Andrelton Simmons will undergo an MRI on his injured right thumb Monday in Atlanta.

It's being called a sprain for now, but there's some concern that the injury is more severe. "I'm hoping, but I'm always a glass half-full kind of guy," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Sunday when asked whether his shortstop is facing an extended absence. Simmons suffered the thumb injury Saturday while diving for a ball.

Jon Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners.

There have been rumors for weeks that Gray was on the verge of a callup, and the well-built 23-year-old right-hander is now finally getting his shot. Gray, the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque. He's MLB-ready and one of the top young starters in baseball, though Coors Field can be hell on pitchers of all profiles. Fantasy owners might want to take it start-by-start with him out of the gate.

Pablo Sandoval (forearm) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Sandoval hasn't started a game since taking a pitch off his left forearm last Thursday evening. He just has a bruise and should be good to go this week.

Cardinals sent 1B Dan Johnson outright to Triple-A Memphis.

The veteran first baseman passed through waivers unclaimed and has opted to remain with the Cardinals as opposed to electing free agency. The 35-year-old is hitting .242/.350/.427 with 11 homers and 44 RBI at Triple-A this season.

Cardinals sent RHP Marcus Hatley outright to Triple-A Memphis.

Hatley passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment on Friday. He'll continue to provide bullpen depth for the Cardinals at Triple-A.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that the organization will have a discussion about the rotation spot of Kyle Lohse.

Lohse was handed his 13th loss of the season on Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits over just 4 1/3 innings against the Cubs. He owns a troublesome 6.31 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 86/30 K/BB ratio on the season and has shown no signs of figuring things out or stringing a few good starts together. It's quite shocking that he has remained in the rotation for as long as he has.

Lucas Duda continued his home run barrage on Sunday, blasting a two-run homer off Jordan Zimmermann in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Nationals.

With the victory, the Mets completed their sweep of the three-game weekend series against the Nationals and pulled even with their division rival for the top spot in the National League East. Duda has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent days, blasting nine home runs and driving home 12 runs in his last eight ballgames. He finished the night 2-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.348/.489 with 21 homers and 50 RBI on the season.

Curtis Granderson blasted his 17th home run of the season as the Mets completed their three-game sweep of the Nationals on Sunday.

Granderson's two-run blast off Jordan Zimmermann got the Mets on the board in the third inning. He would immediately be followed by a solo shot from teammate Daniel Murphy, a single from Yoenis Cespedes and a two-run bomb off the bat of Lucas Duda to provide the extent of the Mets offense. Granderson has quietly had a very strong season atop the Mets lineup, slashing .254/.347/.443 with 17 long balls and 38 RBI.
