Jonathan Lucroy had to leave Monday's game against the Reds after being hit in the left foot by a foul tip.

The Brewers just can't catch a break right now. It's not clear whether Lucroy might be sent for X-rays, as the club is simply calling it a "left foot injury" at the moment. More should be known after the game

Nolan Arenado was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sore left wrist.

It's not clear at this point how Arenado injured the wrist or how serious the setback might be. The Rockies should provide an update on the third baseman shortly. Rafael Ynoa took Arenado's spot at the hot corner.

Jarrod Parker (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Thursday.

Parker will go four innings and/or 60 pitches in his first outing. He'll use his full 30-day rehab allotment, putting him on track to rejoin the Athletics' rotation in late May. Parker has been on a relatively aggressive timetable considering he's coming back from a second Tommy John surgery, but he's experienced no bumps in the road to this point. Those in deeper leagues might want to stash him now if you have the roster space.

Jesse Hahn (blister) has been scratched from his next scheduled start on Thursday in Anaheim.

He'll miss just the one outing, as the A's want to give him some extra rest in order to allow his blister to fully heal. Hahn will rejoin the rotation next week. Jesse Chavez will make a spot start on Thursday in Hahn's place.

Ben Zobrist (knee) will be sidelined for at least a couple more days after being given a cortisone shot on Monday.

Zobrist has dealt with some cartilage issues in his left knee for a while, and they flared up on him Sunday, forcing him from the game. The good news is that he had an MRI and it didn't reveal any ligament issues. The bad news is that it's possible he could require surgery if the cortisone shot doesn't help. It would just be of the cleanup variety, but an operation would obviously sideline Zobrist for at least a few weeks.

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Monday that Nick Swisher (knees) will begin a rehab assignment in the next couple days.

Also noteworthy is that Swisher will return to the Tribe as a right fielder, as he believes that will put less stress on his surgically-repaired knees. Swisher has been playing games in extended spring training for a couple weeks, so he shouldn't need too many rehab contests before being activated. A return before the end of the month seems possible.

Cubs shortstop prospect Addison Russell has started at second base in his last five games for Triple-A Iowa.

It's big news, obviously, since that's the position Russell probably has the best chance to crack at the major league level at the moment. "Being a little bit more proactive regarding prepping him for a need that might be open here," manager Joe Maddon said Monday. Russell is hitting .297/.308/.432 with one homer in the early going for Iowa and could potentially challenge for a promotion before long.

Justin Upton (quad) is back in the Padres' lineup Monday.

Upton missed Sunday's game with a minor quad ailment, but he tested things out prior to Monday's contest and was cleared to return. The outfielder sports a .326/.373/.630 batting line with three home runs in the early going this season.

An MRI has revealed that Greg Holland is dealing with a Grade 1 pectoral strain.

That, of course, is the least severe strain and means that the closer could be ready to return after his 15 days are up. Wade Davis will continue to fill in as the Royals' closer while Holland is on the shelf.
Apr 20 - 5:00 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday that it's possible Scooter Gennett (hand) could need a disabled list stint if his injury lingers.

Gennett cut his hand in the shower after Sunday's game and needed stitches. The Brewers figure to give him a few days to see how the hand responds before making a decision. Hector Gomez is filling in at second base Monday and will continue to do so for as long as Gennett is sidelined.
Apr 20 - 4:57 PM

An MRI taken last Thursday confirmed that Justin Verlander is dealing with a right triceps strain.

Verlander has had trouble getting over the hump, battling fatigue in the triceps when he throws off a mound for too long. He will not resume throwing until the pain subsides, so the right-hander's timetable to totally up in the air at the moment. Kyle Lobstein will continue to fill his spot in the Tigers' rotation.
