by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said starting pitcher Adam Wainwright passed strength and mobility tests after leaving Tuesday's start against the Mets with a hyperextended right knee, per FOX Sports Midwest.

"He may be sore for a day or two but we'll find out more (Wednesday)," Matheny said.

Wainwright said he expects to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Pirates.

"At first you get a little scared, but as I started walking off the field I knew I hadn't done anything wrong," Wainwright told reporters. "All is good."


Jose Bautista not getting many pitches to hit
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) Given how pitchers are pitching around Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, it's amazing he has six home runs and 13 RBI 20 games into the season.

Bautista leads the major leagues in percentage of balls thrown to him at 47 percent, Sportsnet has reported. The early-season slump by cleanup hitter Edwin Encarnacion has contributed to a willingness to pitch around him. Bautista already has 25 walks, which puts him on pace for 200 for the season.

"His discipline has been off the charts because even the strikes he's taken have been marginal pitches, pitchers' pitches," said hitting coach Kevin Seitzer. "He's got to stay right there, take his walks and trust the guys behind him because if he starts expanding just to put balls in play, then he's going to struggle."

Bautista owns a .262/.467/.569 stat line.


Mike Olt to see more playing time at third base
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:24 am ET) Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday it's time to start playing Mike Olt at third base more often, per The Chicago Sun-Times.

"We’ve talked about gradually getting him into that role," Renteria said. "Do I plan on playing him [Wednesday]? Yes.

"Everything’s very calculated. So I’m going to throw him out there and let him run with it a little bit. We’re still measuring everything; we’re still trying to be kind of guarded, but he’ll be in there (Wednesday) again."

Olt is welcoming the opportunity for more playing time at third base.

"That’d be great," Olt said of getting regular playing time. "I definitely did a lot of work to get myself ready. I definitely feel I’m ready for the task and can build off the last couple games and go from there."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:19 am ET) Cubs third baseman Mike Olt continued his all-or-nothing season Tuesday, clubbing his fourth home run of the season in a 9-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Olt went 1 for 4 in the game and struck out twice, giving him eight strikeouts in the last four games. Still, he clubbed a three-run shot in the fifth inning to provide what would ultimately be the winning margin in the game.

Olt is hitting just .195, but is providing the kind of power that became his calling card in the minors. Of his eight hits in 16 games, four are home runs and five are for extra bases. He has a .195/.250/.512 line in 41 at-bats. 


Chase Headley hits second home run in big spot
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:12 am ET) Padres third baseman Chase Headley is showing some signs of life, as he ended a power drought and brought his batting average to the Mendoza line in a 2-1 win over the Brewers Tuesday.

Headley slugged his first home run in nine games Tuesday, and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. He went deep in the 12th inning to provide the winning run in the game, and finished 2 for 4 overall with a  walk and strikeout added.

Headley is hitting just .200 through 18 games with two home runs and seven RBI, but has hit safely in four of five games to raise his average 40 points.
