CC Sabathia will undergo season-ending surgery on his right knee on July 23.

The good news is that it's a debridgement procedure rather than a microfracture one, which would have put the left-hander's career in jeopardy. It's possible microfracture surgery will eventually be needed if the cleanup doesn't work, but obviously that's a last resort. Sabathia should be ready to go for spring training.

Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight games and eight out of the last 14 contests with a variety of ailments. His back has been the most recent reason for his absence, so that's presumably why he's sitting again Sunday. Braun has been a beast this season when healthy, hitting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs, but he's had some trouble staying on the field.

Salvador Perez (quad) is expected to be sidelined for the next 7-10 days.

An MRI on Perez's right quad and knee didn't reveal any structural damage, but he has a bad bruise and is surely very sore after Saturday's collision with Cheslor Cuthbert. The Royals have recalled Tony Cruz and he will share the catching duties with Drew Butera while Perez is on the shelf.

Mark Teixeira (neck) will take batting practice Sunday.

If it goes well, he could be back in the lineup Monday. Teixeira hasn't played since Tuesday due to neck injury that's bothered him throughout May.

Michael Brantley (shoulder) admitted Saturday that it's "going to take a little bit of time" before he returns.

Indians manager Terry Francona added that the club is taking a more "conservative" approach with Brantley now after it appears they brought him back from the disabled list too soon late last month. "We didn't put a timetable (on Brantley's return) because there isn't one," said Francona. "It's how he feels." Brantley took dry swings and hit off a tee Friday, but he hasn't been cleared to swing a bat in consecutive days yet.

Matt Adams (back) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Adams didn't start the last two games due to a back issue, although he delivered a pinch-hit, two-run double Saturday. He's batting .393/.443/.696 with four homers and 17 RBI this month.

Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that Tim Lincecum is expected to make his debut with the Angels on June 12.

Lincecum threw approximately 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Saturday and his next appearance will be with Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. He'll make one additional start for Salt Lake on June 7 before joining the Halos' rotation. "Everything felt pretty good," Lincecum said of his appearance in extended spring. "What I asked for and what the Angels are giving me is just time to move along at my own pace and figure out things that I need to."
May 29 - 10:40 AM

Carlos Beltran (back) is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

Beltran had to depart Saturday's game with a minor back injury, but he's available off the bench so there would seem to be a good chance he's back in the lineup Monday. Aaron Hicks is in right field for the Yanks. The club also had Ronald Torreyes at third base in place of Chase Headley.

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Saturday that he would like to ease Brad Boxberger (abdomen) back into the closer role.

Boxberger will be activated from the disabled list on Monday, but it sounds like Alex Colome could stick in the ninth inning for a few more days. "(Boxberger) is going to get plenty of opportunities in the ninth inning," Cash said. "I don't know if it's the right thing to do to stick him in a 2-1 ball game the first time he comes out. If we can work him into some outings a little bit lower leverage, that would be ideal."

Paul Goldschmidt got on base four times in Saturday’s 8-7 win over the Padres, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks.

It was only Goldschmidt’s ninth home run of the year, which somehow seems relatively small, but he has already driven in 30 runs. He also swiped his sixth bag of the year for good measure. The All-Star first baseman is now hitting .250/.413/.453 and remains one of the elite fantasy players in any mixed format.

Dallas Keuchel recovered from a shaky start to limit the Angels to two runs over seven innings in Saturday's 4-2 win.

Keuchel gave up back-to-back solo homers to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols in the first inning but settled down to put up six zeroes in his final six innings of work. The southpaw gave up just one other hit, didn't walk a batter and struck out five on the night. It ranked among his best starts of the season, improving him to 3-6 with a 5.58 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 11 outings. We'll see if Keuchel can use the start as a springboard or if it was an aberration when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Yu Darvish (elbow) struck out seven over five innings of one-run ball in the Rangers' 5-2 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

Making his season debut, the right-hander looked like he hadn't missed a beat, giving up just three hits and a walk while throwing 81 pitches in the start. The start was his first since August 9, 2014, after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Initial results were promising, but few Tommy John patients come back without any bumps along the way, and there will surely be some for the 29-year-old as well. His comeback will continue Friday against the Mariners.
