Starling Castro is not in the Cubs starting lineup on Wednesday.
Castro was said to be heading for an MRI Wednesday after injuring his ankle during Tuesday's game. The x-rays came back negative but the club is doing a full work-up on him to ensure there is no ligament damage. Javier Baez is playing shortstop Wednesday.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
