Starling Marte (side) is not in the Pirates lineup on Monday.

Marte left Sunday's game in the middle of an at-bat after feeling discomfort on his left side. It is thought to be muscle related and he will be re-evaluated today to see the extent of the injury or discomfort. More should be known in the next couple of days. Analysis: Matt Selz

Derek Norris is leading off for the Padres on Monday.

It's not everyday that you see a catcher in the leadoff spot for a team. San Diego's offense has been only okay this season, after all of the high profile off-season pick ups, ranking in the middle of the pack in the National League in runs scored and towards the bottom in AVG. Norris has not hit lead off all season but has hit second 33 times and on in the year he is batting .241 with 11 homers and 45 RBIs. Analysis: Matt Selz

Tigers claimed first baseman Marc Krauss off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays.

Detroit is desperate to replace the injured Miguel Cabrera at first base. Krauss is closer to just another warm body than a replacement for Miggy. In 15 games this season between the Angels and Rays he is hitting .133 and one home with six RBI. The Tigers will have to make a corresponding move once Krauss joins the team. Analysis: Matt Selz

Jed Lowrie is fielding grounders at shortstop prior to Monday's game.

Lowrie had thumb surgery to repair a torn ligament earlier this season and is getting ever closer to returning to the Astros. Aside from fielding grounders he has also been swinging a fungo prior to games this weekend. Lowrie is still a few weeks away from returning but the bigger question is where he plays once he's back. All indications are that he will be a bench player given that Correa and Altuve are now entrenched in the middle infield for the Astros. Analysis: Matt Selz

Nationals recall Sammy Solis from Triple-A Syracuse.

Solis was called up to cover David Carpenter's roster spot while he is on the Paternity List for a few days. Solis was up with the big club earlier in the season and did well until his final two outings in which he got hit pretty good giving up five runs in three innings. Solis should be optioned back down once Carpenter returns. Analysis: Matt Selz
