    Velazquez isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Oakland, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Pederson is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres, according to Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

    Pederson rarely faces left-handers, so it should come as no surprise that he is being held out with southpaw Blake Snell on the bump for the opponent. Luis Gonzalez will start in left field in Pederson's place.

    Royals' Nate Eaton: Scores three times Sunday
    21h ago

    Eaton went 2-for-3 with a triple, a double, a walk and three runs scored in Sunday's 13-5 win over the Red Sox.

    Eaton came around to score each time he got on base in his first multi-hit game in the majors. The 25-year-old outfielder is batting .238 with a home run, a triple, a double, three RBI and four runs scored through seven contests. He's started three of the Royals' last four games in right field, but it's unclear how manager Mike Matheny will balance playing time for Eaton and Kyle Isbel with MJ Melendez commanding a near-everyday role in one of the corner outfield spots.

    Maile went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk during Sunday's 1-0 win over the Astros.

    The Guardians were unable to generate much offensive production during Sunday's matchup, but Maile plated the team's only run with his solo blast in the bottom of the fifth inning. The 31-year-old's playing time has remained sporadic recently, but he's gone 5-for-9 with a homer, a double, four RBI and a run over his last three games.

    Melendez hit an RBI single in the third inning before drilling a three-run shot in the fifth. He later added two RBI sacrifice flies in the contest. After a nine-game homerless drought in which Melendez went 7-for-33 (.212), he has three long balls and 10 RBI over his last four appearances. On the year, the 23-year-old rookie is slashing .236/.320/.442 with 29 extra-base hits and 38 RBI through 78 games.

    Godoy was removed in the sixth inning of Sunday's 8-1 win over the Orioles due to heat illness and general body cramping, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. He went 0-for-2 with an RBI before departing.

    Godoy was making his first start for Pittsburgh after being claimed off waivers from the Twins on Friday. The Pirates are listing him as day-to-day, but assuming he's feeling better after getting properly hydrated, Godoy should be ready to go for Monday's series opener in Arizona. He may continue to split time behind the plate with Jason Delay while both are healthy and available.

    Brown went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Giants on Sunday.

    Brown's eighth-inning blast gave the Athletics some fleeting hope of a comeback and served as his fifth time leaving the yard in the last seven games. The 30-year-old is hitting .391 (9-for-23) over that span, boosting his season average (.238) to its highest point since April 14.

    Miranda went 2-for-5 with one RBI in Sunday's loss against the Blue Jays.

    The 24-year-old continues to rake, with Sunday marking his second straight two-hit effort. Now hitting .352 since the beginning of July, Miranda is living up to his prospect pedigree. The Twins have moved him more regularly into the cleanup spot in the order, and that has allowed him to rank fourth in the majors in RBI since the beginning of July.

    For the second time in as many days, Arraez notched three hits, increasing his average to an AL-leading .329 clip. While his performance this season has been admirable, it may be time to sell high as he has overperformed his xSLG and xwOBA dispite hitting just six home runs, and he is drastically overperforming his xBA of .285.

Guillorme, meanwhile, was included in the lineup in each of the last seven contests, a stretch in which the Mets faced six right-handers and one southpaw. He recorded only five hits in 26 at-bats during that span, but the Mets value the smooth defense Guillorme brings in the infield.

    Maton got his big day started with a two-run shot in the fourth inning followed by RBI hits in the seventh and eighth frames. The 25-year-old has made the most out of his limited MLB action this season, going 6-for-10 with four extra-base hits and eight RBI. Expect him to carve out some more playing time if he continues swinging a hot bat.

    After hitting just .182 in his first seven games back from Triple-A, DeJong showed up in big fashion Sunday. With a home run, a double, and seven combined runs and RBI, DeJong finally showed a glimpse of the 2019 self who mashed 30 home runs. The shortstop slugged .552 in Triple-A over 51 games this season, so it is possible he has regained his form and could provide decent power for the Cardinals down the stretch.

After receiving an anti-inflammatory injection, the team is hoping he'll be able to return from the IL without need of a rehab assignment. "Hopefully it's a 10-day stint and he's back at it," interim manager John Schneider said this weekend. "It was [getting better.] I think it was just happening slowly.

    Heyward has one season left on the eight-year deal he signed with the Cubs back in December of 2015, but the veteran has had a tough couple years and does not fit into the Cubs' rebuilding plans, so the two sides will part ways at some point in the not-too-distant future.

He was diagnosed with a strain in the surgically repaired tendon in June, but after a four-week shutdown period, he was cleared to start throwing again. Boyd appears to have navigated bullpen sessions without any setbacks, so facing hitters likely marks the final hurdle he'll need to clear before heading out on what could be an extended minor-league rehab assignment. The 31-year-old southpaw may not have enough time to build up for a starting role, but he could prove to be a useful asset out of the Seattle bullpen down the stretch.

    Reds' Donovan Solano: Takes seat against righty
    4h ago

    Solano is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

    Solano went 5-for-25 with two extra-base hits and three walks while starting in each of the past seven games, but he'll take a seat Monday with right-hander Chris Bassitt toeing the rubber for the Mets. The righty-hitting Solano will primarily handle a short-side platoon role at designated hitter moving forward, but his ability to play second base and third base will occasionally allow him to pick up work against righties when Jonathan India and Kyle Farmer need days off.

  • Franmil Reyes CHC DH
    Cubs' Franmil Reyes: Claimed by Cubs
    5h ago

    Reyes was claimed off waivers by the Cubs on Monday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    After being designated for assignment by the Guardians on Saturday, Reyes has found a new home in Chicago. The 27-year-old has struggled to a .213/.254/.350 slash line this year over 263 at-bats in 70 games this year, all of which are the lowest marks of his five-year career. It's unclear whether he will report to Triple-A Iowa with his new organization or join the big-league roster, as he still has two minor-league options remaining. With 101 career homers over 481 games, Reyes possesses superb power and could be a mainstay in the Cubs lineup if he can return to form down the stretch and into next season.
