Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said that he is not looking to trade Starlin Castro.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported Thursday that the Cubs have made everyone outside of Jeff Samardzija available for trade, but Epstein said Castro is not on the table. "Starlin Castro is the type of player we're looking to build around," said Epstein. "There has been no trade consideration with him, whatsoever." Epstein said earlier this week that he doesn't believe any player is truly untouchable, but that there are certain core pieces that you would have to be blown away to move. It's fair to say Castro qualifies as one of those pieces.

Ryan Braun was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Braves due to tightness in his right trapezius muscle.

Braun always seems to be banged up and has battled minor injuries throughout his career, with 2017 being no exception. It sounds as though it's the type of injury that will be day-to-day, but look for an update on his status from the Brewers after Sunday's game.

Noah Syndergaard will travel back to New York to undergo an MRI for a possible strained right lat.

Whether the biceps tendinitis Syndergaard dealt with this past week led to him overcompensating and leading to a new injury isn't known, but either way this is obviously not good news. The big right-hander had good velocity Sunday in his start versus the Nationals, but his command was off and he was eventually pulled in the second inning. He'll go on the disabled list even if the MRI doesn't reveal anything too serious, but obviously this has the potential to be something that keeps Syndergaard on the shelf for a while.

Avisail Garcia departed Sunday's game in Detroit with left groin tightness.

Garcia first felt tightness during Saturday's game but played through it. However, it came back Sunday and this time it was enough to force him from the game. The White Sox should offer an update on the hot-hitting outfielder after the game.

Rockies activated INF/OF Ian Desmond from the 10-day disabled list.

Desmond looked so good during at-bats in extended spring training that he's making a return a little earlier than expected. He's starting in left field Sunday and will see plenty of playing time there with Mark Reynolds hitting so well as the first baseman. David Dahl (rib) is due back before long, so manager Bud Black will have some difficult decisions.

The Dodgers' plan for the time being is to keep Rich Hill (blister) in the rotation.

The club had mulled over a move to the bullpen, with the thinking that using Hill in shorter doses would help to keep his nagging blister issue in control. That move may still be in the cards down the line, but the plan for now is to keep the lefty in the rotation. Hill will begin a rehab assignment Thursday. "I know we talked about it," manager Dave Roberts said, "but for the short term and the near term, we’re going to build him back up as a starter and insert him when we feel he’s healthy and can sustain health."

Joc Pederson (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday or Thursday

Pederson ran the bases Sunday, clearing the way for his return to game action. He'll be activated on Friday if all goes well. The Dodgers still plan to send Cody Bellinger back to the minors once Pederson returns.

Aaron Sanchez left Sunday's start versus the Rays after just one inning after splitting the nail on his right middle finger again.

Sanchez was making his first start since returning from minor surgery to remove part of the nail from his finger. He's almost surely headed back to the disabled list, but the Blue Jays should have more on his status after the game.

Lucas Duda felt a "twinge" in his left elbow in his first rehab game with High-A St. Lucie on Friday, according to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson.

It explains why he wasn't in St. Lucie's lineup Saturday or Sunday. It doesn't appear to be a major setback at this point, but Duda will be shut down until at least Tuesday. We should know more about his potential return later this week.

Aaron Nola felt continued soreness in his lower back following a bullpen session Friday.

The hope had been that Nola would be ready to return to the Phillies' rotation on Monday, but that obviously won't happen now. "After he completed it, he had some symptoms, some soreness or tightness, I guess," manager Pete Mackanin said. "It was decided he will not make his start on Monday. He will be reevaluated to determine his next bullpen. A couple of days ago he said he felt great and then [Friday] not so great. He's improving but he's not 100 percent. There's something bugging him. We're just going to take it day to day. We're being cautious with him this early in the season." With Nola's return date looking uncertain, Nick Pivetta could be in the Philly rotation for a while.

Chris Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore right elbow.

Davis' elbow is still a little tender after he was hit by a pitch on Saturday. He still wanted to play Sunday, so it's probably safe to assume he'll be back in there Monday. Trey Mancini has moved from right field to first base and Craig Gentry entered the lineup in right.

Rajai Davis (hamstring) is on track to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Davis has batted only .214/.262/.375 in the early going for the Athletics, but he'll get his center field job back upon activation and should also spend plenty of time in the leadoff spot.
