Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com reports that the Cubs will interview Padres executive Brad Ausmus on Friday for their managerial vacancy.

Ausmus will be the sixth person to interview for the job, but Levine notes that he was "always high" on the Cubs' wish list. David Kaplan of CSNChicago.com indicated earlier this week that Ausmus could shoot to the top of the list if he interviews well. Former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria have already been promised second interviews.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup again on Monday.

Bautista also sat out Sunday after getting a cortisone injection in his ailing right shoulder. He's been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a month, but the Blue Jays are expected to keep the slugger active and continue using him as their primary designated hitter. Edwin Encarnacion is at DH on Monday against the White Sox and Justin Smoak is at first base.

Pirates activated RHP Charlie Morton from the 15-day disabled list.

Morton will make his 2015 debut for the Pirates on Monday night against the Marlins. He posted very good numbers on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment and could be worth a shot in some standard mixed fantasy leagues.
May 25 - 3:16 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Monday night versus the Mariners.

Cabrera was forced from Sunday's series finale against the A's with a mild groin strain. He's considered day-to-day. Tim Beckham is at shortstop on Monday.
May 25 - 2:51 PM

Steven Souza (wrist) is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Monday evening against the Mariners.

Souza suffered a sprained left wrist Sunday in a nasty collision at home plate with A's catcher Stephen Vogt and is considered day-to-day for now. Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and Jake Elmore is in left field in Monday's series opener versus Seattle.

Rays placed 1B James Loney on the 15-day disabled list with a broken finger.

It was initially called a sprain, but further testing revealed the fracture. It's not clear how long Loney might be out. Tampa Bay will use a mix of players at first base. Logan Forsythe is starting there Monday night.
May 25 - 2:39 PM

Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is expected to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Doolittle has spent the first two months of the 2015 regular season rehabbing a slight tear in his left rotator cuff. He allowed five runs in five innings on his rehab assignment, so the A's will likely ease him back into high-leverage situations. The 28-year-old southpaw should eventually take over for Tyler Clippard at closer.
May 25 - 2:05 PM

Blue Jays activated SS Jose Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.

Reyes is back with the Jays after missing four weeks with a cracked rib. He went 4-for-11 with two RBI on a three-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo and should be activated immediately in fantasy leagues. The veteran shortstop was batting just .250/.266/.300 in 16 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry.
May 25 - 2:01 PM

Rangers placed RHP Neftali Feliz on the 15-day disabled list with an axillary abscess on his right side.

That doesn't sound very fun. Feliz was dumped from the Rangers' ninth-inning role in mid-May and Shawn Tolleson has handled the club's last three save opportunities with relative ease. Tolleson, who boasts a 29/4 K/BB ratio in 20 1/3 innings this season, is clearly the guy to own now from the Texas bullpen. There is no timetable for Neftali's return to action.
May 25 - 1:52 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Miguel Cabrera has been dealing with a "cranky ankle."

That's part of the reason for his absence Monday, though Ausmus said it's only a minor thing. Cabrera should return to the Tigers' starting lineup on Tuesday night. Hernan Perez is starting at first base for Detroit in Monday's series opener at Oakland's O.co Coliseum.
May 25 - 1:27 PM

Brett Lawrie is out of the A's lineup again Monday.

Lawrie hasn't played since Friday, and A's manager Bob Melvin acknowledged Sunday that the 25-year-old is "a little banged up." Max Muncy will handle the hot corner in Monday's afternoon opener against the Tigers.
May 25 - 1:14 PM

Athletics activated UTIL Ben Zobrist from the 15-day disabled list.

Zobrist wound up missing just under four weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery. It was initially expected that he would be out until the middle of June. The versatile 33-year-old had batted .240/.304/.400 with one home run, five doubles, eight RBI, and eight runs scored through his first 14 games this season.
