Jose Reyes SS TOR 2 hours ago
Reyes (ribs) is hopeful to be available for Tuesday's series opener against the Orioles, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.
Reyes will likely be reevaluated Monday after missing the weekend slate of games, and a final call on a potential DL stint will probably be made at that point. If he's able to avoid the disabled list, Reyes will only bat from the right side in an attempt to curb any further discomfort. If this plan doesn't come to fruition, look for Steve Tolleson and Ryan Goins to see a short-term bump in playing time while Reyes is on the shelf.
Billy Hamilton CF CIN 2 hours ago
Hamilton (groin) will not be in the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Hamilton exited Saturday's game with right groin soreness and will receive the night off to aid his recovery. After Hamilton suffered the injury, the Reds indicated that the speedster wasn't in line for a trip to the DL, though the organization's tune could change if he's slow to progress by mid-week.
Marlon Byrd LF/RF CIN 2 hours ago
Byrd is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Byrd will be replaced by Skip Schumaker after going 1-for-8 with three strikeouts over the first two games of the series, dropping his season line to a pathetic .143/.143/.167. Schumaker doesn't represent a viable everyday alternative to Byrd, but Brennan Boesch, who has shown a little more pop in his bat over his career, could push for further at-bats if Byrd fails to break out of his slump sooner or later.
Brandon Crawford SS SF 2 hours ago
Crawford clubbed his third homer of the season Saturday.
Despite hitting just .163, Crawford has shown increased power early in the year. He set a career-high in homers with 10 last season, but he is currently on pace to best that total in 2015.
Omar Infante 2B KC 2 hours ago
Infante left Sunday's game after appearing to injure himself while running the bases, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.
Infante was replaced in the game by Orlando Calixte, who will be making his MLB debut. With Alcides Escobar currently dealing with a knee injury, both Calixte and Christian Colon could see much more use than normal in the upcoming week's slate of games.
Ben Zobrist 2B/SS/LF/RF OAK 2 hours ago
Zobrist came out of Sunday's game in the bottom of the fifth inning with an undisclosed injury.
Zobrist struggled with a heel injury earlier this week, but it is not clear if that is the reason for his departure on Sunday. He had singled in a run in the top of the fifth, but left while in the field in the bottom half.
Joe Panik 2B SF 2 hours ago
Panik went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.
Panik has returned to the two-spot in the Giants' lineup, and he now has three-consecutive multi-hit games. He has bumped his average back up to .286 on the year, but he has still yet to hit a home run or steal a base.
Travis d'Arnaud C NYM 2 hours ago
D'Arnaud suffered a fractured right hand when he was hit by A.J. Ramos pitch in the seventh inning Sunday, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports.
The Mets also lost Jerry Blevins to a fractured left forearm in the game, which occurred in the top of the inning d'Arnaud was injured. Kevin Plawecki is likely to get promoted and start daily at catcher for the Mets. D'Arnaud could miss 4-to-6 weeks with the injury and then the question will be if he has full strength in the hand when he returns.
John Axford RP COL 2 hours ago
Axford (personal) was transferred to the restricted list by the Rockies on Sunday, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.
Axford was placed on the family medical emergency list last week, but after his eligibilty expired, the Rockies needed to make a different procedural move while he remains away from the team. The reliever has spent the last few weeks checking in on his two-year-old son, Jameson, who was bitten in the foot by a rattlesnake during spring training. He's able to return to the Rockies at any time, though the team hasn't provided an indication on when that might occur.
Jordy Mercer SS PIT 2 hours ago
Mercer was removed from Sunday's game against the Brewers after taking a pitch off the rib cage during a sixth-inning at-bat, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Mercer collapsed to the ground after taking the ball to his chest, but was able to walk off the field under his own power after being examined by the trainer. It's not clear at this time if he suffered anything more serious than a contusion, but the Pirates should provide more clarification on the extent of his injury. Jung-Ho Kang substituted into the game to pinch-run for Mercer and would presumably be in line for the bulk of the starts at shortstop if Mercer should miss further action.
