Neftali Feliz (elbow) could be sidelined until the All-Star break.

Feliz was placed on the disabled list Monday with right elbow inflammation. He'll be shut down for a month, after which he'll begin a throwing program. This will likely sideline him until the All-Star break, if not longer. The 24-year-old right-hander was facing an innings limit in his first season in the rotation anyway, so this might not be the worst thing for him given that there's no structural damage. Scott Feldman will take his spot in the starting rotation and is worth adding in AL-only formats.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Miguel Cabrera has been dealing with a "cranky ankle."

That's part of the reason for his absence Monday, though Ausmus said it's only a minor thing. Cabrera should return to the Tigers' starting lineup on Tuesday night. Hernan Perez is starting at first base for Detroit in Monday's series opener at Oakland's Coliseum.

Brett Lawrie is out of the A's lineup again Monday.

Athletics activated UTIL Ben Zobrist from the 15-day disabled list.

Zobrist wound up missing just under four weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery. It was initially expected that he would be out until the middle of June. The versatile 33-year-old had batted .240/.304/.400 with one home run, five doubles, eight RBI, and eight runs scored through his first 14 games this season.

Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

Hamilton is starting in left field and batting fifth Monday in his first game for the Rangers since the 2012 American League Wild Card round. The 34-year-old batted .364/.391/.545 with five doubles, one home run, six RBI, and nine runs scored on his 12-game minor league rehab assignment, and he's a good bet for high-level fantasy production back with Texas. Get him active in all standard fantasy leagues.

Jose Iglesias (knee) is not in the Tigers' starting lineup Monday afternoon in Oakland.

Dixon Machado will get the nod at shortstop and bat ninth. Iglesias injured his knee Saturday when he collided with Chris Carter of the Astros. An MRI ruled out any structural damage, but he has a bad bruise.

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

After seven weeks of trying to keep Mesoraco active despite the hip injury, the Reds have finally given in and thrown him on the disabled list. He hadn't made a start behind the plate since April 11 and when he tried to squat last week, he felt renewed discomfort in his hip. Mesoraco is now considering season-ending surgery.

David Wright is headed to California to have his back examined by a specialist.

Wright was diagnosed last week with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column, and the veteran third baseman is trying to figure out a treatment plan. More should be known in the next couple of days. It's probably going to be a while before we see him return to the Mets' active roster.
