Michael Pineda (back) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment on Sunday after throwing a successful simulated game Tuesday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi described Pineda during the simulated game as "really good." It's not clear where he'll be assigned for his rehab assignment, but he'll throw 60-65 pitches and/or four innings in his first rehab start. Pineda is tracking towards a mid-August return if all goes well.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that he thinks Hunter Pence (wrist) could return before the All-Star break.

Pence took batting practice on Sunday and the club was very happy with how it went. He'll be examined by a doctor on Monday before the next step is determined. Pence has missed nearly a month of action with tendinitis in his left wrist but has evidently made rapid progress in recent days.

Ricky Nolasco will undergo surgery on his right ankle on Monday.

Nolasco first hurt his ankle back in late May and attempts to rehab it proved unsuccessful. There's no timetable for his return, but you'd have to think there's a good chance his season is over. If that's the case, Nolasco will have posted a 5.40 ERA over just 34 starts in his first two seasons with the Twins after signing a four-year, $49 million contract.

Monday's game between the Rays and Royals was postponed due to rain.

They'll play a split doubleheader on Tuesday. Edinson Volquez, who had been scheduled for Monday, will be pushed back a day to start during the double-dip. Alex Colome will be skipped by the Rays.
Jul 6 - 7:22 PM

Adrian Gonzalez (hand) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

Gonzalez had to exit Sunday's game after being hit on the right hand by a pitch, but he escaped with merely a bruise. The first baseman sports a .291/.366/.518 batting line with 15 homers and 50 RBI this season.
Jul 6 - 6:19 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Ellsbury missed a few games during his rehab assignment last week due to fatigue in his legs, but he went through simulated game activities on Monday and the Yankees were apparently happy with what they saw. The outfielder has been on the shelf since mid-May with a right knee sprain.
Jul 6 - 6:14 PM

Khris Davis (knee) is slated to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Davis is ready to return now, but he played in five rehab games in five days through Sunday so the Brewers wanted to give him a day of rest before activating him. The outfielder missed five and a half weeks of action with a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Jul 6 - 5:51 PM

Lorenzo Cain will be sidelined for a few days after aggravating his left hamstring injury on Sunday.

It's an ailment Cain has been trying to play through for a couple weeks now. Royals manager Ned Yost expects the outfielder to be fine for next week's All-Star game, but it sounds like he could be sidelined for most of this week's action. Jarrod Dyson is handling center field Monday.
Jul 6 - 5:22 PM

Yordano Ventura (hand) has officially been cleared to start on Thursday against the Rays after a successful bullpen session Monday.

Ventura had been slated for another rehab start, but the Royals changed their mind after he felt good in a 'pen session over the weekend. Given the nice matchup, fantasy owners can probably go ahead and roll with the righty this week. Joe Blanton will head back to the bullpen following Ventura's return.
Jul 6 - 5:14 PM

Royals designated RHP Jason Frasor for assignment.

Well, this one is a surprise. Frasor has been lucky to post a 1.54 ERA this season considering his 4.03 FIP and 18/15 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings, but he's been a mostly reliable reliever since arriving in Kansas City last July. He's making just $1.25 million this season and has a $2 million mutual option for 2016. The Royals seem likely to be able to find someone wanting to trade for Frasor.
Jul 6 - 5:00 PM

Mariners activated RHP Hisashi Iwakuma from the 15-day disabled list.

The right-hander has been sidelined since late April due to a strained lat muscle. He also had a blister issue in his last rehab start, but manager Lloyd McClendon said that Iwakuma will not be under a strict pitch count Monday when he takes on the Tigers. Fantasy owners can probably feel free to go ahead and ride with him.
Jul 6 - 4:54 PM

Starling Marte (oblique) is not in the Pirates' lineup Monday.

The Pirates are calling him day-to-day for now even though it's almost surely a strained oblique Marte is dealing with (the club has only said he has discomfort in his left side). It appears he'll avoid the disabled list for now, but fantasy owners would be wise not to count on him for a few days. Sean Rodriguez is in left field Monday.
