Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

Puig went hitless in Friday night's game to drop to .219/.289/.383 on the year. In his absence, te Dodgers will try an outfield of Matt Kemp-Cody Bellinger-Joc Pederson Saturday.

Alen Hanson (hamstring) will play in an extended spring training game Monday before joining High-A San Jose on Wednesday.

Hanson hit the disabled list on May 14 with a left hamstring strain, but he wasn't expected to miss much more than the minimum. That timetable has passed, but Hanson appears on track to be back with the team by the first few days of June. Hanson was batting a surprising .298/.346/.638 before the injury and should have a role on the team, even with Joe Panik assumed to be back around the same time, when he returns.

Johnny Cueto (elbow) will begin throwing off flat ground Monday.

Cueto is on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain and is out until early July at the earliest, so this is the first step in what will likely be a lengthy process. Cueto will be welcomed back with open arms by the club and fantasy owners when he does return, after he posted a shiny 0.84 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in five starts before the injury.

Buster Posey is out of Saturday's lineup against the Cubs with right hip soreness.

He's just day to day and is available to pinch-hit, but it's an ailment nonetheless. He's in question for Sunday's game as well. Nick Hundley is getting the start post-dish Saturday, and would start Sunday's game if Posey is out for that one, too. Still, it's not considered serious.

Indians sent RHP Alexi Ogando outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Ogando was designated for assignment on May 20 and passed through waivers unclaimed. He accepted the assignment to Triple-A and is no longer on the team's 40-man roster.
May 26 - 5:42 PM

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Saturday's game that Drew Pomeranz will make his next scheduled start against the Astros.

There was some uncertainty about his outlook after he was battered again Saturday, leaving him with a 6.75 ERA and 1.88 WHIP, but Cora said the club and Pomeranz will just have to continue looking for fixes on the fly. Even if the Red Sox have to roll with him, fantasy owners don't, and should have jumped ship by now. He can't be used in any format until he gets back on track, and the results show it.
May 26 - 5:40 PM

Joe Panik (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment Monday at Triple-A Sacramento.

He'll need roughly five games and/or 20 at-bats to round into form, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea. That puts him on a trajectory to rejoin the Giants next weekend. Panik hasn't played since April 27 due to a torn UCL in his left thumb.

Alex Reyes (elbow) will make his season debut Wednesday against the Brewers, according to Craig Mish of Sirius XM.

Reyes made quick work of his four minor league rehab starts, striking out 44 over 23 scoreless innings, and it was only a question of when, not if, he'd get into a major league game in the coming days. With Reyes back and in fine form, the Cardinals' rotation is suddenly stout with he, Jack Flaherty, Luke Weaver, Miles Mikolas and Michael Wacha and, when he returns, Carlos Martinez in tow. Reyes is surely owned in most competitive leagues, but if he's available, correct that immediately, especially now with firm plans known.
