Diamondbacks avoided arbitration with RHP Ian Kennedy by agreeing to a one-year, $4.265 million contract.

It's a big raise, as Kennedy was arbitration-eligible for the first time. After finishing fourth in the NL Cy Young voting in 2011, Kennedy fell back with a 4.02 ERA last season. He'll be the Diamondbacks' Opening Day starter in 2013.

Yankees activated RHP Luis Severino from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Severino is recovered from his triceps strain and went three scoreless innings in his one minor league rehab start with High-A Tampa, but there isn't a spot for him right now in the major league rotation. The young right-hander opened the season with a 7.46 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in his first 35 innings (seven starts) with the Yankees.

Nick Hundley (oblique) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment.

If all goes according to plan, he could return to the Rockies' active roster by the weekend. Hundley has been on the disabled list since May 6 because of a left oblique strain. He was batting .273/.407/.523 with two home runs and seven RBI in 17 games before the injury.

Dexter Fowler will take a day off Monday.

Ben Zobrist is leading off and playing right field in the Memorial Day game versus Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood. Jason Heyward is in center and hitting second.
May 30 - 1:37 PM

Trevor Plouffe (knee) is out of the Twins' starting lineup again on Monday afternoon.

The third baseman has some minor knee soreness, but Twins manager Paul Molitor said Plouffe should be available to come off the bench. Eduardo Nunez is starting at the hot corner and batting leadoff versus the A's.
May 30 - 1:28 PM

Phil Hughes has been moved to the bullpen.

His rough start Saturday against the Mariners was apparently the final straw. Hughes gave up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings versus Seattle. Kyle Gibson (shoulder) will come off the disabled list Thursday and start against the Rays.
May 30 - 1:22 PM

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Diamondbacks.

The game is being played at Chase Field under National League rules, so Gattis can't DH. Tyler White is starting at catcher and Jason Castro will be behind the plate.
May 30 - 1:16 PM

Stephen Piscotty has been scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Monday due to food poisoning.

He was supposed to start in right field and bat cleanup in the series opener against Brewers right-hander Junior Guerra. Brandon Moss is now starting in right and batting fifth, with Matt Adams at cleanup.
May 30 - 1:06 PM

Nolan Arenado is getting the day off Monday.

Daniel Descalso will start at third base and bat seventh in the afternoon game against Reds right-hander Dan Straily. Arenado went 0-for-3 on Sunday versus the Giants but still managed to collect his 39th RBI.
May 30 - 12:45 PM

Sergio Romo (elbow) won't be activated from the disabled list before Thursday.

Romo experienced some fatigue after making back-to-back rehab appearances last week at Triple-A Sacramento. But it doesn't sound like a major setback, and Romo is actually slated to pitch this Monday and Tuesday at High-A San Jose before possibly returning to the Giants on Thursday. The setup man has been on the disabled list since April 14 with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm.
May 30 - 12:02 PM

Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is expected to make at least two minor league rehab starts.

His first rehab start is scheduled for Thursday at High-A Frederick, and he'll probably go four innings in that one. Gallardo has been on the disabled list since April 23 with right shoulder and biceps tendinitis. He threw a successful simulated game Saturday and made it through another bullpen session Monday without issue. The right-hander had a 7.00 ERA through his first 18 innings (four starts) this season with the O's.
May 30 - 11:42 AM

Ryan Braun (neck) remains out of the Brewers' starting lineup Monday against the Cardinals.

Braun has now missed three straight games with stiffness and soreness in his neck. He's also been battling back and wrist issues. Alex Presley is starting in left field and batting sixth on Monday afternoon with the Cardinals throwing right-hander Carlos Martinez.
