Greg Hardy (illness) missed Cowboys practice Wednesday.

The illness seems like nothing to be concerned over. The most important news is that Peter King believes Greg Hardy will get either two or four games removed from his 10-game domestic violence suspension. The appeal is set for Thursday and will be heard by league-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson. This is the same arbitrator that upheld the NFL's penalty for Adrian Peterson. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Mark Trumbo is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup Wednesday.

Trumbo is getting the afternoon off against Mike Foltynewicz and the Atlanta Braves. There have been a lot of rumors swirling about Trumbo's trade value but nothing substantial as of yet. The Cardinals were in the mix after losing Matt Adams for a few months and perhaps the rest of the season, a power-hitting first baseman, that's better than Mark Reynolds might be a good fit in St. Louis. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Bills DE Michael Buchanan ended last season on IR with a sports hernia. Says he feels 100-percent healthy now.

Buchanan was a seventh-round pick of the Patriots back in 2013. He has produced just two career sacks in his 18 games played. If healthy, he should produce big numbers playing alongside star defensive lineman Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Ryan Braun left the team following Tuesday's game and is undergoing another cryotherapy procedure on his right thumb. Brewers are hopeful he will be back in the lineup Sunday.

The good news is that the Brewers had this pre-planned to ensure Braun does not have any setbacks. If you are a Braun owner, definitely kep your eye on the situation. He has cooled off over the past week hitting just .194/.242/.226 over his last seven games. The hope is that he'll be ready on Friday, but Counsell isn't counting on Braun until Sunday. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Josh Hamilton is expected to be out of the lineup again Wednesday due to a hamstring issue.

And so it goes with good ol' Josh Hamilton. He plays for six-straight games and is already out with a hamstring issue. No word on the extent of the injury, but this will make two days in a row he's missed because of it. Consider him day-to-day while Delino DeShields, Jr. likely fills in. Analysis: Howard Bender

Update: Red Sox recall LHP Robbie Ross Jr. from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Ross will be used out of the bullpen as the 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader. He'll end up back down in the minors before the day is over. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tommy Milone will be recalled to start on Thursday.

With the doubleheader Wednesday, the Twins are in need of an extra starter this week, so they'll turn to the southpaw to face the Red Sox, a team that struggles against lefties to the tune of a .248 batting average and .290 wOBA. He's been pitching extremely well at Triple-A lately -- 0.76 ERA with a 47:3 K:BB over 38 1/3 innings in five starts -- and could be a nice sleeper in DFS play. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jets TE Jace Amaro tweaked his back on a pass route in Wednesday's practice.

No word on the severity of said tweak, but obviously that's not a good thing. Amaro was looking to step into a bigger role this year and the Jets would love to offer him up as a steady receiving option for whomever ends up as the team's quarterback, so keep an eye on this to make sure it's not too serious or will end up being a lingering issue. Analysis: Howard Bender

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers starting lineup Wednesday.

After going just 3-for-19 (.158) over his last four games, Braun will get a day off Wednesday. He will be available off the bench, but Shane Peterson will take over in left field while Gerardo Parra works in right. Analysis: Howard Bender

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers starting lineup Wednesday.

Ramirez is in the midst of a 1-for-17 slump over his last five games and is a career 1-for-11 against Cardinals starter John Lackey. If there was ever a time to rest his aching back, it would be now. Hector Gomez will handle the work at third Wednesday. Analysis: Howard Bender

Joe Mauer is not in the Twins starting lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's double header.

Not a big deal here as Mauer takes a set for the first game of the doubleheader. Trevor Plouffe will move across the diamond to first while Eduardo Escobar handles the work at third. Mauer will most likely be in the lineup for the second game though as, surprisingly, there is no injury reported. Analysis: Howard Bender

Percy Harvin is not at Bills practice Wednesday.

There's no word yet as to why Harvin isn't at practice Wednesday, but considering his lengthy injury history and propensity for missing time, this is nothing surprising. If there is an injury, you can expect the Bills to offer up an update sooner than later. Analysis: Howard Bender

Pablo Sandoval is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's double header.

Considering the Red Sox just got Sandoval back into their lineup after he dealt with a lingering knee issue, they're not going to push it and have him play both ends of a double-header. Look for him to be in the lineup for the second game while Brock Holt holds down the fort for the first game. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Mets activate Dillon Gee from the 15-day disabled list.

Gee will get the starting nod for Wednesday's tilt against the Padres. It's a nice favorable match-up for him given the Padres struggle, so DFS players may want to check him out. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Reds purchased the contract of Ivan De Jesus from Triple-A Louisville.

With Marlon Byrd suffering a fractured wrist, the Reds will bring up DeJesus to provide some much-needed outfield depth. He can also handle the infield as well so there's some versatility to go with it. It's too early to tell how much playing time he'll actually see, but with Byrd out until August, he could be up for a while. Analysis: Howard Bender
