Cubs activated OF Jorge Soler from the 15-day disabled list.
Soler went just 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa, but his ankle is feeling fine and that's all the Cubs really care about. The youngster missed just over a month of action with a sprained left ankle.
Alex Rios is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.
The struggling veteran is just getting a breather. Jarrod Dyson is in right field in Rios' place.
Salvador Perez is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.
It's a rare day off for Perez. Drew Butera is filling in behind the plate.
Yan Gomes is absent from the Indians' lineup Sunday.
He's just getting a breather. Roberto Perez will be behind the plate with Gomes out.
Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.
It appears to simply be a day off. Jason Bourgeois is in center field while Hamilton rests.
Carlos Gomez (wrist) is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.
Gomez had to exit Saturday's contest after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch. X-rays came back clean and he's expected to be fine, but the outfielder is surely sore. Gerardo Parra is handling center field Sunday.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have had trade discussions with the Brewers regarding Adam Lind and Gerardo Parra.
Rosenthal notes that the talks about Parra came before former general manager Jerry Dipoto resigned and that "nothing was close" to getting done. Still, both Parra and Lind make a lot of sense for the Halos since they're in need of left field and designated hitter help. The Brewers have caught fire of late, but they still figure to be sellers at the deadline and both Lind and Parra likely will be on the move.
Yordano Ventura (hand) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
The righty didn't have any issues with his right hand during a bullpen session Saturday, but he still felt a very slight numbness in his last rehab outing so the Royals are going to play it safe. Ventura will be re-evaluated after Monday's start, as he would potentially be in line to rejoin the rotation next weekend.
