The Mariners have officially announced the hiring of Lloyd McClendon as manager.

Athletics bench coach Chip Hale, Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach and former major league infielder Joey Cora also received second interviews before the Mariners decided on McClendon. McClendon went 336–446 during his five years as the Pirates' manager, though he didn't have much talent on hand. He served as the Tigers' hitting coach for the last seven seasons.

Rays recalled RHP Jose De Leon from Triple-A Durham.

This confirms a report from ESPN's Buster Olney. De Leon is expected to provide some bullpen depth behind Erasmo Ramirez for Monday's game against the Rangers. He's obviously a name to keep an eye on, but it's unclear if he'll stick around for long.

Daniel Murphy (illness) has returned to the Nationals' lineup Monday against the Giants.

Murphy was held out of the starting lineup over the weekend while dealing with a stomach bug. He should be good to go moving forward.

Ben Zobrist (wrist) has returned to the Cubs' lineup Monday against the Padres.

Zobrist missed back-to-back games over the weekend after tweaking his left wrist during Friday's game, but he's feeling better now. He'll hit leadoff and start in right field while Jason Heyward will play center. Miguel Montero will start behind the plate and catch Kyle Hendricks.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that Steven Matz (elbow) will make one more rehab start.

The same goes for Seth Lugo, who is making his way back from an elbow injury. Matz was brilliant in his latest start Sunday with Triple-A Las Vegas, striking out eight batters over five perfect innings. However, the Mets want him to get stretched out to 90 pitches before making his return. Matz has been out all season with a flexor strain, but he could provide a huge boost to this rotation if he's right.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that the club hopes Yoenis Cespedes (quad, hamstring) will be ready in 7-10 days.

Cespedes originally landed on the disabled list in late April with a left hamstring injury, but he was held out of a rehab game over the weekend with right quad soreness. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like a major concern right now. The Mets are hoping Cespedes will be able to DH when the club squares off against the Rangers next week.

Cardinals optioned OF Randal Grichuk to High-A Palm Beach.

The move clears a spot for Jose Martinez's return from the disabled list. Grichuk has struggled with a .222/.276/.377 batting line across 46 games this season and the Cardinals want him to work on his strike zone discipline in the minors. Tommy Pham will get a chance at regular playing time, and deservedly so.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Alex Wood (SC joint inflammation) is only expected to miss one start.

It's an encouraging development. Wood was placed on the disabled list Monday with left SC joint inflammation, but it's not considered a long-term issue. Fantasy owners surely hope so, as the southpaw owns a brilliant 1.69 ERA through eight starts and two relief appearances this season.
May 29 - 12:26 PM

Adam Jones (ankle, hip) has been scratched from Monday's lineup against the Yankees.

Jones was in the original lineup, but he apparently didn't feel 100 percent during his morning workout. Consider him day-to-day. Joey Rickard will cover center field duties again.
May 29 - 12:02 PM

Miguel Sano has returned to the Twins' lineup on Monday against the Astros.

Sano was held out of the lineup for back-to-back games over the weekend in order to clear his head and work on his swing. The young slugger has one hit in his last 16 at-bats with 12 strikeouts. He should get back to mashing soon enough.

Red Sox activated LHP David Price from the 10-day disabled list.

Price will make his long-awaited season debut Monday against the White Sox. The southpaw allowed six runs in 5 2/3 innings over two minor league rehab starts, but the most important thing is that he didn't have any issues with his elbow. The Red Sox have been playing much better recently and getting a healthy Price back should provide a big lift to this rotation.

Jameson Taillon (cancer) struck out six batters over three scoreless innings Sunday in his first rehab start with Double-A Altoona.

Taillon underwent surgery earlier this month to treat testicular cancer, but he was able to quickly return to game action. He was very sharp in his first rehab start, allowing just one hit and one walk while throwing 29 out of 47 pitches for strikes. Taillon should be ready to rejoin the Pirates' soon, but manager Clint Hurdle doesn't want to rush him. "We don't have expectations, and we want to take it slow with him so he doesn't feel any unneeded urgency," said Hurdle. "He needs to get right when he's right ... this is uncharted territory."
