Gonzalez appeared to hurt himself running down the first base line. Hopefully this is not an injury that will require him to miss much time. He is batting .253 with 26 RBI and eight home runs in 296 at bats this season.
Russell fouled a ball off his heel Saturday. The soreness got increasingly worse on Sunday so he left the game. His removal was precautionary per the Cubs, so consider Russell day-to-day. Javier Baez is likely to be the next man up at shortstop for any amount of time that Russell may miss.
There are little details known about the injury but obviously he will not be returning today. We will update his status as more information is known.
It is unclear what the injury is but it seems likely that his exit from the game was due to injury and not a trade. We will update his status as more is known.
Guyer seems to just be getting a day of rest today and as a result Corey Dickerson will shift into left field and Oswaldo Arcia will be the DH. Arcia is coming off a two-hit performance yesterday and he will look to keep that going as he takes on lefty Jess Hahn today.
Morrison will miss his sixth straight game and it remains unclear if he will need a DL stint as a result of this injury. Steve Pearce has seen the bulk of the playing time in his absence at first base.
Boxberger has thrown only .2 innings this season and that is likely why the Rays are playing it slow with his rehab. He has already made two rehab appearances and is likely to make several more prior to returning to the club.
Mayers was a third round pick in 2013 and this start will be his major league debut. Across AA and AAA this season, he has a 2.62 ERA with 86 strikeouts in 106.2 innings.
