News: Dietrich's X-rays on his head came back negative, but he will still be evaluated overnight in Atlanta.

Dietrich was in the dugout when a foul ball struck him on the back of the head. Amid concussion and other concerns, Dietrich was removed from the game and taken back to be evaluated by team doctors. He is still considered day-to-day, but it is unlikely that he'll be in the Marlins lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pirates.

David Wright
Mets' David Wright: Needs 48 hours for medication to take effect
David Wright, 3B, NYM
5/29/2016
News: Wright (neck) expected to not be available until at least Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

Manager Terry Collins said that Wright's neck discomfort is being treated by anti-inflammatory medication that takes 48 hours to take full effect. He will be reevaluated Tuesday by team doctors when the medication is fully working. Wilmer Flores will likely continue to start in Wright's place at 3rd base while he recovers.

Brandon McCarthy
Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: To face live hitting Monday
Brandon McCarthy, SP, LAD
5/29/2016
News: McCarthy (elbow) will face live batters Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Bay Area News Group reports.

If all goes well with the live bullpen session, it's possible he will head out on a rehab assignment not too far down the road. The veteran hurler is still expected to return in early July despite a minor setback earlier in his rehab, but McCarthy's status should continue to be updated as he draws closer to a return from the disabled list.

Trayce Thompson
Dodgers' Trayce Thompson: Available off the bench Sunday

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.

Jhonny Peralta
Cardinals' Jhonny Peralta: Suffers setback with cut thumb
Jhonny Peralta, SS, STL
5/29/2016
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.

Analysis: 

Hyun-Jin Ryu
Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Suffers setback with shoulder
Hyun-Jin Ryu, SP, LAD
5/29/2016
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.

Analysis: 

Christian Bergman
Rockies' Christian Bergman: Throws off flat ground Sunday
Christian Bergman, RP, COL
5/29/2016
News: Bergman (oblique) threw off flat ground Sunday, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

It's Bergman's first flat-ground activity since the Rockies placed him on the DL back on May 20, but there's still no timetable for the right-hander's return. Once he completes a couple of rehab outings to show that he's back to full health, Bergman will likely serve as a long man out of the Rockies' bullpen.

Jim Johnson
Braves' Jim Johnson: Hopes to come off DL on Friday
Jim Johnson, RP, ATL
5/29/2016
News: Johnson (groin) is hoping to come off the disabled list in advance of Friday's game against the Dodgers, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

Johnson indicated his rehab is progressing as anticipated, and he's already tossed two innings during minor-league assignments. He plans to pitch in games Tuesday and Wednesday with Triple-A Gwinnett, and after resting Thursday, he could be available right away if he indeed rejoins the Braves on Friday.

Analysis: 

Giancarlo Stanton
Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton: Will take pre-game BP
Giancarlo Stanton, RF, MIA
5/29/2016
News: Stanton (side), who is out of Sunday's lineup, plans to take batting practice prior to the game, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

If everything goes well for Stanton, the hope is that he'll be able to return to action during the upcoming four-game series against the Pirates. Stanton is currently scheduled to miss his fifth straight game Sunday, but seems to be trending in the right direction. Fantasy owners may stand to benefit by checking out the Marlins lineup Monday before make a decision on Stanton for the upcoming lineup period.

Analysis: 

Cesar Vargas
Padres' Cesar Vargas: Placed on DL with shoulder issue
Cesar Vargas, SP, SD
5/29/2016
News: Vargas was moved to the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to right elbow soreness, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

While an official replacement hasn't been named, MLB.com's AJ Cassavell pegged Colin Rea as the likely candidate. Vargas lasted just 1.2 innings Saturday while allowing seven runs on six hits and two walks, suggesting something could be wrong. That appears to be the case, and he will now turn his focuses to getting healthy for a return from the disabled list, with June 13 serving as his first eligible day for activation.
