Brewers RF Ryan Braun (back) returns to lineup Wednesday
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:46 pm ET) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun, who missed consecutive games with a back injury, is back in his team's lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants. 

Braun will bat out of the third spot in the lineup.


Cubs designate RF Mike Baxter for assignment
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(12:29 pm ET) The Cubs designated right fielder Mike Baxter for assignment on Wednesday, the team announced.

Baxter was optioned to Triple-A Iowa in mid-July, after hitting just .246 with the Cubs in 57 at-bats earlier in the season.


Yankees SP Ivan Nova declares himself fine for Sunday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:22 pm ET) Yankees starter Ivan Nova provided a positive report after leaving his last start with arm fatigue. He expects to make his next start Sunday against the host White Sox.

"I'm not hurt or anything like that, so there isn't any reason to think that I'm not going to pitch," he told the New York Daily News. "...I feel good."

Nova was removed from his last start after throwing 75 pitches. Joe Girardi confirmed that he was dealing with some fatigue in his triceps area. His outing was only his sixth since returning from Tommy John surgery.


Cubs sit RF Jorge Soler on Wednesdsay
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:12 pm ET) Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler is getting a rare break Wednesday afternoon against Colorado.

Soler has started in each of the 20 games. He is on a three-game hitting streak and has seven hits in his last five games.


Report: Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw could lose Wednesday start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) Dodgers co-ace Clayton Kershaw could be scratched from his start Wednesday night against Oakland, a source has told Fox Sports MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal. He is dealing with soreness in his glute/hip area.

There has been no confirmation by the team. 

If Kershaw is indeed out, Mike Bolsinger will take his place on the mound and the left-hander will be pushed back to Friday.

Kershaw has had 13 consecutive quality starts and has not allowed a run since July 3. His ERA is at a season-low 2.51.


Dodgers snag SP Mat Latos, 1B Mike Morse from Marlins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:38 am ET) The Dodgers have acquired hot pitcher Mat Latos and first baseman Mike Morse from the Marlins for prospects that include at least one competitive balance pick, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed.

The Marlins will receive three minor leaguers, per the Miami Herald.

Latos has managed four consecutive quality starts in which he has allowed just six runs in 26 innings to lower his ERA from 5.49 to 4.48.

Morse lost his starting job to Justin Bour early in the year before losing time to injury. He has played sparingly since returning and owns a meager slash line on the year of .214/.277/.314.


Cubs yo-yo pitchers to and from Triple-A Iowa
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:23 am ET) The Cubs have made a slew of moves in the wake of their placement of reliever Neil Ramirez (abdominal) on the disabled list.

The team has recalled right-handed relievers Ben Rowen and Yoervis Medina from Triple-A Iowa and optioned starter Dallas Beeler.

Beeler certainly didn't earn his stay. He compiled an ugly 9.72 ERA in three starts.


Pirates slugger Starling Marte back in lineup Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:12 am ET) Pirates left fielder Starling Marte has returned to the lineup for the Wednesday game in Minnesota. He was out Tuesday with gastritis.

Marte returns on a seven-game hitting streak in which he is batting .436 (13-for-28).


Cubs place RP Neil Ramirez on disabled list
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:07 am ET) The Cubs have placed reliever Neil Ramirez on the disabled list with an abdominal ailment, per the Daily Herald.

Ramirez, who was unavailable to pitch Tuesday, has been getting hit hard recently. He has allowed two runs on nine hits in his last 4 2/3 innings.


Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton cleared to hit off tee
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:51 am ET) Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton continues to take baby steps in his recovery from left hamate surgery. He has been cleared to take swings off a tee, per Fox Sports.

Dan Jennings has not ruled out the possibility of Stnaton returning next week when the Marlins close out a nine-game homestand.

"His hand looks good," Jennings said. "It's healed. The scar looks well. Now he's going to start off the tee ... he'll progress at his timetable. It's good to see him making strides the right way."
