Eric Hosmer could miss the next month of action with a stress fracture in his right hand.

Hosmer was hit in the hand by a pitch over a week ago and never fully recovered, necessitating more tests. Unfortunately, an X-ray revealed the bad news. Hosmer has batted a disappointing .267/.312/.377 this season, but he's heated up this month. The Royals will now likely be forced to play Billy Butler at first base.

Mike Puma of the New York Post confirms that the Mets have reached a deal with Jose Bautista.

It'll presumably be a minor league contract with performance incentives built in. Bautista was released by the Braves on Sunday after batting just .143/.250/.343 in 40 plate appearances and struggling defensively at third base, but the 37-year-old can provide some much-needed immediate corner outfield depth for New York. The deal should be official soon.

Ryan Braun (back) went through a full pregame workout on Monday and will do the same Tuesday.

If everything continues to go smoothly, Braun could be activated from the 10-day disabled list when first eligible on Thursday. He's been out since May 14 with a middle-back injury. The veteran outfielder was batting .222/.268/.413 with five home runs and four stolen bases through 37 games this season.

Jeimer Candelario (wrist) is set to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Toledo.

He's expected to play at least three games on the farm. Candelario landed on the disabled list May 14 due to tendinitis in his left wrist. The 24-year-old third baseman was batting .272/.359/.497 with five home runs and 16 RBI through 37 games this season with Detroit.

Elvis Andrus (elbow) has been cleared to swing a bat.

Andrus is currently on the 60-day disabled list with an olecranon fracture in his right elbow -- an injury he suffered back in mid-April. If all goes smoothly with his rehab activities, he could return to the Rangers' active roster around the middle of June. The 29-year-old shortstop was batting .327/.426/.500 through his first 61 plate appearances this season. Jurickson Profar has been filling in at short for Texas.

Diamondbacks placed OF Steven Souza on the 10-day disabled list with a right pectoral strain.

It's the same injury that cost Souza the first five weeks of the season, and this could very well be another extended absence. Key injuries continue to pile up for the Diamondbacks, who have recalled outfielder Socrates Brito in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
May 22 - 4:19 PM

Rays manager Kevin Cash noted Tuesday that Willy Adames will only be up for 2-3 days.

Adames is simply filling in for Joey Wendle, who was placed on the paternity leave list Tuesday. Adames is a big-time talent and he will start at shortstop and bat fifth Tuesday against the Red Sox, but he's probably not worth serious consideration in standard redraft leagues quite yet.
May 22 - 4:17 PM

Madison Bumgarner (finger) threw a successful simulated game on Tuesday.

As long as he responds well to the workout, the ace left-hander should be cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Sacramento. He's expected to make around three rehab starts before joining the Giants' rotation around the middle of June. Bumgarner has been out all year with a fractured left pinkie.
May 22 - 4:06 PM

Tyler O'Neill is starting in center field and will hit fifth against the Royals on Tuesday.

O'Neill gives Tommy Pham a night off. The 22-year-old rookie has been scorching with the bat since being recalled on Friday, and has three homers over his last three games to go along with a .583 average and six RBI in that time frame.
May 22 - 3:41 PM

Mariners placed 2B Dee Gordon on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a fractured right big toe.

In place of Gordon, the Mariners are calling up Dan Vogelbach. It's just another in a long line of bad luck occurrences for Seattle, as the left-handed hitting lead off hitter had just made a switch to second base after the suspension of Robinson Cano for 80 games for testing positive for a masking agent. Gordon was off to a strong start on the season, hitting .304 with 25 runs scored and an AL-leading 16 steals. We won't see him back with the Mariners until June now, at the earliest, and this toe fracture could sideline him through the All-Star break.
May 22 - 1:56 PM

Gleyber Torres homered twice, totaling three RBI, in the Yankees' 10-5 victory over the Rangers on Monday.

The 21-year-old top infield prospect hit both of his bombs off 44-year-old Rangers starter Bartolo Colon -- a two-run shot in the top of the second inning, and a solo shot in the top of the sixth. Torres was not a huge slugger in the minor leagues, but he already has six home runs in his first 25 major league games, along with 18 RBI and a sweet .321/.389/.571 batting line. The kid is dripping with talent.
May 21 - 11:40 PM

Twins designated RHP Phil Hughes for assignment.

Hughes still has more than $22 million remaining on his contract that runs through the end of next season, which the Twins are still responsible for. They're wisely treating it as a sunk cost and moving on. Hughes holds a 5.99 ERA since the beginning of 2016 and has looked worse than ever this year after coming back from a second thoracic outlet surgery. He'll turn 32 next month and will undoubtedly have to settle for a minor league contract wherever he winds up.
