Billy Hamilton is day-to-day with a sore groin.
Hamilton tweaked a groin muscle Saturday when he leaped awkwardly over Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams after beating out a hard grounder to second base. The young speedster looked to be in a good amount of pain and can probably be ruled out for Sunday night's series finale in St. Louis.
Royals recalled INF Orlando Calixte from Triple-A Omaha.
Calixte gives the Royals some needed shortstop depth while Alcides Escobar recovers from a knee injury. Calixte, 23, is a .242/.299/.370 career hitter in the minors.
Royals optioned OF Reymond Fuentes to Triple-A Omaha.
Fuentes was only in the majors for two games. The 24-year-old is no more than organizational outfield depth.
A's trainer Nick Paparesta said Coco Crisp could begin baseball activity on Monday.
That doesn't necessarily mean Crisp is close to a return but it's a step in the right direction. Crisp, who underwent right elbow surgery on April 3, was originally given a 6-to-8 week timetable. Sam Fuld has been manning the fort in center field during his absence. He doesn't offer much in the way of average or power but Crisp can tear up the base paths when he's healthy.
Carlos Beltran (illness) is not in the Yankees' lineup on Saturday night against the Rays.
Beltran is dealing with flu-like symptoms and might miss Sunday's game as well. The veteran outfielder has produced a weak .184/.238/.289 slash line on the young season.
Matt Holliday (back) is expected to be in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Sunday.
Holliday's back flared up on Saturday afternoon, leading to an early exit. But it's nothing serious and he should be good to go for Sunday night's series finale with the Reds. The veteran slugger is off to a hot start, hitting .364 with a team-high .476 OBP. He'll have a chance to extend his hitting streak to 11 games if he plays Sunday.
Cardinals recalled INF Dean Anna from Triple-A Memphis.
Anna failed to make the Cardinals' roster out of spring training after a rough showing in Grapefruit League play, but he is needed now for the bench with Randal Grichuk (back) heading to the disabled list. Anna can play all around the diamond defensively. He carries no fantasy relevance in a utility role.
Cardinals placed OF Randal Grichuk on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.
It sounds like the backup outfielder should be ready to return as soon as he's eligible. Grichuk, 23, is 2-for-10 with a home run and two RBI on the season.
