ESPN's Buster Olney reports the Blue Jays are "close" to naming their next manager.

According to Olney, two of the final names being discussed are Jim Tracy and Jim Riggleman. This would seemingly fit the Jays' reported desire to hire a manager with a track record, as both have previous major league experience. The Rockies parted ways with Tracy this offseason after a franchise-worst 64 wins in 2012. Riggleman spent last year managing the Reds' Double-A affiliate.

Jameson Taillon (cancer) threw 25 pitches off a mound Tuesday.

Taillon has made encouraging progress from his May 8 surgery for suspected testicular cancer, though Pirates trainer Todd Tomczyk cautioned Tuesday that this is still very much a day-to-day situation. There's no real timetable for Taillon's return to the active major league roster.

Carlos Correa is out of the Astros' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Tigers.

Correa is 0-for-8 with three strikeouts over his last two games. Marwin Gonzalez will play shortstop and bat fifth Tuesday versus Detroit right-hander Jordan Zimmermann. Evan Gattis is also on the bench Tuesday for Houston.

Nationals recalled RHP Joe Ross from Triple-A Syracuse.

Ross will rejoin the Nationals' starting rotation on Tuesday night against the Mariners after tossing seven innings of one-run ball in his last start with Triple-A Syracuse. The young right-hander has struggled this season at the major league level, but he still carries a fair amount of fantasy upside and he'll give owners two starts this week.

Trevor Story is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Phillies.

Story was activated from the disabled list Tuesday afternoon after missing two weeks with a left shoulder strain, but he's on the bench versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Alexi Amarista will start at shortstop and bat seventh for the visiting Rockies. Story has posted a disappointing .180/.289/.396 batting line in 33 games this season.
May 23 - 3:56 PM

Brett Gardner is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

Gardner hit another homer on Monday, but he'll take a seat Tuesday against left-hander Danny Duffy. Aaron Hicks will start in left field and bat second.
May 23 - 3:25 PM

Mariners activated 2B Robinson Cano from the 10-day disabled list.

Cano is a welcome sight for the Mariners, who have lost three in a row. The veteran second baseman has been out since May 10 with a right quad strain. He returns to a .296/.362/.533 batting line with eight homers and 28 RBI over 34 games.
May 23 - 3:07 PM

Red Sox purchased the contract of 1B Sam Travis from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox sent down Hector Velazquez to clear a spot on the active roster. Travis got off to a slow start in April, but he was batting .333/.389/.561 with three home runs and 13 RBI this month. He's likely to see most of his at-bats against left-handers in his first stint in the majors.
May 23 - 2:52 PM

Carlos Santana will make another start in right field Tuesday against the Reds.

Santana had quite the scare in right field on Monday, but fortunately he's fine. He'll move back to first base on Wednesday when the series shifts to Cleveland.
May 23 - 2:49 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Binghamton.

Cabrera presumably won't need much time before he's deemed ready to return. The veteran shortstop has been sidelined since May 13 due to a lingering injury to his left thumb. Jose Reyes has been handling the bulk of the shortstop duties with Cabrera on the shelf.
May 23 - 2:32 PM

Craig Mish of Fantasy Sports Radio reports that the Padres are calling up prospect right-hander Dinelson Lamet.

The expectation, according to Mish, is that Lamet will make his major league debut Thursday against the Mets. The 24-year-old owns a 3.23 ERA and 50/20 K/BB ratio in 39 innings over eight starts with Triple-A El Paso this season. The walks are a concern and some have speculated that he could be bullpen-bound in the long-term, but he has shown an ability to miss bats. He could be worth a try in deeper fantasy formats.
May 23 - 1:38 PM

Zack Greinke held the White Sox to one run over 8 2/3 innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win.

Greinke nearly had a complete game, but manager Torey Lovullo lifted the right-hander after Jose Abreu doubled with two outs in the top of the ninth. Greinke was brilliant, yielding just four hits and striking out 12 batters against just one walk. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 2.82 ERA and he leads all National League pitchers in strikeouts with 78. A road start against the Brewers is next.
