Roberto Osuna is likely to get a day off Monday.

Osuna allowed a solo homer in a successful save appearance Sunday afternoon against the Royals -- his third outing in four games. Aaron Sanchez could get a look in his place as the Jays celebrate Provincial Day with a Monday matinee. Osuna, 20, boasts a 2.27 ERA and 53/11 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season and he is 7-for-8 in save chances.

Drew Smyly (shoulder) is scheduled to make his third rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Durham.

Smyly has been hit hard in his first rehab two outings at Triple-A, allowing four runs in 2 1/3 innings on July 26 and five runs in 3 1/3 innings on July 31. He'll try to begin showing better results this week with an eye on a mid-August return to the Rays' starting rotation. Smyly has been out since early May.

Joe Mauer is not in the Twins' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

Mauer gets a day off with the Twins taking on new Blue Jays left-hander David Price. Trevor Plouffe is starting at first base and batting third at Toronto's Rogers Centre. Eduardo Nunez is handling the hot corner.

Andrelton Simmons will undergo an MRI on his injured right thumb Monday in Atlanta.

It's being called a sprain for now, but there's some concern that the injury is more severe. "I'm hoping, but I'm always a glass half-full kind of guy," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Sunday when asked whether his shortstop is facing an extended absence. Simmons suffered the thumb injury Saturday while diving for a ball.

Jon Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners.

There have been rumors for weeks that Gray was on the verge of a callup, and the well-built 23-year-old right-hander is now finally getting his shot. Gray, the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque. He's MLB-ready and one of the top young starters in baseball, though Coors Field can be hell on pitchers of all profiles. Fantasy owners might want to take it start-by-start with him out of the gate.

Pablo Sandoval (forearm) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Sandoval hasn't started a game since taking a pitch off his left forearm last Thursday evening. He just has a bruise and should be good to go this week.
