Mets recalled RHP Jeurys Familia from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Familia will replace Greg Burke on the active roster. The 23-year-old right-hander made one appearance with the Mets earlier this month and has tossed five scoreless innings in the minors. He figures to pitch in middle relief.

Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) has returned to the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Cespedes was forced to miss the entire weekend series against the Nationals while nursing left hamstring soreness, but he's back in there as promised Tuesday. Of course, there's rain in the forecast and the game might not be played.

George Springer (hamstring) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

The hope was that Springer would only have to miss one game due to his left hamstring tightness, but he apparently needs at least another day. Josh Reddick is starting in center field Tuesday, with Nori Aoki in right and Carlos Beltran in left.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "moving forward" with an investment group including Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter to purchase the team.

This confirms a report from Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg. Jackson hears that there's an "agreement in principle" for the Jeb/Jeter group to purchase the team from Jeffrey Loria, with the price tag at $1.3 billion. Bush is expected to be the control person, according to Jackson, but more than five investors are involved and Jeter is expected to have an active role. Of course, any sale will need to be approved by MLB's other owners. Loria originally purchased the Marlins for $158.5 million in 2002.

Tuesday's game between the Yankees and Red Sox has been postponed due to rain.

The forecast is a rough one in Boston, so they got this decision out of the early. It's worth noting that more rain is expected on Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday's game will be rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday July 16. Rick Porcello and Luis Severino will presumably be pushed back a day in their respective rotations.

Mariners activated SS Jean Segura from the 10-day disabled list.

Segura went 1-for-11 with a walk over three rehab games with Double-A Arkansas, but the most important thing is that he didn't have any issues with his hamstring. Taylor Motter did a great job filling in at shortstop and should bounce around multiple spots now that Segura has returned.

Red Sox placed 3B Pablo Sandoval on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 24, with a right knee sprain.

Sandoval suffered the injury while making a play at third base on Sunday. Results of an MRI on Monday aren't yet known, but the Red Sox should provide a timetable soon. Josh Rutledge has been activated from the disabled list to take his place on the active roster.

Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with three RBI in the Twins' 3-2 defeat of the Rangers on Monday.

Dozier gave Minnesota the lead for good with his bases-clearing three-run double off Rangers left-hander Martin Perez in the top of the fifth inning. The star second baseman has tallied just six total RBI in 18 games this season to go along with an underwhelming .257/.321/.392 batting line, but he's capable of getting it going in a hurry. Dozier does have five stolen bases in six tries.

Eric Thames hit two more homers and drew two more walks Monday in the Brewers' 11-7 defeat of the Reds.

Thames was mostly held in check over the weekend in St. Louis, but he got back to his Barry Bonds-like ways on Monday night. The big slugger hit a solo homer off Reds left-hander Amir Garrett in the first inning and then tagged Garrett again for a two-run shot in the second. He finished out his final three plate appearances with two walks. Thames has batted .373/.481/.910 with 10 home runs and 13 walks in 19 games this season. He's already matched the Brewers' franchise record for most home runs in April, with five games to go.
Apr 24 - 11:43 PM

Ryan Braun exited Monday's game against the Reds with a bruised foot.

It had seemed like Braun might just be getting some rest after the Brewers had built up a big lead, but apparently he was sore after fouling a couple balls off his foot. He had X-rays, which came back negative. Braun is day-to-day.

Miguel Gonzalez allowed just one unearned run over eight innings Monday as the White Sox routed the Royals 12-1.

Kansas City's only run came in the top of the third, when Whit Merrifield reached on a Todd Frazier fielding error and scored moments later on a Mike Moustakas double. Gonzalez allowed just two total hits and one walk while striking out five as he moved to 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 20/8 K/BB ratio in 27 innings this season. We'll see if he has another eight innings in him next time out against the Tigers. Even with the hot start, he makes for a poor fantasy streaming option.
Apr 24 - 11:21 PM

Matt Davidson went 3-for-4 with four RBI as the White Sox dominated the Royals on Monday.

Davidson hit a solo homer off Jason Vargas in the bottom of the second inning and he had both an RBI double and a two-run single in Chicago's eight-run sixth inning. The 26-year-old former top prospect filled in well at third base when Todd Frazier was battling the flu and he should continue to see more turns at DH, which is where he started and finished the game Monday night.
