Justin Verlander (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday in Detroit.

Verlander exited Monday's start in Pittsburgh with right shoulder soreness. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit nervous," Verlander said. "I've never been through this before." The Tigers seem likely to put Verlander on the disabled list even if the MRI doesn't reveal anything serious. He's never been on the DL during his 10-year career.

X-rays on Brandon Nimmo's right hand came back negative.

Nimmo had to exit Sunday's game after being plunked by three pitches (although only two of them officially counted), but he managed to escape with merely a bruised right pinkie. Consider him day-to-day.

Garrett Richards (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Monday.

If that goes well, he'll throw off a mound again Wednesday and then hopefully make a rehab start next weekend. If Richards can progress without any setbacks, he should be in line to rejoin the Angels' rotation sometime next week.

Tyler Skaggs (hamstring) has officially been cleared to start Monday against the Royals.

Skaggs had to be scratched from his last outing with a tight right hamstring, but he threw a bullpen session Saturday without issue and is now ready to go. There's a bit of risk of re-injury with a hamstring, but a favorable matchup against the Royals makes Skaggs a must-start.

Tommy Pham is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Sunday due to the flu.

Pham has evidently been under the weather for a few days, which could at least partly explain four straight hitless contests that included a golden sombrero Saturday. Harrison Bader will cover center field.

Lorenzo Cain (groin) is not in the Brewers' lineup SUnday.

Cain has been banged up lately, exiting Thursday's game with a hamstring injury and Saturday's game with groin tightness. He's considered day-to-day for now. Christian Yelich will play center field and Hernan Perez is getting a start in right.
Jun 24 - 12:00 PM

Chris Taylor (hamstring) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's now missed three straight starts with a tight left hamstring. Taylor did come off the bench to deliver a two-run double Saturday, so odds are he won't miss many (if any) more starts. Enrique Hernandez is at shortstop for the third day in a row.
Jun 24 - 11:33 AM

Joey Gallo (hamstring) is in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Gallo departed Saturday's game with a tight left hamstring, but it's evidently an issue he's been managing all season and it won't cost him a start. He's in the designated hitter spot and batting sixth against Jose Berrios and the Twins.
Jun 24 - 11:21 AM

Ryan Braun (finger) is back in the brewers' lineup Sunday.

Braun didn't start the previous five games after undergoing cryotherapy on his right thumb, although he did come off the bench Saturday. He's in left field and batting third versus Luke Weaver and the Cardinals.

Noah Syndergaard (finger) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Sunday.

Everything went well. Syndergaard will throw another bullpen session Tuesday before then throwing a live batting practice session Friday. "Thor" has missed a month of action with a finger injury and presumably will require multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Mets' rotation.
Jun 24 - 11:12 AM

Xander Bogaerts (finger) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Bogaerts sat out Saturday after spraining his left index finger on a slide Friday, but he's fine. He is at shortstop and batting fifth against Marco Gonzales and the Mariners.
Jun 24 - 11:09 AM

Yu Darvish (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A South Bend on Monday.

Darvish has missed over a month of action with a triceps issue, so he figures to require multiple rehab outings before rejoining the Cubs' rotation. He's posted a disappointing 4.95 ERA so far in his first year in Chicago.
