Ryan Braun Headshot

Braun left Monday's game against the Reds in the sixth inning with a sore foot, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 11:30 pm (EST)
Braun fouled multiple pitches off his foot earlier in the game, which led it to tighten up as the night progressed. With the Brewers up big, manager Craig Counsell decided to finish the game with Jesus Aguilar at first base and Eric Thames in left field. Had the game been closer than 10-4, Braun may have stayed in the game, but in a blowout, the club decided to play it safe with their star slugger. Consider him day-to-day, but there's no indication this injury will cause Braun to miss any sort of significant time.
Rich Hill Headshot

Hill (finger) will throw without the bandage covering his blister on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 8:44 pm (EST)
Hill has been throwing with a bandage for the last few days. This bullpen session will likely determine whether or not Hill is ready to go on a rehab assignment. If so, an early May return to the rotation is possible, but given the consistent struggles Hill has had with blisters since last season, it's hard to be optimistic until his return is confirmed.
Rookie Davis Headshot

Davis (forearm) has been confirmed as the Reds starter for Wednesday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

Added Yesterday 8:17 pm (EST)
Davis's return will push Tim Adelman back to Friday, and Cody Reed into the bullpen.
Cody Reed Headshot

Reed will be moved back to the Reds' bullpen, with Rookie Davis coming off the DL to start on Wednesday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. Tim Adelman will stick in the rotation and start Friday.

Added Yesterday 8:14 pm (EST)
Reed had a disastrous start Saturday against the Cubs, so this move was predictable once it became clear that Davis was ready to return from the DL.
Devin Mesoraco Headshot

Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) is targeting a Friday return from the DL, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

Added Yesterday 8:11 pm (EST)
Mesoraco's final day of his rehab assignment is Tuesday, but the Reds won't activate him until after their off-day Thursday. The big question for the Reds is whether they'll keep three catchers, or otherwise try to sneak Rule 5 pick Stuart Turner through waivers, assuming the Twins simply don't claim Turner when he's offered back.
Matt Barnes Headshot

Barnes has been suspended four games for intentionally throwing at Manny Machado, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 6:32 pm (EST)
Barnes will immediately appeal the suspension, so he won't have to sit out until a verdict is given. He'll likely have to miss a few games eventually.
Miguel Sano Headshot

Sano has been suspended for one game by MLB after his actions during Saturday's bench-clearing incident with the Tigers, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. However, he's appealing the suspension and is in Monday's lineup against Texas, playing third base and batting third in the order.

Added Yesterday 6:17 pm (EST)
After Matt Boyd threw a pitch that went behind him, Sano was ejected after he struck Tigers catcher James McCann in the chest protector with a straight right hand as the two argued. Boyd was ejected for intentionally throwing at Sano.
Silvino Bracho Headshot

Bracho was recalled by the Diamondbacks from Triple-A Reno on Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 5:45 pm (EST)
Bracho's promotion allows Arizona fill the roster spot left open by Shelby MIller's trip to the disabled list. The 24-year-old right-hander has gotten off to a nice start with Triple-A Reno in 2017, as he has yet to allow an earned run in 6.2 innings of work.
Zack Cozart Headshot

Cozart (wrist) will start at shortstop and bat seventh in the order Monday against the Brewers, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

Added Yesterday 4:39 pm (EST)
Cozart was scratched from the lineup ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Cubs with a sore left wrist, but it appears his removal was mostly precautionary. After completing batting practice without any apparent issues Monday, Cozart should be good to go for the Reds' six-game slate this week. The veteran shortstop is off to a tremendous start to the campaign, batting .370 with eight extra-base hits and nine RBI.
Kyle Zimmer Headshot

Zimmer was placed on the 7-day DL with shoulder soreness, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Added Yesterday 4:27 pm (EST)
Zimmer left his last start after just one inning due to shoulder soreness, and given his injury history, the Royals are taking no chances with him. The move is retroactive to April 21, but it's more than likely that the Royals will take it slow with the activation of the 25-year-old, who has pitched fewer than 100 total innings since 2014 thanks to a variety of injuries. It's currently unclear how long the shoulder ailment will keep him sidelined.
