Royals optioned LHP John Lamb to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Lamb allowed one run in two innings over two appearances during Cactus League action. The 22-year-old was one of the game's top pitching prospects prior to Tommy John surgery in 2011 and he's still trying to get his career back on track.

Jason Hammel struck out 11 batters and allowed only one run in 6 2/3 innings of work en route to a win against the Marlins on Monday.

11 punch-outs marks a career-high for Hammel. He had previously struck out 10 batters on three occasions, last occuring in June 2012. The Marlins' only run came home in the third inning when Giancarlo Stanton stole third base and scored on catcher Miguel Montero's throwing error. Hammel surrendered only five hits in total while walking none. He boasts a sterling 2.82 ERA with a 0.90 WHIP and a 69/7 K/BB ratio over 67 innings this season. He'll look to keep it going in a weekend road start versus the Nationals.

Desmond Jennings (knee) had a few at-bats in an extended spring training game Monday.

It's his first game action since he landed on the disabled list in late April with left knee bursitis. The bad news is that Rays manager Kevin Cash said Jennings "still felt something" in his knee during the game. It's unclear whether he'll continue to keep playing in extended spring or if the Rays will pump the breaks a bit. Jennings has been out since late April.

Matt Moore (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Moore was cleared for official game work after getting through a 46-pitch extended spring appearance last Thursday. He's slated to make 5-6 rehab starts, putting him on track to return possibly before the end of the month. The left-hander is worth stashing away now if you have space on your roster.

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could resume his rehab assignment later this week.

D'Arnaud had been slated to return this week after missing over a month with a fractured right pinkie finger, but he had a setback last week with a bone bruise in his wrist. It sounds like the setback was minor, though, so the young catcher could be back in the Mets' lineup before long.

Cameron Maybin was scratched from Monday's lineup due to a might quad/groin injury.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that Maybin is available to pinch-hit and he expects the outfielder to return to the lineup Tuesday. Maybin batted .290/.371/.409 with two homers, 17 RBI and five steals in May.

Wil Myers (wrist) could take batting practice on the field Wednesday.

Myers took swings off a tee on Saturday with no issues and is ready to take the next step. He's been on the shelf for three weeks with tendinitis in his left wrist but appears to finally be making strides. A rehab assignment can't be far off as long as he can avoid a setback.
Jun 1 - 7:26 PM

Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Alonso has just three hits in 16 at-bats during five rehab games so far, but the important thing is that his right shoulder is feeling fine. The first baseman was off to a .333/.427/.437 start this season with the Padres before landing on the disabled list in early May.
Jun 1 - 7:24 PM

Monday's game between the Blue Jays and Nationals has been postponed due to rain.

It will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday. Scheduled starters Jordan Zimmermann and R.A. Dickey will be pushed back a day.
Jun 1 - 7:17 PM

Phillies released OF Grady Sizemore.

Sizemore had been designated for assignment and, not surprisingly, cleared waivers. The 32-year-old has batted only .245/.288/.296 with no homers in 39 games this season. He'll be able to find a job elsewhere but might have to settle for a minor league deal.
Jun 1 - 7:03 PM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) ran at close to 100 percent on Monday.

He should be cleared to resume a rehab assignment at some point this week as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. Puig has been battling a strained left hamstring for six weeks now but finally appears to be making some strides.
Jun 1 - 6:57 PM

Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday due to stiffness in his right knee.

Duda was hit by a pitch on the knee during Sunday's game. He was able to stay in that contest but obviously is feeling the effects a day later. The good news is that Duda thinks he'll be fine to play on Tuesday. Michael Cuddyer is at first base Monday, with Darrell Ceciliani covering left field.
