    • Giancarlo Stanton NYY LF
      Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton: Suffers right knee contusion
      13m ago

      Stanton's early exit from Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays was due to a right knee contusion, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

      Stanton left the game in the first inning with what at first appeared to be a hand injury after a slide into third base, but per Hoch, the knock is actually a right knee contusion. The slugger will get an MRI which should provide more information as to the extent of the injury, but he should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

      Dodgers' Corey Seager: May return after All-Star break
      19m ago

      Manager Dave Roberts said the team hopes Seager (hamstring) will rejoin the Dodgers right after the All-Star break in Boston, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

      Seager has resumed running and swinging a bat over the last few days and should now begin to ramp up his baseball activities. The 25-year-old was already expected to play in rehab games prior to the All-Star break, so it's no surprise the team is looking for him to return immediately after the midseason festivities.

      1h ago

      Ramos went 2-for-5 with a grand slam for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

      Ramos has been raking in the Pacific Coast League, as this sixth-inning grand slam marked his 17th long ball of the season to go along with an impressive .300/.393/.583 slash line through 270 at-bats. He's also driven in 62 runs and laced 14 doubles. This is the 24-year-old's first stint above Double-A in his six-season minor-league career, so he's certainly doing a good job with the opportunity to this point.

      Rios went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a walk for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

      Rios got off to a slow start this season, but he's been hot in June, as this was seventh long ball of the month, and he's hit .321 and driven in 17 runs in 20 games over that stretch. The 25-year-old's .248/.306/.466 slash line is still lagging behind his output from his previous minor-league seasons, but he has cranked 13 homers in 288 at-bats, which is already three more than he hit in 341 at-bats in the Pacific Coast League last year.

      Contreras went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's 8-3 win over the Braves.

      Contreras' second-inning solo shot -- his 16th of the season -- didn't come without drama. His counterpart at catcher, Tyler Flowers, took offense to Contreras' celebration, resulting in a dugout-clearing incident after the two catchers exchanged words when Contreras crossed home plate. The verbal spat fortunately didn't result in an ejection for Contreras, who plated two more runs to give him 45 RBI on the season, tying him for second place among all catchers in the majors. He'll be back behind the dish for the second game of the series Tuesday.

When asked if the injury could be a career-altering problem, he responded, "It's looking that way," per Ardaya.

      Cardinals' Alex Reyes: Out with strained pectoral muscle
      3h ago

      Reyes landed on the minor-league injured list at Triple-A Memphis with a strained pectoral muscle Tuesday Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

      Reyes is expected to miss two or three starts. He owns a 7.39 ERA in 28 innings for Memphis this season, so he doesn't appear all that likely to push for a big-league roster spot anytime soon despite his considerable promise as a prospect.

      Athletics' Khris Davis: Will start Wednesday
      4h ago

      Davis, who is not in Tuesday's lineup, will start in the outfield Wednesday in St. Louis, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

      With the A's playing two games in a National League park, it is good to know he will get to start at least one of those contests before returning to his normal role for a four-game series against the Angels to close out the week. He will likely come off the bench Tuesday as a pinch hitter.

      Rangers' Hunter Pence: Likely out through June
      5h ago

      Pence (groin) is unlikely to return until July, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

      He is only running at 60-70 percent, which manager Chris Woodward says likely rules Pence out through the series in Tampa Bay this weekend. Joey Gallo and Nomar Mazara should typically start from center to left while Shin-Soo Choo and Willie Calhoun start in left field and designated hitter while Pence is sidelined.

      5h ago

      Davis is not in Tuesday's lineup in St. Louis, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

      The A's have a two-game series in St. Louis, so it's possible Davis will be on the bench for Wednesday's game as well, as the designated hitter spot is not an option. He will resume his normal role for a four-game series against the Angels that begins Thursday.

      Alonso is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Red Sox, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

      1d ago

      Encarnacion is not starting Monday against the Blue Jays.

      Encarnacion started seven straight games since heading to New York, though the Yankees' loaded lineup may result in a fair number of days off for the veteran. Luke Voit will be the designated hitter Monday, with DJ LeMahieu starting at first base.

      Royals' Lucas Duda: Benched against righty
      1d ago

      Duda is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Indians.

      Duda has recorded just two hits in 20 at-bats in his seven games since returning from the 10-day injured list earlier this month. He may not even be a strong-side platoon player at this point, as he'll sit in favor of Cheslor Cuthbert on Monday, despite the fact that the Royals are facing a right-handed starting pitcher (Adam Plutko).
