  • STL Starting Pitcher #44
    Kyle Gibson allowed just one run over six innings with three strikeouts against the Brewers on Saturday, but didn’t factor into the decision.
    Gibson gave up three hits, but he did walk four with 49-of-89 pitches credited as strikes. Despite the self-inflicted damage, the only run was a William Contreras double in the third inning to score Blake Perkins. Outside of that, Gibson worked around those free passes in his best start of 2024 — at least in terms of run prevention. The 36-year-old is scheduled to face the D-Backs on Wednesday; a team he allowed four runs against in his start Saturday.
  • BAL Right Fielder #25
    Anthony Santander is back in right field Wednesday for the first time since suffering a bruised knee last week.
    Santander was used as a designated hitter in his previous three starts. He’s batting cleanup today against the Cardinals.
  • BAL First Baseman #6
    Ryan Mountcastle is out of the Orioles’ lineup Wednesday for the third time in five days.
    The Orioles are DHing Adley Rutschman today, taking away Mountcastle’s spot. Mountcastle is in a 1-for-24 slump that’s dropped his OPS from .842 to .733. He’d be playing through it on practically any other team, but the stacked Orioles are treating him like a role player.
  • STL Relief Pitcher #58
    Chris Roycroft will serve as the Cardinals’ 27th man in Wednesday’s game against the Orioles.
    Roycroft was sent down Monday after allowing four runs over six innings in two weeks with the Cardinals. He’ll head back to Triple-A after the game.
  • BAL Relief Pitcher #79
    Nick Vespi has been added as the Orioles’ 27th man for Wednesday’s game against the Cardinals.
    Both teams get a 27th man for the regularly scheduled game as a result of having to finish last night’s suspended game today. Vespi, who had a 4.17 ERA in 41 innings of relief for the Orioles between 2022 and ’23, has yet to pitch in the majors this season.
  • STL Second Baseman #16
    Nolan Gorman hit a two-run homer after play resumed Wednesday as the Cardinals beat the Orioles 3-1 in Tuesday’s suspended game.
    Gorman also doubled in the Cardinals’ lone run before play was halted in a 1-1 game last night. The homer today came immediately came right after play resumed in the bottom of the sixth and made a winner of Lance Lynn, who pitched six innings of one-run ball last night. Gorman has four homers and 10 RBI in his last 11 games. His OPS has jumped from .575 to .724 during that span, and he should probably be picked up in leagues in which he was dropped.
  • STL Relief Pitcher #56
    Ryan Helsley picked up his 15th save Wednesday after play resumed in Tuesday’s suspended game versus the Orioles.
    Helsley walked Jordan Westburg with one out, but he then got a double-play ball from Collin Cowser to end the game. Helsley has converted all of his save chances since blowing one in his season debut March 30.
  • TB Starting Pitcher #44
    Rays activated RHP Ryan Pepiot from the 15-day injured list.
    Pepiot will make his return to the Rays rotation against the Red Sox tonight.
  • TB Relief Pitcher #61
    Rays designated RHP Erasmo Ramírez for assignment.
    Ramírez had a 4.50 ERA and a 9/6 K/BB in 16 innings out of the Rays pen. If he clears waivers, there’s a good chance he’ll remain in the organization, though he’ll have the right to become a free agent.
  • HOU First Baseman #79
    José Abreu is due to join Triple-A Sugar Land this weekend, according to manager Joe Espada.
    It sounds like he’ll begin playing there on Friday, with the possibility that he could be back in the majors as soon as Sunday. Abreu has gone 6-for-18 with two doubles in eight games in Rookie ball.
  • PIT Catcher #32
    The Pirates have added Grant Koch, not Henry Davis, to the taxi squad following Yasmani Grandal’s injury Tuesday.
    Davis has been fantastic offensively since being sent down, hitting .279/.456/.628 in 12 games, but the Pirates apparently don’t want to bring him back yet. If Grandal goes on the injured list, the light-hitting Koch would likely back up Joey Bart.
