Jason Heyward (groin) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Monday.

Heyward tweaked his left groin while chasing down a ball in the corner on Sunday. The ailment isn't considered serious, but he'll receive at least one day of rest. Mark Reynolds is getting a start in right field in Heyward's place.

Astros prospect Preston Tucker leads all Triple-A hitters with seven homers and 24 RBI this season.

If the season ended today, Tucker might be the Pacific League MVP. In 17 games for Fresno, Tucker has hit .314 with a stunning .643 slugging percentage. He's been a rockstar this year and the Astros have to be taking notice. If it doesn't happen before that, Tucker should be promoted to Houston when the rosters expand in September.
Apr 27 - 4:48 PM

Yadier Molina (knee) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Monday.

Molina sat out the previous two games after taking a foul tip off his right knee. The All-Star catcher sports a .294/.345/.373 batting line in the early going this season.
Apr 27 - 4:44 PM

Twins prospect Stephen Gonsalvez has been a strikeout machine this year at Low-A Cedar Rapids.

Gonsalves has amassed 30 strikeouts to just two walks this season. His 0.90 ERA and .159 opponent batting average are equally remarkable. Simply put, Gonsalves is ready to move to the next level. Expect the 20-year-old right-hander to receive his promotion sooner rather than later.

Indians prospect Cody Anderson has looked sharp for Double-A Akron this season.

Anderson hasn't allowed more than one run in any of his four starts this year. He carries a 1.13 ERA across 24 innings of work. Anderson had a disastrous season in 2014 (4-11, 5.44 ERA in 25 starts for Akron) but seems to have turned the corner. Opponents are hitting .235 against Anderson, down from .285 a year ago.

Red Sox prospect Michael Kopech hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts for Low-A Greenville.

He's fanned seven batters over than span without allowing a walk. Kopech suffered an ugly debut (3 2/3 IP, 3 ER against Lexington) but has been lights out ever since. The 18-year-old bypassed a chance to play at the University of Arizona so he could join the Red Sox organization. He was the 33rd overall pick in last year's draft.

Alex Colome (illness) will rejoin the Rays' rotation this weekend in Baltimore.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times suggests that Friday would be the most likely day. Colome got a late start to spring training due to a visa issue and then went down with pneumonia, but he's healthy now and spun six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham. The young right-hander is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 27 - 4:18 PM

Austin Jackson is not in the Mariners' lineup Monday.

It appears to just be a day of rest. Logan Morrison is also on the bench for the M's, as Justin Ruggiano is in center field and Willie Bloomquist is at first base.
