Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that David Ortiz is "likely" to reach the free agent market.

The exclusive negotiation window between teams and their impending free agents closes Saturday, and the Red Sox aren't close enough with Ortiz at this point to beat that deadline. A deal should eventually get done, but other organizations will have the chance to take a run at the veteran slugger. Ortiz hit .318/.415/.611 in 2012.

Matt Holliday has been sent for tests due to fatigue.

He's out of the lineup Monday for the second straight day and not available off the bench, either. Holliday was hitless in his last 11 at-bats before missing the two games. The Yankees could offer an update on the slugger later Monday. Gary Sanchez is in the designated hitter spot and Austin Romine is catching Monday.

Rockies placed OF Carlos Gonzalez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 23, with a right shoulder strain.

It's his non-throwing shoulder, but it's something that's been nagging at him and the Rockies decided it was best to go ahead and DL him. How long CarGo will be sidelined isn't known at this point. Raimel Tapia is in line for regular playing time while Gonzalez is out and is worth scooping up in fantasy leagues.

Rays acquired SS Adeiny Hechavarria from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Ethan Clark and OF Braxton Lee.

The deal was reported earlier Monday and is now official. Tampa will cover the rest of what remains of $4.35 million salary for this season, which is why they gave up very little in the deal. Hechavarria is a career .255/.291/.337 hitter, but he's an elite defender and is under team control through 2018. He'll remain on the disabled list for now but should be activated later this week.

Brandon Finnegan was lifted from Monday's start versus the Cardinals with an apparent injury.

Making his first start for the Reds since mid-April, Finnegan grimaced while delivering an offering to the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the fourth inning. After a talk with the trainer and manager Bryan Price, Finnegan walked off the field without throwing a warm-up pitch. Cincy should have an update on the lefty soon. Finnegan struggled before being pulled, allowing three runs on three hits and four walks over three-plus frames.

Carlos Rodon (biceps) will make his 2017 debut with the White Sox on Wednesday versus the Yankees.

It's the day he'd been speculated to pitch and the club has made it official. Rodon posted a 10.06 ERA and walked nine over 17 innings on his rehab assignment, although he did strike out 17 over 17 innings. Especially given the tough first matchup, fantasy owners should probably keep the southpaw benched for now.
Jun 26 - 5:18 PM

Starlin Castro (wrist) is back in the Yankees' lineup MOnday.

Castro unavailable on Sunday after receiving a cortisone shot in his ailing right wrist, an injury that's bothered him for six weeks. He'll tape the wrist up and attempt to gut it out.
Jun 26 - 5:15 PM

Hanley Ramirez is day-to-day with a sore left knee.

Ramirez was hit by a pitch Sunday and that's the reason he was scratched from Monday's lineup. He should be back in there in a day or two.
Jun 26 - 4:42 PM

Nomar Mazara (forearm) has returned to the Rangers' starting lineup Monday versus the Indians.

Mazara sat out Saturday and Sunday with a bruised right forearm from being hit by a pitch from Aroldis Chapman, but fortunately it's not a long-term issue. He'll bat third in his return.
Jun 26 - 3:44 PM

Willson Contreras will hit leadoff Monday against the Nationals.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon is trying something different with left-hander Gio Gonzalez on the hill for Washington. To his credit, Contreras has been much better against southpaws than against right-handers this season. Anthony Rizzo has been hitting leadoff recently, but he'll slide down to the No. 2 spot on Monday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Joe Maddon's lineup shuffle bodes well for Contreras and Javier Baez, both of whom find themselves in prime spots at very reasonable price tags across the industry. Tonight's slate features a bevy of high-end SPs despite just six games on the docket, so taking the value with Contreras and Baez makes sense in any format. Contreras has his best hard hit rate during the month of June (36.2%) and also owns his lowest ground-ball rate of the season over that span. Baez has flashed his typical power against LHP, sporting a .283 ISO against southpaws to this point.
Jun 26 - 3:41 PM

Joey Gallo (hamstring) has returned to the Rangers' starting lineup Monday against the Indians.

Gallo missed back-to-back starts over the weekend with hamstring soreness, but he's apparently feeling better. He'll bat ninth against Carlos Carrasco.
Jun 26 - 3:27 PM

Rangers activated LHP Cole Hamels from the 10-day disabled list.

Hamels, out since early May with a right oblique strain, allowed one run in 8 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts and two walks through two minor league rehab starts. He'll make his return to the Rangers' rotation Monday against the Indians.
