Matt Adams (back) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.
Adams didn't start the last two games due to a back issue, although he delivered a pinch-hit, two-run double Saturday. He's batting .393/.443/.696 with four homers and 17 RBI this month.
Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that Tim Lincecum is expected to make his debut with the Angels on June 12.
Lincecum threw approximately 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Saturday and his next appearance will be with Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. He'll make one additional start for Salt Lake on June 7 before joining the Halos' rotation. "Everything felt pretty good," Lincecum said of his appearance in extended spring. "What I asked for and what the Angels are giving me is just time to move along at my own pace and figure out things that I need to."
Carlos Beltran (back) is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.
Beltran had to depart Saturday's game with a minor back injury, although it doesn't appear to be anything that will keep him out more than a day or two. Aaron Hicks is in right field for the Yanks. The club also had Ronald Torreyes at third base in place of Chase Headley.
Joba Chamberlain (intercostal) will throw a bullpen session Monday.
Chamberlain has missed the last week of action with a strained left intercostal muscle. It sounds like he could be ready to return from the disabled list when first eligible or close to it.
Aledmys Diaz is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.
He's simply getting a day off. The Cards are also resting Yadier Molina, as they have Greg Garcia at shortstop and Eric Fryer behind the plate.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe hears that the Rays would listen to trade offers for Matt Moore "in the type of deal that would bring back a major league player and a good minor league piece."
Cafardo was told that the Rays aren't anxious to deal from their rotation depth for a hitter but will consider it for the aforementioned package. Moore has been inconsistent this season, posting a 5.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. He remains an intriguing guy, though, and his contract is appealing with three club options totaling $26.5 million the next three years.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Hector Santiago's name "has popped up as possible trade bait" if the Angels become sellers.
Santiago has been up and down this season, but he's affordable at $5 million and is under team control through 2017. The left-hander has put up a 4.58 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 43/21 K/BB ratio over 55 innings this season.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe was told by a National League scout that Ryan Braun is "the hot name out there" on the trade market.
Braun is in the first year of a five-year, $105 million extension, but that no longer looks a deal-killer given that he's batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs this season. The scout told Cafardo that he thought the Astros, Cardinals, Red Sox, Phillies, Mets, Giants, and White Sox were potential landing spots for Braun.
