Miguel Sano (hamstring) is expected to need 3-4 more rehab games before being activated from the disabled list.
He's already played two, but the Twins would like him to work on his timing and pitch recognition for a bit longer. Sano is also slated to play the outfield at least once after handling third base for his first two rehab contests.
Ryan Zimmerman is absent from the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
He's one of a few Nationals regulars getting a day off, as Wilson Ramos and Danny Espinosa are also on the bench. The Nats have Clint Robinson at first base, Jose Lobaton at catcher and Stephen Drew at shortstop.
Jeurys Familia is unavailable to pitch on Sunday.
He's pitched in two straight games and worked four out of the last five days and needs a break. Addison Reed is also likely unavailable Sunday, so the Mets could use Hansel Robles or Erik Goeddel should a save opportunity arise.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that he doesn't anticipate using Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller for a third straight day Sunday.
Girardi on at least one other occasion this season said that he'd rest Chapman and then wound up using him, so we can't rule anything out. However, it appears a potential save situation Sunday could be handled by Dellin Betances, who would be going on three straight days himself.
Matt Wieters is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.
It looks to be a simple day off. Francisco Pena is catching Sunday.
Trevor Plouffe (groin) is back in the Twins' lineup Sunday.
Plouffe missed a couple games with a mild groin strain. He's at first base Sunday, as the Twins are using Joe Mauer in the designated hitter spot and again benching Byung-ho Park. Byron Buxton and Kurt Suzuki are also getting breathers, as Danny Santana and Juan Centeno are in center field and at catcher, respectively.
Ubaldo Jimenez will start on Tuesday in San Diego.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter previously had refused to commit to Jimenez getting another start even though he pitched well last week, but he's now officially done so. Jimenez holds a 6.89 ERA and 1.98 WHIP on the season and isn't guaranteed anything beyond Tuesday.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that he's not expecting Bryan Mitchell (toe) to pitch in the majors this season.
The anticipation had been that Mitchell could return from toe surgery late in the year, but evidently Girardi isn't counting on it. Mitchell has resumed playing catch and is nearing mound work.
