Brandon Drury Headshot

Drury is not in the lineup Monday against the White Sox, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Drury is slumping at the plate as of late (4-for-25 in his past seven games), so he'll get a night off to right the ship. Daniel Descalso will take a turn at the keystone in his stead.

Josh Ravin Headshot

Ravin will likely be sent back to the minors when Logan Forsythe (toe) is activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Nothing has been made official yet, but after Forsythe's rehab appearances over the weekend went off without a hitch, Ravin's demotion is inevitable. Once the move is made official, Ravin will dwell in the minors until the Dodgers require more bullpen depth again.

Tuffy Gosewisch Headshot

Gosewisch was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Gosewisch was just 2-for-28 (.071) across 11 games with the big club before being sent back to Tacoma. The veteran backstop was replaced by fellow catcher Mike Zunino on the roster. He'll continue to serve as organizational catching depth for the Mariners.
5:08 pm (EST)
Hunter Pence Headshot

Pence (hamstring) ran sprints Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Pence anticipated a fairly short stint on the disabled list, but this marks the first time that he's been able to run since being sidelined. It's unclear how close he is to getting back to game action, but more information on that front should emerge in the coming days.
5:03 pm (EST)
Gabriel Ynoa Headshot

Ynoa (hamstring) could be optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after he completes a minor-league rehab assignment, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Everything went well during Ynoa's simulated game Monday, clearing the way for him to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment in the coming days. The Orioles want to keep Ynoa stretched out as a starter once he returns from the disabled list, so this could ultimately mean shipping him back to Norfolk once he's ready. More should be known after his rehab stint is finalized.
5:03 pm (EST)
Brett Anderson Headshot

Anderson (back) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

This is the first reported progress Anderson has made since landing on the disabled list on May 7. It's unclear how close the southpaw is to returning to the rotation, but more details should emerge once he takes the next step in his recovery process.
5:01 pm (EST)
James Loney Headshot

Loney was granted his release by the Braves on Monday.

With the Braves bringing Matt Adams to fill their void at first base, Loney saw the writing on the wall that his services were no longer needed. His vast big-league experience and the .704 OPS he posted with the Mets last season make it hard to believe that he'll have a very hard time finding a new home in free agency.
4:55 pm (EST)
Dylan Floro Headshot

Floro was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Floro was mauled for five runs in just two innings of work Sunday, so the Cubs opted to send him back to the minors for more seasoning. He could return to the big leagues relatively soon if more bullpen arms are needed in Chicago thanks to his passable performance with the Rays last season. Zac Rosscup will take his place on the major-league roster.
4:52 pm (EST)
Ryan Flaherty Headshot

Flaherty will report to extended spring training after receiving a PRP injection in his shoulder Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

This pretty much confirms Flaherty will be sidelined for longer than the minimum ten days, as his new timetable has him sidelined for at least 2-to-3 weeks. Flaherty wasn't doing much before the injury, as he was slashing just .233/.324/.267 with a measly three RBI, so this isn't too big of a loss fantasy-wise. Paul Janish will serve as the Orioles' utility infielder with Flaherty on the shelf.
