Brandon Phillips (groin/leg) is in Monday's lineup against the Cardinals.

Phillips left Sunday's game after experiencing some tightness in his leg/groin area. However, that he's right back in the lineup Monday is a sign that it's pretty minor.

Trea Turner (wrist) took grounders on Tuesday afternoon at Nationals Park.

That's a strong indication that Turner's checkup X-ray on Tuesday showed significant healing, though the star shortstop still hasn't been cleared to throw. He's been out for the last month with a fractured right wrist and there is no timetable yet for his return to Washington's active roster. The target for now is probably mid-August.

Marlins placed 1B Justin Bour on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Bour suffered the injury in Monday night's series opener against the Rangers and will probably miss the next 3-4 weeks. The 29-year-old first baseman leaves behind a stellar .289/.366/.548 batting line with 21 home runs and 63 RBI in 87 games. Tomas Telis has been recalled from the minors in a corresponding roster move.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is hearing that Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario "could be up in a week or so."

The promotion will probably come after the Mets unload some pieces around the July 31 trade deadline. Rosario, 21, is batting .329/.367/.473 with seven home runs, 55 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 59 runs scored in 88 games this season at Triple-A Las Vegas. He was recently ranked the No. 4 overall prospect in the sport by Baseball America.

Matt Carpenter (quad) is back in the Cardinals' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rockies.

Carpenter missed Monday's series opener against Colorado after making an early exit Sunday night against the Cubs due to right quad tightness. He'll start at first base and bat leadoff Tuesday versus right-hander Jon Gray.

Harrison Bader is starting in center field and batting seventh Tuesday in his MLB debut against the Rockies.

Bader will likely be the primary fill-in at that position for the Cardinals while Dexter Fowler recovers from a left forearm strain. The talented 23-year-old was slashing .297/.354/.517 with 19 home runs and nine stolen bases in 97 games this season at Triple-A Memphis and is worth a pickup in standard mixed fantasy leagues.

George Springer (quad) is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Springer left Monday's series opener against the Phillies after experiencing some minor discomfort in his left quad. He's considered day-to-day. Derek Fisher will start in center field and bat sixth Tuesday versus Philadelphia right-hander Nick Pivetta.
Jul 25 - 4:04 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hip) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with High-A Charlotte.

And it sounds like he will be ready for activation from the 60-day disabled list when first eligible on August 9. Kiermaier has been sidelined since the second week of June with a fracture on the right side of his hip.

Cardinals placed OF Dexter Fowler on the 10-day disabled list with a left forearm strain.

It's not clear when he suffered the injury or how long it might put him on the shelf. Harrison Bader has been called up from Triple-A Memphis to fill Fowler's spot on the roster and the 23-year-old outfield prospect could be in line for regular playing time.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Stephen Strasburg is expected to make his next start as of now.

Strasburg left Sunday's start after two innings due to forearm tightness, but doctors examined him and determined that he's fine. Apparently no MRI was needed. The plan is obviously subject to change depending on how he responds to throwing this week -- as they can afford to be cautious -- but this is a good sign for the first-place Nationals.

Chris Davis (illness) remains out of the Orioles' lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

Davis has now missed back-to-back games due to illness and can be considered day-to-day. Trey Mancini is starting at first base Tuesday, with Seth Smith in left and Joey Rickard in right field.
Jul 25 - 3:20 PM

Chris Taylor posted three singles with a run scored and an RBI across four at-bats in Monday's win against the Twins.

Taylor has been on a roll lately, posting three consecutive multi-hit games while collecting two or more hits in eight of his past 10 outings. The outfielder is hitting a ridiculous .525 (21-for-40) with three doubles, three triples and two home runs during the run to push his average from .285 to .318 just since July 9.
