Tyler Chatwood (back) threw all his pitches during Sunday's bullpen session.

He'll throw another on Monday in hopes of beginning a rehab assignment on Thursday. Chatwood seems to be making solid progress in his recovery from a strained lower back. He's been a borderline All-Star this year with eight wins and a 3.15 ERA in 14 starts.

D.J. LeMahieu left Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with a bruised left knee.

He came out in the sixth inning after going 0-for-1 with a pair of walks. LeMaheiu landed awkwardly on his knee after diving for a single by Paul Goldschmidt. He'll have an MRI on Monday. Daniel Descalso replaced LeMahieu at second base and will probably start there during his absence. LeMahieu's .327 average is tied for third-best in the National League.

Gerrit Cole (triceps) threw off a mound on Sunday for the first time since going on the disabled list.

Pitching coach Ray Searage said Cole was "very, very good" and actually had to reel him in a bit so he wouldn't re-injure himself. The right-hander threw 15 fastballs while emphasizing timing and a consistent delivery. He's expected to throw two more bullpen sessions during the Pirates' upcoming road trip. After that Cole will be reevaluated in hopes of beginning a rehab assignment. There's no timetable for his return.

Ross Stripling will make an appearance for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

He'll pitch in relief of Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is making his fourth rehab start. Stripling has spent the past month at the team's spring training facility in Arizona in an effort to limit his innings. This is Stripling's first full season since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014. He should be back with the Dodgers at some point this year.

Adrian Gonzalez will sit for the second straight game Monday against the Pirates.

Scott Van Slyke got the nod at first base Sunday with Gonzalez appearing as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and will start there again on Monday. Gonzalez has had a hard time this month (.181 with one homer in 83 at-bats) and manager Dave Roberts thinks defensive shifts could be to blame. "If you see the three infielders on the right side of the infield and you’re not getting hits, logic says that if I can put the ball on the ground the other way, I can get a hit," said Roberts. "It kind of plays into the psyche of the defense." Gonzalez's .262 average this year is his lowest since 2005 when he hit .227 in 43 games for Texas.

Corey Dickerson (thumb) missed Sunday's game with a sore left thumb.

Dickerson won't be in the lineup Monday against Boston but he's hoping to return on Tuesday. The 27-year-old has struggled in his first year away from Coors Field, hitting just .209 with 13 HR and 34 RBI. Evan Longoria filled in as the DH Sunday against Baltimore. The Rays have sunk to the bottom of the AL East by losing 11 straight.

Steven Souza (hip) will take batting practice on Monday.

Souza has been limited to hitting in a cage so far but he'll be on the field for Monday's BP session at Tropicana Field. He should be close to beginning a rehab assignment. Souza received a cortisone shot for a strained hip about a week and a half ago. He'll be back before the All-Star break.

Red Sox manager John Farrell says Xander Bogaerts is tired and "needs a day."

Bogaerts' bat hasn't slowed down yet—his batting average is second in the American League behind Jose Altuve—but his defense has deteriorated over the past week with three errors in his last four games. Xander hasn't sat since April 23 and is due for a breather. Sitting Wednesday against the Rays is the most likely scenario with the Red Sox off on Thursday. That would give Xander a couple days to catch his breath.
