Jayson Werth is batting second for the Nationals on Sunday.

Michael Taylor was initially slated to hit in the No. 2 spot for the second straight day, but manager Dusty Baker made a wise switch and flip-flopped the two players, pushing Taylor down to the seven hole. Werth could stick in the spot for the long haul with Adam Eaton (knee) done for the season.

Chris Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore right elbow.

Davis' elbow is still a little tender after he was hit by a pitch on Saturday. He still wanted to play Sunday, so it's probably safe to assume he'll be back in there Monday. Trey Mancini has moved from right field to first base and Craig Gentry entered the lineup in right.

Phillies recalled RHP Nick Pivetta from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Pivetta will make his major league debut on Sunday against the Dodgers. It's likely to just be a spot start with Aaron Nola (back) due back soon. Fantasy owners can pass on Pivetta.

Rajai Davis (hamstring) is on track to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Davis has batted only .214/.262/.375 in the early going for the Athletics, but he'll get his center field job back upon activation and should also spend plenty of time in the leadoff spot.

J.D. Martinez (foot) was sore after taking nine at-bats in extended spring training Friday.

It's not unexpected after a long layoff, but it did result in Martinez receiving treatment Saturday and Sunday rather than getting in more at-bats. He could return to extended spring action on Monday.

Alex Bregman is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a simple day off. Carlos Beltran is also sitting out, as the Astros have Marwin Gonzalez at third base and Evan Gattis in the designated hitter spot.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Sunday that the typical timetable for someone with Adam Eaton's (knee) injuries is 6-9 months.

More will be known after Eaton has surgery, but 6-9 months is the rough expectation right now. Rizzo noted that Eaton had a full thickness tear of his left ACL as well as a meniscus tear and high ankle sprain. The Nationals haven't officially ruled him out for the rest of the season, but that undoubtedly will happen after Eaton goes under the knife. Rizzo added that the club is confident it can fill the center field void internally. It will start with Michael Taylor, but Rafael Bautista also looms as an option. It seems unlikely that top prospect Victor Robles would be pushed to the majors this season given that he's only in High-A and won't turn 20 until next month.
Apr 30 - 11:20 AM

Travis Shaw (hand) is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Shaw was removed from Saturday's game after being hit on the right hand by a pitch. He escaped with only a bruise but is obviously still sore. Hernan Perez is handling third base.
