Joe Mauer (concussion) has been told by team doctors to "take it easy" until Tuesday.

That effectively ends any possibility of him returning for next week's series against the Royals. Chris Herrmann and Ryan Doumit will continue to handle the load behind the plate in his absence.

Angel Pagan (back) is not in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

Manager Bruce Bochy said after Monday's game that he expected Pagan to be ready to go Tuesday, but obviously that's not the case. Consider Pagan day-to-day. Juan Perez is getting another start in center field Tuesday.

Shin-Soo Choo is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his left ankle.

Choo needs the procedure to repair cartilage damage and will be shut down from running for 6-8 weeks. He also had surgery in late August for bone spurs in his left elbow. It was a miserable 2014 for the 32-year-old outfielder, who batted just .242/.340/.374 with 13 home runs and four stolen bases in 123 games. He still has six years and $116 million remaining on his contract with the Rangers.

Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is back in the Angels' lineup on Tuesday night against the Mariners.

Hamilton missed 10 games with a right shoulder injury. He will DH and bat sixth in his return.

Nolan Arenado has been diagnosed with pneumonia.

The third baseman is home resting while the Rockies continue a three-game series against the Dodgers. It's not clear when Arenado might return to action.

Albert Pujols (hamstring) is in the Angels' starting lineup on Tuesday versus the Mariners.

Pujols left Monday's game after feeling a cramp in his left hamstring following a three-run double in the bottom of the third inning. He got treatment on Monday night and again on Tuesday afternoon.
Sep 16 - 5:37 PM

Oswaldo Arcia (back) is not in the Twins' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Tigers.

Arcia left Monday's game after tweaking a muscle in the upper-left part of his back on a swing-and-miss in the bottom of the sixth inning. He is day-to-day.
Sep 16 - 5:29 PM

Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) played three innings of first base Tuesday in a simulated game at the Nationals' spring training complex in Florida.

Zimmerman hit two doubles in five at-bats and ran the bases without issue. He is expected to play five innings at first base on Wednesday with an eye on returning to the Nationals' active roster in some capacity for the final week of the regular season.
Sep 16 - 5:17 PM

George Springer (quad) is done for the year.

Springer has not made enough progress from his quad strain and the Astros don't want him to push it too hard. The 24-year-old outfielder wound up posting an .804 OPS, 20 home runs, 51 RBI, and five stolen bases over his first 78 games at the major league level. He should be a fantasy monster in 2015.

John Lackey (arm) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday evening at Busch Stadium.

Lackey was skipped from his last turn in the Cardinals' starting rotation due to a case of dead arm, but he is in line to return Friday and is expected to do just that. The veteran right-hander owns a rough 5.05 ERA in 46 1/3 innings since joining St. Louis.

Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Tuesday due to lingering wrist discomfort.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters that he'll rely on Teixeira to tell the team when he's ready to return. It's a day-to-day situation for now. Teixeira had surgery on that same wrist last season.
Sep 16 - 5:06 PM

Rusney Castillo is expected to make his major league debut on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.

Castillo has played at three different levels of the Red Sox' minor league system over the past two weeks and will now make the big jump to the majors. The dynamic 27-year-old Cuban signed a record seven-year, $72.5 million contract with Boston on August 22. He'll start in center field in his MLB debut.
