Jarrod Dyson
Mariners' Jarrod Dyson: Held out of action Tuesday
Jarrod Dyson, CF, SEA
5:12 PM
News: Dyson (toe) is not in the linuep Tuesday against the Red Sox, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

It's unlikely that he would've slotted into the lineup given that left-hander Drew Pomeranz is taking the hill for Boston, although this still marks the third game in a row that Dyson will miss. He'll be replaced by Guillermo Heredia in center field for the evening.

Ryan Dull
Athletics' Ryan Dull: Wednesday return in play
Ryan Dull, RP, OAK
4:40 PM
News: Dull (knee) could return from the disabled list as soon as Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Despite this good news, Slusser also comments that Thursday is still the expected return date for the right-handed reliever. Dull is with the team already for Tuesday's game (although he's still inactive), so the timing of his activation is likely dependent on how he feels in the coming days as well as how heavily the bullpen is used Tuesday night.

Analysis: 

Jaycob Brugman
Athletics' Jaycob Brugman: Potentially available off bench
Jaycob Brugman, CF, OAK
4:37 PM
News: Manager Bob Melvin said that Brugman (neck) might be available off the bench for Tuesday's contest with the Blue Jays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The rookie outfielder was seen participating in drills on the field prior to the game's start, so it's certainly not out of the question. Brugman apparently woke up with some neck soreness, so even if he's unable to appear Tuesday night, a Wednesday return to action is fairly reasonable.

Analysis: 

Jason Kipnis
Indians' Jason Kipnis: Potentially nearing rehab assignment
Jason Kipnis, 2B, CLE
4:26 PM
News: According to manager Terry Francona, Kipnis (hamstring) has an outside chance of starting a rehab assignment over the weekend, Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Kipnis just graduated to taking batting practice and running on the field Tuesday, so this still seems a bit bullish. However, he is expected to take grounders Tuesday and work on lateral movement thereafter, so it does appear that a rehab assignment is on the horizon, whether it's this weekend or sometime next week.

Analysis: 

Alex Meyer
Angels' Alex Meyer: MRI results encouraging
Alex Meyer, SP, LAA
4:15 PM
News: An MRI on Meyer's shoulder reportedly brought back promising results, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The exact findings hasn't been revealed, although the team is apparently fairly confident that Meyer will be able to return to the rotation soon. However, it is good to be somewhat cautious in this instance given his history of shoulder injuries, so expectations should be tempered until a firm timetable for his return is released.

Analysis: 

Chris Davis
Orioles' Chris Davis: Hopeful for Wednesday return
Chris Davis, 1B, BAL
3:44 PM
News: Davis was diagnosed with a stomach virus but hopes to get back in the lineup Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

It seems like the issue at hand isn't too severe. Davis will be replaced at first base by Trey Mancini for Tuesday's contest, but look for the slugger to return to action in Wednesday's series finale.

Analysis: 

Aaron Hicks
Yankees' Aaron Hicks: Remains without timetable for rehab stint
Aaron Hicks, CF, NYY
3:40 PM
News: Hicks (oblique) is scheduled to hit in the batting cage Tuesday for the first time since getting injured, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

Despite the step in the right direction, the outfielder remains without an estimate of when he'll be able to begin rehab games. Hicks has been out of action for a month now, and he likely won't be ready until sometime in August. Look for Brett Gardner to continue manning center field in his stead until then.

Analysis: 

Bobby Wahl
Athletics' Bobby Wahl: Sent to 60-day DL
Bobby Wahl, RP, OAK
3:31 PM
News: Wahl (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

This is largely a paperwork move, as Wahl has already missed 60 days of action. He's still expected to be activated from the disabled list any day now, although the Athletics will need to clear space on the 40-man roster to bring him back into the fold. For the time being, Chris Bassitt will replace him on the 40-man.

Analysis: 

Danny Barnes
Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Heads to DL with shoulder issue
Danny Barnes, RP, TOR
3:10 PM
News: Barnes was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a right shoulder impingement, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

No word has come forth as to when the injury was sustained, but it may go to explain why he's been so bad since the All-Star break. It's unclear how long he'll stay on the shelf, but things should become clearer as he ramps up his activity again. Matt Dermody will replace him on the active roster.

Analysis: 

Tyler Austin
Yankees' Tyler Austin: Returns to running
Tyler Austin, 1B, NYY
1:42 PM
News: Austin (hamstring) was seen running in the outfield with the training staff Tuesday, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports.

Austin has been on the disabled list since June 29, and given the fact that he's just getting back to running definitely means that he won't meet his initial return timetable of four weeks. The progress is good to see, however, and his next steps will likely be returning to baseball activities, which could happen in the next week or two.
