  • Jason Castro exits game after HBP on knee
    Jason Castro left Monday's game versus the Orioles with a bruised right knee.

  • Jennings (knee) plays in extended spring
    Desmond Jennings (knee) had a few at-bats in an extended spring training game Monday.

    Advice: It's his first game action since he landed on the disabled list in late April with left knee bursitis. The bad news is that Rays manager Kevin Cash said Jennings "still felt something" in his knee during the game. It's unclear whether he'll continue to keep playing in extended spring or if the Rays will pump the breaks a bit. Jennings has been out since late April.

  • Wil Myers (wrist) could take BP Wednesday
    Wil Myers (wrist) could take batting practice on the field Wednesday.

    Advice: Myers took swings off a tee on Saturday with no issues and is ready to take the next step. He's been on the shelf for three weeks with tendinitis in his left wrist but appears to finally be making strides. A rehab assignment can't be far off as long as he can avoid a setback.

  • Alonso (shoulder) expected back on Tuesday
    Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Alonso has just three hits in 16 at-bats during five rehab games so far, but the important thing is that his right shoulder is feeling fine. The first baseman was off to a .333/.427/.437 start this season with the Padres before landing on the disabled list in early May.

  • Duda not playing Monday due to stiff knee
    Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday due to stiffness in his right knee.

    Advice: Duda was hit by a pitch on the knee during Sunday's game. He was able to stay in that contest but obviously is feeling the effects a day later.

  • Hechavarria (shoulder) expected back Tuesday
    Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Hechavarria missed his third straight start Monday with a bruised left shoulder, but the Marlins are just being cautious. "He could actually play [Monday]," manager Dan Jennings said. "He went through all of the pregame prep there. We're going to give him one more day just precautionary, let [Donovan] Solano stay at shortstop. Hech should be good and ready to go for sure [Tuesday]. I saw him swing. He looks good. He was letting the bat go. He'll test it now defensively, watch him throw some in pre-game. He looks like everything is pointing toward [Tuesday] making the start."

  • Carl Crawford moved to 60-day DL
    Dodgers transferred OF Carl Crawford from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the addition of David Huff. There remains no timetable for a return for Crawford, who has been out since late April with a strained right oblique and now won't be eligible to return until late June.

  • Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) still out Mon.
    Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He's now missed three straight starts with a bruised left shoulder. There's been no indication that Hechavarria's ailment is more than a day-to-day situation, but it's unclear what his chances are of being back in there Tuesday. Donovan Solano is filling in at shortstop again.
    Today, 1:11 pm
  • Jorge Soler batting cleanup for Cubs on Mon.
    Jorge Soler is batting cleanup for the Cubs on Monday night against the Marlins.

    Advice: Soler batted sixth on Saturday and Sunday. The 23-year-old outfielder is off to a sluggish start this season, but he's capable of getting it going in a hurry. Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo are batting ahead of him Monday versus Marlins right-hander Jose Urena.

  • Marlins activate then option C Rob Brantly
    White Sox activated C Rob Brantly from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Double-A Birmingham.

    Advice: Brantly is recovered from the avulsion fracture in his left thumb, but there's no place for him on the White Sox active roster. The 25-year-old catcher hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2013, when he batted just .211/.263/.265 in 67 games with the Marlins.

  • Middlebrooks swats seventh homer in victory
    Will Middlebrooks swatted his seventh home run of the season as the Padres cruised past the Pirates 7-1 on Sunday.

    Advice: His towering two-run drive to left field came off Pirates starter Jeff Locke in the third inning, increasing the Padres lead to 5-0. He would later add a sacrifice fly, finishing the evening 1-for-4 with three RBI. While he isn't hitting for a strong average or getting on base much (.238/.271/.419), he has provided punch from the bottom of the lineup with seven homers and 21 RBI.

  • Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) still out Sun.
    Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed the last two contests with a bruised left shoulder, but the ailment isn't considered serious. Donovan Solano is at shortstop again in Hechavarria's place.

  • Wil Myers (wrist) takes swings off a tee
    Wil Myers (wrist) took swings off a tee on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's swung a bat since he landed on the disabled list three weeks ago with tendinitis in his left wrist. The swings weren't at 100 percent intensity, but it was a big step for Myers nonetheless. "We'll continue to slowly progress his swings with effort and volume as we move forward," Padres manager Bud Black said. "It's a good sign that he swung and there wasn't any pain."

