Jhoulys Chacin will undergo an MRI on his pitching shoulder Monday.

The Rockies are hoping the right-hander is just dealing with some inflammation, but they won't know until after the exam takes place. Chacin will be shut down until further notice. The 26-year-old is arguably the team's best starter, so losing him for a significant period of time would obviously be a big blow for the Rockies.

Devin Mesoraco had an MRI on his ailing left shoulder.

Zack Cozart (knee) is not expected to miss much time.

Cozart gave the Reds a bit of a scare when he was forced to exit Sunday's game against the Pirates with an injury to his surgically-repaired right knee, but he's merely dealing with some tendinitis and should be fine. He could play on Monday, but the Reds are understandably being cautious with him. Consider him day-to-day.

Homer Bailey (elbow) said Monday that he expects to be shut down for 5-7 days.

Bailey got roughed up in his most recent minor league rehab start last Tuesday and it was revealed on Sunday that he suffered a slight setback. It's not believed to be serious, so the Reds are hoping that a few days of rest will get him back on track. Bailey was previously expected to rejoin the Reds by mid-May, but his timetable is up in the air right now.

Braves optioned INF Jace Peterson to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Peterson was batting .182/.260/.205 in 50 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The former supplemental first-round draft pick has posted good numbers in the minors, but it just hasn't translated.

Yu Darvish (elbow) will make his next rehab start Friday with Triple-A Round Rock.

He'll go three innings, or around 45 pitches. Darvish was excellent in his rehab debut this weekend with Double-A Frisco, striking out two batters over two hitless innings. He's on track to join the Rangers' starting rotation around the end of May. The ace right-hander is 14 months removed from Tommy John surgery.

Randal Grichuk is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Monday night against the Phillies.

Grichuk was able to emerge from his brutal early-season slump, but he's back to flailing again so the Cardinals will give him a night of mental and physical rest. Stephen Piscotty is in center field, Brandon Moss is in right, and Matt Adams is at first base versus Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson.
May 2 - 3:18 PM

Jason Heyward is not in the Cubs' starting lineup Monday night against the Pirates.

It's just a day of rest for the $184 million right fielder, who went 0-for-5 on Sunday and is batting .211/.317/.256 over his first 104 plate appearances with the Cubs.
May 2 - 3:05 PM

Angel Pagan (hamstring) is out Monday versus the Reds.

Mac Williamson, called up Monday morning, will start in left field and bat sixth against Cincinnati left-hander Brandon Finnegan. Pagan suffered a mild hamstring on Sunday and will likely be out for much of this week, though he is expected to avoid the disabled list.
May 2 - 2:46 PM

Zach Britton (ankle) expects to be available out of the Orioles' bullpen within the next few days.

Britton sprained his left ankle Saturday while trying to field an Adam Eaton bunt. X-rays turned up negative and he told reporters Monday that he's already feeling much better. He should return at some point this week.
May 2 - 2:44 PM

J.J. Hardy has been diagnosed with a small fracture in his left foot and will be placed on the disabled list.

Hardy fouled a ball off the foot in the fourth inning Sunday and a CT scan taken Monday morning revealed a broken bone. MASN's Roch Kubatko says the Orioles are expecting this to be an absence of 6-8 weeks. Manny Machado moved from third base to shortstop Sunday and Pedro Alvarez took over at the hot corner. Ryan Flaherty and Paul Janish will likely factor into the mix at those positions over the next couple of months. Chris Davis can play a little third base too.
May 2 - 2:18 PM

Hunter Harvey needs surgery for a sports hernia and will be sidelined the next 4-6 weeks.

Harvey visited a specialist in Philadelphia on Monday after experiencing renewed groin discomfort. It's something he's been dealing with since late March. The former top prospect missed the entire 2015 season with a broken leg and elbow troubles, and he was shut down early in 2014. Baltimore's front office is hopeful Harvey can begin pitching in minor league games around July 1. He has impressive pro numbers, but the star is fading.
