Shane Victorino is expected to be placed on the disabled list after aggravating his back injury.

It's not clear when Victorino re-injured his back or how much time he'll miss, but obviously it's discouraging. He just returned from the disabled list less than two weeks ago and will be placed back on it prior to Friday's game. The newly acquired Yoenis Cespedes will assume the majority of the at-bats in right field.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) has been added to the Braves' lineup on Sunday.

Kemp had been slated to miss a third straight start with a tight hamstring, but he talked his way into the lineup. He's in left field and batting cleanup against Zach Davies and the Brewers.

Miguel Sano (illness) is back in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

Sano had been feeling under the weather. Max Kepler (foot) and Eddie Rosario (illness) are also back in there.

Yunel Escobar (thumb) remained out of the Angels' lineup Sunday.

Escobar is feeling better, but he'll miss a second straight start with a strained left thumb. Kaleb Cowart is at third base.

Jason Heyward (hand) will hit off a tee Sunday.

Heyward took some light swings Saturday and is ready to take the next step. He's working his way back from an abrasion on his right hand and could be activated on Thursday when first eligible.

Kyle Hendricks (hand) played catch Saturday with no issues.

He'll play catch again Sunday. Hendricks had been shut down for the last two weeks with tendinitis in his right hand, but it appears he's making some progress. Obviously, he's at the beginning of his throwing progression, so it still figures to be a couple weeks before he returns even if all goes well.

Nomar Mazara (forearm) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight starts because of a bruised right forearm that came as a result of an Aroldis Chapman hit by pitch. Delino DeShields is in left field and Shin-Soo Choo is in right.

Blake Snell will start for the Rays on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Erasmo Ramirez is headed back to the bullpen. Snell was sent down last month after posting a 4.71 ERA over seven starts, but he's earned another opportunity with a 2.66 ERA and 61/15 K/BB ratio over 44 innings at Triple-A Durham. The left-hander is going to get swings and misses, but we'll see whether the improved control he showed at Durham translates now that he's back in the majors. We're skeptical.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals will recall Randal Grichuk from Triple-A Memphis prior to Sunday's game versus the Pirates.

The corresponding move isn't known yet. Grichuk had an eight-game hitting streak going at Memphis and had homered in six of his last 10 contests. He also sported a 29 percent strikeout rate and 4.8 percent walk rate, so the plate discipline the Cards hoped he'd magically find in the minors didn't happen. Manager Mike Matheny noted Saturday that he didn't think it would be wise to recall Grichuk and not play him, so he should be in the lineup fairly regularly. Who sits is the question, as Tommy Pham has been one of the team's best players over the last seven weeks.

J.C. Ramirez kept the Red Sox to one run over six innings Saturday, leading the Angels to a 6-3 victory.

Ramirez gave up just four hits, one of which was a Mitch Moreland solo home run for the only Sox run against him. He also didn't walk a batter while striking out five. A lot of the shine has worn off the 28-year-old since his surprising start to the season, but he's still 7-5 with a passable 4.38 ERA in 17 appearances. Another tough test is on tap for Thursday, when the Angels travel "across town" to face the Dodgers in an interleague battle.

Josh Harrison doubled, homered and scored two runs in the Pirates' 7-3 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Harrison got busy early, doubling into the left field corner in the first inning and scoring on a Josh Bell single. He drove himself in in the fifth inning, just barely clearing the left field wall for a solo homer, his ninth dinger of the year. The 29-year-old also plated a second run when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the sixth. Harrison doesn't have a permanent home on the diamond, but he's not leaving the lineup any time soon, hitting .294/.374/.463 in 72 games this year.

Jacob deGrom limited the Giants to one run over eight innings, striking out seven, and the Mets came on late to grab a 5-2 win Saturday.

deGrom scattered four hits and a walk but was in danger of not factoring in the decision after Brandon Belt's solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game at 1-1. Fortunately for the right-hander, the Mets answered in the top of the eighth and the bullpen held on, getting him his third straight win. He's allowed one run while going at least eight innings in each of those three wins, improving him to 7-3 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 15 starts overall. The 29-year-old will have a terrific chance to make it four in a row when he takes on the Phillies on Friday.
