Alexei Ramirez is not in the White Sox starting lineup Monday versus the Orioles.

It's just a day of rest for Ramirez. Conor Gillaspie is starting at shortstop and Gordon Beckham is playing third base Monday against O's righty Ubaldo Jimenez.
Apr 27 - 3:14 PM

Jake McGee (elbow) is due to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

McGee was originally slated to join Charlotte on Monday, but the Rays wanted to see a couple more bullpen sessions from the left-hander, who's coming off December elbow surgery. He's now trending toward an early-May debut, and the talented 28-year-old should move back into Tampa Bay's ninth-inning gig rather quickly. McGee posted a 1.89 ERA in 71 1/3 innings last season.
Apr 27 - 3:08 PM

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the Reds' starting lineup again on Monday.

Mesoraco drew a walk as a pinch-hitter on Sunday, but he still isn't able to catch due to a lingering left hip impingement. The 26-year-old slugger has logged just three at-bats since April 12, yet the Reds have refused to place him on the disabled list. Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate on Monday night against the Brewers.

Josh Hamilton has been spotted at the Rangers' Globe Life Park.

Which presumably means the trade sending him from Anaheim to Texas has been completed and will be formally announced on Monday afternoon. The Angels are reportedly going to eat $68 million of the $80 million owed to Hamilton. His deal will also now reportedly carry an opt-out clause for after the 2016 season. Hamilton is due back from shoulder surgery in mid-May. It's a pretty great deal for Texas if the 33-year-old outfielder can stay on the straight and narrow.
Apr 27 - 2:54 PM

Jarrod Dyson is starting in right field for the Royals on Monday night against the Indians.

Dyson will bat ninth, but his speed should attract daily leaguers. The 30-year-old speedster is among the most aggressive base-stealer in the majors, boasting 120 steals in 361 career games (235 starts). Paulo Orlando will be on the bench Monday night.
Apr 27 - 2:49 PM

A second opinion of Justin Verlander's MRI results confirmed the initial diagnosis of a triceps strain.

Verlander remains shut down from throwing due to lingering soreness in the upper part of his throwing arm and he won't be cleared for catch until he's completely discomfort-free. The veteran right-hander seems unlikely to join the Tigers' rotation before the end of May. Kyle Lobstein has been filling in.
Apr 27 - 2:36 PM

Mike Napoli is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday night against the Blue Jays.

Napoli slugged his first home run of the season Saturday night at Camden Yards, but he followed that up with an 0-for-5 and two strikeouts in Sunday's series finale. The 33-year-old is batting just .169 with a .542 OPS in 18 games this season. Daniel Nava is at first base and Brock Holt is in right field Monday versus Toronto.
Apr 27 - 2:16 PM

Edinson Volquez has dropped the appeal of his five-game suspension.

Volquez was given the five-game sentence Saturday for his role in last Thursday's benches-clearing brawl with the White Sox, during which the right-hander landed a punch on an unsuspecting Chicago player. Volquez is eligible to return to the rotaiton May 2.
Apr 27 - 1:45 PM

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is planning to take batting practice before Monday's game in Boston.

He won't be in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Monday night, but Bautista does expect to return at some point during this three-game series at Fenway Park. The 34-year-old slugger has been out since last Tuesday with a right shoulder strain. He had four home runs and 10 RBI in 14 games before the injury.
Apr 27 - 12:42 PM

Nick Franklin (oblique) expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point this week.

Franklin seemed to be trending toward minor league games early last week, but the Rays slowed his rehab as a precautionary measure. The 24-year-old was poised to open the 2015 season as Tampa Bay's starting second baseman before suffering an oblique strain at the end of spring training. He should be ready to rock in early May and may carry some value in deep fantasy leagues.
