Tigers' J.D. Martinez: Lifted Sunday as precaution

News: Martinez is still dealing with some soreness in his foot and was removed from Sunday's game against the White Sox as a precaution, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Martinez sprained his foot in mid-March during spring training and didn't make his debut with the big club until May 12 as a result. It doesn't sound like he's in danger of missing much -- if any -- time, but owners should nonetheless monitor his status closely as the team's series in Kansas City kicks off Monday. Consider Martinez day-to-day for now.

Justin Haley
Twins' Justin Haley: Placed on 10-day DL
Justin Haley, RP, MIN
5/28/2017
News: Haley was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness.

Haley spent two weeks on the DL in late April with biceps tendinitis, but this appears to be a new ailment. He'd given up six runs in five innings in May.

Mike Trout
Angels' Mike Trout: Dealing with thumb injury
Mike Trout, CF, LAA
5/28/2017
News: Trout sprained his thumb Sunday against the Marlins and should be considered day-to-day.

X-rays on Trout's thumb came back negative, which is good news, but the results of an MRI will indicate how severe of a sprain he's dealing with. As such, the star center fielder's timetable for returning to action remains unclear until the team releases the MRI results. Look for a status update on Trout prior to the start of Monday night's series opener against the Braves.

Rays' Jacob Faria: Exits after being struck by liner
Jacob Faria, SP, TB

News: Faria was hit on the left calf by a line drive during his start with Triple-A Durham on Sunday and exited after the fourth inning, Patrick Kinas of Westwood One reports.

The injury is believed to be only a minor scare for Faria, who expects to make his next start for Durham. The 23-year-old has been a strong performer at Triple-A this season, delivering a 3.48 ERA and an eye-popping 78 strikeouts in 51.2 innings.

Nick Tepesch
Twins' Nick Tepesch: Hits Triple-A DL with elbow issue
Nick Tepesch, SP, MIN
5/28/2017
News: Tepesch was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Rochester on Sunday due to a right elbow impingement, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Twins haven't permanently settled on Kyle Gibson and Adalberto Mejia as their Nos. 4 and 5 starters while Phil Hughes (shoulder) remains out, but Tepesch likely won't be under consideration to replace either pitcher in the rotation anytime soon while he tends to the elbow issue. Yohan Pino was recalled from Double-A Chattanooga to take Tepesch's spot on the Rochester roster.

Analysis: 

Charlie Morton
Astros' Charlie Morton: Won't throw for a full week
Charlie Morton, SP, HOU
5/28/2017
News: The Astros won't allow Morton (lat) to throw for at least one week, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This essentially ensures that Morton, who was moved to the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a right lat strain, won't be activated from the disabled list when first eligible June 4. He first experienced the issue while playing catch Saturday and will have his activity limited over the next seven days before being reevaluted by the Astros. With Morton hitting the DL, Mike Fiers will reclaim a spot in the rotation after Brad Peacock had previously displaced him.

Analysis: 

Kendall Graveman
Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Will hit DL on Monday
Kendall Graveman, SP, OAK
5/28/2017
News: Graveman (shoulder) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday, John Hickey of the East Bay Times reports.

It will mark Graveman's second DL stint of the season due to right shoulder soreness, an issue that sidelined him in April for about two weeks. Manager Bob Melvin hinted Saturday that Graveman would likely miss more than the minimum 10 days, so Daniel Mengden, who will be called up from Triple-A Nashville to start Monday against the Indians, could be in line for an extended stay in the rotation if he performs well in his season debut.

Analysis: 

Adam Jones
Orioles' Adam Jones: Still out of lineup Sunday
Adam Jones, CF, BAL
5/28/2017
News: Jones (ankle, hip) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Jones is on the bench for a second straight game with the sore ankle and hip, but neither issue is viewed as a major concern for the veteran center fielder. According to Kubatko, manager Buck Showalter said that he expects Jones to return to action Monday against the Yankees. Fantasy owners will want to verify as much before locking Jones into their lineups in weekly leagues, but he's looking like a safe option.

Analysis: 

Pablo Sandoval
Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval: Will continue rehab next three days
Pablo Sandoval, 3B, BOS
5/28/2017
News: Sandoval (knee) won't join the Red Sox for their three-game road series with the White Sox that begins Monday and will instead continue to rehab with Triple-A Pawtucket, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports.

Manager John Farrell indicated that Sandoval, who has been sidelined since April 24 with the right knee sprain, is still in need of getting more at-bats and innings in the field until the Red Sox feel comfortable activating him. Fortunately for Sandoval, everything seems sound on the health front, so once he's able to log a few more games with Pawtucket, he should be ready to come off the disabled list before the big club's weekend series in Baltimore. Deven Marrero will retain regular duties at third base for the Red Sox until Sandoval is activated.

Analysis: 

Corey Kluber
Indians' Corey Kluber: Confirmed for Thursday start
Corey Kluber, SP, CLE
5/28/2017
News: Manager Terry Francona relayed that Kluber (back) would start Thursday's game against the Athletics, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Kluber looked sharp in his rehab outing Friday for Double-A Akron, tossing five scoreless innings while giving up one hit and issuing no walks. The outing evidently convinced the organization that Kluber would be ready to make his next turn in the big leagues, so he'll be called upon to rejoin the rotation for the final game of the Tribe's homestand. The struggling Danny Salazar will temporarily move to the bullpen this week with Kluber returning, but over the long haul, either Mike Clevinger or Josh Tomlin would seem most at risk of losing his respective starting role.
