Rays re-signed RHP Albert Suarez to a minor league contract.

Injuries limited the 24-year-old right-hander to just two games at Double-A Montgomery in 2013, where he posted a 1.42 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 6/2 K/BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings. He'll continue to serve as organizational depth for the Rays.

Yunel Escobar left Monday's game against the Braves with an apparent left hand injury.

He appeared to be spiked by Andrelton Simmons as Simmons collided with him at third base. The Nationals should provide an update on Escobar's status before long.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Hunter Pence (forearm) is about a week away from taking batting practice.

Bochy conceded that it was an educated guess on his part, but it offers a rough timeline. Pence's recovery from a fractured forearm is coming alone a little more slowly than expected, as the Giants had hoped he'd be ready to go at the beginning of May. It's now looking like the best-case scenario for his return will be mid-May.

Pablo Sandoval left Monday's game versus the Blue Jays with neck soreness.

It's not clear how Sandoval suffered the injury, but the Red Sox should provide more on his status after the game. Sandoval had a two-RBI single and a solo homer before exiting.

Brandon McCarthy has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

It's really a bummer for the Dodgers but especially for McCarthy, who had seemed to finally put his shoulder issues behind him and show signs of blossoming. He'll undergo Tommy John surgery soon and be sidelined into the 2016 season. With Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) also still a question mark, the Dodgers might be scour the trade market for rotation help. For now, Scott Baker and Mike Bolsinger could stick around for a while.

Gregory Polanco was scratched from Monday's lineup with tightness in his left groin.

It's not clear when Polanco suffered the injury. He'll receive treatment and be re-evaluated during the game and an update on his status will likely be available later Monday. Andrew Lambo took his place in right field.

Reds placed RHP Homer Bailey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 24, with a right elbow ligament sprain.

Yikes. Bailey had made just two starts after working his way back from last September's flexor tendon surgery and now it appears he might be headed for Tommy John surgery. The Reds have yet to comment on whether Bailey will have an operation or if he'll try rehabbing the injury first. Raisel Iglesias and Michael Lorenzen are candidates to replace Bailey in the rotation.

Brandon Belt is absent from the Giants' lineup for the third straight day Monday.

It's bad timing with the club facing three straight left-handers, but it's discouraging that manager Bruce Bochy has no faith in Belt's ability versus southpaws. His career OPS against lefties (.771) is not much lower than it is versus righties (.790), but Bochy is, in effect, platooning Belt with Andrew Susac. Buster Posey is at first base again Monday, while Susac is behind the plate.

Monday's game between the White Sox and Orioles has been postponed due to the protests in Baltimore.

The decision was made after the O's consulted with the Baltimore City Police Department. No makeup date has been scheduled yet. Ubaldo Jimenez and Hector Noesi had been slated to start Monday.
Apr 27 - 6:27 PM

Rockies placed RHP Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with right triceps inflammation.

It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously it's good news that he appears to have no structural damage. John Axford picked up a save last week while Ottavino was unavailable and looks like the guy to own in fantasy leagues.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Monday that it's possible Domonic Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley once activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

"I don't know that he's ready (to face major league pitching)," Sandberg said of Brown, who is hitting just .188/.298/.292 on his rehab assignment. The Phillies must do something with the outfielder, as his rehab clock runs out after Tuesday. It's hard to believe they wouldn't think Brown is a better option than Jeff Francoeur in right field, but it wouldn't be the first time Philly has made an odd decision.
Apr 27 - 5:53 PM

Adam Wainwright will undergo season-ending surgery on Thursday after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a torn left Achilles tendon on Saturday.

The operation carries a 9-12 month rehab schedule, although Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that he was optimistic the right would be ready for spring training. Wainwright, who will turn 34 in August, has three years remaining on his contract after 2015. The Cards will go with either Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney as his replacement in the rotation for now, but Marco Gonzales (shoulder/pectoral) is expected back soon.
