Desmond Jennings is back in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Jennings missed the final two games prior to the All-Star break with a bruised left knee, but the Rays were simply being cautious. He's hitting .246/.337/.391 with eight homers, 24 RBI and 12 stolen bases for Tampa this season.

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup for the second straight day Sunday due to neck stiffness/soreness.

Add another injury to the list. Braun has also battled back and wrist injuries this season and has played just six out of the last 14 games. He's been outstanding when healthy, batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs. Braun's name keeps popping up in trade rumors, but his inability to stay on the field could hurt his market.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

He will start on Sunday against the Padres in place of Shelby Miller (finger). Bradley holds a 6.26 ERA over 10 starts at the major league level, but he's put up a 1.99 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 40 2/3 frames at Reno this season. With Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) also on the shelf, Bradley could stick in the rotation for a while if he pitches well. He's worth a look in deeper formats.

Kendrys Morales (finger) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Morales hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sprained right finger, but he took batting practice Sunday without any issues. He's in the designated hitter spot and hitting fifth against Chris Sale and the White Sox.

C.J. Wilson will be shut down indefinitely after feeling soreness in his pitching arm during Saturday's rehab start.

Wilson was initially diagnosed with biceps tendinitis, although more details will be available after he undergoes an MRI. The left-hander got a late start to spring training while working his way back from elbow surgery and has had multiple setbacks with his shoulder since then. He's in the final year of a five-year contract that's paying him $20 million this season.

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.
May 29 - 10:58 AM

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."
