Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said in an interview Sunday that the first week of June is a realistic return date for Jurickson Profar (shoulder).
It would be on the short end of the projected 10-12 week timetable that was given when it was announced that Profar had a torn right shoulder muscle. Daniels did note that they would certainly make sure the infielder is 100 percent before he's activated, so it's just a rough timeline.
Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.
Ramirez was hit on the arm with a pitch during Saturday's game, but manager Ron Roenicke said it's just a planned day off for the veteran. Jeff Bianchi is at the hot corner Sunday.
Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras hit his third home run of the season on Saturday for Triple-A Memphis.
Taveras is hitting .283/.328/.483 for the season, which includes hits in his previous six games while striking out zero times. He is not lighting up Triple-A, but he is hitting enough to make him the first call-up in the event there is a need in St. Louis.
Kolten Wong is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.
Wong has been in there regularly versus right-handers, but manager Mike Matheny is going with Mark Ellis at second base against Stephen Strasburg. Wong should return to the lineup against Jenrry Mejia and the Mets on Monday.
Cubs infield prospect Javier Baez was activated from Triple-A Iowa's disabled list Sunday.
Baez missed a week of action with a left ankle injury, but he's fine now. Iowa is easing him back into things, though, as he's in the DH spot Sunday.
Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.
It's simply a day of rest. J.R. Murphy is catching Vidal Nuno.
Angels first base prospect C.J. Cron blasted his fourth home run of the season on Saturday for Triple-A Salt Lake.
He is hitting .324/.370/.632 through his first 17 games of the season, and has nine doubles to go with his four home runs. He has five walks and 16 strikeouts, which represent an increase in both rates. The Angels have Albert Pujols at first base and Raul Ibanez at DH, so Cron is going to have to wait until 2015 for a spot in the 1B/DH rotation to open.
Yankees optioned INF Scott Sizemore to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
He picked up four hits and drove in four runs in 13 plate appearances, but the Yankees needed to clear roster space in order to add some bullpen help. Sizemore should be back up again this summer.
