Mike Moustakas is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.
The thought was that he was just getting the day off on Monday, but it sounds like something could be up. The Royals should provide an update soon. Christian Colon is starting at third base.
Cubs transferred INF Christian Villanueva from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a spot for Ryan Kalish on the 40-man roster. Villanueva fractured his right fibula in late February and is expected to miss most, if not all, of the season.
Cubs purchased the contract of OF Ryan Kalish from Triple-A Iowa.
He'll replace the injured Matt Szczur (hamstring) on the active roster. Kalish, now 28, was batting .368/.471/.509 through 20 games in Triple-A this season. He'll mostly function as a lefty bat off the bench, but he could see a couple of starts mixed in.
Rays SS prospect Daniel Robertson ended a three-game hitless streak by providing four hits Monday in a win for Triple-A Durham.
Robertson had been just six for his last 29 before Monday's explosion. The 22-year-old finished a home run shy of the cycle. He also scored twice while plating four runs. Robertson earned his promotion to Triple-A this year by hitting .274 across 299 at-bats for Double-A Montgomery in 2015. He homered 15 times in 2014 but has only logged five round-trippers since then.
Cubs placed OF Matt Szczur on the 15-day disabled list with a mild right hamstring strain.
It's too bad, as Szczur was off to a nice start this season, batting .367/.441/.600 with two home runs and 10 RBI over 21 games. Ryan Kalish will take his place on the active roster.
Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) has progressed to land-based jogging.
Or, you know, jogging. The Indians are taking it easy with him, so most of his rehab has been restricted to pool work for now. Carrasco strained his left hamstring late last month and will likely be sidelined until the end of May or early June.
Randal Grichuk is back in the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.
Grichuk didn't start Monday's game, but he came off the bench and went 2-for-2 with a homer. Hopefully that will get him going. He's still batting just .200/.278/.413 through 24 games this season.
Jon Moscot (shoulder) has been scratched from Tuesday's start against the Giants.
Moscot has been dealing with a shoulder issue of late, so John Lamb has been activated from the disabled list and will start in his place. It's unclear if a stint on the disabled list will be necessary.
