Steven Souza (elbow) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.
Souza banged his right elbow while trying to catch a home run ball during Monday's game, but fortunately X-rays came back negative and he won't have to miss any time. He's due to hit leadoff with left-hander Wade Miley on the hill for Baltimore. Souza is off to a red-hot start at the plate, batting .333/.416/.590 with four homers and 17 RBI through 21 games.
Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is back in the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Braves.
Another one of the banged-up Mets, d'Arnaud was limited to pinch-hitting duties over the weekend due to a right wrist contusion. However, he managed to avoid the disabled list and will bat eighth in his return, weather-perimitting.
Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) has returned to the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.
Cespedes was forced to miss the entire weekend series against the Nationals while nursing left hamstring soreness, but he's back in there as promised Tuesday. Of course, there's rain in the forecast and the game might not be played.
George Springer (hamstring) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.
The hope was that Springer would only have to miss one game due to his left hamstring tightness, but he apparently needs at least another day. Josh Reddick is starting in center field Tuesday, with Nori Aoki in right and Carlos Beltran in left.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "moving forward" with an investment group including Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter to purchase the team.
This confirms a report from Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg. Jackson hears that there's an "agreement in principle" for the Jeb/Jeter group to purchase the team from Jeffrey Loria, with the price tag at $1.3 billion. Bush is expected to be the control person, according to Jackson, but more than five investors are involved and Jeter is expected to have an active role. Of course, any sale will need to be approved by MLB's other owners. Loria originally purchased the Marlins for $158.5 million in 2002.
Diamondbacks prospect Victor Reyes went 3-for-4 on Monday for Double-A Jackson.
Two of the hits were doubles, and he also picked up a walk. Since being acquired from the Braves in 2015, all Reyes has done is hit. He's not a great defender, he won't steal a ton of bases and he doesn't have a lot of power. But he can hit, and that gives him a shot of becoming a regular that can help you in the average and on-base categories.
Tuesday's game between the Yankees and Red Sox has been postponed due to rain.
The forecast is a rough one in Boston, so they got this decision out of the early. It's worth noting that more rain is expected on Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday's game will be rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday July 16. Rick Porcello and Luis Severino will presumably be pushed back a day in their respective rotations.
Tigers pitching prospect Kyle Funkhouser struck out nine over six shutout innings for Low-A West Michigan.
Funkhouser did walk three, but he allowed only four hits and was in command of his stuff for the most part. Funkhouser infamously turned down $2 million from the Dodgers after the 2015 draft, and not much has gone right since. When he's at his best he will show mid-rotation stuff, but consistency has been a real issue. Here's hoping this is the start of something bigger.
