Joe Panik is not in Sunday's lineup due to nagging back stiffness.

Panik played the last two days after missing two games with a stiff back, but now he's on the bench again. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that the infielder should be available off the bench, but he doesn't expect to start him for a few days. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Sunday.
Aug 2 - 1:53 PM

Brad Hand will start on Tuesday versus the Mets.

Hand has worked mostly in long relief this season, but he'll get a chance to start following the trade of Dan Haren. The left-hander holds a 5.12 ERA over 45 2/3 innings this season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday that Matt Joyce (concussion) has been symptom-free for a couple days.

Joyce should be ready to return soon, but with the addition of David Murphy, Shane Victorino and David DeJesus, there's really no longer a role for him. He's a candidate to be designated for assignment. Joyce is batting just .178/.274/.298 on the season.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

It's a simple day off. Roberto Perez will catch in Gomes' place.
Aug 2 - 1:26 PM

Jason Kipnis is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday due to soreness in his right shoulder.

The shoulder has limited Kipnis to designated hitter duty of late and now he's out of the lineup altogether. He had the shoulder examined and the Indians are expected to provide more on his status shortly. Carlos Santana is the DH Sunday, with Jerry Sands covering first base.

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will receive a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache this week.

Morrow was scratched from his rehab start last Thursday due to more shoulder discomfort. A subsequent exam by Padres team physician Dr. Heinz Hoenecke on Friday resulted in a diagnosis of shoulder inflammation, which is what Morrow has been dealing with for three months. However, he wants to get another opinion to see if anything else is going on. The right-hander would seem to be a long shot to pitch for the Padres again this season.
Aug 2 - 1:19 PM

Chase Utley (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Utley has been ramping up baseball activities since the All-Star break and is now ready to test things out in game action. He's hitting just .179/.257/.275 this season but reportedly discovered a mechanical flaw in his swing that he thinks was caused by his nagging ankle injury. Utley could be an August trade candidate if he turns things around at the plate.
Aug 2 - 12:53 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a day off. Andre Ethier has shifted over to right field in Puig's place, while Carl Crawford is getting a start in left.