    Adeiny Hechavarria (shoulder) is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Saturday against the Mets.

  • Yonder Alonso moves rehab up to Triple-A
    Yonder Alonso moved his minor league rehab assignment up to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

    Advice: He played in two games at High-A Lake Elsinore, going 1-for-6 with three walks before joining El Paso where he went 0-for-3 with a pair of walks and two runs scored on Friday. He's getting closer to a return to the Padres and could be activated from the disabled list at the beginning of next week.

  • Derek Norris delivers walkoff grand slam
    Derek Norris delivered a walkoff grand slam as the Padres beat the Pirates 6-2 on Friday.

    Advice: Rob Scahill walked the first batter he faced in a 2-2 game, then threw the ball away handling a sac bunt, putting runners on second and third. An intentional walk followed to lead the bases. Scahill almost escaped from there, getting grounders from Alexi Amarista and Yangervis Solarte that both resulted in outs at home. However, Norris ended it with a big blast. It was just his fourth homer, but he has 32 RBI already.
    Friday, 11:10 pm
  • Duda hits sixth homer in last seven games
    Lucas Duda blasted a solo home run Friday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Duda, who went 1-for-4 in the loss, has now gone deep six times in his last seven games. Through 48 games, the 29-year-old owns a healthy .304/.397/.550 batting line to go along with nine home runs and 24 RBI. Suddenly he's right on pace to duplicate his power production from last season.
    Friday, 6:40 pm
  • Jason Castro absent from Friday's lineup
    Jason Castro is not in the Astros' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Hank Conger is behind the dish in Castro's place.

  • Brantly cleared for rehab assignment
    Rob Brantly has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham.

  • Middlebrooks has 5 multi-hit games in past 8
    Will Middlebrooks went 2-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Angels.

    Advice: Middlebrooks' two-run round-tripper off Garrett Richards in the fourth inning gave the Padres a 3-2 lead in an eventual 5-4 triumph. He continues to be a frustrating asset in NL-only leagues, though the third baseman has performed better of late. Middlebrooks has exactly two hits in five of his last eight games. Of course, in the other three he had zero. He's slashing .226/.260/.397 with six homers.
    Wednesday, 10:11 pm
  • Duda homers twice to lead Mets past Phillies
    Lucas Duda hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in a 3-for-4 effort Wednesday as the Mets topped the Phillies.

    Advice: Duda started the scoring in the first inning with a solo shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He victimized O'Sullivan again in the fifth with another solo blast, the last of four home runs the Mets hit against the Phillies' right-hander. Duda also had a multi-homer game on May 21, giving him five in his last six games. He has eight total on the season along with 23 RBI and a .305/.400/.539 batting line.
    Wednesday, 12:50 pm
  • Jorge Soler getting a breather Wednesday

  • Jake Marisnick sitting out on Wednesday
    Jake Marisnick is not in the Astros' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Marisnick has seen his playing time dwindle of late with his recent struggles and the emergence of Preston Tucker. Tucker is in left field Wednesday, with Colby Rasmus covering center.

  • Paredes' 3-hit night not enough as O's lose
    Jimmy Paredes went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, and a run scored, but the Orioles fell to the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Paredes accounted for three of the five hits the O's scrounged up on the evening. He doubled in the sixth and later scored on a Chris Davis sacrifice fly, giving the Orioles a temporary 1-0 lead. Paredes has been one of baseball's unexpected breakout stories thus far, batting .348/.374/.576 with six home runs, 25 RBI, and four stolen bases.

  • 'Marked improvement' with Wil Myers' wrist
    Padres manager Bud Black said that Wil Myers has experienced "marked improvement" with his left wrist after he visited specialist Dr. Lorenzo Pacelli on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's good to hear, although Myers has yet to resume swinging a bat and there's currently no timetable for him to do so. The outfielder hasn't played in two weeks because of tendinitis in his left wrist.

  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been hitting
    Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been hitting for a few days.

