Yankees' Carlos Beltran sits, Chase Headley bats second Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Rangers, while third baseman Chase Headley is batting second.

Beltran has been in the No. 2 spot for the last three games with leadoff man Jacoby Ellsbury out and typical No. 2 batter Brett Gardner bumped up one spot, but with Beltran out of the lineup on Sunday, Headley will see his first action in the spot since April 17. Garrett Jones draws the start in right field in place of Beltran.

The Yankees are favorites (-145) at home on Sunday night, per VegasInsider.com.


Nationals P Gio Gonzalez has strong outing in win
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

This was a much better performance for Gonzalez, who was in command throughout the game. In his previous two outings, Gonzalez allowed a total of 11 earned runs while only striking out four.

Gonzalez now has a 4.53 ERA this season.

His next start is projected for Saturday against the Reds.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:11 pm ET) The Yankees optioned RHP Branden Pinder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre, the team announced on Sunday. Pinder had a 2.16 ERA in six appearances. 

To replace him on the roster, the Yankees called up reliever Jacob Lindgren , who was 1-1 with three saves and a 1.23 ERA in Triple-A.

The Yankees also transferred shortstop Brendan Ryan to the 60-day disabled list. Ryan was on the 15-day DL, with a calf injury.  


Red Sox's Justin Masterson to have one more bullpen before rehab
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:54 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Justin Masterson threw a "pretty intense" bullpen session on Friday, manager John Farrell said on Sunday. 

Masterson is moving closer to a return from the shoulder tendinitis that landed him on the 15-day disabled list on May 13. 

"He'll have at least one more. We'll probably get a total of three bullpens before we send him out on a rehab assignment," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "He's making strong progress in terms of the intensity of the throws, the volume of the throws."


Rockies unsure if P Jordan Lyles can make next start
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3:53 pm ET) The Rockies are unsure if pitcher Jordan Lyles will be able to make his next scheduled start, according to The Denver Post

Lyles sprained the big toe of his left foot during Saturday's start against the Giants. 

"As far as the status of his next start, we aren't sure yet," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "There are some things that have to happen. He has to throw his side (session), and those are determining factors."

Lyles has been known to play through pain. Earlier this month, he took an Albert Pujols' comebacker to his hand and was able to make his next start. Lyles is scheduled to start this Friday. 

"I just over-extended my big toe and something popped," Lyles said Sunday. "Hopefully I will try to be out there for my next start, like I did last time with my hand."
