Notes:
  • Ted Lilly (shoulder) allowed six runs over six innings Wednesday in a rehab start at Triple-A Albuquerque. Lilly made it to 90 pitches and racked up five strikeouts, but he also yielded eight hits and a walk. He missed time this spring because of the flu and lingering concerns about his throwing shoulder, and the Dodgers seem likely to ask him to make at least one more rehab start. Some better results would obviously be welcome. (Rotoworld)
  • Mike Minor held the Marlins scoreless over 5 2/3 innings in the Braves’ win on Wednesday. It was the second win on the season for the 25-year-old, and he’s allowed only one run in his 13 innings of work thus far. Minor didn’t go deep on Wednesday, failing to register a quality start despite blanking Marlins hitters. He now has a 0.69 ERA and 0.85 WHIP through two outings. His next start won’t come for another week, next Wednesday against the Royals. (Rotoworld)
  • Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Mark Melancon could have been used if a save situation arose Wednesday as Jason Grilli had pitched in three consecutive games, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. That statement proved to be a moot point Wednesday since the Pirates lost 10-2, but it essentially confirms that Melancon is next in line to close for Pittsburgh should anything happen to Grilli this season. Neither Melancon nor Grilli has allowed an earned run this season. (Rotowire)
  • Rob Brantly is not in the starting lineup Wednesday. The Marlins are facing a left-handed starter in Atlanta’s Mike Minor, but Brantly already has two starts against lefties this season, so we can safely assume that his absence is just for purposes of rest. Miguel Olivo will start at catcher in his place. (Rotowire)
  • Padres outfielder Chris Denorfia extended his hitting streak to five games with his second multi-hit performance Wednesday against the Dodgers. Denorfia, who has hit safely in six of seven games, is batting .444 (8 for 18) with three doubles and three RBI in seven games. Denorfia, who has made just four starts, hit third for the first time this season Wednesday. (CBS Sports)
  • Nationals starting pitcher Dan Haren will return to the mound Thursday against the White Sox after getting hit hard in his season debut at Cincinnati Friday. Nationals pitching coach Steve McCatty believes he knows why Haren had a poor season debut. “One thing I knew going in — he had nine days off (since his previous start),” McCatty told MASNsports.com. “So he was going to be strong and command was going to struggle. He didn’t get balls to the place that he wanted to, and in that ballpark (that’s trouble). First time out, nine days off, you’re trying to do what the other (starters) did. He might’ve been pushing himself a little more to do more than he was capable of doing at that time.”” Haren will be pitching on five days’ rest heading into Thursday’s outing, but once he starts getting into a routine pitching on regular rest, McCatty feels Haren will settle into a groove. “I think he’s going to be fine,” McCatty said. “It’s just trusting himself. He’s a proven, veteran big league pitcher, so just getting out there and getting accustomed to the situation, not worried about doing more than he’s capable of doing — which is pretty good. And just kind of relax a little bit.” (CBS Sports)
