A.J. Pollock (hamstring) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Monday versus the Nationals.
Pollock was given a few days off this weekend with a minor hamstring injury. The 27-year-old outfielder is batting .305/.361/.465 with 11 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 100 games this season for the Diamondbacks. He's one of the most underrated players in baseball.
Brewers SS prospect Jake Gatewood collected his seventh home run Sunday in a win for Rookie-level Helena.
He was 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts in his previous three games. The 19-year-old has a tendency to swing for the fences as evidenced by his high strikeout rate (101 Ks in 275 at-bats). But when he connects, it's a thing of beauty. Gatewood has already improved his average from .227 with Low-A Wisconsin earlier this year to .245 in his first 38 games for Helena.
Kris Bryant (head) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Pirates.
Bryant made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Brewers after experiencing some lightheadedness. A concussion was ruled out after testing.
Giants purchased the contract of INF Kelby Tomlinson from Triple-A Sacramento.
Tomlinson has hit .321/.376/.414 with 21 stolen bases in 97 games this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He'll provide much-needed depth at second base for the Giants, who just lost Joe Panik to lingering lower back inflammation. Tomlinson could have short-term fantasy value if he fights his way into everyday at-bats.
Giants placed 2B Joe Panik on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.
Panik admitted after Sunday's game that he's been bothered by back stiffness for the past couple of weeks. Hopefully a bit of time off will do the trick for the 24-year-old, who's enjoying a breakout 2015 season. Ehire Adrianza and callup Kelby Tomlinson figure to share playing time at second base while Panik is sidelined.
Marlins recalled C Tomas Telis from Triple-A New Orleans.
Telis was just acquired from the Rangers at the July 31 trade deadline. He probably won't see much action behind the plate in Miami and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Brian Ellington from Triple-A New Orleans.
Ellington, 24, was sporting a 2.44 ERA, 0.925 WHIP, and 48/13 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He should do well in mid-relief.
Marlins placed RHP Carter Capps on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.
It's not clear how long he might be out. Capps has used his funky delivery to become one of the most dominant relievers in baseball this year, boasting a 1.16 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 58/7 K/BB ratio in 31 innings.