    Advice: Hitting hasn't been an issue, but Puig is still feeling some tightness in his left hamstring while running. He'll report to extended spring training to continue his rehab when the Dodgers begin their road trip this weekend. Obviously, fantasy owners can't get excited about getting him back until the tightness completely goes away.

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Desmond Jennings (knee) is "getting closer" to full baseball activities.

    Advice: Jennings has been running since mid-May and he played catch and took swings on Tuesday, but he hasn't gone full-bore yet with any of those activities. There's no timetable for his to return to the Rays. Jennings has been out since April 26 with left knee bursitis.

    Jake Marisnick is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

  • Wil Myers to have wrist examined Tuesday
    Wil Myers will undergo scans on Tuesday to check the healing of his left wrist.

    Advice: Myers said Monday that he's feeling better, but the Padres want to see how his tendinitis is progressing before he's cleared to do anything. The outfielder hasn't played in two weeks and it doesn't sound like he's going to be back in the near future.

  • Jake Marisnick strikes out three times
    Jake Marisnick went 0-for-4 and struck out three times Monday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Marisnick has struck out 25 times in 74 at-bats this month after whiffing just 10 times in 58 at-bats in April. He's also hitting .189 in May after coming in at .379 in April. The Astros aren't going to want him send him down, not when he's still contributing with the glove in center field, but he should be due less playing time going forward.
    May 25, 1:31 pm
  • Duda (hamstring) back in Mets' lineup Mon.
    Lucas Duda (hamstring) is back in the Mets' starting lineup on Monday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Duda tweaked his right hamstring while running to second base Saturday. It obviously wasn't a serious issue. The 29-year-old first baseman is batting .293/.385/.478 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 44 games this season. Juan Lagares (shoulder) is also back Monday.
    May 25, 7:21 am
  • Alonso (shoulder) nearing rehab assignment
    Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday.

    Advice: Padres manager Bud Black seemed pessimistic less than a week ago about Alonso's recovery from a bone bruise in his right shoulder, but the first baseman has apparently made great progress since then. He'll hit on the field on Monday. "I was able to go through my routine, I was able to hit some balls off the tee and hit some balls off front toss. Day by day, I'm increasing my load," he said. "I'm feeling good, responded well to [Friday's] work."

  • Lucas Duda (hamstring) not in Sunday's lineup
    Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday due to a tight hamstring.

    Advice: Duda tweaked the hamstring on a play at second base Saturday. It doesn't sound like more than a day-to-day concern, but the Mets will be careful. Michael Cuddyer is at first base Sunday, with John Mayberry covering left field.
    May 24, 7:44 am
  • Myers (wrist tendinitis) still not swinging
    Wil Myers (left wrist tendinitis) has not resumed swinging.

    Advice: Myers is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday but manager Bud Black said it's "highly unlikely" the team will activate him that quickly. Will Venable has played close to every day with Myers out of the lineup. Melvin Upton, who has been out all year with a foot injury, might make it back before Myers.

  • Middlebrooks starting at shortstop Saturday
    Will Middlebrooks will make his first career start at shortstop Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Middlebooks played one inning at shortstop against the Diamondbacks on May 10. With Middlebrooks occupying shortstop, Cory Spangenberg will draw the start at third base. Alexi Amarista, who has started at shortstop for 31 of San Diego's 44 games this season, will get the night off.

  • Still no timetable for Carl Crawford's return
    Carl Crawford (oblique) has been working out at the team's spring training facility in Arizona, but there remains no clear timetable for his return.

    Advice: His injured oblique is still giving him issues when exercising, so the team will continue to take things slowly as he attempts his recovery. At this point, he appears to be at least another couple of weeks away, minimum.

  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) still has tightness
    Yasiel Puig attempted to jog on Friday, but is still experiencing tightness in his left hamstring.

    Advice: Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Friday afternoon that Puig was feeling much better and that it may not be long before he returns, but it appears as though he's still dealing with the hamstring issue. He'll still need a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Dodgers, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on having him any time soon.

  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) 'feeling much better'
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is "feeling much better" and it "may not be that much longer" before he returns.

    Advice: Puig was shut down just over a week ago after having a setback with his left hamstring during his rehab assignment, but he's evidently made nice progress since then. The Dodgers have yet to reveal when the outfielder will re-start the rehab assignment, but it sounds like it could happen shortly.
