Multiple sources are reporting that San Francisco Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong may make a rehab appearance Friday at Banner Island Ballpark as the Stockton Ports host the San Jose Giants at 7:05 pm. Vogelsong was placed on the disabled list in late May for a right hand injury.

According to Ports officials, limited tickets remain for Friday’s game.

 

MARINERS SKIPPER SUFFERS STROKE: Mariners manager Eric Wedge sustained what the club called a ''very mild stroke,'' but he was released from the hospital on Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery. The 45-year-old Wedge was hospitalized Monday when he complained about light-headedness during batting practice. He missed the entire three-game series against Cleveland, but after a battery of tests was sent home from the hospital Wednesday afternoon, the Mariners said in a statement.

 

DODGERS PLACE KEMP ON DL: After a brief stint of being healthy, Matt Kemp is heading back to the disabled list for the third time this season. The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Kemp on the 15-day DL Wednesday with a sprained left ankle and activated left-hander Ted Lilly. Out of the lineup for 11 games with a sore left shoulder, Kemp came off the DL before Sunday's 9-2 win over the Washington Nationals. He went 3 for 4 with a home run, but limped off the field after sliding into home plate on a force play in the ninth inning and has not played since.

 

WRIGLEY FIELD GETS $500M UPGRADE: The Chicago Cubs, who have clung to the past the way ivy clings to Wrigley Field's outfield walls, won final approval Wednesday for a $500 million renovation project at the 99-year-old ballpark – including a massive Jumbotron like the ones towering over every other major league stadium. The team also will be able to erect a large advertising sign in right field, double the size of the cramped clubhouse, improve player training facilities in the bowels of the ballpark and build a 175-room hotel across the street.

SKYDIVER KNOCKS SHORTSTOP OUT FOR SEASON: A skydiver parachuting in before a summer league game accidentally kicked shortstop Mattingly Romanin in the face, knocking him to the ground and, it turns out, ending his season. The 20-year-old Mattingly said Wednesday he had a concussion and was trying to take the bizarre mishap in stride. Romanin and his Hannibal Cavemen teammates are part of the Prospect League, a summer wood bat league for college players with 11 teams in six states. Hannibal hosted the Terre Haute (Ind.) Rex on Saturday.
