Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. The Mets also have Asdrubal Cabrera on the bench, as they're going with Michael Conforto, Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce in the outfield, T.J. Rivera at second base and Wilmer Flores at third.

George Springer is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for Springer. Carlos Beltran is also getting a breather, as Evan Gattis, Nori Aoki and Jake Marisnick are all receiving starts.

Ryon Healy (head) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It's the second straight start he's missed after a bad-hop grounder hit him in the head Friday. Healy did pinch-hit Saturday, though, and he probably would be starting if the A's weren't playing in a National League park without the designated hitter. Expect him to be back in there Monday in Toronto.

Astros recalled INF Tyler White from Triple-A Fresno.

White has batted .299/.371/.517 with 19 homers and 69 RBI at Fresno this season. He's played all over the infield this season and could see the occasional start against lefties.
Jul 23 - 10:28 AM

Astros placed 3B Colin Moran on the 10-day disabled list with a facial fracture.

Moran had to be carted off the field Saturday after fouling a ball off his eye. There's no timetable for his return, but it's obviously going to be a while.
Jul 23 - 10:26 AM

J.T. Riddle (shoulder) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

He'll miss a fourth straight start with right shoulder tendinitis. Miguel Rojas will handle shortstop. The Marlins are also giving J.T. Realmuto and Marcell Ozuna days off, as they have A.J. Ellis at catcher and Ichiro Suzuki in left field.

Mets sent RHP Neil Ramirez outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ramirez cleared waivers after being removed from the 40-man roster and will accept an outright assignment. He's struck out well over a batter per inning with a few clubs this season but has also posted a 7.18 ERA.
Jul 23 - 9:16 AM

Astros optioned LHP Reymin Guduan to Triple-A Fresno.

Guduan has allowed seven runs over eight relief innings this season. He'll be back eventually.
Jul 23 - 9:00 AM

Diamondbacks optioned LHP Anthony Banda to Triple-A Reno.

Banda allowed four runs and struck out five over 5 2/3 frames against the Nationals on Saturday in his major league debut. It was a spot start while Taijuan Walker was on paternity leave.
Jul 23 - 8:59 AM

Brewers activated RHP Wily Peralta from the 10-day disabled list.

Peralta missed the last month with a strained calf. He'll be used in middle relief.
Jul 23 - 8:57 AM

Brewers designated RHP Rob Scahill for assignment.

It's the second time in the last month and third time since January that he's been designated for assignment. Scahill can elect free agency if he wants.
Jul 23 - 8:55 AM

Padres activated LHP Buddy Baumann from the 60-day disabled list.

Baumann has been out nearly all season with a back injury. He'll give the Padres some left-handed relief depth.
Jul 23 - 8:43 AM

Yadier Molina (ankle) went 0-for-3 with a hit by pitch in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Molina was a late scratch from Friday's lineup due to right ankle discomfort, but he'll be fine. He had a chance to tie Saturday's game with a base hit with two outs in the top of the ninth inning but struck out to end it.
Jul 23 - 8:41 AM

Nelson Cruz delivered a game-winning single in the 10th inning of Saturday's game against the Yankees.

Cruz hasn't posted an extra-base hit over the past five outings, but he still has six homers and 16 RBI across 17 games in the month of July. The All-Star remains productive, producing a slash line of .288/.364/.593 through 333 at-bats.
Jul 23 - 6:04 AM

Ben Gamel finished 2-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's game against the Yankees.

Gamel pushed his hitting streak to nine games. He is hitting .308 (12-for-39) with five runs scored, two homers and four RBI during the solid run. It's rare, but his average has actually slipped two points since his hitting streak started right after the All-Star break.
