Francisco Cervelli is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

He's just receiving a breather. Chris Stewart is behind the plate Sunday in Cervelli's place.
Apr 19 - 10:46 AM

An MRI on Yunel Escobar's groin showed only inflammation.

Escobar was injured on Friday when he tweaked his groin while running out a ground ball. He'll avoid the disabled list for now, as the hope is that he can work out Sunday and return to the lineup Tuesday after Monday's off day. Danny Espinosa is at third base Sunday.
Apr 19 - 10:45 AM

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off for Ramirez, who is off to a brutal .140/.140/.186 start at the plate. Luis Jimenez is at third base Sunday in his place.
Apr 19 - 10:42 AM

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

It's just a day of rest. Brock Holt is handling second base in Pedroia's place and is also hitting leadoff, pushing Mookie Betts to the two-spot. Ryan Hanigan is on the bench Sunday, as well, with Sandy Leon catching Rick Porcello.
Apr 19 - 10:38 AM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Charlie Morton (hip) took a "step forward" with his 55-pitch simulated game on Friday.

Morton is healthy, but the Pirates are having him work on his mechanics following last September's left hip surgery. The righty is shortening his arm action and focusing on keeping his weight over his right leg. "The delivery is synching up to what we saw in ’13 and ’14 in some good stretches," Hurdle said. Morton will be stretched out to 90-100 pitches in a rehab assignment before return, so he's still got a while.
Apr 19 - 10:35 AM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

It looks like he's just receiving a breather. John Ryan Murphy is behind the plate Sunday in McCann's place. Carlos Beltran is also sitting out, as he's apparently still battling an illness. Garrett Jones is handling right field.

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

It's just a routine day of rest. Cesar Hernandez is playing second base Sunday in Utley's place, while Cody Asche has assumed the No. 3 spot in the batting order.
Apr 19 - 10:27 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Jeurys Familia will continue to serve as the team's closer even after Bobby Parnell (elbow) and Vic Black (shoulder) return.

It's no surprise given how well he's pitched (2.70 ERA, 9/1 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings, 5-for-5 in save chances) and the fact that Parnell's velocity has been down during his rehab assignment. Parnell could be another couple weeks away from being activated and Familia is talented enough to run away with the job.
