Cliff Lee (neck) will make his next start Sunday against the Braves.

Lee hasn't pitched since July 21 due to a stiff neck, but he has felt much better in recent days. The veteran southpaw owns a 3.05 ERA over 20 starts this season.

Seth Smith cranked two home runs in an epic beatdown of his former team the Padres on Tuesday.

Smith took James Shields deep for a three-run homer in the third inning, then added a solo shot off Padres reliever Luis Perdomo in the fifth. He wrapped up his day going 2-for-4 with a walk plus four RBI and three runs scored. The 33-year-old outfielder shows no signs of aging. He is slashing .269/.392/.438 with six longballs, 26 runs scored, and 22 RBI.

Yasiel Puig was scratched from the Dodgers' lineup on Tuesday because of a sore left hamstring.

Trayce Thompson will start in right field and Carl Crawford will start in left field versus Cubs ace Jake Arrieta. Puig was limited to 79 games in 2015 largely because of hamstring issues, so this will be a situation to monitor over the next couple days. He's slashing just .239/.286/.364 over his first 196 plate appearances in 2016.

Brandon Phillips was scratched from the Reds' lineup Tuesday due to a sore left foot.

The veteran second baseman is considered day-to-day. Jordan Pacheco will fill in at Coors Field.

George Springer blasted his 12th longball of the season on Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Springer’s monster game saw him go 3-for-4 with the home run, four RBI, and two runs scored. He was also hit by a pitch but escaped unharmed. The Astros slugger now sports a strong .288/.376/.509 slash line on the season.

Dodgers designated INF/OF Alex Guerrero for assignment.

Guerrero's 20-day minor league rehab assignment came to an end on Sunday and the Dodgers don't currently have a spot for the 29-year-old on their major league roster, so they decided to go ahead and cut him loose. Guerrero, signed to a $28 million deal out of Cuba in 2014, was 9-for-66 (.136) in 16 games this season between High-A Rancho Cucamonga, Double-A Tulsa, and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll probably be officially released within the next 10 days, after he clears waivers.

Rich Hill (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

If it goes well, he should be cleared to pitch this weekend against the Astros. Hill left his start Sunday versus the Tigers after suffering a mild groin strain. He went 6 1/3 strong innings in that outing and boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 74 strikeouts over 64 total innings this season.
May 31 - 7:03 PM

Blue Jays acquired RHP Jason Grilli from the Braves for RHP Sean Ratcliffe.

Grilli has posted an ugly 5.29 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, and 23/13 K/BB ratio in 17 innings this season, but the Blue Jays apparently believe he has something left in the tank. The 39-year-old right-hander will presumably join up with the Jays on Wednesday in Toronto. He figures to pitch in low-leverage situations initially.
May 31 - 6:53 PM

Alex Wood is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a left triceps injury.

Wood apparently suffered the injury near the end of his five-inning start Monday against the Cubs. Julio Urias is going to take his spot in the rotation this weekend versus the Braves -- a nice matchup for the young lefty. Wood had registered a decent 3.99 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 62/19 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings (10 starts) this season for Los Angeles.
May 31 - 6:23 PM

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) could join the Reds' rotation next week against the Cardinals.

He struck out seven batters over four innings of one-run ball Monday in his second rehab start with Triple-A Louisville. DeSclafani will make one more minor league appearance on Saturday before possibly taking the ball for the Reds next Thursday versus St. Louis. The right-hander has been out all season with an oblique strain. He was a popular fantasy sleeper before the injury and is worth a stash in deeper leagues.
May 31 - 6:20 PM

Kenta Maeda has some residual swelling in his right hand and might not pitch Thursday.

Maeda was struck in the hand by a comebacker in his last start Saturday against the Mets. X-rays turned up negative, but even a little swelling can affect the right-hander's delivery. Maeda was lined up to start Thursday's series finale at Wrigley Field.
May 31 - 6:02 PM

Jose Reyes (suspension) will join Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday for a rehab assignment.

Reyes has been getting into baseball shape for the last two weeks at the Rockies' spring training complex in Arizona and can begin playing in live games June 1, when his domestic violence suspension officially comes to an end. The veteran shortstop is expected to spend two weeks in the minor leagues. Beyond that, it's not exactly clear what the plan is.
