Mets' David Wright: Unavailable Sunday, possibly Monday as well

News: Wright (neck) will not be in the starting lineup Sunday, and may be unavailable Monday as well, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Wright was sent for a more thorough medical evaluation Sunday in an effort to further diagnose the neck ailment that held him out of Saturday's contest. At this point, a multi-game absence could be a best-case scenario, as a DL stint is certainly in play. Per Adam Rubin, the injury is not related to the back issue that forced Wright to miss nearly all of 2015, but it may have something to do with the shoulder soreness he's been experiencing. Look for more clarity on the situation to surface over the coming days. At this point, however, Wright appears to be a risky option to lock into next week's lineups.

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.

News: Escobar is day-to-day with a bruised left wrist, Pedro Moura of the LA Times reports.

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.

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.

Evan Scribner
Mariners' Evan Scribner: Moved to 60-day DL

3:34 PM
News: Scribner (back) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday.

Scribner has been sidelined since early March due to back problems, so he's already missed the 60-day minimum and can be activated whenever he returns to full health. By moving Scribner to the 60-day DL, the Mariners were able to open up a 40-man roster spot for utility man Patrick Kivlehan, who was acquired from the Rangers on Sunday.

Dustin Ackley

News: Ackley suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Rays and will undergo an MRI, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Ackley said he felt his shoulder pop out when he dove back into first base while attempting to retrieve a pickoff throw, which resulted in the Yankees bringing the ailing Mark Teixeira (neck) into the game late as a defensive replacement. Manager Joe Girardi told the media that it's a "distinct possibility" that Ackley will have to head to the DL, but the Yankees won't make a decision on that front until the results of the MRI are read.

Brad Boxberger
Rays' Brad Boxberger: Will be activated Monday

News: Boxberger (abdomen) will be activated from the disabled list Monday, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

Boxberger made his final rehab appearance Friday at Triple-A Durham and came out of it feeling fine, so the 28-year-old will now be cleared to rejoin the Rays' active roster for the first time this season. While he saved 41 games for the Rays in 2015, Boxberger doesn't have much tenure as the team's closer, so it's not a given that he'll regain that role immediately upon returning. Alex Colome has been magnificent as the Rays' ninth-inning man this season, logging a 1.23 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 22 innings.

Ryan Webb
Rays' Ryan Webb: Placed on DL with pectoral strain

News: Webb was placed on the DL on Sunday due to a right pectoral strain, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

The 30-year-old hasn't appeared in the last three games, but the Rays provided no indication he was dealing with an injury. With Webb heading to the DL, Brad Boxberger (abdomen) will be activated Monday in a corresponding move.

Analysis: 

Christian Bergman
Rockies' Christian Bergman: Throws off flat ground Sunday
Christian Bergman, RP, COL
2:50 PM
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.
