Dodgers manager Don Mattingly doesn't anticipate that Matt Kemp (ankle) will need to be placed on the disabled list.

Kemp left Sunday's game in the ninth inning after an awkward slide at home plate, but the injury is considered "relatively minor" and he should avoid going back on the disabled list. Playing in his first game since July 6, he finished 3-for-4 and hit his fifth home run of the season before exiting.

Blue Jays designated RHP Jason Grilli for assignment.

It's part of a host of moves for the Blue Jays, including the addition of Chris Smith to the bullpen. The 40-year-old Grilli has put up an unsightly 6.97 ERA over 26 appearances this season and the Blue Jays are now ready to move forward.

Brewers activated INF Jonathan Villar from the 10-day disabled list.

Villar landed on the disabled list with a back strain earlier this month, but he made it through a brief rehab assignment with no issues while going 8-for-13. The Brewers will have to hope that he can keep it going in his return to the active roster. Villar has put up a disappointing .213/.283/.342 batting line so far this season. Eric Sogard could cut into his playing time if he continues to struggle.

Brewers activated OF Ryan Braun from the 10-day disabled list.

Braun, who has been out for a month with a calf strain, went 2-for-8 with a homer during a brief minor league rehab stint with Class A Wisconsin. The 33-year-old returns to a .262/.350/.524 batting line with seven home runs and 19 RBI over 30 games.

Addison Russell (shoulder) is out of the Cubs' lineup again on Tuesday.

Russell was able to pinch hit on Monday, but his shoulder apparently isn't 100 percent just yet. Javier Baez will cover shortstop duties while Tommy La Stella plays second and Jeimer Candelario starts at third. Kris Bryant will play right field.

Anthony Rizzo is back in the leadoff spot for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Rizzo hit second Monday with Wellington Castillo getting a shot out of the leadoff spot, but he's back in there for Tuesday's game. Rizzo is hitting .333/.400/.714 with four homers and 11 RBI in 11 games out of the leadoff spot.

Andrew McCutchen will move into the No. 3 spot Tuesday against the Rays.

McCutchen caught fire out of the No. 6 spot, batting .380 with eight homers and a 1.161 OPS over 28 games. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has resisted switching things up until now, but he's finally ready for a change. Fantasy owners won't complain.

According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves remain interested in trading for White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana or Rays right-hander Chris Archer.

It's no surprise, as the Braves were linked to both pitchers during the offseason. O'Brien hears that the club had scouts at Sonny Gray's start on Sunday, but they are more interested in landing either Quintana or Archer. The Braves aren't a contender, so they are looking for a pitcher under team control for multiple seasons. Both pitchers qualify. Quintana might be a more realistic target, as the Rays have a legitimate shot to win this year. Either way, the price tag would be substantial.

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.
