Jake Odorizzi surrendered a two-run home run to Starlin Castro in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees, the only hit he allowed over seven innings.

Tough loss for Odorizzi, who was almost perfect on the afternoon. Almost. Entering the seventh inning, the 26-year-old right-hander had not allowed a baserunner. He walked Brett Gardner with one out in the frame, though, and Castro promptly followed that up with a two-run home run. Through his first 11 starts (61 2/3 innings), Odorizzi owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 51/17 K/BB ratio. A home start against the Twins shows next on his schedule.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) felt sore after his last rehab start and is "backing off his planned assignments."

It's unclear how big of a setback it could be, but obviously it's not a good development. Ryu tossed four scoreless innings in his last rehab outing and had been scheduled to start on Monday. The Dodgers could have more on the left-hander's status later Sunday.

Carlos Gomez (ribs) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

Gomez will play his fifth and likely final rehab game on Sunday. He's 5-for-17 with one homer in his first four contests as he works his way back from a bruised left rib cage. "I think he's feeling a lot better, which is the number one priority," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Gomez. "Getting production out of him is the second phase of this."
May 29 - 3:35 PM

Glen Perkins (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.

Perkins had to be shut down for a week after feeling stiffness in his pitching shoulder. He will throw off a mound later this week, assuming all goes well. Perkins has been on the shelf since mid-April and obviously still has numerous hurdles to clear before rejoining the Twins' bullpen.
May 29 - 3:03 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) will take batting practice Sunday.

Stanton is out of the lineup again, but he could be back in there as soon as Monday if BP goes well. The outfielder hasn't played since Tuesday because of soreness in his right side.
May 29 - 2:33 PM

Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw a bullpen session Sunday.

Zimmermann said he felt great during the session. He'll throw another bullpen session on Tuesday and if that goes well should be cleared to rejoin the Tigers' rotation later this week.
May 29 - 2:17 PM

Huston Street (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Street made it through an appearance in extended spring training on Saturday with no issues. He could skip a rehab assignment and join the Angels on Monday, although the club hasn't ruled out having him pitch in a minor league game. Joe Smith will return to a setup role when Street is ready.
May 29 - 2:12 PM

Christian Yelich (back) is back in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It will be his first start in over a week, as he's been battling back spasms. Yelich is in left field and hitting third against Julio Teheran and the Braves.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Padres "are fielding calls from a lot of teams" on James Shields but "nothing appears imminent" regarding a trade.

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Saturday that the Padres were discussing a Shields trade with the White Sox and there was "significant momentum" in getting something done. While Heyman appears to be pumping the brakes a bit, it does look like something is cooking with the veteran right-hander. Shields has posted a 3.06 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 56/23 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings this season. He's in the second season of a four-year, $75 million contract and the Padres would likely have to eat some of that money in order to move him.
May 29 - 1:20 PM

Carlos Correa is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

Correa has just four hits over his last 37 at-bats, so he'll get a day off to regroup. Marwin Gonzalez is at shortstop Sunday. The Astros also have Evan Gattis at catcher in place of Jason Castro.
May 29 - 1:14 PM

David Ortiz (foot) was a late scratch from the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Ortiz is a little sore after being hit on the left foot by a pitch Saturday. Consider him day-to-day. Hanley Ramirez will now serve as the designated hitter, with Travis Shaw handling first base and Josh Rutledge entering the lineup at third.
