A's manager Bob Melvin strongly hinted Thursday that Andy Parrino is being called up to the majors.

Jed Lowrie is headed to the disabled list with a hairline fracture in his right index finger and Parrino is in line to take over as Oakland's primary shortstop. The 28-year-old Parrino has posted a cool .286/.363/.404 batting line with seven home runs and 52 RBI in 90 games this season for Triple-A Sacramento and could carry value down the stretch in mixed fantasy formats given the scarcity of productive shortstops.

Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw a bullpen session Sunday.

Zimmermann said he felt great during the session. He'll throw another bullpen session on Tuesday and if that goes well should be cleared to rejoin the Tigers' rotation later this week.

Huston Street (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Street made it through an appearance in extended spring training on Saturday with no issues. He could skip a rehab assignment and join the Angels on Monday, although the club hasn't ruled out having him pitch in a minor league game. Joe Smith will return to a setup role when Street is ready.

Giancarlo Stanton (side) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

Stanton hasn't played since Tuesday because of soreness in his right side. He's done some hitting in recent days, so it does appear some progress is being made. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field again in Stanton's place.
May 29 - 1:38 PM

Christian Yelich (back) is back in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It will be his first start in over a week, as he's been battling back spasms. Yelich is in left field and hitting third against Julio Teheran and the Braves.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Padres "are fielding calls from a lot of teams" on James Shields but "nothing appears imminent" regarding a trade.

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Saturday that the Padres were discussing a Shields trade with the White Sox and there was "significant momentum" in getting something done. While Heyman appears to be pumping the brakes a bit, it does look like something is cooking with the veteran right-hander. Shields has posted a 3.06 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 56/23 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings this season. He's in the second season of a four-year, $75 million contract and the Padres would likely have to eat some of that money in order to move him.

Carlos Correa is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

Correa has just four hits over his last 37 at-bats, so he'll get a day off to regroup. Marwin Gonzalez is at shortstop Sunday. The Astros also have Evan Gattis at catcher in place of Jason Castro.
May 29 - 1:14 PM

David Ortiz (foot) was a late scratch from the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Ortiz is a little sore after being hit on the left foot by a pitch Saturday. Consider him day-to-day. Hanley Ramirez will now serve as the designated hitter, with Travis Shaw handling first base and Josh Rutledge entering the lineup at third.
May 29 - 12:46 PM

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup for the second straight day Sunday due to neck stiffness/soreness.

Add another injury to the list. Braun has also battled back and wrist injuries this season and has played just six out of the last 14 games. He's been outstanding when healthy, batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs. Braun's name keeps popping up in trade rumors, but his inability to stay on the field could hurt his market.
May 29 - 12:35 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

He will start on Sunday against the Padres in place of Shelby Miller (finger). Bradley holds a 6.26 ERA over 10 starts at the major league level, but he's put up a 1.99 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 40 2/3 frames at Reno this season. With Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) also on the shelf, Bradley could stick in the rotation for a while if he pitches well. He's worth a look in deeper formats.
May 29 - 12:19 PM

Kendrys Morales (finger) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Morales hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sprained right finger, but he took batting practice Sunday without any issues. He's in the designated hitter spot and hitting fifth against Chris Sale and the White Sox.
May 29 - 12:04 PM

C.J. Wilson will be shut down indefinitely after feeling soreness in his pitching arm during a bullpen session Saturday.

Wilson was initially diagnosed with biceps tendinitis, although more details will be available after he undergoes an MRI. He admitted to feeling fatigue toward the end of his rehab start Wednesday and then said he felt "awful" Saturday. The left-hander got a late start to spring training while working his way back from elbow surgery and has had multiple setbacks with his shoulder since then. He's in the final year of a five-year contract that's paying him $20 million this season.
