Tyson Ross (shoulder) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session on Thursday.
Ross mixed in some sliders during the session and will likely throw again on the side before progressing to batting practice. He's making progress, but his return isn't expected until after the All-Star break.
Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) is out of the Padres' lineup again Friday versus the Reds.
Jay was hit by a pitch last Sunday and is still dealing with some swelling. He will see a hand specialist upon returning to San Diego next week and the Padres haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list.
Miguel Sano (hamstring) will play third base on Friday and Saturday for Triple-A Rochester in his first two rehab games.
He'll then serve as a designated hitter on Sunday. That could be all the rehab contests Sano needs, and it's certainly notable that the Twins don't appear to intend to play him in the outfield at all at Rochester. He could handle third base for the Twins if Trevor Plouffe (groin) winds up needing a disabled list stint, and we can't rule out the possibility that the Twins are done with Sano in the outfield. There's been talk of sending Byung-ho Park to the minors, so Sano could wind up in the designated hitter spot.
Miguel Montero (knee) is out of the Cubs' lineup again Friday.
Montero is still dealing with some soreness in his right knee from a play at home plate on Wednesday. The Cubs don't want to push things, but he is available to pinch-hit. Willson Contreras will start behind the plate and bat cleanup Friday versus Miami.
Chris Capuano (elbow) will be sidelined for another 4-6 weeks after being diagnosed with a flexor strain.
Capuano has already been on the shelf for a month and he's now essentially back to square one. The southpaw has already undergone two Tommy John surgeries and will turn 38 in August, so his baseball future is looking pretty cloudy.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday that Domingo Santana (elbow) has seen little improvement and will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.
Santana has been limited to just 18 games since the beginning of May due to a shoulder and more recently an elbow issue. He's already missed two weeks in his current disabled list stint and it doesn't appear he's close to resuming baseball activities, let alone make a return. In addition to the injuries, Santana sports a pretty disappointing .234/.347/.391 batting line this season.
Jon Gray (shoulder) has been cleared to start Monday versus the Blue Jays after getting through a 14-pitch bullpen session Friday with no issues.
Gray had to be pulled from his last start because of shoulder fatigue, but it's apparently no big deal. He'll face a stiff test in going up against the tough Toronto offense at Coors Field.
Zach Putnam is mulling surgery to repair ulnar neuritis in his right elbow.
Putnam dealt with the elbow issue for a while before finally being put on the disabled list earlier this week. It's unclear whether surgery would knock him out for the season, but his loss would be a big blow to the White Sox' bullpen. Putnam boasts a 2.82 ERA and has struck out over a batter per inning since the beginning of 2014.
