Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

Hamilton is starting in left field and batting fifth Monday in his first game for the Rangers since the 2012 American League Wild Card round. The 34-year-old batted .364/.391/.545 with five doubles, one home run, six RBI, and nine runs scored on his 12-game minor league rehab assignment, and he's a good bet for high-level fantasy production back with Texas. Get him active in all standard fantasy leagues.

Brett Oberholtzer (blister) is expected to make a rehab start late this week at Triple-A Fresno.

Lance McCullers has been really good, so the Astros might ask Oberholtzer to make multiple rehab starts and then they could put him in the bullpen when he's deemed healthy. The left-hander has been on the disabled list since May 14 with a blister on his pitching hand.

Nationals pitching prospect Paolo Espino looked sharp in Sunday's win for Triple-A Syracuse, allowing just four hits over seven shutout innings.

Espino began the year with Double-A Harrisburg but was promoted to Syracuse when Taylor Jordan got called up to Washington. The 28-year-old helped his own cause Sunday by bashing a three-run homer. Espino, who was winless in his previous eight outings, has now thrown over 1,000 innings in his minor league career.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' starting lineup on Monday afternoon versus the Rangers.

Gomes went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his first game back from the disabled list Sunday. He had missed six weeks with an MCL sprain in his right knee. Roberto Perez is at catcher Monday versus Rangers righty Phil Klein.
May 25 - 12:48 PM

Twins pitching prospect Aaron Slegers recorded his first career shutout Sunday for High-A Fort Myers.

Slegers finished with a career-high nine strikeouts. The 6'10" workhorse has pitched seven innings or more in three of his last five starts, going 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA over that stretch. Slegers has limited opponents to a .204 average with 18 strikeouts in 26 innings this month.

Jose Iglesias (knee) is not in the Tigers' starting lineup Monday afternoon in Oakland.

Dixon Machado will get the nod at shortstop and bat ninth. Iglesias injured his knee Saturday when he collided with Chris Carter of the Astros. An MRI ruled out any structural damage, but he has a bad bruise.
May 25 - 12:36 PM

Miguel Cabrera is not in the Tigers' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the A's.

Hernan Perez will start at first base and J.D. Martinez will start at DH in the opener at O.co Coliseum. It's just a day of maintenance for Cabrera, who is batting .344/.446/.613 with 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 45 games.

Reds activated LHP Manny Parra from the 15-day disabled list.
