Jed Lowrie (thumb) has progressed to swinging a fungo bat.
Lowrie had been swinging a wiffle ball bat. The infielder is two months removed from surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament and remains a few weeks away from a return.
Alcides Escobar (finger) was a late scratch from the Royals' lineup Monday.
Escobar had to be pulled from Sunday's game because of a split nail on his right index finger. He admitted prior to Monday's game that he's having some pain when he throws and the Royals have decided to play it safe and scratch him. Consider Escobar day-to-day.
Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Monday.
He was cleared for game action after working out with the Yankees over the weekend with no issues. Ellsbury will be used in the designated hitter spot for Tampa on Monday and is slated for 3-4 plate appearances. The Yankees expect him to need only a few rehab games, so Ellsbury could be activated from the disabled list before the end of the week.
Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.
Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away.
Mike Morin (oblique) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Morin is done with his rehab assignment, but he pitched on Sunday so the Angels will give him a day or two of rest before activating him. He's missed the last month with a strained left oblique.
Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Monday.
It's just a day off. John Ryan Murphy is behind the plate while McCann rests.
Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to return to the lineup until at least Thursday.
Hosmer is nursing a sprain of his left ring finger. He had to be pinch-hit for on Sunday due to the ailment and will not play in the series versus the Astros that runs through Wednesday. The disabled list doesn't appear to be under consideration at this point. Kendrys Morales will handle first base until Hosmer is ready.
Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis said it was "borderline obvious" that Eduardo Rodriguez was tipping his pitches when out of the stretch versus the Orioles last Thursday.
"He'd been so good out of the windup," Willis said. "Going back and looking at the pitches he executed from the stretch, they were still quality pitches. It's safe to say that there's a good likelihood that could have had something to do with it." Willis understandably declined to reveal details, but the conclusion makes sense given how dominant Rodriguez has been for much of his time with the Red Sox. He allowed six runs -- all coming in the fourth inning -- against the O's. Assuming Rodriguez has the issue fixed, it bodes well for him going forward. The lefty does have a tough matchup against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
