by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Wheeler (9-9) has been on a roll since late June, surrendering three earned runs or less in each of his last 11 outings (and two earned runs or less 10 times during that stretch). He surrendered a leadoff home run in the top of the first inning, his only home run allowed in the last three starts. Wheeler owns a 3.44 ERA and 155:68 K:BB ratio in 159 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Marlins Monday.

Teheran (13-9) has delivered three straight quality starts, picking up a win in each. His only damage Wednesday came on a second inning solo home run. Teheran owns a 2.90 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 160:43 K:BB ratio in 189 innings. He's scheduled to square off with Phillies Monday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:57 pm ET) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Orioles. 

Smyly allowed one run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked one during the start. The Orioles picked up their only run in the second inning on a Chris Davis solo shot. Following that at-bat, Smyly retired the next 12 Orioles. His streak was broken by a two-out single in the sixth inning. Smyly threw 87 pitches during the appearance. 

With the win, Smyly improved to 9-10. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.


Kevin Gausman goes four innings Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:56 pm ET) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman lasted four innings Wednesday against the Rays.

Gausman allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits over four innings. He struck out four and did not issue any walks during the outing. Gausman was tagged early by the Rays. He gave up a double against the second batter he faced. With a runner on second, Matt Joyce reached on an error, causing the run to come home. Three straight singles managed to plate Joyce and load the bases. After a mound visit, Gausman escaped the inning. An error also hurt Gausman in the second inning. A throwing error put the leadoff man on base. That run would come around to score on a sac fly later in the inning.

With the loss, Gausman dropped to 7-6. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start.


Joe Kelly picks up no decision despite strong start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:51 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Kelly allowed one run on three hits over six innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Toronto was able to get to Kelly in the first inning. With two outs in the bottom of the first inning, Jose Bautista belted his 26th home run of the year. Kelly was able to settle in at that point. While he put two men on in the second inning, Kelly was able to work around it, keeping the Blue Jays off the board. He wasn’t really threatened by Toronto over the rest of his start.

The Red Sox mounted a comeback in the sixth inning, putting Kelly in line for the win. He improved to 3-3. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start. 


Marcus Stroman wins one Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9:50 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman turned in an excellent start Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Stroman allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits over 7 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Stroman was fantastic early, tossing five scoreless frames to begin the game. He didn’t give up his first hit until the fourth inning, when David Ortiz managed to knock a single. Stroman did manage to get himself in trouble in the sixth inning. With one out, David Ross managed to reach on a fielding error. Stroman lost his composure briefly, giving up three straight singles to tie the game. He then threw a wild pitch, which scored another run. 

The Blue Jays were able to mount a comeback in the seventh, putting Stroman in position for the win. He improved to 8-5. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start. 


Homer Bailey not cleared to throw after MRI
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:13 pm ET) The Reds have not cleared pitcher Homer Bailey to resume throwing after learning the results of a recent MRI Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

"Unfortunately, it's not healing the way we thought it would," head trainer Paul Lessard said. "He's unfortunately very frustrated, [but] I have to think about his arm for the future as well, not just the next four weeks. We're trying to figure out what's the best thing for him."

Bailey has been sidelined since Aug. 8 with a strained flexor mass tendon. He could have a second PRP injection to help his healing, though that would delay his throwing scheduled by another week.


Joey Votto begins fielding ground balls
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:10 pm ET) Reds first baseman Joey Votto added fielding ground balls to his baseball activities Wednesday, MLB.com reports. He's eligible to come off the disabled list Sept. 4 but may have trouble being ready to go on a rehab assignment before the end of the minor-league season.

"I'd hate to say there's no chance, but I think because we're initiating baby steps that ... I don't know if he'll be ready by Sept. 4 or not. I have no idea. I really don't," manager Bryan Price said. "It's been a real gradual recovery, and it's an injury that needs -- more than anything, beyond strengthening and therapy -- it needs time to recover. ... We just haven't been able to force the recovery faster. There's just no quick fix to this quad problem to where he can play on it with the stability that's needed."

Votto remains without a timetable to rejoin the Reds.


Vic Black dealing with bone spurs on neck
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:52 pm ET) Mets pitcher Vic Black is dealing with irritation caused by bone spurs growing on vertabrae in his neck, MLB.com reports.

"I've just got some stiffness that came up in Oakland and I'm dealing with it right now," Black said. "As it pertains with getting back in a game, I think it's day-to-day. I've got today off and we heated it up and got some medication going, and we'll hopefully knock it out real quick so it doesn't linger."

Black has been dealing with neck pain for the better part of a week and underwent an MRI Wednesday.


Josh Edgin dealing with bone spurs
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:06 pm ET) Mets pitcher Josh Edgin is suffering from bone spurs in his left elbow, The Record reports. Edgin is questionable to pitch Wednesday after missing Tuesday's game with the elbow issue.

"There’s more bone spurs stuff than it is any other structural damage," manager Terry Collins said. "He’s fine otherwise I wouldn’t be pitching him. To quiet it down as we always know and it’s ligaments running across that bone spur flares up, so we got to quiet it down."
