Kevin Kiermaier (thumb) is on track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

It was reported previously that Kiermaier would return on Friday, but he must have talked his way into an earlier return. The outfielder will go through a workout with the Rays on Monday and then be activated the following day assuming all goes well. He's been out since mid-April with a torn ligament in his right thumb and went 7-for-17 (.412) with a triple and a double in five rehab games.

Cubs recalled LHP Rob Zastryzny from Triple-A Iowa.

Zastryzny has made one two-inning scoreless appearance for the Cubs this season. He'll give them another lefty in the bullpen while Brian Duensing is on bereavement.

Cubs placed LHP Brian Duensing on the bereavement list.

He can be away for 3-7 games. Rob Zastryzny has taken Duensing's spot in the bullpen.

Javier Baez (elbow) could return to the Cubs' lineup Tuesday.

Baez is sitting out Monday after leaving Sunday's game following a hit by pitch on the left elbow, but he didn't need any X-rays and said he's fine. Ben Zobrist is at second base Monday.
Jun 18 - 5:01 PM

Clayton Kershaw (back) said after getting through a three-inning simulated game Monday that he expects to pitch in a game in five days.

Kershaw wouldn't say if that game would be a start in New York against the Mets, but he didn't seem to rule it out, either. The veteran left-hander has made just one start for the Dodgers since May 1, but he has rejoined their rotation without a rehab start before in the past. We'll know more about his status in the coming days.

Tom Murphy is starting at catcher and batting eighth for the Rockies on Monday.

Murphy has started six of seven games since being recalled, including five at catcher. Chris Iannetta and Tony Wolters haven't provided much at the plate on an offense that's struggled, and it appears the Rockies are willing to give Murphy -- who has the best offensive ceiling of the trio -- a long look. Murphy is hitting .300/.333/.400 over his first five games with the big club after slugging 16 homers over 48 games at Triple-A. He needs to be owned in fantasy leagues.
Jun 18 - 4:48 PM

Jerad Eickhoff (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

He'll continue to build things up with bullpen sessions before then facing hitters and resuming a rehab assignment. Eickhoff has been out all season with shoulder issues.
Jun 18 - 4:42 PM

Pat Neshek (lat) threw live batting practice Sunday.

He'll do it again Wednesday before the Phillies determine the next step, which would presumably be a rehab assignment. Neshek has been out all season with a strained lat.
