Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Joey Votto underwent a "minor procedure" Friday to remove a piece of floating cartilage from his surgically-repaired left knee.

According to Groeschen, the surgery will require an additional 7-10 days of recovery time. Votto was originally expected to miss three to four weeks, but is now looking like a long shot to return this month. While his season isn't in jeopardy, he'll need to make notable progress to be activated before the first half of September.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers have discussed keeping Jurickson Profar around after Rougned Odor's suspension ends.

Hanser Alberto would also remain on the active roster and the Rangers would go with a seven-man bullpen. Profar is 6-for-18 (.333) since his callup on Friday and he was slashing 284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals in 189 plate appearances this season with Triple-A Round Rock. The former top prospect might have finally found some footing at the major league level, though it's still pretty loose.

Trayce Thompson (back) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Cubs.

He will start in left field and bat fifth versus Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Thompson missed a couple of games in a row with some minor soreness in his back.

James Loney has officially been added to the Mets' 25-man roster.

Loney was acquired from the Padres on Saturday for cash and will be thrown into the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday night against the White Sox. He should start regularly at first base against right-handed pitching, at least until Lucas Duda (back) returns. Loney was hitting the ball well at Triple-A El Paso before the trade and is worthy of consideration in deeper fantasy formats now that he's in a good position for playing time.

David Wright was given a pain-killing injection for his neck injury on Tuesday.

The veteran third baseman revealed to reporters Monday that he's been diagnosed with a herniated disk in his neck and he is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday night. The hope is this pain-killing injection will help him avoid the 15-day disabled list.

Red Sox placed OF Jackie Bradley, Jr. on the paternity leave list.

Bradley can remain on the paternity leave list for 24-to-72 hours. Rusney Castillo will replace him on the active roster.

Matt Duffy (wrist) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Duffy took a pitch off his left wrist during Monday's game, but fortunately X-rays came back negative. The hope is that he'll be ready to return in the next day or two. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at third base.
May 31 - 3:30 PM

Bryce Harper (knee) is absent from Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

Harper suffered a right knee contusion when he was hit by a pitch on Monday and will get a day of rest. Consider him day-to-day. Jayson Werth will slide over to right field in his absence while Clint Robinson will get a start in left.
May 31 - 3:26 PM

Carlos Carrasco will be activated from the disabled list to start Thursday against the Royals.

Carrasco, out since late-April with a hamstring strain, tossed four innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts in his lone minor league rehab start with Double-A Akron on Saturday. He'll be limited to around 80 pitches in his return to action.

May 31 - 3:21 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' lineup again Tuesday against the Pirates.

Stanton has now missed seven straight starts due soreness in his right side, but the Marlins continue to say that he's not too far off. Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff.
