Matt Reynolds will undergo Tommy John surgery next Tuesday.

Reynolds has been rehabbing a slight tear in his UCL for the past couple of months and recently suffered a setback. He's now at risk for missing the entire 2014 season.

Aroldis Chapman (head) has been cleared to throw live batting practice.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Wednesday that Chapman could be cleared before the end of the team's road trip, and it turns out he's been cleared on the first day of their 10-day trip. It seems like the reliever might be a tad ahead of schedule, but the Reds haven't said as much, only offering that Chapman is coming along well. A mid-May return has been expected.

Cole Hamels (biceps) tossed seven innings of one-run ball Thursday for High-A Clearwater in what is expected to be his final rehab start.

Hamels gave up just three hits, walked one and struck out two. The left-hander has posted a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio over his 17 rehab innings to this point, clearing the way for him to rejoin the Phillies' rotation early next week. Assuming the club keeps Hamels on schedule, he'll make his season debut on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.

Sergio Santos completely lost the strike zone after taking over in the eighth inning on Thursday, walking all three Twins he faced and taking his first blown save.

Unfortunately, the Blue Jays had already run through all of their decent bullpen options when Santos imploded. As a result, J.A. Happ was brought in to try to stop the bleeding, yet he only made it worse, walking three batters of his own in what ended up being a six-run inning. Santos, for his part, never walked in a run. Instead, he threw three run-scoring wild pitches, which is a pretty amazing feat. Just four of his 16 pitches were strikes. Santos entered the game 4-for-4 in save chances and with three walks on the season, none in his last three appearances. Hopefully, this was just one big fluke. If not, then the Blue Jays will be forced to go to Steve Delabar and Aaron Loup in save chances.

Adam Wainwright was on his game Thursday, striking out eight in an 8-0 two-hit shutout of the Nationals.

Waino walked three, but the only hit he allowed before a sharp single from Adam LaRoche with two outs in the ninth was a high chopper off the plate by Ian Desmond in the second inning. He retired 18 batters in a row at one point. While Wainwright has issued an uncharacteristic nine free passes over his first four outings, he also boasts a 1.80 ERA with 32 strikeouts across 30 frames. The tall right-hander will square off against the Mets and Pirates next week.

Michael Cuddyer left Thursday's game against the Padres with a left hamstring cramp.

He came up gimpy after grounding out to shortstop in the seventh inning. It's good that the Rockies are only calling it a cramp, and they're listing Cuddyer as day-to-day for now. Still, he figures to miss at least a game or two.

Robinson Cano belted his first homer as a Mariner Thursday -- a three-run shot -- in a loss to the Rangers.

It was Cano's only hit in five trips to the plate, but it was a big one as it began a six-run rally in the third inning to give the M's a short-lived lead. Cano has driven in eight runs in his first 15 games with Seattle but has just three extra-base hits and is sporting a rather pedestrian .271/.333/.356 batting line.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that Doug Fister (lat) is on pace to make his debut for the Nationals on May 7.

It's possible the exact date will be altered a bit, but that's the day that looks to make the most sense right now. Fister threw two innings Thursday in an extended spring training game and had "no issues," according to manager Matt Williams. "He felt good about it," Williams added. "Reports are his first inning was better than his second inning, which is a good sign." Fister will begin a once-every-five-days schedule and is on pace to make his season debut in three weeks.

Shane Victorino (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Victorino was originally scheduled to begin his rehab assignment earlier, but inclement weather got in the way. The plan calls for him to play Saturday before getting the day off. He'll then play back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday, setting up a return on Thursday. The veteran outfielder was forced to begin the year on the DL with a hamstring strain.
Apr 17 - 5:57 PM

Royals placed OF Lorenzo Cain on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

It's not a big surprise, as Cain left Wednesday's game against the Astros with a Grade 1 groin strain. He's hoping to return in two weeks, but won't rush things. Jarrod Dyson should see and uptick in playing time during his absence and is worth picking up for fantasy owners who need speed.
Apr 17 - 5:35 PM

Manny Machado (knee) ran the bases again Thursday.

Machado ran the bases for the first time Wednesday, so it's a good sign that he was right back out there. The plan calls for him to slide for the first time Friday and play in an extended spring training game on Saturday. He's beginning to make encouraging progress.
Apr 17 - 5:17 PM

Mike Napoli (finger) is back in the starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide, but he managed to avoid a more serious injury. He'll bat cleanup Thursday against Chris Sale.
