Steve Pearce is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.
It's just a day of rest for Pearce, who is hitting only .175/.267/.325 in the early going. Jimmy Paredes is in the designated hitter spot, with Chris Davis at first base.
Kevin Kiermaier (illness) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.
He's battled the flu bug the last couple days. Desmond Jennings is covering center field in Kiermaier's absence, with Brandon Guyer handling left.
Danny Santana is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.
It's just a routine day of rest. Eduardo Escobar is at shortstop Sunday in Santana's place, while Brian Dozier has moved up to the leadoff spot.
Shane Victorino (ribs) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.
Victorino sat out Saturday with sore ribs after running into the wall Friday, but he says he's fine. The veteran outfielder is hitting just .125/.300/.125 in the early going this season.
Carlos Carrasco (jaw) has had his next start pushed back from Monday to Tuesday.
He hasn't had a setback with his bruised jaw, but rather the Indians have just decided to keep Trevor Bauer on regular rest and flip-flop the order of the two. Carrasco, of course, had to leave his last outing after being hit in the side of the face with a comebacker, but he escaped serious injury.
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus admitted Sunday that Victor Martinez (knee) is "certainly not 100 percent."
V-Mart is battling soreness in his left knee, although Ausmus revealed that the discomfort is in the top of the knee and not in the area the designated hitter had surgically-repaired. It's more of an issue when Martinez bats left-handed, but Ausmus doesn't plan to sit V-Mart against any more righties as he did on Friday. Worth noting is that Martinez is hitless in seven at-bats since he tweaked the knee on April 11.
Justin Verlander (triceps) is not expected to throw on Sunday.
The Tigers are going to slow Verlander's rehab down, but he had been expected to play catch Sunday. No further tests are planned at the moment, but the right-hander has just had trouble with fatigue in his right triceps when he throws off a mound. Consider him out indefinitely.
Alcides Escobar (knee) remained out of the Royals' lineup Sunday.
The Royals are hoping to avoid placing Escobar on the disabled list after he suffered a mild left knee strain on Friday, but it's possible he'll need a few more days. Christian Colon is again filling in at shortstop. Salvador Perez is also out of the lineup Sunday, as he's receiving his first day of rest this season. Erik Kratz is behind the dish.
