Mike Dunn (back) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Wednesday.
Dunn's back is feeling much better and he will throw a simulated game Monday. The left-hander has been excellent this season with a 1.17 ERA.
Noah Syndergaard will travel back to New York to undergo an MRI for a possible strained right lat.
Whether the biceps tendinitis Syndergaard dealt with this past week led to him overcompensating and leading to a new injury isn't known, but either way this is obviously not good news. The big right-hander had good velocity Sunday in his start versus the Nationals, but his command was off and he was eventually pulled in the second inning. He'll go on the disabled list even if the MRI doesn't reveal anything too serious, but obviously this has the potential to be something that keeps Syndergaard on the shelf for a while.
Avisail Garcia departed Sunday's game in Detroit with left groin tightness.
Garcia first felt tightness during Saturday's game but played through it. However, it came back Sunday and this time it was enough to force him from the game. The White Sox should offer an update on the hot-hitting outfielder after the game.
Chad Kuhl exited Sunday's start against the Marlins after being hit on the right knee with a line drive.
Kuhl threw a few practice tosses after sustaining the blow but then walked off the field with a trainer. He allowed two runs -- one earned -- over four innings before leaving. The Pirates should have more on Kuhl's status after the game.
Giants purchased the contract of RHP Bryan Morris from Triple-A Sacramento.
Morris, 30, had strung together five scoreless appearances over a couple levels in the minors. The righty will work in the middle innings.
Giants designated RHP Neil Ramirez for assignment.
Ramirez had an 18/4 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 relief innings but was pummeled for six runs a week ago in Colorado and again on Saturday at home. Bryan Morris will take his spot in the bullpen.
Jurickson Profar is likely to be optioned to Triple-A Round Rock once waiver claim Pete Kozma reports to the Rangers.
Profar is hitting .135 without an extra-base hit so far this season and isn't playing much at this point, so the Rangers might as well give him regular playing time in the minors. The former top prospect is a career .229/.309/.328 hitter over 199 games in the majors.
Rangers claimed INF Pete Kozma off waivers from the Yankees.
He'll be added to the 25-man roster once he reports, and it's possible the Rangers will send down Jurickson Profar in a corresponding move. Kozma will over a steady infield glove but next to nothing at the plate.
