Kolten Wong Headshot

Wong (elbow) remains day-to-day and manager Mike Matheny reports that he is "very optimistic" that he won't be sidelined long, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 10:44 pm (EST)
Matheny noted that Wong had already showed improvement overnight from Saturday to Sunday, but he was still held out of Sunday's contest as a precaution. The affected elbow is on the second baseman's non-throwing arm, which plays a part in the manager's prognosis of a quick return to action. Wong did report feeling a "pop" in the elbow while taking warmup swings in the on-deck circle before his first at-bat Saturday, but there is no structural damage feared at the moment.
Tyler Lyons Headshot

Lyons (ribs) threw 58 pitches without setbacks in Saturday's rehab start for Double-A Springfield but will not join the Cardinals for their trip to Los Angeles, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 10:37 pm (EST)
Lyons allowed two runs on three hits over five innings while striking out three against Northwest Arkansas, and he got 44 of his 58 offerings into the strike zone. Despite the sharp effort, manager Mike Matheny opted to keep Lyons behind for additional monitoring by the medical staff. For his part, the 29-year-old right-hander reports that he's ready to return to action when called upon. "I think I feel good with where I'm at," Lyons said. "I feel good with my pitches. I think my body is a lot closer to where I wanted it to be. I think it's just one of those things that will keep getting better. But there's no big need for [more] rehab in my opinion."
Corey Kluber Headshot

Kluber (back) will head out on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 7:58 pm (EST)
Kluber is expected to throw 70 to 75 pitches in his first start for Columbus, and how he feels after that will determine his path going forward. If all goes well, look for Kluber to make a return to Cleveland's rotation in the first week of June.
A.J. Pollock Headshot

Pollock (groin) has started light jogging and is progressing well, according to manager Torey Lovullo, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 7:15 pm (EST)
Pollock is currently dealing with a Grade 1 groin strain. Even though that's the lowest severity possible, Pollock is projected to miss at least two weeks with the injury. There remains an outside chance that he can return this month, but a realistic outlook sees Pollock returning in the first couple weeks of June.
Adonis Garcia Headshot

Garcia (Achilles) was able to run without problems Monday and could make his return when eligible Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 7:08 pm (EST)
This may have been one of those injuries where the club would have waited it out if the disabled list was still at 15 days like in previous years. Atlanta begins a road trip in San Francisco on Friday, and at this point, we should expect Garcia to be back in the lineup for the first game of that series.
Chris Iannetta Headshot

Iannetta is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 5:16 pm (EST)
Iannetta bashed a home run in his return from the disabled list Sunday, but he'll get the night off Monday likely in an effort to ease him back into action. Jeff Mathis will take over behind the dish for the night.
Yasmany Tomás Headshot

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

Added Yesterday 5:13 pm (EST)
Despite being in the midst of a six-game hit streak, Tomas will get the night off Monday. Reymond Fuentes will pick up a start in left field to replace him.
Brandon Drury Headshot

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

Added Yesterday 5:11 pm (EST)
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.
Brett Anderson Headshot

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

Added Yesterday 5:01 pm (EST)
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.
Nori Aoki Headshot

Aoki is not in the lineup Monday against the Tigers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 4:21 pm (EST)
Aoki is just 6-for-44 (.136) with one RBI since April 28, so he'll head to the bench to clear his mind while Marwin Gonzalez draws the start in left field.
