  • Report: Angels to attend Lincecum's showcase
    Alden Gonzalez of reports that the Angels will attend Tim Lincecum's showcase on Friday in Arizona.

    Advice: The Angels are expected to be one of around 20 teams in attendance. It's worth a shot to at least take a look, as the club could use the rotation depth. C.J. Wilson (shoulder), Tyler Skaggs (elbow, shoulder), and Andrew Heaney (forearm) are all on the disabled list while Matt Shoemaker was recently demoted after posting a 9.15 ERA over five starts. 50 minutes ago

  • Drew to serve as DH Monday vs. Royals
    Stephen Drew will serve as the designated hitter Monday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Nationals manager Dusty Baker said he's going with Drew because of his success vs. Edinson Volquez in the past. That success? 4-for-11 with four singles and a walk. Baker plans to rotate the DH spot for the rest of the series, with Jayson Werth and Ryan Zimmerman also seeing time there. 54 minutes ago
  • Gomez (ribs) ramps up baseball activity
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) did some baseball activity on Monday.

    Advice: It's good news for Gomez, who will miss his third straight game Monday with soreness in his left rib cage. Astros manager A.J. Hinch is optimistic that he'll be able to return during the team's series against the Twins this week. Today, 2:37 pm
  • Beckham (hamstring) nears rehab stint
    Gordon Beckham (hamstring) did some running on Sunday.

    Advice: Gordon strained his left hamstring in mid-April, but it appears that he's moving closer to a minor league rehab assignment. The Braves demoted Jace Peterson to the minors on Monday, so there could be opportunity with the big club once he's ready to return. Today, 2:34 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Jason Heyward dealing with a sore right wrist
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that Jason Heyward is out of Monday's lineup with a sore right wrist.

    Advice: There's no indication that it's serious, but it provides more context on his struggles. The high-priced outfielder went 0-for-17 on the team's recent homestand and is batting just .211/.317/.256 overall. Today, 2:28 pm
  • Hochevar (elbow) to play catch Monday
    Luke Hochevar (elbow) will play catch Monday afternoon.

    Advice: Hochevar was unavailable Sunday due to elbow tightness, but the Royals aren't concerned. Assuming his arm feels good, there's a chance he could be ready Monday. Today, 2:00 pm
  • Mike Moustakas not in Monday's lineup
    Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: He's just getting the day off. Christian Colon will cover third base and bat eighth versus left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Today, 1:58 pm
  • Santana (back) to throw sim. game Tuesday
    Ervin Santana (back) is scheduled to throw 30 pitches in a simulated game on Tuesday.

    Advice: Santana landed on the disabled list late last month with a lower back strain, but he made it through a bullpen session on Sunday with no issues. If all goes well on Tuesday, the plan calls for him to be activated this Saturday versus the White Sox. Today, 1:53 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Ramos not in Monday's lineup
    Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals' starting lineup Monday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Ramos was activated from the bereavement list Sunday, but he's sitting for the second straight day. Jose Lobaton will catch Gio Gonzalez and bat eighth against Edinson Volquez. Today, 1:42 pm
  • Cozart (knee) not expected to miss much time
    Zack Cozart (knee) is not expected to miss much time.

    Advice: Cozart gave the Reds a bit of a scare when he was forced to exit Sunday's game against the Pirates with an injury to his surgically-repaired right knee, but he's merely dealing with some tendinitis and should be fine. He could play on Monday, but the Reds are understandably being cautious with him. Consider him day-to-day. Today, 1:11 pm
  • Homer Bailey (elbow) shut down for a few days
    Homer Bailey (elbow) said Monday that he expects to be shut down for 5-7 days.

    Advice: Bailey got roughed up in his most recent minor league rehab start last Tuesday and it was revealed on Sunday that he suffered a slight setback. It's not believed to be serious, so the Reds are hoping that a few days of rest will get him back on track. Bailey was previously expected to rejoin the Reds by mid-May, but his timetable is up in the air right now. Today, 1:03 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Braves DFA outfielder Drew Stubbs
    Braves designated OF Drew Stubbs for assignment.

