Dustin Ackley's hot hitting continued Friday against the Astros, as he finished 4-for-5 with four RBI.

Ackley had three singles and a triple. The four hits established a new career-high while the four RBI matched his career best. The 25-year-old is now hitting .411 this month and has pulled his batting average up from .215 to .261 in the process. With his multi-position eligibility, he could be a useful option down the stretch in deeper mixed leagues.

Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that moving Ivan Nova has become "the next priority" for the Yankees following the Aroldis Chapman deal.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported earlier in the day Monday that team executives have been pushing for a trade involving Nova, so things could come together quickly now that the Chapman deal is finalized. "They're focused on him," a major-league source told Feinsand. "They're looking at the guys with expiring contracts first - though not Beltran right now." Nova, an impending free agent, has posted a 4.65 ERA and 72/22 K/BB ratio over 93 innings this season. In a weak market for starters, he could draw some interest as rotation depth.

Joe Panik (concussion) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Panik had to briefly halt his minor league rehab assignment last week, but he's back on track now and could join the Giants by the end of the week if all goes well. The 25-year-old has been out since June 27 due to concussion symptoms.

Monday's game between the Cardinals and Mets was postponed due to rain.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET. Monday's starters, Noah Syndergaard and Carlos Martinez are expected to be pushed back to Game 1 on Tuesday. Jaime Garcia and Bartolo Colon will pitch the nightcap.

Brandon Belt was moved down to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Belt has been the primary No. 3 hitter dating back to mid-June, but he's batting just .185 with zero homers and a .589 OPS this month. Jarrett Parker will get an opportunity to hit third Monday against Anthony DeSclafani.

Melvin Upton is out of the Padres' lineup for a second straight day Monday.

It's obviously a bit curious as Upton's name continues to float in trade rumors, but Padres manager Andy Green said that nothing is done yet and that the decision was made to give him a couple of days off. It still sounds very likely he'll be traded by August 1. Alex Dickerson will start in left field again Monday.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Domingo Santana had a "big setback" with his right elbow.

Santana was scratched from a rehab game on Monday after feeling continued soreness in his elbow. He'll be shut down for now, but suddenly his ability contribute at all in the second half is in question. Santana has been sidelined since June 7.

Chris Sale will make his return Thursday against the Cubs.

The White Sox suspended Sale for five games after he cut up some throwback uniforms with a knife as a bizarre form of protest. There's a chance that Thursday could be a final start with the White Sox, as the trade deadline is approaching and there has been quite a bit of a chatter about a possible deal. Of course, it would require a monster haul for Chicago to part with him and they might not see the sort of offers they want.

Rockies purchased the contract of OF David Dahl from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dahl has officially been called up to the majors and will bat sixth and play left field in his major league debut Monday against the Orioles. The 22-year-old has batted .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, and 17 steals over 92 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. It's unclear how the playing time will shake out, but there could be a clear path if Carlos Gonzalez and/or Charlie Blackmon are traded. Obviously the fantasy potential is huge here, especially by virtue of playing half of his games in Coors Field.

The Rangers expect Prince Fielder to undergo season-ending neck surgery later this week.

It's not unexpected after Fielder was placed on the disabled list last week with a herniated disk in his neck. He required fusion surgery on his neck two years ago, but the specifics of this week's procedure isn't yet known. Either way, he's done for the year and at this point, his future is very much up in the air. He's still under contract through 2020.

Maikel Franco (wrist) is back in the Phillies' lineup Monday against the Marlins.

Franco hasn't started since Friday due to a bruised wrist, but he entered the game Sunday after Andres Blanco fractured his left index finger. He's batting third against Jarred Cosart on Monday.
Jul 25 - 4:49 PM

Josh Reddick (back) has returned to the Athletics' starting lineup Monday against the Rangers.

Reddick missed consecutive starts over the weekend due to back soreness, but he was able to play some defense on Sunday. It's not a major concern.
