Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in Monday's rehab game with High-A Dunedin.

The veteran shortstop has been on the shelf since April 21 due to a strained right hamstring, but is finally making tangible strides toward a return to the Jays. Expect him to be activated from the disabled list later this week.

Josh Donaldson (calf) went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Dunedin on Monday.

He was also hit by a pitch in the contest. The important thing though is that he made it through the game healthy. He's expected to need a couple of games before he's ready to rejoin the Blue Jays later in the week.

David Freese was ejected from Monday's game against the Braves for arguing a called third strike in the fourth inning.

His manager, Clint Hurdle, was also given the gate for arguing the same call. Freese finished the night 0-for-2. Alen Hanson replaced him in the lineup with Josh Harrison shifting over to cover the hot corner.

Clint Hurdle was ejected from Monday's game against the Braves for arguing balls and strikes.

Hurdle took exception to a called third strike on David Freese and vehemently voiced that opinion to the home plate umpire. He'll catch the rest of Monday's action from he clubhouse.

Carlos Carrasco (pectoral) will start Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Carrasco exited his last outing with tightness in his left pectoral area, but he threw his between-starts bullpen session with no issues. "He's in a really good spot," Indians pitching coach Mikey Callaway said. "He feels great. His bullpen was outstanding the other day. We're going to lean on him a lot the rest of the season, so a couple extra days doesn't really hurt if you can get them."

Corey Kluber (back) has officially been cleared to begin a rehab assignment on Thursday at Triple-A Columbus.

Kluber got the go-ahead after completing a bullpen session Monday. He's slated to throw 70-75 pitches for Columbus before rejoining the Indians' rotation next week if all goes well. "We don't want this recurring," pitching coach Mickey Callaway said. "We need our ace out there every day, and we think we went with the right approach." Mike Clevinger has been filling in for Kluber and doing a great job with a 1.56 ERA.

Phillies second base prospect Jesmuel Valentin needs season-ending surgery to repair a separated shoulder.

Valentin suffered the injury last week. The 23-year-old batted a disappointing .229/.282/.292 in his first 104 plate appearances this season for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
May 22 - 7:14 PM

Adonis Garcia (Achilles) did some running without issues on Monday.

The infielder could be ready for activation when first eligible on Friday. Garcia has been out with tendinitis in his Achilles.
May 22 - 7:10 PM

Nate Jones (elbow) appeared in a simulated game Monday.

Jones has been on the shelf for nearly three weeks with right elbow neuritis. It's not clear whether he'll require a rehab assignment before being activated, but it doesn't look like the veteran reliever is far off from a return.
May 22 - 7:09 PM

A.J. Pollock (groin) has begun doing some light jogging.

Pollock is making some nice progress, but he obviously won't be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on Thursday. The outfielder is working his way back from a Grade 1 right groin strain.
May 22 - 7:07 PM

Randall Delgado will start Wednesday versus the White Sox.

He's filling in for Taijuan Walker (blister). All 15 of Delgado's appearances this season have come out of the bullpen, but he's thrown three innings of four occasions, including in his previous outing last Friday. It's unclear whether the D'Backs will need him for more than one start.
May 22 - 7:05 PM

Carlos Rodon (biceps) threw another simulated game at extended spring training Monday.

Rodon threw 60 pitches in 15-pitch intervals, getting up and down four times. It's his fourth since he began ramping up his throwing program after going down with bursitis in his left biceps. Rodon admitted Monday that the rehab process has been "frustrating" for him, but it does appear he's making real progress. As far as what that might mean for a potential rehab assignment, it's not clear at this point.
May 22 - 7:00 PM

Jake Petricka (lat) threw live batting practice at extended spring training Monday.

It's the first time he's faced hitters since he went down with a strained lat in his first appearance of the season. Petricka is starting a throwing program over from scratch, so it will be a while.
May 22 - 6:49 PM

Orioles activated RHP Gabriel Ynoa from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Ynoa is over the hamstring issue that sent him to the DL earlier this month, but he'll try to work his way back up through the minors. The righty has posted a 6.65 ERA at Norfolk this season but threw six shutout innings in a spot start with the O's.
May 22 - 6:44 PM

Cubs designated RHP Jake Buchanan for assignment.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Zac Rosscup. Buchanan, 27, holds an unimpressive 4.75 ERA and 29/19 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 innings at Triple-A Iowa this season.
