Yu Darvish (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A South Bend on Monday.

Darvish has missed over a month of action with a triceps issue, so he figures to require multiple rehab outings before rejoining the Cubs' rotation. He's posted a disappointing 4.95 ERA so far in his first year in Chicago.

Braves placed RHP Arodys Vizcaino on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 18, with right shoulder inflammation.

Vizcaino has battled shoulder soreness off and on all season and hasn't pitched in a week. He'll be eligible to return later this week but it's unclear at this point whether he'll be ready at that time. A.J. Minter will get the first shot to close for the Braves in Vizcaino's absence. Dan Winkler could also be in the mix, although he's struggled lately.

Jean Segura (arm) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

It's the fourth straight game he's missed due to an infection in his arm. Andrew Romine is at shortstop.

Kris Bryant is missing a second straight start Sunday because of a sore left shoulder.

The Cubs believe at this time that the ailment is minor, so Bryant should return sometime during the early-week series against the Dodgers unless he has a setback. Ian Happ is at third base Sunday.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have made Adrian Beltre available via trade.

Beltre has 10-and-5 rights and thus has the ability to veto any trade, but the 39-year-old could be willing to approve a deal in order to get a shot to play in the postseason. Grant says that the Rangers are also willing to listen to offers for relievers Keone Kela and Jake Diekman. Beltre has dealt with injuries this season but is sporting a .314/.365/.456 batting line. It's been reported previously that the Phillies are one club known to have interest in him.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres have shown interest in Maikel Franco.

It's possible the Phillies may be willing to move on from Franco -- who has frustrated with his inconsistency -- and Rosenthal says Philly could target one of the Padres' relievers. However, they would likely need to add an infielder first with J.P. Crawford (hand) sidelined. Philadelphia has been connected to Adrian Beltre.

Mike Leake was brilliant in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Sox, firing off eight scoreless innings while allowing just three hits.

Awesome showing for Leake, who struck out five and walked two in the primetime spotlight. He did so in ruthlessly economic fashion, too, requiring just 98 pitches (61 strikes) to make it through his eight innings of work. It no doubt helped that he was backed by the offense, which plated seven runs against Boston pitching in the win. The strong outing was exactly the kind of rebound performance that Leake needed after he was knocked for five runs by these same Red Sox in his previous outing. He's held the opposition to two or fewer runs in six of his last seven outings, with that aforementioned five-run stinker the lone outlier in the lot. Leake will carry a 4.11 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 60/23 K/BB ratio (100 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Orioles in his next scheduled outing.

Trevor Bauer allowed one run on five hits while striking out 11 in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Tigers.

Bauer has been on an out-and-out strikeout tear of late, with Saturday's 11 whiffs of Tigers batters marking the fifth time in six starts in which he has racked up double-digit strikeouts. The only run to score over his 6 1/3 innings of work came when he uncorked a wild pitch to allow JaCoby Jones to scamper home from third in the second inning. He wrapped up his superlative evening having thrown 112 pitches (72 for strikes). Bauer will bring a 2.44 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 140/35 K/BB ratio (107 innings) into a road showdown with the A's in his next scheduled outing. He's in the midst of putting together a career-best season.

Yadier Molina homered twice and drove in three runs in four at-bats to spearhead a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

He popped a solo homer off starter Chase Anderson in the second inning, then gave the Cardinals the lead to stay by taking Jeremy Jeffress deep for a two-run shot in the sixth. The veteran catcher missed a month of action with a traumatic hematoma but has still been able to rank among the league's better fantasy catchers by slashing .276/.323/.506 with 11 homers and 31 RBI in 47 games.
Jun 23 - 9:05 PM

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-3 with a grand slam and a walk in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Braves.

Stepping to the plate with the bases juiced and nobody out in the first inning, Trumbo uncoiled to strike for a long home run off Julio Teheran to give the Orioles a nice early cushion on the scoreboard. The veteran slugger has been on a power tear of late, launching four home runs in his last seven games after managing just three long balls through his first 35 games of the campaign. On the whole, Trumbo is hitting .263/.320/.462 with seven home runs and 20 RBI across 156 at-bats. Just 10 games ago, that batting line was sitting at a limp .254/.299/.389. Trumbo makes for an intriguing buy-low candidate for fantasy purposes, but that window might be closing by degrees given his recent hot play.
