Astros' Brett Oberholtzer throws 85 pitches Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:01 pm ET) Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer (finger) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday, allowing four runs (one earned) on five hits in 4 2/3 innings while striking out five and walking none.

Oberholtzer threw 85 pitches in the outing while giving up a pair of home runs. His only major-league action of the season came on May 13, as he dealt with a lat injury early in the year and then was placed on the disabled list due to a blister on his finger.


Tigers' Yoenis Cespedes slugs three-run home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:57 pm ET) Tigers left fielder Yoenis Cespedes went 2 for 3 with a walk and a three-run home run in his team's 3-2 win over the A's on Wednesday.

Cespedes hadn't homered since May 15 before slugging his second home run of May in the fifth inning to put his team up three runs. The A's were able to pick up runs in the seventh and eighth innings but fell short in the attempted comeback. Cespedes, who has four multihit efforts in his last eight games, owns a .291/.327/.489 line with six home runs, 27 RBI and three stolen bases in 182 at-bats.


Tigers' Joakim Soria earns 15th save Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:53 pm ET) Tigers closer Joakim Soria picked up his 15th save on Wednesday, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning to slam the door on his team's 3-2 win over the A's.

Soria opened the ninth by surrendering a single and then issued a one-out walk before striking out the final two batters he faced to earn the save. He's given up at least one hit in five straight outings but has given up just one run during that stretch. Soria owns a 1.27 ERA and 17:4 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings.


Tigers' Alex Wilson tosses three innings in spot start Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:50 pm ET) Tigers relief pitcher Alex Wilson made the first start of his career on Wednesday, giving up no hits and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out one in his team's 3-2 win over the A's.

Kyle Ryan was expected to start Wednesday before Wilson was tabbed as the starter at the last minute. He acquitted himself well but is now likely due to a day off after throwing 4 2/3 innings over the last four days. Wilson owns a 1.99 ERA and 16:3 K:BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:42 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is heading back to Washington to see a specialist for his wrist injury, manager Matt Williams said per The Washington Post.

Werth, who is on the 15-day DL with the injury, is expected to rejoin the team this weekend in Cincinnati. General manager Mike Rizzo said Werth's range of motion has improved, but the doctor visit was planned. Werth has not played since May 15 and is hitting .208 with 12 RBI in 101 at-bats this season.


Juan Uribe starting, batting fifth in Braves lineup Wednesday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:40 pm ET) The newest Braves acquisition, Juan Uribe, will start at third base and bat fifth Wednesday night against his former team, the Dodgers. 

The Dodgers traded Uribe to Atlanta for Alberto Callaspo on Tuesday. 

Left fielder Johnny Gomes will hit seventh and Andrelton Simmons will bat eighth. 

The only other change from Tuesday is that A.J. Pierzynski will start at catcher for Christian Bethancourt. Pierzynski is hitting sixth. 


Athletics' Eric O'Flaherty to begin rehab assignment Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:38 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Eric O'Flaherty will pitch one inning in his rehab debut with Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

O'Flaherty, who has been sidelined since April 30 with a shoulder injury, owns an 11.57 ERA and 7:5 K:BB ratio in seven innings. It's not known how many rehab outings he'll need before returning to the major-league team.


Nationals' Doug Fister, Sammy Solis throw off flat surface Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:33 pm ET) Nationals pitcher Doug Fister and Sammy Solis were both able to throw off a flat surface on Wednesday, manager Matt Williams said per MASN Sports.

Fister, who is dealing with a strained flexor, threw for the first time since suffering the injury. Fister is 2-2 with a 4.31 ERA in 39 2/3 innings of work. Solis, who is dealing with shoulder inflammation, has not pitched since May 10 with the injury. 


Indians' Michael Bourn picking up offense at bottom of lineup
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:33 pm ET) After spending much of April as the Indians' leadoff hitter before being shifted to the bottom third of the lineup, center fielder Michael Bourn has hit .333/.404/.444 in his last 16 games.

"He has been doing a lot better," manager Terry Francona said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He's an important part of what we're doing. We didn't want to run away from him, but we also have to try to balance what we're doing and who we have on our roster. He's doing a lot better."

Bourn said he hasn't made a drastic change after being moved from the leadoff role.

"I'm just going to continue to play and continue to try to swing the bat," Bourn said. "It's not one thing. It's usually not something big. It's usually something little. When you've been playing for a while, it's something little and you've got to get adjusted to it. I just continue to play baseball. I try not to get too high and I try not to get too low. It's not easy to do, but I try my best to do that, because this is May. We've still got June, July, August and September left."

Bourn has hit .235/.314/.301 with 11 RBI, 16 runs scored and three stolen bases in 136 at-bats.


Dodgers' Chris Heisey starting in place of Andre Ethier
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Dodgers outfielder Chris Heisey is starting for Andre Ethier for Wednesday's game against the Braves. 

Ethier appears to be getting the day off. Heisey, making his fourth appearance and third start of the season, will hit seventh in the lineup. Heisey is hitting .200/.600/.200. 

With Heisey in the lineup, outfielder Alex Guerrero will hit sixth. The rest of the lineup is unchanged from Tuesday's .
