Eric Hosmer (hand) could be sidelined for up to six weeks.

The initial timetable floated was four weeks, but apparently Hosmer could be on the shelf even longer than that. The first baseman is dealing with a stress fracture in his right hand, an ailment that he originally suffered over a week ago but played with after initial X-rays didn't find anything. The Royals will go with a combination of Billy Butler and Raul Ibanez at first base while Hosmer is sidelined.

Chris Archer kept rolling along Sunday, yielding just two hits and one walk while striking out seven across seven shutout frames in a 5-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Archer allowed two of the first four hitters he faced to reach base and then just one got on the rest of the way. The young right-hander is on some kind of streak, as he hasn't allowed an earned run in his last four outings after a so-so Opening Day start. He already has three starts this season where he's given up two hits or fewer and no runs across seven innings. Archer will take on the Orioles in Baltimore next weekend.

Jason Heyward is considered day-to-day with a left groin injury.

Heyward suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Brewers while chasing down a ball in the outfield. He tested things out with some jogging and looked OK, but the Cardinals decided to be cautious here. Consider the outfielder day-to-day.

Gio Gonzalez gave up six earned runs in five innings Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Marlins.

Gonzalez struck out eight and walked just one, but Miami's offense pounded him for 10 hits -- including three triples. Gio now has a rough 1-2 record, 5.01 ERA, and 1.71 WHIP in 23 1/3 innings this season and the Nationals have lost five straight games. Gonzalez will try to get on the right track next weekend against the Phillies.

Dodgers placed OF Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a left hamstring strain.

Puig initially injured the hamstring nearly two weeks ago and just hasn't been able to get over the hump. The Dodgers think he could be ready in 4-5 days, but they've decided to finally play it safe and go ahead and make the DL move. Puig should be ready to go when his 15 days are up. Andre Ethier will see the lion's share of at-bats in right field while Puig is on the shelf.

Sunday's game between the Giants and Rockies has been postponed due to rain.

No makeup date has been announced yet. Scheduled starters Tim Lincecum and Tyler Matzek will presumably be pushed back a day.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday.

It's the first time he's thrown off the bump since his left shoulder soreness cropped up in mid-March. The Dodgers have understandably proceeded cautiously with the southpaw, but Ryu has progressed well in recent weeks. He's still a long ways away from a return, however.

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed in an interview on KMOX 1120 AM on Sunday that Adam Wainwright (Achilles) is likely done for the season.

"I would imagine that with this injury he will not pitch again this season, but we want to wait for the reports Monday," the GM said. It's confirmation of an earlier report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal as well as what others had speculated. Losing Wainwright is obviously a major hit to the Cards as they seek their third straight division title and fifth straight playoff appearance.

Greg Holland (pectoral) will play catch on Sunday.

It will be the first time he's thrown since being diagnosed with a Grade 1 right pectoral strain. Holland is eligible to be activated from the disabled list in a week, though it's possible he'll need a little more time than that. Wade Davis will continue to serve as the Royals' closer in the meantime.

Max Scherzer (thumb) did not throw a scheduled bullpen session on Sunday.

That's after the 'pen session was pushed back a day from Saturday. Scherzer, who threw off flat ground Sunday instead, is in jeopardy of missing his next scheduled start on Tuesday due to a sore right thumb, although the righty said the thumb is improving and he's not ruling himself out yet. "I can't say that," Scherzer said when asked if he'll start Tuesday. "Because I'm literally day-to-day." Tanner Roark would be the obvious candidate for a spot start in Scherzer's place.
Apr 26 - 11:20 AM

Yadier Molina (knee) remained out of the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

Molina took a foul tip off his right knee during Friday's game and remains sore. He's considered day-to-day. Tony Cruz is getting another start behind the plate Sunday, while Cody Stanley has been recalled to provide depth. The Cards are also giving Matt Holliday and Jon Jay a rest Sunday, with Mark Reynolds handling left field and Peter Bourjos center.
Apr 26 - 11:10 AM

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping to return to the lineup during the series versus the Red Sox early this week.

Bautista hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sore right shoulder, although he reported continued improvement on Sunday. The club will ease the outfielder back into things in the designated hitter spot initially before eventually returning him to the field. Michael Saunders is in right field Sunday.
