The Cardinals plan to keep Aledmys Diaz at shortstop after Jhonny Peralta's (thumb) return from the disabled list.

The common thought had been that Diaz would move around to different infield positions after Peralta returns. But, while Diaz could play some second and third base, it sounds like the Cards intend to leave him at shortstop most days and move Peralta and Matt Carpenter around the diamond instead. Diaz has struggled defensively at shortstop this season but has been much better of late. "I feel like it’s going to create a fresh opportunity for us, but I also feel like given what you’re seeing out of Diaz at his age (25) you really need to see him develop at shortstop," general manager John Mozeliak said. "When you look at what he’s been able to do, seeing him hold that spot for the next five or six years is reasonable to think. We want to keep him developing and also figure out the right combination to win games. We need to have at least one player moving around. We need one of the veterans to say, ‘Hey, I’m willing.’"

Kendrys Morales (finger) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Morales hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sprained right finger, but he took batting practice Sunday without any issues. He's in the designated hitter spot and hitting fifth against Chris Sale and the White Sox.

C.J. Wilson will be shut down indefinitely after feeling soreness in his pitching arm during Saturday's rehab start.

Wilson was initially diagnosed with biceps tendinitis, although more details will be available after he undergoes an MRI. The left-hander got a late start to spring training while working his way back from elbow surgery and has had multiple setbacks with his shoulder since then. He's in the final year of a five-year contract that's paying him $20 million this season.

Elvis Andrus is absent from the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for Andrus. Hanser Alberto will handle shortstop.

Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight games and eight out of the last 14 contests with a variety of ailments. His back has been the most recent reason for his absence, so that's presumably why he's sitting again Sunday. Braun has been a beast this season when healthy, hitting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs, but he's had some trouble staying on the field. Alex Presley is in left field Sunday.

Kendrys Morales (finger) is tentatively penciled into the Royals' lineup Sunday.

He still needs to test out his sprained right finger in batting practice before he's written in in ink. Morales hasn't played since Tuesday.

Salvador Perez (quad) is expected to be sidelined for the next 7-10 days.

An MRI on Perez's right quad and knee didn't reveal any structural damage, but he has a bad bruise and is surely very sore after Saturday's collision with Cheslor Cuthbert. The Royals have recalled Tony Cruz and he will share the catching duties with Drew Butera while Perez is on the shelf.

Salvador Perez (quad) is absent from the Royals' lineup Sunday.

The good news is that while Tony Cruz was recalled, he didn't replace Perez on the roster. The All-Star catcher suffered a quad contusion in a collision with Cheslor Cuthbert on Saturday, but it appears he's avoided a serious injury. Drew Butera is catching Sunday.
