Player Notes

  • On bench Tuesday
    Hamilton (side) is absent from the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Advice: Hamilton was lifted from Monday's game against the Blue Jays with left side discomfort and will be held out of Tuesday's starting nine. The severity of the injury is unclear, but a team day off Thursday should aid Hamilton's recovery, if necessary. Ceddanne Rafaela will play shortstop and bat ninth in Hamilton's place.

  • Back in lineup Tuesday
    Caballero (calf) will start at shortstop and bat sixth in Tuesday's game in Minnesota.

    Advice: Caballero had to be scratched from Sunday's lineup versus Atlanta due to left calf tightness, but he's feeling ready to play after Monday's team off day. It's his first start at shortstop since last Thursday. Rotowire.com Today, 1:50 pm
  • Taking seat against LHP
    Lopez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Houston.

    Advice: Lopez will avoid a matchup with southpaw Framber Valdez on Tuesday. Instead, Danny Mendick will bat ninth and play second base. Rotowire.com Today, 1:22 pm
  • Ha-Seong Kim draws rare day off on Tuesday night
    Ha-Seong Kim is not in the lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Phillies.

    Advice: It’s an extremely rare day off for Kim, who has started every game for San Diego since May 23. The 28-year-old is struggling a little bit over the last few weeks, batting .213 (10-for-47) with two homers and six steals over his last 15 contests. It’ll be Tyler Wade drawing a rare start at shortstop on Tuesday evening against the Phillies. Rotoworld Today, 1:14 pm
  • Getting breather
    Amador is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Amador will get the day off Tuesday after making eight consecutive starts at second base. Alan Trejo will bat ninth and play the keystone. Amador is just 3-for-29 (.103) since being called up. Rotowire.com Today, 12:55 pm
  • Called up to big leagues
    The Blue Jays recalled Martinez from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Advice: Martinez is taking the roster spot vacated by Bo Bichette (calf), who has landed on the 10-day injured list. It's the first major-league promotion for Martinez, who has slashed .260/.343/.523 with 16 home runs over 63 games this season with Buffalo. The 22-year-old can play second base, third base and shortstop, although he hasn't seen any time at the latter position this season. Martinez should see some action at second and/or third base while Bichette is out, with Isiah Kiner-Falefa likely to settle in at shortstop. Rotowire.com Today, 12:28 pm
  • Tyler Freeman out of lineup Tuesday vs. Mariners
    Tyler Freeman is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday’s tilt against the Mariners.

    Advice: It appears to just be a day off for Freeman. The Guardians instead will give a start to Daniel Schneemann in center field, and he’ll hit eighth against Bryce Miller and the Mariners in the opening game of the three-game set. Rotoworld Today, 11:54 am

  • Nearing rehab assignment
    Bae (wrist) participated in live batting practice Monday, MLB.com reports.

    Advice: Bae has also resumed defensive work. Manager Derek Shelton indicated that Bae is close to beginning a rehab assignment, meaning he should be activated from the injured list prior to the end of June, barring any setbacks. Rotowire.com Today, 7:47 am

  • Clubs ninth homer
    Schneider went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: The 25-year-old took Nick Pivetta deep in the seventh inning, but Toronto was in a 7-2 hole at that point. Schneider has been struggling in June, slashing .170/.224/.302 through 16 games, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him moved down in the order from his usual spot hitting first or second. On the season, he's batting .225 with nine homers, three steals, 31 runs and 34 RBI in 65 contests. Rotowire.com Today, 7:37 am
