Alberto Callaspo left Wednesday's game with a left forearm contusion.

Callaspo suffered the injury on a collision at home plate in the fourth inning. It's probably safe to call him day-to-day for now.

Corey Seager (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

Seager hasn't played since suffering a Grade 1 right hamstring strain last Friday. He did some running prior to Monday's game and seemed OK, but the Dodgers obviously aren't comfortable throwing him out there yet. Enrique Hernandez is handling shortstop again.

Matt Holliday (fatigue) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Tuesday.

Holliday hasn't played since Saturday due to fatigue, telling manager Joe Girardi that "it feels like someone zapped me of all my energy." The club could send him back to New York to undergo more tests if he doesn't feel better soon. The Yankees have Tyler Austin in the designated hitter spot and Austin Romine at first base.

Carlos Gomez is not in Tuesday's lineup because of a sore back.

It doesn't sound like a big deal, but the Rangers figured it would be best to give him a little rest. Delino DeShields is in center field.

Danny Salazar (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Saturday.

Salazar went through a simulated game on Monday with no issues, clearing the way for him to return to official game action. It's unclear how many rehab outings he'll need, but the Indians figure to proceed cautiously with him. Salazar had been demoted to the bullpen prior to being placed on the DL with a sore shoulder.

Yankees placed 2B Starlin Castro on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Castro suffered the injury on Monday while running out a groundball. The good news is it's only a Grade 1 strain and he thinks he has a chance to be back when his 10 days are up. Tyler Wade is replacing Castro on the roster and figures to play a lot at second base. Ronald Torreyes is starting there Tuesday, and Rob Refsnyder is also an option.

Brandon Finnegan (shoulder) will be placed back on the disabled list.

Finnegan re-injured himself on Monday while making his first start since mid-April. The Reds initially said is was a left triceps strain, but now they say he's dealing with another shoulder injury that's in a different spot that his first ailment. He's sidelined indefinitely and it's beginning to look like a lost season for the southpaw.

Padres activated OF Manuel Margot from the 10-day disabled list.

Margot has been sidelined for a little over a month with a strained calf. He went just 3-for-20 (.150) during his rehab assignment, but the rookie outfielder feels healthy and that's really all the Padres care about.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Padres bats aren't too appealing on a full slate against Sean Newcomb, but starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin has viability in his home park. Chacin owns a surprisingly solid 6.4 Hd-Sft% at home to go along with a 55% GB rate and just five HRs allowed in 47 IP. He’s been fortunate from a BABIP perspective, but sets up as a fine mid-range play for those looking to pay a premium for bats. Atlanta owns the 5th lowest team total on the slate.

Jonathan Villar is not in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Reds.

In other words, Villar is sitting in his return from the disabled list while the hot-hitting Eric Sogard will start at second base and hit leadoff. He struggled before hitting the DL with a back strain and now his playing time could be in jeopardy. Ryan Braun, who was also activated from the DL on Tuesday, is in the lineup.
Jun 27 - 3:47 PM

Michael Conforto (hand) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

X-rays came back negative after Conforto was hit in the left wrist/hand by a pitch on Sunday, but he needs some more time before returning to the lineup. Conforto hasn't tried swinging a bat yet, but manager Terry Collins thinks he'll be available off the bench. The Mets will go with Yoenis Cespedes, Curtis Granderson, and Jay Bruce across their outfield on Tuesday.
Jun 27 - 3:45 PM

Hanley Ramirez (knee) is out of the starting lineup again on Tuesday.

Ramirez has now missed back-to-back starts since he was hit in the left knee by a pitch during Sunday's game. Chris Young will cover DH duties with lefty Hector Santiago on the hill for Minnesota.
Jun 27 - 3:37 PM

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. It should be noted that Grilli's secondary numbers aren't nearly as bad, so he should attract some interest on the open market.
