Latest Headlines

Paul Goldschmidt was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Cubs due to a sore back.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Mike Jacobs will fill in at first base.

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Joe Mauer (concussion) being activated from the disabled list on Thursday is looking "increasingly likely."

Great to hear. Mauer was placed on the 7-day concussion DL a little over a week ago, but he's feeling much better and will hit in the batting cage again Sunday. If that goes well, he'll work out on the field Monday. Mauer has put up a .283/.404/.355 batting line with one home run over 38 games for the Twins this season.

Ronald Acuna was lifted from Sunday's game against the Red Sox with a left knee injury.

Acuna looked to hyperextend his knee after crossing first base, flipped over and went down in pain. He was able to walk off the field on his own, which would seem to be a good sign, but he did have a noticeable limp. The Braves are only saying for now that Acuna is dealing with knee and lower back pain, but the outfielder is surely headed for tests and an update on his condition could be available later Sunday.

Clayton Kershaw (biceps) is expected to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation on Thursday against the Phillies.

Manager Dave Roberts would only say that Kershaw was a "viable" option to start Thursday, but it sounds like he'll return that day unless he has some sort of setback. Kershaw threw four innings in a simulated game Saturday and figures to throw a bullpen session Tuesday ahead of Thursday's start. The three-time Cy Young winner has been out since early May with left biceps tendinitis.

Padres acquired RHP Phil Hughes, cash and the 74th overall pick in the 2018 Draft from the Twins for C Janigson Villalobos.

The Padres essentially just bought a draft pick here, as they're reportedly picking up a little less than $7.5 million of the roughly $22 million Hughes is still owed, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. Hughes is expected to report to the big league club on Monday but probably isn't a good bet to stick around very long. The veteran right-hander holds a 5.99 ERA since the beginning of 2016 and was designated for assignment last week.
May 27 - 2:08 PM

Byron Buxton (head) is in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

Buxton left Saturday's game after slamming into the outfield wall. He suffered a cut on his head and is surely sore but is feeling well enough to give it a go in this one. Buxton is in center field and batting ninth against Mike Leake and the Mariners.
May 27 - 2:00 PM

Jean Segura (head) is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

Segura went through concussion tests after being removed from Saturday's game versus the Twins when he was kicked in the head. He still has to pass additional test before being cleared to return, but he did say Sunday that he's feeling better. Zach Vincej has been added to the taxi squad in case Segura does wind up going on the disabled list. Andrew Romine will handle shortstop Sunday.
May 27 - 1:29 PM

Mookie Betts was a late scratch from the Red Sox' lineup Sunday due to left side tightness.

The Red Sox are calling Betts day-to-day for the time being, but if it's an oblique injury it's certainly something that could wind up sending him to the disabled list. Perhaps the team will offer more on the star's condition after the game. Blake Swihart has replaced Betts in the lineup and will be making his first start in the outfield since 2016.
May 27 - 1:05 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (hip) could begin a rehab assignment by next weekend.

Cespedes began a running program on Friday but isn't quite game-ready yet. He's already been sidelined for the last two weeks with a strained right hip flexor and will miss at least another week of action. Brandon Nimmo has been the Mets' main left fielder in Cespedes' absence.
May 27 - 12:32 PM

Todd Frazier (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas in the next few days.

Frazier has been upping his workouts lately and not had any setbacks with his strained left hamstring. It's unclear how many rehab games he will require before being activated, but he's getting close to a return as long as he keeps trending in the right direction.
May 27 - 12:18 PM

Mike Soroka (shoulder) is on track to begin a rehab assignment later this week.

Soroka was placed on the disabled list a couple weeks ago after feeling tightness in the back of his shoulder during a start, but an MRI came back negative and he will throw another bullpen session Sunday or Monday. It's unclear how many rehab starts he'll require, but the young righty should go back into the Braves' rotation once he's ready.
May 27 - 11:57 AM

Mark Trumbo (knee) could be back in the Orioles' lineup Monday.

Trumbo is missing a fifth straight start Sunday, but he might be available off the bench. He was diagnosed with arthritis and chondromalacia in his right knee but has made a quicker-than-expected recovery.
