Pablo Sandoval will require surgery on his ailing left shoulder.

Sandoval got the bad news Monday during a follow-up exam with Dr. James Andrews. The extent of the damage isn't yet known, but Travis Shaw is now locked in as the regular third baseman. Sandoval is still owed $53 million from 2017-2019 with $17 million club option or a $5 million buyout for 2020.

Domingo Santana was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Angels with right shoulder tightness.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Alex Presley will start in his place in right field and hit leadoff.
May 2 - 7:03 PM

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Brutal news for Mesoraco, who was hoping to rebound after being limited to 23 games last season due to a torn labrum in his hip. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined or if surgery will be required, but he'll obviously be facing a lengthy absence. Tucker Barnhart will likely handle the bulk of the catching duties for now.

Dodgers right-hander Josh Ravin has been suspended 80 games without pay after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

The story was first reported by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. Ravin tested positive for Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2. The 28-year-old was already on the 60-day disabled list after breaking his left (non-throwing) arm in a car accident during spring training. He's the third player to receive a PED suspension in the past two weeks, joining Dee Gordon and Chris Colabello.

Angel Pagan will miss a minimum of 4-5 days with a Grade 1 strain of his left hamstring.

Pagan strained his hamstring while running the bases on Sunday. As of now, he's expected to avoid the disabled list. The Giants will go with a combination of Mac Williamson and Gregor Blanco in left field while he's sidelined.
May 2 - 6:04 PM

Carlos Gomez (ribs) did some baseball activity on Monday.

It's good news for Gomez, who will miss his third straight game Monday with soreness in his left rib cage. Astros manager A.J. Hinch is optimistic that he'll be able to return during the team's series against the Twins this week.
May 2 - 5:37 PM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that Jason Heyward is out of Monday's lineup with a sore right wrist.

There's no indication that it's serious, but it provides more context on his struggles. The high-priced outfielder went 0-for-17 on the team's recent homestand and is batting just .211/.317/.256 overall.
May 2 - 5:28 PM

Lance McCullers (shoulder) threw 62 pitches over 4 2/3 innings Monday in an extended spring training game.

McCullers will still have to make it through a bullpen session, but the expectation is that he'll resume a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday. It's unclear how many starts he'll need before joining the Astros. His rehab from shoulder discomfort already had to be put on hold once.
May 2 - 5:23 PM

Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

He's just getting the day off. Christian Colon will cover third base and bat eighth versus left-hander Gio Gonzalez.
May 2 - 4:58 PM

Ervin Santana (back) is scheduled to throw 30 pitches in a simulated game on Tuesday.

Santana landed on the disabled list late last month with a lower back strain, but he made it through a bullpen session on Sunday with no issues. If all goes well on Tuesday, the plan calls for him to be activated this Saturday versus the White Sox.
May 2 - 4:53 PM

Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment in the next day or two.

Inciarte, who injured his left hamstring last month, ramped up his running last week and appears ready for game action. If all goes according to plan, he could rejoin the Braves this weekend.
