Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) has resumed throwing from a mound.
Lobstein has been on the shelf since late May with soreness in his left shoulder. There remains no timetable for his return, but it would seem he'd have a shot to contribute at some point this season with the Tigers if he can progress without any setbacks.
David Carpenter (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.
He was cleared after a second opinion showed sufficient healing with his pitching shoulder. There's no timetable for Carpenter's return at the moment, but he should be ready to rejoin the Nationals' bullpen sometime this month.
Denard Span (back) will resume light workouts on Monday.
Span has been shut down for the last two weeks since receiving a cortisone injection in his ailing back. He'll be slowly ramped back up and will need a rehab assignment before returning, so it will be a little while. Still, Monday was obviously a nice step for the outfielder.
Joe Panik is headed back to San Francisco to undergo tests on his ailing back.
An MRI and cat scan will be part of the battery of tests he goes through. Panik was placed on the disabled list Monday with what the Giants are simply calling lower back inflammation for now, but they should get a better read on his status Tuesday. A clearer picture on his timetable should be known then.
Marlins optioned INF Donovan Solano to Triple-A New Orleans.
Solano has managed just a .156/.194/.219 batting line over 46 games this season. The Marlins have elected to keep Miguel Rojas around as a utility infielder over him.
A.J. Burnett is expected to be sidelined for four weeks after being diagnosed with a right flexor strain.
Burnett has been given a platelet-rich plasma injection in hopes that it will speed along the recovery process. It has to be considered good news overall, as it appears Burnett's ligament is intact. However, he's far from out of the woods yet, and even if he makes it back he's not a great bet to stay healthy. Even Burnett himself admitted that the four-week timetable is "iffy." The righty also confirmed that he's committed to retirement after the season. The Pirates acquired J.A. Happ last week to bolster their rotation.
An MRI on Carter Capps' right elbow showed no major damage and he's expected to resume throwing in 3-4 days.
Capps was placed on the disabled list Monday with a strained pitching elbow, but the Marlins think he'll be ready to return when his 15 days are up. It wouldn't be a surprise if it ultimately takes a bit longer than that, but obviously this is good news. Capps has been an elite reliever this season, posting a 1.16 ERA and 58/7 K/BB ratio over 31 innings.
Steven Matz (lat) threw on flat ground Monday.
It's the first time he's done any throwing since he was diagnosed with a partially torn left lat muscle nearly four weeks ago. Obviously, the Mets will proceed cautiously with Matz, building him back up slowly. There's no timetable for his return, but Monday was a nice step.
