Matt Kemp is not in the Braves' lineup Sunday.

It's a scheduled day off. Matt Adams will cover left field.
Aug 20 - 1:15 PM

Robert Murray of FanRagSports.com was told by a Blue Jays source that the club is "open" to a contract extension for Marco Estrada.

A new deal might not happen until the offseason, but it sounds like Estrada remaining in Toronto is a pretty decent possibility. The righty was claimed on revocable waivers by the Yankees, according to Murray, but the move was made to block another team from getting him and that deadline has passed, so Estrada is staying put. It's been an up-and-down season for the 34-year-old, as he holds a 5.09 ERA but has also struck out over a batter per inning.

Brian McCann (knee) is "almost a certainty" to be activated from the disabled list Thursday, according to Astros manager A.J. Hinch.

It's the first day the catcher is eligible to be activated. Evan Gattis (concussion) looks to be in line for a return by the end of the week, as well, so the Astros should have their top two catchers back in the fold soon.
Aug 20 - 12:59 PM

Lance McCullers (back) threw a three-inning, 45-pitch simulated game Sunday.

McCullers could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment this week. The Astros have yet to decide how many rehab starts the right-hander will require, but it will be at least a couple. McCullers has been on the shelf since late July with a back injury.
Aug 20 - 12:56 PM

Evan Gattis (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday.

Gattis will catch 6-7 innings Tuesday, serve as a designated hitter Wednesday and then catch again Thursday. Assuming that all goes well, he would seem likely to be activated next weekend. Gattis has been out for most of August with post-concussion symptoms.
Aug 20 - 12:51 PM

Carlos Correa (thumb) will take batting practice on the field Tuesday.

Correa took BP off a pitching machine Sunday and "looked great" and "felt great" according to Astros manager A.J. Hinch. Things are progressing well for the shortstop as he works his way back from a torn ligament in his left thumb and it's looking like he has a shot to be activated on September 1.
Aug 20 - 12:49 PM

MLB.com's Jordan Bastian writes that Corey Kluber (ankle) "didn't appear to have any issues" during a bullpen session Sunday.

We'll have to wait and see how he feels Monday, but all signs are pointing to Kluber being fine to make his next scheduled start Wednesday versus the Red Sox. He exited his last outing with a mildly sprained right ankle.
Aug 20 - 12:42 PM

Clayton Kershaw (back) could potentially rejoin the Dodgers' rotation on September 1.

The way things are lined up, the earlier Kershaw might make it back is August 31, but the club waiting another day when rosters expand is more likely. Kershaw will throw a three-inning simulated game Monday and begin a rehab assignment next weekend. It sounds like it may be the only rehab start he needs before rejoining the rotation, assuming all goes well. Kershaw has been out for the last four weeks with a lower back strain.
