FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Nick Castellanos is not in the Tigers starting lineup on Monday.

Castellanos hasn't had a day off yet this season, so manager Brad Ausmus is going to park him on the bench for now. He may be used as a pinch-hitter late if the Tigers need him. Hernan Perez will handle the work at the hot corner Monday. Analysis: Howard Bender

Chase Headley (rest) is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Monday.

Just a simple day off for Headley so make those lineup adjustments. Alex Rodriguez will take over at third base while Carlos Beltran works as the designated hitter. Analysis: Howard Bender

J.J. Hardy (shoulder) said he hopes that he can get back to his hitting progression this week. There's still no real timetable on his return to games.

The Orioles are still holding out hope for an early-May return though it now appears that Hardy's hitting work will be put on hold until the end of the week. They team doesn't expect a long rehab assignment once he does start up minor league games, but they still have to get him there. Analysis: Howard Bender

Rajai Davis (groin) is not in the Tigers starting lineup on Monday.

Davis pulled up lame with a groin issue during Sunday's game and will be considered day-to-day for now. It's actually a real shame as he was seeing regular playing time against right-handers over Anthony Gose and enjoyed a three-hit day when the injury occurred.  Analysis: Howard Bender
