Yan Gomes is not in the Indians starting lineup on Wednesday.

Just a routine day off for Gomes, who will be replaced behind the plate by Roberto Perez. Gomes has been of no fantasy value this year, averaging .204 with three home runs and nine RBI. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Angels activated Mike Morin from the 15-day disabled list.

Morin suffered a left oblique strain on May 23, although he was suffering through an up and down season. With his rehab assignment now done, it looks like Morin will get recalled to the majors as Cam Bedrosian was optioned to Triple-A to make room on the roster. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Update: Shane Robinson was removed from Wednesday's game with a left elbow contusion.

Robinson took a Johnny Cueto pitch off the elbow and stayed in the game to run the bases but was eventually replaced by Eduardo Escobar. Robinson could miss a few games depending on the level of swelling and how it affects his range of motion. A DL stint could be on the horizon but it's more likely he will be listed as day-to-day. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Jean Segura is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Segura is just getting a day off here. Hernan Perez will start at shortstop and bat seventh against the Phillies' Aaron Harang--who has been atrocious in the past month and a half. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Josh Hamilton is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Hamilton was just activated from the DL yesterday after being sidelined with a hamstring injury on June 4. The Rangers are probably just trying to slowly get Hamilton back in a groove. Matt Joyce is in left field and is batting seventh after the club sent rookie power hitter Joey Gallo back down to Triple-A to make room for Hamilton. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Shane Robinson left Wednesday's game with an elbow injury.

Flame thrower Johnny Cueto pegged Robinson and he appeared to be in a lot of pain. He might need X-rays but Robinson's status is uncertain going forward so monitor the situation. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Sonny Gray (bacterial gastroenteritis) is still in hospital, but could be released Wednesday or Thursday.

Gray was scratched from last night's start, but his illness has gone on a little longer than expected. The club brought up Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville to start against the Rockies yesterday--he took a loss after going five innings and allowing just one earned run. They'll keep Bassitt around a bit longer in case Gray's illness drags on even longer. Gray (9-3) is the AL leader in ERA (2.09). Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies starting lineup Wednesday.

There is nothing to be worried about as Tulowitzki will get a regular scheduled day off. The Rockies will play Daniel Descalso in his place at shortstop.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Toru Murata has been optioned to Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians feels that Murata will need a little more fine tuning at the minor league level before bringing him back up with the big club. He was hit pretty good by the Orioles on Sunday and it can only benefit him to get his confidence back in the minors.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Will Middlebrooks is not in the Padres starting lineup Wednesday.

Will Middlebrooks has been battling an ankle injury since being removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. It was a freak accident when he stepped on a bat in the on-deck circle. He was able to pinch hit on Tuesday night. The Padres do not think that he'll need a disabled list stint.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Seth Smith is not in the Mariners starting lineup Wednesday.

Seth Smith sits in favor of Franklin Gutierrez in left field for the Mariners. Manager Lloyd McClendon has said he likes Gutierrez in either corner outfield position but not in center field. He batting just 2 for 6 in his time back with the ball club.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Josh Reddick has return to the Athletics lineup Wednesday.

The Athletics gave Josh Reddick the night off against the Rockies lefty Jorge De La Rosa. He will bat fifth on Wednesday against the Rockies righty Chad Bettis. Reddick is batting .286 with 11 home runs.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Junior Guerra was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte Wednesday.

Dan Jennings returns to the active roster which means Junior Guerra was the odd man out. Guerra allowed three runs over four relief innings while with the White Sox. He will head back down to Charlotte with a 3.00 ERA. Analysis: Drew Phelps
