Mets' Jose Reyes: Suffers Grade 1 intercostal strain

News: Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain Tuesday and will be "out for a couple days," according to manager Terry Collins, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports.

He went to the hospital for testing after Tuesday's doubleheader. It sounds like he will be out at least until Friday against the Rockies, and he could miss a good chunk of the weekend series. Wilmer Flores should start at third base in the meantime with Kelly Johnson serving as the utility infielder off the bench.

Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Begins rehab assignment Tuesday

News: Hernandez (ribs) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Tuesday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

A bout of left rib cage inflammation cost Hernandez nearly a month, but he's ready to return to action with the Dodgers' High-A affiliate, putting him on track for an early-August return to the big club. He will man center field in his first rehab game -- he made just four appearances there before hitting the DL (zero starts). Hernandez has played primarily in left field this season.

Cory Gearrin
Giants' Cory Gearrin: Nearing rehab assignment
Cory Gearrin, RP, SF

News: Gearrin (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, and if all goes well, he will head out on a rehab assignment, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

Gearrin has been slowly rebuilding strength in his right shoulder over the past several weeks, and now appears on the verge of joining a minor league affiliate. The 30-year-old was pitching well before landing on the disabled list, posting a 3.89 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 14 holds in 41 appearances. It's hard to imagine he'll be in the mix for saves at any point this year, however, with Hunter Strickland and Sergio Romo looming as the top options behind closer Santiago Casilla.

Homer Bailey
Reds' Homer Bailey: Expected to return Sunday

News: Bailey (elbow) is expected to start Sunday against the Padres, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds are leaving themselves some wiggle room, saying the Sunday return date is tentative -- they want to see how he responds in the coming days -- but it sounds like Bailey's long road back from Tommy John surgery is about to come to an end. Bailey built his pitch count up to 98 during Monday's rehab outing with Triple-A Louisville, but he only lasted 4.1 innings, allowing five hits and four walks while striking out four. He will have somewhat of a soft landing in his 2016 debut, but those in standard mixed leagues may want to wait and see how Bailey fares in his first few starts before deploying him.

Yasiel Puig
Dodgers' Yasiel Puig: Available off bench Thursday

News: Puig (hamstring) will be available off the bench Thursday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

The hamstring issue keep Puig on the bench for a fifth straight game, but manager Dave Roberts said Puig is feeling better and will be available in a pinch-hit capacity. Fortunately for Puig, the Dodgers have two off days this week, and at this point he seems to have a decent chance of avoiding the DL.

Clayton Kershaw
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Still not throwing

News: Kershaw (back) remains shut down from throwing, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said last week that Kershaw would remain shut down until his back pain completely subsides. The Dodgers expect Kershaw to return this season, but a timetable probably won't take shape until Kershaw ramps up close to rehab assignment. The starting pitching market is thin, but the Dodgers figure to push hard for a quality starter at the trade deadline with Kershaw on the shelf.

Andre Ethier
Dodgers' Andre Ethier: Takes batting practice Tuesday

News: Ethier (leg) took batting practice on the field prior to Tuesday's game, David Vassegh of AM 570 Los Angeles reports.

Ethier cleared a fairly significant hurdle Tuesday, taking on-field batting practice for the first time since he suffered the injury in March, but he remains out a timetable to return. A bone scan earlier this month showed that Ethier's fracture was still not completely healed, but the outfielder said he is optimistic that he can return and contribute this season.

Zack Greinke
Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Likely to pitch in AZL game Friday
Zack Greinke, SP, ARI
7/26/2016
News: Greinke (oblique) will likely pitch in an Arizona League game Friday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander threw 40 pitches in a side session Tuesday, sitting down after the first 25 pitches to simulate a break between innings, and now appears set to return to live action with the team's rookie-level affiliate. Greinke was still experiencing tightness in his oblique as recently as 10 days ago, and his rehab schedule will likely be tentative moving forward, but right now a mid-August return is looking possible.

Analysis: 

Jake Lamb
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Hoping for weekend return
Jake Lamb, 3B, ARI
7/26/2016
News: Manager Chip Hale said Tuesday that he hopes to have Lamb (hand) back in the lineup for the start of the Dodgers series Friday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

With that, Hale effectively ruled Lamb out as a starting option for the remainder of the Brewers series. Lamb jammed his hand last week in Toronto, but the team is so confident that it's just a bruise that they've deemed an MRI unnecessary. The 25-year-old Lamb is in the midst of a true breakout campaign, batting .284/.362/.597 with 21 homers and 65 RBI through 94 games.

Analysis: 

Chris Johnson
Marlins' Chris Johnson: Scratched from Tuesday's lineup
Chris Johnson, 1B, MIA
7/26/2016
News: Johnson was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a left foot injury, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Johnson fouled a ball off his foot Saturday and hasn't played since. Miguel Rojas is now slated to play first base Tuesday with Derek Dietrich at second base, batting fifth. Justin Bour (ankle) is making progress toward a rehab assignment, and once he returns, Johnson will presumably go back to playing exclusively against lefties.
