Jaime Garcia said he is "really encouraged" with the progress of his left shoulder.

Garcia opted for rest and rehab instead of surgery to treat a small tear in his pitching shoulder. He's on the same schedule as the Cardinals' other starters and estimated that Tuesday's bullpen session was his seventh or eighth this offseason. "I'm really encouraged," Garcia said. "I've been saying this the whole time. I'm feeling strong and healthy. Everything went this offseason as good as it could have gone. I'm at a point where I worked so hard this offseason, and I'm working hard right now and just taking it one day at a time."

Austin Jackson left Sunday's game versus the Astros with a right ankle injury.

Jackson looked to have rolled the ankle when he stepped on Roberto Hernandez's foot at first base. He needed assistance as he limped off to the clubhouse. It certainly looked like an injury that could require a disabled list stint, but the Mariners should have more on his injury later Sunday.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will perform running drills for the second straight day on Sunday.

It's certainly a great sign. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Friday that he expected Puig to begin a rehab assignment soon, and it's looking like he'll be activated when first eligible on May 10 as long as he can avoid a setback. Puig sports a .279/.380/.465 batting line with a pair of homers over 11 games for Los Angeles this season.

Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock later this week.

Hamilton's surgically-repaired shoulder is no longer an issue, but he's being worked back into playing shape. He's been training at the Rangers' spring training complex and faced live pitching Saturday for the first time. The big club expects Hamilton to join them towards the end of the month.

J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Monday.

He'll play three games for the Baysox and then will likely be activated from the disabled list on Friday if all goes well. Hardy has been out all season with a left shoulder strain but has made progress recently after being given a cortisone injection.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is expected to throw live batting practice at some point this week.

Ryu has been throwing off a mound for a week and is nearing the next step. A rehab assignment will be just around the corner after he faces hitters. Ryu is still weeks away from a return, but he's finally showing some real progress. The Dodgers could really use him after losing Brandon McCarthy (elbow).
May 3 - 11:30 AM

Mat Latos (hamstring) has been cleared to start on Tuesday versus the Nationals.

Latos had to exit his last outing with a strained left hamstring, but he's apparently made a nice recovery over the last few days. The veteran right-hander is off to a disappointing start this season with a 6.86 ERA over his first five starts.
May 3 - 11:25 AM

Denard Span (abdomen) is back in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

Span missed the previous two contests after being lifted from Thursday's game when he felt soreness in the area where he had core muscle surgery. It's doubtful that he's 100 percent, but it appears the outfielder will gut it out.
May 3 - 11:13 AM

Aramis Ramirez (hamstring) is back in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Ramirez missed a couple games with a sore hamstring, but he's ready to roll now. The third baseman has struggled overall this season but has been heating up of late, sporting a .375/.423/.708 batting line with a couple homers over his last eight games.
May 3 - 11:09 AM

Lorenzo Cain will begin serving a two-game suspension on Sunday after dropping his appeal.

It's a little surprising that he'd drop it now and miss a game versus the division-rival Tigers, but obviously the Royals determined it was best to get it out of the way now. Cain will return to action on Wednesday against the Indians. Jarrod Dyson is handling center field Sunday.
May 3 - 11:06 AM

Greg Holland (pectoral) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Holland got through a simulated game on Saturday with no issues. As long as he bounces back OK, he'll resume his closing duties on Tuesday, pushing Wade Davis back to a setup role. "I felt really good," Holland said. "It was exciting. I was able to execute most of my pitches. With that layoff, without really getting off the mound and facing hitters, it was very encouraging."
May 3 - 10:59 AM

Rays placed OF Desmond Jennings on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with left knee bursitis.

The club had been hoping Jennings could return to action over the weekend, but he simply hasn't progressed as hoped. The backdated DL move means he'll be eligible to return on May 11, although it's not a given that he'll be ready at that time. Brandon Guyer will continue to see extra playing time while Jennings is out, and Joey Butler could also get a shot.
