Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) has done some very light throwing as well as strengthening exercises.
Iwakuma is nursing a Grade 1 right lat strain. The right-hander is expected to be on the shelf for 2-4 weeks, but the fact that he's already doing some throwing again is a good sign.
Anthony Rendon (knee) was scratched from a rehab game at Double-A Harrisburg on Monday due to fatigue.
This is after he already had a scheduled day of rest on Sunday. It doesn't appear to anything to be alarmed about at this point, though, so we should still expect Rendon back with the Nationals by this weekend. He'll play both second and third base with the big club.
Rockies activated RHP David Hale from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Hale is over his oblique injury but will have to work his way back to the majors. He figures to be used in Albuquerque's rotation.
Rockies placed RHP Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with right triceps inflammation.
It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously it's good news that he appears to have no structural damage. John Axford picked up a save last week while Ottavino was unavailable and looks like the guy to own in fantasy leagues.
Rangers recalled LHP Alex Claudio from Triple-A Round Rock.
He's taking Tanner Scheppers' spot in the bullpen. Claudio posted a 2.92 ERA over 15 relief appearances for the Rangers last season.
Rangers optioned RHP Tanner Scheppers to Triple-A Round Rock.
Scheppers returned from the disabled list barely over a week ago and has now been sent out after allowing five runs over four relief innings. He'll get another chance later this season.
Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Monday that it's possible Domonic Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley once activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.
"I don't know that he's ready (to face major league pitching)," Sandberg said of Brown, who is hitting just .188/.298/.292 on his rehab assignment. The Phillies must do something with the outfielder, as his rehab clock runs out after Tuesday. It's hard to believe they wouldn't think Brown is a better option than Jeff Francoeur in right field, but it wouldn't be the first time Philly has made an odd decision.
Brian Duensing (intercostal) threw a bullpen session Monday with no issues.
He'll next throw a simulated game on Thursday. Assuming he gets through that without any problems, Duensing will be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Saturday.
