Tyler Wilson Headshot

Wilson was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

This will be Wilson's third stint with the Orioles this season. He started the year in the bullpen and made a spot start at the beginning of May for the injured Kevin Gausman. He owns a 4.91 ERA with a 5:3 K:BB through 11 big-league innings this season, so he likely won't be used in high-leverage situations, though he will be able to provide length out of the bullpen.

Ian Happ Headshot

Happ is not in the lineup Monday against the Giants.

Happ has forced his way into a prominent role in the Cubs' lineup thanks to a 9-for-26 (.346) showing at the plate since his callup. However, he'll get a chance to rest Monday night with Albert Almora taking over in center field in his stead.
3:19 pm (EST)
Mike Fisher Headshot

Fisher (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's meeting with the Ducks, Robby Stanley of reports.

With Fisher still sidelined, the Preds are suddenly very thin down the middle of their lineup having previously lost Ryan Johansen (thigh) for the rest of the postseason. Despite averaging just under 17 minutes per game, Fisher is scoreless in his 14 playoff appearances. While Nashville haven't needed the 36-year-old in the offensive zone thus far, it could be a different story if the team hopes to lift Lord Stanley's Cup.
3:17 pm (EST)
Anthony Gose Headshot

Gose was assigned to High-A Lakeland on Monday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

After going through a crash course on pitching at extended spring training, Gose has finally received the green light to make his season debut in affiliated ball. The Tigers will have Gose work primarily as a reliever in the lower minors, but the organization doesn't appear to be closing the door entirely on the 26-year-old playing the outfield. Gose's fastball had been previously clocked in the mid 90s, so if he's able to command his pitches well and develop his secondary offerings, he could move through the farm system quickly.
3:14 pm (EST)
Kyle Schwarber Headshot

Schwarber is not in the lineup Monday against the Giants.

Schwarber is batting just .161 against left-handers this season, so he'll head to the bench for a night off with southpaw Ty Blach taking the hill for San Francisco. Ben Zobrist will move into left fielder to fill the hole there.
3:13 pm (EST)
Logan Shaw Headshot

Shaw (lower body) will miss Monday's matchup with the Predators, Robby Stanley of reports.

Monday will mark Shaw's eighth consecutive missed game due to this lingering lower-body ailment. Even once healthy, the winger may not be able to knock Nicolas Kerdiles out of the game-day lineup. Prior to getting hurt, Shaw was averaging a mere 9:31 of ice time during the postseason and can probably be left off most fantasy lineups even if he does return to action.
3:05 pm (EST)
Héctor Sánchez Headshot

Sanchez (foot, quad) had a setback in his rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A El Paso, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Eric O'Brien of CBS 4 adds that El Paso manager Rod Barajas said that Sanchez left his most recent game due to quad tightness. It's unclear how severe this new ailment is or how long it will be until Sanchez returns to action, but more should be revealed in the coming days.
3:04 pm (EST)
Jacob Turner Headshot

Turner won't be in line to start Tuesday against the Mariners with the Nationals planning to call up Joe Ross from Triple-A Syracuse to take the hill for that contest, Jamal Collier of reports.

After entering the rotation last Wednesday as the Nationals' fifth starter, Turner looked to be in line for a two-start week, but that's no longer on the table with the impending promotion of Ross. Manager Dusty Baker has yet to formally declare that Turner will move back to a long-relief role, so if Ross scuffles in his return to the big club, Turner could be asked to step back into the rotation over the weekend against the Padres.
2:55 pm (EST)
Nolan Fontana Headshot

Fontana was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

He'll replace C.J. Cron on the active roster, giving the Angels some more versatility around the infield. Fontana has carried a .374 on-base percentage over 166 plate appearances with Salt Lake this season, but it's uncertain that he'll receive an opportunity to put his offensive skills on display during his stint with the Angels. He may just be asked to play a depth role at multiple infield spots.
2:47 pm (EST)
C.J. Cron Headshot

Cron was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

The day after he bashed a grand slam, the Angels opted to send the 27-year-old back to the minors. Cron seemed to be finding his stroke at the plate again, hitting safely in his past four games to raise his batting average 16 points, but it seems that the Angels wanted him to work out his struggles with consistent at-bats in the minors. It's unclear how long they plan for him to stay with Salt Lake, but he'll likely need to show that he can hit for power once again if he wants to sniff the majors again. Infielder Nolan Fontana was recalled to take his spot on the roster.
