- Sonny Gray threw a complete game on Wednesday, a rarity not only in the Pacific Coast League but in minor league baseball in general, as the A's right-hander struck out six while allowing just one run, reports Ashley Marshall of MiLB.com.
- The Brewers could use some pitching help in the major leagues, and Tyler Thornburg was a potential candidate if he were pitching well this season, but his struggles continued on Wednesday as the right-hander allowed four runs in as many innings. Thornburg now has a 5.59 ERA on the season and has allowed at least three runs in three of his six starts this year, although he does have a 3.41 FIP due to an unlucky .371 BABIP.
- The International League was off on Wednesday.
- Taijuan Walker struck out seven in six innings while allowing just one run, notes Jonathan Raymond of MiLB.com. The Mariners top prospect has now allowed one run or less in four straight starts.
- Matt Barnes was dominant on Wednesday, striking out 10 in six innings in a much-needed solid outing. The Red Sox righty has been inconsistent this season has been inconsistent this season, mixing in good outings in with poor ones and twice allowing over five runs in a start and failing to get out of the fifth inning in three of his five starts on the season.
- Rafael Montero showed why he's not quite ready for a promotion yet, as the Mets right-hander allowed 10 runs (seven earned) over 6 2/3 innings. Montero had been pitching very well in his first taste of Double-A over his first five starts, leading many to call for a promotion, but the Mets appear to let him stay in Binghamton for a little while.
- Former first-rounder Tyler Anderson gave up five runs in six innings, but the Rockies lefty also struck out six in the outing.
- Cheslor Cuthbert hit a walk-off home run, the first bomb of the season for the Royals third base prospect.
- Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor collected two more hits on Wednesday and is now hitting .351/.425/.521 on the season.
- Yankees prospect Jose Campos, who came over to the team in the Michael Pineda trade, struck out seven batters in three innings of relief, but allowed four hits and two runs in the process. It was the first relief apperance for Campos, but the three-inning stint was the same as his previous four outings of the season as he comes back from an arm injury.
- Robert Stephenson got his first win of the season despite allowing four runs in five innings of work. The Reds 2011 first-rounder has struggled this season despite striking out 35 batters in 28 innings, due largely in part to a .408 BABIP. Stephenson has an FIP of 2.91, indicating that he has pitched better than his ERA would indicate.
