iwakuma return
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:26 pm ET) Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma seems primed to return to the rotation after making his third minor league rehab start on Tuesday. Seattle will now have to make a decision on how Iwakuma's return will alter its rotation, per MLB.com.

Iwakuma has gone 1-0 with an 0.93 ERA in two Tacoma starts and also gave up just one run in 3 2/3 innings in an initial start with Class A Everett.

"He did OK. It was better than the last outing," manager Lloyd McClendon said of Iwakuma's start on Tuesday, when he allowed just one run with six strikeouts. "The velocity got better each outing. I know he touched 91 last night, and that's a good sign. He's moving in the right direction."

Iwakuma did suffer a blister on his throwing hand on Tuesday, but that's a common issue he regularly deals with because of the pressure he puts when he throws split-finger fastball. McClendon, though, will take that minor setback into account.

"That certainly will be part of the evaluation, and then we'll go from there," McClendon said. "I don't want anybody pitching around anything. We need him 100 percent, and hopefully he will be 100 percent."

The Mariners could potentially experiment with a six-man rotation if they can't identify an odd-man out before Iwakuma's return.


Yankees' Jacoby Ellsbury returns to lineup for second rehab game
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:11 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury will be in the lineup for his second rehab game with Class-A Tampa on Wednesday, per MLB.com.

Ellsbury was held out of Tuesday's game because he was suffering from "general fatigue" in both of his legs. He is on the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury.


Marlins SP Jarred Cosart to return to rotation Saturday
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6:06 pm ET) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart will return to the rotation on Saturday against the Cubs, the Miami Herald is reporting.

Cosart (1-3) has a 4.12 ERA with 27 strikeouts and 17 walks in 43 2/3 innings this season.


Padres' Brandon Morrow (shoulder) to throw from mound Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:02 pm ET) Padres right-hander Brandon Morrow will likely throw a bullpen session on Thursday, the first time he'll take to a mound since having his rehab assignment shut down in early June. Morrow has been on the disabled list since May 3 with a shoulder injury.

"That was frustrating," Morrow said, per MLB.com." I am pretty confident in this time that you know it's not just not sore but actually stronger. Like I said, I am feeling great, and that's all I can say. I am getting off the mound in the next couple of days, so we'll know more then. I am fully confident everything will go well with that."

Despite Morrow heading to the mound on Thursday, it is still unknown when his rehab will resume, and his return to the Padres' rotation remains unclear.

"You got to stay the course, that's the whole thing. He is a worker," interim manager Pat Murphy said. "When you are dealing with a shoulder or an elbow, all the little things that go into that, all the muscles that go into that and how it affects the rest of your body, it's the little adjustments ... it's those little things that make all the difference in the world, which is why it takes a little bit longer to get yourself right. We would love to have him back."


Giants RF Hunter Pence (wrist) will not return before All-Star Game
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:44 pm ET) Giants right fielder Hunter Pence is not close to returning from a wrist injury that has had him on the disabled list since June 12 (though he hasn't actually played since June 2). Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that Pence will be out until after the All-Star break, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Pence will likely need to make a minor-league rehab appearance before being able to return.

Expected to be a big part of the reigning World Series team, Pence has been limited to just 18 games this year due to injuries. 


Giants SP Tim Hudson to leave team to deal with family issue
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5:44 pm ET) Giants starting pitcher Tim Hudson will leave the team tonight to deal with a family situation and could potentially land on the bereavement list, per the San Jose Mercury News.

Hudson is 5-7 with a 4.68 ERA through 92 1/3 innings this season.
