Mariners 2B Robinson Cano gets first day of rest on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:11 pm ET) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is out of the lineup for Thursday's series-opener against the Indians. Cano had started every game for the Mariners this season, but he's been mired in a bit of a funk lately.

Pirates SS Jordy Mercer benched for battle against Padres


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer has shown signs of emerging from a slump that had extended from the second week of the season, but he will not get a chance to give further proof Thursday night against the host Padres. He is out of the lineup.

Mercer ended his modest hit streak at three with an 0-for-3 performance Wednesday. He had played in four straight games and was on a 4-for-8 resurgence after sitting in six of his previous seven.


Agent Scott Boras in favor of Mets going to six-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:41 pm ET) The reaction to the news that the Mets are going to a six-man rotation hasn't exactly been met with a welcoming response by the starters impacted by the news.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said Wednesday it "was tough to convince" the starting pitchers of the team's plans, and Dillon Gee -- who is going to be the sixth man once he is activated off the disabled list -- didn't sound thrilled following his final rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton.

"It's fine. Whatever," Gee said of the six-man rotation, per the Press & Sun-Bulletin. "I mean, I'm pitching. That's the main thing I'm happy about so hopefully I'll do well and we'll go from there. It's probably going to be an adjustment for all of us, and something we're not really used to."

Well, one person who is backing the team's decision is agent Scott Boras, who represents starting pitcher Matt Harvey. The right-hander is in his first season back from Tommy John surgery.

"On a scenario where we're working on a long-term view of both Matt's interest and the Mets' interests, I'm glad the Mets are thinking of ways to surround Matt with a program when they can keep his innings in a very, very manageable way," Boras said, per NJ.com. "We know that pitchers after Tommy John, when they've had 160, 170 innings we know they've come back very effectively.

"Certainly with (Stephen) Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, we've seen that program work effectively for those pitchers. I think that would be certainly a very prudent plan to look at for Matt Harvey as well."


White Sox C Rob Brantly (thumb) sent on rehab assignment


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:33 pm ET) White Sox catcher Rob Brantly was sent on a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham, according to ESPN.com. Brantly has been on the disabled list all season after suffering a fractured thumb in spring training. 

The team has not provided a timetable for his recovery, nor have they indicated what his role will be once he has been cleared to return.


Padres OFs Matt Kemp, Justin Upton flip-flopped in lineup again


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:30 pm ET) Either the lineup switch involving Padres sluggers Matt Kemp and Justin Upton is over, or Bud Black is still experimenting.

Either way, the former is back in the three hole and the latter has returned to the cleanup spot for the Thursday night game against Pittsburgh.

Kemp seemed to take to the fourth spot in those two games. He slammed three hits and racked up four RBI - equaling his total from the previous 18 games.

Upton also managed three hits, but then he's been mashing all season. He boasts a .293/.354/.552 slash line with 12 home runs and 36 RBI.


Dodgers prospect Corey Seager goes 6 for 6 in Triple-A Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:24 pm ET) After getting off to a rather slow start, Dodgers prospect Corey Seager has been absolutely on fire over the last couple of weeks at Triple-A. Seager, who was promoted to Oklahoma on May 1, was hitting .339 (20 for 59) with two doubles, two home runs and five RBI over his last 14 games, entering play on Thursday. He had just seven hits in 37 at-bats in his first 10 games at Triple-A.

And he continued his hot streak on Thursday against the Salt Lake City Bees. The 21-year-old prospect went 6 for 6 with a home run, two doubles, and six RBI as the Triple-A Dodgers were victorious. In the four game series against the Bees, Seager was 13 for 19 with three homers and 10 RBI. 

Seager is the fifth-best prospect in the game according to Baseball America, and was the team's first-round draft pick (18th overall) in 2012.
