Jordan Zimmermann (biceps) will throw a bullpen session on Friday or Saturday.

Assuming he gets through it with no issues, Zimmermann will avoid the disabled list and be cleared to rejoin the Nationals' rotation next week. The right-hander had to leave his last outing prior to the All-Star break with a strained biceps, but obviously the ailment is considered minor. He's put up a 3.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP this season.

Devin Mesoraco (hip) is out of the Reds' lineup again for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Mesoraco is still on the active roster despite the fact that he hasn't started a game since April 11 due to a lingering hip impingement. Of course, he had a pinch-hit appearance on April 26, so putting him on the DL now might not do them much good. He remains day-to-day.

Mike Napoli (illness) is out of the starting lineup for the Red Sox for the second straight day Tuesday.

Napoli is sick and apparently needs another day to rest. Daniel Nava will make the start at first base while Brock Holt will get another start, this time in right field.

Pablo Sandoval (neck) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Sandoval left Monday's game due to neck soreness after suffering a bit of whiplash, but he's good to go. The 28-year-old is batting .294/.392/.412 with two home runs and 11 RBI across his first 18 games this season.

Phillies activated OF Domonic Brown from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Brown is now recovered from left Achilles tendinitis, but he batted just .189 (10-for-53) with one home run and a .573 OPS over 15 games between High-A Clearwater and Triple-A Lehigh Valley during his minor league rehab assignment. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg hinted at the possibility of him staying in Triple-A on Monday, so this decision doesn't come as a big surprise, but it shows how far he's fallen in the organization's eyes. Jeff Francoeur and Grady Sizemore will continue to see playing time in the Phillies' outfield for now.

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

For the second straight day, the Orioles made the decision to cancel the game after consulting with MLB and state and local officials. No makeup date has been announced. The status for the remainder of the games this week is unclear.

Mets recalled RHP Rafael Montero from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Montero is being called up make a spot start Tuesday against the Marlins, which will enable the other Mets starters to all get an extra day of rest. Dillon Gee is coming off back-to-back solid starts, so it's unlikely that Montero will displace him in the starting rotation even with a strong performance.

Jed Lowrie will fly to Houston on Tuesday to undergo an MRI on his right thumb.

Lowrie hurt the thumb when he slid into home plate in the eighth inning on Monday. It was swollen and sore after the game, but there should more clarity about his status at some point Tuesday. The 31-year-old is off to a strong start at the plate, with a .300/.432/.567 batting line with four home runs and 10 RBI over 18 games.

George Springer went 0-for-2 with three walks, three stolen bases, and two runs scored on Monday as the Astros beat the Padres.

In the eighth inning, Springer walked, moved to second on another walk, stole third, and came around to score on a throwing error by catcher Derek Norris. In the ninth, Springer walked again, stole second, and scored on a Colby Rasmus home run. Springer hasn't done much with the bat, hitting just .183/.302/.324, but he's 7-for-8 in the stolen base department at least.

Justin Morneau went 2-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run to help the Rockies edge the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Morneau greeted D'Backs starter Chase Anderson rudely with a three-run jack in the first inning. It's only the first baseman's second blast of the season. The defending NL batting champ had been off to a cold start, but three consecutive multi-hit games bumped his batting line up to .297/.338/.438.
Apr 28 - 1:23 AM

Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI double, and a solo home run in Monday's win versus the Giants.

Pederson knocked in a run with a double to cap off the Dodgers' four-run third inning. He then homered off of George Kontos in the sixth inning, providing an insurance run. The rookie has lived up to expectations thus far, batting .296/.458/.556 with three home runs and nine RBI.
Apr 28 - 1:10 AM

Carl Crawford had to leave Monday's game against the Giants with tightness in his right side.

More should be known after the game, but obviously if it's an oblique issue he could wind up on the disabled list. With Yasiel Puig (hamstring) already on the shelf, Alex Guerrero and Scott Van Slyke could see time in left field if Crawford is out for a while.
