  • Sean Bouchard RF | COL

    Rockies' Sean Bouchard: Starting rehab assignment

    Bouchard (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Bouchard is less than two weeks removed from suffering a right ankle sprain but is ready to test things out in a game setting. He is eligible for activation at any time, but the Rockies could keep him at Albuquerque rather than retuning him to the major-league roster.

  • Carson Kelly C | DET

    Tigers' Carson Kelly: Getting rest Monday

    Kelly is out of the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta.

    Kelly will get a breather after he started behind the plate both of the past two days. Jake Rogers will step in as the Tigers' starting catcher Monday.

  • Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Might not need rehab assignment

    Rodgers (hamstring) went through a full workout Monday at Coors Field and the Rockies are still deciding whether he needs a rehab assignment before being activated, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Rodgers resumed baseball activities a few days ago and it appears he's continued to progress without issue. He's eligible for activation from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, and while there's no indication he'll return on that date, it doesn't appear to have been ruled out. Adael Amador has been filling in for Rodgers at second base but is likely to be sent back to Double-A Hartford once Rodgers is ready.

  • Yimi Garcia RP | TOR

    Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Lands on IL with elbow injury

    The Blue Jays placed Garcia on the 15-day injured list Monday due to right elbow ulnar neuritis.

    Garcia was forced out of his save chance in Sunday's 7-6 win over Cleveland after experiencing right elbow soreness. The MRI after Sunday's game showed no structural damage to Garcia's right elbow, but it did reveal ulnar nerve symptoms, per Hazel Mae of Sportsnet. While there was optimism that Garcia would be day-to-day with the injury, he will now be on the shelf until at least the beginning of July. With Jordan Romano (elbow) still on the IL, Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Monday that Chad Green will operate as the interim closer for Toronto, per Mae.

  • Ryan Weathers SP | MIA

    Marlins' Ryan Weathers: Asymptomatic but still shut down

    Weathers (finger) is asymptomatic but has yet to resume a throwing program, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    The left-hander has been out since early June with a left index finger strain. Weathers will be reevaluated early next week, so while he is feeling better, it appears he won't be cleared to throw for at least another week. He'll need to ramp things back up at that point, so a return before the end of June looks to be out of the question.

  • Ian Gibaut RP | CIN

    Reds' Ian Gibaut: Set for re-evaluation soon

    Reds manager David Bell said Friday that Gibaut (forearm) is scheduled to meet with a doctor soon before the next step in his rehab process is decided, reports.

    If Gibaut gets clearance to resume baseball activities upon meeting with the doctor, Bell noted that the right-hander could be cleared to return from the 60-day injured list in as soon as six weeks. Gibaut had been shut down all season with a right forearm strain before undergoing anterior interosseous nerve release surgery May 9.

  • Cole Tucker 3B | LAA

    Angels' Cole Tucker: DFA'd by Halos

    The Angels designated Tucker for assignment Monday.

    Tucker will head to waivers after the Angels reinstated Brandon Drury (hamstring) from the 10-day IL. Tucker saw his playing time steadily decrease over the last month as he struggled at the plate, slashing .180/.263/.300 over 57 plate appearances. Tucker could garner interest via trade or waivers from teams in need of infield depth.

  • Luis Rengifo 2B | LAA

    Angels' Luis Rengifo: Out of lineup but available

    Rengifo (wrist) is absent from the lineup for Monday's game versus the Brewers, Michael Huntley of The Sporting Tribune reports.

    Rengifo exited Sunday's loss to the Giants with a left wrist contusion as a result of a hit by pitch. The super utility player said he'll be available off the bench Monday, so it would seem he'll have a good shot to return to the lineup Tuesday. Luis Guillorme is handling third base in Rengifo's stead.

  • Jose Suarez RP | LAA

    Angels' Jose Suarez: Designated for assignment

    The Angels designated Suarez for assignment Monday.

    Suarez looked like he was going to be a solid mid-rotation starter for the Angels when he posted a 3.86 ERA and 188:69 K:BB over 207.1 innings from 2021-22. It's been tough sledding since then, though, with an 8.22 ERA over 29 appearances (eight starts). He also missed a large chunk of 2023 with shoulder problems. Still, as a 26-year-old that's shown promise in the past, there might be interest in Suarez via trade or waivers.

  • Red Sox's Masataka Yoshida: On bench Monday

    Yoshida (hand) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Yoshida was lifted from Sunday's 9-3 win over the Yankees in the seventh inning after being hit on the hand by a pitch, but his removal might have been precautionary more than anything. According to Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald, the lefty-hitting Yoshida's absence from the lineup Monday is a pre-planned decision, as the Blue Jays are bringing a lefty (Yusei Kikuchi) to the hill, and the Red Sox wanted to give outfielder Tyler O'Neill a day off from playing defense and instead use him as a designated hitter. Assuming his hand isn't bothering him, Yoshida should re-enter the lineup Tuesday, when the Red Sox are scheduled to face right-hander Chris Bassitt.
