Reds finally place C Devin Mesoraco (hip) on DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:42 pm ET) The hip issue that has prevented Reds C Devin Mesoraco from playing since last Wednesday now has him on the 15-day disabled list, the Cincinnati Enquirer has reported.

Mesoraco is dealing with a left hip impingement. The Reds had put off the move in hopes that he could pinch-hit and eventually get back behind the plate.

The loss is another blow to a Cincinnati team that has lost eight in a row. Mesoraco, who emerged as one of the premier hitting catchers in the big leagues last season, was off to a poor start in 2015 with a slash line of .178/.275/.244. He has no home runs, two runs scored and a mere two RBI in 45 at-bats.


Rockies' Justin Morneau (concussion) not on road trip
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:42 pm ET) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau did not join the team for the outset of a six-game road trip as expected, the Denver Post reports.

Morneau is on the concussion disabled list, and while there's a chance he joins the team on the road later in the week, he's not ready to return from the injury just yet. He has hit .290/.317/.450 with three home runs and nine RBI in 100 at-bats.


Giants' Hunter Pence batting cleanup Monday vs. Brewers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:34 pm ET) Giants right fielder Hunter Pence is batting cleanup in Monday's matchup with the Brewers.

It's just the second time since Pence's return that he's been slotted into the fourth spot in the lineup. He has plenty of experience against Monday starter Kyle Lohse, going 17 for 57 with four doubles and five RBI against Lohse in his career.

The Giants are underdogs (+115) in Milwaukee on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.


Report: Mets C Travis d'Arnaud to begin rehab games Tuesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:33 pm ET) Shelved Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud is set to play five innings in an extended spring training game Tuesday, per NJ.com.

The report further states that d'Arnaud could report to Triple-A Las Vegas in five or six days and that GM Sandy Alderson believes he could be back with the Mets as early as June 1 in San Diego, but more likely the following series against Arizona.

d'Arnaud was off to a productive start before going down with a fractured pinkie. He was batting .317 with 10 RBI in just 41 at-bats.


Orioles SP Kevin Gausman to throw simulated game June 2
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:18 pm ET) Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman, who has been sidelined since the start of the month with shoulder tendinitis, is tentatively scheduled to throw a simulated game on June 2, per MASNSports.com. 

It's all part of a carefully calculated rehab plan by the Orioles, who will have Gausman throw a bullpen session Tuesday and face live hitters on Friday, setting the stage for the two-inning sim game. He will then likely head to Triple-A Norfolk to stretch his arm out. 

Gausman is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in eight games this season. 


Cardinals return Jason Heyward, Matt Holliday to Monday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:15 pm ET) Cardinals outfielders Jason Heyward (hip) and Matt Holliday (arm) are both ready to roll Monday against Arizona.

Heyward, who has not played since Friday, has been hitless in six of his last 10 games.

Holliday was sidelind only Sunday with a contusion. He has slumped recently, but still boasts a fine slash line of .314/.434/.443.


Rockies: Illness has OF Carlos Gonzalez scratched Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:07 pm ET) Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has been scratched from the Monday lineup against the host Reds because of illness, per MLB.com.

Gonzalez, who did not play Sunday, has been unproductive in 2015 with a slash line of .206/.285/.326.


Report: Elbow of Reds SP Johnny Cueto still not right Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:55 am ET) Concern is growing that the right elbow ailment plaguing Reds ace Johnny Cueto is worse that first anticipated, per Associated Press.

Cueto is having the elbow examined Monday after missing his Sunday start in Cleveland with stiffness. Though he exclaimed Sunday that he was not worred about it, the elbow was still not feeling right Monday.

The loss of Cueto for any significant period would be devastating for a Cincinnati team on an eight-game losing streak. He has eight quality starts in nine outings and a 3.03 ERA.


Sandoval returns to Red Sox lineup, Holt out
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:39 am ET) After missing five straight starts with a knee injury, third baseman Pablo Sandoval returns to the starting lineup for the Red Sox on Monday against the Twins. 

Sandoval pinch-hit from left side in Sunday's game and with right-hander Ricky Nolasco starting for the Twins, he will be able to hit lefty against a pitcher he's had a lot of success against, going .476 with three homers and seven RBIs. 

Sandoval's replacement at third base, Brock Holt, is out of the lineup Monday after he was hit by a pitch on his arm Sunday and began to lose feeling in his hand. 


Struggling SS Danny Santana sits again for Twins
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(11:25 am ET) Twins shortstop Danny Santana is out of the lineup for a second straight game Monday, replaced by Eduardo Escobar for the game against the Red Sox. 

Santana has had a rough week at the plate, going 1-for-16 with five strikeouts and no wallks. The free-swinging Santana has just two walks in 157 plate appearances this season. 

The Twins (+103) are slight underdogs per VegasInsider.com.
