Collin Cowgill OF LAA 5 hours ago

Cowgill (wrist) took batting practice Monday and could be close to heading out on a rehab assignment, Alden Gonzalez of reports.

Cowgill continues to work back slowly from a sprained right wrist, and he's now been out for more than a month. The team still has not issued a timetable, but considering he's close to a rehab stint, a mid-July return to the Angels seems reasonable.

Khris Davis LF MIL 5 hours ago

Davis' (knee) rehab assignment is tentatively scheduled to last five days, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Davis will begin the assignment at Low-A Wisconsin on Wednesday, so this timetable would put him back with the Brewers next Monday. It's important to note that the timetable could change, but it appears the team is anticipating Davis returning before the All-Star break.

Alcides Escobar SS KC 6 hours ago

Escobar (finger) is still feeling pain when he throws, but is still slated to lead off and play shortstop Monday against the Astros, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Despite being 50-50 as to whether or not he plays earlier in the day, he's currently set to still leadoff and play shortstop Monday, despite the lingering pain. It will be interesting to see if he gets time off over the course of the next week, but as of now, he will be playing through the injury.

Lorenzo Cain CF/RF KC 6 hours ago

Cain (hamstring) is starting at designated hitter and batting third, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

With Cain still recovering from his hamstring injury, he returns to the lineup, but as the designated hitter. With Eric Hosmer in line for a few days off, Cain could continue filling in as the designated hitter until his hamstring is fully healed.

C. J. Cron 1B/DH LAA 6 hours ago

Cron will start at first base and bat seventh, Alden Gonzalez of reports.

Cron has been mashing the ball in Triple-A, hitting for a .323/.347/.667 slash line with 18 of his 30 hits going for extra bases and earned a trip back up to the majors. He's been much better against lefties than righties this season in the majors, hitting for .279 against them versus just .154 against right-handers. With southpaw CC Sabathia on the mound for the Yankees, Cron gets the nod over Efren Navarro at first base with Albert Pujols DHing.

Khris Davis LF MIL 6 hours ago

Davis (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Wednesday.

Davis took batting practice last Wednesday, but nothing much about his rehab process has been disclosed to this point. However, it appears it's going well enough for a rehab assignment Wednesday, making a mid-July return entirely plausible.

Hanley Ramirez SS/LF BOS 7 hours ago

Ramirez (hand) will not be going to the disabled list and could return to the lineup by Thursday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

It was certainly a good sign that Ramirez was joining his teammates in Toronto, but avoiding the disabled list is a big step for the converted outfielder. He's hit for a .283/.330/.482 slash line in 251 at-bats with 15 home runs and 38 RBI.

Dustin Pedroia 2B BOS 7 hours ago

Pedroia (hamstring) is progressing well and could ramp up activity this week, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.

With the initial prognosis from manager John Farrell saying that he would miss "at least two weeks," hearing news that he is ramping up his activity this week is certainly a sigh of relief for Red Sox fans. Brock Holt should continue to hold down the second base role as Pedroia recovers.

Wily Peralta SP MIL 7 hours ago

Peralta (oblique) threw his first bullpen session since going on the disabled list Monday, and indicated that it went well, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Peralta hopes to depart on a rehab assignment within the next couple weeks, but that should unfold as he continues to throw bullpen sessions. His timetable hinges on his progress through rehab, but he took a positive first step forward Monday.

Dylan Bundy SP BAL 7 hours ago

Bundy (shoulder) remains shut down indefinitely with tendinitis, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Bundy has been on the shelf since late-May with tendinitis, and though there has been no talk of surgery, this extended layoff is certainly not good news for those hoping he would reach the majors this season. Bundy is still one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, but this prolonged absence is cause for concern.
