Hyun-Soo Kim Headshot

Kim is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.

Added 11:50 am (EST)
Kim was curiously bypassed for a start Saturday with the Red Sox bringing a right-hander in Steven Wright to the hill, but it's less surprising that he's on the bench again Sunday with lefty Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound for the home team. Craig Gentry will get the starting nod in left field and should continue to eat up most of the at-bats against left-handed pitching.
Seth Smith Headshot

Smith (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.

Added 11:47 am (EST)
Smith is still nursing a sore hamstring, but even if healthy, he likely would have sat out anyway Sunday with left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez twirling for the Red Sox. With Smith out in the series finale, Mark Trumbo will cover right field, opening up a spot in the lineup at designated hitter for Trey Mancini.
Jedd Gyorko Headshot

Gyorko is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Added 11:46 am (EST)
Despite the fact that he's swinging a hot stick (six hits in his last three games), Gyorko will get the day off Sunday against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers. In his absence, Greg Garcia will draw the start at third base.
Yadier Molina Headshot

Molina is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Added 11:43 am (EST)
Following Saturday's impressive performance in which he recorded three hits and raised his season average to .306, Molina will received a day of rest Sunday. Eric Fryer will take over behind the plate.
Sandy León Headshot

Leon is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Added 11:39 am (EST)
After recording five hits in 10 at-bats in the Red Sox's first two games of the season, Leon has experienced a major slump at the dish, going 4-for-36 (.111 average). Leon's ongoing struggles may have paved the way for Christian Vazquez to turn the catching situation into a timeshare, as Vazquez will now pick up his third start in the last six games.
Jett Bandy Headshot

Bandy is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Added 11:39 am (EST)
With both catchers swinging a hot bat, the Brewers will continue to utilize a catching timeshare between Bandy and Manny Pina. Pina will draw the start Sunday, but Bandy should be back in action within the next couple of days.
Matt Wisler Headshot

Wisler was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.

Added 11:36 am (EST)
Wisler was in competition for the team's final starting rotation spot during spring training, but was ultimately beat out by Mike Foltynewicz. In three starts with Triple-A Gwinnett, the 24-year-old posted a 3.50 ERA and an 11:4 K:BB ratio over 18 innings. He'll round out the back-end of the Braves' bullpen.
JaCoby Jones Headshot

Jones (face) will undergo a CT scan when the team returns to Detroit, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Added 11:36 am (EST)
Jones was diagnosed with a lip laceration after being hit by a pitch in Saturday's game, and he was placed on the DL before Sunday's game. Jones said Sunday his teeth were hurting on the left side of his face, but he's glad none of those teeth were knocked out. With Jones out, Andrew Romine and Mikie Mahtook should see more time in the Detroit outfield.
David Price Headshot

Price (elbow) is scheduled to throw 45-to-50 pitches in a bullpen session Monday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Added 11:35 am (EST)
Assuming he feels fine coming out of Monday's workout, it will likely be the fourth final bullpen session for Price before he's cleared to head out on a rehab assignment in the minors. Since Price was sidelined throughout Grapefruit League play with the elbow soreness, he'll likely need several starts across multiple affiliates in order to build up his arm strength, so it's possible he won't be activated from the disabled list until mid-May.
Domingo Santana Headshot

Santana is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Added 11:32 am (EST)
Hitless in his last 19 at-bats, Santana will get the day off Sunday to rest up. Eric Thames will take his spot in right field. Expect Santana to be back in the lineup Monday against the Reds.
