Tigers RP Alex Wilson gets first big-league start on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:59 pm ET) The Tigers have named Alex Wilson as the starter for Wednesday's matchup with the A's. Wilson is starting for Alfredo Simon, who was placed on the bereavement list. This will be Wilson's first career start after making 56 relief appearances in his career, including 12 this season.

Left-hander Kyle Ryan was expected to make the start after being recalled from Triple-A, but it seems Ryan will not be ready in time for first pitch on Wednesday, according to MLive.com.


Reds' Raisel Iglesias to start Saturday vs. Nationals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:43 pm ET) Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias will start Saturday against the Nationals with Johnny Cueto still recovering from an elbow injury, according to MLB.com.

The rookie right-hander is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three starts.


Tigers C Alex Avila (knee) close to starting baseball activities
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:41 pm ET) Tigers catcher Alex Avila seems close to being cleared for baseball activities. Avila has been on the disabled list since May 9 with a knee injury.

Avila will see the doctor on Wednesday and get treatment on his knee, which should lead to him being able to resume baseball activities, according to MLive.com. The team has not provided an updated timetable for his return.


A's SP Sonny Gray still sore in ankle but should start Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:37 pm ET) Athletics starter Sonny Gray threw a bullpen session on Tuesday after he left his last start with an ankle injury. On Wednesday, Gray indicated that he still had some soreness in his right ankle when he threw off the mound, but he is still expected to make his next start on Friday.

Indians' Callaway: Danny Salazar should be fine for next start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:35 pm ET) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar's finger was tender Wednesday morning after sustaining a small cut near one of his fingernails Tuesday against the Rangers, pitching coach Mickey Callaway said, per MLB.com.

However, it doesn't appear the injury will keep Salazar from making his next start.

"We're going to take a day off from throwing today, get back to his bullpen [on Thursday]," Callaway said. "[We'll] probably do something like all fastballs. It really bothers him on his offspeed pitches. He really kind of yanks on that part of the finger. He should be fine for his next start."

Salazar is slated to make his next start Sunday at Seattle.


Tigers SP Justin Verlander (triceps) will make rehab start Sunday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:31 pm ET) Justin Verlander will make his first rehab start on Sunday with Triple-A Toledo, according to MLive.com. The Tigers' right-hander threw a simulated game on Tuesday and seems to have come out of it with no issues, leading to his rehab start.

Manager Brad Ausmus said Verlander would be limited to 80-85 pitches on Sunday. He wasn't sure if Verlander would need to make more than one rehab start. 

"It’s all going to depend on how the first one goes. Then we’ll make a decision," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press.

Verlander is working his way back from a triceps injury that has kept him out of action all season so far.


Indians' Francona surprised Carlos Santana (wrist) started Wed.
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:30 pm ET) Indians first baseman Carlos Santana made it into the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, despite getting hit on the left wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning Tuesday. While X-rays came back negative, manager Terry Francona was still surprised Santana was healthy enough to play.

"I was happily shocked," Francona said on Wednesday morning, per MLB.com. "I checked on him this morning ... and he said, 'I'm good to go.' I try never to be pessimistic -- I don't think that's my nature -- but I just didn't think that's how he was going to feel this morning."

Santana proved in the third inning his wrist is fine, as he hit a three-run homer off Colby Lewis. It was his sixth home run of the season.


Orioles OF Travis Snider starts in left field on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:21 pm ET) Following a three-game absence from the lineup, Orioles outfielder Travis Snider is starting in left field on Wednesday against the Astros. For the first time this season, Snider will bat in the No. 2 hole in the lineup. 

Snider has been mostly a part-time player this season, splitting time in the outfield with David Lough, Delmon Young and Steve Pearce, who is starting in right field on Wednesday. 

This season, Snider is hitting .270/.356/.371 this season with four doubles, and one home run. 


Orioles INF Ryan Flaherty activated from DL, starting Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:13 pm ET) Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty is back off the disabled list and is in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros. Flaherty has been out since May 12 with a groin strain.

On Wednesday, he is playing second base and batting eighth on Wednesday. The team has not announced a corresponding move for Flaherty's activation. 


Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (knee) still can't start on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:03 pm ET) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the A's. Iglesias will miss his fourth straight game while nursing a sore knee. The Tigers maintain he is day-to-day, but they have not indicated when they expect Iglesias to return to the lineup.

Iglesias did take batting practice and fielded groundballs on Tuesday, but he still bothered by the knee when he runs. Iglesias says he does plan to run on Wednesday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Dixon Machado gets the start at shortstop and will bat eighth on Wednesday.
