Tigers prowl: With Cleveland's loss to the Twins on Wednesday, the Tigers are within a game of the American League Central lead. Detroit can't take over first with a win on Wednesday, but they can inch to a half-game out of first with a win over Texas in Arlington on Wednesday. Lefty Phil Coke is expected to be activated from the DL in time to face right-hander Alexi Ogando, who beat the Tigers with a two-hitter through seven innings in April. Ogando has yet to lose a decision as a starter. Tigers at Rangers, 8:05 p.m. ET (Follow live)

David OrtizRetaliation time? Nobody expects A.J. Burnett to bean David Ortiz right off the bat -- but he may smoke him inside just to get his attention. It's nice to have some actual bad blood between these two teams again. For two long the rivalry has been pretty boring -- but with Joe Girardi complaining about Ortiz's bat flip on Tuesday, things could get interesting. Or at least more interesting.  Red Sox at Yankees, 7:05 p.m. ET (Follow live)

RockiesWelcome back: Everything's coming up Rockies today -- the team gets Aaron Cook back and he faces a team he's traditionally pitched well against. In his career he's 7-1 with a 2.21 ERA at Petco Park and is 14-4 against the Padres overall. They're also facing Dustin Moseley, who his pitching well this season, going 2-6 with a 3.00 ERA and has allowed three or fewer runs in 10 of his last 12 starts. However, Moseley was rocked by the Rockies on May 13, allowing six runs in four innings of a loss at Coors Field. Rockies at Padres, 6:35 p.m. ET (Follow live)
