Ryan Zimmerman is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.
It's a simple day off. Clint Robinson is filling in at first base for the Nats. Michael Taylor is also getting a breather, as Matt den Dekker is in center field and in the leadoff spot.
Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports that Major League Baseball is likely to announce their suspension of Jose Reyes this week.
It's been six months since Reyes was arrested in Maui for alleged domestic abuse. The charge has since been dismissed, but MLB still has the power to suspend Reyes as long as they see fit. The suspension is expected to easily exceed the 30-game ban levied against Aroldis Chapman. Reyes' role for the Rockies is up in the air whenever he is reinstated, as Trevor Story has taken hold of the shortstop job.
Joe Panik (groin) remained out of the GI ants' lineup Sunday.
Panik is battling a groin injury and will sit out a second straight contest. Kelby Tomlinson is holding down second base again.
Billy Hamilton is batting second for the Reds on Sunday.
Hamilton has spent most of the season in the No. 9 spot but has earned a move up in the order with six hits in his last 17 at-bats. Zack Cozart remains in the leadoff spot for the Reds, while Eugenio Suarez has been moved down to the No. 6 spot.
Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.
He's just receiving some rest. Carlos Sanchez is filling in at shortstop.
X-rays on Zach Britton's left ankle came back negative.
Britton is using crutches and in a soft boot on Sunday, but he's feeling much better and expects to avoid the disabled list. The closer still figures to be unavailable for a few games, which means Darren O'Day or possibly Brad Brach or Mychal Givens could receive some save chances.
Robbie Erlin (elbow) could play catch on Sunday.
Erlin was shut down last week after feeling some soreness in his elbow. He's not close to a return, and with Cesar Vargas pitching well the Padres can afford to take their time with the left-hander.
Adam Morgan's average fastball was clocked at 90.8 mph during Friday's start against the Indians.
That's up almost a full two mph from last season. Morgan is now two years removed from shoulder surgery and it appears he's beginning to regain his old velocity. "Everything is good, and that's what I'm excited about. Everything has been progressing phenomenally," Morgan said. "It's a good sign, for sure. I'm feeling good, and it gives me confidence." Morgan's upside still isn't all that high even with the better velocity, but he could carve out some NL-only value.
