Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) could resume a throwing program on Friday.

It would be the first step in a lengthy rehab process. Bumgarner would begin with some light catch and then slowly build up his throwing progression. Once he's deemed ready for game action, he will need five rehab starts before rejoining the Giants' rotation. This is all assuming he progresses without a setback, which is far from a sure thing when you're coming back from a shoulder injury. Bumgarner won't be back until late July even in a best-case scenario.

Ben Zobrist (wrist) hopes to be back in the Cubs' lineup on Monday.

Zobrist tweaked his left wrist during an at-bat Friday and is out of the lineup Sunday for the second straight day. The Cubs are going with Javier Baez at second base and in the leadoff spot and an outfield of Ian Happ, Albert Almora and Jason Heyward.

Jon Gray (foot) threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session Sunday without wearing a walking boot.

It's his first boot-less bullpen session since he was placed on the disabled list in mid-April with a stress fracture in his left foot. Gray will now increase his baseball activity level and doesn't appear to be too far off from a rehab assignment. He's expected to need at least three rehab starts before being activated, so it will still be a while.

Joc Pederson is still experiencing mild concussion symptoms.

Any level of concussion symptoms are obviously not good, and it doesn't sound like Pederson is poised to resume baseball activities soon. Consider him out indefinitely.

Brandon McCarthy (knee) expects to make his next scheduled start on Thursday in St. Louis.

An MRI has confirmed that McCarthy is dealing with patella tendinitis in his right knee, but it's something he said he's dealt with all season and he says he can pitch through it. The tall right-hander has allowed just one run on five hits and two walks across 12 innings in his last two starts.

Luis Avilan (triceps) will resume a throwing program Tuesday.

He expects to be sidelined longer than the minimum 10 days, however. Avilan was placed on the disabled list Thursday.
May 28 - 1:51 PM

David Holmberg will start for the White Sox on Monday in Boston.

Holmberg has fared well at Triple-A Charlotte (1.76 ERA) and in the majors (0.87 ERA) this season, but he's a junkballing lefty who the Red Sox will likely eat alive. His stay in the rotation figures to be short with James Shields (lat) not far off.

Jonathan Villar is batting seventh for the Brewers on Sunday.

Villar made a start in the No. 3 spot a little over a week ago, but that was the only other time he's hit anywhere other than leadoff. The 26-year-old is currently in a 6-for-36 slide at the dish that has his season line down to .213/.285/.330. Villar has been woeful against lefties this season (.514 OPS) and the Brewers are facing southpaw Patrick Corbin, so it's possible Villar will be back in the leadoff spot Monday when they go up against righty Robert Gsellman. Keon Broxton is batting leadoff Sunday. This is obviously a situation to keep an eye on, as it could have a big fantasy impact on both players.
