Tigers manager Brad Ausmus admitted Sunday that Victor Martinez (knee) is "certainly not 100 percent."

V-Mart is battling soreness in his left knee, although Ausmus revealed that the discomfort is in the top of the knee and not in the area the designated hitter had surgically-repaired. It's more of an issue when Martinez bats left-handed, but Ausmus doesn't plan to sit V-Mart against any more righties as he did on Friday. Worth noting is that Martinez is hitless in seven at-bats since he tweaked the knee on April 11.

Justin Verlander (triceps) is not expected to throw on Sunday.

The Tigers are going to slow Verlander's rehab down, but he had been expected to play catch Sunday. No further tests are planned at the moment, but the right-hander has just had trouble with fatigue in his right triceps when he throws off a mound. Consider him out indefinitely.

Alcides Escobar (knee) remained out of the Royals' lineup Sunday.

The Royals are hoping to avoid placing Escobar on the disabled list after he suffered a mild left knee strain on Friday, but it's possible he'll need a few more days. Christian Colon is again filling in at shortstop. Salvador Perez is also out of the lineup Sunday, as he's receiving his first day of rest this season. Erik Kratz is behind the dish.

Francisco Cervelli is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

He's just receiving a breather. Chris Stewart is behind the plate Sunday in Cervelli's place.

An MRI on Yunel Escobar's groin showed only inflammation.

Escobar was injured on Friday when he tweaked his groin while running out a ground ball. He'll avoid the disabled list for now, as the hope is that he can work out Sunday and return to the lineup Tuesday after Monday's off day. Danny Espinosa is at third base Sunday.

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off for Ramirez, who is off to a brutal .140/.140/.186 start at the plate. Luis Jimenez is at third base Sunday in his place.
Apr 19 - 10:42 AM

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

It's just a day of rest. Brock Holt is handling second base in Pedroia's place and is also hitting leadoff, pushing Mookie Betts to the two-spot. Ryan Hanigan is on the bench Sunday, as well, with Sandy Leon catching Rick Porcello.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Charlie Morton (hip) took a "step forward" with his 55-pitch simulated game on Friday.

Morton is healthy, but the Pirates are having him work on his mechanics following last September's left hip surgery. The righty is shortening his arm action and focusing on keeping his weight over his right leg. "The delivery is synching up to what we saw in ’13 and ’14 in some good stretches," Hurdle said. Morton will be stretched out to 90-100 pitches in a rehab assignment before return, so he's still got a while.
