Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

After seven weeks of trying to keep Mesoraco active despite the hip injury, the Reds have finally given in and thrown him on the disabled list. He hadn't made a start behind the plate since April 11 and when he tried to squat last week, he felt renewed discomfort in his hip. Mesoraco is now considering season-ending surgery.

David Wright is headed to California to have his back examined by a specialist.

Wright was diagnosed last week with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column, and the veteran third baseman is trying to figure out a treatment plan. More should be known in the next couple of days. It's probably going to be a while before we see him return to the Mets' active roster.

Cubs shortstop prospect Javier Baez launched two homers Sunday in a win for Triple-A Iowa.

Baez had a great weekend, mashing seven hits in 13 at-bats with three homers and six RBI. The 22-year-old doesn't have enough at-bats to qualify, but if he did, his OPS (.944) would be the eighth-highest in the Pacific Coast League while his slugging percentage (.540) would be tenth-highest. Baez crushed nine homers in his first stint in the big leagues last season but struggled to hit for average (.169 in 213 at-bats).

Carlos Gonzalez has been scratched from the Rockies' lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Gonzalez was penciled in as the Rockies' No. 3 hitter for their series opener at Great American Ball Park, but he's battling some flu-like symptoms. Brandon Barnes is in right field and batting sixth and Ben Paulsen is in left field and batting cleanup. Charlie Blackmon will start in center and lead off.

Miguel Montero is not in the Cubs' lineup Tuesday.
