Andre Ethier (leg) still hasn't been cleared to begin baseball-related activities.
Ethier was given a 10-14 week recovery timetable when he fractured his right tibia in March, but that can be trashed now. The veteran outfielder would have to hustle to make it back before the All-Star break.
Steve Pearce (elbow) is back in the Rays' starting lineup on Tuesday night.
He'll start at second base and bat cleanup versus Royals right-hander Dillon Gee. Pearce made an early exit Monday with elbow discomfort, but he told reporters Tuesday that it's nothing more than inflammation.
Angels optioned INF Kaleb Cowart to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Cowart is 1-for-6 with two strikeouts this season at the major league level. Jefry Marte is taking his spot.
Reds placed RHP Caleb Cotham on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Cotham got off to a great start this season, but he had been struggling since late April and holds a 7.40 ERA for the year. It's unclear how long he might be out.
Dustin Ackley will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Ackley suffered the torn labrum (and a shoulder dislocation) on a slide Sunday against the Rays. He'll finish up 2016 with a .148 batting average and .390 OPS in 28 games. The 28-year-old is a definite non-tender candidate.
Angels recalled INF Jefry Marte from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Marte will start at third base and bat fifth for the Angels on Tuesday night with Yunel Escobar (wrist) still sidelined. Marte has a bit of pop, but he's not worth consideration in standard fantasy leagues.
Yunel Escobar (wrist) remains out Tuesday.
Escobar bruised his right wrist Sunday while diving for a ball and hasn't played since. He is still considered day-to-day. Jefry Marte will start at third base and bat fifth Tuesday night against the Tigers.
Stephen Piscotty (illness) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night.
Piscotty missed Monday's series opener at Milwaukee Park with food poisoning. He is starting in right field and batting cleanup in his return to action Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta.