    Advice: Stubbs slashed .237/.310/.316 across 42 plate appearances with the Braves. He can play all three outfield spots and still has good speed, so there should be some interest from other teams on the waiver wire. Today, 12:53 pm
    Not Active
  • Britton (ankle) expects to pitch again soon
    Zach Britton (ankle) expects to be available out of the Orioles' bullpen within the next few days.

    Advice: Britton sprained his left ankle Saturday while trying to field an Adam Eaton bunt. X-rays turned up negative and he told reporters Monday that he's already feeling much better. He should return at some point this week. Today, 11:44 am
  • Hardy has a left foot fracture, out 6-8 weeks
    J.J. Hardy has been diagnosed with a small fracture in his left foot and will be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Hardy fouled a ball off the foot in the fourth inning Sunday and a CT scan taken Monday morning revealed a broken bone. MASN's Roch Kubatko says the Orioles are expecting this to be an absence of 6-8 weeks. Manny Machado moved from third base to shortstop Sunday and Pedro Alvarez took over at the hot corner. Ryan Flaherty and Paul Janish will likely factor into the mix at those positions over the next couple of months. Chris Davis can play a little third base too. Today, 11:18 am
  • Tyler O'Neill extends hitting streak to eight
    Mariners OF prospect Tyler O'Neill homered and drove in three runs Sunday in a win for Double-A Jackson.

    Advice: He's gone deep in each of his last two games. O'Neill has hit .355 over the length of his eight-game hitting streak. The 20-year-old bopped 32 home runs in the minors last season and is well on his way to equaling that number in 2016. He ranks fifth in the Southern League in OPS (.961) and third in slugging percentage (.578). Today, 11:05 am

  • Roman Quinn reaches base four times on Sunday
    Phillies OF prospect Roman Quinn reached base four times with two hits and two walks Sunday for Double-A Reading.

    Advice: He's hit .444 (8-for-18) during his four-game hitting streak. His average has climbed from .194 to .244 in that span. None of those numbers stand out but Quinn has proven to be one of the faster players in Double-A, recording nine steals on 12 attempts in his first 21 games. The 22-year-old isn't close to cracking the big leagues yet but a promotion to Triple-A Lehigh Valley at some point wouldn't be surprising. Today, 10:50 am
    Not Active
  • Brinson stays hot with second homer of 2016
    Rangers OF prospect Lewis Brinson clubbed his second home run Sunday for Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: It came in a losing effort. Brinson had a productive weekend, collecting five hits in 13 at-bats to raise his average by 28 points (.245 to .273). He missed time with a left shoulder injury earlier this year but doesn't seem to be showing any ill effects. The former first-round pick has reduced his strikeout rate to 12.5 percent this season (nine walks in 72 plate appearances). That's well below his career mark of 27.8 percent. Today, 10:39 am

  • Giants recall Mac Williamson from AAA level
    Giants recalled OF Mac Williamson from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Williamson went hitless in a week-long stay with the Giants last month. He is not fantasy-relevant. Today, 9:58 am
  • Giants option Steven Okert back to AAA
    Giants optioned LHP Steven Okert to Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Okert allowed four earned runs in 5 2/3 innings out of the San Francisco 'pen. Mac Williamson took his place on the roster ahead of Monday's series opener in Cincinnati. Today, 9:57 am
    Not Active
  • Hamels allows four runs over five innings
    Cole Hamels allowed four earned runs over five innings Sunday in the Rangers' loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Hamels was scratched from his last turn in the Texas rotation due to soreness in his left groin and he had his worst start of the season in his return Sunday. The left-hander walked four and gave up seven hits to a struggling Anaheim offense, watching his season ERA rise from 2.52 to 3.30. Hamels should be better prepared physically for his next turn on the road against the Marlins. Today, 5:46 am
