Weiland is set to take the mound Wednesday to face the Brewers in Milwaukee. It'll be his first start of the season for the Dodgers after going 3-0 with a 3.60 ERA and 22:2 K:BB ratio in 20 innings with Oklahoma City.

Coulombe made his season debut with the Dodgers Tuesday, giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk in one inning of work.

Lombardozzi started the year with a .379 batting average, which currently ranks second in the International League. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 minor-league games, while batting .415 (17 for 41) over that span.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(2:10 pm ET) Reds catcher Brayan Pena was given the day off and held out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates. Pena had started each of the last four games for Cincinnati, and has been hitting fairly well recently. Over his last eight games, the veteran catcher is hitting .269 (7 for 26) with three doubles.

Tucker Barnhart made his fifth start of the year behind the dish, batting eighth for manager Bryan Price.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:03 pm ET) Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper is off to a red-hot start, launching a pair of home runs through his first two at-bats Wednesday afternoon against Miami.

Harper uncorked a solo home run to left field in the second inning off Tom Koehler. Harper's second home run was a monster two-run shot that landed in the second deck in right field, giving his club a 4-2 advantage in the third inning. He has six career multi-home run performances. He is hitting .260/.415/.531 with seven homers, 18 RBI and an MLB-best 26 walks in 28 games.

(2:00 pm ET) Rockies pitcher Chris Rusin will be the 26th man in the active roster during Wednesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks, per the Denver Post.

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander cleared to resume throwing
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:54 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander was given clearance to resume his throwing program Wednesday, the team announced.

Verlander underwent a third MRI earlier in the week on his injured triceps and was given the go ahead from his doctor to throw. Verlander has not pitched in a game yet this season after leaving his final start of spring training with triceps inflammation. 


Giants' Buster Posey, Casey McGehee out of the lineup Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:33 pm ET) Giants catcher Buster Posey and third baseman Casey McGehee are out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Padres, the team announced.

It will be just Posey's second day off of the season after starting 18 straight games for San Francisco. Andrew Susac will fill in for Posey and bat seventh. McGehee is getting a second consecutive day off to clear his head after scuffling at the plate to start the year. Matt Duffy will get his second straight start.

The Giants are currently the favorites (-138) against San Diego.


Padres C Austin Hedges makes first MLB start on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:30 pm ET) Padres top catching prospect Austin Hedges will make his first career start in Wednesday's game against the Padres. Hedges was recalled from Triple-A to make his Major League debut on Monday, and appeared as a pinch hitter that evening. 

Hedges will now make the start for Derek Norris who is getting the day off Wednesday. The two will likely be sharing time with Hedges as the season continues. Manager Bud Black insisted that Hedges will get playing time, and Wednesday seems to be an indication of that fact.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:27 pm ET) Giants center fielder Angel Pagan is back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres after being scratched from the lineup Tuesday, the team announced.

Pagan was dealing with a cut on his left middle finger, forcing him out of action for just the second time this season. He is hitting .350 with eight RBI in 103 at-bats this season.
