Orioles activated RHP Ubaldo Jimenez from the paternity leave list.
Jimenez was away from the O's for three days as his wife gave birth. He could start Thursday against the Twins, but if that doesn't happen it's back to long relief.
Ryan Vogelsong (eye) will make another rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Indianapolis.
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said he's hoping Vogelsong can go seven innings, or around 90-95 pitches. The veteran right-hander yielded two unearned runs over four innings last Wednesday at Triple-A Indy, throwing 60 pitches. He's been sidelined since taking a Jordan Lyles pitch to the face on May 23.
Taijuan Walker (foot) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Wednesday.
Mariners manager Scott Servais told reporters that he wants to see Walker "get after it" to really test his right foot. A minor league rehab game could follow if the workout goes smoothly. Walker has been on the disabled list since July 5 with lingering foot tendinitis.
According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Indians have expressed interest in Eduardo Nunez of the Twins.
Nunez has been in a steady state of regression for a couple of months, but he's still enjoying the best year of his career by far, batting .298/.324/.446 with 12 home runs, 46 RBI, and 24 stolen bases in 88 games. The 29-year-old can also play all around the diamond defensively, which fits well with this current Cleveland roster. Nunez is making $1.48 million in 2016 and carries one more year of arbitration eligibility in 2017.
Twins 2B prospect Travis Blankenhorn matched a career-high with four RBI Monday in a win for Rookie-level Elizabethton.
He paced the Twins with a double and a pair of home runs. The 19-year-old has been raking lately with 11 hits and seven RBI over his last six contests. During that span, his season average has climbed from .274 to .310. Blankenhorn leads the Appalachian League in runs scored (24) and is also second in RBI (26) and third in home runs (eight).
White Sox OF prospect Mason Robbins tallied a career-high five hits Monday in a win for High-A Winston-Salem.
All of his hits were singles. Robbins has contributed at least two hits in seven of his last 10 games. He's hit .477 during that span while raising his average from .296 to .318. The 23-year-old leads the Carolina League in batting average and hits this year but his on base percentage sits at a relatively low .333 thanks to an unusually low walk rate (eight walks in 370 plate appearances).
J.T. Realmuto is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.
He's presumably getting a routine day of rest. Jeff Mathis will start behind the plate and catch Tom Koehler.
Blue Jays optioned RHP Ryan Tepera to Triple-A Buffalo.
The move clears the way for the newly-acquired Melvin Upton on the active roster. Tepera was just called up over the weekend, but didn't make an appearance during his brief stay with the big club.
