Ryan Vogelsong will not throw his bullpen session Wednesday in case he's needed in an emergency.

The Giants played a 14-inning extravaganza that was highlighted by a Tim Lincecum save. With the bullpen taxed, the Giants will wit to see if Vogelsong can do his session in-game. If he's not needed, he'll probably just start throwing his usual session while the game is going on.

Brandon Belt (concussion) went back to the team hotel because he wasn't feeling well.

Well what was he doing not staying at the hotel in the first place? He's got a concussion, people. That's fine that he wants to be there with his teammates at the game, but let's be realistic people. Bed rest. That's what's needed. You've got a concussion, so you need to rest your brain and your head. If only there was a rocket scientist employed by each team to help these guys with such issues that require such brain power.

Wil Myers (wrist) has recently started light throwing.

Finally cleared for baseball activities, Myers will slowly make his way back towards a rehab assignment. He remains on-schedule to return by mid-August.

Joe Mauer (oblique) hit in the batting cage Wednesday.

While you might like the fact that he's taking some light swings in the cage, there is still no timetable for his return. The Twins aren't contending and Mauer has been an injury problem for some time now so don't expect him to be rushed back. The "I told you so" from me is going to be fierce this year. I'm laughing at every single one of you who drafted him this season with those bonehead expectations. Yeah, first base. That's gonna help him.

Gus Schlosser was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

Schlosser will simply provide a little bullpen depth for the Braves over the next day or so. There is no fantasy value to be had here and he probably won't be up long enough for you to even realize that.

Mike Olt was sent to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

Sure, 12 home runs are great, but when they come saddled with a .139 batting average, what's the point of even having them? Olt will head down to Iowa where he will play first base and DH as hot-prospect Kris Bryant remains locked in at third base. He'll be back up if he can show that he's improved his plate discipline.

Nick Tepesch was used to get one out in relief during Tuesday's game, but manager Ron Washington says he'll be fine to still make his scheduled start Friday.

It's like throwing a side session. No big deal. Tepesch will make his start Friday and a Tuesday side session will have no effect. Business as usual.

Eric Hosmer left Wednesday's game due to 'decreased grip strength in his hand'.

Hosmer missed the last two games with a hand injury and there was word that playing Wednesday might have been too soon. Obviously that's the case. Consider him day-to-day and expect to see Billy Butler at first on Thursday.

Ruben Tejada slowly gets to his feet, but he's out of this game after being hit in the head with a pitch. He'll likely go through a full battery of concussion tests. 

Tejada walked off the field under his own power but had trainers with him to help just in case. The Mets are expected to update his condition after the concussion tests. Eric Campbell entered the game and will replace him at shortstop.
