Yankees' Conor Mullee: Reports to Triple-A
Conor Mullee, RP, NYY
7:00 AM
News: Mullee (hand) joined the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre roster Monday, LoHud.com reports.

It remains unclear at this point if it's just a rehab assignment, as the Yankees could eventually call the 28-year-old back up when he's healthy. Mullee has allowed one run in three innings in the big leagues this year, but has been excellent at the Triple-A level with a 0.52 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 34.1 innings.

Andres Blanco
Phillies' Andres Blanco: Out six weeks
Andres Blanco, 2B, PHI
5:20 AM
News: Blanco will have a pin inserted into his broken left index finger during surgery on Wednesday, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Blanco, who was placed on the disabled list Monday, suffered the injury making a tag play at third base Sunday. He is expected to miss at least six weeks. Taylor Featherston was called up to assume Blanco's utility role with the Phillies.

Jordan Zimmermann
Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann: To make another rehab start
Jordan Zimmermann, SP, DET

News: Zimmerman (neck) will make at least one more rehab appearance before returning to Detroit, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Zimmerman took the hill at Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, pitching four scoreless innings while striking out two and walking none. While it was certainly an encouraging outing, the Tigers likely want to build up his arm strength before bringing him back from the disabled list.

Prince Fielder
Rangers' Prince Fielder: Expected to undergo surgery this week
Prince Fielder, DH, TEX
2:28 AM
News: Fielder (neck) is expected to undergo surgery later in the week, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The Rangers were hoping Fielder would be able to avoid surgery for the herniated disc in his neck, but after a meeting with another doctor Monday, it's been recommended that he undergoes what would be a season-ending procedure. The team has yet to offer official confirmation, but at this point it seems all but inevitable that Fielder remains sidelined until 2017. Assuming that is indeed the case, Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar will continue to serve as the top options at first base and designated hitter.

Analysis: 

Daniel Norris
Tigers' Daniel Norris: To make another rehab start
Daniel Norris, SP, DET
2:28 AM
News: Norris (oblique) will make at least one more rehab start before returning to the Tigers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

While Norris hasn't experienced a setback, he was shelled in his last outing Saturday, allowing five earned runs and three walks in 4.2 innings of work at Triple-A Toledo. It appears as though the Tigers weren't satisfied with that performance, so he'll take the hill again later in the week before the team makes a call on his status.

Analysis: 

Cameron Maybin
Tigers' Cameron Maybin: Day-to-day with strained back
Cameron Maybin, CF, DET
2:28 AM
News: Maybin, who is not in Monday's lineup, is considered day-to-day with a back strain, George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Maybin was held out of action Sunday, and he'll miss a second straight contest Monday while battling tightness and discomfort in his back. The Tigers will take a wait-and-see approach to the issue; for now, the hope is that he'll only miss a few days and avoid a DL stint.

Analysis: 

Ubaldo Jimenez
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: To return Tuesday
Ubaldo Jimenez, SP, BAL
2:27 AM
News: Jimenez will come off the paternity list Tuesday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Jimenez will remain on the paternity list for one more day following the birth of his child over the weekend. The expectation as of now is that he'll be in line to start Thursday in Minnesota, but the team has yet to confirm. Jimenez last pitched July 8, when he was shelled for five earned runs on five hits in just 1.1 innings.

Analysis: 

Brett Lawrie
White Sox's Brett Lawrie: Out again Monday
Brett Lawrie, 2B, CHW
2:27 AM
News: Lawrie (hamstring) remains out of the lineup for Monday's series opener against the Cubs.

Monday marks Lawrie's fourth straight absence because of the hamstring issue, but an MRI cleared him of any serious damage. His next chance to play comes Tuesday; for now, Tyler Saladino will replace him at second base and bat ninth for the White Sox.

Analysis: 

Domingo Santana
Brewers' Domingo Santana: Scratched from rehab appearance Monday
Domingo Santana, RF, MIL
2:27 AM
News: Santana (elbow) was scratched from the lineup for Low-A Wisconsin due to tenderness in his elbow/forearm, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Santana made rehab appearances Saturday and Sunday, before being scratched on Monday. During those two games, Santana collected two hits in seven at-bats (.286).

Analysis: 

Marwin Gonzalez
Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Remains out Monday
Marwin Gonzalez, 1B, HOU
2:26 AM
News: Gonzalez (ankle) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez has been bothered by a balky ankle of late, and he'll sit out Monday after departing Sunday's game with discomfort. The Astros will go with utility man Alex Bregman at third base Monday, while Luis Valbuena takes over at first.
