Here's all that's worth knowing for Monday, June 23 (click here for today's scores) …


- Blue Jays: OF Jose Bautista is day-to-day with a hamstring strain.

- Nationals: C Wilson Ramos (hamstring) is expected to come off the DL on Thursday. (Mark Zuckerman via Twitter)

- Padres: Have placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the DL with shoulder soreness.

- Phillies: LHP Cliff Lee (elbow) is scheduled to throw a third bullpen session on Tuesday, writes Corey Seidman of CSN Philly. Provided he suffers no setbacks, he'll throw simulated game on Saturday then may begin a one- or two-game minor-league rehab assignment. Lee still has a great deal of money left on his contract, but if he returns in time to get in a few starts before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, then he could elicit plenty of interest among contenders. That, of course, assumes that the Phillies want to trade him and that he's willing to accept a trade.


- Cardinals: Will call up top pitching prospect LHP Marco Gonzales to make his MLB debut on Wednesday against the Rockies.

- Mets: The team may consider cutting bait on struggling outfielder Chris Young ... The Mets announced that they will recall C Travis D'Arnaud on Tuesday.

- Rangers: A source tells Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News that GM Jon Daniels is busy trying to gauge the trade value of his "core-type" players on the roster.

- Red Sox, Dodgers: According to WEEI, there's nothing developing when it comes to any rumored Red Sox-Dodgers trade involving Matt Kemp.
