Padres manager Andy Green said Monday that Brad Hand, Phil Maton and Kirby Yates will be in the mix for saves following the trade of Brandon Maurer.

Green also said that Carter Capps, who has been pitching much better at Triple-A El Paso, is also "definitely in the conversation." Hand, of course, could be traded in the next week, so him being the likely favorite for saves might be short-lived. Both Maton (3.63 ERA, 18/2 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings) and Yates (2.23 ERA, 49/9 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings) have both pitched very well and are worth stashing. Capps is a worthy speculative add, as well.

Robinson Chirinos (ankle) could be available to play as soon as Wednesday.

Chirinos is feeling better than expected Monday after spraining his left ankle Sunday. "I woke up today, and it felt better than I thought," Chirinos said. "I hit in the cage. It felt like I can deal with it. The way I felt yesterday, I thought it would feel worse today." With Chirinos considered only day-to-day, the Rangers can go back to shopping Jonathan Lucroy.

George Springer departed Monday's game against the Phillies with discomfort in his left quad.

It's unclear when Springer suffered the injury or whether it could potentially be more than a day-to-day situation. The Astros will have an update on their star outfielder after the game.

Xander Bogaerts was a late scratch from the Red Sox' lineup Monday due to illness.

Bogaerts has dealt with a sprain of a joint in his right hand recently, but he's sitting out this one because he's under the weather. Andrew Benintendi had been slated for a day off but entered the lineup in Bogaerts' place.

Mark Melancon (elbow) could face hitters as soon as this weekend.

Melancon will throw another bullpen session Tuesday before possibly being cleared to face hitters. The Giants hope he'll be ready to resume his closing duties in a couple weeks.
Jul 24 - 8:06 PM

Johnny Cueto (blisters) could throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Cueto played catch again Monday and it appears his blister issues have healed for now. The veteran right-hander is expected to rejoin the Giants' rotation before long, although it's unclear whether he'll need a rehab start first.
Jul 24 - 8:04 PM

Miguel Gonzalez tossed 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball in Monday's 3-1 victory over the Cubs.

Gonzalez recorded only three strikeouts and also walked three, but five of the seven hits he allowed were singles and he limited the damage to an RBI groundout. The veteran right-hander has limited the Dodgers and now the Cubs to one run apiece in his two starts since returning from the disabled list. He'll try to keep it going against the Indians this weekend.
Jul 24 - 8:01 PM

Making his first start in the majors since early June, Kyle Hendricks allowed just one run but lasted only 4 1/3 innings in Monday's no-decision versus the White Sox.

The good news is that he gave up just the one run and struck out five without walking anyone. The bad news is he surrendered eight hits and needed 92 pitches to cover his 4 1/3 frames. Hendricks pitched well on his rehab assignment and insisted that he was feeling like he did last season, but the results in his first outing back were mixed. He'll try for a better line this weekend in Milwaukee.
