Latest Headlines

Monday night's game between the Nationals and Braves in Washington, D.C. has been postponed.

There was a mass shooting Monday morning at the U.S. Navy Yard, adjacent to the Nationals' home stadium, that left 12 people dead. Calling the game was the right decision, even if no threat remains in the area. Dan Haren was scheduled to pitch for the Nats and Mike Minor was on tap for the visiting Braves. There will be a split doubleheader on Tuesday.

J.J. Hardy departed Sunday's game against the White Sox after fouling a ball off his left foot.

It's unclear whether Hardy will undergo an X-ray or whether his exit was purely precautionary. The Orioles should have an update on their shortstop's status later Sunday.

Josh Hamilton has been pulled off his rehab assignment after feeling soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee during his first rehab game Saturday.

Sadly, this comes as no surprise. Hamilton has been given a cortisone shot and the Rangers aren't ruling out him resuming his rehab assignment later this week, but that obviously isn't a given to happen. Hamilton had been expected back in mid-May, but that surely won't happen now.

Scott Van Slyke (back) is not expected to return before June.

Van Slyke has been out for three weeks with a lower back injury and still hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities. The 29-year-old has been a weapon for the Dodgers against left-handed pitching the last few seasons, so his absence for what looks like will be at least a couple months is notable.

Jhonny Peralta (thumb) fielded grounders on Sunday.

It's the first time he's done so since having surgery to repair a torn left thumb ligament. The Cardinals have pegged May 21 as the beginning of Peralta's rehab assignment, putting him on pace to return in early June if all goes well. Aledmys Diaz had a fantastic April and should still play regularly somewhere even after Peralta returns if he keeps hitting. However, Peralta figures to be an everyday player, as well, whether it's at shortstop or third base.

Mike Napoli (neck) remained out of the Indians' lineup Sunday.

He's sat out the last two contests with a stiff neck. Napoli should be fine in a day or two. Carlos Santana is filling in at first base. The Indians are also resting Michael Brantley and Juan Uribe on Sunday, as Rajai Davis is in left field and Jose Ramirez is at third base.
May 1 - 12:20 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not expected to be ready to play by Tuesday.

Garcia tweaked his hamstring on Friday and is sitting out his second straight game Sunday. It appears he won't be ready after Monday's off day, either, although there hasn't been talk of a disabled list stint yet. Jerry Sands will handle the designated hitter duties while Garcia is out.
May 1 - 12:17 PM

Kris Bryant (ankle) is back in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

Bryant didn't play Friday and wasn't in Saturday's lineup before the game was rained out after spraining his right ankle Thursday. He's feeling better now, though, and is in left field and batting third Sunday. The Cubs have Tommy La Stella at third base and Jorge Soler on the bench.
May 1 - 11:40 AM

Reds placed RHP Raisel Iglesias on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias felt a "pinch" in the shoulder while throwing a bullpen session Friday. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but it's noteworthy that he also dealt with fatigue in his shoulder late last season. Tim Adleman is replacing Iglesias in the Reds' rotation.
May 1 - 11:31 AM

White Sox activated RHP David Robertson from the bereavement list.

Robertson was away from the club for a few days following the death of his father-in-law. Tommy Kahnle has been sent back to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
May 1 - 11:27 AM

Reds manager Bryan Price revealed Sunday that Homer Bailey (elbow) has suffered a "slight setback."

The club doesn't think it's serious, although it's unclear how long this might delay Bailey's return. The Reds are also dealing with a setback for Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) and a shoulder injury to Raisel Iglesias. Bailey had been expected back by mid-May.
May 1 - 11:23 AM

Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) remained out of the Reds' lineup Sunday.

Mesoraco is dealing with some stiffness in his left shoulder, although he's expected back in the lineup soon. Tucker Barnhart is behind the dish again Sunday.
