by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:18 pm ET) Tigers DH Victor Martinez is still battling knee soreness, but it shouldn't force him from the lineup. 

Manager Brad Ausmus said that Martinez is "certainly not 100 percent", per the Detroit Free Press, but he doesn't anticipate sitting Martinez down against right handed pitchers in the near future.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:13 pm ET) White Sox pitcher Jake Petricka threw another scoreless inning on Saturday. Petricka is on minor league injury rehab in Triple-A Charlotte as he tries to return from the 15-day disabled list for an elbow injury.

Petricka walked two and struck out two in the sixth inning. He threw 12 strikes in 24 pitches.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said he got good reports on the appearance, per MLB.com


Padres' Justin Upton (quad) out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:09 pm ET) Padres left fielder Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs due to a quad strain.

It'll be the first game this season Upton hasn't started for the Padres. He's hit .326/.373/.630 with three home runs and eight RBI in 46 at-bats. He felt better after receiving postgame treatment, MLB.com reports, and the injury doesn't appear to be serious.

With Upton sidelined, Will Venable will draw the start in left field, while catcher Derek Norris will shift to the cleanup spot after not starting Saturday.

The Padres are underdogs (+120) in Chicago Sunday.


Tigers' Justin Verlander's throwing session postponed
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:08 pm ET) Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander won't throw light toss on Sunday, as originally planned, per MLive

Verlander is on the 15-day disabled list with a triceps injury. 

Verlander is not scheduled for an MRI, and the team said that there are no plans for any further tests on him. 


Shane Robinson replaces Jordan Schafer in Twins' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) Twins center fielder Jordan Schafer is not listed in Sunday's starting lineup. 

Schafer gets a rest, as Shane Robinson replaces him in center. Robinson will bat ninth in the order. 


Eduardo Escobar in Twins' Sunday lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:58 am ET) Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar was in the team's starting lineup for Sunday's game. Escobar had been questionable for the game with a toe injury. 

The toe forced Escobar out of Friday's game in the eighth inning, and he wasn't in the starting lineup on Saturday. He ended up pinch hitting in Saturday's game, however.
