Athletics optioned RHP Kendall Graveman to Triple-A Nashville.

There was some buzz surrounding Graveman following a great spring training, but he then went out an posted an 8.27 ERA and 2.02 WHIP over his first four starts. Jesse Chavez was terrific in a spot start last week and will presumably slide into Graveman's spot in the rotation, at least until Jarrod Parker (elbow) is ready.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Phillies haven't received any trade inquiries on Cole Hamels since late March.

It's not a surprise, as teams are aware that general manager Ruben Amaro isn't dropping his asking price for the left-hander. Hamels is off to a fine start this season with a 3.75 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and 23 strikeouts over 24 innings. He remains a good bet to be dealt at some point prior to the trade deadline.

Greg Holland (pectoral) will play catch on Sunday.

It will be the first time he's thrown since being diagnosed with a Grade 1 right pectoral strain. Holland is eligible to be activated from the disabled list in a week, though it's possible he'll need a little more time than that. Wade Davis will continue to serve as the Royals' closer in the meantime.

Pedro Strop (foot) is available out of the Cubs' bullpen Sunday.

He had been nursing a minor foot ailment but is fine now. Strop has been excellent so far this month, tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings with a 0.55 WHIP and 10/2 K/BB ratio.
Apr 26 - 11:44 AM

Trevor Bauer (illness) could try to play catch on Sunday.

Bauer had to be scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to food poisoning. He's currently slated to take the ball on Tuesday, but it's possible he'll be pushed back again if he's not feeling up to it yet.
Apr 26 - 11:43 AM

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day of rest for the struggling slugger. Aramis Ramirez is also getting a breather, as Gerardo Parra is in right field and Hector Gomez is at third base.

Max Scherzer (thumb) did not throw a scheduled bullpen session on Sunday.

That's after the 'pen session was pushed back a day from Saturday. Scherzer, who threw off flat ground Sunday instead, is in jeopardy of missing his next scheduled start on Tuesday due to a sore right thumb, although the righty said the thumb is improving and he's not ruling himself out yet. "I can't say that," Scherzer said when asked if he'll start Tuesday. "Because I'm literally day-to-day." Tanner Roark would be the obvious candidate for a spot start in Scherzer's place.
Apr 26 - 11:20 AM

Yadier Molina (knee) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Molina took a foul tip off his right knee during Friday's game and remains sore. He's considered day-to-day. Tony Cruz is getting another start behind the plate Sunday, while Cody Stanley has been recalled to provide depth. The Cards are also giving Matt Holliday and Jon Jay a rest Sunday, with Mark Reynolds handling left field and Peter Bourjos center.
