Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Angels are among the teams interested in L.J. Hoes.
Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reported previously that the Orioles are interested in not only Hoes but also Alex Presley. Hoes, who came up in the Baltimore organization, has spent almost all of the season at Triple-A, hitting .335/.417/.466 with three homers and 11 steals.
Jered Weaver (hip) threw a bullpen session on Monday.
He threw all fastballs during the 20-pitch session and felt good afterwards. Weaver will toss another bullpen session in a few days and will incorporate all of his pitches that time. The veteran right-hander has missed the last week of action with left hip irritation and isn't expected to rejoin the Angels' rotation until after the All-Star break.
Jed Lowrie (thumb) has progressed to swinging a fungo bat.
Lowrie had been swinging a wiffle ball bat. The infielder is two months removed from surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament and remains a few weeks away from a return.
Alcides Escobar (finger) was a late scratch from the Royals' lineup Monday.
Escobar had to be pulled from Sunday's game because of a split nail on his right index finger. He admitted prior to Monday's game that he's having some pain when he throws and the Royals have decided to play it safe and scratch him. Consider Escobar day-to-day.
Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Monday.
He was cleared for game action after working out with the Yankees over the weekend with no issues. Ellsbury will be used in the designated hitter spot for Tampa on Monday and is slated for 3-4 plate appearances. The Yankees expect him to need only a few rehab games, so Ellsbury could be activated from the disabled list before the end of the week.
Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.
Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away.
Mike Morin (oblique) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Morin is done with his rehab assignment, but he pitched on Sunday so the Angels will give him a day or two of rest before activating him. He's missed the last month with a strained left oblique.
Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Monday.
It's just a day off. John Ryan Murphy is behind the plate while McCann rests.
