Yu Darvish racked up eight strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's season finale against the Angels, giving him a league-best 277 punch-outs on the season.

Darvish was forced to settle for a no-decision after allowing two runs on four hits and a pair of walks in the game. The 27-year-old right-hander certainly lived up to the massive expectations set before him this season, registering a 13-9 record, 2.83 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 277/80 K/BB ratio over 209 2/3 innings. There's a strong possibility that he'll be the first starting pitcher not named Clayton Kershaw going off draft boards next spring.

Alex Colome (illness) will rejoin the Rays' rotation this weekend in Baltimore.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times suggests that Friday would be the most likely day. Colome got a late start to spring training due to a visa issue and then went down with pneumonia, but he's healthy now and spun six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham. The young right-hander is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' lineup again Monday with an undisclosed injury.

Braun requested the day off Sunday due to a physical issue not related to his surgically-repaired right thumb and has now missed two straight starts. He's dealt with a rib cage ailment this month but it's unclear at the moment if that's what's bothering him again. The Brewers should provide more on his status later Monday. Gerardo Parra is in right field again in Braun's place.

Trevor Bauer (illness) will return to the Indians' rotation Tuesday against the Royals.

Bauer had to be scratched Saturday due to food poisoning, but he felt well enough to play catch on Sunday. The 24-year-old boasts a 0.95 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 26/11 K/BB ratio in 19 innings this season and showed improved control in his most recent outing. He's a must-own in all mixed fantasy leagues.

Rangers acquired OF Josh Hamilton from the Angels for cash considerations.

The deal was officially announced by the Angels' Twitter account on Monday afternoon. Anaheim is expected to eat $68 million of the $80 million still owed to Hamilton from his original five-year, $125 million agreement with the club. He'll get a fresh restart in Texas after a falling out with the Angels brought on by his offseason alcohol and cocaine relapse. Hamilton is expected to be recovered from shoulder surgery in mid- to late-May and carries considerably more fantasy value with the Rangers than he would have with the Halos.

Alex Rodriguez is starting at third base for the Yankees on Monday night versus the Rays.

It's his second start of the season at the hot corner. A-Rod has been among the most productive players in baseball in the early going this year, boasting a .989 OPS with five home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 18 games for the Yankees. He's one home run away from tying Willie Mays on the all-time leaderboard.

Marlins activated C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the paternity leave list; designated him for assignment.

Salty was signed to a three-year, $21 million free agent contract before the 2014 season, but he struggled in his first summer with Miami and was off to a terrible start in 2015. 24-year-old prospect J.T. Realmuto has emerged as the Marlins' best option at catcher. Salty will presumably pass through waivers because of the money he is owed. He would then hit the free agent market, and should draw considerable interest there.

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

It's just a day of rest for Ramirez. Gordon Beckham is starting at shortstop and Conor Gillaspie 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.
Apr 27 - 3:03 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.
