Yadier Molina is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the catcher. Eric Fryer will receive pitches from Lance Lynn.
May 28 - 12:25 PM

Eric Thames is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Thames is in the midst of a 3-for-34 tailspin at the plate, so he'll get a day off against lefty Patrick Corbin. Jesus Aguilar is at first base. The Brewers also have Jonathan Villar down in the No. 7 spot and Keon Broxton hitting leadoff.

Cardinals purchased the contract of INF Paul DeJong from Triple-A Memphis.

DeJong, 23, was off to a .294/.331/.541 start with 11 homers at Memphis this season after slugging 22 bombs at the Double-A level last year. He doesn't have great plate discipline, but DeJong offers pop and defensive versatility. He could see some starts with Kolten Wong (elbow) sidelined and will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
May 28 - 12:15 PM

Cardinals placed 2B Kolten Wong on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 27, with a left elbow strain.

Wong first injured his elbow a week ago and it apparently just hasn't healed as hoped. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Greg Garcia and Jhonny Peralta will get more playing time with Wong out, and call-up Paul DeJong is also an option.
May 28 - 12:13 PM

Daniel Murphy (illness) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

Murphy hasn't played since Thursday due to a stomach bug. He'll be back in there soon. Wilmer Difo is handling second base again.
May 28 - 12:09 PM

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

Jayson Werth and Matt Wieters are also getting breathers, and Daniel Murphy (illness) remains out, as well. The Nats have Brian Goodwin in right field, Adam Lind in left, Jose Lobaton at catcher and Wilmer Difo at second base.

Orioles recalled RHP Logan Verrett from Triple-A Norfolk.

Verrett is unscored upon in five relief innings with the big club this season. He'll offer length out of the bullpen.
May 28 - 12:00 PM

Orioles optioned RHP Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.

Wilson allowed five runs over his last two relief appearances. Logan Verrett takes his spot in the bullpen.
