David Wright
Mets' David Wright: Unavailable Sunday, possibly Monday as well

News: Wright (neck) will not be in the starting lineup Sunday, and may be unavailable Monday as well, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Wright was sent for a more thorough medical evaluation Sunday in an effort to further diagnose the neck ailment that held him out of Saturday's contest. At this point, a multi-game absence could be a best-case scenario, as a DL stint is certainly in play. Per Adam Rubin, the injury is not related to the back issue that forced Wright to miss nearly all of 2015, but it may have something to do with the shoulder soreness he's been experiencing. Look for more clarity on the situation to surface over the coming days. At this point, however, Wright appears to be a risky option to lock into next week's lineups.

News: Updating a previous report, Thompson (back) is available off the bench for Sunday's evening matchup against the Mets, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Thompson was held out of the original starting lineup after leaving Saturday's game with lower-back soreness. It turns out the ailment isn't overly serious, as Thompson has been able to swing a bat, and could be called upon Sunday in a pinch-hit situation.

News: Escobar is day-to-day with a bruised left wrist, Pedro Moura of the LA Times reports.

The news is seemingly positive for Escobar, as he appears to have avoided a more serious ailment. He'll likely return to action as soon as he can swing a bat at or close to pain-free.

Kenta Maeda
Dodgers' Kenta Maeda: Plans to start Thursday
Kenta Maeda, SP, LAD
4:08 PM
News: Maeda says his hand feels better than expected and plans to make his scheduled start Thursday against the Cubs, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Maeda was struck in the hand with a comebacker in Saturday's game, and the team sent the right-hander for precautionary X-rays. Those results came back negative, and the next step for Maeda will be his regular side session. A successful workout there would all but cement Maeda's status as Thursday's starter.

Yasmani Grandal
Dodgers' Yasmani Grandal: Out of Sunday's lineup
Yasmani Grandal, C, LAD
4:06 PM
News: Grandal is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

The Dodgers tweeted an initial lineup featuring Grandal, but corrected their mistake shortly thereafter. It will be A.J. Ellis behind the plate for the evening contest, as it's typically Ellis who catches lefty Clayton Kershaw. Plus, Grandal had caught four straight games, so the timing was right for a routine day of rest.

Jhonny Peralta
Cardinals' Jhonny Peralta: Suffers setback with cut thumb

News: Peralta cut his thumb while opening a box Saturday and will have his timetable pushed back as a result, ESPN reports.

Peralta has yet to see action in the majors this season because of a torn ligament in his left thumb that required surgery. He certainly went the wrong direction with the most recent event, as he's expected to require three or four days off after receiving three stitches. The veteran shortstop remains without a definitive timetable, but he could reportedly move up to Triple-A Memphis when he resumes his rehab according to manager Mike Matheny.

Hyun-Jin Ryu
Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Suffers setback with shoulder
Hyun-Jin Ryu, SP, LAD
3:36 PM
News: Ryu is dealing with some soreness following his most recent outing and has been taken off his current assignment, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

Ryu's continues to work his way back from a shoulder issue that's kept him on the sideline since the beginning of the season. The 26-year-old southpaw will now back off "a bit" in his recovery, with an unclear timetable ahead. Expect further updates as he picks up his rehab again.

Evan Scribner
Mariners' Evan Scribner: Moved to 60-day DL
Evan Scribner, RP, SEA
3:34 PM
News: Scribner (back) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday.

Scribner has been sidelined since early March due to back problems, so he's already missed the 60-day minimum and can be activated whenever he returns to full health. By moving Scribner to the 60-day DL, the Mariners were able to open up a 40-man roster spot for utility man Patrick Kivlehan, who was acquired from the Rangers on Sunday.

News: Kivlehan was acquired by the Mariners on Sunday from the Rangers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.

The Mariners cleared a spot on the 40-man roster for Kivlehan by placing reliever Evan Scribner (back) on the 60-day DL, but it's uncertain if the utility man will join the big-league club anytime soon. The 26-year-old was holding down a putrid .184/.252/.262 slash line at Triple-A Round Rock prior to the trade.

Dustin Ackley
Yankees' Dustin Ackley: Injures shoulder Sunday, MRI on tap
Dustin Ackley, 1B, NYY
3:22 PM
News: Ackley suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Rays and will undergo an MRI, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Ackley said he felt his shoulder pop out when he dove back into first base while attempting to retrieve a pickoff throw, which resulted in the Yankees bringing the ailing Mark Teixeira (neck) into the game late as a defensive replacement. Manager Joe Girardi told the media that it's a "distinct possibility" that Ackley will have to head to the DL, but the Yankees won't make a decision on that front until the results of the MRI are read.
