Bautista is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox and says his sore right shoulder is pain free after a cortisone shot. Bautista, who had the injection Sunday, said he was ''encouraged'' after making approximately 25 throws at around 90 feet before taking batting practice, the most he's thrown in more than a month.

6:35 ET

Impact: Bautista hasn't been able to play the outfield since April 21, when he strained his shoulder making a throw to first base.

Photo of Giancarlo Stanton


Stanton was 2 for 4 and hit his 13th homer Monday at Pittsburgh.

6:13 ET

Adrian Beltre , 3B

Beltre was 2 for 4 with a home run Monday at Cleveland.

5:32 ET

St. Louis

Gonzales won't throw for about three weeks because of a shoulder injury. St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak said Tuesday an MRI showed the 23-year-old left-hander has an impingement. Gonzales is on the roster of Triple-A Memphis, and he skipped a start in late April. Mozeliak says Gonzales will be re-evaluated in a week to 10 days.

6:29 ET

Impact: Selected with the 19th overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft, Gonzales was among the spring-training contenders for the fifth starting spot. Gonzales was 4-2 with a 4.19 ERA in five starts for St. Louis last year and pitched in relief in the postseason. He is 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in six minor league starts this year.

6:34 ET

Impact: Finnegan was recalled Monday and he pitched three hitless innings in relief of Jeremy Guthrie during the Royals' 14-1 loss to New York.

Jeremy Guthrie , P

5:18 ET

Brett Gardner , LF

New York

Gardner was 2 for 4 with his eighth double and fourth home run Monday against Kansas City.

5:14 ET

6:12 ET

Impact: Alvarez has found his groove over his last eight games, going 11 for 29 with four home runs and six RBIs.

Los Angeles

The Angels sent Cron back to the minors Tuesday.

8:55 ET

Impact: Cron is batting just .204 this season with the Angels, failing to capitalize on an opportunity to become the Angels' everyday designated hitter after Josh Hamilton's departure for Texas.

Carlos Martinez , P

Photo of Alberto Callaspo


A proposed multiplayer trade between the Dodgers and Braves that would have sent third baseman Juan Uribe to Atlanta and infielder Alberto Callaspo to Los Angeles has been vetoed by Callaspo.

8:55 ET

Impact: The deal collapsed because of collective bargaining agreement provision that any player who became a major league free agent and cannot be traded without his approval until after June 15. Callaspo agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Braves in December after spending last season with Oakland.

6:09 ET

Impact: Tomas is 18 for 41 (.439) over his last nine games.

Johnny Cueto , P

Photo of Johnny Cueto


Cueto will miss at least one more start after an MRI found inflammation in his pitching elbow. Results on Tuesday showed no major damage in the right elbow. Cueto, who won 20 games last season, had to skip a scheduled start over the weekend because of stiffness.

5:02 ET

Impact: Manager Bryan Price says Cueto will throw in the next few days and see how the elbow feels. If the stiffness is gone, he will have a bullpen session. The Reds would then consider when to let him start again.

The Orioles designated Lavarnway for assignment. The seldom-used Lavarnway was batting .107 in 10 games.

6:32 ET

Impact: Manager Buck Showalter said, ''I just don't think Ryan's swing and the things that he's capable of doing are conducive to playing once a week.'' Showalter hopes Lavarnway will accept a spot on the Norfolk roster.

Steve Clevenger , C

Stanton was horrendous again Sunday.

4:09 ET
