Rajai Davis is expected to rejoin the Tigers on Friday.
Davis was excused from the club on Tuesday afternoon so that he can be present for the birth of his second child.
Khris Davis underwent scheduled surgery Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said the surgery "went well" and guessed that Davis would only miss 4-6 weeks. Gerardo Parra will serve as the primary left fielder for Milwaukee until early-to-mid July.
Denard Span (knee) is not in the lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.
Span also sat out the first game. He made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Reds after experiencing renewed discomfort in his right knee and apparently hasn't felt much improvement. But an MRI showed no structural damage, so Span should be able to avoid another disabled list stint. Michael Taylor is playing center field on Tuesday night.
Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.
Abreu hasn't played since leaving Friday's game against the Astros with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has bothered Abreu off and on over the first two months of the 2015 regular season. He'll aim to return to action on Wednesday.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that J.J. Hardy is getting an MRI on his left oblique.
It sounds like Hardy may have a strained oblique, which would put him back on the disabled list. The 32-year-old has played in only 23 games this season for Baltimore. Ryan Flaherty is at shortstop on Tuesday night.
Alex Avila (knee) has been cleared for baseball-related activities.
And manager Brad Ausmus said Tuesday that he expects Avila to progress quickly now that his left knee is discomfort-free. There's still no exact timetable for the catcher's return, but mid-June seems like a fair target. James McCann will continue to serve as Detroit's primary backstop for now.
Kyle Ryan will start Friday against the White Sox.
Ryan allowed one run in three innings Wednesday in a start against the A's. The 23-year-old left-hander is not a good fantasy bet Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field.
Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) is likely to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday.
MLB.com's Jane Lee says Pomeranz will be put in the bullpen rather than added back to the rotation. But that could change. Pomeranz wound up missing around three weeks with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. He threw two hitless innings and struck out three Sunday at High-A Stockton in what was his only rehab appearance.
