Elvis Andrus (elbow) will return to Cactus League action on Friday.

Andrus went through a full workout Thursday and had no issues with his sore right elbow. The shortstop will be playing in his first game in a week and a half but will be fine for Opening Day as long as he avoids a setback.

Jered Weaver (hip) threw a bullpen session on Monday.

He threw all fastballs during the 20-pitch session and felt good afterwards. Weaver will toss another bullpen session in a few days and will incorporate all of his pitches that time. The veteran right-hander has missed the last week of action with left hip irritation and isn't expected to rejoin the Angels' rotation until after the All-Star break.

Alcides Escobar (finger) was a late scratch from the Royals' lineup Monday.

Escobar had to be pulled from Sunday's game because of a split nail on his right index finger. He admitted prior to Monday's game that he's having some pain when he throws and the Royals have decided to play it safe and scratch him. Consider Escobar day-to-day.

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Monday.

He was cleared for game action after working out with the Yankees over the weekend with no issues. Ellsbury will be used in the designated hitter spot for Tampa on Monday and is slated for 3-4 plate appearances. The Yankees expect him to need only a few rehab games, so Ellsbury could be activated from the disabled list before the end of the week.

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.

Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away.

Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to return to the lineup until at least Thursday.

Hosmer is nursing a sprain of his left ring finger. He had to be pinch-hit for on Sunday due to the ailment and will not play in the series versus the Astros that runs through Wednesday. The disabled list doesn't appear to be under consideration at this point. Kendrys Morales will handle first base until Hosmer is ready.

Erick Aybar (hamstring) is back in the Angels' lineup Monday.

Aybar missed the last two contests with a minor left hamstring injury. The veteran shortstop sports a .261/.303/.308 batting line with one homer and 21 RBI on the season.

The Rangers are considering using Josh Hamilton (hamstring) in center field when he's activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News notes that the club is "desperate for offense from center field" with Leonys Martin in a 3-for-43 slump. It's unclear whether the Rangers are considering using him regularly or just part-time at the position. Hamilton hasn't played center regularly since 2012 but said that he's "absolutely" ready for the position after playing the last two games of his rehab assignment there. If he does settle into center field full-time, it would obviously be bad news for Martin. It could, however, be good news for Joey Gallo, who might be used as the regular left fielder in that case.

Khris Davis (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Wednesday.

The rehab assignment is expected to last five days, putting Davis in line for activation on July 5 assuming all goes well. The outfielder has been on the shelf for a month with a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Jun 29 - 5:15 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) is making progress and could ramp up his activities this week.

Pedroia went on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain just four days ago, so this is certainly encouraging. There's currently no timetable for his return, but he would seem to have a good shot to return at the start of the second half.
Jun 29 - 5:11 PM

Hanley Ramirez (hand) is hoping to return to the lineup by Thursday.

Tests have confirmed that Ramirez is merely dealing with a bruise on his left hand, but he remains sore and will have to ramp up a swinging progression before being cleared to return to action. Hanley hasn't played since last Wednesday. Alejandro De Aza has been filling in in left field.
Jun 29 - 5:05 PM

Wily Peralta (oblique) threw a bullpen session on Monday.

It's the first time he's been on the bump since he went down with a strained left oblique over a month ago. The right-hander is hoping to be ready for a rehab assignment in two weeks, so he's probably looking at a late July return if all goes well.
