Pirates activated OF Starling Marte from the 15-day disabled list.

Marte has been sidelined since August 19 with a hand contusion, and while he's been activated he's still unable to hit. He'll likely be used as a pinch runner and possibly a defensive replacement as he works his way back to being able to swing comfortably. Fantasy owners should keep him on their bench until he's able to return in an everyday capacity.

Noah Syndergaard exited Sunday's start against the Nationals with an apparent arm injury.

Syndergaard had his usual velocity, but the Nats throttled him for five runs over 1 1/3 frames before the right-hander walked off the field with a trainer. Thor was diagnosed with biceps tendinitis just a few days ago but refused an MRI and said he felt fine when he threw on Friday. It looked like he was pointing to his lat on Sunday, so it's possible he has a new injury. A stint on the disabled list is undoubtedly coming here, it's just a question as to how much time Syndergaard will miss. The Mets should have more on his status after the game.

Rockies activated INF/OF Ian Desmond from the 10-day disabled list.

Desmond looked so good during at-bats in extended spring training that he's making a return a little earlier than expected. He's starting in left field Sunday and will see plenty of playing time there with Mark Reynolds hitting so well as the first baseman. David Dahl (rib) is due back before long, so manager Bud Black will have some difficult decisions.

The Dodgers' plan for the time being is to keep Rich Hill (blister) in the rotation.

The club had mulled over a move to the bullpen, with the thinking that using Hill in shorter doses would help to keep his nagging blister issue in control. That move may still be in the cards down the line, but the plan for now is to keep the lefty in the rotation. Hill will begin a rehab assignment Thursday. "I know we talked about it," manager Dave Roberts said, "but for the short term and the near term, we’re going to build him back up as a starter and insert him when we feel he’s healthy and can sustain health."

Joc Pederson (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday or Thursday

Pederson ran the bases Sunday, clearing the way for his return to game action. He'll be activated on Friday if all goes well. The Dodgers still plan to send Cody Bellinger back to the minors once Pederson returns.

Aaron Sanchez left Sunday's start versus the Rays after just one inning after splitting the nail on his right middle finger again.

Sanchez was making his first start since returning from minor surgery to remove part of the nail from his finger. He's almost surely headed back to the disabled list, but the Blue Jays should have more on his status after the game.

Lucas Duda felt a "twinge" in his left elbow in his first rehab game with High-A St. Lucie on Friday, according to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson.

It explains why he wasn't in St. Lucie's lineup Saturday or Sunday. It doesn't appear to be a major setback at this point, but Duda will be shut down until at least Tuesday. We should know more about his potential return later this week.

Aaron Nola felt continued soreness in his lower back following a bullpen session Friday.

The hope had been that Nola would be ready to return to the Phillies' rotation on Monday, but that obviously won't happen now. "After he completed it, he had some symptoms, some soreness or tightness, I guess," manager Pete Mackanin said. "It was decided he will not make his start on Monday. He will be reevaluated to determine his next bullpen. A couple of days ago he said he felt great and then [Friday] not so great. He's improving but he's not 100 percent. There's something bugging him. We're just going to take it day to day. We're being cautious with him this early in the season." With Nola's return date looking uncertain, Nick Pivetta could be in the Philly rotation for a while.

Chris Davis was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore right elbow.

Davis' elbow is still a little tender after he was hit by a pitch on Saturday. He still wanted to play Sunday, so it's probably safe to assume he'll be back in there Monday. Trey Mancini has moved from right field to first base and Craig Gentry entered the lineup in right.

Rajai Davis (hamstring) is on track to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

It's the first day he's eligible to return. Davis has batted only .214/.262/.375 in the early going for the Athletics, but he'll get his center field job back upon activation and should also spend plenty of time in the leadoff spot.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Sunday that the typical timetable for someone with Adam Eaton's (knee) injuries is 6-9 months.

More will be known after Eaton has surgery, but 6-9 months is the rough expectation right now. Rizzo noted that Eaton had a full thickness tear of his left ACL as well as a meniscus tear and high ankle sprain. The Nationals haven't officially ruled him out for the rest of the season, but that undoubtedly will happen after Eaton goes under the knife. Rizzo added that the club is confident it can fill the center field void internally. It will start with Michael Taylor, but Rafael Bautista also looms as an option. It seems unlikely that top prospect Victor Robles would be pushed to the majors this season given that he's only in High-A and won't turn 20 until next month.
Apr 30 - 11:20 AM

Athletics placed LHP Sean Manaea on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 27, with a left shoulder strain.

He's expected to miss just one start, as the A's could afford to make a DL move with Manaea with Sonny Gray (lat) coming off the DL this week. The left-hander is eligible for activation on May 7.
