Craig Breslow (shoulder) will make rehab appearances on Saturday and Sunday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Breslow didn't retire any of the four batters he faced in his first rehab appearance at Double-A Portland on Tuesday. He's feeling OK, though, and just needs to work on his breaking ball while building up arm strength. The lefty could be back early next month.

Jordan Zimmermann spun eight scoreless innings in a 2-0 win over the Blue Jays in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Zimmermann ran into a bit of trouble in the seventh by loading the bases, but he was able to induce a key double play grounder to get out of the jam. Otherwise, he cruised, scattering six hits to go with one walk and four strikeouts. Zimmermann has allowed just six runs combined over his last six starts, lowering his ERA from 4.88 to 2.88 in the process. He lines up for a start against the Cubs this weekend.

Tigers placed OF Rajai Davis on the paternity leave list.

Davis left the team to be present for the birth of his second child. He's permitted to be away from the team for 24 to 72 hours.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is scheduled to take live batting practice Tuesday.

This comes one day after he tested his left hamstring by running at nearly 100 percent. Puig doesn't sound far off from going out on another minor league rehab assignment.

Edwin Encarnacion is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

In other words, the Blue Jays are going with the same lineup they planned to use on Monday, with Justin Smoak making the start at first base. Encarnacion is likely to be in the lineup for Game 2.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) will start in right field for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Bautista was slated to play right field Monday before the game was postponed due to rain. He has been limited to DH duties since April 21 due to right shoulder inflammation, but has felt some improvement since a cortisone shot last week. We still wouldn't count on seeing him in right field on an everyday basis, but this is a good sign for the Blue Jays.
Jun 2 - 11:11 AM

Denard Span (knee) is out of the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

It's not a big surprise, as he was set to sit out Monday's game before it was postponed due to rain. Span left Sunday's game with renewed discomfort in his right knee and Nationals manager Matt Williams said Tuesday that an MRI revealed swelling. He'll continue to get treatment on the knee and could potentially play in the second half of the doubleheader, but fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place. Michael Taylor will play center field in the first game of the doubleheader.

Tests confirmed that Stephen Strasburg is dealing with a left trapezius strain.

This matches the initial diagnosis from the Nationals. Strasburg won't throw until he's healed, but it's possible that will only take a matter of days. Taylor Jordan is the most likely option to replace him in the rotation on Wednesday.

Rangers placed 3B Adrian Beltre on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 1, with a sprained left thumb.

Beltre suffered a lacerated and dislocated left thumb when he attempted to break up a double play during Sunday's game. He's expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Top prospect Joey Gallo is being called up from Double-A and will fill in at third base.

Mark Teixeira walked and hit a grand slam in four plate appearances Monday, leading the Yankees past the Mariners.

Teixeira knocked ace Felix Hernandez out of the game with his fifth-inning grand slam. At the rate he's going, he'll reach 30 home runs in a season for the first time since 2011. He's at 15 now along with 39 RBI and a .241/.358/.566 batting line.

Albert Pujols crushed a pair of home runs, going 3-for-5 as the Angels topped the Rays on Monday.

Pujols gave the Angels plenty of insurance with his homers. His first, in the fifth inning, extended the lead to 5-3. His second, in the eighth inning, made it 7-3. Pujols -- now with five home runs in his last five games -- has 533 round-trippers in his career, leaving him one short of tying Jimmie Foxx for 17th on the all-time leaderboard. Pujols also has 13 homers on the season along with 26 RBI and a .254/.304/.497 triple-slash line.

Gerrit Cole allowed only a pair of unearned runs over seven innings to pick up his eighth win of the season against the Giants on Monday.

Jung Ho Kang's fielding error and a wild pitch contributed to the Giants scoring twice in the first inning. Cole settled down from there, limiting the Giants to five hits and a pair of walks while striking out nine. The 24-year-old has been among baseball's best, now 8-2 with a 1.90 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, and a 79/16 K/BB ratio over 71 innings. Cole will take the hill against the Braves in Atlanta next.
