The Astros will call up right-hander Jordan Jankowski from Triple-A Fresno on Monday, reports Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.

The Astros have yet to make an official announcement and they will have to make a corresponding roster move in order to add him to the 40-man roster. Jankowski, 28, owns a 1.42 ERA with four saves and a 22/9 K/BB ratio over 19 innings in Triple-A this season. This will be his first call-up to the majors.

Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) didn't travel with High-A Dunedin for their road trip over the weekend.

In other words, Tulowitzki didn't suffer a setback with his hamstring. The 32-year-old is 3-for-8 (.375) with two RBI and two walks through three rehab games and will play in another one on Monday. However, it's unclear when he'll be activated. Tulowitzki has been sidelined since April 21 because of a right hamstring strain.

Junior Guerra (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list this week.

Good news for the first-place Brewers. Guerra, who went down on Opening Day with a right calf strain, allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and two walks in his second rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Colorado Springs. The Brewers haven't pinpointed a specific day, but he should return during the team's four-game series against the Diamondbacks later this week. Guerra was the team's best starter last season, putting up a 2.81 ERA over 20 starts.

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored Sunday in a rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

D'Arnaud, who is working back from a bone bruise in his wrist, is now 5-for-14 (.357) during his minor league rehab assignment. The expectation is that he will stick around to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he's not far off. Rene Rivera has been red-hot during his absence, so it will be interesting to see how Terry Collins balances the playing time moving forward.

Craig Mish of Fantasy Sports Radio reports that the Padres are considering calling up pitching prospect Dinelson Lamet to join their rotation this week.

Lamet, 24, has put together a 3.23 ERA and 50/20 K/BB ratio over 39 innings at Triple-A El Paso this season. He has control issues but also boasts a nice arm and could potentially be worth a look in deeper fantasy formats. He was ranked before the season by MLB.com as the Padres' No. 10 prospect.

According to David Lennon of Newsday, the Mets are open to activating Steven Matz (elbow) after Tuesday's start with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Matz, who is working his way back from a flexor strain, allowed one run on two hits and two walks over three innings in his first rehab start at High-A St. Lucie last Thursday. Ideally he would get at least two more starts in the minors, but the state of the Mets' rotation could have them move up the timeline. Either way, Matz should be stashed away in most fantasy leagues.

The Dodgers are experimenting with using outfielder Brett Eibner as a pitcher.

The Dodgers still plan to use Eibner primarily as an outfielder, but proving himself as a pitcher could help him justify a roster spot. He has thrown several bullpen sessions to build arm strength and work on his secondary pitches. "He’s got a great arm," said Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt. "We’ll start fine-tuning a little bit and see if there’s something there." Eibner, 28, played the outfield and pitched at the University of Arkansas from 2008-10.

Phil Hughes will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with stiffness in his throwing shoulder.

Hughes gave up five runs -- including three homers -- over just four innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals. He said after the game that he's feeling "a lot of the same symptoms I was experiencing last year" prior to surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but more should be known after he's examined on Monday. Hughes has struggled with a 5.74 ERA over nine starts this season.
