Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com reports that Derek Holland's left knee surgery last week was a microfracture procedure.

It explains why the Rangers wasted no time in pegging a midseason return for the left-hander. Holland, who was injured when his dog tripped him as he was running up the stairs, had the cartilage behind his left kneecap repaired during the operation. Because it's not a weight-bearing bone, it's possible his absence won't be as long as others that have had microfracture surgery.

Koji Uehara (pectoral) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as next Monday.

Great news for Uehara, who threw 20 pitches to hitters in a simulated workout on Monday. He still has two bullpen sessions coming up, but things are moving in the right direction. Uehara has been sidelined since July 20 with a pectoral strain, but his return would be a big boost to the back-end of Boston's bullpen.

Alex Cobb (elbow) will make his return to the Rays' rotation Friday against the Blue Jays.

The wait is finally over, as Cobb will make his first start in the majors since September 28, 2014. The veteran right-hander posted a 6.65 ERA over eight starts during his minor league rehab assignment and should be considered a wait-and-see option in fantasy leagues. The Rays are expected to use a six-man rotation in September.

Ian Kinsler will bat second Monday against the White Sox.

Kinsler has batted leadoff in all 123 of his starts this season, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is trying something different. Cameron Maybin will bat leadoff against James Shields.

Yulieski Gurriel will start at third base for Monday's game against the Athletics.

It will be his first action in the field since joining the Astros. Gurriel is 5-for-14 (.357) with two doubles and two RBI through his first six games in the majors. Alex Bregman will slide into the DH spot on Monday.

Jacob deGrom will return to the Mets' rotation Friday against the Nationals.

DeGrom has struggled over his last two starts and will be skipped in the rotation on Monday in order to give him a bit of a breather. His return will push Noah Syndergaard's next start back to Saturday.

Neil Walker (back) is out of the Mets' lineup again Monday against the Marlins.

Walker has now missed consecutive games due to a back injury from earlier this month. He's been red-hot for a while now, so his absence really hurts. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Aug 29 - 4:08 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) is out of Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

Cabrera exited Sunday's game after aggravating a left knee injury in a collision at first base. It's unclear when the NL Player of the Week will be ready to return to action.
Aug 29 - 4:07 PM

Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is back in the Mets' lineup Monday against the Marlins.

Cespedes was held out of Sunday's lineup due to a mild aggravation of his recent quad injury, but he's going to try to give it a go on Monday. The Mets might have to try to manage it the rest of the way.
Aug 29 - 4:05 PM

Adam Eaton (forearm) is in the White Sox starting lineup Monday night against the Tigers.

Eaton left Sunday's series finale against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch off his forearm in the fourth inning. X-rays obviously turned up negative.

Indians placed RHP Danny Salazar on the paternity leave list.

He'll be back before his next turn in the rotation Saturday against the Marlins. Salazar showed a lot of positive signs Sunday afternoon against the Rangers, striking out 10 batters while yielding two runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings. Shawn Armstrong was called up from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding roster move.
Aug 29 - 3:27 PM

Adam Jones (hamstring) remains absent from the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday.

Jones told reporters Monday afternoon that his left hamstring feels much better, but he'll take at least one more day of treatment and rest. He tweaked the hamstring last Thursday and then reaggravated it Friday.
