Daniel Mengden will be recalled to start Monday in Cleveland.

He's taking Kendall Graveman's (shoulder) spot in the A's rotation. Mengden got a late start to the season after fracturing his foot but has posted a 2.21 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio over 20 1/3 innings at Triple-A Nashville. It's not an easy first matchup, but Mengden is worth a look in AL-only formats due to his strikeout potential.

Kendall Graveman (shoulder) will be placed on the disabled list prior to Monday's game in Cleveland.

It's been the assumption since he was scratched from Friday's start with more shoulder soreness. Graveman was on the DL last month with shoulder issues, as well, and his stay figures to be longer this time around. Daniel Mengden will replace him in the A's rotation.

Avisail Garcia is absent from the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a breather after starting both games of Saturday's doubleheader. Willy Garcia is in right field.

Francisco Lindor is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the star shortstop. Erik Gonzalez is filling in.

Miguel Sano is absent from the Twins' lineup again Sunday.

Manager Paul Molitor is giving the slumping Sano a second straight day off in hopes that it will "take mental stress off him for a couple of days." Eduardo Escobar is again at third base.

Paul Goldschmidt is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a rare day off for the slugger. Yasmany Tomas is also sitting out, as the D'Backs have Daniel Descalso at first base and Chris Herrmann in left field.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Danny Salazar will available out of the bullpen as soon as Wednesday or Thursday.

The skipper left open the possibility that Salazar could get a start at some point during the team's road trip that begins on Friday, but the talented-but-frustrating righty is headed for relief duty for now. That means Mike Clevinger and Josh Tomlin will keep their rotation spots with Corey Kluber (back) returning this week. Salazar ranks fourth in baseball with a 30.9 percent strikeout percentage, but he's also fourth in walk percentage at 11.9 percent. Additionally, he's served up 11 home runs and his 5.50 ERA ranks 83rd out of 93 qualifiers.

Pablo Sandoval (knee) will remain on his rehab assignment for at least another three days.

Sandoval is hitting just .143/.217/.238 so far in six games with Triple-A Pawtucket, so the Red Sox understandably want him to get his swing in order first before they activate him. Deven Marrero has been getting most of the starts at third base of late.

    Obviously a beast thus far in 2017, but he hasn't pitched in so long. Seems odd that they wouldn't wanna get him ...

    What do people think of Danny? He paid off big in 2015 but obviously did not take a step forward last year like many ...

    He recently stated that he wants to steal 40 bags. I hope so, I love watching him play in person.

    Looking solid so far today and has been pretty lights out coming out of the pen.  Any chance he sticks in the rotation...
