Carlos Gonzalez
Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez: Out of second game Wednesday

News: Gonzalez is out of the lineup for the second game of Colorado's double header against the Dodgers.

Gonzalez, who went 0-for-3 in the first game, will sit out for tonight's matchup against Bud Norris and the Dodgers. Gerardo Parra will start in right field and hit fifth in place of Gonzalez.

Chris Coghlan
Cubs' Chris Coghlan: Set to return Thursday
Chris Coghlan, LF, CHC
5:42 PM
News: Coghlan (ribs) is expected to come off the DL on Thursday, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

On his rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa, Coghlan has gone 8-for-17 over five games. However, It's unlikely that Coghlan will see an increase in time on the field once he comes off the DL. Coghlan's line of .165/.261/.288 simply doesn't justify greater usage and the Cubs' depth gives them plenty of more formidable options everywhere on the field.

Analysis: 

Aaron Judge
Yankees' Aaron Judge: Not in Wednesday's lineup
Aaron Judge, RF, NYY
5:02 PM
News: Judge is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals, Wallace Matthews of ESPN.com reports.

The Yankees continue to manage Judge's playing time carefully during his first exposure to the majors. Though he hit his third homer of the season Tuesday, his .196 batting average and 24 strikeouts in 58 plate appearances suggest he's somewhat overmatched against big-league pitching. In his place, Aaron Hicks will start in right field.

Analysis: 

Drew Stubbs
Orioles' Drew Stubbs: Claimed by Orioles
Drew Stubbs, CF, BAL
4:36 PM
News: Stubbs was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Wednesday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

When healthy, the Orioles have a starting outfield of Hyun Soo Kim, Adam Jones, and Mark Trumbo. While Stubbs line of .259/.343/.414 isn't enough to take a spot from any of the aforementioned players, he'll add valuable depth to the Baltimore roster. It's expected that he'll join the team Friday for their series opener against the Yankees.

Analysis: 

Ben Gamel
Mariners' Ben Gamel: Traded to Mariners
Ben Gamel, LF, NYY
4:24 PM
News: Gamel was traded to the Mariners on Wednesday in exchange for minor league righties Jio Orozco and Juan De Paula.

Gamel wasn't going to be able to find much steady playing time for the Yankees anytime soon, and while he is still likely a fourth outfielder long term, he could at least get a longer look with Seattle in the coming years. He is known for his defense and speed, but he has also hit above .300 in two straight full seasons at Triple-A. Look for the Mariners to give him a look in September, and while he won't play every day, he should compete for a spot on next year's Opening Day roster.

Analysis: 

Danny Santana
Twins' Danny Santana: Likely out for season
Danny Santana, CF, MIN
4:14 PM
News: Santana has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 shoulder sprain and will likely miss the rest of the season, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.

Santana will not require surgery on his shoulder, but his recovery timetable is 4-to-6 weeks, so he presumably will not play again in 2016. He should be back at 100 percent well in advance of spring training, when he will try to lock down a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster.

Analysis: 

Stephen Piscotty
Cardinals' Stephen Piscotty: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Stephen Piscotty, RF, STL
3:52 PM
News: Piscotty is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Brewers.

This appears to be just a standard off day for Piscotty. He has started the last 17 games and has hit five home runs over that span, pushing him to 20 on the season. The Cardinals will take the opportunity to get lefty Jeremy Hazelbaker in the lineup against Brewers righty Matt Garza.

Analysis: 

Adam Jones
Orioles' Adam Jones: May be able to play Wednesday
Adam Jones, CF, BAL
3:46 PM
News: Jones (hamstring) may be available to play Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Jones has been out since Aug. 26 dealing with a hamstring issue, but the Orioles' center fielder seems very close to returning. The club has been very cautious with Jones, so it's likely that they'll give him the night off and continue working towards their goal of having him back Friday. However, knowing that he'd be available to play is promising nonetheless.

Analysis: 

Mike Trout
Angels' Mike Trout: Has day off Wednesday
Mike Trout, CF, LAA
3:30 PM
News: Trout is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Trout has continued to dominate at the plate, as he hit .349/.486/.651 for the month of August. However, he'll have a rare night off as Rafael Ortega heads to center field. The Angels don't play Thursday, so Trout should return to his normal spot Friday when they head to Seattle to face the Mariners.

Analysis: 

Lorenzo Cain
Royals' Lorenzo Cain: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Lorenzo Cain, CF, KC
2:44 PM
News: Cain is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

It was recently reported that Cain has been playing with a wrist injury, so the Royals will give him the night off and start Paulo Orlando in right field. Kansas City has Thursday off, so consider Cain day-to-day heading into Friday's matchup against the Tigers.
