Zack Cozart (illness) is not in the Reds' lineup Monday.
Cozart also sat out of Sunday's game because of an illness. Cesar Izturis will start at shortstop against the Mets.
Shin-Soo Choo is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Monday night against the Mets.
It's just a routine day of maintenance for Choo. Derrick Robinson will start in center field and bat leadoff.
A.J. Pierzynski (oblique) is expected to return to the Rangers' active roster on Tuesday.
Pierzynski played in rehab games on Sunday and Monday and reported feeling fine. The 36-year-old catcher has been out since May 5 with a strained right oblique. He was batting .263/.297/.411 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 26 games before hitting the shelf.
Brett Myers (elbow) will make his second minor league rehab start on Wednesday at Double-A Akron.
Myers threw 33 pitches last week in his first rehab start and will probably try to top 50 pitches on Wednesday. He'll make at least one more start in the minors after that before being considered for activation. The right-hander is attempting to pitch through a UCL tear.
Marlins purchased the contract of 1B/OF Jordan Brown from Triple-A New Orleans.
Brown was sporting a weak .261/.305/.336 batting line at the Triple-A level. He will not carry any fantasy value.
Marlins placed OF Matt Diaz on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with a left knee contusion.
Diaz should be ready to return to the active roster as soon as he's eligible. The 35-year-old is batting just .167/.211/.222 in 10 games this season with the Marlins.
Mets signed RHP David Aardsma to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Aardsma had been in negotiations with the Hanshin Tigers of Japan's Central League but ultimately decided to remain in the United States. The 31-year-old right-hander will try to work his way up to New York this season. He has made one appearance in the major leagues since the start of the 2010 campaign due to Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.
Lou Marson (shoulder) admitted Monday that there is no timetable for his return to the Indians' active roster.
Marson has begun throwing but is not yet performing any other baseball activities due to lingering soreness in his shoulder and neck. "It's definitely frustrating," the catcher told MLB.com. "I know what it is and kind of what I have to do. Hopefully, I can get on the field soon."
