Ian Happ - OF - Cubs

Ian Happ is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

The outfield for the Cubs against Trevor Bauer and the Indians will be Kyle Schwarber , Albert Almora and Ben Zobrist getting a start in right. The 23-year-old has struck out 54 times in 39 games, but still is slashing .254/.361/509 with seven homers in 39 games.

Nationals OF Moises Sierra cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Syracuse.

Sierra was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a space for Juan Soto. In 27 games for the Nationals, the 29-year-old outfielder hit .167/.217/.204 over 27 games for the club. He'll likely serve as organizational depth for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Blue Jays recalled 2B Devon Travis from Triple-A Buffalo.

Travis was sent to the International League on April 29 after getting off to an atrocious start; hitting .148/.212/.246 before the demotion. He wasn't much better for Buffalo, posting a .509 OPS over 14 games. There's very little fantasy value in his profile at this point.

Mariners recalled 1B Daniel Vogelbach from Triple-A Tacoma.

Vogelbach opened the year with the Mariners, but hit just .204/.317.352 over 63 plate appearances before he was demoted. He takes the place of Dee Gordon on the active roster, as Gordon was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured big toe on his right foot. Vogelbach could see some starts at first base and DH while he's with the club.

Mariners placed 2B Dee Gordon on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to May 21 with a fractured right great toe.

In place of Gordon, the Mariners are calling up Dan Vogelbach. It's just another in a long line of bad luck for Seattle, as the switch-hitting leadoff hitter had just made a switch to second base after the suspension of Robinson Cano for 80 games for testing positive for a masking agent. He was off to a strong start on the season, hitting .304 with 25 runs scored and an AL-leading 16 steals in 2018. We won't see him back with the Mariners until June now, at the earliest, and it could sideline him through the All-Star break.

Devin Mesoraco (elbow) won't be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

Not being in the starting lineup is the bad news. There is good news, however, in that Mesoraco is available off the bench today, and there was no structural damage suffered when Marlins third baseman Brian Anderson struck him in the left elbow on his backswing. Since coming over to the Mets from the Reds, Mesoraco has hit three homers over eight games to go along with a .933 OPS.

Kevin Plawecki (hand) will begin a rehab assignment on Thursday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Plawecki will be joined in Vegas by Hansel Robles, who will start a rehab assignment for a sprained right knee. The catcher has been out since April 13 because of a fractured hairline in his right hand, and the Mets recently acquired Devin Mesoraco in the Matt Harvey deal to help compensate for his loss. Assuming no setbacks he should be back near the end of May, and it will be interesting to see how New York splits Plawecki and Mesoraco's playing time going forward.
