Madison Bumgarner (finger) threw a successful simulated game on Tuesday.

As long as he responds well to the workout, the ace left-hander should be cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento. He's expected to make around three rehab starts before joining the Giants' rotation around the middle of June. Bumgarner has been out all year with a fractured left pinkie.

Anthony Swarzak (oblique) is close to beginning a minor league rehab assignment, per manager Mickey Callaway.

Swarzak landed on the disabled list since April 1 with a strained left oblique and suffered a setback a few weeks later, but he's on the right track now. The 32-year-old setup man signed a two-year, $14 million free agent contract with the Mets this winter after posting a strong 2.33 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 91/22 K/BB ratio in 77 1/3 innings last season between the White Sox and Brewers. He should be ready to rock in about 10 days.
May 22 - 4:03 PM

Yangervis Solarte is not in the Blue Jays' starting lineup Tuesday against the Angels.

Solarte gets the night off in favor of Devon Travis, who was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday despite struggling with the bat himself. Solarte got off to a red-hot start, but he's fallen off over the past two weeks, and his line on the year is now down to .260/.327/.480 with 10 homers and 29 RBI over 45 games.
May 22 - 3:56 PM

Tyler O'Neill is starting in center field and will hit fifth against the Royals on Tuesday.

O'Neill gives Tommy Pham a night off. The 22-year-old rookie has been scorching with the bat since being recalled on Friday, and has three homers over his last three games to go along with a .583 average and six RBI in that time frame.
May 22 - 3:41 PM

Reds optioned INF/OF Rosell Herrera to Triple-A Louisville.

After being promoted by the Reds on April 26, Herrera hit just .154/.154/.154 over 13 at-bats in as many games.
May 22 - 3:31 PM

Reds recalled INF/OF Brandon Dixon from Triple-A Louisville.

Dixon, 26, takes the place of Rosell Herrera, who was optioned to Louisville on Tuesday. Assuming he gets a chance to play, Dixon will make his MLB debut with the callup, as he's spent the last fives seasons in the minors; the last three in the Cincinnati organization. He does offer some power and above-average speed, but he probably won't hit enough -- or play enough -- to be relevant from a fantasy perspective.
May 22 - 3:30 PM

Christian Villanueva is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Villanueva gets the night off, so Cory Spangenberg will instead man the hot corner for the Padres on Tuesday. The 26-year-old third baseman has been struggling with the bat as of late, but still owns a solid .876 OPS with 12 homers and 26 RBI over 40 games with San DIego in 2018.
May 22 - 3:19 PM

Rays placed 2B Joey Wendle on the paternity leave list.

Wendle will be replaced on the 25-man roster by top infield prospect Willy Adames. On the year, Wendle is hitting .288 with a homer, three stolen bases, and 11 RBI over 125 plate appearances. He should be back in three days.
