Ariel Hernandez Headshot

Hernandez was optioned to Double-A Pensacola on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

As expected, the 25-year-old's stint with the Reds was a brief one, as he made just one appearance before being optioned back to Pensacola. Hernandez struck out five and didn't allow a hit through 2.2 innings in his lone outing, and could see another call-up in 2017 if he continues to display impressive stuff. Barrett Astin was recalled to offer another bullpen arm in a corresponding move.

Jurickson Profar Headshot

Profar is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Twins.

With Profar sitting out, the Rangers will start Ryan Rua in left field. Profar's season hasn't gotten off to the best start as he's hitting just .135/.289/.135 after playing in 14 games.

Sami Vatanen Headshot

Vatanen (upper body) will be a game-time decision against Edmonton in Wednesday's Game 1 matchup, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Prior to getting hurt, Vatanen garnered just four helpers during a 17-game goal drought. As such, fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect an offensive explosion from the blueliner once he is cleared for action. Defensively, however, the Finn could make life difficult for Connor McDavid; especially on the penalty kill where he averaged 2:12 of ice time during the regular season.
4:03 pm (EST)
Kyle Seager Headshot

Seager (hip) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's contest with the Tigers, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Seager's hip is reportedly feeling much better than it did on Sunday, but the Mariners will continue to play it safe with their primary third baseman. Consider him day-to-day for now. Taylor Motter will take over at the hot corner for the evening.
4:01 pm (EST)
Jean Segura Headshot

Segura is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff Tuesday against the Tigers, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Segura came off the DL on Tuesday, so it comes as no surprise that the Mariners are including him in the lineup for Tuesday night's game. Segura missed 12 games with a hamstring injury, but will look to get back on track against Jordan Zimmermann and the Tigers.
4:00 pm (EST)
Torey Krug Headshot

Krug told reporters Tuesday that it was a knee injury that caused him to miss the final game of the regular season, as well as the Bruins' entire postseason run.

The severity of Krug's knee ailment has not been revealed, but considering he was skating prior to Boston's elimination from the playoffs, it would appear for the moment that he avoided a serious injury. Krug posted career highs in assists (43) and points (51) in his fourth full season with the Bruins, but also showed a career-worst minus-10 rating. Assuming he works on his defensive game in the offseason, he could soon be one of the NHL's elite blueliners.
3:57 pm (EST)
Jake Odorizzi Headshot

Odorizzi (hamstring) will throw a simulated game Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

If Odorizzi's upcoming workout goes as planned, he'll be on track to return to action Monday. Prior to being placed on the disabled list, Odorizzi had pitched 13 innings over three games, during which he allowed six runs. He's struggled with the long ball in the early stages of the season, as he's given up three home runs over said games.
3:56 pm (EST)
Rick Porcello Headshot

Porcello will make his next start Wednesday against the Yankees, Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports.

Porcello was originally slated to pitch Tuesday's contest against New York, but he'll just move back a day after that game was rained out and postponed until mid-July. It's unclear how this affects the rest of the Red Sox rotation, but more details should come forth soon.
3:52 pm (EST)
Lucas Giolito Headshot

Giolito, 22, has a 6.43 ERA and 16:9 K:BB through 14 innings for Triple-A Charlotte.

Giolito was a surprise inclusion in the deal for Adam Eaton, but perhaps the Nationals knew something that the rest of us did not. Giolito had a poor spring and has been unable to turn it around thus far. Walks continue to plague him, and he's already given up three home runs in three starts this season. The strikeouts are still there, but Giolito still has plenty of kinks to work out before he can return to the big leagues.
