Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Monday that Ryan Zimmerman (oblique) might be ready "fairly soon."

Zimmerman will need a short rehab assignment first, but it sounds like that might be imminent. The veteran first baseman has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a strained right oblique. Zimmerman's fill-in, Matt Adams, has really cooled off of late after a hot start.

Daniel Murphy (knee) still hasn't played in any extended spring training games because of illness.

Murphy was supposed to be nearly a week into game action by now, so it must be a nasty bug that he's fighting. The setback would presumably delay his return to the Nationals a bit, although there hasn't been any set timetable at this point.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is making progress but is still a few weeks away from a return.

Beltre has been on the disabled list twice this season with left hamstring issues, with the latest setback coming a week ago. The veteran third baseman has been a quick healer during his career, but given that he's 39 and has had an injury and then aggravation, it's not a surprise that he'll be out a while longer.

White Sox signed OF Michael Saunders to a minor league contract.

Saunders exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league deal with the Orioles last week and has now caught one with a new club. It's a good spot for him, especially with Nicky Delmonico (hand) and Avisail Garcia (hamstring) both on the disabled list. Saunders could get a shot with the big club before long.
May 21 - 4:37 PM

Jerad Eickhoff (lat) felt a twinge in the tips of his right middle and index fingers when throwing curveballs during his latest rehab start.

Eickhoff has been out all season with a strained lat but now has a new ailment to deal with. He's being re-evaluated before the Phillies determine what his next step is. With Eickhoff likely out for a while longer, it gives Zach Eflin and Vince Velasquez more leash in the rotation.
May 21 - 4:34 PM

Rangers activated INF/OF Drew Robinson from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

Robinson is over his hip issue but will work on things in the minors for a while. He's hit just .175/.258/.238 for the Rangers this season.
May 21 - 4:21 PM

Rangers recalled RHP Matt Bush from Triple-A Round Rock.

Bush was sent down late last month after struggling with his control. He walked four in his nine innings at Round Rock but also struck out 14 and held a 2.00 ERA. Bush figures to be eased back into high-leverage situations but could find himself back in a setup role relatively soon.
May 21 - 4:20 PM

Rangers designated RHP Kevin Jepsen for assignment.

Jepsen held a 5.94 ERA and ugly 8/11 K/BB ratio over 16 2/3 relief innings. He can opt for free agency after clearing waivers.
