Albert Pujols (knee) will make his spring debut Tuesday as the designated hitter.

Well, that's a pleasant surprise. Pujols had offseason knee surgery and wasn't expected to appear in a game until a little later this month, but he's apparently feeling good.

Carlos Beltran was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers with a tight right hamstring.

He'll head for a precautionary MRI to determine the extent of the damage. The Yankees can't afford to have his bat out of the lineup long, as the veteran slugger is hitting .297/.336/.570 with 19 homers and 53 RBI in a resurgent season.

Joe Panik was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Tuesday due to concussion-like symptoms.

Panik was hit in the head 10 days ago and passed his concussion tests on three consecutive days, but these things tend to linger. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Giants give him a couple of days off. Ramiro Pena will start in his place and bat seventh against Kendall Graveman and the A's.

Aledmys Diaz is expected to miss a few games until the swelling above his right eye subsides.

Diaz is with the club and in good spirits after getting struck above the eye by a foul ball during Monday's game against the Royals. He went through the full concussion protocol after Monday's game, with everything coming back negative. Greg Garcia is starting in his place on Tuesday and should continue to see action until Diaz is cleared to return.

Trevor Story (finger) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Story tested out his injured finger before the game and it appears to have held up just fine. He'll bat second in a premium matchup at home against Blue Jays' southpaw JA Happ.

Athletics activated OF Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the A's lineup immediately, batting third and playing right field against Albert Suarez and the Giants. Reddick had been sidelined since May 19 due to a fractured left thumb. He returns to a .322/.394/.466 line with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Clayton Kershaw is heading to Los Angeles to visit a back specialist.

Kershaw, who has been battling lower back discomfort for weeks, is hopeful that he'll make his scheduled start against the Rockies on Friday. If he's forced to miss any significant amount of time, it could be devastating to the Dodgers and fantasy owners alike.

Justin Turner (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Tuesday.

Turner was removed from Monday night's game due to a hamstring cramp and is likely sitting out again as a precautionary measure. Chris Taylor is starting in his place at the hot corner and will bat eighth against Chase Anderson and the Brewers.

Steven Matz (elbow) will have his next start pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday.

Matz is dealing with a bone spur in the back of his elbow which is causing irritation, but there's no structural damage and continuing to pitch won't make it worse. Of course, the big question is whether it will impact his effectiveness. Matz will try to pitch through it for now and will instead go against the Cubs on Thursday. It's unclear who will make the start Wednesday vs. the Nationals.

Alex Cobb (elbow) threw another bullpen session Monday.

Cobb, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, is scheduled for his third live batting practice session on Thursday. If all goes well, he'll be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. He appears on track to join the Rays right around the start of August.
Jun 28 - 3:54 PM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that an MRI on Stephen Strasburg's back didn't reveal anything unexpected.

In other words, he's still dealing with the initial diagnosis of an upper back strain. While that's encouraging news, the timetable for his return remains up in the air. Top prospect Lucas Giolito is taking his spot in the rotation for now.
Jun 28 - 3:45 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said during a radio appearance on WEEI that Xander Bogaerts will get the day off off Tuesday versus the Rays.

Farrell has talked about giving Bogaerts a day off, so he's going to get it out of the way. Marco Hernandez is expected to start at shortstop.
