Will Venable might not play again this season due to what Padres manager Bud Black refers to as an "abdominal situation."

"It's where the hip flexor meets the abdomen, he's a little sore," Black said. "We are going to keep an eye on him for the next 24, 48 hours." Black added that Venable has been nursing the ailment for "couple of weeks," though it's not clear how he suffered it. It would be an unfortunate ending to what has been a nice year for Venable, who has batted .268/.310/.482 with 22 homers and 22 steals.

Matt Duffy (wrist) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Duffy took a pitch off his left wrist during Monday's game, but fortunately X-rays came back negative. The hope is that he'll be ready to return in the next day or two. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at third base.

Bryce Harper (knee) is absent from Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

Harper suffered a right knee contusion when he was hit by a pitch on Monday and will get a day of rest. Consider him day-to-day. Jayson Werth will slide over to right field in his absence while Clint Robinson will get a start in left.

Carlos Carrasco will be activated from the disabled list to start Thursday against the Royals.

Carrasco, out since late-April with a hamstring strain, tossed four innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts in his lone minor league rehab start with Double-A Akron on Saturday. He'll be limited to around 80 pitches in his return to action.
May 31 - 3:25 PM

Dexter Fowler (heel) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Dodgers.

Fowler was held out of Monday's lineup with a sore right heel, but he's going to try to give it a go. Jason Heyward will move back over to right field while Jorge Soler will play left.
May 31 - 3:21 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' lineup again Tuesday against the Pirates.

Stanton has now missed seven straight starts due soreness in his right side, but the Marlins continue to say that he's not too far off. Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff.
May 31 - 3:14 PM

Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list next Monday.

That's the first day he's eligible. Marte, who has been out since May 21 with a left thumb sprain, will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday. He's expected to play a total of five games through Saturday before rejoining the Mariners. The 22-year-old was batting .276/.307/.378 with five steals in 40 games prior to the injury.
May 31 - 2:11 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

D'Arnaud, who has been out since late April with a strained right rotator cuff, resumed baseball activities last week in Florida. The big test will be game action. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, the Mets could send Kevin Plawecki to Triple-A upon his return and keep Rene Rivera as the backup.
May 31 - 1:47 PM

Carlos Gomez will bat seventh in his return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

This is where he batted most of the time before hitting the disabled list with a bruised left rib cage earlier this month. The 30-year-old returns to a disappointing .182/.238/.248 batting line.
May 31 - 12:30 PM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.
