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.
May 29 - 2:17 PM

Eric Surkamp will be recalled to start on Tuesday versus the Twins.

Surkamp has posted a 6.55 ERA over five starts for the A's this season, but the club is dealing with a multitude of injuries to the starters so they're forced to give the lefty another shot. Fantasy owners should steer clear.
May 29 - 2:15 PM

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.
May 29 - 2:12 PM

Kurt Suzuki (head) is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

Suzuki left Saturday's game after taking a foul ball to the face mask. He's feeling better Sunday but will sit out as a precaution. Juan Centeno is behind the plate.
May 29 - 2:08 PM

Joe Panik is absent from the Giants' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a day off with the Rockies throwing lefty Chris Rusin. Kelby Tomlinson is filling in at second base.
May 29 - 1:48 PM

Padres recalled RHP Leonel Campos from Triple-A El Paso.

Campos has posted a 19.29 ERA over two appearances in his multiple stints with the big club this season. He'll be used in middle relief.
May 29 - 1:44 PM

Colin Rea is expected to rejoin the Padres' rotation this week.

Rea was sent down last week in order to help manage his workload, as he hasn't made an appearance for Triple-A El Paso. However, he's needed now with Cesar Vargas (elbow) on the shelf. Rea has posted a 4.47 ERA and 36/22 K/BB ratio over 50 1/3 innings this season.
May 29 - 1:43 PM

Padres placed RHP Cesar Vargas on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow soreness.

Vargas was blasted for seven runs over 1 2/3 innings Saturday against the D'Backs, but he was apparently not 100 percent. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Colin Rea will rejoin the rotation this week in his place.
May 29 - 1:40 PM

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.
May 29 - 1:36 PM

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.
May 29 - 1:20 PM

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.

The Tigers are considering using Shane Greene (finger) as a reliever when he returns from the disabled list.

Michael Fulmer has been terrific in his last two starts and seems likely to remain in the rotation at this point, so Greene's best chance to help the team right now could be as a reliever. However, with Mike Pelfrey being Mike Pelfrey, Greene should get a shot to start again at some point even if he is bullpen-bound for a while.
May 29 - 1:02 PM

Welington Castillo is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a simple day off. Chris Herrmann is catching Archie Bradley. Jake Lamb is also sitting out for the D'Backs, as Phil Gosselin is holding down third base.
May 29 - 12:54 PM

Eugenio Suarez is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

He's receiving a day off. Adam Duvall is getting a start at third base in Suarez's place, while Tyler Holt is handling left field. Zack Cozart is sitting out, as well, as Ivan De Jesus Jr. is at shortstop.
