Angels acquired LHP Jason Vargas from the Mariners for DH Kendrys Morales.

Vargas posted a cool 3.85 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 141/55 K/BB ratio in 217 1/3 innings this past season for the Mariners. The cavernous dimensions of Safeco Field definitely helped those numbers, but the 29-year-old left-hander is a solid innings eater and should retain a good amount of fantasy value in the Anaheim rotation.

Tommy Pham is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Sunday due to the flu.

Pham has evidently been under the weather for a few days, which could at least partly explain four straight hitless contests that included a golden sombrero Saturday. Harrison Bader will cover center field.

Lorenzo Cain (groin) is not in the Brewers' lineup SUnday.

Cain has been banged up lately, exiting Thursday's game with a hamstring injury and Saturday's game with groin tightness. He's considered day-to-day for now. Christian Yelich will play center field and Hernan Perez is getting a start in right.
Jun 24 - 12:00 PM

Chris Taylor (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's now missed three straight starts with a tight left hamstring. Taylor did come off the bench to deliver a two-run double Saturday, so odds are he won't miss many (if any) more starts. Enrique Hernandez is at shortstop for the third day in a row.

Joey Gallo (hamstring) is in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Gallo departed Saturday's game with a tight left hamstring, but it's evidently an issue he's been managing all season and it won't cost him a start. He's in the designated hitter spot and batting sixth against Jose Berrios and the Twins.
Jun 24 - 11:21 AM

Ryan Braun (finger) is back in the brewers' lineup Sunday.

Braun didn't start the previous five games after undergoing cryotherapy on his right thumb, although he did come off the bench Saturday. He's in left field and batting third versus Luke Weaver and the Cardinals.

Noah Syndergaard (finger) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Sunday.

Everything went well. Syndergaard will throw another bullpen session Tuesday before then throwing a live batting practice session Friday. "Thor" has missed a month of action with a finger injury and presumably will require multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Mets' rotation.
Jun 24 - 11:12 AM

Xander Bogaerts (finger) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Bogaerts sat out Saturday after spraining his left index finger on a slide Friday, but he's fine. He is at shortstop and batting fifth against Marco Gonzales and the Mariners.
Jun 24 - 11:09 AM

Yu Darvish (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A South Bend on Monday.

Darvish has missed over a month of action with a triceps issue, so he figures to require multiple rehab outings before rejoining the Cubs' rotation. He's posted a disappointing 4.95 ERA so far in his first year in Chicago.
Jun 24 - 11:07 AM

Braves placed RHP Arodys Vizcaino on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 18, with right shoulder inflammation.

Vizcaino has battled shoulder soreness off and on all season and hasn't pitched in a week. He'll be eligible to return later this week but might need more time than that. A.J. Minter and Dan Winkler are expected to see save chances while Vizcaino is sidelined. Minter has pitched better lately.
Jun 24 - 10:55 AM

Jean Segura (arm) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

It's the fourth straight game he's missed due to an infection in his arm. The good news is that Segura will work out prior to Sunday's game and could be available off the bench. Andrew Romine is at shortstop.
Jun 24 - 10:47 AM

Kris Bryant is missing a second straight start Sunday because of a sore left shoulder.

The Cubs believe at this time that the ailment is minor, so Bryant should return sometime during the early-week series against the Dodgers unless he has a setback. Ian Happ is at third base Sunday.
