Latest Headlines

Michael Morse is not in the Mariners' lineup Tuesday due to his nagging right quad injury.

Morse originally suffered the injury in late May, and he's been unable to totally shake it. The M's have admitted that they would have placed him on the DL earlier had they not been dealing with other injuries, and they're probably wishing they would have gone ahead and done it, anyway. Morse was out testing the quad prior to Tuesday's game and is hoping to be back in the lineup soon.

Kendall Graveman (shoulder) will be placed on the disabled list prior to Monday's game in Cleveland.

It's been the assumption since he was scratched from Friday's start with more shoulder soreness. Graveman was on the DL last month with shoulder issues, as well, and his stay figures to be longer this time around. Daniel Mengden will replace him in the A's rotation.

Francisco Lindor is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the star shortstop. Erik Gonzalez is filling in.

Miguel Sano is absent from the Twins' lineup again Sunday.

Manager Paul Molitor is giving the slumping Sano a second straight day off in hopes that it will "take mental stress off him for a couple of days." Eduardo Escobar is again at third base.

Paul Goldschmidt is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a rare day off for the slugger. Yasmany Tomas is also sitting out, as the D'Backs have Daniel Descalso at first base and Chris Herrmann in left field.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Danny Salazar will available out of the bullpen as soon as Wednesday or Thursday.

The skipper left open the possibility that Salazar could get a start at some point during the team's road trip that begins on Friday, but the talented-but-frustrating righty is headed for relief duty for now. That means Mike Clevinger and Josh Tomlin will keep their rotation spots with Corey Kluber (back) returning this week. Salazar ranks fourth in baseball with a 30.9 percent strikeout percentage, but he's also fourth in walk percentage at 11.9 percent. Additionally, he's served up 11 home runs and his 5.50 ERA ranks 83rd out of 93 qualifiers.

Yonder Alonso (wrist) is back in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It's his first start since he took a pitch off his right wrist Tuesday. Alonso is at first base and batting fifth against Michael Pineda and the Yankees.

Astros placed RHP Charlie Morton on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 25, with a strained right lat.

Morton said that his lat felt "abnormal" while he was playing catch Saturday. He'll be shut down for at least a week and is going to be sidelined for a while. Mike Fiers had been slated to head to the bullpen with Brad Peacock taking his rotation spot, but he should be given a reprieve now.

Adrian Beltre (calf) could be activated from the disabled list Monday.

Beltre has returned to Texas after playing three extended spring training games. He'll be re-evaluated Monday as the Rangers return home for the beginning of a homestand, and all signs are pointing toward Beltre returning from the disabled list. The third baseman has been out all season with a strained right calf.

Zack Wheeler left Saturday's game against the Pirates with a blister.

Wheeler was at 94 pitches when he exited so his night was winding down anyway. The severity of his blister will determine Wheeler's availability going forward. Despite the blister, Wheeler turned in a quality start (6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 5 Ks) and would have been in line for the win if not for a blown save by Addison Reed. His next start is scheduled for Thursday against Milwaukee.

Dallas Keuchel allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks while recording eight strikeouts across six innings in a win Saturday against the Orioles.

Keuchel showed no ill effects from the neck injury which forced him to the 10-day disabled list. He made 86 pitches, throwing 55 for strikes, and continues to mow down opponents. Keuchel is now 8-0 with a 1.81 ERA and sparkling 0.88 WHIP, and he is even better at home. The southpaw is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in five outings at Minute Maid Park this season. His next scheduled start is set for Friday in Texas.

Buck Farmer struck out 11 White Sox over 6 1/3 scoreless innings to help the Tigers salvage a split in Saturday's doubleheader with a 4-3 win in the nightcap.

Making what was supposed to be a spot start as the team's 26th man for the doubleheader, Farmer may have forced the club to make a tough decision with his dominant performance. He gave up just three hits, all singles, while walking two over his 6 1/3 innings, then watched as the Sox tried to mount a comeback in the ninth to deny him of the win. Assuming the Tigers find reason to keep him around -- and given their rotation struggles, it's not hard to see how they might -- Farmer might get another shot at the White Sox when the two clubs meet next weekend.
