Neil Walker is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.
It appears that he's just getting a breather. Josh Harrison is at second base in Walker's place Sunday, with Jung Ho Kang covering third.
Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
It's just a routine day off. Jose Lobaton is at catcher Sunday in Ramos' place.
Denard Span (abdomen) is back in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
Span missed the previous two contests after being lifted from Thursday's game when he felt soreness in the area where he had core muscle surgery. It's doubtful that he's 100 percent, but it appears the outfielder will gut it out.
Kurt Suzuki is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.
It's just a day off. Chris Herrmann is at catcher Sunday in Suzuki's place.
Aramis Ramirez (hamstring) is back in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.
Ramirez missed a couple games with a sore hamstring, but he's ready to roll now. The third baseman has struggled overall this season but has been heating up of late, sporting a .375/.423/.708 batting line with a couple homers over his last eight games.
Lorenzo Cain will begin serving a two-game suspension on Sunday after dropping his appeal.
It's a little surprising that he'd drop it now and miss a game versus the division-rival Tigers, but obviously the Royals determined it was best to get it out of the way now. Cain will return to action on Wednesday against the Indians.
Greg Holland (pectoral) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.
Holland got through a simulated game on Saturday with no issues. As long as he bounces back OK, he'll resume his closing duties on Tuesday, pushing Wade Davis back to a setup role. "I felt really good," Holland said. "It was exciting. I was able to execute most of my pitches. With that layoff, without really getting off the mound and facing hitters, it was very encouraging."
Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals on Sunday versus the Tigers.
Jason Vargas had been listed, but the club evidently decided to make a switch. Vargas will now get the ball on Tuesday against the Indians instead.
