by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:07 pm ET) Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista (shoulder) is batting cleanup and serving as the designated hitter in Monday's matchup with the Red Sox.

Bautista took batting practice before the game and informed manager John Gibbons that he felt good enough to play, MLB.com reports. He'll be seeing his first action since Tuesday due to his shoulder issue. Bautista has hit .149/.322/.426 with four home runs and 10 RBI in 47 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:53 pm ET) Rays pitcher Alex Colome said Monday that he's ready to return to the team's rotation this weekend in Baltimore, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Colome began the season on the disabled list due to pneumonia. He made his second rehab start Sunday, throwing 63 pitches, and will likely slot into the rotation Friday or Saturday. He's made six starts and two relief appearances in his career, going 3-1 with a 2.50 ERA and 25:19 K:BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:53 pm ET) Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey, who is working his way back from a slightly fractured fibula, threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Monday, according to the Baltimore Sun, which is further speculating that he will pitch two innings in extended spring training Friday.

The 20-year-old Harvey showed great promise at Class A Delmarva in 2014 by posting a 7-5 record and 3.18 ERA with just 66 hits allowed in 87 2/3 innings. He walked 33 and struck out 106.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:52 pm ET) Phillies third baseman Cody Asche and catcher Carlos Ruiz are back in the starting lineup Monday against the Cardinals, the team announced.

Asche was given the day off Sunday after starting the last nine games in a row for Philadelphia. He is hitting .305 with two home runs and three RBI in 59 at-bats this season.

Ruiz got Sunday off after starting the last two games in a row, pushing Cameron Rupp to the bench. Ruiz is hitting .196 in 46 at-bats. The Phillies are currently the underdogs (+135) against St. Louis.


Cubs recall Junior Lake, option Brian Schlitter
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:46 pm ET) The Cubs recalled outfielder Junior Lake and optioned pitcher Brian Schlitter to Triple-A Iowa Monday, the team announced.

Lake enjoyed a promising rookie campaign in 2013 but hit just .211/246/.351 with nine home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 308 at-bats last season. He has delivered a .289/.340/.333 line with eight RBI and two stolen bases in 45 at-bats with Triple-A Iowa this year.

Schlitter surrendered six earned runs in 5 2/3 innings while with the Cubs.


Cardinals' Yadier Molina returns to the lineup, Jason Heyward out
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:41 pm ET) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Phillies after missing two games with a knee injury, the team announced. 

Molina, who is hitting .294 with eight RBI in 51 at-bats, was replaced by Tony Cruz for the last two days while Molina recovered. He will bat sixth. 

Outfielder Jason Heyward is out of the lineup Monday after picking up a hamstring injury in Sunday's game. Mark Reynolds will take his place and bat fifth. Jhonny Peralta will slide up to Heyward's regular two spot in the batting order.

The Cardinals are currently the favorites (-145) against Philadelphia.


Rangers anticipate John Hamilton will join team in a few weeks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:41 pm ET) The Rangers have announced that they anticipate Josh Hamilton will join the big-league club in mid-to-late May, per USA Today.

That announcement was made before his press conference Monday after the trade from the Angels became official.

Hamilton will be joining the team's extended spring training program in Arizona in the next few days as he continues his rehab from shoulder surgery.


Athletics' Melvin: 'We feel good about' Eric O'Flaherty
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:40 pm ET) Athletics lefty reliever Eric O'Flaherty has struggled early this season, but manager Bob Melvin is still optimistic about the way the southpaw has pitched, CSN Bay Area reports.

"The movement’s there," Melvin said. "The ball is down, (though) maybe not as many strikes. … We feel good about (O’Flaherty). It’s just that sometimes there are going to be periods when it’s not working out. This is one of them right now. You can’t just walk away from it. Plus, you only have so many guys down there."

O'Flaherty has allowed eight earned runs in 6 1/3 innings while striking out seven and walking four in his first seven appearances.


Illness might not keep Red Sox 1B Napoli on bench Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:30 pm ET) Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is not starting Monday against the White Sox, but that doesn't mean he won't play.

"He's under the weather," John Farrell told WEEI. "He's here, he's not completely unavailable, but he's not capable of starting right now. He's dealing with some illness."

Napoli has played in 18 of 19 games this season.


Rangers LF Carlos Peguero batting second Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:20 pm ET) Left fielder Carlos Peguero is not only getting a rare start for the Rangers on Monday night against visiting Seattle, but he has been moved into the second spot in the lineup for only the second time this season. This will mark his first start in the last five games.

The promotion of sorts is certainly not performance-based. Peguero hasn't had a hit since April 14, after which he is 0-for-12.
