Kevin Gausman (shoulder) threw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday without issue.
The next step for Gausman will be a three-inning minor league rehab start Saturday with High-A Frederick. If all continues to go smoothly, he should be an option for the Orioles around the middle of June. Though it's not exactly clear what his role will be.
Edwin Encarnacion is being bothered by leg discomfort.
There aren't any specifics available at this time. Encarnacion was limited to pinch-hitting duties in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals and is he out of the starting lineup for the nightcap. We'd expect the Blue Jays to have an update soon.
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Jorge Soler is getting his ankle checked out by a doctor.
Maddon did not rule out a 15-day disabled list stint for Soler, who landed awkwardly running to first base on Monday night. Soler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Tuesday, with Junior Lake handling right field and batting cleanup. Kris Bryant is playing left field.
Mariners activated LHP Tyler Olson from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.
Olson is recovered from his right knee injury, but there's no longer a spot for him in the Mariners' bullpen. The 25-year-old left-hander will go on serving as organizational relief depth for Seattle.
Mariners recalled LHP Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma.
Montgomery will make his major league debut Tuesday at home against the Yankees and could be up for an extended period if the outing goes well. The 25-year-old left-hander has lost his top-prospect status, but he's put up a decent 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this season at the Triple-A level. There may be some value here for deep mixed-leaguers.
Mariners optioned RHP Mayckol Guaipe to Triple-A Tacoma.
Guaipe was only in the majors for a day. The right-handed reliever could get another shot later this summer.
Scott Kazmir (shoulder) has been cleared to return to the A's rotation Friday in Boston.
Kazmir made it through a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday without issue and he said he felt "great" after a followup game of catch Tuesday. The left-hander had to make an early exit from his start last Wednesday against the Tigers after experiencing shoulder tightness, but an MRI taken last Thursday showed no major issues.
Edwin Encarnacion remains out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.
Encarnacion didn't start the first game either, though he drew a walk as a pinch-hitter. There's nothing to be concerned about here. Toronto is just having to get creative in a National League park.
