Carlos Gomez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

The hot-hitting outfielder will get a breather. Delino DeShields will make the start in center field and bat leadoff. Also of note, Rougned Odor has been dropped to seventh in the lineup.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

He'll take a seat against right-hander Mike Clevinger. Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and catch Tyson Ross.

Red Sox manager John Farrell has been suspended one game for an argument with umpire Bill Miller on Saturday.

He was also fined an undisclosed amount. The heated argument stemmed from a balk call which resulted in a run for the Angels. Farrell will serve the suspension on Tuesday, so he'll be back in the dugout on Wednesday.

According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves remain interested in trading for White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana or Rays right-hander Chris Archer.

It's no surprise, as the Braves were linked to both pitchers during the offseason. O'Brien hears that the club had scouts at Sonny Gray's start on Sunday, but they are more interested in landing either Quintana or Archer. The Braves aren't a contender, so they are looking for a pitcher under team control for multiple seasons. Both pitchers qualify. Quintana might be a more realistic target, as the Rays have a legitimate shot to win this year. Either way, the price tag would be substantial.

The Blue Jays are expected to call up right-handed reliever Chris Smith on Tuesday, reports Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca.

The Blue Jays have yet to confirm. Smith, 28, has posted a 3.93 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings this season with Triple-A Buffalo. The former independent league pitcher was called up by the Blue Jays last September, but didn't get into a game.

Manuel Margot (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Margot went just 3-for-20 (.150) during his minor league rehab assignment, but the most important thing is that he's over his right calf strain. The rookie outfielder has been sidelined for a little over a month.

Jae-gyun Hwang plans to use the opt-out in his contract with the Giants if he's not called up to the majors by July 1.

It's unclear if the Giants intend to do so. Signed out of the KBO over the winter, the 29-year-old Hwang is batting .287/.331/.466 with six homers, 43 RBI, and five steals through 67 games with Triple-A Sacramento. He has mostly split time between first base and third base, though he has also made a pair of starts in left field. Given where the Giants stand right now, it's worth a shot to at least see what he can do.

Pirates optioned C Jacob Stallings to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Stallings was called up last week to provide some extra depth behind the plate. He's 2-for-7 with a double and two runs scored at the major league level this season.
