INJURY UPDATES

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

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

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

- Philadelphia 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.
