Marlins optioned LHP Edgar Olmos to Double-A Jacksonville.

The move clears a spot for Nathan Eovaldi to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday. Olmos, 23, has allowed nine runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks over five innings this season at the big league level.

Ricky Nolasco exited Monday's game against the Dodgers after taking a comebacker off his leg in the seventh inning.

Nolasco had held the Dodgers off the scoreboard through the first six innings, but was hit by a pair of comebackers in the seventh. After a meeting on the mound with the trainer and manager Mike Scioscia, he then left the game. He remained in the dugout after exiting and was spotted pacing around, so this may just have been a precautionary lifting by Scioscia and company. Consider Nolasco day-to-day unless the Angels offer information to the contrary. He will be reevaluated on Tuesday.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer, a solo homer, three runs scored and four RBI in Monday's 15-9 loss to the Indians.

The Rangers were already leading 4-1 when Andrus launched a three-run homer off Carlos Carrasco in the second inning. He would go on to smack a solo shot in the fourth inning to boost the lead to 9-2, a lead which the Rangers somehow managed to blow over the next few innings. The home runs continued what has been a superb overall campaign for the 28-year-old shortstop, who is hitting to a .299/.348/.463 triple-slash with nine homers, 45 RBI, 46 runs scored and 18 stolen bases in 298 at-bats. The nine homers are a career high.

Making his return from the disabled list, Cole Hamels surrendered seven runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Monday's 15-9 loss to the Indians.

Hamels had been on the shelf since early May with a right oblique strain. His return to the mound started out in tenuous enough fashion, as the southpaw loaded the bases with nobody out in the first inning. He managed to Houdini his way out of that mess allowing just one run. He would surrender one more in the third inning before an incredibly shaky four-run fifth (including one run walked in with the bases loaded) finally did him in. Hamels finished up his evening's work having struck out one and walked four. He threw 92 pitches in the outing (48 for strikes). A road start against the White Sox shows next on his schedule as he looks to knock off the rust and work his way back into the flow of the season.

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees plan to call up Tyler Wade to replace Starlin Castro (hamstring) on the roster.

Castro exited Monday's game with a strained right hamstring and looks to be headed to the disabled list prior to Tuesday's contest. Wade has earned the promotion, batting .313 with five homers and 24 stolen bases this season for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The 22-year-old is ranked by MLB.com as the No. 11 prospect in a loaded Yankees farm system. Wade would figure to play regularly while Castro is sidelined and is worth scooping up in deeper formats.

Starlin Castro left Monday's game versus the White Sox with a strained right hamstring.

Castro tweaked the hammy while trying to beat out a grounder in the third inning. Tyler Wade is headed to the majors, and it's likely to take Castro's spot on the roster. Castro will undergo an MRI on Tuesday before the team officially makes a decision on a DL move, but it certainly appears the second baseman will miss some time.

Madison Bumgarner (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

Bumgarner tossed three hitless innings for the Giants' Arizona Rookie League team on Sunday. The ace has made a swift recovery from a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder and is looking like he might be ready for activation just after the All-Star break.
Jun 26 - 8:18 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Friday.

Nunez was finally placed on the DL over the weekend after trying to play through a strained hamstring for a while. However, the Giants clearly don't think he's need much more down time. Ryder Jones has been filling in at third base.

Dodgers placed RHP Brandon McCarthy on the 10-day disabled list with right knee tendinitis.

McCarthy spent time on the DL earlier this season with a knee issue, as well, but this move could be in response to him having a bit of the "yips" during Sunday's start versus the Rockies. Either way, he's expected back when first eligible or shortly after. Kenta Maeda should get at least one additional start now after Tuesday's scheduled outing.
Jun 26 - 7:55 PM

Corey Seager (hamstring) did some running in the outfield prior to Monday's game.

He wasn't running quite at full speed, but it's nice to hear regardless. Seager will sit out again Monday and might miss a few more days of action, but it's looking at this point like he should avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Jun 26 - 7:11 PM

Brandon Finnegan exited Monday's start against the Cardinals with a left triceps strain.

Finnegan was making his first start back from the disabled list after missing 10 weeks with a strained trapezius muscle. It's unclear at this point how serious of an injury it might be, but obviously it's discouraging news. The Reds should have more on his status after the game.
Jun 26 - 7:08 PM

Matt Holliday has been sent for tests due to fatigue.

He's out of the lineup Monday for the second straight day and not available off the bench, either. Holliday was hitless in his last 11 at-bats before missing the two games. The Yankees could offer an update on the slugger later Monday. Gary Sanchez is in the designated hitter spot and Austin Romine is catching Monday.
