Steve Clevenger (oblique) caught two bullpen sessions on Monday.

He's also throwing from 120-130 feet and is expected to start swinging a bat early next week. Clevenger is on the 60-day DL and won't be eligible to return until mid-June. He should have no trouble being ready at that time, though he's not a given to return to the big club.

The Blue Jays will activate both Josh Donaldson (calf) and Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) before Friday's game against the Rangers.

Toronto has been playing better in May and will get the left side of their infield back for the beginning of a 10-game homestand, so things are looking up at the moment. Donaldson has been sidelined since April 14 and Tulowitzki has been on the shelf since April 21.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that the Giants optioning Christian Arroyo back to Triple-A Sacramento "seems to be on the table."

Arroyo is 6-for-49 with 12 strikeouts in his past 13 games, dropping his batting line with the Giants to .191/.242/.304 across 115 at-bats. The youngster has popped three homers and played well defensively, but the Giants have to make room for Aaron Hill (forearm) and Conor Gillaspie (back) soon and the move that might make the most sense is sending Arroyo back to the minors for more seasoning. The picture could change if Eduardo Nunez's hamstring injury is worse than expected, but right now the hope is that he'll be ready to play Friday.

Tom Murphy (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as next week.

Murphy's recovery from a hairline fracture in his right forearm and wrist has come along more slowly than expected, but obviously he's made nice progress of late. Considering how long he's been sidelined, Murphy's rehab assignment figures to be a pretty lengthy one. Still, he's a guy worth stashing now if he was dropped in your league.

Jon Gray (foot) hopes to throw a bullpen session this weekend without wearing a walking boot.

He's been throwing bullpen sessions while wearing the boot but is aiming to ditch it this weekend. Gray will require at least three rehab starts before rejoining the Rockies' rotation, so it's going to be a while. Manager Bud Black indicated earlier this week that he expected Gray back in three weeks, so a mid-June return looks like the best-case scenario.

Michael Wacha allowed six runs on seven hits over four-plus innings in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Wacha was working with a 3-0 advantage before he even threw his first pitch, but he was unable to hold the early lead afforded to him by the offense. Chase Utley burned him for a solo home run in the second inning, with three more runs scoring in the fourth inning. Two of those came home off the bat of opposing number Kenta Maeda, who laced a single down the third base line on a hanging curve. The final two runs on his line scored via the bullpen after he allowed runners on before being pulled with nobody out in the fifth. Wacha will carry a still-sturdy 3.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a home start against (once again) the Dodger when he next takes to the mound.

Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Tigers.

Correa got the mini comeback started when he took Tigers starter Justin Verlander deep for a two-run bomb in the fourth inning. The homer was his seventh in 42 games this year. The 22-year-old isn't running, having yet to steal a base this year, but he's hitting .288/.370/.481 with 26 RBI and 29 runs scored in the middle of a good Astros lineup. Even if the steals don't come, Correa is on his way to another fine season at the dish.

Xander Bogaerts got his long-awaited first home run of the 2017 season Thursday, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in a 6-2 win over the Rangers.

Bogaerts got hold of a Nick Martinez offering in the third inning, lining it just over the top of the Green Monster to get him on the board. It's hard to believe he hadn't lucked into one before this, especially after he hit a career-best 21 dingers in 2016. It's a big one, but that's really the only knock against the 24-year-old this year, as he's been a terrific offensive performer by basically any other metric. Bogaerts is hitting .335/.398/.470 with eight steals, 17 RBI and 29 runs scored overall.

Drew Pomeranz had it all working Thursday, striking out 11 while allowing two runs over six innings in a win over the Rangers.

It was a good sign for Sox fans when the southpaw struck out the first two batters he faced and ended up punching out five of the first seven hitters he saw. He allowed just four hits, including a solo homer to Elvis Andrus, and walked one over his six innings. Efficiency has been his enemy this season -- only three times in nine starts has he gotten through six innings, and he's yet to record an out in the seventh -- but the Sox will take Thursday's performance every time. Pomeranz will try to carry on that good momentum, and continue to work on his 4.70 ERA, against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Robbie Ray struck out nine Brewers over seven scoreless innings as the Diamondbacks shut out the Crew 4-0 on Thursday.

Not to be overshadowed by teammate Zack Greinke, Ray reminded everyone Thursday that he's a talented member of the rotation, too. The Brewers were able to muster just two singles off Ray over his seven innings, and the southpaw didn't issue a free pass all night. It was the second consecutive start in which he's left without giving up a run, lowering his ERA to 3.45 with a 1.20 WHIP through 10 starts overall. Ray will try to keep the shutout streak going Tuesday against the Pirates.

Ryan Braun (calf) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Braun only lasted four days before landing back on the DL. He's been struggling with calf issues on and off for the past month and appeared to aggravate his injury Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Left field duties will be shared between Hernan Perez, Nick Franklin and Eric Thames during his absence. More will be known on Braun's recovery timetable after he undergoes an MRI. The former MVP has been productive when healthy this year, hitting .262 with seven homers, 19 RBI and four steals over 30 appearances.

Dinelson Lamet struck out eight while allowing one run over five innings in his MLB debut Thursday, a 4-3 win over the Mets.

Lamet yielded just three hits, including a Lucas Duda solo homer, while also walking two in the outing. It was a heck of a debut for the 24-year-old, who earned the shot by posting a 3.23 ERA with 50 strikeouts in 39 innings at Triple-A El Paso to start the year. It certainly won't be his last start with the big club after that kind of debut. His next test will be a serious one, coming next Tuesday against the defending champion Cubs.
