Max Scherzer could be available out of the bullpen in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Basically, it's all hands on deck as the Tigers attempt to keep their season alive. If Scherzer pitches and Detroit wins, Justin Verlander would pitch a deciding Game 5.

Kyle Schwarber is not in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

He'll take a seat against left-hander Ty Blach. Rookie Ian Happ is also out of the lineup. Ben Zobrist will start in left field and bat leadoff while Albert Almora, Jr. gets a start in center.

Angels optioned 1B C.J. Cron to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cron gets the boot one day after hitting a grand slam against the Mets. The 27-year-old has missed time with a foot injury this season while batting just .232/.281/.305 through 24 games. Still, he didn't get much of a leash after putting up a .792 OPS (115 OPS+) last season. The Angels can mix and match at first base with Luis Valbuena, Jefry Marte, and Albert Pujols.

Carlos Santana will start in right field Monday against the Reds in Cincinnati.

Santana will be pushed to right field with the designated hitter unavailable under National League rules. This will be Santana's fourth start in right field this season. Edwin Encarnacion is starting at first base and Bradley Zimmer is on the bench.

Josh Donaldson (calf) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Dunedin.

Donaldson will be joined by teammate Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) in his return to action. The 31-year-old has been sidelined since aggravating his right calf strain on April 13, but he's finally ready for game action. Assuming all goes well, he should be ready to rejoin the Jays within a few days. Fantasy owners are hoping that the long wait will be worth it.

The Nationals are calling up right-hander Joe Ross to start Tuesday against the Mariners.

Ross was surprisingly optioned to Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month, but his stint in the minors didn't last long. While he posted a 5.50 ERA over three starts in Triple-A, he threw seven innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and one walk in his most recent outing. The 22-year-old had a 7.47 ERA over three starts prior to his demotion, but he's capable of much better if he's right and is worth picking up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.

Junior Guerra (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list this week.

Good news for the first-place Brewers. Guerra, who went down on Opening Day with a right calf strain, allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and two walks in his second rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Colorado Springs. The Brewers haven't pinpointed a specific day, but he should return during the team's four-game series against the Diamondbacks later this week. Guerra was the team's best starter last season, putting up a 2.81 ERA over 20 starts.

Phil Hughes will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with stiffness in his throwing shoulder.

Hughes gave up five runs -- including three homers -- over just four innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals. He said after the game that he's feeling "a lot of the same symptoms I was experiencing last year" prior to surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, but more should be known after he's examined on Monday. Hughes has struggled with a 5.74 ERA over nine starts this season.

Mike Napoli clobbered his 10th home run of the season on Sunday as the Rangers dispatched the Tigers 5-2.

Napoli finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a pair of walks. His mammoth blast into the camera well in center field in the fifth inning traveled an estimated 452 feet. Even with the strong day at the plate though, Napoli is still hitting just .188/.262/.416 with 10 homers and 23 RBI on the season.

Salvador Perez crushed a pair of home runs as the Royals fell to the Twins in the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader.

Perez had already gone deep earlier in the afternoon during the first game of the twin bill. He launched a two-run homer off of Aldaberto Mejia in the first inning then added on a solo blast in the fourth inning. Perez finished the night 2-for-4 and is now slashing .280/.321/.547 with 11 long balls and 28 RBI on the season.

Clayton Richard was marvelous in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks, surrendering just one run on five hits while tossing a complete game.

Outside of a Chris Iannetta solo home run in the third inning, Richard kept the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard. He struck out six without walking a batter in the contest. While this was a very strong performance, consistency has not been Richard's forte of late. He has allowed at least five runs in three of his last six starts, but just four total runs in his other three outings combined over that period. On the whole, he holds a 4.31 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over the course of 10 starts. A tough home showdown with the Nationals awaits him next time he takes to the mound.
