Bryce Harper (thumb) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday.

Harper will play seven innings in right field for Double-A Harrisburg Thursday, nine innings in center field Saturday, take off Saturday and then play in left field Sunday. If all goes well -- and it has to this point -- he could be in the lineup versus the Rockies Monday. Harper has been on the shelf since late April with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.

Carlos Martinez (lat) played long-toss on Monday.

Martinez said he was pain-free during the session. It's the first time he's done any throwing since he landed on the disabled list a week and a half ago with a right lat strain. When Martinez will resume throwing off a mound isn't known yet, but Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said last Friday that the righty was likely at least 1-2 weeks away from a return.

Zach Davies (shoulder) is expected to rejoin the Brewers' rotation Thursday versus the Mets.

Davies had a setback with his shoulder earlier this month, but he bounced back quickly and struck out nine over 4 2/3 scoreless innings in a rehab start with Low-A Wisconsin on Saturday. The right-hander holds a 4.24 ERA and 25/12 K/BB ratio over 34 innings across six starts this season.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will play in two more rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday and Wednesday before being re-evaluated.

It's possible he'll be activated after that for the beginning of the Red Sox' six-game homestand on Friday. Pedroia has just one hit in eight at-bats in his first three rehab games for the PawSox but has drawn a couple walks. The important thing, of course, is how his surgically-repaired left knee feels, and all indications are that he feels good.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Monday that Ryan Zimmerman (oblique) might be ready "fairly soon."

Zimmerman will need a short rehab assignment first, but it sounds like that might be imminent. The veteran first baseman has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a strained right oblique. Zimmerman's fill-in, Matt Adams, has really cooled off of late after a hot start.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is making progress but is still a few weeks away from a return.

Beltre has been on the disabled list twice this season with left hamstring issues, with the latest setback coming a week ago. The veteran third baseman has been a quick healer during his career, but given that he's 39 and has had an injury and then aggravation, it's not a surprise that he'll be out a while longer.
May 21 - 4:43 PM

Jerad Eickhoff (lat) felt a twinge in the tips of his right middle and index fingers when throwing curveballs during his latest rehab start.

Eickhoff has been out all season with a strained lat but now has a new ailment to deal with. He's being re-evaluated before the Phillies determine what his next step is. With Eickhoff likely out for a while longer, it gives Zach Eflin and Vince Velasquez more leash in the rotation.

Brewers optioned RHP Freddy Peralta to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He'll head back down to the minors with Chase Anderson (illness) ready to return. What a difference a week makes. Peralta had an amazing major league debut against the Rockies on May 13, but he walked six batters while allowing four runs over four innings Saturday against the Twins. The 21-year-old has never been a great control pitcher in the minors, so it's not a bad thing for him to go back down for some more seasoning.
May 21 - 3:38 PM

Brewers activated RHP Chase Anderson from the 10-day disabled list.

Anderson landed on the disabled list last weekend after coming down with a nasty case of food poisoning, but he's doing better now and will make his return Monday against the Diamondbacks. He returns to a 3.97 ERA and 30/16 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings.
May 21 - 3:35 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Monday that Khris Davis (groin) will likely be placed on the disabled list.

Davis left Sunday's game with a right groin strain. He was scheduled to be reevaluated Monday, but Melvin said that he "can't imagine" he won't end up on the disabled list based on how he was moving around. It's not exactly unexpected given how these injuries usually go. Mark Canha and Chad Pinder figure to see an uptick in playing time while Davis is sidelined, but the A's and fantasy owners are going to miss his big bat.
May 21 - 2:53 PM

Juan Soto will start in left field and bat sixth Monday against the Padres.

Soto struck out in his first major league at-bat Sunday, but this will his first MLB start. The Nationals are dealing with multiple injuries in their outfield, so they made the bold move of promoting the 19-year-old despite appearing in just eight games above High-A. They think he's equal to the task. It should be interesting, at the very least, but Soto is worth a pickup in most fantasy leagues on upside alone.
May 21 - 2:33 PM

Major League Baseball has extended the administrative leave for Roberto Osuna for another week through May 28.

It's the second extension for administrative leave since Osuna's arrest for assault on May 8. He still has a court date scheduled for June 18, so it's unclear when he might pitch for the Blue Jays again. He could face a possible suspension from MLB even if he isn't ultimately convicted. Tyler Clippard has the lone save for Toronto since Osuna's arrest.
