Denard Span was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Saturday due to a bruised right hip.
Span is still dealing with a bit of soreness from crashing into the outfield wall earlier in the week, so manager Bruce Bochy felt he could get him a day off now that Hunter Pence had returned. Span should be back in the lineup on Sunday.
Mets acquired 1B James Loney from the Padres for cash considerations.
Loney is expected to platoon at first base with Wilmer Flores. As the strong side of the platoon, he should see enough at-bats to be relevant in NL-only formats, though even at his peak he was never much of a mixed league commodity. He was hitting well at Triple-A El Paso though, slashing .342/.373/.424 with a pair of homers and 28 RBI.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday that he doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) to return on Sunday.
While he won't be ready on Sunday, Teixeira is inching close to a return and could rejoin the Bombers lineup on Monday. He has been sidelined since experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday.
Corey Knebel is scheduled to make two rehab appearances with High-A Brevard and two appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs before he returns to the Brewers bullpen.
The right-hander is expected to work in a setup role upon his return to the Brewers. He registered a 3.22 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 58/17 K/BB ratio over 50 1/3 innings with the big league club in 2015.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have acquired James Loney from the Padres.
No word yet on the return, but it isn't expected to be much. With Lucas Duda sidelined and a gaping hole offensively at first base, Loney will have the chance to step right in as the club's everyday first baseman. The 32-year-old was hitting .342/.373/.424 with two homers and 28 RBI in 158 at-bats at Triple-A El Paso.
Dodgers optioned LHP Julio Urias to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
While he struggled in his big league debut on Friday, Urias flashed the skills and talent that have made him the top pitching prospect in the game. He'll continue to bide his time at Triple-A for now, but will almost assuredly get another chance with the Dodgers later in the season.
Chase d'Arnaud was scratched from the Braves starting lineup on Saturday.
There is no injury involved, but d'Arnaud was involved in a minor car accident on the way to the ballpark on Saturday and the club decided to give him a day off after the ordeal. He should return to the lineup on Sunday.
Matt Garza (lat) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Wisconsin on Tuesday.
He'll need a couple of rehab starts before he's ready to go. Garza plans on making his season debut on or around June 14. If you're struggling for pitching depth in deeper mixed leagues, he could be worth a look as a low-cost addition.
