Nick Hundley C COL 40 minutes ago
Hundley is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Hundley will receive a regular day off after starting four straight behind the plate. Michael McKenry will man the backstop in his stead.
Juan Nicasio P LAD 43 minutes ago
Nicasio is a likely candidate to fill in for Carlos Frias (back) on Monday against the Phillies, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.
Nicasio already has one start under his belt this season, and owns a formidable 2.18 ERA over 33 innings. With Frias landing on the disabled list, he'll potentially serve as a short-term solution, but would likely return to long relief afterwards.
Nolan Arenado 3B COL 48 minutes ago
Arenado is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Arenado hasn't had a day off since May 21, so this was long overdue for the 24-year-old, who recently had a 17-game hit streak snapped. Daniel Descalso will relieve him at third base for the afternoon contest.
Tim Cooney SP STL 52 minutes ago
Cooney will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start one half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.
Cooney turned in a quality start Thursday for the Cardinals, but came away with a no-decision after six innings of two-run ball. The left-hander was then demoted following the contest to make room on the roster for Tommy Pham. Cooney, along with fellow southpaw Tyler Lyons, will get the call for Tuesday's doubleheader in Chicago. An extra spot was opened up after Jaime Garcia (groin) was placed on the disabled list Sunday afternoon.
Tyler Lyons SP STL 57 minutes ago
Lyons will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start on half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.
Lyons and Triple-A teammate Tim Cooney will get the starting nods after Jaime Garcia (groin) was placed on the 15-day DL Sunday. The left-handed Lyons has logged a victory the last two times he's taken the mound for the Cardinals, but the bigger picture hasn't been as positive, as he's allowed 15 runs (13 earned) on 28 hits over 23 innings.
Mark Trumbo 1B/LF/RF/DH SEA 1 hour ago
Trumbo is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.
Trumbo's stay with the Mariners has been nothing short of brutal, and it could soon start costing him regular at-bats. In 23 games with Seattle, Trumbo has recorded 12 hits in 82 at-bats (.146 average), with only one home run and five RBI. Seth Smith will cover right field in Trumbo's place Sunday.
Austin Jackson CF SEA 1 hour ago
Jackson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.
Jackson will get a breather after going 2-for-16 at the plate over his previous four games. In Jackson's place, manager Lloyd McClendon will insert James Jones in center field and at the top of a lefty-heavy lineup to face Oakland right-hander Chris Bassitt.
Daniel Coulombe RP LAD 1 hour ago
Coulombe was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.
Coulombe will give the Dodgers an extra arm in relief, taking the roster spot of Carlos Frias (back) who was placed on the DL in a corresponding move. The lefty reliever hasn't been particularly effective during four prior appearances in the majors this season, giving up six earned runs over 6.1 innings. His time with the Dodgers will likely be short-lived once again.
Carlos Frias P LAD 1 hour ago
Frias (back) was placed on the 15-day DL Sunday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.
Frias was originally scheduled to start Monday against the Phillies, but the team will now have to turn to a backup plan. Even though an MRI on his lower back came back negative, his status for that start had rightfully been up in the air. No official replacement has been announced yet, but long relief man Juan Nicasio could be one option.
Jaime Garcia SP STL 1 hour ago
Garcia (shoulder) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.
Garcia's placement on the DL comes as a bit of a surprise, as earlier in the week it was reported that he would be OK to make his regularly scheduled start Tuesday. Perhaps something went wrong in his side session, as he'll instead be subject to his third change of plans this week. St. Louis has a doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday, and according to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, the team will start Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney, both of whom will need to be recalled from Triple-A Memphis prior to the game.
