Adam Warren (shoulder) has been playing catch.

Warren's recovery from right shoulder inflammation has come slower than expected. He's hoping to return at some point during the Yankees' next homestand, which begins in a week.

Ehire Adrianza (abdomen) could begin a rehab assignment in the next few days.

Adrianza was placed on the disabled list last week with an abdominal strain, but he received encouraging news from tests. He's eligible to return on Sunday and it sounds like he could be ready then.
Jun 26 - 5:07 PM

Glen Perkins (shoulder, biceps) could resume throwing as soon as Tuesday.

Perkins received a cortisone shot after developing some biceps tendinitis. His timetable obviously remains up in the air.
Jun 26 - 5:05 PM

Phil Hughes (biceps) will be activated and used as a reliever later this week.

Hughes will make a final rehab appearance with Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday before being activated. He's still sitting in the 89-92 mph range out of the bullpen, which isn't what he or the Twins had hoped. Hughes, who is in the third year of a five-year, $58 million contract, figures to be used in long relief initially.

Jason Heyward took some light swings Monday, but the cut on his right hand still felt tender.

Heyward progressed to hitting off a tee Sunday, but it sounds like the Cubs are backing him off a little bit. He's eligible to return Thursday and it doesn't appear he'll be ready by then.
Jun 26 - 4:59 PM

Austin Jackson (quad) is getting an MRI on Monday.

He could need a stint on the disabled list, depending on what the scan shows. If a move is made with Jackson, it will come prior to Tuesday's game.
Jun 26 - 4:57 PM

David Price (fingernail) threw a flat ground session on Monday.

Price dealt with a cracked fingernail during his last outing, but he'll be fine for his next start. He's slated to face the Twins on Thursday.
Jun 26 - 4:47 PM

Carson Smith (elbow, shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.

Smith is working his way back from Tommy John surgery but had to be shut down recently because of a sore shoulder. He should be ready for a rehab assignment before long if he can avoid another setback, but he'll need a bunch of rehab appearances.
Jun 26 - 4:45 PM

Pablo Sandoval (ear) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday.

Sandoval has missed the last week of action with an inner ear infection. He will share starts with Jhonny Peralta at the hot corner for Pawtucket.
Jun 26 - 4:43 PM

Hanley Ramirez is day-to-day with a sore left knee.

Ramirez was hit by a pitch Sunday and that's the reason he was scratched from Monday's lineup. He should be back in there in a day or two.
Jun 26 - 4:42 PM

Nationals signed RHP Francisco Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports first reported the Nats' pursuit of K-Rod earlier Monday and now says that the deal has been finalized. The former closer will go to the minors league for now but should be added to the big league bullpen. Rodriguez was released by the Tigers last week after posting an ugly 7.82 ERA over 28 appearances, but Washington is willing to give him a shot given their bullpen issues.
Jun 26 - 4:33 PM

Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Monday.

There's no word yet on the reason for the scratch, but Ramirez has had ongoing shoulder issues. Chris Young has replaced him in the lineup.
Jun 26 - 4:15 PM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Jayson Werth (foot) took a few swings Sunday.

Werth was unable to put all of his weight on his injured left foot just a couple of days ago, but he's slowly making progress. The veteran outfielder could soon travel to West Palm Beach to ramp up baseball activities. Baker is hopeful that Werth will be back after the All-Star break.
Jun 26 - 4:07 PM

Henry Owens has been demoted from Triple-A Pawtucket to Double-A Portland.

Ouch. Owens has posted a decent 3.91 ERA over 14 starts in Triple-A this year, but he has walked 60 batters in just 69 innings. That's obviously not going to work. The 24-year-old will try to improve against lesser competition and will work on lowering his arm slot.
Jun 26 - 3:58 PM

Addison Russell (shoulder) is not in Monday's lineup.

Russell exited Sunday's game with right shoulder discomfort, but it's unclear how much time he'll need to miss. Javy Baez will make the start at shortstop.
