Rangers placed LHP Martin Perez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with a fractured left forearm.

He'll be out until early-to-mid May with the injury. Perez is no safe bet to join the big league rotation when healthy, especially since Colby Lewis will be back around the same time.

Chris Sale will make his return Thursday against the Cubs.

The White Sox suspended Sale for five games after he cut up some throwback uniforms with a knife as a bizarre form of protest. There's a chance that Thursday could be a final start with the White Sox, as the trade deadline is approaching and there has been quite a bit of a chatter about a possible deal. Of course, it would require a monster haul for Chicago to part with him and they might not see the sort of offers they want.

Rockies purchased the contract of OF David Dahl from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dahl has officially been called up to the majors and will bat sixth and play left field in his major league debut Monday against the Orioles. The 22-year-old has batted .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, and 17 steals over 92 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. It's unclear how the playing time will shake out, but there could be a clear path if Carlos Gonzalez and/or Charlie Blackmon are traded. Obviously the fantasy potential is huge here, especially by virtue of playing half of his games in Coors Field.

The Rangers expect Prince Fielder to undergo season-ending neck surgery later this week.

It's not unexpected after Fielder was placed on the disabled list last week with a herniated disk in his neck. He required fusion surgery on his neck two years ago, but the specifics of this week's procedure isn't yet known. Either way, he's done for the year and at this point, his future is very much up in the air. He's still under contract through 2020.

Maikel Franco (wrist) is back in the Phillies' lineup Monday against the Marlins.

Franco hasn't started since Friday due to a bruised wrist, but he entered the game Sunday after Andres Blanco fractured his left index finger. He's batting third against Jarred Cosart on Monday.

Josh Reddick (back) has returned to the Athletics' starting lineup Monday against the Rangers.

Reddick missed consecutive starts over the weekend due to back soreness, but he was able to play some defense on Sunday. It's not a major concern.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley will make his major league debut Monday against the Brewers. The 25-year-old posted a 3.70 ERA and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings over 19 starts this season in Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll keep a rotation spot once Zack Greinke (oblique) is ready to return.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Shipley was the 15th overall pick back in the 2013 draft, but hasn't been great at the AAA level with just a 15.5 K% in 119.1 IP on the season. While the Brewers do strike out a ton against RHP (26.3 K%), they are in a nice spot tonight with one of the highest team totals on the slate. All of the bats in the top six of the order are squarely in play, and stacking up any combination of them is a fine GPP move.

Mookie Betts (knee) has returned to the Red Sox lineup Monday versus the Tigers.

Betts sat out Saturday and Sunday after leaving Friday's game with minor soreness in his right knee. He is starting in right field and batting leadoff Monday night against Detroit right-hander Justin Verlander.
Jul 25 - 3:37 PM

Russell Martin (knee) is back in the Blue Jays' lineup Monday versus the Padres.

He will start at catcher and bat sixth after missing the Blue Jays' entire weekend series against the Mariners because of a minor knee injury. Martin is slashing .228/.317/.338 with seven home runs and 36 RBI in 81 games this season for Toronto.
Jul 25 - 3:35 PM

Blue Jays activated OF Jose Bautista from the 15-day disabled list.

Bautista wound up missing five weeks because of turf toe. He's starting in right field and batting leadoff in his return Monday against the Padres. Bautista homered in his first rehab at-bat last week at High-A Dunedin and is safe for immediate activation in fantasy leagues. The veteran slugger returns to an .815 OPS, 12 homers, 41 RBI, and 41 runs scored.

Yankees recalled RHP Luis Severino from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Severino is expected to be available out of the Yankees' bullpen on Monday night in Houston. This could be a quick stopgap while the club awaits the arrival of Adam Warren, who was reacquired from the Cubs in the Aroldis Chapman trade on Monday afternoon. Severino, 22, has posted a decent 3.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 57/15 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings (10 starts) since his demotion to the Triple-A level back in May. He had a 7.46 ERA in seven starts with New York.

Craig Kimbrel (knee) threw around 20 pitches off the mound at Fenway Park on Monday.

The workout was observed by Red Sox manager John Farrell, two coaches, two trainers, and two physical therapists. It ended with a round of fist-bumps, which is usually a positive sign. Kimbrel will throw off a mound again Wednesday and could then be cleared to face live hitters. He is on track to return to the Boston bullpen early next week in Seattle. Brad Ziegler is currently filling in at closer.
