Bailey (biceps) was activated from the disabled list Monday.
As expected, Bailey will join the Red Sox's bullpen and immediately take over as the closer, with Junichi Tazawa earning spot save chances on occasion. He made just one rehab appearance, allowing one run (via a homer) with two strikeouts in one frame, but that was likely just a blip on the radar.
Van Slyke left Sunday's game in Atlanta after fouling two pitches off his left leg, MLB.com reports.
Van Slyke was earning a spot start in right field for Andre Ethier, who took over when he was removed. In 12 at-bats with the Dodgers since his call-up May 10, he has slugged three homers. Though that's an unsustainable clip, Van Slyke has great power potential at the plate. In any case, he may be out of commission for the next few days.
Howard will have a precautionary MRI on his left knee Monday, MLB.com reports.
Howard missed Sunday's game due to the injury and will likely sit out again Monday against Miami. A stay on the disabled list may be in his future, which would result in Michael Young and Kevin Frandsen getting most of the reps in the corner infield spots.
Profar was called up from Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday, the Rangers' Executive Vice President of Communications reports.
The move was made following the placement of Ian Kinsler on the disabled list due to a rib injury. Profar's second stint in the big leagues follows a great line at Round Rock to begin the season: he's batting .278/.370/.438 with four homers, 19 RBI, 27 runs scored, and six stolen bases in 144 at-bats. However, it's unclear exactly how much time he'll see, as Leury Garcia is manning second base for the second consecutive day.
Kinsler was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday due to a right intercostal strain, the Rangers' Executive Vice President of Communications reports.
Kinsler tested out his bruised ribs in the batting cage Sunday, during which he still felt pain in the region. As a corresponding move, Jurickson Profar has been called up to provide depth as a middle infielder, but Leury Garcia will get the nod at second base for the second day in a row.
Ramirez is sitting Sunday, and there's some speculation that his right knee is still giving him problems.
This is the second time in four games that Ramirez has been out of the starting lineup. If his knee is indeed an issue, we could see him rested more frequently in the near future. While it's annoying to have him missing games, he's been productive during his brief time on the field. He's hitting .352 with three home runs and 12 RBI in just 54 at-bats.
Bailey (biceps) will be activated from the disabled list Monday, the Boston Globe reports.
Bailey last pitched on April 28, but it is unclear if he'll immediately take over as the Red Sox's closer. Meanwhile, he allowed two hits, including a homer, to go with two strikeouts in one inning during his rehab assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket, which doesn't bode well for his immediate prospects.
McCutchen is a late scratch from Sunday's lineup with a sore right knee.
McCutchen was in the Pirates' original lineup, but with him sitting now, Starling Marte has been re-inserted into the lineup and will start in center. Since McCutchen was in the original lineup, we're thinking the injury isn't likely too serious.
Kubel missed the last five games with an aggravated left quad. Depending on how well he plays and how well the quad holds up, managers in weekly leagues will need to gauge whether it's worth risking the games he might miss this week before putting him into lineups. Daily leaguers should feel comfortable rolling Kubel out there Sunday.
Garcia will be placed on the disabled list with a left shoulder injury, mlb.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.
Garcia's 2012 campaign was largely spoiled by a shoulder injury, so the level of concern is even higher than it would be for most pitchers. The Cardinals have yet to name a replacement starter or comment on the extent and exact nature of Garcia's injury, but hopefully we will know more soon. Fantasy owners should at least be prepared for the possibility that this could be serious.
Cingrani was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Although he pitched very well, with a 41:9 K:BB over six starts, Mike Leake held his own since Cingrani's promotion and the young lefty is simply the odd-man out for now until the Reds have another opening in their rotation later this season.
Garza (arm) will join the Cubs' rotation Tuesday against the Pirates, Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald reports.
Carlos Villanueva has been sent to the bullpen to make room in the rotation for Garza. As it lines up, Garza will make two road starts in his first week back with a second outing coming Sunday at Cincinnati.
