Caleb Joseph, Alejandro De Aza, Travis Snider out of Orioles' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:33 am ET) The Orioles will rest three starters in Sunday's game against Boston. 

Catcher Caleb Joseph, left fielder Alejandro De Aza and right fielder Travis Snider, who have combined for 36 starts this season at their respective positions, are all out of the lineup.

Ryan Lavarnway gets his fifth start of the year at catcher, batting eighth. Delmon Young is in right, batting fourth. It's his fourth start of the year but third in four days.

Steve Pearce will play left, starting for the third time this year. He's batting sixth. 

The Orioles are +100 money line underdogs at home against Boston. 


Nationals' Max Scherzer tests thumb Sunday, remains day-to-day
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:32 am ET) Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer tested his swollen thumb by throwing in the outfield Sunday but did not see any mound work, CSNWashington.com reports.

Scherzer said that his thumb is still sore and that he's unsure about whether he'll be able to make his scheduled start Tuesday.

"I can't say that, because I'm literally day-to-day," he said.

Scherzer did indicate that the thumb felt better Sunday, but it's apparent he won't pitch unless he feels 100 percent. He's just 1-2 over his first four starts but owns a 1.26 ERA and 29:4 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.


Sandy Leon replaces Ryan Hanigan at catcher for Red Sox
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) Sandy Leon is in the Red Sox starting lineup for Sunday's game at Baltimore, bumping Ryan Hanigan

Leon starts for the second time in four games and sixth time this season. 

The Sox are -105 money line favorites over Baltimore. 


Cardinals C Yadier Molina (knee) out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:25 am ET) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Molina is dealing with knee soreness after taking a foul tip off his knee guard Friday. The team called up a backup catcher before Sunday's game to back up Tony Cruz, who is batting eighth Sunday while making his third start in the last four days.

The Cardinals are road favorites (-144) in Milwaukee Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


David Ortiz out of Red Sox lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:23 am ET) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Baltimore. 

Ortiz has started 14 of the team's 15 DH games, including nine straight. He'll be replaced Sunday by Hanley Ramirez, who moves to DH from left field. Utility man Brock Holt replaces Ramirez in left. 

The Red Sox are -105 money line favorites at Baltimore.


Dodgers considering DL trip for Yasiel Puig
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:21 am ET) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated Saturday that the possibility of sending right fielder Yasiel Puig (hamstring) to the disabled list has been discussed, the Orange County Register reports.

"If it’s the best thing, then it’s the best thing," Mattingly said. "Obviously, he’s very important to us. In a sense, it’s obvious that he’s not important to us if he can’t play. If you’re going to be banged up every third or fourth day or if he tries to run hard and extend, then we’re going to be better off letting him get healthy."

Puig missed significant time last week due to the hamstring issue but returned to the starting lineup Friday. However, he reinjured the hamstring trying to beat out a ground ball on the same day and was out of the lineup Saturday. Mattingly indicated that he'll leave the decision up to the team's medical staff.

"That decision does not come down to me. That decision is for medical," Mattingly said Saturday. "He played three days in San Francisco and did not have one issue. And he played the day game (Thursday). We talked about giving him the day game after the night game in San Francisco. Medical didn’t feel like he needed it. He played well, made some plays, didn’t look like he needed it. Then yesterday obviously he extended trying to beat that play out and it looked like it grabbed on him a little bit."

Puig has hit .279/.380/.465 with two home runs and four RBI in 43 at-bats.


Phillies' Freddy Galvis (rib) starting, 'feeling pretty good' Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:14 am ET) Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis is back in the lineup Sunday after leaving Saturday's game with a rib injury following an excellent defensive play.

"When I landed after the throw, my elbow hit my rib," Galvis said before Sunday's game, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "I am feeling pretty good now."

Galvis is batting eighth Sunday. He owns a .328/.381/.431 line with one home run and eight RBI in 58 at-bats.

The Phillies are favorites (-110) against the Braves Sunday.


Blue Jays' Jose Bautista getting acupuncture on sore shoulder
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:00 am ET) Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista has missed five games with a sore shoulder. He told the media that the injury was improving, and he's hopeful that he'll be able to play in Toronto's upcoming series with Boston. 

Bautista's treatment of the injury has included acupuncture on the shoulder, per TSN Radio. He remains day-to-day.


Blue Jays' Jose Reyes to have MRI on oblique
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:55 am ET) Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes has been playing through rib soreness for more than a week. Unsure if it's a rib injury or an oblique strain, Reyes has dealt with the pain, although it prevents the switch hitter from batting left handed. 

Reyes is out of Sunday's lineup, but he told Sportsnet that it wasn't injury related--just a day off to rest. 

While Reyes said the injury isn't getting any worse, he'll still have an MRI when the team returns to Toronto after its current road trip. 


Braves' Markakis, Simmons remain atop lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:54 am ET) Braves right fielder Nick Markakis is leading off and shortstop Andrelton Simmons is batting second for the second straight game Sunday.

Both players saw their first appearances in those respective positions in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Phillies and will reprise their roles Sunday. In addition, lefty Kelly Johnson is batting cleanup for the first time this season, with first baseman Freddie Freeman slotting in third for the second straight day (and the third time this season).

The Braves are underdogs (+100) against the Phillies Sunday.
